Some days are magic, and I can do anything. The other days, I just have to wait, and hope it comes back.

  1. Summary

    A Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic rock band AU.

    Revanchist (Revan, Alek, Meetra and HK) were rock royalty until a falling-out between Revan and Alek split the band. Meetra recruits one Atton Rand (an ex-Juilliard concert pianist masquerading as a rocker) to replace their missing guitarist, forming The Malak Mistake. Alek is predictably Not Impressed and things... devolve. Not that they started anywhere particularly great to begin with.

  2. Summary

    Light Side male exile Jax Surik, obliviously bi disaster Atton Rand, a whole heap of warm fuzzy feelings and the occasional found-family antics that result from packing a small freighter full of lost Force Sensitives, quirky droids and a grizzled Mandalorian who's too old for this shit. Also, the odd bit of gay porn. And occasionally some angst, because I can't write anything so wholesome without people suffering at some point.

  3. Summary

    Take one anime and manga series based around children's card games. Add one bored writer with a love of Reality Ensuing and hazy memories of the awful OCs created when we were all too young to know any better. Stir in a heaped dose of actions carrying consequences, a lifetime of unresolved issues and an apparent love of watching characters suffer, then shake until blended smoothly.

    The non-wanky version: a blend of anime (sub) and manga verses plus one OC twin sister, five non-canon precursor relics, and a heaping pile of poor decision-making. The focus is mostly on the Doma crew and the Mutous but everyone gets some screentime throughout. Strong warnings on almost everything for abuse, trauma, violence (both implied and explicit) and Season 4 levels of suffering. Written for nobody but myself because projecting suffering onto fictional characters is much cheaper than therapy and serves as excellent practice/experimentation grounds for non-fanfic writing.

    Summary

    Intimacy and romantic relationships are a tricky thing during war. They're even more so when you're a clone and you finally figure out you're really into your Jedi General.

    But that is not going to stop Commander Cody from getting the man he wants, and maybe, along the way, he'll also learn that intimacy and romance and sex come in all kinds of forms.

    Especially when you're dealing with the Negotiator himself, High General Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    Summary

    "You said you could only teach me how to play pazaak. When I felt your thoughts with Kreia, though, she said… said there were other things you thought about. Hyperspace routes. Ticks in the machines. Other… scenarios."

    Meetra has questions about the way Atton shields his thoughts...or so she tells herself.

    "Ugly" by arturas told from Meetra's POV (so go read that first!).

    Summary

    "It had been three days since he’d told her everything. Maybe not everything but certainly the dirtiest part of himself that he had to share, the truth about what he was or rather had been.

    She’d not been shocked. He’d expected her to be it seemed, expected that she’d send him away or worse. And maybe she should have. But when he told her the worst of it, she’d just wanted to touch his face or hold him close, wanted to tell him that it was the past and done and didn’t matter.

    That was a lie of course. You can’t run from your past or your sins. She should know."

    A quick scene of what happens after Atton drops the truth about his past.

    Summary

    Meetra knew it for a dream, but it was the logic of dreaming that, in the moment, this didn't matter.

     

    A regularly scheduled nightmare is interrupted by a pazaak match, and both players discover that some old mental patterns are no longer functioning quite as they used to.

    This originally wanted to be purer PWP but then insisted on growing more substance and getting character-studyish.
