sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Feed The Body, Nourish The Soul
Rating: PG (language)
Summary: Steve Rogers just wanted to sell good, nourishing, cheap food from his food truck. Now the crazy fusion chefs from TOBRU are calling him a hipster, the avant garde restaurant "Shield" across the street has declared war on chains, and...well, then there's Thor, who thinks Steve's habit of licking food is weird.
Warnings: None.
Notes: This was inspired by a post on tumblr, so I can't take credit for the idea. I'm not a chef, I've just read a lot of books about food, so my apologies for any inaccuracies. Also I wanted to say, at the outset, that I have nothing against the Food Network, chain restaurants, or seasoned fries. I actually love seasoned fries.

Also available at AO3.

Blackglass has done a lovely podfic of this fic, and Reena Jenkins has also done a wonderful podfic version!



TOBRU and War On Hunger are usually located next to each other... )

Title: Ironsides
Rating: R (Steve/Tony)
Summary: Antonia Carter Stark takes no shit and no prisoners.
Warnings: Brief mention of torture; brief discussion of intimate partner violence and rape.
Notes: Genderswap! Of the in-this-universe-Tony's-always-been-female kind. Well, in some ways, it's canon...
BETA CREDIT JESUS: [livejournal.com profile] 51stcenturyfox and [livejournal.com profile] kallaneboi made it betta!

Peggy Carter mourned Steve Rogers, of course she did... )

Title: Epilogue
Rating: PG-13 (for swears!)
Summary: After the fighting is over, then come the hot baths, ice packs, resurrection from the dead, political maneuvering, and happy endings (not like that, Tony).
Warnings: Spoilers for the movie; also, this is a fixit.
BETA CREDIT JESUS: [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill inspired and beta'd; [livejournal.com profile] 51stcenturyfox and [livejournal.com profile] neifile7 made it even more awesome.

Epilogue. )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Title: Extremely Hot And Currently Female
Rating: R (Tony/Loki)
Fandom: Avengers; kind of a comicsverse/movieverse mashup (aren't they all)
Summary: Tony knows he shouldn't sleep with Loki, it's just sometimes he's drunk and she's female and he forgets why.
Warnings: Everything is clearly consensual, but there is intoxicated sex, unsafe sex, and semi-public sex. WELL IT'S LOKI YOU GUYS COME ON.
BETA CREDIT JESUS: [livejournal.com profile] neifile7, Claire, and [livejournal.com profile] 51stcenturyfox made it better; [livejournal.com profile] amand_r let me throw initial drafts at her and LOLed.
Notes: I don't speak Tumblr so I don't know how to tell them I did this but the whole story is based on a tumblr post here where the author said "Headcanon: Loki randomly shows up naked and sometimes female whenever he feels like it, and whenever Tony is too drunk to remember why sleeping with the enemy is heavily frowned upon. Tony whines about it in the mornings, but Steve is never sympathetic. They agree that Thor should never be told about it."

Title: Neal Caffrey Versus The BBC
Rating: PG
Warnings: None.
Summary: Neal has a lead on a priceless work of art he wants to recover, and he needs Peter's help.
Notes: This came about as a result of what was actually an Ocean's Eleven reference but could so easily have been a Blake's Seven reference, if Neal Caffrey were a closet fan of classic Beeb scifi.
BETA CREDIT, JESUS: [livejournal.com profile] spiderine, [livejournal.com profile] tzikeh, [livejournal.com profile] neifile7, and [personal profile] girlpearl (who is responsible for inspiring the manip. BLAME HER.)

Title: Lost Loves
Rating: PG
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] juniper200 gave me the idea. [livejournal.com profile] amand_r is to blame for several other elements. This is a crossover but to explain the other fandoms would seriously ruin everything.
Summary: Neal knows a very sad story about a thief and a sailor. Peter's still stuck on pirates.

Warnings: Some gore.

Title: Trying to Communicate
Rating: PG

Title: I Make No Promises As To Historical Veracity
Rating: PG
Summary: Ianto copes by inventing the coffee machine. Gwen copes by crossdressing. Shortfic.
Notes: Written in response to [livejournal.com profile] rm posting a steampunky coffeemaker and demanding a Torchwood steampunk AU. Which is not really AU so much as an unexplored branch, really. The original comment is on that post, this is the expanded and enhanced version.
Warnings: None.

Title: The Quiet Room
Rating: R
Couplings: (please to note that not all of these are ships) Gwen/Owen, Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Jack, Ianto/Gwen/Jack
Summary: "Inside this room, no one talks," Ianto said, his voice carefully neutral. "It isn't allowed. What goes on here stays here and, outside of it, never happened. Other than that there are no rules, in a manner of speaking."
Author's Notes: This was written in response to [livejournal.com profile] exuberantself, who said here: Personally, I "believe" that there is a reasonably large room in the back end of the Hub where there is nothing but a lamp and a very nice bed. Inside the room, no one speaks and there are no consequences. At the end of a particularly trying day, the members of Torchwood Cardiff, in whole or part, go to it. This does not follow the details of the rest precisely, but does chase the spirit of the thing.
Warnings: Infidelity; quasi-public sex.

Now a podfic by [livejournal.com profile] filthgoblin! Also this fic inspired an Avengers fic, The Room Of Requirement.

Title: The Ten Commandments Don't Apply To Angels
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Fandom: Supernatural (Spoilers through the premiere of S5)
Summary: Dean keeps insisting Castiel do things that humans do; sometimes Castiel is grateful for this, and sometimes...not so much. Mild Dean/Castiel.
Warnings: None.
Notes: BETA CREDIT to [livejournal.com profile] 51stcenturyfox and [info - personal] girlpearl, who rock. I suppose this is something of an AU. It'll probably be jossed by Thursday anyway. But it was fun to examine the concept of how an angel might cope with human life.

[livejournal.com profile] sadcypress has podficc'd "The Ten Commandments Don't Apply To Angels", and you can find the recording for download here. It's a great emotive reading and the audio is very clear, so I hope you enjoy it and let her know how she did!

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
-- Samuel Butler

What is written without effort is generally read without pleasure.
-- Samuel Johnson

Same story, different versions, and all are true.
-- POTC: Dead Man's Chest

I am a humble artist
moulding my earthly clod,
adding my labour to nature's,
simply assisting God.
-- Piet Hein

Every archaeologist knows in his heart why he digs. He digs, in pity and humility, that the dead may live again, that what is past may not be forever lost, that something may be salvaged from the wrack of the ages.
-- From "The Testimony of the Spade"

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
-- Francis Bacon

It is better, of course, to know useless things than to know nothing.
-- Seneca epistles 88 45

When asked how she acquired her knowledge of science, Octavia Butler replied, "I read."

Imagination is more important than information.
-- Albert Einstein
