Supplies and Styles: Photography
Word Count: 866
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Non-graphic blood and violence; passing mentions of suicidal feelings; hinted at d/s relationship elements; one scene, while it's not terribly obvious if you don't know the verse and the characters, refers to a recovered addict getting tricked into using drugs.
Notes: I have been meaning to write one of the sections of this story for a while now. None of this is quite what I expected, including that part, but hey, it works.

Five moments time stopped for Nathan. )

Title: no place to call home anymore
Story: This City's Got Grace

Supplies and Styles: N/A
Word Count: 526
Rating: PG
Warnings: Very roundaboutly refers to the aftermath of torture and horrible things, but doesn't go into details. (It's the angel trio, if you've read [profile] thebonesofferalletters' works in this verse.)
Notes: Not a warning but this is, uh. Not a happy story and not a... fair... one? In a lot of ways, to any of the three of them? Basically this is Bobby having a really bad day. I guess caregiver burnout is the best words I've got for it.

In which there is really unhappy nostalgia. )

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Consensual relationship briefly mentioned as starting with the initiating party is underage (17 and 19), and also between two people who are, by mutual agreement, keeping a lot of things from each other, because of dangerous circumstances around them.
Notes: I wrote someone throw me a parade it only took a year and a half. This was written super stream of consciousness well after I should have been asleep, and I'm not rereading it or else I'll never post it, so I'm hoping this makes sense? Meet one half of the sisters that are central to the main story, although it's not actually the one who's a main character.
Also, I need a tag for Darling Grey.

Rating: PG13
Warnings: skip
Child abuse of a nonindicative nature, and the ghost of said abuser showing up to his child; child death (not the main focus, but a good ~150-word side tangent); brief discussion of a facility that tests children with powers (it doesn't go indepth into anything but the testing is clearly unpleasant and unwanted); mentioned consensual possession (by a ghost, of a medium)

Notes: I need a story tag please, mods? (Story title is kind of long so if you want to abbreviate it a 'a little bit of progress', that might be better.)
This is a really new world for me, but I'm rather excited to try and get to writing it, so here goes. :D

In which Caleb and Adrian have issues. )

Rating: G
Warnings: Nothing I can think of.
Notes: I can write. I can totally write. It hasn't been a year since I posted, what are you talking about. Here's hoping this is not a one-time resurgence. Also I am pleased to finally write for this character; she's been mentioned in passing in fics before but I adore her and have been meaning to write about her properly, so here we are. Also, she is British and I am so, so not, so any commentary on what's probably my English-culture-fail is welcome. Or comments in general, but.

In which there is a tiny (well, teenager) Meg. )

Word Count: 1110
Rating: PG
Warnings: A couple of mentions of past child abuse. Also, it's not talked about indepth, but the main character has just been through a traumatic accident and been severely injured and that's a major part of the story.
Notes: Right, so Mal's basically taken over writing this verse and I'm happy to throw my hands up and let them, but this was in my head and I couldn't get it out, so... here? Also I think I have a thing about people accidentally falling into the dream jobs they may or may not have actually dreamed at. *looks at No Child Is Spared and then back at this* Yep, kind of a thing.

In which there is John pre-Percival and his sister. )

Word Count: 277
Rating: G
Warnings: ... villainy... kind of... I don't even know....
Notes: This is entirely and totally Mal's fault and I don't even know what I'm doing. Uh. Can I have a story tag? I guess? No idea if this will ever get more written or not, considering it took me five years to get this into a story, but I kind of have my eye on a couple of saturations for these two.
Also please feel free to tell me if I messed up the pronouns. Or crit me in any other way, I am always crit-open and should probably start mentioning that.

In which we learn how two villains started working together. In some kind of superhero-y alternate world. I don't know what I wrote either. )

Supplies and Styles: Graffiti (I'll have seconds)
Word Count: 606
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: There's a section that deals with sexual assault, generally abusive treatment of people including people treating themselves that way, and murder of sexual assaulters. It's skimmed over pretty lightly, but it's also very much there. Also, playing VERY fast and loose with Christian mythology.
Notes: Need a story tag, please. I am so glad I finally wrote about this girl, though. She is the angel of bodily pleasures, and I adore her even if I'm not entirely sure what's going on in her universe. Also I did not mean to do the second person challenge twice. I just really like second person
