This is what happens when Porn Monday and Fluff Tuesday violently collide and wake up to find it's actually Wednesday and they can't find their pants.

It's a missing scene from One Day We'll Look Back And... (Christycrap, it's got its own tag now)

Pretty much self-indulgent dialogue-only non-porn porn. Rated R, I guess? This takes place during the mythical Belfast visit, not that you can tell where they are at all.

Masterlist for this universe is here.

Title: One Day We'll Look Back And...
Pairing: Dan/Jones
Rating: NC-17
Words: ~8500
Disclaimer: I am playing with other people's property for fun and no profit.
Notes: Written for the [ profile] booshbattle prompt years before the series, early twenties maybe, roadtrip. They're a bit older than that here, though. Welcome to 1998.

My extreme thanks to [ profile] the_reverand (whose entire fault this is, really), [ profile] silent_fields, and [ profile] beansidhe_baby for their help with this, and also a large contingent of LJ and Twitter friends who peeled me off the ceiling more than they should've needed to. Any fail is all mine.

The Nabokov quotation that's mentioned is from this, which has nothing to do with anything except that it's also sort of about a road trip, and what it references in turn is Laurence Sterne's Sentimenal Journey Through France and Italy. There is also a James Joyce bit but that's a spoiler. :) And the cartoon pirate thing is from Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea-- it hadn't been aired in Britain yet so Jones would have only seen the original French version.

This is a portion of the backstory to Someone Like You, but neither depends on the other. Masterlist for this universe is here.

OMG I FAIL AT PORN. Yes, it's porny, but it went and had like, plot and shit (kind of). And I'm not sure it's any good at all, so flist-only. Now public because my flist is smarter than me.


This is the Ned/Vince thing (which is also tangentially a Ned/Rufus thing because I am broken), for which the responsible inspiring parties can either congratulate themselves or heartily facepalm. And dedicated to [ profile] the_reverand for her birthday, even though it's wayyyyy less cool than a bouncy castle and may actually be Old Gregg coming out of a cake all scaly and tutu-wearing.

Title: A Hypothesis of Flight
Pairing: Dan/Jones
Rating: PG-13 for language and sexual references
Words: 5266
Summary: Dan does not want to lead a Movement. He doesn't even really want to move.
Notes: Written for [ profile] lgbtfest. Prompt: 2158. Nathan Barley, Dan/Jones, The incident with the builder and subsequent article force Dan to come to terms with his own sexuality. It’s a topic that has plagued him for most of his life, and he has continually repressed with alcohol and general cynicism. He decides to finally confide his confusion in Jones, who has always been open about his own bisexuality. Could potentially lead to them questioning the true nature of their current relationship, or simply be written as Jones acting as a mentor of sorts.
Disclaimer/credits: Outcast was a real magazine (created by a different Chris Morris than the one who created the show), but had folded by the time this takes place. My apologies also to The Smiths and The Clash. All recognizable characters are the property of their creators and not of me.
Massive, massive thanks to: [ profile] storyfan, [ profile] eggnogged, [ profile] silent_fields, [ profile] waqaychay, [ profile] luridlolly, and [ profile] the_reverand, for hand-holding, idea-bouncing, cheerleading, and other supportive activities. You are all rockstars, as are my Twitter friends and flist for putting up with my blehhhh. However, any fail is mine and mine alone.

Sorry for the repeato-spam if you've seen these, but I'm not backdating in case anyone else wants to. ETA: Just kidding, I'm an idiot and apparently already put a couple of these up here. Oh well.

Who's a lazy-pants about archiving? Yeah, me.

Title: Smoke and Mirrors
Pairings: Dan/Jones and Vince/Howard, with a tiny tiny side order of Dan/Vince and Jones/Howard.
Rating: PG-13
Words: ~12,000
Summary: Paths cross, lips do stuff to other lips, feelings are felt, music is made. May contain chavs, made-up publications, a fully intact fourth wall, and peer pressure from Naboo. May not contain Bollo, who would nevertheless like you to know that Sugar Ape was named after him. Set a bit post-series for NB and post-S3 for Boosh.
Notes: Shiny gold stars to [ profile] waqaychay for the beta, as well as big fat hearts to [ profile] storyfan, [ profile] who_is_small, and [ profile] random_nexus for viewing this mess in its early stages and assuring me it was not a big sinking failboat.

Or non-fics. Sorry I've been out on the town with other fandoms. I don't know where the word list went or where I got it or even how good these are, but here you go. There a couple instances of Bertie/Other, one of which prequels the Dance Card-verse.

and with that ringing endorsement... )

I wrote this for [ profile] booshbattle and I figured I'd pop it up here for posterity. The original with 3% more typos is here.
Rated PG for language and minor drug references. 777 words.
Original prompt was Nathan Barley, Dan/Jones, Jones POV in which he snuggles/makes out with unconscious-in-hospital!Dan.

The Caustic Ticking of the Clock )

For the lovely [ profile] random_nexus-- this is inexcusably late and is my usual long-winded left-field take on the actual request and isn't even properly smutty (or not in any satisfactory way, though there is a smexy part) even though I hinted that it would be and please don't shoot me because ending where it did felt logical. And um, yeah. MADE WITH LOVE.

The request was fluff, snow, hot chocolate, surprises. Holiday plans going all wrong in a way that turns out so very right... which I sort of managed.

This is a late little giftie for [ profile] triedunture! I sort of feel like I'm offering a macaroni picture to Rembrandt here, but it's got scarves and gloves (hats are only implied, sorry) like you wanted and it was made with love.

I wrote this for [ profile] storyfan, who was lovely enough to type it up for me as she had the only copy. May cause sniffles and AWW-ing. Merry Joostermas!

A Star in Paris )
mercyrobot: (yuletide!)

This, THIS, is the Drabble That Ate Prague. In that it's not a drabble at all because it very seriously got away from me. And is a not-so-holiday-themed bundle of holiday joy (I hope) for our very own apple fritter of awesome, [ profile] who_is_small, who will hopefully forgive that this is probably not the interpretation of the prompt she might have expected, and also the dental bills caused by the tooth-rotting fluffitude that ensues. Maybe the smutty part will make up for it. ;)

ETA: Oh, and there's an accidental bit of an Upstairs Downstairs crossover. Pay it no mind, it doesn't know any better and has no real bearing on this fic at all.

A Decent Proposal )

mercyrobot: (yuletide!)

A somewhat cracky little giftie for the lovely [ profile] queen_fiend, who asked: Does Madeline ever find out about Spode's Eulalie thing? What does she think? and who is obviously awesome because she got me to kinda sorta write het. :D

Eulalie and the Kitten )

mercyrobot: (top hats)
Lame title is lame.
1157 words of the post-'Last Laugh' hurt/comfort that [ profile] mshepley called for.
Is PG-rated slashy.
Thanks to [ profile] madlovescience for eyeballing it! Any fail is my own.

For the [ profile] indeedsir Halloween challenge, just in time!

Thanks to [ profile] storyfan and [ profile] random_nexus for beta business and to [ profile] janeturenne for handing me the Hound of the Baskervilles reference on a silver platter when I couldn't come up with anything decent. The rest is all my fault!

~9500 words, PG for some ooky-spooky stuff. (Of course there's slash.)
The Ghosts of Brinkley Court )
mercyrobot: (Default)
Penultimate challenge! This one was supplied by [ profile] mxdp, who I hope will forgive it not being all that it could be.

The quoted story is The Nightingale and the Rose. I think I get unconventional-use-of-Wilde points, at least.

2200-words-ish. What is with my G-rated preslash thing?

Far More Than Flowers )
mercyrobot: (Default)
I have not forgotten my challenges! [ profile] storyfan supplied the idea of a chase scene. I questionably deliver.

There's chasing, all right, but it gets a bit ridiculous and may all go on a bit too long (2400 words WTF). Almost totally gen.

This ain't great, but I need to move on.
