Title: Hear Their Clockwork Hearts Work
Wordcount: ~1600
Warnings: non-graphic violence and off-screen minor character death, certainly less blood than canon
Summary: Ragnar finds an interesting treasure while raiding the airship Lindisfarne.
A/N: Dipping my toes into a new fandom, and filling the "au: steampunk" square on my Trope Bingo card while I'm at it! This is a re-working of the Lindisfarne raid with bonus Lagertha and airships, basically. Not tagging it so as not to get anyone's hopes up for kisses/porn, but it is pre-Athelstan/Lagertha/Ragnar. Title from "Robot Ponies" by Laura Barrett, because I have been looking for an excuse to use this line for a steampunk story for ages.
Disclaimer: I do not own Vikings.

Lagertha is the first to jump across the gap. )

Title: The Sun Hasn't Died
Wordcount: ~10,800
Warnings: past character death, mentions of violence and rioting and other consequences of the apocalypse
Summary: You have to figure out how to survive somehow, after the world ends. Elena does it by stealing horses and roaming, at least until she finds the village of Camelot and its residents, especially its librarian.
A/N: Written for the free space on my Trope Bingo card and because Emjayelle prompted an Elena/Mithian apocalypse AU on tumblr. I restrained myself from putting novels worth of backstory and minor character interaction into this, you should be grateful. Title from "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Read it over on the AO3: ... if there's nobody around to appreciate her cleverness, well. Elena always did better on her own anyway.

Title: And the Birthday Dessert Conundrum
Wordcount: ~2,200
Summary: Caroline is not the baker in their duo, but Max deserves something special for her birthday.
A/N: So apparently I write 2 Broke Girls fic now? This is for the "food porn" square on my Trope Bingo card and also for Femslash February (though contrary to both those things and despite a visit to a sex shop, it is actually pre-relationship). Also, fair warning, this may make you hungry.
Disclaimer: I do not own 2 Broke Girls.

A party is not going to happen. )

First of all, thank you, wonderful author! I promise that any and all details/prompts contained below are optional (I get pretty intimidatingly wordy, but that is just because I want you to have lots of options, not because I'm going to be picky), and that I really just enjoy seeing fics about all these various wonderful ladies. Anything that does not hit my dislikes/squicks is bound to make me happy. :)

I may come back and edit this if I realize that I missed something, but otherwise, if you have any questions, the askbox and anon thereon at my tumblr are always on and you can contact my there.

Likes and dislikes, both general and specific, as well as some prompts. )

Thank you again, dear author, for whatever fic you end up being inspired to write!

Title: Here to Hold on To
Wordcount: ~14,800
Warnings: minor character death, hospitals/illness (specifically Erica's epilepsy), mentions of bullying and miserable high school experience (also due to Erica's epilepsy, nothing more explicit than in canon), minor bloodplay towards the end. There's no sex, but Laura is very aware nonetheless of Erica's age.
Summary: A chance meeting in the hospital the morning after Laura kills Peter leaves Laura with a telepathic connection to a teenager she'd never met before--one who, after she finds out about werewolves, wants the bite.
A/N: Written for the "telepathy" square on my Trope Bingo card, and for Femslash February. Title from "City," by Sara Bareilles. Also, who is in the least bit surprised that my longest Teen Wolf fic to date is extremely rarepair femslash?
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Wolf.

Read it here on the AO3.

Title: How Much a Heart Can Hold
Wordcount: ~2,400
Summary: The problem with having two boyfriends is Valentine's Day.
A/N: Written for the "holiday" square on my trope bingo card (you may think from looking at it that I intend to do the top line. If I ever come up with something good for "au: steampunk" that may even be true).
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Mostly, Gwen doesn't care if things aren't perfect. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: The Space Between the Threads
Wordcount: ~1700
Warnings/Enticements: crossdressing (for charity but also implied for pleasure), strong hints of D/s, very unresolved UST
Summary: It would have been nice of Arthur to warn Gwaine that his sister is coming to stay. Especially before he offered his guest room for Gwaine to change in before the charity event they're doing.
A/N: Written for the "crossdressing" square on my Trope Bingo card. This isn't rated because it's the closest you can get to a PWP without actually having any porn involved. The title is from a quote by Lori Howe: "Lace is as much about the space between the threads as it is about the threads themselves."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Oh now. What have we here? )
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title A Statue Strong Enough for Two
Wordcount: ~39,000
Summary: Elena is a street-level superhero--she's never been one of the ones who wanted glory. Now, though, a visit from an old enemy forces her to step up and see what she might have to do with the Sidhe who invaded and were sent away twenty years ago. Luckily, she has fellow superheroes, especially the Huntress, to back her up, and a new girlfriend in her regular life to make things feel more normal. (Though nothing, of course, can ever be normal when you've got a secret identity.)
Warnings: this being a superhero story, there is some violence and minor character death, including one brief scene where a character deliberately injures herself in the course of fighting evil, and another where two characters who are friendly spar and come out with some bruises. None of the above is very explicit, but do be warned that it is present.
A/N: Written for this prompt on the meme. The title is from Ian Axel's "This is the New Year."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Because of the length, I'm not reposting the full text here, so you can find it all on the AO3, right here.

Title: A Lot Like Life
Wordcount: ~2,200
Warnings: slavery, bondage (of a sort), some light breathplay, and the dub-con inherent in the situation even though consent is obtained (and enthusiastic)
Summary: During treaty negotiations, the High Priestesses give Morgana an unorthodox gift, and he is more than he appears at first glance.
A/N: This has been languishing half-finished in my documents folder since ... the slavefic round of Kinkspiration, I think? So I was very glad when my "slavefic" square for Trope Bingo came up. This is set in an ambiguous AU where Uther stopped the Purge after a few years and has been trying to make treaties ever since. Title from Depeche Mode's "Master and Servant" because I could not resist.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I wonder what sort of destiny the High Priestesses think they're trying to avert. )
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: The Future is Ours
Wordcount: ~3,300
Warnings: canon character death (in an alternate universe), references to half-sibling incest
Summary: Morgana wakes, and it's all been a dream.
A/N: I have wanted this fic to exist for a long time (even if by all rights it deserves Big Bang treatment), so I thought I would do it as the last part of my post-finale fics. It isn't a headcanon so much as it is basically a big screw-you to destiny the way the show does it, with bonus pre-OT4 added in.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

No one mourns the death of Morgana Pendragon. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Scrubbing Out the Stains
Wordcount: ~3,500
Warnings: 5x13 spoilers, in case anyone has not yet seen: this is an afterlife fic, thus this fic comes with warnings for major character death and grief It's mostly gen but pairings include past Arthur/Gwen and Merlin/Freya and some Arthur/Merlin if you squint
Summary: Arthur wakes on the isle of Avalon, where he learns from its lady about his past and future.
A/N: The Arthur-POV fic for the four post-canon fics I'm writing (which are not necessarily congruent, for those who may be confused or not wanting to pick up a series in the middle). A lot of it comes from my life for Arthur&Freya in fics. Title is from Regina Spektor's "Open."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

People want to see you, but you must be well first. )

Part One

Part Two )

This story references and quotes from several books, including:

A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens

Hogfather Terry Pratchett

Ballet Shoes Noel Streatfeild

Where the Sidewalk Ends Shel Silverstein

Good Omens Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

How the Grinch Stole Christmas Dr. Seuss

(Other authors referenced include Georgette Heyer and Douglas Adams.)
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: As Long As We Have We
Wordcount: ~17,000
Warning: past minor character death
Summary: Arthur thinks he's going to have to spend Christmas alone--at least until he somehow acquires a whole house full of strays.
A/N: My [ profile] merlin_holidays fic! (If anyone is wondering why the title changed since that posting, let me tell you: when you are looking for quotes to title your fics from always find a second source because sometimes the first one is wrong. This now-corrected snippet is from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.) Written for [ profile] neojas and betaed by the ever-trusty plot-wrangling [ profile] flammablehat.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Part One )

Part Two
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: These Days of Dust
Wordcount: ~1500
Warnings: major character death, 5x13 spoilers: This is a reincarnation fic that deals both with Merlin's grief at Arthur's loss and, due to the nature of it, Merlin's repeated death. Only one is explicit at all (brief violence).
Summary: Merlin waits through lifetimes.
A/N: The second fic in the vaguely connected series I started last night (the others will happen in the new year). Title from Mumford and Sons, "I Will Wait." This is very compressed headcanon from a much longer reincarnation fic I may someday write, because I tend to like reincarnation more than immortality and wanted to work out how that might still comply with the given canon.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

He always comes back. )
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: Heavy is the Head (That Wears the Crown)
Wordcount: ~2300
Warnings: 5x13 spoilers: this fic is set after Arthur's death and deals with Gwen's grief as she keeps going, as well as (to some extent) Merlin's. There is also another character death. Past Arthur/Gwen, implied possible Gwen/Leon Read, as always, with your own self-care in mind.
Summary: Gwen has to be Queen. There's no time to mourn.
A/N: This is the first of four fics that I'm intending to write post-finale. There will be one for each of the OT4, but they won't necessarily all be congruent or share the same headcanons--just my way of dealing with things and assimilating the new canon. As is somehow generally true of my canon-era fic, none of them will be terribly happy.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

It isn't like the stories. )
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: Pink and Black and Blue (for You)
Wordcount: ~1600
Warnings: This fic is about negotiating a relationship of which BDSM is a part, and includes D/s, flogging, rough sex, some references to bondage, and one brief scene where Morgana goes farther than she means to (with Gwen's understanding and no objection, and with apologies afterwards).
Summary: Gwen and Morgana slowly negotiate themselves towards something they both want.
A/N: Written because of 5x06 and for the Gluttonous Pornficlet Reunion a few weeks ago. The title is from "Bruises," by Chairlift.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I'll start you off easy. )

Due to a death in the family, things may be deserted around here for a while. Since I tend to write when upset there may still be fic, but I will be even worse than usual at responding to PMs/questions/the entries of those on my f-list (though do remember that you don't have to wait for permission on podfics/other fanworks, if that is what you would be PMing about, any and all are welcome). I will do my best to keep all commitments I've made at this point.

Thank you.
