So many movies to watch in May! (Okay, two so far, but I've seen both of them twice, which is like four!) I wasn't sure what I'd want to write about, so I planned to do supershorts for each movie -- sort of a 'this is what I wanted to see on screen' sort of thing. As usual, I'm not really sure how the plan manifested in the finished result.

Characters: Felicity Smoak, Thea Queen

Warnings: mentions of drug use and addiction

Summary: Not all heroics take place on the front line. (Alternately, maybe SHIELD should maybe just stay closed on Mondays.)

Author’s Note: Includes a few characters from Iron Man: Armored Adventures (the official high school AU).

Summary: A 500-piece jigsaw puzzle wouldn’t be much of a challenge for this group — unless the pieces were hidden.

Author's Note: NaNoWriMo novel Christmas follow-up fic!

Rating: R (for thematic content)

Fandoms: Bourne movies (including Bourne Legacy), I Am Number Four (movie!verse), Marvel!verse (including Spiderman & the Avengers, mentions of F4 & X-teams), brief cameo appearance by characters from my former nano novels (hi Sabri and PJ!)

Author's Note: Basically, I'm incapable of writing anything without everything taking place in the same universe -- the one where everyone is neighbors and everything turns out okay.

Title: The End Is The Beginning
(an epilogue that's also a prologue)

Author: marcicat
Word count: 1500
Rating: PG-13 (language, attempted/mentioned gun violence)

Fandom: the Bourne movies, but diverging rapidly into the universal crossover that makes up pretty much all of my other writing

Author's Note:  In the movie The Bourne Ultimatum, Nikki Parsons helps Jason Bourne, tanking her own career/old life in the process.  (We see him send her off on her own with the truly crap advice "it gets easier.") James was introduced in Um Tubarao, Saltando, and showed up again in this is how the world begins. (This story assumes the Northville community exists, sans solar flare.)


The End Is The Beginning )
I received a lovely comment on this is how the world begins while I was on my work-cation last week, requesting a list of which characters matched up to which fandoms. (I felt a little overwhelmed when I looked at the list, but I've given it a go!)

Also, my apologies to anyone who tried to read the story on AO3 when it was first posted; the formatting was all wonky. It should be fixed now!

Honestly, I thought it would be easier than this. )
Title: Five Times Flash (Thompson) Met The Avengers
Author: marcicat

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5900

Author’s Note: Inspired by The Amazing Spiderman (movie) and, of course, the Avengers (movie), though I couldn’t resist adding in the ‘Phil Coulson as Peter Parker’s high school principal’ concept from the 2012 Spiderman animated series.


Getting called to the front office was generally considered a Bad Thing. He couldn’t even think of anything he’d been caught at recently, which might mean it was nothing. (It was hardly ever nothing.) )
Title: probably just a misunderstanding
Author: marcicat

Wordcount: 2800
Rating: L for language

Summary: Bad guys kidnapped a dark-haired angry sniper and a friendly blond soldier.  They probably should have checked IDs more carefully.

Author's Note: Crossover between The Losers and Marvel's Avengers. Inspired by this post from when I watched The Losers movie.

“But now I really want to read a story where Bucky Barnes from ‘Captain America’ runs into Jensen from ‘The Losers,’ and they’re both like, “wow, you seem kind of familiar” (you know, in a ‘one’s a sniper with a troubled past, one’s a man who wears unlikely outfits and looks like Chris Evans; together they fight crime’ sort of way).”

That’s not really what ended up happening, but who expects werewolves?

*****

Well, that was totally weird.  That was weird, right?  That's not, like, a normal thing during kidnappings for you? )
Title: a walk in the park
Author: marcicat

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 9250

Summary: First there is jogging, then explosions, then everyone sort of wonders what's happening. Eventually, Pepper gets it all sorted.

Author’s Note: Loosely follows look to the sky for love, warn the neighbors, and howling down the moon. Bucky’s a telepathic werewolf, because that is a seriously handy plot device. Also, the Avengers are awesome, and I like fics with kids in them.

She should have guessed, really, that something would go wrong. There was probably a flowchart about these things hanging somewhere in the SHIELD building. )

From May/June 2011

Title: Send Somebody
Author: marcicat

Word Count: 5400
Rating: PG-13

Note: This story takes place in an alternate version of season 6, and loosely follows Ex-Spooks, Guns, and Money (send them all, there’s a party in Miami). It assumes Sam came back from hell right away, with soul firmly in place. Cas made a more triumphant return to heaven and is the de facto leader of the angels; Raphael and Crowley are still around, but without the power base they have in the show.

Instead of a pitched battle between Castiel and Raphael for the souls of Purgatory, there’s a much more fragmented scramble for the souls of Earth, including not just angels and demons, but also the pagan gods and goddesses — who decided that if God wasn’t going to show up for his own apocalypse, he was unlikely to quibble over a few souls.

(Also, Sam has a kitten.)

More Notes: Profound Bonds: Dean/Cas, Sam/Gabriel, and I’m certainly partial to the Michael/Jesse/Fiona for maximum adorableness, but if we’re talking about sex, there isn’t any in this story.

From June 2011

Title: Pistols at Dawn, Postcards at Sunset
Author: marcicat

Word Count: 2300
Rating: PG-13

Note: After the final scene with Moira, I was left with two options: 1) Charles Xavier was an asshole; or 2) this was some sort of convoluted (though somewhat clever) plan devised by 20-somethings who (let’s be fair) didn’t have a lot of time to map out contingencies. I liked number 2 better.

Continuity Note: What continuity? If Marvel can hit the randomizer button, so can fans. This was inspired by X-Men: First Class, but brazenly adheres to no canon universe, not that you can really tell with Marvel anyway.

I hope you’re keeping these, because I want there to be a written record of my objections. This is the most ridiculous plan you’ve ever had. )

Title: Sandstorm
Author: marcicat

Fandom: Children of Dune (2003 tv series)
Cuddlers: Farad’n, Leto, Ghanima

Word Count: 800
Author’s Note: The first title for this was ‘random cuddle!fic #1.’

Bad timing, he thought, but of course the Atreides did nothing by accident )
From October 2011

Title: I Was Not Expecting This
Author: marcicat

Fandom: Avengers movie!verse
Cuddlers: Tony, Pepper, cat!Steve, robot-dog!Iron Man
Word Count: 900

Note: StarAndrea and I were talking about the prevalence of ‘fic where someone is turned into a kitten’ the other day, and I said, “Why isn’t there more Avengers kitten!fic? Captain America would be totes adorable as a kitten.” And lo, there was writing.

Before you say anything, I’m reminding you that this was all your idea )
From December 2011

Title ~ Look to the sky for love (look to the stars for light)
Author ~ marcicat

Fandom ~ Avengers movie!verse (sort of)
Word Count ~ 3000

This is a story about Darcy Lewis and Bucky Barnes, because they are both clearly awesome, and yet are unlikely to show up in the Avengers movie. Really, I figure it's a good thing I'm not in charge of the movie, or else it would be all hoodies and accidentally getting transformed into kittens, and the whole "summer blockbuster" thing would be more like a summer block party with occasional superhero cameos.

Also, this story and canon are like ships that pass in the night -- they might be in the same ocean, but that's about it.

She knew who he was, of course. Everyone knew that. )
From January 2012

Title: Warn the neighbors
Author: marcicat

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3100

Summary: The Avengers are pretty sure they’re about to be fighting Loki, and there is considerable debate about proper superhero etiquette.

(Note: Mostly movie!verse, but heavily influenced by the animated ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.’ Also, I’m sure I’ve read the ‘indoor voice’ thing in someone else’s (surely awesome) fic, but it’s got to be one of those jokes that never really loses its funny, right?)

So, that's the situation here, I wouldn't even have mentioned it, really, except there was the chance you'd spontaneously decide to come back early, or, well — Steve thought you might be watching the news. )
From Feb/March 2012:

Title: Howling down the moon (aka dinner and a movie)
Author: marcicat

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4450

Note: Inspired by the ‘Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia’ challenge, though it doesn’t really fit the requirements. Loosely follows ‘Look to the sky for love,’ set in an Avengers movie-type universe that includes Bucky Barnes, plus the irresistible "extra" Avengers from Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

There was surprisingly little downtime as a member of the Avengers Initiative )
