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: Intervention (5-7-5, like a haiku)
Author: marcicat

Fandoms: White Collar, Psych, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Leverage, X-Men
Rating: PG-13

Summary: Barrett’s death sends shockwaves through the shadowy corners of society. Michael’s friends recruit some help and stage an intervention.

Author’s Note: This story started out with three ideas. First, Burn Notice has been really frustrating this season. Second, I’m really sick of the music box storyline on White Collar. And third, I watched one episode of Covert Affairs and was convinced that the most compelling plot wasn’t the one on screen. But since I didn’t have the time or inclination to write a bunch of different fics before NaNoWriMo, I just combined them all into one. The other fandoms are just there for the free food.

Title: All I Want For Christmas Is An Alibi

Shoutouts To: Burn Notice, White Collar, Psych, Leverage, Supernatural

Summary: If I knew what was happening, it would be a Christmas miracle. (Basically, I thought of little things for different fandoms I wanted to write, and then mushed them all together into one story.)

He'd agreed to Shawn's invitation on an impulse after one too many jewelry commercials made him willing to be anywhere but in the same city as his ex-wife come Christmas day, and all Shawn had said was "pack your flip-flops and your badge." The tickets said Arizona, but he was betting it was just to switch planes. "And what are you reading?"

"It's a novelization of the Christmas spirit," Shawn said, still looking at the book, though it was hard to tell if he was actually reading. "I stole it from Gus' desk."

Note: This is the de-aging fic I kept expecting someone else to write so I wouldn't have to. The title is somewhat ironic, since it absolutely failed to exceed expectations in any way. (More like the opposite.) Also, it was almost titled "you get all your coffee for free," but the lack of coffee made that one less plausible.

This story is an odd amalgamation of Psych and the X-universe. I just can't stand the thought of all those worlds on their own -- I don't want them to be lonely! Which is why crossovers rule, and I can't seem to stick to single-fandom stories.

Author's Note: I wanted to write something where the characters could use the conveniences of modern technology. And I've always meant to write a Psych fic. This is really more of a "Psych plus some random characters from the X-Men" fic. Before I started writing, I did some cursory research on the X-universe, which - wow - is really weird. Since many (most) of the X-characters have died/been brought back to life, been de-powered/re-powered, been aged/de-aged/cloned/merged/spent time in alternate dimensions, and been on various sides in various conflicts, I'm following this basic rule: The X-Universe Has No Canon (aka anything goes). For the purposes of this story, it may be helpful to assume that Prof. X is currently not around, and Scott is at least nominally in charge of the school.
