Title: Singing in the Light, Laughing in the Dark

Author: marcicat
Wordcount: 50,085
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.

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. )

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. )
I really wanted this to be a 10,000 word fic. Somehow, I thought that would make up for the fact that I've been writing it for three months.

Well, it's not 10,000 words. It's also not a fluffy love story, which it was totally supposed to be. There was, I swear, a whole plan for this fic. Maybe I can write that one next?

Anyway, we're going to see the movie this afternoon, so it's now or never for this one.* Here goes nothing.

Um Tubarão, Saltando

Dom said disappear, he was disappearing. Sao Paulo was Dominic's; the rest of them would scatter, mostly further south or overseas (depending on whether they had any IDs that could get them on a plane). No one had said anything about being bored.

Fandoms included in the party:
Fast and Furious
Deception (the fake movie shown in the movie ‘The Holiday’)
X-Men (a few Gen X kids)
I Am Number Four (movie version)
Burn Notice

(Note: Um, Tubarão, Saltando is the Portuguese equivalent, or as close as I can figure it, to "One Shark, Jumping.")

(*I wrote the last section of this story in the car, on the way to the theater. Totally done before the viewing, just took me a few hours afterwards to get to the posting.)
Title: Intervention (5-7-5, like a haiku)

Fandoms: White Collar, Psych, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Leverage, X-Men
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 12,400

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: Expectation, Perception, Reaction

Author: marcicat
Rating: PG (for ninjas and threats; no actual violence occurs)

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.


Expectation, Perception, Reaction )
This is yet another fic inspired by recent movie viewing -- this time X-Men 3. It doesn't really have anything to do with the movie, except that it takes place at the school. It blatantly disregards most movieverse canon and almost 100% of comic book canon as well (although with X-Men, who can really tell?) In the grand tradition of X-Men, I have cheerfully rearranged who is currently alive and who isn't. In this story, Charles Xavier is dead (or at least believed to be), and Scott Summers is alive.

A Year in Westchester )

And then a little extra scene. This kid really is in the movie, except we never find out what his power is. He was short and kind of fuzzy looking, and he kind of lumbers out of sight around a corner in one of the hallway scenes.
