I need to talk about lots of things at the moment; Eurovision, running, friends visiting. I've been busy in work too.

However, what I've been spending every other free minute doing is bashing out a multi-part series of MCU fanfic. I know. I know. But... I'm prouder of it than anything else I've ever written. I like to check my kudos-per-click percentage on Ao3, and it's about about 24% at the moment. Normally I lurk around the 10% rate. Even 'Kudos', which did really well, was about 11%. I'm not posting it here because the HTML, for me, is really complicated.

So, as part of the overall series of The Court Of Public Opinion, I present:

Title: Specialist
Fandoms: MCU, Daredevil, Jessica Jones
Summary: Trish Walker starts a conversation. J Jonah Jameson fails to end it. Frank Castle doesn’t really care. Luke Cage is an excellent bartender. Foggy Nelson is the vigilante lawyer of choice.

"I'm going to have to talk about it on the show, you know."

Jessica looked up from her drink and raised an eyebrow. "You talk about something on the show every day, Trish. That's the title."


Title: Family Ties
Fandoms: MCU, Daredevil
Summary: Steve Rogers is better at social media than you would think. Claire Temple makes poor drink choices. Sam Wilson has strong opinions on geography. Laura Barton is tired. Natasha Romanov is not a romantic heroine. Foggy Nelson is still the vigilante lawyer of choice.

Thank you for your enquiry for Hogarth, Chao, Benowitz and Nelson. Due to high workloads, Mr Nelson is unable to respond to public emails soliciting his attention. Your enquiry will be passed on to our highly-qualified pool of lawyers...

It's been an odd two weeks, basically.

Oh yeah - in the second one, there's an entire well-crafted cocktail menu. There are puns and everything. I am the greatest or I have finally gone too far. One or the other.

I have had a godawful day so I have come home, finished this off, and decided to post it. This is my attempt to try and negotiate my desire to write completely canonical fic but at the same time to acknowledge that I am a die-hard Clint/Natasha shipper and that I love the Hawkeye comics. And I love that Tony is the only Avenger you ever see in his apartment. As such...

Also: this is for [livejournal.com profile] stupidore, who accidentally cameo-ed in this before I'd realised. Sorry Katie.

Title:The License
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hathy_col
Rating: Teen and up (some swearing)
Disclaimer:I own nothing.
Summary:"Slow down there a second. One of the other things I've been doing is monitoring internet chat about all of the Avengers, even trying to see what's being passed around the dark web. A group in the last couple of days has been talking about a marriage license for you, so if that exists..." Stark looked, for him, unaccountably nervous. "You have a nice life out there, Barton, and I don't want to be the one that bursts that little dream, but it might be time to move them."

Clint stayed still for a moment. "A marriage license?" he said cautiously. "That's all?"

So I have seen Age of Ultron! And I have seen all of Daredevil! And I have lots of complicated feelings on them both, mostly focussed around Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov and Wilson Fisk NOT LIKE THAT and not in that order. So I ignored all of that and wrote this.

Title: Coda
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hathy_col
Summary: Not all of the MCU were involved in fighting Ultron. Doesn't mean they weren't paying attention. (or: five post credit scenes we will never see. probably.)

HEY KIDS I ACTUALLY WROTE SOMETHING. I'm also in the process of finally, finally uploaded stuff to Archive of Our Own, because I am nothing if not three years behind the curve. Here's a link and everything.

I love Darcy like pie. Did I mention this?

Title: Afternoon Drinks
Fandom: Thor/MCU/AoS
Summary: Fitz and Simmons really don't know why Coulson picked them for this mission. It's not like they really know Ian Boothby...
Notes: First fic in MCU, first on AO3. HOW EXCITING. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] not_vacillating for the beta.

The atmosphere in the laboratory on the Bus had grown tense... )

Author: [livejournal.com profile] hathy_col
Rating: PG
Prompt: “Occupying Dominion forces, meet the unconquerable Lwaxana Troi. P.S. She’s got family.”
Summary: Being the leader of a resistance cell was no fun at all, particularly when it was combined with childcare.
Author’s Notes: This is un-betaed due to time constraints, so any mistakes are my own. Thank you to the prompter (promptee?), I really enjoyed getting to write this.

Only the words stood out )

I wrote more fic. I haven't been this prolific since I was, er, fifteen. It is less real fic, and more 'so you are in work for an hour by yourself every night and there is no one to directly observe you'. I could catch up on my paperwork, but that would make too much sense, clearly.

It is also very un-betaed, and should be treated as just a bit of fun.

Title: Library Card
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Doctor Who belongs to the BBC. This is strictly non-profit. Alas.
Summary: Shoreditch Library has a very strict membership policy. Spoilers for Vampires in Venice.

'We are an institution, you know.' )

Argh, god, work remains awful and wants me to HTML code. Rather than going 'well, I can work the basics of that' I have gone Luddite, am denying all knowledge, and playing very stupid when being taught it. Random duties are being thrown on me, which is no fair and a bit bewildering, especially as I was suffering from Hung Parliament Malaise and now have a mild case of Badly Thought Out Coalition Cabinet Laryngitus. (Theresa May as Equalities Minister?! Was Chris Grayling busy or something? YOU ARE IN A COALITION WITH THE FUCKING LIBERAL DEMOCRATS YOU COULD HAVE CHOSEN ANYONE ELSE.)

Instead I bring forth fic, posting on Amnesty Wednesday due to missing my original posting date.

Title: That Woman
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hathy_col
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Pairing/characters: Kira Nerys, Ezri Dax
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Star Trek belongs to Paramount Pictures, and I am making no money from this venture.
Prompt: 2953. Seeing/hearing about her Mirror universe counterpart's sexual tendencies forces Kira to acknowledge parts of herself she never really had time to think about during the Occupation and has tried to avoid since then.
Summary: "You looked, Kira, even when you were fighting and eating and keeping warm." Set beween The Emperor's New Cloak and Chimera.

Author's Notes: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] loneraven for beta-ing and being her usual fabulous self; I apologise to the promptee for this running a few days late.

Author: [profile] hathy_col
Fandom: Discworld
Pairing/characters: Carrot, Vimes, OC pairing.
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Discworld belongs to Sir Terry of Pratchett and I’m not making a penny from this minor work.
Prompt: Discworld, Captain Carrot, Dwarf-born Carrot doesn't understand why being attracted to other men is any different from being attracted to women, since in dwarf society demonstrations of gender are repressed completely and just making sure you can breed with your lover takes a bit of skill. It falls to Vimes to explain that Ankh-Morpork works a bit differently.
Summary: Vimes learns something about dwarfs. Carrot doesn’t really learn anything helpful about humans. This is par for the course, really.

Because I don't need to finish that essay, obviously.

I had this vague intention, right, to get this buggar onto paper after the episode had aired. It's half-written on my computer. There's an amusing section with Ianto and everything. I might finish it one day.

However, Iona's birthday was yesterday and I wrote her this. Actually, lots of people wrote things: check out [livejournal.com profile] grimandancient for more things of awesome. But this is for Iona, who is made of awesome, or something like that.

See, this remix was a little tricky for me. I foolishly slapped down LOTR as my third fandom, because I figured if I did end up with that, I could knock out a story about Eowyn, or Elves, or even Gondor or Rohan, and it would be okay.

Yeah, I didn't take into account that I would be assigned not only a Pervy Hobbit Fancier but a Pervy Hobbit Fancier Who Also Slashes The Little Dudes. I flailed a bit, because I like the Hobbits, I do, but I really dislike Frodo, Sam is too perfect as a character to form any sort of story about (because? He is my Dad) and Merry and Pippin are good but tricky to get right because of the character progression involved in them all. (No one ever writes about Bilbo, and will anyone ever consider poor old Fatty Bolger? I do like the Hobbits, you know, and I love reading gen stories about them...) And I can never ever ever slash them.

I spent two weeks going "OMG HOBBIT SLASH I AM SO FUCKED" to [livejournal.com profile] spockette, who understood my pain, and [livejournal.com profile] stupidore, who didn't quite so much. I didn't at any point mention my author name, but oh, the stress.

So, I read through her stuff, and then I found this absolutely beautiful drabble: Merry's Simple Courage by [livejournal.com profile] mordelhin. I loved it, because Merry is sort of quietly my favourite Hobbit (it's the Eowyn connection, or something) and because I loved the last line.

So, I remixed. I forgot to do so until the night before it was due in, so I ended up getting [livejournal.com profile] zeta_of_s to beta-read, because I had no idea where I could get a LOTR fan at short notice, so it was only really checked for spelling and grammar rather than fandom inacuracies, but the nature of the story meant I didn't have to entirely accurate. I sort of lost patience with a lot of the fandom and my friends who are also LOTR fangirls I didn't know if I could get hold of them with such short notice. And then I sent it off, ON TIME AND EVERYTHING.

And that is the story of Baby's First Remix. Enjoyed it, but not putting LOTR down as a fanom because I'm not risking the bloody Hobbits again. I had vaguely been hoping for Firefly, actually, just for the challenge, but never mind. We'll see what next year brings.

And, erm, yes. This is my story.

Title: A Brandybuck's Bravery (Merry's Simple Courage Remix)

Summary: Young Merina Took is something of an unnatural Hobbit – she wants to hear stories about a Brandybuck.

Rating: G

Spoilers: ROTK, for the three people who haven't seen the film or read the book.

His tale wasn't exactly a favourite amongst the Hobbits who lived away from the Brandywine. )

In other news, I have repaired my social life with the aim of that old-fashioned beast, the telephone (spent about an hour howling with laughter with Jess about people who used to go to school with us) and now have something to do every single night until I go back to university. Simon is coming around to tonight (fear, fear, fear - Mum makes noises about old dance vidos and the worst part is I KNOW SHE'S NOT JOKING), going to the Buck tomorrow night (OLD SCHOOL) and it's all just busy busy...

Yay! I did the Fic Thing.

Title: Doing Domestic

Author: Hathor ([livejournal.com profile] hathy_col)

Fandom: Doctor Who

Summary: Rose wants to know about the Doctor's family. The Doctor really doesn't want her to know.

Notes: Thanks be to [livejournal.com profile] loneraven for editing the thing that's been lying around on my harddrive since July 2005. And for the title. Because I suck like that. If I've got any aspects of the old skool canon wrong, please tell me. I hope I haven't, for I am research girl.

It all began not long after they’d defeated the Slitheen. The Doctor didn’t do domestic and Rose wanted to know why. She assumed it was a reasonable request. )

I have a long post of GLEE and JOY to write, but I'm saving that.

You see, today is the birthday of the wonderful and amazing [livejournal.com profile] loneraven.

And I wrote her fic.

It is not very good, written as it was in thirty minutes in Cambridge and polished on the train and typed up here, but it is fic and I think my first at uni. It is very, very silly. First shot at Girl!Doctor, so hoping for the best here. Also I suck at titles and bad puns but we knew that already.

Title: Thespianism
Author: Hathor
Rating: PG for almost swearing.

It had seemed like a terribly good idea to the Doctor, at the time. )

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] calapine, who wanted Harriet Jones as Prime Minister and the Brigadier. I hope that I provided. Also, this is written on my laptop. Possibly I am too proud of this fact.

James Naylor is entirely fictitious – there’s a joke about the Civil Service I could make here and am choosing not to – but he did for narrative purposes. For those who recognise the name, well done – evidently you did A-Level history too.

Apologies for the late posting. Any mistakes are entirely my own.

Harriet Jones – still of Flydale North... )
