Title: Making Headlines
Fandom: Singin' in the Rain
Characters: Cosmo Brown/Don Lockwood/Kathy Selden
Recipient: [ profile] kinky_kneazle for Yuletide 2013
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2750
Summary: They made headlines in a Variety of ways.
Notes: The Jazz Singer premiered on October 6, 1927. If we use this date as an anchor point, it is fairly easy to extrapolate a timeline for Singin' in the Rain: The Royal Rascal premiered just before The Jazz Singer came out, probably mid-September 1927, and filming for The Dueling Cavalier begins mid-October. Therefore, the "March 23rd/24th" exchange just prior to the song "Good Mornin'" is clearly 1928, and Don and Kathy (and Cosmo) have been together for about four months. The premiere of The Dancing Cavalier is presumably a few months later - May or June 1928.

Many thanks to B for the beta work!

Title: The Triumph of Time (We Are Everywhere For Your Convenience Remix)
Fandom: Star Trek: TNG
Characters: Beverly Crusher, Jean-Luc Picard, Nyota Uhura
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~4500
Summary: She always belonged to someone else.
Original Story: The Triumph of Time by [ profile] caitn
Notes: This story is, of course, pure, unabashed speculation, and draws heavily on ideas from some Trek Novels, while blithely ignoring others, when the information didn't fit or was too contradictory. Memory Alpha and Memory Beta were invalueable in the writing of this story. The funky remix subtitle is a nod to the Psi Corps of Babylon 5's universe. Because you just know that Chekov has an alternate universe doppelganger who is a pain in the ass psychic (and psychotic) intel chief.

Title: What Dreams May Come (The BWV 140 Remix)
Fandom: Harry Potter/Fairy Tales
Characters: Snape, Hermione, Harry, Draco
Rating: T
Word Count: ~2000
Summary: Sleep is a luxury that you don't miss until it's gone.
Original Work: The Death of Each Day's Life by [ profile] sophia_sol
Notes: The title is, of course, from Hamlet's famous speech in Act III, Scn. 1. The funky remix subtitle is better known as Bach's Wachet auf, or, Sleepers Wake.
The idea for this whole thing came from reading through [personal profile] sophia_sol's journal and seeing that a) she, like me, started this whole fandom thing in the SS/HG corner of Harry Potter fandom and b) she had some very interesting ideas about fairy tales in the Harry Potter universe.

Title: No Choice At All
Author: [personal profile] velvetmouse
Recipient: [ profile] valoscope
Characters: McCoy/Chapel, Kirk, Spock, Uhura and Joanna McCoy
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2400
Prompt: Chapel or McCoy performs some kind of act of self-sacrifice for the other. How does s/he respond? Happy endings, whether suggested or blatant, would be nice. Fic, any rating.
Summary: For Christine, it's a no-brain decision. For McCoy, it's incomprehensible.
Notes: I took a few liberties with the "self-sacrifice" thing, so I hope you still enjoy this.
huge thanks to jules for helping me work out the medical details, and to seren for her usual awesome betaing. Any remaining mistakes are my own, despite their best efforts...

Title: I Am Become Death
Author: [personal profile] velvetmouse
Fandom: Highlander
Character(s): Methos, Methos, a little bit of Alexa, but mostly Methos
Prompt: a) to exist, b) relationships
Rating: PG
Warnings: Spoilers for the Methos-centric bits of the Timeless/Deliverance/Methuselah's Gift/Through a Glass, Darkly arc in Season 4. But it should make sense without having seen them.
Word Count: 2834
Summary: After five thousand years of death, it takes a dying woman to remind him of life.
Author's Notes: Alex, I tried to incorporate both of your prompts while still keeping it gen-fic! I was intending to make this a light, snappy-dialogue, snarky Methos piece, but the old man had other ideas. He climbed into my head for a couple weeks, got all introspective on me, and this is what came out.

The title is, of course, a supposed quote from J. Robert Oppenheimer, upon seeing the first nuclear bomb tested. Oppenheimer himself was thinking of the Sanskrit Hindu epic Bhagavad Gita; most scholars believe that the translation should be "Time" rather than "Death". Quite frankly, either is appropriate for Methos.

Many thanks to my beta, E.

Title: From Darkness, Light
Author/Artist: [personal profile] velvetmouse
Gift For: [ profile] sullensiren in the 2009 [ profile] weasley_fest
Rating: PG-13 for swearing, potential pre-slash and growing up too fast
Featured Character or Pairing(s): Bill/Remus friendship (pre-slash if you squint), Ginny
Summary: Hiding something from a Curse-Breaker is never a good idea. Hiding something from a Curse-Breaker when it involves a cursed object is just plain dumb. Hiding something from a Curse-Breaker when it involves a cursed object AND his own sister is a really, really bad idea. This is the story of what might have been when Bill Weasley learned what happened to his sister in her first year at Hogwarts.
Warnings: Progressively more AU of PoA; swearing (Bill's language goes to sh*t when he gets angry); pre-slash if you want to read it that way
Word Count: 10,212
Disclaimer: Not mine. Just playing with them, I'll put them back when I'm done. Promise.
