Title: The Jaws Job
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Relationships: Team Leverage & Team Leverage
On the plane back home, Sophie was napping on Nate’s shoulder, who was napping on her head. Eliot was watching a film with Hardison and probably on the verge of falling asleep on him as well. And Parker, safe from Nate’s closed eyes, smoothed down the paper she had stolen from his pocket during the prep.
“Bare necessities to wrap the con:
- Parker’s loot;
- Sophie’s room at the palace;
- VERY IMPORTANT stolen letters and documents;
- Eliot’s elderly friends;
- Hardison’s access to internet;
- trust this is just crazy enough to work;
- doesn’t matter.
Note: never go on a trip when the team is emotionally compromised."
A/N: Written for TrespassersWill as part of the Leverage Secret Santa exchange.
Timeline: season 4; between The Potato Job and The Boiler Room Job.
Rather than a fully endorsed con, this is best read as a relationship- and interaction-oriented patchwork. If the original prompts seem worryingly blown out of recognisable proportions, it's because they are. This is 20k of unapologetic fluff and playing with the characters.
Thanks to Gus for the help and re-reading.
Title: That's the day I knew you were my pet
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Relationships: Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Characters: River Song, Eleventh Doctor
The Doctor needs to work on his bedside manners. But probably not as much as River.
A/N: I was trying to order my fics when I stumbled upon this thing. It's very fluffy and domestic and silly and I never write that. So why not publish it. Some could enjoy it.
Warning: it's very fluffy.
Title from Sea of Love by Phil Phillips
For zimamythos, River and the Doctor as space pirates.
I hope you weren't waiting for Twelve; Eleven sort of happened there. I have a very precise headcanon for River and Eleven as Space Pirates as you can see; the Doctor is an engineer-type, River a cyborg-type. That makes sense.
If you are wondering, things are going supernova.
During the break I:
- Went to see (very late) The Hobbit and it turned out to be (accidentally) the best comedy of the year.
- Went through the annual family meetings. Went through being the correct term. I love my family, they are adorable, but I hate the way they handle certain family issues.
- Saw again and spent some time with very dear friends who were back for the holidays.
- Wrote again. I think I broke my drawing for good.
- Enjoyed the Who Christmas Special even if I am convinced the ending was a wasted opportunity. And I do not mean it as Clara leaving. I just wanted the last scene not to be a dream, but to be the future departure of Clara, already set in stone (except not because it's Who and everything can be retconned)
- Started to flirt again with that old friend of mine, sleep troubles, and really hope it does not evolve.
- Am fine otherwise.
And I will say just one thing about Charlie Hebdo and the attacks; it broke my heart, because of the lives lost and the insanity and the specific targetting, and after, it broke my heart through many people and opinions, to the point where I simply do not wish to discuss it on the web. My thoughts went and still go to all the victims first, direct and indirect, regardless of their religion and opinions. This was a dreadful waste of lives.
Terrorism is not something I could imagine happening in France. It did. What I could imagine was some of the reactions. The solidarity and the answer from all communities were beautiful to witness. I hope we all can simply live up to what was hopeful in the middle of this waste and become more tolerant on any front, more willing to protect each other and freedom of speech, less selfish and silent and more open-minded and nuanced.
