For [livejournal.com profile] aisforinterval, who has literally waited TWO LONG YEARS for this thing. (Clearly, 2015 is the year of posting everything-that-is-almost-finished-but-not-quite that lives in my fic folders.) I doubt any gift is worth a wait that long, but I hope you enjoy this at least in some small part!

MONSTERS
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lacidiana
Fandom: Heroes
Pairing: Sylar/Nathan
Genre: Drama/Psych
Words: 2,072
Rating: R; non-consensual sexual content (non-graphic), violence
Spoilers/Notes: Diverging A/U from general S4 events.

Summary: He's not dead, but he'd might as well be.

A/N: This is a fic from early 2010 that I'm dragging out of the archives; I originally planned for it to be longer, but I've eventually accepted it's not going any further and it feels pretty complete as is. Anyway, with so many other WIPs on my plate and the show ended, I figured I'd post this as one last Heroes hurrah!

SMOKE AND MIRRORS
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lacidiana
Fandom: Heroes
Characters: Nathan, Sylar, Peter
Pairing(s): slight Sylar/Lydia
Genre: Gen/Drama
Words: 3,434
Rating: R; violence, language, non-graphic sex
Spoilers: up to 4x06: Tabula Rasa

Summary: None of him fits together.

A/N: It was only when I was at the end of this thing that I realized I'd already written the Supernatural version of the exact same fic. FML. Anyway, rushed to finish this by Monday night since it's a quasi-tag to 4x06, and I guess I beat PST but not EST so much. Oh well. :( Either way, fic assumes a bit of A/Uing off the end of 4x06.

Nathan Petrelli can't shake the feeling that he's walking through a dream. )

This is the most awesome meme ever, srsly. Anyway, started this as a writing exercise since I wanted to do this thing again and [livejournal.com profile] burningvigor suggested I do it for our Heroes/Supernatural post-apocalyptic future that pretty much only exists in our heads. I normally wouldn't post something like this, since it's pretty much just based on indulgent ramblings and a fic that never actually happened, but I remember that a few people were interested in reading said crossover, and since we never delivered on that... I figured I'd post these drabbles publicly instead of keeping their quasi-embarrassing contents to myself. And since it's more satisfying to post non-privately even if no one reads it. \o/ I'M PROUD OF MY CRACK KIND OF okay not really.

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.


WARNING(S): Lots of Nathan/Peter (#s 1, 4, 7, 8), some Dean/Claire, and generally weird and overly dramatic since hey, it's an AU crossover.

STITCHES
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lacidiana
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] loreamara, [livejournal.com profile] famira
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: None
Genre: Drama/Suspense
Words: 3,679
Rating: R; some strong language & violence
Spoilers: up to the end of season 3

Summary: Time causes decay and desperation for even the oldest soul. Nothing stays human after too long; demons and monsters know this, but then, sometimes, they remember.

A/N: This fic is based on an idea by [livejournal.com profile] famira. [livejournal.com profile] loreamara provided extensive input. Much love to both of them. <3

The demon had only been sitting there for a few minutes, but in a human's body, it felt like hours. )

Ttly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] burningvigor, who did a matching set from Peter's POV. <3 (Also planning to do a Sam & Dean set from Dean's POV once Court is ready to do a SAMMEH one. :D!)

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.


NOTE: Kinda cheated and went back through and edited these so they weren't so bad. Generally, though, I stopped writing when the song ended, unless I had to finish a line. (Except for 9. Totally cheated on 9. D:) Also got an INORDINATE amount of OVERLY EMO/MELODRAMATIC songs so yeah, warning on that, and apologies for suck, since um, these were timed, more-or-less, and not meant to be really formal. D8

WARNING(S): 7 is one-sided gay-ish, but the rest are platonic/up to interpretation. Also, again, a lot of these are REALLY MELODRAMATIC and REALLY... not so good. XD;

Drabble Meme: Nathan & Peter (Nathan POV), Heroes )

Funny story: I screwed up my numbering so much that I did two extra ones, so I just pulled out two that were personal-RP-based/super-short in the end. AHA. XD;;; Also, finally going to do those [livejournal.com profile] damned posts I owe everyone. WOOO.
