Title: Home and Abroad
Fandom: Foyle's War
Genre: Gen/Romance
Rating & Warnings: PG (ableism, homophobia, alcohol)
Words: 1056
Disclaimer: I don't own Foyle's War.
Summary: Fifty moments in the lives of the Foyle Family.
Author's Notes: I've been rewatching Foyle's War lately, and I've gotten that old familiar writing itch. So, to practice before I embark on a larger-scale project, I wrote these instead. I'm defining the Foyle Family as Foyle (naturally), Sam, Paul, Andrew, and Brookie. There's also a definite bent toward Sam/Paul, as it's become one of my ships for the series and I'm planning on writing more of it later. So yup!

Summary: Why Kira had invited the newly joined Ezri Dax to lunch so soon after Jadzia's death is beyond her.
Author's Notes: Here it is--my entry for Star Trek Friendshipfest 2015! I was assigned persiflet, who likes explorations of cultural differences. I tried to oblige, but this thing kind of wanted to go in its own direction. Whoops.

'Instead, she very much regrets having invited Ezri Dax to lunch in the replimat, the way she and Jadzia always . . . used to.' )

Title: Walking Out
Fandom: The Hobbit

Rating & Warnings: PG

Disclaimer: I don't own The Hobbit.
Summary: Sequel to Out of Step. A few weeks after discovering Thranduil's feelings for him, Bard still does not know whether he wishes to court him. After all, they have rarely spoken outside the meeting room--do they truly know each other? This chapter: The first day of walking out.
Author's Notes: What happens when you take two guys who don't know how to relax and stick them together for a day? This chapter, apparently.

On a side note, for those who are curious, this is what a faering looks like.

'Beg your pardon, sire, but . . . King Thranduil is here to see you.' )

Summary: When "Torin" Garak's coworker asks him to get rid of the Human boy asking for a job at their Cardassian restaurant, Garak decides to do the manager's job for her and hire "Julian Banting" instead.
Author's Notes: ngl this was one of my absolute favourite fics to write out of the entire series, and like the Arranged Marriage one, I have a few more ideas for it kicking around the back of my head. Whether I'll get around to them remains to be seen, but I hope I'll have the time eventually.

'Garak, there's some Human boy looking for work out front and he won't leave.' )

Genre: Romance
Rating & Warnings: G
Words: 4622 this part; 8707 overall.
Disclaimer: I don't own the above media.
Summary: To repair the damage done by its interference with its colonists in the Demilitarised Zone, the Cardassian government has proposed a marriage-enjoinment between one of its citizens and one of the Federation's to symbolise the renewed relations between the two governments. Julian had gladly agreed to marry Garak, Central Command's "volunteer," but now he's learning all over again that nothing to do with Cardassians in general and Garak in particular is as simple as it appears on the surface. This chapter: The wedding-enjoinment ceremony.
Author's Notes: Holy shit, y'all. I had not been expecting this level of response. I'm very glad to see that this has been well received, and I can only hope the concluding chapter is a satisfying one.

Anyone who's curious about the song Garak sings in this, click here once you've finished the chapter.

Thanks for reading!

Whoever had come up with the tradition of not seeing your partner before the wedding, Julian decided, had been a sadist. )

Julian had gladly agreed to marry Garak, Central Command's "volunteer," but now he's learning all over again that nothing involving Cardassians in general and Garak in particular is as simple as it appears on the surface.
Author's Notes: The sequel to Chapter 12 of my fic involving the 30=Day Cheesy Tropes challenge. The trope was, unsurprisingly, "arranged marriage." I had been trying to keep thing short, but by the time I finished writing that chapter, I had way more ideas in my head that were demanding I write them. Eventually, I gave in and got down some of them, and this is the result.

Who knew this trope could be so much fun?

'But the fact of the matter is, I can't make someone else do this. At the very least, I know Garak, and I know that, whatever he might have done, it's in the past. He's a different man now, I'm sure of it.' )

Summary: Nog has a lot to get used to at Starfleet Academy--starting with his roommate.
Author's Notes: In response to cosmictuesdays' prompt:

Prompt four: Nog at Starfleet Academy. Does he need special accommodations? How does he deal with the culture shift? Does he find the climate of San Francisco pleasant or unreasonable?


I would absolutely love to have made this longer, but at the time of its writing, my offline life hadn't been conducive to writing, so, well, that's all I've got.

I went with the "sir as default" thing that Star Trek did when it was airing, but yeah. Someday there's going to be a fic about this.

'HEY.' )

Summary: Asbel and Richard have confessed their feelings to each other and are now boyfriends. The only problem is, Asbel has no idea what being a boyfriend actually consists of.
Author's Notes: I wrote this quite a while ago, and I was hoping to get it posted in time for Richass Week on tumblr, but obviously that didn't happen. Whoops.

This follows immediately after To See His Smile, but it isn't necessary to have read it to understand what's going on in this.

But how was he supposed to be Richard's boyfriend? )

Summary: When Richard confesses a long-held secret on Lhant Hill, Asbel is left trying to understand just what it means to him.
Author's Notes: This is yet another fic in my Time-Strengthened Ties AU, wherein Richard spends the better part of the year in Lhant as a child. I haven't really concerned myself with the chronology of these fics, so I suppose it's more in the same 'verse rather than being a direct sequel to the other ones I've posted. So yeah.

'Asbel,' Richard said suddenly. 'Let's go to Lhant Hill.' )

Summary: It's for Julian's sake that he and Garak are visiting Risa on a rare vacation--but Garak discovers the place is not without its charms.
Author's Notes: When I wrote this one, it had been after I'd spent a while writing a wide variety of fics about quite a number of characters. Consequently, I'd been feeling the need for some good old-fashioned established relationship fluff. So, well, this came out. Aside from a little thinking about the conditions on various planets, I had no other reason whatsoever for writing it, so--enjoy these two being happy. <3

When one half of a couple was among the very best doctors on a still-recovering planet and the other was an important government minister, people simply did not want you to leave. )

Summary: After a week of rain, Asbel knows exactly what he wants to do with his friends to celebrate his freedom from the manor.
Author's Notes: This is yet another installment in my AU wherein Richard spends nearly a year in Lhant, as opposed to nearly a day. It's basically pure, unadulterated fluff from beginning to end--as are most of the things I write for this 'verse, but you know.

'Their game was going to go down in Lhant history and it was all because of him.' )

Summary: "...[T]he dictator is merely the tip of the whole festering boil of social pus from which dictators emerge; shoot one, and there’ll be another one along in a minute." - Terry Pratchett. Approximately six weeks after The Circle's fall from power, a fragment of the organisation returns to lash out against the only Cardassian living on Deep Space Nine. What the terrorists didn't anticipate, however, was being interrupted mid-abduction.
Author's Notes: This fic is what I've mentally termed my Bajoran baby. I've been working on it for approximately half a year now--so actually, I suppose it counts as a long Bajoran pregnancy.

I had several goals in writing this fic, some of which won't become clear until later on. The primary one was to challenge myself to write an episode of DS9, using its format, plot structure, and some of its tropes. (Some of said tropes, however, I played around with a little.) It was a fun exercise that took me well outside my usual style, and someday, I may very well try it again.

Another reason for writing this was to tie up a few loose ends from the three-part Season 2 opening: "The Homecoming," "The Circle," and "The Siege." There were several things about those episodes that make sense from a series production point of view, such as why The Circle was never heard from again even if it's very difficult to completely wipe out a terrorist cell all in one go--especially one with that level of support. And, well, why they attacked Quark as opposed to Garak, since, you know, budgets and hiring actors, and so forth. But these weren't very satisfying to me from a storytelling point of view, and so I decided to play around with the situation.

A huge thank you goes to tinsnip, who gave me an extremely thorough beta involving just about everything and who suggested the title for the story (you don't want to know what it would have been called if I were left my own devices), and to Yosie, who's been reading my writing for thirteen years now (!) and knows where I make my mistakes. This is a hell of a lot better story thanks to them. <3

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my Bajoran baby, haha.

Summary: The moment the messages start, Julian knows it's going to be a dangerous shift.
Author's Notes: I am pretty sure this is not what was meant by "anonymous love letters." I am also pretty sure I don't care--I had way too much fun with this. Poor Julian.

He snapped his mouth shut just in time, for the next words on the screen, displayed in stark green letters, were: 'looked particularly handsome this morning.' )

Summary: This Cardassian fellow Julian has just met at a dull post-fashion show party is really very fascinating--but why does he make his date so flustered?
Author's Notes: This scenario is sort of loosely based on 24th-century canon--very loosely. It's not a prompt that interests me very much, so I didn't spend as much time as usual working out the details.

Instead, I took this as an opportunity to play around with the weird contradiction DS9's writers seem to have unintentionally introduced, wherein Bashir is a lovely human being but kind of an ass when it comes to dating. I'm not sure if I was able to keep that balance, but it was fun to try anyway.

Title: Fifty Shades of Grey (Star Trek remix)

Summary: The back cover for the first installment of the latest Alpha Quadrant sensation: Fifty Shades of Grey.
Author's Notes: I'm sure someone must have thought of this before. But when you have Garak, a Cardassian, delivering the following complaint to Dr. Bashir about the Romulans, you can't just leave it alone.

Ah, yes, Romulus. How well I remember it. You'll find the predominant colour to be grey. The buildings, the clothes, the people. Did you know that the Romulan heart itself is grey? It's true. And altogether appropriate for such an unimaginative race.
