sholio: heart in a cup of tea (Heart)
My stocking is full of lovely things! Fic, icons, recipes, pretty pictures, vid recs, and lots more. <3

Here are the fics I wrote. First, on AO3:

Avalanche Country (Agent Carter, 9200 wds, Peggy + Jack + Daniel gen; Jack and Peggy are caught in an avalanche while on a mission.)
Droid Soul (Star Wars TFA, 800 wds, Poe + BB-8, daemon AU; Poe's daemon settles as a droid.)
Glass Walls (Legends of Tomorrow, 5100 wds, Rip + ensemble; Rip is gone, except he's not. A slightly AU take on the first half of season two.)
Sea Change (Legends of Tomorrow, 1500 wds, Mick/Ray; It happens in the middle of a firefight, because of course it does.)
Afterwards (Legends of Tomorrow, 1400 wds, Mick/Ray, explicit; Some missions end better than others.)
til human voices wake us (Captain America, 2100 wds, Steve/Bucky/Natasha OT3-ish gen-ish; Bucky is roused out of cryo in Wakanda; Steve and Natasha are there for him.)
Housewarming (The Flash, 700 wds, Iris/Barry; Iris wants to make her new place with Barry feel like a home.)
The Firestorm Wives Club (The Flash/Legends of Tomorrow, 1300 wds, Caitlin + Clarissa Stein; Sometimes you need to talk to someone who understands.)
Getting Out (White Collar, 1300 wds, Peter + Neal + ensemble; Rescuing Neal is only the first step.)

And then in individual stockings:

Once Upon a Time ficlet - Regina + Henry
Steerswoman character study - Rowan + Bel
Forever Knight ficlet - Nick/Janette
White Collar ficlet - Peter and Neal babysitting baby Neal
White Collar snippet - Peter takes Neal jogging
sholio: (WhiteCollar-Hard Sell Peter Neal)
The Fall Fest at [ profile] collarcorner (patterned after Fandom Stocking) is done and all the gifts are revealed! You can check it out at the LJ community or the AO3 community (note: the AO3 collection doesn't have everything; most of the shorter ficlets, art, etc are at the LJ community posts only).

I wrote the following gifts:

Sweet Escape - Elizabeth takes over Neal's bakery after his "death."

Wings So Bright - Neal wingfic, also for my h/c bingo "wings" square. Neal's favorite memory from his early childhood was going flying with his mother; he didn't yet know that no one else could see her wings.

Happy Paws - Having found out that the FBI agent chasing him has a puppy, Neal can't resist trying to make friends with it.

Three Restaurants - Three times Sara and Peter had lunch or dinner together, from pre- to post-series.

Harvest Moon - Alex character study.

Untitled Peter & Neal ficlet for the prompt "near miss."

And I also have some great stuff in my treat basket - art, fics, a fic cover and more!
sholio: Peggy, Jack and Daniel from Agent Carter (Avengers-Agent Carter OT3)
In my July fic prompt call, [personal profile] muccamukk gave me a brilliant (and diabolical) prompt for established Peggy/Jack/Daniel in which one of them loses their memory and forgets everything since early season one. I went with Peggy, and I usually offer to write 100 words when I do these, but I am now 20K into this thing and it just won't quit. Anyway, I've posted a few brief teaser snippets on Tumblr: first snippet, second snippet, third snippet. In case this is relevant to anyone's interests. :D

I've posted a few things on AO3 lately that I forgot to crosspost/link here:

Too Close for Comfort (Agent Carter)
Peggy + Jack gen bed-sharing fic.

Worth a Thousand Words (White Collar)
Short fic from a Tumblr prompt in which Neal has laryngitis.

Riding the Rails (White Collar)
This was a Fandom Stocking AU in which Peter is the con and Neal is the FBI agent, but now there's another little installment with con!Peter on the tracking anklet. (For a prompt by [ profile] lov_pb, I think?)

I also wrote a couple of ficlets for this commentfic meme:

Christmases, Peggy/Jack/Daniel, for the prompt Any poly grouping: okay but WHOSE FAMILY gets [culturally significant family holiday] when?
Ant-Man ficlet for the prompt Scott Lang takes his daughter trick-or-treating

And this one is not mine, just a rec, but I ran across this adorable fanart of my Agent Carter babies a little while back, and right now I have it open in a tab because it makes me happy. (There is so little fanart of them!)
sholio: Neal from White Collar looking down (WhiteCollar-Neal sidelight)
The Long Winter (22295 words) by Sholio
Chapters: 3/3
Fandom: White Collar
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Peter Burke & Neal Caffrey, Elizabeth Burke/Peter Burke
Characters: Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke, Elizabeth Burke, Diana Berrigan
Additional Tags: Original Character(s), Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Alternate Universe - Dark
Summary: When things fall apart, you just have to keep going. This is a post-season-four AU that was 95% written during the season four hiatus; then of course season five came along and jossed it thoroughly.

So I finally finished and posted this, which I wrote most of back in 2013. It's kind of dark and kind of bitter, and I will freely admit that at least some of the writing process for this fic was basically therapy in fic form, an outlet for my mixed feelings about season four. I still feel somewhat ambivalent about posting it, but I didn't want to put in all that work and then stick it in a drawer. You should know going in that it doesn't end happily for all of the characters; however, it's not a deathfic or a total miseryfest. Feel free to ask me questions if there's something specific you need to know before reading.

sholio: Peggy Carter smiling (Avengers-Peggy smile)
I am ONE SLEEP away from new episodes of Agent Carter!

(Well, maybe two sleeps, since iTunes tends to get the files up really late, especially when you're starting a subscription for a new series. BUT.)

Speaking of which, I wrote a fic for [community profile] fan_flashworks's current challenge, "On the Outside":

Outliers (Agent Carter, 3200 words, gen ... ish)
Maybe soulmarks mean whatever you want them to mean.

As noted in the notes, I finally wrote a soulmark AU and it's the world's gennest soulmark AU ... OOPS. But there are still some pairings in it. Kinda. This one is going to be so hard to tag when I finally put it on AO3. I'll repost it properly here when the exclusive period at [community profile] fan_flashworks runs out.

Also, most people have already found these via my fandom stocking post, but the other night I did something I've been meaning to do for a while, and created several files on AO3 for fics bits that are too short or incomplete to post on their own.

Agent Carter scraps - this presently contains, I think, all or at least most of the AC fic bits that have been posted in various places (from Fandom Stocking, [personal profile] such_heights' Kissing Fest last year, and tumblr)

MCU scraps - has this year's Fandom Stocking, the Kissing Fest one, and a bit more.

White Collar scraps - has this year's Fandom Stocking so far, and that's it. I know there's a lot more out there though.

Stargate Atlantis scraps - oh god, this is going to take FOREVER. Has this year's Fandom Stocking so far.

sholio: Cocoa in red cup with cinnamon stick (Christmas cocoa)
Some of my yuletide stories got recced! \o/ That's very flattering; I'm not sure if it's happened before. And after not doing it for a couple of years, it's nice to participate again. I didn't sign up officially, but I did write three treats. Two are in the same fandom; one is in a different fandom. None are fandoms I've written before. And while two of the stories are not, I think, particularly recognizable as mine, one is SO OBVIOUSLY a trope I'm into that I think it will surprise no one at reveals. There are your clues. :D

I also wrote a longish White Collar fic during the couple of weeks around Christmas, that I was posting in installments to AO3, which is done now.

Watcher in the Storm (15211 words) by Sholio
Chapters: 4/4
Fandom: White Collar
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Peter Burke & Neal Caffrey
Characters: Peter Burke, Neal Caffrey, Mozzie (White Collar), June Ellington, Elizabeth Burke
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Post-Canon, Reunions
Summary: Six months post-finale, Peter and Neal still haven't seen each other. But that changes when Neal becomes ill. Written for this prompt on [ profile] collarcorner.

Also over at [ profile] collarcorner, there is a poll and discussion on what to do with the comm in 2016.
sholio: (WhiteCollar-Hard Sell Peter Neal)
If any fanfic-inclined people want to get a taste of the worldbuilding for the "Shadows of the Apt" series I keep going on about, I've written a fusion with White Collar and posted it over on AO3:

Out of the Wastes [Peter, Neal, a little Diana; gen. A soldier and an enslaved enemy combatant are the sole survivors of an attack, stranded in the wilderness and forced to cooperate or die.]

There are no spoilers for the books, and everything you need to know to understand the story is in the beginning notes (no canon knowledge required). Very little knowledge of White Collar is necessary either, come to think of it, since the story takes place entirely with alternate versions of the characters in another world.
sholio: Diana from White Collar (WhiteCollar-Diana)
I still feel lousy, and while I couldn't sleep last night, I started writing a White Collar thing that is, apparently, an attempt to make myself feel better by giving these characters an infinitely worse day than the one I'm having.

It has all the makings of something that will never be finished, though, because I started with a vague idea and a desire to write ALL THE ANGST EVER, and then I kind of went off the rails, and now I don't know where the hell this is going to end up. So I figured I'd post what I have, and maybe it will develop into an actual story later, or maybe this is all you're going to get. Fair warning!

Diana found out about Peter's death a week after she'd started her new job in DC. )
sholio: brightly colored Christmas cookies (Christmas cookies red-green)
The Fandom Stockings are revealed! Mine is here and I got lots of lovely stuff -- pictures and ficlets and recs and greetings. I'm delighted with it. :D

I did not manage to get to all the stockings I wanted to fill this year, but I ended up writing a fair amount of stuff, though it's mostly unfinished snippets. Here's what I wrote this year:

White Collar:
A scene from an AU in which Peter is a criminal and Neal is an agent for [personal profile] veleda_k
Post-finale reunion ficlet for [personal profile] leesa_perrie
A different post-finale reunion ficlet for [personal profile] pipilj
A little more of the Iceland fic I posted in comments awhile back for [personal profile] aqwt101 (here's the other piece)
A little more of the White Collar/October Daye fusion Frith and I share for [personal profile] frith_in_thorns (following on directly from the snippet she wrote for me last fandom stocking)
Snippets from a post-finale Christmas story for [personal profile] sheron
Werewolf Peter playing in the snow for [ profile] kanarek13
Diana is afflicted with Theo's uncles for [personal profile] sheenianni
(the latter two written as snippets in my own comments as thank-yous to people who gave me something when I hadn't given them anything!)

Scene from a fic in which Bucky never gets his memories back but becomes friends with Steve anyway for [personal profile] trobadora

btw, it is perfectly fine with me if people who aren't the recipient comment on these; I think it's perfectly fine, although you might wait 'til the recipient has a chance to comment first if they haven't yet. :D I would have posted some of them on AO3, but none are really finished enough to do that (and the only one which actually is a complete story, Veleda's story, has a major plot hole that needs to be fixed >_>).
sholio: Christmas ornaments (Christmas ornament)
Title: Fairytale of New York
Fandom: White Collar
Word Count: 3700
Pairings: canon ones
Summary: Three views of Christmas, on the first Christmas after the series finale. For my h/c bingo "begging" square. Huge finale spoilers.

Fairytale of New York )
sholio: Autumn leaves (Autumn-leaves 1)
I wrote a brief(ish) fic set after the White Collar finale, for my h/c bingo "hallucinations" square:

White For Forgiveness (2200 words, Sara-centric, post-finale w/major spoilers)
sholio: (WhiteCollar-Hard Sell Peter Neal)
I was poking at some of my fics today, trying to find one I want to work on (I have 13K now on the White Collar/Winter Soldier AU, and yet I am obnoxiously stuck) and I stumbled across this unfinished time-loop fic. It's really a neat premise (at least I think so) but is highly unlikely to ever be finished because it relies on the character dynamics as I imagined them for season six, based on the end of season five, which is COMPLETELY not what they actually are. So I figured I'd go ahead and toss what I have of it onto LJ/DW for people to read, if they like.

Start, Stop, Rewind
Gen, 3500 words; spoilers for the end of season five, but no actual ones for season six since this was written before it started.

I note again that this story is unfinished and probably will never be finished, so be prepared for that going in.

Start, Stop, Rewind (at least as much of it as I wrote) )
sholio: Peter from White Collar smiling (WhiteCollar-Peter)
Title: Afterparty
Fandom: White Collar
Pairing: canon ones
Word Count: 2400
Summary: 6x04 missing scene. Peter's in too deep to get out, but at least he's not the only one. For my h/c bingo "arrest" square.

Afterparty - contains 6x04 spoilers )
sholio: Jack-o-lanterns (Halloween-jack-o-lanterns)
All the Halloween ficlets are done. Thank you to everyone who prompted me! The longer ones were posted or reposted on AO3:

Winternight (MCU, 1200 wds) - Jane and Thor at an Asgardian autumn/day-of-the-dead festival (post-Thor 2).

waited long enough (MCU, 1400 wds) - Natasha-centric timestamp fic for Written in Blood and Bone.

Out of the Cold (MCU, 1600 wds) - My take on the "Steve and Bucky can't get warm after 70 years frozen" fic trope.

Wolf Run (White Collar, 2200 wds) - Another fic in the Peter-and-Diana-are-werewolves universe.

The rest of the (shorter) fics are linked from the original post.

Otherwise, 'tis a quiet night. We're too far out in the country to get trick-or-treaters (though I usually try to have candy on hand just in case, after a decade we've yet to get a single one, and this year I didn't bother). I have a glass of wine, and now I'm gonna work on this month's reward package for the Kismet Patreon backers.
sholio: Text: "Age shall not weary her, nor custom stale her infinite squee" (Infinite Squee)
Last night we watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And so ... I wrote a snippet of a White Collar fusion. (WHAT.) This is not an actual fic, just a vignette, and it basically stops in the middle of a scene. I don't know if it's going to grow into the epic story it apparently wants to be, but I figured I'd toss it out there.

There are only the mildest of spoilers for the movie. If you know who the Winter Soldier is, you basically don't have to worry about being spoiled. If you aren't familiar with the Marvel universe, you can assume "generic spy shenanigans with bionic soldiers" and proceed accordingly.

White Collar/Winter Soldier fusion (about 2500 wds) )
sholio: Neal from White Collar, hand on hat (WhiteCollar-Neal hat)
For [ profile] kanarek13's Get Well Fest!

Title: catch me (if you can)
Fandom: White Collar
Word Count: 3600
Pairing: Peter/Neal (with background Peter/Elizabeth)
Rating: PG
Summary: Post-anklet. Peter decides it's Neal's turn to chase him for a change. Season five spoilers, but the fic itself is pure fluff.

It was just past 6:30 a.m. when Neal let himself into the Burke townhouse. )
sholio: Peter & Neal from White Collar with a soft lighting filter (WhiteCollar-Peter Neal soft filter)
I am sleepy and don't feel like doing anything of the many things I should actually be doing. SO HAVE SOME FIC INSTEAD.

Title: Through the Storm and Safe to Shore
Fandom: White Collar
Word Count: 9300
Pairing: Gen
Summary: Post-5x13, Neal's captors convince him that Peter is dead. For a prompt by [ profile] leesa_perrie at [ profile] collarcorner.
Notes: Thanks to [personal profile] frith_in_thorns for beta and cheerleading! .... and a special thanks for talking me out of my rather bleak original ending. This one is much better. :)

Through the Storm and Safe to Shore )
sholio: Neal from White Collar looking down (WhiteCollar-Neal sidelight)
Title: Port in a Storm
Fandom: White Collar
Word Count: 5600
Summary: Section Chief Corinne Brauer of the FBI's DC office is having a very strange day. Set after the end of season five; spoilers for 5x13. Outside POV with Neal, Elizabeth and Peter.
Notes: This is for a prompt [personal profile] frith_in_thorns left on collarcorner, which I'm linking to rather that copy-pasting because it's spoilery for the end of the season.

Cover by [ profile] kanarek13

Port in a Storm )
sholio: Peter & Neal from White Collar with a soft lighting filter (WhiteCollar-Peter Neal soft filter)
Title: Keeper
Fandom: White Collar
Word Count: 2700
Summary: 5x13 tag - spoilers for the finale! This is just unabashed floof. That's pretty much the plot: fluffy h/c.
Notes: I really appreciate the encouragement of those of you who talked about the episode with me during my post-finale GLOOM period (especially [personal profile] veleda_k, [personal profile] frith_in_thorns, and [personal profile] tuppence) and helped talk me back around to a cheerful place, and this fic borrows some bits of post-finale character headcanon from that discussion, especially [personal profile] tuppence's comments. Thank you!

Keeper - 5x13 spoilers )
