Disclaimer: I don't own these characters--they are based off of the actors' portrayals of characters in HBO's The Pacific, not the real people themselves. Absolutely no disrespect is intended.
Author's Note: I have this tendency where I think "oh hey, that's a cool idea, I think I'll write 2k words about it before returning to the things I should actually be doing!" and end up vomiting 30k words into a word document. But considering this has happened twice now for Ack Ack and Hillbilly, I'm honestly not sure if it's just me or the sheer perfection of these two characters. This fic is entirely the fault of [profile] chargasm--if she hadn't encouraged me to take a second look at it, it definitely wouldn't have been written. <333 This fic also wouldn't have been possible without [profile] softshinythings who graciously allowed me to keyboardsmash at her throughout the painful week that it took me to write this. I have no idea how many times I whined about how much story there was to write. Massive amounts of love to [personal profile] skew_whiff and [profile] skylilies for all of their support. <3 This was written for Team Pacific in HBO War-A-Thon.

Characters/Pairing: Ack Ack/Hillbilly
Summary: Just him, and what would never be. A coda to a bullet down, from Eddie's POV.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters--they are based off of the actors' portrayals of characters in HBO's The Pacific, not the real people themselves.
Author's Note: So I was going through my fandom folders and realized that I had never posted this particular fic even though I wrote it last summer. My style has definitely changed somewhat since that time but I still find this acceptable enough to post. :) It's a bit PWP-ish and a little heavy on the angst. Not sure if it's absolutely necessary to read the original piece (beyond realizing that it's a modern AU) but it would definitely place it in better context!

Disclaimer: I don't own these characters--they are based off of the actors' portrayals of characters in HBO's The Pacific, not the real people themselves. Absolutely no disrespect is intended.
Author's Note: SO. Funny story, this piece was intended to be a short 2k word piece at maximum. And then ummm, somehow it evolved into ~27k words of ridiculous AU? This fic wouldn't have been possible without several people. [profile] spirograph and [personal profile] uniformly put up with me whining about this fic for the entire month it took me to write this and helped push me through crucial plot points as well as being HUGE ENABLERS IN GENERAL. Also, this fic would have been a million times more unintelligible if not for the amazing beta work of [profile] jeanquirieplus! I've stared at this thing for like WAY TOO LONG and she just CLEANED EVERYTHING UP AND WAS AMAZING ABOUT IT. SO MUCH LOVE FOR YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY OK. ♥♥♥

Title: All These Roads (they lead to you)
Fandom: The Pacific
Rating: R
Word Count: 18,290
Characters/Pairing: Sledge/Snafu
Summary: “Ever seen the Atlantic Ocean?” Snafu asked rhetorically as he turned the car east. It was the last thing that either of them said, lapsing into a comfortable silence.
Written: post-episode 10
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters--they are based off of the actors' portrayals of characters in HBO's The Pacific, not the real people themselves.
Author's Note: This fic is written for [personal profile] uniformly who got me on this military kick and sucked me into The Pacific with unrepentant glee. Even though I have been nonfunctional for the last four days because I have been writing the hell out of this fic, I love her and forgive her anyways. Special thanks goes to [profile] spirograph who saved this fic from the fate of turning out crap due to 3AM writing (but tried many many times to sabotage this fic by making me laugh during the writing if VERY SERIOUS SCENES--it's okay I FORGIVE YOU). Thanks to both of them for listening to me whine throughout this entire process. <33
This was technically supposed to be my [profile] warbigbang but I finished it way too quickly and I will probably end up writing something stupid like a college AU for it instead.
ALSO [personal profile] uniformly suggested this for representative music and I have to agree with her pretty hard. <3

sherlock - renegades

Title: Renegades
Fandom: Sherlock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 39,405
Characters/Pairing: John/Sherlock
Summary: Sherlock Holmes takes down Moriarty’s syndicate. He also takes John Watson with him. AU of The Reichenbach Fall.
Warnings: graphic depictions of violence, torture, dubious consent, drug use
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters.
Author's Note: From a word-count perspective, this piece is definitely my longest. And from a plot perspective, probably also the most intensive. And believe it or not, this was the very first fic longfic I tried to write in this fandom. This fic has the following people to thank:
[profile] paitac was the person who conceived of this idea and expressed it in a comment to me days after Reichenbach aired. The thought of these two traveling the world and kicking ass would not leave me alone after, so I stole her idea and created an absolute monstrosity out of it.
Mar for being the best Spanish consultant a writer could ever ask for. <33
[profile] anonbegone, as always, for kicking out my Americanisms and making sure I don’t embarrass myself in public, and for being the best beta in the world. <33
And last but absolutely not least: [profile] tourofduty and [personal profile] awesome who listened to me whine my way through sorting out the issues between these two idiots, patiently endured my raging erection for all things organic chemistry, and enthusiastically cheered me on as I stumbled my way towards the finish line. This fic would absolutely not exist if not for them and I am grateful every day that they exist in my life.

Fandom: Sherlock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 40,254
Characters/Pairing: John/Sherlock
Summary: How do you keep your omega safe when the biggest threat is yourself?
Omegaverse, Ragnarok Online fusion--though it's not necessary to have any knowledge of Ragnarok to read.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters.
Author's Note: Hello and welcome to the most idfic of idfic. If you are looking for something of actual literary merit, I suggest one of the many other brilliant works in this fandom!
If you do not know what omegaverse is, I strongly suggest reading this primer first so you aren't in for any disturbing surprises. Please heed the warnings--the dubcon in here verges on noncon.
No prior knowledge of Ragnarok Online is needed to read this fic. You just know that it's an massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (like World of Warcraft but lamer) that I played in my teens and subsequently became nerdy enough to write 40k worth of fusion fanfiction about. Here are some helpful links for the uninitiated: these are the job classes with some of the major characters highlighted in red (if you played RO a while ago you'll notice that there's a new transcendent class), pecos are total rip offs of chocobos though they also rode gryphons, and here's the world map made by some private server that I based my locations off of.
This fic was initially written for Melody because she wanted pining John but then I bastardized it with omegaverse on Julia's insistence so now it's for both of them?? I'll have to write non-A/B/O pining John later. As always, I really wouldn't be able to get past the 3k mark without Julia's support so I am eternally grateful for her patience. ♥

sherlock - we move lightly

Fandom: Sherlock
Rating: R
Word Count: 2,236
Characters/Pairing: John/Sherlock
Summary: For those willing to go through hell to save a loved one's soul. Post-Reichenbach.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters.
Author's Note: Warning for mild gore. This was written for the johnlockchallenges exchange on tumblr for anathemagerminabunt. The prompt was "Death shall have no dominion," which lead me to draw from the entire poem by Dylan Thomas. It ended up relying more on literature than I expected--it might be a good idea to have an idea of Dante's Inferno (or just the nine circles of hell) in order to really understand this fic. It has not undergone any external editing since it's not very long.

“I’m sorry, Sherlock,” Mrs. Hudson says. She tries to touch him but he moves away. )
