Title: First Impressions
Characters:
Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Rose Tyler, with brief appearances by Castiel, Gwen Cooper, Jack Harkness, the Ninth Doctor and Martha Jones.
Summary:
Adopted by the Sidhe as a teenager, Dean Winchester goes out into the world again for the first time with his trusty elvensteed named "Baby" and his adoptive brother "Sam" (Samanderil, a young Sidhe orphan raised alongside Dean at Singer's Grove). They're on their way to Torchwood Grove, hopefully to find work in the rough world of the SouthWest Road Racing Association.

Their first impression isn't exactly what they'd hoped for.

Notes: Written for Fanwork Friday - this time the theme was 'species switch.' I got a crack idea to crossover one of my favorite urban fantasy worlds (from the SERRAted Edge novels by Mercedes Lackey) with SuperWho. The end is a bit rushed, but I got wind of this challenge a little late and wanted to make sure the story was as complete as possible for Friday. Also, I'm mean to Ianto again. I know, I'm really sorry.

-

Baby made a decent imitation of a V8 Chevy small block. The sound didn't belong to an actual motor, so Dean couldn't call himself a completely satisfied customer. An actual motor would mean it was a car and not a magical construct, though. A car wasn't sentient enough to save his ass on its own steam. Plus, a real Chevy Impala would be a gas hog and contained enough steel to rip the very foundations of Underhill... well... asunder, for lack of a less Seeleighe-court word.

Dean was kinda tired of Seeleighe-court words. It was his first unchaperoned trip out of Underhill since he'd been brought there as a teenager, and for years he'd been chafing to get the hell out of Dodge.

Well, 'unchaperoned' was open to interpretation.

"I thought you wanted a Mustang," Sam ran both hands along the upholstry as their wheels left the grassy downs of Ellen's keep and touched down on solid pavement. Underhill snapped closed behind them like a coin purse, and they were alone in a wilderness of New Mexico cliffs.

Dean shrugged. "Changed my mind. The pun was horrible, I'd never keep a straight face."

Title: Play It Again Jack
Author: [personal profile] cuda
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] xnoventumx
Characters/Pairings: Castiel/Captain Jack Harkness, some past Ianto/Captain Jack Harkness, mentions of past Angelo/Captain Jack, a little unrequited Castiel/Dean. Characters include: Rex Matheson, Martha Jones, The Winchesters, Ninth & Tenth Doctors, Rose Tyler, Torchwood 3 Team, and others from Supernatural and Torchwood. If you're a Clive Cussler fan, there's a little bit in here for you, too!
Fandoms: Supernatural, Torchwood, Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13 for a little sexuality, some violence, and some language.
Word Count: 41,676 words
Disclaimer: This work was not created for any profit. I do not claim ownership of any of these characters, worlds, or various television shows.
Warnings: Some canonical character deaths are mentioned, but not in detail.
Spoilers: VERY VERY SPOILERY for Torchwood, covers a lot of canon material all the way through Children of Earth and Miracle Day. Also spoilers for Supernatural up through the first two episodes of season 7. Story canon diverges from there.

Summary: Set after Miracle Day Torchwood, and current Supernatural Season 7 canon (disregarding anything that happens to Castiel following episode 2). Captain Jack Harkness is in the process of re-forming Torchwood on the west coast with the remnants of his team. A dire threat to the future of humanity has arrived on Earth without his knowledge and worse yet? They're looking for him. Jack is rescued short of catastrophe by Castiel. Claims to be an angel of the Lord, but all Jack knows for sure is that he's pushy, arrogant, humorless, and more buttoned up than the Royal Guard on parade day. Thus Jack finds himself on the Highway to Hell (or really, Kansas) on a mission to defeat a quasi-biblical, ferociously hungry race called "the Leviathan," change history and save the world. Again. ...Or was it for the fifth time? Maybe the seventh? Whatever. All he knows is that his directive explicitly forbids flirting.

This? This is going to be no fun. At all.

Martha


"Rules, my ass," Martha said to the man leaning against a telephone box in the middle of the pines, "that was direct intervention and you know it."

The Doctor crossed his arms and tipped his head thoughtfully. "We-ell, possibly. But then again, maybe it wasn't. Those rules, well," the arms uncrossed again, hands flashing restlessly, "they're more like guidelines, anyway."

"Tell me again," Rex crossed his arms to bundle himself up tighter in his parka. His breath smoked contrails off the side of the ship, "what the hell are we doing out here? If you want to dump a body, there's warmer places to do it. I could name you five, right now."

Stars filled my vision, one horizon to the other. I took a deep breath and sat up, and the distant rosy glow of city lights swam into view.

Gwen knew not to call. She had my number, of course - in more ways than one - but she had a family to protect. Until we made some progress with the Three Families, the entire world population was a potential threat.

So when Gwen called, somewhere between Breckenridge and Silverthorne, I got a little tense.

Play It Again Jack, Part 4

As far as I understand it, Henderson, Nevada is the place to live if you want to be in Las Vegas but at the same time you're sort of annoyed by... well... Vegas. It's filled with ritzy estates and expensive condominiums, along with the usual pretentious coffee bars and boutiques. I'm sure plenty of decent people live there too - after all, Angelo Colasanto lived there. He had his faults, but he wasn't a bad guy when I knew him.

Present Day
Jack


I'll never know how all this would have played out without intervention. The Doctor, Castiel, me - we'd all had a hand in it by then, whether we knew it or not. Maybe it was supposed to be fiddled with. Maybe time's like a half-finished song that way. It just waits around for someone to tweak the harmony just right, until the whole thing's so beautiful it breaks your heart.

Rose


Rose hadn't known the Doctor very long. They'd had a few adventures together, but the whole thing seemed a bit of a lark yet. He liked her, she was rather sure of that, and she certainly had more fun with him than she'd had in her previous nineteen years of living. The daring leather jacket, the air of mystery, the whole flying-through-space bit… maybe she was still waiting to wake up.

A SuperWho Big Bang Fic

Author's Notes: I could not, absolutely could not have finished this story without the help of my two favorite people on the planet. First, thank you to my girl, [personal profile] amberdark, for her brilliance, her patience, her encouragement, and her willingness to both give up time so I could write and put up with my incessant babbling. And second, thank you to my wingsister and beta [personal profile] touchofstrange whose formidable knowledge of the Whoniverse and Supernatural literally saved this fic a few times. Without you ladies, this story would still just be a lot of questions and half-finished ideas.

A MASSIVE thank you to Ash ([livejournal.com profile] xnoventumx) for signing up to be my artist! It was short notice and you are fantastically awesome for putting up with my frenzied emails. I hope you had fun! And I hope the story didn't give you a massive headache.

And last - but certainly not least! - to my SuperWho (and by extension, SuperWood and SuperWhoLock) Tumblr family. HEY! HEY GUYS! We've made our own damn fandom! You keep me supplied with screencaps, art, gifts, photosets, videos, theme songs, and ideas. Without you, I'd still be writing Castiel/Jack slash in a corner by myself. EVERYTHING IS SUPERWHO AND NOTHING HURTS.




Like sexuality, boarding school rules and paperclips, time can be bent. Since you're talking to me, I'm pretty sure you know that already. It can be twisted, folded back on itself, sliced apart and sewn together. For being intangible, it's one of the most readily manipulated substances in the universe. Right up there with water and a Traxxian after a few cocktails.

Kidding, kidding. The cocktails are optional.

It's a bit of a thematic mess, really.
cuda: Sam and Dean from Supernatural (what?)
Every night for weeks, I hear the next door neighbor railing at someone over the phone. I can't tell if it's the same person or different people, but it's always the same aggressive, loud, Baptist minister lecturing.

And you know, it's not the noise that bothers me. I could knock on the wall or just put my headphones on, which I do. It's more about the fact that this guy has some reason to rail at someone every night for weeks. It's got to be exhausting and internally upsetting to be that angry all the time.

I'm so glad to be back in my apartment, though. I'm also really glad I cleaned, because I came home to an empty sink and a nice clean floor. I was able to say hello to the furry land sharks (aka the cats), clean their box and then curl up on the couch with my laptop without a shred of guilt for undone projects. The apartment still does need some spot work, but on the whole, not too shabby!

Oh and, I've started using my tumblr again. I ditched its original purpose, and now I'm using it to blog/reblog .gifs and graphics and ficbits just like everybody else. If you're interested, I'm over here. Any and all are welcome! It's definitively Supernatural/Torchwood/SuperWho flavored, just FYI.

9200 words into my SuperWho Big Bang! I'm getting there! I may squeak by if I get my shoulder to the wheel this week. More importantly than the word count, the plot is diagrammed out. So hopefully I won't get too lost.

It's getting close to Yuletide fandom nomination time!

I'm not sure how I feel about Fast & Furious being on the ineligible fandoms list. It was getting to be a tradition with me to nominate Sahara, F&F, and Top Gun every year, and I liked my tradition. *wry*

But you know what? On the other hand, *sniff* it means our baby's grown up. It means that our fandom's big enough to not be rare. And at the same time, while I haven't scoped all of my fandom, I can say that my exposure to this corner of it has been positive. Friendly, welcoming people and damn good writers with the kind of thoughtful commentary and thirst for details I love to see. We may not be a rare fandom anymore, but we are still an absofrigginlutely awesome one.

Now if only Top Gun would catch up. *grin*

I have a growing list of fandoms on a notepad by the computer, so as soon as Yuletide opens up this year, I can nominate away.

Also, dunno if anyone in my small circle is interested in Supernatural/Whoniverse crossover fic, but I'm planning to sign up over at [livejournal.com profile] superwho_bb. Not sure if I'm going to submit "Grace," or start from scratch with a new one. This whole SuperWho concept caught me off guard - here I thought I was almost alone in this crack crossover I'd fallen into completely by accident and minecraft. And apparently, I'm not, and I can't wait to see the Impala/TARDIS fic I saw someone sign up for.

There's also some really interesting fanvids people have made - just search superwho at youtube and see what I'm talking about.
