'You May Not Pass This Way Again' (01/01)  
Title: You May Not Pass This Way Again
Fandoms: Iron Man/Marvel Movies, Pirates of the Caribbean, Highlander
Rating: General Audiences
Characters: Tony Stark, Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Walt Disney, Clark Gable, Charlotte Sparrow/Black
Notes: I've always said that the Jack Sparrow I write is the one from the end of the first movie, after he shoots Barbossa, the Jack with the façade stripped way. As this series as progressed, I began to realize that Charlotte's Jack isn't necessarily the exact one presented in the films. This is my explanation.
Summary: A chance meeting at a party, one man's dream versus another's, can change your future.

I actually managed to write a Christmas fic this year -- even if it is a few days late. This takes place right after 'What's Rule Number One?', set just after the end of Iron Man III.

Rating: PG
Character(s): Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, Ezra Standish, Methos, Charlotte Sparrow.
Notes:: A bit of a sequel to Vigil, set during those last scenes in Iron Man III. Het flavoured friendship fic, complete, Highlander/Iron Man with Magnificent Seven seasonings.
Summary: Tony knows what his priorities are.



Priorities

"How's our patient?" Charlotte asked Ezra as she entered Tony's Shanghai hospital room—though room didn't quite cover it. It was more like a penthouse suite in some five star hotel. )

As soon as I saw the character bio clip for Melinda May, I had to write this. I don't think I've written fic for something I've never seen before, but I took an instant liking to Agent May, and wanted to write something with her in it.

Fandom: Agents of SHIELD//Marvel Movieverse
Rating: PG
Warnings/Notes: Complete, gen friendship. Takes place between the end of Iron Man III and the beginning of Agents of SHIELD.
Character(s): Agent Melinda May, Original Character.
Summary: Two very different women find they have more in common than they might have thought.

===============================



Fair Winds and Following Seas


"I knew I should have gotten the collision insurance when I picked up the rental." Charlotte grinned at her own joke. However, the woman across the desk from her didn't seem to appreciate the humour.

"That chopper is an expensive piece of equipment, ma'am," Agent Melinda May replied almost accusingly, stamping one corner of the requisition sheet in front of her with an authoritative zeal.  )

Notes: I've written the Hulk. Understand, my only exposure to him is really the Avengers movie, and yet.... When the Hulk starts chattering at you, you pay attention.

Something of a companion piece to Green Tea, though not a sequel. Hulk's thoughts on 'the Puny God' derive from my story White As Snow, Red As Blood, both on AO3, along with this story.

Title from the song, 'Rainbow Connection' -- if you aren't familiar, look it up on YouTube. Really, you have to :D

~Hulk likes tickles, and rain in the sunshine. Lightening is good too.

Rainbow Connection

"I can never adequately repay you for all you've done," the tiny old one said to Bruce. She squeezed his arm, and Hulk shivered. It tickled when the tiny old one touched Bruce. Hulk wished she could touch him, wondering what the tickle would feel like then. But that would make Bruce unhappy, so Hulk was content with just the little tickles. But maybe one day, Hulk would get to touch the tiny one, and he would know.

Bruce smiled at her—Bruce liked the tiny old one. )

Part the last! I think this is the fastest I've ever completed a long fic -- you didn't have to wait three years for this one :D

I hope you enjoyed it!

Now that we're to the end of Iron Man II, we're in Tony/Pepper territory, if you recall the scene with them on the rooftop at the end of the movie. I'm not much of a shippy writer, so I hope I do the pairing justice in this part. I'm also happy you introduce you to Agents Yang and Bandopadhyay in this final part. Hey, what's a few more OCs?

Part Eight


Stark Expo ~ Flushing, New Jersey

"So why exactly am I being punished?" Charlotte asked plaintively.

They were in the VIP lounge of the main auditorium, watching the crowd file in for the presentation Justin Hammer was scheduled to make. Charlotte's presentation, which had been set for the beginning of the evening, was now to be after Hammer's.

Pepper squeezed her shoulder sympathetically. )

Notes: Gen friendship fic. One of these days, I hope to write a full story based around the events of IM III, but till then, I had to write this little epilogue to get the voices out of my head. Spoilery note at the end.
Character(s): Tony Stark, Original Character
Summary: Tony has a lot to be grateful for - even if he did forget rule number one.

=______________________=



What's Rule Number One?

"Happy is going to hit the roof when he wakes up!" Charlotte said, pointing a finger at Tony. "What's rule number one, Tony?" she demanded.

He crinkled his eyes, as if thinking. "Don't swim for an hour after eating?"

"Try again."

"Don't tick you off when you're holding the bail money?" A smile tugged at his lips. )

The moment I've been waiting for - Tony finds out Charlotte knew Howard. Of course, I didn't know she did, not till Captain America came out, with the inclusion of Howard, which ran smack into our already established WWII history for Charlotte and Ezra. So not really her fault, you know? We'll blame Nick Fury for this one :D Again, a much longer part than initially intended - hope you don't mind!

Chapter Seven

Charlotte had found a—relatively—quiet corner of the deck to compose herself. This area was off limits to party goers, not far from Tony's master suite. She leaned over the railing, looking down at the cliffs and ocean below, letting the pull of the surf mesmerize her.

"No jumping," Methos called from behind her.

"Just once?" she asked, looking over her shoulder, managing a weak smile.

"Yes, well, maybe just once," he said, stopping next to her and putting an arm around her waist. )

Chapter Six

As they neared the end of the long winding driveway, Charlotte checked her 'Jarvis-phone' one last time for messages. As she started to put it in her evening bag, the AI's voice issued from the car's stereo speakers. "Madam, Mr. Stark requests your presence in his suite."

"You've got to be kidding me!"

"Indeed not, madam," Jarvis replied. "He was quite insistent."

She shook her head at the facetious note in Jarvis' response—he seemed more real to her some days than actual flesh and blood people she knew. )

Chapter Five

"Wasn't that something?" Joe Dawson jerked a thumb towards the flatscreen TV on the far wall of the saloon. The twenty-four hour news channel had just finished replaying, for what seemed like the hundredth time, Tony Stark's 'statement' last night from the deck of his Malibu home to the news helicopter hovering overhead.

Charlotte looked up briefly, the little lines of stress around her eyes fighting with the fatigue that weighted down her shoulders for dominance. )

"Faster this time," Charlotte instructed her student. Nodding, Jacob raised his sword, preparing for the next bout.

Jacob Tanimura, a former Marine, had shown up on Charlotte's doorstep a few weeks before for a job interview. The new Immortal barely knew what he was, and had no teacher, so Charlotte had not only hired him, but had taken him on as a student. )

'Equivocal Coalescence' (02/05)  
Chapter Notes: First off, some of you may recognize the beginning of this chapter. Last year, I wrote a ficlet, 'Starting Over', that actually takes place between the end of chapter one and the beginning of chapter two. It seemed to make sense to actually make it a part of this story. Second, this section incorporates dialogue from the movie, and I haven't done anything similar since I was writing Forever Knight fic, so I hope this is a successful attempt! And three, thanks for reading!

Chapter Two

San Luis Obispo, California

"Can I come in?"

Methos nodded at his unexpected guest, pulling the door wider, letting Tony Stark into the house. "Charlotte's not here," he began, only to shake his head. "But you know that since she's in L.A. – where you're supposed to be."

"Yeah, I thought we could talk," Tony said as he followed Methos down the hall towards the kitchen.

"Did you now?" He looked at the other man speculatively. "And what exactly do you think we think we should talk about?"

Entering the kitchen, Methos went to the fridge, pulling out two beers, handing one to Tony. )

I'm more than 5000 words into this, so decided to start posting since it's nearing completion. Just not sure how many parts it'll be broken into quite yet - 4, or maybe 5. With Iron Man III fast approaching, I really felt the urge to get this arc wrapped up.

I must have watched the scene in Monaco with Justin Hammer about 15 times to try and get the dialogue right. This is my first attempt writing a story set during a movie, so I hope you enjoy it!

"Well that was an entrance," Charlotte Sparrow observed wryly as she walked towards her friend backstage. Tony Stark had just opened the Stark Expo, and a Disneyesque video of his late father, Howard, had just finished. There were people scurrying to and fro, the area a hive of activity. "Phoenix metaphor? Really?"

He gave her a crooked smile. )

"You've changed," Methos said quietly from behind her.

Charlotte's hand stilled, her eyes capturing his in the mirror of her dressing table. She shook her head ever so slightly, before removing the sapphire and white gold earring from her ear, setting it in a small crystal dish with its mate. "I disagree."
