'Circumstances' (01/01)  
Summary: When Tony Stark's involved, there are always circumstances.

Notes: This is a gift fic for Strangevisitor7, who has had a crappy last few months, and had an even worse Friday.

It's a One Shot, an AU of an AU (of an AU?) (Is there such a thing?) and it exists in its own time-stream. It is not a part of any of my current series that you may or may not be familiar with—[points up] AU of AU (of an AU), right? It only exists to—hopefully—bring a smile to its recipient's face.

'And My Heart Was Colder When You’d Gone' (01/01)  
Fandoms: Magnificent Seven
Rating: PG15
Warnings/Notes: Complete, het, unabashedly romantic - you have been warned. This directly follows Too Young For Heaven. Title from the song 'Whispers In the Dark' by Mumford & Sons.
Character(s): Chris Larabee/Original Female Character
Summary: Chris is ready to put the past behind him, but is Charlotte willing to step into the future with him?


And My Heart Was Colder When You’d Gone

Charlotte slid off her horse and into his arms. For a moment, he held her there against his bare chest, looking down into her eyes. Then he smiled, still not saying a word, as he dropped his arms, releasing her. She stepped back, holding the gaze, with a smile of her own. )

Too Young For Heaven ~ Part Four

The clock in the hall struck four as Chris made his way quietly through the sleeping house. He could hear the wind wailing outside, and the scratch of tree branches against the plastered walls of the hacienda. It was the third night since Ezra had left, and while Chris was feeling much stronger, he still tired easily. Charlotte had allowed him a beer with dinner, and afterwards, he'd settled into the rocking chair in the parlour. He must have fallen asleep not long after. He'd woken up a few minutes before, finding himself covered with a blanket. Not feeling like going back to sleep straightaway, he'd decided to find a book to read from the library in Charlotte's study. )

Too Young For Heaven ~ Part Three

Chris sat under the apple tree in the back garden, wrapped in a blanket, his feet propped up on a box with a cushion. The late afternoon sun had warmed him and he’d drifted to sleep not long after Ezra and Timothy, Charlotte’s oldest boy, had settled him there. This despite the nap Charlotte had insisted he take after he’d sat in the parlour, listening to Penny play the piano for an hour. Now he half dozed, watching Charlotte, who’d come out to join him a short time ago. Her lap was covered in lace, her head bent in deep concentration as she placed fine stitches across the fabric that would be Jemma’s bridal veil. Her oldest child’s wedding was in less than two weeks, and every time Charlotte was sitting, she was working on some sort of wedding finery. )

Too Young For Heaven ~ Part Two

“Nathan, I really must insist that you calm yourself!” Charlotte scolded gently as the healer yet again fussed at Vin to let him up off the bed.

“Honest, I could do them stitches,” Nathan protested.

They were in Nathan’s clinic; Charlotte preparing to restitch Chris’s bullet wound. Due to the cramped quarters, Buck, Josiah, and JD had left, leaving Vin and Ezra to assist Charlotte. Chris had blacked out at some point on the journey up to the clinic, which left Nathan the only conscious patient. The healer had been agitated since they’d brought Chris in, and Vin had done his best to calm their unwilling patient; but to no avail.

“Maybe we should brew one of yer fine healin’ teas there, Nathan. Sure it would make ya feel a whole lot better.” There was a bit of an evil gleam in Vin’s eyes.

Ezra chuckled and even Charlotte’s lips twitched at the rather vengeful tone underlying the sharpshooter’s words. )

'Too Young For Heaven' (01/04)  
The beginning of this story may be familiar to some of you. I started posting this in 2009, and never finished it. I would add little bits here and there, but never really sat down to finish. Well, this weekend I did. The beginning has been rewritten somewhat, to better fit in with stories written since, so I'm starting fresh. Sorry you had to wait so long for me to complete this, [livejournal.com profile] grachonok.

Fandoms: Magnificent Seven, Highlander
Rating: PG15
Warnings/Notes: Complete, gen developing into het. This picks up after the final M7 episode, Obsession, and the Highlander episode, Comes a Horseman. This story has the concept of Highlander Immortality, no Highlander characters appear, but are mentioned. It is set after the flashbacks in my story, I Am Going To the West. The title is from the song ‘Where Shall I Go? (A Cowboy's Hard Times)’. You can find the lyrics here.
Character(s): Ezra Standish, Chris Larabee, Vin Tanner, Buck Wilmington, Josiah Sanchez, Nathan Jackson, JD Dunne, Original Characters.
Summary: Sometimes, the only way to escape the dark, and the demons that haunt you, is to have friends who refuse to let you fall.

===========-------------------===========


Too Young For Heaven

New Mexico Territory, Summer, 1867

“If you want me to come, then of course I shall. But I think you overestimate any influence I might have with Chris.”

“Thank you, Charlotte,” Ezra said. After discussing the situation with Vin and Buck, the three men had decided that Charlotte might be able to reach Chris in that dark place he'd fallen into after his grievous encounter with Ella Gaines. And Ezra privately hoped that it might prove to be a much needed distraction for Charlotte, who seemed to be trapped in a darkness of her own.

She nodded. “Let me change and tell Charles and the children I shall be away for the day.”

Ezra Standish cast a critical eye over his cousin as she threw the last of the feed to the chickens. The morning sun washed over her, giving him a sharp reminder of just how much weight she’d lost in the weeks since Methos had left.  )

Chris pulled her against him, the cool skin of her back pressing into the warmth of his chest. “What is it?” he asked quietly, the dark of the predawn embracing them like a cloak.

'Double, Double Pants and Trouble' (01/01)  
Some friends were trying to cheer me up last night, and one of them said I should write a mystery story called 'Who Stole Vin's Pants?', then another friend chimed in, agreeing, but thinking it should be 'Who Stole Vin and Buck's Pants?'. And damned if I haven't gone and written it. And it isn't a crossover! So this is dedicated to (and blamed on), [livejournal.com profile] panthology and [livejournal.com profile] layla_aaron. I'm more of an angst girl, and it's been a long time since I've tried my hand at humour, so I hope it will bring a smile to your faces.

Rating: PG
Notes: This is pure silliness with no redeeming social value whatsoever. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ninjababe for the title idea, and to her and [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7 for reading it over as it was being written.
Character(s): Ezra Standish, Buck Wilmington, Chris Larabee
Summary: Foul deeds have been perpetrated in Four Corners, and no one's pants are safe!

Double, Double Pants and Trouble


“Pssssst.”

Ezra sank deeper into his chair in front of the jail, the coffee cup at his lips hiding his smile.  )

'Comfort' (01/01)  
This story takes place at the end of [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7's The Tale Is in the Telling, right after Chris leaves the saloon all grumpy. You don’t have to read it for this to make sense, but you should, since it’s an awesome story! When I was reading the first draft of ‘Telling’ I made the offhand comment to Casey that I bet Chris was headed to Charlotte’s for a little comfort and understanding. Well, the road to hell is paved with offhand remarks, and I should know better! Of course, I had to write it.

Hope you enjoy it.

Notes: PG15 for content of a sexual nature, Chris/Charlotte, a story in the 'Echoes the Sea/Aces Immortal' AU series.
Characters: Chris Larabee, Charlotte Sparrow
Summary: Chris's desire for a sympathetic ear doesn't quite turn out as he'd imagined.

===============_______________===============



Comfort

Chris was irritated and on the brink of a really foul mood. He was getting damned tired of his men disrespecting his authority; especially Ezra and Vin. Those two were as thick as thieves these days, always with their heads together, keeping secrets. )

On A Raven's Wing ~ Epilogue


Six Weeks Later

Charlotte stopped at the bottom of the steps leading to her front door. She was home, and home was a very good place to be.

“Ma’am?” Vin asked quietly at her side.

Glancing up at him, she smiled softly. “I am just taking a moment to appreciate what I have.”The glow of lamplight spilled through the windows, tingeing the early dusk outside with warmth and welcome. From somewhere inside, she could hear her childrens’ laughter, and she realized how very much she had missed that sound )

The gray light of dawn was slowly seeping across the horizon as Charlotte rode back to the old barn and her final parting with Ben. They had spent several hours the evening before discussing what Ben wanted Charlotte to do for Alice Evans, each avoiding any talk of their lives or their past together. It was time to let it all go, once and for all.

Arriving at the barn, she found Ben outside, his horse already saddled and ready to go. He helped her dismount, holding her close for just a moment before releasing her and stepping away. )
