'Rainbow Connection' (01/01)  
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

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


Fandoms: Highlander/Avengers/Marvel Movieverse
Rating: PG
Warnings/Notes: Complete, gen friendship, humour, Hulk POV. Also on AO3.
Character(s): Hulk, Bruce Banner, Methos, Original Character.
Summary: Hulk likes tickles, and rain in the sunshine. Lightening is good too.


~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. )

If I Never Knew You

"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."

He stepped closer, his hand reaching out, laying the palm against the curve of her throat. )

'Til These Memories Are Pearls

"Tony," a hitch of fear caught at her voice. "Has something happened? Pepper—"

Coming home to find Tony sitting in her kitchen, drinking her whisky, was not what she'd expected when she walked in to preheat the oven for supper. What was wrong? )

2012 Fic In Review  
I'm never sure what I wrote, till I go back and look. No question though, that my biggest accomplishment this year was finishing my revisionist fairytale White As Snow, Red As Blood, a spin on Snow White, featuring Loki, Methos, Duncan, and Clint, amongst others. I was very please with it, once it was all done, and I learned that if you write a story with Loki in it, the readers will come. Popular fellow he is!

Other that that one epic, looking back at AO3, it seems I mostly wrote a series of Avengers related ficlets, starting with Methos and Tony Stark burying the hatchet in Starting Over. I even wrote a little James Bond as a side-dish. The two exceptions were A Friend's Remains, a story written for Highlander's 20th anniversary, and The Memories of Stones and Stars, the last thing I wrote this year, again, a story written for a Highlander event. Both feature a bereft Methos ;) I put the poor guy through the wringer this year! Started out with him being tortured by Loki and it was just downhill from there.

Them's the highlights, the detailed list below.... )

What's A Little Recon Amongst Friends?

"Have you lost your God damned mind?" Nick Fury demanded, looking down at the woman sitting on a piece of broken sea wall.

Charlotte glanced up at the incensed SHIELD director. "It's a possibility, considering."

The man sitting next to her leaned closer. )

'When the Sky Falls' (01/01)  
When I said I'd love to read an Avengers/James Bond fic, and I listened to the new Adele song for Skyfall, this idea sauntered into my brain, and I went with it. I've never written James Bond before, so no idea how successful this attempt is. But I can always hope :D

When the Sky Falls

The air was full of ash and dust, the broken building she was crawling out of coated in it, like her lungs. "Consultant," she muttered to herself in between coughs. Consultants weren’t supposed to be in the middle of alien 'incidents' – she was sure that was in her contract. )

'Project Tortuga' (01/01)  
I've never written Bruce Banner before....

Fandoms: Marvel Movies, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk,with references to the Highlander concept of Immortality.
Rating: PG
Warnings/Notes: Complete, friendship, post Avengers. The fifth installment in the 'Small Moments' serial.
Character(s): Tony Stark, Bruce Banner
Summary: Tony attempts to build a foundation of trust between two friends.

Project Tortuga

"A cocktail party? Really, Tony?" Bruce Banner pushed his glasses farther up his nose, giving Tony Stark an unbelieving look.

"Not a cocktail party, I told you," Tony objected. "Just drinks with friends. She may have agreed to your participation in our little project, but I want Birdie to get to know you. It's important; she has enough to be afraid of."

Tony had shown up in the lab space he had given Bruce in Stark Tower a short while earlier to go over ideas for what Tony was calling 'Project Tortuga'. Not that Bruce had any idea exactly why he'd named it that. He was beginning to chalk up such mysteries as 'it's just Tony', even though he'd known the man less than a month. )

Warnings/Notes: Complete, friendship, post Avengers. The third installment in the 'Small Moments' serial.
Character(s): Natasha Romanoff, Charlotte Sparrow
Summary: Tasha knows it really is darkest before the dawn.

Still What We Are

A knock at the door, soft, suiting the dark hours of the predawn. She has no idea of whom it might be, only who it isn't. Tony doesn’t knock, well not usually. Besides, he had already dropped by earlier in the day. Pulling open the door, her eyes widen a bit in surprise, having heard her late night visitor was taking a leave of absence. One, that Charlotte had assumed, would take her far from Manhattan, and not alone, at least for a while. )

'White As Snow, Red As Blood' (11/11)  
It's done! This last bit is a lot longer than anticipated, but that's Phil's fault - he insisted on one last scene of his own. Thank you for reading, and if you've been holding off on commenting till it's done, now's your chance :D Don't be shy! Help me deal with the 'post finish of a long story' letdown.

Fandoms: Avengers/Marvel Movies, Highlander
Rating: PG13
Warnings/Notes: Crossover/AU. Methos/OC, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov implied, Methos & Duncan. This is set before The Avengers, and contains no spoilers for the movie. I can't quite remember what had me interested in researching Snow White, but I did, and came to discover that many cultures have a similar story, and that immediately bred a plot bunny. This is my take on the Snow White folktale with a Loki spin - is he Prince Charming, the Wicked Queen...or both? I'm using what happened in the tag of Thor for my jumping off point - Loki has spent some time spying on various SHIELD members, coming across some useful nuggets of intel to use against our heroes.
Character(s): Methos, Loki, Duncan MacLeod, Clint Barton, Nick Fury, Phil Coulson, Natasha Romanov, Original Characters.
Summary: Methos doesn't believe in fairy tales – or gods.
