Shipping Meme

I've been pretty quiet on her as of late, so it may surprise some of you to learn that I'm writing fic again. Some of it's been "just for me," and the rest is planning for projects I hope will turn out in the long run. So bear with me, and I may produce.

At the same time, all the fandom thinking as of late made me want to fill out the shipping meme lazaefair posted a few days ago.

Fic: King of Pain (Keith, Veronica) PG-13

Title: “King of Pain”
Author: em2mb
Pairing/Character: Keith, Veronica.
Word Count: 4,165
Rating: PG-13
Summary: He fixes the bathroom door and paints Veronica’s bedroom, but deep down he knows a splash of color can’t mask the grey in their lives. The hero is the one who stays, but sometimes it’s natural to want to run.
Spoilers: Through 1x01, “Pilot.” Takes place pre-series.
Warnings: Discusses the Pomroy party.
Author's Notes: Another fic generated from one of the “pockets of evil” (lazaefair’s terminology, not mine) in my brain. Title from the Police song.

Fic: All the PI’s Men (Logan/Veronica, Ensemble) NC-17 (3/7)

Title: “All the PI’s Men”
Author: em2mb
Pairing/Character: Logan/Veronica, Mac, Keith, Weevil, Wallace, Piz, Sacks.
Word Count: 9,211
Rating: NC-17
Summary: “All... right,” Piz said slowly. He picked up the potato hunk, practically pointing it at her. “But if the next words out of your mouth are an alibi saying Logan was with you, like, with you, just know I’m making you go on my radio show.”
Spoilers: Through 3x20, “The Bitch is Back”
Warnings: Violence, language, sex, character death. Even Cliff McCormick probably wouldn’t defend this one in a court of law.
Disclaimer: Strangely enough, they still don’t belong to me.
Author's Notes: This old thing? *bats eyelashes*

Let's do this thing

Here's the deal. A very, very long time ago, I signed up for a table at 100_situations. At the time, it seemed like a good idea - I would write, and the prompts would provide me with jumping off points.

Of course, then life got in the way and I took a break from fandom. I'm back now, trying to clear old projects off the hard drive, with the better part of 100 stories waiting to be finished. But it's something I want to do, even if one-word isn't quite the jumping off point I hoped it would be.

So here's where you can help. Go, take a look at my table, and pick a word, any word. Anything that's not in plain text (not italics or a hyperlink) is fair game. Leave me a comment with a line, a word of dialogue, a one-sentence prompt, anything that gives me a little more to work with. You can even issue a challenge within a challenge. And I'll start writing them in the order requests are received. You'll get credit for your inspiration and more Logan/Veronica fic to read.

And look for chapter three of All the PI's Men by the end of the week.

Fic: You Don’t Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows (Logan/Veronica, Ensemble) R (1/?)

Title: “You Don’t Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows”
Pairing/Character: Logan/Veronica, Lilly, Duncan, Mac, Wallace, Weevil, Lamb.
Word Count: 3,374
Rating: R
Summary: Berkeley, 1967 – Lilly snorted. “A part of me wants to see Duncan get drafted. I wonder how much Daddy would support this war if his son had to fight it.” It won’t be much longer before Veronica has to choose a side.
Spoilers: Through 1x22, “Leave it to Beaver”
Warnings: Character death, rape, and gratuitous nostalgia for a decade I didn’t live through
Author's Notes: A very long time ago, vm_library hosted a “Different Time and Place” challenge for which I (quite clearly) missed the deadline. But more than a year later, I haven’t managed to shake the idea of Veronica attending UC-Berkeley in the late 1960s. Title cribbed unabashedly from the position paper of everyone’s favorite radical domestic terrorist group, the Weather Underground Organization, which they borrowed from Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” Apologies for any historical inaccuracies. I’ve done my very best. Written in part for 100_situations. Prompt: war.

I feel pretty safe saying these are the BEST cookies you will ever try

Monster Cookies!

3 eggs
1 c brown sugar
1 c white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp corn syrup
1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
2 tsp baking soda
4 1/2 c old-fashioned oats
1 c chocolate chips
1 c mini M&Ms

Cream butters and sugars. Add eggs, vanilla and corn syrup. Beat well. Add peanut butter and baking soda. Gradually stir in oats, chips and M&Ms. Use a plastic mixing spoon, not a spatula - they're prone to breaking!

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 for 8-12 min. Remove to wire rack for cooling. It's better to underbake these cookies. They're also good frozen.

I have no idea how many they make. The dough is incredibly sticky. It will get on your hands. I typically lick it off. I'm okay with consuming lots and lots of raw cookies. Also, it's a HUGE recipe - I typically make 1/3 or 2/3 a batch.

Fic: Stove Top (Logan/Veronica) PG

Title: Stove Top
Author: em2mb
Pairing/Character: Logan/Veronica.
Word Count: 1,000: five snippets, 200 words each.
Rating: PG
Summary: “Southern California is just more… tofurkey, you know?” Five Thanksgivings.
Spoilers: Generally through 3x20, “The Bitch is Back”
Warnings: If you make like Chandler on Turkey Day, avoid the warm fuzzies.
Author's Notes: A day late and a dollar short, that’s me. But I started this one after Grey’s last night, wouldn’t let myself go over 200 words for each Thanksgiving, and still pulled off the bulk of it in three hours. I just didn’t get around to posting. I’m not dead. I’m just in my reporting semester at MU for another three weeks. I don’t own them. Written in part for 100_situations. Prompt #96: Writer’s Choice – Thanksgiving.
