It’s not exactly surprising that two hot people have decided to cohabitate. We all know they’ve been having sex. Lot’s of sex. Lot’s of really great and probably very acrobatic sex.”Collapse )

Title: At First, Just A Little
Chapter: 2/8(?)
Pairing: Oliver/Felicity,
Word count: 4786
Rating: PG, rating higher in later chapters
Spoilers: Up to 2x14. But sort of an AUish 2x14.
Disclaimer: Arrow belongs to DC Comics. Birthday Letters belongs to Ted Hughes and whoever published that, I guess.
Summary: Felicity thinks that Oliver thinks she's in love with him. But she's totally not. Also starring Mirakuru.
A/N: So this started as a five times fic and took a turn in the third chapter into being a plotty angst fest dealing with Slade and Mirakuru. I know it's a big shift, but what can I say. It got away from me. This show sort of ate my brain.
Previous Chapters: Chapter 1

In retrospect, maybe she should have expected to walk in and find Sara like that, but the truth was the possibility had never even crossed her mind. It seemed silly now, not to have realized. She’d just always thought Oliver had taken Sara on the yacht as a whim. That who the girl was hadn’t really mattered so long as there was a girl.Collapse )

Title: My, How You’ve Grown
Pairing: Leslie/Ben
Word count: 3799
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None, but it takes place shortly after the Harvest Festival.
Disclaimer: I don’t own any part of Parks and Recreation. Sadface.
Summary: Leslie needs a date to her high school reunion and Ben happens to be available.
A/N: Title blatantly ripped off from 10,000 Maniacs. A big thank you to lunar47 for taking a look at this even though she wasn’t feeling too well. I hope you feel better soon!

This was written for the second round of Hiatus Fest 2011. I used prompt #2: fanfic tropes, so welcome to fake dating and high school reunions! Let’s get this train wreck started!

You have to have a date- and it can’t be Ann! Going with a friend or going stag to this kind of thing is like tattooing a giant LOSER sign across your forehead.Collapse )

Title: The Legend of Stiffy Green
Pairing: Leslie/Ben
Word count: 4060
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None really, but it would take place shortly after ep 3x06, Indianapolis.
Disclaimer: Sadly, I don’t own any part of Parks and Recreation.
Summary: Leslie realizes that Ben hasn't seen the scariest landmark in all of Pawnee.
A/N: Although it's a few hours late, this was written for the first round of Hiatus Fest 2011. I used the third prompt, which asked for Ben to to visit an obscure Pawnee landmark. I have borrowed Stiffy Green from Terre Haute, Indiana, but I've played fast and loose with the poor thing’s actual history. The inscription on the tombstone described in this story is real, but it’s from a cemetery in Virginia. Also, while I’m sure John Heinl was a lovely and accomplished man, he did not invent corn syrup.

A very special thank you to lunar47 for jumping in with a lightening fast beta and for her sweet and encouraging words. Your help was greatly appreciated.

If Leslie had asked him when they had first met to give her a boost over the wrought iron fence of one of Pawnee’s oldest cemeteries, he would have said no. And then he would have fired her. Yet here he was cupping his hands so she could use his body as a makeshift ladder and somehow her job was completely safe.Collapse )

I'm so sorry for the delay. I had wanted to go back and rework the opening of the story but life became hectic so it will remain the way it is for the time being. I want to get this up before the show returns so you should expect the next part this week.

Special thanks to darksylvia for the beta job. She did a ton of work on this a long time ago and never really got a big enough thank you.

Any and all feedback is much appreciated.

She didn't know how she had survived.Collapse )

Has anyone ever written a fic, and I mean a long multi-part fic, where they finally finish it and think they don't really like it?

I've just finished a DW fic and there are parts that are good, but to get to those parts there's a lot of stuff to wade through. There's a lot of set up that I don't think I can cut without making it confusing. There's also very little dialogue, which kind of made me nuts. But people are in different time lines and they just can't talk. Should I scrap it? Should I try to rewrite the whole thing?

My head hurts.

I should just quit whinging and stop tinkering and send it off to be betaed (well that looks completely wrong...beta'd, beta-ed maybe?) so I can find out if it's really that bad.
