"We're A Storm In Somebody Else's Teacup" {1/?}, Merlin, Merlin/Arthur

Title: We’re A Storm In Somebody Else’s Teacup {1/?}
Fandom: Merlin {Modern!AU}
Pairing: Eventual Arthur/Merlin {slight Merlin/Will, Arthur/Lancelot}
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6100
Genre: Slash
Summary: In which Gwen’s passive-aggressive revenge leads to, amongst other things, Merlin making a new friend.
Author’s Notes: I have included way too many pop culture references. Writing this series surprised me because a plot appeared. It was terribly distressing; I was just going to have everyone flouncing about going heh, we have superpowers, but in the later chapters there’s murder and Evil Plotting and everything. I was most surprised, though I guess that’s what comes from having a job where I shelve books for hours at a time, which leaves me in my own head a lot of the time – possibly part of the reason I ended up on antidepressants over the summer – and means I get lots of time to plan things.

"Clinging To The Wreckage Until I Got The Message", Torchwood, Owen/Ianto

Title: Clinging To The Wreckage Until I Got The Message
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Owen/Ianto
Rating: PG-15
Word Count: 9350
Genre: Slash
Copyright: Title is from Again And Again by Keane.
Summary: “You need something other than this in your life, Owen,” Ianto murmurs.
Author’s Notes: Because I’ve always felt that the greenhouse was something Ianto and Owen could have created together, and I enjoyed trying to create the transition between OMG you fucking shot me teaboy and hey, we kind of get on now. There’s a wonderful bitterness in writing the season one boys.
