Title: Clearing the Board (1/2)
Author: MustInvestigate
Disclaimer: I only own action figures
Rating: R for sex and violence
Pairing: F!Courier/Benny
Summary: Sequel to Incoming/Outgoing: Grabbing the King Fink crown of Rat Mountain...for a big-leaguer like Benny, how hard could it be?

part 1 - part 2


His mind isn’t on what he’s doing, despite how dearly he’s paid for it. No, it’s like a naughty dog, always returning to its vomit. )

Title: Laugh, And You Laugh Alone

Rating: NC-17
Character(s)/Pairing: Laurie/Jon
Summary: No one will hire the Silk Spectre, not even the cops, not even a government happy to pay scum like the Comedian. Jon doesn’t need my company, not really. I’ve got more designer jeans than Brooke Shields, and nowhere to wear them, and nobody needs me, and I’m bored out of my mind.
Notes: An odd little what-if vignette, probably initially inspired by the excellent crossdressing!Laurie kinkmeme fills oh so long ago.


Laurie’s life has been a little too easy since she had a chat with Dan about temporal causality. )

Title: Imposition (4/?)
Sequel to: Compromise
Author: MustInvestigate
Disclaimer: I only own action figures
Rating: PG
Character(s)/Pairing: none in this section
Note:
Part 4 isn’t so much a continuation of the story as so much as penance for that cliffhanger. This story fell victim to a lack of forward planning, or too much, or just a long stretch of the mean blues that made writing little more than something else to stab at myself for not doing well. And that wasn’t wrong, really; self-indulgence and hesitance had grown into laziness and nervously aping clichéd styles, specific areas I’ve worked on and hopefully improved.

Worse, I crammed in too many half-baked concepts, many of which I’ve cannibalised into other fics since. The whole thing really needs torn back to the foundations and rebuilt in the personal voice I’m still developing before I can add another floor to it, which might actually be a useful learning process. In the meantime, here’s a bit of emotional resolution, amply displaying those bad habits, that at least answers “what the hell happened next?”

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

Sequel to Compromise.

Dan had first realised he was developing what his partner would call unnatural affections when he first offered, then insisted, Rorschach learn how to fly his pride and joy. )

Rating: NC-17 for sax and violins; violence only, for once
Pairing: Courier/war OTP!
Summary: Sequel to Incoming, because a lovely kinkmeme anon wanted an ass-kicking pregnant courier, and I had one lying around.

Disclaimer: I only own action figures
Rating: NC-17 for sax and violins
Pairing: Fallout New Vegas, F!Courier/Benny
Summary: Post-apocalyptia really needs to rediscover latex.
Note: This is the kinkmeme’s fault. And it’s really, really awful. I’ve re-written the worst parts and added a proper ending, but it’s still pretty bad (and consider the other crap I’ve proudly posted before you click on the cut!). Still, I wanted to do right by it, because it broke me out of a dry spell just by being stream-of-consciousness fun. So…*shrug*


Raul had told her about Caesar’s personal guards, a brace of hulking veterans with the depthless doll’s eyes of true fanatics. )

Of all the places the courier had dragged him through, Arcade thought this – lurking outside a toilet stall, fending off paint-peeling glares of the be-skirted ferals the Tops considered “classy lady-types” – was easily the most uncomfortable. )

Warning(s): advanced geekery, WIP
Summary: Rorschach unwittingly enters the Fallout universe. Probably won't make much sense unless you've played at least the main storyline. Possibly not even then.
Note: Set in 1976. Thanks to Doctor Manhattan's random technological phlebotinum, gaming technology leapt directly from 1972's Pong to...this, why not.
