toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Advice for Writers)
My Yuletide present this year was Information Received, a lovely little James Bond office story with Bond and Villiers, courtesy of girl_called_sun. Thank you again for my Yuletide gift.

My own contribution this year was for miss_elizabeth, in the The Mummy film series fandom, and was an afternoon of discoveries (danger, romance, etc) for Evie, Rick and Jonathan, set in the Carnavan's parents' attic back in England:

Past and Future
(The Mummy Series, Teen & Up, Rick/Evelyn, Jonathan)

I was having terrible trouble thinking up a name for the story that wasn't either a. misleading or b. giving the plot away entirely, so I just slapped the moniker "Past and Future" on it. It wasn't until the day after that I realized I'd committed a horrible scribal faux pas; my previous year's Yuletide story was called "Of Events Past and Future"! [blush]

Next year, expect to see a story entitled, "Future".

After a long, long hiatus, another piece of Weiss Kreuz fic.

This was written for [ profile] dhaunea for the Weiss Day Fic Exchange. My prompt was "Schuldig, Farfarello, teammates", and whilst they're obviously good mates by the time of Kapitel, it occurred to me it would be interesting to explore the origins of their friendship, as I couldn't honestly see them hitting it off right off the bat (YMMV of course!). Anyway, hope you enjoy...

Title: Schöne Freundschaft (Beautiful Friendship)
Author: Tosca [ profile] toscas_kiss
Rating: PG-13
Series: A couple of years after Was Sie Benötigen in the Schnapschüsse series.
Prompt: Schuldig, Farfarello. Team mates.
Notes: Pre-Kapitel. *Mental speech in-between asterisks.* German translations can be found at the end.
Thank you's: to [ profile] daegaer and [ profile] ladyganesh, who very kindly betaed this for me. :-)

toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Bond & Villiers)
So after a hiatus of 14 months I am finally writing again.

Here is my first effort, a piece of James Bond fic set pre-"Casino Royale". This was very kindly beta-ed by [ profile] daegaer and [ profile] snowballjane - thanks guys!

This is the first in my set of 'General Cliché' fanfics for [ profile] 10_cliche_fics, where I claimed James Bond/Villiers, M's Chief of Staff/Aide (table here). We never actually learn Villiers's first name and sadly he won't be in any more Bond films (if you think the actor looks familiar, Tobias Menzies also played Brutus in "Rome"), but there will obviously be more Bond/Villiers goodness from me however, so I guess I'll eventually have to decide on one for him.

Anyway, on with the fic...

Title: Sexbomb
Author: Tosca ([ profile] toscas_kiss)
Rating: PG
Prompt: What goes around comes around

toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Bond & Villiers)
After talking with [ profile] daegaer about our respective writer's block (by which I mean she wrote quite a bit of fun stuff in 2007 and I wrote zippedy-doodar, fun or otherwise), I have decided to make an effort to write this year. I already have a claim on [ profile] fanfic100 for Brad Crawford/Schuldig of Weiß Kreuz which has been going very, very poorly. I'm going to try and wade through some more of it and have enrolled in [ profile] weissday, so that's a start.

I'm also making a claim in the much smaller [ profile] 10_cliche_fics and trying out a new fandom - James Bond. And what's more, James Bond with Villiers, M's Chief of Staff (the same actor also played Brutus in Rome). Yes, as rare as blue steak, but it should be fun I think (and hopefully someone will actually want to read it). I'm going for the Table 3: Generic Clichés option:

The darkest hour is just before the dawnWhat doesn't kill you, makes you strongerNo time like the present
. . .
Every rose has its thornBetter late than neverWhat goes around comes around
. . .
All's fair in love and warAll's well that ends wellNever judge a book by its cover
. . .
Time heals all wounds

toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Takaba and Asami coming up roses)
I just realised I completely forgot to post my [ profile] yuletide story! So here it is. Written for Icey, it's Viewfinder (aka Finder no Hyouteki), and an NC-17 Asami/Takaba PWP.

Title: Onsen
Summary: Takaba wins a free weekend at an exclusive hot spring hotel (onsen) - or does he?
Warning! Rough sex, of slightly dubious consent (though to be honest, I'm not sure you need to warn people of that if it's Viewfinder - it kinda goes without saying!).
ETA: Plus many many thanks to [ profile] daegaer and [ profile] louiselux for beta-ing an unknown fandom! Any mistakes left are mine.

toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Simon Blue)
Hey, I wrote Firefly fic! Because basically - Simon/Kaylee? Like watching a trainwreck in the making.
This is a bit different to what I usually write though - no action in it, just Mal musing on Simon and Kaylee, post-Serenity (so if you haven't seen that be warned this contains spoilers).

Title: Sufficient Unto the Day
Characters: Simon/Kaylee, Mal/Simon UST, Jayne/Simon UST
Spoilers: post-"Serenity"
Rating: PG
Words: 775
Tian - god, heaven
fong-luh – lunatic, crazy
meimei - sister
tzang-huo - filthy bastard

Mal wondered if the boy even knew he was sly. )

Written for the [ profile] wk_100 Retropspective Challenge. This is #24 'Characters' Children' and is a continuance of my Home to meet the Family series: I Schuldig (Reclaiming), II Farfarello, III Nagi, IV Crawford. Because there's never enough Sakura torture. . .


Ran stopped in shock, thinking it was Aya sitting at the table. But he couldn't remember ever seeing his sister that expensively dressed or coiffed, and, as much as he loved her, Ran had to admit Aya was never so elegant, never so polished. Recognition flooded the face uplifted to his and he realised her identity.


She sat mute, gaze darting past him and a kind of dread welling in her eyes. He registered a presence behind him, heard a boy’s voice saying,

“Okaasan, who’s this?”

Turned to see his sister’s face matched with flame-red hair and a smirk.

Summary: Why do you think Esset never infiltrated China?
Author's Notes: Fic request written for [ profile] immortalstar for my White Rabbit Meme. Another failed drabble! Over 1500 words this time. :-P The request was Weiss Kreuz and a Wildcard, for which I chose 'Pet Shop of Horrors'.

With a tinkle of little brass chimes, the door shut on the sunshine and cacophony of Chinatown.  )

For the [ profile] wk_100 'Secrets and Lies' challenge:

Hidden treasure

"Tell us! Where is it?" Ken's captor twists his arm further up behind his back, weight crushing Ken into the carpet, rough fibres rugburning his face.

Ken desperately wills Aya to return, right now. He’s relying on him for a rescue.

“We’ve played nice so far,” his captor’s accomplice finally speaks, “You wouldn’t want us to get unpleasant, would you?” The accompanying smile is sweet, insincere and chilling.

“Just tell us where it is.”

Ken breathes in deeply. Strengthens his resolve. He doesn’t care what they do. He isn’t telling Yohji and Omi where his stash of Godiva chocolate is.

Viewfinder drabble for [ profile] vf_scribbles "Going Home" challenge:

Finally Going Home

“So, tomorrow,” Chun muses through a cloud of cigarette smoke, “Finally going home, huh.”

Fei doesn’t dignify the remark with a response, just watches grey tendrils wreath upward across dirt-grimed brick, blocking out his cellmate’s idle chatter about his own plans upon release.

Fei knows where he’s going; that big, white house, empty now for these past two years. No more Father. No more Brother. Just himself, and the echoes of gunshots and madness and betrayal. A new cage, with himself as king spider, spinning alone at the centre of the web.

No, he won’t ever be going home again.

Written for [ profile] hungry_worm for my White Rabbit Fanfic Request Meme. 753 words.

Title: Kitsune
Fandom: Rurouni Kenshin/Weiß Kreuz
Rating: NC-17 for (non-graphic) dubious consent heterosexual sex. Yes, I wrote het! (hahahaha. . . klunk) Oh, plus one swearword.
Disclaimer: Neither of these are mine. No copyright infringements intended.
Characters: Schuldig/?
Notes: AU (obviously!). And I'm not fantastically familiar with Rurouni Kenshin (except for a few episodes and the Saito/Aoshi Saito/Soujirou smut), so please forgive any continuity mistakes.
I originally had the vague idea of writing a Saito meets Schuldig drabble but then this plotbunny hit me over the head with a sakabatou and demanded to be written.
Summary: Schuldig. Late Edo period Japan. Not a good combination.

Kitsune )
toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Gojyo!Lust)
Two for the price of one! A fic that serves as a slightly belated Happy Birthday [ profile] mistressrenet! fic and at the same time fufils her request for my White Rabbit Fanfic Request Meme (another 150 word ficlet that stretched - to 953 words). Unfortunately if you haven't read Saiyuki you won't understand the in-joke.

Title: Woman with Gun
Fandom: Farscape/Saiyuki (honest!)
Rating: PG for bad language (both English and Farscapian) and faint innuendo.
Disclaimer: Neither of these are mine. No copyright infringements intended.
Characters: Aeryn, Gojyo, Hakkai, Hakuryuu, Sanzo, Goku, Chiana, D'Argo, Crichton
Notes: I haven't seen Farscape for a while, so please forgive any OOCness.
Summary: Aeryn doesn't like to rely on the kindness of strangers.

Luring the Human with the badly dyed hair and sleazy grin up to her room had been repellently easy. )
toscas_kiss: Tosca's Kiss Steampunk Kiss (Default)
The morning after Schuldige Vergnügen, which follows on a couple of years after Was Sie benötigen. Schuldig POV:

The morning is too damn bright, I'm too damn sober and my head hurts in more ways than one. Flying is going to be about as much fun as root canal treatment.

Crawford's little pet is sitting perched on the edge of his seat, looking as blank and inoffensive as can be. Now there's another sterling Esset casestudy in totally fucked-up. There has to be a bit more to him than what appears on the surface, or Crawford wouldn't have put anywhere near as much effort into him as he has. I just haven't had the time - or inclination - to work out what it is yet.

Pressing through his outer thoughts reveals relief at leaving Switzerland is only a thin covering for the mass of different emotions at returning to his homeland. They overlay each other like lacquer, leaving his feelings a dense, opaque shininess. I nudge his thoughts towards the more pleasant regions, not through any genuine kindness, but because he's so damn wound up he's setting my teeth on edge.

The fruitcake is standing looking out the departure lounge windows. Just thinking about touching his mind ratchets my headache up a notch. He seems to be ignoring the rest of the world for a spot on the tarmac. Then that one golden eye flicks over to meet mine. The window to his soul may be open, but there's nothing but reflections of an empty mirror-maze showing. Sometimes he makes me want to run screaming. Other times I think he's just the neatest toy in the world.

He flicks his gaze back to what he was watching and says,

"If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it. And this you have the power to revoke at any moment."

What the fuck?

Argh. More cryptic quote bullshit.

Sometime I'd like to hunt down the shrink who thought giving Farfarello access to his classics library was a good idea, and give him a mindfuck all of his own.

I need a drink. Or a cigarette. Or a goddam handgun.
