From the appalled shock on Chekov's face, one would think he had been ordered to the brig for interrogation instead of merely to sickbay. )

Holiday Drabbly Bits are here! I hope so much that you enjoy them all! There are 19 this year. I'll try to post daily and will post a reply comment to your original prompt to notify you.

Fun statistics! )

And for our first drabbly bit of the year, I give you:

Title: Finding Crookshanks
Author: [livejournal.com profile] katmarajade
Written for: [livejournal.com profile] wwmrsweasleydo
Pairing: Ron/Harry (more bromance actually, but you can easily view through slashy-colored lenses)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 926
Prompt: the scene: gray skies, rain, dead leaves, not too hot, not too cold
Summary: He's lost so much of his family. He's lost Harry. He's lost Hermione. Crookshanks is the only one who's stayed the same, just as ugly and crochety as before. Ron can't lose him too.
Notes: This is not really at all what you prompted, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. It was inspired by my desperate desire to find my own missing cat, so I had to give it a happy ending and bump it to the front of the queue. This was a pairing I specifically said I wouldn't write, and yet ??? I don't have the faintest idea how Harry wandered in and killed my rare pair only rule with a single look. That's Harry f*%#ing Potter for you. *shakes head in confused wonder*

It's raining and he's outside looking for a cat that he doesn't even really like. )

Title: Better Than Romance
Author: [livejournal.com profile] katmarajade
Prompt: I am always a sucker for Sulu/Chekov. It was my 8th Wedding Anniversary yesterday - what did Sulu & Chekov do for theirs?
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1800
Summary: Sulu wants a romantic night with his husband to celebrate their eighth wedding anniverary. Being captured on an away mission and spending their anniversary in an alien prison is definitely not what he had in mind. But as they reminisce about their time together, he realizes that maybe romance is overrated.
Notes: Written for the Second Annual Sulu-Off for a fantastic prompt by [livejournal.com profile] kittyjimjams. Thanks for the opportunity to write this pairing again, bb!

Sulu had had big plans for their eighth wedding anniversary. Flowers, a fancy non-replicated dinner, romance, sex. It would have been a night to remember. )

I hope that you enjoy this only slightly belated birthday drabbly bit. *shifty eyes* Happy ... Saturday?

Ginny Weasley had dumped him, thrown him over for the sodding Chosen One ... )

Popped out of my non-writing mood to love on my love-of-all-loves, one Hikaru Sulu.

Have you not seen my pimping? Come play with us! It's a little bit slow over there and there must be more Sulu love! *stomps feet in protest* *gazes moonily at Sulu stills*

I managed four fills! Go me! One really lame fanart and over 3k of fic! \o/

Title: How To Save a Life

Character(s): Percy Weasley, Penelope Clearwater
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 9300
Warnings (if any): mildly angsty peril and a fair bit of wackiness
Summary: When George contracts a terrible wizarding illness, Percy vows to do whatever it takes to save his life. He runs into an old friend, and together they travel clear across the world, encountering obstacles both dangerous and ridiculous along the way, to bring home a cure.
Author's/Artist’s Notes (if any): Written for [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen. I had so much fun with Percy throughout this—there's just so much more to him than people seem to think! The prompt of treasure hunting got me started and just snowballed from there. Thank you to my glorious betas, [livejournal.com profile] aigooism (who has an eye for finding all of my typos) and [livejournal.com profile] tree00faery (who never lets me get away with anything)

Title: Born This Way
Author: [livejournal.com profile] katmarajade
Rating: 5 drabbles spanning from PG-R
Written For: Team Gaila's Triathlon entry at [livejournal.com profile] st_respect 's Ship Olympics. These are 5 drabbles  (each around 500 words) that I wrote for an 11-drabble acrostic (BORN THIS WAY)
Pairings: Gaila/Kirk, Gaila/Scotty, Gaila/Cupcake, Gaila/Sulu, Gen: Gaila & her mother
Warnings: Mentions of slavery and other horrible things (nothing graphic), a bit of sex
Notes: If you like this, please check out the entire drabble acrostic (~5k and some just gorgeous writing) plus gorgeous artwork and vids here I just wanted to post my part at my journal for archiving purposes. I kept the cross-stitched letters that we posted it with originally here. They were done by [livejournal.com profile] ladymac111

Gaila/Kirk, PG-13, angsty references to slavery (Orion) and genocide/starvation (Tarsus IV)
The first time that Gaila saw Jim Kirk, he was getting pummeled in a bar fight ... )

Gaila/Scotty, PG-13, post red-alert adrenaline-fueled sexiness
Gaila turned to Scotty, eyes wide and blazing, and yanked him out of his chair. )

Gaila/Cupcake, R, sex, minor angst
Inside his private quarters the Lieutenant Commander known as Cupcake was an entirely different person ... )

Gaila/Sulu, PG, adorably smitten Sulu shows new-to-Earth Gaila San Francisco like only a native could
San Francisco was glorious. She'd been in awe of the colors and smells and just the feel of it since stepping off the transport ship. )

Character piece of young Gaila and her mother while on Orion, based on the lyrics: My mama told me when I was young, we are all born superstars/ she rolled my hair and put my lipstick on in the glass of her beaudoir/ there's nothing wrong with loving who you are, she said, 'cause He made you perfect, babe/ so hold your head up girl and you'll go far, listen to me when I say ..., PG, non-specific mentions of slavery, Gaila's mother encourages her to get away from Orion.

I'm really proud of this piece and of how it really pulled this song-based entry together. /self-pimp
Years ago, on a space station orbiting the planet Orion, a woman brushed her young daughter's long, red curls and wondered, not for the first time, how something so beautiful, so precious could have been created by her. )

Title: A Share of the Love Magic
Author: [livejournal.com profile] katmarajade
Rating: R
Word Count: 3850
Warnings: Ridiculously bad set-ups, young men so hot they may cause a racing pulse, and sexy touching.
Summary: Charlie Weasley thinks he's got love magic and takes it upon himself to help his still-single younger brothers. He's either the absolute worst matchmaker in the world or an absolute genius. (Lee/Harry, George/Stan, George/Lee, Harry/Ron, mentions of Charlie/OFC)
Disclaimers: These gorgeous boys are not mine, not even a little bit, not even at all …
Notes: Written for the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] luvscharlie for [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut. Many thanks to my fantastic trio of betas who helped make this so much better-- [livejournal.com profile] aigooism, [livejournal.com profile] alostcorner, and [livejournal.com profile] kaalee! I couldn't have done it without you.

It all starts when Charlie Weasley sleeps with a Gypsy witch ... )

What to do when the world is crappy and getting you down? Pour yourself a cup of tea and break out the fanfic! I've read some truly amazing stories recently, and there have been so many great female-centric stories. I read a lot of slash, but recently I've really been craving female main characters. Here are a few incredible fics that I rec with a crazy amount of fangirl glee. Go, read, enjoy, and remember just how fucking amazing women are. (A lot of these have been recced recently at [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom or other comms, but I know that not everyone has seen these, so ...)


Five Stories About Gwenog Jones by [livejournal.com profile] snegurochka_lee (PG-13, Gwenog Jones) Gwenog Jones is a Beater, a woman, a Slytherin, and she loves to fly – not necessarily in that order. She's not afraid of very much in this world, because she's never found very much to be afraid of. And yeah, for the record, she could kick your arse. There is nothing about this fic that I didn't love. She's amazing, stubborn, as un-public-relations-friendly as can possibly be, and she's gonna fly ... no matter if there's a war going down, no matter if they say she can't, no matter what. There needs to be more Gwenog fic.

And For Some, Life is Only Ordinary (or, why Petunia chose Vernon) by [livejournal.com profile] luvscharlie (R) (Petunia-centric, contains James/Lily, Sirius/Petunia, and Vernon/Petunia) This story stole my soul and broke my heart into a million pieces. I ached for Petunia, who explains with perfect clarity how it feels to be the plain sister, always dull and overlooked next to beautiful, shining, brilliant, fiery Lily, without ever becoming overly maudlin or self-pitying. It's the matter-of-factness that kills me. Petunia is a character who gets written off so easily and turned into a one-dimensional villain so often. It's understandable, considering what JKR gives us about her, but there has to be more to her. And the little hints that JKR did give us, how Petunia longed to be like Lily-- special, pretty, loved... this Petunia is how I will ALWAYS think of her now. I want to cuddle her and tell her that she is beautiful and special and wonderful and loved. And my heart will ache forever for this character and for every girl and every woman who feels like this. Please read this. It's heartbreaking and beautiful and one of my favorite character pieces I've ever read. i love when authors can take unlikable characters and completely change all my preconceptions about them.

Oral History by [livejournal.com profile] acadine (PG, Padma Patil, could be read as Padma/Cho if you squint a lot) This fic is super old-- like from back when HP fanfic was just emerging. I only just discovered it. Padma is so wonderfully and perfectly Ravenclaw and she grows frustrated with the curriculum at Hogwarts being so white-male-Euro-centric and takes it upon herself to learn about what they aren't teaching her. It's lovely, well-written, insightful, and brings up a lot of great points. And though it's short, there's a lot to it. Definitely worth a read.

Ex Libris by [livejournal.com profile] ldymusyc (G, Irma Pince) One possible explanation, via the Trousers of Time, I assume, for what might have happened to the books at Hogwarts during the year of the Carrows. This is a teeny little fic that is gorgeously written and captures Madam Pince, the librarian of Hogwarts, so perfectly. Even if you have no interest in her whatsoever, take a moment and read this. It's 550 words and every word is beautifully chosen and it's such a fantastic premise. It's a bit of a crossover of sorts, but I'm not at all familiar with the other 'verse and that didn't detract from this fic in the least. Read this: for the under-appreciated Madam Pince, for the gorgeous language, for the brilliant storyline, for the beautiful world-building. Worth every word. Go, go, go!

Margarita: A Story by [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices (PG-13, Rita Skeeter) The story of Rita Skeeter-- where she starts and how she ends up who she is. Delightful-- especially the ending. Again, I love when authors make me like characters that are rather unlikable in canon. Yes, please!


More Important Than the Stars by [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock (PG, Joanna McCoy) Dreading her mother's second marriage, a young Joanna hatches a secret plot to visit her father on the Enterprise. Teenage Joanna is so likable here, which is lovely. She's bright and self-assured and sweetly naive and genuinely enjoyable. I love the stories about her life growing up with her mom and their whimsical girls-only lifestyle and how she reacts to Jocelyn remarrying and the changes it brings. The details about her relationship with her father and the world of the family of Starfleet members are beautifully constructed and kinda broke my heart. Sweet and fun and touching.

Tiny Pushes by [livejournal.com profile] velvetmouse (PG-13, Janice Rand) Being a yeoman often means an awful lot of work without very much respect or appreciation. But sometimes, just sometimes, people surprise you. Five notable events in the life of Janice Rand. I love this look into Janice and the life of a yeoman. Brilliant, inspiring, and made me grin. It's great to see people appreciate the people in the background who make everything happen. Yes, please! Damn, I love Janice.

Title: You Just Have To Believe
Author: [livejournal.com profile] katmarajade
Pairing/s: Zacharias/Luna
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 750
Warnings: none
Summary: Zacharias Smith wasn't quite sure when he and Luna Lovegood became friends. It happened so gradually that he sort of missed it.
Author's notes: Originally written as one of my holiday drabbly bits--  a Christmas gift for the absolutely wonderful [livejournal.com profile] thimble_kiss who prompted this pairing, candlelight.  This is being reposted because LJ ate the original post-- seriously, it just vanished *pop* and I've no idea what happened.  After weeks of no response from the LJ support folks, I think it's safe to say that the original entry and the comments on it are gone forever.  *sigh*  So here's a second chance for you all to love on an adorable little rare pair ficlet.

Zacharias Smith wasn't quite sure when he and Luna Lovegood became friends. It happened so gradually that he sort of missed it. )
