Summary:

They were on the street when the voice came through comms. It went to all of them. They could all hear.

“Steve,” said the voice.

Clint stopped, turning to Rogers and Wilson at the sound of the unfamiliar voice. Rogers raised his hand up to his helmet and looked at the surrounding buildings, turning in a circle. “Bucky?” he asked. “Is that--Where are you?”

“Steve,” said the voice again, and Clint now knew it belonged to James Barnes. “It’s an ambush, Steve. Get the hell out of there.”

hafital: (HL - Quickening)
It comes to my attention that for those of us in fandom, January 1st is so much more than just the first day of the new year. *g*

~~~

I did not play in the Yuletide pond this year. When signups where happening, things were looking to be extra-complicated with my family, but then it all calmed down. By then the deadline had passed. Oh well!

But I did write for the [community profile] hlh_shortcuts fest. Whee!

As a gift, I received a wonderful story written by [personal profile] pat_t -- Love and Beyond. I loved this story, that truly shows the strength of friendship between Duncan and Methos.

For my story, I wrote

About Today
Highlander, D/M (ish)
about 3700 words
all audiences

for [personal profile] tryfanstone!

hafital: (HL - Duncan rooftop)
Gah. Since when has LJ put a word limit on posts! :(

New story, written for the [livejournal.com profile] hl_chronicles challenge.

One Common Wire, One Silver Thread
by hafital

Highlander, Duncan/Methos, mature
~11,700 words

Summary: Somewhere along the way, it became less about staying one step ahead of the hunters, and more about living, about choosing your weapon and choosing your ground.

Sequel to Missed Connections. Written for the HL_Chronicles Timestamp Challenge (20 years). Duncan and Methos's lives after going to live on the de Valincourts' island in the Caribbean.

This story begins a year or so after the end of Missed Connections, which was written to be contemporaneous with our own time (i.e. 2009), and ends 20 years later. It uses the final part of Missed Connections as a lead in.

Available on DW | AO3 | HL Fiction

Yay, new story. Written for the [profile] dw_femslash ficathon. :)

The Dating Lives of Aliens
The Sarah Jane Adventures, Sarah Jane Smith / Maria Jackson (older), non-explicit
+3,300 words

Summary: Laughing, Maria fell into Sarah Jane's arm. "It's good to see you! What are you doing here? Are you checking up on me?

Notes: for [profile] kwanboa in the 2011 DW Femslash Ficathon, who wanted FLUFF. Well, this is certainly silly, if nothing else. Thank you to [personal profile] dragonfly (on DW) for the last minute, super fast beta! Link takes you to the LJ community.

In retrospect, the perfectly manicured fingernails of mesmerising fuchsia should have been a sign, but, honestly, how was Maria to know? It's not like one should expect aliens to enroll in physics.

The Highlander Holiday Shortcuts reveal was yesterday! Every year since it started, the [community profile] hlh_shortcuts fest has been a real highlight of the holiday season for me, and this year was no exception.

As a gift, the wonderful [personal profile] merriman wrote a HL/Ocean's 11 crossover story entitled Fencing for me! Do you have any idea how long I have wanted a HL/Ocean's 11 crossover???? Well, you can safely assume it's been since two seconds after watching Ocean's 11 the first time. hah.

And so now I can talk a little bit about my story that I wrote for the ever generous and amazing [personal profile] unovis.

Domaine du Meilleur Bien-Aimé
for Unovis
Duncan/Methos, various OCs

No doubt Methos took great delight in making MacLeod tramp all over eastern France with nothing more than a rambling note and the vague directions given by a barefoot child, but there could be no question that in the end MacLeod would find him.

It'll be up at the HL Archive in uno momento. And done.

But, first, let's talk about DONKEYS )

Honestly, I had no idea where the donkeys came from. I had not set out to write donkeys. NO REALLY. But Lucy knew better. Clearly. Perhaps the blame falls to Mrs Augusta Elton:

"I wish we had a donkey. The thing would be for us all to come on donkeys, Jane, Miss Bates, and me and my caro sposo walking by. I really must talk to him about purchasing a donkey. In a country life I conceive it to be a sort of necessary; for, let a woman have ever so many resources, it is not possible for her to be always shut up at home;and very long walks, you knowin summer there is dust, and in winter there is dirt."

"You will not find either, between Donwell and Highbury. Donwell Lane is never dusty, and now it is perfectly dry. Come on a donkey, however, if you prefer it. You can borrow Mrs. Cole's. I would wish every thing to be as much to your taste as possible."
-- Emma, Jane Austen.

Yay the Yuletide Archive is LIVE!

This year I received another lovely Ozma/Dorothy story. The Royal Wedding of Oz, which is delightful and sweet and everything I could want, except that I want MORE. lol. But I always want more Oz, and more Ozma and Dorothy. I am like the Hungry Tiger in that way.

And that's all of Yuletide that I've read so far. There is so much to read! *big eyes*

~~~

I'm in Mexico right now, with my parents at their house, under a pile of blankets because central heating is apparently too modern an invention. But their house is large and freshly painted, so that's good. And has internet, which is really the important thing. :D The town is, well, a town, and in this part of Mexico (Baja California) everything is rather 3rd world meets Walmart and Costco, but yesterday we drove out into the country side a little bit and it's truly beautiful and stunning out here, once you get away from the towns. The drive down from LA is lovely, too, with the ocean right there. I love the ocean.

Last night my mom and I visited some of her neighbors who, um, party. LOL. They had a Karaoke machine and were singing, loudly, ranchero songs. Honestly it was like being at the barn because the grooms all play ranchero music ALL THE TIME. But they were so nice! My parents have really nice, friendly, generous neighbors. The kids won't stop playing with fireworks, though, and that's kind of annoying. It's going to be LOUD on New Years and I'm so glad I'm going to miss it. lol.

Yay I had a lovely New Year's Eve celebration with [livejournal.com profile] astolat. In conclusion, Adam Lambert is adorable, but many of us knew that already. He's fun. He can stay. *g*

~~~

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide 2009 reveal!

Life was such that I could only write the one main story this year. This was the first time I didn't do a pinch hit or an extra story as a gift and I was a bit sad about that, but there was literally no way I could do another story, although I thought about it. Anyhoo, my story:


Shades of Mars
24, Jack/Tony, Adult, +4,500 words.
Written for [livejournal.com profile] savageseraph
With a big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] kadymae for the last minute beta.
Spoilers for Day 7 and Day 3; No spoilers for the upcoming season.

Yay! Authors have been revealed for the [livejournal.com profile] hlh_shortcuts and so now I can jump up and down and point people to my story.

This was a first for me, for many reasons -- first crossover, first non-D/M (except for the wee little Duncan/May-Ling I wrote years ago)(although I kind of cheated because it's heavy on the Duncan & Methos friendship), first time writing Amanda for longer than a cameo. It was a lot of fun, and also difficult. *g*

The Manuscript
Highlander/Dresden Files
Methos, Amanda, Harry Dresden, Bob, Duncan MacLeod, OCs
Genish Pre-slash or Slashy Gen (Methos/Harry)
13200+ words

The Manuscript (link goes to community, posted in 2 parts, all parts linked). Or you can read it on the HL Archive here.

Anyone know of good Dresden Files communities for posting?

Quick notes for anyone interested: )

Summary: Noise swelled around him, but MacLeod only heard the pounding of his feet against the pavement and his rhythmic breathing loud in his ears. The crowds were a blur, a mosaic of scattered dim lights and movement barely registered, serving only to slow him down like a thousand hands reaching out to grab hold as he struggled to get free.
