(I know, I never write, I never call. I'm blaming it on a longass semester and the gradual death of my personal laptop, which means all my logged-in-as-Amal internet takes place on my phone. But anyway, I am writing a thing.)

You can also read it on the AO3.

A/N: Written for [twitter.com profile] louisebrealey's birthday. I am kind of ashamed of this fact, but, well. No shame in fandom, and I think we can all agree Loo's a badass. Unbeta'd, because [tumblr.com profile] leighnahurriyeh fell asleep on the couch before I could hand her the computer. Let me know if you see typos, etc.

Returning to type: the title is from Your Bones, by Of Monsters and Men. I included a link in the text to give a visual reference for one of the objects mentioned in the fic.

Author's note:

Title is a misheard lyric from Mountain Sound by Of Monsters and Men. (Warning for Extreme Icelandic Hipsterism in that video.) The actual lyric is "hold your horses now," but I'm sticking to my version, because I like it better. (My son swears it's "hold your horses down," but I'm pretty sure he's wrong, too.)

Thanks to the indefatigable apocryphile/[livejournal.com profile] cityesm for a beta & britpick, as always, and to [archiveofourown.org profile] leigh_nahurriyeh for lending me her Mycroft ~~feels~~ for a few thousand words.

Author's Notes:

Well, what I thought was a one-shot (Cheerful Songs for the Broken-Hearted) has spawned a series. Oops. You might want to go check out the series page on the Archive for the general timeline. However, this can be read as a standalone.

Title from Your Bones by Of Monsters and Men. Thanks to [archiveofourown.org profile] leigh_nahurriyeh for encouragement and [livejournal.com profile] cityesm for beta/britpick.

Disclaimer: Intellectual property is a capitalist fiction designed to oppress the working fic-writer. That said, I don't own them either.

A/N: Written from a prompt by [livejournal.com profile] amyhit, who wanted a fic about John having to cope with Sherlock wearing lipstick. I don't know precisely how I ended up writing ten thousand words for this prompt, but I do know that I enjoyed the process. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cityesm for the beta, Britpick, consultation about varieties of coffee cup lids, and making fun of me on tumblr by tagging this gif set with my name. Thanks also to my flist in general for being very helpful in telling me things about where makeup comes from in the UK, and my wife, [archiveofourown.org profile] leigh_nahurriyeh, for helping me choose the perfect prop for the last scene.

Oh, and, uh, people who are regular readers of my fic? This is, um, the tiniest bit dirtier than I usually write. Just, er, be forewarned.

Fandom: The X-Files (Caseyverse)
Pairing/characters: Scully-Mulder Family Chaos
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Angst Level: None
Summary: Christmas, after the end of the world.

This was originally going to be longer, and include Michelle and Mo ending up at her mom's house and having to explain that they'd been in the bunker, and Isabel ranting about being an atheist who had grown up in the Bible Belt to Jamila when she wondered why she was working on Christmas. But that did not happen, and I wanted to post this on Christmas, so. Enjoy.

Shit, shit, shit. )
Title: By the End of the Day
Author: [personal profile] amalnahurriyeh/[livejournal.com profile] amalnahurriyeh
Fandom: The X-Files
Pairing: Gen; entirely noromo compatible (as much as the series can be)
Rating: Teen (references to sex, adult language)
Warnings: None
Angst Level: references canon angst, does not dwell
Timeline: Pre-series through S9.

Summary: Five times Dana's med school friends helped her out.

Author's Note:

Written for [personal profile] wendelah1's donation to [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid for Hurricane Sandy relief.

The original idea for this was for Scully to have her own "Lone Gunwomen," a group of friends she could turn to for support and ideas just like Mulder has. Originally, it was going to be called "The Lady Pathologists' Poker Club," but I decided it was unlikely that all of Scully's med school friends would choose pathology as a specialization. So, I mixed it up a bit. I hope it still satisfies.

This is pretty dire, Danes. )
Title: Cheerful Songs for the Broken-Hearted
Author: Amal Nahurriyeh ([personal profile] amalnahurriyeh/[livejournal.com profile] amalnahurriyeh)
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Sherlock/John UST
Rating: R (Drugs, violence, depression)
Warnings: Some suicidal ideation and mental illness, canon-typical implied violence to bad guys
Angst Level: turn that fucker up to eleven
Timeline: post-Reichenbach

Author's Notes: thanks to [livejournal.com profile] memories_child for a speedy beta and help with some of the technical stuff.

This is what happens when you don't have enough songs for a fan mix or enough plot for a whole fic. So you get both: five songs, five flash-fics (not drabbles, they're too long), arranged chronologically and alternating POV. I'm embedding a YouTube video of each song in the fic, so you can listen to them as you read, if you want. The title of each section is a song lyric as well.

angst ahoy )

Posted for the queer_fest 2012 Free For All, and for [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love. (I'm efficient and/or lazy.)

Title after Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past; a good explanation here, complete with baking discussion, and the full quote here. Gayest possible literary reference, y/mfy?

Thanks to [personal profile] naraht, [livejournal.com profile] sangria_lila, [livejournal.com profile] cityesm and [livejournal.com profile] maybe_amanda for betas and cheerleading at various points, including some truly excellent Oxford-picking.

Disclaimer: Intellectual property is a capitalist fiction designed to oppress the working fic-writer. That said, I don't own them either.

A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] bluesamutra for the [livejournal.com profile] xf_santa exchange. I hope the schmoop isn't excessive.

Title is a quote from a song referenced below, which I will not name because it is awful and will earworm you. Ha ha ha.

Author's Notes:

Remember how I was writing stories about how Casey came back to the future? This is one of them. However, it's something bigger than that, as well. I should make exceptionally clear that I don't consider this Caseyverse Canon - BTTF 1 is the canon-est one. Insofar as there is canon for a project like this.

Thanks to [personal profile] memories_child for the beta work.

Vaguely a songfic for Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up), by Florence and the Machine. Title, epigraph, etc. Video here. Also owes a debt of tone, if not meaning, to Linda Blair Was Born Innocent, by the Mountain Goats. View it live on YouTube here. I'm happy to upload them if anyone wants them,

There's a joke in here that only makes sense if you've seen this sculpture. This view of it in particular.

Excessively Personal Author's Notes:

I started this story in January, when I wanted to die.

In May, when I was nearly finished it, my father dropped dead of a heart attack.

My father was an amazing man. He was funny, he was the nicest person anybody's ever known, he was passionate and creative and so endlessly loving. He was the parent I try to be.

And I am still the little girl who drew pictures of herself roaring with him in preschool.

I start spinning slipping out of time
Was that the wrong pill to take (raise it up)
You made a deal, and now it seems you have to offer up
But will it ever be enough

Title: Well-Suited
Author: Amal Nahurriyeh ([personal profile] amalnahurriyeh)
Summary: She's lost him somewhere
Pairing: MSR
Rating: R+ (sex described enough to get the idea, not in any graphic detail)
Warnings: None.
Timeline/Spoilers: Between The Truth and IWTB. Compliant with the universe of White Board, not necessarily in the same universe.
Disclaimer: Intellectual property is a capitalist fiction designed to oppress the working fic-writer. That said, I don't own them either.

A/N: Written for [personal profile] wendelah1, for her donation to famine relief in the Horn of Africa. For this prompt at the Uniform/Suit Kinkmeme. This may possibly become just as much a fic about my kink for Scully in suits, but, well. I think I'll be forgiven.

Genre: Crack. Internal AU.
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Warnings: None.
Angst Level: Medium-low.
Universe: Mulder-containing.
Timeline: Takes place in 2035.
Disclaimer: Intellectual property is a capitalist fiction designed to oppress the working fic-writer. That said, I don't own them either.

A/N: This is probably the crackiest of the BTTF scenarios. And I love it, a little. Thanks to [personal profile] memories_child for the beta.

Anybody who thought the last one had echoes of Fringe...well, this one is worse.

'Well, that was interesting.'  )
Title: Merger (Or: How Casey Came Back To The Future, Version 1)
Author: Amal Nahurriyeh ([personal profile] amalnahurriyeh)
Summary: Waking up can be confusing.
Genre: Crack. Internal AU (ish).
Rating: PG-13 (language, behavior unbecoming a woman in her late 20s)

Angst Level: Medium-low.
Universe: Mulder-containing.
Timeline: Takes place in 2035.
Disclaimer: Intellectual property is a capitalist fiction designed to oppress the working fic-writer. That said, I don't own them either.

A/N: I am writing out a series of ways that Casey might have returned after her adventure in Stark. None of them are intended to be precisely accurate representations of what happened--think of them as exploring the possibilities. I will grant, though, that this is the only one that is consistent with the established post-2035 Caseyverse canon, so you're welcome to take it as the canonical one. (Everybody who wants to laugh at me for referring to my crack problem as having a 'canon' is more than welcome to.)

Expect more, of varying levels of seriousness, over the next few weeks.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maybe_amanda for the quick-turnaround beta, and for encouraging the lulz.

Author's Notes: This owes a debt of cheerleading to both [personal profile] wendelah1, for whom the first Gina Van de Kamp story was written, and who encouraged me to finish this and get it posted, and [livejournal.com profile] maybe_amanda, who beta'd both this and the previous story, and nagged me to finish a couple of times.
