My post to [ profile] 12daysofxfiles today is up. It's a bunch of Texts From Last Night macros. Twelve of them, in fact. ~~Symbolism.~~

Hopefully LJ is working well enough for you to see them? If not, they'll eventually make it to [ profile] textsfromthebasement.

If you are an X-Files person, you should definitely be watching [ profile] 12daysofxfiles. There is good, serious fic posted. There is me being ridiculous (this may be repeated). Check in with [personal profile] wendelah1 to see if there are more days that need covering. Like the slot on Friday I switched out of...
amalnahurriyeh: Sherlock: Sherlock Holmes, reading and looking surprised. (sherlock reading)

Being as it is Yuletide reveal time, here's my story:

Five Times Maia Duvall Was Actually Glad To Have Been On The Away Mission (2743 words) by amalnahurriyeh
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Redshirts - John Scalzi
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Maia Duvall/Anatoly Kerensky
Characters: Maia Duvall, Andrew Dahl, Hester, Anatoly Kerensky, OFC

Because sometimes it's funny, and sometimes it's beautiful, and sometimes it's not.

It does technically contain spoilers for the book, but if you aren't planning on reading the book it can be read as a stand-alone. I like all of the Redshirts fic on the archive, actually.

And thanks again to [ profile] BowlerHatGirl for my delicious present.


Today was spent, in part, watching the Mummers Parade, because I'm a Philadelphian and I was in Philadelphia, and that's what you do. In any case, while watching it, I was struck by a crackfic bunny, which I posted on Tumblr: essentially, that Mycroft Holmes's distaste for "legwork" comes from that terrible period of time when he was assigned to infiltrate a wench brigade because members of it were involved in idk terrorism or something. But he is a young and quite junior analyst, and has to go where he is told, even if it involves having to drink frankly unpalatable beer and hang out with individuals who believe that English still has a viable plural second person pronoun. ("Youse" is not something he can bring himself to utter, no matter if it strains his membership in the community.) At some point into this tortuous experience Sherlock (then in university, because timelines) shows up to make fun of him, just in time to see the parade, which ends with Mycroft having to beat up the international criminals while wearing his braids and all. When he gets back to England, Sherlock buys him a nice new umbrella for a belated Christmas gift. Mycroft resents this mightily, but takes to bringing it with him everywhere.

Title: Decked
Author: [personal profile] amalnahurriyeh/[ profile] amalnahurriyeh
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: Mad Geniuses and Really Smart Sane People
Author: [personal profile] amalnahurriyeh/[ profile] amalnahurriyeh
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Sherlock/John, intimations of Casey/Monica
Rating: Teen/PG-13 (language, implied sex)
Warnings: None
Angst Level: fluffy as hell
Timeline: Sherlock: Post-Reichenbach. Caseyverse: mostly before the action of Machines of Freedom.

Summary: John and Sherlock spend some time in Stark, Montana, saving the world from aliens. It's mostly not boring.

Author's Note:

Yeah, so, this is a bunch of Sherlock-and-John-go-to-Stark fluff. It's as random as you think it is. Enjoy my crack problem. Thanks to [ profile] maybe_amanda for the beta/cheerleading. You can also read it here on the AO3.

'Oh, weapons, really? ┬áTedious.' )
Shortly after the events of The Reichenbach Fall, Sherlock shows Stark, Montana.

Plot points include:

1) the kidnapping of John by Stark members because Sherlock can't fight aliens without his blogger.
2) "You know that minor British government official you've been tracking, Mulder? His baby brother just showed up." "His brother is dead." "Your pregnant girlfriend cried on my shoulder at your funeral." "Point taken." (You can pick who the interlocutor is in this conversation.)
3) A ninja-off between Casey and Sherlock, just because I can.
amalnahurriyeh: XF: Mulder in Elvis glasses, with text "fierce" (fierce)

The following sentences appeared, verbatim, in a dream I had last night:

He [Mulder] had bee disappointed to learn that Scully was an heiress from Alabama. It's not that having inherited a fortune was a problem. It's just that he wanted her to get her fortune from him.

So, there's a prompt, I guess?
amalnahurriyeh: XF: Dreamwidth Sheep, with alien eyes and little UFO in the background. (alien sheep)

OK, seriously, XF people with Dreamwidth accounts: Philedom Olympics 2011 has started, and there is an intense and highly contested game of hangman going on. Get in on it.
There is something very wrong with me.

Let me also take this opportunity to see if anyone on my flists happens to want to beta Caprica fic? You'd need to be caught up through the end of the series, but the fics will be very short. I gotta turn them around this week, oy.
