karanguni: (RUFUS looks)
The Business of Fear

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (OGC)/Highlander (/Baccano!)
Characters: Rufus, Methos; cameos by Tseng and Luck
Rating: Soft R
Summary: Rufus needs men who are know something of the business of fear.

Notes: Runs in the same line as New Men (Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII), but you don't need to read it to read this! Written for the no_true_pair prompt: Rufus is bound and blinded -- does Methos try to help, or take advantage of the situation?

4952 words and Rufus doing some recruiting!


Hide and seek is something Methos has come to be good at over the years, but he has absolutely no illusions about playing against the Shinra Company. )

So, who's the crazy person who has decided to give as many people on the flist a present as she can? I AM! *BEAMS* In the spirit of the new year and attempting to kick my ass back into action. I've taken what prompts you guys have given me over the last however-many-times-I-decided-to-click-previous-entries, and have spun what I can. Happy new year! ♥ from this side of the universe.

[livejournal.com profile] dnatio_memoriae generously donated her art skillz for a couple of these, and may be contributing more in the morning! IS THE WORLD NOT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE. OH YES, IT IS. ♥

numinicious - Lucifer (Lucifer, postcard) )

dnatio_memoriae: Baccano! (Luck, Claire, writing on the wall) )

white_jenna: Final Fantasy VII (Tseng, cocktail napkin) )

muse_lightning: nasdack FFVII AU (Tseng, Elena, post-its) )

knightlineninja: Cowboy Bebop (Spike, short letter) )

voksen: Baccano! (Czes, longhand letter) )

logistika_nyx: nasdack AU (Elena/Tseng: he's full of wishful thinking) )

misura: nasdack AU (Dark Nation, Rufus) )

If you feel you have been deprived a present, feel free to dump a prompt of any sort on me! After all, Chinese New Year (ha! coming from me, least traditional of people!) lasts a good long while, technically! :D Right now I am going to lean back in my seat and let my eyes explode for a while. ♥
karanguni: (try your LUCK)
This one sort of came for me in part because of Laylah's most amazing fic; this psychotic little offshoot now rests as the second of my weird pan-fandom immortality Triple Bill. \o\

Title: To Come, And Go
Fandom: Baccano!
Characters: Luck/Claire, Claire/Chane, appearances by the rest of the Gandors
Rating: Soft, soft R
Summary: Luck tries something - some things - he shouldn't, in search of something - some things - that he's not sure he should have.

1877 words and weird little family issues.

It makes Luck smile, at least, before the doors close and separate them both. )
karanguni: (LUCIFER morningstar)
Written for kinkfest over at IJ.

Title: I Met A Man (Save Me)
Fandom: American Gods/Baccano!
Rating: PG
Characters: Luck, Taxi Driver Djinn (oh yeah)
Summary: Energy must convert, one form to another, switching to conserve.
Warnings: Uh. AU?! 3am writing?! Dave Matthews rip-off?!

832 words, and it is totally not fun at all being awake at this hour with your head unable to be switched off.

walkin' through the desert I met a man, and he told me 'bout his crazy plan: he'd been walking for twenty days; he was gonna walk on for twenty more. )
karanguni: (GANDOR family)
Title: Some Kinda Monster
Fandom: Baccano!
Rating: Soft R
Pairing: Claire/Luck
Summary: Claire comes home for the first time; Luck sees him bloodied and brilliant, and there's fear in his stomach, and anger.
Warnings: I make up timelines like I make up excuses. :D Written for Kinkfest over at IJ, and I will pretend that it is already the 3rd of July, because if Claire can do it, so can I.

547 words and some serious Brotherly Business.

'Little brother's being rude,' he murmured into Luck's ear. )

[and equal marriage still wants YOU for their fundraising army!]
karanguni: (uh HAWKEYE)
So. I haven't written anything in ages, I have an exam tomorrow, my brains are falling out of my ears, and 0TP on IJ starts up a new week worth of prompts. So I look at the list, and in my caffeine high, it strikes me that no one ever said I couldn't write Epic Poetry (TM) for 0TP, right?

Right. If you're expecting my usual. Um. Well. I apologise sincerely to fans of both Final Fantas VII and Baccano! alike. I tried to think of a good one. This is all my brain gave me. D8

Title: A Tale of Two Turks
Fandom: Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Luck and Tseng
Rating: PG13
Warnings: The prompt was: Tseng and Luck as the main characters in a fairy tale. Crack, anachronisms and rhyming couplets. Think old school Will Smith rap while you read. Yes. Yes.
Summary: Tseng and Luck in a quest for Shinra and the Greater Good.

666 (-111) words and god I am going to hell. I have no excuse, except that maybe I have an exam in 9 hours ahksafjlsf.

[edit] Now with more accurate rhyming metre!

A fairy tale in 15 stanzas. )
karanguni: (JUDGE)
Mmm, ficspam. Working on everything that I'm not meant to be working on, as usual.

[edit] Because I have no willpower whatsoever: Rufus/Tseng porn. Tseng's going to have one hell of a laundry bill.

Personal ref of random blabbery ideas for the prompts I've got left to do \o/ ENGLISH IS NOT A LANGUAGE THAT I CAN SPREAK. Go ahead. Comment. I DARE YOU. )

Also, Iron Man fic rec of major amazingness: The Value of Secrets by Maya Tawi. Jarvis/Tony Stark. You know you want to.

Meanwhile, a FMA/Final Fantasy VII drabble of mine on IJ, linked to avoid 242904 Posts of Death on your flist. Zack and Hawkeye and dogs. Yes, dogs.

And then the real post:

Title: When The World Ends
Fandom: Baccano!/Ocean's 11
Characters: Claire; Rusty, Luck, Danny and Linus cameos
Rating: PG
Warnings: Crossover written for the No True Pair challenge over at IJ; prompt being: Rusty and Claire: it's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. Genfic is the way to go, because I fail at plot and all that other cool stuff. D:
Summary: Playing poker until Armageddon.

2192 words and the epic failure of plot!sense. \o/

Time for an old man to get to bed. )
karanguni: (RENO turns)
So, I try to write a PWP for my no_true_pair prompt (Luck/Rufus/____) over at IJ, and what do I get? Character plot! \o/ *cuddles the evil spawn fic nonetheless* Fear not the AU; you need to know very little about Baccano!, truth be told. It's like one gigantic outside-looking-in thing on Tseng (and Rufus). Plus one to my attempts at turning everyone into a Turk!

Title: New Men
Fandom: Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII
Pairing: Luck/Tseng/Rufus
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Uh, AU? Sex? Luck as a Turk? 8D
Summary: It's a new age when men are unafraid of being exactly what they are; Luck envies them enough to put on the suit and call himself Shinra. (2822 words.)

2822 words and lots of crossover goodness. You barely even need to know Luck!

Luck knows he's already waited more than enough lifetimes to be what they are. )
karanguni: (try your LUCK)
Title: Growing Up Is Still The Most Fun That You Will Ever Have
Rating: G
Characters: Claire, Luck, Keith, Berga
Summary: Because Claire had to have grown up into the balanced individual he later became somehow. Everything he learnt, he learnt from his brothers.
Warnings: Mmm, invented backstory, ho.

2154 words of crazy almost-not-quite mafia-family fluff with a pretentious title to boot!

'You know, your dad is really weird,' Claire said; it was one of the first things that the angry-looking redhead kid said to Luck. )
karanguni: (try your LUCK)
This thing is a monster. Hugely speculative Gandor family fiction, go! I'm going to go pass out now.

Title: Family Rites
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Gandor family and associates; vague Luck/Claire/(Chane).
Summary: Growing up as a Gandor and growing old as a Gandor: Keith tries marriage, Luck tries ambition, Berga tries uncledom, Claire tries everyone else.
Warnings: Liberties taken with Keith's wife and family; liberties taken probably with everything. 8D

6,405 words and a lot of family politics.

How it began was really very simple: just another one of the family's slightly dysfunctional relationships. )
karanguni: (Bebop SMOKING)
Baccano! made me explode, so I wrote small things and and and oh god I signed up for no_true_pair at IJ on top of all the other challenges; what am I doing; somebody kick me in the head, please.

FRIENDS LIST. GO WATCH BACCANO! It has Mafia men! It has New York and Chicago from the 1930s! It has immortals! It has sexy suits and ties! And hats! It has Koyasu Takehito!

Drabbles:

Draw up a seat, and deal yourself in. A game with the Gandors. 166 words.

Cards with the Gandors )

New-found immortality has its perks. Claire finds Luck changed, but not necessarily in a bad way. 261 words.

Claire visits home. )

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
