Title: First Reckoning
Pairing: Castiel, Mary Winchester
Rating: PG
Words: ~1,300
Summary: In the last fourteen hours, Mary has seen Castiel steal a car, knock a federal agent unconscious, and level an entire warehouse. He stabbed another angel, and he beat a man half to death to get information about Sam. He also rescued Dean from a Men of Letters ambush. He carefully healed Dean's wounds, and he hovered beside Dean's bed until Dean finally drifted off to sleep.
Notes: Inspired by the most recent Season 12 promo. I choose to live in a universe where Dean/Cas is a given; that being said, you won't really find any here without a magnifying glass.

Title: Since 382 BC
Characters: Garrick Ollivander, various
Rating: PG
Words: ~5,400
Summary: A sampling of wands both famous and ordinary, as remembered by a man who has not forgotten a single one.
Notes: I found this in my drafts and realized I'd forgotten about it. I started it right before Deathly Hallows, shelved it in case it got jossed, and then... yeah. 2007 was a long time ago; this probably isn't Pottermore compliant.

Title: Miss Josie's Home for Totally Real Transdimensional Beings
Characters: Old Woman Josie, the angels
Rating: Gen
Words: ~2,400
Summary: The angels left Night Vale just after lunch on June 15, 1942. Josie remembers it like it was yesterday rather than seventy years ago -- of course, today could be seventy years ago rather than yesterday, depending on the current placement of Venus and the type of signals being transmitted from the abandoned gas station.
Notes: Written for [personal profile] juniperphoenix and [personal profile] fandom_stocking 2013.

Title: you haunt me while you live
Characters: Catelyn, Jon
Rating: PG
Words: ~1,100
Summary: She felt a hand at the back of her head, groping fingers that bruised her neck and scalp as they twisted into her hair. No, don't, don't cut my hair. Ned loves my hair. Her head was yanked back, and a dagger was pressed coldly to the soft skin below her jaw, but the bite she expected did not come.
Notes: Written for [personal profile] asoiafkinkmeme and the prompt AU where Jon joins Robb instead of the Watch, and he and Cat survive the Red Wedding.

Title: Wicked Blood
Characters: Rickon
Rating: PG
Words: ~2,100
Summary: Rickon Bloodhands became the villian in someone's story, the nightmare the sparked a thousand myths.
Notes: Inspired by this Wildling!Rickon photoset and the accompanying tags. It's set roughly 150 years in the future, when a Stark child asks for a bedtime story about the War of Five Kings, and about Rickon Bloodhands, the King-Beyond-the-Wall no one ever talks about.

not yet laid to rest
Catelyn, Lysa | gen | ~600 words
Catelyn blinked at him as the words sunk in, felt nothing save the same hollow ache that had chased her since she rose from the freezing currents of the river.

Written for the Multifandom Women Comment Ficathon, and the prompt Catelyn & Lysa - If you have a sister and she dies, do you stop saying you have one? Or are you always a sister, even when the other half of the equation is gone?

in choppy waters
Stannis, Melisandre | gen | 500 words
Years ago, deep water had claimed the lives of his parents as he watched. Now it had robbed him of Davos as well.

Inspired by that glorious photo of Stannis I posted earlier; I'm convinced he looks sad because he misses Davos.

Title: Working Girl (Her Real Business is Secrets)
Character: Miss Scarlet
Rating: PG
Words: ~1,100
Summary: A motor rumbles in the distance, slightly louder than the thunder rolling overhead. She smoothes out the line of her dress, bends over the hood of her car just as a pair of headlights flare through the wet shadows at the end of the road.
Notes: Written for [personal profile] fandom_stocking 2012; originally posted here. Contains vague mentions of prostitution, related to Miss Scarlet's line of work.

Title: Made By Hand
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale
Rating: PG
Words: ~1,900
Summary: Stiles is sweating by the time he finishes sketching out the line, his shirt damp at the collar and clinging to his chest. The sun has shifted; it's high in the sky now, burning warm and bright and bleaching the uncharred wood the color of old bones. He sheds his hoodie, dropping it next to his feet. He takes a deep breath and closes his eyes, then tells himself to believe.
Notes: In which Stiles uses magic to restore the Hale house. Inspired by this gifset on Tumblr. This is either gen fic or pre-slash, it's an eye-of-the-beholder kind of thing.

Rating: PG13
Words: ~3,400
Summary: Years later, men would talk about love and honor, would whisper about Lyanna's beauty in a tone that bordered on awe, but right then, as Ned's shaking fingers closed around his wrist, the long shadows in the hallway twisting over his solemn face, the only thing Robert knew -- the only thing he understood -- was the sudden ache in his chest, the sound of his heart pounding in his ears, the furious and consuming need to see Rhaegar Targaryen's blood on his hands.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08, who wanted to know what Robert was thinking when he started the Rebellion.
