03:17 pm - Fic: A Little Out of Reach (TT, H/J)
I finally have a few moments, so here's my latest Take That story.

A Little Out of Reach (3619 words)
Pairing: Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: An unexpected phone makes Howard admit to something he's long hidden. But is it too late?
Notes: Written for the "loss of voice" square on my hc_bingo card, and inspired by my paranoia about Jason seemingly being MIA during the boys' recent recording sessions. Thanks, as always, to my lovely first reader, soundofthesurf, and my fab beta, m. butterfly.

Read on AO3.

11:13 pm - Uh Oh
So one thing that happened at MediaWest this year was a little conversation I had with m. butterfly, one of my best friends, fannish and otherwise. She'd been trying to pimp everyone we talked to into the Spartacus fandom, and was bemoaning the fact that while I'd managed to suck her into a few of my fandoms (Pros and TT chief among them), she'd never successfully managed to get me into any of hers.

As a joke, I said "Well, I could write you a Take That/Spartacus crossover."

Except apparently my muse didn't realize I was joking and immediately started pointing out how awesome Howard would be as a gladiator, and how great a Roman Jason would be, and wouldn't Markie make a cute little slave boy.

Then yesterday I wrote the first scene.

I now have 650 words of TT/Spartacus slash, and need to find time to watch all of Spartacus, and do extra research on Spartacus' rebellion and the era of Roman life in general so I can write the rest of what will no doubt turn out to be another fucking epic.

And if anyone has any brilliant ideas about how I can turn Howard into a Roman gladiator name, I'd appreciate it. (I don't think Howardus is going to cut it. *g*)

07:23 pm - Fic: Dreaming of a White Christmas (TT, H/J, M/R)
My first fic of the year, and it's a month late Christmas story. (The writing went slooowly on this one, and now that it's done I don't want to hold onto it until next year.)

Title: Dreaming of a White Christmas
Pairings: Howard/Jason, Mark/Robbie
Word Count: 7379
Notes: AU. It's a sequel to my Mark and Rob as teenage runaways story, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. I didn't quite mean to whump Mark quite so much in this, but my muse had other plans.

Thanks to my lovely first reader, soundofthesurf, my fab beta, m. butterfly, and my wonderful source of Manchester details, moth2fic.

Also available on AO3.

10:19 pm - Fic: The Other Side (Take That, Mark/Robbie)
Here's the monster trope bingo story. I can honestly say I've never written anything quite like it.

The Other Side (20210 words) by PR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Pairings: Mark/Robbie, and a hint of Howard/Jason
Summary: It would never have happened if Mark hadn't gone to Nigel's party that Friday night.
Notes: Written for the [community profile] trope_bingo challenge. Trope used: genderswap. Thanks, as always, to soundofthesurf for being my lovely first reader, m. butterfly for her usual impeccable edit, and halotolerant for helping make it a better story.

Three stories to go and I'll have a line for bingo. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I suppose, depending on whether you're the reader or the writer) at least one of those stories looks to be another massive, plot-heavy one. I think there will be writing of fun, short smut before I tackle that one.

05:17 am - Fic: Pretty Little Liars (Take That)
I have the honour of posting the first story on the First Annual takethatslash Big Bang challenge. Here it is...

Title: Pretty Little Liars
Artist name: ice_cream_skies
Characters/Pairing: Mark/Robbie, Howard/Jason
Word count: 20,935

Summary: When Mark makes the decision to lie during the filming of For the Record, he's looking to avoid pain, not cause more. But things don't always work out the way you plan, and soon enough his choice is pulling Robbie back to England, and Howard and Jason to the Lake District to help their friend.

Notes: Thanks, as always, to soundofthesurf for being my kind first reader, to saintvic for providing a Lake District consult, to cenea for being an enthusiastic beta, and to m. butterfly for her impeccable editing skills. And massive appreciation to ice_cream_skies for producing such a perfect illustration for the story.

12:40 am - Happy Birthday, halotolerant
Hope you have a wonderful day!

In celebration, and as thanks for dragging me into a fab fandom, I seem to have written you a small Take That fic.

It's a sequel to Some Desperate Glory, since I have noticed that you're a little bit fond of military fic. Plus, Howard started talking to me and would quit until I'd got his story down.

Peace in SleepCollapse )

12:00 am - Fic: Begin (TT, Mark/Jason/Howard

Begin (3353 words) by faviconPR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Pairing: Howard Donald/Jason Orange/Mark Owen

10:41 am - Fic: Between (TT, Mark/Jason)
More Take That fic, one more pairing, and yes, again it falls on the smutty side of things.

Between (2374 words) by faviconPR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Pairing: Jason Orange/Mark Owen
Summary: A few years after the band breaks up, a chance encounter on a train brings Mark and Jason together. A follow up to Believe.
Notes: Inspired by certain comments of lomh. You have only yourself to blame. Thanks to soundofthesurf for assuring me it wasn't crap, and to cenea for finding ways to make it better.

When I started them, I thought both this and Believe were standalones, but it seems they're related. And also, it seems that there's a third story in the works, this time from Mark's POV.

10:47 am - Fic: Believe (TT, Mark/Howard)
Another Take That fic, another pairing. This time it's Mark/Howard, and, I have to say, one of the smuttier stories I've ever written.

Believe (2220 words) by faviconPR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Relationships: Howard Donald/Mark Owen
Summary: As the band is splitting up, Howard tries to comfort Mark.
Notes: Inspired by this picture. Thanks to halotolerant for the helpful beta.

09:58 pm - Fic: Someone to Watch Over You (TT, Howard/Mark/Jason)
Not only have I written more Take That fic, but this time it's an OT3 story. I've put it up on takethatslash here, and AO3:

Someone to Watch Over You (2193 words)
Relationships: Howard Donald/Jason Orange/Mark Owen
Summary: When Mark gets soaked at the Glasgow show, someone has to look after him...</p>
Notes: The first part of this started life as an entry in the takethatslash Progress Live ficathon, but I really wanted to take it to its logical conclusion. (That would be M/J/H smut, in case you were wondering.) Thanks, as always, to soundofthesurf for being a lovely first reader, and m. Butterfly for her usual bang up editing job.
