So, in my writing, I basically have two staples: kickass female protagonists, and crossovers.

Frequently, these combine! So...

Multifandom: Downstairs, in Baker Street (PG, 5254 words)
Mrs Hudson knows perfectly well that Sherlock isn’t dead, but keeping him that way is going to require a little help from her old friends... Luckily, she isn’t short of influential connections.
In other words, the fic in which Sherlock gets crossed with NINETEEN other fandoms! Can you spot all the awesome women being referenced?

tielan: Wonder Woman (NCIS - ziva)
[personal profile] tielan
I fell in love with Ziva from the moment she appeared in NCIS. Much as I loved Kate as a character, Ziva was just My Girl.

So here, in the spirit of [ profile] halfamoon's Celebration of Female Characters, I present:

(click to enter the picspam)
ext_7730: (ncis - tony/ziva - right there)
[identity profile]
NCIS wouldn't be the same for me and wouldn't have suckered me in so hard if it weren't for Ziva David - one pretty, badass, conflicted, torn and very messed up girl with too many nuances for her own good. The real beauty of Ziva? Is that she's not just as obviously tough and kickass as this...

... but is also incredibly vulnerable when you least expect it, like this...

And she never really learned to deal with emotion too well. Pesky feelings are the one thing to incapacitate her faster than any bullet or knife could.

So, over the past year I have written 60 stories in total - most of them shipping Tony and Ziva, one way or the other. Some of them, though, have a heavy focus on her, and these I want to share here. All of them are as difficult and complicated as Ziva is herself. Some are not quite nice, some are painful, some are steamy.

summary: Tony discovers that there are things in Ziva's past that he isn't quite ready for.
word count: around 1,000

Time, Fleeting
summary: When Ziva is injured in the line of duty, she has to re-evaluate her life.
word count: around 24,000

Over Troubled Water
summary: The case they are investigating on stirs up things in Ziva's past. And Tony notices. (set during "Patriot Down")
word count: around 2,700

Director's Cut
warnings & rating: The shippy part of this is drunken, very adult almost-sweetness - well, as sweet as two emotionally inept people can get. The Somalia/backgroundy part is anything but sweet.
word count: around 7,400

summary: Ziva, undercover, in a night club. And Tony gets to watch. (very much *not* safe for work)
word count: around 2,000

Loss of
summary: A short tag to "Truth or Consequences", about as painful as the whole episode.

summary: Ziva needs reassurance, and she needs it in the middle of the night. (short tag to "Enemies Domestic")
word count: a little less than 1,900

Fast Track
summary: Ziva's past, through her eyes and mind, beginning when she is sixteen, ending a short time after "Enemies Domestic". Spoilers up to that episode. Yes, it is T/Z, but that isn't the point of this story. ;)
word count: 4,300

The Flavor of the Wind
summary: "Henna-painted leafs grew up her toes, wrapping themselves around her ankles, and for a second he wondered how far up her leg the decoration went."

warnings & rating: This is a historical AU, set in a time and place when slavery was common, and it involves slave!Tony and slave trader!Ziva, so please be aware of this before you go in.
word count: 49,000 in total

A general listing of my female-centric fic for the past year (by fandom):

beauty in the breakdown -- He's very clear when they first meet: "Someday I'm going to break your heart." Later, Zatanna Zatara discovers that when he's right, John Constantine is right.

Façade -- No matter which of the faces Batman wears, they still manage to gel together. And it's almost enough for Zatanna. Almost.

stop to check you out -- Zatanna Zatara and John Constantine talk. While stoned. Need I say more?

never as it seems -- A rough interpretation of the events of the Star Trek film filtered through River Tam's eyes.

What Remains -- Zoe finds River in Serenity's cockpit. As always, there's more going on than meets the eye.

Noble in Reason -- As Oscar Wilde said, "Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship." Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy know this better than most.

don't sound like no sonnet -- Wonder Woman and Batman have a talk while he's recovering from that whole Doomsday mission thing. As always, more is said than the words they exchange.

always vulgar and often convincing -- Dani Moonstar happens upon Sam Guthrie watching some questionable television late one night.

in a sense gone -- Sam Guthrie wants to know why Dani Moonstar's been copping an attitude with him and she's not talking-- not willingly, anyway.

it will do thee no good -- In which Illyana Rasputin is naughty and Kitty Pryde tries to scold her, then things devolve into a pillow fight.

let go and know -- After her chat with the Beast, Molly Hayes decides to visit the X-Men in NorCal about the whole extinction thing. First, though, she foils Sebastian Shaw's escape attempt and semi-rescues Wolverine.

Sweet Content -- For Dani Moonstar, there's nothing like sharing a porch swing with a beer and a good friend.

A Place Called Perfect -- Abby Sciuto and Tim McGee walk Jethro the dog. They have a reversal of roles as she talks about the future and he tries not to think about it.

Continuing Ziva's Cultural Education -- "Lesson #174: The Knock-Knock Joke"

What's Past is Prologue -- A series of unscenes (or unseen/missing scenes) between Tim McGee and Abby Sciuto over the course of Season Seven. (Find it via AO3 or at

A Wise Fool -- Short piece about the lines we draw, how they blur and what reality really is... or isn't.

a doer a wooer -- Leonard McCoy runs into Christine Chapel during an overnight hospital shift and they chat. (Well, more like exchange witty repartee and make interesting expressions at each other, while communicating surprisingly well.)

a matter of time -- When Janice Rand was assigned as yeoman to James T. Kirk, she knew he'd be trouble for her. A case of (mostly) one-sided Kirk/Rand.

another day, another daring rescue -- Five times Janice Rand rescued Jim Kirk and one time she didn't need to.

better days then this -- The Enterprise makes official first contact with Angel I. Uhura leads the away team; things go well, then they don't.

Cosmic Jokes, Karmic Retribution and Other Excuses for Life's Little Ironies -- Christine Chapel does not like hostile work environments or Leonard McCoy, and she's not shy about letting people know about it, especially her family. Featuring assorted female cousins and siblings.

Freedom's Reign -- Gaila came to Starfleet Academy for freedom, just not the kind most expect.

Hell of a Woman -- Leonard McCoy was fine with the way he was: damaged and bitter and determined to stay that way. Then he met Christine Chapel.

her honor bright -- Uhura stands up for what she believes in. Unfortunately, at sixteen, all it gets her is in trouble. Thankfully her grandmother provides some perspective.

if you miss, you may hit a star -- Christine Chapel isn't quite sure what it means to be a nurse in Starfleet but she thinks maybe an elective piloting course will help her figure it out.

leave your things behind -- Elizabeth Dehner has always had a plan. Then Vulcan is destroyed and things aren't so simple anymore.

Prelude -- The infamous alien known as Q meets the intrepid explorers of the Enterprise. It's just not the Enterprise he generally frequents... and his interest isn't in the Captain, either, but in his Yeoman.

Salt, Sweat, Sugar -- [WWII AU] Christine Chapel thought she knew where her life was going, then war broke out and she met a man named Leonard McCoy and things weren't that straightforward anymore.

something more than nothing: 1 | 2 | 3 -- Three part short story in which Christine Chapel and Leonard McCoy deal with the something more than nothing between them.

time to realize -- Five times Jim Kirk (belatedly) realized something (somewhat obvious) about Janice Rand and one time she proved what he'd always known.

Lightning Strike -- Jackie Burkhart knows it'd be stupid to fall for Steven Hyde. Lightning doesn't strike twice in the same place.

A Contest Most Fierce -- Lorna Dane shows Dani Moonstar that there's more to be done with watermelons than simply eating them.

on a stormy afternoon -- A thunderstorm makes Illyana Rasputin wonder what would happen if Jeb Guthrie was hit by lightning and then uses her wiles to try and get him to find out.

the lady doth protest too much, methinks -- Rogue deals with the Awesome Pain of hating Gambit. (Because she doesn't like him, okay?)

watch me burn -- Destiny comes for Jean Grey in the form of the Phoenix. (or, how one of Charles Xavier's premonitions comes true)

New here and was pointed to the comm by [ profile] tielan. I recently did a set of icons for [ profile] ncis20in20 featuring Ziva David. The overall coloring and textures used are very Valentinesy and girlie.


See the rest here at [ profile] onitboss

Today, I offer icons of characters in law enforcement, hoping for a better world.

This isn't a comprehensive list, so if you have a favorite female law enforcement type that I've missed, I'll be happy to make icons and add her to the list.

[identity profile]
disclaimer: They're not mine.
rating: PG for some language, innuendo and mentioned violence.
fandoms: NCIS, Stargates, Buffyverse, Criminal Intent, Touching Evil UK, Bones, Second Sight, Torchwood, Smallville, Dresden Files (tv series), The X-Files, Forever Knight, CSI, Without a Trace. (I think that's everyone)
notes: This was written prior to the end of season five of NCIS, certain portions of season 4 of Stargate: Atlantis, the end of season two of Torchwood, mid-season eight of Buffy, with hazy knowledge of seasons past three of Angel, and mid-season seven of Criminal Intent. (some of the others aren't even in production anymore)
As such, there are spoilers for probably every single one of these, some lesser spoilers than others.
So. I've always had a thing for this sort of thing. And I'm very well aware how very wish fulfillment it is. I don't care.
I figured, after those two lovely multi-fandom vids, I was at least somewhat safe to post this.
This is a direct sequel/expansion of this ficlet written ages ago

Precious times two

Pairing: Abby Sciuto/Xander Harris/Greg Sanders
Rating: 18+
Warnings: Dom/sub, F/m/m
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of the characters or the shows that they come from. No money has or will be made from this fic.
Word count: 1,112 - written for [ profile] halfamoon
Summary: Abby’s not a conventional sort of girl so why should her relationships be any different?
[identity profile]
Originally, I was planning picspam of female characters I love. But then I decided it it would probably be more fun for everyone if I made the images into icons instead. In the interests of spreading the wealth, I think the icons should all be shareable. So... are shareable. Claim the characters you love!

105 icons of awesome kick-ass female characters )

I'm sure I'll make more--even as I was labelling them, I was thinking of all the fandoms and characters I left off by accident... And if you have no idea who someone is or where she comes from, feel free to ask.
