So there's a challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] leverageland called "GoodWrites" in which we were to take a book and re-write it (or a part of it) with a Leverage-bent. I really wanted to do American Gods (seriously, I have it all casted and everything) but ran out of time. So instead, I picked *another* of my favourite books and... yeah...

(This is a voting challenge but my entry wasn't included because I mis-remembered the word count limits. Yeah...)

Title: Hardison Fowl
Book chosen: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Warnings (if any): Yeah, my brain, I don't even know...
Word Count: 1,281 (*headdesk* - maximum was 1,250. I thought it was 1,500...)
Disclaimer: Completely not mine, this is Eion Colfer's baby and I won't be posting this anywhere but eljay because entire sections are cribbed from the book, so if you like how this sounds, check out the Artemis Fowl books!

Title: like a rootless tree...
Author: WhiskyInMind
Rating: 15 for adult themes
Fandom: Leverage
Disclaimer Not my sandbox, I'm just playin' here...
Spoilers: AU Ending of The Big Bang Job
Summary"The rest of the team. They don't need to know. What I did."
Nate looks at him a little quizzically for a moment but finally he nods. It'll be their secret.
Could it be their last?
Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] leverageland "TV Tropin'" challenge. My Trope was this, which is kinda spoilery for the fic, so I'm not putting the text in until the end of the fic
Warnings: Highlight text for spoilers major character death, and a little bit of Nate bashing...
Wordcount: 2387
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] teamgrifter rocks. The support from my fellow Grifters has been astonishing - and most especially [livejournal.com profile] mizzy2k who helped provide the ending when I was scared to actually go to that very final place, and to [livejournal.com profile] telaryn for listening, reading, cajoling, threatening and above all, writing me reward porn. (I can haz Dean/Eliot/Impala now plz?)

There's no going back. Not after this. )

for [livejournal.com profile] crossbigbang

Title: Paths Crossed
Author(s): [livejournal.com profile] whiskyinmind
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] reapertownusa
Crossover: Supernatural/Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Disclaimer: Neither of these are my sandboxes, I'm just playing in them for a while.
Type: Gen, pre-het
Rating: R for language
Word Count: ~21,000
Characters/Pairings: John Winchester, Dean Winchester, Faith Lehane
Warnings:
Spoilers: pre-series for Supernatural, a few years post-Chosen for Buffyverse (not including comic canon)
Summary: "I was working my own gig. This voodoo thing down in New Orleans " In the devastation left behind by Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans has become a magnet for vampires, demons and all those things that go bump in the night. Dean Winchester is on the trail of a voodoo priestess but may be a little out of his league here. Just as well there's a Slayer in town...
Author’s Notes: This was a hard story to write, winding a real world tragedy into fiction like this is not something I would ever do lightly, however when I knew I wanted to write a pre-series meeting between Dean and Faith I found Supernatural's own canon pretty much forced me to address it. I am hugely indebted to [livejournal.com profile] bellatemple who helped me hugely (without her ever knowing how much) with her memories as a volunteer in New Orleans. I also owe a huge debt of gratitude to [livejournal.com profile] telaryn who saw the first draft of this and didn't laugh at how terrible it was!

The amazing artwork by [livejournal.com profile] reapertownusa blows me away. She's captured the moment perfectly and you should all go marvel over how amazing it is!

Posting it here 'cos I can.

Challenge one was to create a character for Leverage, played by an actor who has not appeared on the show, and write a short story detailing how they would fit into the show.
