Summary: Before Clyde met Luke, he really didn't pay attention to how many celestial bodies came plummeting towards Earth on a regular basis. (Post-The Lost Boy.)

A/N: My first Yuletide fic! Written for [livejournal.com profile] philote_auctor, who requested Luke/Clyde friendship. It was a great exercise because I don't think I've ever written a fic in which a female character is not at least one of the major players. I hope I managed it! (Also here on AO3.)

A/N: Yeah, you all knew it was coming. The potential for Laura Roslin and Sarah Jane Smith interaction is so fantastic, I couldn't resist.

A/N: You guys, I actually wrote fic! What is this? (400 words totally counts. It's been over a year and I'm very much in poetry mode at the moment.) This was written for [livejournal.com profile] adama_roslin's MOL, prompt "lonely". Spoilers for 4.5, set sometime after ADFMS.

fic (bsg): out of gas and riding on air

Title: Out of Gas and Riding on Air

Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita

Summary: For weeks, she’s been desperate to get this trial over with, to send Gaius Baltar through an airlock and move on with the rest of the fleet. She still is, but now there’s a new battle to fight, and part of her is ready to lay down her arms.

AN: Written for [livejournal.com profile] duathkaimler for the [livejournal.com profile] adama_roslin Secret Santa exchange. Her request was "an Adama/Roslin fic that occurs within season 3 or season 4. I suppose I just wish for something happy (that could include fluff, smut, both, or anything else!), that involves a stolen moment between the two of them on Galactica (outside of Bill's quarters). If it involves Saul somehow, that would be awesome, but not a requirement."

The last fic I wrote was for last year's exchange, so I'm a bit rusty. Between my constant nitpicking and catching a miserable cold a couple of days ago, it's taken me awhile to finish - I'm sorry I'm just now posting it!

I tried to make it happy, I really did, and I think I succeeded on some counts! It's angsty fluff, if you will. I hope you enjoy nonetheless. Happy Holidays :)

It had been too much to hope for. )

ficlet (bsg): diplomacy

This week's [livejournal.com profile] rememberlaura theme and specifically today's drabble post reminded me of a very short drabble-like fic I wrote right after He That Believeth In Me airs. I posted it then but had totally forgotten about it and considering most of you weren't on my friends list then and I never posted it anywhere else, I thought I'd repost it. (Really, I just want to use my fanfiction tag again, because I don't think I've posted anything new in a YEAR. Wow, I fail.)

Diplomacy )



Also, thanks to those who commented/messaged me in response to yesterday's post - being nervous (even about stupid things) isn't so bad when there's a great support system!

fic (mm): all the girls that you'll never see

Here's the final product! For those of you at [livejournal.com profile] mary_mcawesome, you've most of these drabbles, but I finally finished the little project. In honor of Mary's birthday I wrote 100 words for 11 of my favorite characters of hers, like I did a couple of years ago for Sarah Clarke. Mary's played a lot of incredible women so I didn't get to touch on them all, but hopefully you'll enjoy those that I did. A big thank you to those that have commented already! Title is taken from "Be Careful", by Patty Griffin.

I was working on a Caprica/Nina Earth!fic, but that didn't really go anywhere, so this is attempt number 2. It's not quite femslash but it's about the Natalie/Nina relationship after leaving the fleet.

Nina recognized the small planet the moment it came into view. )

ficlet (bsg/24): crackship of crack!

[livejournal.com profile] _ila_ just made my day!



This was inspired first by Number Nine, and then more recently by this little ficlet I wrote for her, here. )

I'm going to be so depressed when the actual Number 9 is revealed. This is a fun crackship!

If anyone wants to pass on any further fic ideas, go for it, because I want to write them but can't come up with anything that isn't ridiculously smutty. The 6/9 pairing was SO not intentional but it isn't helping.

Mmm, now I want a Six/Nine icon. (And I CAN'T TYPE NINE. I KEEP TYPING NINA. BOO.)

And while we're talking about Nina - Sarah Clarke is MY hero.

TM: Who are your heroes? Why?

Sarah: Anyone who is crusading to help the environment. Because even though it is getting more politically correct to care about the earth.there are still only a handful of people who are actually making a difference and changing the way we think about ourselves and our relationship to the planet.
