12th-Oct-2014 06:25 pm - X-Files/True Detective fics
Hi there. I've got a hankering for some X-Files/True Detective crossover fic, and was wondering if anyone could point me that way? I'm open to any pairing, rating, genre, etc. at this point.

What I remember is that Inara's license expires and she isn't allowed to renew it. Mal and Zoe are sort of together and Zoe gets, or is, pregnant. Inara gets close to Jayne and Inara becomes the pilot for Serenity. I remember that at the end they go to the companion training house to pick up Inara's stuff and there is a trainee, a boy trainee, that disapproves of Inara's choice.

Any help would be great, thanks.
Set during Kill Ari. In this fic Kate still gets shot and dies, but the first bullet that was aimed at Tim, instead of missing him completely either ricocheted back and struck him in the back of the head or it grazes him deeply on the temple or something.

Mcgee’s so high on adrenaline that he doesn’t feel it at that time. But he might have had headaches. After Kate is shot and gone, emotions run high and both Gibbs or Tony come down and are angry and say stuff. I think this is an AU version that Tim did/didn’t do something in time the author added for dramatic effect.

I think Tony says something to the effect that Mcgee should be grateful that he’s alive. That where Kate died, he lived. Also remember Gibbs being cold to Mcgee and being hard on him. They don’t notice Tim is hit until he has been thoroughly chewed out and turns to walk away only to collapse in a heap. Of course there is guilt all around and Tony and Gibbs turn protective papa bear and big brother and have geared up their hunt for Ari. It was a really well written story with a great flow and angst. Thank you for any help you guys can offer.
23rd-Jun-2014 05:32 pm - Sparrington Fanfiction
Default Icon
I'm looking for a Sparrington (Pirates of the Caribbean, Jack Sparrow/James Norrington) fanfiction. Problem is, the only thing I remember is Jack telling a mermaid off that James belongs to him ^.^" It was either implied or outright stated that Jack is a merman himself or had at least dealing with mermaids/-men before.

Also, I'm pretty certain that it was complete and no pwp and (imho) very well written. I'm ALMOST certain that I found it somewhere online, rather than on AO3 or FFnet - perhaps even a Sparrington or PotC archive?

Hope that someone can help! Thank you in advance! :) 
I am looking for a Cristina/Jackson fanfiction, where Jackson lives in the Apartment across the hall from Cristina. I think that she has to use his shower because hers was broken or something.

If anyone can find this story, thanks. I have been trying to find it for what seems like forever.
21st-Mar-2014 12:11 pm - Jayne is connected to River in cryo
I am looking for a story that was on River is still in Cryostasis and Jayne feels connected to her. He spars and cleans his weapons near her crate. There is also a part where he lays on top of the crate.

If anyone can find this, thanks.

I have been searching high and low for a rather large series where Cutter was born a girl, I think her name was Swift, and this causes some rather amazing changes.Joyleaf challenged Bearclaw pre-series, becoming Chief, which caused some neat ripples, like Rain surviving Madcoil, among others.

I know for a fact that the female version of cutter Recognized Reyek, not Leetah.

The whole thing was HUGE, with art and multiple well thought out OCs.

I think it was called the Whirlpool? I remember that a OC's name was Cholla.

Sorry, I know this is a bit vague, but I've only recently gotten back into the Elfquest fandom, and I thought I'd try to find this series, but when I looked, I couldn't find it anywhere. I figure the site went down, but If someone has a link I can use the Wayback machine!

Can anyone help me, pretty please? :DD

Ah, sorry, no tag for Elfquest?
A few years ago, I read a long Mansfield Park fanfic, about Maria Bertram Rushworth after her disgrace. It's about her learning to be independent and managing the farm/small estate her father has banished her to and learning to be happy there. I can't find it for the life of me--does anyone know it?

Eta: Found! It is Maria, by Judith Brocklehurst.
14th-Sep-2013 04:17 pm - LF Boromir/OC and Aragorn/OC
LF two fics I read but didn't bookmark: a Lord of the Rings fic about Boromir pre-series, figuring out that he's gay and starting a relationship with a military officer from his uncle's guard. (Homosexuality is frowned upon, so it's a secret.) Faramir found out and didn't understand, but kept his brother's secret. Eventually Denethor found out and hit the roof, wanting to bring the other officer up on charges (treason, maybe?), and sent Boromir away to check out Faramir's dream to get him out of Gondor and away from his lover.

Then there's one about Aragorn before the books. There's a scare, he almost dies, and he is pressured to marry and sire heirs. Enter a really well-fleshed out daughter of the Rangers. It's a marriage of convenience, but there's affection and partnership, and a lot of details about what every-day life is like in the Ranger's lands.

Also, any good, plotty LotR recs you've got would be welcome
8th-Sep-2013 12:28 am - Looking for a Harry/Draco fic
It was a darkfic I guess you could say. All Harry's friends keep warning him and nagging him about dating Draco, Draco's not to be trusted, surely he's a Death Eater, etc...and Harry brushes it all off.

In one specific scene Harry is given a Sneakoscope to use on Draco, which Harry breaks and throws away.

In a lovely and tragic reveal, [click to uncover]it turns out that Harry is the one spying on Draco, on Dumbledore's orders. This is why he can't have the Sneakoscope around-it would signal his own deceit.

It was very well done, I may be too tired to do it justice right now. Hopefully somebody remembers it?
This is probably an incredibly weird request, but I'm looking for Banastre Tarleton and John Andre slash. I'm not even sure that anyone has slashed them ever, but someone should because they would make a *beautiful* couple. If you have any leads, please!!! 
7th-Jul-2013 12:24 pm - Lost Batman Fiction
Does anyone know if thehoyden's Batman fiction is posted online anywhere?
Thanks in advance for any help.
nono, ffxii, moogle
I read this fic years ago, and I think the author might have deleted it from Anyway, in it Harley is the Joker's psychiatrist (of course) but it becomes revealed that he was involved in a black-ops military unit that recruited budding psychopaths. There are associations with the Russian mob and eventual amnesia, although that's fixed in the epilogue/final chapter. One plot point I remember is that Harley was abused by her stepfather, so the Joker basically tortures him to death in front of her. If anyone knows what I'm talking about/where I can find it, I would be eternally grateful.
17th-Nov-2012 11:59 pm - Avatar fic about Iroh's backstory?
I enjoyed Avatar: The Last Airbender, but it never occurred to me to seek out fic about it until a friend recced me Something To Hold On To by Wildgoosery. Some line or other in that story got me thinking that there is a wealth of interesting stuff to be explored in Iroh's backstory. We looked on Ao3 and but couldn't come up with anything which doesn't leave me with a lot of hope, but I can't believe that nobody has explored Iroh further. He's an awesome character and everybody loves him. So if you know of any Iroh-centric stories I'd appreciate a link. Thanks!
28th-Oct-2012 08:45 pm - Harry Slash
I am looking for some good long chapters complete stories of Snape/Harry slash maybe with mpreg/harry and bottom/harry...

27th-Sep-2012 09:17 pm - Looking for Original Moresomes
I've recently found a fiction that I really liked that involved a multiple of characters with one character. When I try googling similar stories, I keep encountering fanfiction; I'm all for slashing but, as of now, I'm reaaalllyyy craving original character stories. I don't mind whether it's multiple males and a female or multiple males and a single male. Just... something. And above all, I would love it to have a plot. :)

Thank you!
Sita Sings the Blues
Hi guys, I hope someone can help me. I can't remember the name/author of a Charles/Erik fic that was extremely long, and was about them retiring and being married in New England.

So sorry I can't be more specific... hopefully someone recognizes it.
18th-Jun-2012 07:17 pm - Dark Angel Logan/Alec
Sam - research

I posted this a few months ago without success, so I hope it's not too soon to try again.

I'm looking for a Dark Angel story in which Alec is on the run, but begins having seizures, so he goes to Logan, who gives Alec the tryptophan he needs, and nurtures him back to health. I'm pretty sure they slept together once in the story, but it may have been unrequited gen. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
2nd-Jun-2012 12:42 pm - Bandom, accidentally outed
I am looking for a story in which a bandom character accidentally outs himself as gay--even though he really isn't. Eventually, he realizes that he is and gets together with another guy from the band.

I am not a bandom fan, so I can't even tell you which band it was or the characters' names. It starts out that some gay person dies and there is going to be a benefit concert by gay artists. The bandom guy knows about the benefit but not that it's going to be gay artists, and so says in an interview that it was a tragedy and of course they will play for it. Then, of course, he can't back down publicly without looking like a jerk, so he pretends to be gay. Another band member actually is gay, and comes out too, and they pretend to be together (I think?) I know there was an article about how the first guy could do better, and he gets furious and writes a blog post titled something like "I hate you (a love story)." Then he and the other guy get together.

I'm trying to find the one in which Loki enters Asgard into the EuroSong contest. I'm fairly sure it was on a meme (norsekink, maybe? or Thor kink [dunno the link]), and it's not recent. I think I read it last year. (I can provide details of the crack that ensues, but it'd spoil things if you haven't read the fic.) Help?

(Also, do the Marvel movie 'verse have a finders comm?)

ETA: The friend I was trying to find it for found it herself: Asgard... Douze Points by ladyk_d_azrael XD
Floating Lady
I'm looking for a fic I read ages ago where Obi-Wan goes to find a prostitute for the night, and Qui-Gon disguises himself as a prostitute in order to sleep with Obi Wan. They were on a mission somewhere and Obi-Wan was curious, and then Qui-Gon was worried about him and decided to intervene. It was a sweet, caring story with a happy ending. Does anybody recongnize it?

Also, more in general, any recs for fics that are focused on Qui and Obi's relationship, not overly angsty, and with happy endings would be great. I'm more interested in fics where they are equals, with details about them being Jedi, living in the Temple, going on missions, and less in fics that are all Epic and saving the galaxy, where Qui is Anakin's Master and there's Angst and Foreshadowing and stuff.
15th-May-2012 05:53 pm - Lost Batman Fic
I ran into a Batman fic  6-months to a year ago on FFN that I've never been able to relocate. It centered on a young Dick Grayson, who was killed by something that was probably supernatural in origin (but could have been a gunshot wound -- again, my memory is vague.) He was able to come back from the dead once a year and see Bruce and Alfred. The only scenes I remember are one in which Bruce offers to take Dick somewhere and Dick opts to hang around Bruce's office and one in which Dick goes into Bruce's room for comfort and Bruce is thinking about how nice it is to have Dick beside him. Does this ring any bells for anyone? 
12th-May-2012 09:33 pm - Looking for Reboot fic.
BJ & Hawkeye - Evil Geniuses
I'm looking for a Star Trek: Reboot fic I read awhile ago. It was probably at least 10,000 words long since I mostly only read long fic and it wasn't a wip. In it Kirk had some psi abilities that he kept hidden. I think the story starts while they're still in the academy but what I remember most about the fic was that Kirk felt when the people of Vulcan died and he had a lot of trouble handling what that did to his psi ability. I'm also pretty sure the fic ended up Kirk/Spock.

I have no idea where or how to find this fic myself so I'd be really grateful for any help you can give me!
25th-Mar-2012 06:03 pm - Harry Potter Request
sexy daniel
Hi all,
I'm looking for a type of HP fic that I'm not sure exists...  anything that focuses on McGonagall finding out about Sirius being an animagus. Whether it's when he's still at Hogwarts, after graduation, post-Azkaban, or an AU where he was never there...  I was just thinking that as the transfiguration professor, it would be intriguing to see her reaction/thoughts to her students doing something so advanced. And I say Sirius and not James or Peter just because I'm more interested in his character, but definitely ok if they're around as well.

Has anyone read a fic like this, even if it's just part of the story?  Or if not, anyone know of a similar search com specifically for HP? (Storyfinders doesn't allow non-specific requests)

Thanks for any ideas....
