Title: Kaikua`ana
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: Primarily Danny and Steve - GEN
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine.

Summary: Tag for Episode 5.07, Ina Paha. He'd seen him battered, he'd seen him bloody, but until this moment, he'd never seen him broken.

Author's Note: I've only written one other H50 story, also triggered (ironically enough) by Wo Fat's sadistic torture of Steve. Not sure I want to explore why that particular event makes me want to write about these characters. I wrote this for my dear friend, lovinjackson, because I promised, and for kristen999 who wanted to see something from Danny's perspective.

This is the first time I've written from Danny's PoV (but given it's my second H50 story, that's not exactly a shocker), and I've no idea if I'll get it right, but I wanted to at least give it a go. Also? What I know about hallucinogenic drugs could barely fill a thimble, so read this for entertainment purposes only and try not to judge too harshly. If you do read, I hope you enjoy.

Kaikua`ana is Hawaiian for "brother."

Col. Mustard: "This is war, Peacock. Casualties are inevitable. You can not make an omelet without breaking eggs, every cook will tell you that."

Mrs. Peacock: "But look what happened to the cook!"

*slow clap*

I hope there are still some of ya’ll out there wanting to chat about this epi. Better late than never, yeah? This may be a shorter Ramble, but it's not a direct reflection of enjoyment, merely substance, time, and (quite honestly) exhaustion. These work trips with multiple all-day meetings get harder and harder.

Title: Thicker Than Water
Fandom: Supernatural
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: Dean, Sam, Castiel
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine.

Summary: Missing Scene for Episode 10.03, Soul Survivor. The pain went deeper than just the physical effects of the blood. It was pain of regret, of missed chances, of what ifs and should haves, of loss. It was the pain of humanity.

Author’s Note: This is more of a “director’s cut” missing scene…with me as the director. It’s what played in my head while Sam cured Dean of his demon self. I enjoyed the episode but felt like we missed out on some of the “show don’t tell” aspect of the story. Probably would have had more impact if I’d posted closer to the episode, and while I haven’t taken time to look (bad Gaelic) I know there are most likely dozens of other stories out there just like this only better, but, well, there you go.

I’ve mostly played along with the canon events as they transpired; however, if it doesn’t follow the script of the episode to the letter, please don’t throw things at me. There has been some creative license applied here. I’m trying to see if the muse still has it in her when it comes to SPN.

If you read, I hope you enjoy.

Ramble On
Hi guys! Happy 200th Episode day!

Gotta say, not sure what to expect with this one, but I'm ready to sit back and enjoy the ride just like the last 199 episodes. Looking forward to seeing what our boys and our show come up with.

But! Unfortunately, my Ramble will be delayed a bit. I am traveling to CA for work today and between airports, rental cars, team dinners, and hotels, I'll most definitely miss seeing our show tonight. For those of you who enjoy reading my take on things, I'll post it on or before Saturday the 15th. I know, I know...by that time you'll be all talked out and the verdict will have been read, but, hey, maybe you'll come by just to chat with me if nothing else.

In the meantime, I wrote SPN fic. I'll post it before I hope on the plane today. :)

Have a great Tuesday, ya'll!

Slainte!
With Honor
Title: Reckoning [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: The Musketeers, BBC
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: d'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, Aramis, cameo by Constance - GEN
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine.

Summary: Set post Season 1. Musketeers are asked to sacrifice love, comfort, wealth, title…but the one thing they will not sacrifice is each other.

Author’s Note: My dear friend thruterryseyes would call this story a self-indulgence…and she’d be right. It was basically born out of a highly-caffeinated road trip while listening to Zack Hemsey and Linkin Park. I’m wasn't even sure I should actually post it, but it’s written, and it’s the kind of hurt/comfort I like to read, so…here you go.

There really is no noble exploration of character or plot development within the parameters of canon here. Merely a random what if that bared its teeth and grabbed hold of my imagination. While all four play a role, this is pretty much focused on d’Artagnan. Which, yes, means he bears the brunt of the pain, and I decided to stick with his PoV throughout the story.

It’s angsty and there’s a couple “mature-ish” scenes; despite all of this, I really do hope you enjoy!

Original Fic: Missing Peace, PG-13, GEN

writing is hard
In 2010, I completed this short story for a Kansas Fiction Writers contest. It reached the final rounds, but didn't win.

That same year, I participated in a Flash Fiction challenge through two rounds. Since that time, the only original fiction writing I've done was to complete NaNoWriMo in 2012 and toil in relative secret on my novel, Kill Creek Road. Writing fanfiction has been rather rewarding; it's actually a bit hard to step away from the instant reaction fanfic generates to focus more on non-TV Show-related fic.

Recently, I was reminded of this piece. Reading it sparked a renewed interest in the act that is simply storytelling, not specifically fanfic writing. I thought I'd post it here and see what those of you who are interested in reading think of it. Some of you read it back in 2010 when it was posted to my Storyteller's blog, and I thank you most sincerely for that. If you do choose to read, I hope you enjoy.
