Title: Solid Ground [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: MacGyver (2016)
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: Mac, Jack, Full Team, OC – GEN
Rating: PG-13
Words: 63,432
Summary: Set post 3x02. Angus MacGyver lives on a fault line, constantly prepared for people he loves to leave him. It takes his world literally falling apart for Mac to find solid ground.

Or…the time the Phoenix team endured an earthquake and Jack recalled a particularly gruesome tour he and Mac barely survived.

Disclaimer/Warning: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie and/or TV show line. I like to work in quotes now and again. And I still write long chapters, so if you choose to read…settle in. Also, fair warning. This one is going to be angsty, ya’ll. Especially considering where we are with certain characters in the canon story line.

In episode 3x02, when recalling what Worthy means to him, Jack tells Mac, “Last time I saw Worthy, we’d just gotten back from a tough rotation. And if anyone knows what I’m talking about, it’s you. It was a gruesome deployment.” That stuck with me, and I realized I needed to turn it into a story. I played with the timeline a smidge, so for the sake of this story, let’s just all agree that there were a few weeks between episodes 3x02 and 3x03.

Finally, I am not in the military, and though I have researched, I will most likely get things wrong. Not only that, but the situations I put these characters in are fictional, imaginary, and based on what I’ve seen in movies and read in books. If you are in the military, please know that anything that is inaccurate is not meant to be an insult. However, if you’re reading fanfic, I'm guessing you probably already understand everything is for the sake of the story.

My thanks to my friend and sanity-reader, ThruTerrysEyes. And to Pandigirl19 who is ever vigilant in her inspiration. And finally, many thanks to SarieVenea, not only for her service, but also for endeavoring to help me keep the military jargon and references as accurate as possible. You are aces, my friend.

Title: Sight Unseen [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: MacGyver (2016)
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: Mac, Jack, Full Team, OC – GEN
Rating: PG-13
Words: 49,305
Summary: Set post S2, pre S3. Jack may have accepted Mac walking away from the Phoenix, but protecting Mac was for life. Especially when the odds stacked against him include a dangerous chemical agent, a couple of rogue scientists, and a few nefarious mercenaries. Jack will stop at nothing to keep Mac safe, even it means crawling through Roman catacombs, wounded, with a blind partner.

Disclaimer/Warning: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie line. I like to work in quotes now and again. And…the characters swear a bit more in my hands than they do on the show. Also, medical inaccuracies abound. I did research, but…then I fictioned. So, don’t try any of the medical procedures in this story at home, kids.
Oh, one last thing. Everything related to Rome is thanks to armchair traveling. I haven’t actually been there. Yet. So if you’re a native, or have visited often, please try to overlook historical and geographical inaccuracies. It’s all for love of the story.

I had intended to post this prior to the S3 premier, but, well…life. You know how it is. I technically finished it before the premiere, but thought ya’ll might appreciate a sanity check. Anyway, this was always going to be AU from the end of S2 since I don’t write the show—but I hope you’ll be able to overlook the differences (and in some places, the similarities as I was Lenkov’d a few times by the premiere) and enjoy the read.

Finally, fair warning: I write long chapters. If you choose to read, get comfy.

Big thanks to my friend and confidant, ThruTerrysEyes. And thanks to pandigirl, who keeps me inspired.

Summary: Set in S2 after Wind + Water. They've been all-go-no-quit for weeks, and it's taking a toll. They're hurt, tired, and need down time. But when Mac is grabbed so that his special skill set can be used as a pawn in a crazy revenge scheme, nothing will stop Jack from getting him back. Nothing, that is, except his own pain.

Disclaimer/Warning: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie line. I like to work in quotes now and again. And the characters swear a bit more in my hands than they do on the show. But being that they’re both ex-military, I figure some creative license is permissible.

As this is set prior to the S2 finale, you'll need to forget your Mac Daddy knowledge. Also, as usual, medical inaccuracies abound. I did research, but…then I fictioned. So, don’t take any of the medical events in this story as gospel. Finally, if there are any actual explosive ordinance expert-types reading this, please turn a blind eye to the bomb-related details. I researched that, too, but then got a little worried that the FBI guy assigned to monitor my computer would start to get suspicious, so I just…pulled a page out of Lenkov’s book and wrote around the facts.

Author’s Note: This story is set in the same ‘verse as my other MacGyver stories, Anvil + Duct Tape, Wolf + Snow, and Mythology + Snare Net. You don’t have to read those to enjoy this one, but there are references made that hearken back to those stories rather than to cannon. 

Finally, I tend to write long chapters. They say you write what you like to read...and apparently, I like to read long chapters. So.


Hi there -- So, I wrote another MacGyver fic. Something about this particular universe I started within this particular fandom has really been rewarding to write (even if, by the comments from some of you the last time I posted a Mac fic, you're not all feeling the same reward reading a story from this particular fandom by me). Anyway, if you're a fan of that show--or literally have nothing else to do--I thought I'd offer it up for you to read. And if you do, I hope you enjoy.

That being said, I am not in the military. Literally everything military related in this story is based on what I’ve read in books and seen in movies or TV. If you are in the military, reading this, and I’ve grossly misrepresented something, I promise that no insult was intended. Also, medical inaccuracies abound. I did research, but…then I fictioned. So, don’t try any of the medical procedures in this story at home, kids.

Summary: Set in S2. Jack Dalton defines himself by how well he does one job: protecting MacGyver. But when he wakes up wounded to find Mac missing and no memory of where is partner might be, Jack is lost. And his only way back is to find Mac—alive.

Hiya, Folks. I'm not sure if anyone is still around, but thought maybe I'd reach out just in case. Recently, I've had a couple of readers re-discover my SPN fic and corresponding with them in reviews has me missing LiveJournal. These stories aren't SPN, but lately I've been tempted to revisit those boys.

ANYway. Below are two recent stories penned in the new MacGyver reboot. If you're a fan of that show--or literally have nothing else to do--give 'em a look. And if you do, I hope you enjoy.

Summary: Set mid-S2. Not all missions are a success, no matter how good Mac is at improvising. One failure hits Mac particularly hard and before he’s able to re-balance, the team is in the middle of another crisis—this time Mac’s ready to die before he fails to protect another innocent. Unless Jack has something to say about it.

Summary: Set in S2. When a simple search and retrieval of a rogue CIA Agent turns sideways, Jack and MacGyver are left wounded in the Canadian wilderness, their only hope of survival the very man they were sent to bring reluctantly home.

Wow, it's been a year since I've done one of these. Not sure if any of you are even still around. I hope so; it would be fun to hear from you. I had a friend reach out and ask me to write a Ramble for the Season 12 finale and as it turns out, I liked it enough to say yes. So...here goes.



The RambleCollapse )
Title: War Scars [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: The Musketeers, BBC
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: d’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, Aramis, Constance, OCs – GEN
Rating: PG-13
Words: 67,497
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie line; I tend to work familiar quotes in where I can. Caution for images of war and all that goes with it.

Summary:
Set at the start of S3, flashing back across 4 years of war between S2 and S3. Our stories are told in our scars, both seen and unseen. When the men return from the front, it’s quickly clear Paris isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Constance gathers the stories of their years at war like pages in a book, seeking a glimpse of pictures only those present could truly see.

Author’s Note: If you haven’t yet seen S3, I’ll only be spoiling a bit at the start; I’m not delving past the second episode. That said, I am taking some artistic liberty with the timeline as they got on with things in Paris a bit too quickly for my liking. So, I’ll ask your indulgence as I pad their calendar and add time between their return and the Next Big Thing that requires a Musketeer’s attention. It was just a bit hard for me to grasp the four of them returning to their lives as Musketeers as though four years of war and separation had been no big deal. It’s not quite AU, but it does stretch canon plotlines a smidge.

One more thing…scars. This story is all about scars (mostly d’Artagnan’s). If that bothers you, I wanted you to know up front. My husband has a rather impressive collection of scars because of the blows life has dealt him and I have said more than once I love each one because they are the reason I still have him. They tell his story. I’m attempting to tell the story of what transpired through four years of war based off of the discovery of scars—both physical and emotional. Oh also, Aramis is very much a part of this story, regardless of where he spent those four years. That’s the beauty of fiction. We can bend it to our will.

I hope you’re entertained.

Title: Breaking Point [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: Timeless
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: Wyatt Logan, Lucy Preston, Rufus Carlin, Garcia Flynn – GEN
Rating: PG-13
Words: 28,343
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie line. I like to work in movie quotes where I can.

Summary:
Set after S1 Epi 9, Last Ride of Bonnie & Clyde. After bouncing erratically through time for a confusing week, Flynn finally lands at one point in history long enough for the team to go after him. They are immediately thrown into the turmoil of World War I, wreaking havoc on Wyatt. When Lucy is captured as a means to manipulate the team, Wyatt and Rufus take a calculated, but dangerous risk to get her back.

Author’s Note: I had an idea after seeing Episode 9...but then it was Kripke’d by the ending of Episode 10 and I almost abandoned it. However, a friend pushed me to go ahead and write and post (thank you) and I’m clearly weak when it comes to spending more time with characters I like, so here we are. This isn’t really AU…I guess you could call it more “canon divergent” than anything. Pretend you haven’t seen Episode 10 yet and you should be good.

Check out the notes at the end of Part 2 for research info and such. Also, fair warning, angst abounds. This is a straight-up h/c fic, but…here there be angst as well. Hope you enjoy.

Many thanks to thruterryseyes and pandi19 for the pre-read. You guys are made of all things awesome.

Title: The Raid [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: Timeless
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: Wyatt Logan, Lucy Preston, Rufus Carlin, Garcia Flynn – GEN
Rating: PG-13
Words: 17,611
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine.

Summary:
Set sometime after S1 Epi 7, Stranded. Kansas, 1863. Tracking Flynn to Lawrence, the day before Quantrill’s raiders burned the town to the ground, the team works furiously to determine what the rogue traveler has planned. However, an ambush, a grievous wound, and seemingly impossible odds turn enemies into allies in a bid for survival.

Author’s Note: I am currently working on a multi-chapter fic for The Musketeers fandom, but Kripke’s new show, Timeless, has captured my attention (so far) in its freshman season. Time travel shows are always a skosh sketchy on the consistent plotting and believability, but so far I've been entertained, so we'll see how it plays out. Anyway, on a recent roadtrip with my family, the hours in the car triggered this random story idea. So, for those of you waiting for the Muskteers, it’s definitely still in development. But in the meantime, I hope some of you will enjoy this one-shot from a new fandom.

Many thanks for the sanity read and the “I’d watch this as an episode” comment, Terry. You always know what will make me post a story. 

Hi, ya'll. I have something I need to tell you. And before you ask, no...I haven't seen the premiere yet. Which is kind of the problem.
