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.

When the Levee BreaksCollapse )

Title: The Cave
Fandom: Supernatural
Author: gaelicspirit
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Dean, Sam, Castiel (cameo) -- GEN

Summary: Set during S11, after Baby and before Thin Lizzy. Trapped and wounded, only one thing will save the Winchesters from the horror that waits in the cave: their bond as brothers. Too bad they can’t remember who they are.

Disclaimer/Warning: They’re not mine. More’s the pity. Ironically, title does not come from Mumford & Sons song of the same name. Even though that’s totally something I would do. But the chapter titles are classic rock songs. Because why not? Oh, and the cave monster? Pure fiction. I think.

Author’s Note: It’s been 84 years….

Just kidding. But, it has been a while since I wrote an original Supernatural story (i.e., not a tag or missing scene built off of an episode where I just needed a little bit more). I’ve been hanging out quite happily in the world of the gorgeous, swashbuckling brotherhood of The Musketeers and lurking on Hell’s Kitchen’s rooftops with Daredevil’s blind vigilante lawyer. I won’t be leaving those troves of storytelling inspiration any time soon, but….

A little over a year ago, I had an idea for the Winchester brothers (around the time Dean was de-demonized in S10), and after some ridiculous insomnia and endless months of familial angst, I started chewing on this idea. Honestly, it’s really just a story, nothing more than a way to remember all the reasons they are who they are—a flashback episode, if you will—and an excuse for some angst and h/c Winchester style.

I am a little rusty, and I know you have plenty of other places to go to get your h/c fixes, you resourceful things, but I’m offering this to you anyway, warts and all. It was written for pure entertainment purposes, so if you read, I hope you enjoy.

PS? LiveJournal became a bit of a headache to post stories to while I was away. Hope this loads okay for everyone.
