Notes: Duo POV.
This is up there with ep 3 as my favourite. Not only does Duo go all D&M and act like a worried parent, but there's Trowa being amusingly sarcastic, and references to one of my favourite childhood cartoons. If anyone wants to see Pecos Bill, you can find it on the Disney dvd Melody Time. I am also happy with the progression in their friendship at this point. BFFs!

Beta: DaMoyre.
Awards: Fanworkrecs fic rec, Defying The Stereotype fic rec.
Notes: Duo POV. The start of what has become a favourite series of mine, despite its rare character team-up.
I fully blame Aoi and Shoori from the defunct website Love Is A Battlefield for getting me into the Duo/Trowa combination. Because it's not a common pairing, I felt comfortable exploring it, and not feeling like I was rehashing things that had been done hundreds of times before.
The first 3 installments were very graciously recommended at some awesome sites, and I'm still so very chuffed at that. This series is the kind that doesn't get a lot of feedback, but when it does, it's wonderful and very thoughtful.

Notes: AU. The original Runihura character is one from my original Egyptian fiction, which was a particular adaptation of Fox's character. Transplanted into FH, he was the template for what eventually became the character of Arath (with fewer Setian religious overtones). I am amused at this as Fox and Arath are so different, and so blatantly don't like each other. In reality, however, they have this very odd connection. I considered changing Runihura's name to Arath in this, bu
t it really is such an early version of Arath's character, that it doesn't bear more than a passing resemblance to the person that came to appear regularly in FH. So Runihura he stays. Meanwhile, Runihura is an ancient Egyptian name meaning 'Destroyer', and I'm so happy with all the Setian religious ritual I invented.

Notes: While I think I'll always love Mik/Tybalt best, and the fan responses to potential Tybalt/Skids made me nutty, I didn't mind the idea of Tybalt and Gio ending up together. By the end of the comic, Gio had changed a lot, and definitely matured. Tybalt had realised he wasn't as infallible as he liked to think. They fit together much better than earlier on in the series, and while I'm not confident they could've kept the relationship alive, they would've had a good time while it lasted.

Notes: Harley POV. AU fic in which Harley hooked up with Tybalt instead of Mikhael. According to a conversation I had with the creator of BMB years ago, she said that when transplanting the cast from TiH to BMB, it was a 50/50 toss-up as to whether it was going to be Mik/Harl or Tybalt/Harl as that primary relationship. Mik/Harl obviously won, but I wondered what the flip-side might've been like. I maintain that the Harley in a relationship with Tybalt would have a few key differences in his makeup, being influenced by a different partner. For one, he'd be a lot better at manipulation.

Awards: -
Notes: Again, one of those 'so obscure no-one will read but it's one of my favourites'. Jack is the son of Jack Silver and Marlane (before she AU-eloped with Aaron), and he's fully-human. Jeb (Jebediah), Zeke (Ezekiel Malachai) and Ezra are three of Aaron and Marlane's snake-offspring. Born as snakes, but able to shed and take on a hybridised human form. They are legitimately half-human, and so can do this without having to steal and sew a human skin like their father. The reason they look so similar to Jack and each other is because Marlane is the only human DNA they possess (the rest being rattlesnakey), so her features are very dominant. Jack has Silver DNA, and as such it's a little easier to tell him apart from his half-brothers. Since Aaron doesn't really have a surname, they take Marlane's maiden name, including Jack.
If you want to get really technical? Maru, Arath's ex-girlfriend from FH become's Jeb's gf. And they are very happy together :)

Notes:
When I posted this on FFN not long ago, I got a reply that said the title seemed to be of a misnomer, because really, there is no 'rise' for him, at least, not in these 3 pieces. And I have to say, that was a conscious decision on my part. Because I don't believe that Sirius ever recovered from his fall from grace. Not really, anyway. The rise in the title and the rise in this fic is the turning point which begins the events that ultimately finally clear Sirius' name.
Unfortunately, he doesn't live to see it.
First HP fic. I liked how this one turned out, personally. My favourite chapter is the 2nd one, my favourite part being the aftermath of the explosion. I also didn't realise until ages after I wrote this, that each chapter ends with a sound; a crack, a laugh, a scream. That was completely accidental.

Notes: Supai always seemed as though once he got into the habit of being in a human body, he'd become quite the entrepreneur. Again, an obscure fic that I just love to bits. Even the revision was nothing more than a grammar-check, with no story details changed at all.
I should probably explain Supai, though. I wrote some original fic concerning Incan gods, that will hopefully be on here soon. Supai is the God of Death. He is a bit of a prick, yo.
