Notes: A wonderful author by the name of Jenny wrote a wonderful post FH fix it fic entitled Springtime. (It is amazing, I recommend you read it right now. Go ahead, I'll wait. And afterwards, please please leave her feedback). I fell in love with it so much, I started to write something set afterwards, in the situation she set up. This is the first in a series of fics chronicling Fox's birthday celebrations.
Makana is a Hawaiian word meaning 'gift'.

Notes: If you're familiar with my work (or with me!) you know that I wasn't happy with how FH ended for my favourite characters. According to the post-script of the series, you can either go with the idea that Fox and Collin split, which would lead into the other comic OPB, or they were able to stay together. I am in the latter's camp, but recently I got to thinking about them breaking up. If I entertained the notion of them breaking up... this is how I think it would've happened. I think their characters weren't as tight or as consistently portrayed in the last year or so, but I've done my best to keep the line of story that had been happening, reconciling the old and new characterisations and doing my best to be objective about it, not subjective. To that end, this is a third person limited fic, and it follows Nefertari's experiences with the events. Many thanks to my 3 very talented betas, who put up with me pasting things to them, haranguing them, and emailing rewrites at odd hours. It was important that this fic got a really good going-over, because I wanted it to be good. I think it's about as good as I can make it right now. I hope you enjoy. :)

I had trouble naming this piece, but it came to me as I thought about Fox losing Collin becomes a directionless compass. I looked up some navigation terms and came across 'dead reckoning', which is a way to calculate one's current position using previously determined positions, then extrapolating future positions based on that data. The part I liked the best about it, however, was this:
A disadvantage of dead reckoning is that since new values are calculated solely from previous values, the errors and uncertainties of the process are cumulative, so the error and uncertainty in the value grow with time. To me, this is very indicative of what's happening with Fox right at this time, and what will happen to him in the near future.

Notes: written probably around 2006, it never actually got posted to LJ, just put straight up on my old fic site. This fic is another little in-joke to myself about original fic. I have a work in progress original fic on my hard drive called Alternative Medicine starring Sula the caveman. Sula was adapted from Red Fox, who is a stupid invention of Fox's. Because he's odd. While no actual parts of AltMeds are up (yet!), you can read about Sula causing all manner of drama in these other fic crossovers.

Notes: Crack-like AU. Basically... Collin becomes dictator of a South American country. Fox becomes his general (this was before they were together in the comics). He had lots of sex with Fox, and made him call him 'sir'. Fox was known as the Generalisimo, and got to wear a cool hat, and an eyepatch, because he thought it made him look dangerous. Sometimes he wore two on both eyes, though. that was just dumb. They lived in a very nice presidential palace. And Fox got to pick his own staff purely on the basis of how sexy they were. Oh, he slept with some of them, too, but saved all the good stuff for Collin. (Collin knew about this, I should point out, it wasn't a secret adultery thing).
And Collin liked it when he got banged when Fox was wearing his hat.

It was posted in 2003, but my info tells me it was actually written on 15-09-2002! As you can see, Regime! as a ridiculously odd AU never got written, but elements of it crept into the comics, most notably 2004's Halloween.

Notes: More fewchur fic. The first one I ever wrote, as a matter of fact. This was completed fairly early on, possibly around 2003/04, as it references Fox still having his piercing up until the time they had kids. In FH canon, he did dispense with it over the course of the comic's run, like the purple hair dye :) Also, Fox used to type/sing 'Rubber Ducky' to Collin over aim back at their apartment. Trufax.

Notes: Ok, so this strip is a great example of a bizarre kink that Collin possessed -- he loved it when Fox had to fight through East Telnetcomm, and come home all bloody and bruised. He was very turned on by this. I wrote fic detailing. :) It was started not long after this strip (2006), but didn't get completed until the posting date. I actually really like this fic. I like it when Collin gets uber-sexy-demanding.

I don't know whether I ever did a good job of it, but I wanted this piece to be a little bit of foreshadowing as to what would come. Fox was getting more and more consumed with his job at The Daily Warning, and Collin finally had a good friend outside of Fox, so he was starting to entertain himself when Fox wasn't available, which was frequently. There's also that element of Fox just expecting Collin to be there for him, and the odd realisation when he's not.
