Title: whatever the question
Fandom: Suits
Ship: Harvey/Mike
Rating: NC17
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: When Harvey and Mike are called into Jessica's office, they're convinced she has discovered the truth about Mike's past. And she has, just not in the way they anticipated. It's revealed that Mike isn't actually an American citizen, and Harvey does what he always does: covers for Mike. He says the first idea that comes into his head, which just happens to result in Harvey telling the American government that he and Mike are getting married.
Authors Notes: So, this is AU because, apart from Mike's past, there are a few other minor changes. In terms of canon, only the events of season one occurred in this verse, so no one knows the truth about Mike's lack of law degree. Also, characters that are dead in canon are alive and well here because of reasons. (I wrote this before season three started, so Harvey's brother has a different name, and Gordon might be slightly different than in canon.)
This is 40k of domestic goodness and zero plot, so consider yourselves warned. :O)
It probably won't take you too long to work out that the core of this fic was inspired by The Proposal, but it's definitely it's own story.
A million hugs and kisses to my dear friend and beta, [ profile] smartalli, because without her this fic would literally not exist. I love you, bb.

A sudden clarity comes over Harvey. He's already lied for Mike before, every damn day in fact. He wouldn't take any of those days back, and he's never regretted the decision to hire Mike. He's always protected Mike. He's just doing it in a different way now. )

Fandom: Teen Wolf
Ship: Derek/Stiles
Rating: PG13
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: "This is your best idea yet," Stiles tells Derek.
The group turn to him as one, each with varying shades of surprise. He looks at them all in turn, noting in particular Scott's look of vague betrayal (like even though he and Derek have acclimated and are one pack Scott clearly still thinks Stiles should automatically side with him whenever the two of them disagree) and Derek's look of surprise (like he's thinking exactly the same as Scott).
"Well," Stiles clarifies, "you gotta remember how spectacularly awful all your other plans have been over the years. I mean, this is being graded on a significant curve. But it could work. I like it."
Authors Notes:This was written before season three aired, so there are some very minor details that don't match up with current canon, but just go with it. :O) Thanks to the fabulous [ profile] smartalli for the beta.

So maybe he's betraying his own bedroom (which he loves, by the way) by thinking this, but Derek's bed could well be the most comfortable place in the world. )

Title: All My Fortunes At Thy Foot I'll Lay
Fandom: Suits
Ship: Harvey/Mike
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: "Do you play?" Mike asked, head nodding towards the baby grand piano in the corner, and before Harvey could answer Mike continued with, "Nah, you're probably one of those rich bastards who buys a piano just because they can afford it and can't play a note to save themselves."
The statement was delivered without heat, a twinkle in his eyes, and Harvey couldn't help but laugh. It wasn't an accurate account by any stretch of the imagination, but before he could protest Mike was up off the couch and heading over to it. He sat on the soft bench and lifted the fallboard, his fingers gliding reverently over the keys.
Authors Notes: Written during the mid-season two hiatus, so just ignore everything that happened post High Noon - especially Mike getting high again after that night with Harvey. Thanks as always to my lovely beta [ profile] smartalli.

Harvey was enjoying a rare night off. )

Title: under the glow of a warm morning light
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Ship: Derek/Stiles
Rating: R
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: Stiles feels like he can't breathe with Derek looking at him like that. Stiles has always felt so small and insignificant under Derek's gaze, like he was just some lowly creature barely worthy of his attention. But now he feels strong and empowered and wanted. He desperately wants to know what's happening between them, what it all means and what it is exactly that Derek wants from him, but he's terrified of the answer not being what he wants (if Derek deigns to answer him at all). So instead he submits to his other desire: he crosses the room and sinks into Derek's lap as he presses their mouths together. [sequel to under the cover of darkness]
Authors Notes: So, when I posted under the cover of darkness and everyone started asking for a sequel I was completely blown away. Mostly because it was my first Teen Wolf fic and I honestly had no idea if people would even like the fic or not lol. But also because it was written as a one shot, and when the inital idea for the fic came to me it had an angsty ending, but I couldn't write it that way and changed it to what it is now, and that felt like a complete story. But you guys demanded a sequel, and the Muse came to the party, so here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as the first one (even if the plot probably isn't exactly what you thought it'd be).

Much love, as always, to my dear, dear beta, [ profile] smartalli.

Stiles figures a mild panic attack would be appropriate at this juncture. In the last twenty four hours his life has gone from one extreme (his life being in actual mortal peril) to the other (having sex with Derek friggin Hale), and he can't understand how this has become his life. )

Title: futures that all might start someday
Fandom: Suits
Ship: Harvey/Mike
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: Even as Mike was saying the words he knew it was a mistake. There is no going back from something like that, but maybe that's what he wanted, that self destruction, a final fuck you to Harvey and the world at large. Intellectually and with the wisdom of distance Mike knows he should've done anything other than tell Rachel, that maybe his relationship with Harvey would've been salvageable had it not been for this one last thing. But now he knows that there is no way back from this.
That's it. It's all over. He has officially lost everything he cares about.
Authors Notes: Yet another in the 'Mike's secret gets found out/Mike gets fired/Mike quits' sub-genre which I have written a crazy amount of fic for. One day I will stop writing these fics.

Something to be aware of before reading: Since it's never explicitly stated how long has elapsed in canon (to be honest I'm convinced even the writers don't know) for the purposes of this fic the events of the pilot occurred in June 2011 and the season two finale occurred in February 2012 (this fic takes place directly after the season two finale). Just something to keep in mind throughout the fic.

Title comes from a song by Josh Groban called, appropriately enough, If I Walk Away.

A big thank you to [ profile] smartalli for being my sounding board/beta/fountain of knowledge for all things American/queen of contractions etc etc. I can't even begin to enumerate everything she did for me with this fic. Seriously. I can be the absolute worst sometimes and she somehow manages to put up with me and I don't know how but I love her for it. :O)

For the first time in his ten month tenure at Pearson Hardman, Mike calls in sick. )

Fandom: Suits
Ship: Harvey/Mike
Rating: NC17
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: "I heard what happened," Jessica says.
Harvey nods but avoids her gaze. He figured the Bar Association would report the outcome of their meetings, that Mike had fooled Harvey and all of Pearson Hardman into thinking he was qualified when he wasn't, that Harvey had testified that he had no idea Mike was a fraud. The lie had tasted so bitter on his tongue, and he never imagined lying under oath in this way. He could stomach perjuring himself to protect Mike, but lying to denounce him made his skin crawl.
Authors Notes:This was written during the season two hiatus, so just ignore everything that happened in the last six eps.

I wanna give a big shout out to [ profile] peculiaritea for inadvertently and unknowingly pushing me to continue this fic when I had kinda abandoned it. I hope this makes up for your fandomaid fic being so short. :O)

Much love as always to [ profile] smartalli for the beta. She's the best.

Harvey is so busy winning the battles; it never even occurs to him that he could lose the war. )

Ship: Derek/Stiles
Rating: R
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: Scott explained it to him once. Something about pack dynamics and proximity being conducive to better rest and expedited recuperation after a traumatic incident. All Stiles heard was after shit goes down, we have a sleepover.
Authors Notes: A big shout out to all my tumblr peeps who insisted I watch this show in the first place lol. And, as always, much love to [ profile] smartalli for the beta.

Stiles is always quick on the uptake, but the fact that he recognizes that Derek is offering to share his bed doesn't make it any less ridiculous. )

Rating: PG

Summary: It's like a moment frozen in time, the three of them standing there in a shocked stupor, unable to move or speak. And then, without a word, Harvey closes the door as he walks away.
Authors Notes: Because I didn't like the last scene. Much love to [ profile] smartalli for giving this a quick once-over.

Title: something inevitable
Fandom: Suits
Ship: Harvey/Mike
Rating: NC17
Disclaimer: Say it with me now ~ me ... don't ... own.
Summary: He would be lying if he said he wasn't tempted. Because he has known Mike for a grand total of twenty minutes and already knows that Mike would work hard, could excel if given the chance. And more than that, he likes this kid, his bravado and cheek, the way he can give back as good as he gets. And Harvey only expected to find someone he could tolerate; he never anticipated finding someone he actually liked. But he can't do it. He would be betraying Jessica - she’s done so much for him, more than he could ever enumerate, and hiring someone with no degree is not a fine way to repay her. So as much as he wants to go back, to say, "You're hired, you start on Monday," he can't. He won't. Instead he says, "The coast is clear." [AU in which Harvey doesn't hire Mike in the pilot episode.]
Authors Notes: Ever since I started writing Harvey/Mike fics I wanted to write an AU in which Harvey doesn't hire Mike, but could never really figure out the story. And when I eventually started writing this I got about 4000 words in and hated it. I liked the idea of it, but the execution was just really terrible. When I mentioned this on tumblr, debating whether to just throw it out or keep going, everyone was really supportive, encouraging me to keep writing. So I did something I've never done before - I started the fic again from scratch, and it was ten times better the second time around.
So a big thanks to all my tumblr peeps who encouraged me to keep going (because I probably would have abandoned this fic if it weren't for you guys), and most especially to my dear [ profile] smartalli - who looked at my original draft and was a great sounding board and cheerleader and beta. You are my queen of contractions and I love you and am so very thankful for you.
(Also, LJ sucks and won't let me post this on one entry, so the fic is actually a one shot posted in two entries :O( )

Harvey should just let him go, but instead he finds himself pulling a business card from his suit jacket pocket and, even more incredibly, scribbling his personal cell number on the back before handing it over. )

I accepted the job offer and just resigned my current job.

*quietly has a panic attack*
tattooedsiren: (suits mike)
Remember that job interview I went for last week?

I just got the call. I got it.

And now I am freaking out about whether to accept or not. I mean, yes, I really dislike my job, but I'm worried about moving somewhere smaller and any impact it has on my career in the future. Also, I'm waiting for them to email me the official offer, but I'm worried the salary is going to be less than what I'm on now. I live alone in a house I have a mortgage on, so the money thing is important.

*quietly freaks out*

Since it's currently 2.40pm on a Friday and they are going to email the offer in about an hour I asked if I could think about it over the weekend and let them know on Monday, which they said was fine. (Did I ever mention the job is at the centre my mum used to run and the current ceo has known me since I was in primary school? So it's kinda weird to be going through this formal interview process with someone I have known for 20+ years. But at least I can say 'can I think about it' and know that they will be cool about it.)

There are pro's and con's to accepting and there are pro's and con's to staying where I am. I think what it will probably end up boiling down to is the money.

Would be grateful for any words of wisdom you feel you can impart.

Will let you guys know on Monday what happens.

Ever have one of those days where you just need everyone to keep a minimum of a hundred metres and even when people try and help you it just makes things worse and you are sleep deprived and you just want to go home to bed only you can’t because it’s one of the busiest weeks of the year at work and the phone won’t stop ringing and people just want stuff from you all the time and basically everything just sucks.

Ugh. I really need a new job. I really need a new life.
tattooedsiren: (wizardofoz)
Because there are lots of new peeps, and because it's been so long since I've been around the old peeps have probably forgotten (lol), here be some info about me.

(snagged from [ profile] mskatej)

(fair warning, doing these list type questions is really hard and I'm sure I've forgotten a ton of stuff so this is by no means a comprehensive list, more a list of everything I can think of at this point in time lol)

1. Fandoms: My current fandom is Suits. Previous main fandoms have included Harry Potter, Narnia, Gossip Girl, Roswell. Over the many years in fandom have dabbled in: Merlin, some random RPFs, Doctor Who, Ugly Betty, Jane Eyre (specifically the 2006 mini), Jane Austen, Alias, Star Trek Voyager, Dawson's Creek, and probably some others I've forgotten about lol.

2. OTPS: Harvey/Mike (Suits), Dan/Blair (Gossip Girl), Harry/Ron/Hermione (yes it counts)and Remus/Hermione (Harry Potter), James/Georgie (RPF), Knightley/Emma (Jane Austen), Michael/Maria (Roswell), Sydney/Vaughn (Alias) - I think I have a face ship for practically everything I've ever watched/read, so if you are curious ask me. :O)

the questions continue... )

Look, an old school eljay meme. :O)

Snagged from [ profile] mrsquizzical and [ profile] shocolate.

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's Parker ...she likes money and cereal." I'd love it if everyone who's friended me did this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well.) Then post this in your own journal [only if you feel inclined]. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.

Have at it peeps.
