My website is back online! By the Pen is now here. It has a less pretty URL, but is otherwise completely unchanged.

I've changed all links to point to the new site - or at least I think I have. If you come across any broken links, please do let me know.

Unfortunately, my website will be down for a while - I'm looking for a new host and haven't found the time to look into all the possibilities yet.

In the meantime, almost all of my stories are available on AO3.

My X-Files novel "The Gift of an Enemy" is the only exception - if that's the story you want, just drop me a line and I'll send it to you.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Title: The Fall of Magneto
Author: Sylvia / [personal profile] rheasilvia
Pairing: Charles/Erik.
Rating: Not rated.
Disclaimer: Not my characters.
Story Notes: Mild crack based on X-Men First Class; story length ~1,400 words. Inspired by [personal profile] analise010's prompt "fall".

Summary: Erik falls. Charles is there to catch him. And it all ends up on Youtube the next morning.


The Fall of Magneto

"Pathetic," sneers Erik. The Mutant Control forces down on the street have found even more guns to point up at him.

He turns a little more into the wind, making his cape flare out dramatically. "Pathetic, vicious little creatures. Do you really think your weapons can help you now? We are the future of this world, and you are its past."

It's a good speech, and he knows for a fact that at least two cameras are recording him right now. The MC routinely record all encounters… as do the X-Men. Which makes it a particular pity that Erik never gets to finish.

"If you will not adapt," Erik intones sonorously, "then you must d–"

Title: The Persistence of Iron
Author: Sylvia / [personal profile] rheasilvia
Pairing: Charles/Erik
Rating: Rated PG-13.
Betaed by [personal profile] solo and csad. Thank you again!
Disclaimer: Not my characters.
Story Notes: AU based on X-Men First Class; story length ~48,000 words. Written for the [profile] xmenreversebang challenge, and inspired by the lovely art prompt by [profile] tindu.

Summary: Waking up in a lab with no memories and a blue-eyed stranger calling him by someone else's name is only the beginning of Erik's problems.


The Persistence of Iron



Searing heat. A roar of deafening noise. An irresistible, inestimable torrent of impact or agony that buffets him from everywhere at once, tears at him, crushes him; breaks him apart. He can't breathe, can't move, can't think, can't

"Max? Max!"

Falling.

He wakes with a gasp and a whole-body jerk, breath seizing in his throat.

Title: Trials of a Teenage Deity
Author: Sylvia / [personal profile] rheasilvia
Pairing: Christ/Christ
Rating: PG-13
Note: This cracky ficlet is the result of a conversation I had with [personal profile] glitterburn about one of my pet peeves - that fannish authors will persist in using "mein Leib" as a translation for "my love". I feel like I should apologize. Uhm. Sorry?

Warning: Do not read if you are Christian and likely to be offended by irreverence.


The worst part of incarnating was puberty. )


A note of explanation:

Though frequently used as the translation for "my love", "mein Leib" actually means "my body", and is part of the ritual words spoken during the Eucharist in Catholic Mass.

Incidentally, "mein Lieb" does not work as a translation of "my love", either.

It is a weighty, age-old question: If your OTP characters are in different parts of a grocery store but have visual contact, can A convey to B – without shouting – that A wants B to pick up some broccoli?

The famous "broccoli test" – as far as I know – was originally devised by Starsky&Hutch and/or The Professionals fans, as a telling measure of a pairing's rapport (or characteristic communication problems, as the case may be).

But I ask you, where on earth are all the stories? The subject is fairly shouting out for fiction. Pass or fail, there should be stories! So, here's my attempt to show how things might play out for one of my pairings.

The Broccoli Conundrum: Junno and Ryo )

What about your pairings of choice? Do they pass or fail the broccoli test? Write! Show me! Ask all your friends! For the love of broccoli! :-)

Also, because I can, a poll!
Poll #1340 Junno, Ryo and the Problem of Broccoli

Or: Nishikido Ryo's Life as a Korean Drama. Featuring an annoying cast of practical jokers, Eito with an unhealthy interest in other people's love lives, and compulsive snugglers.

Disclaimer: This is pure fiction.
Pairing: Taguchi Junnosuke / Nishikido Ryo
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sex

Story notes: Originally written for the [livejournal.com profile] je_fqfest 2009 for [livejournal.com profile] diamondsofsix. Slightly less than 8.000 words.

Summary: It's all Pi's fault... Pi and his stupid pranks. Because instead of Ryo's bag and Ryo's bed, Room 8 holds a horde of loud and drunken KinKi Kids and Arashi members, none of whom are in any state to question, although the loudest and most drunken one does try to get Ryo in a headlock and/or offer him some sake.

This story would be very different – and much worse – without you. [livejournal.com profile] solo____ deserves special thanks for going above and beyond.

Summary:
Detectives Nishikido Ryo and Taguchi Junnosuke go undercover in a gay BDSM club run by the mob. Ryo is not happy about this, though not for the reasons you might expect.

What is it about sparkly dancing boys? Not only have I abandoned my traditional, neatly linear style of writing – I am also fragmenting in other ways! I currently have six (in numbers: 6!) unfinished stories pending in JE fandom.

My insanity, let me show you it. There is:

  1. The Epic, which is over 100.000 words long so far but is currently resting because of:

  2. The would-be PWP AU (because, seriously, every fandom needs an "undercover in a gay bar" story), which has considerably more plot than a PWP should and which started out as:

  3. The FuQFest story (mark two, because the above-mentioned story got away from me), which so far coyly insists on being all plot and no porn. And which is slightly further along than:

  4. The random story idea that ambushed me the other day, which features sparkly dancing boys being bad at sex, and which followed:

  5. The random story idea that ambushed me a couple of weeks ago, which features sparkly dancing boys being good at some non-sexual things and bad at others, but for which I have mysteriously found no time so far (gee, I wonder why??). And lastly, there is:

  6. The "Highlander" Crossover (because that is another staple every fandom needs), which I rediscovered on an USB stick today, much to my surprise, because I had forgotten about it.
… gah?

In an effort to reduce the madness at least slightly, I have declared the HL crossover a Snippet That Will Go No Further. So, without further ado:


Highlander. The Sparkly Years.

Featuring KAT-TUN. No sparkly boys were (permanently) harmed during the writing of this fic. )

Seen at [livejournal.com profile] ignipes' LJ:

Give me two characters from different fandoms you know I'm familiar with, and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.

I'm changing this slightly to include only fandoms I like, so as to minimize potential problem sources in writing these. :-) If you don't know what fandoms I know and like: My LJ interests are far from being a complete list, but they're a place to start. Also, anything I've ever talked or written about in a positive way is fair game.

There are some characters that refuse to talk to me, but I will do my best. *g*

Characters: Dean, Sam
Spoilers: none
Rating: G (all audiences)
Story notes: gen, slightly less than 2,000 words. Mild crack. Something odd is going on with Dean - Sam suspects the Viking.

Betaed by [profile] solo____ , who probably shouldn't have encouraged me. *g* Thank you very much!


Sisterhood

It was the Viking who started it. Sam didn't realize it at the time, but looking back, it was definitely the Viking.

The first inkling that something was off hit Sam much later, though – right about the time that Dean charged into the middle of a conjuring circle, unceremoniously smashed the vessel (a big vase with a garish floral design), and then lectured the assembled Zisa-worshipping witches on how this was all down to "women getting stupid notions into their head because of emancipation and stuff".

Conjuring up an ancient spirit of war and destruction was definitely a stupid notion, no argument there. But Sam didn't really get where "emancipation and stuff" came in. Judging by Dean's rambling speech, his brother didn't, either, so after they'd dealt with the witches Sam held Dean down, poured some holy water down his throat, and checked for bumps on the skull, suspicious bruises, or other clues.

Everything seemed okay, though (except for Sam's breathing, but that was normal when you'd just caught an elbow to the stomach and were being mock-throttled by your brother).

Into the Jungle

The first time John saw Mary, he hardly noticed her – not her as a person. He just saw a round-eyed woman in fatigues, the drab, shapeless green revealing only hints of curves when she moved.

Later, he was never sure it really had been Mary.

Arachnophobia

Sam was laughing, the bastard. Blood running down his face and bones crunching underneath his feet and one arm stuck to the wall and the giant black hairy corpse leaking something foul onto the ground right next to him – and Sam was *laughing.*

Gojyo heard them from about a mile away. They'd parked their car by the side of the road, made a lot of noise rummaging around the trunk, and then set off through the woods, heading pretty much straight for the lake.

Huh. Gojyo's senses weren't usually quite this sharp. Must be something about the water. )
