Title: I Let My Oars Fall Into The Water
Pairing: Sam/various, Sam/Gene
Rating: Hard R / Brown Cortina
Wordcount: 4,401 (It, er, got away from me)

Warnings: Um, you've read the Hookerverse right? Unbetaed due to sheer shame, I apologize for any mistakes in advance.

Disclaimer: LoM belongs to Kudos and the BBC. The venerable magnum opus that is the Hookerverse is the wicked, beautiful child of [livejournal.com profile] darthfi and [livejournal.com profile] m31andy, who are also the suitable address for any complaints. The title comes from Jennifer Michael Hecht's poem 'September.'

A/N: Feeling quite heartbroken by the demise of the much beloved Hookerverse, I seem to have accidentally written this 'epilogue'. I'm not much for AU's, never have been. And so I was caught completely off guard by how quickly I fell for this 'verse, for a concept that should never have survived beyond a few cracktastic ficlets. But then it went and sunk its nails into my heart with its brilliant execution and consistency and (don't smack me) vision. And then all of a sudden it was over and, well, this happened.

As I'm typing this out I still don't really believe that I'll be able to muster up the bravado to post this, but if you're reading this I guess I have. And now I need a drink. And for nobody to look at me for a while. For the record - this is the perfect ending for this series as far as I’m concerned.

Title: At the Round Earth's Imagined Corners
Fandom: Life on Mars
Pairing: Sam/Gene, The Test Card Girl
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: You not see show, you not read fic
Words: 2,457
Disclaimer: Life on Mars belongs to Kudos and the BBC. Title and epigraph come of course from John Donne's Holy Sonnets VII and X, respectively.
A/N: For the 07' Life on Mars ficathon, written for [livejournal.com profile] m31andy who wanted the Test Card Girl, motivations and 'I never said it would be easy.' This is a sort of a splicing of two requests, sorry, I'm horrid at following instructions. God knows I’m usually nervous enough about the writing itself but then there was that whole added factor of writing for Andy… and, well, she and Fi renewed my interest in this fandom so... well, I hope you like it.

Yeesh, it's been such a long time since I did a public post, this feels kind of weird.

Tuesday was the hardest, Tuesday was so many different shades of terrible all at once. I knew everyone was seeing it, everyone already knew what I could not.

I was thankful for every work shift I had this week as it spared me from staring numbly at my laptop, counting blue torrent lines.

Dawn broke this morning during my night shift and I was sitting with my feet on the desk, grateful that I live in the Middle East (and that doesn't happen often) because it means I still get to smoke indoors. I don't remember who wrote a fic that had Sam as an ex-smoker who got tired of 'shivering in doorways' but that thought frightened me as much as it had Gene I suppose.

And I couldn’t get rid of that lump in my throat at the idea of coming home to see it. And the thing is.... this finale isn't like other finales. This could end everything. And not in that stupid - oh, this is how the canon says it ends. But really honestly change everything, every single fic ever written may be reduced to ashes, there may be nothing to write about in the future because none of them may have ever existed in the first place.

But it is actually the idea of fic, and the desire to read everything that had been written since the finale, that compelled me to stop behaving like a child and sit down with a bowl, comfort cereal, milk, a full pack of Luckies and an almost full bottle of Diet Coke. And press play.

The obligatory finale rant o' death, careful all ye' who enter )
