Title: All the Things Money Can't Buy
Characters/Pairings: Shiro and Keith, Allura
Summary: Keith just needs a little help with the rent; Shiro's just a little lonely. This is just a brief, mutually beneficial financial arrangement, that's all. Really.
Notes: This is my entry for the Sheith Big Bang. I will be editing in the art shortly. I was lucky enough to be paired with two artists, Mishy of Mishy Draws and Liz of the comic Adrastus. 45,618 words; adult for smut.

If he were the melodramatic type, he'd be asking himself how he'd gotten himself into this mess, but Keith is too pragmatic for that. He knows exactly how he got to this place: it's called having a short temper and no patience for bullshit, which make for a really bad combination with an asshole boss who never liked him to begin with, even before Keith had called him out for playing favorites with the other clerks. )

Title: Like Mr. and Mrs. Smith (But Totally Not)
Characters/Pairings: Aomine/Kuroko, Momoi, Kagami, Alex, Imayoshi, Susa, Wakamatsu, Sakurai
Summary: The one where Aomine's a hitman and Momoi's his handler and Kuroko is his target, and y'see, that's where it all gets kinda complicated...
Notes: You know that movie with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Kinda like that. But not. Hitman AU; adult for guns, smut, violence, and Em indulging the hell out of herself. 27,989 words.

'This one will be easy, you said. Practically a cakewalk, you said. No problems at all, you said. Hah!' Satsuki jammed a fresh clip into her Beretta, took a breath, and then threw herself around the corner, firing steadily to cover her retreat. )

Title: The Art of Hoping
Characters/Pairings: Imayoshi/Momoi; Aomine/Kuroko preslash
Summary: Momoi has her eye on Imayoshi and is pretty sure he's got his eye on her, but before they can do anything about that, they've got this pesky thing called the Winter Cup to win.
Notes: General audiences. In the universe where Kuroko went to Touou with Momoi and Aomine as described in "Can't Hold On, Can't Let Go," this is how the Winter Cup might go. A document of all the original characters I use may be found here. 45,513 words.

Many, many thanks to Branch and Andrea for reading the draft of this beast and cheering me on when I was slogging through the pits of basketball despair.

She'd worried about the boys for a while, but she'd been right after all. Touou had been the right choice for all three of them. When the Winter Cup started up next week, it would go differently than the Interhigh had. Satsuki had the data to prove it. )

Title: Can't Hold On, Can't Let Go
Characters: Aomine, Momoi, Kuroko, Imayoshi, Kagami, Kise, Akashi
Summary: This is the one where Aomine is the one who has to find a way to reach Kuroko and persuade him that basketball can be fun, instead of vice versa.
Notes: General audiences. No pairings here, but in my head, this is totally AoKuro pre-slash. Title adapted from Cloud Cult's song "Best Friend." 43,647 words.

A while back, I solicited drabble prompts over on Tumblr. This fic comes from a prompt from [ profile] skyfireflies asking to see to see what would have happened if Kuroko had gone to Touou with Aomine and Momoi. As I said then, it was the kind of thing that I couldn't imagine having happened without a couple of things changing... and that it was the kind of thing that really needed to be more than a drabble. Yep, I was right.

My thanks to Branch and Andrea and Traci for reading the draft of this beast as I was putting it together and for cheerleading and providing feedback as I worked. It would not be the fic it is without them.

Satsuki must have known—Satsuki always knew everything, it was what she did—but Daiki had been in high school for a solid two weeks before he realized that Tetsu was at Touou, too. He found out by accident, when he rounded a corner too fast and slammed right into someone and knocked him down. Daiki was complaining and apologizing and reaching a hand down to pull the guy up before it sank in that that was Tetsu's face over the school blazer and tie, Tetsu's flat expression gazing back at him. )

Title: Bird on a Wire
Characters/Pairings: Aomine/Kuroko; Kuroko/Kagami; Aomine/Kise; Momoi Satsuki; Midorima Shintarou; Murasakibara Atsushi
Summary: Aomine's very bad day, and what happened after. Or, it takes a village to raise Aomine.
Notes: Alternate careers AU; adult for smut; pining and bittersweetness. 41,169 words.

This fic has its own theme song, "Bird on a Wire," which is also the source of the epigraph and (obviously) the title.

With deepest appreciation for [personal profile] branchandroot, who always helps me untangle the thorniest plot tangles, and [personal profile] andreaphobia, whose unrelenting enthusiasm for this fic made it particularly easy to keep up the writing momentum.

'What the fuck,' Daiki said, blank with shock, and so the first thing Tetsu said to him after five years was 'I'm sorry, but please don't use language like that on school grounds.' )

Title: Bloodsport
Characters: Gokudera, Yamamoto, Ryouhei, Shamal, Tsuna, Hibari, Lambo, Squalo
Summary: Gokudera knows that this can't possibly end well.
Warnings: AU with vampires; angst, violence, fangsex, death. No pairings but plenty of subtext. 27,707 words.
Notes: Once upon a time, [profile] readerofasaph posted the beginnings of a fic about Yamamoto hunting vampires and running around all bloody, and asked someone else to take it off her hands. I flailed at her excitedly in the comments, because it was a shiny premise and I wanted more. After a quick exchange, I posted a brief snippet for her, with the caveat that "mind you, i have no idea what the context of this is, so. this is probably all you're getting."

Those were, shall we say, famous last words.

We exchanged several world-building sorts of comments, then we both got busy and distracted, and the whole thing fell dormant for a few weeks... until [profile] readerofasaph's birthday, where she inquired, hopefully, about a continuation to the vampire fic. Her request was felicitously timed, the stars were right, and over the course of about two weeks, I churned out something like twenty-five thousand words to build on what [profile] readerofasaph had started, while she and [personal profile] branchandroot cheered me on and helped me plot and world-build and contributed bits and pieces when I got stuck. This is the end result of that: we hope very much that you enjoy it!

The summer after his father's death, Yamamoto Takeshi started baiting vampires. It was a trendy game that year, a little fringe but with that tinge of the romantic, and not a few cool kids were getting into it. So far nobody at their school had died, which Gokudera Hayato thought was a great pity. )
