Christmas 2012

December 24th, 2012 (06:48 am)
calm

feeling: calm

chPeople celebrate the season for a lot of different reasons and a lot of different ways. For me, it is truly a celebration of giving because of the important gift that was given so many years ago.


"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:8-12


In that spirit of giving, I want to wish everyone the best holiday season -- no matter how or why you celebrate :)

In particular, a very merry Christmas to sendintheklowns, lena7142, moogsthewriter, geminigrl11, sophie_deangirl, blackdog_lz, altpointofview, postfallen, sockie1000, eviinsanemonkey and BloodZephyr (on ff.net).

Icons and fic are below the cut :)

The graphics breakdown includes:

17 Primeval
11 Miscellaneous James Murray roles
9 Chaos
8 Hawaii Five-0
8 Skyfall

4 Sherlock
3 Thor
1 Random Tim Blake Nelson

The fic breakdown includes:

Anyone who sees an icon that strikes their fancy is free to snag. Comments make me smile.

Teasers:









FIC






Title: Falls the Shadow

Fandom: Chaos

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos.

A/N: For lena7142. Because nothing says Christmas (or solstice!) like DEATH. Beta provided by postfallen.

Warnings: Death! Seriously. More than one.

Summary: “Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.”

Rick wakes up with a splitting headache.





Title: O Heavy Lightness

Fandom: Chaos

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos.

A/N: For postfallen, whose enthusiasm always brightens my day. With thanks to lena7142 for her beta’ing skills.

Summary: And sitting there, alone in a waiting room, Rick doesn’t even know if his teammate is alive.

Rick doesn’t remember how he got there, but when he blinks, there he is.





Title: A Stoic Mind and a Bleeding Heart

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos.

A/N: For blackdog_lz. Beta given by lena7142.

Summary: Not all emotions are bad. But most of them are.

Casey can’t sit still.





Title: Teachable Moments

Fandom: Chaos

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos.

A/N: For bloodzephyr. This isn’t as elaborate as the prompt given, but I did my best to hit as many of the points as I could :) Beta given by sockie1000

Summary: Some lessons are hard and some lessons are scary and some of it is just weird. There are lessons. But not here.

So, this seems like a good time for another one of our lessons.





Title: It’s Not the Fall that Kills You

Fandom: Chaos

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos.

A/N: For sophie_deangirl. Beta given by lena7142. This is a deathfic, but really, in my mind, there will be a sequel that makes it less so, if I ever get to writing it :)

Warnings: Death.

Summary: The ODS has a mission where the bottom falls out. Literally.

Michael’s always been a runner.





Title: The Office Christmas Party

Fandom: Chaos

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos.

A/N: For altpointofview. Beta given by lena7142.

Summary: The CIA will surprise you yet.

When Rick gets to the party, he is underwhelmed.





Title: Absolute Truths

Fandom: Chaos/Primeval

Disclaimer: I do not own Chaos; I do not own Primeval. At this point, I’m not sure I own anything.

A/N: For eviinsanemonkey, with greatest thanks to sockie1000 for taking the time to beta this. This fic got wildly out of control, but here it is :)

Spoilers: Set Chaos post-series, no specific spoilers. Set vaguely in the later seasons of Primeval, with specific references mostly to S1-S3. I think you can get by without much knowledge of Primeval to understand the fic.

Summary: When anomalies appear in the United States, Michael learns that rifts in time aren’t the only secret that matters to his team.

Being a spy was an important job.





Title: Our Beginnings Never Know Our Ends

Fandom: Primeval

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: For kristen_mara, with thanks to lena7142 for the beta.

Spoilers: Pre series spec.

Summary: It was time to let go of the past, Cutter told himself, and hold onto the future.

There was always works to do.





Title: ...And Shawarma After

Fandom: Avengers

Disclaimer: I do not own the Avengers.

A/N: For moogsthewriter, thanks to lena7142 for the beta.

Spoilers: Missing scene.

Summary: They’re superheroes, but now that they’ve saved the world, it occurs to Steve that they’ve just barely saved themselves -- and each other.

It's not an easy walk.





Title: Two-Way Street

Fandom: H50

Disclaimer: I do not own H50.

A/N: For sockie1000, with thanks to postfallen for the beta.

Spoilers: Set mid S3.

Summary: Capable cops die every day. They die in busts gone wrong, they get killed for revenge. They even get blown up in houses...

You can't be serious.





Title: A Trip to the Pub

Fandom: Merlin

Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

A/N: For geminigrl11, with thanks to sendintheklowns for the beta.

Spoilers: Vaguely set in later seasons.

Summary: When Arthur takes him to the pub, Merlin assumes the worst.

This is Arthur after all.
