Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
falling [Ben/Katie NaNo]

seaQuest: Tarnished [PG, Hitchcock, suggested Krieg/Hitchcock]

since kaige68 said the word go.... ;)

This is sort of a prequel to my 2013 NaNo novel (which will eventually be better outlined, cleaned up and written properly!), The Darkest Hour. It's also some fun speculation on my part as to how my secondary OTP on this show ended up divorced (because they never said why!!) Those fandoms where we do all the work, I swear.... :P

This was written for theme/monthly challenges at two other forums but also fits the Cry Me a River prompt "Finally", so there you have it :D

and now for the interested reader--pick your poison location!:
LJ * FFN * AO3

feedback is welcome even if you are fandom-blind (because this is pre-canon in a fandom with very little background info provided, canon almost doesn't apply!)

August Rush: Collective Creations - Week Four

My goodness, you guys, you've done so well! Here we are at the end of the graphics for August Rush, and there has been a wealth of things made by those taking part in the challenge!

You still have until the 31st to catch up on any you missed but really wanted to do - you can link them here when you're done, and then, once midnight PST on the 31st has passed, I will do a final count-up and let you know what our total numbers are. I'll also let you know then who's up for completion and participation banners for their efforts!

And hopefully I have them all now. If yours hasn't shown up in a weekly round-up, comment with a link in this entry, and I'll make sure it's counted!
