New Fic: Fortune Favors The Bold   Recently updated !

(AO3 Link) Fortune Favors The Bold (Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat) J/D A/U 26,000 wds Summary:  An alternate version of my fic, “The Other Side of Slave.”  Daniel has been kidnapped and held as a slave for eight months.  The only thing he dreams about, aside from telling Jack he loves him, is payback.  Lots and lots of payback.  But after he’s rescued, will anyone let him get it? Warning: Graphic Depictions of Violence.  There are suggestions of rape but no rape (by slavers).  There is a story about a rape, but nothing current.

New Fic: Mirror Mirror: Reflections

Sequel to Mirror, Mirror. (AO3 link) Mirror, Mirror: Reflections (AO3 Link) 53,000 words A/U J/D SUMMARY: Something is wrong, and J/D need to find yet another reality.  It has its problems too, and nearly just as bad.  Daniel is forced to play into the hands of a psychopath in order to expose the Goa’uld infiltration of Earth. WARNING: Sexual Assault.  It is insidious. The victim thinks they want sex but they aren’t in their right mind. If they were, they would refuse.

A Word About Sexually Explicit Fics 4

A couple of ladies (I won’t use their names) have asked why I “have to” put sex in all fics, and write it so explicitly. Here’s the answer: I like writing it. I’m not doing this for readers alone.  I enjoy writing.  I think I’ve gotten a lot better at it, but then it’s all in the eye of the beholder. I don’t get a lot of feedback, and of the FB I get, there has never been a complaint about sex.  Although most people aren’t “confrontational” — aka, giving criticism.  Maybe it’s a fandom thing. So if the sex bothers you, you’ll find a lot of wonderful G-rated/PG-rated fics from other authors at Archive of Our Own.  Their search feature is excellent. 🙂  

Working on Mirror Mirror Sequel & Other Fics 2

Hi. I intended the fic, “Mirror, Mirror”, to be a one-off.  Mostly because when I was done, that was the only thing the bunny muse gave me.  But then a fella on FB said he’d be interested in a sequel so I started thinking about it.  Four days later, I had a little bunny.  A few days after that, I was writing.  I wrote about 30 pages, then deleted 15 because I wasn’t happy with the extreme slant I took. I’m now on page 58.  This fic will likely have 90-100. The name of this sequel is “Mirror, Mirror: Reflections”.  Here’s hoping you like what I’ve done there.  I won’t give a time table.  I always miss them.  Just know I’m working on it. …. I’m also working on: Chrysalis 5 Intervals Betwixt 5 Trilogy 15 and a few other new standalone ideas. I’m happy the muse is back in full force.  I’ll take advantage of it. 🙂


Jack and Daniel’s Wedding Effects Wallpapers.  You can see the link in the Top Menu, too. Have put up some J/D Wedding wallpapers, all the same but of differing colors.  Hope you like them. They have a load time that’s annoying and I apologize for that.  I had a choice between a low quality/low size and high quality/higher size.  Example, 600kb vs 1.3mb.  

New Fic: Intervals Betwixt 4: The Play’s the Thing
