Title: Positive Associations
Author: Almighty Hat
Fandom: Jurassic World
Characters: Indominus Rex, Jorge Gutiérrez (original male character)
Word Count: 3,481
Rating: PG-13 for language and references to animal abuse/neglect
Pairing(s): None
Warnings: Jurassic World spoilers, animal abuse/neglect, offscreen canonical violence, offscreen canonical death (human and animal), and I talk about dogfight rings, neglected elephants and parrots, and the horrifying history of Shamu, but it's all fairly lightly touched on. If you could handle Jurassic World, you can probably handle this... but you might feel bad about bits of Jurassic World you only cheered about in the theatre. This has an oblique unhappy ending.

Author's Notes: I made a joke, and then I immediately made the joke tragic. I'm a terrible person.


"Her only positive association is with that crane."

That's not entirely accurate. How do they clean the Indominus Rex enclosure?

A joke concept turned tragic, in two acts.

There are many things she doesn’t know. )
Title: Pay It Forward
Author: Almighty Hat
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe (Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier)/Marvel 616 (Scarlet Spider)
Characters: Aracely, Bucky, Kaine
Word Count: 4,368
Rating: PG for memories of violence and some language
Pairing(s): None
Warnings: There are three people in this. None of them are okay. Two of them once woke up buried in piles of corpses, one of them has spent the last seventy years getting mindwiped more often than bathed. Just... be aware of that. And of SPOILERS FOR CA2: THE WINTER SOLDIER.

Author's Notes: So I saw CA2:TWS on Friday, and gushed about it to Celaeno that night, so she saw it Saturday afternoon, and then this happened:

Celaeno: The thing I imagined there was post-movie, he and Kaine having a grump-off in some coffee shop. Why? I don't know. But it was the mental image I got.
Almighty Hat: ... Primus on a pogo stick, Bucky and Aracely. I think I just hurt something in my brain.

Sunday morning I had a first draft written.

This is not my fault. This is a crack premise that invaded my brain and refused to let go until I took it seriously. There is no way to make the timelines work out seamlessly, because comics, but this is definitely after Aracely and Kaine leave Houston for Mazatlán, but before they fall in with the New Warriors because I don't know what's going on there yet.

The viewpoint character is a mind reader. This occasionally makes the narrative weird. Also, coherent continuity is something that happens to other people.

Summary: Aracely hears people's thoughts.

Kaine really doesn't want to be a superhero.

Yasha only has maybe a week and a half's worth of memories, but he'd really like to keep them this time.

One thing about hearing people’s thoughts was that it was constant. )

Tabula Rasa

Apr. 7th, 2014 11:21 pm
Title: Tabula Rasa
Author: Almighty Hat
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe (Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier)
Characters: The Winter Soldier, mentions of Steve Rogers, references to a slew of secondary characters.
Word Count: 1,174
Rating: G, but G with reservations
Pairing(s): None
Warnings: Damaged viewpoint character, passive voice, stylistic repetition, bleakness (look, the only actual character is the Winter Soldier, you know what you're in for) and pretty much all the CA2: The Winter Soldier SPOILERS.

Author's Notes: I have been emotionally compromised by Sebastian Stan's face. Also I may have taken some inadvertant liberties with museum layout.

Summary: I think the best way to avoid spoilers in the summary is to say that I will never understand why people leave Marvel Studios movies before the credits have finished rolling.

He knew me. )
Title: Up On The Roof
Author: Almighty Hat
Fandom: Monster High (webisodes, doll diaries, and TV specials set to 'frappe')
Characters: Deuce Gorgon, Rochelle Goyle, Roux; mentions of Medusa, Cleo De Nile: exceedingly brief mentions of Frankie Stein, Perseus the rat, Smokey
Word Count: 2,448 (excluding author's note and diary entry)
Rating: G
Pairing(s): Background Cleo/Deuce, potential pre-Deuce/Rochelle
Warnings: Exceedingly G-rated false pretenses; gratuitous French
Author's Notes: Yes, I am aware Rochelle using Roux to get Deuce up to the roof with her was problematic. I'm disappointed in her, but I'm rolling with it as a thing that happened. The text of the relevant diary entry and more extensive author's notes follow the vignette.
Summary: The events of Rochelle's diary entry from October 19th... from Deuce's point of view. When a gargoyle griffin steals his ball and gives it to the one person he can safely look at, Deuce figures there's no harm in hanging out for a little while.

Roux, qu'est-ce que tu as là? Où avez-vous eu ça? )

This is tagged 'gen' because it's all from Deuce's point of view, and Deuce is a little oblivious when girls aren't devastatingly obvious about their crushes on him.
Title: A-Wassailing
Fandom: Transformers 2007 Movie
Characters: Lennox family, Witwicky family, Mikaela, Miles, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Tracks, Perceptor
Word Count: 2,663
Rating: G
Warnings: Festivity, and a ladder.
Author's Notes: Merry Christmas to Emily, this is for her. Tracks hanging out with Mikaela is an idea I'll be making use of in another fic, but I like their chemistry; Perceptor and Miles as The Odd And Yet Totally Awesome Couple (not that kind of couple, this is not that kind of Christmas fic) is shamelessly burgled from Naturalized, a completely awesome work-in-progress that has me alternating between ded from laff and hanging on the edge of my seat. (I can rec in my author's notes if I wanna.) Also, despite the title, no one sings.

Summary: Four vignettes, no excessive sentiment. The thing about Christmas is that it's not just a holiday, it's a cultural phenomenon-- and the Transformers have been dropped into a new culture.

Here we come a-wassailing, among the leaves so green; here we come a-wand'ring, so fair to be seen. )

Author's Notes, 2013: I no longer know where to find the story Naturalized, I'm sorry. Also, although I have tagged this 'gen' (it's not a romance fic), it does have background ships of Judy/Ron and Will/Sarah. It's probably Jossed, too, considering I have no idea whether some of the G1 characters I borrowed a) turned up in Dark of the Moon and/or b) survived Dark of the Moon. ... Hell, I have no idea if the movie characters I borrowed survived Dark of the Moon.

Title: Expectancy
Fandom: Transformers 2007 Movie
Characters: Bumblebee, Sam, Mojo
Word Count: Short.
Rating: G
Warnings: Still no major spoilers for Transformers, somehow. Slightly mopey subject matter.
Author's Notes: I keep rats as pets. Depending on genetics and health, they live between two and four and a half years. This fic is thus dedicated to my fifteen-month-old rattie girls Badger, Ninja, and Jojo, and to their late predecessors, Captain Hello McStumpy, Eeep, and Swish.
Disclaimer: Transformers and all related indicia are property of Hasbro/Takara. No profit is made from this fanfiction and no copyright infringement is intended. A vague disclaimer is nobody's friend.
Summary: It's not easy, loving them, but we do it because we can't do anything else.

The day Mojo got his cast taken off, Bumblebee had to ask a few questions. )

Author's Notes, 2013: I no longer keep rats as pets. They make great pets, but I've never had one live much longer than two years, and that gets really wearing.

Hot Wheels

Jul. 9th, 2007 05:28 pm
Title: Hot Wheels
Fandom: Transformers 2007 Movie/Knight Rider
Characters: Second verse, same as the first.
Word Count: I have failed to count. Short, but longer than Nice Car.
Rating: G
Warnings: Still no real spoilers for Transformers, somehow.

Summary: Green light means go go go!

Author's Notes: This time, I can't blame Emily for this one. Instead, I'll blame the boys who really wanted to race. And I'll thank Lyn, because she could think of car songs and what would happen if Kitt needed to go even faster.

Disclaimer: Transformers and all related indicia are property of HasTak and Paramount Pictures; Knight Rider and all related indicia are property of Glen Larson and Universal Studios Television. No copyright infringement is intended and no profit is made. A vague disclaimer is nobody's friend.

It was Mikaela, of course, who had suggested they leave the parking lot-- Mikaela was smart that way. )

Author's Notes, 2013: I had fun writing this one, and re-reading it to post. Fair warning, although it's tagged 'gen,' there is a lot of half-silly car-lust in this ficlet. (A third ficlet was planned and is half-written, but I never managed to find a good note to end on.)

Nice Car

Jul. 8th, 2007 05:17 pm
Title: Nice Car
Fandom: Transformers 2007 Movie/Knight Rider crossover
Characters: Bumblebee, Mikaela, Sam, Michael, Kitt
Word Count: I have failed to count. Short.
Rating: G
Warnings: Gratuitous F-body description
Summary: Really, when you get right down to it, isn't everybody a little more than meets the eye?

Author's Notes: For Emily, because it is ALL HER FAULT. Her fault. Not mine. I just get these mental images. She puts them there.

Disclaimer: Transformers and all related indicia are property of HasTak and Paramount Pictures; Knight Rider and all related indicia are property of Glen Larson and Universal Studios Television. No copyright infringement is intended and no profit is made. A vague disclaimer is nobody's friend.

Two sports cars sat in the parking lot of the fast-food restaurant, low-slung and sleek. )

Author's Notes, 2013: This was my first foray into Transformers fanfiction, and I think it's held up well. What TF Movieverse fic I've written is all solidly based around the first movie; I didn't like the second and haven't seen the third, so I'm content to be solidly Jossed a lot of the time.
