Title: Magical Connections [FF.NET] [AO3]
Pairing: ZelgadisxAmelia
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance/Drama/Humor
Word Count: 5,547
Summary: Zelgadis finally finds his cure, but with the loss of his talisman like chimera body comes the loss of most of his magical capacity. Luckily he was already on his way to Saillune to resume his position as Amelia’s bodyguard. Maybe she can help him out with his dilemma? Of course she can!
Author's Note: This is a rewrite of an extremely old fic. Over eleven years old, actually. The original was never finished, and it's also entirely different from this version. Anyway I got into Slayers again recently and was just massively inspired to do this. It should run three to five chapters, I'd say?

Zelgadis was chasing fairytales... )

Summary: Ace pilot America is on a mission for the World Military when a chance encounter with a group of sky-pirates leads him to team up with their captain, England, against a malevolent group that wants to fill the sky with zeppelins. [USxUK- Steampunk AU]
Chapter Summary: “Anyway, the other thing I considered was… and you’ll probably think this is dorky, but I thought it was an amazing idea for a moment. My favorite comic book character, the Aquila Avenger? But then I realized that maybe that’s a bad idea because--- “

Finland’s jaw dropped and he practically jumped in excitement. “The Aquila Avenger? That’s a great idea!”

America shot him a confused look. “I-I decided it was a bad idea because… well I’m not really representing Aquila any longer. Treason against the military is considered,” he lowered his voice, sounding ashamed, “treason against your country. You’re no longer a citizen.”
Author's Note: So yes, an update. I don't really know what to say. This fic is still really special to me, and I have every intention of finishing it. I hope that you'll follow me to the end of this journey, and I hope that won't be too much longer. *laugh*

This is the perfect time to go for the Kosmider base. They’ll never know we’re coming. We’ve been handed a huge advantage. )

Word Count: 3,273
Summary: Arthur is spending a normal summer at his father's beach house in Cape Cod, when he encounters the extraordinary in the form of an enthusiastic young merman named Alfred, who holds an intense curiosity for Arthur. Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: Arthur would have laughed and told him that “you’re hardly one to think things through.” And okay, maybe he was right. Maybe most of the time Alfred did just kind of charge head on into things, but… that’s not what he was going to do here.

A hero had to adapt themselves appropriately for the situation after all, and that’s exactly what he was going to do. He had a plan. And that plan began with Arthur’s mother. Alfred had finally mastered the masking spell, and just in time, because she had arrived the previous day, and he was going to meet her that afternoon.
Author's Note: WOW an update. Hope you enjoy! This fic is kicking into the long haul. I would imagine about six more chapters?

Katyusha- Ukraine

To Alfred at least, everything was going perfectly. He couldn’t imagine a better summer, a better thing to be happening to him... )

Title: Atlantis is Waiting [ FF.NET LINK ]
Pairing/Character(s): AmericaxEngland. Minor SwedenxFinland.
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance/Adventure/Sci-Fi/AU
Word Count: 4,782
Summary: Alfred F. Jones has always dreamed of finding Atlantis, and he's put his life's work into making it happen. But when he finally joins an expedition and discovers the lost empire, he finds that there are many more mysteries to be solved within the kingdom itself. And one of the mysteries, that being Atlantis's Prince Arthur, fascinates Alfred much more than the others. [Based on the Disney film- Atlantis: The Lost Empire]
Note: This is being written for the [livejournal.com profile] usxuk Secret Santa. My recipient is [livejournal.com profile] kurusa7227, and I hope she enjoys this. The prompt was for a sci-fi AU, and I chose to do a story based on Disney’s Atlantis. It is NOT necessary to have seen the movie to read this story. You should be able to understand it perfectly without any previous knowledge. In addition, the story is based on Atlantis, not an exact copy. So don’t be alarmed when things are altered in places. This story will be done by the end of the month. I hope you all enjoy!

Chapter Summary: America leaned forward and pressed his finger to the map, working to pinpoint the coordinates on the aged and stained piece of parchment before him.

“We’ll need to go up far north, almost to the pole. It’s crazy that they’d build something up that far. It’s cold and dangerous, and there are all those mountains, but hell, the Kosmider doesn’t seem to shy away from crazy…”
Author's Note: There aren't enough apologies in the world for the lack of fic updates recently. I have had... so many issues, but I still don't think that's a fair enough excuse. I love you all, and I still love all of my stories. I just haven't been able to dedicate to them the time they deserve. Hopefully I can do that now. Thanks so much for sticking around if you're still here. I do have some fanarts that I need to update my resource post with, and I'll get to that soon. Also, I know I pimped it once before, but I do have a FIC TUMBLR. I post fic snippets, artwork, resource stuff, and random misc. for all of my fics over there. Feel free to follow it!

America here was just talking to us about the location of this Kosmider base. It sounds like a deathtrap, but that’s nothing we can’t handle. )

Summary: Alfred and Arthur were marked by fate to rule the Kingdom of Spades together, but while Alfred accepted his role, Arthur rebelled against it and went into hiding. Now Alfred is searching the kingdom for his queen, and when he finds him, he also finds himself falling in love.
Note: Oh boy. This is for [livejournal.com profile] yaoishadow66613, who was one of the two winners of my charity auction at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. She wanted a fic centering on the ArteStella cardverse. The auction was just for a oneshot of 1k or more, but it ended up being... much larger. This is part one of two, and the second part should be posted this week.

Summary: Arthur is spending a normal summer at his father's beach house in Cape Cod, when he encounters the extraordinary in the form of an enthusiastic young merman named Alfred, who holds an intense curiosity for Arthur. Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: He blew a string of bubbles from his mouth, exasperated. “Well… it’s not like us. There aren’t that many merpeople in the world, and a lot of the ones that are out there, we’ll never meet. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of us are really awesome, but the selection is kind of… limited,” Alfred began. “There are billions of people in the world. Arthur says there are like three hundred million in America alone! We watched a video about it…”

“A video?” Toris raised his eyebrows, quizzically.

Alfred laughed. “On a pho--- oh, never mind. I’ll explain that part later. Anyway, because of that, because they meet so many other people, a lot of them take longer to… you know…” his cheeks reddened, “choose someone.”

Toris nodded. “Humans are strange...”

“Yeah, but it’s sort of awesome,” Alfred laughed.
Author's Note: Hello everyone! I wanted to get some fic updates in earlier this month, but I've been pretty stressed with stuff. *^^* Also, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] luvpixel for this adorable fanart of America.

Title: Finding Freedom [FF.NET Chapter 6] [ Writing Journal Previous Chapters ]
Pairing: AmericaxEngland (Also: GreecexJapan)
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance/Humor/Drama/Alternate Universe/Action
Word Count: 4,192
Summary: Arthur is a guardian angel who feels as if he's at the bottom of the heavenly ladder. Alfred is Freedom Star, a young superhero at the top of his game. When their paths cross, Alfred's life (and Arthur's afterlife), will never be the same.
Chapter Summary: Arthur was English. He was really English. Like, when I thought of a stereotypical English guy, something akin to an older version of Arthur would come to mind. Sure, he had his quirks, but he was definitely… way English.

And he had wings, which were his superpower, so he probably needed something like ‘angel’ or ‘seraphim’ in his name. I stared at him for a moment, trying to muster up something that had a good ring to it.

Ahah, that was it. That sounded awesome, and… I thought it went with Freedom Star pretty well, which was important.

I grinned, staring straight at the throng of reporters. “Britannia Angel. He’s called Britannia Angel.”
Author's Note: Three chapterfic updates in three weeks? ALL RIGHT! Also, a couple of gorgeous fanarts: America and England by [livejournal.com profile] kiirusama and America and England by [livejournal.com profile] luvpixel. Please drop the artists a comment if you can. :D

Summary: Ace pilot America is on a mission for the World Military when a chance encounter with a group of sky-pirates leads him to team up with their captain, England, against a malevolent group that wants to fill the sky with zeppelins. [USxUK- Steampunk AU]
Chapter Summary: The Ukko were always up for a fight, providing that the fight meant something. They were confident in their strength, and deservedly so. They weren’t called the rulers of the northern skies for no reason. They fought with a wide variety of weapons, all of them having perfected their respective arts, and they were hardy and… tough. Living constantly in that weather alone was admirable, England thought.

He would be heading up north to rendezvous with the Ukko, and he planned on leaving later that day. The less time wasted, the better.
Author's Note: An extra long chapter to at least... sort of make up for lack of updates. Sorry, everyone! Fanarts: America and England by [livejournal.com profile] kazlicya, Italy and Romano by DarqueCrystal, America and England by [livejournal.com profile] gloomybunny, America, Switzerland, and Prussia and Switzerland by Chaolover2, Belgium by LiveOak, and Belarus by [livejournal.com profile] revoiment_hika.

Summary: Arthur is spending a normal summer at his father's beach house in Cape Cod, when he encounters the extraordinary in the form of an enthusiastic young merman named Alfred, who holds an intense curiosity for Arthur. Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: “This is what we call fast food, Alfred,” Arthur explained, reaching in the bag and pulling out two wrapped round objects and two containers of thin yellow food items. “It’s what humans eat when they’re in a hurry or want something that doesn’t cost much. There are loads of fast food restaurants.”

He pointed to a word on the side of the bag. “And this, is McDonald’s.” He slid one of each object over to Alfred. “I got you a quarter pounder with cheese, that’s a hamburger, and a large order of chips. Fries, they call them in America. You eat it all with your hands.”

Eyes large with curiosity, Alfred removed the wrapper from the hamburger, running his fingers across the bun as he did so.
Author's Note: Guh... I fail. So sorry everyone. Hopefully you're still with me!

Summary: Sir Alfred of Earncynn never believed his mother's tales of magic and the faerie folk, until he came face to face with their world upon encountering Arthur Kirkland, a prisoner of the fae. Based loosely on The Ballad of Tam Lin.
Chapter Summary: Arthur stepped forward, closing the distance between the two of them. His gaze was desperate, imploring. "I don't know who you are seeing or what you are seeing, but I swear to all Alfred," his voice caught, and then it wavered as he spoke the next part, "if you leave, you will…" the dark of the night could not hide the tears forming at the corner of his eyes, "you will die."
Author's Note: Right now I'm working on finishing up updates of You Can't Take the Sky from Me and Cerulean. I honestly would have finished Cerulean tonight if not for a massive headache. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it by the weekend. Meanwhile, I've revised another chapter of this fic for posting. Here it is!

Chapter Summary: Alfred shook his head in the affirmative. “Ready, Pilot.”

“One, two---“

“Hey Arthur?”

What?”

“Has anyone ever told you that you’d make an awesome superhero?”

A huff. “Three.”

Summary: Sir Alfred of Earncynn never believed his mother's tales of magic and the faerie folk, until he came face to face with their world upon encountering Arthur Kirkland, a prisoner of the fae. Based loosely on The Ballad of Tam Lin.
Author's Note: De-anon from the kink meme. This will be four chapters long. It is based loosely on The Ballad of Tam Lin. There are... a lot of changes, both to fill it out storywise and so I could try to keep it IC and true to the characters. Hopefully it still retains the spirit of the original. I might do some notes on the faerie lore I've included in this story, but although some things are of my own invention, much (most, really) is based on fae folklore and legends of the British Isles.

Right idiotic you all are, following a pixie-light like that. )

Chapter Summary: Did he really want things to be normal again?

Did he want to return to the military, and have to follow every order dutifully, for fear of them suspecting him of criminal activities again? Did he want to never be able to question them again, because surely even if the judge decreed him not guilty, they’d still keep an extra close watch on him?

Summary: Arthur is a guardian angel who feels as if he's at the bottom of the heavenly ladder. Alfred is Freedom Star, a young superhero at the top of his game. When their paths cross, Alfred's life (and Arthur's afterlife), will never be the same.
Chapter Summary: But after he’d taken a lengthy shower, he took me down to his base and we watched a film together on his… rather massive screen. I’d never actually been in a movie theater before, or even seen a film from start to finish, but considering how huge his screen was, I imagined that I was having a similar experience. He made popcorn and carried his couch down into the base (with one hand, bloody showoff), and showed me a film that I could best describe as a… rollicking fantasy adventure, and with a rather prominent love story at that.

It’s not precisely what I would have expected from him, but when I mentioned that to him he turned away, his cheeks flushing pink and mumbled something about how “you told me before that you liked to write stuff like this so…”
Author's Note: I said five chapters, but it looks like it's going to be a bit longer than that. Sorry for the delay. :)

Alfred exhaled deeply, sliding his eyes closed and trying to calm his heartbeat. He was a hero. He could handle something as simple as Arthur undressing a mere foot or two behind him... )

Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: “…He’s not entirely human. Half human, rather. I… suppose that would be the best way to describe it. And that’s why I asked you about the sight and all. Because… well I HAVE seen something out of the ordinary. In fact, I’m dating it and…” He smacked his forehead. “Oh Christ, I’m babbling, aren’t I? Better to do that than stop and hear you pronounce me nutters but… yes, it appears this Chime Child thing has returned because I am…”

“…Arthur?”

“Dating a merman.”
Author's Note: I don't really have any excuse for lack of updates recently outside of epic writer's block. Hopefully I'm over it now. I have received four beautiful fanarts since my last update!

Chapter Summary: He thought, in the light, that it was even more apparent that the man had been crying. England could see poorly concealed tear tracks on his cheeks. His chest tightened. What had made him cry?

And he felt anger well up within him also. If someone had hurt America to the point that he was acting like this, Captain Kirkland very much wanted to give them a visit.
Author's Note: I've been sick and vacationing, and thus I've only been able to get exchange fics done for the last month or so for the most part. Hope to get on a better update schedule for ALL my chapter fics now. A couple of fanarts: Prussia, Belarus, and America by Chao-Lover2, and Skeleton Fleet of the Sky and England, both by Sallydawn!

Chapter Summary: I’d seen superheroes with the power of flight before, or with flight rings or whatever. But there was a difference between that and… wings. This wasn’t a superpower, but instead something a lot more… magical.

Summary: Arthur is a guardian angel who feels as if he's at the bottom of the heavenly ladder. Alfred is Freedom Star, a young superhero at the top of his game. When their paths cross, Alfred's life (and Arthur's afterlife), will never be the same.
Chapter Summary: Plus, Alfred considered, he had an angel staying at his house. A bonafide guy from heaven with wings and a halo and stuff! It was worth a little bit of trouble for that. And besides, a hero like him could hardly allow Arthur to stay on the streets alone or whatever.
Author's Note: Oh boy. Basically, this chapter ended up MONSTER LONG. With coding, I was pretty sure it would break the character limit, so I decided to split it into two. I will post the second half within the next day or two. It's finished. I just... want to do some last minute editing on it. Also, I have received two gorgeous fanarts for this story!

Chapter Summary: “I know you want a world without heroes or whatever, Lithuania but…” He clenched his eyes. “This isn’t that world, okay? There are really awful people and there are good people and… okay maybe there are even a few people who aren’t bad or good, really.”

“America…”

“So let ME be a hero, okay?” he continued. “It’s what I want to be, all right?”
Author's Note: Um basically this chapter is even bigger than the last one, and it's also the first chapter of this fic to reach (and surpass) 4k? I hope that extra length makes up for the delay in updating. Even though this chapter has been planned in detail from the beginning, I struggled a lot with writing it. A couple of fanworks: First, this gorgeous AmericaxEngland by [livejournal.com profile] socialholic. Secondly, several months ago a group of APH fans asked if they could cosplay the story!
