Releasing the Queue

We are only five four three two stories short of being able to release!

The plan right now is to release this evening (once both of your lovely mods are home from work and have attended to RL). This should begin approximately around 8pm CDT/ 9pm EDT.

In order for this to happen, we need those last five four three two stories posted.

If you are the author of one of those stories, PLEASE comment here or shoot us an email to let us know if you will be able to post by 5pm CDT today.

If you are available to write a last minute pinch hit today, PLEASE comment here with a list of fandoms that you can write.

We have already double assigned a few of the pinch hits. At this point, anyone who turns in a story (whether it's before or after the queue is released) will not be considered a defaulter. We do understand that RL happens, but we would like to release the fics. Moderation will be turned off once the queue is released. We are also planning to post a master list of all the prompts, so that people may continue to write amazing female-centered fic.

You may want to consider removing this community from your friends list before we start released the queue, as it will end up flooding it.

Any questions, comments, thoughts, etc? Please comment here or send us an email!

NCIS FIC :: "Proposal" [ Abby/Ziva, PG13] for krazykipper

Title: Proposal
Author: A. Magiluna Stormwriter
Email: stormwriter@shatterstorm.net
Rating: PG13
Pairings: Abby/Ziva
Date: 2-3 April 2008
Word Count: 1591
Written for: femme_fic multifandom ficathon 2008
Recipient: krazykipper
Summary: Ziva has an important question to ask...
Sequel to: Disclosure [tho' it's not necessary to read that one first]
Website: ShatterStorm Productions – Frisked & Conquered
Link to: http://f-n-c.shatterstorm.net/
Archive: ShatterStorm Productions only...all others ask for permission & we'll see...

Author's Disclaimer: "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Services," the characters, and situations depicted are the property of Belisarius Productions, Paramount Network Television Productions, Paramount Television, and CBS Television. This piece of fan fiction was created for entertainment not monetary purposes. Previously unrecognized characters and places, and this story, are copyrighted to the author. Any similarity to real persons, living or dead, is coincidental and not intended by the author. This site is in no way affiliated with " NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Services," CBS, or any representatives of Pauley Perrette or Cote de Pablo.

Chosen Prompt:
Characters: Abby/Ziva. (and the rest of the team too)
Prompt: Anything showing a realistic progression to the girls having some kind of relationship. If there is a kink, extra brownie points.
Author's Notes: This was written as a pinch hit for krazykipper. When I got this prompt, I thought about it and originally had the idea of Abby and Ziva adopting a little girl named Sarah [Israeli in the original idea], with the story being Abby telling Sarah a fairy tale about how she and Ziva got together. Of course, once Sarah was asleep, the story would then be Abby and Ziva having some "alone" time. But the story just wouldn't come together for me, no matter how hard I tried. So I decided to go with this idea instead. It is technically a sequel to "Disclosure", but you don't have to read that to read this one. You just get a little more detail if you do.

The writing of this story almost didn't get completed. When I started writing the original version of this particular story [not the original idea], I'd gotten about 400 words written and went to do a spellcheck. Except Word closed out the document! The sad part? I hadn't saved it yet. That was about 8 at night. I was livid, and couldn't find the temp file at all. So I put on some Disturbed and Godsmack, and started to reconstruct what had been lost. I managed to get almost all of it, practically verbatim, and then continued on. This final draft got finished in about 2 ½ hours.

As for the pendant in the story. Originally it was going to be a thumb ring, but cuspofqueens mentioned going outside the box with a pendant. While Ziva would have an original design for the pendant, I used this pendant as the basis of her gift.

Research on Ziva's Religious Beliefs: I had Ziva saying Hashem instead of God, based on the info on from the Names of God in Judaism wiki. If there's a better reference that she'd make, let me know and I'll gladly fix it. Also, I took the basic info on how Ziva would react to discovering/accepting her lesbianism from the Homosexuality and Judaism wiki. While this wasn't explored in depth, this is where I got my research.

Dedication: My muses, for always coming thru, even in a pinch.

Beta: shatterpath, as usual

Could They Choose Between (Forever Knight, PG)

Title: Could They Choose Between
Author: havocthecat
Fandom: Forever Knight
Characters: Janette Ducharme, Nick Knight, Natalie Lambert
Setting: Forever Knight, Season 1, Post-Hunters
Rating: PG
Summary: "I thought it would be a good time to get to know someone who's so very--" Janette paused and let herself focus on Natalie. "Who's so very close to Nicholas."
Author's Notes: Janette's POV is hard to write. I write Natalie's POV so much more easily. (I <3 snarky coroners.) Did I mention that medie is awesome? The woman did piecemeal betareading as I fed her bits of the story. And thank you to tv_elf, wiliqueen, and butterflykiki, who took a look at the story as a coherent whole. My title is derived from I measure every Grief I meet by Emily Dickinson.
This was written for amilyn with the prompt: "If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise." --Robert Fritz

My Heart's Quiet Home (Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: SG-1; PG)

Title: My Heart's Quiet Home
Author: havocthecat
Rating: PG
Warnings: Crackfic. Fpreg. Femslash. Kidfic.
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: SG-1
Characters: Teyla Emmagan, Kate Heightmeyer, Samantha Carter, & Elizabeth Weir. Mentions of Vala Mal Doran and Laura Cadman.
Pairing: Kate Heightmeyer/Elizabeth Weir
Summary: Motherhood on Atlantis.
Author's Notes: angelqueen04 is the best betareader ever. She encourages me to write all the good crack.
Prompt/Recipient: Written for triciabyrne1978 for the femme_fic ficathon, for the following prompt(s): "The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children." -Elain Heffner, O Magazine, May 2003 or "There is nothing to suggest that mothering cannot be shared by several people." -H. R. Schaffer, O Magazine, May 2003." Title is from Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome by Christina Rossetti. Also, presume that this exists in some vague AU where no one died, Sam is in charge of the military on Atlantis, Vala got shipped there to hide her from the Ori, and things are otherwise pretty much status quo for mid to late third season.

Three Months Out. Six To Go. (Perfect Time For a Big Sister Freak Out.) [BtVS; PG]

Title: Three Months Out. Six To Go. (Perfect Time For a Big Sister Freak Out.)
Author: havocthecat
Rating: PG
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Characters: Xander Harris, Willow Rosenberg, Buffy Summers, and Dawn Summers. Mentions of Rupert Giles, Faith Lehane, and Robin Wood.
Pairing: Dawn/OMC
Summary: Dawn is pregnant. The fact that she's nearly thirty, married, and totally living her own life right now seems to make no difference to the Standard Buffy Summers 'My Little Sister Has A Life' Crisis. She'd kind of hoped it would.

Author's Notes: The title is derived from Honey, by Arielle Greenberg. Thank you to ladybug218 for an awesome beta!
Written for brightknightie for the femme_fic inaugural ficathon, for the following prompt:
Characters: Buffy and Dawn, plus a reference to deceased Joyce
Prompt: Grown-up, married, normal-human, little-sister Dawn tells still-single, slayer, older-sister Buffy that Buffy will soon be an aunt.

Authors: havocthecat & medie
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Characters: Anya Jenkins, Willow Rosenberg
Pairing: vague hints of Anya/Giles and unmentioned-but-there Tara/Willow
Rating: PG
Summary: Anya interrupts a spell. Her bad. Though Willow maybe should've locked the door. Oops?
Authors' Notes: Written for the femme_fic ficathon for ryf with the prompt of "a story from Anya's past." It ended up turning into time travel instead, so I hope that works for you. Also, thank you ladybug218, for the beta!
