Characters: Abe Sapien, Nuala, Hellboy, Liz Sherman, Nuada, and a small cast of OCs.

Summary: The trouble with getting what you want is that something unexpected almost inevitably comes out of it. If Abe actually reads fairy tales, he really should know better.
Title: Be Near Me

Rating: Teen, or so.
Pairing: Abe/Nuala
Thanks: To [livejournal.com profile] tavern_wench1 for the world's most awesome red-pen-of-doom beta job on an almost-complete draft after NaNoWriMo, and [livejournal.com profile] maymargaret, for giving me the seed of the idea late one night in a pub, working out the general outline with me on a walk around the lake, and generally cheerleading and never letting me forget this damned thing from the other side of the globe.

Dear gods, it's over. I'm going to go take a nap, I think...

Chapter 2 )
rivendellrose: (Abe)
So! Everybody I've talked to about this blasted thing has probably given up and forgotten that I was ever working on it, but I've finally come to a point where I have to either be finished with the damned thing or admit that I'm never going to actually post it... so, after one last polishing session today, I'm calling this one finished.

This one's pretty damned big, so I'm posting it broken into the chapters. The first draft of this initial chapter was originally posted here in August of 2008, but I've done some refining and made changes to it that bleed into the later chapters, so... make what you will of that, I guess.

Fandom: Hellboy (movies)
Characters: Abe Sapien, Nuala, Hellboy, Liz Sherman, a Random BPRD Agent, and a Troll.
Timeline: post-movie-2 AU.
Summary: The trouble with getting what you want is that something unexpected almost inevitably comes out of it. If Abe actually reads fairy tales, he really should know better.
Title: Be Near Me
Warnings: Resurrection fic, but really, nothing less should be expected of the Queen of Faerie. Also, Adult Themes. While not at all graphic, there is sex between two consenting beings. In a bathtub. \
Rating: Teen, or so.

Other chapters to follow immediately...

Chapter 1 )
rivendellrose: (Abe)
So, most people know, I think, that I've been binging hardcore on the Hellboy comics, lately. I went off on a huuuuge kick after I got the last few I'd been missing at Christmas, and the one Abe Sapien trade, and then today while we were out on an errand to pick up a bit of furniture we bought off [livejournal.com profile] zinjadu, well, we were right in front of one of the comic stores anyway, so I just zipped in and bought two of the BPRD trades that I didn't have yet.

They are, shall we say, somewhat of a mixed bag.

Not sure if anyone else is reading them, but if they are, there are spoilers here for 'Garden of Souls' and 'The Soul of Venice and Other Stories' )

So, all in all, not a bad run... although I will be flipping more carefully through artists when I'm buying future trades in the BPRD run.

To bed with me, now - we're re-starting the exercise regime tomorrow, and I'd rather not fall asleep on the elliptical. Or, you know, at my desk. :P
rivendellrose: (Abe)
I keep forgetting to upload this, so I'll cheat and link to her upload - look at the gorgeous gorgeous thing that [livejournal.com profile] starbirdside drew for me!

Lovely drawing of Abe and Nuala. ♥ Yes, I'm shameless when it comes to my favorite pairings.

And she's still taking commissions, too. ♥

Title: Water Under the Bridge
Fandoms: Hellboy and Torchwood/Doctor Who.
Characters: Yvonne Hartman, Jack Harkness, Liz Sherman, Hellboy, and Abe Sapien, and one other brief cameo if you a) squint and b) aren't too attached to canon.
Pairing: Jack/Abe
Summary: The BPRD wants some help from Torchwood, and Yvonne sends someone she wants to get rid of for a while. Jack decides he doesn't mind one bit.
Warnings: Again, it's Jack-fic. There is sex. It's consensual and not graphic, but if you're underage or that's not your thing, don't read it. Also, spoilers for Hellboy II.
Disclaimer: I don't own the characters, and I don't mean to infringe.
Notes Originally posted here, but I wasn't satisfied with the original version, and now I've done enough editing and tweaking on this one that I figured I'd just repost, rather than quietly editing the old one.

Set, mysteriously, pre-series for Torchwood, and yet post-movie for the Hellboy crew. Don't ask me how that works. The back-stories here are not compliant with the Torchwood episode Fragments, which I, personally, detest. Because really, there are so many more interesting and sensible ways that all of that could have happened. None of them, unfortunately, involve the BPRD. Except here.

And it’s all [livejournal.com profile] beam_oflight’s fault. This one’s for you, sweetheart. As usual, you managed to send me exactly the bunny I never knew I needed to write. ;) (And look! Despite being Jack, it even has a sort of a plot!)

This is still not the Abe-fic I've been working on for a year. That, with luck, will come later.




Because you, Mr Harkness, are a problem for Torchwood. )
rivendellrose: (Abe)
Unedited (apologies, and please let me know of any mistakes!) and bizarre, but I do love when I can finish something in one day. ♥

Sometimes I think I draw purely so that I pay full attention to details on things. :P

How long did I spend staring at pictures and video of Nuala, when I was working on designing my version of her costume, or figuring out her makeup... without realizing until I got it into my head to draw her that, hey, they really did have dark mascara on her? *Headdesk*

And of course, being the attention whore that I am (and apparently not needing sleep, as I'm wide awake and now want nothing more than to play with this image in Photoshop...), here's the drawing that brought about this fascinating (albeit 1-year-delayed...) revelation in my head:

It's just pencil for the moment... )

Completely random fic. It just sort of attacked me.

Fandom: Hellboy
Characters: Abe, Liz, Hellboy
Summary: After leaving the BPRD, our heroes have to make certain sacrifices to ensure the household runs smoothly. Some sacrifices, however, come with problems of their own...
Title: "It's the Most Important Meal of the Day"
Notes: I don't own it, I don't make money off it, and lately it seems like I don't even control it. Oh, and the text from the box of fish food is real, more or less - I snaffled it from PetCo.com, if I remember correctly.

It's the Most Important Meal of the Day )
rivendellrose: (Abe)
I blame this entirely on a lifetime of reading fairy tales and mythology, and on [livejournal.com profile] maymargaret, who spun out the whole idea (and more) with me the day after we watched the movie. It was more of a fairy tale in the first drafts, but I decided I wanted to stick with the root of the story for now. I may or may not write more later (including the "definitely a fairy tale" bits), depending on how self-indulgent I feel. ;)

Fandom: Hellboy (movie-verse)
Cast of Characters: Abe, Nuala, Hellboy, Liz, a Random BPRD Agent, and a Troll.
Timeline: post-movie-2, almost certainly AU.
Summary: The trouble with getting what you want is that something unexpected almost inevitably comes out of it. If Abe actually reads fairy tales, he really should know better.
Title: "Unexpected Results"
Warnings: Resurrection fic, but really, nothing less should be expected of the Queen of Faery. Also, Adult Themes. While not at all graphic, there is sex between two consenting beings. In a bathtub.
Rating: Teen, or so.

Unexpected Results )
rivendellrose: (Eowyn's smile)
I can't remember who once told me that eating cheese before bed gives you weird, vivid dreams, but I think I proved it true last night. I was reeeeeally hungry just as I was getting into bed (my fault for having a small dinner, admittedly), and... so I ate a small slice of the really tasty comte we have in the fridge. Yeah. I don't remember much of the dream, but I remember that Abe Sapien and Sarah Jane Smith were hanging out together, and that later on my friends and I were trying to go to a movie, and [livejournal.com profile] sigelphoenix brought Theoden (er... my cat, not the King of Rohan) along. And I was worried about losing him in the theater. Now that I think of it, it could hardly have been less weird if it really had been King Theoden... either way it was all pretty strange.

Still desperately behind on all my writing projects, still stuck halfway through another drawing project, and still really wishing I'd never discovered Photoshop online tutorials, because they suck my life away. I'm working on a wallpaper with clockwork gears right now, and it's tedious beyond belief, but I can't seem to make myself stop (in part because the dratted thing actually looks really cool).

Also, woe and alas, I managed to forget both the new audio books that I borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] maymargaret last night, and am pretty much out of music that I haven't listened to ten billion times here at work. I'm booooooored. Coding is not fun with nothing to listen to while I do it! And I've already listened to all my podcasts for the week, and NPR is being boring, and am sick of the selection of music on my mp3 player. I'll stop my whining, now. But boo.

Tomorrow I will refill my travelling CD case with stuff I haven't listened to in a while, and I will not forget those blasted audio books! Love's Labours Lost and Cymbeline - a whole six hours of entertainment for tomorrow!

...And I just had to take a call because I forgot to log myself out of the phone when I went on lunch. Hellfire. The first fricking call I've gotten all day, and it has to come when I'm on lunch...
