awanderingbard: (MCU: Jarvis)
Title: Love and Enthusiasm
Characters: Ana Jarvis, Tony Stark, Edwin Jarvis, Maria Stark
Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: some references to anti-semitism
Spoilers: none
Pairings: Ana/Jarvis
Word Count 5,138
Summary: Ana takes in a wandering Stark, and teaches him how to make challah.
Author's notes: I recently posted 'Character Flaws' AO3, and someone there commented asking for more little!Tony and Ana and Jarvis, and I thought 'I can do that'. So, this is a fluffy Stark Family Adventures fic.

I have never made challah, and I did much research into it, and my understanding is that everyone does it their own way, so I've cobbled together various recipes, techniques and traditions that I found. I hope I have all the meaning and mitzvahs involved correct, my sincere apologies if I've messed anything up.

Tony is approximately three, probably closer to four in this. I've used a mixed of British and American English for Ana, assuming she'd have learned from speakers of both.

I really need an Ana Jarvis icon...

I come to see you! )

Title: Character Flaws
Characters: Edwin Jarvis, Tony Stark, Howard Stark, Ana Jarvis, Maria Stark
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Triggers: some swearing, a bit of violence
Spoilers: none
Pairings: Jarvis/Ana, Howard/Maria
Word Count 5,665
Summary: Jarvis’ outing with Master Tony is interrupted by a particularly aggressive photographer, who places himself in the hazardous position of getting on Edwin Jarvis’ bad side.
Author's notes: I was musing about Season 2!Jarvis’ increased fighting skills, and I wondered if Tony had ever seen them put to use, and then this idea popped into my head.

Set in 1974 (specifically August, apparently, from Jarvis’ comments on current events). Tony is four. I did my best to be somewhat realistic with the American judicial system, but I think I may have fudged slightly for the sake of storytelling.

Is he a good photog or a bad photog? )
awanderingbard: (MCU: Howard and Jarvis)
Title: Off-Duty Hours
Characters: Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Tony Stark, Anna Jarvis
Rating: G
Warnings/Triggers: none
Spoilers: A few general ones for the MCU at large
Pairings: Howard/Maria, Anna/Jarvis
Word Count 6,356
Summary: Jarvis comes home from an unusual day of satisfying his employer's whims, to find a rather large surprise waiting for him. Just in time for his birthday.
Author's notes: This is perhaps the only 'normal' story to come out of the crossover memes [ profile] joonscribble and I did a while back. One of the questions was about a surprise party for Jarvis, and that seemed like the fluffy goodness I enjoy. It turned out to be quite a bit harder to write than I thought, due to the amount of characters I had to juggle. I think this is the fourth version. I hope it all reads okay in the end!

Set in 1973, or thereabouts. I have no idea what Jarvis' age is meant to be, so I've avoided mentioning it, and I've also left a blank for Peggy's husband's name. Tony is about three, and everyone else is around mid-fifties, I'm guessing, except for Maria, who is late-thirties.

Jarvis' cuff links are based on a real Paul Flato deisgn, and look like this, for those curious.

I did get him to tone it down. Otherwise, we'd have three hundred guests and a fire eater. )

Title: Twinkle Toes
Characters: John, Abby, Mrs Hudson, Sherlock, Sarah
Rating: G
Warnings/Triggers: none
Spoilers: none
Pairings: John/Sarah
Word Count 3,670
Summary: Abby's dance camp is having a family day. John and Mrs Hudson show up to be proud, but it remains to be seen whether Uncle Sherlock is going to join them.

Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

A visitor to my journal (I don't know how to link to Google+ users, sorry!) mentioned she'd liked to see an 'Abby's first dance recital' fic. Inspired by some of my memories of summer dance camp when I was little. It also gave me a chance to do more with Mrs Hudson in this 'verse. Short and fluffy.

Instead of just the improperly mental you are now? )

Title: Setting a Precedent
Characters: Sherlock, Abby, Gladstone, John
Rating: G
Warnings/Triggers: none
Spoilers: none
Pairings: none
Word Count 3,012
Summary: Sherlock keeps Abby busy so John can finish a column, and does his best to answer her questions about fish, belly buttons, mermaids, and the moon.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

According to the timeline I had to make to stop confusing myself, Abby Watson was born on April 20, 2015. So, in honour of this, have the fluffiest of fluff. This stemmed entirely out of a random snippet of conversation I had in my head between Sherlock and Abby, which I tried to work into three or four different fics, before just letting it run wild on its own and seeing what happened. Which is fluff. Fluffy fluff. I was also inspired by a few tumblr and reddit posts involving questions and kids. I thought Sherlock would be good with fielding those sorts of questions.

Overall, Sherlock found childcare very up and down. )
awanderingbard: (Marvel: Tony Stark is awesome)
Title: Sincerity and Strawberries
Characters: Howard Stark, Maria Stark, Tony Stark, Edwin Jarvis, random au pair
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Triggers: swearing and innuendo, a bit of sadness
Spoilers: None
Pairings: Howard/Maria, references to Jarvis/Anna
Word Count 8,369
Summary: Howard's plans for the night are derailed when Maria has to go away, leaving him with Tony, a broken robot, and a whole lot of reports to read.
Author's notes: Man, this one went 'fwoosh!' on me and blew right up. I started with one very small idea, and then...I couldn't stop writing. Kind of a go at Howard's narration voice in an non-daemon setting, and his experiences with fatherhood in Tony's early years.

A mix of fluff and a bit of sadness, mostly stemming from knowledge we have of the future than the content of the story.

Tony is ~2 years old here.

It's Tony! )

Title: Shiny Shoes and Microscopes
Characters: John, Sherlock, Abby, Sarah, Gladstone
Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: swearing, a bit of family drama, fluffy-fluffness
Spoilers: none
Pairings: John/Sarah
Word Count 5,946
Summary: In the midst of a somewhat stressful Christmas, John finds Christmas morning with his family and Sherlock a pleasant affair.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

Yay, I managed to write everything I wanted to before the end of the holiday season. Happy Christmas to everyone who celebrated, I hope you had a lovely time, and for those who didn't, I hope you still got a chance to rest and relax.

I think 'Happy Christmas' is the traditional greeting. )
awanderingbard: (SHERLOCK: Molly cameo)
Title: The Teacher's Wife
Characters: Molly, Alec, Josh, Reed, Rupert, Sherlock
Rating: G
Warnings/Triggers: Just fluff, really
Spoilers: none
Pairings: Molly/Alec, Josh/Rupert
Word Count 3,824
Summary: Molly attends her first school Nativity play as the wife of a teacher.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

A lot of the time I have story ideas for Molly and Alec, but when I write them they just sort of head into a territory of 'happy, but not really having a point'. But I thought that sort of story might be okay around the holidays, so here's a fluffy story about Alec and Molly being cute and happy.

The Drezeler-Jones family have previously appeared in "40 MPH" and the wedding fic, which can be found in the bottom section of the link above if you need a refresher on the massive collection of OCs I have.

Excellent, learny is exactly the atmosphere I was going for. )

Title: Reunion
Author: [ profile] awanderingbard
Character(s)/pairings: Steve, Jaqueline Falsworth-Crichton, a slew of OCS
Fandom and/or Prompt: Captain America/MCU
Rating: PG
Spoilers/Warnings: generalized spoilers for the MCU, a bit of angst, a larger bit of a fluff
Disclaimer: I do not own any of these characters, I just like to take them out to play.
Summary: Steve is invited to the 14th Annual Howling Commandos Family Reunion, which turns out to be a bit more overwhelming than he'd expected.
Author's Notes: Inspired by a post on tumblr quite a while back about the Howling Commandos being a big extended family and having reunions and such. I took a bit of comic book canon for Jacqueline, but mostly messed about with it to suit my purposes, including putting her in the generation after the one she canonically exists in.

Written for [ profile] consci_fan_mo.

And now, Steve was awake to join in. )

Title: Doctor Princess
Characters: Mycroft, Sherlock, Abby, John, Gladstone, Mrs Hudson
Rating: G
Warnings/Triggers: none, apart from some implication of stressful school years
Spoilers: none
Pairings: John/Sarah
Word Count 4,525
Summary: Mycroft pays a visit to Baker Street on Hallowe'en and discovers a doctor princess, an unwelcome dog, and, perhaps most frightening of all, a brother who is nice to small children.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

Just total fluff, I don't even remember what inspired it, except that I don't feel like Mycroft has enough to do in this verse, and I had an idea of Abby celebrating Hallowe'en. So, here, have some brotherly bonding and a small toddler in a costume. Thanks to [ profile] joonscribble for chattering with me and inspiring Abby's choice in stickers.

What's your costume? )

Title: Paint Fumes

Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: some discussion of an alcoholic relative
Spoilers: none
Pairings: John/Sarah
Word Count 5,323
Summary: The Watson Household is infiltrated by a distressed Consulting Detective for the night.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

A very lovely person sent me a very lovely PM over at, in regards to my stories here, and mentioned wanting to see a typical evening at the Sawyer-Watsons (possibly with Sherlock involved), and Sarah and Sherlock interacting with one another. It was similar to, but a much better idea than the one I was struggling with at the time, so I crammed the two concepts together and wrote this. I hope it serves.

Needless to say, this is fluff of the higest order.

Poor Sherlock. He's had all his toys taken away. )
awanderingbard: (SHERLOCK: Trio)
Title: Computers
Characters: Siger, Trevelyan
Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: none
Pairings: Siger/Dora
Spoilers: none
Word Count 2,589 words
Summary: Siger and Trevelyan spend some time together--without a certain older brother there to interfere.
Author's notes: Set in the Trio 'verse.

Part three of the 'Siger + small Holmes brother' trio, Trevelyan's turn. Mycroft and Siger are here, and Sherlock and Siger are here.

FYI, an ambylopia patch from the era in which Trevelyan (and I) had to wear them looked like this.

I feel like I should say that Siger's views on religion do not necessarily reflect my own.

Trevelyan spun in a circle, as though he were overwhelmed with the Sherlock-free possibilities that lay before him. )

Title: Codes
Characters: Siger, Mycroft, Grandfather
Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: a domestic abuse situation
Pairings: Siger/Dora
Spoilers: none
Word Count 2,302
Summary: A crisis at home causes Siger to take Mycroft to London on the train to stay with his in-laws, and he passes on some important knowledge along the way.
Author's notes: Set in the Trio 'verse.

I had this idea as I was falling asleep one night of contrasting the three brothers at the same age, and so I started writing a fic meant to be in three sections, and ended up writing three fics. I decided to place them at age three, since three is obviously an important number in this verse, and when children really start to be able to voice their thoughts and personalities.

It ended up being quite a similar set of stories to the 'What if?' series, and the 'C' theme of that fit these as well, so feel free to consider them in the same universe.

Siger is a bit flippant in this, and I want to make it clear that I don't take domestic abuse lightly. Nor does he, really. He's just very much a Holmes.

I like to look at things that are not trees. )

Title: The Nail that Sticks Out

Warnings/Triggers: a veiled implication of past bullying

Pairings: John/Sarah
Word Count 4,115
Summary: Abby starts preschool, despite Sherlock's feelings on the subject.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

So, this story is not the story I set out to write, but Sherlock suddenly hijacked it and had, like, feelings, so I just let it go where it wanted.

I think we're at the point where all the stories I've been writing get finished at the same time. Sorry about that.

Someone went to public school. )

Title: Cracks in the Illusion
Characters: Frigga, Loki, Odin
Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: a bit sad, possible bad parenting
Pairings: Frigga/Odin
Spoilers: Loki's basic backstory
Word Count 2,095
Summary: A nightmare makes Loki revert to his true form, and Frigga tries to soothe him without cracking the illusion of his birth completely.
Author's notes: This is [ profile] joonscribble's fault, a result of our random comment fests. She wondered whether Loki had ever reverted to his Jotun form once as a child, and I can't resist a good kid!fic prompt. I've also wanted to do something with Loki and Frigga's relationship, since I find it interesting.

First Thor fic. I'm still messing about with how Ye Olde the speech should be; I've tried to balance it to be formal, but not too Shakespearean. Loki would be the Asgardian equivalent of about 4-years old here.

The Marvel universe seems to not have an accent in 'Jotun', so I've gone with that spelling.

It got kind of sad. I'm sorry.

There was a Jotun under the bed; and not one of the ones Thor conjured in his mind when he was frightened. )

Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: death of a parent, underage smoking, bittersweet, very vague references to past domestic abuse
Pairings: none
Spoilers: none
Word Count 6,880
Summary: A family reunion takes place at the beach house in Nice, six months after Siger's death. Mycroft takes his first holiday in seven years, and the family tries to find a new normal.
Author's notes: Set in the Trio 'verse, post-'Carry On'.

I'm really, really, really sorry about all these OCs. I really am. I can't help myself. I'm sorry. They just sort of...showed up, and I made the mistake of letting them in, and now they're using all the hot water and eating all my food. Please send help.

This is the weird result of [ profile] aelfgyfu_mead's comment of wanting to see the Holmes brothers in bunk beds at the beach house. I started one story, but then got distracted by this idea, and now 7,000 words later, here we are. There are bunk beds, though. I did manage to get them in.

It was perhaps time to start a new normal. )

Characters: John, Sherlock, Abby, Harry, Sarah, Gladstone
Rating: PG
Warnings/Triggers: background of a murder (no details), references to alcoholism
Spoilers: none
Pairings: John/Sarah
Word Count 4,119
Summary: Sherlock learns what John does in a day, John learns how to make bunches, Abby learns how to form a hypothesis, and a stupid amount of fairy cakes are made.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

I think the only excuse I can offer for this is I was listening to Rumpole while playing Papa's Cupcakeria, and my brain seemed to think Sherlock + fairy cakes was a good plan.

Basically pure domestic fluff. I'm sorry.

I need to make a vast quantity of fairy cakes. May I use your kitchen? )

Word Count 6,949
Summary: The wedding is over. Time to party. And be sentimental.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

This is Part Two, Part One is here.

This is the reception. I think I've been reading too much Maeve Binchy, as there are multiple POVs in this one, too. It was the only way I could get everything I wanted to into it.

I'm very sorry about how involved this verse had become. I didn't mean to do it.

I have a pinboard of random photos that inspired me while I was writing, if anyone is curious as to that sort of thing.

Oh my God, we just got married! )

Word Count 1,795
Summary: Alec's day out with his godson includes a run-in with Sherlock Holmes. Who turns out to like toffee and knows about dinosaurs.
Author's notes: Set in the Abby 'verse.

Okay, so this is a tiny story that has absolutely no plot. It is here solely to introduce Reed and Josh, because they are big players in the next fic and I felt like we should meet them rather than throwing them out there. I googled random fic prompts because nothing I was doing was working out, and I got the prompt of 'zebra' and 'toffee'. This is the result.

Josh's wedding ring looks like this. This is relevant.

Are you a superhero? )
