I'm still concerned about my ability to write any more in my life's current climate, because this fic ended up being a channel for quite a lot of feelings. But nonetheless, it's a reasonable length fic and the first thing I've written since the accident, so yay?

TITLE: White Noise
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: 9,000 words approx
SUMMARY: "This place," Duke said, hands fidgeting on the wheel as he drove them down toward the flat intertidal whiteness, paled from the salt and sun exposure. "There's something about this place, now. I like lonely areas, but this is giving me the creeps."
"Me, too." Audrey shifted at Nathan's side. "Nathan."
"Don't like it much," Nathan mumbled.
"You are weird today."
NOTES: Written for the darkfic exchange for Phoenixdragon, the prompt being "existential horror". I couldn't resist giving this one a shot, though I'm not sure if I'll have hit the target or not for such a grand esoteric concept. I was intrigued by the idea of a horror or darkfic where the primary motifs are open spaces and brightness.

TITLE: The Witchfinder's Whore
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~18,800 words approx
SUMMARY: Nathan Wuornos hid his magic and took up bartering his flesh for coin after watching his father burned at the stake. But one day, an aggressive client cries "witch!" and Nathan finds himself in the citadel jails. An unexpected reprieve appears in the form of shady priest Duke Crocker, who offers to release Nathan in return for his services... both physical and magical... in bringing down his hated enemy, corrupt Crown Inquisitor Lady Mara and her consort William. Nathan has no intention of betraying another witch, but he'll take the chance for freedom... and to play with the delectable priest's guilty lusts while he's about it...
NOTES: Crack fantasy romance novel AU written for the Unconventional Courtship challenge.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

"It is a Dark Era, one when a lusty lad will do what he must to survive. Even if it means bartering flesh for a palmful of coins. . . Forced to watch his father burn at the stake, Nathan Wuornos knows the danger of the gift he inherited - a powerful magic that must stay hidden. Until one night when he's accused of witchcraft and Nathan finds himself behind prison walls, awaiting certain death with a roguish priest unlike any man of the cloth he has known. In reality, Duke Crocker is as far from holy as the devil himself, but his promise of freedom in return for Nathan's services may be his salvation. Locked into a dubious agreement, Nathan resents his plan to have him seduce and ruin his lifelong enemy. But toying with Duke's own lust for him is enjoyable, and he agrees to be his pawn while secretly intending to use him just the same..."

--Based on 'The Harlot' by Saskia Walker.

The roles could've gone either way. But I've been joking about writing hooker!Nathan since the season 3-4 hiatus, so~

TITLE: Conversations With Ghosts
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~12,000 words approx
SUMMARY: Nathan's Trouble came back gradually, a little each day ever since he walked alone down the armoury hill and left his heart behind. A few days after he finally awoke with no sensation left in his body, they found the first corpse with aether-smudged eyes.
Now he faces questions he never wanted to ask. Are the Troubles coming back? Is the apparition of Duke seen in Haven responsible for the killings? Can Croatoan's reach extend beyond the walls of the new Barn, and even death itself?
PAIRING: Duke/Nathan, Audrey/Duke/Nathan
NOTES: written for PhoenixDragon in the After Forever post-finale fic exchange: Duke isn't dead, but isn't technically alive, either. Nathan had to make a choice, Duke was not that choice. But he feels haunted and wonders if he made the right one - as attacks on Haven begin by a serial killer and Duke is the obvious suspect, even as he is not really there to defend himself.
This story is set as an alternative to the last ~2 minutes of screentime in the finale; Audrey is still in the armoury, and Nathan is still trying to live his life and rebuild Haven.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

EHm. This is the random nudity Trouble fic.

TITLE: Grin and Bare It
AUTHOR: roseveare
RATING: a really mild R? IDEK
LENGTH: ~14,000 words
PAIRING: Audrey/Duke/Nathan
SUMMARY: Nathan's caught a dose of a particularly embarrassing Trouble, Duke wants in on the hilarity, and Haven is just not letting up as Audrey and co struggle to keep a lid on the chaos. Some Troubles, you just have to grin and bare 'em...
NOTES: Written for Chiiyo86 in Holly Poly 2015. This is set in some happier season 1-2 mashup where the Chief is still around and Duke isn't obsessing about a tattooed man.

I wrote about 3 fics for halfamoon on Tumblr. This is the only one I've brushed up for AO3 and FFN, but I'll post the others here too in the next day or so.

TITLE: Climbing Mount Haven
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~5,000 words
SUMMARY: Lexie, Jennifer and Jordan embark on a journey to the police station which Haven's geography conspires to make far more epic than usual.
NOTES: AU divergence set after Countdown. Written for the halfamoon female characters challenge, day #6 - hurt/comfort. I was quite taken by the idea of trying to write a story with hurt/comfort tones using an all-female cast.

Climbing Mount Haven )
I'm posting the sequel and just noticed the original crack had never been posted on here. Well, here it is.

TITLE: Rage Bunny
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~6,700 words
SUMMARY: Nathan gets turned into something small and fluffy with floppy ears. Nathan is decidedly unhappy about this.
NOTES: Based on the Haven Herald Book Club (on Tumblr) prompt of "Your favourite turns into an animal due to a new Trouble, and must seek help from the other characters".

Happy 2016!

In my headcanonland this is a new year maybe a week post finale and that is why Duke is so exhausted he's collapsed along with lightweights Nathan and Audrey.
TITLE: Seven Day Week
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: 11,500 words
SUMMARY: Duke has no memory beyond the last few days and seems to be existing in a life of hard labour he's fairly sure shouldn't be his life, but things aren't all bad -- not since falling in love with the likewise-amnesiac 111, of the blue eyes and compulsively helpful nature. Duke/Nathan.
NOTES: Slightly canon divergent late season 1 setting where Audrey already knows she's immune to Troubles. Second of two mid-length Duke/Nathan fics written while I was supposed to be doing NaNoWriMo. The Trouble in this one was inspired by the Farscape episode Thank God It's Friday... Again.

Seven Day Week )

Howard: "Bitch, please."
Nathan: "Ohshit."

I was hoping to actually manage to draw a decent picture of Audrey sometime this year. And oh look! Someone on Haven that's not white! I did this in full colour first before deciding to mimic the episode format, so here you go, alt version.

I don't think I ever posted the link to Clockwork entire on AO3, so here it is:

TITLE: Clockwork
AUTHOR: roseveare
RATING: R/Mature
LENGTH: Approx 90,000 words total
PAIRING: Audrey/Duke/Nathan
SUMMARY: Steampunk Haven. Amnesiac fugitive Audrey Parker hires privateer airship captain Duke Crocker's Cape Rouge to fly her safe passage out of the city-state of Heppa, but they find their escape pursued by police automaton Nathan Wuornos and a deadly mystery enemy.
NOTES: Rabbitt made a list of prompts for possible Haven AUs on Tumblr, including "steampunk AU!", and is therefore almost completely to blame for this. I said I'd draw the thing, I have no idea how this happened.
DISCLAIMER: Virtually everything I know about airships was from reading the Wikipedia entry, although I also looked at enough steampunk art after Wikipedia to conclude This Is Not About Science. In any case, please forgive historical and technological and genre gaffs (I don't actually know hell of a lot about Steampunk, either).

5x21: In which Hailie inadvertantly starts an epic slash war with Audrey by deciding to ship Duke on Top.

5x19 - Grope-zombies.

This came out of wanting to have Charlotte and Audrey central to the picture -- last chance for Charlotte and really not enough Audrey in these so far -- but also still have some humour. (And I mean, it's pretty much all there on that promo pic that was floating around, where Nathan's expression looks exactly like he's just been groped by a zombie...)

Anyway, yesterday I wasn't sure if I was going to have time to do any work on Photoshop today, and I'd only finished the menfolk, so I also saved a version with just Nathan and Dwight, which I rather like. Thus, two cartoons this week.

There's also a textless version here (And a larger one)

5x18: In the Cards - Nathan navigates the Troubled Tarot.

Larger version here

I'm really pleased with this one. :D
NOTE: This is the chapter primarily reponsible for the mature content rating. If Audrey/Duke/clockwork!Nathan sex sounds too brain-breaking for your liking, skip to Chapter 15 after the scene break (about 3,000 words in).
