TITLE: Hurricane Chasing
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~6,500 words approx
SUMMARY: "I think you were all the heroes of some big story, and now here am I, stuck in the Epilogue." Paige remembers, piece by piece.
NOTES: written for Rabbitt in the After Forever post-finale Haven ficathon. 'Something exploring the actual ramifications of Audrey coming back as Paige.' This didn't quite go the places I expected it to go, but I find myself quite pleased with it? Also, in which far too much is read into Paige's name. I'm not completely sure where the reference to Paige being a teacher came from, but I've seen it mentioned by a few people in fandom so I have written with that in mind. The fic quotes briefly from Tennyson’s ‘Ulysses’.

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.

Conversations With Ghosts )

Or read on AO3
Summary: Decision time for Nathan and Duke -- and Audrey -- to try to map out a future for Haven... and themselves.

Notes: This is the last part, and since there is a definitive conclusion here, bear in mind that I am drawing the threads to a close while ignoring a good deal of the solutions that were suggested in season 5 canon, the first draft of the story having been written before those reveals. In a way, it's academic whether much of the information revealed in season 5 is true or not in this 'verse, because Nathan and Duke and co. don't have that knowledge and can only speculate in the absence of it.

Duke/Nathan - Explicit - 17,500 words

Part 4: Remains )

Or read on AO3
Summary: After everything that has happened, with William and Audrey temporarily removed from the equation, Nathan and Duke have a brief window to try and fix their relationship, while Dwight and Nathan and HPD try to fix Haven, and figure out where they all go from here.

Duke/Nathan - explicit - ~28,000 words

Part 3: Three Days Grace )

Or read on AO3
Summary: Nathan tries, using outside help, to determine the exact sequence of events that led to Duke killing him in the cave.

Duke/Nathan - Explicit - ~8,000 words

Shattered, Part 2: The Lost Week )

Or read on AO3
Loosing this into the wild is a terrifying prospect. Should hopefully be posted complete in time for the last part to be uploaded for this Friday's Nuke Night on Tumblr.

TITLE: Shattered
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: 73,000 words approx.
SUMMARY: Nathan has been clawing his way back to life since he returned to Haven. Dying might just give him the push he needs to get there. Duke/Nathan.
WARNINGS: references to violent sex, dubious-to-non-consent, death, deliberate injury, blood, addiction, mindfuck, trauma.
NOTES: Unbreakable #3. Canon compliant only up to season 4's Fallout, incorporating an alternate take on the season 4 plot arc but nipping season 5 elements in the bud. Novel-length, in four parts.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

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)

I'm really pleased with this one. :D

First impression: 5x14 was good, better than the episodes at the end of last season that preceded it IMHO. 5x15 had some plot holes but at least rest under cut tag for spoilers ).
Icon has never been more appropriate, given the opening scene.

TITLE: The Choice
AUTHOR: roseveare
PAIRING: Duke Crocker/Nathan Wuornos, Duke Crocker/Dwight Hendrickson
LENGTH: 4,800 words
SUMMARY: Sleeping with the town fixer and the Chief's son was a sweet deal for Duke... until they both found out, along with the Chief and just about everyone else in Haven. Written for dvioletta in Troubled Tales 2015.
NOTES: This is not my usual sort of subject matter, but for some reason this prompt which was pretty much the whole plotline giftwrapped kept coming back to me and one day did a takeover of my brain. I was supposed to be working when the majority of it was written straight through in one morning.
NOTES #2: This is set in some AU where Garland is still around by the time Dwight comes to Our Heroes' attention, otherwise around ~mid season 2.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

The Choice )

House Divided: Chapter 6 )

NOTE: This is later than planned. I realised I needed to edit all of the last chapters as a unit to make sure I had the continuity straight, which meant I had to get the last of my typing done. Hoping to post the last three sections Saturday-Sunday-Monday.
This morning I was asked what Nathan's Troubles are now, and thought a reminder was a good idea, so made a quick substitution of the art for this chapter, with apologies to Leonardo da Vinci!

House Divided: Chapter 2 )

Title: Winter's Flotsam
Written & Read by: roseveare
Rating: R
Details: 52 minutes, 120MB, MP3
Summary: It's been a hard winter for Nathan and Dwight, and they're both a little worn at the edges. But maybe the wear and tear can bring them closer.

Winter's Flotsam - Streaming and download on mediafire

Notes: So I wanted to get at least one more thing posted for [community profile] amplificathon and yet Eurydice is a monster of a project I am not sure I'll edit in time. Thus, I decided to record another shorter fic. I opted for this one because I was in somewhat husky voice the other day, and I thought that for a Nathan and Dwight podfic that was something that might actually not hurt. This is the first time I've ever podficced a sex scene of any length, so that was interesting.

Randomly, I don't think I ever extrapolated on this point at the time I posted the fic, but winter's flotsam is -- my idea of what it is, anyway, is -- the debris that's left behind when the ice and snow covering the ground finally melts after a long winter. So now you know.
