master fic list [Dec. 12th, 2030|10:53 am]
mustinvestigate
[Tags|, , ]

Upon realizing even I have a bastard of a time trying to find anything in my lj, I decided to finally make up a:

Master Fic List!

Fallout New Vegas

Clearing the Board, F!Courier/Benny, R
Summary: Sequel to Incoming/Outgoing: Grabbing the King Fink crown of Rat Mountain...for a big-leaguer like Benny, how hard could it be?
Part 1 - Part 2

Moonlight Miles: Goodsprings - Primm, no pairings, PG
Summary: A bit of backstory for the Incoming/Outgoing F!Courier.

The Pitt and the Swinger
Summary: An AU snippet branching out of Outgoing.

Outgoing
Summary: Sequel to Incoming, because a lovely kinkmeme anon wanted an ass-kicking pregnant courier, and I had one lying around.
Part 1

Incoming, F!Courier/Benny, NC-17
Summary: Post-apocalyptia really needs to rediscover latex.
Part 1 - Part 2

Strangers in the Night, F!Courier/Lonesome Drifter, PG-13
Summary: The Mojave wasteland singles’ scene is hard.
Part 1

Vae Victis (Woe to the Conquered), Benny/Praetorian, NC-17 (Warning: dub/non-con)
Summary: Advanced interrogation methods meet advanced sheer awesomeness; neither emerges victorious.
Part 1

The Melody Lingers On, Benny/Swank, Hard R
Summary: I like the delicious maintainer's summary: "Swank gets a last roll in the hay with Benny."
Part 1

Watchmen / Fallout 3

In All This Blood and Thunder, no pairings, PG-13 for violence
Summary: Rorschach unwittingly enters the Fallout universe. Probably won't make much sense unless you've played at least the main storyline. Possibly not even then.
Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5 - Part 6 - Part 7 - Part 8

Watchmen / Neuromancer

All Quiet on the Liminal Fringe, Volume 1, OT3, PG – NC-17 for sex and violence
Summary: Dreiberg, Kovacs, and Laurie Isham are vigilante cowboys dedicated to making life difficult for the cybercriminals and megacorps that keep a stranglehold on a dystopian world’s 11 billion lives.
Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5 - Part 6 - Part 7 - Part 8 - Part 9 - Part 10 - Part 11 - Part 12

Watchmen

Laugh, And You Laugh Alone, Laurie/Jon, NC-17
Summary: No one will hire the Silk Spectre, not even the cops, not even a government happy to pay scum like the Comedian. Jon doesn’t need my company, not really. I’ve got more designer jeans than Brooke Shields, and nowhere to wear them, and nobody needs me, and I’m bored out of my mind.
Part 1

Soliciting, PG-13
Summary: Nite Owl meets Brooklyn’s Mother of the Year.
Part 1

Thomas Harris’s Blues, Rorschach/Nite Owl, PG
Summary: Hollis can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome he is.
Part 1

A couple of captcha fics here.

Exorcism, Rorschach/Nite Owl, NC-17
Summary: Dan has a vivid and mean-spirited imagination.
Part 1

Masquerade, Daniel/Walter, NC-17
Summary: Sundry ideas nicked from the kink meme. Rorschach secretly follows Nite Owl and Ozymandias’ investigation into a notorious vice club, with surprising results. And, as always, by ‘surprising results,’ I mean ‘really awkward sexy time.’ For once, this is set in a purely movie!verse, meaning Walter is five or so years into vigilantism, but still a young ‘un of 21, and Daniel is somewhat older.
Part 1 - Part 2

Compromise, Comedian/Rorschach, NC-17 (Warning: dubcon)
Summary: Late 1960s - the brief Crimebusters heyday. Now with more sex.
Part 1

Imposition, Comedian/Rorschach, NC-17
Sequel to: Compromise
Summary: Sex! Angst! ...and stuff.
Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4

Clean, Nite Owl/Rorschach, NC-17
Summary: Hrm...I wanted to get Rorschach naked. So I packed every possible cliché around that idea and called it a story.
Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3

It’s how he remembers it. How true that makes it… His head had been fit to bust, among other things, and there’d been something, that little scrape with his boys and hers. Her mooks, probably today still walking the scrap walls around his other lady, the one dressed in pre-war neon and dreams instead of nylon, eyes peeled and trigger fingers cocked for the sight of his fine hide.Collapse )

His mind isn’t on what he’s doing, despite how dearly he’s paid for it. No, it’s like a naughty dog, always returning to its vomit.Collapse )

literary anhedonia: Vonnegut [Dec. 17th, 2012|02:46 pm]
mustinvestigate
[Tags|, , ]

I should like Kurt Vonnegut. There was Slaughterhouse-Five, which pretty much everyone is impressed by, and that short story with the people wearing heavy weights and having loud noises go off regularly to ensure everyone’s “equal,” you can’t pass the 7th grade without reading that one two or three times. Any list of Vonnegut quotes will have some real winners.

Still, the recent two I randomly found on library and Fopp shelves (The Sirens of Titan and God Bless you Mr Rosewater) have mostly made me impatient. Which isn’t exactly fair – they came out in 1959 and 1965. Cleverly presenting the figures of admiration and culture of American life as inherently ridiculous was somewhat radical then, probably. 2012-me, reading these, nonetheless rolls eyes and thinks “Yes, this has all been thoroughly covered in my Hawkeye Pierce studies, thanks.”

Ok, one genuine complaint I have is his fictional women. They’re so flat (ok, so are the men), but also…externally observed, even in their own head. Even to themselves, they exist to relate to men, usually in resenting husband’s fiscal provisions or pesky sex drives.

Which could be part of the satire. I don’t know. Clearly, there is something not-a-soul where my soul should be.

Fic: Moonlight Miles: Primm [Nov. 18th, 2012|08:56 am]

Title: Moonlight Miles: Primm
Author: MustInvestigate
Disclaimer: I only own action figures
Rating: PG
Character(s)/Pairing: none
Warning(s): none
Summary: A bit of backstory for the Incoming/Outgoing F!Courier.


Part 1: Goodsprings

Too many guns, too little sleep, and no brains among ‘em, Ruby thinks just after that savage kicks her way inside Vicky & Vance’s front door, hauling a load half again as large as herself. The blast of high noon light blinds Primm’s survivors, and they raise their pieces pointing every which-a-way. Ruby can just about hear the squeak of two dozen trigger springs when her damn fool husband screams.Collapse )

random fly by: Potterville [Jan. 9th, 2012|08:50 pm]

After a rough start to 2012, we settled in for a weekend of movies that included the last three Harry Potters. While I’ve now seen all the movies, I still don’t feel qualified to say a thing about them. Especially since I’ve never read the books, somehow. The fandom is just too big and too erudite to feel up to anything but listening to it.

What did strike me as funny, tho, was how little interest I had in the overall plot (and, dare I say it, the movies themselves seemed to share that?). I enjoyed the ficcy aspects, the friendships and new romances weathering the strains of adolescence and very adult disasters the actual adults wouldn’t or couldn’t fix, the unfolding backstories of the previous generation, and the whole Neville thing. I liked Harry only when he was stumbling around lost and plugging away at a seemingly impossible task anyway. All the in-between bits where fandom thrives like inspired grout-mold.

It makes me wonder if the textual poachers are getting poached in return, subtly (or not) courted because fandom means investment means actual dineros invested…or because something close to a generation has grown up with fandoms and those in the pro expect more frosting on the cake in their own work?

If inconvenient, come all the same [Dec. 24th, 2011|06:36 pm]

Then, there’s Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, another enjoyable Robert Downey Jr movie with several problematic elements that would make me yell at the screen except oh look they’re pandering right at me again, and how! All mollified…

This is maybe the male-produced first action flick deliberately, consciously aimed at female slashers.Collapse )

So, to sum up…yes, I am that shallow.

If you want to understand me, watch my movies...rather than this one, really. [Dec. 23rd, 2011|11:14 am]

[Tags|, , ]

There’s something about a lot of early-90s films I can’t quite define, part 80s hangover, part unearned smugness mixed with genuine hope and celebration of human connectedness, but without much individual character. It’s an era I sort of missed, as that’s when my family moved to East Bumperfuck, the parents split up for a while, and culture was whatever came in on the two channels the aerial could pick up. Gen X was something happening in Newsweek that I couldn’t wait to be a teenager and join in on. All this to say, I go into these films expecting to feel like the prodigal son, not an alien anthropologist.



Like, Chaplin. Early Hollywood stuff is inherently great...Collapse )

So…yeah. An enjoyable film, but it made me yell at the screen.

And sort of ship Charlie and Douglas Fairbanks. Their love needs no stunt doubles!
