The Fanfic100 Stories
Because I apparently have a poor sense of self-preservation, I decided to sign up for the Fanfic100 Challenge on LiveJournal. The deceptively simple premise: claim a fandom, along with a character or pairing, and then write 100 stories centering around that claim, each story inspired by one of the prompts provided. I requested CSI:NY and Mac/Danny.
I don't want to abuse my generously-given webspace, so I'm just going to provide the table of prompts and story descriptions, with links back to the stories on my LJ. I began this challenge on October 10, 2005, and I'm going to keep going until it's done. Please check back here for updates.
Tipping Point (Prompt 001: Beginnings): Sooner or later, certain things become inevitable. R for sexual content and language.
Danny kisses him with serious intent.
When Is a Door (Prompt 004: Insides): Danny knows when it's time to cut his losses. Post-ep for "Trapped"; spoilers for that episode as well as for "On the Job" and "What You See Is What You See," and the early part of S2. NC-17 for explicit sex and language
He sees in the medicine cabinet mirror that Mac is standing behind him.
Atlantic City (Prompt 007: Days): Maybe everything that dies someday comes back. Post-ep for "Run Silent, Run Deep." NC-17 for explicit sex and language.
He thinks that maybe that's where it all really started to go wrong: the night Louie shoved him away, the night he never got to go to Atlantic City.
Haunted (Prompt 011: Red): I'm haunted by the lives that wove the web inside my haunted head. PG-13 for disturbing images.
There's a body, there's blood, and there's him with his kit.
Not the same as Danny, no, but it's just as important, and if only he could figure out the word for one, maybe he'd be able to figure out the word for the other, too.
There are cherry blossom petals over the dead woman's eyes and on her mouth.
He and Danny have become friends over the past few weeks.
The Art of the Possible (Prompt 022: Enemies): Seduction can be a dangerous game. General S2 spoilers; this takes place sometime before "City of the Dolls." A sequel, of sorts, to "Fall from Grace". NC-17 for explicit sex and language.
Pink mouth against white skin against red leather.
It's time for them to put up or shut up, and that means that tonight is going to be all about seduction.
Good Enough (Prompt 026: Teammates): Stella just wants everyone to have nice things. General S2 spoilers and specific ones for "Trapped" and "Stuck on You." PG for language.
I'm not sure that you understand exactly what it is you're asking me to do here, Stella.
The Coastal Shelf (Prompt 027: Parents): Everyone is running from something, and Danny knows it. PG for language.
I was just thinking that I really don't know that much about you. Your background, that is.
Funeral Suit (Prompt 030: Death): Let the boys know that I died standing pat. Set during "Charge of This Post." Spoilers for that episode and for "Run Silent, Run Deep" and "Heroes." PG for language.
Never a time when this will get easier, or when he'll be able to let any of them go.
He can't remember what Danny tastes like now.
Every Day a Little Death (Prompt 034: Not Enough): Every move and every breath (and you hardly feel a thing) brings a perfect little death. Mild general spoilers for S2. NC-17 for explicit sex and language.
He's even considered going to Confession, something he hasn't done in years, but he wouldn't know where to start.
Restraint (Prompt 038: Touch): Testing the limits. NC-17 for explicit sex and language. Includes light bondage.
So. What are we going to do with you?
Heat (Prompt 039: Taste): It's sex you're trading up for what you hope is love. NC-17 for explicit sex and language.
He gets Mac backed up against the wall and then the first thing he does is loosen that damn tie of his.
A Game of You (Prompt 041: Shapes): You can be me when I'm gone. General S2 spoilers; this story is set prior to the episode "Trapped." R for explicit sex and language.
All that's left between him and Mac is the negative space, the absence of the thing rather than the thing itself.
Not Fade Away (Prompt 042: Triangle): Love and safety don't go together, and love has a wide reach. Sequel to Atlantic City and Place to Rest. Set after "All Access"; spoilers for that and for "Run Silent, Run Deep." PG for language and sexual content.
Mac doesn't flinch away, not then and not when Danny steps even closer and wraps his arms around Mac's waist.
Christmastime in the City (Prompt 046: Star): It's Christmastime in New York City, and Danny is attempting to celebrate. PG for inexplicit sexual content and brief language. Birthday!fic for cim.
Today's Grey Skies (Prompt 052: Fire): Tomorrow is tears; you'll have to wait 'till yesterday is here. Set during "Run Silent, Run Deep." PG for implied sex.
Summer Out of Reach (Prompt 060: Drink): Danny believes in the value of experimentation. Set post-S2; general spoilers for the entire season.
I don't play the fiddle, he says seriously.
Long Way Down (Prompt 063: Summer): A July heatwave, a broken air conditioner, and an ill-timed bout of nostalgia all add up to Danny finding himself in sore need of some distraction. NC-17 for explicit sex and language.
Down on Mermaid Avenue (Prompt 066: Rain): Ships trail sirens in their wake. Post-ep for "Live Or Let Die." R for semi-explicit sex and language.
Fall from Grace (Prompt 071: Broken): The worst part is surviving. Set during "Corporate Warriors"; general S2 spoilers. PG-13 for language and sexual references.
Still and all, no matter how smart Stella is, or how sensitive she might be, she doesn't know the whole story, and she's just flat-out wrong about him and Mac being anything at all alike.
Shift (Prompt 079: When?): Asking the important questions. R for sexual content and language.
Aftermath (Prompt 087: Life): In the aftermath, there are no right words. Post-ep for "Charge of This Post." Spoilers for that episode, with vague reference to "Heroes."
