Summary: danae_b prompted me to write a fic, this is the result.

Gene prides himself on his ability to suss people out and have a working idea about their backstory within about ten minutes of contact. He’s good at predicting what they’ve done and what they’re yet to do. He knows when people are lying—to him or to themselves.

So it vexes him that Sam is a mystery.

Title: A Time and a Place
Author: danae_b
Rating: Brown Cortina (over all, Brown Cortina for this part) (across both parts, we have: established relationship, Gene's a Christmas grouch, a dash of casefic and then Christmas fluff and smut)
Pairings/Characters: Sam/Gene // Sam, Gene, OCs aplenty, Gene's mum
Word Count: 5k in this part (12.5k total)
Notes: From the moment I started this story, I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do with it and I pretty much think I nailed it. It was fun to write, and I'm pretty dang pleased with how it turned out, and I hope if you read it that you enjoy it, that it imparts a bit of holiday joy <3<3<3
Endless thanks go to lozenger8 for the wonderful beta, as well as all the hand-holding in general, and all of her picky-pain dedication ;) ♥
Summary: It's supposed to be no big deal, what they do on Christmas.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you may respond to the drabble challenge at ANY point during the week, not only the day that it's posted. You can also use the awfully handy "track this" button if you want to keep an eye on it.

I'm a little early in saying this, but Merry Christmas!

1st-Dec-2016 08:50 am - Advent Calendar 2016 Signups
This is where you can pledge to post a thing during the month of December! Posts can be anything you like - get creative! In previous years we've had LoM wrapping paper, tree decorations, jigsaw puzzles, games, fic, fanart, graphics, gifs and recs. It needn't be holiday themed, although it can be, the idea is just to fill as many 'doors'/days in the month with LoM stuff as we can.

Previous years: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015

Comment below with a date (or two!) you can post something during the month and we'll all enjoy the festive spirit on the comm.

Pairing: Sam/Gene
Wordcount: 1,421
Summary: Gene falls into a canal and gets very sick.
Notes: To the wonderful xysabridde, whose birthday is today: I had the pleasure of meeting up with you again recently. I've not laughed so hard before or since. Please have a moo-gnificent day. (And no, the title is not a typo.) To fern_tree and little_cello: River Diseases! I finally wrote it!
Warning: mentions of unpleasant bodily functions associated with sick bugs...

Title: From the Start
Author: danae_b
Rating: White Cortina
Pairing: Sam/Maya, Sam/Annie, Sam/Gene
Word Count: 600 words exactly (a set of six drabbles)
Notes: Just a passing look at Sam and some of the relationships in his life. Not an upbeat piece, but not meant to be an intentional downer. It is what it is. (It also doesn't try to put one of these on a pedestal in relation to the others.) I probably first meant to post this as a bittersweet something for Valentine's day (way back in 2014 >.>), but at this point? Who really knows.
For such a short thing, I've been working on it ages. Endless thanks are due to talkingtothesky, for all the time and support she gave me when I was first trying to beat this into postable shape, pretty much forever ago. I kept working on this and finally, finally, after duckyone and lozenger8 read through and held my hand (thanks <3) I think it's ready.
Also, why not post this after the pornfest I just put up? Balances things out quite nicely, I think.
Summary: Sam tries.

Title: Close Quarters
Author: danae_b
Rating: Brown Cortina (established relationship, utter pwp, car sex, some leather kink)
Pairing: Sam/Gene
Word Count: 746 words
Notes: A short ficlet written to prove that I can do proper PWPs. All sex, no plot, also written as a distraction against some world warping things that are going on right now. This is not betead, so pardon any mistakes.
Summary: This is exactly what Sam wanted. It may be what Gene needs.

Title: The Way To His Heart
Author: danae_b
Rating: Green Cortina (some complicated and very strange flirtation is perhaps going on, first kiss)
Pairing: Sam/Gene
Word Count: 6.8k words
Notes: What started as a small pile of silliness and fluff exploded into something much larger (but that's okay, I was in the mood to write something happy).
Beta thanks go to the ever amazing lozenger8. ♥
Summary: Something is up, but Sam's not quite sure what.

I think about you from time to time, fandom, despite the changes you and I have been through. I think of friends old and new, and of those I didn't get to know but who's fic I enjoyed. So check in here, if you're still around. What are you up to? What do you love? My own response in the comments.

Title: If Wishes Were...
Author: danae_b
Rating: White Cortina (established relationship, fluff and banter)
Pairing: Sam/Gene
Word Count: 500 words
Notes: This started as a drabble, was edited into a double drabble, and now exists as a 500 word ficlet. Just some fluff for breval, not that I remember why I originally wrote it for her. ♥ Bit of a beta done by lozenger8, thanks!
Summary: The weekend is here.
