Yes, the subject line does not lie. Last night I posted the Prologue to Beg, Borrow, or Steal which is a sequel to Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves.. It's on AO3, but I guess I'll post it here too. It's finished and undergoing beta and I'll post chunks as I get them revised or on Fridays if I have a buffer. It's about 60,000 words of crossover with SG-1, NCIS and NCIS: LA (and owes a lot to some of my favorite fics and a little to my desire to either slap certain characters or better yet the writers).

At the same time, I'm actively writing the third sequel, Lawyers, Guns, and Money..

Summary: Atlantis and Earth could help each other, if politics, plots and murder don't get in the way. But Leroy Jethro Gibbs might blow everything out of the water.

And tomorrow is [personal profile] springwoof's birthday! Have a happy Halloween one!

It's something I wonder about sometimes, how some fandoms spawn AUs, some spawn just one that is shared and becomes as big as canon setting, and others have certain tropes that seem to take over. This is based on my wide, but not by any means complete, reading habits. I've noticed a couple of trends though.

The Losers seems to call to something in many of us to write werewolf or shapechanger fic and Hawaii Five-O has shapeshifting of the selkie sort or something that involves ocean magic. Usually for Steve, but then, the fandom seems mostly focused on the slashtasticness of the Steve/Danny pairing (and why not, canon itself is one step away from them waking up in bed together naked.... wait, I want that episode, even if played for laughs, so the vidders can use it), in Due South I've read many a genderswitch, and M7 brings the seven to the present day.

Anyway, you can blame this bit of mental wandering on [personal profile] murron, who shares my love of 1940s era men's fashion apparently, which has lead me to this idea: Prohibition era The Fast and the Furious. Tommy guns, zoot suits, big band music and speakeasies, moonshiners bringing booze across the border from  Canada, gangsters, femme fatales...

Do you think that counts as a kink? I could prompt it at the kinkmeme...
