Title: Maybe Baby
Fandom: The Baby-sitters Club
Universe: Post-canon
Genre: Family
Rating: M
Warning: Sexual content
Word Count: 2,941
Summary: First in a new series. If it came down to a choice between having her, or having a child of his very own, then he would choose her every time.

Written for the “hollow” prompt on my 2017 Summer Mini Challenge table.

So if you were curious about this post on Tumblr, allow me to put you out of your misery :P

And now I shall attempt to juggle two simultaneous headcanons for the same characters at the same time )

This series is going to be written exclusively from Charlie's POV, mostly because I think that will be the most interesting way to tell this. If he could birth a baby himself, he'd do it, but he can't - so he'll go through his wife's pregnancy every step of the way, from this moment of them deciding to start trying, to her actually having the baby, and beyond.

I know kid!fic isn't everyone's cup of tea. It isn't even my cup of tea, but I've had a surprisingly nice response to the first two entries in this series. We'll see if anybody else wants to board this train with me, or if they'd rather stick to the fun falling-in-love Count Me In universe instead. These two post-canon continuums are totally unrelated. Which will make life interesting for me, because I'll be working on them both at the same time. Luckily, writing for one tends to inspire me to pursue ideas for the other, so hopefully this won't be the last SMC fill for these two in some capacity :D

Chapter Title: 26 | Just Janine
Prompt: #029 – Janine Kishi
Universe: Post-canon
Genre: Family
Rating: T
Word Count: 2,323
Summary: For a long moment, they simply regarded at each other, communicating with their eyes and hands what they couldn’t convey with words. He loved that he could express with a simple stroke of skin how much he loved her, how in awe he was of her, how proud he was to have been part of this occasion, how excited he was about their future, the three of them, in their happy little family.

The first of my two 2016 [community profile] fandom_stocking gifts, this one for [personal profile] ozqueen. I wrote and posted this fic before I read her letter for chocolate box this year, where she mentioned being interested in some Charlie Thomas & Patrick Thomas family dynamics, so win-win! =)

Points of interest... )

I enjoyed writing this immensely, and [personal profile] ozqueen enjoyed receiving it. I'm really happy I was able to push all the buttons for her that the book pushed in me. I have so many feels and so much sympathy for all of the Thomas brothers with this book - Charlie and Sam and poor David Michael, who feels left out but probably doesn't really understand why.

Hmm...I *do* have a David Michael prompt in my [community profile] babysitters100 table...maybe this is a way to fulfill it...

Chapter Title: 23 | Stubborn
Prompt: #058 – Grounded
Universe: Post-canon
Genre: Family

Word Count: 1,076
Summary: There was nothing worse than watching her fear become realized – she’d clutched his hands then much like she was now, as if he was her lifeline as she dangled over the side of some perilous cliff.

Written for the “fluffy” prompt on my 2016 Summer Mini Challenge table.

This was fun to write, and it came out more or less in one piece - a plus when writing against a deadline, LOL. It was refreshing to write this pairing again, and sort of whetted my appetite for more. And it's always a plus to knock off another [community profile] babysitters100 prompt, considering I've been working on that table for six years now o.O

Universe: Early canon (SVH #2, Secrets)

Summary: Bruce Patman was truly the last person she wanted to see, especially at that very moment.

Written for the “gently” prompt on my 2016 Summer Mini Challenge table.

So now it's time to tackle canon - and SVH #2 Secrets certainly had a juicy subplot: Lila starting rumors about Ken Matthews having an affair with the pretty young French teacher, Nora Dalton.

Title: Rendezvous
Fandom: Sweet Valley High
Universe: Pre-canon (sophomore year)
Genre: Romance
Rating: T
Word Count: 7,471
Summary: “You really know how to treat a girl, you know that, Bruce?” Lila shuddered. “Remind me to never do you a favor again.”

Links: DW | FF.net | AO3

Written for the “touch” prompt on my 2016 Summer Mini Challenge table.

Because I couldn't resist more Bruce/Lila fic - and because one idea spawned another, and then another...

Points of interest... )

This fic marks the third entry in a new series - "15-Love," which is the continuation of this Bruce/Lila-centric universe through the beginning of classic SVH canon. I didn't really feel right about putting the rest of these fics in the SVS collection, because technically nobody is anywhere *near* sophomore year anymore. Plus, I had the chance to make a new banner - win-win! =)


My current plans for my SMC table are to continue exploring this bit of headcanon-meets-actual-canon, mostly because I can't resist the idea of these two carrying on a super secret relationship behind everyone's backs, considering everything that happens in early SVH canon that involves these two. Oh, this is going to be fun! =)

Yeah, let's do this: let's explore that little pre-canon fling Bruce and Lila had before the classic SVH series started.

Universe: Mid-canon
Genre: General
Rating: K+
Word Count: 1,473
Summary: Janine Kishi did not have much in common with her sister Claudia, but what they did share, she cherished.

Written for [personal profile] imamaryanne, for the 2015 [community profile] fandom_stocking holiday exchange.

Points of interest... )

[personal profile] imamaryanne enjoyed the fic, for which I'm very happy - this isn't exactly my comfort zone when it comes to BSC fic, but it was fun to explore their sibling relationship and capture a moment in time when they were closer to each other than further apart. Janine already craves those sorts of moments, and I think as she grows up, Claudia will come to appreciate them, too.
