Summary: For someone who works with explosives, Dave is much too easily startled.
Author’s Note: Day late and a dollar short as always.  Wrote this for last week’s weekend challenge.  My prompt was ‘Based on how I react when toast pops out of the toaster, I will never look cool walking away from an explosion’.  Wasn’t sure what to do with this at first and then it came to me…

Rating: PG-13

Pairing: Gen

Rating: PG
Summary: Ali and Shana need a night out.  Ali’s brother, on the other hand, thinks he needs to come along.
Author’s note: Written for the Weekend Challenge at 1_Million_Words for the prompt of: “Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night.”  Not sure how well I incorporated it into this fic.  Also not sure that there’s much of a point to this fic either, but eh, when has there ever been a point to my writing?  Should probably take this and run with it though, let them all have a little fun for the night.

Title: The Break Up
Fandom: Code Red Original Fic
Pairing: Allyson Hart/Bryan Tracey
Rating: PG for some language
Word Count: 1,637
New Words: 674
Summary: Ali’s boyfriend crosses the line and she kicks him to the curb. 
Author’s Note: See here for a full dissertation on this series.  This is part of an extremely old series that I started back in 2006 or so.  This particular short was written exactly eight years ago yesterday (1/31/07).  I got to a point where I made it halfway through a multi-chapter fic and just… stopped. I’m hoping that by reworking, reediting, and reposting these fics I can get back and finish that one that’s been languishing since February 2010.  Eh, what’s five years, right? 

Oh, and don’t have a heart attack… it’s het.  Hah. (Well, up to a point it is… but you’ll see that when we get there.)

P. S. That's my Ali icon, btw.

And so it begins... bring on Blake! )
asphaltcowgrrl: (Ali animu)
Title: Who Me?  Forget?
Fandom: Code Red Original Fic
Pairing: Ali/Blake
Rating: G
Word Count: 720
Summary: Blake is taking the kids on a plane trip.  By himself.  Ali’s not so sure he’s up to the task.
Author’s Note: I don’t write much in this ‘world’ these days and I miss them.  Ali is my longest-running character, one I met when I was in elementary school, believe it or not.  Scary that she still talks to me after all these years.  Side note: Blake is something like 97.3% based on my husband.  So, that ought to tell you something, because I could see this happening in my home.  For real. Written for the Friday Comment Fic at [ profile] 1_million_words.

Title: Fly, Little Bird
Pairing: Ali Matson/Paulo (who after all these years still doesn’t have a last name, poor guy)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5,126

Short Summary: I was given the prompt of:

Every time I try to walk away
Something makes me turn around and stay

"I Can't Tell You Why" – The Eagles

in the [ profile] 1_million_words community and this was my response.  Ali ponders her history with Paulo, a dangerous, elusive bad guy that she shares an intricate past with.

The prompt was:

Munificent (adjective)
mu·nif·i·cent [myoo-nif-uh-suhnt]

1. extremely liberal in giving; very generous.
2. characterized by great generosity: a munificent bequest.

Blake was many things, she knew – arrogant, childish, often drunken – but there was one thing he was not and that was selfish.  Not with his money, not with his time, and definitely not with his heart.  He had an awful lot of faults but at the center of it all, he was a damn good man.  Ali had more than enough proof of that.

 “What are you doing, Blake?”  Ali had wandered out of the kitchen, cereal bowl still in hand, to find her husband making a disaster of her finally clean living room.

Blake looked up from a pile of parts and plastic pieces, a set of assembly instructions in one hand.  “Building something,” he said.
