It's taken me all year, but I finally finished my Take That spy AU. I was hoping to get it up in time for [livejournal.com profile] soundofthesurf's birthday, but it's a few days late. (I did have it finished in time, but it's a long one and it's taken a few days to do a final edit on it.)

Happy Birthday, my dear!

Secret Agent Men (44220 words)
Fandom: Take That (Band)
Pairings: Mark Owen/Robbie Williams, Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: When Robbie is made a Double O agent, it sets off a series of events that will leave no one he knows unchanged.
Notes: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] halotolerant for stellar Britpicking duties, and m. butterfly for her usual fantastic beta skills.

Unless I exercise remarkably bad judgment and sign up for [livejournal.com profile] picfor1000, this will be my last bit of writing until I either get my black belt or die trying. From here until June I will be attempting to go to bed early, get up early, and do a lot of running and training.

I've managed a breakthrough on my TT spy story and written 5,000 words this week. Hooray! I'm also upgrading the number of chapters I think this is going to take to 5.

Secret Agent Men (12476 words)
Pairings: Mark Owen/Robbie Williams, Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Notes: Inspired by Take That's theme song for Kingsman: Secret Service and a series of discussions on Tumblr. I've thrown the boys more into a Bondian version of MI6 than into the Kingsmen. Thanks to m. butterfly and [livejournal.com profile] halotolerant for betaing this beast.

And for fun, here's one of the pics that was an inspiration for the story and particularly this chapter:Cigarette-smoking, slightly battered Markie )

For months, I've been struggling to find time, energy and inspiration to write. Amongst the stories I have on the go is a Take That spy AU, which seems to have been stuck at the 14,000 word mark for longer than I care to remember. But this week things have finally started to shake free. I've got a good chunk of the next section done, and am pretty sure I know how the rest of it is going to go.

To celebrate, and as an experiment, I've decided to do something I've never done before and start posting the story as a WIP. I normally wouldn't consider this, but I've got the first two chapters polished to within an inch of their lives and don't think I'll futz with them any more. I'm also hoping knowing the first part is out there in the world will keep me working steadily on the rest.

Here goes nothing...

It's been a slow writing year for me, but I was very glad I managed to put together a short story as a birthday pressie for [livejournal.com profile] soundofthesurf, one of the best fannish friends a gal could have

I finally have a few moments, so here's my latest Take That story.

A Little Out of Reach (3619 words)
Pairing: Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: An unexpected phone makes Howard admit to something he's long hidden. But is it too late?
Notes: Written for the "loss of voice" square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card, and inspired by my paranoia about Jason seemingly being MIA during the boys' recent recording sessions. Thanks, as always, to my lovely first reader, [livejournal.com profile] soundofthesurf, and my fab beta, m. butterfly.

So one thing that happened at MediaWest this year was a little conversation I had with m. butterfly, one of my best friends, fannish and otherwise. She'd been trying to pimp everyone we talked to into the Spartacus fandom, and was bemoaning the fact that while I'd managed to suck her into a few of my fandoms (Pros and TT chief among them), she'd never successfully managed to get me into any of hers.

As a joke, I said "Well, I could write you a Take That/Spartacus crossover."

Except apparently my muse didn't realize I was joking and immediately started pointing out how awesome Howard would be as a gladiator, and how great a Roman Jason would be, and wouldn't Markie make a cute little slave boy.

Then yesterday I wrote the first scene.

I now have 650 words of TT/Spartacus slash, and need to find time to watch all of Spartacus, and do extra research on Spartacus' rebellion and the era of Roman life in general so I can write the rest of what will no doubt turn out to be another fucking epic.

And if anyone has any brilliant ideas about how I can turn Howard into a Roman gladiator name, I'd appreciate it. (I don't think Howardus is going to cut it. *g*)

My first fic of the year, and it's a month late Christmas story. (The writing went slooowly on this one, and now that it's done I don't want to hold onto it until next year.)

Title: Dreaming of a White Christmas
Pairings: Howard/Jason, Mark/Robbie
Word Count: 7379
Notes: AU. It's a sequel to my Mark and Rob as teenage runaways story, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. I didn't quite mean to whump Mark quite so much in this, but my muse had other plans.

Here's the monster trope bingo story. I can honestly say I've never written anything quite like it.

The Other Side (20210 words) by PR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Pairings: Mark/Robbie, and a hint of Howard/Jason
Summary: It would never have happened if Mark hadn't gone to Nigel's party that Friday night.

Thanks, as always, to [livejournal.com profile] soundofthesurf for being my lovely first reader, m. butterfly for her usual impeccable edit, and [livejournal.com profile] halotolerant for helping make it a better story.

Three stories to go and I'll have a line for bingo. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I suppose, depending on whether you're the reader or the writer) at least one of those stories looks to be another massive, plot-heavy one. I think there will be writing of fun, short smut before I tackle that one.

A big happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] soundofthesurf, from me and a couple of English pop stars.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

In celebration, and as thanks for dragging me into a fab fandom, I seem to have written you a small Take That fic.

It's a sequel to Some Desperate Glory, since I have noticed that you're a little bit fond of military fic. Plus, Howard started talking to me and would quit until I'd got his story down.

Yes, I've managed to write more Take That fic. Try not to look too surprised.

Begin (3353 words) by faviconPR Zed

More Take That fic, one more pairing, and yes, again it falls on the smutty side of things.

Between (2374 words) by faviconPR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Pairing: Jason Orange/Mark Owen
Summary: A few years after the band breaks up, a chance encounter on a train brings Mark and Jason together. A follow up to Believe.
Notes: Inspired by certain comments of [livejournal.com profile] lomh. You have only yourself to blame. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] soundofthesurf for assuring me it wasn't crap, and to [livejournal.com profile] cenea for finding ways to make it better.

When I started them, I thought both this and Believe were standalones, but it seems they're related. And also, it seems that there's a third story in the works, this time from Mark's POV.
