Summary: Despite the music, despite the obvious patchwork lie that makes up the final cut, there is something raw and honest about this damn film, something -- something Geoffrey overused and abused, applied with indiscriminate disaster to his own life, something Shakespearean.

Characters/pairing: Kara & ensemble (Kara/Zak, Kara/Lee, Kara/Sam, Kara/Leoben, a touch of Helo/Athena and Adama/Roslin)
Summary: "Maybe you want to fix too much at once," she said. "Maybe you have to ... just like yourself before you start screwing around with other people."
Notes: Written for [community profile] cliche_bingo; fills the 'high school/college AU' square. This is less a crack AU than a reincarnation fic, though. Any additions to, subtractions from, or messing around with names is not a misspelling but entirely intentional and there to make the whole thing at least a little coherently modern. Any resemblance to actual NYU is purely coincidental, since all my college experience is with schools in Massachusetts; apologies for any glaring errors.

Characters/pairing: Fraser/Kowalski
Summary: "I talked to your dad, I went through this place called the Borderland, I had a boat ride, I fed a wolf a doughnut, and I told stories for your soul," Ray interrupted. "This does not mean you are not insane."
Notes: All love and credit to Rigby for turning to me in the middle of Seeing Is Believing and saying, "Oh my god, Ray has definitely read the romance novel Francesca's talking about!" and then turning to me in the middle of A Likely Story and saying, "SEE WHAT DID I TELL YOU." It is all her fault that Ray reads romance novels. All love and credit also to [personal profile] oliviacirce for being a fabulous beta, putting up with my neuroses, and as usual being able to pinpoint exactly what was wrong.

Characters/pairing: Fraser/Kowalski/Vecchio
Summary: Ray remembered something about that from high school science class, something about how magnets with the same charge couldn't get near each other, but high school science had been wrong, because Ray was the one pinging off the walls over here, while Fraser and Vecchio were just standing there, easy as anything.
Notes: I could not possibly have completed this with any competence whatsoever without [personal profile] oliviacirce and [personal profile] nextian there to beta for me, tell me about the bit in the middle where an entire chunk of the emotional arc was missing, and generally cheerlead; I probably could also not have done it if I didn't have [personal profile] nai_is_not living down the hall and willing to listen to me first thing in the morning when I attacked her at breakfast going "IT IS EVEN LONGER NOW LISTEN TO THE NEW STUFF." Ladies, I salute & adore you.
