       “Why marine life?” Kakyoin whispers, staring at the ceiling.
       There’s a grumble from the next bed.  “Go to sleep, Noriaki.”
       He holds his breath for a second.  Despite how predictable Jotaro seems, he’s actually master of the unexpected.  “I can’t,” he confesses, and for one awful second stretched to infinity, the silence is accusing.  Then…
       “Did you know there’s a species of crab that will have a heart attack if you chase it too long?”
       Instantly Kakyoin sits up, eyes wide.  “You’re making that up.”
       “Nope.”  One of Jotaro’s huge hands comes to rest on the cap placed above his face.  The rest of him doesn’t move.  Then, again: “Did you know that most tidal pools are somewhat unique in their species composition, even ones only a meter apart?”
       The only interest Kakyoin usually has for this sort of thing is as an amateur artist, but he turns on his stomach, fluffing his pillow, facing his friend.  “Wow,” he breathes.
       He can hear Jotaro’s grin—and it’s actually a grin and not a smirk, for once—in the deep voice.  “Did you know that octopi can learn puzzle solutions by watching another octopus complete the puzzle?”
       “That’s really cool,” he says, eyes sparkling, and then a thought occurs to him.  “You know, if you talk about all your marine knowledge tomorrow, it’ll annoy Polnareff.”
       “Challenge accepted, jerk.”  Now it’s an affectionate smile.  Jotaro puts his hand back to his side.  “Get some sleep.”
       "Good night, Jotaro," Kakyoin whispers, already relaxing.

Chapter Summary: Murphy calls to grump at Dresden about her latest arrest.

Word Count: 450
Rating: teen. for now.
Notes: 1st person.  Quite possibly from the TV!verse although the one thing that I will always include in any 'verse is the Alphas because they're awesome.  (They don't appear in this fic.  Yet.)

          My phone’s old.  It only works about half the time, which Murphy likes to attribute to the fact that it’s old, and I know to be because I’m a wizard.  It says so on my door, after all.  Honestly, older technology is more likely to work for me on that basis than your newest…whatever the kids are calling them these days.  iSomething, I think.
          Unfortunately for me and a late night clearing out imps from an old warehouse, today was one of the days my fickle phone decided to actually work.  Its ring drilled into my ears, but given that it didn’t stop ringing, whoever was on the other end was willing to wait on my lazy butt, and not likely to go away anytime soon.  The quicker I answered, the quicker I could return to the Dreamlands.
          When I picked up, I wasn’t given a chance to greet my caller.  “Please tell me he’s not with you.”
          I blink.  It’s Murphy on the other end, and she’s ticked.  Which is kind of her usual state of being, not that I’m about to tell her that.  I do actually have some self-preservation instincts, despite what some people will tell you.
          “Who?” I stifle the yawn.  She won’t appreciate it.
          As much as I wish it wasn’t the case, being out of the loop happens more often than I’d like.
          “The ‘exorcist’ I just arrested.  Name of John Masters.”
          I try to think, but I’m still feeling fuzzy.  “I don’t think I’ve ever heard of him, no.”  This time I can’t keep the yawn in.  It has a mind of its own.
          “Get you up, did I?”  She’s still seething.
          “Hey, I do work more often than you think.”
          That earns a snort.  Which is a better direction, but it’s important to redirect the anger elsewhere.  “What’d this exorcist do?”  He could be legit, I guess, like me, Chicago’s Only Wizard for Hire.  Most of the time they’re in the spotlight or taking pay, though, they’re fakes.  I’m an exception.
          “Petty arson, trespassing—sound familiar, Harry?”  At least I’m back to a first-name basis even if I resent the implications.  “There’s no question that he did it.  The only reason he’s being let go is the head of the family dropped the charges.”
          I yawn again.  “I’ll ask around.  There are other people I can talk to and you didn’t hear that from me.”
          “I wish you would,” she says, and maybe I should remind her about wishes again.  But not now, because I don’t have the brainpower to argue with her about that.  “Letting him go—my instincts are screaming at me this is a bad idea, and I want to know—I suppose I want to know that even if I can’t stop him, your—wizard cops or whatever can.”
          I sigh and reassure her.  “I’ll figure out if he’s legit.  If he’s real, whether or not he’s registered, they’ll be able to deal with him.  But I’ll definitely want to be more awake before I deal with any Wardens.  Surprisingly, I’m no more a favorite of theirs than yours.”
          She laughs at that.  “I’m pretty sure I still like you better.”  She hangs up before I can respond.

         Unfortunately, it turns out that the semi-eidetic memory has a flaw: to remember something, he has to actually pay attention to it first.  Maybe it’s a survival mechanism to avoid drowning in the data but it’s hard to remember to be grateful as he’s, once again, staring at a blank history test just ‘cause the class bores him.  There aren’t even HYDRA or SHIELD historical details to perk his interest.

Another fun thing from watching the Captain America credits: Peter Stark was a Hydra Lieutenant.  Like, Howard should totally reexamine his life choices, but Peter???  Peter definitely needs help.  /grins
Also, Riley's a decent guy, generally, but that ending was a dick move, and Xander was an ass, so.  Fixing that.  (He'll mess up later, in other ways, but ways that make more sense and aren't just punish Buffy for anything she does.  For one thing, related to this he's gonna forget this about Willow with the whole Alicia thing and she still has to yell at him.)
Plus there is absolutely nothing wrong with being single.  'Course, in canon, part of it is that Xander doesn't see the unhealthy relationship bit of it and is just like "this guy is the best relationship you've ever had" but still.  Meh.

        “Bet.”  Xander’s leaning forward, grinning mischievously.  “Tasha already has a DNA sample and is sending it to SHIELD to get it analyzed as we speak.”
        Tony doesn’t look up from the paper.  “I see that, and I’ll raise you that Mr. Eyepatch won’t believe the results and send the ferocious assassin to nab another sample from you just to see.”
        Xander frowns.  “Damn.  Curse you and your extensive gambling knowledge.”

I only learned about Cinemark's Marvel XD today but I got to see Iron Man again so it's a fair trade.
Things I didn't notice the first time (from the credits):
One of Downey's assistants was named Christine.
Tony's Catering provided some food for the crew.
I was amused.

         Xander doesn’t hear the steps entering his warehouse with his physical ears over the earmuffs and his pounding at the anvil.  It’s the mental tap on his shoulder, courtesy of a new sentry alarm spell he and White Star worked out, that gets his attention, and he carefully places the hammer aside and wipes the sweat off his forehead, tugging the earmuffs down around his shoulders.
         He turns to see Giles crossing the floor carefully, freezing in shock.  “I didn’t—sorry—”
         Xander takes pity on him, crossing the floor and meeting him halfway.  “I’m cool.  You’re not a mad scientist.  I’m not gonna lose my mind now.”
         “I know no one else asked about this, but—if you need to talk about anything that happened, I’m sure your time spent in the Initiative could not have been a cake walk, as you’ve been trying to get the others to believe.”  It’s…impressive, honestly.  Sometimes Giles backs away, doesn’t try to be the father figure because honestly, as a Watcher he hadn’t really signed up for it, doesn’t know what to do.  Now, he’s actually noticing, actually trying, and that—what else can Xander ask for?
         “I’m—I might.  Maybe.  Don’t feel about talking about it now, though, so don’t hold your breath.”  He glances at the papers in Giles’ hands and frowns.  “If that’s homework I’ve missed, you can head right back to your apartment, though.”
         “No—” and yeah, that was a mistake, reminding Giles he doesn’t have his other job anymore.  “It’s—I want help looking through the files the Initiative had.”
         Xander’s mind goes cold, but he steels himself into dealing.  “Do you have digital data as well?  Star could lend a digital hand.”
         “I still have the disks.”  Giles holds them up, still hesitant.  “It’s not…too much, is it?”
         Xander grins, shoving back all the trauma for the others to deal with.  “Hey, I tend to obsessively categorize anything that scares me.  Makes me feel more in control.  That’ll help me, and I can help, too, which always makes me feel better, so count me in.”

         First, I'd like to say that I think it's fun/funny that most of my important Buffy news comes in the form of the Sunnydale Herald.
         Now, to get down to business:
         The news about Joss Whedon...actually doesn't change a thing for me in terms of Buffy, other than freaking me out a little.  Why?
         I've always hated Dollhouse.  I found it a little interesting, plotwise, and it's the type where it starts conversations, which is occasionally an important service, but unlike my friends who loved it just like the rest of his works I actually found myself dreading the weekly meet-ups to watch it and counting down the episodes until we could move on to something else.  I hate Whedon's work in Marvel, aside from a few scenes, because it was his touch that (maybe) paved the way to Self-Righteous Asshole Steve Rogers, which just...no.  (And might have led to Hydra!Cap which is still an abomination unto mankind.)  I hate that the Avengers movie ignored any character development in Tony, which is one of the biggest reasons I love Iron Man 3.  I suspect he was behind the decision to break Tony and Pepper up, which--okay, Tony's not one to stay in relationships, usually, but this is freaking Pepper and do we need to have a discussion about a) character development and b) how WE DON'T SEE ENOUGH HEALTHY LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS IN TV BECAUSE DAMMIT WATCHING AN AWESOME COUPLE HAVE FIGHTS AND MAKE UP AND DEAL WITH LIFE'S SHENANIGANS TOGETHER IS JUST AS INTERESTING AND IN SOME CASES IS MORE SO THAN ALL THE ANGST 'LET'S BREAK THEM UP' THINGS??  Why?  I love Wash/Zoe and we don't see much of them as a couple being all couply and I suspect personal issues lead to him having issues writing healthy long term relationships, but I digress.
         The point is, I've never worshiped the ground beneath the man's feet.  I've never seen him as The Last Great Feminist, or whatever he's trying to brand himself.  I've never just loved his works unconditionally.  Buffy and Angel and Firefly are problematic works.  I love them, but there are just some really flawed parts of them, and I've never ignored that.  All the characters do stupid things.  And sometimes the stupid things are things people would do, and are in character, and the characters grow past them, so as dumb as they are, I don't retcon those.  And some things, I thought, were written mostly for the angst or the CWness of it all, but we're learning now that maybe they were written for darker reasons, maybe.
         I've always thought that the worst parts of Xander are Joss Whedon projecting.  That hasn't changed.
         I love the dialogue.  That hasn't changed.  I love huge parts of it, the show in general (obviously), but the parts I don't like haven't changed, nor have the things Whedon has written that I don't like.
         The thing is, shows especially are huge creative endeavors brought to life by a huge group of people.  Whedon's not responsible for every single awesome thing on Buffy and maybe his bad contributions outweigh the good.  But you know what?  There were awesome actors, and awesome script writers, and the whole freakin' fandom, and we made it our own, so you know what, Whedon?  You can't take the sky from me.

OOOH boy this is dark.
It's basically revisiting the darkness of the Suzuha ending if you've played/watched the Visual Novel as opposed to the anime.
I'm actually kind of scared as this already got super dark and there's people listed for future fic that would just break me even more and.
This is as soul-crushing as that one Silent Hill Sherlock fic.

If no one saw it, the comment about Eclipse parties being Woodstock for nerds was fantastic.  It was a cool experience, hence CELEBRATIN' WIT FIC OH YEAH.
Not sure what universe this occurs in, other than Clay and Klavier meet in this fic and Edgeworth is actually a prosecutor in this one.  Also, not sure where this occurs, but since Japanifornia is a really weird location anyway we're ignoring that.

Notes: The only thing I'm sure of is this is a messed-up post-Glory (i.e. they beat her but not completely and it messed up the world).  This might be based on one of my early ideas where Xander turned out to actually be a bastard and his father is actually one of the Generals of one of the Hell Dimensions (the Underworld) rather than Tony Harris.  And yes, there's flirting.  This version's based on Dante, what do you expect?

Get hype!


Image is, yes, from The Secret World vanilla.  And yes, I created Josie to play (a while ago).  Unfortunately, GIMP doesn't have any manga filters, but I could at least do crazy Araki colors.  /grin  Her real color is red, and it's generally longer than shown as a kind of combat taunt.
She probably stole her dad's bike and uniform and is riding around like the Jojo she is.
