Beneath the cut is the first part of the new Watchers 'verse story that's been kicking around my head a while back. Here we finally get to meet The Boss (though he is not referred to as such, as he thinks of himself as "Victor" and not "Boss" like all his scared little minions loyal subordinates do) and see Yalora be really fucking scary. Needs a lot of polish, and the precocious baby dragons haven't been introduced yet, but I wanted to get this up and maybe get some critique.

We will be paying a few of the Courts-in-Exile some social calls. )
Title: Not Your Average Neighbors
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Sav and Nora get roped into another thankless assignment involving the state's resident dragons.
Notes: Aaahh, the seventh challenge; this baby remains one of my favorite written pieces. Rhakunvar and Yalora are two more favorite characters of mine, and definitely qualify as my OTP. (Yes, yes, I ship my own characters.) Contains references to Downtime and is also a semi-sequel to Let Every Eye Negotiate for Itself – I suggest you read that first if you haven't already.

You know the drill by now. Feedback!

Nearly three hours in a car put both Watchers in a foul mood, Sav doubly so because she had to drive. )
Title: Wires and Wormwood
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language
Summary: Nora finally has some free time and uses it to catch up on both her hobbies and her boozing.
Notes: Originally my sixth challenge piece over at [livejournal.com profile] randompulp. The first time I read through this I wasn't particularly happy with it - I felt I'd rushed it to meet the challenge deadline - but after read through many, many months after the fact actually has me liking it. (Which is odd, because normally looking at my older pieces makes me cringe.) Only some minor edits this time through, as a result.

If she wasn't allowed to shoot anything, she intended to get drunk and work on some personal projects. )

Title: Downtime
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language
Summary: Nora and Danny chat over cheesy movies and Irish coffee.
Notes: DIALOGUE STORY! Oh my God, I love dialogue so much, and I took [livejournal.com profile] randompulp’s fifth challenge as an opportunity to splurge. Also, I unashamedly admit that Nora and Danny are my favorites of the McCormick sibs, and probably some of my favorite characters period. (With Sav, too, of course, someone has to keep Nora from stabbing or shooting everything in sight.)

Feedback is loved and appreciated and like crack for writers. Give me a hit?

Straight on the money, Danny-boy! Drink up! )

Title: Can't Get a Word in Edgewise
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language
Summary: The McCormicks' idea of relaxation involves boozing, taunting, and arguing. Lots and lots of arguing. Well, more like brow-beating.
Notes: Originally my fourth challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] randompulp, in which we’re introduced to all four of the Siblings McCormick; continuation of sorts of the third challenge. I adore this messed up family, I really do.

I can has feedback? Please? Pretty please?

...I think you'd make a good Frank-N-Furter.  )
Title: The Hunters of the Dark
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language, violence
Summary: Killing a High Court Sidhe is just another routine assignment for Nora and Sav.
Notes: Originally the third challenge from [livejournal.com profile] randompulp, now tweaked and edited to my satisfaction. Also the first true Watchers 'verse story I ever wrote, and thus it has a special place in my heart. *smishes it*

Feedback is awesome. I can has? Pretty please?

Honora McCormick and Savannah Bishop had been on duty for over eight hours now with four more to go. )
Title: Singing Steel
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
‘Verse: Schadenfreude
Rating: PG-13
Warning: Language
Summary: Captain Shae Valya does more thinking than is probably good for her. Her ship may or may not agree.
Notes: Completely unbeta’d, mostly written on a whim shortly before midnight and finished up when I was conscious again. First time using present tense in one of my fictional pieces, not sure what I think about the results. Have more ideas for my pirates, though, so expect to see more of Valya and the crew in the future.

Also, feedback. Do want.

Title: And the Dead Do Walk
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG-13, borderline R
Warnings: Language, violence, disturbing imagery
Summary: A disturbance in the North End takes Nora and Sav from their usual beat. It's going to be a most unpleasant evening...
Note: I haven't been up in the North End for a while (I obviously need to rectify this), so I used maps and some images of the neighborhood as references for what I couldn't remember. Also, a huge thank you to my good friend [livejournal.com profile] barcelona_pho for beta'ing this for me. *HUGS*

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Tonight is a bad, bad night. )
Title: Let Every Eye Negotiate for Itself
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dt_maxwell 
'Verse: Watchers
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language
Summary: Sav and Nora get roped into being security at some delicate negotiations. Alcohol is going to be necessary afterward.
Notes: I really wanted to write something for one of my original stories that wasn't for a challenge, just myself. Ironically, what inspired this were a few lines from my last challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] randompulp ... This also hasn't been beta'd, so any and all mistakes are my own. Comments and criticism are very, very welcome.

God, we look like fucking Secret Service agents. )
