Post-EW, fusion with the Iskryne series, written for the Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia mini-challenge. Duo-centric, eventual Duo/Heero. Psychic packbonding, consent issues.

Duo doesn’t want to join the Preventers, thankyouverymuch. Preserving the peace is all well and good but he likes answering to no one but himself, and like hell he wants to buddy up to people he and Killer used to stand against, back during the war.

Only the Preventers have a pack, and his brother-wolf doesn’t, never has, deserves to, and maybe a junkyard dog isn’t all a warrior wolf should be.

--

Duo swore Heero would have kept him awake less if he'd been tossing and turning.

Mary had retired to her little wolf cave on the ground floor of the Yuy bunk bed a while ago, and was dead asleep as far as Duo could tell. Meanwhile, her person was lying absolutely still one level up, stretched out on his back, a hand tucked under his pillow for the hidden gun. Staring at the ceiling.

Okay, not really, his eyes were closed. Might as well have been staring, though. Duo didn't know if it was because almost everyone else was asleep and therefore quiet, but...

The awareness of too many breaths in the room he felt was a little too sharp to be his. He'd been here for almost four weeks now, after all, and it wasn't like he'd never slept in dorms before, doing his training on cramped, overcrowded Sweeper ship after Sweeper ship. Half the time he had his choice of hammock or Killer's flank to sleep on, and the hammocks vibrated every time someone opened a door or walked by...

Sigh.

FINALLY AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. this chapter was such a GIGANTIC PAIN to write and I don't get why.

8k long. Contains some public embarrassment, so if that bothers you here's your heads-up.

Person/wolf pairs are Duo (motor about to overload)/Killer (rusting car carcass on hot pavement), Trowa/Coyote, Wufei/Glenfiddich (stag and snow), and Heero (cordite and nitroglycerin and blood)/Mary(summer wind through the city).

Relevant OCs: Wangai/Shark (fish blood and storm at sea) and Rosca/Folha (lathering horse in harness)

--

"Can't go -- haring off -- Maxwell -- he says," Duo grunted, "That asshole -- then he goes--"

Bite him, Killer agreed as he attacked an obstacle with vengeful enthusiasm.

"Chang -- fucking -- hate you!"

The wolfless trainees he was passing on the track stared at him. Who cared! Duo sped up some more. He wished Wufei and Glen were in range to hear him rant at them -- or listening, either or, he couldn't tell if they were close or not. Trowa and Coyote were definitely close enough, and radiating smug and nothing else.

"That's your twelfth lap, Maxwell!" Wangai threw as he passed her again. Exasperation and worry flicked through from her (ten laps a day two too many/going too fast angry), almost fainter than Coyote even though he and Trowa were probably all the way across the Preventers compound.

"I don't care!" he yelled back. He should probably tone down the histrionics some, but --

Killer passed Shark with barely a glance. He was running to find summer-wind-in-the-city and who cared about storm at sea and fish blood, she was close close waiting and if they ran really fast they could maybe go find her??

Duo didn't have the heart to explain to him that no matter how fast they ran they still wouldn't get any free time to go find Mary! before noon at best.

It did spend some superfluous adrenaline, though. Duo couldn't help it, it was pavlovian at this point. Whenever Heero appeared in his life, military coups and prison breaks followed, it was just the way it was. He could tell this time was different -- why was Heero coming in person to the Preventers, he was a solo agent down to the bone, the quintessential lone wolf --

Not alone? Got summer-wind-in-the-city.

So I guess they're a two-wolf pack then. Hah.

500 words.

In a world where Heero Yuy never messes up placing his bomb Mary's mother and littermates never die burned and crushed underneath a fallen building, and neither do her mother's bond-brother or his girlchild. Mary grows up, faster than her human sibling. It is fun, playing with her, but the little girl is a littermate to protect, Mother said, she is not... Mary isn't sure what she is not.

I'mma cut it in half for AO3 I think cause it's over 27 pages long in Word, but since it's all written out, you guys get everything today. I'm kind and loving that way.

There's a chatlog at the start, and i THINK you can skip it if you hate reading homestuck-style chatlogs (mea culpa they're just so funny to write) but it does give some mood/background. Also, Hilde is funny and needs more screentime ok. ;^;

Hasn't been thoroughly betaread yet so if you catch something I'll be glad to hear it, but don't feel like you have to bother either, I'll probably manage to sit on one of my friends and make them beta it for me eventually.

Previous part. Hit the Wolfbrothers tag for the start.

Duo and Killer meet part of the preventers pack. Shitton of OCs in here. I hope they're not too confusing.

------------------

Two hours later Duo was in possession of a clean, if still somewhat damp brother (Killer hated the hairdryer), a clean if still really damp ass-length braid (of course Killer had shared the joys of showering, and once he was done getting washed and more dry than not he wanted to be gone from that devil place straight away,) drenched civilian clothes in a plastic bag, two clean and pressed uniforms (one in a clothes bag, one on himself -- quartermaster had insisted; the jacket was okay and he was used to high shirt collars, but dear lord did he hate the way the slacks pulled too tight across his ass like they'd split if he had to kick someone in the face) and a stack of papers to fill to complete Killer's registration.

"... 'che," he grumbled to himself as he trudged after his wolf back to the dormitory. Killer gave a perfunctory flick of his ear to pretend he was listening, nose to the ground tracking some fascinating bit of ancient history. "I don't get how 'I'm from L2' explains why all my papers are either fake or three year old at best and that's fine, but when it's about you, it's all le gasp what do you mean you don't even know his dam's name how is that even possible you must be mistaken."

Okay I know the previous post was chapter 1 scene 1 but I decided actually there were two scenes in it and it could stand as a chapter. >_>

I thought I had posted this scene at some point since it's been written for a while, but I can't find it. So here it is? (again?? idk.) Am now prodding at the following scene. Plz motivate me, I'm being swallowed alive by Homestuck and as much fun as it is, that sort of selfish behavior from one's fandoms is just not on. >:(

This one's roughly 1 600 words long.

Duo doesn't want to join the Preventers, thankyouverymuch. Preserving the peace is all well and good but he likes answering to no one but himself, and like hell he wants to buddy up to people he and Killer used to stand against, back during the war.

Huh. Wolf cave, huh? )
askerian: Serious Karkat in a red long-sleeved shirt (Default)
Damn it, OCs, stop being ethical AND smart, you're figuring things out way too early. *EDIT EDIT* auuugh.

Also, introducing five new people in one scene might be a bit much. :X I'll see if I can cut one off, but I don't see which one... :(


Seeing the two wolves side by side it was even more obvious Chiquito was still very young; he was fuzzy all over and round-bodied and his paws were huge compared to his legs. He could get under Killer's barrel without needing to hunker down more than a couple of inches. Killer jerked when he did it and sidestepped, but it seemed more reflexive unease and confusion than true, aggression-edged wariness.

After that of course it was butt-sniffing time. Urk. "Thanks for sharing, buddy."

Shh quiet. Important smells!

"Yeah, I'd say. So, the pup likes burritos?"

Makisig gave a guilty snicker. "Probably shouldn't let him have them, but oh, the soulful eyes."

Last month I was writing SO MUCH!!

We're 11 days into a new months and I've written, let me check... oh huh okay 5 000 words, that's not too bad, man it's crazy how my self-perception tends to only base itself on the last two days. If I haven't written in two days then I haven't written in AGES and I am FAILING HOMG but no pressure, self.

But still, hn.

One of them is the beginning of Jade's scene in Garden, yay, the other one is a brand new, silly sequel to the john/jade(/karkat) chatlog fic. It's another chatlog! :O This time Karkat really is in it.

Neither of them, you'll be surprised to learn, is Teamwork. :O

I have the file open right now. I'm staring at it. Sakura refuses to do anything interesting. When I try to make her go smart she goes "this is so dry and emotionless" and when I try to make her emotion-thinking she goes "why am I regressing to my Teamwork 1 self here" and, I don't know, mostly I keep going "aaaaa will i manage to write the naruto/sasuke interaction right i should have written it back when I ahd the scene in mind and it was still ALIVE aaaaaaaaaaa" and it's distracting me a lot from Sakura's scene, where the only hook is whether she'll win her match or not.

I'm hesitant to give myself an ultimatum à la "write 500 words of teamwork a day!!!!!" because sometimes that works and sometimes that backfires horribly, but at this point it seems obvious I'm not going to be brushed by the magnificent plumage of Divine Inspiration anytime soon and maybe I should just slog through it and just be DONE WITH IT and be able to get to the NEXT PARTS AAAA.


I've also been flopping around a lot wanting to write GW bondwolves, only I've been wanting to write HEERO and Mary, not Duo and Killer. Only the way the fic keeps lengthening on me there's still a whole two chapters at least before Heero pops up. Goddamn it. But at least I still feel like I'm progressing some on that fic, because even if I'm not writing I'm still watching the episodes while biking away, and nowaways what I do when I get off is write down how the plot diverged where and why, and where the wolves were at the time. XD

For example when Trowa was lost in space with amnesia he comes down to Earth with Quatre and Heero and Mary, and when Heero and Mary peel off he stays with Quatre (no space for two wolves in the compartment underneath the pilot's chair, no matter that one of them is a teenage bitch-puppy that's still half grown up.) Meanwhile amnesiac!Trowa is wondering what is missing so horribly, even though the obvious answer should be YOUR MEMORIES DICKFACE it never seems like that's quite it. I think when he sees Duo in the audience with Killer (there is no making a bondwolf lie down between the rows of seats so he'd be highly visible) he'd probably fall right off whatever he was balancing on at the time with the headache of the century, and then Catherine would *really* kill Duo. XD

Seriously with all the many times the boys were taken prisoners and their wolves taken hostage to ensure coperation and all the accidental separations (read: selfdestructs XD) it's a real game of musical chairs. I don't think any of the wolves has NOT been separated from his human for unreasonable lengths of time and a lot of incertitude re: how the fuck do we find each other again, which is not really how these things should go but then again gundam pilots don't really do things by the book, like, ever, anyway. Wait, Glen hasn't been separated from his master yet, but I don't think it helps seeing that Treize is going to kick the bucket on him at some point and is already loudly and repeatedly thinking about it and asking random pilots to please kill him. XD;



re: battlefield terra, I have a collection of ideas of what happens in this chapter and am now trying to tie them in a way that does not scream HOMG FILLER EPISODE. Actually it really shouldn't be fillery at ALL, I'm just not seeing it clearly enough to write. Hrrn. Must brainstorm more.

*nerd*

Askerian: i have the best name ever for a bondwolf and i won't be able to really use it. :-(
Askerian: when quatre and heero go back to Earth
Askerian: they are found by this military guy, Count Townsend, and his troop. they don't like OZ and they're treating the boys well but they're gonna have to give in and hand them over eventually (it's the scene on the beach where heero and quatre play with dogs. btw.) (blahblah they escape from his, uh, high-security cloth tent and lack of guards, how could that happen. :O)
Askerian: so then i was looking for the real person that this Count Townsend was obv. descended from, then i was like shit there's too many of the guys it must be a generic nobility/martial name for japanese people idk
Askerian: then i was like "but they come from ireland so i could call his wolf eire. :D "
Askerian: but then i was like "this would make her a female and Mary would be all grr at her. hmm."
Askerian: and then i was like "IT COULD BE AN OLD GRIZZLED MALE WITH HIS TAIL CUT OFF AND HE WOULD BE CALLED MANX."
Askerian: i want a wolf named manx now T__T
Askerian: .__.
Askerian: but if manx isn't attached to Townsend it's not as fun a name!!!
Askerian: or maybe uh idk they meet again at some point. :-\
Askerian: manx would be SUPER OLD. hmmm.
Askerian: hmmm
Askerian: HMMMMMM
Askerian: halps i nerded and can't get up

Yeah, I'm posting this chapter in pieces, because I'm going to have to scrape and restart the next scene for the SECOND time and I already hated it the first and I need me some motivation.

It's still 4 200 words long, mind. Whee for superlong chapters.

Fandom: Gundam Wing
Pairing: Duo Maxwell/Heero Yuy
Characters: Duo Maxwell, Wufei Chang, Lady Une
Summary: Duo doesn't want to join the Preventers, thankyouverymuch. Preserving the peace is all well and good but he likes answering to no one but himself, and like hell he wants to buddy up to people he and Killer used to stand against, back during the war.

Only the Preventers have a pack, and his brother-wolf doesn't, never has, deserves to, and maybe a junkyard dog isn't all a warrior wolf should be.

(Fusion of sorts with the Iskryne/A Companion to Wolves series, though mostly I only use the huge, sentient, telepathic wolves. Because It's Fun Okay.)

Prologue

Chapter 1, part 1 )
askerian: (Sasuke_Oh Fuck)
Look at me spamming people with random babble. You guys know why? NO ONE IS ONLINE TO SIT ON ME AND MAKE ME WRITE IS WHY.

° One week before the end of the month and I still haven't written any teamwork. One of these days (NOT TODAY) I'mma just gonna make a LJ post and... idk, every time someone comments I have to post them what I wrote since the last comment, or something. Maybe that'll motivate me (or maybe i'll be too busy answering comments to actually write XD)

° On the other hand today I wrote a bit of Lone Wolf and Pilot, the GW thing with bonded telepathic wolves, which is boring as fuck and mostly setup for the INCOMING CLUSTERFUCK bwahaha go killer go, but still, I have two complete scenes before that and maybe I could post them here or something. I remember when I used to spam you guys with all my scenes fresh from my bleeding and battered fingers. Maybe I should get back to that. >__>

° I also worked a lot on an illustration for the fic! I... pretty much traced an official pic of heero and duo and then added wolves in it. *cackles* I'm really not taking it as ~art~, it's more like an edit, but wow my fingers. Also I wish I knew how to make fake screencaps because it'd look really fun if I could copy the anime style, but every time I've tried to learn I was just... yawn lasso tool oh hey a butterfly, and the skill stayed unlearned.

I also started a pic with Heero and Duo and their merlin and crow daemons for that OTHER alternate universe with GW people having speshul soul pets. Self, what are you trying to tell me here... oh right! i should totes be illustrating the Gundams as Dragons verse. Yup, that must be it. Augh, illustration ADD. I think I just want Gboys and ANIMALS. >_>;

° In Homestuck news I'm a bit scared of the popularity of that Big Robots AU to be honest. XD; I was only planning to do their meeting at first, a sort of This One Gundam Episode Where Two Enemies Are Stuck On An Island At Night trope, and then the bunnies wanted to know what next and now, crap, I have to figure out more badass stuff to shove in that plot (AN ACTUAL STRUCTURED PLOT WOULD ALSO BE NICE), but so far I mostly have random telepathic shenanigans and Gamzee being terrifying and also John and Karkay using contrived nanomachines-related excuses to suck face. Which is always fun, I admit, but hmm. And now a ton of people like it, and they're all "i can't wait to see where you're going!!!" and uh okay, self, it's cool, most of your fics are done with that seat of the pants approach to storytelling ANYWAY! *makes self breathe*

° Re: Back to the Garden, so far I have two scenes. One of them is ten FIFTEEN pages of Karkat Is Nosy And A Mother Hen And Pale For Everyone Ever, and the other one is about eight of Gamzee Is So In Pity With Tav And Karkat Awwsocute And Also A Really Creepy Motherfucker. No trace of action or politics or adventures, apart from some silly forest wanderings.

So i'm like "That's a lot of pages! I should post them as a preview!" and then I'm like "that's a lot of pages where NOTHING HAPPENS BUT LOTS OF TALK" and the next scenes are going to be actionny and reveal more plot stuff so I'm thinking if I want the chapter to feel balanced I should just wait to have the complete thing or else chapter 2A will feel REALLY slowboring...?????

but aaaaaaaaaaawannapostsomething. ;^;

° wanna post somethiing

° but nothing is complete why

° because i haven't completed anything is why aaaaa

° aaaAAaAAAAAAAaaaaa

° and in conclusion, aaaaaaaa.

oh man, so much worldbuilding little details for a world that has had warriors and wolf-bonds since before JC.

Would the Preventers have separate rooms for on-base lodgings or a single dormitory, since wolf packs would bond better if they're allowed to all sleep in a pile? Would that cause too many squabbles for the best position? Would they not care so much about the pack as a whole being linked extra-closely since they're almost never going to all work on the same single mission anyway but be broken up into smaller teams or even simple two-humans partnerships where one of the guys might not even have a wolf, and so training together and being around each other during a work day should be sufficient to create a pack identity? gnahh. Can't reason it out.

I have other issues but they're spoilerific as heck. Hrrrn.

In case you missed it I wrote a Heero-centric prequel to this for my meme, it's been slightly edited (as in about three words) and can be found here: Cordite and Nitroglycerin and Blood.

Post-EW, Duo-centric, eventual 2x1.

Duo doesn't want to join the Preventers, thankyouverymuch. Preserving the peace is all well and good but he likes answering to no one but himself, and like hell he wants to buddy up to people he and Killer used to stand against, back during the war.

It's not like I have enough fics to write already, after all. :D

As always!
-You take a fic or ficlet or multipart I've written, and choose whether you want a prequel or a sequel, and/or which character you want to concentrate on (not necessary but always appreciated) and/or a timeframe (i might tell you nothing interesting happens at that point, alas) and/or some aspect of the plot you were curious about idk etc.
-They shall be snippets or ficlets or otherwise roughly comment-sized, which means there's an even chance I'll come out of this post with yet another sprawling, all-devouring 'verse on my hands.
-I make no promise to actually write your prompt. I'll give it a fair try, is all I can offer.
-You can post up to five prompts. I might write one, I might write all five, I might write none.

Not as always!
This time on top of prequels and sequels you're also free to choose a scene and ask for a different POV on it in the same timeframe, or ask what Other Character was doing at the time. (I reserve the right to reject the prompt if the answer is "nothing that interesting.")

Eligible fics:
Just about any of them, teamworkverse, restoreverse, my ofics, even Garou. Random drabbles, fics that already have a sequel, weird crossovers, blahblahblah.

Yes, that means Crossed Wires too.

My ffnet page
My homepage
The archive for all those ficlet that already have a sequel or three. (note, if the ficlet isn't in there that doesn't mean it's not eligible. I'll add it later, no prob.)

Non-eligible:
-Locker Room Therapy (got a few in progress already!)
-Tripletsverse (Naruto/Naruko/Kyuubi) in general (you can ask about a specific fic in the series but you can't just say "tripletsverse! Dude, it spans months and I haven't yet decided some things, I don't think it'll ever officially have an end.)
-Detective Conan/Magic Kaito fics, sorry Jo. .__.
-Duo in Firefly. I have no clue on earth what to do with that one, sorry.
You can try for Heero in SGA but the prompt will have to be awesome, because the inspiration for this one doesn't fly high. Sorry.



Fics so far! :D

A white wolf, a pink heart, and the text: Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia - A Multi-Fandom Mini-Fest, February Thirteenth through Fifteenth

So I was reading this AWESOME crossover between Generation Kill (which I have not watched) and A Companion to Wolves, which is a nordic fantasy AU that is... also kind of Pern but with huge wolves instead of dragons. (The fic is basically about a company of Marines who each have their own wolves; I read it almost like an ofic and it pinged all my buttons like crazy anyway.) So there I was, trying to tell myself I was not allowed to come up with ANOTHER gundam wing AU where the boys have speshul animals, I have the Gundams As Dragons 'verse and the Daemon AU already seriously overkill or what.

But. Wolves! Psychic imprinting! Pack bonding! WOLVES!

But no bad Asuka, too many fics about psychic pack bonding or wolves or both already.

BUT THEN SUDDENLY A 'FEST.

It's almost like an excuse. @__@

So um I still don't know if I'll participate in that contest thinger, but I already have the wolves's description and scent names and how they met their boys all mapped out want to keep track of it and possibly have more people join up to get more delicious fic to read. So. Yeah.


edit for silliness:
Askerian: Duo's wolf is named Killer.
Askerian: oh, Duo.
Askerian: he named him when he was eight and the wolf was a puppy and he had no idea how big they got okay XD he thought it was funny!
Askerian: suddenly, wolf that comes up to his chest.
Askerian: less ironic.
Saro Lynne: ...PFFFFFF
Askerian: >:D
Askerian: now when he calls to him in the street people hide their children.
Askerian: duo: *... is an asshole, so is still amused*
