Pairing/Characters: Fraser/RayK
Warnings: PG-13
Author's Notes: Happy (belated) Chanukah!  I tried to hit as many of your prompts as possible; all I can say is thank you for making them fun!  I think the only thing lacking is porn, and I do apologize for that.  It just didn't seem to go with the rest of the story... 

Deepest gratitude to my betas, who told me that with a little extra work, this fic could be awesome.  Here's hoping!

Title: Just The Way I Am
For: Andeincascade
Pairing/Characters: Vecchio(/Fraser)
Warnings: Only what's already canon.
Author's Notes: Sweetness, you asked for a Ray/Ray, or a Fraser/Vecchio/Kowalski. As you fortunately also requested a Vecchio backstory as your third choice, I now present a brief history of Franni--
Just kidding.
I would like to thank my betas, who not only know who they are, but also did not pelt me with rotten items of fruit.

P.S.: You may note that the tag reads 'F/K/V', but the story contains, well... It seems to contain otherwise. I assure you that this is not the true case; this part of the story simply ends where it ends because that's where it wanted to end.

(Why no, I'm not cheating with that. What a horrible thing to suggest!)

Title: First Time For Everything

Warnings: NC-17, most certainly
Vidder's/Author's/Artist's Notes: I want to thank Mergatrude for being my beta reader. The title comes from the song of the same name by Chris Young, as do certain allusions in the story, though I don't really classify this as songfic. Prudence, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did writing it.

Title: Crazy Eights
For: wihluta
Pairing/Characters: F/K/V of the BFF variety
Warnings: none needed
Vidder's/Author's/Artist's Notes:
Some weird world where they are all boys (and pup) together, or perhaps time travel, or de-aging, or.. or.. or...

Wihluta likes F/K/V and kidfic.. I am hoping this qualifies! It is black pens (fineliner, sharpie and brush pen) on bristol board, and accented with markers and touched up on the computer.

The Hypotenuse of a Right Triangle by Sage

| | Comments (12) | TrackBacks (0)
Title:  The Hypotenuse of a Right Triangle
Recipient: ExeterLinden
Characters: Stella, RayK, RayV, Fraser + the usual supporting cast
Warnings: none
Notes 1:  Consider this an Alternate Reality, where Stella became a detective and RayK became an attorney.  The other major change is I've inverted the order of "Juliet is Bleeding" and "Victoria's Secret" in this 'verse's chronology.
Notes 2:  Linden requested something that looked at gender and RayK and Stella, possibly doing a gender flip. I thought there might be something interesting to flipping their professions instead.  I hope this touched on at least a little of what you wanted to see! :)
Acknowledgments: Endless thanks to china_shop for the beta.  &hearts;
"Miss--I mean Detective--Kowalski!  The thief called!"

This is a sequel to, although it makes sense without having read that...


Title: Phenomenal Cosmic Powers (itty bitty living space)
Pairing/Characters: Vecchio/Kowalski, Fraser
Vidder's/Author's/Artist's Notes:

Title: loquacious (loh-KWEY-shuhs)
For: Ariastar
Pairing/Characters: Fraser/Kowalski
Warnings: Violence (non-graphic death occurring off-page), bad language
Author's Notes: Many thanks to my awesome horde of talented betas, plus my flist for the <3 and *\o/*. Many, many thanks to my horde of betas. Waltzforanight was the first to see this, in its original F/K/V form, which wasn't working for me. J_S_Cavalcante helped me tear this story down and rebuild it as a more solid F/K story, helping me in ways that I can't even describe. She also helped reassure me that it didn't suck, which is apparently part of the job description. All while juggling her own myriad commitments, all on a deadline. Were_duck, Sionnain and Julia_here all provided different viewpoints as well as insightful and really helpful comments and advice. It was cute to watch Sionn and Were_duck bond over the GoogleDoc of my story. As always, this story is only as good as it is because of my betas and any remaining mistakes are mine. Last but not least, many thanks to RL friend P, who helped with GTO tune-up tips (which unfortunately got left on the editing room floor) and for a pleasant discussion on the physics of defenestration.

Migration Patterns by Gloriana

Title: Migration Patterns
For: Ifreet
Pairing/Characters: F/K/V
Warnings: none
Vidder's/Author's/Artist's Notes:
This was not the story I intended to write; but it is a story I intended to write over a year ago, and have had in the gestation ever since. (Someone here might recognise the seven prompts which inspired it.) Ifreet, thank you for making me put it down on paper at last. Many thanks to my beta, who isn't even in the fandom, did me the greatest of services at the latest of hours, and is not to be blamed for anything.

Hirsute Angry Thief by bluebrocade

Title: Hirsute Angry Thief
Kowalski, Fraser, et. al. (gen)
Warnings: none
Wordcount: 8,345
Author's Notes: Happy Holidays!  This is my attempt at an ensemble gen casefic with humor. I hope it pleases.
Title:   Freaks & Geeks (To Say Nothing of the Goat)
For:    isiscaughey
Pairing/Characters:   Fraser/Kowalski; Dief, Turtle, Welsh
Warnings:   Angst & porn (of the NC-17 variety).  Here there be clowns.

Author's Notes:
For Isis, who wanted Fraser/RayK post-COTW casefic set in Chicago, with Welsh and Dief and Turtle.  I think the only thing I didn't quite manage was Fraser h/c, unless you count emotional pain.  *g*  Cheer up, emo Fraser!  You'll get your happy ending.  :)  Oh, and I took artistic liberties with real-life locations... you'll know it when you read it.  Happy holidays from your Seekrit Santa!  \o/

The part always has a tendency to reunite with its whole, in order to escape from its imperfection.

Title: Neither Expose Nor Extinguish
For: HYPERfocused
Pairing/Characters: Fraser/Kowalski, Stella Bonasera (CSI:NY) -- all you need to know about CSI:NY is that Melina Kanakaredes, who played Victoria on DS, plays Stella Bonasera on CSI:NY.
Warnings: NC-17
Vidder's/Author's/Artist's Notes:  As this was a rather last-minute pinch hit, I owe BIG HUGE THANK YOUs to my fabulous and amazing betas. I am utterly indebted to the helpful and supportive Lucifuge-5, who held my hand from beginning to end, and also to lovely china_shop and wonderful malnpudl who responded to an eleventh hour request for extra pairs of eyes. Their combined feedback vastly improved this pinch-hit from a barely-begun WIP into what it is now. It literally would not exist without their help. All remaining mistakes are mine alone.
