I saw a prompt online saying "Write 100 words of huddling for warmth", and while 'pure' 100-word drabbles are hard for me to do, I decided to join in. Not so much as making a real story, just writing 100 words and then stopping.

Then I sent it to [personal profile] tonko, and she replied back with 100 words of huddling for warmth on her own. Mine had been intended as shippy, (Luffy/Usopp), hers was gen, with Zoro and Chopper and also Sanji to the rescue.

I replied with Ace/Smoker, and she with Paulie/Kaya. And by that point I knew I wanted to post them. Tonko gave her permission, so here they are!

Now - I might just write more on this theme and if so I'll post it as a comment. But I'd also like to say that it's utterly cool if anyone else should want to join in with this fun little exercise in the comments!! I only ask you to please use spoiler warnings if you use new characters or events from the current One Piece manga arc. Other canons are welcome too, of course.

Title: Don't Take The Fall Alone (Part One)
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Zoro/Sanji/Usopp a.k.a the Red Shirt Trio
Spoilers/setting: Set after Thriller Bark and before Sabaody
Summary: After leaving Thriller Bark, Usopp, Sanji and Zoro are all troubled for varied reasons. Usopp proves quite perceptive in some respects, less so in others.

AUTHOR'S NOTES: Written for Martianico within the exchange seeing-color and first posted to the AO3 collection for that exchange. All my thanks to my wonderful beta [personal profile] tonko, who worked hard on this story and who came up with the title, too. But the responsibility for any remaining errors are mine alone. Nitpicks are very welcome, and so is feedback in general!

DISCLAIMER: The characters and situations of One Piece are owned by their creator, Eiichiro Oda. They are used here without permission. This fic may not be used for profit and should not be reposted elsewhere without the writer's approval.
Gah, it's been so long I forgot to make a cut!! )

For [personal profile] tonko. One year late. I AM VERY SORRY ABOUT THAT... but hey, but now it is your birthday again! I hope you will like it. ♥♥♥

Betaed by the terrific [personal profile] thewordweaves. Any remaining errors are my fault and responsibility alone. Nitpicks and other suggestions for improvement are very welcome!

Title: Caught in the Rain
Characters/Pairing: Sanji/Usopp
Rating: PG-13 I KINDA REALLY WANTED IT TO GO HIGHER BUT... in the end this is how it turned out.
Word Count: Around 7,000
Spoilers/setting: This is set post-timeskip but fairly vague. No spoilers beyond Fishman Island. In terms of characterisation, I do take post-timeskip in account to a certain extent, but the bulk of it is based on pre-timeskip, as I feel their characters were more consistent and well-rounded then.
Summary: During an excursion to a new island, the rain forces Usopp and Sanji to stay in place and try to make a fire. Sanji has to deal with feelings he's suppressed for a long time.

[Note: Apologies for culinary implausibility in terms of cooking time for a campfire stew. Perhaps Sanji is just that good.]

I actually wrote a Fullmetal Alchemist one-shot. Constructive criticism is very welcome - nitpicks very much included - as is feedback in general.

Title: If We Can Go On
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist (manga)
Characters: Dr Marcoh, Scar
Rating: PG for canon darkness and such
Word Count: 2,631 at the time of posting
Spoilers/setting: Set somewhere between chapters 77 and 78 of the manga (volume 19), looking ahead to some things to come.
Summary: A gen piece featuring Scar and Marcoh, both wondering in quite different ways about what the next step should be and if they're able and allowed to take it.

Disclaimer: The characters and situations of Fullmetal Alchemist were created and are owned by the glorious Hiromu Arakawa. They are used here without permission. This fic is not to be used for profit in any way and should not be reposted elsewhere without the writer's approval.

what now? )

Happy Birthday, [personal profile] thewordweaves!

I wrote a birthday shortfic for you. I'm afraid it's unedited at this point, and probably a lot longer than it needs to be (especially since very little actually happens). Lightly Sanji/Usopp though probably more gen than not, set some unspecified post-timeskip time. PG for language, I guess.

I don't have a title for it yet either )
printfogey: Ukyo from Ranma 1/2, playing the flute (ukyo_flöjt)
I just posted a two-part fic to Archive of Our Own that was originally done for one of [personal profile] naye's glorious chaos threads. Its new name is A Solid Place To Stand: it's about trusting and being trusted, from Usopp's and Robin's POV (pre-Alabasta and end of Skypiea, respectively). I've polished it up a bit. Concrit very welcome.

Someone prompted me in an anonymous space to write about Garp and young Ace, Luffy or Sabo. I wrote this shortfic from Sabo's POV and then couldn't think of a title. De-anoning and reposting it here now anyway. (The only ones I can think of are things like "Into the Bargain" (sounds not entirely gen, somehow) and "I've Inherited *What*?!") Edit: Okay, got a title now.

Title: Comes With The Territory
Word count: around 850
Spoilers/setting: Set during the time shown in chapter 585
Characters: Sabo, Garp, Ace, Luffy
Rating: G
Concrit: Most welcome

printfogey: (robin intro)
This fic was originally written for [personal profile] prpl_pen on her birthday and posted then but filtered to her alone, since I wanted to tinker with it a bit more. Now it gets (re-)posted in public with just a few polishes.

Nitpicks and other concrit extremely welcome, as is of course any other feedback. It's okay to be harsh!

Title: Take My Hand
Word Count: Around 1, 200
Rating: PG
Pairing: Robin/Usopp
Spoilers/setting: Post-Enies Lobby, pre-Thriller Bark

forget your fears, babe )
printfogey: Nami from One Piece (Nami Seatrain)
It took me a fair bit of time, but finally I'm ready to post this! It's a Nami/Vivi story set towards the end of the Alabasta arc. I like this pairing a lot, but this is the first time I got a real idea for it.

This fic has been betaed by the magnificent [personal profile] tonko, for which I'm very grateful. Any remaining errors are my mistake alone. Suggestions for improvement and other feedback are very much welcome.

Title: Remuneration
Word Count: around 2, 100
Pairing: Nami/Vivi
Rating: PG-13
Setting/spoilers: Albana, post-battle and healing, after Luffy's woken up in the palace but before the great banquet.
Summary: Vivi tailors her approach to her audience.

One drowsy afternoon in the royal palace )

A shamefully late story originally prompted by [personal profile] laconic back in December when I asked for ideas for stories to write in time for the Christmas-New Year's holidays. I have no good excuses - it's not like I can say it was a tough prompt, just asking for Sanji and Usopp interaction post-timeskip. But here it is, at last!

Betaed by the wonderful [personal profile] tonko. Remaining mistakes are my own fault alone. Concrit and other feedback very welcome.

Title: Where We Are Now
Rating: G
Characters: Sanji, Usopp
Pairing: None
Spoilers/setting: Would be firmly set between chapters 654 and 655 if Oda had been considerate enough to indicate a time span of a day or so between them. Instead, let’s just pretend he did. Warning: Contains some of Sanji’s canon transphobia

Disclaimer: The characters and situations of One Piece were created and are owned by Eiichiro Oda. They are used here without permission for entertainment purposes only. This fic is not to be used for profit and should not be reposted elsewhere without its writer's consent.

Unbetaed shortfic for Usopp's birthday: nothing big and definitely not polished, just an off-the-fuff shortfic. Concrit extremely welcome.

Title: Again, Like This, Together I might change this title
Characters/Pairing: very lightly Nami/Usopp
Rating: G
Word Count: 1082
Flavour: fluff
Summary: Nami and Usopp hang out towards the end of the Fishman Island arc

Happy Birthday, Usopp! )
printfogey: (lusopp_celebrating)
This fic is for [personal profile] tonko, who asked for "Zoro + your choice, someone's lost something (important or not) on the ship, and he's looking for it". Sorry this is too late! It turned out rather long as I just had to go and pick the one person more reticent than Zoro himself, for some reason, plus figure out a suitable backstory for the object in question.

The rating is G, characters Zoro and Robin, set before Thriller Bark.

Happy New Year! )

A few days ago [livejournal.com profile] tonko_ni posted a very lovely fic called "Granted" which I think everyone should read if they haven't already. Sooo good (sighs).

Reading it put me in mind of a shortfic of mine from awhile back that takes place the same time, in part. It's not nearly half that good but I thought it was OK, until I looked it up and realised I wasn't happy with the beginning and ending lines at all. Thus I felt prompted to make it at least a little less awkward.

I've been kinda hesitant about what to do with this re-write - maybe I should just quietly edit the old entry, as I've done with other minor tweakings and additions. After all, I haven't changed the dialogue, which is still the central part of this. Only the beginning and ending are changed. (And constructive criticism would still be very appreciated.) But it does feel subtly different to me now, not just somewhat tweaked and polished. So, what the hell, I'm making a new post after all.

Title: Still There
Word count: 332
Spoilers/setting: Set the night right after chapter 439
Rating: G, worksafe
Pairing: Luffy/Usopp

This started out as dialogue only )
printfogey: Picture of Argentinian cartoon character Mafalda (Default)
The third and last of the Luffy/Usopp fics previously seen on [livejournal.com profile] dualcaptains on Luffy's birthday. I suppose now I'll actually have to write some new stuff. Or at least return stuff that's been beta'ed in order to get even more beta. (is greedy);D
Constructive criticism is very much welcome here as with other stuff, btw.

Title: Faith
Word Count: 760
Rating: PG, I guess?
Pairing: Luffy/Usopp
Genre: I suppose I’ll have to go with ‘fluff’ for this one
Setting: Any time post-EL
Summary: Always knew it. )
printfogey: Picture of Argentinian cartoon character Mafalda (Default)
Another of the Luffy/Usopp fics previously posted to [livejournal.com profile] dualcaptains
This one’s called The Title, which looks pretty stupid but seems to fit. It’s from Luffy’s POV - hopefully not terribly OOC.

Word Count: 578
Rating: G
Mood: Introspective
Setting/spoilers: Any time after Enies Lobby.
Summary: Luffy and what he can’t mean, and therefore can’t say )
printfogey: Picture of Argentinian cartoon character Mafalda (Default)
Am reposting one of three fics that was previously done for [livejournal.com profile] dualcaptains (the Luffy/Usopp comm) on Luffy's birthday on May 5th (as part of a celebration suggested/organised by[livejournal.com profile] scribe_protra). If you've read it there already, there's nothing new except perhaps some minor correcting/polishing.

Title: Tangible
Word Count: 1013 or thereabouts
Rating: G or a mild PG
Pairing: Luffy/Usopp, or at least Usopp->Luffy
Setting: After page 1 and some time before page 10 of manga chapter 492; I'm obviously just guessing wildly about the time interval
Summary: Just because it's close enough to touch doesn't mean you shouldn't leave it alone...Or does it?

Might fit in with canon. Does have cannons. )
printfogey: Picture of Argentinian cartoon character Mafalda (Default)
I’ve long tried to write something about the Luffy-Usopp fight in Water 7 from Luffy’s point of view and have found it rather hard to do. If Luffy’s thought processes can be tricky enough at normal times, they are even more so when it comes to this – I really don’t find it easy to guess at his state of mind back then. Moreover, it feels extra important to get right.

I’m still not too sure how close I’ve gotten this time, but I’ve decided to post it even so. At least I think it’s better than my earlier draft attempts. Constructive criticism on this would be VERY welcome, believe you me.


Title: Carry That Weight
Word Count: 459
Spoilers/setting: After chapter 333 through the first pages of chapter 334 (stopping right before Nami bursts out the news about the assassin attempt on Iceburg)
Flavour: Luffy angst of the Usoppian variety. (Sorry!)
Rating: G, worksafe.

Shape up and be stronger )

Edit: Changed the title.
Edit 2: Rewrote some of it.
