Summary: Everyone has a soul animal, but the ability to see them has faded. Harvey possesses not only the ability to see them but also to transform into his own soul animal. Harvey likes to think of himself as the cat that walks by himself, but that changes when he meets Mike Ross, and comes face to face with the rarest soul animal of all…

Author’s Notes: This story was inspired by this picture from Tumblr initially - I saw it and thought it looked like Mike cuddling a cat and then this idea just came to me, and I couldn't resist writing it.  It was one of those lovely stories that completely flowed, and I finished it in one day (with extra editing time a few days later!). The idea took on a life of its own and evolved a long way beyond the picture. Harvey-the-cat doesn't look like this one in my story!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] jaccigirl and [livejournal.com profile] flyingnorth for loving this fic so much and encouraging me to post it, and a big special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] tingreca for beta.

Extract:

If Harvey hadn’t had the Specter gift for seeing into a person’s soul and glimpsing the true self within, then he would have sent Mike Ross packing the minute he showed up for a job interview carrying a bag full of weed. The reason he didn’t was because he looked into Mike’s soul and saw something he’d never seen before - and it shocked him to his core.

He’d heard the legends, of course. His grandmother used to hold him between her forelegs and wash his furry kitten head with little rasps of her iguana tongue when he was only a child. It was she who had showed him how one could love a soul very different to oneself.

When they both changed back into human form, she would hold him close, rock him in her armchair, and tell him stories about the world that hardly anyone else had ever heard.

“People with this kind of soul animal are very rare,” she told him. “I’ve never seen one, but I hear they do exist. There are maybe a handful of them out there, with a new one born only every generation.”

“But I don’t understand.” Harvey turned curious eyes to gaze up at her. “How is it even possible? And how does it work?”

“Like I said, I have no idea. I’ve never met one. Maybe you will, one day, and if you do, it will be a remarkable thing. People with these souls are as special as they are rare. They often achieve great things - and those things can be terrible or beautiful, or sometimes both.”

Harvey had dismissed all this as simply myth and folklore, until he met Mike Ross.

Mike had stumbled into his room, all boyish charm, bad suit, and messy hair, and dropped his suitcase of weed all over the floor, and Harvey had been about kick him out when Mike had suddenly looked at him with those bright blue eyes, and Harvey had seen his soul animal… and stopped dead in astonishment.

This scruffy kid was one of those his grandmother had told him about, one of those with the rare, special souls, with the capacity to do great harm or great good.

For Mike Ross’s soul animal was…

Title: Silent Night

Fandom/s: Multi-fandom crossover fic, featuring many of my favourite fandoms
Pairings: Harvey/Mike from Suits – but the rest are a secret! However, I can say that lots of lovely couples, old and new, make an appearance during the course of the story. If you are desperate to know, you can click on the spoiler button to read the fandoms and pairings, but it’s more fun to just let them surprise you – trust me ;-).


Fandom/s: Suits, The X Files, NCIS, Ricochet, Person of Interest, Sherlock, Rizzoli & Isles, Stargate: Atlantis, James Bond (Skyfall)

Summary: It’s Christmas Eve, and Harvey has a surprise planned for Mike, with a diverting cast of characters making guest appearances. However, Mike has a secret of his own…

Extract:

“Stop it!” Mike said, with a roll of his eyes. “Stop with the whole channelling your inner Bond villain thing, and just tell me what the hell we’re doing tonight.”


“Channelling my inner Bond villain?” Harvey raised an eyebrow.

“You know exactly what I mean! All you need is a fluffy white cat on your knee to complete the image, and Barbara Broccoli would be on the phone in seconds.”

Harvey considered that for a moment. “Hmm, I like that idea, but no. I don't have time for world domination – I'm far too busy dominating you.”

Author’s Notes: This is my Christmas fanfic offering for this year, a slightly bonkers bit of fun, featuring several different fandom pairings. It’s a crossover between my Possession and 24/7 universes, but you don’t need to read either of them to understand this. You just need to know that Harvey and Mike are in a Dom/sub relationship in this universe. None of the events of season two of Suits have happened, and it exists in its own alternate timeline, following on from season one. Not that it matters very much in the context of this story!

A big Christmassy thank you to [livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_star and [livejournal.com profile] tingreca for beta, and to Jacci and Nell for audiencing. Any mistakes are mine.

Dedication: For [livejournal.com profile] mcshepletgirl, who wanted this so much for so long (or at least a version of it!). Also, to everyone who supported me in the writing and publishing of Ricochet – that meant such a lot to me, and I wanted to write this to say a giant thank you to you all!

Author’s Notes: This is my Xanthe Xmas offering for this year☺. This story is set in my Possession story-verse. Some allusions are made to Possession, but you don’t have to read that to understand this.
Many thanks to:
[livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_star for beta and for letting me ‘borrow’ some of the ornaments mentioned in this story from her own tree!
[livejournal.com profile] georgiesmith for US beta.
[livejournal.com profile] flyingnorth, Haggy, N and S for audiencing.

Summary: Can Harvey meet Grammy for the first time, tolerate a tree in his apartment, broach a difficult subject with Mike, and also, somewhere along the way, learn to like Christmas?

“We’ll get you there,” Mike said, in a patronising tone of wise sympathy. “We’ll break you into the joys of Christmas eventually, Harvey Specter Scrooge.”

Last time I posted a story I fell down some steps and broke my leg. I really hope the slash fairy is with me and nothing bad happens this time. It’s been four months since I last posted a story, for obvious reasons, but now that I’m walking and writing again, there is at last new fic. Fingers crossed…and here goes!

Part Two: Counterclaim
Part Three: Merger
Part Four: Reasonable Doubt
Part Five: Due Diligence
