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.


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…

Author’s notes: This is my first ever vampire fic! I intended this to be a one-shot piece when I started it, but I embellished it rather more than I expected and got quite involved in my own mythology. I’m not sure I’ll do any more in this universe, but in case I do, I’m giving the series a name (“Allegiance of Blood”) and titling this as Book One. This story is complete of and by itself though.

Summary: Death is just the beginning…
Extract: Tony saw the hazy figures moving in the distance. They came slowly, gliding soundlessly over the snow, their long teeth gleaming in the moonlight. There were dozens of them.

“Boss?” he whispered, wishing he had his gun. “What the hell do they want?”

“You,” Gibbs said quietly.

Author's Notes: I’m not sure what to say about this one. It’s completely insane, but I hope it gives you a laugh as you rush around trying to get ready for Christmas. I wanted to post something light and fun today. This story is a sequel to Puppy Love – but you don’t have to have read that to get the gist of this (although it probably helps!).

Extract: Tony lay down, put his nose on his front paws, and gazed up at Gibbs mournfully.
Author's Notes: So, I got sidetracked again. This time it's Nikita's fault – she knows why *g*. I should point out that I’m not making the slightest claim to originality here. The central conceit in this story is a tribute to the fabulous Issums Bunny which I read a few months back and loved. I’m also a fan of The Definition of Home by [livejournal.com profile] triskellion. And then there are all those lovely SGA fics where Rodney and/or John get turned into cats… so this is my attempt at the genre *g*.

Title: Hiding in Plain Sight
Author: Xanthe
Fandom: SGA/NCIS crossover
Pairings: Gibbs/DiNozzo, John/Rodney, Carson/Caldwell, Teyla/Ronon, Ziva/McGee, and some other pairings that would spoil the story if I revealed them.
Genre: Slash, het
Category: AU, BDSM-verse, hurt/comfort, romance, BDSM, spanking, action/case, angst
Rating: NC17 for explicit BDSM sex (m/m slash, femslash and het) and spanking. There are also scenes of torture in some parts of the story.

Summary: When a serial killer murders three marines on Atlantis, NCIS are called in to investigate. However, their arrival brings complications for everyone – revealing a lie, a prophecy, a secret and a nemesis.

This story is set in my Coming Home universe, and takes place a few months after the events depicted in General & Dr Sheppard. You don’t have to read them to make sense of this although some events from those fics are referenced in this one, particularly General & Dr Sheppard. Some of the concepts of the universe are also referenced.

This novel-length story is a prequel to General & Dr Sheppard telling the story of how the AU John and Rodney first got together.

Summary: “Colonel John Sheppard knew, from the moment he first met Dr Rodney McKay, that the man would be trouble.”

Author’s Notes and Thank Yous

1. “Coming Home” is set in the same storyverse as ‘General & Dr Sheppard’ (G&DS). You don’t have to have read that in order to read and enjoy this.
2. This story is set entirely in a universe where bisexuality and BDSM sex are the norm. The BDSM depicted in this story is lifestyle BDSM – so it’s more intense than the “silk scarves” variety. It is safe, sane and consensual and the characters enjoy their sexuality. If you are squicked by BDSM practices (such as spanking, bondage, biting, marking, and dominant/submissive power exchange) please don’t read this story.
3. First and foremost this is a story about two people finding each other and learning how to be together. The BDSM is just a backdrop to that story.
4. Obviously as this is an AU, where bisexuality and BDSM are the norm and people are comfortable with that, the characters speak and act a bit differently to how they might speak and act in our universe. It was established in G&DS that the characters in this universe are much more open about their sexuality and comfortable talking about it.
5. Some events from the actual show are depicted in this story but they don’t necessarily happen in the same order, and they certainly don’t happen in quite the same way as they happened on the show. In a few places I have used some actual lines of dialogue from ‘Suspicion’, Hide and Seek’, and ‘38 Minutes’. This was done on purpose to emphasise the fact that this universe sometimes has echoes of our own.
6. Please don’t post to tell me how and why this society won’t work – I'm pretty sure I already know! If you like this kind of thing then it’s an enjoyable fantasy. It's not intended to be a "how to" guide to the functioning of a BDSM society or as to how BDSM should be practised. It's a story about people first and foremost.
7. I’m not postulating that this society is any better or worse than our own – it’s a fantasy construct with its own good and bad points.
8. I was working off my own canon here as some of the events that happen in ‘Coming Home’ are referred to in ‘G&DS’. I tried to make everything fit appropriately, and hope I succeeded. Some things will be picked up in the next story in this series, whenever I get around to writing it *g*. Please note that although John is a General in G&DS, he starts out as a Colonel here.
9. I love getting friendly feedback so please leave some if you enjoy this story!
10. A note about the posting method. I'm posting in installments but the story is finished. I'm posting in installments for various reasons: firstly, I do like to reply to feedback. I think if people have been kind enough to leave it then I like to acknowledge it. So if I posted more than 2 a day I simply wouldn't be able to keep up with the feedback and I want to enjoy the feedback and give people proper responses. Secondly, I asked my flist how they wanted the story to be posted and the consensus was that daily installments were best. People mentioned how they felt G&DS had been a real event, and they'd loved having something new to read each day and being able to chat with other readers about the fic. Of course people who don't like installments can wait until the entire story is posted and then read it all in one go - no problems there! There are 19 installments to this fic.
11. My apologies for the exceedingly long author’s notes! There was a reason why I felt they were necessary with this story.
12. Just to recap - if you dislike BDSM, or the way I write BDSM in particular, and/or you hated ‘G&DS’, then there’s really no reason for you to read ‘Coming Home’. If you loved 'G&DS' and/or really enjoy the way I write, then yay and hoorah and I hope you get a kick out of this one too – it's you guys I'm writing for!

Big Thanks To:
[livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_star for constant encouragement, discussion and support, to say nothing of prompt and helpful beta. I honestly couldn’t have written this without you, and most of the time I was actually writing it *for* you! Thanks so much.
[livejournal.com profile] flyingnorth for enthusiasm and many a long discussion about this universe
[livejournal.com profile] shrewreader for US beta.
Everyone who has been so encouraging (and patient!) about this story and all my flist for being so supportive whenever I mentioned it.
[livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_star again for yet another gorgeous title graphic

Now, on with the story!

Title: General & Dr Sheppard
Author: Xanthe
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing/s: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard. Rodney Sheppard/John Sheppard
Genre: Slash
Category: Romance, BDSM-verse, BDSM, UST, hurt/comfort, angst
Spoilers: Trinity and The Brotherhood.
Summary: An accident with Ancient technology sucks a John and Rodney from an alternate universe onto Atlantis – and they have very different ideas about sex, marriage and relationships.
Rating: NC-17

Many thanks to: Bluespirit for unwavering support, constant enthusiasm, good suggestions and beta help and for just being fabulous. I really can't thank Bluespirit enough. She's been so fabulous and I seriously doubt I'd have continued writing this story without her help and support. Any mistakes are my own. Special thanks also to Flying North for discussions and suggestions. Separate thanks also due to the fantastically talented Bluespirit for the amazingly inspiring title graphic ;-). There's a standalone piece to this title graphic as well which I'll be posting with the next chapter as it goes with it so well.

Warning: BDSM lifestyle themes, graphic, loving BDSM sex, dark, possessive sex, and consensual spanking. Please DO NOT READ if those ideas upset or squick you.

Disclaimer: This is a work of erotic fiction. It is not intended to be a how-to guide for BDSM - there are plenty of sites on the net for that. The alternate universe depicted is intended to be hot and fun - it's not a serious attempt to analyse how such a society would really work.

Extract: New John grinned. "Perhaps we should introduce ourselves. I'm General John Sheppard…"

"General?" John frowned. "Damn." He wasn't sure why that annoyed him, but somehow it did. You can't possibly be competitive with *yourself* he told himself, but the idea that this John outranked him niggled at him.

"Hah – so it seems that the John in their universe has progressed a little further up the career ladder than you, Lieutenant-Colonel," Rodney said, stressing John's title pointedly, in a tone of malicious glee, holding his hands behind his back and rocking back and forth on his heels a little in enjoyment of John's discomfort.

"And this is my husband, Dr Rodney Sheppard," new John added, gesturing towards his Rodney. The look on Atlantis's Rodney's face was so comical that John almost fell about laughing there and then.

Title: Back from the Well
Author: Xanthe
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Beckett/McKay/Sheppard
Genre: Threesome
Categories: hurt/comfort, non-con, romance, angst, drama
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Rape
Spoilers: None
Author's Notes: This is a very long story (over 50,000 words) so I've split it into 6 chapters. As for the "pairing" - because it's such a long story there is a lot of McShep, McBeck and Beck/Shep interaction and emotion so I think lovers of those pairings who aren't necessarily into threesomes would get something from this fic.
Thanks to: Massive thanks to Bluespirit for constant support and encouragement and great comments and for the totally wonderful title graphic. Big thanks to Sergeeva for helpful comments and lovely feedback and to Phoebe for the medical beta :-)

Summary: Atlantis has been invaded and her people sold to work as slaves.

Extract: "I just want it back to how it was before. You, me, John…nothing good like that ever happened to me before and it's all falling apart. I can't look at Radek without remembering the plantation and being thrown down against that bloody well and, and…and you're walking around with the weight of the entire galaxy on your shoulders and John…John isn't John at all! There are some things you can't just tidy up, Carson."
