amatara: (Lost - John Locke)
Posting this a little sooner than I'd planned to, because once the Yuletide archive opens, I don't expect to be doing much else than reading, commenting and squeeing for a couple of days, just like everyone else, I suppose. :)  So please forgive me the hasty editing, and feel free to point out any typos or inconsistencies I might have overlooked due to that.

Another Lost fic, taking place during the same episode (i.e. Cabin Fever) as my previous one, Vigilantes, and in fact set mostly in the same time frame. Except this is Locke's point of view, not Ben's, and the scenes are different. Call it a missing-scene fic for a missing-scene fic, if you will. Still gen, or at least mostly gen-ish, though I'm finding some undertones are slipping in that, depending on your mileage, may be leaning towards UST, and are definitely in the realm of hurt/comfort, be it of the platonic type. *grin* Well, I like UST!

Also - have a very happy Christmas and/or happy holidays, everyone! Wishing you all the very best!

Title: Ad Fundum Calicis
Summary: John Locke has a few things he needs to figure out, and they don't all concern Jacob. Missing scenes from Cabin Fever; companion piece to my earlier fic Vigilantes, which was Ben's POV - this is Locke's.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilery for the events up to Cabin Fever. 

Why should I care when you wouldn’t? )


amatara: (Lost - Ben Linus)

Almost finished a first, very rough draft for my Yuletide assignment (which is proving to be a fun, if challenging, change from what I usually write) so I’m leaving it to stew for a day or two before I start reediting. Meanwhile, I can make good on my promise for more Lost fic!

So, I think I’ve finally reached a point where I can begin to write Locke & Ben in tandem, even if it’s just exploratory snippets rather than anything epic. In my re-watch, I’m almost up to Life and death of Jeremy Bentham, probably tackling it tonight if time allows. Knowing what I know now, that a certain spoilery revelation is true ), watching these last episodes has been leaving me a little downcast. Up until this point I (wrongly) recalled that, after someone does something spoilery ), there’s still a few happy moments for Locke there, one or two days where he’s just the leader of his people and at least has something to carry him though the rest. But, apart from a few stray conversations, there’s actually not much comfort there at all. Oh, John.

Anyway, here be fic to ease the sorrow.

Title: Vigilantes
Summary: If it could only be as simple as Locke, Ben, and Hurley, out camping. Except, after spoilers show up ), nothing's simple anymore. Least of all finding Jacob. Missing snippets from “Cabin Fever”, after Locke suggests to set up camp for the night.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilery for the events up to Cabin Fever, and very vaguely foreshadow-y for some of what follows.
Author’s notes: Thanks to Selena, for suggesting the characters and setting. “Optimum combination of characters”, indeed!  At that point, I had no idea what you were referring to, did I? *grin*

Why is everything penance to you, John? )
