Rumpled (Jubilee/Paige) Chance encounters can prompt different interpretations. Set in the world of Kaylee's Mooks, this story has a charm that is positively "Mooky."

Ivory Edge (Sean/Emma) It falls to Emma to inform Sean of Moira's passing. An excellent look at the woman known as the White Queen.

Nightly (Alfred) We often fail to realize the effect our actions have on those we love. Even if you know nothing about Batman - Read This Story. I promise you won't regret it.
Fightin' Irish (Draco) Donal Finnegan cannot understand why a certain costumed hero won't leave him alone. Kaylee's Draco is a fascinating adaptation of Jason Todd. In fact, her work with this character is so good, that it has inspired quite a few other authors to try their hand at telling his story. You can find out more about this incarnation of Jason Todd at Crime Alley and the Dracoverse.
The Kinda Mooks Series:
A Different Kinda Craving (Bobby/Remy) Imagine the nervousness of a new relationship. Now imagine Robert Drake in a new relationship. Kaylee calls them "the mooks." Which they are - but they are also great fun to read. :) Warning: m/m relationship (nothing explicit)- if this offends you, go elsewhere.
A Special Kinda Savoring (Bobby/Remy) The follow-up to A Different Kinda Craving . Afraid of messing anything up, Bobby tries very hard to make sure he gets it all - just right.

Kaylee has outdone herself with this one! Warning: m/m relationship (nothing too terribly explicit)- if this offends you, go elsewhere.
The Death of Xavier Trilogy:
Tombstone (Magnus) A visit at an old friend's grave. Powerful. Poignant. Unbelievably Good.
Til Christmas (Xavier) A chronicle of Xavier's last days. Although this is technically the prequel to Tombstone , it is meant to be read AFTER that story. Trust me. The effect of these stories is most heart-wrenching if you read them in the proper order.
To Guard A Gate (Magnus) How does the death of Charles Xavier affect his greatest friend and adversary? The chronological sequel to Tombstone .

Dickensian Moments (Authority) It's Christmas, and the Midnighter and Apollo find themselves reflecting on the changes in their lives over the course of the previous year. Stories like this one are the reason I started reading the Authority. Part of the 1999 Holiday Fanfic Project! For more Authority fan-fiction check out Allegiance.

Heroics (Scott) Sometimes it is the little things that define a hero. A lighthearted piece that will make you smile.
Open Fires (Blaquesmith, Aliya) Set in the early days of the Clan Chosen, Blaquesmith returns with a new weapon for their battle against Apocalypse. This story is rich in detail and features beautifully realized characters. Highly recommended.
