Summary: Lovecraft-inspired 1920s supernatural horror AU.
Notes: So, uh, only six months later than anticipated *shame*. Here's Chapter 6, in which our heroes take a break from mysterious interdimensional energies and creepy cultists to get very, very drunk. Now with 100% more flapper!Laurie!

Perhaps this wasn't such a good idea, Dan thinks, as the swirling mass of bodies parts and closes ranks before his eyes for what feels like the hundredth time.  )

This is the last part I'll be posting for a few weeks, as I'm off to Japan on Saturday! *cue overexcited bouncing* Normal service will, all things being well, be resumed in mid-August.
There are some vague references to homophobia and racism in this chapter -- please be warned.

The nearness of these people, their concern for the welfare of a single child, is beginning to press in upon him. If he stays here much longer, it will surely envelop him too. )

But really, you look like a cover illustration from one of the pulp magazines. The evil sorcerer, plotting his malevolent schemes... )

The scrutiny to which Dan feels himself subjected is cool and measuring, and it makes him want to look childishly at the floor and scuff the soles of his shoes. )

Summary: Lovecraft-inspired 1920s supernatural horror AU.
Notes: This story may contain: Eldritch Horrors, non-Euclidean love triangles, references to real historical events, wholesale abuse of that nebulous collection of names and ideas sometimes referred to as the Cthulhu Mythos, and quite possibly some smut. No Eldritch Horrors in the smut, though, I promise.

Hmm. I haven't written any drabbles in a while. And I'm attempting not to get out of the writing habit while buried under thesis work. So, um, prompt me?

just throw a character or pairing and a prompt at me; you know the sort of thing. (Probably best to stick to Watchmen and Petshop of Horrors at the moment; I'm a bit hazy on most other fandoms these days...)

ETA: So these are ficlets rather than drabbles, because apparently I can't do word-limits these days.

Title: The Cats of New York
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters: Adrian, Adrian's secretary, Dan & Laurie (briefly), lots of cats.
Rating: PG
Summary: Bubastis is avenged, Lovecraft-style.
Notes: Will probably make no sense at all if you're unfamiliar with H. P. Lovecraft's The Cats of Ulthar.
Written for a kinkmeme prompt, though this differs slightly from the original. (I think, like so many of the best unspeakable horrors, they've just eaten his sanity.)

It is said that in Ulthar, which lies beyond the river Skai, no man may kill a cat; and this I can verily believe as I gaze upon him who sitteth purring before the fire. )
