The sun was rising over the walls around the city, lighting up the rooftops and making all the tiled ones shine like everything was on fire. It was just another beautiful sight that Sophie had never noticed before. She'd seen so many sunrises and sunsets from inside the city walls, but she'd never really considered how lovely it was.

It took sitting alone in the prison tower, waiting for her sentence to be handed down, for her to really appreciate it. )

This is my first attempt at anything remotely steampunk/sweepingly world building.

Stripped of name and rank, the former Queen Sophie takes up with a band of brigands and miscreant thieves aboard an airship, The Tumbler's Fall. Captained by a strange young girl and crewed by the oddest assortment of people Sophie could imagine, the plan is to ship out for lands unknown and treasures undreamed of. Things aboard The Tumbler's Fall don't always go according to plan, it turns out...

For as long as Alec could remember the first day of school was one he looked forward to for weeks. New shoes, new pencils, new friends to make, and Nana saying how proud she was of him.

This year was different though. He couldn't feel less excited if he tried. The first day of college was three weeks away and his stomach was a knot of dread. )

Author's Notes: Written for [community profile] polybigbang. Many thanks to my last minute betas, [personal profile] valtyr and [personal profile] cantarina. This story has been such a long time coming and I'm glad it's done, but more importantly, I'm glad I got to write it. Thank you to everyone who helped me with this and everyone who listened to me complain about it :D ilu, Chat, and ilu, whole entire internet.

And very of course, [personal profile] waterofthemoon. You are amazing and talented and I am so, so thankful for you.

On the eve of her first international tour, worldwide pop superstar Parker, is plagued by fear, doubt, and regret over the choices she's made. Her pre-fame best friend (Eliot) has suddenly reappeared in her life, the new DJ (Alec) is a touch too familiar for comfort, and maybe Parker's libido is out of control.

They're all in for a very interesting tour.

The stadium at Mexico City was bigger than ninety percent of the venues Parker had played in her life. When they showed up just in time to start the first sound check, Parker nearly turned around and ran out again. Eliot caught her by the elbow and pulled her back.

"Relax, Parker, it's just a concert. You've done this a thousand times before."

She scowled. "Playing to a bunch of drunks in the back of your bar doesn't really count."

"Well, you've done a lot more than just that. But why is it so different anyway? I mean, besides the fact that you have a boat made of glitter in your hair now, this is basically the same. Just a little bigger."

She touched her hairboat self consciously. )

Part Three

sunspot: bright pink text on black "in lust we trust" (in lust we trust)

Things were better after that. Parker was pretty sure it was better, anyway. She was spending time with Eliot and it wasn't weird. It was like old times. Almost constant laughter and hijinks and easy, comfortable companionship.

It helped that Spain was the most beautiful place Parker had ever seen. She was absolutely going to come back when she had more time to spend, but as it was, she had to settle for filling disposable cameras with photo after photo. Nate kept trying to buy her a digital camera, but she liked it impermanence behind a disposable. She wanted to take the colours and feelings of the city and keep them inside her forever, memories remaining long after the place and the camera were gone.

After the afternoon concert in Barcelona, she tricked Nate into distracting the front desk staff at the hotel while she and Eliot snuck through the fire escape onto the roof to watch the sunset. )

Part Four

sunspot: hardison, eliot and parker (hardison eliot parker)

Parker had spent the night mostly awake. Eliot slept like a rock and Parker curled across his chest like a cat, but she couldn't get to sleep. Her mind was spinning with possible futures and visions of baby bunnies and she knew she was going to majorly regret it when Nate showed up to get them onto the plane in a few hours.

She slept most of the way from Rome to Tokyo and threatened anyone who attempted to wake her with bared teeth and a growl. )

It started with a late night, a two litre bottle of orange soda, and a garage full of scrap metal.

Alec Hardison built a prototype of what he called 'Mister Leverage'; a fighting robot with a lever for flipping and a large spike on a downward swinging arm for stabbing. He hid the robot under the work bench and draped a tarp over the whole thing in case his girlfriend came into the garage and wanted to know what was going on. He would find a more secure place to keep it in the next few days.

'You didn't come to bed last night,' Parker said carefully at breakfast the next morning. )

Major thanks to [ profile] deadflowers5 for the awesome collaboration. <3

And uh, just for the record, I've been writing this since way before The Girl's Night Out Job aired. Just in case that question comes up.

Hardison built a robot to fight, but he gave it artificial intelligence to win. He didn’t expect it to come to life and for it to become such a big part of his life.

Dear Mr. Spencer,
I want to again thank you for agreeing to come on board with us here at The Greater Cityopolis Area Zoo for this momentous undertaking.

We're all looking forward to meeting you when you arrive. If there is anything I can do to make your transition any easier, please don't hesitate to contact me.

And, of course, [personal profile] cantarina for being a brilliant beta and only making me cry a few times (and for not eating me because I just thanked her in a sentence starting with 'and').

All of the gratitude to [ profile] pyalgroundblz for the creating absolutely fantastic art and one of the best mixes I've ever heard. I am very happy to have gotten to work with such a great artist.

I also want to thank [ profile] inkruns for being herself, always.

And oh, [personal profile] sparrowshellcat drew fanart. (Moderately NSFW, a little spoiler-y for the fic)

Leverage is the hot, exciting place on the restaurant scene these days, thanks to its hot, exciting executive chef, Eliot Spencer. New hire Alec Hardison is a mild mannered, smooth talking waiter by night and a double-life-living, top secret culinary school student by day. Together, they'll cook up some sizzling dishes... both in and out of the kitchen.

Eliot Spencer was being hailed as the hottest new thing on the food scene since the oven, and while that was great for business, Hardison didn't really see what the big deal was. Yeah, the food at Leverage looked good, but Hardison wasn't convinced by that alone. Seeing was not everything. It had to taste good too. Not that he could judge the taste; he hadn't eaten anything Spencer had cooked yet, and he was expecting it to be a few more years before he could afford to eat at Leverage on his own dime. But wait staff like him sometimes got asked to be guinea pigs for new dishes or got leftovers after a service, so he figured it was only a matter of time until he found out exactly what Spencer could do and if he lived up to any of the hype.

And Alec Hardison would be the first one to admit that he was a little weird about food.  )
