Taking Out the Trash
Author: katers007
Fandom: "Dexter"/"Watchmen"
Summary: Dexter and Rorschach talk business. For dragons_muse, one of three "Dexter" fics based on these prompts. The story is set post-season 3, pre-season 4 of "Dexter."
Rating: R
Characters: Dexter, Rorschach
Genre: Gen, Crossover
Word Count: 3,327
Status: Completed
Warning: Several instances depicting physical violence as befitting highly disturbed characters.
Notes/Disclaimer: I own nothing related to "Dexter" or "Watchmen." The timeline of "Watchmen" is bumped up to present day rather than the 1980's (I know, blasphemy!) for ease of character interaction without messy time-traveling devices coming into play. The story also takes place before Rorschach's demise, as the last thing Dexter needs is another dead person hanging around his subconscious talking to him. The last line is dedicated to missbreese, who thankfully shares my sense of humor and let me parody the plot idea at her. :)

Lovecraft Crossovers

A Statement in the Ice
Author: meganphntmgrl
Lovecraft xover.
SUMMARY: Suppose Adrian came across the Necronomicon while buying some Egyptian artifacts for his collection. He starts reading. What follows is the inevitable slow descent into madness...

The Deadly Light
Author: anactoria
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairing: Various, mainly Adrian/Dan.
Rating: PG for this part, probably R-ish overall.
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.
Thanks to flyingrat42 for all her beta help. :) Any remaining mistakes are, of course, my own.

The Cats of New York
Author: 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.)

Set for Life
Adrian invokes an ancient deity by accident.
(Not precisely Lovecraft, but close enough.)

Zero at the Bone
by Elspethdixon
Written for the Watchmen kink meme, for the prompt "Rorschach feeding Dan sugar cubes in a h/c situation." Possible pre-slash.

Unnecessary Things
by Elspethdixon
Summary: Dan cooks. Rorschach eats. They don't talk.
Notes: Written for the prompt "Daniel cooking Rorschach a dinner that is NOT a can of beans. Slashy plz. Porn even. But with cooking. :-D" This is not dinner. It's not especially sexy either (I'm not sure how slashy it even is - I think it may even be gen). Food and cooking are involved, though. Nominally comics-verse, but feel free to imagine PatrickWilson!Daniel if you want to ^_^.

Daniel offhandedly displays his knowledge of literature and this turns Rorschach on.

Innocence & Experience
Dan and Rorschach see a unicorn.

Dancing Around It
Author: kovacsisdead
Characters/Pairings: Dan/Rorschach, every last one. Mentions of Dan/Laurie
Summary: Ten songs, chosen by iTunes' shuffle, only work on a given ficlet until the song you're writing it to is over, then move on. As one might imagine, these are a little time crunched, and I cheated. I think. I wrote in Aaron-eese (my personal shorthand), then translated it into longhand when all ten were done. Added nothing, just… you know, used whole words.
Ratings/Warnings: Mostly PG13. Number six is possibly bordering on R. Slashiness and language abound.
Notes: Some of these are approaching seriousness. A couple are just plain silliness on my part. Ficlet 1 is nothing but me babbling. Ficlet 5 is pure unadulterated awfulness. Ficlet 6 takes place in Etherati's Zombie-verse. Ficlets 3, 6, and 10 are pure silliness on my part.

Love Not Less
SUMMARY: Dan/Rorschach, established relationship with frustrated UST and very limited physical intimacy due to Rorschach's sexual hangups
RATING: R

Of Love, Duty, and Class E Felonies
Rorschach waits to accept Dan's overtures because he is, unbeknownst to Dan, underage.

Hands
Author: etherati
Characters/Pairings: Ror/Dan
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Sometimes a kink is not just a kink. Sometimes you don't even realize the damage you're doing.
Rating/Warnings: NC-17. The porn by itself might only be an R, but there's also some twisted variant on bdsm, blood, violence, and the ambiguous morality of mistaking serious psychological damage for a kink. Slash and smut, obvs.
Notes: Kinkmeme prompt: Rorschach has a need to be abused/in pain to validate his sexuality and Dan's torn between his freaky side and the side of him that's apalled. This is VERY outside the box for me - but, I think, a valid alternate characterization.

Captcha and Misc V
Author: etherati
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Ficlets. #1 was for the prompt "Write Rorschach eating something other than beans", #2 and #3 are Captcha fics. #1 and #2 are Dan and Ror, #3 is Adrian.

Rating/Warnings: NC-17, absolutely. There's a lot going on alongside the porn but the porn is some of the filthiest I've written, so please, don't expect soft-focus vagueness and metaphors. I was having a really, really rough week. Notes: Kinkmeme prompt: Fancy party/restaurant with them both dressed up, and sex in a bathroom stall while they're there. I

Fandom: Watchmen

Rating/Warnings: Definitely NC-17 this time. Smut. Explicit. Consensual, but imagery may push some dubcon buttons if you're sensitive to them.
Notes: More JUST PORN. Because the last one was fun and I decided to up the ante, and [info]liodain insists that my smut-to-not_smut ratio is too low. XD Kinkmeme fill, prompt was for Rough!Suprise!Sex involving handcuffs. Ror, you are so, so messed up. D:

by roachpatrol
Rating: R for sex and murder.
Daniel/Rorschach.
He is looking for a killer: a killer of killers, who preys on pimps and drug dealers, gang lords and pedophiles. People no one sane will miss are turning up with their throats torn out, as if by an animal. They've been bled out, though the blood is never on the ground, not as much as has been let out of the men. Something wilder than a dog, smaller than a tiger, that takes a man down with one bite and then neatly licks up all the evidence afterward.
