Title: Tuesday Night
Author: Harper Kingsley
Characters: Sunfire (Seth Payne), Teen Steel (Tony Randolph), Monteressa, Hartache
Genre: superhero, action, drama, mm
Rating: mature
Summary: Seth is back in Star City with Tony on yet another disastrous mission.

Following Seth was like second nature. Tony had to admit that the guy had fallen into the role of leader as natural as breathing. Probably a result of the leadership courses he'd received at the Training Center as a teenager. Tony had only managed summer classes until the CMPF scholarship, but Seth had been training to be a superhero from the time he was fourteen years old.

Part of Tony would always wonder what his life would have been like if he'd had the money for the intensive training Seth had received. but that was an old regret, one that he couldn't do anything about now.

They were jogging a winding path that cut through side streets and down alleys, keeping an eye out for any people. Everything seemed deserted. It was eerie to see no people bustling about during the day. It gave a horror movie vibe that made the patch of skin between his shoulders itch.

Seth must have shared his unease, because they were moving at a good clip. It wouldn't take them too long to reach Triangle Park, maybe another twenty minutes.

Tony was starting to think things were looking like cake. They'd reach the Park, lay the charges, and be out of range before the fireworks started. They were going to make it.

A flicker of warning. He body-slammed Seth out of the way with a flying tackle. "Get down!"

The ground they would have passed through exploded with a rain of pulverized asphalt and burning debris.

Title: Faizel II
Author: Harper Kingsley
Genre: mm urban fantasy
Pairing: Charlemagne/Faizel
Characters: Faizel, Charlemagne, Ewing, Jenny Deacon, Isadore.

.

*
Sometimes Ewing wondered if they had invited a devil into their midst. Because there wasn't a doubt in his mind that Charlemagne was possessed. And the devil was named Faizel. Charlemagne's darling love. The mysterious vampire that had appeared from nowhere to steal Charlemagne's heart and rearrange the natural order of the world.

Ewing personally thought of Faizel as a booty call gone wrong, though he would never say it aloud. He valued his life too much.

Charlemagne wanted to keep Faizel secret, and Ewing was willing to go along with it. Because honestly, how could he even explain someone like Faizel? The guy scared the ever living fuck out of him, and that was no lie.

"Are you certain this is how you want to do things?" Deacon asked in her "I'm a complete hard as nails Law Officer" voice.

Ewing fought to keep still where he knelt on the hardwood floor along with the other low level vampires. It was pretty boring, but he wasn't one to battle the status quo. He didn't want to get tortured and killed.Read more... )

EXCERPT:

CHAPTER ONE

The sun struggled to shine through the clouds, and it was one of those days destined to be miserable. Not just because of the weather, but because of the girl sobbing out her heartbreak on a sterile hospital bed, the sheets pulled up around her shoulders as she buried her face in the flat and lumpy pillow.

Vereint clenched his hands together on the handles of the two shopping bags he held. It took all of his willpower to keep from running into the room and scooping her into his arms. Instead, he stood in the hallway and watched through the window as she mourned the loss of her parents. Behind and to the left of him, he could hear Warrick talking to the nurse and the social worker, and Vereint was sure everything was just about worked out.

They were going to take that little girl home and give her a family and make sure she grew up knowing that she was loved. He didn't think they could ever erase the loss of her parents, but they would try their best to make her realize that she still had a whole life to live and they would be there for her.

Title: The Panic Pure
Author: Harper Kingsley
Genre: mm suspense contemporary romance
Characters: Marshal/Danny, Arthur/Sophia, Joanna

Passion Level: On the sweet end of the spectrum. Hurt/comfort, cuddles, and freakishlyly romantic character.
A/N: This story contains mentions of graphic violence, child abuse, and rape/non-con. People die on screen, but it's pretty glossed. Most everything is the feels and conversation.

WOKE UP IN VEGAS
by Sol Crafter
Genre: mm contemporary romance
Summary: It's what you do when you go to Vegas -- getting married to a random stranger and having to deal with the aftermath. Natasha is not handling it well, and Riley is not being the supporto-guy he always promised he'd be. Though he does kind of appreciate the handsome stranger he's found himself waking up next to.

Available soon(ish).

Excerpt --

They lay sprawled across the tangled sheets, their faces turned from each other but their dark hair meshing on the pillow. Morning light edged in around the gaps in the curtains and the only sound in the room was their quiet breaths.

The hotel room door slammed open with a panicked "Oh holy shit fuck!" from the woman that burst in. Her blond hair was in wild disarray around her shoulders and her tiny black dress was missing one strap and looked as though it had been hastily pulled down over her head. There were still traces of vivid red lipstick around her mouth and her mascara had been smeared to the point of raccoonishness.

Riley jerked upright on the bed, then clutched his head with a heartfelt groan. His usually sun-gilded skin was gray and sickly, his forehead dotted with sweat. "What?" he rasped, blowing out his cheeks. His stomach roiled unpleasantly and for a second he thought he was about to vomit on himself, but he managed to swallow it back down. "Natasha?"

"You gotta help me, this is so stupid, how could something like this have happened? Why would you let me do this?" she shrilled, digging her hands into her hair.

"Nat. Nat. Natasha!" Once he was sure he'd gotten her attention, Riley patted the air in front of himself with his hand. "I have no idea what you're talking about. What did you do? Why are you freaking out?"

She licked her lips, her wild brown eyes focusing on him. "This," she said, holding out her left hand.

Riley had to squint to see, then it took a moment for it to click. "Is that a ring?"

"It's a motherfucking wedding ring!" She shook her hand furiously at him. "I'm that stupid chick that wakes up in Vegas fucking married to some guy I met last night. How the hell could you let this happen to me?"

His mouth just opened and closed soundlessly as he stared at that glint of silver on her ring finger.

"Who are you people? What's going on?" a sleep-roughened voice asked.

Chapter Two of Idlewile is fast approaching the 9,000 word mark and there's still like two scenes to go :o

Still, I'm desperately in love with my errant pop idol. He's just so frickin' cute and his wangst is so scrumptiously delicious. I love to run a guy through the ringer, then have another person rescue him. Though Idle's current angst is mostly mental, remnants from a very sucky childhood in the orphanarium.

Posting "Idlewile" at my FictionPress http://www.fictionpress.com/~harperkingsley but here's a taste of Chapter Two...

Excerpt )



Yeah, chapter two is largely an intro to the characters and the setting they inhabit.

harperkingsley: (Yamiflower)
This is the start of my entry for the Gay Science Fiction Group on Goodreads. There were 12 prompts to choose from and I picked the enemies trapped on a planet together having to get along.

So far in my head, the MCs has just been "he" or "dude." I guess my next step is to come up with a name for him.


EXCERPT--

He woke to the smell of singed hair and the sense that something was very wrong. Everything was stifling hot and the heat level was rising even as he tried to blink his head clear.

There was the blaring of warning alarms and everything was cast in hues of orange, the cockpit looking nightmarish and strange. "Wha..." he coughed, his lungs filling with acrid smoke. It smelled like toxic chemicals and his confused brain tried to remember if the ship's interior was made out of anything that was going to kill him as it melted.

He felt strange, his hands awkward as he fumbled his crash harness off. He grabbed the handle of the emergency kit and pulled it out from under his seat, slinging the strap over his shoulder crosswise so it wouldn't get lost. There were other things he felt like he should grab and some part of him didn't want to leave the "safety" of the ship at all, which was currently a burning deathtrap.

He stumbled passed Steve's already bloating corpse, the slanted angle of the deck nearly sending him tumbling. "Sorry buddy," he rasped. The smoke was rising to choking levels and he covered his mouth and nose with his sleeve. The slick material of his shipsuit didn't breathe very well, and as a result neither did he, but it wasn't like he had much choice. He had to get out of the ship.

His eyes stung and burned as he left the cockpit and faced a raging inferno. The entire aft section of the ship was nothing but flames and oily black smoke, though he was just relieved to see the glowing Emergency Exit sign within stumbling distance.

The fire systems seemed not to have kicked in and once again he vowed to find the guys from Hephaestus Corp and kick their asses. A malfunctioning fire suppression system was a bit more serious than the nonstandard sized cupholders though his anger about it was tinged with hysteria. There was a more than good chance that he was goign to die scrabbling at the door like a rat.

Coughing and fighting the urge to retch, he stumbled to the emergency hatch. The skin on the right side of his body felt like t was trying to curl in on itself away from the heat of the flames. He might have thought the sight beautiful if he wasn't the one currently facing death by roasting--orange and yellow and purple and green flames writhing and twining amongst the supposedly fire resistant seat cushions.

He reached out to grab the door handle, then cursed and jerked back as he felt his skin sizzle. The handle was burning hot and he couldn't believe he hadn't noticed that the plasticene sheath had melted off, leaving just the bare metal.

Tears stung his eyes and the heat and smoke levels were rising. The panicked alarm had risen to a teeth jarring squall and the orange warning light was blink-blink-blinking, urging him to get the hell out before it was too late.

He pulled his sleeve down over his right hand and reached out quickly to grasp the handle and give it a hard shove down. Tears stung his eyes at the pain in his already burned hand but he was running on survival instinct and there was no way he was letting himself burn to death, not without a hell of a fight.

He jerked on the handle, then hurriedly let go. His sleeve had melted to the handle and pulled away with gooey strings fluttering like the tentacles of a clarphod.

With the release of the handle, the door sensors kicked in and he briefly saw a scrolling message pass over the glossy blue material: "Brace yourself for saturation."
He didn't have time to puzzle out what that was supposed to mean before the door blew off its seams with a muffled explosion and shot away into the darkness. And about a million gallons of seawater rushed in.

There was no chance to brace himself as the wave hit him and slammed him against the far bulkhead, the back of his head bouncing against the wall painfully. Water choked down his throat before he managed to close his mouth and he coughed and gagged as more water flooded in.

First death by burning, now death by drowning. He once again cursed the day he decided to join the Reclamation Squadron.
