Title: The Farer
Author: Serpentis </a></b></a></div>black_minorca
Summary:
Sigurd fishes, scraping a living on the chilly wastes of the Orcadian coast, while all around him the world changes. He has to battle with a wife who is rebellious and a young son who seems drawn to the Christian faith, while being aware of his failure as a man, a husband, and a father.
Disclaimer:
All mine.
Author's Notes:
First thing I have written for two years, and it's quite short, just a scene setting for a longer chaptered story I have in mind. The idea came from a book I was reading, The History of Scotland, by the late and great Magnus Magnusson, regarding the Viking crusaders known as Jerusalem Farers. They've left one of the largest collections of runic graffiti in a cairne called Maes Howe (and one day I am going to go and see it for myself), which is in Orkney. It's the idea of the Viking Crusader that fascinates me - this bloody and warlike culture of myth, and the reality of the Vikings in the world in the 11th and 12th centuries. They were far more cosmopolitan, recruited as mercenaries by the Byzantine Empire (the Varingian Guards), had excellent trading links with the growing population of Rus and through the Volga and the Dneiper to the Black Sea and therefore the Mediterranean. They were far more sophisticated than considered, though their sagas and myths raise the spectre of Beowulf and blood feuds.

I like history *smiles* Warnings that this is rough.

Title: All Out to Get You
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd, as I'm so nice.
Rating: R.
Summary: Dom's three thousand miles away and crashing like a Spectrum ZX, and why isn't Billy picking up the bloody telephone?
Disclaimer: I don't own anything. I swear, I'm a leper or something.
Feedback: makes my frontal lobes tingle for you.
Author's Notes: I've been away, I don't know if you've noticed, but I think I'm back. Work ate my brains, I'm a tax officer now, you think I get inspired? This is a songfic, it's a lovely song, by the all conquering James who are marvellous, but then you don't need to have the music to be able to read. And if anyone wants the MPEG of the song, poke me and I shall provide like the sait that I am.

*snort*

Monaboyd: The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Title: The Mysterious Affair at Styles
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd and others.
Rating: R.
Summary: A beautiful heiress dies in suspicious circumstances, so who dunnit? The mysterious Styles Hall holds more secrets than even Inspector Boyd could dream of; deviance, Bolshevism, and a young man with silver rings on his fingers who holds the key to everything.
Disclaimer: If I was, I'd be God, or Agatha Christie. Who is dead.
Feedback: is smarter than Hercule Poirot and cleverer than Miss Marple.
Author's Notes: Attack of the Mutant Crossover Bunnies, sort of. This is a strange AU fic set in the late 1920s, and which takes rather too many cues from the marvellous and splendid Agatha Christie, queen of the gentle and upper-class detective murder novel. The title is a rip-off of one of her earlier works, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, starring one of my personal heroes, Poirot.

Serkisbean: Twenty Eight Days Later

Title: Twenty Eight Days Later
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Serkisbean.
Rating: NC17.
Summary: When London's water supply is poisoned, the world ends in a shuffle of the living Dead and only the quickest witted survive. It's easier to hole up in a grubby flat with a man from Sheffield that he hates than fleeing, but at least Andy's got some hope of survival.
Disclaimer: Nope. If I did, I'd be richer.
Feedback: is something akin to an AK:47 against a bunch of Zombies. Fire at will.
Author's Notes: Right, this isn't a nice fic, I warn you now. There's violence and death and the Undead, with graphic images. If I had to think of something to compare it to it would be a bastard child of Stephen King, Day of the Triffids, and 28 Days Later. If this sounds familiar, or the notes do, this is because this is the sister piece to Deathwatch, the Monaboyd zombie fic. I've also seen 28 Days Later now, very good, enjoyable. Who'd have thought that of Dr Who, hmmm?

Like that fic this one isn't happy. Not happy at all. Consider yourselves warned.

This is for sunsetmog who wanted Serkisbean, rugby, beer, and mud. She got a few added undead thrown in for the ride.

Title: Laid
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd.
Rating: NC17. So NC17.
Summary: A little story of rough kinky sex and sexual obsessiveness.
Disclaimer: Not mine. If they were, they'd be on Ebay.
Feedback: is my Britpop. It's my crack. It's my Pulp, Placebo and James.
Author's Notes: It started out as PWP but got a plot somewhere along the line, and first person is fun, I forgot how much I liked it. This is songfic - don't run! It's not obvious! It's based on the brilliant Laid by those Britpop boys James. Best band of the nineties for me, I swear, they're fantastic. Look, it's a song about kinky sex and obsession, how fantastic are they? So, we have *looks* alleys, biting, bondage, bruises, cross-dressing, domination, eyeliner, knife-play (no bleeding, well, not much, teeny bit), obsession, wrestling, other stuff.

Have fun.

This is for kraken_wakes. After all, she loves James and I need to make it up to her as she had Zombiefic nightmares, bless her.

Deathwatch: Monaboyd NC17

Title: Deathwatch.
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd.
Rating: NC17.
Summary: When London's water supply is poisoned, the world ends in a shuffle of the living Dead and only the quickest witted survive. Dom's got it covered...he hopes he's got it covered. But then there's always one last bullet left in case he is Infected, isn't there? And who the hell is the Scottish bloke who turns up asking for asylum?
Disclaimer: Nope. If I did, I'd be richer.
Feedback: is something akin to an AK:47 against a bunch of Zombies. Fire at will.
Author's Notes: Right, this isn't a nice fic, I warn you now. There's violence and death and the Undead, with graphic images. If I had to think of something to compare it to it would be a bastard child of Stephen King, Day of the Triffids, and 28 Days Later. I've not seen the film, want to though, but - you see where I'm going with this.

It's not a happy fic, alright? Just saying. Warning for a reason.

Oh, and thanks to stasi_rainbow for giving me the idea. Not that she knows she did, but she did, bless her slashy socks.

Title: From Russia With Love
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd and, well, you'll see. Definitely Monaboyd though.
Rating: This is a R.
Summary: But then Boyd was Boyd. Boyd was paid to take out people whom his government didn't wish to deal with. One little squeeze of that trigger, and his target was no more worry for MI5. This changes when 006 is captured and murdered by the enemy; both the Secret Services and 007 want their revenge. It had got personal.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Definitely not belonging to me. So so not.
Feedback: is smoother than a martini, shaken not stirred.
Author's Notes: This is a long fic, I warn you. It's a long fic, with guns. Now, I'm liking longs fics with guns, especially sexy guns wielded by sexy men. It's so strange in someone who really doesn't like violence that I find men with guns rather saucy. I think this is why I like Tarantino films so much. Anyway! This is a shameful rip-off of about four Bond films , of which you'll see when you read it. Actually, I really like Bond, and I'ms tarting to think that the best ones have Gold in the title. Goldfinger. The Man With The Golden Gun. Goldeneye. Plus, they had good Bonds. But then what's a Bond when you've got a Boyd, right?

Title: Monaboyd: The Musical (Act II)
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd and, well, weird stuff going down here.
Rating: This is a PG13. It'll get higher.
Summary: Billy isn't a usual Slayer but he's good at his job, even though short skirts and halternecks don't suit him. However, when everyone spontaneously starts to sing, things start getting even weirder. What is this musical sensation? Can Sean Bean sing? What has Elijah got to do with this? Who is the sexy demon? And, most specifically, will Billy be lured by the Darkness that is Hollywood?
Disclaimer: Not mine. Not mine. Not even mine in the Buffyverse.
Feedback: harmonises beautifully.
Author's Notes: All Singing and All Dancing, and we have both here. Marvellously choreographed and everything, how wonderful *grins* I said I'd link to the original songs, and here you are.

Actually, people have taken off the MP3's, so I'll have to link you to this until I find somewhere that has the songs as a website download, and not on Blubster or anything. You can download them off there, if you're really desperate. It's free, after all *grins* Original lyrics for the songs are here

Title: Pro Patria Mori - Chapter VII
Author: Serpentis lord_alexander
Pairing: Monaboyd and some others as well for good measure
Rating: Bordering on the NC17
Summary: Yorkshire. 1929. Founder's Day drifted against them like the faintest touch of gossamer thread, and it would prove to be like no other.
Disclaimer: St Regulus doesn't exist. Shame. The other people do though. Not a shame. Not mine though.
Feedback: is a perfectly buttered piece of Toast
Author's Notes: I'm back in the groove - enjoy this. It's got actual Monaboyd in it, and everything. Shock horror, you may faint, etc.etc.
