Words With Friends by Swellison with artwork by Lyn

Words With Friends Genre: Gen, missing scenes, angst
Rating: K
Warnings: None
Summary: Blair’s thoughts and actions during Night Shift. Did he really hear what Jim was saying in the garage?

Author’s Notes: In the on-air years of The Sentinel, certain episodes just naturally had a lot of fanfic written about and around them, such as Cypher, Blind Man’s Bluff, Sentinel, Too and The Sentinel by Blair Sandburg. Night Shift hasn’t generated that level of fictional attention, but it is a special episode to me because it was the episode being filmed when the first TS convention, Sentinel Con was held in Vancouver. I attended the convention with a few fan-friends and we decided to make it a true vacation, staying for the week, culminating with the Convention. While out sightseeing, we stumbled upon TS’s filming location and spent a day on-set, quietly observing everything. Now, many years later, I finally have a Night Shift triptych: watched the episode being filmed, watched the episode, and wrote a Night Shift story.
Huge, huge thanks to magician113 for being an awesome cheerleader, beta and sounding board! This story benefits greatly from her input. Many thanks to alynt for the fabulous artwork, full of Sentinel colors, and for a last-minute beta job. I also found Becky’s transcripts and Starfox’s Gallery very helpful when I was too lazy—er, pressed for time, to go back and watch the episode, for the umpteenth time, for details;-)

One of the Guys by Patt with artwork by Luna_61

One of the Guys Genre: Mild slash
Rating: R
Warnings: angst

The Hunt by Flitter with artwork by Patt

The Hunt Genre: Slash
Rating: R
Warnings: Attempted Non-Con
Summary: The gong rang loud in the still air. All at once, the waiting empaths jerked and then began to run.

Anahata by Mab with artwork by Banbury

Anahata Genre: Gen
Rating: suitable for young teens and up
Warnings: None
Summary: After the events of the series end, Blair and Jim take a break at the Burning Man festival.

Author’s Notes: I recently found out about Burning Man, and I immediately connected it with Blair. I chose the Burning Man 2000 festival as my inspiration for this story as the connection of themes and ideas was convenient, even though the time frame doesn’t fit canon. Although all the events and displays described were real, I think it’s best to describe this as loosely inspired by the actual Burning Man 2000 Project, since there is only so much the internet can do for you from a distance of twelve years and 8,000 miles.
Burning Man assumes that every attendee is a participant and as such expects them to provide their own shelter, water and food. Burning Man organises the tent city and provides toilets, ice and coffee.
The words on the poster that Jim reads come direct from this Wikipedia entry. All my knowledge of Anahata is via Wikipedia also, and I apologise for any misinterpretations.
Thank you to EE for the lookover.


A Very Delightful Friday in Cascade by Silvershadows99 with artwork by AnnieB

A Very Delightful Friday in Cascade Genre: slash (J/B), crack
Rating: R-rated
Warnings: bad language; annoying post-it notes
Summary: Everyone in Major Crimes eventually finds something to be delighted about.

Author’s Notes: I need to thank my wonderful cheerleader Patt for all the encouragement, the awesome Bluewolf and Annie for beta’ing at lightning speed on very short notice, and Annie for the story art.


Hungry Like the Wolf by PsychGirl with artwork by AnnieB

Hungry Like the Wolf Genre: Slash, PWP.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: none
Summary: When Jim gets exposed to an organic fertilizer, the side effects are beyond anything he could imagine.

Author’s Notes: Thank you to Magician, T Verano, and T.W. Lewis for the beta.  All mistakes herein are my own.
This is sort of a companion piece to my story Animal Natures.  But you don’t have to have read that story to understand this one.


William’s Family by Patt with artwork by Flitter

William's Family Genre: Slash
Rating: R
Warnings: Language, angst, slash, established couple.
Summary: A look into the life of William Ellison after his heart attack.  Will he be even closer to his sons?

The World is All at Our Feet by Banbury with artwork by snailbones

The World is All at Our Feet Genre: slash

Beep Beep by Laurie with artwork by Beth

Beep Beep Genre: Slash. AU: Jim and Blair meet before Jim finishes the Police Academy.
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None
Summary: Jim Ellison does a favor for his father and ends up in charge of one over-sexed, grunge loving, mop-haired anthropology grad student.

Author’s Notes: Beta’ed by Bluewolf.  She’s a star.
This story was inspired by me thinking about the old Road Runner cartoons. Remember how hard Wile E.Coyote worked to catch the Road Runner, and how he always got it wrong and his schemes backfired on him?  Well, think of Jim as the coyote, out to teach that pesky roadrunner, Blair, some lessons about life.
No actual coyotes, roadrunners, or cartoons are mentioned in the story.
