sam_storyteller: Epilogue
"So...where do we take him?" Steve asked, once they'd cornered Loki and let him get his I surrender quip in. "The Helicarrier's falling apart, and I don't think the drunk tank at the nearest precinct is gonna hold him."

"I think I should get a shot," Clint said.

"What?" Steve asked.

"A shot. I think I should get a shot. I'm good not using arrows," Clint added, when Tony flinched. "I just think given what he did to me, personally, I should get a free hit."

"He destroyed half of midtown," Steve pointed out. "If we give you a shot we have to give everyone a shot and I don't have that kind of time."

"I can represent both myself and the people of New York," Clint replied. "I'm multi-talented that way." [7278]

sam_storyteller: Extremely Hot And Currently Female
Summary: Tony knows he shouldn't sleep with Loki, it's just sometimes he's drunk and she's female and he forgets why.

Warnings: Everything is clearly consensual, but there is intoxicated sex, unsafe sex, and semi-public sex. WELL IT'S LOKI YOU GUYS COME ON. [9685]

theoriginalsam: By The People, or How Reality Television Did Away With Campaign Ads
Here's the thing: a presidential candidate can spend a day serving food at a soup kitchen, but the news is never, ever, going to play more than a thirty-second highlight reel. The papers and even the websites are only going to run still photos. Whereas if you put him or her under a camera for the entire day, and then you take that back and edit it into the forty minutes a reality show runs to...

People snap. People get cranky, they fuck up, they don't make the cut. And you can put it all on the television.

It's not real. It's still fake. But it's reality-television fake. So at least The People know it's fake.

Reality television isn't about reality, in case you hadn't guessed. It's still about stories. But it's about crafting those stories from raw footage, and the viewers and the editors both know that's what it is.

Nobody needs reality. It's not like they were getting it from the politicians anyway.

"That's the slogan," Moseley says, when a bright young woman named Deb points this out. "That's how we sell the show."

Nobody needs reality.

It should be scary, but it's not.

sam_storyteller: Oh, What A Show
Circus Camelot has a building it doesn't own, a trick rider who just ran off to do panto, and a serious sponsor problem. Fortunately, it also has Merlin Emrys, master illusionist, and Arthur Pendragon, prince of tumblers.

sam_storyteller: #LOVESTORY
"You're lucky you're pretty," Jack informed him. "That was Mainframe's boyfriend."

"Computers can't have boyfriends!" Gwen said.

"Mainframe can if she wants," Jack told her, crossing his arms.

"Ianto," Gwen prompted, gesturing at Jack, as if Ianto knew how to fix their fundamentally defective employer.

"Don't look at me, that's what I told him a week ago," Ianto said.

"God, the twenty-first century," Jack rolled his eyes. "Why are you people so against the union of a cybernetic AI-operated robot suit and a centuries-old alien-human hybrid supercomputer?"

"Have you not read any Philip K. Dick?" Ianto asked.

"Lived in the future," Jack sing-songed.

"I hate it when he does that," Gwen muttered to Ianto.

sam_storyteller: Half A Dozen Laconic Bastards
John Sheppard didn't know he was part of an ATA-gene cloning project until it was much, much too late. Neal and Zane have a serious case of sibling rivalry, Ianto and Tim don't like the uniforms, and Gwen isn't sure she wants to be leader after all. [As one commenter put it, it's basically the Grand Unified Theory of Hair. It's awesome!]

sam_storyteller : Eternal Springtime
"Does it seem like winter's been really mild this year?" he asked Neal, hoping Neal would go off on one of his occasional monologues and he could judge whether the winter was slow to come or whether he was just insane.

Neal, sitting at the conference table, dropped his head into his arms.

"I was wondering when you'd say something," he said, his voice muffled by his shirtsleeves.

"You were?" Peter asked.

"It's my fault," Neal said, looking up.

"Wait, what's your fault?"

"That there's no winter." Neal dropped his head into his arms again. "It's my fault winter's not coming."

Peter raised his eyebrows. Neal blew air through his lips, frustrated.

"Are you feeling all right?" Peter asked carefully.

sam_storyteller: Lost Loves
Peter raised an eyebrow. "You're not usually that upset when people don't get caught," he pointed out.

"She should be," Neal said. He looked...almost angry. "You shouldn't -- it's just -- it's not right," he said. "It...look we, they, whatever, what I used to be, we have an image to uphold. We have a reputation. Someone like that, doing that, it's wrong. She needs to be stopped."

Peter set the file down and looked at Neal curiously. "How do you know it's not her?"

Neal met his stare with defiance. "Because I met Carmen Sandiego, and that woman is not Carmen Sandiego."

sam_storyteller: Lab Book
Sherlock kissed like he'd read about it in a book somewhere, but a very thorough and detailed book that had diagrams and step-by-step instructions. It wasn't clinical, precisely, but there was a certain 'am I doing this right' tension that spoke of educated inexperience.

Also he was really tall. Just -- stupidly tall. He'd probably grown that way on purpose to annoy people.
