mrstater: (Sylar/Elle Dead)
Title: In the Name of the Son
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Characters & Pairings: Sylar/Elle, Noah Gray
Rating & Warnings: R for language, sex, violence, mentions of abortion and sadism, character death
Format & Word Count: WIP, this chapter weighs in at 5712 words
Summary: You make a turn onto the highway in the opposite direction of the path of flight you planned together last night. "Everything is going to change." [AU]
Author's Notes: This fic is the result of thinking about episode 3x04 and just how it was that Sylar ended up being (apparently) a single dad living in the Bennet house, and this is the result. The story takes place in that alternate future, so basically everything after the car rental scene in "Eclipse" didn't happen. :) Many thanks to [ profile] godricgal for her magnificent beta work. I hope y'all enjoy. I hunger for feedback like Sylar hungers for abilities. Except I won't, you know, cut open any heads to get it. ;)

mrstater: (Sylar Evil)
I tried to quit Heroes. I really did. But I kept watching, because Mr. Tater wanted to at least finish off the season, and what do you know but after four or five episodes of unadulterated loathing, the penultimate episode was Sylar-centric, awesome, and totally drew me back. Even Mr. Tater, who does not have a crush on Sylar like I do, commented afterward that all the Sylar episodes are good, not least of all because Zachary Quinto can actually act. And he is so utterly captivating on screen, no matter what ridiculous lines they give him. (Although, it seems to me that as inconsistent as the writers are with Sylar's back story, they write Sylar better than they write anyone else.) Anyway, I'm back on the love side of my love-hate relationship with Heroes and am looking forward to the finale next week, especially if this really comes to pass. (Because it is so OTT I adore it.) And I will probably be back for season four.

A close second to Sylar rekindling my love for this show was Ando telling Hiro, "You're a little Fascist like Superman."

Cut for spoilers for the past couple episodes. )

Heroes sucks even more hardcore when you've been watching BSG. )

In other news, I renewed my paid account the other day and completely forgot about the free icon space you get for doing that. So I was pleasantly surprised when I went to upload new Helo and Sharon icons I made tonight and didn't have to delete any of my other icons! Not that I probably won't end up getting rid of some other ones, since I'm currently so in love with Helo that I want more of him on my LJ. (I dreamed about him all last night. Running away from Cylons in my neighborhood has never been so nice!) But for now, it was as squee-inducing as...certain things that surprised me regarding Helo in the BSG finale. ;)

Title: The Blessing
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Pairing: Gabriel/Elle
Rating: G
Format & Word Count: one-shot, 960 words
Summary: "What do you want our little boy to look like? What do you hope he'll be?" After a sonogram, Gabriel and Elle speculate about their baby. [AU]
Author's Notes: Written for Drabble Challenge #4 at [ profile] sylelle_chall, for the prompt The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves in them. (Thomas Merton) Feedback is love. :)

Title: To Turn Back Time
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Characters & Pairings: Gabriel/Elle
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 for mild sexuality
Format & Word Count: one-shot, 2340 words
Summary: If you want it enough, you can turn back time, erase memory so that the past year never happened. A kiss inspires time travel and reminds Gabriel and Elle how they once felt about each other. [Set during episodes 3x08, "Villains" and 3x10, "The Eclipse, Part I"]
Author's Notes: I've been wanting to write about Gabriel and Elle's former relationship, though this wasn't quite what I had in mind. It's sort of two missing moments at once, one bridging parts one and two of "The Eclipse," and the other expanding the pie scene from episode 3x08. Oh, and one bit of this was inspired by some adorable behind the scenes pics of Zach and Kristen, which you can view here and here. Many thanks to [ profile] godricgal for betaing! Feedback welcome and much appreciated. :)

Title: While Guardian Angels Watch
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Characters & Pairings: Gabriel/Elle, Noah Gray
Rating & Warnings: PG for mild sexuality and religious references
Format & Word Count: one-shot, 2752 words
Summary: On Christmas Eve, they go to church. With them for parents, Noah could use a little of the grace of God in his life. But after church, Gabriel finds a little grace, too.
Author's Notes: Written for the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge at [ profile] sylelle_chall. Tis the season for fluff and happy family fic, right? I've taken a few liberties with the alternate future timeline presented in episode 3x4, "I Am Become Death," most notably by setting this story in New York rather than Costa Verde. Gabriel's definitely a Petrelli in this one, because it's fun. ;) Hope y'all enjoy. Huge thanks to [ profile] godricgal for her awesome beta work, especially in helping me sort out some verb tense issues! Feedback is very welcome and much appreciated.

It's going to be tough to think of things to say that don't echo [ profile] jncar verbatim, but I shall try.

It does tingle. )
mrstater: (Sylar/Elle Close)
Have made a few icons from Heroes episodes 3x10 and 3x11. I know I'm not the fanciest icon-maker in the world, but if no-frills and Sylar/Elle hotness are your thing, I offer these up to whomever wants them! If you do snag, please be sure to:

Feel free to snag any and all icons should you so desire. But please be sure to:

1. Comment.
2. Credit [ profile] mrstater as the icon maker.
3. Ask before adding text to textless icons.

And please be sure not to:

4. Hotlink.
5. Use the icons as anything but icons (background collages, background images, slide shows, etc.) without permission.

Warning, I'm up past my bedtime, and may not be totally coherent. )

And in case you missed it while LJ was being flakey today, I updated Angel of Death with Part IV. Enjoy!

I swear to you, they could spend forty minutes a week on nothing but watchmaker!Gabriel Gray sitting in his shop, twiddling his thumbs while wearing his sweater vests, side-parted hair, and watchmaker glasses, and I would happily watch the show. )

There's probably lots more I wanted to say about this episode, but my mind's mush now after not enough sleep last night, a long workout this morning, and a full day of work. So I'll close with a musical selection that's relevant to the discussion. I was listening to Radiohead's Pablo Honey album the other day and thought "Creep" was the perfect song for Sylar. (And apparently so did a bazillion other people at YouTube who made Sylar fanvids to the song.) But here's a cover of "Creep" performed by Scala & Kolacny Brothers, a Belgian teenaged girls' choir. Even if you're not a Heroes/Sylar fan, but just a music fan, you should check this out, because it's beautiful. (Warning - it does contain an F-bomb or two.)

(They've also done Everything In Its Right Place" from Kid A, a lovely cover of Coldplay's Yellow, and U2's With Or Without You, among others.)

Completely Random, Non-Heroes Comment:

While I have said on numerous past occasions that I could see any actor but David Thewlis several actors in the role of Remus Lupin, I recently ran across this image of author Jasper Fforde, and it's the closest I've ever seen to my mental image of Remus. I think it's because he looks a bit like a short-haired version of the Remus illustration in the US edition of OotP, and I always imagine a real-life version of that whenever I'm writing Remus....
mrstater: (Grinning Gabe)
My cousin sent me a "Vote Petrelli" button Piece of Flair at Facebook. I am now, honest to God, seriously considering writing in Nathan Petrelli on by ballot come election day, or at least wearing a "Vote Petrelli" button to the polls, because I like him better than both candidates. Knowing fandoms, there's probably an active campaign for Petrelli; I imagine he could probably win a decent percentage of the third party vote if people write him in.

I didn't think I'd get to watch Heroes till tonight, but last night's episode had downloaded by the time I got home from choir rehearsal, and I was able to convince Mr. Tater to stay up and watch it on the pretense that I was wired from singing (which was true) and 40 minutes in front of the TV would help me wind down (which was definitely not true). Episode 3.5 was good enough that I laid awake till after midnight, dreamed about it all night, and then woke up too early this morning still thinking about it.

Cut for spoilers )
mrstater: (Mmm Sylar)
I've been holding out for this week's episode of Heroes till tonight, because Monday's choir night and Tuesday Mr. Tater was watching the debate. Man, was it worth the wait! The season premiere didn't have me convinced that this was going to continue to be one of my favorite shows, but thankfully, the most recent two episodes weren't as lame as I feared. Not nearly. I always did have a thing for the bad guys, and since "Villains" is the name of the game...

[ profile] eido, I am totally counting on you to share some squeeage with me, since we tend to be in agreement about so much. ;)

Spoilers for episode 3.4, 'I Am Become Death' )
