are those men kissing? by animekittysama

haven in a heartless world; Jayne/Giles; PG-13

About a year ago, I wrote a Rupert Giles/Jayne Cobb fic called and the world cracked open for the crossover round. I've revisited that 'verse, and mireille719 graciously gave me permission to post a link to the sequel here in case any of you who liked the first fic might be interested.

Title: haven in a heartless world
Pairing: Giles/Jayne
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In which Giles is compelled to justify his relationship with Jayne to all and sundry

So, Wash says. You and Jayne. That doesn't seem to be going away.

Ex Turpi Causa - Simon/Wesley - Crossover: Firefly+Angel

Ex Turpi Causa
by Dr Squidlove

A lawyer offers to bring Simon and River their freedom. Simon thinks they'd be better off taking their chances on Serenity.

Crossover: Firefly and Angel.

Hey look, ma! I'm on time!
Written for the Firefly round of the Whedonverse maleslashminis for alixtii, who wanted Simon Tam/Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, with checking the encyclopedia and kissing.

Yay, team Fireflyminis! We three, we brave!

Rated a mild R, for sex. Everyone's all grown-up and consensual. No violence. I don't warn for anything else.

A Word from Your Mods

We're catching up on some of the admin tasks that we're a bit behind on, and we're noticing something that we need to call attention to:

maleslashminis is for male/male slash stories.

(Be grateful: we resisted our urge to make that sentence blink.)

That doesn't mean that other pairings aren't welcome as part of the story--heck, with so many of our stories being set in the Buffyverse, which has both f/f and m/f canon pairings, that would be ridiculously limiting. And it doesn't mean that every story has to include NC-17 smut, lovingly described in every minute detail. (They totally can, if you want. Especially if there's Giles. But we digress.) It doesn't even mean that every story has to be relationship-focused; there's a definite place here for stories in which Wesley and Gunn are in an established relationship, and they fight crime demons while bickering about whose turn it is to do the laundry.

What it does mean is that if you think your story is primarily gen, or primarily het, to the point that you'd label it that way in your header, then it doesn't fit here. It's probably an awesome story, and if you wrote it to fit your assignment, you might even want to drop a link to the requester, who may very well enjoy stories about Xander and Andrew tooling around the country in a Ford pickup, looking for slayers and not being attracted to one another at all, if she wanted Xander/Andrew fic in which they did the same thing but also made out a lot. But it's not a maleslashminis story.

We have no plans to read the posted stories and decide whether they're "slashy enough" to belong here. When we're reading your stories, we're too busy enjoying a good read to worry about any concept like "slashy enough," never mind how utterly nit-picky that would be. We're leaving that decision up to you, the authors. But if you don't think your story is really slash, then we trust you to try again to give your requester the story that she (or he) asked for.
