Run Through the Jungle (a Lost fanfic) by Julie Lynn Hayes

The billboard was one of the largest Hurley had ever seen, dominating the California landscape, eclipsing even the huge letters that spelled out Hollywood.

Wait, what was going on here? And who was the woman whose face loomed larger than life? Did he know her?

The suspicious-looking sign with the glandular condition began to shimmer, the woman’s face going in and out of focus, disappearing just as recognition began to wash over Hurley. He knew he’d seen her before, and he had a feeling he liked her. But now her image had been replaced. By numbers. Very familiar numbers.

Denied: Chapter Thirteen by Cia Nordwell

I could still recall, though it was a dim memory, feeling absolutely enraged when no one would listen to me. Overall, the complete lack of any control over my life had eclipsed that childhood frustration, but I felt it now. “Captain, you have to listen to me. I could be a danger to you right now. What if they found some way to be in my head? To see and hear what I see and hear?”

“I don’t think that’s possible,” Lakshou said. “I don’t sense anything other than your self inside you.”

“Do you sense machines?” I snapped.

“Actually

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 3.2 by Carol Pedroso

Kitryn glared at Simon and could tell the young vamp was trying hard not to laugh. Okay, so, yes, he possibly, maybe, almost definitely looked ridiculous hanging by his middle from a tree. But, really. Did the guy have to laugh at his face?

“Are you going to stand there waving at me all day or get on with the scolding?” Simon’s voice still held amusement. “Of course, you could say thank you to me for getting you down.”

Kitryn rolled his eyes. “Thank you,” he snapped out. he knew he sounded ungrateful, but his middle still hurt from hanging

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 3.1 by Carol Pedroso

Simon woke with a start, he was never going to get used to having the sun dictate when he slept. Not that he would actually call it sleeping. It was more like an enforced coma.

He sat up and looked around. He’s been moved to the back of the cave and had a blanket around him. Kitryn must have been responsible, Simon wasn’t sure how he felt about being so vulnerable in front of a stranger. Not that he’d had a lot of choices, but still.

One of the first things he noticed was the kits.

The SHeriff #43 (11.1) by Julie Lynn Hayes

“Hey man, you okay?”

Dustin glanced toward Marshall, reluctantly tearing his eyes away from Roy, who was manning the barbecue grill along with Lee. Well, to be more accurate, Lee was grilling and Roy was handing Lee whatever he needed.

Everything felt so surreal. Sitting in a lawn chair, next to Marshall, in Marshall and Lee’s backyard, sharing a meal with them like they were all the best of friends or something. Dinner had become lunch, because of Dustin having to work, at Lee’s insistence.  Tonight would be the night when—hopefully—they would catch Jordan in the act, and put him away for good, so he couldn’t hurt anyone ever again.

The Sheriff #42 (10.5) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Acting on an impulse he couldn’t explain, Roy leaned down and pressed a soft kiss to Dustin’s glowing backside. His skin was surprisingly smooth, and he began to pepper it with more kisses. He thought he heard Dustin moan in response. He kissed his other cheek, still thrusting both fingers inside of the younger man.

“How much more do you want me to stretch you?” he asked in between kisses.

“No more, Dustin said. “I’m ready. Please. Now.”

Denied: Chapter Eight by Cia Nordwell

“Yes. It’s all yours. You control who comes in. All you have to do is place your hand on the sensor and it will open.”

I looked at the pad inside the door. “From inside?”

“Yes, Cohen. You are not a prisoner on my ship, you’re a guest. It is probably best that you don’t wander around alone, since I don’t want you to get lost, but you’re not trapped here. If you wish to go out, just hit this button which will page the bridge. Someone is on duty at all times and can provide you with assistance.”
