24Mermaidens » "Meet Leslie Johnson, mermaid." John blinked in confusion. Surely Finch was using some obscure literary reference, or perhaps making a pun. It was too early in the day for wordplay. Team Machine's latest number is a mermaid! Careese, especially in later chapters.

22 Root Access » "She wanted you to *what*?" Shaw said around a mouthful of eggs. Or, Root has submissive fantasies and a wireless toy. All she's missing is somebody to hold the remote. Too bad she's so bad at asking for things...and the control issues don't help either. Takes place a month or three after "Wireless". Established Shaw/Elizabeth, Shaw/Root, slow Root/Elizabeth. It's complicated...

4 Do No Harm » An AU in which Shaw is not a doctor, Elizabeth exhibits very poor decision making skills, and both of them are driving Dr. Tillman up the wall. Total crackfic. More chapters to come.

8 Lens Cap » Shaw helps Elizabeth Ruben cope with her crippling fear of the dark using a silken blindfold and patient intimacy. Fluffy, snarky, and smutty. Shaw/Elizabeth. Some power play, roleplaying, and switching (roles). Complete! A tie-in to the Protocols universe, and probably will fit neatly with Feature Creep when the main story catches up.

55 Wireless » Elizabeth Ruben made a bet with Shaw-and lost. "Winner gets to pick what the loser wears for a day." It had sounded so harmless! Surely, Elizabeth reasoned, it would be something simple, if not ludicrous-a sombrero, maybe, or lurid legwarmers. Elizabeth really hadn't expecting a wireless toy...especially not with Shaw holding the remote. It was going to be one VERY long day...

96 Protocols » Elizabeth Ruben would've been a corpse, would've never been found in that shipping container, if it weren't for a guardian angel she didn't even knew she had. AU. (Donnelly is alive and will be around in sequel.) Social commentary on themes in the show. (PTSD, hacking ethics and computer technology.) Realistic technobable by a geek. Shaw is around too.
