wtf?  They only needed two entries on the com.  I didn't add that much editing.  >.>

Part 1 | Part 2

"Alright, Avengers. You've been dancing for three and a half months now. Which means it's time to put your skills to the test!" )
A Solid Connection
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I do not own the Avengers movie-verse, nor do I make any claim to.
Characters: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, Thor, Pepper Potts.
Warnings: While this is not a story about depression, it is a part of one of the characters in this story. Also, some mentions of past drug use and dancing as life lessons.
Rating: PG-13
Summary:  Tony sets up team bonding night with dance lessons. If only Steve didn't have so many issues with dancing...
Thanks: Many thanks as always to narwhale_callin, who was the only person who understood the jokes on 'Victor' and Lizzie's names for the anon version.  At least someone got it and laughed over them, even if it's only my beta.  <3
Notes: This was originally written for [livejournal.com profile] kahn for the Cap-IM Fic Exchange.  The prompt was "Tony and Steve, dancing" and a more general request for team-as-family.  This may have gone overboard with the latter, but hey.  A few things before we start though.

One, Lizzie (Casey in the original posting), 'Victor' (Theodore in the original posting.  Yeah, I totally named him that just to call him Teddy.  XD ), and his gentleman friend all come from another set of fics of mine, It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing.  You do not have to read those fics to understand this one.  Technically, Lizzie is the only OC here (and I sadly couldn't go into her as much as I wanted to since it was an anon posting and a gift fic), with 'Victor' being the Master in disguise from Doctor Who and his gentleman friend being the Third Doctor.  If you are unfamiliar with Who though, no worries.  You don't need to know anything about them and there's no complicated back story for either of them.  I just couldn't resist bringing Lizzie and the Master back for more dancing adventures across time and space, and you can read them like you would most normal OC's.  Just realize only Lizzie is actually mine.

Two, a note on the dance. West Coast Swing is not the swing dance you are thinking of. If you thought Grease and other movies of the sort, you're thinking either East Coast Swing or Jitterbug, or a dance along those lines. West Coast Swing is a completely different dance. If you would like to see what it looks like, look up West Coast Swing on youtube. If you'd like a place to start, here's two videos of Jack and Jill competitions. Jack and Jill basically means you have no idea who your partner is or what music you'll be dancing to until your name gets called and they start the music. There's no choreography and it's all improv, which is what you'd see if you went out to a Westie club. Well, a Westie club that pro dancers are at. Anyway, have a more technical dance video ( http://youtu.be/Y3i6kyLLB2g ) and one video to show the versatility of WCS with music ( http://youtu.be/W1DUvrbrp7U?t=1m11s ).

Three, this mostly came about because while there are some good 'teach Steve to dance' fics out there, none of them quite satisfied the dancer in me.  This was probably an inevitable fic.  Kahn just gave me proper excuse to write it.

Last of all, please enjoy the fic!

Steve Rogers looked down at his book, trying - and failing - to make sense of the words. )
So [livejournal.com profile] nemaline was playing around with The Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test.  I asked her what she was talking about and she linked me, then I decided to run Lizzie Mathews through it to see if she passes.  XD  Here's how she held up.


So many of the questions didn't apply to her at all... )
First of all, Merry Christmas, everyone!  I hope the holidays find  you well.  In the words of Cyndi Lauper, "I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Oh, and by the way, have a nice life."  <3

Fickle Fortune
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who, nor do I make any claim to.
Summary: The Master learns the hard way that luck does indeed have everything to do with competition dancing.
Characters: Delgado Master, Lizzie Matthews (not Borden...  XD)
Warnings: Lots of dancing and themes of suicide in the last bit.
Rating: PG-13 for the suicide themes
Notes: So I wrote this sequel to Lead and Follow, even though it didn't really need it.  Technically, it's not a sequel, since it takes place during the original fic, but still.  Normally, I wouldn't write a sequel just to have more of an OC, but people apparently wanted more.  Also, I've never actually been to Swing Diego, so all the convention bits are based off my memories of Dallas D.A.N.C.E. instead. 
Thanks: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin for betaing.  Hopefully, he is Sailor Moon villain-ish enough for you.
Dedication: For [livejournal.com profile] _rubber_chicken and Allonym, who both wanted more Lizzie.  You now have more Lizzie and Master dance adventures across time and space.

The Master was not overly impressed with this "Swing Diego" that Lizzie kept on about. )

Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who, nor do I make any claim to.  
Characters: Third Doctor/Delgado Master, Eighth Doctor, OC
Warnings:  The Master regains his dignity and more dancing.
Original Prompt: Three, Five, Eight or Eleven  Ballroom dancing.
Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] best_enemies anon meme.  Sadly, it's not actual ballroom dancing.  This is far more social dancing than ballroom, since it's West Coast Swing, but I'm a Westie more than a ballroom dancer.  Also, it's more of the Master learning to social dance than the Doctor dancing (though most of the fic is leading up to their big dance), but the Master had A Plot and who was I to argue with that?

There is an OC featured rather heavily in this fic.  This is largely because the Master kept insisting he needed a pretty, young thing to make the Doctor jealous with.  Hopefully, you'll enjoy her half as much as I enjoyed not having to keep a character from sounding like a valley girl.  XD 
Thanks:  Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin for the beta, even if you did want me to cut big portions of what I've written.  Although, it still apparently can't fit into one lj post.  -_-;;;  Also, sadly, she's still Lizzie Matthews.  <3
"Miss Matthews, may I have a word?" )
Lead and Follow
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who, nor do I make any claim to. 
Characters: Third Doctor/Delgado Master, Eighth Doctor, OC
Warnings:  Lots of dancing and the Master's dignity takes a bit of a beating, but it's all in good fun.
Original Prompt: Three, Five, Eight or Eleven  Ballroom dancing.
Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] best_enemies anon meme.  Sadly, it's not actual ballroom dancing.  This is far more social dancing than ballroom, since it's West Coast Swing, but I'm a Westie more than a ballroom dancer.  Also, it's more of the Master learning to social dance than the Doctor dancing (though most of the fic is leading up to their big dance), but the Master had A Plot and who was I to argue with that?

Also, a note about West Coast Swing:  This is not the swing dance you're probably thinking of.  When you watch movies like Grease, you're seeing Jitterbug and East Coast Swing, which is a completely different dance.  West Coast is a lot smoother and done to more jazz and pop music.  It's also sexier.  <3

The Master sipped his brandy, watching the Doctor dance. )
