Characters/Pairing: Robert Lewis/James Hathaway
Genre: supernatural elements
Warnings: Dubcon (not committed by either of our boys). Highlight to see details: The dub!con tag is there because Robbie has erotic dreams about James, who he secretly desires. The dreams are caused by an incubus (sex demon). The dream-sex is not very explicit.
Summary: Dreams can come true... but that's not necessarily a good thing.
A/N: My thanks to wendymr for the speedy, last-minute beta.
Read it on A03.
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway & Robert Lewis
Rating: Teen and up
Wordcount: 1251 by AO3's count
Warnings: In the words of AO3 no archive warnings apply, but there is a very briefly described scene where a predator eats a deer and some very vague, brief mention of suicidal thoughts by one of the characters
Summary: It's been a part of James' life for a long time now and no-one has found out, yet...
Read it on AO3
Author: Fictionwriter (margaret_r)
Warnings: Supernatural theme
Summary: “Tell me again, sir, why we are here.”

Summary: When Hathaway starts making questionable desicions, he gets firm advice from an unlikely source.
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway/Robbie Lewis
Summary: “They’re not dragons,” James continues, filling the time with obscure facts as only he can. “Dragon is a mistranslation of the Icelandic draugur. It means ghost, not dragon. Much more appropriate if you ask me.”
Draugur on Ao3
Characters/Pairing: Author would prefer not to reveal anything James Hathaway, Laura Hobson, mentions of James Hathaway/Robert Lewis and Laura Hobson/Robert Lewis
Warnings: Author chooses not to use warnings Helpless situation, ambiguous ending
Summary: Three days, as near as he can guess from counting his own heartbeats and estimating how long he’s spent unconscious. Three days in total darkness, in complete silence and absolute isolation. It’s no wonder he’s losing his mind.
With huge thanks to my wonderful beta owlbsurfinbird.

( The Monthly MeetingCollapse )
Fright Fest posting starts tomorrow! There is one thing to check before posting though: are you a community member? If not, you cannot post! Please join and then we can open your posting access!
Please adhere to these posting guidelines as we will ask you to edit your posts if this is not the case.
Q: When can I post my fanwork?
A: From Sat 29/10 to end of Mon 31/10
Q: Where can I post my fanwork?
A: Anywhere you like as long as you post here on your dedicated posting date with a link to the fanwork and provide appropriate header information.
Q: I want to post my fanwork directly to this community, not just link to it. Can I do that?
A: Yes. However, if you are posting directly to the community, please remember to place all fanworks under a cut. Things outside the cut should only include header information, and any 'teaser' quotes/small graphics.
Q: Hold on, it sounds like you're saying I can't post my 200 icons/wallpaper/other large item outside a cut.
A: Yeah, that's exactly what we're saying. Please exercise common sense and consideration and place any large items under a cut/behind a link. You can include up to three icons as a sample or a small thumbnail graphic as a teaser.
Q: How about that header information you mentioned?
Header information for fic:
Rating: The two systems typically used for fanfics are the MPAA and Fiction Ratings and lately also the AO3 rating system, any of those is fine.
Warnings: As per standard fandom practice, things that you must warn for include character death, rape/non-con, under-age sex, graphic violence, specific sexual kinks and anything else you think might be triggering/offensive/problematic. If you want to preserve the surprise, you can always hide the warning, see the textbox below for coding. Alternatively you can use the AO3 declaration of 'author chose not to provide warnings'. Do not be a numpty and warn for slash or het as neither are things that need warning for and the 'Pairing' information should tell the reader everything they need to know about that.
Feel free to also include e.g. Genre (e.g. AU/case fic/romance/pwp), a standard disclaimer or any additional author notes.
Header information for non-fic fanworks:
Feel free to adapt the fic header to suit your needs. Warnings, if applicable, must be included.
Q: How do I hide a warning that is also a spoiler?
A: Use the coding in the textbox below:
Q: I still have questions!
A: This is why the gods of LJ created the comment function, ask away!
HAPPY POSTING EVERYONE!
Dearest spirits, ghouls, and other denizens of the other realms!
This is to remind you that Lewis Fright Fest 2016 sign-ups CLOSE TOMORROW FRI 7TH OF OCT!
Have you signed up yet? If not, creep, float, scuttle and shimmer on over here to do so asap!
Yours in spine-tingling anticipation,
Sign up for the challenge here
In comments of this post, leave prompts for the Lewis Fright Fest 2016.
Subject: Art, Hobson/Lewis
Prompt: Vampires and blood
Subject: Fic, Gen or Hathaway/Lewis, Warning: non-con, violence
Prompt: I would like fic where Hathaway is kidnapped and... *this is where I might go into detail about all the nasty, awful things I'd like to see done to Hathaway*
This post is solely to find inspiration or leave your unwanted plot bunnies and express your deepest fannish wishes. However, remember to keep all prompts to the theme!
What's the theme then? Anything Samhain/All Hallows' Eve/Halloween appropriate, so think horror, supernatural, fantasy, thriller, death, religion (old and new), anything otherworldly... So that fic about Lewis and Hathaway buying curtains together would not fit, unless the house they buy them for is haunted or they plan to use the curtains to wrap the bodies of their victims in... You get the picture :D
There is no need to 'reserve' a prompt for yourself (though feel free to comment on each other's prompts, the prompter will undoubtedly be thrilled to know if you're considering their idea or even agree that it's the best ever). More than one person can use the same prompt as inspiration. Similarly, no one is obligated to use the prompts here.
Play nice. There will be no mocking/insulting of each others' prompts/pairings or exclamations of disgust/horror. Your kinks are not everyone else's kinks and vice versa, be respectful. Or else.
Finally, have fun. There is no limit to how many prompts you can post so go wild, people!
What kind of fanworks can I create? Anything at all! Fic, art, graphics, mixes, vids, crafts...
What's the minimum contribution? There isn't one! Create as little or lot as you want. The only rule is that it much fit the theme!
What kind of time limits are we talking about?
Sign-Ups: 3 Oct - 7 Oct 2016
Works must be ready and posted: During the three day period of Sun 30 of October to Tue 1 of November 2016.
Prompt post: We have set up one for people to post theme appropriate prompts or fannish wishes to provide inspiration.
Beta post: the existing beta post always accepts more people offering or requesting beta services, please feel free to use it.
And finally, HOW TO SIGN UP:
To sign-up for the Lewis Fright Fest 2016, please comment with the following information.
· Contact email: We’ll only use this if you disappear and don’t comment on the ‘check-in’ posts closer to deadline
· Creative output: i.e. What are you planning on doing: We would like at least some idea of what you're planning on. This could be as vague or as detailed as you'd like.
That's it. Easy as anything. Do consider signing-up and please pimp the challenge.
Dearest Lewis Fen,
It's about a month before Halloween/Samhain/All Hallows. Over the last few year's it's been a tradition to run a Lewis Fright Fest that invites you to create something thematically appropriate for the holiday(s). We would like to know if you are still interested in participating in that before we set things up. Thusly, a poll
Would you like to participate in Lewis Fright Fest this year?
Please let us know whether it is worth running Fright Fest this year!
We would like to extend our warmest thanks to all participants (and those who supported them through betas, feedback and cheerleading) for making Lewis Summer Challenge 2016 such a great experience. As always, modding challenges for the Lewis Fen is a pleasure so thank you all for being so awesome! If you have any comments, suggestions or feedback, please don't hesitate to drop us a comment.

“What’s that, then? We have a new case?” Robbie bends down, bracing his forearm on the back of James’s chair to lean in close and peer at the computer screen. The scent of early morning James—coffee, cigarette smoke, croissant—washes over him.
“They’re bronze statues. A research team at Cambridge believes they’re by Michelangelo.” James scrolls back up through the story, past the couple of small photos to a large photo of two statues. “He’s the artist who painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel,” he adds.
“I may not have the benefit of a Cambridge education, Inspector,” Robbie responds testily, “but I know who Michelangelo is.”
James tilts his big head back and grins up at Robbie. Even partially upside down, his expression is cheeky, bluegreen eyes crackling with mischief.

Characters: Robbie Lewis & James Hathaway
Genre: Vampire AU
Warnings: Some blood, as to be expected in a vampire AU, but it's not excessive. One possible trigger moment, warning for which would be a significant spoiler, so there's a warning about it in the notes at the end of the fic, for those who want to know.
Summary: Even seemingly catastrophic experiences can be transformed by another person's kindness . . .
“Though sympathy alone can't alter facts, it can help to make them more bearable.”
― Dracula, Bram Stoker
Thanks to lindenharp, for her encouraging and helpful feedback. As ever, all muddles and misplaced punctuation are mine and mine alone.

Title: Fatherly love?
Characters/Pairing:none but you can add slash goggles if you like.
Warnings: Abuse past and present, oh and there is nudity.
Summary: Once Robbie and Laura leave for New Zealand the fragile relationships James has started to build with his family begin to crumble. How long will it take before Robbie realises and what will he do about it?
Summary: “Sir,” Hathaway’s voice seemed faint, “as much as I’d like to be an inspector, I have no desire to climb over your dead body to do so.” Hathaway’s hand grasped his shoulder, sliding up to the juncture of his neck and shoulder, his thumb brushing against Robbie’s collarbone. His voice was soft, gentle: “Are you all right?”
