Tried to start writing this when TCR ended, but it didn't come together until just now.

Post-Report, "Stephen" is immortal. Snapshots of his relationship with Jon as The Daily Show ends too, and the years go by.

Title: #stimmy is real
Characters/Pairings: "Stephen"/Jimmy, Jimmy/Tina
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: See series Table of Contents.

Collected Tumblr posts from a universe where teen idols "Stephen" and Jimmy have a massive tinhatting fandom.

Written as a bonus for the boy band AU, but can also be read as a standalone one-shot.

Contains animated GIFs. All images feature the IRL adults; just pretend they're images of the same people/characters as teenagers, doing exactly the same things. A few quotes are directly from real-world Larry Stylinson shippers. See if you can guess which they are!

Cecil brings Carlos as his date to a family reunion. He can't wait to catch up with his journalist cousin Stephen, and he's sure Carlos will get along great with his scientist aunt Valerie.

A coda to Silent (the AU where Jon is deaf), which I've been meaning to write ever since I finished the story proper. Jon and Stephen's first time. (And it only took them a decade of best friendship to get there.)

As before, ASL is in italics, voiced speech is in quotation marks. Mirrored on the AO3.

Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: See series Table of Contents.

And we're back! With brand-new art of the band, from one of their newer and increasingly more suave photoshoots.

With their vacation over and their next album about to drop, the band is back to work, starting with a round of promotional events in New York City. You'd be surprised at how many ethical dilemmas can be packed into a couple of late-night talk show appearances (and one later-night raid on their suite's minibar).

Musical accompaniments: Stephen and Jimmy singing with Taylor Hicks; Stephen singing with Dolly Parton.

Jon's back from the Middle East!...and he came back wrong. As the embodiment of all that is American, it's up to Stephen to come to the rescue. The sexy, sexy rescue.

(On top of all the other innuendo in that clip, one of the things Stephen yells while behind the door actually is "Say you love me!" Ah, romance.)

For [community profile] queer_fest, prompt: Any fandom, any character, Being queer and mentally ill, and knowing the difference between the two. "Stephen" is (enthusiastically) functionally bi when he's manic, and has no sex drive at all when he's depressed. His wife and his best friend try to manage him through his moods, and everyone (even Stephen himself) is mostly guessing as to where his genuine attractions fall.

(I was all set to post this on time, thought I only had a few more paragraphs to write, and then I opened the file and it doubled in length on me. Oops.)

D/sverse, high school/college AU. Stephen's family doesn't believe in sending uncollared submissives to college, so Jon offers to collar him, at least through graduation. Cue a year of awkward deception, GSA shenanigans, platonic bed-sharing, one threatening incident with a certain pushy senior, and the triumph of the power of unrecognized romantic attraction friendship.

One of the shorter entries for my [community profile] longfic_bingo card, prompt "collar" or "pretend relationship". (This is Stephen's collar, by the way [source].)

**Note: I'm posting this in parts on the AO3, and will probably post the whole thing all in one entry on DW at the end. Sound good? Or are there people who would rather read in parts on DW? Let me know!

Stephen finally finds a way to let his Daily Show explode into its full potential. The only question is whether he can bring Jon along with him. And how much longer it's going to take him to invite Jon to make out, already.

Stephen's Daily Show goes through growing pains. Also, some literal pains, in the form of broken wrists and striking writers. At least it keeps picking up awards (for achievements in English and ASL both) along the way.

With the defining themes of the Bush administration becoming clear, the odd-couple symbiosis that drives The Daily Show with Stephen Colbert hits rocky ground. Oh, and the building is haunted. Because evidently our heroes can't catch a break.

(Just now figured out that our!Jon used legit ASL on TDS that one time. Very exciting.)

Alternate universe. In 1998, the staff of The Daily Show (including star correspondent Stephen Colbert) gets a new addition: deaf writer Jon Stewart. Cue an otherwise familiar blend of jokes, politics, a young series finding its feet, and a long-term intimate relationship starting to bloom.

For purposes of this story, ASL will be indicated by italics, spoken English by quotation marks, and typed English by being set off in various ways. There's a lot of cross-language communication in here, and it should be easier to follow if it's instantly apparent which lines can be understood by which subset of characters. Credit and thanks to ASLU (Lifeprint) for providing vocabulary and grammar.

Hey, remember when our intrepid heroes used to do tosses between shows? Have a ficlet based on the one in which Stephen makes New Year's Resolutions on Jon's behalf. It's even timely. (Just ignore the part where it's two years late.)

In which Jon has to get his act together or else, and this turns out to be a proper crossover rather than a setting AU after all.

Relevant to this fic: a cat cuddling with baby hedgehogs. And as some of you noticed, Stephen's Sentinel/Guide not-romance novels are straight out of early Sentinel fandom (yes, even the "gen" French kissing).

Sentinel Jon pulls his Guide's feelings back on track, so that Stephen can help him achieve greater sensory heights in their ongoing auxiliary police work. Now it's Jon's turn to have confusing feelings, and to drag the most important people in his life back and forth as he tries to balance them.

Working off a kink meme prompt: "A Sentinel/Guide AU (in a similar vein to Observations on Sentinels and Guides in Victorian London or Jeeves and the Uncommon Senses) where Sentinels and Guides are a normal part of life. "Stephen" is a Guide who has been repressing everything to do with empathy, and Jon is a Sentinel who Does Not Want that kind of responsibility. Naturally they bond pretty much at first sight and go on to become the most oddly-functioning couple ever."

Mirrored on the AO3.

( Any map site could have given him directions to The Hospital With All The Americans At It. Siri probably could have found it with her digital eyes closed. But Stephen had no use for map sites. He was following his gut. )
