"Keep Moving"

Title: "Keep Moving"

Characters: Joel & Ellie
Prompt: none!
Word Count: 2346
Rating: PG-13
Summary: "I would kill for something to eat right now" can be taken literally in the TLoU 'verse...
Author's Notes: While working on a scene for an upcoming chapter in my long fic, I created a memory for Ellie to think about, and I thought, "Hey that would've been fun to do as a one-shot." And then suddenly the words poured out! This takes place between the in-game events of Winter and Spring.

Title: "Comforting Sounds" Chapter 3: "Nightswimming" (3/17)
Fandom: The Last of Us
Characters: Ellie, Joel, Tommy, Maria, OCs
Pairings: Ellie/OC
Warnings: PLEASE SEE NOTES ABOUT WARNINGS IN FIRST CHAPTER
Word Count for this chapter: 6268
Rating (for fic as a whole): R
Author's Notes: Chapter title from the R.E.M. song.

I feel the need to mention that although this is a WIP, I wrote the "skeleton" of it (more than an outline, less than a first draft) in its entirety before I began posting the story here -- before the Part 2 trailer was released. Thus, any similarities to the trailer are coincidental, any differences are unintentional.

WARNINGS for this chapter: Sexual assault/rape, and other violence. This chapter has a major shift in tone. The second half was difficult for me to write (I even gave myself a quasi-nightmare, writing the first draft). I tried not to be overly graphic, but it's still just awful. You may want to have some fluff on hand to wash it down with. Please don't hate me.

Title: "Cargo Limits"
Fandom: The Last of Us

Summary: Some decisions about how much to carry are easy; the others are best not to think about. Takes place in fall, at the university -- a "deleted scene," if you will, right before the horrible part.
