brimstone fan fiction

Brimstone captured me from the get-go and certainly didn't deserve to be canceled after what not even amounted to a full first season. Ezekiel Stone was a deeply torn character, drawn to his past life and widow, Rosalyn, attracted to while aware that meeting her again would only put her in peril, happy to be back on earth and broken up over having to stay at the fringes of life due to the fact that he was strictly speaking not exactly alive. He'd lost out on 15 years and the subsequent changes in history and culture and knew that the devil would never grant him the time to catch up - after all, his boss already criticized him for eating and sleeping. Still, he never gave up and tried to hang onto the remnants of life - while strangely enough the devil never really punished him for doing so. It always felt rather like the devil liked to play games with or make fun of him and found him immensely entertaining. He always stood in his personal space, even showed up in bed next to him and liked to banter in a way that others would consider flirting. Slashy? As hell.



The main pairing on this page is
Ezekiel Stone / The Devil.

Summary: The devil has released Ezekiel Stone from his service prematurely, but Zeke is still drawn to his former employer and cannot seem to return to his former life.
Review: I absolutely adore elfin's way of portraying Lucifer as more than simply the ruler of hell. Even on the show, there has always been a strange rapport between the devil and Stone, and all she's doing is explore said rapport even further. Stone knows who - and what - the devil is, and yet is drawn to a side of him he'd only suspected so far: vulnerability and emotions that seem out of character, and yet fit so very well. elfin is also very gifted in presenting original scenarios in Stone's hunt for the escaped 113 damned souls and makes me secretly wish that the show had continued and gone into the very same direction. Lovely.

Title: Stone, Solitaire Story Length: ~ 46 KB

Pairing: Ezekiel Stone / The Devil Time Frame:
Genres: Action/Adventure, Supernatural Recommended: 06 Sep 2001
Summary: Zeke's on his own. Can he track down one of the hundred and thirteen without any help and without getting distracted by thinking about what happened on Friday night?
Review: Polly Hammer also is very gifted at capturing the emotional side of the devil - she gives him a feeling of sadness that captures your heart. Lucifer might be the Prince of Lies, but he has an emotional attachment to Stone that stays his hand before he manages to break his servant. I just wish Polly had written another sequel and explored the ramifications on the inescapable day Stone's job on earth is finished.

Title: Forbidden Fruit offsite Story Length: ~ 54 KB
Series: none Rating: NC-17
Category: Slash Warnings: violence
Pairing: Ezekiel Stone / The Devil Time Frame: Post-Season 1
Genres: Action/Adventure, Drama Recommended: 06 Apr 2006
Summary: During the hunt for a serial killer, Stone receives more help from his employer than he'd have ever expected.
Review: I will always regret that Varsha doesn't seem to have written more than two stories in the Brimstone fandom. Her devil remains the ruler of hell, but a more vulnerable side of his still manages to shine through - he cares for Stone, as unexpected and unwelcome as it might be, and he's stretching the rules a bit in order to help him get the next of the 113 souls still at large. The last few paragraphs are the bittersweet pinnacle of an already exemplary story and the final proof that this is - and remains - my all-time favorite.
