Most of the tale he spun Nate had already figured out for himself. )

Title: Stand-Off
'Verse: BTVS/Leverage/SPN
Characters: Nate/Sophie
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1104
Warnings: None
Summary: Nate confronts Sophie about her refusal to give up trying to get him out of his deal with Crowley.
Author's Note: I recently put up an offer for a fic a day for the first twenty days of December. This is prompt #9, provided by [ profile] alinaandalion, who wanted Nate/Sophie angst, set in The Ties That Bind Job 'Verse. It is the first time anyone has ever requested a fic set in this bizarre little alternate Leverage setting that my daughter and I created, so I am both humbled and honored writing this one.

In the events of The Let's Make a Deal Job a deal Sophie made with a certain crossroads demon came due. In order to free her from that deal and save Eliot's life and Hardison's sanity, Nate bartered his own soul to Crowley for the demon to claim "at a time and place of his choosing". The catch is that if Nate or Faith (who witnessed the deal) discuss the terms with anyone but each other, the deal is void.

This story will likely be a scene from the upcoming "The Fall Asleep Job", where Nate confronts Sophie about helping Faith find a loophole in Crowley's terms. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy it Alina!

It wasn’t the first time Sophie had felt like her heart was breaking when it came to her relationship with Nate, but every time she was forced to confront the truth of his deal it felt like her world was coming unraveled around her and there wasn’t a thing she could do to stop it. )

Okay guys - what with the holidays and all, I fell down on pimping this award site to the degree that I should have, considering it's run by my darling [ profile] whiskyinmind.

Nominations for the Gotta Have Faith awards close tomorrow at midnight. Now here's where I'm going to sound horribly arrogant and needy for a second.

I've been nominated once, for "The Let's Make a Deal Job". I know I've never been a presence in Buffyverse fandom, but if there is one character I've written more in the last twelve months than any other, it's Faith. I've got probably over 100K worth of fic invested in this character - if you think any of that is worth nominating, please follow the link and say so!

(And believe it or not, I'm not looking to win anything - I just want to see my name up there on the list as more than just a co-author!)
