Heads Up!

I was just reminded that International Day of Femslash is July 17, which is only three days away! It's exactly what it sounds like -- an excuse to flood fic and fanwork sites with f/f fics, art, and so on. [livejournal.com profile] femslash100  is hosting a drabblethon for the occasion, for anyone in a joining sort of mood. Me? I feel some Torchwood and Emelan drabbles coming on.
peroxidepirate: (reach your destiny)
Title: Wondering

Do we have to have this conversation? Daja thought. )

I'm not going to get stuffed back into a dress anytime soon... )

Title: Trickster's Pawn (part 1 of 2)
Rating: R
Length: about 3400 in this part; 5800 overall.
Fandom: Tamora Pierce, Tortall-verse (AU)
Characters: Keladry of Mindelan, Owen of Jesslaw. Also Iden, Warric and Buri
Summary: Kel's new friend, Wendy of Jesslaw, isn't exactly what she first seems.

Note: Like Fencing Lessons, this started as a crack!fic idea and became oddly serious. "What if Owen was actually a girl?" turned into a coming of age story about a transgendered character. I hope I handled it well.

I haven't posted a lot of fic directly to this journal lately. I'm posting this one because I want to write a commentary on it, which is more an LJ thing than an AO3 or King's Own thing.

Also note that I'm futzing with ages and Jesslaw family relations a little to fit the story.

Finally, this began life as a series of (closely connected) Smackdown ficlets, which results in some slightly odd chapter breaks.

Love? I could take it or leave it. But I don't want to be any man's wife. Ever. )


Part 2 of 2 is here.
Commentary on Part 1 is here.
peroxidepirate: (keladry)
In Round 1 of the Smackdown, I wrote 126 entries, which total approximately 18,560 words (according to Archive of Our Own, or slightly more according to Open Office). Almost exactly half of that -- 63 entries, and 8932 words -- was for the last set of fights (54 entries for Buri, 9 for Owen). Earlier, I wrote 23 for Uline, 22 for Neal, 16 for Sabine, and 1 each for Wyldon and Yuki.

For the sake of sanity, I've collected these 126 entries into 26 longer works, all of which are posted on AO3, here. Some of these are linked into series, which I hope will make them a little easier to follow.

Eventually I'll get these up on The King's Own, too, but for now, at least they're archived someplace.
peroxidepirate: (smackdown:Uline)
I wrote 24 Tortall-verse ficlets in the last week! Rather than post them all directly here, I decided to organize them on  AO3 and just provide links. (I do plan to just did put them up at Goldenlake's King's Own fan fiction archive as well.) Unless otherwise noted, these are all Kel/Uline, collections totaling 600 to 1200 words each, and rated T/PG-13. Also, I don't own any of these characters or settings, I'm just playing, transformative works, etc.

Knightly Virtues: Uline of Hannalof made a point of seeking out Page Keladry of Mindelan to offer encouragement and support. What if there was more to it than that? Series of seven ficlets set just after Kel and Uline meet for the first time.

One Small Change: AU in which Alanna's true identity was never publicly revealed. It seems like a small change, but twenty years later, Kel's life is very different as a result. Includes 4 Kel/Uline ficlets, and my lone Kel/Wyldon entry. This AU may show up in my future Smackdown entries, or it could become a series in its own right (depending on whether I can get that Firefly Big Bang done early).

Larger Than Life (R, 120 words): Short, immediate angst. From the outside looking in, Kel can do anything. But even the strongest have demons their loved ones don't always see. (Warning for possibly-triggery depression.)

At Fief Hannalof (R): Kel goes visiting. Six ficlets based on the quasi-canon fact (author-confirmed, but not in an actual book) that Kel's sister married one of Uline's relatives.

Random Ficlets: Mostly fluff, which didn't fit into any of the above. Includes "More than Pretty," in which the Royal Ladies are as useful as they are decorative; "Joining Forces," in which Kel is outnumbered by Uline and Alanna; and 3 other pieces.

For any Tamora Pierce fans who don't know, Goldenlake is hosting a Fanfic Smackdown during the next two months. Sixteen characters -- seven female, nine male -- are competing for the hand and heart of Lady Knight Keladry of Mindelan (protagonist of the Protector of the Small books, and the inspiration for my icon, here). See the guidelines for details.

Fics from drabble-length up are eligible, as long as they haven't been posted somewhere before -- each posted fic that deals with the relationship between Kel and a contestant character counts as one point for that contestant. So please join us if you ship Kel with: Alanna of Pirate's Swoop and Olau, Baird of Queenscove, Buri Tourakom, Domitan of Masbolle, Faleron of King's Reach, Joren of Stone Mountain, Lalasa Isran, Nealan of Queenscove, Owen of Jesslaw, Raoul of Goldenlake and Malorie's Peak, Rikash Moonsword, Sabine of Macayhill, Uline of Hannalof, Vania of Conte, Wyldon of Cavall, and/or Yukimi noh Daiomoru.... or if you previously didn't, but think you could.

The first contest pits Uline of Hannalof against Alanna of Pirate's Swoop and Olau in one arena, and Wyldon of Cavall against Domitan of Masbolle in the other.

Schedule, and my COMPLETELY unbiased opinions, under the cut. )

Just realized I don't have a "het" tag yet. Ok, now I do, I'll see if I can remember to start using it...

Title: Protectress
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Tamora Pierce (Tortall universe)
Characters: Buri/Thayet
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters, their universe, or anything else of value. This is a derivative work and I'm just playing.
Summary: Buri promised to protect her princess. That's not as simple as she thought.
Author's Notes: Written for Goldenlake's Secrets & Lies Week (January 2010). Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] faketoysoldier  and Carmarthen for getting me thinking about these two again.

(I'll protect you until the day I die.) )

I have so much to say, in terms of fandom stuff, and I don't have time for all of it now. So, in five twenty minutes...

First I have to rec the Yuletide story I received: It's Beautiful and So Are You, by mjules. Under the cut: Across The Universe, a retelling of Athurian legend, and Chicago the movie. )Fourth, I'm not doing the whole recs-post thing after all. But I did bookmark a bunch of stuff I liked, so if anyone's interested, it's here. In a nutshell, it's mostly classic film slash, kids' lit femslash, sci-fi novel happy endings, everything I could find based on the Diana Wynne Jones books I've read (because there are still some I haven't), and Futurama & How I Met Your Mother crack!fic (not like the shows themselves aren't/weren't cracky all the time anyway).

I think that covers it. Happy New Year!
peroxidepirate: (fandom slut)
Today was my day off, and I spent an insanely large part of it copying fics over to AO3, then futzing around with tags, ratings, formatting & so on. I believe that I've now archived all the stories I've posted, anywhere, since I got re-involved in online fandom earlier this year. Except one, which I'm clearly not going to finish & I decided I don't like that much anyway. (Oh yeah, I'm PeroxidePirate there, too.)

buncha stats + link to a brand new Firefly fic under the cut! )

I had some other thoughts on Yuletide (I'm stuck! Meep!) and Real Life (dogs + rain =/= fun; bleached-blond hair "temporarily" dyed black = Big Adventures in Coloration)... but, again, need to do something else with the rest of my evening. Like fix the hair color. Or focus on the new source material that's going to save my butt in the Yuletide exchange. But we'll see.
