My fic lives at my Archive of Our Own page. Some of its been posted here, too. But some hasn't, so AO3 is the best place to find most of it.

The majority of it is for Tamora Pierce (Tortall-verse) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The rest (right now) is Tamora Pierce (Emelan-verse), Angel, Firefly, Across the Universe, and Catherine Christian's retelling of Arthurian legend.

Sometimes I have Tamora Pierce fic (both universes) at the Goldenlake message board before I bother to archive it.

This is a new project of mine -- as long as I have a paid account here & can do voice posts, I thought I'd start using some of them to record podfic. Apologies for the unpolished nature of these recordings; I'm a writer, more than a performer, so I'm really just reading. My hope is that the fics I choose to read will speak for themselves, without the need for specialized voices or sound effects.

Also, please comment here if there's a particular story (mine, yours, or written by someone else who will give permission for me to record it) in one of my fandoms that you'd like to see as a podfic. I make no promises, but I would like to know what people are interested in.

Title: Man, Woman or Dancing Bear
Fandom: Emelan (Tamora Pierce)
Rating: PG
Length: 1000 words
Summary: One fall day, Tris and Little Bear make a new acquaintance: a man named Arthur, who also answers to Bear.

Note: There's that quasi-canon comment about Tris's future husband being a were-bear (but not in a literal sense). I thought that would be a fun thing to explore - and I am a literal minded person.

There's no breeze anywhere else. Are you a mage? )

Title: Wondering
Fandom: Emelan (Tamora Pierce)
Rating: PG
Length: 400 words
Summary: While fleeing Namorn, Daja and Sandry talk.

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

.... 'Cause I haven't done one in a while, and I have me some snazzy new icons. I'm gonna cheat & use more than one for some questions.

This question has been kicking around in my brain for a while: what makes certain things more fandom- and fanfic-ready than others? Why do we decide to fic the things we fic?

I can only answer for myself, of course. I'm interested in hearing whether the conclusions I reach apply to others, as well.

For me, a fic-friendly canon has to be or include three things: the characters have to be compelling, the universe has to be compelling, and the story has to be – or at least feel – incomplete.

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. )

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.

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.

Writing's not an ambition for me or anything like that. It's just something I do. But it's something I like. It's something I miss, badly, during the times I'm not doing it.

I've realized, lately, that my writing skills are a lot more limited than I'd like. Specifically, I have trouble with plot, I lack staying power, I don't finish what I start, I rarely bother to outline or plan, and I'm much better at fanfic than at creating original characters. Since I'm not going to stop writing, I might as well work on some of these things.

writing plans under the cut. )

You might notice there's no Buffy on that list. If you friended me based on shared interest in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I'll say right now that I won't be offended if you want to un-friend so as to not have all my stuff cluttering up your list. I'll probably still read and comment on your posts, though! I'm still a fan, I'm just... distracted.

As for this Smackdown thing... disorganized rambles under the cut. )

maybe I'd be better off saving my energy for Neal-or-Raoul and Buri? I just don't know.

Fight A

Fight H

opinions & made-up theories about all competitors under the cut. )
peroxidepirate: (kel/easy way)
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...
