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.

The full schedule for Round 1 is below. Characters I'm backing are in purple (and yes, there are a couple of fights where I'm enthusiastically backing both, and one where I'm not particularly backing anybody).

As the competition moves along, I'll be posting fic recs and mini-essays on why I'm supporting certain characters. Once each fight is over, I'll re-post anything I've written for it.

And I can say it here, on my journal, without feeling (quite so much) like a heel:  I'm so disappointed that my Aly didn't get in! ::pouts:: But, then again, I'll probably have more fun splitting my energy between a bunch of different contestants. And I'll be less likely to be brokenhearted if "my" contestant doesn't win. So it's all for the best, I'm sure.

May the best ship win!

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...

Wow we are on the opposing sides for a lot of fights! No chance you'd be willing to switch to support Vania or Baird?

Vania, maaaaybe. I'm not opposed to the pairing. But I like Lalasa, too, and Vania is the Goldenlake fan favorite, so I may have to support the underdog. I'm pretty sure Vania will win without me, so we'll see who she's up against in round 2.

Baird? Sorry, but no. I'm getting all nostalgic about the days when I used to ship Kel/Owen! And he's Neal's dad... it just doesn't work for me. But, maybe I'll read something that will convince me.
