Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fiction
---------------------------------------------

FANFICTION:

General Disclaimer: These stories are based on characters and situations created and owned by other people and corporations. I make no money from this borrowing of intellectual property, and intend no copyright or trademark infringement.

Organization: This list is organized primarily by fandom; within each fandom, it's arranged first by associated story cycles and then by date. Word counts and writing dates are approximations.

Warning Policy: Any story with explicit sex or other potentially problematic content (mostly death, torture, or various forms of psychological, familial, or societal dysfunction) will be marked as such; otherwise all stories are equivalent to PG-13 at most -- i.e., there may be some darkness, violence, or mentions of sex, but it will either be off-page or non-explicit. I do not use any content rating system unless I am posting to a site or community that requires or encourages ratings, because I think movie-style ratings are counterintuitive when applied to written fiction, and because I have never found ratings particularly useful for anything other than denoting the presence of explicit sex, which I am already warning for.

Quality Rating System: I've marked my favorite stories with asterisks, on a scale of 1 to 4. The more asterisks, the more I like the story. This doesn't necessarily mean that stories without asterisks are bad, just that I don't like them as much. Also, I am not claiming to be an arbiter of taste; you may love stories I dislike, and vice versa. I am just providing a heads-up about the ones that I think are best written and/or most interesting.

Where To Read: What I post on my journal tends to be the equivalent of a beta draft. If I have cross-posted a story literally anywhere else, read the version that isn't on my journal. Versions on AO3 are definitive. If there is no AO3 version, read the ff.net version. If there is no ff.net version, read the FictionAlley version (only applicable for HP fic). Failing that, read the journal version, because that's the only one there is.

And just for my own reference: my Cotton Candy Bingo cards, for Round One and Round Two.

Hey everyone! Remix Redux 12 is live, and I would like to make you aware of my gift!

Skies of Summer (Dare to Hope Remix): Ariadne seems to have an innate talent for building in dreams, but Arthur knows there are other virtues she'll need to be truly successful. (2,600 words)

This is based on Skies of Summer, a Cotton Candy Bingo fill I wrote last year. It's an Ariadne & Arthur friendship fic, and also a little exploration into the practicalities of building a convincing and stable dreamworld. The remix shifts into Arthur's POV to show that he's studying Ariadne as much as she's studying him, and also details the picnic dream that I skipped over in my own fic.

Go read it; it's lovely! ♥♥♥

And here are some individual pepper plants! The first is the poor plant that got hit most dramatically by the leaf blight I mentioned in my previous post. (Don't worry; it survived!)

The second is the biggest and healthiest of my first batch of peppers, gearing itself up to bloom. I fully expect blossoms by next weekend. :D

Then we have my two problem children, both of which failed to properly split their seed coats back when they first pushed up through the dirt. I rescued the first, but accidentally halved its cotyledons in the process and the resulting shock (and loss of photosynthetic power, since the mutilated cotyledons did not grow much past their initial size) slowed its subsequent development by about two weeks. Also, it kind of sprawled outward rather than aiming upward once it finally started to grow again. Hopefully fresh air and 360-degree sunlight will agree with it.

The second problem child had defective cotyledons that failed to separate. Since the stem and true leaves are supposed to grow from BETWEEN the cotyledons, this presented it with a bit of a conundrum. After some heavy thought, it sprouted a single leaf at a sideways angle, and now, after another bout of heavy problem-solving, it's finally sprouting a pair of true leaves off the side of that first leaf -- that's the little blurry green blotch in the center of the V-shape made by the stems -- and ignoring the cotyledons as a bad path. I am cheering it on!

And HERE IS THE LINK TO THE PICTURES, yay!

It's been... uh... two months since I posted any pepper pictures? Wow. Where DOES the time go?

Anyway, I repotted my first batch about three weeks ago (except for the one that couldn't break its own seed case and whose cotyledons I accidentally cut in half while freeing it) and moved them out onto my back porch. They suffered some kind of leaf blight in their first week outdoors, but I sprayed them with a general purpose insecticide/miticide/fungicide and they're all doing better now, though obviously the ones least affected by the blight are bigger and more mature than their compatriots.

In fact, a couple of them already have buds and I expect flowers by next weekend. Closeups to follow in my next post!

The second and third batches of peppers didn't grow quite as vibrantly as the first batch, which I think is because they were in smaller seedling pots and had no room to stretch their roots. But today I got around to transplanting them as well, including the pepper with the mutilated cotyledons and the one whose cotyledons failed to separate properly. I spritzed them all very lightly with insecticide, which I fully expect to get washed away by Saturday's predicted rain, but maybe that will stave off the leaf blight issue for this cohort.

Okay, so, you probably noticed there are no actual pictures in this post! That is because I'm tired of my embedded image links breaking EVERY TIME Tumblr does some kind of "upgrade," so from now on I'm just going to link to the relevant Tumblr post that contains the photos.

Which in this case is THIS POST RIGHT HERE. Click on the photos to embiggen them. :-)

I had the weirdest dream last night.

I think it's because of my NFE signup, in which I said, among other things, that I would prefer not to write any Pevensie/Caspian ships (because none of them make any sense to me) and also requested a story about Polly and Digory post-MN, and somehow this all got tangled up with the Problem of Susan and turned into a massive THING where Polly and Digory accidentally left one of their Ring sets in Narnia and Disney!Caspian found them and used them to travel secretly to England where he got involved with the Malfoys (??? idk, what even) and kept kidnapping Susan into creepy stalker pseudo-romantic dinners at expensive exotic hotels and then getting Lucius Malfoy to Obliviate her so she couldn't tell her family what was going on, but while she didn't consciously remember anything she SUBCONSCIOUSLY began to associate Narnia with el creepo stalker probably-gonna-rape-her-eventually!Caspian and THAT'S why she turned away.

I don't know how the hell this fit into the timeline, since it would have to happen simultaneously before and after SC, nor do I know how it would have resolved because my alarm went off and I woke up just as Caspian was climbing the steps of a really blinged-out glass pyramid to consult with some ~mysterious evil power~ about Susan's continued resistance to his ~charms~ and what to do about the growing restlessness among his people who were kind of pissed off at the way he kept raising taxes to pay for those expensive hotels and stuff.

*hands*

My brain, gentle readers. It is a strange place.

Summary: After the revolution, Karkat is assigned to a special forces training team with Terezi Pyrope and Dave Strider. He'd never admit it, but they might be the least bad of his possible options. (They might even agree.) [3,400 words]

Note: There's a reason I call these three 'Team Damaged Goods,' and it's not because they had idyllic childhoods. Terezi's past is explained in Narutostuck: Set with Stars, but Dave and Karkat are equally screwed up in their own ways: Dave because he has what could be a first-generation kekkai genkai related to time manipulation and was thus the subject of intense experimentation, and Karkat because he's the genetic double of the Sufferer and was thus used as a combination of hostage and indoctrinated propaganda piece. Nothing terrible happens to anyone during this fic, but Karkat does think about their pasts and there's a brief description of Terezi's ruined eyes and what happened to them.

I don't think anything in this story is worse than the canonical darkness in either Homestuck or Naruto, but you are the best judge of your own boundaries. :-)

[ETA: The ever-so-slightly revised final version is now up on AO3!]

HA. It took me three-plus years and a lot of angst to write that story, but it is DONE. *dusts hands*

(If you have suggestions for improving anything, I am all ears, since I freely acknowledge I lost perspective on this fic somewhere back in 2013.)

Hi, and thank you in advance for writing a story for me! I'm pretty easy to please -- unless you write a context-free sex scene, I'll be thrilled just to get a response to one of my prompts. *grin* But I realize that's not terribly helpful, so here's the (very!) long version. (I am sorry for the tl;dr, but I like to talk about things I love and I figure more details are better than fewer.)

Three tiny and mostly translucent baby spiders just para-sailed into my face.

Yep. That time of year again. *sigh*

(They are now squished and dead, for the record. My treaty with the spiders that share my apartment only holds so long as they refrain from physical contact and also don't startle me while I'm taking a shower. If they get into places I don't want them, I will do my best to live trap them and release them onto the porch (or the foyer or maybe the top of a bookcase in my front room during the depths of winter, because I'm not completely heartless), but I have a very strong KILL IT WITH FIRE!!! reaction to small many-legged creatures that touch my skin, and I'm not going to lose sleep over a handful of what is clearly a large and thriving hatchling cohort every damn year.)

After procrastinating for half of forever, I wrote and posted my remix today. I played around with using one or two different source ficlets -- to the point where I now have two nebulous "kinda maybe gonna write that someday" plot bunnies gamboling in the back of my brain, argh -- but in the end I went with my original idea. This is actually quite unusual for me and exchanges!

There's still a week before the collection goes live, and I'd like to have someone check my remix over for general "does it work as a story?" and "does it connect enough to the original fic?" purposes. Hmm. And also probably some real-world fact-checking of a type that I suspect several people on my flist are qualified to do. It's a short fic, and I can give more details via email or private message if you're interested.

Do not worry about not knowing my mystery canon of mysteriousness. I don't really need canon fact-checking. That part I can do perfectly well myself. *grin*

So um. Please help?

(And hey, I'm totally willing to look over anybody else's remix if you want another set of eyes! I'm not always in a great place for the kind of mental effort required for editing, but this week feels like a good one in that direction and I'm not half-bad at editing if I do say so myself.)

So I may have filled a Daredevil kinkmeme prompt? Um. I'll put it up on AO3 tomorrow or Sunday, after I look it over for the inevitable glitches I'm sure I'm not seeing at the moment. But hey, y'know, fic. (No actual sex occurs on-page, but the fic is basically nothing but foreplay between naked people, so I don't think it qualifies as safe for work.)

[ETA: the slightly revised final version is now up on AO3! (Link below)]

Summary: Being with Matt is still a terrible idea, but Claire can find some compensations. (1,425 words)

Note: This fic was written in response to the following kinkmeme prompt: matt/claire, skinship. because of this gifset; matt doing it to claire or vice versa I don't mind, but it could be good if it was part of the aftersex "cuddling" that then leads to just more sex after the sex. It's also a response to the Cotton Candy Bingo prompt: skin, because why not. :-)
