This is Susan's (belated) Christmas present, all 7,300 words of it.

If I ever decide to link another series of ficlets together, and I say "Oh, it'll be easy -- I already have most of it written!" somebody please smack me. You have no idea how much tweaking it took to make all the various snippets lie down and play nicely together.

Anyway, this is based on my Ekanu ficlets, from "Beginnings" through "Paths" -- in other words, from when she's twelve to the end of her first year in Estara. It includes one completely new scene, and something like 1500 words of new material squished into the existing stories. In some cases the new material replaces old stuff. In other cases, it's supplementary.

[livejournal.com profile] aichmetes, will you tell me if I'm rambling and being an idiot in any of the transitions? Also, I think I might get your story finished by this weekend... or at least by February. *headdesk* Dunno who I'll get to edit it, though (Vicky will be far too busy settling into Budapest) so you may have to put up with my unmediated quirks, rambling, and bizarre narrative voices. Sorry!

ETA: Nevermind -- I tweaked it some and printed a clean copy. Don't worry about any edits.

I feel a need to reassure myself that 'Definitions of Romance' was an aberration and forty-some people aren't watching my journal entries. Also, I do tend to flit from project to project. So... here's an Ekanu ficlet.

In case any new people are reading this, though, Ekanu is an original character who's been kicking around my head for about 10 years. I have been writing snippets of her life for about 15 months now. Previous ficlets can be found here, though they're not in chronological order.

This one was written mostly because, in "Seduction," I mentioned that Ekanu and Denifar once climbed the chapterhouse clocktower. So here they are, up on the roof.

Paths )

Um. Chronological order, for anyone who cares, would be:

Beginnings
The Silence in the Stones
Fork in the Road
A Beautiful Friendship
Doors
An Embarrassment of Riches
Connections
Paths
Seduction
Diplomacy
Harvest, part 1
Harvest: Swarm
The Painted Sky
Flame and Shadows

Ekanu's 12-15 in 'Beginnings,' and about 30-31 in 'Flame and Shadow.'

Observe the productivity of a bored Liz:

A Beautiful Friendship )

Finished transcribing the Dueling Club scene. Oh, I have plans for that scene... evil, evil plans. Muahahahaha!!! *ahem*

It's funny. When I'm depressed, I torture Ginny. When I'm bored, I torture Ginny. And when I'm happy... well, I still torture Ginny. Man, I'd feel really mean about that if I didn't know she's fictional.

I'm much nicer to Ekanu. Usually. But then, I haven't figured out the details of some of the uglier parts of her life. Like the crash-and-burn disaster that is her attempted romance with Denifar, in their early twenties.

The first two scenes of "Secrets" chapter 8 are done, and a bit shorter than I'd expected (under 2,500 words combined). The next scene is the Dueling Club, which requires me to haul out my copy of CoS and start transcribing canon again, so I left that for this evening.

Instead, I wrote more Ekanufic.

Fork in the Road )

Other Ekanu stories in the works: the first meeting with Denifar, Darei does silk-painting, and Ekanu returns for a visit to her people. And there are other ideas, but I'm not feeling them in my bones just now.

Yet another "Ekanu attempts to adapt to Estara, with Denifar's somewhat dubious help" snippet, written just because. This is quite early, so she's still very awkward with the language.

Doors )

The sushi dinner fell through; Cat had a migraine. So Susan and I hung out and watched videos instead. We did a toss-up between Finding Nemo and The Empire Strikes Back, and ended up with the space opera. I do love that movie.
