Apparently I forgot to post a notification when I stuck parts 11 and 12 up a while ago. Oops. Anyway, parts 11-14 are now up on AO3. Parts 11, 12, and 14 only have a few very minor changes, but I made heavy tweaks to Kira's relationship advice in part 13, to reflect the fact that he likes and respects Sara as a person.


The Transient and the Eternal: Stop That - Kira takes Setsuna and Sara into the city to forget about their parents' impending divorce. (2,950 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Touch - Some days Kira feels both more and less human than usual. (300 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Fever - Kira tries to get drunk, with uncertain results (1,325 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Bloodlines - Kira tells Kato the truth. This is a mistake. Unethical use of magic. (1,475 words)


General warnings for Angel Sanctuary apply: namely, that the canon is built of WTF and incest (and very pretty art), so please proceed with caution. :)

I'm going to keep posting these for a while, though probably not on any actual schedule. Anyway, parts 7 and 8 are now up on AO3. Part 9 has minor edits from its beta draft version. Part 10 has more significant changes, particularly to the concluding paragraphs.

The Transient and the Eternal: Kisses - Kira and Setsuna discuss a theoretical extra-credit science project. (1,275 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Irritating People - Setsuna has a girlfriend. Sara and Kira hate her. (1,400 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Time - Jibril in heaven, watching Alexiel's executions. Off-screen murder, torture, and rape. (1,275 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Love Bites - Alexiel introduces Nanatsusaya to Jibril. Dubious power dynamics and obsession. (2,200 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Naptime - After the Second Holy War, Nanatsusaya wanders the earth. War and implied murder. (700 words)

I'm going to keep posting these for a while, though probably not on any actual schedule. Anyway, parts 3 and 4 are now up on AO3. Part 3 has some tiny edits from the beta draft on my journal.

The Transient and the Eternal: Get Out - Jibril delivers a message to Alexiel in Eden. Mild gore. (1,275 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Giving Up - Alexiel and Lucifer flee Atziluth. (2,500 words)

It is once again internet housekeeping time!

In other words, I decided to start tidying up the extant parts of "The Transient and the Eternal" and posting them on AO3. If nothing else, that will let me cross an item off my long-running to-do list, and in the best case scenario it might inspire me to finish the remaining five themes. So in that spirit, parts 1 and 2 are now up!

The Transient and the Eternal: Alone - Alexiel in Eden, contemplating her bargain. (1,100 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Forbidden - Jibril speaks with Lucifel shortly after his meeting with God. (1,500 words)

I'm doing [livejournal.com profile] thirtyforthree again, this time for Kira Sakuya/Mudo Setsuna/Mudo Sara from Kaori Yuki's Angel Sanctuary. There will be spoilers in nearly every theme -- given the characters, it's nearly impossible to avoid them! -- and a lot of potentially objectionable content. This is because the source manga has a lot of potentially objectionable content. If incest squicks you, or you know you'll be bothered by some unusual and often negative interpretations of Judeo-Christian theology, you probably won't want to read any of these stories.

With that said...

Theme: #15 - Stop that
Warnings: spoilers!
Notes: This fic is set pre-manga, between Irritating people (in which Sara and Kira hate Setsuna's girlfriend) and Touch (in which Kira feels less human than usual). In this installment, Kira takes Setsuna and Sara into the city to forget about their parents' impending divorce. (2,950 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Stop that )

My outline for this fic was originally two scenes longer and included an interlude with a jerk hitting on Sara (after which both she and Setsuna angsted a bunch about their forbidden love), but I figured I'd leave things on a slightly less melodramatic note. The photograph described in the text comes from near the end of vol. 3 of the manga.

Only five segments of this project left!

Theme: #3 - Giving up
Warnings: spoilers!
Notes: This fic is set way the hell pre-manga, and is the bridge between Get out (in which Jibril visits Alexiel in Eden) and Love bites (in which Jibril makes a bargain with Nanatsusaya). As always with this project, I am assuming Jibril was a lot more active in protesting the state of heaven than Raphael gives her credit for. (2,500 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Giving up )

I have no idea why this fic, of all things, chose tonight to wrap itself up, but I'm not complaining. Writing is writing, and now I only have six more pieces to go until I am done with this project. *crosses fingers*

Okay. Sleep now.

Theme: #6 - If only
Warnings: spoilers!
Notes: This fic is set post-manga, in March 2038. Sara is 54 and Setsuna 55. At some point in the past decade, they moved back from Nagasaki to Tokyo since their parents are both dead now (father from a heart attack, mother from pancreatic cancer) and they're not that worried about hiding anymore. In terms of internal series continuity, it falls between Babies and "If it wasn't you..."

I wrote the first half of this story in 2008 and the second half in 2011, but only got around to the last few paragraphs tonight. I therefore suspect the ending is a bit rushed; if you have any suggestions for smoothing it out, please tell me! (1,900 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: If only )

---------------------------------------------

There. That is my token gesture toward productivity for today. (And my choice of story to finish has no connection whatsoever to my approaching 30th birthday, certainly not, I can't imagine why you might think so! *overly dramatic shock*)

Tomorrow I must buckle down and actually work on my poor neglected Narnia Big Bang. I know how to fix the current scene I stalled on, and while I am not quite sure how to get from Rabadash-makes-Ilgamuth-buy-a-spare-horse through the rather nebulously outlined war section to the closing scenes in Tashbaan (which are already written and just need a little polishing once I know what the immediate lead-in will be), I am sure things will shake out in the actual writing. I have done most of the necessary world-building in my head over the past month while I was making no progress whatsoever in terms of word count.

Theme: #8 - Babies
Warnings: spoilers! Also, some depiction of the fallout of an acrimonious divorce, especially its effect on a child.
Notes: This fic is set post-manga, in autumn of 2015; Setsuna is 32 and Sara is 31. It falls between "Clouds" and "If Only," neither of which are finished yet. (Possibly more helpfully, it falls after Fluffy Things, in which Setsuna and Sara assume a second set of false identities and move to Nagasaki.)

I originally meant this to be more humorous, but I got sidetracked by the philosophical complexities of reincarnation as proposed (in a maddening muddle) by Kaori Yuki, and then it took me forever and a day to wind the narrative back to the point of the prompt, as you can tell by the wordcount. I would also like to note that no actual babies appear in this story. *wry* (6,000 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Babies )

---------------------------------------------

So yeah. A little angstier than I'd intended, but whatever -- it's done! \o/
