This is a request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] silverblade219, who wanted a sequel to The Two Secretive Princesses, which is part of a novel-length Avatar: The Last Airbender/Enchanted Forest Chronicles fusion that I am still determinedly not writing.

I went for something approximating a direct sequel after all. This happens fairly early in the story, not all that long before Aang meets Katara and Sokka. It is probably the worst thing that happens in the over-arching plot (well, along with Ozai's treatment of South Wolf River and the college of magicians where Aang grew up), and is much more tonally in line with Avatar than with the Enchanted Forest Chronicles elements of the fusion. Oops?

Toph and Mai during the invasion of Toure-on-Marsh. (925 words)

The War of Secret Flames: Silent Screams )

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

Well, that was depressing.

...

All three of them make it safely to the end of the story, Mai and Ty Lee switch sides, Toph's parents get un-petrified, and it turns out that at least 80% of the people in the castle survived as well. Still, a lot of people died, and died horribly. This is what happens when Ozai decides to conquer all the countries around the Mountains of Morning and make magic-users rule over non-magical people.

ETA! The story was so depressing that I wrote an alternate version to be a better tonal fit with the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. I am not sure yet which version is the 'real' one, but I am leaning toward this new one, since I am trying to slide the Avatar characters into the Enchanted Forest world rather than vice versa, and the Enchanted Forest has strong implicit canon about what level of realism and darkness is allowed.

So. Let's try this again: Toph and Mai during the invasion of Toure-on-Marsh, take two. (1,025 words)

The War of Secret Flames: Turn to Stone )

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

Still not fluffy-happy, but at least nobody (or hardly anybody) seems to have died. Also, I got to mention Aunt Ermintrude. I am quite fond of Aunt Ermintrude. :-)

Found via [livejournal.com profile] askerian:

Pick one of my stories and I will tell you the first line (ETA: okay, the first few paragraphs, on the theory that context is more interesting than concision) of its sequel. Even if I was never actually planning to write a sequel. Even if it already has a sequel -- I'll give you the first line of another version of its sequel!

Do not ask me about "Strange Likenesses," because I don't yet know how that will end (basically, there is the wildly unlikely happy ending, several variants of the rather likely inconclusive ending, and the semi-likely 'rocks fall, everyone dies' ending). Everything else is fair game.

Sequel snippets written so far:

for The Way of the Apartment Manager (So how did Naruto wind up friends with Sakura by the start of "Guardian"? I will probably continue this at some point.)

for Lemonade (Thus proving that I do so know where the story's going.)

for Endurance (This one turned into an actual fic, 900 words long. *headdesk* I am not sure how 'canon' this sequel is, though, as I'd left "Endurance" inconclusive for a reason.)

for New Horizons (ie, the story in which Ginny, Harry, and Draco have a post-DH-epilogue threesome in Greece. Naturally there are repercussions. *grin*)

for The Two Secretive Princesses (925 words on Toph and Mai during Ozai's invasion of Toure-on-Marsh. Rather dark.)
---[[or the more canonical version, which includes fewer deaths and more mentions of Aunt Ermintrude]]

This is another prequel piece to the Avatar/Enchanted Forest fusion that I am not writing. Katara is nine in the first section and eleven in the second, so it ends three years before the main story starts.

Katara and Ursa: families, loss, and compassion. (Also laundry.)

The War of Secret Flames: What You Wish For )

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

That was really kind of random. I was not expecting Ursa to be involved in Katara's backstory at all, but at least now I know what became of her after she had to leave Veritand in a rush.

I am collecting the previous two snippets of the Avatar/Enchanted Forest fusion of DOOM that I am not really writing (seriously, I'm not! *crickets chirp*) for the sake of convenient reference. So. 650 words featuring Zuko, Morwen, Sokka, and Toph, with incidental appearances of Katara, Aang, and various cats, plus mentions of other characters.

These snippets are actually separated by, oh, at least a couple weeks and a lot of potential story -- though I grant you, a fair amount of that time is taken up by people traveling and, in Zuko's case, figuring out where to travel, because he is heading off to find the wizards' new secret headquarters and blow it up (Jet helps) -- but they bookend each other neatly, so I am sticking them together.

The Enemy of My Enemy... )

...Is NOT My Friend )

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

...It is very bad of me to have, like, a novel's worth of outline at this point, right? *headdesk*

Anyway, bed now. I have to get up early in the morning.

Here is another Avatar/Enchanted Forest crossover snippet. This is set two years before the story proper (which starts with Aang meeting Katara and Sokka, as per canon), but is useful in establishing some of the changes this world has made to the Avatar characters and situations.

Toph and Mai (and background Zuko), completely gen. 650 words.

The War of Secret Flames: The Two Secretive Princesses )

This is like crack, I swear. And really not what I need to be writing. First I need to write my Yuletide fic. (For which I now, at least, have a firm idea. Yay progress?) Then I need to finish the untitled Star Trek thing. Then I need to get back to "Secrets" and make the damn story end sometime before I turn twenty-eight. *headdesk*

Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fanfiction: Crossovers
---------------------------------------------

Organization: This list is organized in vaguely chronological order, counting from the start of each series or multi-chapter story. Memes and miscellaneous one-shots are at the bottom of the page. Word counts and writing dates are approximations.

Content/Warning Policy: 1) I am not consistent about warnings! I use them when I remember, for a few relatively broad categories of potentially problematic content, but if something is off-page, non-explicit, or generally backgrounded, I probably won't think to note it in the metadata. 2) The things I try to warn for are explicit sex, rape, murder, torture, cannibalism, incest, depression/suicide, familial dysfunction, and occasionally also societal dysfunction (aka dystopia). Sometimes I just slap a general content warning on all my fic for a given fandom and don't label each individual fic. I also don't generally warn for violence, unless the violence in a fic is dramatically out-of-step with the violence in its source canon. 3) I don't use any content rating system unless I'm posting to a site or community that requires or encourages ratings, because I find movie-style ratings counter-intuitive when applied to written fiction, and not particularly useful for anything other than denoting the presence of explicit sex, which I already note in the metadata.

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.

Notes: My approach to crossovers is to take a stupid and/or ridiculous idea -- because crossing two separate secondary worlds is almost always a silly thing to do -- and treat it as realistically as possible, paying particular attention to characterization. I figure that I'm asking readers to suspend so much disbelief over jamming two series together that I'd better not push on any other aspect. Also, I feel the point of a crossover is to have characters from different canons meet -- or at least to have characters from one canon react to a different canon world -- so if you aren't writing them in-character, why are you even bothering? *grin*

Where To Read: As always, if an AO3 version exists, it is definitive. FF.net versions are definitive in the absence of an AO3 version. Journal versions are the equivalent of beta drafts, though the shorter and/or fragmentary works may never be posted anywhere else.
