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 writing date. 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.

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 (except Tumblr; fic content there is just a mirror of fic content here), 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.

1. I am moderately peeved. See, I was hit by an idea last night and wrote another piece of "An Ounce of Prevention" -- yes, against my better judgment it seems to have become a WIP -- but I can't post it because my latest transfer disk has gone kerflooey.

Electronic media degeneration is such a pain.

Anyway, I am determined that this story, at least, will not have any sort of update schedule. I will write it when I damn well feel like it, and no oftener than that.

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

2. I've worked out an amusing way to decide what to write during NaNo. I'm going to buy two 6-sided dice, which lets me roll eleven potential numbers (2-12), and I've assigned ten stories a number, with the final one being 'choice.' Probabilities are weighted so the more important stories are more likely to come up: ie, "Beauty" is 7, because I really need that done by Thanksgiving, whereas "Harvest," an Ekanu story, is 2, because that has no time-pressure at all.

My dad suggested this method, when I told him about my subverted version of NaNo. He's not much use at emotional stuff, but he does have a lot of nifty ideas!

3. I've been rereading Death Note... )

edenfalling: headshot of a raccoon, looking left (raccoon)
This story is a combination of two things. One is the ever-popular question of how Raito ended up as the sort of person who'd use the Death Note. The other is a character study of his mother, Yagami Sachiko. (Cross-posted here to Fanfiction.net.)

Hindsight )

I've used 'Raito' instead of 'Light' for two reasons. First, it just sounds better in my head. Second, if I used 'Light,' I think it would be serious overkill on the symbolism. But I could be persuaded to change, especially since 'Light' is the official English transcription of his name. Should I?

My friend Cat once remarked that almost without fail, her favorite character in any story will either die, turn out to be secretly evil, or both. Occasionally she's very lucky and they turn out to be secretly reformed villains instead, but that's about the only break in the pattern.

I can't pick 'em like she can (we don't share precognition over our telepathic link) but I do have a worrying tendency to cheer for the villains and sociopathic types, so long as they're well written. It's like watching fire -- hypnotizing. There's just something about an itelligent, semi-rational person setting out to achieve terrible goals, and making it work, at least up to a point. You ride along with them and release all the impulses you'd never act on in real life.

I also love reading stories in which people have battles of wits, or carry out complicated plans. I'm no good at writing that sort of thing, but I love to read it. (This is not to be confused with mysteries. I like to know what's going on and to watch it unfold. I like watching the clockwork move.)

I think one of the main things I don't like about Harry Potter is that Voldemort is, bluntly, batshit insane and kind of stupid because of it. Oh, it works within JKR's world, but that's not how I like my villains. In Naruto, I find Akatsuki and Kabuto much more interesting than Orochimaru, because Orochimaru is a monomaniac without much subtlety, whereas Kabuto has something ticking away behind his eyes, and Akatsuki is clearly working on a plan at least a decade in preparation. Granted, individually they may be a disappointment, but as a group they have something going for them.

I'm not at all surprised that I am in love with Death Note. Yagami Raito is everything I like reading about -- rational, intelligent, persuasive, gifted at reading and manipulating people, willing to risk it all on slim chances when he has to, composed in a crisis -- and for all that he's a serial killer with a god complex and sociopathic tendencies, he does have reasons for what he does, and on a certain level, it's hard to argue with his logic.

(The fact that Takeshi Obata draws him fairly hot doesn't hurt, either.)

And in L, he has such a wonderful opponent! Those two were made for each other. (Well, of course they were -- they're fictional, and Tsugami Ohba wrote them that way. But still.) As for the new arc, well, spoilers )

I am totally not surprised that most fanfic for this series seems to be Raito/L slash. I don't think I could write that -- their minds are too much part of it, and I'm not a schemer on that level -- but oh, when you do it right...!

Actually, I have a sudden urge to write a character study piece for Misa, mostly because I really itch to get my fingers into her mind and explain her the way she isn't really explained in canon. The information is there, but the writer isn't doing anything with it. I want to pull pieces together and try to figure out how she ended up the way she did, and why she's as obsessive as Raito and L. (Actually, all the main characters in this series, with the exception of Yagami Souichiro, are obsessive. I wonder what that says about Tsugami Ohba?)

Hmm. *wanders off, contemplating*

Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fanfiction: Miscellaneous Fandoms
---------------------------------------------

Organization: This list is organized alphabetically by fandom. Within each fandom, it's arranged first by associated story cycles (if applicable) and then by date. 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).

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: Outside of my main fandoms, my fanfiction writing tends toward resolving plotholes and other canon problems, the creation of backstory (which is itself a form of problem-solving, where the problem is a gap in canon information about a character or an event), or prompt responses (often for Yuletide). Therefore, almost all the stories on this page are an expression of dissatisfaction with canon, of curiosity about what lies behind the canon we see, or of an attempt to satisfy somebody else's heart's desire. Once I've resolved a problem, filled a gap to my own satisfaction, or answered a prompt, I generally have nothing further to write in that fandom, which is why these subsections have so few stories.

Anyway, there's a lot of random stuff on this page, and some of it I look back on and wonder what on earth I was thinking, but overall I do like most of these stories -- probably because when something bugs me so much that I write a story to fix or explain it, or when I am writing to make someone else happy, I care enough to give my best effort.

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.
