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.

edenfalling: stained-glass butterfly in a purple frame (butterfly)
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/

Theme: #11 - Snowfall
Warnings: spoilers!
Notes: The main plot of this ficlet is set post-manga, in very late 2007. The flashbacks run from shortly after the First Holy War to shortly before Setsuna's birth, and are not all in chronological order. Setsuna is 24; Sara is 23. This falls between Talking Over Distance and "Looking" (which I have not yet finished).

It took me about three years to write this, mostly because I was never quite sure where it was going. I am still not sure it all hangs together logically, but whatever. (6,900 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Snowfall )

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

In other news, I have obviously missed my posting date for [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest. *sigh* I will try to get the story finished this week and post it next Wednesday, since Wednesdays are amnesty posting days this year. (The story has gone annoyingly political on me... by which I mean that I want to be writing about sexual orientations but the characters are determined to talk about inheritance rules and the political implications of tangled Ymris genealogy and marriage games. *headdesk* Astrin, for my sake, please stop being so private and just tell Rork your main reason for remaining single instead of arguing all the ancillary justifications!)

Theme: #20 - Far away
Warnings: spoilers!
Notes: This ficlet is set way, way post-manga, after Setsuna and Sara eventually die, with all attendant spoilers. It was meant to be a long, involved tale of heavenly politics, but Jibril put her foot down and went off in a different direction, and I ended up at roughly the same conclusion minus several thousand words of plot.

(I am also minus several thousand words of justification for the eventual threesome, which I have tried to make up for a little bit, but I think I may end up writing a sidestory at some point to explain that mess. Or I may shoehorn some of it into "If It Wasn't You..." in which case I will have to come back and edit this fic slightly.)

Anyway. Story! (1,800 words)

PM is on vacation this week, so I am nominally in charge of the store. Yay? Also, I have a dental appointment this coming Wednesday, and I can't remember if it's just a checkup or if it's for my last set of fillings. Quite possibly it is both. *sigh*

Theme: #29 - Tattoo
Warnings: spoilers!
Notes: This ficlet is set way, way post-manga, well after Setsuna and Sara eventually die, with all attendant spoilers. (Randomly, this is both theme #29 and the twenty-ninth story in my chronological sequence. So by this point, the threesome-of-sorts is pretty well established.)

The Transient and the Eternal: Tattoo )

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

That was kind of fun to write. I'd had the basic idea set for a few years, but it never really clicked to life in my mind until this afternoon, whereupon I wrote the ficlet in about an hour. *shrug* Inspiration is weird.

In unrelated real life news, today it snowed in Ithaca! So I took my winter coat out of storage... and discovered that the zipper had broken. Last year, the pull tab fell off the part that slides up and down and locks or unlocks the teeth, but that was easy to fix; I just stuck a key-ring through the little hole. This year, the whole locking apparatus fell off, so I am left with nothing but two rows of naked zipper teeth.

Bah.

Fortunately, the coat also has snaps, so I was able to brave the snow and buy groceries, but I have called a tailor and plan to take my coat in to get the zipper replaced on Monday morning, because the snaps alone will not keep out the winter wind.
