Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fanfiction: Minor 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 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.

Notes: Minor fandoms are ones where I have not written anywhere even vaguely approaching as many words and stories as my four major fandoms, but I write in them not just to resolve one or two issues, or in response to ficathon assignments. (I would like to have a tidier definition, but we can't get everything we want, now can we?) So these stories are kind of a grab-bag mix.

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.

Contents: BtVS/A:tS, The Dark Is Rising, the Darkangel trilogy, Enchanted Forest Chronicles, FF7: Mercverse AU, Inception, Star Trek: AOS.

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

Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel: the Series

BtVS is about a California teenager named Buffy, who slays vampires; she is aided in this task by a group of misfit friends. A:tS is about Angel, a vampire with a soul who is trying to earn redemption for what he did before he got the soul; he dated Buffy for a while, then moved to Los Angeles and got his own show, where he and a group of misfit friends run a supernatural detective agency of sorts.

*More or Less the Same: WIP, 11,300 words so far, started March 2004. Anna Metzger's family moved to Sunnydale in the summer of 1999, just before her senior year of high school. Four months later she woke up undead. A look at the demon underground's reaction to the Initiative through the eyes of a very practical young vampire.

Anna was initially designed as a self-insert. She had other ideas, however, and insisted on becoming her own person -- we share a basic family background and a number of attitudes, but the details of our families and friends have drifted apart, her choices and rationalizations are not necessarily my choices or rationalizations, and her vocal tics aren't mine either. (Well, not exactly mine.) Still, this is an extremely self-indulgent story, so I've never felt hugely impelled to finish it. Death, violence, murder, violent imagery, implied sex, cursing, bloodlust, humans treated as prey, non-explicit gang warfare, past turning of family members, implied polyamory. (It's a story about soulless vampires. What did you expect, kittens and flowers?)

More or Less the Same: The Vampire and Her Family: 450 words, March 2004. Character study of the Metzger family. Not completely compliant with its parent story -- it's the sort of exploratory noodling I usually keep to outlines. [15-minute fic]

He Had a Little Cat...: 450 words, March 2004. Cordelia's neighbor attempts to exorcise his cat; she drags him to Angel Investigations for help. Fragment. (This is technically a crossover with the song The Cat Came Back, but I consider it more a conceptual borrowing than a true crossover.)

*Health Insurance: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 700 words, Oct. 2009. Xander deals with one minor practical detail of setting up shop in Cleveland. Now if he can only talk Buffy around to his idea... Prompt: Perhaps something lighthearted from Buffy? Xander being great? [Request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] yggidee]

Lazy Day: (AO3 version) 3,600 words, Nov. 2011. Faith and Buffy watch taped episodes of Firefly in Cleveland. Slice of life with introspection and meta.

*In the Absence of Sun (The Grief Inside Your Bones): 5,175 words, May 2014. Buffy goes to LA after Angel's private little war. Faith trails her like a dark mirror, chasing her own demons and debts. Neither expects to run into Wesley. Buffy/Faith/Wesley, explicit sex. Written for Remix Redux 11, based on In the Absence of Sun by [archiveofourown.org profile] templemarker.

Going Native: (AO3 version) 150 words, Oct. 2014. Giles gives up on keeping the Scoobies from eating and drinking in the library. [prompt!fic for [personal profile] rthstewart]

*Missed Connections: (AO3 version) 225 words, Feb. 2015. Sometimes Giles sees echoes of himself in Faith. Written for [personal profile] snickfic in the early 2015 Three Sentence Ficathon.

no friend like a sister: (AO3 version) 300 words, Jan. 2016. In Cleveland, Buffy takes up coloring books as an escape; Dawn notices. Written for anonymous in the late 2015 Three Sentence Ficathon.

*won't take this lying down: (AO3 version) 175 words, Dec. 2016. Faith is not subtle at flirting. Buffy/Faith. Written for [livejournal.com profile] celeste9 in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2016.

The Dark Is Rising

A series of five books by Susan Cooper, set in 1970s Britain, that chronicle the great final conflict between the forces of the Light and the Dark, and how various British children become involved in that struggle. It is one of the great loves of my childhood.

*Loving Bonds: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 2,800 words, Dec 2009. There is a fierce long age between Arthur's reign and the final Rising. Any number of things could have broken a chain of descent and prevented the Light from having a Pendragon on their side. Why, then, did Blodwen Rowlands allow Bran Davies to remain in the 20th century? Contains discussion of premature birth and the death of a premature child, and a threat to a living child. (Written for [livejournal.com profile] rizny in Yuletide 2009.)

("Loving Bonds" was remixed by [archiveofourown.org profile] ishafel in Remix Redux 10 as Loving Bonds (The Dark Night of the Soul Remix): Sometimes all you have is faith, hope, and love. Sometimes faith and hope fail you, but love never does.)

A Simple Plan: (AO3 version) 1,200 words, Jan. 2010. The White Rider goes to Wales, accepts a ride from a stranger, and has a stilted conversation. History is changed by the smallest things.

*They Have To Take You In (A Sheepish Story): 1,700 words, June 2015. After the events of The Dark Is Rising, the Black Rider calls the White Rider for help. This is only amusing for one of them. Written for Remix Redux 12, based on Strategic Sheep Purposes by [archiveofourown.org profile] Gramarye.

I Have a Secret: (AO3 version) 200 words, Aug. 2015. Jane plans to study archaeology. She'll explain about the 'underwater' part some other day. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50]

Echoes of the Past: 2,275 words, Dec 2015. Bran and Will have settled happily into ordinary lives, until Jane calls with news of a brewing magical catastrophe on the Isle of Wight. Written for [archiveofourown.org profile] harborshore in Yuletide 2015.

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

Darkangel Trilogy

A trilogy of YA fantasy books by Meredith Ann Pierce, about vampires on the moon. (Yes, really. I swear the story is a thousand times better than that summary makes it sound.) It sticks in my head mostly because Pierce refuses to go for the conventional happy ending and writes something much odder (and better!) instead.

That Which We Are, We Are Forever: (AO3 version) 450 words, Aug. 2009. Irrylath spent nearly twenty years as an icarus. That cannot be totally erased. Implied preparation for suicide. [gift!fic for [livejournal.com profile] aishuu; 15-minute fic]

whatever a sun will always sing is you: 150 words, Dec. 2009. Erin is always at Aeriel's side as they build their world and their lives. Written for [livejournal.com profile] fresne in Yuletide 2009.

This is a tale told on the plains of Avaric, in the dark before the dawn when Oceanus wanes and only stars shine faint in deepest heaven. For though the stars see all, they keep their silence and carry no rumors to the jealous Powers of the world. Written for [livejournal.com profile] aishuu in Yuletide Madness 2014.

*That Perches in the Soul: (AO3 version) 225 words, Dec. 2014. Hope is the thing with feathers. Erin and Aeriel, post-canon. [15-minute fic]

*Tomorrow's Memory: (AO3 version) 425 words, April 2015. Because she had stopped counting the passing of daymonths after reaching one thousand, Aeriel could scarcely believe the change wrought in Avaric. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50]

When a Princess Royal: (AO3 version) 500 words, Aug. 2015. On the night of her many-times-great niece's birth, Aeriel listens to a storyteller in Pirs. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50]

years of drought and famine: (AO3 version) 225 words, Jan. 2017. The clouds are thin in the first years: translucent veils that drape in narrow, scattered bands across the sky. Written for [livejournal.com profile] silvr_dagger in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2016.

Written on the Skin: (AO3 version) 250 words, April 2017. Erin asks Aeriel to paint her skin after the custom of Zambul. Prompt: grooming (brushing / braiding hair, painting nails, etc.). Written for [community profile] genprompt_bingo. [prompt!fic for [personal profile] minutia_r]

And o'er his heart a shadow: (AO3 version) 400 words, Dec. 2017. First Melchior thinks that the Lady saved him to be a weapon against her lost and deadly daughter. Written for [personal profile] minutia_r in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2017.

Non, je ne regrette rien: (AO3 version) 100 words, Dec. 2018. All choices are knives, that sever potential futures. Written for anonymous in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2018-19.

*Here There Is Life: (AO3 version) 200 words, Jan. 2019. "I've never seen so much water," Winterock said as she followed the seven duaroughs down into the tunnels. Written for [personal profile] adaeze in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2018-19.

Enchanted Forest Chronicles

A fantasy tetralogy with a wryly humorous approach to traditional Western fairy-tale elements, which begins when the princess Cimorene runs away to become chief cook and librarian for the dragon Kazul and develops in ridiculous yet oddly logical directions from there.

unwanted blessings: (AO3 version) 500 words, Jan. 2017. Morwen's roommate has an idiosyncratic reason for studying magic. Written for anonymous in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2016.

*A Splash of Color: (AO3 version) 1,625 words, June 2016. Stokey's Academy of Magic was too new to have many traditions, but the students and faculty were working hard to make up that deficit -- primarily by declaring any particularly interesting accident 'a new tradition!' and egging people on to repeat it the next year. Between them, Morwen and Telemain started five traditions in their first two years of study. This is the story of their sixth. Prompt: color. Pre-series, written for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] wistfulmemory]

**The Affairs of Dragons: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 9,000 words, Oct. 2008. In which Morwen loses her house, meets a princess and a knight, does a favor for the king of the dragons, makes a new friend, and finds a new home. Pre-series, written for Femgenficathon 2008.

*An Unexpected Meeting: (AO3 version) 3,525 words, Feb. 2017. One Monday morning two months after Kazul's coronation (and all the chaos leading up to it), Cimorene woke up completely and utterly out of patience for wrangling her new responsibilities. "We are taking tomorrow off and inviting Morwen over for a picnic," she said as she cleared away the breakfast dishes. Kazul readily agreed. Of course, nothing ever works out quite so smoothly in practice... Prompt: picnic. Written for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] wistfulmemory]

Taxonomy: (AO3 version) 100 words, Dec. 2018. Technically speaking, dragons are cold-blooded. Written for anonymous in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2018-19.

a real magic: (AO3 version) 225 words, Nov. 2016. The Enchanted Forest goes slightly overboard when welcoming Cimorene into the royal family. Written for [livejournal.com profile] recessivejean in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2016.

Grandmother Dragon: (AO3 version) 575 words, April 2018. In which Kazul looks after Daystar and Telemain while Cimorene and Morwen take a day off. (The baby is much easier to handle.) Prompt: the age of reason. Written for [community profile] genprompt_bingo. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] wistfulmemory]

*Theory and Practice: (AO3 version) 1,350 words, Jan. 2018. In which Morwen mediates a small disagreement over magical experiment design, and translates for Telemain in the opposite direction from normal. Prompt: fundamental particles.

*none of these rescues, please: (AO3 version) 425 words, Dec. 2015. Daystar didn't think he'd ever met a princess who wanted to be a novelist before. Post-series, written for [livejournal.com profile] silvr_dagger in the late 2015 Three Sentence Ficathon.

*A Bit of Hot Water: (AO3 version) 4,350 words, July 2017. Six months into Shiara's term as Kazul's princess (or apprentice -- which wasn't exactly the correct term either, since she wasn't studying to become either a dragon or a king, but felt less presumptuous than claiming to be royalty), she insisted that Daystar come visit her for a change. Prompt: pipes and beer. Written for [community profile] genprompt_bingo. [prompt!fic for [personal profile] wistfulmemory]

xxxxx

Find Me a Find: (AO3 version) 725 words, Nov. 2018. Three days after Princess Phernalia of Paras negotiated a one-month trial contract with the dragon Razik, extensions pending satisfaction from both parties, three of her companions in dire captivity paid her an unannounced visit. The resulting conversation did not go where she expected. Canon-divergence AU. Prompt: soulmates. Written for [community profile] ladiesbingo. [prompt!fic for [personal profile] wistfulmemory]

Final Fantasy 7: Mercverse AU

All my FF7 fic is set in the [livejournal.com profile] mercverse AU created by [insanejournal.com profile] icedark_elf. This is her summary of the 'verse:

The Mercverse is a FF7 AU world spawned by various pics people sent me or I found roaming the mass of sites I can't understand. They were full of shinies. Some of the pics are here. If you know of others, send them my way and I'll be more than willing to go "ooh, shiny" and probably write more fic.

The universe is completely open. The only canon is the following: Cloud is immortal, Sephiroth is a mage adept, Zack is more than human, and Vincent and Chaos are half-demon twin brothers. Other than that...have at thee. Want to bring in other fandoms, ignore everything else besides what I just said was canon, or anything else? Feel free to do so.


The participating authors later agreed on some other bits of canon -- Cloud is obsessed with tea; Zack was a street rat in Midgar before Cloud adopted him; Cloud is related to the Shinra royal family; Aeris and Tifa work in a nightclub; the world is an uneasy balance of fantasy and high-tech; neither demons nor Cetra are native to this world, and a couple thousand years ago they fought a massive war; Cloud is probably Jenova's grandson -- but those are less 'fixed,' so to speak. (Also, a lot of the backstory is my own invention, so I'm never sure how firmly it was adopted by other participants.)

*Yesterday and Tomorrow: (AO3 version) 1,600 words, May 2006. He passes it off and no one thinks to question him. Cloud, on death and time; slightly experimental in structure. Implied torture of family members.

*Two Guys and a Girl: (AO3 version) 22,000 words, July 2006-Jan. 2008. When Tifa Lockheart meets Zack and Cloud Strife outside Nibelheim, she's only expecting a minor break in the routine of a small mountain village. She gets much more than that. A story about friendship, secrets, growing up, and the birth of one girl's social conscience. Implied past torture and murder, societal dysfunction. ("Two Guys and a Girl" suffers from awkward pacing, mostly because I thought it was going to be a humorous one-shot and it went rather dark and philosophical on me instead, but I do like the basic premise... so much that I'm slowly cannibalizing it for an original young adult fantasy novel!)

Zack's Collection: (AO3 version) 550 words, Sept. 2006. Zack introduces Aeris to the pack. Cute and silly, implied polyamory.

*Glass and Shadows: (AO3 version) 1,500 words, Dec. 2006. Sometimes he thinks his soul is torn, and every time he dies another piece of his past bleeds away. Cloud, on memory and penance; a companion piece to Yesterday and Tomorrow. Torture of family members.

Pilgrim's Passage: (AO3 version) 900 words, Jan. 2007. A traveler meets a boy on the bridge to Nibelheim. Prompt: Um, how about something for Mercverse? 'Cause I seriously never get tired of those... Le'see... I can't help but wonder what happened the first time Cloud met one of the Cetra. Did they recognize who Cloud's father likely is? And if they did, how did they react? *tilts her head* What do you think? Implied past war crimes. [Request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] yuenoclow]

Inception

A movie about criminals who enter people's dreams to steal ideas... except that this time, their job is to create an idea instead.

**Postcards from Naxos (You Don't Have To Go Home, But You Can't Stay Here): 5,300 words, May 2011. In the months after the inception job, Ariadne slips from one life to another. Written for Remix Madness 2011, based on With Thanks to Apollo by [livejournal.com profile] sour_idealist.

If You Have Any Questions After the Lecture: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 525 words, June 2011. Ariadne and Arthur, a tag to the paradoxical architecture scene. [15-minute fic]

When You Have To Go There: (AO3 version) 600 words, Sept. 2011. When Cobb goes home, Arthur is happy for him, but that's the end of their partnership. A post-film character study of Arthur, plus random thoughts on the extraction business. [15-minute fic]

An Adjourning Heart: (AO3 version) 575 words, Nov. 2011. When she was still in her right mind, Mal once spent a week pondering funerals. In the end, only Arthur was left to carry out her wishes. [15-minute fic]

No Illusions: (AO3 version) 150 words, Dec. 2011. Prompt: Mal, 'Darkness has come upon me, painting, black, palpable; wipe it out, Dawn, like a debt'. Written for [livejournal.com profile] seasight in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2011.

("No Illusions" was remixed by [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_krysis in Remix Madness 2012 as Come Upon Me (Like a Debt Remix): Dom lives the same mistake over and over again.)

*Dreamers of the Day: (ff.net version; AO3 version) 11,000 words, Dec. 2011. How Gwen Levine got into dreamshare, kicked ass, took names, and found herself inextricably entangled with a forger going by the name of Eames, and how said forger found himself similarly caught. Girl!Arthur/Eames, as told in a series of twenty prompt fills for [livejournal.com profile] be_themoon (and one more just because). Contains some violence and some oblique mention of child abuse and murder.

Who Fell Among the Thieves: (AO3 version) 725 words, Feb. 2012. Arthur didn't help Dom run from California, but he couldn't let him drown on his own. [15-minute fic]

Blueprints: (AO3 version) 1,150 words, May 2012. This is how you build a castle. This is how you build a life. Ariadne gen, written for Femgenficathon 2011. (Yes, I know, it is eight months late. I fail at deadlines forever. *headdesk*)

On Totems: 100 words, April 2014. Why does a forger need a totem?

*Skies of Summer: (AO3 version) 1,875 words, April 2014. Ariadne knows she can build a dream; she folded Paris on top of itself, after all. But translating that first success into a reliable skill is a little trickier than she expected. Ariadne & Arthur friendship. Prompt: clouds. Written for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo.

("Skies of Summer" was remixed by [archiveofourown.org profile] katilara in RemixRedux 12, as Skies of Summer (Dare to Hope Remix): Ariadne seems to have an innate talent for building in dreams, but Arthur knows there are other virtues she'll need to be truly successful.)

Perchance To Dream: (AO3 version) 350 words, Oct. 2014. Arthur lends Ariadne one of his favorite books. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] hungrytiger11]

Star Trek: AOS

I was briefly obsessed with Star Trek in junior high and high school, which mostly took the form of reading tie-in novels. I also saw the first eight movies, a few episodes of TOS, a few episodes of TNG, and snippets of DS9 and Voyager. So my canon knowledge is spotty and over a decade dusty.

Then I saw the 2009 reboot movie (aka Star Trek: AOS) and my old love was rekindled. It's the Vulcans. And the optimism. And the love shining through the secondary canon and fanon surrounding the whole creaking edifice. The science is laughable, the acting and writing can be wince-worthy, and the optimism can calcify into self-righteousness or delusional utopianism, but at its best Star Trek is a hymn to the power of hope, community, and tolerance, and a guidepost reminding us that the future is ours to make better than the past.

How can you not love that?

A History of Handcrafts:

A handful of fluffy friendship fics, loosely connected by the assumption that Jim Kirk likes to knit things for his crew. This began as an unexpected remix, which later added two equally unexpected sequels. One day I will figure out why I keep writing stories about knitting when I don't knit. Until that day, it will remain a mystery. A fluffy mystery, perhaps, but a mystery nonetheless. :-)

**A History of Handcrafts (Because a Sweater Equals Love): 3,200 words, April 2011. Love doesn't have to be difficult: all you need to do is reach out to your friends. A story in three parts and many knitting projects. Gen with background Amanda/Sarek, Kirk/Gaila, and Spock/Uhura. Written for Remix Redux 9, based on Spock's Sweater by [archiveofourown.org profile] melayneseahawk. (I also posted a discussion of how and why I read and remixed MelayneSeahawk's fic as gen, though I later learned she wrote it as shipfic, which I would like you to read after you read the stories.)

*A Guide to Guerrilla Knitting: (AO3 version) 950 words, Jan. 2013. Being Jim Kirk's friend doesn't magically make him less annoying. But Nyota can hold her own. Prompt: sprains/strains. Written for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. [comment!fic for [livejournal.com profile] cherokee1]

All on a Summer's Day: (AO3 version) 1,975 words, Aug. 2014. Nyota Uhura, Christine Chapel, Hikaru Sulu, and Gaila -- the not-quite-senior officers of the Enterprise, minus the two disqualified for being underage and/or crazy -- gather for their weekly game and gossip session. This week's mission is Hearts. Prompt: WILD CARD. Written for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. [gift!fic for [livejournal.com profile] vehrec]

-----

Everything Else:

Penelope, Weaving: (AO3 version) 700 words, May 2009. Amanda and Sarek on Vulcan, shortly before their marriage. [15-minute fic]

("Penelope, Weaving" was remixed by [archiveofourown.org profile] Estirose in Remix Madness 2014 as Where The Wood Drake Flies (The Squirrel With The Table Remix): Amanda is still learning control, but at least she has Sarek.)

*And in the Bottom of the Box: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 625 words, June 2009. Spock compares his timeline to its original. Thoroughly gen, depresssingly philosophical. [15-minute fic]

Some Work of Noble Note: 850 words, Dec. 2009. A string of bad luck has haunted the Gypsy Moth for months; a standoff with a fleet of Orion pirates is just icing on the cake. Prompt: one small ship, a pirate squadron, and Enterprise still an hour out. Buying time for the colony behind them, not themselves. [Request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] valles_uf]

In Foreign Tongues (Been All Over You): 1,600 words, April 2011. Nyota offered herself as Gaila's sister when they first met -- she greeted Gaila with her name in all openness, the traditional overture to the creation of an in-net -- and Gaila has never regretted accepting that gift. Gaila/Uhura, dubious consent, mildly explicit sex. Written for Remix Redux 9, based on Talented Tongue by [archiveofourown.org profile] MelayneSeahawk.

*While We Live: (AO3 version) 1,950 words, May 2011. A horrifically compressed version of Gaila's early life on Orion Prime, her escape to the Federation, and the reason she joined Starfleet. This wants to be the first third of a novel and is more a world-building exercise than a story, but I really like the ideas. Contains non-sexual slavery.

Implications: (AO3 version) 575 words, March 2012. Jim Kirk loves his crew. [prompt!fic for [personal profile] jjhunter]

Body Language (The Scent of Home): (AO3 version) 180 words, Dec. 2013. Prompt: Uhura/Gaila, lost in translation. Written for [livejournal.com profile] silvr_dagger in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2013.

Stranger in a Strange Land: (AO3 version) 200 words, Dec. 2013. Prompt: Gaila/Jim, she's more adventurous than him which he loves. Written for [livejournal.com profile] scripps in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2013.

**Reign in Hell: (AO3 version) 240 words, Dec. 2013. Prompt: Mirror!Gaila/Mirror!Uhura, plotting the revolution. Written for [livejournal.com profile] silvr_dagger in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2013.
