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. Read at your own risk! 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.

ORIGINAL FICTION:

These stories are all mine! *grin* I use the same warning policy and quality rating system as for my fanfiction.

Yet another 15-minute fic exercise that ran overtime -- about 60 minutes for this one. Also, I don't think it works very well. It flails badly and keeps wanting to be a different story entirely.

I actually figured out, about two paragraphs from the end, what the "egg" ought to be, and therefore what story I should have been telling instead, but that one will take a lot longer to write and also hooks into some of my other original fiction, which will require me to revise a bunch of details, to the point where the finished version will be drastically different from this groping in the dark through half-remembered themes.

So I thought, what the hell, I'll post the bad version just to prove I wrote something this month. It's a fairy tale, kinda-sorta, 1,025 words long.

Fall Into the Sea )

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

And that is that. For now.

The downside of being fascinated by story structure is that I tend to plan stories whose outlines look something like this:

The Three Sisters:

1. The Three Sisters, I: introducing Kathry, Sai, and Ithardy, which (after Tel's arrival) segues into

2. The Changeling Prince, I: introducing Prince Telisharr, Queen Hone, Prince Jardai, and Thalassa the sea-queen, which then segues into either

2a. The Three Sisters, interlude 1: in which they divy up the quests

OR directly into

3. The Castle in the Air: in which Kathry goes on her part of the tripartite quest, followed by

4. The Glass Mountain: in which Sai goes on her quest, followed by

5. The Garden of the Sun: in which Ithardy goes on her quest (possibly helped and/or hindered by Tel), which segues into either

5a. The Three Sisters, interlude 2: in which they all return to Immish

OR directly into

6. The Changeling Prince, II: in which they negotiate new terms for the fostering alliance, which segues into

7. The Three Sisters, II: in which Kathry, Sai, and Ithardy part ways.

...

I'm not sure what possessed me to think it would be fun to try jamming five fairy-tales into one story (and they're all original fairy-tales, too, though they do use a lot of standard tropes), but hashing this out on paper is giving me a massive headache.

...

This is a fairy tale set in the world of The Moon's Daughter, though it has nothing to do with either the Isles or the witches of Immish. Instead, this is a love story, of sorts.

ETA, 9/10/08: minor word flow tweaks, so it reads better aloud.

ETA, 12/19/08: elaboration on the gift-giving section, to make the moon less passive and the sun slightly less of a creepy stalker


The Sun and the Moon )

Other stuff:

1) I'm slowly plugging away at "Undertow," which is a loose sequel to "Tides," and have firmly outlined the final scene of "Secrets" chapter 11 -- it was being a pain because I had no effective cut-off point, but the scene had no purpose either, beyond filling space. Then I realized that if I yanked one key realization out of the penultimate scene, and let Ginny and Neville have a particular conversation in the final scene, things would work much better. So that's what I'm doing.

I like Neville. Also, Ginny-Neville interaction is good because it lays groundwork for them being friends of sorts in GoF, when he asks her to the Yule Ball and she agrees.

2) I mailed two Christmas presents today. I really should have done that last week, but I forgot and only got them wrapped on Sunday. Then I had the fun of trying to find ReadyMail packages and/or envelopes that fit my gifts. I ended up sending the coffee table book in a bubble wrap envelope, and the four bars of cold-kettle organic scented soap in a video cassette box. Hey, if it fits, it fits! (And I remembered to bring my aunt and uncle's address with me! My day-to-day memory is a sieve, but I can be taught. Sometimes.)

3) I need to buy electrical tape, because the wires on my hairdryer are totally stripped and the copper strands have nearly separated. I'm not sure when this happened, but I nearly burned my hand on bare wiring this morning, and I need that fixed before the weather turns cold again. I walk everywhere -- I have no car -- and walking around in typical winter weather with wet hair is not on my list of favorite activities!

This is the story some of my relatives will be getting for Christmas. It's a fairy tale, and as such follows a number of genre conventions, but it isn't a retelling of anything. I made it all up myself. *beams* (Well, except for the genre conventions, of course; I didn't create those.)

Warning: slightly morbid in places.

The Moon's Daughter )

I have other fairy tales set in this world, based around the mythos of the kings of the Isles and the witches of Immish, but this is the only one that's finished. Someday I will get around to finishing "The Sea Hag," "The Three Sisters," and "The Wizard's Bargain."

Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fiction: Original Stories
---------------------------------------------

Organization: This list is organized primarily by... *ponders terminology* by universe, shall we say. Within each universe, I organized stories by timelines, by associated story cycles, or by degree of relation to the main story; the summaries should hopefully make the patterns clear. When the 'universe' is a category rather than a fully realized secondary world, the stories are arranged chronologically by writing date. Word counts and writing dates are approximations. (Especially the writing dates. *headdesk*)

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: I am shamefully slow about my original writing, and I almost never seem to finish anything. Nonetheless, a fair amount of the following stories are complete, if only because I try to avoid posting those likely to be permanently unfinished. *sigh*

Also, a general advisory: you may or may not have noticed while reading my fanfic -- my quirks are somewhat disguised and/or mitigated by working in other people's universes -- but I am fascinated by ethics, religion, families and other social networks, sociology, history, culture clashes, world-building, and the nature and structure of truth and stories. I also have a strong tendency to focus on female characters. A lot of my original fiction is slower and more 'thinky' than a lot of my fanfic, and my issues show through more clearly.

None of these are necessarily bad things, but I figure it's only fair to tell you what to expect from my work. :)
