Today is the last day to sign up for the 2017 Narnia Fic Exchange!

Come play! The NFE is a very low-pressure exchange that produces a bunch of really awesome fic in response to fun and intriguing prompts.

Even if you can't sign up, do keep an eye out for the Madness round, where you can sort through all the prompts and write ficlets that don't need to meet the minimum length requirement. :)

This morning I 'and then'ed my way through more of the space battle -- the Enterprise has just arrived in-system!

I have also been working on the first of the mini-ficlet prompt meme fills, which... uh... has gotten slightly out of hand and also seems to bear less and less relation to the bingo square part of the prompt, whoops. But I persevere!


In other news, I signed up for the Narnia Fic Exchange ([community profile] narniaexchange) and you should too!

I am also seriously considering signing up for Remix Revival ([community profile] remixrevival), which is running this year as a fill-in for the tragically defunct Remix Redux. I mean, on the one hand, REMIX!!! On the other, oh god time management... *dithers*

Over on Tumblr, [tumblr.com profile] fandomtrumpshate (a fannish charity auction) is now open. You can find all the contributor pages on [tumblr.com profile] fandomtrumpshateofferings; here is a tag list to use when searching for contributors by name or by fandoms they're willing to work with. Bidding runs through January 19th.

Here is my contributor page. It contains the information I have copypasted below, as well as links to my bidding spreadsheet and bidding form.


Type of fanwork: fic
Fandom(s): Chronicles of Narnia, Homestuck, Daredevil (MCU), others subject to negotiation; please check my previously published work for a starting point
Rating(s): G, Teen, Mature
Length/size: up to 10k words, depending on how much the bidder contributes.

Especially interested in: Worldbuilding; families of choice; works centered on female characters; works centered on something other than character introspection or romance

Will not: I will not write pining, and I suggest you avoid asking me for trope-heavy genre romance since the results will likely disappoint you. (My attempts at romance tend to come out low-key and often indistinguishable from extremely close platonic relationships, which is not what many people want from shipfic. *wry*) Aside from that, I don't have a hard and fast do-not-want list. Please contact me to make sure your request is something I can write to our mutual satisfaction.

Notes: A $5 bid will get you a guaranteed minimum of 1K words. Each additional $5 gets you another 1K words, with an upper limit of 10K words. These words do not have to all be written as part of a single story; you can split them over two or three shorter prompts, though the total word count will remain the same. I am open to trying most things, but it's hard to know in advance what might turn out to be a deal-breaker. PLEASE contact me to run your prompt past me before finalizing your bid, to make sure we both come out of this happy! :)


I have never participated in a fandom auction before; I suppose we'll see how it turns out. I do, however, have a lot of experience writing to prompts, and this is your chance to get a story with a significantly higher guaranteed minimum wordcount than I usually offer. (For the record, the usual minimums I offer when I run mini-ficlet prompt memes are 3 sentences and/or 100 words if it's just a meme for its own sake, and 500 words if I'm trying to knock off bingo squares; most exchanges, of course, set a 1,000 word minimum.)

I figure I might as well try this [community profile] snowflake_challenge thing, so!

Day 1: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I don't think the following fics are necessarily my best work -- and they're certainly not my best-known work -- but they're ones that I feel very positive toward, in this hour, on this day, for whatever reason. :)

1. Cast a Long Shadow (We All Meet in the End): Lily left empty places behind her. A story about family, loss, memory, and the passage of time. Contains familial dysfunction, mention of war and related issues, and offscreen canon deaths. Written for RemixRedux 7, based on Points Where All Shadows Meet, by [livejournal.com profile] osmalic. (Harry Potter, 8,500 words)

2. To Every Thing There Is a Season: Ilgamuth Tarkaan was fourteen when he first rode to war. He was likewise fourteen when he pledged his life and his name to Prince Rabadash, a decision that would shape the rest of his life. Prequel to Out of Season. Contains character death, violence, and moral dilemmas. Written for the 2012 Narnia Big Bang challenge on [livejournal.com profile] narniaexchange. (Chronicles of Narnia, 21,000 words)

3. As the Storm and the Lightning: Galadriel takes up the Ring. Dark. Written for [personal profile] avanti_90 in the early 2015 Three Sentence Ficathon. (LotR, 125 words)


Those are all kind of grim, aren't they? Here, have a bonus #4 to leave you on a more cheerful note:

4. In Which the Librarian of the Unseen University Makes an Unexpected Acquaintance: Exactly what it says on the tin. *grin* Written for [personal profile] ailavyn_siniyash in the Three Sentence Ficathon 2013. (Enchanted Forest Chronicles/Discworld, 625 words)

Quick update!

I got two (!!!) Yuletide fics and a really long Daredevil Secret Santa fic. They are all lovely. I have kudos'ed them all.

I am also veyr tired and kind of tipsy on champagne cocktails, so I am not leaving comment tonight (because comments should be coherent and I am kind of really really not right now, also spelling is hard) but I will do that tomorrow morning.

In themeantime, I leave you links!


That First Blush of Love (roses always wilt): Karla takes back control from her uncle, and with Morton, she starts establishing herself as Territory Queen.

You'd think that she'd be too busy for anything else. And it wasn't as if she expected anything else. After all, she never once felt attraction the way anyone else said they felt it.

Until, of course, she meets someone. And suddenly, she realizes she's not broken, or different - or even too busy. She's having the time of her life. (Black Jewels, 5,074 words, f/f, mature)


Threads from the Confused Distaff of Memory: Women born of Isternes are slaves to no man. Eryka may be locked in a tower, but she will not wait helplessly for someone else to save her. (Darkangel Trilogy, 3,414 words, gen, not rated)


The Very First Case of Page & Murdock: Karen meets Matt in her first semester at law school. Foggy is their first suspect. (Daredevil (MCU), 10,400 words, gen w/ background relationships, teen+)

I wish to inform the internet that [archiveofourown.org profile] Hananobira and [archiveofourown.org profile] Opalsong have made podfics of my Tales from the Yellow Yard series!

(Hananobira podficced "Instant Corpse Party (Party Not Included)" back in September, but now the other three fics are also available.)

[Podfic] Tales from the Yellow Yard: includes Instant Corpse Party (Party Not Included) [48 minutes], Short Story Long [27 minutes], An Elephant with Laryngitis [5 minutes], and Literal Interpretation [5 minutes].

You should go listen and tell the readers they're awesome. :)

Apparently I forgot to post a notification when I stuck parts 11 and 12 up a while ago. Oops. Anyway, parts 11-14 are now up on AO3. Parts 11, 12, and 14 only have a few very minor changes, but I made heavy tweaks to Kira's relationship advice in part 13, to reflect the fact that he likes and respects Sara as a person.

The Transient and the Eternal: Stop That - Kira takes Setsuna and Sara into the city to forget about their parents' impending divorce. (2,950 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Touch - Some days Kira feels both more and less human than usual. (300 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Fever - Kira tries to get drunk, with uncertain results (1,325 words)

The Transient and the Eternal: Bloodlines - Kira tells Kato the truth. This is a mistake. Unethical use of magic. (1,475 words)

General warnings for Angel Sanctuary apply: namely, that the canon is built of WTF and incest (and very pretty art), so please proceed with caution. :)

Hear ye, hear ye!

The 2016 Narnia Fic Exchange and 2016 NFE Madness collections are now open. This was a small year, so it's only twenty-three stories total, but I expect they are as high-quality as always.

Here is the one written for me:

Triptych (5659 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Characters: Lilith, Jadis | The White Witch, Jadis' Sister (Narnia), Aslan
Additional Tags: Charn, Worldbuilding, Rituals, Dark Magic, Religious Imagery & Symbolism, Biblical References, Blood
Summary: Lilith woke to the song of that created a world. Jadis ended another with a word. Lilith waited for Jadis at the end of their long path of willful reason.

I am too brain-fried today to write a proper explanation of exactly how and why this story is so awesome, but trust me, it is fucking awesome and you should go read it. ♥


As for myself, I usually attempt true anonymity (by which I mean I don't reuse the most visible elements of my own previous worldbuilding and character backstories), but due to the persistent brain-fry I've been slogging through all year, I did not have the spoons to play the game. You get no prizes whatsoever for guessing what I wrote, because obvious!Liz was really goddamn obvious this time. *wry*
