The Palestuck archive de-anoned this morning (...wow, that was fast?) so I guess I get to tell you which fic I wrote now instead of waiting for Wednesday.

And Carry On: Kanaya helps her Empress through the aftermath of an attempted assassination. Kanaya<>Feferi. (1,400 words)

My recipient was [archiveofourown.org profile] oriflamme, who asked for the following things: 1) post-game John<>Rose piecing each other back together; 2) dysfunctional Eridan<>Vriska (with a side-order of longsuffering relationship-adviser Karkat); or 3) Kanaya<>Feferi as they try to wrangle a violent empire with only each other to trust. Option one only really interests me in the larger context of beta kid OT4, and while I think option two would be hilarious, I dislike Eridan in ways that make him difficult for me to write, so I picked option three... which kind of led me to implicitly kill all their other friends. Oops?

The story as written and posted is only one half of my original idea, but I couldn't find a coherent way to introduce the other potential plot thread (it involved details of the catastrophe that killed their other friends, something about orbital bombardment of Alternia to prevent Feferi from making it off-planet after she kills the Condesce, leading to an 'oh shit we accidentally killed the Mothergrub' moment of horror, and Kanaya's been on a quest to find a hidden and non-destroyed planet where she can hatch the Matriorb, and she and Feferi are having Emotional Issues about being separated and whether Kanaya should go fulfill her duty as a jadeblood or whether staying with Feferi is more important) not to mention it had nothing to do with Kanaya as bodyguard/fashion adviser, so eventually I chucked that aside and stuck to the assassination attempts and sense of existential political futility.

Also Kanaya was totally meant to be channeling Darth Vader's aesthetic and ambiguous relation to military hierarchy, but I don't think I got that onto the page. *sigh*

The Palestuck 2016 archive went live today, and here is the lovely story somebody wrote for me! *dances*

Proof (1383 words) by Anonymous
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sollux Captor & Aradia Megido, Sollux Captor/Aradia Megido
Characters: Sollux Captor, Aradia Megido, Original Troll Character(s)
Additional Tags: POV Second Person, POV Outsider, Pale Romance | Moirallegiance, Violence, Angst with a Happy Ending, kind of

Summary: He says he has a moirail. You're almost positive it's bullshit, but Sollux could demolish the whole hivestem with half a thought, so you're not gonna push it.


There are only twenty works in the archive -- it's a small exchange -- so do check the others out as well! :)

Work on "Guardian" is suspended for a week or so while I fulfill my Palestuck assignment. Exchange deadlines wait for no person!

But I kind of like doing these little updates, so I'm just going to talk about Palestuck for a while. :)

My recipient made three prompts. One ship and scenario just failed to grab me. The second is something that I'd be moderately interested in reading but am pretty sure I'd mangle horribly if I attempt to write it. The third, however, is my darling wonderful precious, yes it is, yes it is! *cough* Ahem. Anyway, my chosen prompt will require a fair bit of world-building (yay!) and I seem to have completely free rein over what other characters and elements to include (yikes?), so Thursday will mostly be for intense background brainstorming. I already have a few vague ideas, but I need to thrash out something that will stand up to basic logical scrutiny and also have some hooks for me to hang a plot and character arc on.

Note, 2/19/16: I might add a few more clarifications and details if and when they occur to me, but this post is now functionally complete.


Note: I am repurposing my stock Yuletide letter here, which is why some of the sections may seem slightly off-topic for a tightly-focused single fandom exchange.

Hi, and thank you in advance for creating a story or artwork for me! I'm pretty easy to please -- unless you write a context-free sex scene, I'll be thrilled just to get something in response to one of my prompts. Optional details are optional, after all! *grin* But I realize that's not terribly helpful, so here's the (very!) long version. (I am sorry for the tl;dr, but I like to talk about things I love and I figure more details are better than fewer.)


General Information )

Okay. On to specific prompts!


1. Feferi, Karkat, and politics )


2. Terezi and Vriska fail at moirallegiance )


3. Aradia, Sollux, and their neighbors )


4. Dave and Kanaya bond on the meteor )


And that is that! Once again, thank you in advance and best of luck in your creative endeavors. ♥
