thrihyrne: Portland, OR (slave to the muse)
It's nearly the conclusion of 2008, and while I do have a couple of stories which haven't yet had the author reveals, I'm going to go ahead and do a summary of the year. It's been another productive one, in which I dove head-first with great gusto into a new fandom, which really surprised me. I thought my head would be full with Harry Potter and Tolkien and I'd never get involved in any others. Instead, Storm Constantine's Wraeththu series of books totally took over, but I also wrote a few short selections in Ellen Kushner's Swordspoint world as well. I'd love to write some Mary Renault The Persian Boy fanfiction one day, but it hasn't yet happened. ;)

I'm going to organize these by fandoms rather than by date, but here's what I've written and posted in 2008 (not including 2 fest stories not yet revealed):

Wraeththu
All of my Wraeththu fics can be found here at my website. You can't leave reviews, but for the first fic below, I do have it saved as a pdf there, and there are pictures of 'Castlegar' as well as some other yummy pictures.
§ Maelstrom and Mage, Desire Thine Darkling
49,083 words; Ashmael/Vaysh and OCs, adult
Available here at Forever Wraeththu [where you can leave a review! ;) ] or here as a pdf file to download.

44,523 words; Vaysh/Ashmael and OCs, adult
Available here at Forever Wraeththu. I didn't get around to making a pdf of this one, though maybe I will soon.

3,015 words; Cal/Swift, adult
Available here on LJ or here at Forever Wraeththu

§ Interpret Me the Savage Whirr
6,198 words; Seel/Ashmael, adult

§ Quare Clausum Fregit (Wherefore he broke the close)
3,364 words; Vaysh/OC [Yazdyar, from 'Down the Whispering Well'], adult
Available here on LJ and here at Forever Wraeththu

§ Mere Trifles
1,723 words; Seel/Swift (not adult), Cobweb
Available here at Forever Wraeththu or here at my website. I don't seem to have ever posted it at my LJ!

13,800 words; Chithra/Lemuel (OCs), a study of Fioan/Colurastes cultural interaction, adult

4,979 words; Ithiel/Cobweb and Ithiel/Terzian, adult

§ Libertine
389 words; Terzian, PG-13
Available here at my LJ

A few Wraeththu drabbles written along the way are here at my website

Harry Potter
§ Cloudscape of Ravens
18,030 words; Ron/OC, Ron/Severus, adult
Written for the [livejournal.com profile] ginger_lust Ron-centric fest I hosted with a lot of help. The link there is locked to ensure no-one underage in the community got to it, but you can read it here at my website or here at Skyehawke if you'd care to leave a review.

§ No Shame, This Life, Beloved
14,792 words; Ron/Draco, adult; in all likelihood, the last story in the "Magic Immunity" story arc.
Available here at my LJ

§ A Rally Toward Exalted Moments
5,567 words; Harry/Charlie, adult
Available here at my LJ or here at the [livejournal.com profile] weasley_fest community

§ Scotch Game
9,144 words; Ron/Remus, adult
Available here at my LJ; it's locked at the [livejournal.com profile] remus_ron_slash community to prevent underage folks from reading it there.

§ The Sensibility of Wantonness
3,181 words; Ron/Draco ["Crown of Rope" universe], adult
Available here at my LJ

I also seem to have written a slew of various drabbles by request on a few different days. Rather than organize them, there are a bunch of requested HP drabbles here (some Wraeththu, too, but I put them on my website), a rare het Ron/Hermione drabble here and Ron/Charlie drabble from the vampire!Charlie incest story I wrote a year or so ago for [livejournal.com profile] wolfiekins

I also have one lingering WIP, a Dean/Ron for the very patient Callum James. I actually printed out what I had when I was at his flat in England in October, and I really will finish it. It's just taken a back burner, to my chagrin.

Swordspoint
These are nearly all drabbles, though I think I did write a vignette. LOL. I've written a lot this year and can't keep it all straight! Hence the annual wrap-up.

Basil's Banquet, Fall of the Kings drabble
Untitled Richard/Alec drabble
Revenge Effloresces, Richard/Alec drabble

Hmmmm. Thought I'd written more Swordspoint than that; I think I just wish I had!

Lord of the Rings
Unbelievably after my start in the Ardaverse, the only things I've written in LotR fandom this year have been drabbles, but I do seem to have written a few. All are general rating unless otherwise noted.

Untitled Halbarad-centric drabble
Alliances, Gimli-centric
Untitled Gimli-centric drabble
Untitled Éowyn-centric drabble
Untitled Celeborn/Aragorn drabble, adult
Another untitled Gimli-centric drabble

Wow. So, looking at the non-drabbles, it appears as though I've written around 200,000 words of fanfiction this year. I'm not a real word-counter usually; it's just good for me to look at the year and see where my focuses have been. Obviously it's been with Wraeththu more than anything else, and I don't know what my focus will be next year. I will be expanding "Maelstrom and Mage," trying to double it in length to get it ready to be a proper novel available from Immanion Press, and my slashy_santa fic is Tolkien. This year I also started out trying NaNoWriMo, so I wrote about 3K of actual original fiction. Wheeeeeee.

For those of you who have read and enjoyed my stories and let me know, thank you so much! Feedback, commentary, and enthusiasm are always gratifying for an author.
thrihyrne: Portland, OR (Vaysh bartek by me)
Title: Quare clausum fregit: Wherefore he broke the close
Pairing: Vaysh/OC
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 3,350
Alerts: Rooning; pretty much PWP, but some character study for Vaysh in his early years in Immanion
Summary: A story of hope for Vaysh, that he won't remain forever closed off to the possibility of true affection with another har after Ashmael. That's up to him, of course. ;)

A/N: This story is set two years after the Epilogue of "Down the Whispering Well." Written thanks to the prompt from [livejournal.com profile] heartofoshun who gave me the suggestion, "Write a missing scene or something set within Down the Whispering Well" Friday night when I was desperately in need to write something. Hope that you enjoy.

Quare clausum fregit )
thrihyrne: Portland, OR (Default)
Yes, for those of you who are into this, I created a soundtrack of sorts for this novella as well, featuring songs that I either listened to obsessively while writing it and/or songs I felt went along with Vaysh as a character and all I put him through. The megaupload link is here; I don't think they last forever. It's a zip file.

here is the liner art, or you can just see the playlist )

Enjoy! And crazy me, I started writing something else Wraeththu last night, set off in the future and not a gap-filler, though I think I'd also like to write another shorter fic with the characters I've fallen for. There's something about Wraeththu in their earlier, more feral days that really appeals to me. I've had two requests with Ulaume, and one friend has mentioned the Froia, though I may have to write a Seel/Ashmael when Ashmael was having regular frolics with him in Saltrock. There'd be some definite bittersweet there, and some guilt-free rooning.

At any rate, please enjoy the music and let me know if you have any comments or thoughts on the soundtrack, or anything else to do with those two novellas. You all have been so generous in your appreciation of my writing and exploration of the characters… thank you, again!! ♥

Title: Down the Whispering Well
This post rating: general
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1927
Disclaimer: Ashmael, Vaysh, and the harish world all belong to Storm Constantine; I'm merely playing with great abandon in her sandbox.
Pairings: Vaysh/Ashmael (historic); this post, Vaysh/Velaxis

Novella summary: Being brought back from the dead doesn't mean happily ever after, especially if you're Vaysh. Life has its costs, and he pays dearly. An exploration of Vaysh's character in the years before and through Pellaz's transformation, and the burdens he endures, because he must.

Post summary: Time passes, some deep wounds begin to heal. Vaysh may never be comfortable around Ashmael again, but there are others who will always care for him. Continued from post 10, here.

Thanks again to all who have read this novella and shared your enthusiasm with me!

Down the Whispering Well, Epilogue )
thrihyrne: Portland, OR (pentimento)
For those of you who've been reading along (and the Epilogue is still to come), you've probably noticed that there was a poem or song lyric at the beginning of each post. That started out as happenstance; I wrote the poem that appears at the beginning of the first post and then decided to find appropriate headers along the way. Would you all be interested in a selection that has the entirety of the poems, in order, as well as the songs from which I posted the lyrics? There's a soundtrack to come for this novella as well: by Monday I should have the Epilogue completed and I'll find more beautiful men art for the 'soundtrack' liner for the soundtrack and have it ready to upload as well. But if there was interest in the totality of the poems I quoted from, or if you all were at all curious about them, let me know.

Also, now that that is done, I think it's time for another shorter Wraeththu story. Suggestions? Scenarios/pairings/polyamorous situations you'd like to see me write? Let me know!

Novella summary: Being brought back from the dead doesn't mean happily ever after, especially if you're Vaysh. Life has its costs, and he pays dearly. An exploration of Vaysh's character in the years before and through Pellaz's transformation, and the burdens he endures, because he must.

Post summary: A very canon ending; what's done is done, and Vaysh confronts what he must: he is stronger than he realizes. A few quotes, again, from Enchantments, as to ignore them would seem stilted. Continued from post 9, here. Epilogue to follow shortly. My thanks to Storm Constantine for having captured my imagination with Wraeththu so much over the past few months, and having led me, thusly, to those of you reading this.

I'm now ready to write more Wraeththu PWP, or something set far afield from this. These two gapfillers have worn me out, though I still love Vaysh more than life itself. I don't say that this is at all healthy. ;)

Post summary: Vaysh discovers that the reincarnated Pellaz is not someone he wants to spend time with, meaning Thiede has given him an engraved invitation to his own personal hell. Thankfully he has a respite with Firethorn and Yadzyar, but he knows Immanion awaits, impatiently. Continued from post 8, here.

Post summary: Five years have gone by; a har from southern Megalithica is reborn and is transformed by Thiede's hand as Vaysh was before. Vaysh is commanded to be his guide, confidante, caretaker— and he doesn't have to like it. Continued from post 7, here. This post has a few actual dialogue quotes from Enchantments; I couldn't really avoid it, but I'll be doing so as best I can now that I'm fully integrated into canon. The story has already been eloquently told by the Master and I don't wish to quote her canon verbatim as that's already been done! But I felt it would be really odd to skip this part entirely, so there are a few sippets of canon dialogue in here.

Post summary: Vaysh crosses metaphoric swords with Phade until Natalia comes again, and he returns to the cold place. Things have changed, and Kervad is the one to serve as messenger. Continued from post 6, here.

Chapter summary: The months pass more quickly thanks to Jaffa and Firethorn's presence. Noric asks questions that lead to illuminations about Firethorn and Vaysh; it's news to Noric, Grimska and Feslavit, anyway. Vaysh experiences the beach for the first time before Thiede comes along to do what he does best in Vaysh's life: turn it topsy-turvy. Continued from post 3, here.

A/N: I did some research comparing the maps of Almagabra to Europe and Phade's tower looks as though it could be in modern-day Poland. To that end, I've placed 'the cold place' in Lithuania. The city they go through to get to the beach (Baltic Sea) is Palanga, and the nearby scenic World Heritage Site of the Curonian Spit. I'm a total research whore; I needed to know where I felt they were in my mind's eye, so I'm sharing that with you all. Google searches will reveal picturesque photos of both Palanga and nearby town of Klaipeda. At this site you'll find a couple of beautiful high-res photographs of the Curonian Spit.

It's Natalia, no longer Vaysh's favourite holday. Not a har to miss a party, he goes, but the night plays out far differently than he imagined. This post a bit shorter than some, but soon the plot will pick up. Continued from the prior post, here. As always, comments welcome and ruminated upon! I'll admit that my take on Velaxis has been gratefully influenced by the stunning writings of [livejournal.com profile] camile_sinensis.

Time pases in 'the cold place,' and summer allows Vaysh an occasional respite from his demons. The coming of Natalia brings things to the surface Vaysh doesn't want to deal with, as well as unexpected guests. Continued from the first post, here.

Yes, here's the first post for the sequel to Maelstrom and Mage. I'm not going to put angst as a warning; the whole thing is going to be full of it. Enjoy! :P Or something. It won't be totally relentless, but as we know, Vaysh is pretty tragic.
