vanimadin: (...And I Choose You)
When I was originally planning out In Dreams, Bri's name was going to be Electra instead. "Electra" means "chosen" and I liked the idea of that for a couple of reasons, but somehow that name didn't seem to fit with the character i was building, and the more in-depth I got the more I didn't like the name Electra for her. *shrug*

Summary: They are Spirits of the Forest, crystal eyed and white as freshly fallen snow, and seen only occasionally in fleeting glances. They are said to be ethereal, angels of another time and place, bound to the Earth by a spell… or a curse. And it is the destiny of those chosen as Collegium Trainees to search for a Spirit to call their own. Only two or three of each year's Trainees manage it, and those lucky souls have been lifted to a place of honor in Valdemarian society. A place where they are among the elite guard of their Monarch and Country. A place where they can call themselves "Heralds". Now a threat to the Spirits has risen, and thanks to a "Spirit" named Lyntar, things around Valdemar are going to change...

vanimadin: (Like Crystal Fire)
On the Hunt: In the AU universe that In Dreams takes place in, there is no such thing as Companions going On Search. Instead, after several years of training (the number of which vary, depending on the circumstance) in the "general" classes (history, geography, law, religions, etc.) anyone who is a Collegium Trainee then goes into the Pelagiris Forest on their Hunt. This is a two-week camping trip of sorts which tests their knowledge of geography, as well as survival techniques, and if some time in those two weeks they are approached by a Spirit and Chosen, they become Heraldic Trainees and return to the Collegium for advanced law, equestrian and weapons training, as well as Gift training. At that point, the Spirit who Chose them becomes what they call a Companion. If said Collegium Trainees are not Chosen by a Spirit, they go back to Haven and can either take a guaranteed position in the Valdemarian Guard or go back to their lives as already well-educated and trained young men or woman. Generally, there are two or three Trainees Chosen each Hunt Season.

vanimadin: (Behind The Blue)
The chapters of In Dreams are all titled after songs. This one is rather hilariously titled after a Weird Al one, "Everything You Know Is Wrong". I can't remember which song it's a parody of at this particular moment. Anyway, so here's chapter two, which was originally written and posted way the hell back in 2003. >>;

vanimadin: (Gwydion)
So! Back to working on getting all my chaptered fics posted here, along with the one-shots! :D

Here we have the Prologue and Chapter One of In Dreams, which was the first of my Valdemar AUs and also my favorite of them all. ♥ (In fact I love it so much I've got tentative plans to write both a Prequel and a Sequel to it.) It's also the only fic I'm writing where I got other people to submit characters for-- so only about half the characters in In Dreams belong to me. The others all belong to their various creators. (And lol, etcetera-cat pretty much populated 3/4 of the Collegia for me!)
