I'm still working on this fic, too! Haha, I totally won't forget about Rift and co., I promise. ♥

I totally can't remember Jayke's last name atm. So I'm giving him a new one, I guess. lol. .__.;;

OUTLANDER: Chapter One )

I've started working on a new Valdemar one-shot fic. It's actually one that I've had milling about in the back of my head for years, and I'm just now finally getting around to tinkering with it. When the idea first struck me years back, I actually intended for it to be a chaptered fic, but when I started writing a few days ago it became very evident that it would work out better as a series of one-shots instead.

The one I'm writing right now is called In The Forest and is, of course, the beginning of the entire set of stories. There may or may not be any number of follow-up short fics, or possibly a chaptered fic after all. I'm not entirely sure, and I figure I can decide on that later once I have In The Forest finished and posted. I'm hoping to get some feedback before I make up my mind where to take things next, if anywhere at all.

Anyway, working on this fic has established a pair of Companions that I'm finding myself very fond of already; I think I like Sarie and Kitean more than I have any of my Companions recently. They're siblings, and I think it's the dynamics of their relationship that make me like them so much. They just really amuse me, Kitean being kind of a girl about some things (in particular; insects) even though he's a stallion, and Sarie loving nothing more than to tease her brother about it when he has "OMG BUGS NUUUU GETTHEMOFFME!!" fits. Haha. XD;

Maybe when I get it finished I'll ask one of my Valdemar friends to give it a read-over and tell me what they think. I really like how it's coming along. It's been so long since I've done much writing, though, so I'm kind of worried that, even though I like it, it might not be... up to par with my previous writing? I dunno. I'm very unsure right now. =/

As well as ITF, I'm also working on the first chapter of Outlander (I need to hurry the hell up, there are apparently a few people really looking forward to more of it. ^^;) as well as a new chapter of Marionette, which is one of my personal favourites, even though I haven't worked on it in a long time.

I think Marionette represented a real change in my writing style. It was about then that I started really working on improving my writing, and it really shows in that fic. On top of that, Auralee's story was one that I had thought out beginning to end, unlike most of my other fanfiction.

I really tend to just start writing without any forethought or real planning when it comes to my fan works. There are very few that aren't kind of spur-of-the-moments, at least at first. With most chaptered fics, once I got the first prologue/chapter out I did generally take the time to figure out at least the basic plot points for the rest of the story. Ironically, when I'm doing original writing, I can work on background, religion, storyline, characters and etc. literally for YEARS before I finally get around to writing something. >>;;

It's been a long time since I really worked on much in the way of fanfiction or original writing (outside of rp fic); I mean literally years. All my health problems and the prescription cocktail that I'm on haven't helped with my concentration and I just can't sit around and work on nothing but writing for hours on end like I used to be able to.

Lately, though, I've been thinking that I need to at least try to get back into it; writing is my outlet for when I'm upset, angry, sad, stressed or depressed (hence all the angst), and when I can't express it I end up bottling it all up until I have a complete breakdown. =/

Hence the sudden influx of original writing notes that have been posted here the last few days. >>;

So anyway! A couple weeks back I typed out the prologue to a new Heralds of Valdemar fic entitled Outlander. It was kind of made up on the fly, and after I posted it to FF.Net I ended up deciding I didn't like some of the names and spellings that I had used originally. Considering I was flying by the seat of my pants, it's not all that surprising. Anyway, I've tinkered with the character names and whatnot, and now I'm much happier with them. ♥

I've started writing the first chapter now, so I figured I'd post the prologue here. *shrug* If you're reading this and want to leave feedback, I adore constructive criticism. You can either leave it at the above link to my FF.Net page (scroll down; Outlander is the first fic listed) or in a comment here.

Outlander


Title: Outlander (Prologue)
Fandom: Heralds of Valdemar
Author: [livejournal.com profile] senashenta
Rating: PG -> PG-13
Characters: Rift, Sorret & Divya, Loki & Cria, Ren & Gwydion, etc. (All original characters, no canon ones.)
Disclaimer: Valdemar & concepts belong to Mercedes Lackey. Original characters & this fic belong to [livejournal.com profile] senashenta
Summary: A Companion Feels his Call... but it will take him farther than any of his kind have gone before.

A new land... )

Basically, Rift used to be called "Cahyr", but it was too close to "Cahir", which I've already used for another fic.. Originally, Nida and Mouse were supposed to be in Outlander, but they have been replaced by Sorret and Divya. Then Loki's Companion's name was changed from "Oratha" to "Cria". No big deal, but the names and characters were bugging me. :P

Oh, and I also figured out a last name for Ren, so he's now Ren Larsen. YAY.
