vanimadin: (Drowning In Crystal And Sapphire)
So back a few years ago, I started writing Come The Dawn with Fireblade. It's a Valdemar fic. Is anyone surprised by that? I honestly can't remember how it came about that we decided to co-author something together, but it worked out okay, even though CTD still isn't finished. We're working on it, okay? XD;;

Anyway, as part of working on the CTD concept and whatnot, Fireblade wrote out a bunch of prose in the form of ballads, which were/are going to be added to the fic in various spots and are "written" by characters in the story, and turned into songs by Phineas, our resident irritating Bard. I was and still am in awe of Fireblade's writing skills. I couldn't write poems/prose if my life depended on it, with the possible exception of haiku lol. ^^;

Purple Hippo:
Look out the window,
Black squirrel with a brown-grey tail,
No one else sees it.

MOVING ON. =D

I finally found the printed pages of these ballads, and rather than chance losing them (again), I'm going to post them here for safekeeping. Like I said, I didn't write these, they're by the wonderful Fireblade. Just sharing/saving them here because I can/want to. ♥

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*

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.

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. >>;

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!)

Circus Side-Show is yet another fic that I started writing years ago and then never really got anywhere with it. =/ It takes place in-and-around Brothers At Arms and Under The Big Top, and follows Kitty, a young changechild cat-girl who was introduced as one of Morgan's friends and fellow circus-players in UTBT. Circus Side-Show is a much, much darker fic than BAA or UTBT, though. Because the Gods know I can't stick with fluff for long, even if my life depended on it. :P lol.

In amongst the papers where I found the pages of So Long And Thanks For All The Fish! I also found a few other writing/rp-related things that I want to keep. So posting them here so that I can find them easily in the future. ^_^ I'm keeping the hard copies, too, of course, but I always feel better if I have important things archived in more than one place. :P

So here we have the profile for Trea Delaney and her Companion, Laksha. I wrote this out for the Companion's Choice RP (I think it was that one, anyway) but then never really got around to rping with them much before CC shut down. I like the characters, though, so I want to work with them again at some point, probably in fic form rather than rp. (Mostly because there are no Valdemar rps out there right now, despite my attempts to put one together a while back.)

Way back like ten or twelve years ago I was part of a half dozen different Valdemar rps. The most prolific ones were Stealing Hearts and Valdemar Calling, and of those two my favorite rp thread was from VC and called "So Long And Thanks For All The Fish!" I played in it with Firefox, etcetera-cat, Sethi, Shalimari and Lila, and it was awesome. And last night I came across a few pages I had printed out of my favorite part of that particular thread, and decided I'm going to post it here, just for shits and giggles. ♥

So, without further adieu~

Look, a new one-shot! ...sort of. Shatter is actually one I started writing about, oh... eight years ago? It sat dormant on my external hd for that ridiculously long, yes. XD; Anyway, Shatter is the sequel/companion fic to Remember Me, the one I wrote about Nori Arcott and the Companion Zivanka that was kind of experimental for me in the way of the tense I was writing in. Shatter is, of course, written in the same tense so that the two fics match each other. ♥

The beginning of a new fic! ...because I obviously didn't have enough on my plate as it was.

Thanks a lot, Seth. :P Anyway, Aftershocks is tentatively planned to be about four chapters long, or five to six at the most. But then, stories have a way of snowballing on me, so it might end up longer after all. lol.

New chapter of Whipstitch! Yay! This fic is still my baby. I love Snow, Abby and Xia SO MUCH. But it's coming along a little slower than I'd originally planned. Ah well, I'd rather work slowly than bang out inconsistent or crappy work, right? I think once Whipstitch is finished, I might write a couple of short one-shots with the characters, just because I'm so fond of them. And of course there are more characters to introduce later on in the fic that I'm hoping will be just as lovable...
