So, Remix reveals are up!! I got three amazing stories from 3 of my favorite writers, WingedFlight, [personal profile] edenfalling , and [personal profile] syrena_of_the_lake 

For the main exchange, Winged gave me the hilarious remix of the llamas on the lam.  Winged is so wry and clever and she just nails this story.

And then Syrena wrote a veritable tear-jerker with Jalur and the Cub.

The Peculiar Case Of The Man With The Missing Soul (the Turn! Turn! Turn! remix) (8651 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Elementary (TV), Chalion Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Rating: General Audiences

Characters: Joan Watson (Elementary), Sherlock Holmes, Ms. Hudson (Elementary)
Additional Tags: Crossovers & Fandom Fusions, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Alternate Universe - Modern with Magic, The Bastard - Freeform, Case Fic, Character of Faith, Canon Trans Character
Summary:At first, Curtis Atherton's death appeared a simple suicide. Of course, nothing is simple when the Bastard is involved.  Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Joan Watson, and Ms. Hudson, Acolyte of the Bastard, are on the case.

I loved writing this story and really appreciated [personal profile] heliopausa for her help and her and Metonomia's beta assistance. It was a case fic, and long, which made it hard but the story, originally written for me at Yuletide, begged for expansion.


The second story was for the Lizzie Bennett Diaries and my thanks to [personal profile] syrena_of_the_lake  for the beta assistance. My recipient really liked it and I really enjoyed trying to write Darcy during the Netherfield arc. He's a fundamentally decent person but also an arrogant jerk so it was a challenge to balance the two.

clouds in my coffee (the diamond in the rough is looking so sparkly remix) (2296 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Lizzie Bennet/William Darcy
Characters: Lizzie Bennet, William Darcy, Bing Lee, Caroline Lee, Jane Bennet
Additional Tags: Netherfield Arc
Summary:The thing about living with someone for an entire month who you are otherwise attempting to exorcise from your existence is that you learn all manner of things about her you could have gone your whole life without learning.

 

Elizabeth, having rather expected to affront him, was amazed at his gallantry; but there was a mixture of sweetness and archness in her manner which made it difficult for her to affront anybody; and Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her. He really believed, that were it not for the inferiority of her connections, he should be in some danger.
Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 10, by Jane Austen

You anons are amazing and wonderful and I thank you. I so wanted to get to do some remixes for you all but I'm in the midst of traveling and it wasn't to be. But wow, I've received, besides the wonderful llama story, a heartbreaking remix of Jalur's farewell and a gorgeous variation on my story of Lucy and the Star's daughter.  They are below.  Wow.  I'm so happy.  Thank you. 

I do, btw,  have 2 stories up in the remix.  I'm a little bit... concerned about one of them.  Ah well.  No matter.  I have three glorious remixes and I'm delighted.

And so Harold and Morgan has concluded. The chapter is here, based heavily upon some meme responses and requests here, including E's Acceptance of the Terms and requests by Adaese and Syrena. I am going to go ahead and make a plea. If you did read it and liked it, could you let me know and please leave a review?

I guess I should say something about the characterization of Edmund Linch -- he (and Liv) are both pretty critical of their older generation. He's vowing to do it differently and Liv is there pushing him on. A lot of this is the arrogance of youth and the "I won't make the mistakes they did." He wants to strike his own path, establish his own rule, and that's not a bad thing. It can, however, be hard to read, as if some young one is just trashing all the good that came before. He's not -- Ed is just making his own way. They are young and think they know everything and I let them enjoy that surety that comes with youth.

Liv sort of leaped off the page. In pieces that didn't make the cut, I played a lot with her being very much inspired by Lucy, though with more of Susan's traditional femininity (she is 2-3 years older than he is). And I enjoyed writing their relationship, which took an unexpected turn toward the sensual, which I hope isn't off putting -- but that's where this all started. There's a lot of guilt and baggage both in H&M (for instance the way the Bankers and Calormenes look down on Narnians) and in I love not Man the less with the bonding rites. Liv and Ed are obviously way beyond that, crazy in love, completely devoted to one another, and always have been, and have a very positive and equal relationship. This chapter ended up pulling in things from nearly all my other work.

And I killed Jalur (that was Syrena's fault). And Lambert.

I had promised a second epilogue, Rejection of the Terms, in the vein of Lost in Translation's Everybody Stays, Nobody Leaves. I liked the 7000 words or so I've pulled together. The idea, which doesn't hang together completely, is set up at the beginning of Acceptance. Peter has the choice to again chase the White Stag or not. Chasing the wish leads them back to Spare Oom. It poses the same issue that underlies a lot of the work -- If you act, does it mean you don't have faith? Are you the Foolish Faun? It's at the heart of Food for Thought and the ultimate split between Peter and Susan over whether to use the rings. Peter will act, because that's what Peter does, even if maybe he should not, in this case to literally chase a wish. So the epilogue splits at this point. Does Peter chase the Stag (Acceptance of the Terms) or does he not chase the Stag (Rejection of the Terms). This piece with Dinan I owe to Adaese btw.

Rejection of the Terms is very Peter and Morgan heavy, with lots of added children sword play and food fights. it poses the idea that both of them come to terms with what family means and the possibility of letting go of expectation -- also, very much a Peter character issue. It was too long to include in this update and once Acceptance of the Terms was all on the page, I was happy with its happy ending.
a little more on Rejection and what I might or might not do with it )

if you read, thank you, so much. I'm very grateful.

I updated Lost in Translation, chapter 3, to fill the prompts that were requesting more Otter.  This is the return of Bitel and Gnash, the two otters from Herd Mentality. 

My thanks to [personal profile] starbrow  and [personal profile] pencildragon11

In the ongoing effort to post only the happy, last night I posted Lost in Translation in which Peter has difficulty with Rat and Crow code and finally gets it right at the very end. 

Ask and ye shall receive. Anons wanted Peter and Rat and Crow code. [personal profile] serakit wanted Cats (Not a kitten and but I hope this satisfies!) And this now sets up the story to come, the knighting of Otters Lady Arsehat and Sir Dickwad.

And yes, I now have Everybody Lives, Nobody Leaves AU.   Yes, it does mean I joss Acceptance of the Terms and this doesn't approach that piece's level of  melancholy.  Happy, remember? 

There are bits and pieces that are familiar -- a bit of Black as Rat and Crow because one anon wanted to know what it was that Peter did in fact end up sending to Edmund and Susan and an expansion of a very short scene in TSG Part 1.  And poor Peter.  He keeps trying to say heartfelt things and it never works out, for instance here and here.

Happy! Silly! Fluffy!

PS-- there's a little bit of head canon floating around. I've had this idea of a Black Dwarfess midwife and now introduce her and her Cat familiar. Also that scene with Peter and Leszi is right before Leszi... errr, never mind. Happy! this is all happy!
