Master list of masterdom

There's so much, where to begin? Well, it depends. Most of this is Narnia, though there are a few other things, too. To decide if you are interested in "Not My Children's Narnia" (I'm an adult writing mostly adult characters for mostly adult readers) try Under Cover, or the first three chapters of The Stone Gryphon, Part 1 (Oxfordshire 1942), and/or the first four chapters of By Royal Decree. If you don't like those, you probably won't like the rest of it.

The Other Stuff
Liliandil and the Just King aka it's not all about you
Kwong Lee is a bad Buddhist
Lie Back and Think of Narnia -- Peridan, Flobber and meaning of the word "fark"
The Horse, his boy, the girl, her horse, the Rat and the Trickster stories are here and here
You need a wolf to run a mole to ground -- The Stone Gryphon AU
Morgan and Edmund On Two Hearts Day in the Lone Islands and Acceptance of the terms (after the departure of the Four)
Comment Fic, Give the Pevensies A Friend
More Comment Fic, including why Edmund and Leszi don't get along, why Morgan and Peter don't get along, and Jalur and the Cub.
And Then The World Blew Up (only here because really, how can you resist Sherlock Holmes, L.King's Mary Russell (no relation to Mary Anning Russell of TSG -- a coincidence), Ramses Emerson and Edmund Pevensie in Jerusalem in 1918?  The F List and I couldn't and comment fic madness resulted. The only thing missing was Miles Vorkosigan and maybe his mother.)
Lots and lots of Alternate Universe Stone Gryphon stories (where everyone lives and nobody dies and there are adventures) are scattered all over this LJ and spread to others. The easiest way to find out about the camels in the Sahara, spies in Moscow, alligators, and Che Guevara is to go to the TSG AU tag
Eustace, Jill and Quebec
The Great Mother's Day Debate in which the Just King argues for posting Chapter 8 of By Royal Decree so that he can have sex and accuses Rthstewart of disrupting expectations because she's worried her children will grow up to be like him.
Food for Thought, in which I channel the mind and writing of a 16 year old girl who blogs about going through her Great Grandmother Susan's wardrobe.

Because people sometimes ask, On the Narnia side, you have, in chronological order:

The Palace Guard (chronologically first but written after By Royal Decree)
By Royal Decree and at AO3
Chapter 1 of It’s The Thought That Counts
Black as Rat and Crow
Harold and Morgan: Not A Romance (in progress, maybe)
Two Hearts Day (part of H&M: Not A Romance)
Acceptance of the Terms (part of H&M: Not A Romance)

Deny the Child (sequel to Acceptance of the Terms by the awesome Anastigmat)

I love not the man less but nature more the Great Bonding of The Monarchs To Narnia
comes first chronologically but I do not recommend reading it until you've been through at least the Narnia stories and probably Part 1 of TSG. And maybe not even then. It's not for everyone, though its assumptions are sprinkled throughout the overall story arc.


On the Spare Oom side you have, in chronological order,

The Stone Gryphon, Part 1, Oxfordshire 1942 and at AO3
Chapter 2, It’s The Thought That Counts
The Stone Gryphon, Part 2, The Queen Susan in Tashbaan and at AO3
The Stone Gryphon, Part 3, Apostolic Way
(up to Chapter 15)
Rat and Sword Go To War

I personally think that before you start Part 2 of The Queen Susan in Tashbaan, it's a good idea to skim By Royal Decree and Harold and Morgan (even though unfinished) because there’s a lot that happens there, especially in terms of Edmund’s story, that is relevant. The Palace Guard is relevant to the Good Beasts and other personalities who crop up throughout The Stone Gryphon. I don't have many true surprises but one of them is spoiled in Chapter 2 of the It's The Thought that Counts so you might want to read Chapter 14 of The Stone Gryphon, Part 1, Oxfordshire 1942 first.

Stories outside this (intended to be) cohesive vision are:

Under Cover and at AO3
The Maenad of the Maquis and at AO3
Follow The Star and at AO3

Oh My Gawd, it's sooo long, so here's a short cut

I know you can't see it but I'm cuddling my laptop's screen. Or rather I was since I can't cuddle the screen and type out my comment at the same time.

Explanation so you're not backing away from the laptop-screen-cuddling crazy person xD I made the mistake of expecting a certain level of writing in my college fiction writing class, forgetting that most of the people haven't written fiction before. And I have to politely critique the stories despite wanting to curl up in a corner and cry or brain my classmates with basic grammar/spelling textbooks >.> Bad me I know. They can't improve without more experienced writers pointing out what could be done better but ARGH. So right now, seeing anything well written on my screen makes me happy and restores my faith in writing-humanity if that makes sense.

*cough* Right. So, reading your stories at any point in makes me want to heap tons of probably repetitive and unoriginal praise upon you but I'll skip that. I always enjoy getting the tidbits from the various stories you're working on since it keep me as a reader engaged and wondering what happens before/after/behind the scenes. I'm excited to see more of the Lone Islands arc once you conquer the dialogue and plot issues. I find strikethrough and whiting out text are wonderful tools that let me play with different outcomes of current plot strands without losing previous bits of writing in case the new bits don’t work and I end up going with my original ideas.

Sorry I haven't gotten back and responded to this lovely comment. I've been working very, very hard to beat Harold and Morgan in the Lone Islands into shape and at 15,000 words for this chapter, it's a slog. Thanks so much. The support means the world to me and I feel badly that I'm leaving readers hanging so much.

And you might think its repetitive and unoriginal, but feedback is enormously helpful to me. Over and over there are things that in the story, or things that are better in the story, because readers put them there.
