Well, that's been embarrassing. The stories have been up for 2 weeks, but, errr, things have been intense in RL. BUT, let me share with you that the Narnia Fic Exchange in live on AO3 with a lovely variety of stories, most of which I've not been able to read yet. You can find the whole collection here and there is something of every taste and flavor.

I received a wonderful, creative, fun story by Airawyn, so go read it and them how wonderful they are!!

Summary:

All children play games, and all children grow up, and so if you should meet someone as an adult who played the same games you did as a child, perhaps it isn't so strange. Cultural influences and whatnot and so forth and doesn't every child dream of lions?

And I managed with the mad assistance of [personal profile] syrena_of_the_lake beta and editing skills to get a story in on time. I do feel it's a bit of re-tread for me. Nothing really new but I'm thrilled that I managed to pull it together and write something and get it posted, especially given my insane RL schedule recently and a whole lot of technical writing. Baby steps. But it's up and done and thank you for being such wonderful, kind, supportive readers and friends. I wrote it for FiKate who asked for something about Digory and why he became a teacher and they noted Digory's special relationship with Lucy. So, that's what I did.

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.

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Elementary (TV), Chalion Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold

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

I suppose it's fitting.  This year, I finally, finally uploaded all of Stuff to AO3 under rthstewart and on fanfiction.net under the old G2 handle.  I went back and wrote Mara in an xover with River Song in Separated at Birth in 2011 and observed at the time that some 16 years after writing Stuff, I found I was interested in different things, like whether Mara had any friends.  I'd said what I had to say about Luke and Mara in Stuff and that was all there was to say.  However, Stuff certainly assumed lots of backstory and that post Last Command Mara had a very rich life independent of Luke, that she possessed emotional intelligence, that she was loyal, that she could be fun.  What did her life look like without Luke in it? 

There were some really wonderful Mara prompts in yuletide this year.  The one I'm really sorry I didn't get to was one by [personal profile] beatrice_otter  that had me plotting Mara and Karrde on their first caper together.  I'll get to that because damn, that would be fun.  But that left some other stories that I thought I could tell, missing moments between Mara and Karrde that admittedly fill in some of my own head canon, especially abut Mara's ties to the lightsaber Luke gives her (the big tube of lipstick) and the Jade's Fire and the importance of home, belonging, and freedom.    [personal profile] ancarett  and Princess_lirin had great prompts and it was really fun to take them on as treats.

So, I wrote Home Game and Emerald Light Refracted and Dispersed which are both closely related and in fact, if you're inclined to read,  I'd recommend you read the first two parts of Emerald Light (Mara and Karrde just post TLC and just post Jedi Academy), then read Home Game (which is post Jade Solitaire and before the Corellian series) and then conclude with the final bit of Emerald Light, Mara and Karrde post-Vision.  Home Game is where I really set out my head canon on just why the Fire was so important to Mara and why it was Such A Big Deal when she destroyed her ship in Vision. 

so read if you like!  Or not!

One final observation is how really quaint the stories read to me.  They harken back to a different era in a way, heavy on dialogue and SW tech, written as spackle and gap filler in the Bantam Spectra era.  They aren't as plotty as the WEG Adventure Journal stories because that's never been my strength, but the feel, to me, is similar.  They are very old fashioned.  To that end, there are a things in both stories slipped in that harken back to that era--, references to Karrde's hard drinking Corellian stringer and the splicing of the ship transponder, Kyp Durron, Shada, the Jade's Fire beacon call, (heck the emphasis upon the ship at all), the fact that Zahn always thought post-TLC that Mara had a calling as a teacher,  and a few other things.  Certainly, anyone who has read my SW work over the years (and my and Yav's collaborations) knew it was me and I really had some moments of LULZ when Dunc  posted about the yuletide prompts on CJ

So, that's all.  Read if you like.  Happy Yuletide!
