brightknightie: A blue and white stylized Toronto skyline, circa 1992-1996 (Default)
I've previously posted about the nice things that I received in my own Fandom Stocking this year, and about the neat things that I spotted in other people's Fandom Stockings, so tonight I thought I'd point out the items that I stuffed into some Fandom Stockings myself. I didn't create as widely or well as I'd have liked, but I did have fun writing:

  • Highlander: "Lazarus Heart" (Methos/Alexa, 918 words, G) (beta-read by [personal profile] celli!) for [personal profile] beccadg's wish
    I'd never tried Methos/Alexa before, but the attempt turned out surprisingly satisfying for me. I hope that it works as well for readers, and doesn't bog down when I poke around inside Methos's head for a bit in the middle.

  • Forever Knight: "In Pursuit of the Paladin" (Lacroix & Natalie with Nick implied, 991 words, PG) (beta-read by [personal profile] skieswideopen!) for [personal profile] pj1228's wish
    This led me to a new approach to the ever-vexing problem of how to write for fellow FK fans who personally prefer "dark" takes that I can't support, myself. Here, I imagined a "bright" scenario that I'd love, but told it from Lacroix's perspective. It worked better for me than some past, straining attempts to approach "dark" prompts, but I don't know whether it really bridges the problem of sufficient respect for preferences I can't share. Maybe it's better not to try? There are so few of us! Are mismatches better than no matches, or not?

  • A handful of fanfiction "gift certificates" in FK and HL for stories to be posted to the AO3 sometime in 2014
    (Four have been redeemed/accepted so far. Coincidentally, that's the same number I still owe from the last time I tried this — you know who you are. ~grin~)
brightknightie: Tessa working with a chisel tool at her desk in the barge (Other Fandom HL Tessa)

I wrote "When Everything was New" for [livejournal.com profile] hl_flashfic's "Second Banana" event, to the prompt: "Alexa meets Tessa at an art show."  I'd written HL in multi-fandom games before, and just because, but this was my first attempt in an HL-specific venue.

Thanks to [personal profile] sholio and [livejournal.com profile] skieswideopen for beta-reading!

Available: The Ficathon | My Fansite | The AO3
Length: ~4,800 words
Date: HL_FlashFic 08/12/11
Rating: PG
Characters:   Tessa, Duncan, Alexa, Martin Sorrel, uncredited cameos
Summary: Tessa exhibits in the juried division of the 1986 Seacouver Art & Wine festival.
Quotation: "Tessa hesitated. Pressing for public reaction was rarely wise; and, usually, she was content with her own assessment and Duncan’s, other critics be hanged. But she remained unsure where her efforts fit at this festival, if they fit at all."
