sun on the water

various fannish endeavors, plus annoying meatspace chores

Things I have done today:

1. Laundry.

2. Finished reading and commenting on all of this year's NFE fics.

3. Poked a little bit at the still-unfinished prompt!ficlet from my spring mini-ficlet prompt meme. I finally got the missing connective stuff into the first part of the story (ie, the part where Character A explains some of her abilities to Characters B & co so later events won't come out of nowhere), and then I accidentally changed the logistics of the big set piece scene I have not yet written. This was partly to make sense of an earlier bit of dialogue, but it's also a completely sensible change to the physical location and should add additional drama. Which is good, because reasons. :D

Anyway, that's at slightly over 3,000 words now, and I have at least another thousand to go. Probably more. Action scenes take time, and then there's some ethical discussion, and then some emotional character stuff, and then... okay, yeah, let's go with another two thousand words as my base estimate. *sigh*

Things I intend to do this evening:

1. Groceries.

2. Respond to comments on my NFE fic.

3. Start poking around the Remix Revival 2019 archive, and also advertise my gift, which is wonderful. (Um, and leave a better comment on that gift, because the current one is basically a placeholder saying "this is great and I will say more coherent things when I have more spoons," so, you know, I should probably not make myself into a liar. *wry*)

[Rec] Remix Revival gifts!

Both the Remix Revival 2019 archive and the Remix Madness 2019 archive have gone live, and I want to tell you about my two wonderful gifts!


As The Morning And The Night (The Rockabye Remix) (2055 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Edmund Pevensie & Lucy Pevensie & Peter Pevensie & Susan Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie & Peter Pevensie, Aslan & Peter Pevensie
Characters: Peter Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Gender Changes, Siblings, Family Dynamics

Summary: Mary Pevensie, in word and deed. (For a female Peter Pevensie, Narnia is when everything falls into place.)


This is a remix of The Spell Begins To Break, which is part of my As the Morning and the Night gender change AU, in which I flipped all four Pevensies' sex and gender to see what effects that would have on their basic characterizations and the plot of LWW, since C. S. Lewis relies so heavily on gender assumptions as a shorthand in that book. My remixer has also included elements from some of the other fics in the AU, which focus more on the interpersonal family dynamics between the Pevensies, but the plot is firmly anchored in "The Spell Begins To Break," which is where Mary receives her sword and shield from Father Christmas.

As I said in my comment, if I ever write further in this AU, I'm going to have a lot to live up to, in the very best of ways! ♥


A Perfectly Good Monarch (252 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Enchanted Forest Chronicles - Patricia Wrede
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Cimorene/Mendanbar
Characters: Cimorene (Enchanted Forest)
Additional Tags: Magic, Kings & Queens

Summary: Mendanbar also had excellent taste in choosing his Queen.


This is a lovely remix of my tiny three-sentence ficlet a real magic, in which Cimorene has a somewhat overwhelming first day as Queen of the Enchanted Forest. My remixer wrote from the Forest's own perspective, and captures Wrede's tone delightfully! :D


And now I'm going to attempt answering comments on my NFE fic. Here's hoping I won't run out of either spoons or coherent words. *crosses fingers*
