dear author

General likes: interesting dynamics and character interplay, pining, use of historical fact/interesting information, character based fic, smut, dubcon (although please please write according to your level of comfort), polyamory, pining, AUs, happiness without too much saccharine
General dislikes: torture, first person narrative, unhappy endings, jellyfish!

More specificities/ optional details:
Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty-- two scenes in this production made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end: Aurora's dance with Caradoc in the garden, and Count Lilac's embrace with Leo at the gates. I adore how twisted the power dynamics are, how Count Lilac is a little ambiguous, how much Aurora desires Caradoc, and how full of fear that desire is (also, ummmmm somnophilia? *hides*). I would love something exploring this, at just about any level. Go as dark or as light as you want, because while I am deeply into the kinkier aspects of the production, I also love how light and free Aurora and Leo's courtship is, and how passionate. Something with just the two of them would also be lovely!

Rivers of London: give me strong women. Give me all the rivers, and how they live and love. Give me magic, and all the ways it could possibly work, the way architecture, art and music are so powerful. I love everyone in the series, so pick a character and do whatever your beautiful generous heart desires! If you are so inclined, Simone and her sisters are particular favourites, but go where you will, I will love it!

BBC Historical Farm RPF: My face when I saw that this had been nominated was a picture! As I said, filthy threesome would be amazing, but if not, just a kind of slice of life would be lovely! and as for time travel, I just love the idea of all of them being transported somewhere for real and being competent and managing to survive, but also clinging together, making their way through the world as a team. Something found familyish would be lovely too!

Henry IV: oh man, Hotspur and Henry. My two favourite orbiting stars. I would love something about their relationship, moments in which they could maybe have become friends, without the weight of parental expectations and a crown that was maybe a tiny bit stolen! As slashy or gen as you like, and follow canon or veer wildly off course!

If you have any questions/despairing wails, drunktuesdaze or eeames on tumblr are probably the best people to liaise with. And whatever you do, have fun with it! I hope you enjoy writing!

Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my last post.

Of feeling better, and lovely lovely cats.Collapse )
Now, for yuletide! I had an absolute blast this year, I really really enjoyed writing. My assignee, GloriaMundi, requested a fic about Loki, from Joanne Harris's Runemarks series, which is a YA series based in a post-ragnarok world, in a sort-of-british, medievalish world. It's a brilliant read, I'd highly recommend it. I wrote a retelling of a Norse story about the giant, Þjazi, from skaldskaparmal, which wasboth good fun and bloody difficult, because translating the mythological to the close third person means you suddenly have to consider internal consistency and motivations. I was incredibly lucky to havebelmanoir doing a rockstar job at betaing, because my copping-out handwaving wasn't going to cut it! Here's the fic: Arnsugr, or How Skadi Got Her Grudge. It was lovely to write for a truly tiny fandom- it meant I didn't get as many hits etc, but it felt so lovely to be able to write something that filled a bit of a gap!

Now the fic I got was superb. I am so astounded with the quality of this. Mellish wrote How the Piper Played, for Fire and Hemlock, by Diana Wynne Jones. I adore this. I have read it so many times, and am in awe of it, because it captures the beautiful underwaterlike tone of the novel, and uses Thomas Lynne's persective to add this sharper edge of confusion, yearning and bittersweetness. It's clever, elegant and a really satisfying read, originally structured and told. I couldn't have asked for a better fic.

New fic, for avengers reverse big bang

Artist:korilian
Author: llassah
Fic Title: Meltwater
Pairing(s): none
Rating: PG-13
Universe: AU, but more film than comic based. Some Norse mythology included.
Word Count: 9.228

Summary: Loki Laufeyson slips between the worlds unnoticed, unmissed, curious as a child. Small and weak as an infant, he was left in the temple to perish, but survived the night. His only desire is for the freedom to pass through worlds unseen, but when the Jotnar invade Midgard and he is caught up in events beyond his control, he finds himself both having and needing more.
Notes: I am indebted to belmanoir, for a beta that was thorough, thoughtful, helpful and inspirational. I am also indebted to korilian, for the beauty of the artwork and the possibilities of the prompt. Thank you to you both.

New fic, for avengers reverse big bang

This fic has eaten my brain. I am so relieved it is written! It has been a joy and a delight, truly.

Artist:
tipitina
Author:llassah
Fic Title: keep your heart around (you might need it someday)
Pairing(s): Tony/Pepper
Rating: Teen and up (for language and violence)
Universe: Marvel Movie 'Verse
Word Count: 34000
Warnings: No warnings apply
Summary: Tony Stark finds himself becoming a de-aged Loki Odinsson's temporarily designated parental figure, through no fault of his own. Responsible superhero co-parenting doesn't just involve feeding, housing and clothing a tiny Asgardian, it involves rubber ducks, transdimensional vortexes at bathtime, fruit parties, pictures of robots that draw other robots and hoverboards (eventually), as the team keep Loki safe while they look for a solution.
Notes: I am indebted to tipitina, whose idea this originally was, and whose wonderful art and encouragement throughout have made this fic an absolute joy to write. I am also indebted to the mods of the Avengers Reverse Big Bang, who set this whole thing off. I've had a blast. This story would be a heck of a lot worse without the betaing skills of bananahater336, whose insightful and kind comments and patience and tolerance as I piled more words on have helped me immensely. Thank you, all of you.
