Fic! That I Wrote!

Today was the day for reveals for the 2014 Narnia Fic Exchange and for NFE Madness, so let's talk about fic.

First off, I received the most gorgeous story:

As The Waves Make Towards The Pebbl'd Shore (3928 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Caspian/Peter Pevensie
Characters: Caspian (Narnia), Peter Pevensie
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Time Shenanigans
Summary:

Once you are dead, you cannot want wrong things anymore. Caspian wants another 5 minutes on a round world.



Ruth put so much care and effort into making this story perfect for me, and I just LOVE it! Peter/Caspian! My beloved OTP! Getting a chance at a happy-for-a-while, if not a happy ever after! It's perfect and sweet, and she used so much of my headcanon in this (Peter being a musician, and Caspian an artist!) and it just made me grin from ear to ear as I read it.



Okay, on to the fic I wrote.

Endless Roads to Travel, Endless Lives to Live (3353 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Polly Plummer
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe
Summary:

Three adventures Polly Plummer never had, and two she gave to others.



This was written for [personal profile] redsnake05 for this prompt: I can't imagine Polly settling down to an ordinary life after her adventures. I'd be happy to see her back in England figuring out who she is and what she's doing, or perhaps a canon divergence where she and Digory get to have more adventures in Narnia or in other worlds. Perhaps there is a threat to the Tree during the Golden Age, and she and Digory get sent back to deal with it? Feel free to include other characters or OCs as needed.

I was so happy with this prompt! I have a lot of headcanon for Polly (OBVIOUSLY) and I always wanted her to have more adventures after The Magician's Nephew. Also, I didn't like that last glimpse of Polly we had in The Last Battle, so I wanted to write something that eased that a bit. I had SO MUCH FUN writing this. It could have been a lot longer, if I had more time - I wanted Polly to have a few more adventures - but as it was, it worked as a kind of five things fic: three adventures for Polly, and two that she had a hand in. I wanted to spend much more time on the day sorcery, because that was delightful to think about magical uses for. I feel like I could write a whole book about that. Maybe someday!



For NFE Madness I wrote a little ficlet for [personal profile] vialethe:

The World Spins Madly On (555 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis, The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Maglor/Susan Pevensie
Characters: Susan Pevensie, Maglor
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Crossover, Crossover Pairings
Summary:

Just a quick ficlet of Susan Pevensie and Maglor living an eternal life



Because she loves Susan/Maglor and she's my partner in crime in crack ships. I had fun with this, because I love that ship too, and it's just fun to think of Susan and Maglor living forever with each other. I wanted to make this longer too, but oh, my terrible time management skills!

A snippet from the ongoing Narnia/ASOIAF crossover crackfic. Susan Pevensie and Jon Snow, being feelsy and sassy after some post-reunion sexytimes.

I posted a short bit of this on tumblr, this is the longer version... )

For a story I'm not writing, I spend a lot of time working on it. :D

A little more of Susan Pevensie in Westeros, at the Wall with Jon Snow. This is for [personal profile] edenfalling who asked for Susan/Jon Snow, family. I posted this on tumblr last night, but it's a little expanded now.

More of that fic I'm not writing... )

So here's another scene from the Narnia/ASOIAF fic I'm not writing, where Susan ends up at the Wall, when Jon Snow finds and sounds her horn...

Sometimes I write scenes out of order... )

Unbetaed, obviously.

So I am totally not writing a Narnia/ASOIAF crossover where Susan Pevensie ends up in Westeros after the trainwreck.

I mean, I keep telling myself that and yet... )

Unbetaed, obviously.

Remix Reveals!

Remix writers were revealed yesterday, so time to chat about that! :D

First up, two of my stories were remixed, one for Remix proper and one for Remix Madness.

You Were A Vampire (The Belong to the Shadows remix) (1055 words) by WingedFlight
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Caspian/Susan Pevensie
Characters: Caspian (Narnia), Peter Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie
Additional Tags: vampire!AU
Summary:

His people have always belonged to the shadows.



Winged did such a great job expanding some of my 3 Sentence Ficathon fills about vampire-Caspian, and his interactions with each of the Pevensies. I love how she flipped the POV, and how she really ramped up the sense of dread, and Caspian's ruthlessness in taking what he wants. Delightfully creepy!



The Palace Beautiful (Valley of the Shadow of Death Remix) (464 words) by MiraMira
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Marmee March, Elizabeth March
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Space, Artificial Intelligence, Family, Grief/Mourning, Wordcount: 100-500
Summary:

Marmee is truly glad and grateful to have *all* her daughters with her on the journey to their new home, in spirit if not body. And yet, there are still things she misses.



Oh man, an unexpected treat! MiraMira expands on my Little Women in Spaaaaaaaace AU, by giving us Marmee's POV on Beth's situation. I love it - Marmee is sensible and strong and heartbroken, all at once, just as you'd expect. Really well done!

*************

And now the stories I wrote!

Howl When We're Apart (This One's For the The Girls Remix) (2150 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire - George R. R. Martin
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: sansa stark & arya stark
Characters: Arya Stark, Sansa Stark
Additional Tags: Remix, Remix Redux, Alternate Universe, Future Fic, Female-Centric, Female Characters
Summary:

Another girl on a horse, riding through the winds and snows of winter as only Northern girls could.



This is a remix of comradeocean's The Ballad of the Blacksmith Prince. When I was looking at her stories and seeing what I could remix, the note at the end of this one, asking for a Sansa-and-Arya-centric remix hit me, and I wanted to see if I could pull it off.

This got a little long... )

My second story was a pinch-hit!

It's Hard Out There for a Princess (The Princess Peony Pavane) (2296 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Edmund Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Princess Peony (OC)
Additional Tags: Character Study, POV Female Character
Summary:

Even a Dim Princess has her reasons, despite what a Just King might believe.



I got this pinch-hit at the last minute, but it took me only a few minutes to decide which story of Ruth's I was going to Remix.

More ramblings... )

I had two other stories I was going to post for Remix Madness (another Narnia one and another ASOIAF one! I am sadly predictable :D), but with the pinch-hit, I didn't have time to finish them properly, so I guess I'll keep those for next year.

Yes, it's time for the annual NFE! If you want to write and receive a Narnia fic, you can sign up here. It's your standard fic exchange, minimum of 1000 words, and because it's the summer and we're lazy, you have a lot of time to write. :D

Narnia fic: Some Kind of Rebirth

Hey, it's my birthday. Have a ficlet:


Title: Some Kind of Rebirth
Author: [personal profile] snacky / [livejournal.com profile] snacky / [archiveofourown.org profile] Snacky
Fandom: The Chronicles of Narnia
Warnings/Spoilers: Post-LB, assumes knowledge of the whole series
Summary: Susan and her new daughter
Notes: This was written for the NFFR Revolution prompt "birth." No birth metaphors here, folks! I am sadly literal, so this is a story about an actual birth. Title from The Pretenders.

Susan wakes slowly, wincing at the bone-deep soreness she feels in every inch of her body... )

On AO3, if you prefer: Some Kind of Rebirth

All the stories for this year's Narnia Fic Exchange have been posted, and the authors have been revealed!

I wrote A Parfit Gentil Knight (at AO3 for TastyAsItGets. She wanted a Game of Thrones crossover or an unlikely pairing. I tried the GoT crossover, but it wasn't very good, so she ended up with the unlikely pairing of Reepicheep/Susan. NO BESTIALITY, GUYS, I PROMISE.

I received the greatest story ever for my prompt: rise after a thousand years by [profile] ilysia_039. It's a gorgeous, vivid, terrifying story of Susan, the desert, and ancient magic. It is a story that is all at once fierce, wild, and about transformation and power and respect and it is exactly what I wanted.

I am biased, of course, because I mod the exchange, but we had so many great stories this year! We had a bunch of returning writers, and a lot of new ones, and they all did an awesome job with their prompts. You should check them out!

Narnia fic: A Parfit Gentil Knight

Title: A Parfit Gentil Knight
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: Assumes familiarity with all the books. Reepichceep/Susan romance – mostly one-sided and unrequited. A mix of bookverse and movieverse – book references, but uses events from the Prince Caspian movie.
Summary: Reepicheep always wanted to be a Knight of Narnia, in the service of the Gentle Queen.
Author's notes: Written for the 2012 Narnia Fic Exchange, for TastyAsItGets, who wanted "an unlikely pairing, something ridiculous like Puddleglum/Lady of the Green Kirtle, except not that." Thanks to Jess for the beta.

A lesson in Narnian art

Earlier on Twitter:

@bedlamsbard: Some stuff always triggers my Narnia random academia stuff hindbrain. Now thinking of famous Narnian paintings.

@snacky: I misread that as "famous Narnian pairings" started thinking of stories of famous Narnian lovers in epic poetry, plays & song.

@bedlamsbard: Heh! Gosh, I can't even begin to think of famous Narnian pairings. Edmund and his mistresses. Caspian and the Star's Daughter.

@snacky: One of the Narnian's bards' favorites: The Tale of the High King and Seven Would-be Wives. :D

@bedlamsbard: And the romance that no one ever talks about: Caspian the Conqueror and his Narnian wife.

@bedlamsbard: A famous Narnian painting about a pairing! King Edmund sitting in the throne room, listening to a suit but looking at his mistress.

@snacky: Or Caspian and the Star's Daughter on their wedding night, with the stars shining down on them.

More famous Narnian paintings! )

Thanks to my betas, [personal profile] unsuitenedt and [personal profile] rthstewart, for all their help. And thanks to [personal profile] edenfalling for such a great prompt! I'd had this story in mind for a long time, so when I saw it on your list of prompts, I jumped on it.

First, I received Suffer A Sea Change, a post-Dawn Treader-movie fic, with Liliandil explaining her quest to Gael. It was written for me by the lovely [personal profile] animus_wyrmis.
