Fandom Snowflake: Day 1

I'm belatedly deciding to do the [community profile] snowflake_challenge after all. Just as it's about to finish. (Why not?)

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

This is my second year doing this question, so I had a think how to go about it slightly differently, and came up with a sort of theme. I don't think it helps to explain, but I suppose these are all fics that I'm very curious as to what people make of them. Some of them have been understandably disregarded by the universe, one of them was for Yuletide, so it got read, but here they are. They are fics, of course, that I do still like (most of the time), or I wouldn't be putting them here:

A Tear the Sun Lets Fall (4540 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sapphire and Steel
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Bronze & Copper (Sapphire & Steel)
Characters: Bronze (Sapphire and Steel), Copper (Sapphire and Steel), Iron (Sapphire & Steel)
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Pre-Series, Community: hc_bingo, Elemental Weirdness
Summary: For once, Bronze is afraid, and something more than time has been broken.

I don't know how much sense this one makes, but it's Sapphire and Steel, so I was determined just to go ahead and do what I was doing without explanation. Which, when you're writing pre-series fic (by a couple of thousand years) involving non-canonical Elements (original characters, therefore, although I tend to forget that with Elements and think they're sort of just semi-canonical instead), is probably a little unwise. (At least it got me a bingo square for [community profile] hc_bingo.)

Vigil (1246 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Measure for Measure - Shakespeare
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Isabella/Duke Vincentio
Characters: Isabella (Measure for Measure), Duke Vincentio
Summary: Isabella is a woman who may never be a nun; the Duke a man who is not in truth a monk. Stranger alliances have been made.

I wrote this as a Yuletide treat in 2012, because apparently I had much stronger thoughts and feelings about Measure for Measure than I realised, and also why - while definitely not in the romantic sense - the Duke and Isabella are not at all the strangest match made at the end. (Spoiler! This Shakespeare play contains multiple random marriages, most of which will make the audience wonder what the hell just happened. Whoops, sorry.)

there was a darkness, call it solitude (4470 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Midnight Is a Place - Joan Aiken, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase Sequence - Joan Aiken
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Julian Oakapple/Denzil Murgatroyd
Characters: Julian Oakapple, Randolph Grimsby, Lucas Bell, Denzil Murgatroyd
Additional Tags: Angst, Snow
Summary: Julian Oakapple returns to Midnight Court for the first time in twenty years.

And if I write obscure and depressing fic for children's books, what do I expect? But I like this one still, even though it's older than the other two.

And also Intersection - one of my 100 Element Prompts fics, the nearest I'm probably likely to get to a sex scene (though given that it involves Silver, I wouldn't swear that's what happens by any means!). But pretty scary for me to write, even so. (Actually, Intersection and Vigil sort of coincided and one enabled me to write the other, which is a little weird.)

(Probably, in this vague category in my head I'm drawing these fics from, the purest examples would be Trick of the Light (The Lining Is Silver Remix) and Grief, Observed, my Susan (Narnia) fic, but I feel the universe answered my curiosity about those two quite satisfactorily already.)

(Hmm, in a rec-your-own-fanwork post, is it wise just to emphasise your weirdness and obscurity again? Oh, well... ;-p)

Aw, but we all know you love 'weird and obscure' (your words, not mine!), so we don't take any notice of such remarks. *hugs*

I think I'm going to start doing it today too. I'm a rebel with poor time management skills.

Heh, and why not? :-)

'Intersection' is one of my favourites of your S&S fics:) I sort of referenced it in my S&S crossover as you know. But I am rubbish at reviews.

Aw, thank you! And I do remember the reference! I'm not sure I'm all that good at reviews, either. :-)
