So I wrote a fic. Saphira cheerleaded the fic on LJ and a couple of folk chimed in here and there and offered encouragement. I actually found this way of writing was a fun way of writing. Having an audience and someone to talk about the bits kept me focused. I’m kind of thinking having an audience list/cheerleader filter could be a good way of writing. It wouldn’t just be fanfic but original stuff, which I am thinking more and more about.

Any rate, I’ve started posting the fleshed and polished version of The Black Herald to AO3. This fic is based on Mercedes Lackey’s Heralds of Valdemar series, which I’ve enjoyed for decades.

Writing the story was a total indulgence. I enjoyed wallowing in some tropes like a happy pig in the mud. I make no apologies. It is an interesting thing about fanfic that we have our favs, in this case platonic bed sharing. There is also a lot of food *rolls eyes*. I am thinking that the next fic I write will have no bloody food in it. On the subject of ‘bloody’ one thing I could indulge in this story was the colloquial language – that was fun.

However, despite the fun aspects (on my part), the fic is pretty dark in places, definitely read the warnings and check the tags. If you have any questions feel free to ask. There is a happy ending, as I couldn’t write a story without a happy ending.

“Anyone got any lock picks?” Steve asked, regarding the barred door of their cage.

On cue, Danny said,

“We’re in the FreaKING Jungle – no one expects doors!”

“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition,” Chin said under his breath.

“What? What? What did you say?” Danny pounced on Chin.

Okay, Steve thought, time to do something improbable – Oooh, how about an explosion? He patted his cargo pants pockets. Note to self: there has to be a reason for all these pockets. Also, next time, because there will be a next time, bring lock picks.


There, I fixed it.

Notes: beta’d by the wonderful springwoof.

Happy birthday to springwood. Happy birthday to dear springwoof.


The sea; the depths.
The fear.


The old sailors tell stories. They speak of the depths where the unknown hands lie. Steve has his own stories. The unknown and knowing depths of a shark’s dead eye in dark waters best not spoken of. The shark swims past him, rough skin scraping against Steve’s torso as he hangs in the water waiting for death.

His stories are not as terrifying as the old sailors’: the knocking on the outside of a claustrophobic submarine at two thousand metres, and the voices, always voices, sibilant in the depths.

All the sailors -- the old ones -- have stories. The young sailors are dead.

This snippet came to me, and I wrote it since that’s what I do. And I wanted to get it down.

Advisory? skip Things left unresolved. Betrayal?

I’m counting this as part of my NaNoWriMo word count even if it’s not remotely linked to the main thing I’m working on!

I don’t believe any warnings are necessary or there are triggering elements within.
