I'm just going to keep chipping away at this, and maybe I'll manage to finish it before I die of old age or maybe I won't /o\.

( Follow the fake cut to Chapter 2 of Book Three! )

NEXT YEAR I'LL BE QUICKER. I HOPE.

WELL THAT TOOK A WHILE. Posted on Saturday evening, and throwing a link on DW totally slipped my mind! But then I figured I should post one anyway, just in case anybody waits for updates here instead of via AO3 subscription. And the "1/13" is totally optimism, probably this is going to expand into a 14th chapter just like Book Two. OH WELL.
damkianna: Fanart of Katara in the Avatar state. (Only Waterbender in the South Pole.)
At around 48,000 words, this chapter needed to be cut into two, but I wanted to post both parts at the same time instead of letting this book keep dragging on. SO.

( Follow the fake cut to Chapter 13! )

Chapter 13 Part 2 aka Chapter 14 is up also, so you can read straight through to the conclusion of Book Two (!!!).

Sometimes it felt like this book was NEVER going to end, and it's easily the longest and most complicated thing I've ever written (or it will be until I write Book Three, I guess). But it's finally complete, and let me tell you, I am THRILLED about that - and looking forward to Book Three SO MUCH. \o/

So I didn't quite manage to get this posted in January the way I was hoping, but given that last time I was a year late, two days really isn't that bad. :D

Take that, real life.
damkianna: Fanart of Katara in the Avatar state. (Only Waterbender in the South Pole.)
Man, you can really tell when I'm feeling guilty about fic, because I vanish. /o\

Anyway! At extremely long last, the new chapter (!) is available ...

( beyond the fake fake cut )

... or where everyone's most likely to read it anyway @ AO3!

We're in the double digits now, which means only sixty thousand words a little more left to go! \o/
damkianna: Fanart of Katara in the Avatar state. (Only Waterbender in the South Pole.)
So I was all, there's no OUaT! What will I post about??? And then suddenly I wrote a zillion words last week, and so in honor of Korra airing this weekend (KORRA YES OMG YES) here's a chapter. \o/

( Follow the fake cut for fic! )

Or read it on the AO3!
damkianna: A cap of Kyoshi from Avatar: The Last Airbender, in the Avatar State. (I would not sit passively.)
Title: went with her and is with her still
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Rating: PG-13ish? Violence, definitely, though not too explicit.
Characters/Pairing: OC/51st Earth King, I suppose? Kuei is the only genuinely canonical character in here, and he is four years old at the oldest.
Wordcount: 3,800. (LOOK LOOK I WROTE ... PRETTY SHORT FIC!)
Summary: One person Kuei's mother might have been, and five ways she might have saved him. (Also posted @ the AO3.)
Disclaimer: Places and people you recognize from canon are not mine.
Acknowledgements: [personal profile] idriya, of course, was my beta; and MAJOR thanks to [livejournal.com profile] seta_suzume/[archiveofourown.org profile] Suzume, for her most excellent donation and most excellent prompts! (Another fic may be forthcoming, in fact, but that one's turning into something of an epic.)

Other Notes! )

damkianna: A cap of the Reverend Mother from the Dune miniseries, with accompanying text: "Space cowgirl." (Default)
Title: The Blow of a Knife
Fandom: Children of Dune (2003 miniseries)
Rating: PGish? Some attempted violence, some achieved violence, but all of it is either brief or inexplicit. Or both.
Characters/Pairing: Ensemble: Chani, Irulan, Alia, Jessica, Duncan 2.0, plus assorted minor canon characters and an OC or two. Canonical past relationships, hints of Alia/Duncan 2.0, and in my head the whole thing has come to serve as pre-Chani/Irulan but that could just be me.
Wordcount: 21,000.
Summary: Chani feels it, when Muad'dib dies. Midseries AU: the attempt to assassinate Paul with the stoneburner is successful. Written for Round 2 of [community profile] ladiesbigbang. (Also @ AO3.)
Disclaimer: Places and people you recognize from canon are not mine. Some scenes diverge only a little, so some dialogue (particularly when Jessica first meets Duncan 2.0) is essentially from the miniseries. Title from the first quote below, which appears in Dune, I believe.
Acknowledgements: Thanks immensely to [personal profile] idriya, who tells me things I don't want to hear even though I'm whiny and horrible to her after, and whom I hear spent a lot of time wrapped in a sheet to complete my beautiful complement art - which is unfortunately delayed due to RL issues, but I will embed/link when it's finished! And, of course, the impetus to write and complete this story came from the [community profile] ladiesbigbang challenge, which is great and awesome and great and everyone should sign up for it. :D

Fic! )

So, what I meant by "tonight" was obviously "tomorrow night". :D But! In my continued quest to conquer the alphabet one fandom at a time, I can now cross off the letter B. \o/

Title: Got the Magic (Everybody Wants Some Presto)
Fandom: Burn Notice
Rating: PGish? Some swearing; I don't think there's anything that requires a warning.
Characters/Pairing: Ensemble: Michael, Fiona, Sam, Madeline, Barry, and Lucy Chen, plus minor characters from canon.
Wordcount: Not quite 11,000 words.
Summary: Fiona is part leprechaun - enough to be short, enough to love shoes, and enough that she can sometimes follow rainbows to hidden stashes of M16s. Magic!AU of the series pilot, for my genretwisting bingo "contemporary fantasy" square. (Also @ AO3.)
Disclaimer: Places and people you recognize from canon are not mine. In this case, because this is an AU of a specific episode, some dialogue was also taken or adapted right from the show. Title from the lyrics to B.O.B's "Magic".
Acknowledgements: As always, I owe [personal profile] idriya big time for reading through this for me! And, of course, to [personal profile] ilthit, for running the [community profile] genretwisting bingo challenge that prompted this story.

Other Notes; kind of long! )

Ugh, why do I even have an RL, it only thwarts me! /o\ Clearly I am too much of a failure to handle a two-week schedule with any kind of grace unless I am way ahead. But anyway!

Omgggggg weather stop it. Early last week, I woke up to a massive rolling clap of thunder; Saturday (yes, that last one right before Easter), by contrast, it was SNOWING. And sticking. D: And now it's thunderstorming again.

Easter was awesome - my family is not particularly religious, so, while we did watch The Ten Commandments Saturday night, Easter itself was mostly about how much sugar we could cram into ourselves in a day. :D And, for me, how much fic I could write, because I reeeeeeeally wanted to get Chapter 2 out on time. Also, I managed to pound another full-length chapter outline out of my Book Two notes, and I am mentally braving the wilds of Book Three. \o/

But! More interestingly, [personal profile] idriya gave me more art, and I finally got around to uploading it to my LJ Scrapbook, because she is too lazy to post anything herself. :P

And Yi Lun taking her sweet time painting over the Blue Spirit graffiti. )

Hearts FOREVER. I mean, she painted the wood grain on the shutters, for god's sake. If she weren't doing these for me, I would hate her. :D (Tagging these with the ItO tag, because they are for Book One, and also I need to remember to embed them later. And! Not crossposting, because, 3W4DW.)
