damkianna: A cap of Jinora from The Legend of Korra, giving advice. (Then she jumped into a volcano.)
[personal profile] damkianna
Today has been a whirlwind of awesome and I've spent half of it asleep - I haven't had a chance to delve properly into the Yuletide archive, but I have had the chance to read my gift:

Empress of Sand and Water (24166 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dune Series - Frank Herbert
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Paul Atreides/Chani/Irulan Corrino
Characters: Irulan Corrino, Paul Atreides, Chani
Summary: After the Harkonnen attack on the Atreides, Irulan is sent to Arrakis to represent the emperor's interests. She hears about this mysterious figure, this Fremen messiah, this Mahdi - and she wonders if this might be the turning point of everything. Canon-divergent AU of Dune.

IT IS THE MOST AMAZING FIC IN THE WORLD AND I LOVE IT. For the first Yuletide gift I will ever receive, this is the most tremendous and beautiful and fantastic story in the world; it is exactly what I wanted and someone wrote it for me and it's just. I CAN'T. ♥ If you are at all a Dune fan I urge you to give it a look (a long look, IT IS 24K WORDS), it is Irulan and Chani and Paul and things are the same but different and Chani is the Mahdi and it's PERFECT.
