damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, sweeping Bolin off his feet. (What did I think?!)
[personal profile] damkianna
I wrote four stories for Yuletide this year, probably because I was so full of nervous energy from signing up that I just couldn't stop with one.

so may the chains fall from your feet (1897 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dangerous Beauty (1998)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Veronica Franco/Marco Venier
Characters: Veronica Franco, Marco Venier
Summary: Stepping out of the Inquisition courthouse brought Veronica to tears. Post-movie: Veronica and Marco, and the things that come after.

My assignment fic! For [archiveofourown.org profile] Shadowcat, who wanted, terrifyingly, "a happy scene" - nothing like my usual epics at all! But I did my best and I think it turned out fairly well; it was definitely a bit tough for me, but I got to rewatch the movie and read all about Veronica Franco, and overall it was a lovely first Yuletide assignment.

there will be killing ('til the score is paid) (1390 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Twisted Princess (Disney Fanart)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Fa Mulan (Twisted Disney Princesses - Jeftoon01)
Summary: Mulan doesn't ever regret it. AU of Jeftoon's backstory: something helps Mulan, but it isn't exactly Mushu. Warnings: a fair bit of violence, kind of dark. (But not exactly unhappy? IDEK.)

For [archiveofourown.org profile] Ryuutchi, who posted a lovely letter with a Twisted Princesses prompt and then apparently edited both signup and letter ... after the day where I went through all the letters and copied out the prompts I was thinking about treating. /o\ That'll teach me to not check back! She was super gracious about her extra surprising fic, and I got the chance to try my hand at horror - not my usual thing, but everybody who's commented has been incredibly encouraging.

Where the Path May Lead (there is no path) (16719 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Underworld (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Erika/Selene (Underworld)
Characters: Erika (Underworld), Selene (Underworld), Amelia (Underworld), Lucian (Underworld), Kahn (Underworld), Michael Corvin, Kraven (Underworld)
Summary: "You know it's forbidden," Erika shouts at Selene's back, and then wonders why she bothered. AU: Erika's too curious about why Selene is leaving the coven archives in such a hurry to just let it go.

Hey look I rewrote a movie. I guess I had to get back into my comfort zone somehow. :D For [archiveofourown.org profile] havocthecat, whose letter caught my eye very early on. I ended on a moment that's analogous to the end of the movie, but there's more to the story in my head. (And that might even make it out of my head at some point.)

she wrote upon it (8471 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Postman (1997)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Ford Lincoln Mercury, Ponytail Girl (Carrier 18), Original Characters
Summary: Becka falls down. That's how it starts. One big long missing scene: how Carrier 18 joined the postal service of the Restored United States, and how Ford Lincoln Mercury built a post office.

For [archiveofourown.org profile] staranise, whose letter encapsulated how I feel about The Postman in a paragraph. (Honestly, that movie should be about Ford Lincoln Mercury; he does about six times as much postmanning as the Postman.) I am astounded by the response to this story, which is the only fic on the AO3 for this movie - I was expecting a recip comment and next to nothing else, and am blown away by how kind everyone has been.

And! I would like to re-advertise my gift, plus the extra Madness snippet I received: [archiveofourown.org profile] Sheeana wrote me both the gorgeous 24k Empress of Sand and Water, in which Chani is the Mahdi, Irulan is sent to Arrakis by her father, and they get married and share Paul and save the universe; and the much shorter but equally lovely Water-Envy, Chani and Irulan by the ocean. I am just overwhelmed with joy, they are fantastic stories and there is even a chance of a sequel! ♥.♥ I CAN'T. THE HAPPIEST BEARS.

And now to bed; I was up until about 3 a.m. washing New Year's dishes and woke much earlier than I would have liked today, so I am totally exhausted in the best way.
