There are many meanings behind the word fae, and it is imperative to know them well and not confuse one for another, especially when wandering in the deep places of the world...especially when wandering under the full-born strangeness of the moon.

The above-fae name themselves the Court of a Thousand Dewdrops, so named for that fleeting morning moment when the sun catches the wet of the night and makes it shine, just before the heat of the day burns it away.

The below-fae find this ridiculous. If they call themselves anything, it is only the Many or the Multitude, as they outnumber the above-fae a hundred to one, their penchant for orgies spreading their kind up and down the land in an inexorable tide.

Humankind has a different meaning altogether for fae. They know not of what they speak, only that the word brings a vision of ethereal beauty to their minds, something much-desired and always just out of reach.

This is the tale of the rift between the Court and the Many – the rift, and those who dared cross it.

Title: Promises to Keep - a 5.22 Coda

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

Doing two characters per fandom, but not next to each other. We'll see how it goes. Also, I'm totally ignoring the wordcount and just making them as small as possible.

1. Dean Winchester (SPN)
2. Arthur Pendragon (Merlin)
3. Jack Harkness (Torchwood)
4. Jack Sparrow (PotC)
5. Malcom Reynolds (Firefly)
6. Sam Winchester (SPN)
7. Merlin (Merlin)
8. Ianto Jones (Torchwood)
9. Hector Barbossa (PotC)
10.River Tam (Firefly)

This is not what I should be writing right now )

That was fun, although some of them were harder than I thought they'd be!

It's been a while since I wrote anything, so I feel like this is a bit clunky. Gotta start somewhere, though.

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

I’m doing this meme again, because I really enjoyed it the first time and I think I got some neat drabbles out of it. I’m not planning to do any specific pairing or fandom, but we’ll see what happens. These are totally unedited for everything except typos, so expect them to be a bit rougher than my usual work.

ALSO: I’m not really keeping to the time limit. I just want to be writing, and if I’ve got a good thing going, I’m not going to stop myself.

ALSO: I only did five, because it was late and I needed sleep.

Author’s notes for all the pieces follow at the end.

WARNINGS: (Lightly) implied incest, (lightly) implied underage, absolutely no pr0n, unedited writing, a bad joke, wordiness, AU, (non-explicit) prostitution, crazy angel theories that even I don’t understand, implied death, songs from musicals, and a mention of Glenn Beck.

I made a cover for the novel I'm going to be working on during NaNo. It's actually in the form of a movie poster, but I rather like it despite the kind of craptastic quality.

Clicky! )

Yay Supernatural! I actually don't have much to say about tonight's episode, besides the fact that our boys look completely amazing in black and white! I mean, even prettier than usual. Especially Jensen. The lack of color makes you really appreciate the shape and lines in his face. I swear, that boy really must have been sent from heaven! I love the light, funny episodes of Supernatural, and I definitely enjoyed this one as well.

Also: I've been getting really into podfic lately, and I thought I might try it out. This is a test recording just to see if I could get the technical side to work at all. I read a really short Labyrinth drabble that I wrote a while back as my test text. I used my mp3 player to do the recording, then uploaded the file to It's a .wav file, which I know is not the best, but that's what I can do for now. Plus, I've never recorded anything before, so the quality might be crap. But it worked, and if you'd like to give it a listen, here it is. I really enjoy reading aloud, so I'm probably going to play around some more with this.

ETA: Ok, this is fun. I may have recorded a few more of my pieces... *is quite possibly totally obsessed now* I found a way to convert the files to the mp3 format, and I switched to a different hosting site that I like better. So everything's download-only now.

Found this challenge on the NaNo forums and couldn't resist. I chose a random opening line from the Adopt-A-Line thread and will be starting at 8:30. I'll update in this post.

8244 / 10000 words. 82% done!

^^That's the final tally. Didn't make the goal, but I wrote a hell of a lot, and it's a complete story, beginning to end - despite being very silly and very bad. That was INTENSE!

It's that time of year again! Every year at about this time, I start to get revved up for NaNo...despite the fact that it doesn't start for another three months. I'm getting ready to start my planning for this year's novel, but I'm not quite there yet. So to help pass the time, I'm going to go through this year's forums and collect my favorite bits in this post. Cause I'm obsessed like that! I'm also going to put random writing-related stuff here. So this post is pretty much just for me - I don't see anyone else being particularly interested.

Ok, this became more my gratuitous "Yay Nano!" post more than anything else...

One of the things that Chris Baty advises doing in his NaNo how-to book is making two lists: one of things you love to see in books and one of things you hate to see. It's surprisingly easy to forget which is which when you're deep in the middle of writing something. Plus, it's a great resource to look at when you're not sure what you want to be writing. I feel like I may have done this before, but I can't remember, so I'm doing it again. This is just a beginning and will be added to as I think of more.

This got really long... )
sulwen: (green)
So I'm working on a Peter/Susan fic for one of my auction winners, and though I love the idea and I'm having a lot of fun writing it so far, it's downright weird writing het. On the one hand, it's nice because I've always been better at writing from a female point of view. On the other hand...I'm just so damn used to slash. The chemistry of it's all different.

It's good for me as a writer, though. I mean, I love het. My all-time favorite OTP is het. I used to write it all the time. I still do in my original fic. Just...somewhere along the way, writing fic began to equal writing slash.

Still, I adore this pairing, and it's angsty and kinky enough to keep me VERY interested. Plus it takes place in between LWW and PC, and so I can reference all sorts of fun stuff from the undescribed-by-canon period when they were ruling in Narnia - which I've totally always wanted to explore more.

This is why I need people to prompt me more often - it breaks me out of my usual rut, and I'm always happy when I realize that there's so much more out there.

I didn't pick a particular fandom, just went with whatever came to mind. These are entirely unedited, so they're a bit rough. This is purely what came out of my head and onto the page. I've included bits of lyrics for those unfamiliar with the songs.

Title: Marked
Author: Sulwen
Rating: NC-17
Warning: Slightly rough sex, minor bloodplay
Pairing: Shawn Michaels/Chris Jericho
Word Count: 2143
Summary: Shawn reminisces about the past and decides to take control of the future. Basically, blatant sex with plot thrown in.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the order of the words.
Author’s note: Takes place immediately after this week's Raw (4/28/08). This story is written in character (as if the on-screen characters and storylines were real). I've always loved this pairing, and I wish there was more fic about them. With them being brought back together lately, I couldn't resist writing something. If anyone has good recs for this pairing, I'd love to read them!

Title: Two DX Drabbles
Pairing(s): HHH/HBK
Rating: #1 is PG, #2 is R for language
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the order of the words.
Summary: Drabble #1 - Takes place the night DX reunited on Raw. Shawn runs out to save Hunter from the Spirit Squad, with Vince at the top of the ramp calling the shots. Pretty much AU.
Drabble #2 - Inspired by jadedblue's idea of Randy and Edge as Hunter and Shawn's former lovers.

Title: DX Drabble #3
Pairing(s): HHH/HBK
Rating: PG for a little cursing.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the order of the words.
Summary: Shawn gets revenge against Rated RKO. Hunter watches. Though you don't have to read them to read this one, this fic is a companion work to the two drabbles I posted a few months ago.

Summary: Shameless handcuff smut. Light’s mind never stops working, even in the most distracting of circumstances.

Author's Note: This was written for a challenge here:

The prompt was "Ouran High School Host Club - Tamaki and/or another character, superstar"

I had to edit the version I posted for the challenge because it was too long, so this is the full version. This is my first fic in this fandom (and my first fic for ANY anime), so please excuse any newbie mistakes you may see!
