Okay, so this journal is no longer under construction, or rather I've given up on uploading all of my fic.

General information: This journal is the ficjournal of me, kazaera. It is replacing ishnaru, which I shared with nymeria, cryogenia and maypirate. Because of differing fandoms, styles and outputs (i.e. they wrote loads, I wrote and write next to nothing) I decided it'd probably be better if I struck out on my own.

If you are interested in me as a person, you're in the wrong place - this is the fic area. Feel free to hop over to kazaera instead; it's friends-locked, but if you drop a comment and say where you found me and why you want to friend me, I will probably friend you. That said, I mainly write about RL, and writing about RL involves a lot of me being emo and a lot of chattering on about graduate-level mathematics, so why would you want to.

Fics posted here: Currently posted are, I believe, all of my non-WiP works since at least August 2005. With one exception, WiP works are either on f-lock on my LJ or somewhere on my computer. If there is interest (comment on this post if you're interested?), I might consider uploading them here as well under f-lock. At the moment, I am reluctant because due to past experience I'm quite certain most if not all of them will never be touched again, and posting them here seems as if it would be getting people's hopes up. This is the reason I really don't want to post them publicly either.

It also feels vaguely ridiculous to post ne'er-to-be-completed WiP one-shots.

Fics not posted here: As mentioned, WiPs aren't posted here, nor is my early fic (meaning pre-FMA fandom; I started writing fanfic in 2002.) This is because that stuff really mostly sucks. A lot of it is up on FFN here and there's some on kazaera before I started locking things, if you're really, really that curious. At the moment, I have no intention of uploading any of it here because, well, it sucks.

Fandom and writing: Is completely and entirely random. No, seriously, *I* have no idea what I'm going to write and when, or what fandom I'll get into next. The one thing I can say is that I predominantly write gen, have never finished a non-oneshot to date, and am completely incapable of staying in one fandom for a longer stretch of time. As of the time of writing, my fandoms of the last four months or so went Morrowind->Highlander->Merlin->Hetalia->Merlin, so really, I have nooo idea.

Friending policy: At the moment, none of the entries are f-locked; all the same, I'll friend anyone who friends me. If you want to, feel free to friend me - I will not look at any of your friends-locked entries. I am also considering f-locking NC-17 fic and/or WiPs; at the moment, you'll find neither on this journal, but that may change.

Feedback: Is loved and squeed over and makes me very happy indeed. Please do comment on any of my entries, no matter how long ago I wrote the fic (although with the really old ones, I make no guarantee of quality). I can't guarantee I'll always reply, but I will do my best. :)

Concrit is welcomed, as I like to improve; I promise not to flame anyone and to take what you say under serious consideration. Although as said, concrit on my older works is a bit useless since they're only up for posterity anyway.

System: All entries are tagged with fandom, characters, pairing (if applicable, which in the vast majority of cases it isn't) and series, as well as genre if it's something unusual (crossover, crack, that kind of thing. Note that I have a quite narrow definition of crack; currently, the only fic tagged that is one I wrote in a programming language). There is a gigantically unwieldy list of tags in the journal; feel free to browse. Further cross-indexing is being considered.

Spelling: British. I actually speak a hybrid British/American/German-accent dialect of English, but try to be consistent in my spelling.

Title: The Art of Long-Distance Grandparenting
Fandom: Silmarillion
Characters: Idril, Tuor, Anairë, Glorfindel, Finrod, (minorly) Elrond, Gil-galad, original characters
Series: None
Summary: Why did Glorfindel return to Middle-earth? Maybe the Valar decided they needed a messenger. Maybe he felt he still had something to do there and begged them to let him return. Or maybe it went something like this...

It's the early Second Age and Idril is worried about her grandsons. In the course of this she waylays new arrivals to Valinor, tries to find her footing with her own grandmother, schemes with Tuor, Finrod and Glorfindel, and finally sets a plan into motion.
Warnings: Discussions of canonical character death + hypothetical death
Notes: Many thanks go to [personal profile] krait for an excellent beta!

Quenya name translations and further notes at the end.

The worst part of coming to Valinor, Eglainion decided, was the relatives.Collapse )

Title: Knifework
Fandom: Silmarillion
Characters: Elrin (aka genderswapped f!Elrond), Maedhros
Series: prospectively part of an untitled female!Elrond AU
Warnings: Some disturbing talk about violence and (canonical) death, not particularly graphic
Summary: A female!Elrond AU. Somewhere in the wilderness of Beleriand, Maedhros and Elrin talk weapons training, differences in combat-related gender roles between the Noldor and the Sindar, and mutual family history.
Misc. Information: There may be more in this 'verse, but in any case I think this stands on its own. Linguistic notes at the end.

One day, Maedhros says he will teach her to fight with a knife.Collapse )

This is for onedeadbunny. These are the things I'd like to write, in varying degrees of possible success. This might just replace my old plot-bunny post on kazaera.

A variety of bunnies, ordered by fandom for the most partCollapse )

Man, I skipped a lot here and there. I need to go back and edi-

*looks up*

This.

Is.

Nearly four thousand words long.

OH MY GOD WHAT.

Title: Sleeper in the Cave - Chapter 1
Fandom: Morrowind
Series: Sleeper in the Cave
Warnings: Will be on each chapter.
Summary: Adryn really doesn't know what she's doing on this land with oversized wildlife, natives who think giant fleas are good forms of transport, and Imperial spymasters so skooma-addled they think she's spy material, but she has every intention of surviving the rampant idiocy of everyone around her. However, she doesn't know that by setting foot on the island she's set into motion events that cannot be stopped...

In this chapter, Adryn arrives in Seyda Neen and tries to figure out where she is, how she got here, and why are there giant fleas oh god-.
Word count: 16126 in two parts because LJ doesn't like chapters that big.
Misc. Information:

In which Adryn arrives in Seyda Neen and meets the localsCollapse )

Title: Sleeper in the Cave (masterpost)
Fandom: Morrowind
Series: Sleeper in the Cave
Warnings: Will be on each chapter.
Summary: Adryn really doesn't know what she's doing on this land with oversized wildlife, natives who think giant fleas are good forms of transport, and Imperial spymasters so skooma-addled they think she's spy material, but she has every intention of surviving the rampant stupidity of everyone around her. However, she doesn't know that by setting foot on the island she's set into motion events that cannot be stopped...
Misc. Information: This is my epic Morrowind novelisation of epic which I've been writing on and off for the past five years. I usually try not to post WiPs, but I have ~50k words of this already written and - more to the point - it will never be finished. I haven't abandoned it and can't see myself ever doing so, but my characters are sufficiently verbose and the plot is sufficiently long-running that there is no chance in hell I'll ever get to the end (although I certainly hope to finish plot arcs). If that puts you off, don't read; otherwise, I hope you enjoy it anyway.

I'm aware that Morrowind isn't a canon a lot of people are familiar with (it's a video game published by Bethesda in 2002), but due to the nature of the plot I think it reads much more like original fantasy than fanfic and you should be able to follow it quite well even if you don't know the canon - so don't let that put you off!

Title: Am prionnsa, an t-amadan agus na meirlich
Fandom: Merlin (BBC, that is)
Characters: Arthur, Merlin, assorted bandits.
Series: I have a vague idea for a sequel, but none for now.
Warnings: Umm, spoilers for eps... up to 1x11, I think. Mention of torture. Other than that, mainly the boys being themselves.
Misc. Information: In which there is a plethora of exceedingly incompetent bandits, Merlin flails, and Arthur fails at emotional comprehension. AKA: An Arthur-finds-out-about-Merlin's-magic fic. [summary edited 3.11.09 to remove ableist language - I am *so sorry* about that :(]

This can be read as gen or pre-slash depending on which you like; the prospective sequel would be slash, so.

Also shit, I'm going to have to go rework my tags as character name = fandom name. :(

The whole thing is, of course, entirely Merlin's fault.Collapse )

x-posting to merlinxarthur (is so slashy enough) and merlinfic.

Title: Climate change
Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Characters: Mainly Vexen, with the rest of the original six popping up in varying places. Although Lexaeus never really appears overtly.
Series: None
Warnings: ...suffering Vexen. Pretty much nothing else.
Misc. Information: This is cygna_hime's very very belated birthday fic. Her request was Woobie Vexen; I hope I've done it justice.

Afterwards, one of the things they all agree on is that it was Xigbar's fault.Collapse )

Title: Independent Study
Fandom: Kingdom Hearts/Harry Potter
Characters: Zexion, Tom Riddle, Xigbar
Series: None
Warnings: There is Tom Riddle/Zexion. There is sex! Not particularly graphic, but it is there - I'd rate this R. There are also way too many mind-games, which really should not be a surprise. Also, gratuitous Xigbar.
Misc. Information: Set quite a few years before KH1.

Tom decides that if he is going to be stuck doing an independent study project, he may as well pick a subject somehow useful for his main goal - immortality. Nobodies seem like a good option...


Let the games begin.Collapse )
