9:28pm: Muse List
Muse List )
Some of these are probably unlikely because the stronger muse will likely win a choice between two or three - Molly, Edmund, and Anthony, for example.

And Peter Pettigrew should probably be on a retired list, at least for the canon version.

3:07am: Trouble: Chrestomanci Fic
...not even an entire scene really, just a bit of a missing moment/alternate POV on one of my favorite scenes from The Lives of Christopher Chant. I have a document of "Chrestomanci Scraps" made up of lines, paragraphs, partial scenes and headcanon. That is where this comes from. For those who haven't read the book, this falls in between "Homecoming" and "Every Beating Heart."

ETA: Edited quite a bit as of 23 October 2018, and again 31 October 2018.

Trouble: Chrestomanci Fic
Who: Miss Rosalie, Flavian Temple, Dr. Paul Simonson, Mordecai Roberts/Tacroy, Christopher Chant, Millie/The Goddess, Gabriel DeWitt
What: "You have too much fun breaking all the rules."
When: Another mostly-missing Moment, from The Lives of Christopher Chant
Where: Chrestomanci Castle
Warnings: Spoilers, angst, UST

If she could have spoken with Christopher without ever laying eyes on the owner of that voice again, she would have. )

11:35pm: Reasonable Expectation: Chapter One: Narnia Fic
I'm still on my hiatus, but I have a moment for this. After posting bits and pieces out of order, here is the full first chapter. This follows "Damascus Road" and "His Throne Is Upholden," and references events in those stories, but can be read alone. It alternates points of view, so chapter two will be Peter's. Also, I have my Narnia calendar somewhere if anyone desperately wants to know my logic for it. The only month named in canon is Greenroof.

Reasonable Expectation: Chapter One
Who: Edmund Pevensie, Peter Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie, Thornbut, various OCs and semi-canon characters
What: Six months following the Battle of Beruna, the new kings and queens continue to hunt down the remnants of the White Witch's followers and restore to Narnia what was lost or buried during her rule. The Pevensies must sharpen both their weapons and their wits, and Edmund must learn and come to terms with what happened at the Stone Table.
When: late Ripening (Roughly early September), NT 1000
Where: Cair Paravel and Northern Narnia.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Some fantasy violence.

it was easier, in some ways, to learn to become a better swordsman than to become a better person )

6:48am: Homecoming: Chrestomanci Fic
When I was thirteen before I knew what fanfiction was, I was imagining this scene in my head. Mordecai's first words date from then. Thank you to [info]lahiri for encouraging me to write the rest of it.

Homecoming: Chrestomanci Fic
Who: Mordecai Roberts/Tacroy, Miss Rosalie, Frederick Parkinson, Dr. Paul Simonson, Christopher Chant, Gabriel Dewitt
What: A rude awakening, a reckoning, and a defining of loyalties.
When: Mostly-missing Moment, from The Lives of Christopher Chant
Where: The World Edge and Chrestomanci Castle
Warnings: Spoilers, angst.

You caught me in the act, after all. )

7:43am: Fanfic Rec
It was fun (and really sad at the same time) to see this since it has been my headcanon that Mordecai and his father had a conversation like this at some point.

Metaphysical Fingerprints
"What does it mean if you don't have a soul?"

4:53am: Fanfic Rec
Saving this for future reading because there are not enough Mordecai fics out there, and I grab them when I can.

Eleven Echoes
"One thing about him was Eleven to the bone: he lied. Not just to de Witt, not just to Christopher, but to himself. Constantly. Every waking minute, and many sleeping."

9:17am: Promoting
I have been looking forward to this for a long time: [info]revoltmods For those who've played with Marcus Cole, one of the NPC leaders is Delenn from Babylon 5, and one of the others is Aragorn from Lord of the Rings.

Think Knights of the Round Table IN SPACE.

You know you want to join that group.

Besides Marcus, I'm app-ing an Edmund Pevensie as an early arrival who has been around for about two years, and Mordecai Roberts.

This will surprise no one.

11:38am: Something About the Eyes: Narnia Fic
This aims for bookverse, bridging the gap in my stories between “My Soul Can Reach” and “Damascus Road,” but could probably fit into the movieverse. With a nod to [info]bing.

Something About the Eyes
Who: Digory Kirke, Edmund Pevensie
What: Professor Kirke on the Pevensies.
When: During The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, after Edmund's first trip to Narnia but before all four children go through.
Where: The wardrobe room, at Professor Kirke's house in Coombe Halt.
Rating: G
Warnings: Foreshadowing? This is your child on Turkish Delight.

This wasn't his time. )

Linking here to save.

15th October 2017

7:57pm: Omitted: Chrestomanci Fic
Who: Mordecai Roberts, Miss Rosalie
What: An alternate POV on "By Omission." This is part of a narrative I wrote for Save Atlantis. The rest of it veers into an AU, but this is depressingly canon. I like it anyway?
When: Four years prior to The Lives of Christopher Chant.
Where: An opera house in London
Rating: PG
Warnings: Angst; spoilers for The Lives of Christopher Chant (like pretty much every Mordecai fic I write ever)

Mordecai would never be a very good man. )

16th September 2017

12:04pm: Every Beating Heart: Chrestomanci Fic
Who: Mordecai Roberts, Miss Rosalie
What: During the long night under siege, absolutely nothing is resolved.
When: Missing moment The Lives of Christopher Chant
Where: The grounds of Chrestomanci Castle
Warnings: Angst, spoilers

“A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. A solemn consideration, when I enter a great city by night, that every one of those darkly clustered houses encloses its own secret; that every room in every one of them encloses its own secret; that every beating heart in the hundreds of thousands of breasts there, is, in some of its imaginings, a secret to the heart nearest it!”

~ Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

They said confession was good for the soul. Mordecai wouldn't know. )
