Sorry. Radio silence will continue for a fair while yet. I expect to have reasonable amounts of writing time in the latter half of the year.

In the meantime, here's a Gont domesticity Earthsea fic that I enjoyed, but didn't want to link during Yuletide as they were too close to my own story. In fact it was very influential on mine.

The Dragon Year, by [personal profile] firerose.
Earthsea - Ursula K. Le Guin
Flint, Tenar
Flint can no more comprehend his wife of a week than talk to a dragon

On the first day of Yuletide, a writer gave to me…

The Heirs of English Magic
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke
Arabella Strange, Lady Pole, Stephen Black, Sir Walter Pole, John Segundus, King George III

My prompt for this was:

Arabella, Lady Pole and Stephen were thrown together in their horrible, weird prison and enchantment. I'd love to have some post-novel fic in which they are in some way thrown together again, and deal with each other as intelligent, free people who are still variously marked by their experience.


So here we have them, as politicians, reformers, ethicists, educators, and, well, in Stephen's case of course, as a king. An especially nice touch is the parallel concerns of the people and England and the fae: just as the English (largely, you'll see exceptions in the fic) don't want to share Arabella and Lady Pole's fate, nor do Stephen's subjects want to be at the beck and call of every magician in England.

The whole reason I signed up for Yuletide was reading fic in fandoms I love, and discovering how much of it was written for Yuletide!

A quick pre-Yuletide roundup:

I enjoyed [personal profile] tree_and_leaf's And After Darkness, Light a lot, which really crosses two fandoms: Narnia and Anglo-Catholicism. The latter is not a community I'm actually involved in, but I have family and friends who have been deeply involved as ministers and lay leaders, one of whom died this year, and so it reminds me of a lot of people I have affection for.
