fic corner opens & "reveals"

The exchange at fic corner has opened!

I will own that I yelped when I refreshed and saw all the "mystery works" magically turn to fics. It's like staring at the Christmas tree, blinking, and then suddenly having the tree buried in presents.

First, my gift! I requested all sorts of things in the Old Kingdom fandom, and Burning_Nightingale totally came through for me. It's a terrific exploration of how Sanar and Ryelle--the twins from the Clayr that Sabriel first meets outside of Belisaere--grew up. It also addresses some other questions I hadn't even though of; what happens when the Clayr have male children? They likely won't have the Sight, what will they do?

Spread Your (Paper)Wings (3443 words) by Burning_Nightingale

Fandom: Old Kingdom - Garth Nix
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: n/a

Additional Tags: OC, Worldbuilding, Backstory, Friendship, Best Friends

A story told with the voice of a forgotten minority; this is the tale of Errigan, a male Clayr.



--

I wrote a fic in the same fandom. (That's the second time now!) It's about Sabriel and her post-Sabriel (the book) duties. This is the first fic I've written in a long time that I like. I think it's because it's--at a tiny four thousand words--long enough and has a plot. Writing it was still piecemeal in chunks, but I like how it came out.

By breakwater and river (4150 words) by ivy
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Old Kingdom - Garth Nix
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sabriel (Old Kingdom), Elder (Old Kingdom), Touchstone (Old Kingdom), Original Characters
Additional Tags: Action/Adventure, Fights, Work, Missing Scene, Between Novels, Canon Compliant, Magic, Blood
Summary:

Before leaving Nestowe, Sabriel promised that she would come back and help them, and she keeps her promises. Fighting the Dead is what the Abhorsen is meant to do, after all.



I just got home, so I haven't had time to read anything else, but there's a good hundred fic in the collection about children/YA literature, so I definitely encourage you to take a gander!

(On LJ, this is my thousandth post!)
