fialleril: [Sigyn has a crush on all the Lokis] (Lady Loki)
Or, Trickster Courtship, A Slice-of-Life

I blame/credit [ profile] hermaion for the fact that I finally finished this one: our discussion of our mutual love for milkmaid!Loki definitely encouraged me.

Title: The Raven and the Milkmaid
Characters: Sigyn, Loki, Heimdall, Freyja, Sleipnir
Rating: PG I guess?
Word Count: 5,267
Summary: Freyja's necklace has been stolen, Heimdall is on the hunt for Loki, and Sigyn is just trying to milk the cows in peace. And maybe outsmart a trickster while she's at it.
Warnings: No real warnings, but lots of shameless flirting. Also shapeshifting.
Notes: Set pretty soon after Something there is that doesn't love a wall, with a few references to that story, but you don't really need to read it first. More notes at the end of the fic.

fialleril: [when the time comes to let it go, to let it go] (to live in this world)
Third in my series of character studies of Loki's monster children using riddles from Tolkien's The Hobbit. This one is Hel's (which you can tell because it's definitely the longest).

Previous parts: Fenrir | Jormungand

Title: comes first and follows after
Characters: Hel
Rating: PG
Word Count: 863
Summary: Hel is born in the shadow between the stars.
Warnings: passing reference to potential body horror Loki eating the witch's heart (highlight to read)
Notes: Hopefully it will be clear enough, but Hel refers to Angrboda as "mother" and Loki as "mama" (I've combined a couple of myths here - highlight that warning text and you'll know which ones).

comes first and follows after )
fialleril: [here there be monsters] (mystery and wonder)
Remember that series of character studies on Loki's children I started, using Tolkien's riddles from The Hobbit as a lens? Here is the second one, about Jormungand, which was definitely the trickiest one to write.

(The first one, about Fenrir, is here.)

Title: and yet never grows
Characters: Jormungand
Rating: PG
Word Count: 555
Summary: His father hates walls, but Jormungand laughs at them.
Notes: The riddle for this one isn't quite as obvious, but I am using the actual answer to the riddle, "mountains," as a metonym for "the foundations of the earth." The title is a bit delightfully ironic, since of course Jormungand is famous for his never ending growth spurts.

and yet never grows )
fialleril: [a sword age, a wolf age] (wolf)
Yes, more Norse myth stuff.

I have started a series of short fics about each of Loki's three monster children, taking a metaphorical look at them and riffing on Tolkien's riddles from The Hobbit. It started with this one, when I realized that this riddle fit Fenrir quite well, and its answer gave me a whole new way of understanding the all-devouring wolf and his meaning and importance in the mythology.

There will eventually be a riddle fic for Jormungand and Hel as well, and most likely a bonus one for Loki too. (Go ahead, guess which riddle from The Hobbit he is. I think it's actually pretty easy.)

Title: this thing all things devours
Characters: Fenrir
Rating: PG
Word Count: 570
Summary: Fenrir remembers everything.
Warnings: references to canon torture
Notes: Yes, all the verb tenses are deliberate. This was loads of fun.

this thing all things devours )
fialleril: [a fire that will burn the world] (Sigyn and Loki)
So here is a fic that I actually posted on and AO3 quite a while ago, but now that I'm back to LJ I wanted to post here, too.

Title: the shining mead is brewed
Characters: Narvi, Vali, Hel
Rating: PG
Word Count: 910
Summary: Oh, thinks Narvi, and rubs at his stomach. When he pulls his hand back, there’s blood on his fingers and coated thick under his nails. I’ve had the strangest dream.
Warnings: character death, implied torture
Notes: This is a slightly surreal take on what happens to Loki and Sigyn's sons after they're killed when Loki is bound. I especially had fun fleshing out my view of Hel (both person and place).

the shining mead is brewed )
fialleril: [Hades and Persephone] (katabasis)
Third of my drabbles for [ profile] frostbit_sky, and this one also got out of hand. I blame tricksters.

Title: normalcy
Characters: Anabasis!verse Anakin, Padmé, and Obi-Wan
Timeframe: AU of Anabasis, set after anything that's happened in the fic so far, but not too much
Rating: G
Prompt: Anabasis!Anakin is released from prison for a day and he and Padmé paint the apartment and cook, trying to have some normalcy.
Notes: Unfortunately for everyone involved, Anakin's definition of "normalcy" includes trolling Obi-Wan. Also, it is worth noting that Padmé may very well know more than she is letting on.

normalcy. 400 words. )
fialleril: [my eyes are yours; they are not blue, but they're wide open] (martyr Kitster)
Second of my five drabbles for [ profile] frostbit_sky. This one got out of hand and turned into a ficlet instead, but in my defense, I don't think I could have done much of anything that made sense with the prompt in only 100 words.

Title: for the sake of ten righteous
Characters: Anakin and Kitster
Timeframe: totally AU, but Anakin and Kitster are in their twenties
Rating: G
Prompt: Star Wars meets Sodom and Gomorrah, as initially discussed here
Notes: For reference, the biblical story is found in Genesis 18:16-33, which you can read here if you wish.
This is set in some sort of undefined AU where Anakin never left Tatooine, and where his power in the Force has apparently manifested itself as a deep connection to Tatooine itself, so he's almost elemental here.
Also, plentiful references to the Tatooine playwright Kanim.

for the sake of ten righteous. 550 words. )
fialleril: [heliotrope] (Padme)
[ profile] frostbit_sky won a set of five drabbles from me for [ profile] help_midwest, and here is the first! Thanks for your generous donation!

Title: home is where
Characters: Padmé and Sola
Timeframe: after Padmé has been appointed Senator and before she leaves for Coruscant
Rating: G
Prompt: Sola and Padmé sister bonding. You can come up with the story and setting.

home is where. 100 words. )
fialleril: [the fires and the black river of loss whose other side is salvation] (everything I have ever learned)
Title: the birds have all flown away
Characters: Nerthus (Freyr and Freyja's mother), implied Loki at the end
Rating: G
Word Count: 200
Summary: They call her a widow now, although her husband still lives.
Warnings: Background incest (Njord/Nerthus)
Notes: Companion piece to Numbered Among the Aesir

the birds have all flown away )
fialleril: [when the time comes to let it go, to let it go] (to live in this world)
I had intended to write about the theft of Thor's hammer and Thor's adventures as a bride in Jotunheim, but as Freyja was involved I got caught up in her and ended up writing a character study, which also turned into a slice-of-life fic once Loki got himself involved (as he usually does). Anyway the point is that Freyja is the actual greatest, and here is a fic.

Title: Numbered Among the Aesir
Characters: Freyja, Loki (Freyja/everyone)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1636
Summary: For all their differences, they have a certain understanding: Freyja of the Vanir and Loki of the Jotuns.
Warnings: implied incest (Freyja/Freyr), possible values dissonance
Notes: Title is from Gylfaginning in reference to Loki. Further notes at the end of the fic.

Numbered Among the Aesir )
fialleril: [another armed occupation is not freedom] (Cham Syndulla)
Remember that alphabet fic meme waaaaaaay back in the day?

Found this lying around on my computer and realized I'd never actually gotten around to posting it. It's not the greatest, but I like some things about it, and I don't think I can play with it any more, so - here ya go, internet!

Title: faith
Characters: Cham Syndulla, Gobi, Orn Free Taa
Timeframe: prior to the Clone Wars show
Rating: PG
Summary: In the beginning, he’d believed in a lot of things.
Warnings: References to political violence, slavery, and systematized oppression.
Notes: [ profile] glassapples requested "faith + Cham Syndulla" way back on that meme, so here it is.

faith. 590 words. )
fialleril: [Something there is that doesn't love a wall] (Sleipnir's mothers)
Norse myth fic!

I am pretty sure this is the longest one shot I've ever written. For [ profile] veriond, [ profile] starfoozle, and [ profile] dagor_hamster. Shapeshifting, genderqueer Loki and her son Sleipnir, all in one fic, with bonus Sigyn/Loki UST.

Title: Something there is that doesn’t love a wall
Characters: Sigyn, Loki, Sleipnir, Odin, Thor, Heimdall
Rating: PG
Word Count: 6659
Summary: “I have little love for walls,” Loki says. “They’re meant only to keep what’s interesting out, or worse, to keep the monsters in.”
Notes: Set right after the building of Asgard's wall, and mainly references that myth. With apologies to Robert Frost. Huge thanks to [ profile] starfoozle for the beta.

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall )
fialleril: [Mama always said they were trouble] (dead boys bearing fruit)
Haven't even started packing for my trip yet, and already I've written a prompt. Wow, I feel so productive.

This is for [ profile] sehre, who requested Hermes, Persephone, and the river Styx. Also for [ profile] yavie_namarie, who wanted some Hades/Persephone where Hades is sympathetic. That may well get its own fill later, but in the meantime this is definitely applicable.

Title: The Cattle of the Sun
Characters: Persephone, Hermes, Hades (Persephone/Hades)
Rating: G
Word Count: 575
Summary: Hermes is a scoundrel, a trickster, and a thief, and Persephone would never want to change that. She is getting tired of the cows, though.
Notes: References are made to a number of myths, but particularly the Homeric Hymn to Hermes. This is ridiculously schmoopy. Also, somewhat dependent on my conviction that Hades is every bit as much a trickster as Hermes, just quieter about it. Depending on your interpretation of the mythology, this might be borderline crack.

The Cattle of the Sun )
fialleril: [my favorite shapeshifting genderqueer trickster] (Loki)
And no one cares! Whoops. Oh well, I guess this is my life now. At least the muse is back.

Title: both/and
Characters: Loki, Thor, Njord
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Summary: Loki is a shapeshifting genderqueer trickster. These things happen.
Warning: For the Aesir being awful to anyone who doesn't fit neatly within the gender binary.
Notes: Inspired by a couple of comment threads in this post, about Loki's queerness and relationship to the entire concept of gender. Also by Lokasenna, in which Loki insults the other gods, and their standard comeback is basically, "Well, at least I'm not a womanish god who's borne children!" This is just a short drabble and only scratches the surface of the concept, but I may expand on it someday.

both/and )
fialleril: [a fire that will burn the world] (Sigyn and Loki)
Talked myself into it after that last post. But wow it feels good to write something again.

Title: Faithful Sigyn
Characters: Sigyn, Loki, mention of Odin
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 961
Summary: Sigyn is a badass. A screw destiny take on the binding of Loki and the coming of Ragnarok.
Warnings: Since this takes place after the binding of Loki, reference is made to many of the horrible things that happened then. So, potential trigger warning for torture, murder, child abuse, and gore.
Notes: This probably won't make much sense without at least a cursory familiarity with the myths, but if you really want to read it anyway, I'd recommend checking out my last post here for background first.

Faithful Sigyn )
fialleril: [and I love you, random citizen] (hey)
Well I did not expect my first Megamind fic to be about Metro Man, but what can you do. Someday I will write that meta about how he is actually secretly awesome and...maybe my favorite superhero? But that day is not today. Today, there is fic.

Title: with great power
Rating: G
Summary: For his thirty-fourth birthday, Metro Man tried being Steve again.
Notes: Mainly set pre-movie, but there are SPOILERS.

Also, I know Metro Man's civilian name in the early script was Wayne Scott, but I kind of hate that script, and since almost none of it survived (thank goodness!) into the final movie, I feel I can ignore it. Besides, I feel strongly that superheroes should have alliterative names. So, his name is Steve Scott. (And yeah, there's a homage in there.)

with great power. 933 words. )
fialleril: [the fires and the black river of loss whose other side is salvation] (Sherlock Holmes)
What's this? A fanfic for a fanfic? Is it a Holmes fanfic or a Barrie fanfic? Does it count as a crossover? Who can say!

Title: Admirable Liknesses
Characters: John, Sherlock, Mrs. Hudson
Timeframe: pretty much any time Sherlock is bored
Genre: crack
Rating: PG
Word Count: 576
Summary: It was his custom of a summer evening to fire round my head, just shaving my face, until he had made a photograph of me on the opposite wall, and it is a slight proof of his skill that many of these portraits in pistol shots are considered admirable likenesses. - J.M. Barrie, The Adventure of the Two Collaborators
Notes: With apologies to Mr. Barrie, who did it better.

Admirable Likenesses )
fialleril: [it's time for a few small repairs, she said] (Molly)
Yes, more Sherlock fic. I have no idea where this sudden burst of creativity came from, but I suspect this may be the last of it for a while. I hope not, though.

Title: it's time for a few small repairs, she said
Characters: Molly, Sherlock, a bit of John, mention of Jim
Timeframe: set AFTER the Great Game, so spoilers!
Genre: gen, character sketch
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1719

Summary: Molly came home with a vengeance.

Warnings: vague references to past child abuse, a lot of scenes taking place in a morgue
Notes: Title and summary stolen from Shawn Colvin's "Sunny Came Home." Yes, it's another of those "how Molly got her groove back" stories. But really, after the horrible way she was treated in the show, I don't think there can ever be too many of those fics. Here's my contribution.

Also, not Brit-picked, so feel free to point out any spectacular fail on my part!

it's time for a few small repairs, she said )
fialleril: [Sherlock thinks your PWP is dull] (bored now)
I write asexual comedies that are in no way based on the germ of personal experience. No indeed. None of that here.

Maybe I should just admit defeat and call this a series. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Ace Detective. (You like what I did there? Oh the cleverness of me.) Although, if this keeps up, I'm going to need a Watson icon that says, "Damn it, I'm a doctor, not your sex ed teacher!"

All of which is to say...uh, the kink meme made me do it!

Title: Kid in a Candy Store
Characters: asexual!Sherlock, mortified!John, OC shop attendant
Genre: technically gen
Rating: PG-13, I guess, since it takes place in a sex shop. But everything that happens is pretty G.
Word Count: 1319
Summary: “I’m very disappointed in the adult world, John. Your brains are even more infantile than I’d thought.”
Warnings: sex toys, somewhat oblivious!Sherlock, and extreme amounts of embarrassment for poor John
Notes: Written for this prompt at [ profile] sherlockbbc_fic:

Sherlock in a sex shop. Maybe it's for a case, maybe he has to replace his riding crop, maybe he's just curious... I don't care. Just have him in a sex shop poking around and asking questions to the bewildered shop assistants. May or may not include mortified John.

Somebody else suggested this should include asexual!Sherlock, and, well...this happened.

Kid in a Candy Store )
fialleril: [the fires and the black river of loss whose other side is salvation] (Holmes and Watson)
The promised full-length Sherlock fic. This was pretty much inevitable, really.

Title: However Improbable
Characters: John, Sherlock, Sarah, Molly
Timeframe: technically set after "The Great Game," but no spoilers, really
Genre: gen, flirting at the border with crack
Rating: PG I guess? Ha ha I have no idea how to rate this one.
Word Count: 3404
Summary: In which John tries to deduce Sherlock's sexuality, and Sherlock has much more important things on his mind. Like omelets and false moustaches.
Warnings: Er, porn? Only, not at all in the way you might think. Also, body parts in the refrigerator, and other unsanitary places.
Notes: This is by far the most self-indulgent thing I have ever written. I regret nothing.
Actual story notes at the end of the fic.

Huge thanks to [ profile] kittyjimjams and [ profile] albumsontheside for Britpicking and betaing!
