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. )

alphabet fic at last

fialleril: [primum non nocere] (Barriss Offee)
It seems that all of my alphabet-prompt fics are determined to be longer than drabbles, so it may take me a while!

[ profile] charmisjess asked for "Barriss Offee + no." Anabasis!Barriss seems to be my default these days, and the prompt offered an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

Title: No
Characters: Barriss, Anakin/Vader
Setting: 4 months before Anabasis, in the Jedi Temple
Summary: Set between There Are Things They Haven't Told You and Anabasis proper, this is how Barriss went from treating an unconscious Vader and struggling with her desire to kill him to the conflicted, almost-friendship she has with Anakin in Anabasis.
Rating: PG-13

No )
fialleril: [and not even time for breakfast] (six impossible things)
Hi there, internet, I'm back from my silent retreat! What's that you say? You didn't know I was going on a silent retreat? Yes, well, that's because...well, I didn't have time to post about it, okay. Anyway, I am back now! Many enjoyable things occurred on said retreat, but I will not bore you with them here.

Suffice it to say, apparently I connect with the divine through writing crack fic. I can't say I'm really surprised.

(This is also my first ever crossover fic. Ha ha of course it is utterly ridiculous!)

It started innocently enough, with me thinking about how I've left poor Anabasis!Anakin languishing in prison, without so much as a cup of tea, for far too long. (What, you ask, can the Jedi not prepare tea? Well, yes, they can, and do. But they're under no obligation to provide it for a man who committed genocide against them.) And then, well, this happened.

Title: Mad Tzai Party (ha ha this title is THE WORST)
Fandoms: Anabasis!Star Wars and Burton!Alice in Wonderland
Characters: Anakin, Barriss, and the usual mad tea party suspects
Setting: IF this were actually to fit into the Anabasis storyline, it would be soon after the last chapter I posted. However, it is also total crack. Even if some angst did sneak in.
Summary: The thing is, Anakin really just wanted some tea.
Rating: PG? Because why not?
Notes: So, this fic will make no sense at all if you're not familiar with my Anabasis 'verse, but I think it will make sense if you haven't seen Burton's Alice. My characterization of the mad tea party-ers is based on Burton's movie, but it's general enough (and spoiler-free enough), that I think it would probably make sense with just a general pop culture familiarity with the Alice cast.

this way lies madness )

Every now and then I pop over to [ profile] sw_anabasis, look at my icons there, and think, "Ugh, that is just not on!" And then I go on an icon-making spree and replace them all.

So. That happened again.

[ profile] albumsontheside, I've posted your requested Anabasis Anakin/Padmé damage!fluff finally. It...ended up being more damage than fluff! (I am not surprised! This relationship is so warped. SO WARPED.)

Anyway, it is here! Scheherazade @ [ profile] sw_anabasis

Well, it's not damage!fluff and it's not the next chapter, but at least I've posted something on my Anabasis journal. Also at [ profile] swficchallenge , but who's counting?

Title: Beautiful Things
Author: [ profile] fialleril
Characters: Palo
Setting: thirteen years before Anabasis
Summary: A young Palo searches for his medium and his calling.
Rating: G
Notes: It has been way too long since I've posted anything here! This is essentially a character study, but it's something!

off to retreat

fialleril: [when the time comes to let it go, to let it go] (to live in this world)
Hey folks, I'm off to a staff retreat this afternoon, and won't have internet access for a couple of days, most likely.

But I wanted to wish [ profile] yenneffer a happy belated birthday!

Also, I have promised [ profile] albumsontheside some Anakin/Padme fluff in return for her successful completion of her essays on Thomas Hardy. Specifically, Anabasis!Anakin/Padme fluff. Yes, really. I like to call it damage!fluff. Anyway, I'm hoping to do a little writing on this retreat, so hopefully I can post it when I get back.

I also still have to finish my [ profile] help_haiti fic. Yes, I know. This is why I shouldn't do request fics with deadlines. :(
fialleril: [primum non nocere] (Barriss Offee)
At long last, here is [ profile] lumy12's icon fic about Barriss. Of course it ended up being about Anabasis!Barriss, because apparently that's how my mind works these days.

Title: There Are Things They Haven't Told You
Author: [ profile] fialleril
Characters: Barriss, Anakin/Vader in a coma
Setting: 8 months before Anabasis, in the Jedi Temple
Summary: Barriss is assigned to bring an injured Sith Lord back from the brink of death, and faces a question with no real answer.
Rating: PG-13 for implications
Notes: written for [ profile] lumy12's icon fic request

I wrote this little drabble for [ profile] starfoozle to cheer her up, and then thought I'd share it. Finally some genuine Palo/Riveth from me. It's about time, I know.

Link goes to my Anabasis LJ.

Title: Tongues of Men and Angels
Author: [ profile] fialleril
Characters: Palo, Riveth (Palo/Riveth)
Setting: three years before Anabasis, directly after Poetry, in the Imperial prison on Tanaab

fialleril: [Persephone in autumn, on the cusp of a change] (Anabasis!Padme)
My first icon request fic, this one for [ profile] haydens_angel81. Inevitably it turned into an Anabasis universe fic. This is also something I've been promising [ profile] albumsontheside for a while.

Title: Pomegranate
Author: [ profile] fialleril
Characters: Padmé, Anakin/Vader
Setting: one and a half years before Anabasis, in Darth Vader's apartments on Coruscant
Summary: Padmé makes a decision she may regret. (Or, the infamous how-they-got-together fic.)
Rating: PG-13
Notes: written for [ profile] haydens_angel81's icon fic request

Title: The Lesser of Evils

But apparently I was deceived!

Yes, this is another "sorry I've been gone forever" post. Things have been mad crazy at work: we had to let several people go, and now everyone's moving offices so that they'll all be on one floor. So I've spent most of this week packing and moving boxes, cataloging records, and doing massive amounts of recycling. It was fairly exhausting work, and there was a lot of dust involved (as often happens in moving). Now, I'm pretty allergic to dust, and I now have a mild, allergy-induced sinus infection. Ugh.

I watched The Sound of Music last night with my friends, because Crystal had never seen it, either. And I realized that I kind of ship Maria with the Baroness. Um... But seriously, they're both awesome, and they'd be awesome together and probably help each other grow, and besides, none of the men in this movie are awesome enough for either of them. So it's only logical.

And tonight I'm going to watch 1776. I decided to go because my mom loves this movie, and because Lea's going, but I'm a bit apprehensive, because it's her Christian singles group that's showing it. And, well, I am very wary of Christian singles groups!

I'm a firm believer that there should be more singles groups that exist to enable people to just hang out with friends and have fun without the occasional awkwardness that comes from being the only single in a group of people with romantic relationships. However, it's been my experience that singles groups really aren't like this. In fact, "singles group" seems to be code for "let's get together and see if we can all pair off!"

So I am apprehensive. Because I do not actually want to pair off! But I figure I can survive going once, and hopefully nothing too horrible or ridiculous will happen. We'll see. I have already had enough hurtful and/or awkward experiences with sexual people being ignorant this week, and I don't really need more!

And now to round out this thoroughly ridiculous post, a poll!

Modivation to watch star trek
by *Vinty on deviantART

Pavel Chekov. Saving the universe through utter adorableness.

In other, related, news: this is a sad state of affairs, my friends. I stayed up til ungodly hours reading Star Trek fic last night.

And, in a bout of crack inspiration that now WILL NOT leave me alone, I suddenly realized that there are a remarkable number of similarities between Spock/Uhura and Anabasis Anakin/Padmé.

Now wait a minute, you're thinking. Spock is a normally peaceful Vulcan, and Anabasis Anakin is someone who's been systematically desensitized to violence and trained as a mass murderer. Where's the comparison?

But consider this: They are both extremely good at repressing their emotions and being nearly impossible for other people to read, and the only times they ever really come close to being free with their emotions is when they're with Uhura and Padmé, respectively. Also, this new movie Spock apparently has a thing for strangling people when he gets pissed. I don't think I even need to tell you how that relates. this idea will not get out of my head! It's crazy, I tell you!

P.S. I think I may have committed the cardinal sin of fandom simply by using the Star Trek and Star Wars tags on the same post. The world may very well implode. Brace yourselves.

This is for [ profile] albumsontheside, who needed some cheering up. We were discussing Anabasis!Anakin's likely difficulties with résumé writing, job interviews, and the like, assuming he ever gets out of prison. :P She asked for some crack fic about such.

Well, it started out as crack anyway. It actually ended up with a bit of angst, though, because Anabasis!Anakin takes himself way too seriously, and couldn't manage to do a fic without angsting at least a little. Sabé did her best to bring the lulz, though. And ultimately this is still very much crack.

To properly set the stage for this little bit of crack, I like to imagine that Anakin has basically been lazing around Padmé's house for like six months after getting out of jail, doing nothing all day but watching soaps.

P.S. This is basically unedited beyond a quick read through, so please feel free to point out my fail!

Title: Résumé Building for Sith Lords
Characters: Anakin, Padmé, and Sabé

After the epic fail contained in my last post, here is some epic win that's cheered me up. :) I got two awesome things in the mail today: an early birthday card from my grandma and a lovely little package from [ profile] albumsontheside. Thank you darling! :D

Said package contained my very own Anakin Skywalker. Actually, according to the little "collect them all!" card that came with the Ventress [ profile] emmaorgana sent me, this particular Anakin is really Darth Vader. (My OT loving soul finds this somewhat difficult to believe, since Darth Vader has a pretty badass life support system and sounds like James Earl Jones, but I digress. Suffice it to say that Emma and Samira both clearly know me too well.)

My Darth Vader came with a full FIVE PAGES of meticulously copied care instructions. :D Said instructions detailed, among other things, the fact that Anakin most certainly does not suffer from mental illness of any kind, and he is perfectly fine really. Also, he apparently has a number of scars that are frighteningly similar to Anabasis!Anakin's scars, and make me wonder if [ profile] albumsontheside has been sneaking peeks at my notes again. ;)

Speaking of which, this kid could practically be Anabasis!Anakin: he just needs to lose the scar over his eye and the mechanical hand, get a haircut, and acquire some better fashion sense! (Also, a red lightsaber.)

I feel that it is patently dangerous to have Anakin and Ventress together in the same house, let alone the same room (especially since said Anakin reminds me so much of his Anabasis incarnation), but for now they appear to have called a truce in favor of threatening me to make me write more fic. Anakin is demanding he get a happy story, for once. (Actually, I tell a lie. He's Anabasis!Anakin, and what he really wants is to kill Obi-Wan, but I'm not going to let him.)

And yes, I am completely aware of the irony of the fact that Anakin and Ventress are standing on either side of an icon of Lady Wisdom and her daughters Faith, Hope, and Love.

I love my f-list! You guys are all too good to me, and lately it's been like an early birthday. :D Yesterday I got a package from the lovely [ profile] emmaorgana containing my very own Stupid Sexy Ventress! Clearly Emma knows me too well! *hugs*

Also, Emma tagged me for the icon meme that's going around, so:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

And in less than a month, too! Though to tell the truth, I actually had this chapter written before the last one, so I figured I might as well post it now.

The first of what will be several short interlude chapters placed at intervals in the fic. This one involves Anakin coming face to face with his own dissociative personality.

Interlude: Anamnesis @ [ profile] sw_anabasis

And if you missed Chapter 10 it's here.

Anabasis update

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009 11:24 pm
fialleril: [Hades and Persephone] (anabasis)
Well, I gave in and updated it tonight.

Chapter 10 @ [ profile] sw_anabasis. It's a long one.

And since I realize that I haven't actually explained what Anabasis is in a while, for anyone who may be new to my journal: Anabasis is my all-consuming Star Wars prequel AU, in which Anakin began life as a Sith and is now in prison at the Jedi Temple after defeating Palpatine. He's found an unlikely ally in Jedi Master Yan Dooku, and Senator Amidala and a group of mismatched artists are working to get him out of prison, but everybody has a few more motivations than at first meet the eye.

Also, the longer I spend with this story, the harder I find it is to sum up! Anybody else wanna give it a go? ;)

At any rate, table of contents is here.

Snagged this meme from [ profile] leia_naberrie and [ profile] jedi_em.

I think the real purpose of this meme is for me to make everyone else feel better by demonstrating the sheer, obscene number of my WIPs. :P The meme itself:

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!
