[sticky post]A Table Of Contents, In Progress

As part of the January 13 Prompt Call, I started doing landing pages for series I write or worlds I write in.  I don't always write in an established world or series but I seem to have a lot of worlds and series out there.

Having created landing pages, they are of no use to any of us, if no-one can find them.  Hence this page.

The landing pages created so far are for:

The Angel Universe - a world of polytheism, angels, vard, and a lot of humans, including one group who believe they are the chosen of the gods.

Rensa - within the world of the Defensive Diaspora, there is a world where the revolution has wiped out the entire Imperial family.  Except for one princess, who was made a proposal she can't refuse by a man who's in his job because everyone else is dead.

The Prince of Cats - a father and son who aren't quite what they seem.

The Winged Cat Universe a contemporary world with magic, and winged cats.

After The Fairy Tale - so what happened after the fairy tale ended?

The Squad - four ship protection specialists in a space faring culture.

Mayin -  after a decade away fighting an interstellar war, a returned soldier tries to adjust to the civilian world with the complication of an unexpected suitor.

Erima -  the demons are taking over, the godssons are the free world's best hope, and Erima was not the child her mother hoped for.

The Elf - the elf has taken over the city.  He's up to something and he's being opposed, but the opposition doesn't care if they hurt people.

Nai - a mangaish road trip undertaken by a young, female, professional gi fighter and her instructor.

Frack - Ludwina Frack has reappeared after being missing for seven years, but her life of spaceships, piracy and offers she can't refuse isn't over yet.

Iphana - within the world of the Defensive Diaspora, on a world with extreme arctic climate changes, a young technician is almost abandoned for the winter...

Afterwhen - there was a catastrophe, maybe even an apocalypse, but that was a while ago and is just passing from living memory. Different groups have different resources, different skills and different issues.

The Unformed Coven - thirteen people who are quite happy as they are, with their own concerns and lives. Other people, it seems, have plans for them that they may not care for.

Dark Fantasy Bingo - based on the prompts from my Dark Fantasy Bingo card from 2013 we have the story of Sillan Denevda after she became Tamin Sorid - because of politics and stuff.

The Twisted Skein - probably space opera with star ships, isolated human civilizations, plus drama and intrigue if I can pull them off.

Inheritance - in the wake of an elderly man's death, secrets begin to come out and stories to reawaken. (Note: may contain super heroes.)

After I finish listing the various series, then I'll have to keep the landing pages up-to-date....

Probably a Fanfic
Flower person

I went to see a major release movie yesterday, and this came out of my thoughts both before and after seeing it. It probably counts as fanfic, but it contains no characters from the franchise and does not contain spoilers for the newly released movie. It does contain what could be considered an oblique reference to an organsation in the franchise. I hope that you enjoy these 1,400 words.

Sidlaw stopped in the doorway and looked at the string of symbols and numbers scrawled across the white board on the opposite wall in multiple colours. He asked, "What are you doing?"

 

The writer, part way through an equation that was requiring five different colours of white board pen, turned to look at him and answered, "Checking the effect of changing some variables in these equations. I'll clean off the board and put the pens back when I'm done."

Social Business

This follows on from Unexpected Afternoon Episodes and runs for 2,921 words.

We repaired to The House of Internal Repose, which I would never have found on my own as it was in through a side door between two shop entrances on the Boulevarde, and then up a flight of stairs to a large room that was open to the afternoon air over a courtyard or alley on the opposite side of the building to the Boulevarde.  The outlook of a wall of apartment windows in a brick wall was partly obscured by a row of ornamental plants along the ledge of the tea house, and I hoped that the large bamboos and jade plants also enhanced the outlook of the apartment dwellers.  We were met at the top of the stairs by a lady of the formidable category universally addressed by the rest of us as “Aunty”.  Master Dang asked the middle-aged lady with permed hair tied back in a headscarf for a table for five, and in one breath she both introduced herself as Aunty Reng and then flirted with both Master Dang and Mr Li.

In The Same Boat

From [Unknown LJ tag]'s </span>Thimbleful Thursday prompt "In the same boat" we get this little tale:

 

“This is not what I had in mind when I went on that holiday picnic cruise,” Varisa bailed as she complained.  “Was it too much to expect the ferry not to be sunk?  Or to expect holeless lifeboats?”

One of the two men doing the rowing said, “Complaining isn’t making things any better.”

There were only three of them in the lifeboat, not for want of trying, but every survivor in the water they’d approached had been dragged under by…something.  Then they’d discovered the drilled holes in the boat.

“I’d like to be screaming and crying,” replied Varisa, “but then I couldn’t bail, and that thing is still in the water under us.  Cross and whiny may be annoying, but I can bail.”

“Whatever works,” said the other man.  “Let’s get to shore in one piece, then I can take whoever planned this apart.”

“I shouldn’t approve,” said the first man, “but I do you want a driver?”

“Sounds good,” grunted the second man.  “What about you, cross and whiny?”

“My mother’s address book has at least three members of the organising committee in it,” replied Varisa.  “She and I were on the ferry together.”

“I’ve started things from worse positions in the past,” allowed the second man.  “Game on then.”

Unexpected Afternoon Episodes
Master Que

This follows on from More Domesticity and Business, and came in at 2,561 words.

After lunch I spent the afternoon in the training room with Master Que revising my forms and reviewing my combat strategies.  We finished with a new set of forms, something that hadn’t happened for some time.  I’d finished my third run through on my own when Master Que commented, “Very commendable for such an early effort, but enough for today.  What were you humming just then?”

I stopped and thought.  “The music that goes with those movements.  It helps with timing some of the hand gestures.”

Runaway

Here is my 16th tale of the Apocalypse Bingo, based on the prompt "Rise of a New Species." This one is a precursor to my World Tree stories. all four of them, which can be found on Dreamwidth and Livejournal. In both locations I suggest you go to the bottom of the page and read up. This story came in at 1,116 words, but the older stories are shorter.


"It's a very vigorous hybrid," admitted Kenishwa. "Rather more vigorous than expected. The oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water aspects of its metabolism are within the required parameters. The growth pattern is exceptional; not only do the branches grow at up to forty centimetres a day, so do the aerial roots."

 

"So," Cornelius Bracken was lead for more than half the botanicals projects, "what positive risks have we identified for the project?"

Side Quested

Here is my 15th tale of the Apocalypse Bingo. It is written to the prompt "Cargo Cult" and came in at 2,727 words.

"These are not the goods of the promise," said the man of the canyon people to Japha and Mereed. He shook his head sadly at them.

 

"We never said they were," replied Mereed politely. Apparently Japha wasn't permitted to speak the canyon man elder, while Mereed was. The canyon people were known to have some strange rules, and in their present position Japha and Mereed had little choice but to follow the rules they had been told applied to them.
