[sticky post]A Table Of Contents, In Progress
frustrated mother of teenager
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....

Returning To The Scene Of Someone Else's Crime
Master Que
This follows on from It's Not All New Now and runs to 2,663 words.  It is also, if I can count correctly, the fifty-fith episode of Nai....

I put down my things, sat on one of the other seats around the small table he was using, and asked, “What do you want to do?”

“I want you to win, of course,” he told me, punctuating this statement by exhaling a stream of cigarette smoke.  “I also want to rub a certain young Master’s nose in his own ignorance.”

Yellow Brick Road
Flower person
Here is my story written to [Unknown LJ tag] 's </span></span>Thimbleful Thursday prompt "Yellow Brick Road."  This story is set in the same universe as the Firenze Howie pieces that can be found on Livejournal.  It runs to 590 words, so I missed the target.....

“We need an exit strategy,” said Blair.  “Our Court needs an exit strategy.  Their Majesties need us to have one; one that doesn’t lose them face.”  He looked the image of a youthful, ambitious politician, if your ideas of such people included a greenish complexion, pointed ears, and garments of dark silk and white nettle cloth.

“This was Guilderon’s project,” pointed out Mavis, pushing a lock of her sea-striped hair back behind a pointed ear, “and now that he’s dead, we don’t know exactly how many irons he had in the fire and where.”

“It seems to me that the information the task was based on was out of date,” observed Blair.  “Everything I’ve learned since we came here, and everyone I’ve talked to, has indicated that the situation we were expecting to walk into was something that happened over fifty years ago.  We fae are long lived, but fifty years is still a noticeable gap – I don’t know how that got through Their Majesties’ advisers.”

“Were we betrayed?”  Mavis asked the question sharply.  “Our Court does have enemies who want to keep us small and unimportant.”

“Not betrayed,” Sibelle spoke for the first time since they’d finished cleaning and formally laying out their leader’s body.  She’d been shuffling a deck of blank cards, her stiff insect-like wings held folded in their resting position, but now she was laying the cards out in a pattern on the silk covered table in front of her and each playing card sized plaque became illustrated as she laid it down.  “However, this place is and was always a trap.  We are not the first to be lured into it, and the darkness at the heart of this trap blocked our roads out of it once we walked in willingly.”  She laid out three more cards, and then another three.  “It tied its obfuscations to Guilderon and for now it no longer clouds our sight.  It controls all the roads into and out of this realm but there is another road, an older one from before this realm’s creation that goes through it without entering it.  I believe that if we act while we can still see clearly, we can open a door onto it.  The route won’t be direct, but it will take us home.”  Sibelle looked up from her cards, her hands, wings, and the deck still.  “I don’t know that we have much time.”

“We can’t take Guilderon with us,” said Mavis sharply.  “He’d be the first to tell us that his body would be naught but an encumbrance to travel with, now that he’s no longer in it.”

“True,” Blair nodded, “but if we bury him here, with all honour-”

“Then there would forever be a part of this realm that is also a part of our Court,” finished Sibelle, “and that would save face for Their Majesties by completing our task.”

“We could bind the doorway so not just anyone can open it,” added Mavis thoughtfully.  “If we tie it too tightly to ourselves, then we run the risk of binding us to it.  If we leave it too open, then anyone who cares to could pursue us, and trap setters rarely like to let their victims escape.”

“If we’re going to wind up inspiring half a dozen portal fantasies,” quipped Sibelle, “then the locals won’t be able to claim that we did nothing for them.”

The laughter was a welcome break, and then the three of them got down to the business of tidying up and going home.

Reading Suggestion

If you like teen school stories and fantasy that could be science fiction, and/or steampunk, may I recommend the new serial book in the Edally Academy series by [personal profile] aldersprig. ?

The Broken Bargain begins here.  It's only just started, so you don't have much catching up to do - unless you want to read the first two books as well.  :)  [Disclaimer:  I recommend that you do.]
