World: Ursulan
Word count: 813
Rating: PG-13 for implied sex and nastiness
Prompt: [community profile] rainbowfic Sulphur 1, snake; [community profile] stayintheroom, "Your ends don't even justify your ends."; [community profile] dailyprompt, things that are painful to remember
Notes: This story follows one I have written but not posted, in which Morwenna has taken over Camelot while Ursula is away fighting the saxons and seduced Gwynn. At the end of that story, Ursula and the knights return; Ursula and Morwenna are both pregnant. This begins a few months later.


"Don't do this, Morwenna," Gwynn hissed, grabbing her arm. She snatched her arm away from him, almost overbalancing, gravid with their child.

"Why shouldn't I?" she growled back. "And how dare you try to stop me."Read more... )

Word count: 1,783
Rating: PG-13 for drugs
Prompt: [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith mushroom spirits; [community profile] rainbowfic Sulphur 20, The souls of men are demons; [community profile] stayintheroom image prompt
Notes: I do not know whether this is real or just drug-induced. But please attribute any inconsistencies between Maggie's experience and real mushroom trips to Maggie being magic.


“I can see it all,” Maggie whispered. Her head felt hollow. The sound in her ears was a church bell, tolling once and going on and on, not fading away. “Everything. What are you?”Read more... )

Prompt: [community profile] rainbowfic Moonlight 1, liminal; Sulphur 9, fallen; [community profile] stayintheroom Your character isn't strong enough.; [community profile] daily_prompt breaking a bone
Notes: This actually turned out to be a little happier than I expected.


“See?” said Charlotte. “From up here you can see everything, and they can’t see us.”

Ivy was not entirely convinced of that, but she climbed up after Charlotte anyway. Laura and Angel were right behind them. And once she’d inched out on the roof to sit next to Charlotte, she had to admit it was pretty cool. The whole schoolyard was stretched out before them, and more besides that. It was a little dizzying if she looked straight down, but she didn’t really want to do that anyway. From here she could just barely see the park.Read more... )

Title: Guys and Girls
World: Moonsisters
Word count: 2,416
Rating: R
Warnings: (skip) Misogynistic language, underage drinking, attempted rape, ensuing violence.
Prompt: [community profile] rainbowfic Sulphur 12, Manipulation; Moonlight 9, Ember; Fire Opal 7, Lusting after; hurricane; [community profile] stayintheroom "She's always the smartest person in the room, and she knows it."
Notes: When I saw the [community profile] stayintheroom propmt, I honestly thought this story was going to be about Ivy--and it is, but it's more about Charlotte. Also, I don't play video games and it occurred to me after I wrote it that Grand Theft Auto is probably not multiplayer. But it delights me to think of Angel and Laura playing a violent video game together.


“And furthermore,” Ivy said, “if you believe the theory about the butterfly, you understand that there’s really no point in worrying about your actions. The butterfly didn’t know it was causing the hurricane—it never even knew anything about the hurricane it caused, since it was so far away. You can’t control what consequences your actions will have. All you can do is try to survive however you can. If that butterfly hadn’t flapped its wings at that time, it would have fallen to the ground and been trampled or eaten. It didn’t have any choice anyway.”Read more... )

Notes: Jorik is the last entry, lily, from Flowers for the Queen.


The radio broadcast had stopped four hours ago. He couldn’t get any stations at all now. He didn’t know quite what that meant, but it couldn’t be anything good.

Still, the sounds had stopped. The bombing seemed to be over, at least in their area.

Jorik still waited.Read more... )
