Title: Stories for Children
World: Arite and Tovran
Word count: 385 (exactly!)
Rating: G
Prompt: Thimbleful Thursday's Tell-Me Tuesday: Who won the war?
Notes: It's been a very long time since I wrote anything in this world, but the prompt immediately brought it to mind!


"But Mama, who won the war?" Jobek asked. His brother held his hand and nodded.

Abida stroked the dark heads of her little sons. They looked so like their father, except for Zalek‚Äôs eyes--green, like hers. "We did, of course, my darlings. Do you not see the beautiful home we live in, all the servants who answer to us, the great lands that your father owns?"Read more... )

Title: Love Letters
Word count: 1,339
Rating: PG-13
Prompt: [community profile] rainbowfic Tyrian Purple 21, lifelong affair; Heart Gold 9, Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. - Lao Tzu; [community profile] dailyprompt "lost dreams"
Notes: Been a while since I've written in this world! And oh, look, it's just as depressing as before XD Maybe someday I'll write the other half of this exchange--she does get responses. Warning for slight fictional racism and implied character death.


Dearest Beshtok,
He reads no Ara, so I can write to you whatever I wish. I have told him that I am writing to my younger brother, so he does not question it. Please do convey my love to Chalak, and to everyone in my family. Please tell them I am comfortable here, and safe. I would not have you tell them so much of a lie to say that I am happy.Read more... )

Title: The Sheep
Word count: 852
Rating: PG
Prompt: [personal profile] lynnoconnacht's: Enclosure
Notes: It's been ages since I've written in this setting! But the idea of enclosing for private use what once was public land seemed perfect for this conquered-and-conquerors world.


Chetai walked out to the sheep pen. She tried to walk without shaking, but it was difficult. Thankfully, the sheep did just as they always did: clustered by the gate, baaing and snorting eagerly in their desire to get outside and graze. She smiled at them, not that they knew the difference. Sheep never knew the difference. And that, today, was why she loved them.Read more... )

Hi and welcome to my Dreamwidth journal! The main thing I post here is original fiction.

My work is posted with varying degrees of privacy. If nothing is listed after the summary, it is a public piece. If it says "locked," then you must be on my access list to read it (usually this is because I want to keep rights of first publication intact). If it says "sponsor this," then the beginning of the story is public, with the rest of it waiting to be unlocked for a donation!

The Many Worlds of Clare K. R. Miller )

Title: Evanha
Word count: 577
Rating: G
Prompt: Daughters of Clio: little white horse
Notes: I knew what I was going to write almost the instant I read the prompt, based on something I'd already decided about this world. I don't think I'll continue it, but it's a fun little piece.

"I don't care!" Bheneg shouted. "We don't have room for horses, and we don't know how long we're going to be traveling!"

"But how will she survive without me?" Thezan cried.Read more... )
