The white_lotus Lunar New Year Exchange Masterlist
is up! I ended up making three things for the exchange, all of which are totally id-tastic and the reveal probably wouldn't have surprised anyone who knew me if it weren't for the fact that I rarely make three things in a year
. Title: Ephemera from the Avatar Collection at Republic City University with notes and commentary by the archivistsFor: livrelibreCharacters/Ships:
non-explicit canon relationshipsNotes:
standard notes; references to post-series events including violence and major character death pre-KorraSummary: Many of these pieces lack provenience, as they were recovered after the Great Fire destroyed the Kuei Royal Collection at Ba Sing Se University.
The Avatar Collection is not available to the public. Scholarly inquiries should be directed to the Chief Archivist.
This was my 48 hour pinch hit! We had a late drop-out, and so I made this over the weekend - I did the photoshopping on Saturday, then didn't have time to do anything on Sunday because I'd already arranged to go to a museum with some folks. (The de Young's Masters of Venice show, which gave me a migraine and made everyone I went with feel sick and dizzy - wow were those bad labels.) So I finished it up late Sunday and then Monday morning and made chagrined
beta it when ze was totally drunk and then wrestled with the AO3 Monday night to try to get the formatting to work out. And after I did that, I did:Tiitle: Spa Day
(titles are hard okay)For: pleonasm
Katara/Toph, Katara/Aang, lots of implied offscreen relationships Notes:
By the twelfth day of the border negotiation, Katara's barely holding on to her temper. She really needs some time off.
This was my four hour pinch hit! I freaked out when we didn't get a pinch hit exactly at a late deadline (though it worked out okay in the end) and did this late Monday night. It's pretty much thanks to glass_icarus
, who was very helpful on IM talking about what all of the gaang need and want from each other. Also I was thinking of a great drawing of the adult gaang while I was writing it, but I can't find it now. chagrined
betaed this, too, and such_heights
also took a look at it.
I kind of want to write tons of other bits of this sort of warm, comfortable, post-series giant established open relationship, too, now: Aang and Zuko on a mountain together, Mai and Ty Lee on Kyoshi, Zuko and Mai visiting Toph, Aang and Katara and Zuko and Mai together in the Fire Nation Capital, Toph hitting Aang with rocks, all these different ways of being friends and lovers. Title: a deep delight of the bloodFor: thingswithwingsCharacters/Ships:
The one with kinky bloodbending! It contains many kinks (see tags at the ao3) playing with obedience, control, consent, humiliation, temperature, bodies, and other fun things. Lots of kink, no sex. Characters are their canonical third-season ages. Summary: "Me. You could practice on me. If I'm telling you that you can do it, it can't be wrong to practice - just in case - "
I wrote the first 4000 words of this for the exchange last year, and then didn't finish or post it because the timing was totally awful and I didn't think thingswithwings
would appreciate giftfic at the time. I kept meaning to finish it after that, but never did, because writing is hard and I need deadlines. I did a bit more throughout the year, but didn't actually write the last five hundred words until the last weekend of the exchange. livrelibre
looked at this and were very reassuring when it had 4000 words and then looked at it again when I'd finished it, because they are awesome, even if I resisted every time livrelibre
tried to convince me to take out some semicolons.
Also, I didn't title it until seriously the last minute, when I was despairing of ever coming up with a title and looking at quotes and song lyrics and I hated everything. And then I found this Santayana quote that made me giggle - "To knock a thing down, especially if it is cocked at an arrogant angle, is a deep delight to the blood" - so it ended up being the title even though probably it's about war or something, idk.
