Not the greatest year, in any sense of the word. So many losses, large and small; so much hatred and miscommunication and pettiness and sorrow in the world.

Even before November 8, creating fanworks had come to feel like swimming upstream in a hailstorm: but I kept at it. Had a few things to say and a gift or two to deliver, and wasn't going to quit before everything was done.

Though it is a pairing that generally melts my heart and makes me grin, I didn't think'd ever write any Wranduin—but then this prompt came along, and boom.

Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider serves the demon lord known as Kil'jaeden the Deceiver. But Kil'jaeden is not the only one skilled at deception.

The completion of a story idea from 2007. Six years of thought and planning, four years of writing, this novel-length "lore slalom" was both the most exhausting and the most exhilarating thing I've written. (Chapter 20 technically wasn't posted by the end of the year—which was my goal—but it did go off to beta around then.)

Author's notes for earlier chapters are here (it has become a very long post).

Summary: After fleeing with her people from Argus to Draenor, a draenei hunter becomes the only Rangari to join the enemy..


Each Day is A Blessing
on Ao3 :||:  on FF.net

Fel Rangari Anaara is a fel-corrupted eredar — the skin of her face is red, and her arms and legs are charred and cracked and ooze green fel corruption—sitting on a mushroom on the southern shore of Tanaan, looking across Tanaan Channel in the direction of Elodor and the Altar of Sha'tar in Shadowmoon Valley. Although hostile, hunters can approach quite close without aggroing her (non-hunters will be one or two shotted). When defeated, she drops an item, the Vial of Fel Cleansing, which allows hunters to turn the felbound wolf aberrations of Tanaan Jungle into tameable beasts.

Note: This story also includes beautiful fanart of Anaara by Mipeltaja

As Grand Magister Rommath will tell you, being a member of the Six is  woul be a vastly-overrated privilege.

Written as result of this post. Because sometimes the ideas that people toss out as they speed past hit me in the face.

(Note: mild spoilers for the Legion expansion.)
  Heh, well, so it seems as though that 'detail' was simply in the Legion alpha to troll dataminers. Still, I do think that if Rommath ever had to go through the archives and found those papers, he'd have the same rection.

An eleventh-hour pinch hit written for [community profile] tagyourit , this merges the request for sun priestess/moon priestess with requests for worldbuilding, vampires, soulbonding and body horror.  By far the strangest thing I've ever written (and my first attempt at body horror), to my joy the recipient was pleased with it. 

The eternal story: dark, light, structure, chaos, order, abandon, passion, lies, truth, love, sorrow, descent, ascension.

Very very loosely based on the fairy tale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon."

Steven Lynch's "If I Were Gay" is a funny song. When I saw a pinch hit for it fly by on the [community profile] jukebox_fest  comm, I decided to tackle it. The result was my first entirely original fanfic in 11 years, and the realization that quite a bit of double entendre can be mined from candy names.

Sooner or later, most songs get stale. When that happens, you probably need to switch to a different song—or, at the very least, add new verses to the old one. ** Over a bottle of whiskey and a bag of Hallowe'en candy, the relationship between two old friends begins to change.
