silverr: abstract art of pink and purple swirls on a black background (Default)

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.
 

Each Day is a Blessing

Fel Rangari Anaara

After fleeing with her people from Argus to Draenor, Anaara becomes the only Rangari to join the enemy.

A stray musing on a wowhead entry sparked this one.

Near the end of his life, a widowed former king in declining health reunites with an old friend.

Gift for [archiveofourown.org profile] alternatedoom 

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

Deceiver
Warcraft III, World of Warcraft,
Kael'thas Sunstrider
 

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 exhausting and exhilarating to write. (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.)

Chapter 20 of 20, and an Appendix, now posted.

Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider serves the archdemon Kil'jaeden the Deceiver. But Kil'jaeden is not not the only one skilled at deception..

Deceiver on FFnet :||: Deceiver on Ao3

Almost 10 years after the story idea first sparked, 5 years after I posted the Prologue, 160,000 words and 650 screen shots later, it's finally complete.

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

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.

Apologies for all the placeholder text: this post is a work in-progress as my notes are currently a scattered mess.
