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
World of Warcraft,
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.

Wrathion/Anduin

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.)

Not a big year in terms of quantity, but I am happy with the three pinch hits and the one promptficI did write—and happily, I also made progress on Deceiver.
 

By Sea and Sun Espouse'd
Hellenic Myth & Lore,
Hektor/Andromache

Before I Was Gay
If I Were Gay (song),
OMC/OMC

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 shift.

Pinch hit written for [community profile] jukebox .

It took me a day to get in the right headspace to write a story with all-original characters again — it's like writing blank verse compared to fandom canon's sonnets — but it was fun.

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

Pinch hit for [community profile] tagyourit

An all-female society of sun-worshipping vampires and the moon priestesses who willingly feed them, wrapped up in angsty soulbonding and tied with a body horror-bow.

 Marginalia
World of Warcraft,
Rommath

As Grand Magister Rommath will tell you, being a member of the Six is an overrated privilege.

A promptfic of sorts. Written after reading speculation about a small potential spoiler from Legion, it's  dedicated to the people whose discussion of Rommath broke my heart.

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.

I made progress after breaking the '2 months per chapter' barrier. Hoping to have the remainder of the novel drafted by the end of the year, I tried to use NaNo to finish (which did not succeed); I then tried to use December to achieve completion, and while that also failed, I did make progress on drafting the last 5 chapters + a sidestory.
