I'm going to cut back on the internet for the next two weeks, because Reasons. [community profile] nightonficmountain will be unaffected.

Also I will be entirely unjoinable from April 28 to May 2.

I wrote the starter story for [community profile] starwarsrollingremix . It was then remixed in three different directions. I originally tried to arrange the remix so it'd finish before Night on Fic Mountain started, but oops.

Between the Devil and the Dust (7296 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015), Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, Star Wars Original Trilogy
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Rey (Star Wars), Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker
Additional Tags: Time Loop, Time Travel, The Force
Summary: Tatooine is not Jakku is not Tatooine. And yet.
In which Rey, Anakin and luke go on a roadtrip through the desert because The Force.

Origianlly I started writing this as an experiment in characterisation: "Compare and contrast the protags of the Star wars trilogies!" Specifically Anakin and Rey; they're very similar but they do have their differences. When I decided to use this as the starter for the remix, I did so because the involvement of all three of them made it easy for the fic to be remixed in a lot of directions/the remixers wouldn't be stuck in one trilogy. I deliberately left some of the Luke stuff obscure as a hook for remixes, actually -- which nobody used. Luke never says he forgot any of it!

It's an odd fic to describe.

On a surface level it is about a roadtrip and about 50% landscapeporn by volume. On a slightly deeper level, it's about all of them acting as each other's -- spirit guides isn't quite the right word -- catalyst to a shift in their connection with the Force (for Rey it's her "Awaken[ing]", for Anakin it's "the first step [he] took on the road to being Darth Vader").

On an even deeper level it's about what the Force actually is. This fic wouldn't look the way it does without Rogue One and the way everyone just starts dying as soon as their part is done -- the Force doesn't need them anymore.
Rey said, "Did you really expect the Force to be kind?"

"Does the desert care about the grain of sand? Does the ocean care about the wave? Does the night sky care about the star? No. Why then should the Force care for any individual life?" Rey spoke, and the words tumbled out of her mouth without her knowing where they came from. "Some are brighter or best beloved or chosen, but in the end the storm comes, the dawn rises and the wave must break."

I should also thank [tumblr.com profile] lunikus for letting ramble at length about this and helping me solve some of the issues with it.

As I said, I wrote three fics for [community profile] worldbuildingex : an assignment, a pinch-hit and a treat.


Every Heart That Beats For Liberty (4081 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, Major Character Death
Relationships: Jyn Erso & K-2SO
Characters: Jyn Erso, K-2SO (Star Wars), Ensemble (Rogue One)
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, canon typical level of Rock Falls Everybody Dies
Summary: When she was seventeen, Jyn Erso came to Jedha. When she was twenty-one, she died there.

LOOK I'M NOT SAYING THIS FIC IS BASICALLY "JYN ERSO, THE CAST OF ROGUE ONE AND THE CITY OF JEDHA DO THE PARIS COMMUNE"... but this fic is basically "Jyn Erso, the cast of Rogue One and the city of Jedha do the Paris Commune".

As befits a story about both Rogue One and the Paris Commune, everybody dies -- in the same way they die in Rogue One, even.

This assignment was enormous amounts of fun to write and the entire last scene was written in a kind of fugue state. This is the fic I mean when I said one of them was "glaringly, obviously mine": Paris Commune! Super strong friendships! Doing the right thing because it's the right thing to do! Tragedy! The difference between peace and justice!


In thunder, lightning, or in rain (2391 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Secret Wars (Hickman/Ribić 2015 mini-series), Marvel Secret Wars Battleworlds
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Gwen Stacy
Additional Tags: original alternate versions of canon characters
Summary: Stormbreaker Gwen of Thunder investigated Infinity Gems for Sheriff Strange.
This was my pinch-hit. I wrote for weakinteraction in this fandom for yuletide already (Apotheosis) and I am always up for BATTLEWORLD!

The tag "original alternate versions of canon characters" is meant to indicate that the Gwen in the story is not 616!Gwen or any of the Gwen Stacy who have previousy appeared in Marvel canon, but she is still a Gwen Stacy. Comics, everybody.

Before the Gate (388 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians - Rick Riordan
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Lou Ellen
Additional Tags: Trans Female Character, Titan War
Summary:

Lou Ellen was at a crossroad.

I wrote this short treat almost last minute.


All in all a great exchange. A++, will do again next year.

Thank you for writing for me! I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade ) if you want to. My letters tag is here.

I have six Do Not Wants: allegory/metaphor of real world politics, incest, rape, child abuse, character death and dysphoria. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangements, be that family or roomates. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

General likes )

Feel free to take prompts in whichever direction you like! And if none of my prompts work for you, then write whatever you want -- I'll be happy with anything.  (I request fanfiction only because while I really really love art, I don't know how to prompt for it.)


Ancient History RPF (Hannibal Barca & Scipio Africanus)

I have a MASSIVE thing for enemies who care about and respect each other and those two hit it IN SPADES. Feel free to have them meet at times they haven't (as far as we know) met, like after Cannae or Zama. Anything expanding on the meeting at Ephesus would also be brilliant. I am, always and forever, of the opinion that they both faked their own deaths to elope together. The AU in which they're both Roman! Or both Carthaginian! The AU in which they switch places. The AU in which it is a Pun-ic War (I LIKE PUNS). An AU in which the war goes differently -- maybe Rome surrenders after Cannae. Slavish devotion to historical accuracy not required! I'm looking for fic, not a research paper. (The tag for this fandom is here.)


Campaign (Podcast) (Any of: Tamlin Jorun, Bacta (Campaign), Synox, Avaa Arek, Lyntel’luroon)

I LOVE THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL SPACE FAMILY WITH ALL MY HEART (Also, when Lyn got confirmed as canonically queer I texted a friend immediately -- she is is the queer alien Indiana Jones of my heart. MORE LYN ON SPACE ARCHEOLOGY ADVENTURES!) Tamlin is THE CUTEST and the Tamlin-narrated noir episodes are probably my favourites -- I have a very real weakness for noir. Bacta is very good at giving me clone feelings (and lol forever at the "I like your voice" exchange with Zevowk). Also, the "Bacta Basics" podcast totally exists in-universe; what's not to love about a fact-based podcast ran by fugitives from the Empire. Leenik's friendship with Avaa is endlessly charming (her and Zero is also A++). I would love something about Synox and the animated program he's on -- wait. What if Tamlin's a fan? (The tag for this is my general Star Wars tag.)


Yoko Tsuno (Comics) (Yoko Tsuno/Khany)

I'd love something about how Khany and Yoko keep being ultimate-long-distance (girl)friends! Role reversal AU! Khany the human, Yoko the Vinean. A canon-divergent AU in which the Vineans didn't leave Earth and/or went public over their own existence. Fix-it for Le dragon de Hong Kong. Timetravel! 100% guaranteed Vinea has the tech somewhere and why should Yoko get all the fun? Vinea (and surrounding space) travelogue. Something about the telepathic communication headbands malfunctionning, be that losing all communication or amplifying too much communications. Vinea and Earth vs The Galactic Empire (or other bad guys). AU in which Yoko is trapped on Vinea. Also I like the robots. (My tag for this fandom is here.)


Thank you again for writing for me! (Comments welcome.)
