Chocolate 20, Papaya 22

Hi, I'm new here (& hoping I'm doing this right!), and lost_spook is what I'm known as in most places. The story pieces I'm sharing are from an odd AU thing (originally from a meme prompt elsewhere; there's a link with the details so far for anyone who wants them) - I wanted to play around with it here and see what happens. I've been eyeing up your tempting prompt lists for a long while, so, here goes...

Pumpkin Pie. (Horizon Tales)

AUTHOR: Shrimp
CHALLENGE: Pumpkin Pie 7. special effects
NOTES: This is a piece leading up to one of the important things that happens to Vala while she's working as a smuggler after she runs away. I'm not super thrilled with it. The tension I think isn't there.

Cherry Vanilla Binge with Butterscotch & Caramel
Story : knights & necromancers
Rating : PG
Word Count : ~2.5k

So full of spoilers, I almost can't believe I am posting it. But Olram has demanded it (and I think she already knows the secret anyway) so here goes. Being a binge, it is somewhat disjointed and lacking context, but hopefully it still works? Also, yay I wrote something!!!

Reida and the GodsCollapse )

‘Verse: The Sun, Radiant
Challenges/Toppings/Extras: Cherry Vanilla #10 (et tu?), Cheeseburger #11 (o rly?), Strawberry Banana #20 (a lecture) + Malt (I've made up my mind to be a martyr for the cause, and I can't pretend to mind) + Hot Fudge + Cherry
Rating: PG-13
Title: You Say
Summary: A truth belongs to each one of us, and Jalenashi’s is...
Notes: I originally intended to make this a dramatic monologue set to music (ICS), but I couldn‘t be arsed to figure out how to do it. Plus I’m self-conscious about my voice, sooo... ta-da!

poe-tay-toe, poe-tah-toeCollapse )

Pumpkin Pie. Malt. (Horizon Tales)

Read more...Collapse )

AUTHOR: Shrimp
CHALLENGE: Pumpkin Pie 3. potion; Butter Rum 8. bottle of rum
NOTES: This was supposed to be a pocky but it got a little longer and I didn't feel like shortening it (I'm lazy!). Just something light hearted from when Vala is working on the smuggling ship.
Read more...Collapse )

Pocky Sundae 17/30

Acerola #22. without a fight with Pocky
Story : knights & necromancers
Timeframe: Book 5 Rune the Hero

Questions (Sampler)

‘Verse: The Sun, Radiant
Challenges/Toppings/Extras: 7-prompt Sampler
Rating: T
Title: Questions
Summary: Ravir’s interrogation.
Notes: Gah this took forever. I originally planned it for the Back to School Challenge, which shows y’all how much I procrastinated on it… Back into the main arc again, whee!

the questions of a thousand dreamsCollapse )

Pumpkin Pie. Sprinkles. (Horizon Tales)

AUTHOR: Shrimp
CHALLENGE: Pumpkin Pie 2. witchcraft/supernatural; sprinkles
NOTES: Bastian has only just come up once in a pocky. He appears late in Arc 2 as a romantic interest for Elisa and, despite some difficulties, hangs around. This takes place in Arc 3 when Vala has returned to Uniss to help in the rebellion against Broderick. Elisa and Bastian follow her and wind up having their own set of adventures while Vala makes a name for herself with the rebel king. Bastian is trans, which comes up in stuff that chronologically happens before this point but I haven't written yet, so if there's any confusion about that let me know. Also, Pumpkin Pie seems to be inspiring me for sprinkles. Anyway, enjoy!

Author: rustydragonfly
Challenge: Gingerbread 24 (magic lamp)
Extras: pocky
Wordcount: 100

'Do you carry any clocks?'Collapse )

Strawberry Cheesecake 19 // Love Bite

Author: Olram
Challenge: Strawberry Cheesecake [19 // spider]
Extras: Brownie
Word Count: 5.420
Rating: PG
Story: Canticle//The Directory
A/N: So much for posting Canticle all in order, eh? -___- Anyway, this is a rewrite of one of the first stories I ever wrote involving these two. It's changed a lot, but it still has this certain charm...

You know you have communication issues when your subconscious has to create shadow creatures in an attempt to get you to talk about ~the feels~.Collapse )
AUTHOR: Shrimp
CHALLENGE: Pumpkin Pie 1. ghost; hot fudge; sprinkles; whipped cream
RATING: PG-13 (warning for abusive relationship)
NOTES: Meet Takis. He's a total jerk. He's a more minor bad guy who has ties to one of Vala's friends. In addition to being Takis' introduction this serves as a background piece to one of the other characters. I set it up to be kind of a surprise to who it is but maybe it's super obvious right away.

Read more...Collapse )
