Choice (PG. 902 words. Süleyman/Dietrich.)
A lesson in choices.

Fantasy (18+, non-con. Involving cross-dressing and William’s specific use of gender pronouns in regards to Isaak. 1855 words.)
William has a very specific revenge fantasy in mind when it comes to Isaak.

Comparably (G. 760 words.)
Non-alcoholic cocktails & reminiscences of Londinium. Isaak & Dietrich in the downtime during a mission. Set during the Radio Head audio drama.

A snippet, a surprising observation & a failed poll )

As recommended by [ profile] blasphemiliar, Omnia’s reading of Poe’s The Raven which at the start reminds me a little of the Potter Puppet Palls’ Snape.

Picture Perfect (PG. Comedy. 2611 words.)
Cain’s new camera: Isaak & Dietrich in front of its lens. (An in-universe explanation for that official piece of fanservice featuring Isaak & Dietrich.)

The annotated Donkeyskin - SurLaLune

I Have no Mouth, and I Must Scream - Harlan Ellison (

Courtesy of [ profile] sf_drama the old argument that you can’t look things up yourself with a side helping of needing to be taught everything about life at school and this, which the linked commenter sums up better than I could.

Also, a meme stolen from [ profile] nekonexus: Were I a summonable creature, what kind of ritual would you craft to summon me?
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (flashback)
Because [ profile] blasphemiliar provided this wonderful piece of music and today I am of an age that isn’t twenty-five for the Nth time for a change.

1028 words. PG. AU.
Isaak & Dietrich on a mission in search of an underwater repository of Lost Technology.

Voices (AU. PG. 508 words. Post-ROM3.)
Voices carry. Ion in the silences that aren’t silences at all.

Persona (G. 1544 words.)
Isaac Butler proves to be a useful persona. One take on the matter if Isaak really were immortal.

Immortality (G. 685 words. Post-series.)
Immortality is its own punishment. A far bleaker take on the possibility of Isaak’s immortality.
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (執事)
Mind’s Eye (G. Double drabble that the site tells me is actually 208 words.)
Gyula remembers his wife. An explanation of exactly why Maria appeared to be coding in a ballgown of all the impractical things to wear.

Yuletide (PG. 1094 words.)
Christmas in Rome doesn’t suit Isaak in the slightest.
Actually written last Christmas, probably on Christmas morning while I ate pandoro for breakfast to go with Whittard’s Christmas tea since both were included in this fic.

Zugzwang (AU. PG. 767 words.)
All possible solutions expended death is a resolution in of itself.
More William & Isaak at the end of the line. Inspired by a conversation with [ profile] levyrasputin. Eventually I’ll run out of chess terminology to title these sorts of things with.
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (魔)
Both pieces are unrepentantly daft but still contain enough content that I decided to post rather than delete them, regardless of the fact that they’ve been sitting in my WIP folder for quite some time now.

717 words. PG. AU. Post Empire arc.
Isaak deals with the Orden’s newest member; Dietrich fiddles with hardware and gets called ‘sir’ a lot.
One of those brief experiments in ‘what if everybody in the Orden wasn’t at each other’s throats constantly’ which grew out of pondering over suitable codenames.

1271 words. G. AU. Post Empire arc. Possibly a sort of prelude to the above.

And in other news, I have some apricot tea from these people and while it is lovely as a light tea it is horribly thin which I wasn’t quite expecting. That was a surprised because I always presume that anything blended with black tea will have some weight to it but this is more like green tea as far as things go.

9689 words. PG. Süleyman’s past; the road that led to the capital.

This has actually taken me over a year to finish but now it's done I can, once that other piece is finished as well, probably shelve Süleyman’s idiosyncrasies for a little while. Unless I end up writing about another version with a wildly different take on military service and the fraternity of the soldiery.

4101 words. PG. Isaak and William’s first meeting and the events that led up to it.

Following on from Revelation I didn’t actually mean to write this as a continuing piece, again over a year later, but there it is alongside another further piece to be finished about the beginnings of the Orden.

The problem with days like this is that I’m never entirely sure what I want to do about them so in the meantime there is a set of four drabbles featuring hair as far as Trinity Blood goes. Though I do have some of the last part of the Süleyman background piece finally moving a certain direction and the beginnings of another Isaak university-era piece which would throw Circe into a whole new light. I just need to find the time and motivation to see to them.

Tea, molasses & Ian Fleming briefly )

Necessary Lies
308 words. More fleshing out of potential background information for Süleyman. This time on the nature of frontline warfare.
593 words. Isaak reasonably post-Londinium and not so long after having met Dietrich, experiencing what may or may not be pareidolia.

I have days when I think that I’m not going to bother posting snippets to Sunsets but somehow once I have a title nine times out of ten the snippets do actually start to make sense. Or maybe I’m just anticipating some more artsy photography with my phone once a rather pretty absinthe glass arrives.

More tea has arrived at least, though the instant orange tea looks rather suspiciously like those crunchy pieces that translate awkwardly and sometimes go with your rice. I’m sure there’s something distinctly Russian I can make by adding things to the orange base too but I forget what it is.

And [ profile] aidan_mutou presents this beautiful piece of not quite storytelling, not quite simply discussion of life’s tides. I still don’t have the words to describe it really but it’s a lovely read.

Character death. William and Isaak at the end of the game.

And since today seems to be opposites day: Pleasures too, which is a reversal of Lies more or less. I’m getting dangerously close to bastardising Arabian mythology at this point.

Also, just so I remember where I put this. I may well be over-thinking the sentiment.

I seem to have lost my ability to have regular conversations. I can discourse theory at people, I can even cite all my sources verbally but somehow I can’t quite seem to have basic conversations anymore. Though I can find the compulsion to yell about the Euro 2008 qualifiers at least. Turkey are playing Moldova next month and they’d better win.

Epistemic communities )

And some musings on being human )

In other news, there is new Trinity Blood fic here which may be in part due to my finding this bizarre Hall of the Mountain King remix last week. Though my lieutenant reliably informs me that it may have something to do with Alton Towers.

1371 words. PG for implication. Dietrich and Isaak in something less than actual conversation.
Fictional failure and literal madness. And an absence of seductions all round.

"Between the age limits of nine and fourteen there occur maidens who, to certain bewitched travellers, twice or many times older than they, reveal their true nature which is not human, but nymphic (that is, demoniac); and these chosen creatures I propose to designate as ‘nymphets’."
