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 )
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (configuration)
Aliases (1758 words. G.)
The utility of nicknames and hiding in plain sight. More from the Monster in the Tower.
My original fic site isn’t quite organised just yet but at least I can start uploading new pieces to the required folders so that’s not entirely cheating when it comes to having it ready by Burmese New Year.

Šahrzād (2593 words. G.)
Pertinent points in the raising of a Methuselah child.

Dante’s Inferno: An Animated Epic )

Dietrich’s precious cargo: on the journey from Carthago to Byzantium.

Also: congratulations, Australia. I believe the appropriate line from the Wilde screenplay would be: "I feel like the city that’s been under siege for twenty years, and suddenly the gates are thrown open and the citizens come pouring out to breath the air and walk the fields and pluck the wild flowers – I feel relieved."

1949 words. PG for mentions of cannibalism. AU. Pre-series.
They are mad, consumed by this strange death cult of their own invention, deranged things that probably ought not to be called human. Süleyman’s dealings with the House of Luxor.
Based heavily on Vampire: the Masquerade’s clan Cappadocian though the title could also be reference to the Cappadocian region and the semi-underground cities there.

Radu’s mother and the fate ordained for her son.
Fairly obvious historical references.

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.
In the midst of a failed revolution Dietrich comes to some interesting conclusions about the parties involved.

narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (fake)
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.

1357 words. PG.
A teenaged Radu questions Süleyman’s lack of matrimonial aspirations producing some unexpected revelations about Imperial society.

819 words. G. Pre-Iblis arc.
A favour is requested of the Carthaginian extremists.
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (魔道士)
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 )
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (bemusement)
3263 words. PG.
This is what happened when I tried to write Süleyman background fic last year while in a less than serious frame of mind and with a stack of history texts to hand. I should probably warn for Turkish breakfasts, showtunes and Mircea cel Mare, after a fashion, really.

narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (dutiful)
More jotting down of ideas while I remember them. From this sort of perspective Süleyman makes a rather good Bret Easton-Ellis protagonist, though maybe in more of a Less Than Zero fashion rather than that of American Psycho.

Veneer (PG. 684 words.)
Paints and powders concealing inhumanity rather than aiding vanity. Radu behind his mask.

Vision (G. 100 words.)
This is the last time that Baybars will lay eyes upon this form… Baybars watches Süleyman sleep.

Both of these pieces being pretty much attempts to jot down some ideas that I’ve not had the time to really elaborate on as yet. They’ll do for the moment at least, then maybe I can get back to that logistical exercise as well as the last part of Pathway for which the lead-in is already written.
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (louche)
Mother (G. 3341 words.)
Part two of Pathway charting the time between Süleyman’s border command and his arrival in Byzantium.

Circus (PG. 2441 words.)
Süleyman takes a teenaged Radu to the Milanese opera with some rather curious results. Though not before deciding that his activities in Venice would make it a far too scandalous location to visit instead.
I ought to warn for my slinging around Italian phrases here too really.

Change (PG. 2101 words.)
Something has changed between him and his tovarăş and Ion cannot understand why.
Involving non-sexual naked Methuselahness.
With an additional challenge to [ profile] alucards_bane to figure out the inspiration from real life.

And lastly a Pegasus log involving two NPCs one of whom is a tarot reader who may in fact be faux-Egyptian and the other who may or may not be Turkish.
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (Default)
Maschere (G. 423 words.)
Masks as faces and faces as masks. The nature of parental care from his grandmother.

Much Ado (PG. 1246 words. Astaroth, Süleyman & Seth.)
A trip to the terran district and several misassumptions. A comedy of errors. Alternating perspectives per paragraph and each paragraph drabble-length.

Lycoris (PG. 1209 words. Radu.)
Through the eyes of the slave all hope is delusion. Folktale and historical references abounding. (Lycoris the Mime from Augusto Fraschetti’s Roman Women.)

Custody battle rages over ancient artefacts The Providence Journal
Archaeologyists start Stonehenge dig Associated Press
The Shroud of Turin Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit

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.

The mirror-version of Endgame. Inspired by a comment by [ profile] levyrasputin.

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.
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (fairytale)
Predilections (PG. 1871 words. Vices to cover vices; the privileges of noble Methuselah.) is yet another one of those pieces inspired by real life that tend to crop up on me entirely by surprise. Read more... )
