Title: White Is For Oblivion
Fandoms: [community profile] luceti, Tales of Legendia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Genre: AU/Angst
Rating & Warnings: PG (vampires, language)
Words: 2676
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above media.
Summary: Those who are brought back from the dead are unnatural, their emotions muted and their existence dulled and painful. Grune will not permit such a fate to befall one so loved.
Author's Notes: So this is over a year old and one of the last things I wrote before I went on my massive DS9 binge. It was born from the speculation of what direction the Buffy comics were going to take with Giles. This was one of the possibilities, even if it wasn't the direction the comics ended up going in. Possibly Giles would have preferred this to what actually happened.

I'm going to get back to posting my Luceti fic now, I think--I currently have a massive backlog of stuff I wrote but never got around to dictating up. I'm just going to be really slow about it. :D;;

Stars can be born, live, and fade away in the space between one moment and the next in a mortal life, and still she will never be 'too late.' )

Title: Redress

Genre: Gen
Rating: PG-13
Words: 5951
Disclaimer: I don't own the above fandoms.
Summary: There is no balance between good and evil on Giles' Earth, and Grune cannot leave the home of one so loved in such a condition. However, she is not strong enough to right what is wrong on her own.
Author's Notes: So basically this one is me shamelessly indulging my weakness for Grune being a badass. It took me a long time to write, then to dictate and edit, but overall I'm fairly pleased with how it came out.

While I haven't watched all that much of Buffy, I tried to make the appearance of the First Evil what I think would be likely for the show. Even if it isn't what I personally would have gone with, I think this fits in the universe better. I could be completely off base, though.

I apologize in advance for any mistakes I might have made with the canon; I did a lot of reading and looking at images, but yeah.

. . . But, as she travels along the freshly-laid sidewalks, she cannot help but think: in a way, this is a world more desperate than the one for which she currently fights. )

Title: Sonnets between Watcher and Weaver

Genre: Gen
Rating: PG
Words: 353
Disclaimer: I don't own the above fandoms.
Summary: Two sonnets written by Giles to Grune--and one written by her in response when her memories return.
Author's Notes: One of my students needed help writing a sonnet for his homework one day last month; afterwards, I thought it seemed an interesting challenge and decided to give it a go.

I've deliberately deviated from form in each one; rather than have a reversal, I changed the formatting to suit my own purposes. I will also freely admit to being unskilled at poetry, having not made a serious attempt at the stuff outside of what was required in class since high school. Still, I'm trying to expand as a writer, so here you are.

Ah, gentle hand upon my bloodstained own.... )

Summary: Grune is the only one who can stop Schwartz from hurting her friends, and even if she can't remember why, even if she can't possibly hope to win, she'll fight to protect them.
Author's Notes: So this is what happened and Grune during Luceti's Forth Wall event. I didn't really have any way to convey it in the course of RPing with everyone, so I ended up writing it out like this. Grune pulls this exact same stunt in Legendia--or, from her perspective, she will pull this exact same stunt. For someone who's so concerned with helping others, she's sure not very good at accepting help herself.

'So you've come,' she heard someone say. )

Words: 1252 + 164 omake
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above fandoms.
Summary: There is no greater love a dignity-conscious man can show for a dear friend than to enter a crossdressing pageant for her sake.
Author's Notes: Okay, I had a lot of fun with this one. Basically, Haruhi shamelessly used Grune to get as many signups as possible for her crossdressing pageant. Lots of names were submitted, but I realized after a while that, had this pageant occurred with the cast we had last fall, there would have been a few more names involved....

The omake bit is an idea I had that I couldn't make fit into the story, but was far too tempting to pass up. So yup.

'I will admit to having done s-some ridiculous things in m-my life...but this—SURELY must be the very worst.' )

Omake. )

Title: A Promise to Keep

Genre: Gen/Angst? Not really sure how to classify this one.
Rating: PG-13
Words: 2306
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above fandoms.
Summary: When Giles starts acting very strangely, when he hurts her friends, Grune must keep the promise of their friendship in one of the most difficult ways of all.
Author's Notes: In a nutshell, my take on one of the ways the Vampire!Giles plot in Luceti could have run. I harbour no illusions that this is actually how things would have turned out--but it was fun to write anyway. Ceodore and Selphie's roles were determined by their position on the sign-up lists; everything else came from my brain.

A note for those unfamiliar with Tales of Legendia's canon: The deity of Melfes is Nerifes, which is also the ocean of that world. Thus, any water-element spells also have the dual element of light.

Thank you very much to [personal profile] hickumu for helping me with details of the Los Muertos variety of vampires and how Vampire!Giles would have reacted. Any mistakes are most definitely my own.

'Hello, Grune.' )

Rating: PG

Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above fandoms.
Summary: The letters Grune wrote to her dearest friends before her memories faded.
Author's Notes: I am so, so sorry this took so long--but that wordcount should hopefully speak for itself. Even with Yosie typing a good chunk of these for me, it was a long, slow process.

I wound up deciding to post them all in a batch here, since Sora expressed interest in seeing them all, and it seemed fairer that way. Footnotes on certain letters are included at the bottom.

I didn't get to triple-proofread these as I usually do--I just went over them about once--so I really hope there aren't any errors. Let me know if there are, please!

Title: Grune and the Bitties - 01. Fenimore
Fandoms: [community profile] luceti, Tales of Legendia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, original works, Tales of Graces f, Tales of Phantasia, Pirates of the Caribbean
Genre: Fluff
Rating: G
Words: 2452
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above fandoms.
Summary: Luceti AU: After seeing Dhaos fly, Fenimore decides she's going to one-up him.
Author's Notes: So, one day, I thought to myself, "Grune sure runs into a lot of bitties. What would it be like if she had encountered them all at once?" And thus the Grune and the Bitties series came into being.

I'm hoping to eventually write one fic for each bitty she's encountered, although at the rate she runs into them, it's going to take a long time. But that's okay. These are as fun as hell to write, so I don't mind. :D

Some notes for understanding:

* This version of Fenimore is the Luceti Valley version. She's somewhat spunkier and more adventurous than her canon counterpart--but not completely so. Regular Fenimore was fairly mischievous when she was younger, too. ♥

* Fenimore is a Ferines, a water- and air-breathing species from Tales of Legendia whose hair glows blue whenever they're breathing water. So, well, don't be surprised when that's referenced.

* "Eres" are what spells are called on Melfes. A "teriques" is, in short, the projection of a Ferines' soul that can be used for numerous purposes. Walter uses his teriques to fly and Stella has used her to stop a giant laser. (Seriously!)

* The bitties involved and their ages: Sophie (3), Dhaos (6), Fenimore (7), Hubert (10), Helios (12), Ginia (12), Rupert (12)

And that's all! Enjoy the fluff, and try not to drown in it. ♥

How hard could it be if a little kid like Dhaos could do it? )

Author's Notes: This one's quite old, as the mention of Giles indicates. (Or maybe it's ahead of its time?) I'm guessing this conversation happened at some point in canon in some form; this is just how I think it might've occurred.

For the non-Legendia players: Orerines = human; Ferines = people of the water (an aquatic, water- and air-breathing species native to Melfes, to which which Fenimore, Walter, and Stella belong)

Summary: Grune makes two wishes on Tanabata: One large and one small.
Author's Notes: This is a repost from all the way back in July; I wrote it shortly after Tanabata, during Dhaos' month-long mallynap. Except for a few changes to reflect how threads turned out, all I did was clean it up to post. I'm on the editing stage for my next new fic, but it'll be a while before it turns up in that it got fairly complex. So I guess this will have to do in the meantime. :|b

Now that she had a little time to think, her mind was turning back to one friend who wasn't there with her. )

Just take it at face value and try not to think about it too much?

Author's Notes: This one was written in I believe early November--I can't exactly remember. It took quite a bit of editing, but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. I certainly can't say this is how things are going to end, but...it's a possibility.

This is the sequel to "White Is For Remembrance" and makes far more sense if you read it second, so anyone who hasn't read that one yet probably will want to first.

It's rare to attend the same man's funeral twice, even when you are the companion of the Weaver of Time. )

Summary: As she says farewell to one of her dearest friends, she cannot quite get all the details right.
Author's Notes: This is a repost (with some editing) of a fic I wrote last summer and passed around to only a few people--Yosie, Hickumu, and Levy, IIRC. It's fairly easy to tell I wrote it before the whole mutual hatred thing really got going between Dhaos and Giles, but I wound up leaving that part of it alone. Eheh.

It's fourth in a series Hickumu and I are unofficially writing; you don't need to have read the previous three fics to understand what's going on, but it might help.

Tales of Legendia and Buffy the Vampire Slayer spoilers abound, so be warned.

Oddly enough, it's the smallest details that are hardest when jumping to a culture for which she has not prepared. )

Author's Notes: So I, um, wrote this in...late September. Or possibly early October. Pretty much the same time as "The Importance of Honest, Direct Communication," back when the whole "Dhaos mind controls Giles" plot first came up. I thought I'd write a possible way things could have come to a head; too bad I didn't post it in anything remotely like a timely manner. Oh well.

The second man who observes from behind the eyes of the one that Grune sees—he unsettles Dhaos. He wonders what it would take to bring that man to the fore, to display his heart's weakness. )

Summary: The early days of Grune and Dhaos' relationship, as seen through the eyes of Fenimore, Norma, and Dhaos. Part 3: Dhaos discovers the perils of embarking on a relationship with one of the most innocent (and most social) members of Luceti.
Author's Notes: This is the part of the fic that's most showing its age. Some characters' situations and relationships have changed significantly since I wrote this in early fall; rather than reworking the fic extensively, I chose to change only superficial details and leave the overall structure of the fic intact.

There are also a number of characters who have become close to Grune in the time since I wrote the fic and its posting (Pao-lin and Seto come immediately to mind--and Robert, but I kind of doubt he'd be giving a talk to Dhaos) who would have gotten their own special scenes. I suppose that's what drabbles are for....

Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hickumu for helping me with Giles' section! ♥

Anyway, this is the final part, so enjoy!

He supposed it was only to be expected. Grune had the love of more people than Dhaos could keep track of—much to his discomfort. It was only natural for them to be protective of someone so innocent. )

Author's Notes: I wrote this up as a potential alternate scenario for the night of September 7, 2011, when Giles returned from his kidnapping by the Malnosso thinking he had been gone for months and no one had missed him one bit. Obviously, Grune couldn't completely monopolise him that evening--Giles has lots of friends who needed to convince him his mind had been messed with (and a vampire to be attacked by)--but if she could, this might be how it turned out.

Set after this thread, instead of the visit to the Memory Garden.

Author's Notes: So my voice recognition software doesn't like Norma's nicknames. Sob.

Also, I made some assumptions while writing this, chiefly that Dhaos would eventually get sick of Norma's assumptions about his relationship with Grune and informed her they weren't actually sweeties. Whether that's going to actually happen in canon remains to be seen.

Chapter 1

All right. Time to get down to business. 'I'm really happy for you, G-Girl, but we gotta talk about some stuff. IMPORTANT stuff,' she made sure to emphasize. )
