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

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;;

Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: Julian and Kira return from the Mirrorverse physically in one piece. Their mental and emotional recoveries, however, aren't so straightforward. This part: A much-needed conversation for both.
Author's Notes: The concluding part of my three-part series about Episode 2x23 "Crossover," and the one I most strongly wish had been a part of the show. I particularly would have liked to see a change in the relationship between Julian and Kira in later episodes after sharing such a terrible experience, but sadly it was not to be. Oh well--what can you do?

The next chapter to this fic will be completely unrelated to the preceding parts, so keep an eye out for it...eventually.

Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Rating & Warnings: PG (references to sexual harrassment, alcohol, drugs)

Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: Julian and Kira return from the Mirrorverse physically in one piece. Their mental and emotional recoveries, however, aren't so straightforward. This part: The Intendant in the other universe is a power-craving narcistic despot. The idea that she has the potential to be that woman haunts Kira long after she's returned to DS9.
Author's Notes: This is the second part of three based on Episode 2x23 "Crossover," which focuses on Kira's recovery during approximately the same amount of time as Julian's in the previous chapter. Unfortunately for her, however, she had things rather worse than him.

On a personal note, unfortunately, as my job resumes with the beginning of the school year, the rate at which I'll be posting fics will slow down dramatically. I still have plenty of them lined up, but making time for proofreading will be much more difficult from now on. /sigh

Once again, this segment of the fic brought to you by "Have You Ever" by The Offspring.

Title: The Last Days of Decline
Fandom: Tales of Legendia/The Hunger Games trilogy/[community profile] luceti
Genre: Angst
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 (major character death, violence, dismemberment, trivialisation of mental illness)
Words: 6474
Disclaimer: I don't own the above media.
Summary: Katniss isn't sure she likes this new woman from the Capitol. She acts as though none of the rules of District 13 apply to her and she watches Katniss far too closely.

Grune fears for Panem. Try though she might to inspire hope, it may well be that the despair in this world is too great and that Schwartz will claim it in the end.
Author's Notes: As I was reading through the Hunger Games triology, I kept thinking about the ways that this series could be crossed over with Tales of Legendia, and I kept wondering how Grune, whose role is to inspire hope and to save world after world from being claimed by the other half of her soul, could possibly win in a fight for Panem. Exploring the idea is what led me to write this.

I've tried to make this comprehensible for people who only have experience with one work or the other. Tales of Legendia isn't exactly a well-known game, and a lot of Grune's role is left ambiguous in it, so I've also made use of extensive amounts of headcanon. So, um...good luck?

Summary: Julian and Kira return from the Mirrorverse physically in one piece. Their mental and emotional recoveries, however, aren't so straightforward. This part: Julian reconciles the roles the different versions of his friends play and comes to terms with one Mirrorverse death in particular.
Author's Notes: So this got long. Really long, which is why I haven't updated this fic since it was posted. Originally, this was supposed to be a single chapter, but there was just so much awful thrown at Julian and Kira in this episode that I ended up just writing and writing and writing the fallout. So it's now in three parts, one of which is very short, but, well, it made more thematic sense to divide it up that way.

This three-parter brought to you by "Have You Ever" by The Offspring, which turned up on my mp3 player the moment I began my planning.

Rating & Warnings: PG
Words: 1048
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above fandoms.
Summary: She is a flower in time, and like the sun he opens her.
Author's Notes: This is another experimental fic I wrote over a year ago, the one that "First Bloom" was going to be a part of. (You can definitely see where I stole themes from it in the first part, whoops.) This time, I decided to see if I could incorporate the lyrics of Noe Venable's "Flower in Time" into the body of a fic in any kind of coherent way. I don't think I did too badly, all things considered!

I would definitely recommend downloading and listening to the song, since it really sets the mood.

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. )

Summary: Grune believes Dhaos' love is for her simple, unawakened self; Dhaos can't find a way to persuade her otherwise.
Author's Notes: I'm not particularly happy with this one. I messed around with it a bit in the editing stages, but it's over half a year old and I don't think I did a particularly good job of it when I originally wrote it. Still, it's worth posting anyway, so here you go.

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.

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!

Fandoms: [community profile] luceti, Tales of Legendia, Tales of Phantasia, The Legend of Zelda
Genre: Angst
Rating: PG
Words: 3271
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above fandoms.
Summary: Grune watches over her friends, their lives, and their endings. When she discovers one who has not found peaceful rest, she deems it necessary to intervene.
Author's Notes: This was a joint idea that Naomi and I had, which we worked out in the comments to one of my fics. It's something of a spinoff of "White Is For Remembrance" and "Green Is For The Goddess" and was written in a similar vein. Whether this is going to turn into a series is anyone's guess, but signs point to yes. Just like everything else I write.

This one required extensive editing, and while I think it could be even tighter, I'm still pleased with how it turned out. So, well, happy reading!

Summary: When she's unable to help a dear friend in need, Grune at last reaches a decision.
Author's Notes: Something small I wrote to fill in the gaps between Cecil and Selphie's reactions to Ceodore's departure and Grune's first serious conversation with Nala, more to sort things out in my head than anything else. Anyone who wants to see what was going through Grune's head at that point is more than welcome to read, though. ♥

Summary: Dhaos thinks about the always transforming nature of memory.
Author's Notes: First in a series of thirty-one themes (rather obviously). As a whole, these are briefer and more unpolished than what I usually write; I tend to use them as a rest for my brain between larger pieces. I'm gonna start posting them fairly often, as I've built up a fair few over the past while (I'm just about to head off and finish one now, for example). They tend to skew to angst, but that's more because of how October's themes worked out than any intent of mine. Next one's fluffy, though.

Summary: A second funeral and a second farewell. There will not be a third.
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: I am...less than a month behind posting this one! Go me! Nobody mention that one Halloweenfic, okay?

Anyway. December 19 was the first time one of Grune's close friends died in a draft, so I definitely needed to write something for it. The picture referenced in the fic is one Seto drew for her during the horoscope event. It's now one of her treasures. (Aww.)

Summary: To make room for the other presence / We both draw back in our minds
Author's Notes: I wrote this in June 2011 or so, but didn't realise my Luceti fic was going to have such a large audience, and so I never posted it. This fic may no longer be accurate, since Grune and Dhaos' relationship has been developing slightly differently than I expected, but hey.

And so, she takes every opportunity, and then a few more, to hush her voice. If the resulting changes in Dhaos' behaviour are not intended for her, that does not mean she cannot pretend they are. )

Summary: Days after the assassination of Emperor Karl V of Malkuth, Peony confronts the first of many hard decisions that will mark his reign.
Author's Notes: This one comes from a discussion [livejournal.com profile] rallalon and I had a couple of nights ago. This aspect of Peony's role as emperor was mentioned only briefly, but it stuck with me, and I wondered: How would a man who exerted every effort to make peace between two bitter enemies react to death on a much smaller scale, and death far closer to home?

There are a few events referenced from my semi-AU Peony headcanon here. First is the assassination of Karl V, Peony's father, which I ficced about here half a year ago. Second is my own personal take on the "struggle for succession" that sent Peony to Keterburg as a child--that Karl VI, heir of Karl V, attempted to assassinate his father and was publicly beheaded. Karl V made all his remaining heirs watch to send a message, including Peony, who was eight at the time.

And before my ramblings become longer than the fic itself, I'll end here.
