Night on Fic Mountain is over! On the whole, I enjoyed the experience of modding it and I'd like to do it again next year.
I wrote two fics and got two fics.
First my gifts, because they were both amazing! your ex-lover is dead
(Orphan Black, gen, 2 693 words)
Art (who is an idiot) had been goddamn in love with her.
It's post-canon fic about Art and Sarah and the hole Beth left in both their lives. Read it, it's great. I like the little glimpses of the post-canon world shown in it and all little nods to canon (Tony's in it!).The Man Who Would Be Caliph
(Demon Knights, gen, 715 words)
"It's a - never mind." Al Jabr gestured dismissively. "What you're telling me is that if I assure people I have no desire to be caliph, they will assume that I am lying and that I do, in fact, wish to be caliph. And yet, if I do not, they will assume the exact same thing."
AL JABR! It's fic set in the 30 year timeskip and gives an explanation for why Al Jabr ended up being Caliph. It has to do with science, because, with Al Jabr, of course it does.
As for the fic I wrote:Two for Joy
(Loki: Agent of Asgard/Journey into Mystery, gen, 3 389 words)
This is a story about Loki. It doesn't feature quite as much lying as you might expect based on that. Verity won't let it.
I wrote this for snickfic
. This is the first time I was assigned to write for someone who had previously written for me. This fic was a blast to write! The structure was the first thing I thought of about it (Verity interrupting the narrator, to be exact) and the story kind of built itself around it, from a bunch of various stuff. The Amber Room comes from the fact that I was listening to a podcast about it at some point, the Treaty of St-Clair-Sur-Epte is the only very obscure I could think of off the top of my head (I have been waiting years to use it in a story. Years
.) and then I threw in a bunch of references to the greater Marvel universe and to various popculture things (Star Wars, Frozen, Jurassic Park, for example) that weren't too distracting, hopefully. I really hope that even though the fic acts as a fix-it for JiM there was enough context between the fic and canon that it was understandable without reading JiM. We built this city on rock 'n' roll
(Sucker Punch (2011), gen, 1 022 words)
The city at the end of the train line burst into flame the first time Araya touched the Moon.
I wrote this for morbane
, because they didn't have any fic written fic written for them, which was a shame because a) they wrote a fic and b) they were the best co-mod my newbie self could have hoped for. Sucker Punch was the only one of their fandoms I could consume and write fic for in the time that was left. I didn't manage to post the fic before we opened the collection, but I posted it, and that's all that matters. It's backstory/worldbuildy fic for one the levels of reality in the movie, because I was really intrigued by their prompt about the city at the end of the train line. (I suspect I was not as stealth an author as I could have been.)
