Fair warning...

Should any friends or lurkers be interested, please note that my intention is to delete and purge this journal by the end of this month.



For a while, now, the archive of my fiction here has also been mirrored in my Dreamwidth account. That will remain intact, so there will be no loss of access to any stories posted here.

You can look at my Dreamwidth account here:

http://thisiszircon.dreamwidth.org/

All fiction is tagged exactly as it has been here. I am slowly updating all follow-on chapter links, though navigation through chapters by use of tags and the back button is entirely possible.

Newer fiction is being posted to my AO3 account. At the moment I have vague plans to make that my main archive, but there's a lot of stuff to upload and I'm not getting any younger...

My thanks to all who have visited my various posts at LJ over the years. It's been a delight to make your acquaintance, and to share our fandom love! Hopefully see you around on DW or AO3.

T'ra all. See you on the other side.

Fic - Harry Potter - "Cold Hearts and Muddy Understandings"

Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairings: Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger/Severus Snape
Rating: a cautious R
Timeline: Set in the aftermath of the Battle of Hogwarts.  AU, in that Snape lives.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter belongs to J. K. Rowling.


Summary:


When the dust has settled; when the spent curses in the air have faded to a prickle; when the sounds of pain and terror whimper their way to silence–
 
When the battle is over, what happens next?
 
Hermione Granger has been active in the fight against evil since she was twelve years old. With victory comes the opportunity to take stock of the more ordinary aspects to her life. She can finally consider the choices that most young women get to make: lifestyle, career, romance.
 
But the trauma she has known has left its mark. And even before her life took a turn towards constant life-or-death, Hermione was far from ordinary. Her friends are looking to their own futures. Her parents don't remember her. Her surrogate family is in mourning. The Wizarding World has always viewed her as an outsider. Hermione realises she is, in many ways, alone.
 
It does not take long before she finds herself wishing fervently for the welcome distraction of another dark wizard. Life was so much simpler when priority number one was keeping Harry Potter alive...

Fic - Doctor Who - "Colonis"

Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Seven/Ace
Rating: R
Timeline: Post-series
Disclaimer: The BBC owns Doctor Who.


Part Six of "The Moment of Awakening" series.


Summary:

Colonis: the first planet to be colonised by human beings outside of Earth's solar system.  It's all drizzle and mud, prefabricated shelters, make do and mend.  The whole place makes you feel like you're on an ill-equipped camping trip, only there's no chance of chucking it in and going home.
 
The Doctor and Ace show up alongside a boatload of new arrivals, to witness a colony about to tear itself apart.  There are rival political factions among the colonists, an unhappy indigenous species watching from the wings, and a killer eyeing up a population that is isolated, vulnerable and continually distracted.
 
The Doctor is adamant that their presence here is necessary.  Ace is soon convinced, however, that there's something he's not telling her...

RIP Bowie

Lost a day, yesterday.  Couldn't do anything: couldn't write, couldn't edit, couldn't think straight.

How can David Bowie have died?  He was not just a man, he was a force of nature.  He was elemental, I think.  Some kind of power of earth or air.

It's been a rough winter for losing iconic musicians.  By all accounts, Scott Weiland was finished off by serious addiction issues that had plagued him - and pained those closest to him - for a long time, but I just loved his voice and the music he made with STP.  I remember seeing the Pilots at Leeds T&C in the mid-nineties, when they were touring on 'Purple'.  They pulled most of the plugs halfway through and did an acoustic set, with Weiland sitting in a big old rocking chair.  One of those perfect live-music moments.

And of course, last month I raised a glass to our own beloved Lemmy (it was ginger beer - I haven't drunk alcohol since 1996, and Lemmy would surely not have approved, but I think he'd have approved even less of someone changing their lifestyle due to the opinions of others...) and felt very sad.  I saw Motorhead at the Hammy-O about 25 years ago.  They were true to their maxim: everything louder than everything else.  They were a joy to behold.

I never saw Bowie live.  By the time I was old enough to get to see him, he was doing infrequent stadium gigs.  I like things more intimate.  Now I wish I'd made an exception for him, the same way I tend to do for Maiden.

Honestly, I think I figured he'd just always be around.  Forces of nature tend towards ever-presence, do they not?

Times like this, I wish I believed in the concept of afterlife.  That'd be some heavenly open-mic night, wouldn't it?
