nocowardsoul: ([gb] damn you)
One of my bad habits is that instead of making a new text file, I open an old file and add the list/fic/meta to it. So sometimes I open something and go, "Oh, that's where the Beyond the Western Sea Hogwarts AU is." What follows here is a draft of my 2014 rarewomen fic, "Second Impressions" when it was in Nazca's POV instead of Sabetha's. I think it might be better this way.

ETA: The "three pounds, six shillings" was a placeholder, obviously.

(I've never done multiple cut tags on Dreamwidth - no, wait, I did for the May Alcott post. Okay, let's hope I remember how to do them right.)

Republic of Thieves! It was better than Red Seas Under Red Skies, and Sabetha was great. There were two things I think would have been nice.Read more... )

I also read Steven Brust's The Paths of the Dead. Cool to see young Morrolan, Teldra and Zerika, enjoyed reading about the main four again. Looked for Ibronka/Roaana fic and there was none. Might write it myself once I'm done with the series. There was one line in the foreword that confused me: "Paarfi also lectures on writing at academies around the city, and especially provides encouragement to young women, whose voices are so underrepresented in our fiction." Dragaera is a gender-egalitarian society, so why are young women underrepresented? Maybe it's the young part and not the women part? I don't know.

Spoilers for both it and its sequel, a bit of speculation on the third, and some close reads on the Barsavi siblings for fic purposes. he planned to spend those three seconds getting strangled )

Now I really need to update [community profile] historicalyafen, and then I have some homework. When that's finished I might start A Game of Thrones.

Edit: "Whatever eye trouble the old Madam Barsavi had borne had been passed to all three of her surviving children." That suggests one or more that didn't survive. Might have to add that to the head canon.
