10:24 pm - A mentor & protege story for darkfic fans: Bard of Pain (The Three Lands)

duskpeterson

*</a>
Collapse )

In the battle-weary lands of the Great Peninsula, only one fate is worse than being taken prisoner by the Lieutenant: being taken prisoner if you are the Lieutenant.

As the world's most skilled torturer struggles with his change of fortune, he finds that his fate is intertwined with the destinies of an idealistic army commander, an affectionate prisoner, and a protégé who reveres the Lieutenant's art . . . but is on the wrong side of the conflict.

The beginning of the end for him (or so it seemed at the time) came in the moment that he stepped into the shadow of Capital Mountain and was assaulted by a stranger.

12:45 am - FIC: The Unanswered Question (The Eternal Dungeon; original fiction)

duskpeterson
Title: The Unanswered Question.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, Dreamwidth blog, InsaneJournal mirror blog, LiveJournal mirror blog, duskpetersonbooks (e-mail list with announcements of my fiction).
Series: The Eternal Dungeon, a historical fantasy series set in a land where the psychologists wield whips. You don't need to have read the rest of the series to understand this story.
Categories: Original fiction. Male/male platonic feelings (main plot) and male/male erotic attraction (subplots). Mentor fiction (that's the platonic part) and prisoner fiction.
Note: This is my 2009 holiday gift story to my readers. You can see the prompts from my readers that inspired the novella and my response to their prompts (both with major spoilers, so they're best read after you've finished the story).
Rating: PG-13.
Warnings.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Summary: No weapons, no allies, and no guarantees that he will survive the test.

He was weaponless. Or rather, not quite weaponless, for he knew what he was capable of doing with his body, but he bore no blade, nor any whip, nor any lead pipe with which to stun his victim, nor any rope with which to strangle the victim . . . The number of potential weapons he had deliberately laid aside was frighteningly high.

He waited until his prisoner had subsided to shuddering gasps, and then leaned forward to wipe the blade once more. "We're bards of pain," he said, "and of all the bards in the world, you are the greatest."

The instruments on the wall, the tools on the table – they were as familiar to him as the toys of his childhood. He wondered, dimly, why his heart pounded in his chest, as though he were in a strange place.

jan_aq
I need moderators for my Gen Recs archive. Any takers?

You'd have to read the links people post and make sure they are appropriate for the site, and that the warnings, ratings, ect are correct.

8:42 pm - Harry Potter fanfic challenge - parents & guardians

lothy
The latest challenge at my HP comm thematic_hp is parents & guardians, and I thought some people in this community might be interested.

Any type of story is welcome as long as it involves a parent or guardian. The "child" doesn't have to actually be a kid, although of course s/he can be.

As of today, you can submit prompts for this challenge.

From 3 October you can claim a prompt (you don't have to join the comm) and it'll end on 30 November, although we always welcome late submissions.

11:31 am - Mentorfic challenge at a gen Harry Potter comm

duskpeterson
I'd placed a request at my powerfic comm for recs of master/apprentice tales, and lothy alerted me to the fact that the June 2007 challenge at omniocular, a gen Harry Potter comm, is devoted to mentors.

She also referred me over to your list of Harry & Snape apprentice fics, jan_aq. I felt rather stupid for not thinking to check your site first.

10:05 pm - Adult-adult mentor fiction?

duskpeterson
I'm looking for some adult-adult mentor fiction (as opposed to adult-youth). Any fandom or original fiction will do; the characters can be of any gender. Does anyone have any recommendations?

4:50 am - Dragonfly's Lil' Daniel Fic Recs (SG1)

jan_aq
I stumbled upon this site just now.

Lil' Daniel Fan Fiction page by Dragonfly.

It's a page with a whole bunch of recs where Daniel Jackson is a child, and (mostly) Jack O'Neil takes care of him. Seems to have a Yahoo group linked as well.

I found the page by visiting Dragonfly's Ancient Obsessions SG1 page.

Also, check out QuinGem's Little Danny and Friends fic page.
