length: ~450 words
content notices: really not sure how to phrase this, but Anna is sort of displeased with how her self is interacting (through her body) with everything else. dysphoria issues?
summary: Feelings, cleverly disguised as wingfic. It’s a lot more about the feelings than I intended it to be, though.
notes: do I know when in canon this is set? no. do I care? no. why do demons have wings? because. written for [livejournal.com profile] spnfemslashweek, at the suggestion/prompt of [archiveofourown.org profile] crowleyshouseplant (who also acted as beta). also for #06 (“Gentle”) of the Women Are Awesome prompt table at [community profile] hooked_on_heroines, and for #29 (“unguarded touch”) of my buffet table from [livejournal.com profile] fc_smorgasbord. title and cut-text from Poets of the Fall’s “War”.

fandom: Merlin
rating: general audiences
characters/pairings: Gwen/Morgana
length: ~950 words
content notices: none!
summary: pre-series fluff in which Gwen’s historically-unlikely literacy is explained
notes: written for the [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin prompt “Gwen/Morgana. Right, so apparently Gwen knows how to read! Want maybe Morgana teaching her, or Gwen reading something bawdy in bed, please. :)” (I, continuing to fail to grasp the purpose of a kinkmeme, went with the former option), for #08 (“Learning”) of the Women Are Awesome prompt table at [community profile] hooked_on_heroines, and for #13 (“island of light”) of my buffet table from [livejournal.com profile] fc_smorgasbord. I forgot we had information on Gwen’s childhood in canon, so consider this a(n accidental) canon AU. I should probably also mention I know nothing about adult literacy education and Google was really unhelpful, so I apologize for any errors/inaccuracies. title from the Monotones’ “Book of Love”, and the passage Gwen and Morgana are reading at the end is from (Patricia Terry’s translation of) Marie de France’s “Chevrefoil” because historical accuracy is something that happens to other people.

notes: written for the [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin prompt “Arthur/Freya. When Arthur dies and goes to Avalon, he meets Freya. They bond over missing Merlin.” for the sake of the timeline of this particular fic, I have chosen to ignore the actual biographical data on Geoffrey of Monmouth (I’ve also incorporated a few other things which are not, strictly speaking, factual), as well as the time, from context, in which Merlin is probably supposed to take place. title from Leonard Cohen’s “Love Calls You By Your Name”.

summary: History is written by the victors.
notes: this is a much-too-short look at the way the show’s morality seems protagonist-defined instead of objective—an awareness I usually try to suppress. written for #15 (“no one mourns the wicked”) of my buffet table [LJ|DW] from [livejournal.com profile] fc_smorgasbord. title and cut text from/slightly paraphrasing “No One Mourns the Wicked” from Wicked.

summary: there’s a reason fine ladies don’t dress themselves.
notes: this is the show that gave us Morgana in a red halter dress in the first episode.
