nonisland: Camelot in red and gold, with text "make your own destiny" ([Merlin] make your own destiny if you ca)
fandom: Merlin
rating: teen+ audiences
characters/pairings: Mithian/Vivian, Mithian&Rodor, Arthur/Vivian, mentions of Arthur/Gwen
length: ~7K words
content notices: deals heavily with canonical mind control and references canonical mutually non-consensual kissing due to same, also contains [discussed and agreed-upon in advance] kissing to break a spell
summary: Mithian is surprised at how much it hurts when Vivian comes back from Camelot talking of nothing but Arthur.
notes: Plot-compliant with 2.10 “Sweet Dreams”, but not quite with 4.11 “The Hunter’s Heart”. I owe a debt of gratitude to [ profile] versaphile for their map of Albion, although I picked and chose as I wanted/needed from there and from canon both re: the layout of Albion. I would also like to thank [ profile] lady_ragnell for continuing to be the most patient sounding board/cheer squad anyone could wish, for helping me sort out the politics of Albion, and for unsticking the story even before she beta-read it on appallingly short notice. Written for [ profile] untold_legends, for the square “against all odds” on my [community profile] trope_bingo card, and for #6 (“Ours”) of [community profile] 100_women table #8. Title from Lady Gaga’s “No Floods”, because this is me writing Vivian. (I really ought to break that habit at some point.)
ao3 crosspost: here (contains additional worldbuilding natter in the endnotes)

And she’s too late, anyway, and a princess may love where she chooses but a queen never. It feels suddenly, terribly unfair that Mithian has made herself a queen-yet-to-be and never allowed herself to notice why she didn’t mind Vivian’s cheerful self-centeredness. )
nonisland: Helen, as seen in the 2003 film Troy, standing alone in the middle of an empty sunstruck street ([Greek myth] Helen of Troy)
fandom: Greek mythology (literature?)
rating: teen+ audiences
characters/pairings: Cassandra/Helen of Troy; some canonical relationships mentioned
length: ~2000 words
content notices: referenced future canonical character deaths; discussion of Nice Guy™ism (Apollo, re: Cassandra, if that clarifies for you); war
summary: Two princesses of Troy, both used and discarded by the gods.
notes: Written for Femslash February, for [ profile] halfamoon, and for the square “friends to lovers” on my [community profile] trope_bingo card. Title from Sara Teasdale’s “Helen of Troy”.
ao3 crosspost: here

The smile she tries to form is kind, the effort in it kinder still, and Helen values kindness so much more than beauty. )

[muffled sounds of [personal profile] nonisland being buried under an avalanche of cards and tables and other things of things to write]

Am I posting this so I can be held accountable for it instead of forgetting about it like the last bingo card I had? MAYBE. )

Also, I'm not precisely saying I will take requests, but I am open to any suggestions you have, especially since I tend to do better at writing things if I know I'm not the only one who wants to read them! (Though I already have Plans for "au: fairy tale/myth". *fingersteeple*)
