Just breaking the silence for a couple of things :)
The first is that I now have an archive of our own account
, where I've uploaded a couple of new fics for the Vorkosigan series that haven't been uploaded here. White Knights
is an Ivan-centric story, based around an AU where Simon Illyan and Alys Vorpartil marry when Ivan is five. Multi-chaptered work in progress. In this Valley of Dying Stars
focuses around Simon Illyan, Count Piotr Vorkosigan, and the spectre of Emperor Ezar. One-shot.
The other thing is - remember that fic, Empire, that I started in 2005? Man that was a piece of crap. Then remember my attempt to fix it by starting a re-write in 2007? Man, that too is a piece of crap, but it's saved by the fact that it's only 1 chapter long. Well, I attempted to continue the re-write lately, and then it grew. And grew. And Empire is now - I wouldn't say it's a completely different creature, because the setup is the same, the themes that I threw in in 2007 are the same, and the end point is the same (although the actual ending has changed. Again. But it's a variation on a theme. But anyway
) - the number of themes and issues that it deals with have multiplied several times. ( Cut for excited author!babble. Sorry, no fic hereCollapse )
