This is the year in which I defaulted on my assignment and wrote two last-minute treats.

A Prelude to the Adventures of the Boatperson of Heaven is a Chinese mythology fic based on the story of Qixi, written for [archiveofourown.org profile] lnhammer. I loved his prompt, which was to ask about the boatman who in some story variants ferries the Cowherd to see the Weaver every Qixi, and kind of took it and ran. I had a ton of fun writing this and have totally handwaved any chronology errors by hoping that time in Heaven runs a bit differently.

Dreams of Flesh and Blood is a Black Jewels fic written for [archiveofourown.org profile] Morbane, who wanted to know about landen or less powerful Blood in the universe. I love this, since that what I want to know about the world (that, and I just want more fic that toys with the rules of the world, like same-sex romances and genderqueer characters and etc.). This is just a slip of a fic, but it was nice going back to the idtastic source I loved in high school and messing with it.
