I...totally forgot what Rare Women called itself during the last year it ran, sorry.

I saw something that reminded me of Rare Women, and I realized I never posted a link to the fic I received from the first year that exchange started running. And I should've, because I ended up on the pinch hit list. So here is the fic:

I pretty much got sucked into trying to edit my Het Big Bang fic (and, after edits, I still need about 3K words to be at word count, wtf), my review of The Legends of Ashildr, and thinking about something for Season of Kink (kind of historical smut, woo...?!), sorry about that.

I'll post my Every Woman stuff earlier than this, I promise.

Who is Ashildr?

When the Doctor and Clara meet Ashildr (played by Maisie Williams, best known for portraying Arya Stark on Game of Thrones) in Series Nine, Ashildr is a puppet-maker in a ninth-century Viking village. Although she feels like she doesn't fit in with the villagers and is their harbinger of bad luck, she defends the village she loves against an alien warrior race known as the Mire. She uses a Mire helmet to create a sea serpent illusion to scare the Mire away from her village. However, the helmet stops her heart and she dies. Unable to accept Ashildr's death, the Doctor takes a Mire repair kit, used by the Mire to continuously repair themselves in battle, and modifies it for a human. The repair kit not only revives Ashildr, it also makes her immortal. She eventually outlives the show's semi-immortal and immortal characters, making it to the end of time. There is a cost, though: outliving everyone she loves and her limited human memory makes her jaded to the point where she renounces names and calls herself "Me."

The Legends of Ashildr covers the period between "The Girl Who Died" and "The Woman Who Lived," presenting four tales where she travels the globe and gets into trouble. A theme persists in all of these stories: greed usually claims the lives of people, either innocent or deserving of death. And no matter how many people Ashildr meets on their travels, she's the last person standing in all of them.

A note: "The Arabian Knightmare" and "The Fortunate Isles" are written in third person while "The Triple Knife" and "The Ghosts of Branscome Wood" are written in first. Also, although "The Fortunate Isles" happens after "The Triple Knife," it's the second short story in this collection. It's an interesting editorial decision, but it didn't seriously hamper my reading of this book.

Title: Return of the Immortal Viking Woman
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)/Vikings (TV)
Pairing/Characters: Ashildr | Me/Clara Oswald, Harald Finehair
Rating: Mature
Length: 2261

The Immortal Viking Claims Her Wife

Clara Oswald was giddy when she married her friend Me. But fearless raider Me has been gone so long, Me's proud arrogance is the only memory Clara retains of her. Now Clara must remarry to protect her TARDIS.

But then, on Clara's wedding day, the conquering warrior returns to gasps of horror and surprise! After all, Me was supposed to be dead, though to Clara's starved gaze Me seems very much flesh and blood...and less than impressed to find her beautiful wife intent on marrying someone else!

Notes: Fic based on the summary for Return of the Viking Warrior by Michelle Styles. For [community profile] unconventionalcourtship and [community profile] seasonofkink (square: hurt & comfort). Fic contains some references to The Legends of Ashildr, but you don't need to read that collection of short stories to understand what's going on.

Link: Also on AO3.

Hi, Every Woman creator! I'm [personal profile] merryghoul. I have a few media accounts here and there, but if you want to see what I'm into, you can check out my Pinboard: [ profile] merryghoul.

I'll start with my DNWs. I would like to not see or read about the following:
  • character bashing
  • crossovers
  • excessive whump (what I would call "characters constantly getting hurt")
  • vomitplay
  • high school/college AUs
  • mundane AUs, especially for the sci-fi and fantasy canons I've requested
  • curtainfic/curtainart
  • anything dealing with non-canon impregnation, babies, and/or children (I'm fine with things like Helena being pregnant in Orphan Black, or Fiona raising Charlie in Burn Notice)
  • fics written in the second person
  • works based around songs

    For this exchange, I'm requesting fanart and fanfic!

    So here is what I'm requesting this year:

    Fandoms: Orphan Black, Doctor Who (1963 and 2005), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Luther, The Librarians, Burn Notice, American Horror Story: Hotel, Game of Thrones )

    1) Will claim a smaller table at DW All Sorts soon, since I've somehow found myself working on a fic I really should not be working on at the moment. I think that and my Unconventional Courtship fic (seriously-treated crack about Me and Clara having a child and raising it as a Viking) could slot in easily in the table I'm eyeing. Same pairing.

    2) I'm not finishing River's Five, and since I think my plot to my Het Big Bang fic is too similar to River's Five, I'm pulling River's Five off of AO3. (Which means I'll be doing Het Big Bang. Pairing will most likely be Eleven/River again, with the aim to go 25K.)

    3) Eep, haven't linked to my Smut Swap fic yet. Maybe, at this rate, I'll wait until creator reveals? I also did manage to finish my fic for Smut Swap as well, so I'll be linking to that!

    I think these are all my fics from the bangs [ profile] nickygabriel. Locking so at least one of these fics don't accidentally end up on [ profile] torchwood_three. (If not, will add to that list.) Will unlock in a couple of days or so.

    This is an update of where some of these fics are, since a lot of the places I've posted the fics have been deleted.

  • Call a Cab [Torchwood/Luther] (part of the Life is All series), for casestory: LiveJournal (part 1, part 2), AO3, Teaspoon
  • Gelato in the Grove [Burn Notice], for Kid!Fic Big Bang: Dreamwidth, AO3
  • We're the McBrides [Burn Notice], for journeystory: Dreamwidth, AO3
  • merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (Default)
    I haven't seen any notices on the corresponding DW mirrors for [ profile] nickygabriel's big bangs, but on LJ nickygabriel is deleting several of their communities for their bangs. A lot of their bangs that are to be deleted are listed on the profile for kidficstory here (note: the last three are not bangs, and [ profile] marvel_slash isn't owned by nickygabriel).

    Nickygabriel says all of these communities will be deleted on March 24th, so that gives you time to find any fics you need before the comms are shut down.

    I have no idea if this affects the AO3 groups for these bangs as well. All I know is that the big bang comms will be deleted.

    As for me, I may make a list of my fics affected from these closures here, since a lot of links for those bangs are now borked because of either stuff I've deleted or stuff other people have deleted.
