merryghoul: River closeup (River closeup)
This fic was originally posted on 22 December 2011 for [ profile] christmasbang on LJ, a now defunct Christmas-themed bang, obviously. I decided to repost this to clean up some of the HTML and because I wanted the hyperlinks to reflect my username change without redirects. The header has also been changed because the artist who worked on the art for this fic deleted their journal. (And there's nothing to warn for in this fic, really.) I never saved the art, alas.

Never mind, I forgot to friends-lock this before today's Who Daily update. Ignore what I had in this first paragraph of the post.

Earlier this year, I posted River's Five, which was supposed to be for [ profile] dw_allsorts. Each chapter corresponded to a different prompt. I burned out on the fic and eventually finished that prompt table I grabbed from that comm with various ficlets and drabbles. My intent was to use parts of the fic for Het Big Bang (which prefers WIPs to not be on AO3 before their archive goes live), but that never materialized.

I decided to repost "River's Five" to AO3, since I've given up on finishing the fic and/or trying to edit what I have into a fic that's mostly made up of the older story. Here's the new link to the fic:

Of course I would forget about this fic just in time to not forward date it so it can possibly be seen on AO3. My luck. But it's live, and I did go through my edits before posting the fic to AO3. Any errors remaining in the fic are my own.

I already posted this on AO3, but for my Seasons of Kink and HC Bingo cards (for the prompts "obscenity" and "dub-con," respectfully), I also wanted to post this here.

This was also written for a mini-fest that's currently being held at [ profile] dw_guestfest, if you'd like to play.

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.
