Author has written 31 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Temeraire, and Avengers.
I have been writing fiction, derivative and original, for about 20 years and in real life am a fast and furious technical writer of very dull non-fiction material. I am currently writing mostly in the Narnia fandom as this is one place my children and their friends (and parents) are not frequenting. To be upfront, this vision is not my children's Narnia and may not be yours. I am an adult, writing adult characters for an adult reader. This is Narnia for grown ups.
Firiel-Archer drew FABULOUS ART FOR ME!! You can see her work here,.
Triggers, pairings, and warnings are discussed below.
If you are new to my work, I do not recommend first trying to read The Horse and her Girl, or Black as Rat and Crow, or I love not man the less but nature more. I know they are shorter but they are set against a much larger vision and I've gotten a lot of angry messages about the stories. Herd Mentality is in a category by itself and discussed further below.
Reading order: I had a long description of reading order and have since deleted it. The first 4 chapters of either The Stone Gryphon, Part 1 or By Royal Decree are good places to start. The following are standalones, more or less: Under Cover; Food For Thought; Maenad of the Maquis; Mazy Rings, Troublesome Things; Follow the Star; Light to the Misled and Lonely Traveler; Come Boldy Unto The Throne of Grace; and Thimbles and Thunderstorms.
If you start diving into The Stone Gryphon, at some point during Part 2, The Queen Susan in Tashbaan, you'll probably want to start reading the Narnia side, By Royal Decree and the (in progress) Harold and Morgan: Not A Romance. There is a chronological reading order on my Live Journal,If you have a question, drop me a line.
If you find the length daunting, you can try this short cut http://rthstewart.livejournal.com/30663.html
A Key to the people and places of The Queen Susan In Tashbaan is at my Live Journal account at:.
All of Food For Thought including the pictures and proper formatting (which this site keeps stripping out), can be found here, http://jess-in-time.livejournal.com/737.html
Light to the Misled and Lonely Traveler is a really cracky crossover -- Besides Narnia and Harry Potter, it also includes Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Doctor Who, Warehouse 13, Artemis Fowl, Thursday Next, and Merlin.
There are now two AUs of the Stone Gryphon series -- the Commoner Royalty, Everybody Lives Nobody Dies Spare Oom AU; and the Everybody Lives Nobody Leaves Narnia AU.
Reviews and Recs: I really value the communities that build around fic. I'm glad to discuss these stories or anything else in PMs, email or on my Live Journal. I have enabled anonymous posting here and on Live Journal. I usually will respond to anonymous review questions on my LJ, tag anonymous reviewers. I'd rather hear something negative than nothing at all and even a review that states: "ick" lets me know that you are still here, if unhappy about it. As a perusal of reviews will show you, I don't delete the negative, either.
However, I will delete homophobic anonymous reviews. I will report signed homophobic reviews to site moderators as abusive and violations of the Terms of Service. Readers and would be readers should have the freedom to click on a story I write and not be subjected to hate speech.
I have historically read and reviewed a lot of fic in the interest of building community and to support young and new authors and under-reviewed stories. I do this a lot less than I used to because recipients of my reviews and recommendations have taken to responding by criticizing me and my work as shameful and un-Christian. As a result, I've become much stingier in my praise as I dislike when a recipient whom I praised reciprocates by impugning my integrity and morality. Nevertheless, I believe in reciprocity, I like to read and support the work of others who support me, and I cherish the people I meet along the way. If you do write, let me know and assuming that you are not condemning me I will try to R&R to return the favor.
Triggers, warnings, tags, pairings, etc.: The vast majority of my work is gen/Bob, not romance. (With the exception of Harold and Morgan: Not A Romance and Maenad of the Maquis). Pairings, where present, are usually M/F, though there are a few F/F and M/M references in a few paragraphs, mostly Apostolic Way and I love not man the less but nature more.
With one important exception (see below), no dub con, incest, cutting, torture, physical abuse, or child abuse. No non-canonical canon character death (OCs do die). Includes POCs, theology, environmental stewardship, espionage, dodgy acts in pursuit of moral means, biology, ethology, benevolent Lion deity, terrible comma usage, and lots of history/detail fetish. If hummingbirds or otters are present, you can expect swearing; also true-to-period swearing in the final chapters of Rat and Sword Go To War. One terminally ill OC harbors occasional depression and suicidal ideation. (If this last one is triggering, drop me a line and I'll let you know how to avoid it). Ages are a little vague -- on further reflection, a few paragraphs in I love not man the less but nature more and Rat and Sword Go To War might involve characters who are 16-18.
The exception to the above warnings and triggers is Herd Mentality. That story mounts a critique of sexism, abusive patriarchy, purity culture, and rape culture. It includes, in Chapter 2, emotional and physical abuse and rape and, though the victim is not human, the effects and impacts are the same. If you have questions about the story, please PM me or skip it.
And that, my friend, should tell you what you need to know. If you still aren't sure, drop me a line and I'm happy to guide you.
