ODDS AND ENDS
Hi, I'm Calyn. Girl, Catholic, American, born in the latter half of the 1900s. I don't write a whole lot anymore—I've kind of realized that I find continually messing around with my ideas and universes more fun than actually setting them down in text.
I also have a Tumblr (calyns-corner) that I use for fic-related pictures and other info that would otherwise clutter up ANs. When you see me mention a tmblr co link, that's where it's sending you. Full size versions of all my story covers (and some previous versions) can be found on my Tumblr under the tag "image: story cover". And speaking of links, check my poll for some clickable ones to the tumblr itself, Narnian months, the Narnian eras I reference in Azure and Azure Expanse, and the story cover tag.
Universal disclaimer: none of it's mine, except the bits that are.
Current writing priority: finishing unfinished things and also Adventures in Narnia
What's Coming To You (FIF 2)
Major: Narnia (book), Coraline (book/movie), H2O: Just Add Water (live action)
Minor: LOTR (B/M), Hobbit (B), Harry Potter (B), Hunger Games (B), Sailor Moon (anime and PGSM), Circle of Magic, Twilight, Portal/Portal 2, Supernatural (Seasons 1-5), Frozen II
Anti: Walden's "Narnia" movies, Hobbit (M), Mako Mermaids, Harry Potter (M), Brave, Sailor Moon Crystal (seasons 1-2), Sherlock, Supernatural (Season 6 onward), Frozen
Darkness Universe (DU): This is my personal and primary Narnian universe, and it's most easily defined as "bookverse except this chick called Ailena is also there." For most intents and purposes, it is functionally identical to bookverse. As a basic primer: Ailena ("AYE-len-na") is an ageless teenager (except during GA and AR), has no romantic attachments to anyone ever, is subordinate to Peter (despite the informal title of "high Queen" she ends up with due to seniority), and is partly responsible for Lewis writing the DU Chronicles. She usually exists quietly and almost never alters the canon story in a significant way, a deliberate choice on my part because I love Lewis' Narnia and wish to observe it, not rewrite it. She also has a backstory I've occasionally dropped vague hints about, which is incredibly cheesy. (Really the whole AU is, but I've reached the point where I feel comfortable saying "yes it's cheese but it's my cheese and I love it anyway".)
Fics in the DU:
This Is, It Was Chapter 2 (some details are no longer accurate)
Sunshine 2.0 Universe (S2): This is the revised version of the Narnia/Twilight crossover universe I created for Sunshine (1.0) in 2012. Right now it's referred to as 2.0 to distinguish it from the original version, but if I ever manage to actually get Sunshine itself revised and reposted, then the revision and universe will just be called "Sunshine"/SS and the original fic will be relabeled "Sunshine (alpha version)" or something similar. Anyway, S2 is the result of a a totalcrackship taken way too seriously and then massively edited. TLDR: Edward "Ed" Cullen had an almost entirely non-romantic relationship with Lucy Pevensie over her entire life (the "almost" happens very late in her life, is entirely one-sided, and remains unconfessed), which significantly changed his own life because she's just kind of special and I love her, and also Susan Pevensie is Isobelle Swan's grandmother. You can read Sunshine (1.0) for the original 2012 version, but the universe has shifted wildly since then and a significant chunk of that fic is no longer accurate.
Fics in S2 AU:
THE FIF AND THE CCDE
I have two groups of spitefics (mostly—Inkwoven happened because I was disappointed, rather than angry, and Had I Lain happened because I freaking sobbed) posted here, the Fix-it Files (FIF) and the Confederation of Crappy Denouement Eliminators (CCDE). They were and are intended primarily as personal catharsis, so they aren't necessarily the highest quality stuff. The FIF are an otherwise-unrelated collection of "this is the way it should have happened," whereas the CCDE are a chronological series of "I am sending multiverse agents into this to fix it."
The CCDE also has a sister organization, the Coalition of Canon Defenders (CCD), who make similar journeys into fanwork instead of original work. While I have yet to write any CCD fics (and likely wouldn't post them here even if I did), since they are closely related groups, CCD agents sometimes appear in CCDE jobs.
FIF 1: Gonespell, AU scene (Nightspell, Leah Cypess)
CCDE 1: Venient Vengeance, AU scene/sequel (Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn)
ABOUT THOSE "INCOMPLETE" FICS...
The Muse persists. It goes on living, though neglected, waiting for you to give it air or die without giving it utterance.
Azure and Azure Expanse: these will never be marked "complete", as they have no defined end or overarching plot. Further chapters will be added if and when I write them.
Call Me Katie: man, this was the first fic I ever posted on FF, and I had all 38 chapters of it named and outlined way back in 2009, as well as a multi-story AU version (the Severed Souls Saga) planned. It still gets favorited and followed once in a while, which both amuses and mystifies me. I was a fanfic noob writing it though, and I am no longer a noob. While it holds a special place in my heart, and I'd really like to finish it one day, the truth is I probably won't. If it's ever updated, it will likely be "I am abandoning this but here's what I had planned."
Sunshine: hoo boy, this thing. I think I can safely say this is the most divisive thing I've ever written (even more than Dear Authors), mostly between people who understood what I was going for and people who really, really didn't. I created this Narnia/Twilight AU for kicks from a random contest prompt at the height of my anti-Twilight phase. But then I started wondering what would happen if I took it seriously, and kept wondering, and then screwed around with a lot of Twilight stuff for fun, and the result is that the AU has changed and expanded significantly since I wrote and posted this original oneshot—and it's the kind of "significantly" that means almost nothing in the Twilight books still happens. I do have the beginnings of a Susan POV sequel called "Sundark" that I started before the AU changed so drastically, but I'm reluctant to post that without being able to also direct people to the new and improved Sunshine, and honestly? I'm not sure I'll ever get around to actually writing it down.
The Last Guide: I'd like to get at least one more chapter on this, or an addition to the current one, mostly because I'd like to actually explain the character. But hey, as of 8-3-22, it finally has a title! You know! Twelve years after I wrote it! THIS IS PROGRESS
