FAN FICTION WORKS:
LEGEND OF THE SEEKER
SEEKER OF TRUTH series: My continuation of the series via material from the books, and my own ideas.
1. The Ties That Bind (complete) - Picks up from where "TEARS" left off. This is basically my attempt at continuing the story from books through the lens of the TV universe. This story is loosely based on part of STONE OF TEARS.
2. In The Winds (complete) - Picks up immediately where The Ties That Bind left off. Now that Richard is the Lord Rahl, will he and Kahlan finally be able to be together, or will an ill omen in the night sky destroy everything. This one is going to be more intense, considering the subject matter this one is loosely based on is BLOOD OF THE FOLD and TEMPLE OF THE WINDS (if you've read the books, you know what I mean). So I might have to rate it M, just in case.
3. The Chimes Toll A Firestorm (on hiatus) - Sequel to In The Winds. Now that they are married, will Richard and Kahlan finally find happiness, or will an invasion by an evil foe and an insidious plot by a Sister of the Dark ruin everything? (This is to round up my SEEKER OF TRUTH trilogy of including the book material--this one being very loosely based on SOUL OF THE FIRE and the CHAINFIRE trilogy, but with a twist. I apologize for the delay in this one; for some reason I get hit with writer's block more on this particular story than on other, I don't know why, but I just do.)
CONSEQUENCES series: A trilogy (plus bonus background story) involving my AU-2x01 MARKED storyline.
1. Unintended Consequences (complete) - 2012 LOTSEEKER AWARD 1st Place Winner (BEST AU) - Kahlan relented to her duties and returned to Aydindril after the events of MARKED 2x01 . Richard and Kahlan reunite five months later, but things have changed that may destroy their love. And the Seeker's quest may not be over. (Goes AU from MARKED)
2. Soul Fusion (complete) - 2012 LOTSEEKER AWARD 1st Pace Winner (BEST ROMANCE) - Sequel to Unintended Consequences. Zedd warned them about the effects of the Soul Fusion spell, but Richard and Kahlan did not heed his warnings. And the consequences are unlike any thing they could imagine. This one is intended to be a little more lighter than Unintended Consequences.
3. Riccar and Caylinn: The First Gifted (in progress) - More tales of Riccar and Caylinn, and their quest for the Soul Fusion spell. Part of the CONSEQUENCES series. Mainly original characters Riccar/Caylinn, but will have hints of Richard/Kahlan. Tie-in to Soul Fusion. This will also be acting as a lead-in to Consequences.
4. Consequences (planned) - Conclusion to the CONSEQUENCES series. Will take place a couple years after Soul Fusion.
SECRETS series: an AU-1x15 CONVERSION storyline
1. Silk and Sand (complete) - After discovering the inner storm of the Con Dar within, Kahlan Amnell, the Mother Confessor, is captured and separated from her Seeker. Alone, and without her powers, she must do whatever is necessary to survive. Takes places during season 1.
2. Leather and Agiel (in progress) - Lost and alone, separated from Richard, Kahlan must rescue and befriend a tormented women in the clutches of a madman. Doing so may prove to be the boon that helps her find and save her Seeker. Post-CURSED (1x19)
MULTI-CHAPTER STORIES: Most of these will be from prompts/requests.
1. The Mistake (complete) - Title Image - Spring 2011 LOTSEEKERFIC AWARDS 2nd Place Winner - Set during "BOUND" (which obviously--for those who have read the books--was LotS's version of FAITH OF THE FALLEN). What if Richard relents to Nicci's suggestion that they make Kahlan feel better? What will be Kahlan's reaction when her Seeker returns to her after he has slept with another? Richard/Nicci, Richard/Kahlan. For BaneoftheWicked, for the request of a Richard/Nikki fic that got me thinking.
2. Tears of Glass (complete) - Spring 2011 LOTSEEKERFIC AWARDS2nd PlaceWinner - What if the spell Nicci used on the glass to blind Richard was laced with subtractive magic, making it impossible for Zedd to heal Richard's eyes? To love4lots, for the request.
3. The Gamble (outlined) - A different take on "Touched" and beyond. Requested by ForeverRK.
1. Kahlan's Big News - This came about because of my frustrations of not thinking there was enough Richard and Kahlan reuniting times at the end of Confessor. So the fic is based more on the books than the TV show, though the characters look like the TV series, meaning Kahlan has blue eyes instead of green and Richard brown instead of grey, like they are in the book.
2. Reflections - Just something I thought would be interesting. Darken Rahl reflecting on his childhood and his rise to power. Takes places before the series begins. Probably more book-Rahl than TV-Rahl.
3. A Love That Transcends Time - Verna and Warren's night together. Occurs somewhere between Ch. 7 and Ch. 11 of my story IN THE WINDS. I really loved Verna and Warren in the books and was sad for how it ended. So I wanted to give them the night of passion they deserved.
4. The 12 Days of Confessor Day - The 12 Days of Christmas - Seeker style. What does Kahlan get from the Creator on the day to celebrate the birth of the Confessors? This was just something that had been mulling around in my brain for a while with all the X-Mas music going around during the holidays. Just for a little fun and holiday cheer.
5. Birthday Surprise - It’s Richard's birthday and Kahlan wants to make it a memorable one. I wrote this as a birthday present for one of my most dedicated readers.
6. Hide and Seek - SongFic; Richard and Kahlan play a game of hide and seek that turns into something a little bit more fun. (Featuring “I Touch Myself” by the Divinyls)
7. Lost and Found - After a crippling attack, Richard and Kahlan return to Hartland. (This one was written for ForeverRK)
8. What Almost Happened - 2012 LOTSEEKER AWARD 2nd Place Winner (R/K Canon) - Richard and Kahlan deal with the fallout of being possessed by Kieran and Vivian. TAG to REVENANT. Thanks to klynnrhiannon, for the suggestion.
9. The Day For Fathers - 2012 LOTSEEKER AWARD Nominee (Oneshot/Drabble) - 15 years after they have sealed the rift, Richard and Kahlan enjoy a special day with their family. A/N: I wrote this in honor of Father’s Day.
10. Practice Makes Perfect - Richard decides to teach Kahlan how to use a bow and arrow. He gets more than he bargained for. A/N: Even though this is two chapter in length, I consider it a one-shot.
11. Picnic Surprise - Richard surprises Kahlan with a picnic on a day marked for lovers. Kahlan then surprises Richard. For ForeverRK and the members of BOTS and JAMA. This is a tag/add-on to ForeverRK's "Valentine's Day Surprise" (I still consider this a one-shot even though it had 2 chapters)
12. Rockslide - Richard and Kahlan are separated from their companions by a rockslide. Written in honor of the "birthday" of Legend of the Seeker. Title Image made by ForeverRK.
13. Solstice Miracle - 2012 LOTSEEKER AWARD Nominee (Portrayal - Richard) - Set after THE DAY FOR FATHERS; The Cypher-Amnells celebrate the Winter Solstice. Plus plan a surprise for Cara.
14. Caving In - ONE-SHOT; In the cave, temptation takes hold, and an offer made by Richard is hard to refuse. Takes place during 2x20 ETERNITY.
15. Three Wishes - Richard finds a leprechaun and is granted three wishes.
16. In Silence - Richard confronts Kahlan after his rescue from the clutches of the Mord'Sith Denna. ONE-SHOT TAG to 1x08 DENNA.
