Author has written 4 stories for Laws of Magic.
Oh. Hello. Um.
Name's Nadia. I've never really been here before. Around the internet I go by rejectess, hoc_voluerunt and CuddlyTogas. I'm a university student in Sydney, Australia, and I'm here to post fanfiction concerning the Laws of Magic series by Michael Pryor.
I've also written a lot for the Sherlock Holmes fandom, mostly in canon or BBC Sherlock, though most of my stuff is old and terrible, and thus confined to LJ obscurity; my primary place for posting fic is now on AO3.
I suppose that's all, really. Expect slash.
Some Author's Notes (SPOILER ALERT)
OH GOD MY PRECIOUS INDENTS, WHERE HAVE THEY GONE?! D8
Cloak and Dagger
This works on a timeline that assumes that war broke out in early August, 1911. It makes sense, trust me - it just takes a lot of explaining.
Chapter 4: May, 1884
The spell Pompey uses to create the door works off the theory that walls have a tendency to separate rooms, while doors tend to join them. Pompey applied the inverse of the Law of Propensity to the wall to make it do the opposite of what a wall usually does - connect two rooms together. (Thought up in concert with Don'tArgueWithMissHepworth.)
Chapter 12: February, 1886
The love spell is based on a number of theories. The Law of Intensification is used to intensify Tallis' feelings of friendship toward Pompey, increasing it from the perceived platonic to romantic. The Law of Entanglement makes similar objects act as if in formation, when in fact they're separate; Pompey is trying to use it to make himself the object of Tallis' affection, creating a connection between them. Finally, the Law of Relevance is used to restrict the effects of the spell (particularly the part based on Intensification) to Tallis' feelings of fondness for Pompey, stopping the spell from suddenly blowing all of Tallis' emotions out of proportion. (Many thanks to Don'tArgue for pretty much thinking all that up. She's a god damn genius, she is.)
