I do not write or read slash, incest, lemons, or any other explicit material. I believe this disrespects C. S. Lewis' work and his original intention for his books and characters. I write from a Christian worldview, which varies from being blatantly obvious to somewhat subtle based on the scene.
Jesus' girl 4ever made fantastic trailers for the entries in my main story arc Awakened, Shadowed, Revealed, Concealed, Rekindled, Refracted, Reflected, Veiled, Unveiled, and Eclipsed (links are now next to each main entry in the list below).
MissMelanieWilkes has made a marvelous banner for my stories Awakened - http:// i.imgur. com/I7weflT. jpg and Shadowed - http:// i.imgur. com/5ZSSZM4. jpg and Veiled - (version 1) http:// i.imgur. com/Jco4m3l. jpg (version 2) http:// i.imgur. com/ibxkVLr. jpg

Won Second Place for the Inkling (Best Author) Award in the Narnia Still Lives 2013 Fanfic Awards
As I have joined the ranks of authors who write stories out of order, here is a list of the chronological order for the stories in my A Light in the Darkness universe, which shall be updated as I write more stories. (Bold indicates the main story arc). Recommended Reading Order: I suggest reading at least the first two entries, if not all three, of my main story arc before reading Shields. The one-shots can be read by themselves but are best in chronological order and could possibly contain spoilers for Revealed, although I have tried to keep them as spoiler free as possible. Exception: Please read the first three entries of my main story arc (Awakened, Shadowed, Revealed) and Shields before reading the oneshots running from You Are My Heart to The Sealing of Otmin as these oneshots build off of or reference a plot point revealed and explained in those earlier stories. This will eliminate a lot of confusion and will also prevent some major spoilers.
General Disclaimer: Any language appearing in my stories, other than English, has been written using a translator program. I apologize in advance for any errors that may stand out.

A Light in the Darkness: Currently Untitled
The Rules of Writing for LadyAlambiel (According to Lady Firewing)
Rule 1. If they are a character not crucial to the current plot, can be replaced, not a major character PERIOD, or related to Katerina, by blood, in SOME WAY, they will most likely be killed in a battle against ogres, maniacs, assassins, or sorcerers. (Lady A: Well, someone has to die...)
Rule 2. Cannon characters with little original background will be written with more depth and given a real history, personality, etc. They will then be threatened to be killed off. (Lady A: Lol!)
Rule 3. Romance of the main characters will take an antagonizingly slow time, so as to maximize the frustration at their stubbornness and denial. As soon as you give up hope, they will get together. (Lady A: Or, will they...)
Rule 4. If a main character is lethally injured, they have about a 50-50 chance of making it out alive. EXCEPTION: If they are married, have kids, and are deemed to be loved enough by readers, they will most DEFINITELY be killed off. (Lady A: Sometimes the nice characters just have to die...)
Rule 5. This will at least stay semi-cannon and so the Pevensies are the only ones guaranteed to live. (Lady A: Or, are they...)
Rule 6. Anything suggested may be taken by the author and manipulated by the plot bunnies. (Lady A: Lol!)
Rule 7. No Mary Sues will be tolerated. EVER. PERIOD. EXCLAMATION POINT. (Lady A: Now this one is completely, utterly, and irrevocably true!)
Rule 8: Murphy's Law loves the characters. NO EXCEPTIONS. (Lady A: Yes, yes he does...lol)
Rule 9: There must be angst and snark in every story, unless otherwise requested by a reader. (Lady A: So, if you are tired of angst, ask me nicely and I'll write something else...)
Rule 10: Sanity is relative. (Lady A: Lol! It is, especially for my OC.)
Rule 11: Predictability is a suggestion that will be turned on its head. (Lady A: Lol! There are no guarantees for what will happen next in my stories...as I have proven...)
