In an attempt to do something mildly productive that has a finished object that I can point to and say "I accomplished something," I've written two new short fanfics. Given that I'm currently in that sort of mind set to begin with, it seemed like a golden opportunity to complete some of the depressing stories that I normally don't write. Thus:The Trial of Lancelot
and on FF.net
I love Heather Dale
's music, but I pretty cordially dislike Arthurian legend. (First season Merlin
being a rare exception.) Thus, I have decidedly mixed feelings regarding Heather Dale's song, The Trial of Lancelot
. It's on my regular playlist, but it always makes me kind of mad.
Thus, I wrote a short fic on my issues, particularly around the verse:
"The trial's charge was treason,
And betrayal of an oath.
And should his guilt be proven,
Death would fall on traitors both.”Insanity of Survival
and on FF.net
A while back I was rereading a much of Valdemar stories and thought it would be pretty awesome to have Methos interacting with the Companions of Valdemar, seeing as how they all look like white horses, and he's got something of a past with white horses. With a bit of prompting from Pentapus
, I wound up writing two different
stories about post-Death-on-a-white-horse!Methos dealing with Companions. Meanwhile, I thought of, but decided not to write a version that has pre-Death-on-a-white-horse!Methos having been a Herald of Valdemar... and then somehow becoming Death on a Horse. Well, here's that story.
Summary: Being Death was merely a side effect of the white horses, and the white horses were a result of having been ripped apart and left to survive.
