About this journal:

This was originally intended purely for my attempts at NaNoWriMo, as the title says. It's since become my fic journal for Death Note.

Most of the fics here are unfinished, and therefore friends-locked. Several have extremely messy notes above them of what I've come up with for a plot; in other words, badly-grammatised spoilers abound there.

My stories tend to be dubcon/noncon, and several have less-than-eighteen-year-olds having sex (I don't always keep exact ages in mind when I'm writing, and I tend to think sixteen or over is acceptable). I have gone through and added warnings for the stuff I recognised as needing them, but be cautious. If something pings you, say so and I'll add to the warnings for that story.

I tend to add odd paragraphs to whichever story I'm in the mood to work on at the moment, meaning that there aren't any signs when I update a story (unless it's grown larger than the maximum post limit, in which case I'll make a second post).

In other words, if you want to read my unfinished stories, ask to be friended - just please be aware that this journal reflects my writing style by being chaotic and disorganised. I will unlock stories if/when I finish them, so you don't need me to friend you to read the finished stuff. (What there is of it.)

I'm taking being friended as a sign to friend back, BTW; if you don't want that, just let me know.
EDIT: COMMENT HERE IF YOU WANT TO BE ADDED AS A FRIEND. LJ has stopped informing me if people friend me. I still get told about comments. Don't bother friending, just ask and I'll friend you. People (all eight? of you) I am so, so sorry I didn't notice this earlier.


...And I'll start making a note here if I think I've added/changed enough of a story to be worth mentioning.

14/10/12 - Added some more here. f-locked
10/11/12 - New WIP (which I'm not posting on the kinkmeme until I finish it) here. f-locked
05/04/13 - Added to Fragments, which now a) needs middle scenes filled in, and b) is x-rated. f-locked
19/05/13 - Added more to Fragments. Still f-locked
02/05/14 - Oh, yeah, I'm doing a DVD commentary on Sex Note. I just started part three. All parts are available on this day. Also all f-locked
19/09/14 - Added more to Role Reversal. Still a WIP, but now large enough that the next update will need a new entry.
10/01/16 - Last year's Halloween project was doing porn snippets based on a bunch of dark prompts. I have just now gotten around to putting them on this day - those posted on my AO3 account (which I just now realised I haven't linked to from here before now... oops) are public, works-in-progress are friendslocked, unstarted prompts are private-locked. I'm not restricting myself to one story per prompt, so currently public entries may end up friendslocked in the future. Common themes will be dub- or non-con and brainwashing.
Also posting here the two sequels to Journey to Hades, back-dated to just after it.

Lawlight Week! Magic AU

Light isn't drawn to the shop, with its jumbled inventory and dusty shelves. But Sayu is, and Light is responsible, and he finds himself looking over the shelves with boredom while she giggles and exclaims over tarnished silver and ugly costume jewellary.

He doesn't believe the pendent is the real thing. Of course he doesn't - it's as ridiculous as the urban legends about people finding lost works of art in jumble sales. It's only a copy.

But it's a very good copy.

The shopkeeper treats it like any other sale, without so much as a suspicious glance. Sayu buys dried flowers, meant to bring true dreams. Light buys the pendent, and sticks it in his pocket. He'll show it to his friends, later. Maybe give it to his latest girlfriend, if whoever she is is interested in these things.

He forgets it until he's undressing that night, and then he takes it out and looks at it.

The Lover's Locket. Placed beneath your pillow while closed, it will bring dreams of your destined beloved. Worn around your neck while closed, it will allow you to command them, so long as it is not opened. If it is...

He's never sure, afterwards, why he slid it beneath his pillow. Perhaps he just wanted an excuse to dream, for once. To pretend there might be more to his life than charms to protect from thieves and murderers, and cantrips to catch them.

His dreams that night are filled with glimpses of dark eyes in darker hollows, black hair over white skin, a wiry body beneath loose clothes -

The dreams themselves don't worry him. He's more disturbed the next day to find how clearly he remembers them.

He has no idea that a continent away, the world's foremost lawmage is panicked over foreign magics that have slipped through holes in the weave of his protections to steal sight of him.

Weeks later, the two will bump into each other in the streets of Light's city. Light, recognising his dreamed lover-to-be, will act on impulse as sure as long-built plan. "Ah! -Wait, I have something for you."

The lawmage will pause, wondering if this is a trap or if the beautiful stranger has merely mistaken him for someone else. Light will bring out the pendent, that he has kept with him since his first and only night of dreaming, and slip it over the lawmage's head. "For you.


Light will barely be aware of his creeping terror as the pendent smothers his will beneath its power. If the pendent allows you to command your destined beloved, then surely it would be better to put it around their neck and learn if you are theirs before making any plans for a relationship.

The lawmage will hide the pendent under his shirt and bring Light to his mentor, expecting to learn that this is some failed attempt at enslaving him, something easily repaired.

The pendent - Lover's Locket, a masterwork long lost, long hoped destroyed - will prove to be no mere forgery but the real thing, attuned to the Fates of hearts, able to define the tangled threads of emotion and unnaturally strengthen them so that a lover's mind becomes trapped and bound to their lover's will.

It will be more than a year before the lawmage will take the Locket from his neck, fearful and untrusting, but unable to silence the question in his mind of why this stranger would give himself over so utterly when he must have had some suspicion of the manner of person he was binding himself to.

Light will shudder, pride torn, faith bruised, and give him a simple ultimatum. "If you wish to keep me, allow me to wear the pendent." A cold smile. "Only for so long as you have, of course."

It will have more meaning than any wedding vow could when the lawmage will hand him the pendent silently, watching without protest as he puts it around his neck, making no effort at resistance of the power of the Locket as his own mind is chained and bound.

Light will still hold him for as long as he was held, of course. But after, the two of them will open the Locket.

And release all hold its power has on them.

(no subject)

I've been reading the entries in deathtocapslock, which is a group for picking apart the Harry Potter series and the logic fails and writing flaws thereof. I just reached the chapter of Prisoner of Azkeban where Lupin has the students face off against a boggart, and looking back, I really wonder what Lupin would have done if any of his students had feared, say, their mother shrieking at them for letting someone come to their bed at night and do that stuff to them...

But that also started me thinking about boggarts in general, which led to this ficlet:

A white wolf, a pink heart, and the text: Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia - A Multi-Fandom Mini-Fest, February Thirteenth through Fifteenth

I have a Death Note AU for this - I'm sure everyone's shocked - and it'll be up on AO3 on 12/02/16. I posted an earlier draft here, future-dated, and then found that my antivirus won't let me at the "manage scheduled posts" page so I couldn't edit, which means that 13-through-15 Feb are going to have me messing around with posts as soon as I can (not necessarily the same thing as as soon as they appear).
