Story: Ursulan
Colors: Sulphur 1, snake
Supplies and Materials: [community profile] stayintheroom, "Your ends don't even justify your ends."; tapestry (Sulphur & stayintheroom); oils, things that are painful to remember
Word Count: 813
Rating: PG-13-ish
Warnings:(skip) attempted forced abortion
Notes: It seems that I have not yet posted a story in this world! The Ursulan Cycle is an open story universe, conceived of by [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith, in which most of the characters from Arthurian legend are genderbent.

This story follows one I have written but not posted, in which Morwenna (Mordred) has taken over Camelot while Ursula (Arthur) is away fighting the saxons and seduced Gwynn (Guinevere). At the end of that story, Ursula and the knights return; Ursula and Morwenna are both pregnant. This begins a few months later.


Don't do this, Morwenna. )

Supplies and Materials: canvas
Word Count: 795
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Awful, dystopian government; characters drugged against their will
Notes: A little background on why these people ended up imprisoned on this planet. (I don't seem to have a tag for prison planet! It is the same universe as robot rights; should I just use the same tag for both? They don't share any of the same characters.)

People had already been imprisoned for saying things like this. )

Rating: PG

Notes: I'm trying to flesh out a few of the worlds that I haven't written so much in, so here's a prison planet story! This is actually the same universe as robot rights, though it's hundreds of years in the future and thousands of lightyears away.

Notes: Backstory to a novel/duology I'm in the planning stages for. This story is probably really confusing because I tried to avoid spoilers--the stuff the mom is worrying about is a major part of the plot.

Mods, a tag for Falling Into Light, if you please?

Notes: When I saw the [community profile] stayintheroom prompt, I honestly thought this story was going to be about Ivy--and it is, but it's more about Charlotte. Also, I don't play video games and it occurred to me after I wrote it that Grand Theft Auto is probably not multiplayer. But it delights me to think of Angel and Laura playing a violent video game together.

Name: Clare
Story: Moonsisters
Colors: Caput Mortuum 4, Livor mortis; Moonlight 19, Sidereal; Antique Brass 17, There is no reality in which I would live in South Dakota.
Supplies and Materials: Fingerpainting (one scene in this actually made me sick to write), canvas, oils, charcoal, pastels ([community profile] darkfantasybingo: sacrifice), novelty beads ("We deserve beauty, love, respect, admiration, kindness and compassion. If we don't get it, there will be hell to pay." -- Margaret Cho)
Word Count: 2,968
Rating: hard R
Warnings: (skip) Multiple murders, sociopathic POV character, attempted rape, animal abuse.
Notes: Funny story about this character. I distinctly recall naming her after someone my friends and I hated when I was writing at least one version of the Moonsisters. However, I can't recall a single thing about this person we hated other than that her name was Maureen. I asked my best friend about it a few days ago, and she didn't remember anything, either. So I guess she didn't make that much of an impression! Hopefully this incarnation of Maureen is a more interesting villain than just someone to name after someone I hate; she's certainly more three-dimensional and way scarier after this story.
