Engarian has posted an Eternal Dungeon / Lord of the Rings crossover story

Engarian's blurb: After the defeat of Sauron, Aragorn turns to the job of ruling and rebuilding. He is visited by his Steward escorting two men who are worried about the future of their jobs - torturers in the dungeon.

Aragorn cast a sharp look at his Steward, then focused on the two men standing respectfully, in partially hidden in shadow. He beckoned, waving them forward. "Come closer. You look somewhat familiar. . . . Smith, isn't it?"

(Ohmygosh, my characters have met Strider. I'm not sure I can contain my palpitations.)

A challenge for any vidders here

I must confess that, whenever I've thought of music in connection with any of my stories, it's always been classical music (which is why the booktrailers for my stories have nearly always featured classical music).

But when I chanced upon this song, I dearly wished I could have turned it into a vid for my fic.

So here's a challenge to any fanvidders here: If you appreciate the appropriateness of the song as much as I do, and you'd like to give me and my readers a gift, please turn this song into a fanvid. I think the song would be spot on for the main pairing of Waterman, but if you ship differently, it would also work for the main pairing of The Eternal Dungeon or even Life Prison.

Celebrate the tenth anniversary of "The Eternal Dungeon"

Cover for 'As a Seeker'

The Eternal Dungeon, a historical fantasy series on friendship and romance in a Victorian prison, has proved to be the most popular series I've written. Its omnibus e-book received three honors in the Rainbow Awards 2011, including winning the Best Gay Fantasy category.

The Eternal Dungeon is ten years old this year. Although I conceived the storyline some time in the 1990s, I began to write down the series on March 14, 2002. By the end of that month, I'd written 59,000 words about the Eternal Dungeon. (I spent the first half of the month finishing The True Master and writing all of the Life Prison novella. It was a busy month.) The first volume of the Eternal Dungeon series was serialized on slash fiction lists between September 2012 and January 2013.

If you've enjoyed reading the series, join the festivities. Chat with other readers of the series as I publish more Eternal Dungeon stories during the next few weeks. Post about some aspect of the series that intrigues you. Draw a picture of your favorite character. Post a vid about the series. Write a fanfic.  Let me and your fellow fans know how you're celebrating: post a comment to this entry (you can post announcements, discussions, and creations here) or drop me an e-mail. If you'd like, I can link to your creation at Shared Universes, which collects links to fanworks inspired by my stories.

In the meantime, I would like to offer my profound thanks to the many slash fiction writers (especially these writers) whose stories spurred me into a frenzy of writing activity in 2002. Without the inspiration of those folks, most of the stories I've written in the ten years since then would not exist.

Daily life: I've been gifted with Eternal Dungeon fanfic! And Three Lands fan art!

"Because you were talking about being new and everything, I am sort of trying to nurture your posting process and draw you out the way people were nice enough to do to me when I was new and terrifed, so you keep posting forever and ever and ever . . .

"(only unfortunately my version of subtle nurturing and tactful drawing-out is 'OMFG C'MERE EVERYBODY COME LOOK AT THIS OMG SQUEE!!')"

--Maculategiraffe to fellow writer Mydonald.

How I reply to comments at this blog (usually).

First the dull stuff:

What I did for my Muse recently )
My New Year's resolutions )

And now the really good stuff:

Links related to my writings: fanfic, fan art, reviews, and a new essay by me )

Sorry, guys, I'm still catching up on replying to your comments. I decided to post this now, rather than make you wait forever.

вадцать тысяч золотых звезд (Russian translation of "Twenty Thousand Gold Stars")

Основное правило его жизни – не раскрывать ничего о себе.

English-language blurb for the novel:

White Rose has lived a double life for too long. For too many years, he has struggled alone to determine how he should handle an ethical dilemma he never wanted to face. Now, finally, he has found help online. But is it the right help?

Twenty Thousand Gold Stars describes an online world where anonymity is all-important, and where a knock on the door can spell disaster. Yet behind the masks that are unwillingly donned, men and women seek answers to imperative questions that will determine, not only their own futures, but the futures of those they meet in real life.

* * *

I'll link to this eventually from my website, but I wanted everyone to have a chance to see the fruition of months and months of work by Rose Red and her beta reader. Unfortunately, I can't read Russian, but I can testify to the dedication of this team, from the number of inquiries about words that were sent to me during the translation process. (English-language readers can have fun by going to the ends of the posted chapters and seeing which English words had to be explained to Russian readers in footnotes. Impressively lengthy footnotes.)

Eternal Dungeon fan fiction: Telepwen's "Fall Together."

You guys are the best. I'm loving your discussion of the last installment; I'm learning so much from it about my own characters.

Best of all is Telepwen, who has posted a delightful little piece of Eternal Dungeon fan fiction, Fall Together. It has major spoilers for Rebirth 5: As a Seeker.

I've also added a link to this story on my page devoted to fan works set in my worlds.
