Before I forget

I'll be going to the Louvre to see the Darth Vader/Hercules exhibit* at some point this week-end. Does anyone want me to look at anything for them?

With the caveat that they evacuated some of the collections due to the flood in early June and some are still closed.

* Mythes fondateurs. D’Hercule à Dark Vador ("Founding myths. From Hercules to Darth Vader") but like I was going to pass up calling it "the Darth Vader/Hercules exhibit", because how often do you get to say "Darth Vader/Hercules" and have it be even vaguely relevant? Not enough.

The fic I wrote for [community profile] jukebox_fest is:

A penny for the ferryman (1409 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Planet Hell - Nightwish (Song), Etruscan Mythology
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Original Female Character/Original Female Character
Characters: Original Female Character(s), Vanth (Etruscan Mythology)
Summary: There's hope beyond the horizon and the gates of the Underworld.
I like Etruscan myth and the Etruscans, but wow, is information sparse on the ground. I did my best. (I love Vanth, she is such a fascinating figure in the murals.)

The fic I wrote for [community profile] nightonficmountain is:
Three's a crowd (1115 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: xxxHoLic
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Doumeki Shizuka/Kunogi Himawari/Watanuki Kimihiro
Characters: Watanuki Kimihiro, Kunogi Himawari, Doumeki Shizuka
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence
Summary: The shop keeps going, and so do they.
It was one of the late pinch-hits. I think I did okay, given the givens.

(There was a mix-up with the sign-ups and I gave my assignment to one of the unfairly-recipless participants, which is why I only wrote one fic. Lesson learned: putting in place two major changes (medium types + relationships/characters) at once is a bad idea.)

My [community profile] fandomgiftbox is here. It's pretty short, because I signed up almost last minute, but if you know of anything I'd like and didn't mention, feel free to toss it in there.

I've been using Cléopâtre's Tu n'es pas en pays conquis ici! ('You have not conquered this land!') to keep anxiety at bay these past couple days. It's super effective!

(Plus it casts my anxiety as Caesar and y'all know how much I hate Caesar.)

Supposing King Arthur of the British comes back, does he over-rule Elizabeth II or does she over-rule him or is it the set-up of a comedy of manners where they attempt to co-rule the UK?

My god, that Daily Mash story identifies exactly the problem that I've been struggling with for the last 43,000 words. IE, what use, exactly IS a dark age monarch in a modern parliamentary democracy?

(I opted to have Jormundgandr eat the queen and her entire immediate family, to create a vacancy. He's eaten a lot of London so far, so it's not like she was singled out.)

How did you solve it? Are you writing Arthur vs Parliament?

(At least she wasn't singled out?)

I haven't solved it yet! I'm hoping that eventually with enough words, it will come together...? Jormundgandr ate Parliament as well. And all the Ministries, including Defense.

As a moderate monarchist I'd feel vaguely bad about killing off the Queen in order to replace her in fiction, but I feel that doing so in a sufficiently large disaster somehow is better :-D

Let me know what you come up with!

Jormundgandr ate Parliament as well
I love fandom.

I feel that doing so in a sufficiently large disaster somehow is better :-D
Me too, oddly enough.

des mangas japonais

Ils sont mignons. C'est vrai qu'on inclut parfois les manhwa et les manhua sous le terme manga, mais bon...

N'est-ce pas? Ça donne envie de leur pincer les joues.
