War Stories – 31

I have paid to publish this, with a very dreary two hours on Khan Academy’s art history department and a more thorough explanation of the Ghent and Merode Altarpieces than I ever wished to hear. On the other hand… have some more story! … Continue reading

War Stories – 17

Brief Real Life update: I got Chrome!  After months of ‘your browser is not supported’, I finally have my WordPress reader back!  (I have to reeducate the spell-checker.)  Also, I am now employed, so War Stories might end up slamming the … Continue reading

Windows of the Soul – 2

… here we go again.  I would like you all to know that this was an unnecessarily difficult story to write, because I constrained myself to write it without the use of a particular word.  No prizes for guessing what … Continue reading

Windows of the Soul – 1

200th post on Against the Shadows!  Thanks to everybody who’s stuck around – we’ve come a long way together: I couldn’t have done it without you. Okay, this one owes its roots to Erin’s Just In Case.  Which I went hunting for, … Continue reading

Special Features: Idyll

A Blue House sketch.  By way of explanation.   I was working in the outer office, which I still call that even though it’s properly the house library, trying to straighten out some difficulties that had arisen with the script for Wings, ready … Continue reading

Sentinel Idyll: Temple

I have reasons for what I’m doing, and I’m happy to discuss them with you in the comments log if you like. Reseda Che is gay, just putting that out there right now. I did not see this coming; sometimes … Continue reading

Let Me Teach You How To Dance

Today it’s a different piece of music, and we’re experimenting again.  Please read the introduction carefully. The real-Galaxy version of the story.  Thanks to Erin for suggesting it during a tennis match we had some years ago.  This is an early-days-era piece. Nasriel … Continue reading

Laugh

With thanks to Sophie Santack for the excellent advice.  Because of something someone said, and because of what I wish someone had said to me in response. Short story, heavy dialogue, no apologies. It was just one of the many things … Continue reading

ArtDump

So I’m back, and I’ve got a hua of a lot of plot bunnies to get through – one of them’s demanding two versions, you’ll see that soon – but in the meantime, I’ve been experimenting with a dollmaker and … Continue reading

Sentinel Idyll: Priory

I thought that On Loan had settled the question of Sentinels once and for all – but apparently not.  So here we all are again! Due to an accident with the timeline (a pot-plant fell on it, obscuring some vital dates) this … Continue reading

These Things Take Time

This story serves a few purposes: it proves to a friend that I am capable of writing Padmé into a story, it avenges much of my frustration with the love of the other Satine’s life, and it answers a rather difficult ethical question … Continue reading

Normal

A homeschooler’s response to being suddenly thrust into the midst of a bunch of ‘normal’ people her own age.  Let’s just say I wander around all day in a fog of total social bemusement. My figure for the total number of Padawans in the Order is based on a (canonical) … Continue reading

My Child

Edit: April 21 This post, and its immediate sequel, Restored to the Light, have been removed to coruscantbookshelf’s page at Fanfiction.net, owing to controversy over their content, and the fact that this blog has a maximum rating of T.

The Tap

I love the stories you can find in population statistics.  I read the census figures for fun.  This was just a natural result.  A Padawan’s-eye view of the numbers of the war.  Apologies to Obi-Wan – I didn’t want to do it, darling, but … Continue reading

The Namesake

Know how it is when you’ve got a story, and just need to find out how to get it on the page? This is one of those. We’re back in the usual Galaxy, by the way. In the end I had … Continue reading

Betrachtungen Hinsichtlich die Steujankrise

An experiment in a new narrative technique. You may want to read this twice to work it out. A clue: Every time you hit ***, there’s a new narrator. The first three are Nasriel, Erirea, and Ben. After that you’re … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 25

This is the end… hold your breath and count to ten… What’s that? No, it really is! And so it was that Obi-Wan and Surimaresh were admitted to Chancellor Palpatine’s office barely ten minutes after requesting an interview. It was … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 24

Written mostly in a field in Norfolk in company of six small children playing soccer, and a horse, and a rather splendid game of Mafia. I retired crushed from the game because I was (again) designated the detective and was (as … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 23

I think we’re nearly there… probable thanks to John Grisham today, at least for the inspiration and possibly even for an early version of a setting. “Well.” Surimaresh appeared around the corner. “That’s that, then. She’s gone, no more worries for … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 22

It’s… been a while, I’m afraid. Life got busy. But I never actually forgot about this story, it’s been at the top of my drafts list for months. Today: A charm, a clue, and a complete surprise for Obi-Wan. When … Continue reading

On Loan

The story you are about to read is the result of a comment Erin made in passing, a Scarlet Pimpernel story, and a night of insomnia induced by gorgeous wonderful French coffee. I don’t think it is quite what Erin was … Continue reading

Special Features: “Occasion”

There wasn’t room for these scenes in For The Occasion, but they seemed too much fun to pass up altogether. Also, a window into my mind palace (incidentally this palace is called the Blue House; I don’t know why) the night before we began work on … Continue reading

For The Occasion

This story contains one line borrowed from one of Erin’s (as yet) unpublished stories – so thanks a million, Erin – but uses it in a rather different context. Also several lines lifted from a song currently popular. Question is: which … Continue reading

Gradesaver

I occasionally plan stories and set a goal I have to accomplish before I let myself write them. Gradesaver is my reward for having completed five math lessons in the space of a week – with no mistakes at all. Now, … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 21

On we go. Something sweet and easy to swallow today, I think, because some of us are following Growing Pains and… well, we could use the spoonful of sugar after Chapter 54 of that. It took three days for Bant … Continue reading
