Beta Editor: the lovely [livejournal.com profile] darth_eldritch
Author’s Notes: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite "introduce a villain from another fandom" challenge and I'm finally posting it in my journal. The story mixes J.K. Rowling’s world with elements from the stories of H. P. Lovecraft and R. E. Howard, some of which later found their way into the Marvel universe. The villain I introduce is Father Set, accompanied by his children. Although I make use of Mythos lore in general, I particularly draw on The Nameless City and The Curse of Yig. It is not necessary to have read these stories in order to read this one, however. I was inspired by two drawings of Voldemort in Egypt by the amazing Lightpoint: In Search of Time and Bazaar. I must also recommend The Parselmouth, a fun website which renders words into “Parseltongue”. I had great fun getting the application to translate such phrases as: “Iä! Iä! Fhtagn! Tekeli-li!” into snake language. Creepily, the programme actually translates “Yig” into something frighteningly close to “Set”.

Title: Finishing the Bottle
Disclaimer: Own these characters, I do not. To G. Lucas they belong, yes.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Sexual content and fascism
Word Count: 7,100 approx.
Characters: Palpatine/Anakin
Summary: After being shocked by the feelings they have for one another, two people find each other unexpectedly through their secret lives.
Author's Note: I know I should be writing other things (like Alexis, I know!), but this one just came to me while reading Labyrinth of Evil and re-watching Attack of the Clones (it always amuses me when Anakin starts talking about what a good idea fascism is on his romantic picnic). It's also inspired by some ideas discussed with [livejournal.com profile] veronicaprof. I wanted to write something harking back to my older work with this pairing and just let go and write some erotica. I make no great claim to its artistic merit. This is my attempt at a sequel to the work of the gracious [livejournal.com profile] gizzi1213, who has generously given me permission to try my hand at something in the AU of her tale, The Lovers’ Wine. I hope it comes up to snuff. I usually don’t like to give Palpatine a first name, and when I do it’s my own invented name for him, but the original story was a gift for Wendy, so Palpatine’s private name is Dantius. His family name we never learn. Dedicated to everyone who has been begging me for sex between these two recently. You know who you are. You might also be interested to know the hilarious fact that if you type wine + play + kink into Google, the first thing that comes up are the lyrics to Good King Wenceslas. You might think that. I couldn’t possibly comment.
EDIT: Now with 75% less typos!

Title: The Forest Again
Word Count: 100
Rating: G

It’s a headlong, windborne rush of a journey – thought tumbling over thought with mile after mile – on footless, fleeting shadow. Harried by despair and driven onward by fear, crying out past fast-flying land and sea in a wordless shriek of thwarted fury.

Summer fills the forest, the same as when he’d left it: warm rocks, shallow streams, and a breeze rustling the leafy canopy. After coming so close, the sight dissolves his mind further into insanity. Eleven years. How many more? Will another even come? Is this to be my eternity?

He is not Lord Voldemort.

Voldemort would have won.

Author's Note: I was rereading Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Labyrinth of Evil and the two sort of... collided. In case people haven't realised, this is definitely an AU story. Things unfold slightly differently than in Attack of the Clones. I'm currently working on Alexis and You Know Who, but I desperately need to take myself somewhere else, so here is the next instalment of Star Wars letters.

Author's Note: This was meant to be my "Ten Things Palpatine" for [livejournal.com profile] darth_eldritch, but instead it turned into this and I couldn't add anything else to it. A pleasant diversion while working on much longer stories. Just one of many possible explanations for the mystery that is Palpatine.

Ten Things Lucius Malfoy for [livejournal.com profile] aleysiasnape:

One:

Lucius Malfoy understood from a very young age that he was expected to uphold his family's honour and that this meant concealing his feelings and not crying at his mother's funeral. All his cousins watched with equally dry faces except little Cissy Black, who was bawling her eyes out, her blue eyes shimmering with fat tears, and he saw the despair he felt reflected in her. It seemed terrible that the only person weeping in a sea of stoic faces was his four year-old second cousin who had only met his mother twice. Lucius wasn't permitted to weep himself, standing in his stiff mourning robes under the cold gaze of his father... but he knew as he took the young girl's hand that it just might be all right to comfort someone else.

Disclaimer: As always, everything belongs to Mr. Lucas, and I am making no money.
Rating: R
Word Count: 5, 200
Warnings: Adult concepts and themes, slash, violence, fascism, the Emperor in sexual situations, relationship between a twenty year-old and a septuagenarian.
Summary: Palpatine comes to terms with his relationship with Alexis and Alexis takes a trip to Theed and meets a friend.
Characters: Palpatine and pretty much everyone you’d expect to see at the Imperial Court circa A New Hope, plus some OCs
Genre(s): Romance, tragedy, drama
Pairing(s): Palpatine/male!OC, Moteé/Pestage
Author's Note:  I maintain that the Emperor is allowed to make equine metaphors, as equestrian statues in Theed tell us there were once horses on Naboo. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] zigsternenstaub for giving me a lot of help with this story and lending me Vader expertise. This chapter brings us quite close to the central themes of this tale. I did write out the scene with Vader but decided it distracted too much from the central story line, so Vader is going to get his limelight back on Coruscant. I'm so sorry, [livejournal.com profile] luminations, here's another long story you have to find time to comment on! ;)

Title: Down the Plot Hole
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter. I am merely playing with Rowling's toys.
Warnings: Crude language and classical references.
Rating: PGR
Characters: Harry Potter, Lord Voldemort
Summary: Harry Potter mistakenly decides to go back in time and save the world! Fortunately, Lord Voldemort is there to prevent Harry destroying it in the process. Time-turner meta!fic - strictly canon compliant!
Author's Notes: This just randomly appeared in my head fully-formed, I suspect it's cause was discussing meta fanfiction with [livejournal.com profile] zigsternenstaub. It's about... why characters aren't allowed time-travel plots (except the one) in Harry Potter. Please, forgive me for Voldemort's classical references. Rowling herself quotes Aeschylus at the beginning of Deathly Hallows. I am referencing the great debate in Aristophanes' Frogs, where Aeschylus and Euripides are arguing who is the greater poet. Voldemort is concerned about the way villainous characters end up in Aeschylus' plays, as opposed to those of Euripides. I believe he'd like to see himself as a Medea. Wow, I've spent longer explaining it, than it features in the story! On with the action!
