Now that I'm getting into the groove of writing, I'm sure y'all have questions.

Or maybe not, but I'm pretending you do anyway.


Pick an OC of mine, and ask me anything you'd like about their "canon" backstory.

Why specify "canon"? Because I like AUs. A lot. So it's easier to specify.

ETA: Please don't ask me things like "what is their backstory?" or "I'd like to know more about them". Please go with three specific or semi-specific questions. I may open this up to more later.

An OC list behind the cut )

ETA2: If you want to do a non-AtLA OC, go ahead! I'm just not making a list for y'all.

I just finished a very frustrating project last night, and I want to write one of my favorite characters. So. Ten slots.

I shouldn't have to say this, but if you haven't watched AtLA, don't make a request.

Apparently I forgot to repost this. There's one other [livejournal.com profile] atlaland entry I haven't yet reposted, but I'll wait until Sunday for that one.

Title: Fear
Characters: Long Feng, assorted Ba Sing Se folk
Word Count: 600+
Rating: PG
Summary: The red moon inspires terror in men. Only a fool would be unafraid, and Long Feng has never been a fool.
Author's Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] atlaland's Red Moon/Dead Moon challenge.

Fear )
The sun shines. The air is warm, too warm the heavy green robes Long Feng is wearing. But they are his only armor, threadworn silk over fine links of steel chain, and he cannot go gallivanting about without armor.

So says How, anyway, and Long Feng is inclined to let the general have his way. For the moment.

"Look at all the trout!" Xin Wan croons, pointing to the subtle shadows in the deeper water.

Ishi nods, crouching down by the stream with Xin Wan. The mindbender has a length of line and several steel hooks, though he sneered when he collected them. Any boy from his village who needed line to catch a fish, he'd said as they walked, was clearly a fool. However, it had been decades since the last time he'd fished...

Long Feng smiles indulgently. There are reports he could be reading, information he could analyze for How and the Order, even earthbender training with some of the less squeamish soldiers. Yet he is out here with Ishi and Xin Wan. A warm breeze stirs his hair, and the ground under his feet is warm and soft.

This is a good day. He sighs in contentment as Xin Wan yelps at Ishi for jumping in the stream and scaring the fish.

He hopes there will be more good days before the War is over and after it is won.
Daimyo Akio stood at the other end of the courtyard, his Fire Sage at his side. His son stood nearby, a girl just old enough to braid her own hair clutching his belt and staring at her grandfather in awe. The daimyo wore no tunic, merely a pair of thick red arm-bands and a small red vest. His boots stood empty nearby while the daimyo ran through a series of slow katas to stretch his muscles. As the sun rose, faded scars were revealed in the changing light.

At the other end of the courtyard, Long Feng looked annoyed as Joo Dee held a similar pair of arm-bands and vest out to him. In-Su couldn't hear her from here, but she was Joo Dee. It was her job to the know the protocol when no one else did, and the protocol for an Agni Kai obviously called for ritual clothes. As she was no doubt explaining to the minister.

As he watched, Long Feng reached up and undid the clasps of his robe. It fell, and Joo Dee dove to sweep it up before it could hit the ground.

Mazaru wolf-whistled as the robe came off. "Ash and spark, they grow them fine out there in the Earth Kingdom!"

In-Su sighed and swung his elbow as hard as possible into the firebender's ribs. "Pervert."

Long Feng pulled the arm-bands up over his biceps. He flexed, obviously testing if the bands impaired his movement at all. From what In-Su could tell, they did not.

He'd never realized the minister had plague scars. From the looks of Kyung and Myung-Dae, neither had they.

Joo Dee held out the vest, and Long Feng put it on irritably. With a gesture that was pure Thanh, he flipped his braid out from underneath it, then stepped forward to the line marking his edge of the battlefield.

Daimyo Akio stepped up to his line.

"So," In-Su said in a low voice, "how exactly do one of these duels work?"

"They fight until one yields," Mazaru said, eyes flicking towards him. "You worried about your man?"

In-Su shook his head. He wasn't worried about Long Feng at all.

The minister and the daimyo knelt facing away from each other, Long Feng with one hand on the ground. Three breaths, then both stood nearly together. A murmur ran through the Firefolk; In-Su tilted his head slightly. Hands could feel more than feet, he recalled from long-ago anatomy lessons. It seemed to hold true with earthsight as well.

Knowing Long Feng, he would never even allude to his earthbending if someone brought up their near-synchronicity.

Both men shrugged off their vests and took one step forward. They eyed each other across the expanse of the courtyard, then at the signal, both slid into a ready-stance. In-Su blinked; he had never seen such an obvious example of how different firebending and earthbending truly were.

I have a kink. I have a number of kinks, really, but they're not being pandered to in this meme.

AtLA-only. Give me two or more characters, at least two of whom must be from different nations, and a prompt. You don't get to say who is slave to whom.

If you feel like pandering to the writer, I'm really jonesing on the Water Tribe right now.

Two requests to random passerby, three requests to the usual suspects. If you don't think you're one of the usual suspects, then you're probably not. If you're [livejournal.com profile] floranna, you are by dint of being adorable and replying so often. <3

I promise to write at least one of your requests if you provide two. If you only provide one, and it bores me, I'm just going to skip it. This is about me pandering to my kink, after all.

Title: Cultural Protectors
Characters: Aang, Joo Dee, assorted Dai Li OCs, assorted past Avatars

Because these things always have a lower turnout, and I really, really want to write some of my OCs right now.

- Three slots per person, five slots if you're one of my people1
- Prompts must include fandom and what side you want me to write an OC from, assuming sides are relevant to the fandom. (Autobot/Decepticon/neutral, Earth/Water/Fire/Air, Machine/rebel/Exile)
- Prompt me with whatever you feel like prompting. Lyrics, phrases, songs, situations, whatever. If it doesn't work for me, I'll just stick my mp3-player on random and drabble to that.
- I guarantee I will write you at least one piece.
- You can use two slots to request specific OCs of mine if you really, really want to. But I'd appreciate free rein on who to write, because there's a lot of my OCs that have never made it to stories.
- You may have a bonus slot in which to request that I write one of your OCs. However, you must provide me with history/appearance/personality. (OCs I am already familiar with can skip providing that sort of stuff.) ETA: A bonus slot is an extra slot that doesn't count towards your overall slottage.

1. 'My people' are defined as: anyone who has known me since ReBoot or The Matrix fandom, Deadzone players, Pepper, Dageraisy, Rin, Neld, and Spyri

The icon on this entry has almost nothing to do with the story. I just like multi-colored four-horned sheep. A lot.

I'm writing a lot of original or near-original (wild AUs, original fan characters) stories for [livejournal.com profile] story_lottery this time around. This particular set of prompts really encourages it, as the prompts are for places. I'm taking the opportunity to 'practice' writing original settings and characters without worrying too much about getting it 'right'.

That being said, I would really appreciate feedback on certain things. Am I providing enough background information for you to get an understanding of the world? Am I overloading on the background information? Are the characters engaging and interesting? What can you figure out about the characters based on what I've said about them in the story?

Title: The Boy With the Steel Arm
'Verse: Avatar AU: Cyberpunk
Characters: Ichiro, Liu, Alak
Word Count: 1200+
Rating: G
Summary: Ichiro wakes up in an Earthborn medical lab. Very, very not good.
Author's Notes: This is actually Pux's 'verse, but she let me borrow it to play with.

Well, of my recent fandom commissions. I've gotten a few original characters recently, but a) not all of them are finished, and b) I'm not sure how many people care.

I love nagas. I love nagas a lot. (Actually, I like all kinds of human-animal hybrids, as my mermaid, octomaid, selkie, drider, and scorpionman obsessions attest. HOWEVER. Today we are concentratining on nagas.)

This is an Avatar'verse AU where the Firefolk are nagas. For people who need references to what nagas are, I direct you here and here. Yes, the Firefolk are going to be that big 'cause I love massive long snake-coils.

Known Facts of the AU
- Most Firefolk are constrictors. Some are rattlesnakes. The royals are constrictors, though.
- Firefolk are the only nagas in the 'verse, and they don't cross-breed with non-Firefolk. They're just incompatible with humans.
- They still 'bend. They also possess some limited illusion abilities.
- Nagas generally don't have sex. They cuddleslut, but sex pretty much always results in children. So cuddleslutting. A lot. It's also really difficult for them to have sex with humans, but some of them might be willing to try.

So! Ask for as many requests as you want. I only guarantee I'll fill out one, and I guarantee I won't fill out more than that if you don't comment on that initial one. I will not fill out requests for Person Who is Dead During Canon/Person Who is Alive During Canon, unless it's like Gyatso/Bumi or some other pairing that could conceivably have met while alive. (Exception: Sozin/Song. 'Cause.)
