I just wanted to write a bit about heraldry in Greatheart, because I realized it's rather important to Eastland, culturally speaking! Though it is based on the heraldry of the Middle Ages in Europe, there are differences.

As usual, details subject to change if I think of better ideas to replace them with.

Show your colors! )

Written for [ profile] redvelvetaddict, who wanted a story about Roland and Selwyn. If anyone has any requests for stories about a particular character, or two (or more) particular characters interacting, please let me know, because it's fun to get requests.

Though I think I'll get back to working on a new chapter next!

Title: Nightmare Wings
Universe: Greatheart
Word count: 3100
Prompt: "a pleasant air, but a barren soil"
Character(s): Selwyn Benison, Roland Morningstar, Fiorel Winsome, Lawrence Timely, Acacia Moral
Pairing(s): None
Warning(s): None
Info: Selwyn is fascinated by Roland's wings. Also, this story is set at a projected time when all the characters listed above are traveling together; this arrangement might not actually come about, although it is most likely true that Matthew and Chester will be separated from the others.

Another prompt story! Oh, and these Greatheart stories can be read in any order, in case anyone is curious.

Change alert! Lysander used to be male, but now is one of the genderless or "nix" Aetherians. I figured that since I had such a sex in the story, I should make a relatively important character belonging to it. Of course, most non-Aetherians don't know about nixes, and Aetherians tend to be androgynous in general, it is possible that one of the other Aetherian characters (like Good or Carillon) is nix as well.

Uh, so basically I wanted to give myself pronoun nightmares. Since nixes are of NO sex and have no sexual characteristics, I use "it", but that's not because I think people of alternate sex and/or gender are not people or something, I just think it fits in this imaginary instance. Nixes are considered equal to males and females among the Aetherians. The Aetherians live such a long time and have such low birth rates, they decided that not everyone needed their own sexual characteristics. (They can do things like that.)

You can read more about Lysander here and here. Only Lysander's sex has changed, really.

I hope there aren't any typos. Damn you, pronouns!

Title: The Shape of Sorrow
Universe: Greatheart
Word count: 1400
Prompt: "founded neither on reason nor divine revelation"
Character(s): Lysander Sorrow
Pairing(s): None
Warning(s): None
Info: Lysander was born to fulfill a very important role in the High King's court.

Another Greatheart prompt short story! These are rather enjoyable to write. I love working with prompts. Anything in these short stories might later be contradicted as I could change my mind about things. However, they're mostly accurate as far as my concept of the story stands now, unless I state otherwise.

Hmm, but I guess they're a bit apocryphal, which is always fun!

Oh yes, and this is Helen's first written appearance, but you don't learn much about her here. Probably because I'm still figuring some things out about her character. I'll have to write another story which develops her and her friendship with Margot more.

Title: The Queen's Birthday
Universe: Greatheart
Word count: 2500
Prompt: "a noise in the schools"
Character(s): Margot Amaranth (Margot POV), Lawrence Timely, Helen Wild, Louis Amaranth
Pairing(s): None
Warning(s): Self-injury
Info: They used to celebrate the Queen's birthday, but no longer.

The Queen's Birthday. )
