Summary: Vetinari and Margolotta's first meeting is educational for them both.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

A Room Vith A View )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Note: The Patrician's Papers falls after Night Watch in the book timeline and technically follows Defender of the Crown in my fanfiction timeline, but properly it is a sequel to A Room Vith A View. As a note, despite the opening prologue, Vetinari is not dead, nor does he die, anywhere in this fanfiction. The Editor's commentaries upon his death are solely for the sake of continuity.

Defender of the Crown )
sam_storyteller: (Discworld: Watch)
Note: This comes after Night Watch in the book chronology and The Policeman's Ball in my fanfiction timeline. I should note that boots with teeth, which I thought was a terrifically original idea when I first came up with it, appears in the TP book "The Last Hero". So much for ever having an original thought in my life. If it's not the ancient Greeks, it's bloody Terry Pratchett.
Summary: Everyone dreams.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

The Mare )
sam_storyteller: (Discworld: Watch)
Note: This falls after Night Watch in the books and Either Way in my fanfictional timeline.

Summary: Ankh Morpork has burned many times before.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

Either Way )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Note: This fanfic falls after Night Watch in the books and Owed in my fanfiction timeline. The first time I read Night Watch, I was intrigued by the quote which eventually inspired this fanfic; the first time it was suggested to me in a review, I laughed and shrugged it off, but the seed was planted.
Summary: Vimes isn't really sure why he's suddenly so desirable.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

The Great Morporkian Pastime )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Note: The dates of the last few in the Vimes line are taken from my personal annotations on the Discworld Timeline, which can be found in unaltered form at the L-Space Web. It assumes that Vimes is barely over forty when first we meet him in Guards! Guards! This occurs after -- and before -- The Night Watch, and falls after The New Verse in my personal fanfiction timeline.
Summary: Sam Vimes knows his own bloodline.
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

Bloodline )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Notes: To keep rhythm, "Eorle" is pronounced "Earl". Ahaha, Mr. Pratchett, that's a good one...
Summary: There's a song about the nobility of Ankh-Morpork. When you make it into that song, you know you've really made it.
Warnings: None.

The New Verse )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Note: This was the first Discworld fanfic I ever wrote. It is dear to my heart, as the tale of one being's determination to make the world a better place...or at least, a place with more spiky bits to threaten the bad guys with. It falls after "Curtains" in my fanfiction timeline and between Feet Of Clay and The Fifth Elephant in the books.
Summary: Detritus has invented a new and intriguing way of totally destroying his enemies.
Warnings: None.

Now available at AO3!

The Piecemaker )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Note: This story comes just after the Proposal stories in my fanfiction and just before Feet of Clay in the books.

Curtains )

Summary: Vetinari looks after his friend.
Warnings: None.

Glue And Balsa )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Notes: This takes place after my fic "A Room Vith A View" chronologically. I am choosing to believe that a dog cannot be described as "elderly" in Sourcery when, sixteen years later, he is reputed to be...well...sixteen. Unless he's been spending even more time up at the High Energy Magic building than Gaspode. Rum luck.
Summary: Vetinari gets the best birthday present ever.
Warnings: None.

Here are the collected Drabbles from yesterday's meme. :) There's one original fic and one "Ellis" fic, three Potter fics, two Discworld fics, two Lord Peter fics, three Housefics, and three crossovers.

Drabbles! )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
First Posted 5.6.2007

Also available at AO3.

These drabbles are from a meme that was posted originally on February 19th, 2006.

In the meme, I asked people to visit The Invisible Library (link now defunct) and suggest a "nonexistent book" from the records there, which I would then write an excerpt from. They're filed here in an organised fashion and will eventually be available in PDF format.

With some exceptions, these drabbles are sorted by the genre of the book they can be found in -- thus, for example, one Sherlock Holmes drabble is in with the Sandman comics while another is in with the Mystery books. The LJ Username in front of each drabble signifies the person who requested it.

Some drabbles have been tweaked slightly since their original posting. This is Part I, containing Harry Potter, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Mystery, Horror, Literary, and Ellis Graveworthy. Part II contains Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Satire.

Warnings: Some gore in the Horror section.

The Harry Potter Series ) The Discworld Series ) Sandman and Good Omens ) Mystery and Horror Novels ) Literary Novels ) Ellis Graveworthy's Works )

All right, here are the final, finished products from the Charity Flopsyfest I ran on [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge from December 16 - 21, 2006. The short fics are interspersed with "drawbles", brief sketches offered by [livejournal.com profile] waccawheels and [livejournal.com profile] celestialsoda on a limited-request basis. Please don't use the artwork without permission!

These fics range in rating from G to R.

Warnings: Light bondage.

Enjoy! And thank you to everyone who participated and made someone's midwinter a little brighter. :)

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
-- Samuel Butler

What is written without effort is generally read without pleasure.
-- Samuel Johnson

Same story, different versions, and all are true.
-- POTC: Dead Man's Chest

I am a humble artist
moulding my earthly clod,
adding my labour to nature's,
simply assisting God.
-- Piet Hein

Every archaeologist knows in his heart why he digs. He digs, in pity and humility, that the dead may live again, that what is past may not be forever lost, that something may be salvaged from the wrack of the ages.
-- From "The Testimony of the Spade"

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
-- Francis Bacon

It is better, of course, to know useless things than to know nothing.
-- Seneca epistles 88 45

When asked how she acquired her knowledge of science, Octavia Butler replied, "I read."

Imagination is more important than information.
-- Albert Einstein
