Title: crossroads
'Verse/characters: Wild Roses; James, Jared
Prompt: 086 "Choices"
Word Count: 400
Rating: all ages
Notes: This is not the bit I meant to write to this prompt. I'd meant to write Sascha, in the space between wars. Instead I've got James, just before the midway point of the first war. Piece references Giovanni (called Gio. The second of the Six, and a storm-aligned mage), and Ciarshilen (called Cia, or Shile, depending. The original second of the Six, who died in the war previous to the modern ones. James never met her).
I first met James in other-than-name-alone here, as part of a meme response.



'Did she choose?' he asked, words quiet in the darkness. )
taennyn: (fairytales and will o'the wisps)
Title: shadow
'Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Ruadhan, Sean, Isael
Prompt: 095 "New Year"
Word Count: 435
Rating: all ages
Notes: first war, first or second new year after the war was publically acknowledged to have started. There was actually a moderately lengthy debate as to whether allowing/encouraging the normal celebrations was a good idea, considering the sheer number of assassinations that'd happened already. It was eventually decided that in the absence of a central authority figure to take the flak for banning celebrations, they would be allowed to go forward, with many more people than usual available to respond to emergencies.


Ruadhan caught a glimpse of blond hair across the room )

Title: pennies
'Verse/characters: Wild Roses; the second Ian, Phoebe
Prompt: 085 "She"
Word Count: 272

taennyn: (amber mala)
Title: conclusion not foregone
'Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Sean, (Ian)
Prompt: 046 "Star"
Word Count: 650

taennyn: (prices paid)
Title: curiousity, insatiable
'Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Joshua, Hazel
Prompt: 099 'writer's choice' - Symbols
Word Count: 277
Rating: all ages; warning for baby!Hazel
Notes: Early in the first war; she's less than six.* By all appearances they're somewhere in the outskirts of the Trickwood, or on someone's estate that's secure enough that she can run a bit wild. His other appearance so far was here.
Randomly, this was sparked by contemplating permanent symbols, in the context of this culture, which resulted in the first line of this piece echoing in my head. >.>


Name me this )
taennyn: a girl sitting in front of a field of fallen leaves (Default)

Word Count: 704, at least one more prompt to follow in the arc
Rating: (why am I even bothering with this?) PG

’Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Madeleine Maeve Sabaey
Prompt: 088 "School"
Word Count: 192
Rating: G (unless you have a fantastic textural imagination, in which case PG)
Notes: Well before the wars (including Rosenthal)—she’s less than a hundred in this.
ETA: the school system she's in is not that of the wider culture she is part of as an adult, I should add. >.>


May I present a counterpoint to that last comment? )

Title: slip
’Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Évariste, (the Exile)
Prompt: 071 "Broken"
Word Count: 300
Rating: PG
Notes: long before the wars; the woman mentioned in the past tense was involved in a very early attempted coup (she was mostly involved/responsible for the ending thereof—she killed the person ringleading/responsible for the attempt. Unfortunately this meant the honestly responsible party could not be Asked about who else had been involved, and to what degree.) She ended up being banished from the home territories as a Gesture. The Sabaeys and the home world never heard from her again. Évariste, out on the very far edges of said territories, did.
First edit. Subject to sentence revision.
Also, first bit of writing since November of '06.

Title: longest night
’Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Isael, Conall
Prompt: 092 "Christmas"
Word Count: 608
Rating: G
Notes: First war; the Trickwood, for a given definition of ‘safe’, was a sanctuary for anyone who could persuade Hernén that they weren’t going to deliberately set anything to eat people (or if they were it wasn’t going to be HIS people). I continue to do weird things to the holiday prompts.


It was cold, here )
taennyn: (Fire and Chaos)
Title: willing
’Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Aodh
Prompt: 096 "Ritual"
Word Count: 562
Rating: PG for Roman-based sacrificial practices.
Notes: a folk tale, in a peculiar fashion. Un-tied to the main world. Sparked by the mental lines "One is not to burn down a cultural metropolis through judicious abuse of rituals associated with religious cults. . . Again. >.>"

Title: crazy as your blood
’Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Hernén

’Verse/characters: Wild Roses; Aodh, Yasha (the Kid), Captaen Dutch an Olfridulfr
Prompt: 058 "Dinner"
Word Count: 529
Rating: G-PG
Notes: Dutch belongs (inasmuch as that’s possible with a doorman) to [livejournal.com profile] klgaffney’s headspace. He got drafted some time ago to help teach the Kid how to control the doors he was making (see here for the negotiations, if you’re so inclined). Mostly this seems to consist of bickering, some amount of arghing, and annoying the Kid into experimenting with his power. >.>
Larathia requested Aodh and chocolate. This is what resulted.
