This account acts as the repository for the Lamentable One's poor quality efforts at fiction.

Update - 03-05-2012

In a break from tradition, a non-fantasy story (the very fact of that inspiring the name). And I remain not dead, but with the writing speed of someone who is.

About me / the stories here.

From time to time, when the mood takes me, I like to work on various works of fiction, despite my lack of talent as a writer. These stories by and large are for my own amusement, and have little forward planning other than a basic premise that pops into my mind. As such, I make them up as I go along, and they usually trail off into nothing. As a warning, if you want a cohesive plot that goes somewhere, or even some form of resolution, the stories here are really, really not for you.

Currently, I have about twenty of these fics in 'development' (where development means they have at least a start, and occasionally I add a bit) and I be upload a few of them here. Updates are random, mostly to stories not posted here for various reasons, and glacially slow.

The stories themselves are all* set in fantasy environments of my own invention, and they generally contain lesbian themes. Or at least they would, were I ever to get that far. My personal preference for these sort of stories, and so the type I (attempt) to write involve the slow development of relationships over time, which generally requires some length. A length I've consistently failed to reach in the years this profile has been active. Go me.

Story Notes (Preliminary titles).

A Matter of Gold.
A party of adventurers go on a generic fantasy quest. In this case, it is taking a princess from a besieged city to safety with allies a long way away. Nothing much else to say on it.

Strangers Together.
An arranged marriage, with a twist. Oh ho ho, I'm about as subtle as a freight train. As a note, the Ne'Laraan can basically be pictured as Night Elf like in appearance (a stroke of inventive genius, I know).

Spellseer.
Young woman enters into a relgious order as a way to escape poverty rather than any particular devotion. Found to be elligible for the Spellseers (magicians).

A Chant For Those Gone.
Revel in the terrible battle descriptions and details of military life written by someone who has absolutely no knowledge on the subject. The basic setting for this story was inspired by Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series, which any reader of epic fantasy should have in their collection. If you don't, go get it now. Go on, go.

A Merchant's Whim.
An actual completed fic. Well, until such a time as I decide I want to continue it that is.

Second Chances.
Background story for Chant. Also breaks a bit of the Chant continuity - see if you can spot it! (Before I bother to fix it...)

The Shadow Beneath.
First new thing in a while. A noblewoman unwittingly stumbles into a violent world hidden behind the strained facade of her home city.

Not Her Fantasy.
And not a fantasy, which is a first. Young woman meets stripper, and I write about an actual lesbian. Egads.
