Welcome to the Shrine!
We are your priestesses, NoChristmasJokesPlz (or just NCJP or sometimes Panda) and A Nameless Traveler (or just ANT-chan). We're your resident messengers to the gods of slash - bringing you laughs, tears, and a lot of sexy men - being sexy together. :3 Please read all warnings and make sure all common senses, fangirl squeals, and cameras are secure before entering the shrine.
This is the cooperative account of A Nameless Traveler (hobbyist and writer of the Shadows & Seraphim series) and NoChristmasJokesPlz (artist, writer, and evil genius behind the Crimson Isles universe). What's so special about us? Nothing really. We're slash writers/artists. Which means we enjoy, write, and draw slash. A lot of slash. If you don't know what slash is, you probably shouldn't be here. Sometimes we throw in some femslash or het when the whim strikes, but we just love slash far too much. :3
We post as soon as new chapters become available! Progress updates also go up weekly on our DeviantArt, ANT-chan's Tumblr, and ANT-chan's Twitter.
A Little About Our Series:
Crimson Isles: The Crimson Isles (in the past known by its native name, the Navitnios) is a fictional archipelago located in the Pacific Ocean. Isolated by rough seas and holding no particularly abundant natural resource, it goes mostly unnoticed by the world at large. It hosts a constitutional monarchy by a queen, Celia IV, who looks remarkably like the last, Celia III... and the last, Celia II... and the last... Celia I...
The Isles' population is about one million - or about two million depending on which report you're looking at.
The native religion depicts a number of colorful deities, including a god of love who goes by many names, and is well known for his male lover and his many, many children. And also the ancient mother god(dess) who is both male and female depending on his (her) current mood. As such, the Isles has always held a "radical" view on gender and sexual orientation, and has in the past century and a half seen an influx of LGBT* immigrants.
This series is character-centric, using the lives of characters to illustrate life, love, and the vibrant culture of the Isles.
OM smutty AUs: Ever wondered what the Crimson Isles characters would be like when seen through the porn goggles? Anything and everything goes, as long as it ends in smut! Canon be damned!
Shadows & Seraphim AU: The course of the Shadows & Seraphim series by one authoress of the duo (ANT-chan) deviates about a year before Shadow Dragon. Sin and Draca stumble across Milo, who ends up sticking around. The main plot points of the timeline don't change, but due to having a softer, less emotionally repressed character involved, the details of the relationship progress a bit faster. X3 What started as a casual writing experiment with a new friend has become just as canon as the original S&S timeline.

:Crimson Isles Series:
Most of our stories can be read independently of each other. However, if you would like to read in a chronological order, here it is:
At age thirty-three, Baaltazar Patroclos was handsome, charming, reasonably wealthy, adventurous, talented... and perhaps too self-confident for his own good. How is he ever going to get out of this one? M/M (2000)
2. If Not for Hope -
Private detective Tarantino Monetari has one last chance. One last chance to make this job work. If he can't make it big with this one case, he'll have to admit defeat and call it quits. But why couldn't he have chosen a simple investigation? M/M (2004)
3. Scribbles -
An amazing little drabble written by VoodooPanda, AKA: NoChristmasJokesPlz. It's her first post here on FP, and she made it a good one. :3 The story of how Kendall met the love of his life. Preslash.(2008)
4. Awkward First Dates -
"He's so perfect Sasha. Like, angel perfect. He's a beautiful, blond, gay angel, sent from the Homo Heaven to make my life complete!" Dating is not Kenny's forte by any means. He's romantically stunted, awkward, and he's only dated people too ditzy to really notice how awkward he really is. How is he supposed to survive a date with a gorgeous med student? M/M (2008)
5. Love Walks In -
Turning over a new leaf is difficult. But it’s not supposed to have you running for your life in the dead of night! Lucky for Zeke, new friends, a new life, and a new love walks in when he needs them most. M/M (2008)
6. One Moment -
Sasha Adelais has resigned himself to the single life at an early age. He's awkward, nerdy, short, and distressingly girly. Not dating material. Or at least, no one but Aiden Patroclos has ever seemed to think so. M/M (2010)
7. One Moment, Act 2 -
Immediately following the end of One Moment's first act. Life in the Crimson Isles goes on. But that doesn't mean it's without its budding romances, or its new adventures. M/M (2010)
