Title: Good Old Boys
Characters: Mathurin LeBlanc, Moïse Charvet
Rating: PG
Warnings: swearing, brief references to war
Word Count: 4, 274
Summary: Mat stops in to visit a very old friend during a medical conference in Montreal.
Disclaimer: Work is all from my own imagination. Any resemblance to other characters or situations is coincidental.
Notes: Original work, set in the Modern Day Vampire universe. I’ll get a tag or something soon for these, if I keep writing them. And I might, because it’s about what my brain can handle at the moment. If you’ve read “The Best Parts of Existing”, you should be able to follow this one.

I’ve used the conceit that Mat and Mo are speaking French and Mat is kindly relaying the conversation in English, aside from a few words for colour or which are hard to translate. The French words should hopefully be understood from context.

Joual is a dialect of French characteristic of Montreal. You can learn more here, if you’d like.

If I wasn’t so fond of Mo, I’d be very grumpy by now. )

Title: The Best Parts of Existing
Rating: PG
Warnings: some swearing
Word Count: 1,992
Summary: History, knitting, and life lessons from a modern-day vampire.
Disclaimer: Work is all from my own imagination. Any resemblance to other characters or situations is coincidental.
Notes: Original work, written for [livejournal.com profile] consci_fan_mo. Because of the word limit, I couldn't clarify any of the historical references made, but most don't affect the story. The only term you might need is 'courer de bois'('woods runner'), who were fur traders in the late 1600s in Canada.

He's not stuck in the past, it's more that the past has stuck to him. )

Title: The Longest Night
Rating: PG
Warnings: mentions of a war, but only as background, no fighting or death

Disclaimer: Work is all from my own imagination. Any resemblance to other characters or situations is coincidental.

It would happen in depths of winter, Naelinne thinks. )

Title: The Legend of Dreamess and Builder
Rating: G
Spoilers/Warnings: None
Word Count: 1449
Summary: Dreamess and Builder create the world.
Disclaimer: Work is all from my own imagination. Any resemblance to other characters or situations is coincidental.
Notes: I wrote this in Grade 10 History class. One of the assignments was to make a new creation myth. I tried to include many elements of classic creation myths, but do my own thing with them. I suddenly remembered this existed last night as I was falling asleep, and how pleased I was with it at the time. I couldn't find it in my files, but for interest's sake, I typed in a few words and apparently I uploaded it to fictionpress, like ten years ago, and have no memory of it. I didn't even know I had a fictionpress account.

Oh well, I am pleased to have it back. Enjoy!

Before Now there was Then, when naught existed but the stars and black space. )

Title: Error, Error
Rating: G
Spoilers/Warnings: None
Summary: Lux is in charge of the Universe. It is a very boring job.
Notes: Original work. It is silly. Written for [livejournal.com profile] consci_fan_mo, for the prompt '"+++ Divide By Cucumber Error. Please Reinstall Universe And Reboot +++" -(Hex) Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett'

Title: Finding Santa Claus
Rating: G
Word count: 2394
Summary: When Becca finds out her Christmas list never got mailed to Santa, her friend Mariah comes up with a plan to save the day.
Author's notes: I wrote this a few years ago for an online course I took through my highschool, called 'Writer's Craft'. We were supposed to write a short story (the only creative writing we really got to do) and it was around Christmas and this was what I came up with. It came to me as I was playing around in Poser, working with some children figures. My teacher pointed out that she didn't think parents would approve of a couple of the things in it (children going off with a stranger, speaking gramatically incorrect), but, truthfully, even though it's written in a children's story style, I never really intended it to be for one audience over another. Anyway, I've tweaked it a bit to improve it and I thought I'd post it, since 'tis the season.

Why aren't you merry? )
