"Prelude In A"
Author: shadow_side [My LDT]
Part: One of one
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Archive: Wraithbait and Penumbris
Prompt: #001 – Beginnings
Characters: Acastus Kolya, Athos, Rodney McKay, Elizabeth Weir, John Sheppard, Cowan, Pranos, plus several OCs and OFCs
Setting: All Season One – about half pre-Underground, but then with sections pre-Storm and post-Eye, as well one Storm missing scene, and two extended scenes – one Storm, one Eye, (including a short section of dialogue quoted from each episode) – and also concluding with some pre- and post-Brotherhood scenes – because he wouldn’t stop talking! – and two extended Brotherhood scenes (also both involving quoted dialogue. Because canon is sometimes my friend. Sometimes.)
Pairing: Unresolved Kolya/Athos, vague hints of future Kolya/McKay
Rating: R
Warnings: Adult themes, graphic torture, violence, minor (canonical) character deaths
Word Count: 29,803
Many Thanks To: davechicken, for the beta.
Notes: This plot-bunny attacked me constantly until I agreed to write it – partly because I have wanted to take a more in-depth look at the Kolya-Athos dynamic for some time. I also wanted to offer a clear piece of backstory for some of the other fics I’m involved in – and as such this can be taken as a direct prequel to either Special or Planet of the Dinosaurs, or as a stand-alone piece. In fact, most of my non-AU fics are likely to use this as backstory – because it is something I like to know when writing, and as canon has so far offered us little, I decided to work some out.
Summary: There are some things that not even the closest friendship can weather… and some feelings we forever regret admitting.

Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Archive: Wraithbait and Penumbris

In other news - Tony is now out of TM. I got dropped due to being behind with challenge responses, and sadly don't have time to get back into it. Revan is still active, however, and I intend to keep her that way.

Secondly, with regards to ctu_almeida - I have just THREE EPISODES left to see in Season Four. After this, I plan to do a major SL update and hopefully leap into some proper RP.

That is all.

Just a quick RP-related note to let you all know that, having finally finished my exams (YAY!) I am going home for a few days. I will therefore be offline (NOOOOOO!) from Wednesday till Sunday.

Also - for the muns of master_obiwan and morally_cryptic - I will pick up on our SL when I return. We need to finish the Obi - Amber thread, do the second Obi - Revan, and then work out what's going to happen when they reach Korriban. I have a few possible ideas - some of which do NOT make Revan a happy Sith - but we can discuss it properly when I get back.

May the Dark Side be with you!

Ciao!

Summary: In which Yoda teaches driving
Footnote: The car-carrier incident is inspired by real events...

This fic was written on a post-essay-high and, as a result, is unusually weird. Also, it has Yoda. This is weird in itself.

Well, here's the first fic/vid announcement - and due to there being a backlog, it's a long one!

My (closed) archive is here - do head on over and see all the shiny things we have.

Now... [note: please check the content ratings carefully!]

Highlander:

Accidentally In Love - a Kronos/Methos/Duncan vid. (Yes, really.)

Charge of the Horsemen - this is Comes A Horseman re-done... with batteries. Oh, and an ending where the cool characters don't die. Yes, it's anthropomorphic wish-fulfillment fluff-fic... [PG-13 for innuendo]

Reunion - my Not To Be trilogy, considering what might have happened after Kronos crashed dramatically through Methos' window. [R for violence and slash]

Star Wars - KotOR:

The Hunter And The Hunted - HK-47 tracks a fugitive across Kashyyyk, whilst musing on his own existence. [PG for very mild violence]

The Four Seasons - weird implied Revan/Malak drabble series detailing Revan's rise, fall, and second rise as the passing of the seasons. [G because this is just random weirdness]

Destined To Fall - a vid series, currently up to part three, telling the story of Revan's rebirth using actual KotOR footage and music by the Rasmus.

Stargate: Atlantis:

Turbulence Within - post-Eye tag in which Kolya muses on the Atlantis mission. [PG, but only just]

Utilitarianism, Genii-Style - in which the Wraith attack the Genii homeworld, and Kolya is torn over where he ought to be. [PG for mild violence]

Special - friends of mine will know that I refer to this as THE FIC. It is by far the most serious and explicit thing I have ever written. Part three is now in progress. Parts one and two see Kolya discover that he doesn't just want Rodney for interrogation purposes any more... [*NC-17* for explicit sex, slash, knives, and *hints* of non-con]

And that is it, so far! New announcements coming soon...

OK, I don't know if anyone still reads this, but here's the latest update:

I am still dying from essays, and will soon be dying from exams. My last one is on May 31st. After that... I am free until OCTOBER.

I fully intend to go completely wild and let all the muses out at that point. So anyone who happens to miss dark_lord_revan, ctu_almeida, or shadowedslayer, it is just one month until we will be able to come and play again.

Believe me - I, for one, can't wait!

OK, I know I've been virtually non-existant recently. I have just finished the hardest term EVER, with more work than was Humanly possible. But it is now over, and I am taking a few days to recover.

I will then begin to catch up on challenge topics. I know I'm frightfully behind, and apologise profusely - RL has been heavy, I promise. I will get both Tony and Revan caught up ASAP.

Also, I have notes for a few of the people I RP with... [24 S4 spoilers behind the cut...]

I promise you all that I'm still alive. Honest.

I know, I appear to have melted. This is not the case. I am merely a) dying from work, b) having a really weird time, and c) did I mention the weird?

My term finishes in two weeks, at which point I will go home and calm down. At that point, normal nightly RP-service will resume, along with all the missing challenge responses.

I am acutely aware, in particular, that shadowedslayer's absence can't be all that helpful. Tag me if there's anything I should know, otherwise I will attempt to catch up when the world goes more normal again.

Sorry. RL is such a pain, sometimes.

I Feel: drained drained

I must apologise profusely for practically disappearing of late. I am having the weirdest time. Also, I am extremely busy.

I know both dark_lord_revan and ctu_almeida are behind with their responses. I will get this sorted out ASAP, I promise.

If I've missed anything important in SLs (most likely involving shadowedslayer) then just grab me on AIM and hit me till I pay attention to you.

That is all.

I apologise profusely for being so quiet recently. I am completely out of my head for some unknown reason, RL has been weird, and I...

There are no words. This week has been indescribable.

I will be back soon. Lisa will talk to people. Revan will answer challenges. Tony now has m_dessler, so all-new fun and angst surely await.

I am sorry. I will return.

Anyone out there any good at fixing brains?

61 Shadows --- Light Or Dark?
shadow_side
*runs around in circles waving arms above head*

KotOR II! IS HERE! NOW!

So, I may be online a little less, due to some serious playage, at least for however long it takes me to win reconquer the galaxy. In face of NEW PLOT, I thought I had better work out exactly what I'm going to do about Revan, and then link to this entry from Revan's userinfo, so that her alternate canon is clear.

Thus, here's the plan. When I worked out Revan's canon, I took everything I knew about the female, evil version of the plot in KotOR I and worked out what happened and what is likely to have happened, based on Revan as she was appearing in my head, (though the whole thing with her and Malak nevertheless came as quite a surprise!) At the time of canon-sorting, I (very thankfully) did not know how the Revan/Carth plot is supposed to end (she actually KILLS him, though the Revan in my head, I know for a fact, would not.) To any interested KotOR I fans - this was because I left out the Dustil sidequest the first time I played the game through as an evil character, so I didn't get to the end of the Carth romance.

ANYWAY, I digress, as I so often do. The point is that KotOR II has just come out (YAAAAAAAAAY!) and even though I don't yet know what happens, I know for a fact that it MESSES UP MY CANON, as sequels always do. Therefore, Revan will continue to be played as I have been playing her, diverging into fanon because it allows me to keep developing her as I have. If any KotOR II muses turn up, she will consider them to be from an AU (this is pretty much what happened when she met Anakin Skywalker - it allowed us to explain why he hadn't heard of her.)

If anyone has any questions, just drop by and comment, or pounce me on AIM. I promise I'm not scary, really. Even with Revan in my head...

I Feel: excited excited

Apologies for being so slow with replies recently. I've been REALLY busy, like really really really, and early mornings were involved.

Also, just as a heads-up, I'm going home on Wednesday, and I won't be back till Sunday, so dark_lord_revan, ctu_almeida and shadowedslayer will all be quiet during that time, though they will no doubt continue to make a lot of noise in my head.

One last point - 24-S4 has just begun (oh sweet joy of joys!) but, for the moment, Tony will continue to be played just-post-S3. This may change before S4 ends, or he may stay post-S3 until the summer. Either way - please, no spoilers, or I might cry!

I Feel: refreshed refreshed

Those of you who have read the meme I wrote last year on Revan, or who have seen some of her more recent challenge entries, will know a little about Amber. There has been some suggestion (*stares at Anakin!Mun*) that we ought to see some more of Amber, and I'm thinking of a way this might be able to happen without driving Revan completely uber-homicidal (ie, in a way that Revan would never ever ever ever find out about.)

In the meantime, I thought I would write a similar meme on Amber, mostly to get some things worked out in my head, but also for anyone who wants to learn more.

And so...

I'm going through another of my curl-up-and-hide-from-world phases. Don't know why. It may be the onset of work, but I'm not sure. Either way, bear with me. I'll be back to my usual more-replies-than-now self ASAP.

Oh dear. Poor slayer. Poor, freaked-out, Watcher-stalked, soon-to-be-drug-filled, slayer. Well, it is an interesting storyline, at any rate... *eg*

Yes, Lisa's facing the Cruciamentum. And yes, she is sitting in my head, glaring like hell, blaming me for the whole thing. But it's all fun. And there are many threads everywhere for me to follow. And soon, I'll be writing the test itself, which should be good.

In other news, Revan is calming down (as much as a Sith can!) and Tony is talking more as the imminent return of the all-beloved 24 sends my brain into overdrive. I still have challenge responses to write though...

So. Much is happening. This is good.

I Feel: busy busy

Yo.

Many apologies for not being online recently. I've been a) busy, b) tired, c) mildly ill, and d) overdosing on Deep Space Nine. I should be back within a day or so.

Just a couple of notes for the people I RP with:

On the slaying side of things, assume Lisa is in Switzerland now, and consider her to be in a fairly decent mood. I think Christmas made her feel better. Which is good as it makes her stop upsetting everyone else in my head.

As for Revan, she is a) in a very bad mood and b) demanding far too much from me. With regard to the delightful SL she has going on with morally_cryptic, I know we need to get the dear boy off her ship (which will not help her mood, but she'll have to live with it) so do feel free to make a post for him to kill more of her poor doomed minions, and I'll have them jump in when my brain feels ready to cope again. Also, the response saying how much he enjoyed killing all those poor black_shirts? That made Revan's day.

Furthermore, have seen the SWEp3 trailer again, so am bouncing. (Revenge of the Sith, oh WOW what a title, and oh HELL how much is Revan looking forward to seeing it?!) And 24 Season FOUR starts in a MONTH and OH MY GOD I WILL DIE OF ADRENALINE POISONING! But hyper-yay!

And one last thing... HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

I Feel: tired tired (but happy)

If I've managed to post this it means I at least got online for a bit. For unknown reasons, my internet connection has become a bigger bastard than... well, pick someone you really hate. I must apologise to the muns of Anakin and Kara for disappearing offline the other night, due to the same problem. Nothing I do will make this hideous thing work, and I am anticipating the onset of internet withdrawal. Considering that life is not exactly filled with joy at the moment... this is bad news.

Apologies also to those waiting for replies - as soon as I can, I will.
