Fanfiction

A Memory of Ashes
(ao3 ff.net)
Paths cross in the crumbling city of Luskan as Jarlaxle confronts his memories of what happened in Baldur's Gate. A story of betrayal, intrigue, and gratuitous warehouse explosions. Post-Spellplague, pre-Neverwinter Saga.

Rules (tumblr)
Prompt-fic. Kimmuriel ponders the consequences of his actions. A missing scene from "A Memory of Ashes."

Cold (tumblr)
A ficlet I wrote when I was drunk. Jarlaxle runs into a cold, tired Entreri in a universe where "Charon's Claw" never really happened.

There's No Going Down (dreamwidth)
Sequel to Cold, written in a fic-trade with callmesherly on tumblr.

Unquiet Ghosts (livejournal tumblr)
Missing scene fic after the end of The Silent Blade. Dwahvel Tiggerwillies has some unfinished business with the assassin that's been haunting her.

AU: Heaven is Overrated (index)
Space-opera!AU. Yes, really. This is what happens when I listen to too much sci-fi filk in one day.
Stowaway : Catti-brie finds a stowaway as she's leaving Menzoberranzan's orbit
But Only So An Hour : Drizzt meets famed geneticist Alustriel Silverhand under less-than-ideal circumstances.
Meeting
: Jarlaxle meets a human bounty hunter about a particular renegade
Underbelly : Jarlaxle reports back to Vierna before they begin their mission
Fire Point : Kimmuriel has some news (and some concerns) about Jarlaxle's activities on Calimshan
Vaasa
: On Damara's coldest moon, Entreri and Jarlaxle plot their next move
 
The Opposite of Arrogance (tumblr)
Another AU. Catti-brie finds herself working for Bregan D'aerthe during the course of "Starless Night."

Counterfeit (dreamwidth)
Sellswords era. A brief, frustrating conversation between Entreri and Jarlaxle about emotions.

Domestic Fluff (tumblr)
Fluffy prompt-fic. The sellswords gain a troublesome apartment-warming present. A revised version was posted to fanfiction.net under the title "Positive Space."

So Slow a Pace as This (dreamwidth)
Drabble written in post-Maestro feels.

A Moment In Ice (dreamwidth)
Pre-PotWK. Entreri and Jarlaxle find themselves on the road in Damara when a blizzard hits. Cuddling and fluff.

Sparks in the Night (tumblr)
AU ficlet. Banter-fic that takes place after a plot deviation from Last Threshold.

As The Ice Will Go
(dreamwidth tumblr)
Pre-Maestro, missing scene fic. Something to fill in the gaps from Entreri going from refusing to exist in the same city as Jarlaxle to asking for his help.

The Ninth Parry
(dreamwidth tumblr)
Sequel to As The Ice Will Go. Artemis inches slightly closer towards tolerating Jarlaxle again.

Isolation (livejournal)
Ficlet. A kinkmeme fill. Prompt was Catti Brie/Drizzt/Entreri threesome. I cannot write porn, so they got cooperative wound-treatment instead.

Unmasked (livejournal: Part 1 Part 2)
An AU of an AU. A sequel to SquirrellyThief's fic, Masquerade, in which Entreri and Drizzt run into each other and unknowingly have a one-night stand during the Spellplague timeskip. I wanted to know what would happen next.

some tricks of desperation (dreamwidth)
Missing scene from Maestro. Because when you've been captured by drow and can't escape, there's nothing to distract you from hitting your ex-boyfriend/business partner in the face with his bad life choices.

AU: Herding Cats (index)
AU from "The Last Threshold" onward, in which everyone has something resembling the capacity to communicate like adults.  Eventual Dahlia/Drizzt/Entreri/Jarlaxle OT4.
Testing Links and Limits: Drizzt and Dahlia Talk About Feelings
Tolerare: Jarlaxle doesn't lose track of them this time.
Sparks in the Night: banter!fic. Takes place sometime after Jarlaxle shows up but before Entreri forgives him
everywhere like mill dust: hair-braiding, flower-weaving fluffiness


Meta/Essays

Happy flailings about Starless Night

Untitled 3 (tumblr)
Mutterings about mysterious character motivations and RAS's fondness for them.

A short personal essay about empathy and character development.

Why Idalia's Flute Can Go Blow Itself to Hell (dreamwidth)
Personal essay about asexuality, autism, and Road of the Patriarch. An examination and defense of my own emotions.


beekeeperofeden: (orange cell)
Yet more herding cats AU.

Takes place at the end of the Last Threshold, after Jarlaxle rescues them from Draygo Quick's castle.  In the same AU as Testing Links and Limits, so there is already-established Dahlia/Drizzt/Entreri.  Takes place before Sparks in the Night.

Wordcount: 1090

(verb) to bear, endure )

-

(Note:  There are around twenty ways Jarlaxle's conversation with Artemis could have gone.  This is the "healthy communication for everyone" AU, but I'm keeping the less optimistic routes on standby for various other fic notions.)

beekeeperofeden: (yellow black cell)
Summary: After a series of near-disasters emphasizes the importance of clear communication, Drizzt and Dahlia have a necessary conversation about their relationship and where its limits lie. Pre-OT3 (Dahlia/Drizzt/Entreri)

Wordcount: 2123

Note: The disasters referenced in the summary are the diverging point of this AU. However, they don't actually occur in this fic.  This fic is entirely aftermath.

In which people actually communicate... )
beekeeperofeden: (Default)
So the effective premise for my "herding cats" AU (which I haven't posted much of yet) is basically that, if people actually would communicate with each other like adults, they could be braiding flowers into each others' hair in a sunlit meadow instead of trying to kill each other and running off into blizzards.

This is, I guess, the endpoint of that premise.  Sometime after The Last Threshold.  The companions of the hall, if they are alive, are not in this fic.

Summary:  Polyamorous hair-braiding in a sunlit meadow.  Artemis/Dahlia/Drizzt/Jarlaxle.  Possibly the most saccharine thing I've ever written.
Wordcount: 2086

Spring cleaning! I'm going through my WIP folder and trying to finally post those fics that have been a paragraph or two away from completion for literal months. This is the first of the batch.

Summary: Missing scene from Maestro. Because when you've been captured by drow and can't escape, there's nothing to distract you from hitting your ex-boyfriend/business partner in the face with his bad life choices.
Wordcount: 851

broken bones are stronger for the breaking / no, the danger's in the bending / the concessions that you never can take back )
beekeeperofeden: (heaven is overrated)
More space-opera fic. This one takes place not long after Stowaway and will hopefully offer new insight on Fire Point.

Summary: In which Drizzt meets Alustriel Silverhand, famed geneticist, under less-than-ideal circumstances. (Title from Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay.")

they're kindred instruments you know, the scalpel and the plow )

beekeeperofeden: (words)
(And by "review" I definitely mean "disorganized thought-spam.")

Non-spoilery thoughts on "Hero":

Not as bad as I was worried it would be. If this is where the series ends, I'm pretty okay with it. I wish we'd gotten more resolution with the Netherese-betrayal arc, but the amount of resolution we got lays the foundation for post-fic slowburn forgiveness fic.

Spoilery thoughts on "Hero", in no particular order:

Summary: I'm pretty okay with this book. There are things I would have liked to have gotten more of, but there's nothing that really bothered me. I don't feel bitter and upset like I did at the end of Road of the Patriarch, which was my main concern. There's a lot of ripe soil for post-canon fluff fic, which also makes me happy. If this is the resolution and last hurrah for these characters, I can accept that.
beekeeperofeden: (the opposite of arrogance)
The Opposite of Arrogance is an AU that diverges during Starless Night. In it, Catti-brie gets Jarlaxle to agree to help her rescue Drizzt from the Baenres, but is informed that it could take a while. In the meantime, she's working for Bregan D'aerthe and experiencing culture shock with Artemis Entreri.

There is only one fic posted in this AU. There Will Be More.

The Opposite of Arrogance

beekeeperofeden: (Default)
Herding Cats, despite the title, is the AU where people can communicate and negotiate polyamorous relationships like fucking adults.

In chronological order:

Testing Links and Limits
Tolerare
Sparks in the Night
everywhere like mill dust
beekeeperofeden: (come into my parlor)
Come Into My Parlor is an AU that diverges during Streams of Silver. Right now I've only posted one fic in this universe. There Will Be More.

This AU is entirely cohobbitation's fault.

Extreme UST while Vierna is teaching Sharlotta the proper stance to wield a whip.


beekeeperofeden: (heaven is overrated)
Heaven Is Overrated is the space opera AU that just won't die. Here are the pieces of it, listed in chronological order.
 
Stowaway : Catti-brie finds a stowaway as she's leaving Menzoberranzan's orbit
But Only So An Hour : Drizzt meets famed geneticist Alustriel Silverhand under less-than-ideal circumstances.
Meeting
: Jarlaxle meets a human bounty hunter about a particular renegade
Underbelly : Jarlaxle reports back to Vierna before they begin their mission
Fire Point : Kimmuriel has some news (and some concerns) about Jarlaxle's activities on Calimshan
Vaasa
: On Damara's coldest moon, Entreri and Jarlaxle plot their next move
beekeeperofeden: (Default)
I felt like trying to organize all my fics by chronological order, so here they are. AUs are listed at roughly the point where they diverge from canon (except for the space opera AU, which is outside the timeline entirely.)

beekeeperofeden: (sword)
Summary: Further missing scene pre-Maestro fic. Follow-up to "As the Ice Will Go." Artemis inches slightly closer towards tolerating Jarlaxle again.
Wordcount: 1369

we both know what memories can bring / they bring diamonds and rust )
beekeeperofeden: (Default)
Summary: Pre-Maestro, missing scene fic. Something to fill in the gaps from Entreri going from refusing to exist in the same city as Jarlaxle to asking for his help. (Title from Robert Frost's 'To the Thawing Wind.')
Wordcount: 1286

Same rules as ever. Music on shuffle, I write as long as the song is playing.

beekeeperofeden: (yellow black cell)
[crossposting from tumblr]

Context: This AU deviates at the end of The Last Threshhold. Rather than listening to Kimmuriel and going elsewhere, Jarlaxle catches up with everyone else outside Luskan and begins to travel with them for a while as they all go north, before they all do a Rip Van Winkle.

Summary:
Banter!fic. Jarlaxle and Entreri are both assholes and Drizzt is done with both of them. No one has healthy conflict resolution skills.

Same rules as ever. I put my music on shuffle and write until the song ends. (I have gone back and edited a little of these, if only not to end in the middle of a sentence.) Lots of Wicked this time 'round, lots of Jarlaxle and Entreri.

beekeeperofeden: (dim orange)
Summary: Pre-PotWK. Entreri and Jarlaxle find themselves on the road in Damara when a blizzard hits. Fluff.

beekeeperofeden: (stark orange)
Trade-fic with callmesherly. She requested a sequel to Cold. It starts exactly where Cold ended. Title comes from "Whistles the Wind" by Flogging Molly.
Wordcount: 1148

there's an ocean between where i am and where i want to be )
beekeeperofeden: (dim orange)
Drabble. Missing scene, takes place during Chapter 7 of Maestro and therefore contains spoilers.
