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.

(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.)

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... )

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.

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.

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.")

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.')

[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.

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

Drabble. Missing scene, takes place during Chapter 7 of Maestro and therefore contains spoilers.

A Note about the Thing )

Summary: Sellswords!era. (Probably between SotS and PotWK.) A brief, frustrating conversation about emotion.

(I wrote this last week while the parts of my brain responsible for actual human communication were malfunctioning. I'm not sure if it quite works the way I want it to. The later dialogue is the part that's important to me, but I'm not sure how well the early dialogue sets it up.)

Trigger warnings (highlight to read): Body horror.

I felt like warming up the writerly muscles, so I put my music on shuffle and wrote for each song that came up, for as long as it was playing. Nothing here but ficlets, but it was fun.

First chapter here. (Warning: My main strengths as a writer are bad weather and grieviously injuring the characters. This chapter contains both.)

Someone helpfully pointed out some issues with my suggested timeline and as a result I made some revisions to my outline. It doesn't change most of the events (interlude/backstory events largely got spaced out) but it does change the emotional impact of some of the frontstory events.

Fandom: Legend of Drizzt
Era: Post-Spellplague, pre-Neverwinter Saga. Specifically, it's set in 1411, with interludes in 1373.
Pairings: None. There is no shipping, only sadness and fire.
Characters: Jarlaxle, Artemis Entreri
Summary: 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.

Notes: This fic originated from two different questions about the timeskip. You may recall that one of the few details we have about the whole selling-Entreri-out-the-the-Netherese thing is that Kimmuriel and Quenthel teamed up to fuck with Jarlaxle's memories, making him think that Entreri had betrayed him somehow. He's aware of the deception by the time the Neverwinter Saga rolls around, but I wondered, how did he find out? In addition, Entreri is at one point hesitant to go to Luskan because of an unspecified incident there that he thinks Jarlaxle would want revenge on him for, forty years prior to Gauntlgrym. What happened there and why doesn't Jarlaxle realize that Entreri was alive at that point? From the information we have, it's reasonable to assume that these two incidents occurred around the same time. This fic is the result of me trying to answer these two questions.
