Now that the voting is over and the authors list is up, I can finally talk about what I wrote for the Secret Santa fic exchange at [livejournal.com profile] saiunkoku_fic. I’d never done a fic exchange before since I don’t write that often but I thought I’d give it a try since it was only a 500 word minimum and I didn’t have any costume stuff I was rushing to finish. The assignments went out at the end of November and I didn’t think it would take me too long to finish but wow, I was wrong!

I got the organizer’s request for an alternate universe so I was trying to figure out a crossover I could do and then I thought why not do a Genju no Seiza crossover since Fuuto is a reluctant king like Ryuuki is at the beginning of Saiunkoku? I mostly cast the other characters as the guardian beasts and then the idea exploded into a 15 page, 8,500 word fic that I didn’t finish until Christmas eve! @_@

I actually still would have liked to edit more considering I didn’t write about half of the last big scene until the final day but I just didn’t have any more time; there was a small typo and a little spacing error I didn’t catch until after it was posted and maybe I’ll go back and polish this up a bit when I have time. I didn’t think it was likely anyone knew Genju no Seiza so I put in lots of description to help readers picture the world and make it understandable even if people didn’t know it. I was kind of nervous about it since it was a crossover with an obscure series and pretty strange (Saiunkoku characters having magical powers and transforming into animals? o_O;) but several of the other writers for the exchange seemed to like it.

It was amusing fun since I could be a bit silly and fangirly but it’ll be quite a while before I write anything this long again. It ate up a lot of my free time in December and I need to get back to working on costume stuff now. ^_^;;;

Title: The Legend of Dhalashar
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ladyofthethread
Rating: T
Genre: Fantasy
Word count: 8,510
Characters: Ryuuki, Shou, Kochou, Ensei, Shuuei, Kouyuu, Seiran, Shuurei, Shusui, Ryuuren
Summary: Ryuuki is the reincarnated king of the mysterious kingdom of Dhalashar with many supernatural powers… but no control over them! It’s up to the reluctant king’s guardian beasts to find the missing shaman who can bring his powers under control before a disaster befalls the kingdom.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] grey_damaskena for the 2010 [livejournal.com profile] saiunkoku_fic exchange. She requested an AU so this is a crossover using the world from the manga Genju no Seiza (an obscure series done by the same author as Petshop of Horrors). Only about half of the series has been translated so far and takes place mainly in modern Japan with little actually seen of Dhalashar so I’ve taken a lot of liberties with Genju no Seiza canon.
Warnings: extremely AU for both series, one very brief gory scene

There are stories told by travellers of a legendary oasis along the Silk Road… )
