snickfic: "Nobody can explain a dragon" (Le Guin quotation) (dragon)
The [community profile] whitedwarfrabbithole fics are live! [archiveofourown.org profile] Sunchales wrote me Soap and Squid, a story set in the Botanical Gardens in Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun universe. If you like the books, you should check out the fic. It is very creepy, as the Botanical Gardens should be.

And since there's no anon period, I can tell you about my fic as well, which is written for China Mieville's The Scar. I've always wanted to write fic for this book, although Tanner/Shekel was not what I ever expected to write. I got to write canon tentacles, though! In fact I amused my Twitter timeline quite a bit a couple of weeks ago, angsting over the porn parts. I'd exhausted all creativity by the time I got to the title, though, as you see.

It turns out this is in fact the first m/m I've ever written for a fictional canon. I'm not sure quite how that happened, but there you are.

Summary:

Imprisoned, Remade, free now and alone but for his work mates and for Shekel, who liked him – simply and easily, Tanner had thought, though the view was cloudier now. Who’d be surprised at an old invert wanting something like desire turned his way again, after all that?

June 3 - Hello dear author, I suck, I thought we had a couple more days before assignments went out. If you were hoping for more guidance than was in my requests, I am planning to get a full letter up this weekend. However, I said all the really important stuff there, and if that alone was enough to inspire you, then feel free to go full speed ahead and never mind the letter; I am confident I will love it.
