► Pretty much the first thing I knew this morning was that Stand Still Stay Silent
had updated, and I was/am filled with so much excitement that I didn’t even care that I hadn’t finished that short fic* I wanted to write before the chapter started. It’s updating
itself already made me feel all teary and aching, so… that’s promising? Ugh, Lalli. ♥
* on the bright side, it did inspire me to get my butt into gear and stop worrying about whether it was too OTT with its angst long enough to write the last one hundred words needed and post it?
► So I’ve been watching FFA’s 100 words of something threads for a while now, and recently have been trying to write for them. Late yesterday, it occurred to me that I hadn’t even looked at what the themes were for the latest post, so I decided to at least look at them even though I was already pretty tired at that point.
And then I mourned, because so many of themes were right up my alley, but I was tired and didn’t want to write.
Anyways, I bring this up because one of them was “100 words of death on a beach”, and of course I immediately thought of ( brief SSSS spoiler, I guess? )
But I’ve also
been reading the Kalevala, and suddenly thought about Aino too, and the end result was… I think I have a new crossover ship?
Aino could meet her in the water! It would be perfect! I’ve already started poking at a potential fic, though idk if it’ll ever get anywhere.
Then I went, “oh, poor Kyllikki, I’m taking her water-maiden girlfriend away from her”, and then it hit me like a speeding sledgehammer to the face: Sigrun/Kyllikki
. Idk how it would even happen— time travel accident? Sigrun just being an awesome Norwegian warrior woman tromping her way through Finland?— but I think we can all agree that Sigrun would make a much better husband than Lemminkäinen, y/y?
...And then I started thinking about whose personalities would actually complement one another’s best, and got hit with Tuuri/Kyllikki. They’re both social! They could travel the world and hang out with lots of people!
AND THAT was the point where I realized that I needed to stop thinking about this before I ended up with approximately half a million crossover ships for two tiny fandoms.
► Right, I’m past due for a round-up of my fic. So:
- Stargazing [AO3 Link] (Stardew Valley, Maru/Penny, drabble)
- beyond the winter night [AO3 Link] (Stand Still Stay Silent, Ensi, Aino, Veeti, drabble)
- Decontamination [AO3 Link] (Stand Still Stay Silent, Sigrun/Tuuri, drabble)
- The Final Sighs of Trees (Stand Still Stay Silent, Emil/Lalli, <1K)
