This was a gift for [personal profile] maat_seshat, who probably knows more of the relevant sources than I do, and given that I don't have anywhere as firm a grasp on aristocratic Sengoku material culture as I do on that of earlier or later periods, I was forced to shift into the epistolary mode, as well as do some reading in Japanese. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing it!

I got the absolute best story for Kaleidoscope 2012 - any of you who've read and loved Michelle West's books, drop what you're doing and go read this now!

Women's Words (4605 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1

Relationships: Diora en'Leonne/Valedan kai di'Leonne
Characters: Diora en'Leonne, Teyla en'Leonne, Alina di'Lamberto, Kiriel di'Ashaf, Valedan kai di'Leonne

Fandom: Half World - Hiromi Goto
Summary: Gao Zhen Xi and Jade Rat, from their first meeting to their final parting.

I had a lot of fun writing this one--it went differently than I was planning it, and I like the voice that I used here.

And I received the wonderful

Fandom: Janelle Monae - Works
Summary: She'd heard stories before of people for whom music and magic were one and the same, people who could create songs of enchantment and dances to raise the dead. Nothing like that could really happen, of course.


Kaleidoscope Treats has reopened for submissions, too! (More info and thanks at this post in [community profile] dark_agenda.) I haven't had a ton of time to read in the collections, sadly, but there are a lot of awesome fanworks in there that could use some love--if you have a few spare minutes, please do check them out, and leave kudos or comments as you fancy.

[community profile] dark_agenda's Kaleidoscope challenge is live! The main Kaleidoscope collection and Kaleidoscope treats are now open for reading!

I also received one story, the awesome

These Dreams Are Forever (1392 words) by Anonymous

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Characters: Cindi Mayweather
Summary: She'd heard stories before of people for whom music and magic were one and the same, people who could create songs of enchantment and dances to raise the dead. Nothing like that could really happen, of course.

It is a bit of a character study of the awesome Cindi Mayweather, her music and her magic, and I love it. It is just what I needed to read on this rather grey Sunday morning. Thank you, dear anonymous author!

There's a post with links to recs and discussion posts, and a post with the list of all Kaleidoscope fanworks. Enjoy!

Sleep, omg, I have missed you.

Kaleidoscope nominations close in approximately 9.5 hours! Get yours in if you haven't already!

I wound up nominating Gate 7, Half World, and Antique Bakery. I'm a terrible nominator, really; I tend to enjoy writing to prompts much more than actually thinking up prompts or anticipating receiving things. (Which is why I am so thrilled when my prompts come through in spades, as at last Yuletide.)

# [personal profile] eruthros has the long-list poll for the Top 100 Speculative Fiction Worksgo vote the conventional crap down please

# Via [personal profile] yifu, the trailer for The Woman Knight of Mirror Lake, a movie about Qiu Jin, the radical feminist and anti-Qing revolutionary. I need this movie in my life, so badly.

# The West Memphis Three were freed Thursday night, after more than 18 years in prison. [personal profile] cleolinda has a long, very informative post on the case and its recent developments, including the revelation that a lot of the money that turned up new forensic evidence over the last few years came from Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh.

# Kaleidoscope nominations open at 9pm Pacific time tonight! This is going to be so awesome.
