Yes, I continue plugging away at this little webcomic (thanks again [personal profile] rahirah for introducing me to it). Here's a drabble series inspired by #724, in which Sigrun is her usual reassuringly tactful self.

I keep getting fannisher and fannisher about Stand Still, Stay Silent (see here for explanation). So here's a fic I had to write about the fallout of chapter 13, before chapter 14 starts next week and this hopefully gets jossed all to hell. It can probably be read as a straight-up zombie infectee story if you're not all read up. It's fairly bleak.

Title: Blood Makes Noise
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Stand Still, Stay Silent
Rating: PG13
Word count: ~1300
Summary: Tuuri's situation after chapter 13. Someone has to fix the tank so everyone can get home, even if...

She just sits there staring at the dead troll )

This wasn't a hugely productive year for me, fannish-wise, but I did write a few things I'm pretty happy with:

Avalanche (Game of Thrones, Gen). After the battle of Hardhome, the wight that was the chieftain Karsi rises with all the others. Then she and everyone else in the white walkers' army start moving, slowly but surely, south. Snowflake by snowflake, winter. Is. Coming.

Talking To Plants (BtVS, Willow/Tara). Willow's pregnancy came as a shock. ...Well, it would, wouldn't it. But there's a perfectly logical explanation.

Waylaid (BtVS, Tara/Faith). Wishverse: Faith has a job to do. She's supposed to go to Sunnydale and fix what the last Slayer couldn't, or at least die trying. She shouldn't let herself get held up like this.

Water of Life (Stand Still Stay Silent, Sigrun/Mikkel). Walking for hours in sopping wet clothes after a life-or-death fight in ice water is something Norwegian hunters do every day, no need to get worried. Or so Sigrun would like them to think.

The Scrying Of Lot 48 (BtVS/Parks and Rec crossover, gen). Willow Rosenberg goes into a bar and meets... Ron Swanson!

The Rugged Pyrrhus, or Holiday By Mistake (Game of Thrones/Withnail and I crossover, gen). Izembaro, the arrogant leader of a small Braavosi theatre troupe specializing in bad rhymes and fart jokes, sometimes gets very drunk and claims to be from a city called Lundon. Nobody really believes him.

In Which Pooh Discovers A Blue Box (Dr Who/Winnie the Pooh crossover, gen). The Doctor is delighted to land in the Hundred Acre Woods. Well, he would be. But what sort of trouble will the Doctor's arrival bring for Pooh and his little friends? And why have Eeyore and Rabbit gone missing...?

It Raineth On The Just (BtVS, gen). After the events of "Tabula Rasa", Giles leaves Sunnydale and returns home to London. If it can still be his home after everything he's been through over the last few years. And who are those mysterious shapes who keep following him down rainy streets…?

A Slayin' Song Tonight (BtVS, gen). Five holiday ornaments that can be used to slay vampires, and one vice versa. AKA the Scooby Holiday Meet-Up is about as peaceful as you'd expect.

Good luck to all my American friends tomorrow. May things work out smoothly. Try not to blow up the world or anything.





And speaking of apocalypses, the excellent webcomic Stand Still Stay Silent put up a very neat family tree of all the characters the other day, and so I wrote a drabble about one of the ancestor characters who is fairly badass.

Deep In The Woods; 100-word drabble about Ensi Hotakainen, who was born after the world ended and never says much.

So it appears I'm fannish about something new. If writing fic for it is any indication.

What is it? A webcomic, recommended to me by [personal profile] rahirah a while back, called Stand Still, Stay Silent.

What's it about? Post-apocalypse! 90 years after a plague all but wiped out humanity by transforming every victim into a ravenous mutated monster, the populated world consists of Iceland and a few small, heavily defended settlements in Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Danish island of Bornholm. The rest of the world is known as "The Silent World", and nobody's set foot on the continent in years. But for complicated reasons, a cross-national team consisting of a few clueless teenagers and two dispensible soldiers are sent to investigate the mainland in a small tank with a few guns. Oh, and also the old gods are back. Maybe. And there are spirit warriors in the dreamrealm and stuff.

Why should you read it? Apart from the gorgeous artwork and general post-apocalyptic doom, it's got a great sense of humour and some really neat character work going on. It's very Scandinavian in tone, meaning you get less of explosions and manly action and more of people being passive-aggressively ironic, being surprised every time someone attacks them, and going "What?" because they can't understand what the hell the Dane is saying (really, linguists should love this). The monster design and world-building is just astounding, and the author never lets the readers forget that as horrible as the monster they face are, they're still human somewhere underneath.

So what about this fic? Well, it's just a little triple drabble I had to throw together after the last dozen or so updates. It'll probably be jossed within a few hours, so I might as well post it. If you want to read it and don't have time to read from the beginning of the comic, you'll get basic context by reading from this installment, 20 pages back.

Title: Water of Life
Fandom: Stand Still, Stay Silent, set after page 503
Rating: PG13
Characters/Pairing: Sigrun, Mikkel, Emil. Halfway to Sigrun/Mikkel.
Word count: 3x100
Summary: Walking for hours in sopping wet clothes after a life-or-death fight in ice water is something Norwegian hunters do every day, no need to get worried. Or so Sigrun would like them to think.

Pfft. All she needs is a few stitches, dry clothes and a double shot of aquavit. )
