Author's note: Written for
 [personal profile] hamsterwoman  for [community profile] fandom_stocking  2018; I have taken the liberty of inventing an elven and goblin tradition, in which the death of anyone — including the emperor — is followed, if possible, by the shutting up of their private room or rooms for a period of time, no less than six months and no more than 12, to be followed by the disposal and dispersal of the belongings inside.
Linguistic note: Ulishenathaän is the word used to describe a token of the dead.

kaffyr: (Bored in Porco Rosso)
Ack. Or Possibly Gack. 

My back hurts, which is Same Old Same Old. And yesterday, which is when I started this post, suffered as a result. I've been told I really should start my exercises again, which ... tell me something I don't know, you know? I'd just really, really like to know why this happens, rather than "it's the stress." Hell, I had lots of stress when I was 35, and I didn't suffer this kind of back pain. Therefore, I wince, grumble, whinge, and reluctantly decide to go back to at least some of the exercises. As I do every time, and then gradually forget, so I suppose it's my own damn fault.

The only respite I had yesterday watching 
[personal profile] thisbluespirit 's lovely S&S videos, and reading an inordinate amount of The Goblin Emperor fic. I'm somewhat bowled over by the sheer amount of pornfic for the fandom, although I shouldn't be; what is it, Rule 34, 36, or 39? At least one piece is pretty darned good and emotionally satisfying. The rest ... not going to look, because The Goblin Emperor is my comfort novel, about a young, honorable, truly good person, and seeing noncon or outright rape fic concerning him ... that has me noping on out of there. YKINMK, I know, but ... nopity-nope-nope for me. 

I know that the back pain wasn't the sole reason for my unhappiness; I simply couldn't get anything done, and that stressed me out enough for my hands to go painfully numb. 

As for thinking? "Brain and brain — what is brain?"

Title: Song From the Western Marshes
Author: 
[personal profile] kaffyr 
Fandom: The Goblin Emperor
Characters: Csevet Aisava, Aäno, Haru, Kevo, Pelchara, Maia Drazhar/Edrihasavar VII
Summary:Two years after Edrihasavar's ascension to the throne; Mer Csevet Aisava returns to Edonomee to help close an unhappy chapter of the emperor's life and, perhaps, open a better one for one of those left behind.
Words:3,043
Author's Note: Written for 
[personal profile] hamsterwoman , during [community profile] fandom_stocking  2017. I have always wondered what Maia would have wanted for the tiny staff that served Edonomee during his time there, and which he left behind when he boarded the airship to the Untheileinese court. I choose to believe that he would have treated them as well as he could, especially once he had a year or two of rule under his belt, and that his affection for Aäno’s voice might have led him in this direction. I hope the recipient, and other readers, will forgive my naming of Kevo’s other daughter, Aäno’s sister. I could not find mention of her in the novel or its appendices.

Fandom: The Goblin Emperor
Words: 1,408
Characters: Maia Drazhar, Cala Athmaza
Summary: "They are capricious, friendly, aloof, sly, trusting, all of these things in one body," Cala said. "but most of them, it seems to us, enjoy interacting with anyone willing to treat them with kindness." The Emperor of the Elflands finds a new source of warmth.
Edited by: None but myself. I obsessively read and reread; if there are mistakes, they are mine alone, and I will correct them once alerted to them.
Author's note:This was written for 
[personal profile] nenya_kanadka , in the 2016 [community profile] fandom_stocking  fun. She is a fan of "The Goblin Emperor," possibly one of my favorite comfort books of all time. I hope she likes this story of Maia and Cala.

Author's note: This was written for 
[personal profile] hamsterwoman  for the 2015 [community profile] fandom_stocking  effort, and  I heartily apologize to her for the late IOU delivery.  I am truly embarrassed about my track record!  This was my first foray into fanfic for “The Goblin Emperor” — which may be my all-time favorite comfort read, and in which universe I truly wish the author would continue to write.
