So. Some of you have seen my map project, but as I think from the lack of posts there that the shine has worn off the G+ for most of you, I'll shall trot this over here.

I have to adjust some geography for plot purposes - specifically I wrote in something about a river-as-border - and then I started looking at where exactly that border was and, er, got kinda frustrated with relative size and placement of countries.

So, behind the cut...

this way to the geekery )

Thoughts?

Biggest spoilers here, except for the part where there are all kinds of fuzzy handwavey bits. Help! Also it sort of broke the episode format where it got fuzzy.

THE END )

More episode summaries, taking us through to the end-of-season cliffhanger.

(first part of the season is here

... we now return to our regular programming... )
lady_songsmith: owl (nightmare queen)
Well, most people were interested. But I'll put this behind a spoiler cut for those who'd rather not see it until fic-time.

Episodes I-VII, which takes us to some sort of season hiatus, I think - good stopping point, anyway.

NFE reveals are up, so now I can talk about my story here, instead of just nattering the ears off those patient souls who encouraged me through the process. I decided early on that the title was going to be "If You Only Walk Long Enough" from an Alice quote, but as this story wound on to deadline, I started thinking it ought to be titled "if you only write long enough." I did actually have it finished by deadline if not beta'd, so that's an improvement over last year - perhaps next year I will actually have it turned in by deadline. (Crazy talk, I know.)

So about the story itself.

Rating: PG
Notes: Golden Age, canon-fitting but meant for my Nightmare Queen-verse.

Today was more typing up of NaNo longhand. Among the scenes I got typed were all three of the "setting off to rescue X" bits. They're interesting, as a set, so here, have (rather fragmentary) setting off on the quest snippets:

First Peter: )

Then Edmund: )

And Lucy: )

All right, all right! Here is a bit of the NaNo writing that does not suck (as much), featuring the OC that I don't hate.   Sheesh, people.

Lucy's being impetuous again...  )

Did I say only two parts? Did you believe me? Gullible, you lot.

Ramble, part deux )
lady_songsmith: owl (worldbuilding)
I started out to ramble a bit about plot and worldbuilding in the Nightmare Queen story, and I did, indeed, ramble. And then I had five pages and wasn't even halfway done with the stuff I was going to talk about. So I guess this is part 1 of... hopefully just 2, but apparently I'm long-winded.

In this part: some plot events to come, duties of the Four, Narnian society

Long ramble is looooong )
