    Some really good takes on Cait and Vi. I think the Jinx vignette is excellently written particularly.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    An adorable Polly, and a nice continuation from the book. Not aiming quite for Pratchett's style, but there's daedalic little flashes of it to keep you grounded in the Discworld feel. And if it isn't in the same style, it still seems to have the *idea* of Monstrous Regiment down pat.

    Summary

    A mysterious stranger is found in the wilds near Oerba. By all rights, she should have been put to death or imprisoned. But instead, the elders called for the great seer of Paddra. After that, they stared calling her "the saviour", a gift from Etro and the Maker. A fourteen-year-old Fang doesn't understand what all the fuss is about. And then she meets this saviour.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I always preferred Raziel's serious work, and this is one of the better ones. Nice bit of mystery in there, and good extrapolation on the characters: not just characterising them appropriately and faithfully, but inventing believable events for them which suit the rather different-from-canon scenario.

    Summary

    “You’re young,” Alex says bluntly. “Younger than me, even, and no one thought me any good until I’d proven myself in battle. And those of us who study the sword have many more opportunities to prove ourselves publicly--you lot are all shut away in your cloister, how would anyone even know?”

    “It’s not like they thought anything of me there either until the first Trials,” Thom says, a touch bitter. “I am so tired of proving myself.”

    “I would be too,” Alex says. “I’d look for something decisive. That’s not to say you have to do what Delia says, of course.”

    “You don’t seem to doubt me,” Thom says, something odd in his voice. He knocks his shoulder against Alex’s, carefully.

    Alex means to use Thom of Trebond to further his own plans. It doesn't turn out that way at all.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don't quite know that this hits quite the right characterisation notes for everyone*, but it gets them 95% of the time, and the notes are very good all the same. Alex is one of my favourite Tortall characters, so focusing on him is always appreciated. His interaction with Alanna particularly is spot on in my eyes. Worth it.

    *I imagine Delia and Roger several shades more intelligent, Alex more controlled even in these sorts of situations, and Thom just as arrogant but in a slightly different manner.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A finely-crafted little story. Good work on Chuck and (despite not being that prominent) Stacker particularly, I think. And manages to leave Raleigh and Mako as the excellent Drift partners that they are while Raleigh and Chuck screw each other. Making any set of lovers into Drift partners (always better than their usual pairing) and vice versa is the scourge of PR 'fic.
