Misses Clause 2011
Misses Clause is a challenge within a challenge, dedicated to increasing the presence, agency, and general awesome of women in Yuletide fandoms.
The Misses Clause Collection is open to any Yuletide 2011, Yuletide Madness 2011, or New Years Resolution 2012 submissions that focus on female, trans, or nonbinary characters, or those that explicitly pass the Bechdel test: fics that feature 1) at least two women, 2) who have at least one conversation, 3) about something other than a man. So go fourth, fic, and sing the praises of female characters everywhere!

Queen La, the lonely. High Priestess La, the empty. All she asked for was a companion to share her burden. A non-monkey burden. The Leopard priests brought her a slightly bruised daughter. Queen La, the lonely, wasn’t quite so lonely now that she had her lost princess.
Princess Ja of Opar wore for a crown that which she had killed with her own hand, because nobody hurts Mummy and gets away with it.
Gods versus Aliens by fresne for alice
04 May 2012
It may be generally understood that the Greek gods were arrogant a******s and Artemis was really good at violence.
At the dawn of the Trojan War, Iphigenia was prepared to be a willing sacrifice to Arrow Rain Showering Artemis (she's so moon-struck dreamy). Penelope was ready to do the practical thing in Ithaca. Circe had vital experiments to complete. Vital! Penthesilea was just waiting for the war to start. Achilles was looking forward to some lovely encounters with heroes. Helen was taking a hot steamy bath.
Which is why the aliens really shouldn't have tried to shock and awe the earthlings by beaming up the Queens and stealing Artemis' sacrifice. Big mistake. Huge really.
Or, how Iphigenia escaped certain death and Helen found new opportunities.

Flying as they was through the Black, Ye Xian had to decide just how she wanted to deal with the crap in her life and there was a rutting lot of crap. While Rhodopis wasn’t much of a fairy godmother, but she was gorram good engineer. Which is to say, Cinderella is a pretty common story, but she’d have been better off selling foot porn what with those tiny feet a' hers.

Like when Isis went to live in the marsh and begged for food for her baby, Serqa went to live on the roof of the Gorgos Sisters Hellenic Gymnasium for girls. Like Isis, she had a curse to lift and steps to take through the world that was full of magic if you’d stop to tell the tale.
