    Summary

    “Excuse me. Might I trouble you for some wine to ease the pain? You truly are quite the beauty. Do you know where whores go?”

    The little man lay on his back looking up at me. Like all men, he felt compelled to call me beautiful, as though I had been unaware until that moment. I noticed that he was missing most of his nose; he was supremely ugly.

    “I’m afraid I can’t move my legs.”

    Had I killed the insane Daenerys when I first realized that I should, the man who had saved my life might still have his. I felt myself drained of all emotion. I stared silently at the little man; his very existence seemed an absurdity. I thought to put my sword into the his heart, but instead raised my foot and brought my hob-nailed boot down on his face once, twice and a third time without answering him. Blood and brain sprayed from his crushed head and he voided his waste. At least he died silently.

    ---

    John Carter and Dejah Thoris of the Burroughs novels are mis-directed to the world of Game of Thrones, fulfilling two separate prophecies. Carter is a Confederate officer; his ideas might be considered unenlightened. Dejah is very good at killing people, but she feels bad about it.

    Summary

    My collection of thirty stories which will be added to across the month of November, 2021. If you don't know what Omovember is, please read the tags and know what you're getting yourself in for...

    The prompt list is my own; all is explained in the Introduction. I'll be adding fandoms as the stories that feature them are uploaded (thought it would annoy people the least!) but there are no actual crossovers; each chapter is a different fandom.

    Summary

    This is an experiment/practice for me as far as writing longer works goes as well as an attempt to bring some "finality" to the Barsoom mythos, which was left open-ended book to book as far as I'm aware. I think it's interesting that genre authors would write series(s) back in the day without ever once thinking that the final book was a "capstone" in any sense, so I'm writing my own ending to the Barsoom series with a sense of finality that ERB (or any writer of the time) never would have given it.

    Summary

    The sun crested the distant cliffs across the vast expanse of sand and dirt in front of them, and in a blink the purple of the Barsoomian night was chased away by brilliant daggers of sunlight. Dejah whooped and shouted “It is three days’ ride— follow me!”

    John Carter does not know much about Barsoom, Tharks, Helium or the struggles of red men. During the three days' ride to the river Iss, and then Helium, he learns.

    Summary

    First awareness was the urge to cough; second that of bright light; third that wherever the pirates had dumped him he was in unfamiliar land with unknown predators and variables. The jungle grew to the sky, starting with a very few shorter shrubs on the sandy knoll he lay on. Exerting great effort, he hauled himself upright and saw what he had suspected to be: they had dumped him on the beach, just above the tideline, with nothing to his name and no indication of where he was or how long he’d been there.
