    Summary

    Read bottom for real notes.

    Multiple chapters are yet to come.

    The truth has been exposed. A new gang of Gelfling will have the quest upon their hands, a new change, a new age, the Age of Resistance. Rian, Gurjin, And Kable(members of the guard) will team up and alert the following ten clans of the Skeksis crimes. Along with that, challenging moments, new friends and perhaps old friends… and a mixture of possibly Love relationships. Other influential Gelfling tied to this resistance are Deet and Amri of grot, Brea of Vapra, Chidobe of Ub’Jan, Naia of Drenchen, Toolah of Christen, and Malia of Dousan, and of course Noble Hup. These Gelfling or group…that has yet to come, will change their lives and many other lives on thra.

    I will make this a series, not just a short ten chapter fan fic.

    Summary

    "It started how all things start, with skekSil the Lord Chamberlain minding everyone's business but his own....the Chamberlain had no reason to care. Nevertheless, he did care, even if only out of impartial curiosity and a boredom with the monotony of life in the castle of the Crystal. Even before he laid eyes on him, the enigmatic Fenth piqued skekSil's interest. Why would Fenth rouse the Sifan crowd to split from the other Clans?...the secession movement he instigated, this could not easily be explained by a craving for power. Fenth wasn't even the Sifan Maudra; he has very little to gain from this...Fenth's charisma was admirable and his tactics were shrewd...But skekSil never bothers to pull schemes if he has nothing to gain from them; his machinations take effort and careful planning. Therefore, the Chamberlain reasons that Fenth almost definitely has a purpose for this. SkekSil is going to sate his curiosity about said purpose.
    The best way to do so would be to examine the source directly, to make the long trip to Cera-Na."

    Summary

    Before Emperor skekSo became accepting of skeklings in his kingdom, of the dream of an expansive race serving under him, he made the mistake of shoving away his then-partner skekSil and their unborn skekling. skekSil does not forget this and raises their child with the intent to seize the throne for him.

    From thirteen trine and onward, skekZi was certain that doing what was best for his mother was all that mattered. His half-brother, Prince skekLarei, shows him things that his mother could not. skekZi is left in a conundrum that he couldn't begin imagining--is following his mother what he wants? Or what his mother wants?

    Summary

    TahTao did it. He got them home. Not all of them, but at least those he could save. Thra was safe, the Gelfling were free, their inner darkness was crushed...right? They did good. This was the correct action.

    But TahTao has his doubts. The past won't stop haunting him. The isolation from those he'd been trapped with for thousands of trine--years, it was years now--was destroying him. This was supposed to be good, but why did he hate it so much? Why did he want to go back?

    Summary

    Miko of the Stonewood clan cannot recall how she ended up in this isolated hut on the edge of a forested cliff by the Silver Sea. Escape is impossible. Dark beasts lurk in the forest to impede her path and a strange ship sails the sea along the horizon. Nobody is coming.

    Until a mysterious egg is left by one of the beasts. It hatches into two of the strangest things that Miko has ever seen--a baby version of the Lords of the Crystal, a Skeksis, and a miniature version of a creature she thought was only legend, a Mystic. She finds herself in over her head with the antics of this skekling and urling...until more urlings and skeklings begin appearing.

    Where are they coming from? And why to her, of all Gelfling?

    Summary

    Just me trying to do NaNoWriMo (National Novel/November Writing Month) but with Dark Crystal drabbles. Most of these will be random. Most will include my many OCs. I include the Henson Creature Shop challenge skeks and the abandoned/retconned manga skeks as canon. All Lachs are valid and will be specified in notes as to which one is being used.

    So follow me on this dumb Skeksis and urRu adventure this month! And maybe beyond. We'll see.

    UPDATE: Yeah, we're going beyond now. This is now just a random drabble collection from my Discord writings. Some of these may get expanded into their own full stories later. Mostly Skeksis because...Skeksis are cooler.

    Summary

    Just a collection of random events within the Crystal Castle from the viewpoint of my Skeksis OC, skekTah the Schemer.

    No real linearity. Mostly just drabbles of various things to explore the Dark Crystal world. May contain various AUs and such.

    He's the Note-Taker up until roughly 600 trine into the Skeksis reign. After that, when I have the Gelfling Gathering set in my mind, he's the Schemer. Just for those that get confused by his title change between drabbles.

    Summary

    A side-story to VotSatE that takes place during the movie, so this is post-VotSatE.

    skekTah witnesses Emperor skekSo's death and the ensuing throne challenge between skekSil and skekUng, which skekZok bows out of. Feeling betrayed by his alliance and totally alone in the castle, skekTah chooses to leave Skarith in order to protect himself from the new Emperor's hatred of him and the inevitable banishment he would gain. This guides him on a journey that crosses Thra and back again as he searches for his purpose...

    Summary

    Emperor skekSo gives skekTah frightening news involving something the Schemer didn't think possible--Skeksis pregnancy. Love is in the air, Skeksis are pairing off, and children are on the way. Of course, skekTah must be the odd one in this...

    AU to VotSatE where none of the Skeksis died. Takes place just after the Gelfling Gathering, so past the 600 trine mark in my canon.
