Fic: Battlelines, Part Fifteen: Family Values

So, back to my most egregiously IP WIP! I have been trying to get back into this one ever since I finished Protect and Survive, but have found myself butting my head up against that brick wall again; so, I took a step back and approached it from a slightly different angle. In this part, Bambera is reminded that the values of the people who live in the Thirteen Worlds are a little different from her own, even those of "good guys" like Ancelyn. And a bit of setup for some plot yet to come, involving yet more original characters...

The recent debate over warnings has made me seriously consider what I'm writing and what effect it could have on other people, so I guess I need to say that in this part a bit of war crimes type violence and the sort of sexual violence that goes with it is at least implied if not directly shown, so beware. I don't know if I'm being overly cautious here, but God knows I don't want to cause anybody any real life distress if I can help it.

Fic: Battlelines, Part 15.

So, we finally get to see something of the mysterious Melehan and Melou that we have previously heard so much about, and the Doctor finally makes an appearance in the story. Sort of. It doesn't look like one of his more successful adventures, anyway. I also try to address one issue a lot of people have with Battlefield; namely that there is no place for magic in Doctor Who. Oh, and some medieval-type debauchery and sexism, which I hope doesn't offend too greatly; these are medieval folk we're talking about, though. And be warned: Here Be Dragons:

Fic: Battlelines, Part 14

So, the next gripping part! Hopefully, this is the end of the dry talky stuff for now; I can't promise any outright action, or indeed dragons, just yet, but hopefully from here on in stuff will start _happening_ again. Hopefully. :D Some Bambera and Ancelyn for this part, and indeed some Bambera/Ancelyn, for those as likes that sort of thing... My understanding of how medieval swordfighting works is based on watching those arms and armour type programmes on the History Channel and the like and therefore may not be the most accurate; don't try it at home, kids!

Fic: Battlelines, Part 13

Well, I suppose it's like buses; you wait ages for one, and then three come along at once... I've been on a bit of a roll with this one, but a frustrating roll; I've written enough for about three new chapters since the weekend, but then had a bit of a crisis of confidence and have gone back to rework it all, ending up with this (for now):

www.whofic.com/viewstory.php

It seems to be taking me an awful lot of words to get through all of this set up without any meaningful plot or action seeming to take place. I sort of feel that I need to go through all of this stuff in order to establish the setting and so what happens when the action starts makes at least a bit of sense. Your mileage, as they say, may vary; maybe I need an editor! So, the Brig gets shown round the castle, shares some thoughts with some of the supporting cast, and starts to hatch his plan...

Fic: Battlelines, Part 12

As unlikely as it may seem, it is nevertheless true; two chapters in one day!

In the latest installment, not much happens, once again, but we do get more of a glimpse of the Thirteen Worlds and some of their inhabitants, and a bit of a look at the amazing castle of Camelot itself ("On second thoughts, let us not go to Camelot - 'tis a silly place."). Mercenaries, I might add, were as important to medieval warfare as they seem to be to most Eric Saward Who stories... Of course, Doctor Who and its associated copyrights do not belong to me but rather to the BBC and their original creators.

Anyway:

Fic: Battlelines, Part 11

Somehow, I managed to resist the urge to draw any more fanart and do some writing instead (I assure you, this represents a non-trivial feat of willpower for me in my current procrastinating state!). So, the Brig's finally in the Thirteen Worlds, but it's still business as usual; talking about the UN and stuff. I hope it's not getting boring or repetitive for anybody. As always, Doctor Who and its accoutrements in no way belong to me, but rather to the BBC and their individual creators.
