[personal profile] ashkitty suggested Dark Is Rising fic to the prompt The time Bran got involved with Cymdeithas yr Iaith. This is definitely set in the Eirias Triad universe, in the very early 1980s, not long after the events of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau. In which one of Cymdeithas yr Iaith's most promising young leaders is planning a protest over Westminster's foot-dragging approach to Welsh-language television broadcasting....

Fandom: The Dark Is Rising
Rating: U
Summary: When Will, Bran, and the Drews first meet up with John and Blodwen Rowlands in Tywyn, there's one small matter that needs to be settled before they go their separate ways. A missing scene, set during Silver on the Tree.
Disclaimer: All original works are copyright of their respective owners; I lay claim only to this particular story.
Notes: I have had this missing scene in mind for several years now, though it has gone through several iterations in that time. Incorporates story text and spoilers for all of Silver on the Tree. (Also on AO3.)

[personal profile] ashkitty requested a short Eirias Triad piece in response to the result of the 2011 Wales referendum, and this article in particular provided a gem of an idea, which turned into a rather fluffy ficlet.

Disclaimer: All original works are copyright of their respective owners; I lay claim only to this particular story.
Notes: This story is an expansion of a short piece I wrote several years ago, a scene that I have always wanted to flesh out beyond the 100-word limit imposed by a drabble. It is really only the prelude to a much longer story, one that I hope to write out fully one day, but for now I hope this will suffice.

A note of caution: This story describes an incident of corporal punishment of a child -- not in particularly graphic detail, but enough to require a brief warning all the same.

Summary: Friendships, like reservoirs, are often shaped by what lies well below the surface. But even after thirty years of friendship, Will Stanton is not entirely prepared to find some unexpected depths.
Disclaimer: All original works are copyright of their respective owners; I lay claim only to this particular story.
Notes: Like any good piece of political fiction, this story has its origins in a kernel of truth. On 19 October 2005, the Liverpool City Council did in fact issue an apology for the flooding of the Tryweryn valley, an act that was instrumental in building support for Plaid Cymru as a Welsh nationalist political party and for Welsh devolution in general. I hope that I have changed or obscured sufficient details -- including Bran's constituency and ministerial office -- to avoid giving any offence. Any factual errors in this fictional world, however inadvertently introduced, are entirely my own.

A certain incredibly awesome thing was written for me, based on the characters of Merriman Lyon and Kaylee Frye from the Milliways RPG community. I do not consider this response to be anywhere near as awesome as the original thing -- but it is a response nonetheless.

Notes: Originally written for [personal profile] agonistes, who requested a meeting between Merriman Lyon and Albus Dumbledore -- 'preferably silly', as she said. I attempted to write silly, but did not exactly succeed...yet I rather like how it turned out.

Disclaimer: All original works are copyright of their respective owners; I lay claim only to this particular story.
Notes: This story is the result of an attempt to put a sudden mental image into words: Bran and Will, sitting together (awkwardly) in a cramped dormitory room that is awash in political campaign literature. Set in the early 1980s, and the second part of the Eirias Triad.

Notes: Originally, this was planned as a 100-word response to the [livejournal.com profile] darkisrising100 challenge about 'bad habits'. Somehow it became 750 words and turned into something very different altogether, and eventually became the first story in the Eirias Triad.

Notes: I'm fond of writing missing scenes, and this one in particular seemed to be important to a book that ended on a satisfying but not entirely 'complete' note (at least in my mind). So this is how I imagine that The Grey King really ends.
