[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....

[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.

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.

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.

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.
