Fest Announcement: Sutcliff Swap 2013

The signups for the 2013 Sutcliff Swap Fanwork Exchange will open April 8! We had a great turnout last year and hope this year will be even better.


Sutcliff Swap is a multifandom exchange for canon-era fanfiction and fanart based on the childrens' and adult novels and short stories of British historical fiction author Rosemary Sutcliff.

Beyond the Western Sea icons

Firstly, there is a commentfic meme on the livejournal community. I know it looks dead, but it doesn't have to be.

Secondly, here are some Beyond the Western Sea icons.

1. 2. 3.Bridy was not sure she knew what happy meant )

Like the Tide by templemarker [The Eagle, Marcus/Esca, NC17]

Like the Tide
by templemarker

Notes: First begun as a reponse to a prompt in [livejournal.com profile] riventhorn's Happy Gay Farmers post last month, "a storm's coming." With grateful thanks to [personal profile] samjohnsson for uber beta skills.

It was as if Esca knew Marcus was looking at him, as if he bent and flexed with purpose to distract Marcus from his work and draw Marcus' focus to the slope of Esca's back, the spray of freckles across his shoulder. Marcus knew every part of him, from the frantic exploration atop a horse blanket in the hills of the North to the slow, fire-drenched coupling of their first days in their bothy, on their land, their home.

Available on livejournal, dreamwidth, and my archive.

Fanfic recs: The Eagle, American Girls, Sorcery and Cecelia, Mairelon the Magician, Gemma Doyle

Okay, I wanted to post something in this community for Three Weeks for Dreamwidth, but I don't have time for any of the meta posts in my head. So recs are what you get: 21 for A Great and Terrible Beauty, mostly Felicity/Gemma and Felicity/Pippa; 11 for The Eagle of the Ninth; 4 for The Winter Prince; 6 for American Girls; and 7 for Sorcery and Cecelia and Mairelon the Magician.Read more... )

Lady Grace icons

I really like this set of covers. Unfortunately it looks like only the first six mysteries were published in America. Feel free to use as bases.
