FIC: kraken bits

The [community profile] whitedwarfrabbithole fics are live! [archiveofourown.org profile] Sunchales wrote me Soap and Squid, a story set in the Botanical Gardens in Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun universe. If you like the books, you should check out the fic. It is very creepy, as the Botanical Gardens should be.

And since there's no anon period, I can tell you about my fic as well, which is written for China Mieville's The Scar. I've always wanted to write fic for this book, although Tanner/Shekel was not what I ever expected to write. I got to write canon tentacles, though! In fact I amused my Twitter timeline quite a bit a couple of weeks ago, angsting over the porn parts.

It turns out this is in fact the first m/m I've ever written for a fictional canon. I'm not sure quite how that happened, but there you are.

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Bas Lag - China Miéville
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Tanner Sack/Shekel
Characters: Tanner Sack, Shekel
Additional Tags: Tentacles, First Time, Age Difference, Body Image, body shame
Summary:

Imprisoned, Remade, free now and alone but for his work mates and for Shekel, who liked him – simply and easily, Tanner had thought, though the view was cloudier now. Who’d be surprised at an old invert wanting something like desire turned his way again, after all that?

I love Mieville's stuff, but I've yet to get to the Bas-Lag novels. Must address.

I think The Scar is very possibly my favorite of his novels, although my feelings about the other two Bas-Lag novels are a little more mixed. But I am always happy to talk about him and his stuff - if you ever want to talk about Bas-Lag, feel free to drop back in!
