I've begun posting "Starwort" to fkfic-l, which means it's really, truly done. The list is still Broadway. ;-) This incarnation of Fleur has made me think about those versions of the character that I've written so far, and those I have yet to try. Of course references to Nick's sister pop up in most of my fanfiction, but in these pieces, she's present in her own voice:
|1998||"Whence the Truce"||Ghost Fleur|
|1996||"Billets Doux"||Epistolary Fleur|
So what's next? Not that my next story will necessarily feature Fleur, but I think I will not go seven years between again, either. I have a small idea for a story with Ghost Fleur and Alyssa. And I have ideas bursting out my ears for a parallel Vampire Fleur universe (not the same as in "Fireweed"), one of which I had the first glimpse in '96, but which never went anywhere past the first few chapters, because I thought of it as a novel I could never get all the way around (the murder mystery scenario is the hang-up). I've recently come to think of it as a universe instead, and it has exploded like a seed pod. I still need a solid cop-plot for the central present-day structure of the original story, though.
