Fic authors and readers - the Goldenlake Fanfiction Decathlon is now on!

The Goldenlake Decathlon is a super fun fanfiction challenge where authors attempt to complete 10 fic-events (5 track events and 5 field events) for a chosen couple or character during May. Authors stake their claim on a couple or character, challenge themselves to finish all 10 events, and cheer each other on while doing it!

Guidelines can be found here. It's a ton of fun - and the Decathlon fic is awesome :)

I'm your new studly mod here in LJ land, hand-picked to tend to all your Goldenlake needs! If you're alarmed by my sudden appearance, fear not! It is likely we've rubbed elbows before back on the Great Motherboard, where you can find me as Grifftastical.

I'll be putting up some reminders for exciting holiday events over the next few days. I hope you'll all have time to participate!

Feel free to leave me questions in the comments or shoot me a PM if you'd prefer,

Much love!

The "most wonderful time of the year" is drawing close - and that means Ficmas over at Fief Goldenlake!

What is Ficmas?

A Tamora Pierce-based fanfiction 'Secret Santa' or 'exchange', where you sign up to write fic for another person, and receive a fic written for you, all in the holiday spirit. You'll give us a short list of what kind of fic you'd like, and we'll take it from there.

Want to know more? The Guidelines are all listed here.

Our sign-ups sheet is here.

Hope to see you joining in!

Title: I'll Come For You - A Kel/Lalasa Collection
Author: [info]pristineungift
Claimed Pairing: Keladry/Lalasa
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Femslash; Fantasy Violence.
Summary: This is a series of interconnected drabbles I did for the Goldenlake Decathlon Challenge. You claimed a couple or a character, and then wrote ten pieces about them, with each piece having to meet a specific prompt and/or wordcount. I chose Keladry of Mindelan and Lalasa Isran, because as far as I'm concerned they're destined to be together. Unfortunately, I only made it halfway through the Decathlon. I may come back and pick up this series one day, but for now I'm calling it complete. Kel returns to Corus to find things are exactly as she left
them, and yet completely different. Kel/Lalasa.

The site aims to bring all the Goldenlake projects under the one domain and includes the Goldenlake Forum, The King's Own Fanfiction Archive, the Podfic Archive and a bunch of other neat projects. Several projects are still under construction and will be up in coming weeks.

Feedback and suggestions can be left in this forum: http://fiefgoldenlake.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=webpage :)
