I have a couple of projects, in two new fandoms (at least for me writing wise) in the works, both of which are a bit different than what I've done before. The first is an Alpha/Beta/Omega action adventure romance for BBC's Merlin. The story length is planned at 50K and since this will be the first time writing an A/B/O, I'll be posting it as a WIP on The Wild Hare Project. The second project is in the Stargate Atlantis fandom, in which I've been a long time reader (and lurker). I'll be participating in the July 2017 Rough Trade Writing Challenge: Battle of the Five Fandoms hosted by Keira Marcos with this project. The challenge is to write in episode format for one of the five television series listed. Each episode is suppose to be a short story 5-15K in length. Writing in an episode format will be quite different to what I’m use to. The series for The Descendant is currently being plotted as a ten episode series and I’m going to shoot for on average 10K per episode.

I'm a bit trepidatious about writing both projects, but that is the point in challenging yourself and doing something different. I love both fandoms and both bunnies bit me in the behind last year and have been on my mind ever since since.

Best, The Nut.

I’m contemplating using my short ficlet, Legacy, as a jumping off point for an A/B/O Merlin (Canon Era) Novella. I’ve never written A/B/O Dynamics, and do find many things about the trope problematic. Mainly, the elements of rape (non-consent and forced seduction is rape IMO), and to a lesser extent descriptive heat preparation or copious amounts of semen (and that’s putting it delicately *clears throat*).

I’ll have to do some world building to avoid the aspects of the trope I inherently don’t like.

Set Season Four Post – The Darkest Hour

Initial Premise:

A visiting noble shows a sexual interest in Merlin. Merlin is not only hiding the fact he’s a Warlock, he’s also hiding the fact he’s an Omega Male. Omega Males were thought to be extinct. Merlin uses a tincture to suppress his scent and pass for a normal man.
