Better late than never, eh? Well, I was supposed to have done this update last month, but then life butted in and ruined all my fun... :P *sighs* What can you do?
Anyway, I have some wonderful fanworks to share with you today! :)
First up, I'd like to share with you "Introspection" by Kristina McCrady (in the Guest Authors section). If you haven't read any of Kristina's fanfics, you are missing out! She is a superb writer and tells an outstanding tale. Introspection is a personal favorite of mine. I hope you'll check it out!
Second on my list to share - the final 2 chapters of Lynne's beautiful and romantic holiday tale, "A Reason For Giving" are up for your perusal. You can find this story (and several others!) in the section of my website that is dedicated to Lynne's fanfics. This is one of my favorite holiday stories - and, FYI, Lynne actually wrote the poem herself. What a talented lady!! :)
Last, but never least, I want to share my all time favorite piece of fanart of Lance... It's "Office Boy" by Zejan (aka Lance in the Red Muse Boots ;-) ). Come check it out in the fanart section or on it's own special page (you can find a link on the Fan Works page). All those Space Explorers are hot, but there's just something about Lance that makes this Kitty purr. ;-)
Hugs to all!
Happy New Year! I can't believe how quickly 2015 zipped by... But I certainly hope that 2016 is a wonderful year for us all! :)
Okay, a small update today - but don't forget, good things come in small packages!
For your reading pleasure, there are 2 new chapters of the revised version of Lynne's beloved holiday fanfic, "A Reason For Giving" - make sure you check out all the love and laughter, the romantic tension and the holiday spirit, in this beautiful tale! And, as if *that's* not enough to get you reading, you can't miss out on a tipsy Nanny in a Santa suit! ;)
I feel so very lucky to share with you Caroline's 17th installment in her "School Days" series - "Lions Rise Above Pride" - I am honored that my dear friend, Caro, has allowed me to host her fanfic series on my website. I hope all of you will enjoy reading this installment as much as I have. Over and over again, I am absolutely enthralled with Caro's storytelling - she is a true master!
Caro, as always, beautifully done! This one brought tears to my eyes, both in sadness and in joy, I couldn't stop reading - I just had to know what was going to happen next.
Until next time! :)
So what's new today? Well, I'm glad you asked! ;-)
I've got so many new things for you that I don't know where to start, so I think I'll just pick a spot and hope I remember everything!!
Let's begin with... A few days ago via Twitter, @keithandallura (aka Miss Cubbie! :) ), asked me about the possibility of a Christmas page here on TLK. It hadn't even occurred to me until she mentioned it! I mean, Cubbie has this fantastic blog/shrine dedicated to all things Keith and Allura and already has a long list of beautiful K/A holiday themed fanworks - which you can find here! But it got me thinking - I also have other, non K/A winter/holiday themed fics on TLK...maybe I should create a list! And so, I offer you... Winter & Holiday Themed Fanworks here on TLK - yay! And, thank you for the suggestion, Cubbie! :)
Next up, We have new and updated fanfics! Woohoo!
Continuing her sweet and tender Christmas tale, KittyLynne has sent me 3 new chapters for "A Reason For Giving" - so hop on over to her section and check out chapters 10, 11, and 12!
The next installment of KittyCaro's epic saga, "School Days" is awaiting your perusal... But, I must warn you it is NSFW - and that is a very good thing! Make sure you grab some ice water and turn down the thermostat a few degrees, because this one is hot, hot, hot! Romantic, sensual, breathtaking, sexy - these are all words that come to mind when I think of "A Pride of Proud Lions".
And last but certainly not least, I am so excited to share with you 5 fanfics from Bellantara. Now, let me tell you, her fics may not be for everyone - some of her subject matter is dark - but she sure as heck can write! Here's the thing that struck me when I read her works - she made me feel real emotion, and that, my friends, takes talent. When a writer can reach a reader's heart, when they can evoke true feelings...I'm impressed. The other thing I absolutely love about her work - she shows no fear, she writes her story, her way. I have nothing but admiration and respect for that. You can find a few of her fics in the Guest Author's section on TLK, and be sure to check out her FF.Net account for many, many more of her works!
Finally, there's a little something I've been considering for some time, and I decided to just go for it! I've created a new section entitled "IMO..." and as you can guess, it's going to be my opinion on varying subjects. I've been a part of the Voltron fandom for a really long while - somewhere in the neighborhood of 17-18 years at this point in time. I've seen a lot of things, good and bad, and I thought I might be able to put some of that experience to good use by offering up some thoughts from time to time on a myriad of fandom related topics... So, if you'd like to check it out, it's listed under the "Home" tab on TLK and it's called IMO... Take it or leave it, it's just my opinion.
Wishing you love and hugs, and the most wonderful Holiday Season!
Boy oh boy do I have one heck of an update today! Lots to see and read in a wide variety of styles! :)
Let me please first address something... Recently I've had numerous emails asking about if I'm still working on and/or when I'm going to be updating or adding to my fanfic series "Just Allura." I promise I am hard at work on the next installment - the next part in my series is considerably longer than what I've posted so far and is taking more time to rewrite/edit. I also have numerous other projects that I'm working on right now - there's managing and updating this site, as well as keeping Hunk's Corner updated, and several other writing/art projects for both TLK and HC - and you never know what kind of mischief me and my pals are up to! ;)
Okay! On to the update!! Well, first off, I have several fanfic announcements! Let's start with KittyLynne's "A Ray of Hope" - freshly revised for your viewing pleasure! Next up, the newest installment of the "School Days" saga by KittyCaro - "Out of the Blue" picks up right where "With Friends Like You" left off... Hurry, you don't want to miss out on the action packed romantic adventure that awaits... *sighs* KC surely knows how to make your heart go pitter-patter over those space explorers and the princesses they love...
Now, we also have new fanfics in the Guest Author's Section!! Yay!! You will find a new fic by E.M Blaine - a sweet and touching tale of family, friendship and love in "Through a Brother's Eyes." And by HiroEB there are 3, (yes count them, 3!) wonderful fanfics - "Luminous" ; "Forgiveness" ; and "A Cruel World" - sweet, angsty, romantic, heart-breaking... a roller coaster of emotion, to be sure!
Thank you to all of the amazing authors who have honored me and my website by allowing their fantastic works to have a home here!! You are all such amazing talents, and I thank you!! :)
Finally... A brand new section - Fan Art!! Some by me, some by guests, some lovely gift art, come and see what beautiful art TLK is now hosting!! :) And a special thanks to HiroEB - she once had a website (back when there were lots and lots of Voltron fansites!!) and it was filled with her lovely artwork - sadly, like so many sites, her site faded away... :( Kindly, she has allowed TLK to be a host for her lovely artwork! :)
I hope you'll enjoy the update! :)
I almost forgot! I'm now on twitter - @LancesKitten
What I have for you today is a brand new fanfic by, well, me!
This shorter fic falls into my "Just Allura" fanfic series between "Lotor's Revenge" and "Mistakes and Misunderstandings" - and even though both of those fics were written so long ago, "Reflections" was written just this year. As I revise my "Just Allura" series, I find that there are lots of bits and pieces I missed the first time through - I'm giving everything a thorough edit, so I figure now's the time to get in there and fill in those blanks.
It's not KA per se, but it is KA friendly and does hint at their relationship.
Reflections... There are so many meanings for one word. Come and see the Voltron Force from a new perspective as an unexpected character reflects on events of the past, future, and present.
You can find "Reflections" in my (Shannon's) fanfic section. I hope you enjoy... :)
And, I can't forget - a *huge* shout-out to my beta-reader, KittyLynne! Without you, I'm not sure I'd get anything done! ;) *hugs*
I've been chatting with a really lovely person (shout out to Carly!) for the past few weeks - she made a comment that lead me to remember something I'd heard long ago.
"Even the villain is the hero in his own story."
Think about it.
So, what I want to share today is a fanfic that I personally found to be one of the best I've ever read. The writing is flawless, the characters are beautifully deep and multi-faceted, the story is fascinating and left me wanting more.
In the Guest Author section, you can find Carly's "Thaw" - go, read...and let me know if your heart was a little bit broken for Hagar - I know mine was.
So, for today's update, we have 3, that's right *3* new chapters from KittyLynne!! The first is chapter 9 from KL's epic, unique, and beloved fanfic Bonds of Love. The next 2 chapters are numbers 8 and 9 from A Reason For Giving - KL's heartwarming winter fanfic... Woo-hoo it's Christmas in July! ;) You know, I'm thinking the best way to summErize (yes, that pun's for *you*!) KL's most recent chapters is this... Have you ever heard Donna Summer's "Hot Stuff" *giggles* yeah... ;) You can find these new chapters in Lynne's fanfiction section! :)
I also have KittyCaro's next installment of School Days! Part XIV is called "With Friends Like You" and of course can be found in Caroline's fanfiction section! As always, Caro's writing is a roller coaster of emotions... For those of us who (not-so) secretly adore Lotor (*KittyShan waves her arms around* Me! That's me!), KC gives us some moments where you almost hope he gets a happy ending (heh, pun intended! ;) )... But then that dastardly Prince of Doom goes and does such villainous and loathsome things... Poor Romelle. Go and read, but be sure to grab a tissue (and a fan! ;) ) Because, there's one thing that Caro *never* does, and that's disappoint her readers!
Hope you enjoy - and stay tuned... It won't be long and I'll have even more new content just for you! :)
Well, well, well... I have something very special to share today! The one and only SunshineLeo (Dawn) has been so very kind to allow me to host her fantastic fanfic, "Isn't it Tweet" - I can't tell you how very honored I am to be able to have such a great story here on TLK! :) Dawn is a greatly talented writer, and I really have enjoyed reading her fics. This one in particular caught my attention because it's so uniquely different!
Please head over to the "Guest Fanfics" section and read "Isn't it Tweet" - you won't be sorry - it's sweet, and funny, and of course, it's K&A!!
And, Dawn, thank you again for allowing me to showcase your fantastic tale!! *hugs*
Oh! And after you read Dawn's fic, check out the new mini-bios on the Kitties fanfic pages! Lots of fun and love to be had right there!! :)
Okay, so today, I have one fanfic I've uploaded. It's part of my "Just Allura" story arc and you can find it in my (Shannon's) fanfic section... It's called "Lotor's Revenge" - and you may need a tissue or two... I hope you enjoy, and keep in mind, we all stumble on our paths - that doesn't mean it's the end of the journey. I'm already hard at work finishing the next fic, so hang in there!! :)
