Title: Adventus VII: Traditions
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- Superboy v3
Warnings: holiday fluff, one-sided Serling Roquette/Jim Harper (Guardian)
Prompt/Fill: "Mistletoe" from the Christmas Advent Prompts list.
Note: This is a side-story that doesn't deal with Kon/Von, but it takes place in the same universe (and the same Christmas season as "Adventus II")
Word Count: 1238
Summary: Serling makes a bit of a fool of herself, and Jim is oblivious. It's practically tradition at this point.
Word of the Day: velleity, noun:
1. Volition in its weakest form.
2. A mere wish, unaccompanied by an effort to obtain it.

Traditions
Have you come across the word velleity? A nice Thomistic ring to it. Volition at its lowest ebb. A small thing, a wish, a tendency. If you're low-willed, you see, you end up living in the shallowest turns and bends of your own preoccupations.
-- Don DeLillo


There are some truly time-honored traditions, especially around Christmas time. These traditions carry reminders of happier times, of childhood and family -- renewing aware of Christmas as a time to strive for peace and goodwill.

The office Christmas party, by contrast, is not one such tradition. Read more... )

Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- mostly Superboy v3 and Young Justice v1

Title: Adventus I: Match and the Musical Mystery
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- mostly Superboy v3 and references to Superboy and the Ravers v1 #5
Warnings: mild language, holiday fluff
Prompt/Fill: "Caroling" from the Christmas Advent Prompts list.
Note: "The Times" means the Times Supermarket, a chain headquartered in Honolulu. There are 25 stores spread throughout the islands.
Word Count: 855
Summary: Match is being stalked!
Word of the Day: guff, noun:
1. Empty or foolish talk; nonsense.
2. Insolent talk.

Timeline Note: Superboy's first birthday is shown in "Superboy v3 Annual #2" (1995). The Christmas shown in "Superboy and the Ravers #5" (1997) is assumed to be his second Christmas, because I think the Metropolis Kid debuted in the summertime? I'm not 100% certain.

Soon after the events of Ravers #6, Superboy is kidnapped by the Agenda (Superboy v3 #34-36) and Match is created. So Match's first Christmas takes place before his first birthday -- timelinewise, he was likely created some time in January.

Title: Dissolution I
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- this references an event in "Superboy and the Ravers" but only in passing, and fills in time between Match's debut storyline and 'Meltdown'.
Warnings: mild language, bb!clones being adorable
Prompt/Fill: Any, any, this is exponentially worse
Word Count: 4262
Summary: It's a clone thing, and a family thing.
Word of the Day: hieratic, adjective: 1. Highly restrained or severe in emotional import: Some of the more hieratic sculptures leave the viewer curiously unmoved.

Note: I'm writing this so I can write you "Adventus"; I'm cutting it in two because the second half is fighting being written. XD Chronologically, this is the second story in the "Fortress!verse" AU.

"When brothers agree, no fortress is so strong as their common life.”
-- Antisthenes


Reactionary
First story -- a very short ficlet detailing the actions that diverge from canon

Dissolution I
Second story -- currently a WIP, planned to be a two/three part story showing this AU's version of 'Meltdown'

[There will be other stories in this timeframe between "Dissolution" and M3, at some later point. Basically the #40s of Superboy v3 and the end of Superboy and Ravers. Match's first girlfriend, mentioned in stories that take place later, starts dating him somewhere in this timeframe, I think.]

Match and the Musical Mystery
As of now, chronologically the 3rd story. Takes place in December, roughly nine months after "Dissolution".

Better (or Worse) Than Chewing Gum
Takes place in the same December as "Match and the Musical Mystery" -- a very short scene.

Misfire
Roxy and Match have a friendly moment after a setback.

[There's a big gap here of about a year, which covers some non-canon adventures (which take the place of the first Wild Lands adventure in canon) and the 'Sins of Youth' storyline.]

[Superboy #75-93 is also covered here, which includes 'Our Worlds at War' and 'Last Laugh']

Charitable Contributions
A November-ish story, taking place just before Superboy #94

Warmth
This takes place just about two years after "Reactionary" and assumes that Superboy v3 #94-100 covers a timeframe from about November to mid-March.

Traditions
A Serling Roquette side-ficlet. Concurrent with "Warmth".

An Unexpected Guest
WIP -- the same December as "Warmth"
