Many thanks to my wonderful beta Kangeiko!

My other contribution to [livejournal.com profile] babylon5_love was something different altogether: for once, I made something that wasn't fic or something fanarty/crafty, but took a chance on music instead! Not an original song, but I did set new, B5-themed lyrics to an existing song, and recorded my own version of it to a karaoke track (as I lack the needed skill on acoustic guitar, woe). I ended up making a Londo and G'Kar version of "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's. The title, unsurprisingly, is "Hey There, Mollari", and the song is basically G'Kar writing a letter to Emperor Londo while traveling with Lyta. (The sound quality isn't great, but I did my best with the tools I had.) Hope you enjoy!

Hey There, Mollari: listen or download on Soundcloud.

Currently [livejournal.com profile] ruuger is hosting the annual Babylon 5 Love Month on livejournal: a month-long fannish celebration of all things related to B5 and Crusade! A bunch of lovely things have been posted already, with many more to follow, so don't forget to stop by [livejournal.com profile] babylon5_love and have a look if you'd like to join in the squee. 

This year I made two contributions, one of them a short Londo/Timov missing scene fic. I'd actually been planning on writing smut for this pairing, but the characters just kept talking and talking and refused to shut up - which, knowing it's Londo and Timov we're talking about, honestly shouldn't have surprised me - so I didn't actually reach the smut part, though I might remedy that in the future. Hope you enjoy this nonetheless!

So at one point during the past weeks I wrote this little snippet at the request of a tumblr friend, after which we got to discussing Londo’s issues with choking and asphyxiation and she pointed out that there should be Londo/G’Kar breathplay fic because omg yes, painful and screwed up and perfect. And I agreed wholeheartedly, and one thing led to another and… well, I wrote the thing! :) And I can honestly say it's both the hottest and one of the darkest things I ever wrote, and somehow I’m irrationally proud of it, so... I hope you’ll all enjoy it. *beams*

So this is the last “real” chapter, with only an epilogue to follow and one final plot point to resolve, and it feels… so very strange. I still need to write the epilogue itself, which I’ll do in the next couple of days; by that time I’ll hopefully have gathered my thoughts about this story and how intense writing it has been for me. (In one word: very. *nervous chuckle*). In the meantime, I hope you’ll all enjoy this chapter, which brings the story back to our dear and brave Vir.

Title: Though I Walk Through the Valley (14/15)
Fandom: Babylon 5
Category/Rating: gen-ish (with some background pairings), PG-13
Story summary: What really happened during those sixteen long years in which Londo waited for the prophecies to come true? A multi-chapter story, intended to bridge the gap between Londo’s ascension to the throne and Centauri Prime’s eventual liberation from the Drakh.

(In which Vir learns the truth and, for once, doesn’t wait for the fight to come to him.)

Even though this isn't the last chapter yet, it almost feels like it is, because so much happens in this one. And that's only the abridged version - if I'd put everything in this chapter that I originally wanted to, I'm pretty sure I'd have been writing forever. That said, I hope I didn’t rush things too much; at one point, it felt like I was just racing from plot point to plot point trying to tie it all up without losing momentum, and I’m still not quite sure if I managed to avoid that trap. Also, because I was fretting so much about not turning this chapter into a huge melodrama, I might have overcompensated and made it too clinical instead. But chances are if I’d have gone for more drama, I would have ended up being just as worried that I took it too far, because that's me as well. :)

Anyway, after this chapter there’s one more, and then an epilogue, but I have good hopes (fingers crossed) that, now the toughest bit is done, it’s just gonna be riding the rollercoaster all the way down!

Aaannd we're here with a new installment of our Centauri Prime saga.

This chapter got away from me a little - at first, I had a hard time getting into the flow of writing it, and then once I did I couldn't make myself stop. But anyway, this is where the plot slowly starts to thicken, and for the first time while writing this story I really felt that storyteller's thrill of seeing some of the pieces begin to come together. I have everything plotted out pretty tightly, in the sense that I have a decent idea of what should happen in each chapter, who will be the narrator, when certain characters will have to do certain things to serve the plot and how to get them into a position where they can do it. I've never written longfic before so this is a whole new experience for me, but I'm amazed at how satisfying I'm finding it. Exhausting too - I'm going to sleep and waking up with this story - but so far it's been very much worth it. I also think I've passed the halfway mark where the number of chapters, and I'm loving that nervous thrill of hoping I can get it all tied together. *crosses fingers it will stay that way*

Anyway, hope you all enjoy this! By the way, the chapter after this one will be Londo again, for anyone who wonders. :)
