I adore your most recent story! You have such an intricate, precise way of describing things while still moving a story forward. I was completely enthralled with your writing before I even become a Tumblr user (on Ao3). Just a question: what is "Rumbelle War?" (~justrumbelledearie)


Aww, thank you! *blushes*

Ah, the rumbelle war, I mostly used that tag because it felt so much like a fic from around that time, before season 1 ended and we knew Rumbelle would be reunited. It was essentially a period of time that lasted about six months, from Skin Deep to around the season 2 opener, when a load of writers (most of whom sadly do not write rumbelle fic much anymore) basically set about writing the worst angst imagineable to kill their fellow shippers. We’d then have waves of fluff and smut as balance, before hostilities resume. I count myself among the veterans and unashamedly miss that time, as well as many of my former comrades who I used to talk to daily, whom I now rarely speak to.

Ficlet: Stranger Than Sympathy

Iambicdearie prompted: "The quality of mercy is not strained./ It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven/ upon the place beneath."

Rumpelstiltskin could be merciful.

Rarely, and often to his detriment, but sometimes it was no bad thing to cause confusion among one’s enemies. He was merciful when it cost him nothing, and gained him everything. He was merciful, when mercy was no more than negligence.

Which would explain why I’m spending the afternoon in a coffee shop with free wi-fi (so much warmer than my room, tbh) writing Rumpelstiltskin being self-loathing and Belle being an oblivious badass bookworm.

Operation Make All The Rumbellers Cry is back people.

I stand firmly in the side of the medics (except when writing faux incest cause that shit’s painful). I hope many will too.

See, I started out as a medic. Then I met the Tumblr fandom. And it was downhill from there. TONIGHT WE FIGHT.

(also, if you want to blame someone for my descent into angst, blame the Troll. She’s proud of it too >.>)

Angsty fanfic at dawn…

Suddenly Henry’s armory doesn’t seem as much of a joke.

I’m rubbing my hands together in glee.

Can artists join the battle? Cause I’m up for this.

Oh course, daring.  This, for example, is one of the most painful things ever.

There’s a whole section for artists, called the Art Militia.

Here is where we store war efforts.

That okay with everyone?

Fic: Older and Far Away (1/?)

Fic: Older and Far Away (1/?)
Rating: R, I guess
Summary: Belle was not cursed, and lived twenty-eight years while Storybrooke slept. The night Emma Swan comes to town, she finds her way back too.

A/N: The first part of this was already posted a while ago, but since I put the first three parts I wrote together (and I don’t know how many people could even find that first part) I’ve added it on here. This is what happens when I have a bad night. This is also a Rumbelle War post.

—-

Belle, somehow, had avoided the Curse.



She doesn’t know how, and assumes it was the Queen’s wards around her prison cell that kept all of the magic, even the darkest and most powerful of all from touching her.



She lived twenty-eight years, in this land without magic.

Fic: Not A Request

Title: Not A Request
Rating: G
Summary: “If she doesn’t eat with me, then she doesn’t eat at all” - Rumpelstiltskin demands that his new caretaker dine with him every night. Belle does not take commands well.

Inspired by the part in both the Disney and Robin McKinley retellings of the Beauty and the Beast story, where the Beast demands they together every night, and Belle initially refuses. More a ficlet than a full fic, but I rather like it.

"Oh, and one last thing, dearie!"


He had returned: she had been calling for what felt like hours, desperate for a response from her new captor (she’d hoped employer, perhaps companion, but no, captor is the word). She’d been certain that she had been left to waste in this dark, dank little place, forgotten and alone.

"What?" she asked, holding back the lump in her throat. She would not give him the satisfaction of breaking her, of forcing tears from her eyes or sobs from her chest.

"You will dine with me, every night. This is not a request."

Can you please explain the Rumbelle war?

Anonymous

The Rumbelle War was started when a load of writers (marchionessofblackadder, andachippedcup, valerieparker, accio-firewhiskey and cyprith) decided that they would like to use their powers of Rumbelle angst writing to emotionally destroy each other and all the other Rumbellers. This was in February, soon after the episode aired. The War Council was formed.

This became known as the Rumbelle War. It then spread into fluff, and then smut, in stages. It has a blog where any and all soldiers in the war (all fanficcers, fanartists, fanvidders ect) can post and share links to their work, and still hosts challenges (special attacks) and prompts.

We have an art militia for fanartists, and a dirty brigade for smut writers (which I lead, because I’m a smut gremlin and that’s how I roll) as well as a medic station for fluff. The rumbelle tunnel is what we call it when many people say I’LL BE IN MY BUNK. The bunks are connected via blanket tunnels.

The War Council has grown and changed. Cyprith left, and I (rufeepeach) and Fyre (amuseoffyre) joined. It has valoscope as its notary and iambicdearie as its secretary.

Sometimes someone says something silly like “I miss the war” or “so glad the war ended” and then a War Council member (usually Marchie or Fyre) will say “IT NEVER ENDED AND HERE’S A NUKE BITCHES” and we get another angst wave.

Anyone wish to add to this explanation? I probably missed something.

Reporting for duty!

New recruit, Private 1st Class CrankNerdGirl, signing in.  Hoping to have one general angst (not related to today’s tweet) and one porn of the photo per Marquesa’s request before the day is done.  We shall see.  And… Gepardo… I am so, SO sorry.   I’m working on it.  Really-really. It’s interesting, but getting a tad plotty.

I’m not sure my rank, but I also have gotten aan angsty smut chapter out today.  I hope that is sufficient, sir.  I hope to have the first chapter of nun!Belle out as well.

Shall we call everyone Private until further notice? LOL LIKE WE HAVE RANKINGS.

I approve of these things. Yes. Good.

You know what? Screw it.

bottledspirits:

Rumbelle writers, I challenge you to write the most angst-ridden story you possibly can. One shots, ficlets, longer stories - it’s all fair game. Bring the feels. 

Done. It’s called the War. And if you’re still going after Marchie’s Karner Blue, then… well you’re better than I am XD
