Summary:



“To serve the king is to sit under the Dragon’s claw.”

Captain Wei Shun's offer of marriage to Cheng Lan was humiliatingly rejected in front of all members of the royal court. That was ten years ago. Now, the king has given a newly victorious General Wei Shun a special reward for his military service - a slave named Cheng Lan. Lan was born to be a high ranking scholar-official within the king's court. When accusations of treason destroy his family and he is reduced to slavery, his last hope is a childhood friend who's love he once scorned.

Shun's success and popularity has seen him more than one jealous rival in court. The events that lead to Lan's family's arrest and execution are fast catching up with him. They will need to negotiate the treachery of the royal court together - if they are to survive.

Here's a roundup of the online fiction and e-books that I've brought out since September 2013. I write original slash, original gen, and original het. My latest roundup is strongest in prisonfic and servantfic, but there are a few other items too. Here's my official bio:

Honored in the Rainbow Awards, Dusk Peterson writes historical speculative fiction: alternate history, historical fantasy, and retrofuture science fiction, including lgbtq novels, original slash, and other types of diverse fiction. Suspense plays an important role in many of the tales; the conflict in those tales is both external and internal. Peterson's stories are often placed in dark settings, such as prisons or wartime locations. The mood of the stories, however, is not one of unrelieved gloominess; romance, friendship, family affection, and faithful service are recurring themes.

Peterson is the author of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Dark Light, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, and The Eternal Dungeon) about disreputable men on the margins of society, and the men and women who care for them. Set between the 1880s and the 1910s, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. One of the series in the cycle, Waterman, combines elements of the 1910s with retrofuturistic imagery from the 1960s. Dusk Peterson has also written The Three Lands, a fantasy series inspired by conflicts between nations during the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages.

Note that some of the online fiction links may convert to e-book links in the future as I bring out new e-books. If that happens, you can still find the online fic mentioned below at my AO3 account.

23rd-Dec-2014 05:50 pm - Powerfic archive is coming back
apprentice
While I haven't mentioned it for a while here, this LJ is the official comm for the Boys in Chains archive. For those faithful few of you who remember the old days of Boys in Chains, I've got exciting news: the archive is coming back.

For those of you who weren't around at the time, I'll explain: Boys in Chains was a multifandom archive for both fiction and art, with a focus on stories about emotional bonds between people of different ranks or status. Boys in Chains opened in 2000 as an m/m slash slavefic archive. It later expanded its content to become an archive for works representing power imbalances, including slavefic, prisonfic, hookerfic and fic with BDSM themes. It welcomed fan fiction and original fiction, as well as art depicting similar themes.

The archive is now moving in with the Archive of Our Own (AO3). To reflect its openness to f/f slash, het, and gen, the archive's name will be changing to Chains: The Powerfic Archive. For further information, please see the announcement post or contact Open Doors.

The Chains archive has been offline since the middle of the last decade, so I'm very pleased that it will be open for business again.

Title: Coded Messages.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, DW/IJ/LJ/list, AO3.
Series: Life Prison, a speculative fiction series about male desire and determination in nineteenth-century prisons. You don't need to have read the other stories in the series to understand this one (though the first story in the series is free, if you prefer to read the series in order; "Coded Messages," a side story, is chronologically second).

Summary: One of them rapes prisoners. The other wants to help prisoners. So why are they talking to each other?

As guards send each other telegraph messages through their prisons' coding offices, strange developments occur in the life prisons of the Magisterial Republic of Mip: hardened prisoners become reformers, idealists dally with danger, and the prison keepers struggle to keep control. The strangeness will only become odder when two guards, who hold very different views on the proper handling of prisoners, strive to find common ground.

"Sweet blood, Tom, sometimes I wonder at your innocence. Why do you think that your prisoners were sent to prison? It wasn't for lacing daisy chains."

Title: Lost Haven: a master, his servant, and a disappearing island.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, DW/IJ/LJ/list.
Series: Waterman, a historical fantasy series and retrofuture series inspired by the Chesapeake Bay oyster wars, boarding school rivalries in the 1910s, and 1960s visions of things to come. You don't need to have read the other stories in the series to understand this one.
Categories: Original slash. Age-of-sail fiction set on an island. Liege-master/liegeman and master/servant (part of a servantfic/slavefic series).
Length: Short story (5,000 words).
Note: This is a holiday gift story for my readers, written in response to a prompt by Yingtai, and is also written in response to the 50 Darkfics challenge.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Rating: PG.
Summary: Amidst a servant's nightmare, can a haven of hope be found?

Meredith has brought his beloved master to the island where he spent the happiest days of his childhood. But when danger descends upon them, they must seek refuge, and Meredith must confront the tantalizing sorrows and rewards of change.

Then he remembered (on the edge of his memory, like a smudge of land on the horizon of the Bay) the reason that he and his father had lived alone on an island where once hundreds of people had lived.

***

Plus, three recently reissued stories:

The New Boy (Michael's House). Running a business seemed a simple enough matter: you learned what the patron wanted, and you forced an employee to satisfy his needs. Then along came the new boy. ¶ PG-13; gen/slash; historical fantasy; prostitutefic; chan in the subplots (but no onscreen sex); e-book.

Night Shadow (Darkling Plain). A prince who could see beyond his borders but not see the people around him. . . . An enemy who would take any measure to get what he wanted. .. . And now a stranger has brought news to the prince of an approaching danger. ¶ PG; gen; historical fantasy; lord/liegeman fic; prisoner fic; e-book.

Re-creation (The Three Lands). What can you give a slave who, by law, can own nothing? That is the question faced by Peter, the teenage heir to the throne of an empire. Despite his father's desire that the imperial heir maintain a formal distance from servants, Peter finds himself drawn in friendship to the younger boy who serves as his slave. But a shocking revelation on the eve of the New Year forces Peter to confront his own motives for keeping the slave close by. And that in turn will help him understand the deeper meaning of the gift-giving festival. ¶ PG-13; gen/slash; fantasy; slavefic; royalty/subject fic; underage characters (but no sex); e-book and online fiction.
