Goldenlake Decathlon Fics

I recently completed the Goldenlake Tamora Pierce Forum Decathlon, where everyone had to write 5 track and 5 field events for their chosen character or couple.

This was my first time writing Tamora Pierce fanfiction so I thought I'd share :)

My character was Tobe. The first 7 fics are set when he was young, beginning when he was born and finishing just after their return from Scanra. In the AU fic he is roughly the same age as he was in Lady Knight. In the last 2 fics he is older, married and waiting for the birth of his first child.

Rating: G

Rating: PG
Event: 4x100 Word Sin Relay (Envy, Greed, Lust, Pride)
Words: 400

Warning: Mild implied violence

Look under the cut for the other 8 fics!Collapse )



King Baird V has been on the throne just over a year. In that time he has banished councillors and spent more money than many before him, most recently on the most lavish royal wedding in history. While Tortall is in a time of peace, her enemies do not sleep. There are whispers of treason in the palace and Tusaine pressing upon her neighbour's hinterlands.

While the court has escaped the summer heat at the Summer Palace, in the capital of Corus, commoners struggle to make ends meet. In the city's criminal underground another King of the Rogue has been killed, leaving the organization in chaos and threatening to destroy the stability of the city.


Eastern Lands is an intermediate roleplay dedicated to being a friendly and creative community. Set in Tamora Pierce's world of Tortall over a hundred years before The Song of the Lioness. Easy to integrate, we require no previous knowledge of the books.

Fanfic Decathlon

Goldenlake is an open membership discussion forum dedicated to the works of Tamora Pierce, including all series and universes!

Character and couple claiming starts June 23, and discussion and planning is already happening! New members are welcome!

Title: Affection
Author: thegraduate09
Word Count: 309
Fandom: Circle of Magic & Sequels.
Rating: PG
Summary: Sometimes it's too late to get close to someone even when it shouldn't be.
Author's Note: I'm not entirely sure where this came from, but it was very determined to be written. No real pairing, although you could read it as Briar/Tris/Sandry/Daja all together, I guess. It's old, I'm just now cross posting it from ff.net.

Veralidaine Sarrasri by ~dulu on deviantART

I'll be wearing the costume to MEWcon, an anime/manga/sci-fi/fantasy convention that takes place on New Years'. The costume isn't finished yet - I hope to add the badger's claw and possibly some darkings to carry around. I'm really happy about the bow that we just happened to have lying around in our house though. :'D

One day you go to sleep in your room, you trip, turn a corner, or anything really. The next thing you know you are in a new land, a strange land like you have never seen the likes of before. Others are there but no one seems to know where you are or what you are doing there. People are from different times and different lands.

You all have one thing in common, however. None of you have any idea where you are or how you got there. There are similarities between your lands, you all have magic and mages in existance, you all believe in Gods and Godesses... including Trickster Gods, Kyprioth for some and Lakik for the others. Some of you may have reason to believe that the Tricksters are behind this strange new adventure... and you would not be far from the truth.

Welcome to Tricksters' Realm, a multi-era Roleplay game based on Tamora Pierce's books.

All you need is love

It's been a long, long time since I've done a rec post. This one is all about love, but with a catch. You won't finds stories about romantic love here. This post is for stories that contain a few of the many other kinds of love that people can experience-- including affection for family, friends and shiny objects!

Apologies for the lack of Beka and Emelan recs. If you would like to make recs of your own that fit with the theme, please do!

And if anyone wants to talk about their preferences regarding gen fic (with or without het, slash or femslash) vs. shipping fic (fic where the focus is to hook up two--or more!--characters), well, that could be fun.

The Tamora Pierce Checklist

Lots of new things happening in the fandom right now, between the new Beka book coming out and the Goldenlake Drabble and Fanart Competitions!

I haven't read the new book yet, but its arrival and a certain comment got me thinking. Here is what kaos_sparrow had to say in this post:

I would like to see a book where the focus isn't as much on Our Main Characters Are Girls. It would be interesting to see something more subtle, where one of the main characters is a boy but there are plot-important female characters. Sometimes it feels like the difference is being thrown in your face, like girls can't be side characters and still be important.

I would want to read this book, but I don't think it would still be a book by Tamora Pierce if it were written this way. T/F?

So, what exactly makes a Tamora Pierce book a Tamora Pierce book? If your were making a checklist, what defining items would be on it that let you know that you're reading a book by Our Author?
