Do Zla Boga by Kangeiko

'So why, astute readers may wonder, do some older gods survive?...If I tell you it is good deeds and miracles, you will know that I am lying.' A dark Gaimanesque tale, with a wonderful narrative voice

[Added 01/02/2011; Drama; 1000-2500; American Gods; Characters: Czernobog, Zorya Polunochnaya, Zorya Utrennyaya, Koliada, Mr Ibis, OCs]

The Man in the Gaberdine Suit by Merlin Missy

'He doesn't have a plan. Plans shatter regularly, teacups on a parquet floor. Instead of planning Shadow visualizes an image, not as sharp as snow, but simple like the smell of fresh pie.' Lovely tone with a real feel of the original, working inevitably towards the perfect ending. One of my favourites from Yuletide 2011

[Added 28/05/2012; Drama; 2500-6000; American Gods; Characters: Shadow Moon, Easter, Anansi, Czernobog, Zorya Vechernyaya, Zorya Utrennyaya, OCs]
