Epiphany's Collection of Stories

03 Jun 2006, 00:43

As the Freedom Stone's Resident Novelist, the following are links to the several Exalted novels I've written, along with a number of shorter series and standalone fiction. I do occasionally do requests so if you're interested in co-writing/cameo appearances/etc., feel free to PM me.

Virtually all of these stories are set within the same setting of Exalted, meaning any of the characters from these stories could meet other characters from different stories...and, in some cases, frequently do. If you have any confusion in following who's who, you can check this thread: The Complete Cast of Epiphany's Fiction

Likewise, there's a lot of interconnection between my stories and it can help to read them in literary order. You can always look at: The Complete Timeline to the Pivot Child Setting or just check the flowchart.

My Novels

Exalted Novels:

The Fulcrum Hammer: The final book of the Pivot Child saga finds the cast of the Pivot Child book once more assembled to face a threat to Creation. A prophetic threat foretold almost 1500 years ago has finally come to bloom. Now Exalts of every kind must set aside centuries of mistrust and bridge the gulfs of ideology between each other or watch as everything in Creation perishes. Readers new and old will find a story of Creation-spanning scale featuring undying love, unfading hate, epic combat scenes and a deep exploration of the religious and philosophical themes surrounding belief and tragedy written into Exalted since its inception in 2000. Note: Stalled indefinitely.

Righteous Sword : In the sequel to Righteous Steel, the survivors of the War for Springhome unite with others committed to rescuing a man from Thorns...and beginning the city's liberation. Featuring a Circle of Solars, several Lunar Mates, Sidereal manipulation, epic military action and a developing marriage, Righteous Sword intends to build on everything that made Righteous Steel successful and exceed it. New readers are welcome and the book is intended to be intelligible if you haven't read my prior fiction but readers will enjoy it most if they've read both Righteous Steel (obviously) and the Pivot Child.

The Pivot Child : A tale of a Circle of Solars on the Blessed Isle. All Dynasts. All Martial Artists. And they are only one of several parties racing to seize control of the Imperial Manse while dealing with the mysteries of prophecy and their own past. The Pivot Child is read best after reading a Casteless Moon, an Abyssal's Dissent, Shades of the Loom and the Locust Crusade.

Righteous Steel : An epic tale of Chen Minxia, a Dawn Caste Solar with a mysterious past, caught up in the gathering of a great war in the Northeast. Featuring a diverse caste of guest characters from other Freedom Stone Forum members as well as Kestrel Sesus, an adventurous Changing Moon Lunar whose alliance with Chen leads to a great deal of complication for both of them. Note: Some chapters have a great deal of profanity. Several chapters have explicit sexual content.

Xilanada : The story of a woman's quest to escape the pain of an old life and old mistakes. Set in the city of Nexus, it features a fairly large cast, a school, demons, and (in one case) tentacles. The most likely book of mine to be turned into an anime series. Note: This is my oldest work and probably easiest introduction to the events in the Pivot Child setting.

Series

15 Jul 2007, 17:04

Shorter Series:

Shades of Necessity: A collection of stories surrounding a Bronze Faction Sidereal and the lengths she'll go through to save Creation at any cost.

Shades of Fury: A story surrounding Scarlet Snow, a young Realm Fire-Aspect whose Anathema father gets into trouble...and what she has to do to get him out. Set in RY 742, it's unique for these stories in that the audience votes determine how the story is written.

Vanishing: Graceful Flame: A collaborative group project with a number of Freedom Stone contributers. The premise is that on the morning of Calibration RY 769 every mortal in the Imperial City has vanished. The Exalts who wake must survive the Dragon-Blooded loose in the streets...and whatever else may be present in the city. For mists have surrounded the capital of the Realm...and every day grows darker than the one before. This particular story focuses on Lillun, the youngest daughter of the Scarlet Empress, and her efforts to escape the Imperial Manse and find out what's happened in the city.

Minxia Rising: A dark tragic story serving as a prequel for Righteous Steel, starring a Righteous Devil with a dangerous connection to Hell as well as a very young girl who, someday, may grow up to become the Swordmaster of Creation...or Creation's Doom. It's my attempt to write a horror story in Exalted. It's also unfinished and rather rough.

The Locust Crusade: A shorter-scale take on the Locust Crusade from the Alchemical book, set from the perspectives of two Sidereals, a Lunar and an Alchemical. In particular, it was written to revist an old and favorite character, E'lial.

An Abyssal's Dissent: A set of snapshots of an Abyssal with a complicated past and an even more complicated future. Intended as a character study to show how one person's desire to do good can lead to monstrosity and evil. Warning: Often graphic and could be disturbing.

A Casteless Moon: This is a collection of short stories set around a Casteless Lunar on the Blessed Isle. Warning: A great deal of profanity.

Tear-Streaked Surrender: The tales of a Sijanese Deadspeaker and what she does to free herself from a Deathlord. Unfinished and not likely to ever be finished without likely scrapping the second and third chapters and starting over. Warning: Bloody and it ends really lamely.

Concealed Reflection: An old Night-Caste PC of mine, I wrote this story years ago right before playing him to get a sense of his character. The oldest story of mine posted here and also the very first of my postings on the Freedom Stone.

Shades of the Crescent Lord: A mortal Harrier of the Wyld Hunt takes a ship to Lookshy to kill an Anathema...but when the boat is taken over by demons, her life becomes vastly more complicated than the secretive woman can imagine.

Short Stories

28 Nov 2007, 17:50

Short Stories:

Moonrise in House Mnemon. A short story featuring a Realm Dynast Lunar. Largely done to get in character since he's a PC.

Epiphany: My Forum namesake in her own fiction. Expect a lot of profanity, short jokes and comic relief.

Afraid - Seras' Gaiakuma Game - For Wildfire.
Just a short story done with Ava Spyefel, one of the characters from the Xilanada book. Set where she's a player character in a game run by Seras Winterblood where she's talking to Xilanada about a Dragon-Blooded man she's interested in.

My Medea.
Secrets Caste drabbles for Zeal's Kingdom of Heaven game. This is a variant on Iselsi Navia, only with her as the daughter of a Solar and a Lunar about 400 years before the Usurpation. Leads right up to 4 years after and the setting of Zeal's game.

In My Arms. Serenity Caste drabbles for my brother's tabletop game. This is a montage style set of stories around Noelani Vailea, one of the People of the Sea who Exalts as a Chosen of Serenity. Great fun for me.

Where the Wyld Things Are. An old children's story done Exalted style.

Amilar E'lial: Several stories surrounding the Chosen of Battles, E'lial, and what's left behind. Contains major spoilers if you haven't read the Locust Crusade and Pivot Child. Also quite dark.

The Mask of Pain: An Eclipse-Caste PC of mine, back in the day. Native and patriot of Thorns, liberating his homeland led him to reshape the entire Scavenger Lands. This is his Exaltation story.

Heaven Sent Hawk: A Changing Moon Lunar and one of the main characters of Righteous Steel, Pivot Child and Righteous Sword. These stand-alone stories largely have nothing to do with the Pivot Child story arch and are typically set before the events of Righteous Steel.

Heart-Wrought Silver: A story of the only Lunar to Exalt in Heaven. Told bed-time story style.

The Eye of Autochthon: Follow up to the Locust Crusade story, featuring a Chosen of Journeys and a Waxing Moon Lunar racing an Alchemcial and a No-Moon for control of one of the world's greatest artifacts.

The Bitterness of Love: Quickly written tragedy/erotica. Features a Sidereal signature character and a direction you might not expect. Warning: NSFW, explicit sexual content.

Exalted Mirror Universe Challenge: A hypothetical "what if" story, taking the Mirror Universe idea from Star Trek and applying it to Exalted. It won't make any sense if you haven't read Righteous Steel, though. Warning: Possibly the saddest thing I've ever written.

Seras & Xilanada: A kind of crossover fic between the main character of Xilanada and Seras Winterblood. Not especially canonical for my setting, but immensely fun to write. Warning: Some sexual content.

Righteous Smut: A list of bits of smut I've written. Each involves characters I've written in my fiction, usually in completely improbable situations. Written for amusement, rather than sexual arousal. They are, however, decidedly Not Safe For Work.

Chart of the stories in chronological order of event

28 Nov 2007, 17:51

Warning: The list below contains spoilers for my fiction, as it's more or less current and can reveal some huge developed plots before you read them. In other words, only read if you aren't concerned about having a story spoiled.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Solars:

Xilanada. Twilight Caste Sorcerer, Professor of First Age Lore. Once called Final Starry Night, this Twilight caste studied in the Library of Denandsor for 50 years before conquering several countries with Solar Circle Sorcery. Once realizing the scope of his crimes, he made a deal with Shalryina, the Daiymo of Faces, for a new face and a new life. Xilanada now lives in Nexus, teaching at the Six Poses of Lightning school in the Bastion District, with her new husband and son, Tepet Ajalat Sen and Tepet Sen Arada. Appears in Xilanada.

Se'ville. Eclipse Caste Mastermind. Se'ville was the Eclipse of the Hierarch's Circle in the First Age and her secret husband. When she died, he placed his soul and shard into his Sword of Creation and possessed an instrument 900 years later. He almost destroyed Creation before being killed by the new incarnations of his old Circle. Now a ghost, Se'ville seems to have set aside his search for revenge in exchange for finding a way to cure the Great Curse and save the soul of the old Hierarch, now the Deathlord the Lover Clad in Raiment of Tears.

Iselsi Yezenjen. Zenith Caste Immaculate Monk, Pivot Child Circle. Yezenjen was born to fulfill a prophecy to save Creation. Raised in the Immaculate Order under the false belief that her parents were failed Immaculate Monks, Yezenjen became a preeminent scholar in her teens only to run into trouble when her studies of the Anathema revealed there might be a way to redeem them. When she would not be silent, the Order eventually went as far as matryring her by burning her alive...until she Exalted as a Zenith of the Unconquered Sun. She studied Sidereal Martial Arts under the tutelage of the Chosen of Battles, E'lial, before meeting her former Circle and discovering that she was the Hierarch of the Old Realm, holding Ya'moire's shard. Yezenjen helped save Creation from Se'ville's mad plan and now is the High Priest for the Children of the Sun, a cult to the Unconquered Sun rapidly spreading throughout the Blessed Isle.

Sesus Doyle. Eclipse Caste Bureaucrat, Pivot Child Circle. Sesus Doyle is a member of the Thousand Scales, works doing taxes and has some considerable fame as a sculpter. He's also known to have an eye for the ladies, a decidedly casual attitude and generally lives for the moment. Member of the Pivot Child Circle, he and Tempest get along well as both have strong family ties and a vested interest in keeping their Anathema nature secret. Doyle holds the shard of Lord Hal'wrathie, the First Eclipse, and now bears the Daylight Deliverer, the broken Sword of Creation once carried by Se'ville as it originally belonged to Doyle's predecessor.

Tempest. Twilight Caste Savant, Pivot Child Circle. Tempest, more Dynastically known as Cynis Belar Valeena, is a prodigal young woman with outstanding talents in alchemy, thamuturgy and occult skills of all kind. The daughter of Cynis Belar, she knows the trade (if not the practice) of a Dragon-Blooded courtesan and is in demand in the Imperial City for her talent at organizing parties. She is a beautiful, graceful woman with long blue hair and a sharp tongue. Unknown to her family, she hates the practice of slavery and taking action against it is what led to her Exaltation. Tempest strives to master Sorcery in an effort to win freedom for herself and all people, a drive that led her into conflict as often as harmony with the Pivot Child Circle. Having made an uneasy peace with Yezenjen, Tempest presently hones her sorcerous knowledge and dreads the day she meets her Lunar Mate once more...for if she remembers him as the First Age Lunar Padrick Ganan, she also knows him as the Infernal Relentless Tyranny and he's promised she will die or convert next time they meet.

Autumn Ruin. Dawn Caste Vigilante, Pivot Child Circle. A young woman named Tepet Tadrana grew up in an abusive household and grew up in the streets until the Magistrate Vicious Ember recruited her to be his spymaster. As a plain-looking, black-skinned cripple, she prospered under the name Secret until the day Faerie attacked the coast of the Blessed Isle. She Exalted as a Dawn Caste...and in her rage, she slew not only the Faerie but every person she could find in the city of Selent, rage she carried on to city of Serenity before the Wyld Hunt drove her away. Finding her old Manse, the Autumn Ruin remembered when she'd been General Kyvath, an First Age Solar far more honorable than she. From that time, she's striven to repent for her past mistakes by working within the Pivot Child Circle. At present, she destroys the wicked like a sword from the shadows, often working in partnership with her Lunar Mate, Elated Fury.

Chen Minxia. Dawn Caste Swordmaster of the World.
Jad Ivask. Zenith Caste Outrider.
Nathanial El'Karen. Eclipse Caste Spy.
Taroketu Johanna. Night Caste Ranger.
The Faceless. Twilight Caste Master Craftsman.
Seras Winterblood. Zenith Caste Soverign of Springhome.
Sebastian Sable. Dawn Caste Gunslinger.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Lunars:

Solitary Coil. No-Moon Lunar Sorcerer, (Professor of Wards). Once a Dune Person Shaman, then an explorer of First Age Ruins, she was Final Starry Night's right hand and Lunar mate. She is ruthless, predatory, frustrated by her Solar mate, and has few compunctions about making extensive use of demons.

Dragon-Blooded:

Tepet Ajalat Sen. Fire-Aspected Terrestrial Sorcerer-Assassin of House Tepet. Trained at the Heptagram, and historically employed for spywork and assassination. Presently on indefinite loan to his father, Malias, and teaches part time at the School. He is charming, passionate, a known lady-killer, and despite himself falls very deeply in love with Xilanada.

Tepet Ajalat Malias. Fire-Aspected Terrestrial Sorcerer. Little is known of his past. Ten years ago, he began construction on the Six Poses of Lightning School, opened its doors seven years ago, and presently seems to do little but brood in the Founder's Wing of the great facility. He will die of old age soon.

Tepet Ajalat Seya. Earth-Aspected Terrestrial Sorcerer, Professor of Summoning, Headmistress of the School. Also trained at the Heptagram, she is the older sibling in Nexus, also assisting Malias' operations at the School. She both teaches and is chiefly responsible for the school's administration. She is controlled, thoughtful, and both concerned and suspicious of Xilanada.

Ava Spyefel. Air-Aspected Terrestrial Sorcerer, Professor of the Dead. She was born in Sijan, raised as a Funerist, and left the city for a life of adventure and heroism until settling in Nexus. She has a Legendary degree of Dragon-Blooded Breeding and presently teaches all types of magic and Sorcery concerning the dead at the School. She is reserved, aloof, but best friends with Xilanada.

Other:

MaClee*click*Churl (Glee). Apparent Faerie-Blooded, Professor of Sorcery. Little is known of her past, though she and Seya have apparently known each other since childhood. She is Seya's best friend and teaches Sorcery, despite the lack of magical ability Faerie-Blooded usually display. She is wildly emotional, mischievous and has much of the Faerie ability to influence minds.

Rainblown Joybringer. God-Blooded of Shalrina, the Daimyo of Faces, Professor of Wards. Little is known about his past, beyond his heritage. He teaches at the Six Poses of Lightning School for his own reasons, is Piiro's lover, and the most attractive teacher on the faculty. He is mystical and known to speak in strange quotes.

Righteous Sword

07 Sep 2008, 20:07

Shades of Necessity:
This isn't really a story or a novel so much as it's a character arc, beginning with a young Chosen of Secrets who meets herself at the Loom of Fate and discovers a Prophecy with life-long implications. This is a set of stories around Iselsi Navia, a Bronze Faction Sidereal who at this point stands as one of the strongest antagonists in my fiction. Stories below listed in chronological order, not in the order they were written.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Shades of Orloria Kessen: A quickly written piece showing Navia's predecessor, Orloria Kessen, meeting a young Night Caste named Taking Chances who would someday have a profound impact on Orloria's next incarnation. Set in the First Age.

Shades of Exaltation: Navia's Exaltation story. Rather dark and rather inspired by Run Lola Run.

Shades of the Loom: The first Navia story. Ranging from the time she was a young adult to a mature Sidereal about 150 years before the present year in Creation, it shows the discovery of the Pivot Child Prophecy and what it means for Navia especially. The later chapters show Navia, centuries later, and the steps she's willing to take to see Creation saved through a Pivot Child. First part takes place about 1400 years ago. Later chapters are about 150 years ago.
Shades of the Loom P.1
Shades of the Loom P.2
Shades of the Loom P.3
Shades of the Loom P.4

Shades of Serenity: This is a murder mystery style story, cowritten between fellow Freedom Stone member Kailan and myself. Written when Navia is about 25, she partners with the century old Raha Muren, Chosen of Serenity and the only other Golden Child in the Bureau of Fate. Something's killing Dragonblooded in the early Shogunate and its up to the two of them to find out why the killer looks so much like Navia's mother...and how they can possibly stop her.
Shades of Serenity P.1 - The Innocent Maiden

Shades of Denied Endings: A quickly written snapshot of what the Great Contagion was like for Navia and the Sidereals working in Heaven. Takes place about 750 years ago.

Shades of Grave Fire: A tale following Shades of the Loom, about what happened to Iriszy's son from the 3rd Shades of the Loom story and why Hardened Killers aren't a good thing. Takes place about 135 years ago or so.

Shades of a Golden Child: A story set before the Pivot Child book, transitioning between Righteous Steel and the Pivot Child. My thoughts on Sidereals, ethics and how one Chosen of Secrets views the world. Takes place about 6 months before the start of current canon.
Shades of a Golden Child P.1 of 3
Shades of a Golden Child P.2 of 3
Shades of a Golden Child P.3 of 3

Shades of an Oricalcum Epiphany: This story takes place about a week after the conclusion and aftermath of the Pivot Child. Iselsi Navia, gravely shaken by recent losses and the outcome of the Pivot Child book, is forced to confront what she's made of herself...and to begin thinking on what she'll choose to do next.
Shades of an Oricalcum Epiphany P. 1 of 2
Shades of an Oricalcum Epiphany P. 2 of 2

Shades of Forgiveness: A request for ShieldoftheSun. Velessa, one of the Outriders from Righteous Steel, meets with the Sidereal who took her lover at the end of that book and asks for an explanation. Takes place today in canon.

Shades of a Caged Maiden: This is a historical piece, and likely a persistent thread for Navia's backstory. Specific parts include what her father was like and what motherhood means for her. Warning: The first part in particular is for Mature audiences only.

Tear Streaked Surrender III - The Void, The Darkness

Concealed Reflection

Reflection: An old Night-Caste PC of mine, I wrote this story years ago right before playing him to get a sense of his character. The oldest story of mine posted here and also the very first of my postings on the Freedom Stone.

Epiphany Standalone Complex

Epiphany: My Forum namesake in her own fiction. Expect a lot of profanity, short jokes and comic relief.
Sidereal Standup (NSFW).
A collection of stand-up comedy style scripts delivered by Epiphany, my signature Chosen of Endings, in the way only she can. The amount of profanity in this speaks for itself.
So an Epiphany Walks into a Bar: One-shot story featuring a rather profane Chosen of Endings from the Righteous Steel story. Warning: NSFW, adult content.
Epiphany & the Loom: Some brief backstory surrounding Epiphany's first encounter with the Loom of Fate...and why it's a 50/50 chance that Sidereals freak out on their first visit.

Amilar E'lial

A Sidereal Darkly: The truth of a Chosen of Battles and his broken Sword of Creation. Warning: This is an absolute spoiler for anything E'lial's been in so ideally it shouldn't be read until after one has at least read the Locust Crusade mini-series and the Pivot Child book. Reading the Xilanada and Righteous Steel books wouldn't hurt either.

Coming Back from the Brink. The story of a Sidereal crawling his way back toward sanity. Not to be read until after you've read the Pivot Child and you'll probably need to read A Sidereal Darkly to understand it.

Heaven Sent Hawk

Heaven Sent Hawk: The Changing Moon Lunar Mate of the Pivot Child, in her own stories. They largely have nothing to do with the Pivot Child story arch and are set before the events of Righteous Steel.
Exaltation.
