Story: In the Eye of the Storm

[Crossover][Adventure] This is actually a crossover with Heralds of Valdemar.  Those that are unfamiliar with it might be a bit lost, but the pre-readers who are fans really enjoyed it. 

Author: SPark

Description: Luna has begun to recover from her long exile and from the
bitterness of hatred, but she longs for a friend she can confide in.
Meanwhile on another world entirely, in the kingdom of Valdemar, the
mage Elspeth experiments with a new kind of portal spell… A
crossover with Mercedes Lackey’s Heralds of Valdemar series.

    *Looks up "Heralds of Valdemar" on Google Search*Wow, this is certainly a unique and unpredicted crossover. I mean, it's a set of books from the eighties and nineties that aren't all that mainstream.So, I'll just read it and see how lost I get.

    Hope you got one of those "creative commons" licenses. She's rather touchy about fanfics.

    @AnonymousI don't think you understand what "creative commons" means, but it's actually the opposite of what you think it is.It wasn't her that was opposed to fanfics, but her agent, who has now apparently gone a lot softer on them, allowing fanfics that fall under the creative commons laws to get a free pass.This just simply means that the fanfic in question must not make any profit, be published, or distributed on websites such as Amazon."As you folks already know, my agent, Russel Galen, has in the past been opposed to fanfiction. However, he is also Cory Doctorow's agent now, and Cory is a persuasive little gnome.As a result of this, I am happy to announce that we are officially permitting fanfiction to be licensed as derivative fiction under the Creative Commons umbrella.What this means is: NO, you cannot make money on it. NO, you cannot self-publish a fanfiction novel of Valdemar (or any of my other stuff) and try and sell it on Amazon. And NO, I still am not going to read it, because I am already so far behind on my research reading I barely have time to read that.But YES, you may write and post away, folks, so long as you license it as derivative and under Creative Commons. If it is anything other than PG-13, please take all the proper precautions to stick it somewhere that innocent souls won't be corrupted. Do not scare the children or the horses. Have fun!"All on their blog.

  7. Heralds… of… Valdemar?! How are you…? Oh my gosh, MUST READ!

    Luna's a herald?INSTANT SIX STAR

  9. I… I'm not sure how I feel about this honestly. Luna, a Herald? 6_o

    an Interesting read, I look forward to seeing how this all turns out. Still I really can't see Luna going to Valdemar since she DOES kinda hold a fundamental force of the world in her soul no telling what would happen.

    You have greatly pleased your Queen. I think I may have even fanfillied. The Heralds of Valdemar books are my favorite series.However, I noticed a couple discrepancies. One being that Elspeth would not have been mentally knocked unbalanced, as she had learned how to Ground and Center herself. The other being that Vanyel would not have been willingly messing with and researching Gate magics unless it was absolutely vital to the well-being of Valdemar.While I can agree that they're plot points, it would not have taken much to change things around to fix them.In other news, I greatly enjoyed this and look forward to more.5/5

  12. Dragryphon says:

    @AnonymousActually, they are quite mainstream. Mercedes Lackey is one of the more well-known fantasy authors out there.

    Hmmm. Let's see what's on equestria Da… OH F*ck YEAH!This is awesome. A crossover between one of my favorite book series and MLP.I'm so happy I could cry.Ok, maybe the previous statemnt is a tad overstated.But this is still like, totally AWESOME!

  14. Kyle says:

    Wait, the Heralds of Valdemar?! I haven't those books since High School!For those curious, it was the Exile series, because Alberitch is just THAT awesome.Anywho, I read through the four chapters, looking promising so far. Can't wait to see more.Though there was one detail I also noticed about Elspeth. At this point in the chronology, post Storms, she might be a princess, but it's mostly just a title, as she's officially renounced her claim to the Throne.

    @DragryphonGrounding is Grounding in the planet on which Valdemar takes place. If you pass through a portal to another planet, I think it's reasonable to say the Grounding gets disrupted. As for Vanyel, I would chalk it up as a byproduct of going after something more useful. That might explain why it wasn't filed under 'Interdimensional Gate to a World Ruled by Talking Pastel Ponies'.

  16. Dragryphon says:

    @AnonymousYou forget something. Grounding and Centering are one and the same lesson, but two serperate and entirely different things. Grounding only allows a mage to dissipate energy back into the ground. CENTERING, however, is finding your mental center and keeping it. Once you find it, you can't lose it. Plus, too, Elspeth hadn't yet passed through the portal.Now, once again, too. Vanyel experiences mental anguish past all means from being even near to a Gate.

  17. *reads voraciously*I think this is going to take the title of "Most Awesome Thing This Week". The only thing that comes close is Past Sins, but this has a higher awesomeness factor.

    Twilight accepted the story instantly, without asking a single question. And then Luna showed up and everything was accepted. That scene was very rushed and more than a bit clumsy and out of character.Other than that, I'm enjoying the story and look forward to its continuation.

    @AnonymousAnd then Luna was already there because that was the point of first chapter, possibly.

  20. bladespark says:

    Being off balance doesn't have to mean being *magically* off balance. It can mean being *metally* off balance, which is rather likely given that Elspeth was not at all expecting what happened. And mentally off balance people who are surprised and unready are more likely to do the wrong thing and mess up an already bad situation even further. As for Twilight believing Elspeth right away, frankly I HATE stories that go on and on and on with intelligent, well-read people who ought to be totally familiar with the concept of other dimensions acting as though they'd never heard of such a thing before. But in any case, Twilight's off-hand reference to how it's usually her messing up a portal spell is, after all, evidence that this might well be the Twilight from any number of other crossover fics, who's *been* to other dimensions.

    Bother. Sorry about my typos there.

    And my Lackey-loving best friend must be told.Funny thing, I totally have a book signed by Mercedes Lackey. The Gates of Sleep. She's a Tulsan, you know….-sneaks the Tulsa Bronies URL into name-

    Oh. My. Gooooooooood. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE~~!I may just have lost my already minimal amount of masculinity, but daaaaaaang…This is easily the best fanfic featuring Luna out there, with Corona Blaze as a close second. …Whoever you are, I love you for making this. ❤

  24. Emmalyn says:

    Aw man, I'd love to read this (been on my "to-read" list since it's been posted; the "Heralds" series are some of my favorite books EVER), but FIMfiction says it's been removed, and the Google Doc is no longer accessible. Sadness! ;_;
