chronological fic index

So the heroic [personal profile] spatz decided to make a list of all my Vorkosigan fics in chronological order. And I did some editing of it and turned them all into links, and here you have it, the full index of all my fics! They are divided into two columns: the fics that are meant to intersect seamlessly with canon, and the fics that don't.

It made me think a bit about my approach to fic. I do feel, when I write a story, that it should be possible to slot it into canon without contradicting or undoing anything that happens in canon. Not that it's the only way it could have happened (I'm still holding out for someone to write the fic in which Alys and Simon have never so much as thought about each other except as vague colleagues until Memory) but that it could have happened that way and it's reasonably plausible and doesn't alter things particularly.

The other list of fics are the ones that deliberately break this canon-compatibility, either because of non-canonical pairings or complete AUs or crossovers or anything else that means you couldn't really slot the fic into canon and expect everyone to believe it happened that way. I'm kind of in two minds about the non-canon pairings and quite where they belong (especially Aral/Illyan, which I'm always so ambiguous about - I love it and I think it's plausible, but I love them in a simple gen-loyalty relationship too, and I never feel convinced that both are possible at once).

There are some minor internal inconsistencies, owing to me not having actually done this on purpose and not having Illyan's memory either, but the only notable canon inconsistency is 'Vorkosigan's Day', which I mistakenly stuck in the wrong period - by canon, it happened after the Regency, but in the fic, Aral is still Regent. That bugs me, but I don't think I can rewrite it to fix it, so you're stuck with it.

And, well, the list is kind of scarily long - I can't quite believe I've written that many fics, but then, most of them are fairly short fics. Also, I do really like writing these things! I expect this list will continue to grow :-).
