etienne_bessette: (ACE Dilandau)
Okay, so in explanation, Oct. 23 - 29 is Asexuality Awareness Week! In celebration of this, and to help spread awareness, I'm going to be posting one ficlet a day centered around, or somehow pertaining to, asexuality. I'm going to try to cycle through my fandoms as I do this, but we'll see how successful I am at that.

For those who don't know about Asexuality, please give the topic a few minutes of your time! You can read more about what asexuality is at the AVEN website. Here is a link to AVEN's brief overview: ASEXUALITY BASICS

Today's fandom is Escaflowne. How could I resist? My favourite character in that series is a canon asexual. Note that Dilandau is aromantic asexual in this story, but in general asexuals are not necessarily aromantic. The two are not the same thing!

Title: Of Sand and Acceptance
Prompt: Asexuality Awareness Week
Word Count: 1422
Rating: PG-13 for mentions of sexuality (obviously)
Summary: Dilandau isn't attracted to anyone. Allen is a bit concerned by this.
Warnings: THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW. This is in the same universe as a fic I wrote a long time ago, which you cannot read because it is eyeball-meltingly godawful. What you do need to know is that Dilandau deserted the Zaibach army just before the last battle and eventually hooks up with Van and Allen after a series of very weird, twisted events. The madoushi are brought to justice, Dilandau gets a bit of peace of mind, begins the slow process of recovery, is pardoned, and Allen is now his legal guardian. I have another fic in the same 'verse that isn't quite as awful: Dance in Shadows.

Title: Dance in Shadows
Fandom: Vision of Escaflowne
Characters: Dilandau, Merle
Ships: none
Rating: G
Warnings:
This one-shot follows the events of an older story of mine: To Mend the Rose. It's not necessary to have read this story (thankfully, since it's not at all any good), but some points of clarification concerning the events that took place do need to be made:

Dilandau deserted the Zaibach army in ep. 25 just before the final battle. Remember the tent scene? He deserts there. Long story short, he hooks up with Van and Allen after a series of very weird, twisted events. The madoushi are brought to justice, Dilandau gets a bit of piece of mind, begins the slow process of recovery, is pardoned, and Allen is now his legal guardian.

Dance in Shadows was written a long time ago, so this post is backdated to reflect that. The writing here is not terribly good, but it's probably the best of my older Escaflowne stories, so I'm not too ashamed to archive it here.
