Moldy Oldie: 'Oaths'  
This one is nearly ten years old, but probably is the story I'm most proud of all these years later. Somebody on a totally unrelated email list mentioned to me last week that she remembered this particular story, and how much she enjoyed it. It was a nice little ego boo!


The majority of it takes place in 78 AD, Transalpine Gaul to be exact, and explores reincarnation when one person is mortal, and the other a vampire. One of my rare non crossover fics! It was a finalist in the 1998 Forever Knight Fanfic Awards. It's also the only story I've written two versions of. Back in the day, it was too adult for the FK Fic email list, so I had to tone it down from the R it was to a PG13. This is the PG13 version, but I could probably be persuaded to share the adult version [g]

Rereading the notes, I realize that I'm still in contact with most of my support team/beta readers all these years later. aka_arduinna, otterevil, ninjababe, lilliew, and havocthecat. Thanks, guys!

Later the Next Day: Here's the link to the R rated version.

Still one of my favorite stories, very well written and romantic. Makes me *almost* like LaCroix.

10 years???? eep. Now I feel old.

Tell me about it! Ten damn years.

When Glo was betaing it, she actually phoned me to yell at me because it made her cry, and she said she never cried reading fic. Was one of the nicest compliments ever!

Oh, I remember this fic! It was wonderful! I will definitely have to re-read!

I'd love to read the adult version.

I think it's still on my website somewhere. Will have to go hunt around in the files tonight. If not, I'll reupoad it. Or I suppose I could even post it here like a real story [g]

I went ahead and posted the adult version here on my LJ.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Sequel is here if you're interested.

Terrific! I think I might have read at least part of this--my internet connections weren't as reliable then as now. It's a great combination of research and story (and just proves that having to use plain text instead of formatting is a pain).

Thanks, too, for the sequel link.

You're welcome!
