Dark Lords

Back to main fanfic page

I love Dark Lords. Partly it comes from the Evil Overlord site, which I really love. Even more, perhaps, it comes from Diana Wynne Jones' wonderful "Tough Guide to Fantasyland." Two of my Diana Wynne Jones stories - "A Boy Less Ordinary", and "Dark Lord" - are Dark Lord stories. These two don't belong in any fandom, though, so I thought I'd post them here. I've posted both before on my LJ
The final confrontation
After much hardship and loss, a hero finally reaches the Dark Lord's mountain fastness... Or has he? (Because if you're dealing with cliched Dark Lords, you have to have a cliched summary)


Evil has a new plan
I wrote this when I had gone through far too many professional development reviews and strategic planning meetings at work. After a few millennia of fire and brimstone, I think it's about time a Dark Lord discovered modern management techniques.


Modern labours
Okay, so this one is nothing to do with Dark Lords, but it might as well go here, since it certainly doesn't fit anywhere else. This came out of a throwaway comment on LJ, and I wrote it in a moment of silliness. It's a sad little tale of Hercules and how he is managing in the modern world.
