Title: The Sun
Fandom: Young Wizards
Pairing: Kit/Nita married, Roshaun/Dairine implied
Rating: G, mentions of character death
Spoilers: For "Wizards At War"
Disclaimer: The Young Wizards series belongs to Diane Duane. This fanfic is a derivative of canon material that is not my property. I do not profit from these writings. The opinions and actions expressed in these stories are not necessarily the views and beliefs of the original author or me.
Note: This fic seems to end sort of abruptly, but that's intentional. It's meant to be a little vignette in the characters' lives (it just got a little bigger than I anticipated).

Written for Kara for the myriadwords ficathon; prompt: "holidays at the Callahans/Rodriguezes, sometime in the future."

Excerpt: It had been better than fifteen years since Dairine had seen Roshaun. In fact, she had just celebrated her twenty-ninth birthday not long before. It was somewhat still discomfiting to see the age difference in the appearance of the Sun King on the doorstep.

Disclaimer: The Young Wizards series and the Feline Wizards series belongs to Diane Duane. This fanfic is a derivative of canon material that is not my property. I do not profit from these writings. The opinions and actions expressed in these stories are not necessarily the views and beliefs of the original author or me.
Note: Assumes passing familiarity with the Feline Wizards 'verse. I figured since my recipient requested them, she'd probably read the books, but it's nothing really plotty.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] deifire for the myriadwords ficathon; prompt: "The cats are in trouble again." AND "Nita and Kit as no-longer-young wizards."

Excerpt: "There's a million things out there alive! The stars are singing to the dawn and the grass is waking and the trees are planning their day. How long has it been, Nita, since we've done something to help them?"
