Mini-sode: Dog Days of Summer

The Otalia Virtual Season mini-sodes are representations of the talent of our writers and artists. These mini-sodes may or may not be actual scenes or plots that will be a part of the regular OVS episodes.

Title: Dog Days of Summer

Fandom: Otalia

Rating: G

Summary: Junk food, sun, and an amusement park; who could ask for more?

Disclaimer: I do not own Otalia, Doris, Blake, or any of their brood. They still belong to CBS, Telenext, and P&G. No infringement intended. This is purely for entertainment.

A/N: Submission for the OVS mini-sode series. This scene may or may not represent actual scenes or plots in the upcoming Otalia Virtual Seasons.
A/N2: I am terrible at summaries, so I apologize. Just a piece of fluffy nothing to try and ease all the darn angst...

"Why am I here again?"

FIC: Currents 1/1; Guiding Light

TITLE: Currents
FANDOM: Guiding Light
PAIRING: Blake/Doris (at that delicious stage before anything actually happens.)
SUMMARY: Doris comes to a realization, with the help of Olivia.
A/N: Part seven of my slow burn Blis series.  Part one is The Babysitters' Club.  Part two is Blake Marler, Keeper of Secrets.  Part three is Doris Wolfe, Winner/Loser. Part four is Mothers and Daughters.  Part five is Ode to Joy.  Part six is Whatever Comes Next.
A/N 2: purplepapillon and I have worked out a kind of shared backstory for Doris, so anything you recognise here can be explained by the fact that I'm working from that.

(Doris didn't want to be Blake's experiment. She didn't want to be a drunken mistake. She didn't want to be a hazy memory. She much more than that.)


Diamonds Are For The Weak (Part 3)

Title: Diamonds Are For The Weak

Pairing: Olivia/Natalia

Rating: PG-13 currently

Summary: Begins after the 8/19 episode, and veers off into my own little world from that point on.

Author’s Note: I’m so busy these days. So, I’m sorry that the updates are so few and far between. You know I’m thinking about it. You know I’ll post when I can. Hope you can forgive me…

Part 3:

Fanart: Otalia: AU -- Afterworld

I seriously debated posting this here as it's not the usual, stare longingly into each other's eyes sort of thing, but then I figured, what the heck, it has CC and JL, big guns and the undead. Gotta be somebody else who wants to see that. However, in the interest of good taste, I've popped the tiny, LJ version of the graphic behind the cut. It links to a much larger version on my website.

And since I've apparently been a bit too subtle in the past. Posting links is fine, as is making walls for your own use, but...

Otalia - Leave Right Now

Fandom: Guiding Light
Pairing: Otalia (Olivia and Natalia)
Artist: Will Young
Song: Leave Right now
POV: Olivia's
A/N: Don't think I posted this video here...So I decided to! :D I thought this song described Olivia's feelings well so I made this video...

Le Reviel

August Challenge Fanfic: Lovers in Sunlight (Kushiel's Dart Trilogy)

Title: Lovers in Sunlight

Author: Manda

Fandom/Pairing: Kushiel's Legacy – Phedre/Nicola

Rating: R-ish.

Warnings: This fic contains femslash and elements of consensual BDSM. If that squicks or offends, feel free to skip this one.

Feedback: Adored here, or should the mood strike, at


A/N: This is a new fandom for me to write in, which is exciting and little scary to try and get the characters voices just right. Especially with this series of books, which are, absolutely awesome. If you're unfamiliar with the books, check out more info here: Kushiels's Legacy


A/N2: This is set post-Kushiel's Avatar and kind of in the middle of Kushiel's Scion. It doesn't really fit into the plot of the books, but makes reference to several of the things that happened in the series, so if you haven't read through at least Kushiel's Scion, you're in for some spoilers J


Enjoy! ~ Manda
