Discussions, links and recs for Kaleidoscope

Now that Kaleidoscope and Kaleidoscope Treats are live, we can devote ourselves to READ/VIEW/WATCH ALL KALEIDOSCOPE FANWORKS!

As you're reading, viewing and watching Kaleidoscope fanworks (which includes treats, yes), feel free to come back to this post and tell us your reactions and/or recs. What fanwork(s) have made:
  • you want to click AO3's Kudos multiple times (if it was possible to do so)?
  • you wish for more fanworks on a particular fandom, relationship, character, trope or style?
  • you feel some closure for a particular canon, relationship or character?
  • you laugh out laugh?
  • you teary-eyed?
  • you stop and think?
And so on.

If you've made posts on the topic of Kaleidoscope fanworks, whether they be recs or a general links pointer, please also link them here!

Pins of Bone Six by Ten is breathtakingly gorgeous, and you don't have to be familiar with Gilgamesh to appreciate it.

And Hours (Aoi Hana) is almost painfully cute, much like the source material.


Regarding Kaleidoscope, I made a post here about the works I was lucky enough to receive.

Seconded, it's great, and since the canon is a picture requires no background knowledge at all.

My favourite of the works I've seen so far is Heterosis, a very intelligent follow-on to and queering of the Xenogensis trilogy.

My recs post is here, with recs in a whole BUNCH of fandoms (Coffee Prince, The Inheritance Trilogy, Saving Face, The Epic of Gilgamesh, and Mongolian History RPF), because I'm indiscriminate like that.

My recs post is locked, but through the magic of cut and paste:

For my present I got a lovely little pre-canon scene for Jemisin's Inheritance Trilogy, Echoes in an Empty Place, about Kurue and Zhakkarn in their days as Enefadeh. It has just the right atmosphere of exhaustion and bitterness and resignation, plus bonus femslash. Everything I asked for! I just want to cuddle it. Also, I want to ask for more Zhakkarn fic, because she is tragically underused in the trilogy.

Other fic I particularly enjoyed include the Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame story Sword and Fan and Feathered Jacket, which has a strong Jing'er voice and a drily humorous Di; Ink, Stone, Brush, Paper, a bittersweet take on a historic Chinese poem; and Fifty Years in the Virtuous City, a beautiful story of two women orbiting around each other from childhood to old age. The latter two really don't require any canon knowledge to enjoy.
