Title: The Poisoner's Triumph
Fandom: Magelight Chronicles
Characters: Aurelio Merlo
Rating: T ( L0 N1 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: Very long hair as substitute for clothing, glowing magical liquid
Notes: So, back when I was still figuring out How To Art, I did 'A Glass of Poison'. And I wasn't happy with it, so I did it again about two years later. (Both versions are in that post.)

Title: The Smouldering Smith
Fandom: Magelight Chronicles
Characters: Emoric
Rating: G- ( L0 N1 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: One shirtless dude
Notes: I will never stop being surprised when Magelight wins the extras poll. This is Emoric, a minor character in the original story, who was a bit of a gearhead at a time that mostly meant clocks and windmills. Making horseshoes and shovel blades paid the bills, though.
