Title: Naturally Unnatural
Fandom: Magelight Chronicles
Characters: Mocker
Rating: T ( L0 N2 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: Nude, from behind
Notes: It's time for this week's Mayhem by Magelight pinup, and I'm introducing Mocker, another character I haven't done any work with in almost a decade. While this is how Mocker usually appears, when left to their own devices, they're actually a primordial ooze, and can take the form of almost anything, if they've had the time to study it. Perhaps obviously, they're better at copying features than creating them without a reference, so their unreferenced human forms usually sit in the uncanny valley.

Title: The Weapon of the Wood
Fandom: (Non-canon) Magelight
Characters: Frego , Mocker
Rating: M (L0 N3 S3 V0 D0)
Warnings: Shapeshifting, gender-swapping, slave trading
Notes: For y!GallerySargantas. This was supremely strange to write. It needs dialogue, but I don't know one of the characters well enough to write dialogue for him, so the dialogue is all suggested rather than explicitly spoken. Not really sure how I feel about that. It's also confusing as hell, and that's semi-intentional. Mocker changes forms faster than people change their socks, and he's always called by the face he's wearing. Sometimes he's the Marquess of Renshaw, sometimes he's a friar, a foreign spirit, a jaguar… If you're not sure who that is, it's probably Mocker. This is a pretty serious break, stylistically, from anything I've written, before, and I don't know how well it works, but I do know it's the only way I could manage to tell this particular story.

Title: The Weapon of the Wood (Prologue)
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Mocker , Noctis , Artemesia
Rating: G- (L1 N0 S0 V0 D1)
Warnings: Foul language, dark deeds, and gin.
Notes: The Unspoken, who numbered several tens, at the start of the War of Dominion, which lasted close to seven hundred years, were nearly obliterated during the war. Five worth speaking of survived it, and one of them died a hundred years later. Two were divided over her death, and one of those two has just discovered another of their number, presumed dead for centuries, may yet live. This is not actually the commission! This is the prologue to the commission, which I had to write, in order to screw my head on to do the commission. Consider it an introduction to some of the background, if you haven't read enough Magelight to know Mocker, his troubles, and his bizarre sense of humour.
