Friday's Featured Writer of the Day

For today’s post, I’m featuring a lovely writer named Siouxsie Sioux, who offers three wonderful RA stories to choose from.

My first selection is an intriguing Guy of Gisborne fic called “Ismay of Aquitaine.” Taking place after the end of series two, it involves a young female apothicary named Ismay...a woman with a dark past and a desire for revenge. On her journey to find the man who did her a terrible injustice, she encounters a wounded Guy of Gisborne. After aiding him with her knowledge of healing, they form a bond of friendship that slowly blossoms into love, and together they set out on a quest to right the wrongs of the past.

This was a romantic and sometimes sad story, and we get a most nasty villain in the form of Prince John. I couldn’t help but imagine Toby Stephens in the part, and it was interesting to see a different foe for this story besides the Sheriff. The author also offers some different endings to choose from, which was something I really enjoyed.

Siouxsie Sioux’s other RA offerings are two North and South fanfics, both of which I’m still in the process of reading. (My to-be-read pile is always adding stories.)

The first is a modern telling called “Come Back to Me,” and the other is a tale called “Bluebirds,” set at the outbreak of World War II. Since I’m still reading these, I won’t try and jot down a false description, as I’m just discovering them for myself. But I’m loving what I’m reading so far, and I hope you will take a look at these stories and enjoy them just as much.

You can find these lovely works on C19 and Wattpad. Here are the links...

Happy Reading!


  1. Thanks Sarah. I am familiar with Siouxsie Sioux as a poster on C19 but i didn't realise she wrote fanfics. I must visit the C19 writers forum rather than spend all my time on The Hobbit thread.

  2. Thanks Sarah! I haven't started reading any fics other than N&S ones. I would highly recommend Bluebirds!! :)

  3. I love the idea of a "choose your own ending" story! That makes it more interactive. Thanks for introducing us to Siouxsie Sioux. I didn't know she wrote fanfic!

  4. I'm so UTTERLY pleased you featured SiouxsieSioux!! I love her Ismay of Aquitaine story and I'm ashamed I haven't read her other though I've started them and they are so promising and engaging. I love her writing!

  5. I'd known Siouxsie Sioux as a vidder until I found her on Wattpad; it was a great surprise to discover she was a writer too, and a good one. Her "Ysmay of Aquitaine" moved me to tears; I'm looking forward to reading all her stories.

  6. Hello there! Well what a week and what a lot of effort has gone into keeping a wide spectrum of people entertained. Thanks Sarah so very much for including me in your fest - we are all modest about our fics so you can imagine this has had us rushing all over the place squeeing everywhere!! RA really is an inspiration to many - does he know? *cough* yep cos I wrote to him ages ago and confessed (but then again so have many more so I figure that there is safety in numbers!!) Long may the inspiration continue!! Well there is still so much fest ground to cover so I will go and indulge some more. Thank you everyone for your continued support I was so close to having something accepted late 2010 that I could almost smell the ink! Please keep reading and please keep your fingers crossed for me. Have fun - Sue x
