So, Deb Atwood (aka Tryslora on LJ, DW, etc…), a terrific writer and one of my beta-readers on the Magic University books, wrote a crossover fanfic story in which Alex from MagicU meets up with Random from Roger Zelazny’s Amber books. Zelazny was one of my early and persistent influences on my writing, and I’ve re-read the Amber series more times than I can count. (And maybe it isn’t a coincidence my life-partner of 20 years is named corwin…)
Anyway! How awesome. Yes, I do allow fanfic in my universe. Especially when it’s this good. The one warning is if you haven’t read Book 4 of MagicU yet, this has spoilers in it. It’s a smart little fic, and not-smutty:
Of Chance and Kings (1601 words) by tryslora
Fandom: Magic University – Cecilia Tan, Chronicles of Amber – Roger Zelazny
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Random son of Paulette, Random, Alex Kimble
Random and Alex, chance and luck, cards and beer and strange smokes. Nothing more than that.
