  1. Summary

    A Five+1 fic that got away from me since the +1 chapter spun into 8k words. Also will have a sequel with Diego's pov and five times he hugged Manny and One Time that he didn't, but that fic is kind of on the backburner for now.... I do have another Mango vignette to add, and now that Lacrimosa is complete, I'll try and get the Diego pov for Five Times Diego Hugged Manny and One Time He Didn't worked on in between getting ready to drop CI bk 1 on both ffn/ao3.

  2. Summary

    A sweeping epic, detailing firstly how Manny and Diego grew up and how their experiences in their different "societies" influenced their actions and choices in IA1. This is only the first book though, there is a novel called "Cruel Intentions" and "Lacrimosa" is a sort of prequel to/story taking place alongside it. I can't wait to share the rest of this series with you! :)

    Also, this series will prominently feature my favourite relationship/friendship circle in Ice Age - Manny & Diego & Peaches, with exploration into Peaches' closeness with Diego to the point of calling herself "half tiger."

    This series is a canon-divergent AU of the latter Ice Age sequels of IA4/5, so the canon I am using to build this series is IA1 to IA3, with a character like Shira being "borrowed" from IA4 to flesh her out more in a more villainous context and with more growth and character development for her.

    When CI bk 1 drops, it is meant to start post-IA3.

  3. Summary

    Two fics - one Diego's pov, the other, Manny's - detailing what went down in the missing years between the Meltdown and Dawn of the Dinosaurs, how and what Diego eats, and the testing of the friendship, which comes to a breaking point in the early minutes of IA3.

    Potentially controversial. Also contains foreshadowing for my Cruel Intentions series, of which the first novel, Lacrimosa, is available to read on both ff.net and ao3. Please read and enjoy, and don't forget to leave a comment! :P

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Diego/Manny is such an underrated Ice Age ship and needs written more I swear. IA1 made it clear they had something special together and whilst I primarily write them bromantically or along the lines of "deep friendship", I wish there were more slash fics of them!! Also this fic is very poignant and hits along some of the same lines I've been thinking because you can very easily read it, through a certain lens, of IA3, that Diego decides to "head out" because he's got these latent feelings for Manny and he can't take it any longer on top of his out of shape issues?

    Please someone tell me that this interpretation isn't just in my head because IA3 skewed heavily biased in favour of Mango (Manny/Diego) and even from first watch I picked up on how just *UST-y* the interactions between them are... part of me really wishes Blue Sky had leaned into that a bit more because there was always "something" between Manny and Diego from as early as IA1 and so it's very easy to write IA3 or IA1 fics with the subtleties of said irresistible draw these two have for and with each other....

    Summary

    Each step away from Diego was agonizing, but Manny kept going. He had to keep going. He couldn’t give up. It wasn’t the first time Manny lost everything.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Mango slashy angst. This fic always makes me cry dammit :') So lovely to see a very direct Mango slash fic other than The Weather's Fine, Mango is very underrepresented wrt slash fics and exploration of their friendship/relationship in general so that makes this fic an automatic win and I love it so much because it's emotional and sad and wonderful and told so well in just a few words. :')

    Summary

    Mac is injured watching her brother play baseball, and when she wakes up she finds that she's living the life she was always "meant to have" as Madison Sinclair. Some chapters (most chapters) will be from Mac's point of view, and the timeline will skip around a bit as she goes back to high school as Madison. The first chapter is "present time," present being 2009, on the third anniversary of Cassidy's suicide. Dick's POV will cover the present time, detailing what is going on with Mac's injuries, dealing with LoVe reuniting drama, learning more about Mac's life, etc. This is very much AU.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This was a really lovely story, and felt very in-character. I watched pretty much every Land Before Time sequel growing up (and the first one, over and over) and this is a good, well-written explanation for Cera's own loss and the strength of her and Littlefoot's friendship.

    Well done.
