End of year fic wrap up!

Woohoo. This is so late, but I've had a busy New Year, and this is possibly even longer and ramblier than usual.

First off, my Yuletide fic!

Songs for the Unsung (1607 words) by thedeadparrot
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Bastion
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Zia (Bastion), The Kid (Bastion), Rucks (Bastion), Zulf (Bastion)
Summary: This story I'm about to tell you ain't much like the Kid's stories of the Calamity. No windbags, no peckers, no anklegators. No fightin' at all, when you get right down to it. But it still got meaning all the same.

This was super fun to write. The distinctiveness of Rucks's narration has such a big impact on the game, and trying to imitate that in writing can be really difficult. I'm not particularly well-versed in first person, so this was a great challenge for me.
