Overview of Queen of Frost Trilogy

Frost arranges for the Circle to share Izzy, Simon, and Nadia, during which Sparrow gets to witness for the first time the life she's escaping thanks to Frost's interest in her. To really let it sink in, Frost lets Octavian proposition Sparrow after he's through with the other victors; when Sparrow turns him down, Frost demands that she "convince" him that she deserves to keep the special treatment he's been giving her. (Frost has no intentions of ever letting her go; Sparrow, however, realizes she can't risk it.)
At the beginning of the 126th Culling, Sparrow is introduced to the older victors for the first time. During the Culling, they are all expected to "reconnect with" the Circle and the other victors, regardless of their circumstances (marriage, kids, whatever). Simon, as usual, takes it upon himself to "protect" Sparrow and Nadia from everyone's advances, though Sparrow is the subject of considerable attention regardless. (And Frost makes it clear to her that she is welcome to sleep with any victors she pleases.)
When the 126th Culling ends, the Circle is surprised to find that their chosen victor, one of the female candidates, has lost to a dangerous, ruthless male candidate. Afterward, the Circle must decide what to do with this individual--break him down mentally until he's safe to use or arrange for his disposal. Sparrow advocates letting him go, if he's really that dangerous, but Frost reminds her that Nadia and Simon won't be able to get out until there are two replacements. If #126 is thrown out, they'll have to wait until after #128 is chosen.
Ultimately, they give #126 to Octavian for "training", and he seems to be broken by the time he's reintroduced to the Circle. But he's not. He's seduced Loretta, and he uses her to ambush Frost, Octavian, and Sparrow, whom he intends to murder. Loretta saves them at the last minute, killing #126 and cementing Loretta & Sparrow's friendship.

Sparrow (Queen of Frost #1)
Court of Glass (Queen of Frost #2)
Queen of Frost (Queen of Frost #3)


Major themes/elements:
• group relationship dynamics
• decadence & cruelty of nobility
• voyeurism & objectification

Re: group dynamics, the core group contains:
• Frost & Sparrow (alpha couple)
• Nadia & Simon (beta couple)
• Izzy, Suri, & Loretta (support)


In Sparrow, Severin becomes Sparrow's ally in her mission to escape from Parabellum, but she sends Suri with him in her place.

In Court of Glass, #126 takes Sparrow, Frost, and Octavian prisoner and tries to convince Sparrow to escape with him after he kills the men. She refuses, and #126 is killed.

In Queen of Frost, #127 turns out to be a mole. She captures Sparrow and takes her to the resistance, where she reunites with Severin and Suri before ultimately escaping.

At the end of the first two, Sparrow decides not to leave Frost. At the end of the last, she decides to return to Frost.

Parabellum: The Fourth Installment

I've had some ideas for potentially expanding the Parabellum series beyond the third installment. It would deal primarily with the fall-out of Simon's death, especially in terms of Nadia and Sparrow's emotional arcs. It introduces two new characters: Kieran Bell and Galen Freed.

Kieran is essentially conceptualized as an anti-Simon. He's the new victor of the year and quite physically similar to their late friend/lover... but in terms of personality, he's more in line with Izzy. He actually seems to enjoy being a victor; he's receptive to Octavian's advances and actively tries to pursue Sparrow, Frost, and Nadia.

On the other hand, there's Galen. He has a lot in common with Loretta; like her, he's the son of a Circle member, and as a recent inductee, his initial role is barely above that of a victor. Also like Loretta, he decides to aim for the very top, quickly setting his sights on Frost and Sparrow.

Though Sparrow initially dismisses Galen in favor of Kieran, her interest in the latter swiftly evaporates... And thanks to some urging from Loretta (and perhaps Damianus), the story should move steadily in the direction of Frost/Sparrow/Galen.

The first Cyborg movie featured a cyborg, but was not really interested in cyborgs. You could have replaced the cyborg with an ordinary human and it would not have made a difference. She was not even a main character, more of a McGuffin.

Cyborg 2, on the other hand, delivers on the cyborg front, while offering no continuity of characters or world-building with the first movie.

A young Angelina Jolie plays a cyborg intended as a weapon in corporate warfare: the company that built her wants to send her to a meet-up with their competitors, where the bomb inside her will be detonated. A mysterious man who communicates only through screens helps her to escape – along with her combat instructor, who has been looking up the penalties for sexual contact between humans and cyborgs. Together, they must escape to the one place in the world where unlicensed cyborgs can live freely.

Other cyborgs are sent in pursuit, including my favourite character, a vain cyborg assassin whose main concern is preserving his very expensive reconstructed face. There is a sort of robot underground, and a shantytown for those who have been junked. The people involved in this movie were clearly interested in robots! They ask the question, 'can there be love between man and machine?' and they answer, 'hell yes!'

I wouldn't say it's a good movie, or even a consistently entertaining one, but I can definitely appreciate what they were trying to do, and I'm glad we watched it.

(The third movie looks terrible but apparently involves ~cyborg pregnancy~ and also Malcolm McDowell so I think we'll be watching that one as well.)

[community profile] rarepairfest letter for [archiveofourown.org profile] laylah!

My theme for so much of this exchange is "oh my god I just wish this existed why isn't it out there???" so I would really be just delighted to see what you come up with for all these tiny underloved pairings. Thank you so much for offering one of them, by the way. Please treat my prompts as suggestions, not as requirements; if there's a story you're dying to tell about one of these pairings, I will read anything that skips my DNWs, so go for it.

General Yes Please: porn & kink (see my smutswap letter for more on my preferences there), adventures, fight scenes, monsters, fluff, playing with game mechanics, worldbuilding, nerding out about robots/demons/other sapient nonhuman perspectives.

General Not For Me Thanks: mundane AUs (high school, coffee shop, etc.), deathfic, kidfic, misunderstanding angst, hopeless endings, abusive relationships, bigotry or oppression as a major plot point, bigotry or oppression written into a setting where they haven't been shown to exist in canon, scat/vomit, infantilization, forced feminization.
