Sutcliff Swap is a multifandom exchange for canon-era fanfiction and fanart based on the childrens' and adult novels and short stories of British historical fiction author Rosemary Sutcliff. While perhaps best known for her novels of Roman Britain, Sutcliff's works spanned settings from c. 2000-1000 BCE to the 19th century Ottoman Empire.
Also, the list of books with LGBT characters has been updated
Felicity, A Great and Terrible Beauty

Love YA lit? Love writing fic? Love writing fic for YA lit and wondering why there doesn’t seem to be very much for most books?
Join the YAlit100 challenge!
- You MAY claim more than one table at a time.
- You MAY do crossovers, fusions, and AU fic! If you intend to write crossovers and/or fusions, claim the table for the MAIN WORK (so, for example, if you want to write 100 godly-parent-fusion fics, your claim would be “Percy Jackson,” unless all 100 fics would star characters from Anna and the French Kiss or something. SOME ASPECT of all 100 fics must be constant for the book/table you choose!)
- Fics can be ANY LENGTH. You may write 3-sentence fics, drabbles, one-shots, six-word-ficfests, whatever. The whole point is just to encourage more YA lit fic! :)
So far, there are just the first few tables up, but I will be adding my usual amount of ALL THE YA BOOKS. :P Join and/or Watch the
comm on LJ for updates, and make sure to suggest any book(s) that you may think I’ll miss or that you want to see sooner!
She's most famous - as I'm sure people here will know - for her Wolves of Willoughby Chase sequence of AU historical YA fiction, although she also wrote adult suspense & historical stories, Jane Austen prequels & sequels, fairy tales & retellings, the Felix Trilogy, Arabel & Mortimer and more.
I also made a bunch of Midnight Is A Place icons to start things off - a mix of icons from the 1970s TV serial, and quotes from the book itself:

Notes: First begun as a reponse to a prompt in riventhorn's Happy Gay Farmers post last month, "a storm's coming." With grateful thanks to samjohnsson for uber beta skills.
It was as if Esca knew Marcus was looking at him, as if he bent and flexed with purpose to distract Marcus from his work and draw Marcus' focus to the slope of Esca's back, the spray of freckles across his shoulder. Marcus knew every part of him, from the frantic exploration atop a horse blanket in the hills of the North to the slow, fire-drenched coupling of their first days in their bothy, on their land, their home.
