My final Yuletide story (others are described in separate posts below) was a very last-minute "stocking stuffer," The Rose of Naamah, for Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series.

WARNING: Contains graphic sex and extreme masochism. (No more extreme than in the books, though.)

The story doesn’t spoil anything in the books. In a world where prostitution can be something of a holy calling, Phedre is touched by the Gods: she is an anguisette, a kind of super-masochist. She and Alcuin are both wards of Delaunay, and are in their late teens when the story takes place; Melisande is a sadist whom Phedre has a massive crush on. That’s all you need to know to read the story.

It was written for [livejournal.com profile] deifire, who asked for Phedre and Melisande, and said that she was tempted to request "as smutty as possible"-- a very reasonable suggestion given the content of the books, by the way.

Mild spoilers for the story itself below the cut.
