Alright, what did I forget? I wrote this while half-asleep and avoiding other work, so I'm sure there are things I dumbly left out. Keep in mind that these are the important things, the most Ellaran things, not just random lives of various peoples. Things that have blatantly Ellaran themes or that were definitive lives.

Comments

Right, here it goes again. (As I accidentally deleted my first comment.)

Everything Sarah Brightman ever put on a CD. Indeed. ::giggle:: I can't wait until other Cousins get into the music and/or theatre industry.

You definitely forgot Days of the Alliance, Wild-Eyed, and Maiden of Rohan.
Also you might consider Susan Kay's Phantom, which is a good source on him, though not on me. But then, MoA is a good source on some of us and not on others. (Compare Kay's treatment of Christine to MZB's treatment of Ariadne.)
Nightwish: Beauty of the Beast, Sleepwalker, and Forever Yours. (Song about the eternal search for your soulmate and also about the world being a play and/or musical.)
You might also think of cross-referencing it by Cousin or Champion or just listing who was involved in parentheses behind the author's name if the work is focused on a life.
Oh, rats, I had meant to put DotA up on there... I'd left Wild-Eyed and Maiden of Rohan off intentionally, as those were lives but not thoroughly definitive ones. I mean, Abelyn was training and the only thing I got out of Cassandra of Troy was the lovely addition of Adrian to my cast of characters. But DotA really needs to be there, duh, that is probably the definitive life...

And I probably will cross-reference it on the actual website (provided I ever get it up), mostly because I like cross-referencing things. I actually want to make a big chart --

Name of Work -- Reliable Source On -- Okay Source On -- Weak Source On

Etc.
Oooh. I like charts.
