    Summary

    "'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

    A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

    All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

    Formerly posted as "Life Prison." Includes an illustration by Everybery in the end notes. This novel was a runner-up in the Gay Fantasy category of the Rainbow Awards 2014.

    Summary

    "It's all about torture. That's what I didn't understand for a long time. The High Seeker has been seeking out and punishing those of us who wish to show greater mercy to the prisoners than the Code allows. Those of us who question whether it's right to torture prisoners."

    The Eternal Dungeon is no longer a prison. It's a battlefield.

    Split apart from their closest loves and friends, a small group of prison-workers seek to abolish the use of torture against prisoners in the queendom's royal dungeon. Time is running out, for the deadly High Seeker has already flogged and executed prison-workers who oppose his policies.

    Do the reformers have enough time and skill to bring about radical change in the dungeon? Will they be able to overcome their mistrust of one another?

    I'm serializing this novel weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    AU/Continuation, unavoidable spoilers. The story didn't end when the two finally got together. When dark forces emerge from the depths to threaten mankind, one will learn that she is more than who or what she thought she was. For when it was said, years ago, that one might encounter something not quite human at twilight, all present might be forgiven for not considering that the entity in question might be oneself. OC x natural born Pacific!Iowa

    Summary

    "Fairview was the finest friend a man could have, and the finest battle-companion. I dared not risk doing anything that might break our friendship."

    On a hot summer's day, on a high hill surrounded by the enemy, the best battle-companion can turn out to be the truth.

    Rook and Fairview have worked alongside each other for years, first as officers in the navy, then as officers on a steamship, and finally as colonels in an invading army. Members of a nation where tiny differences in rank are considered all-important, the two men defy convention by treating each other as equals.

    But now their life-long bond is about to meet its greatest strain, when they are ordered to seize and defend a hill whose landscape is unknown, in the company of soldiers who may be incompetent or treacherous. Will Rook and Fairview's friendship remain by the end of the battle? Or will their lives take an unexpected detour as they struggle to survive on Spy Hill?

    Summary

    “If you don’t know what you’re living for, you haven’t yet lived.” – Rabbi Noah Weinberg

    Modern College & Political AU. Tywin Lannister, head of Lannister Industries, has fought Ned Stark’s attempts to derail oil business policy in New York for over a decade. When rumor spreads that Ned will run for state senator, Tywin hires his former lobbyist, Professor Baelish, to woo and use Ned’s naïve freshman daughter in attempt to sabotage his campaign. Lectures in politics become a taboo romance, makeouts in the back office, awkward shabbat dinners and moral dilemmas. And, as they say, “shit happens.”

    This fic is sweltering-hot cheese in a fondue pot. Take it. Eat it. Love it.

    Summary

    Ten knows, or at least assumes, that there isn't supposed to be a thought process behind love. You stumble upon it by an act of serendipity and then throw yourself into it wholeheartedly, no second thoughts, no backward glances. Love isn't stilted- it’s built on desultory, meandering conversations, spontaneity, happy accidents.

    (Or: it's the summer after his senior year, and Ten is running away from his problems. In an effort to get away from his smothering boyfriend Yoonoh, he goes all the way to a tiny beach town in Delaware, tasked with helping his estranged aunt for the summer. The point of his trip was to make his life less complicated, but a clumsy lifeguard named Johnny throws a wrench into everything.)
