    Summary

    He's always been a romantic. Cullen Rutherford decided at eight years old that he was going to be a knight, even though he had no clue as to why knights were needed. He learned that lesson the hard way and now he's unlearning what was wrong in that lesson while learning to embrace that inner romantic again.

    A tenacious, silly pirate with her own scars stumbles into his path with the burden of all of Thedas on her shoulders. Together, they might be able to save the world while saving each other from themselves.

    Work in progress.

Atemu is a young lord summoned to court with orders from his overbearing mother to advance the family. Yugi Mutou, the Earl of Shrewsbury, is known as a devout man who hopes to influence the king enough to abandon his course to keep his country together. During such a tumultuous time, Atemu and Yugi fight to grow their forbidden relationship and escape from an increasingly dangerous court life that threatens to tear them apart.

    Three years after the coronation, a plot to overthrow the Emperor has been put into motion. Disguised as a noblewoman, Lan Fan plunges into the Xingese court—and into a courtship with the emperor himself. "You are my master," she said. "There is nothing that I will not do for you."

And in Winterfell, in the company of wolves, the Queen will use her charm to find a way in which she may avenge herself. Rhaella is willing to do anything to thwart her rival.

    Meanwhile, Rhaegar, the child-king, tries to navigate the treacherous court to the best of his abilities. He feigns the appropriate obedience and awe towards his Lord Hand and plans for a day when he shall be free of Tywin Lannister.

    AU! Rhaella sees the steel underneath the softness of Lyanna Stark and makes a queen.

    Summary

    Rhaegar Targaryen seeks a companion who will help, not hinder him. The very last thing he needs is an innocent to hang onto his sleeve and require his protection from the intrigues of court when he himself is planning to overthrow a king. It is his hope that a public show of affection will force his father's hand enough to cement a union between himself and the Dornish Princess.

    Given instead Lyanna of Winterfell, daughter of an until-recently reclusive house, the Prince watches all his plans go up in smoke as circumstances force him to declare for her and not for the partner he did want. Certain that his efforts will have to be doubled, the Crown Prince does not even conceive of consulting the maiden herself. It does not occur to him that there is more to Lady Lyanna than meets the eye.

    AU! Lyanna Stark finds herself playing with burning candles among kegs of wildfire.

    Summary

    "A new species is being born, Erik. Help me guide it, shape it… lead it."
    Despite the hundreds of years and endless wars that have passed, the G-d Emperor Magneto knows this was not how things were meant to be. The world he fought for was one that would compliment and protect the philosophers and the teachers-- men like Xavier.
    He was never meant to rule without Charles by his side.

     

    (A somewhat hazy Dune-fusion, featuring an Erik who has fought too long and hard to turn down the ultimate temptation. Post X3, but you know Charles won't stay gone for long. _Finally_, in chapter five!)

    Summary

    For the SNK Kink Meme: Tudors AU - one character is King Henry VIII. Set sometime after the coup or even a complete AU, I'm thinking either Erwin or Christa, but whatever inspires the writer. So character of your choice wants to secure their legacy, maybe they even go a little dark, and goes through six consorts. Can be het or slash, for the sake of this prompt yes I'm fine with the non traditional pregnancies. You can turn this prompt to just royalty and PWP if that helps.

    Obviously, Reiner is King Henry here. A bonus point was for Jean to be Anne of Cleves because Anne was "described by the king to look like a horse but [was] the only wife who managed to escape AND outlive the king", I didn't quite go for that.

    Summary

    Dragon Age Inquisition's greatest untold love story: Cassandra Pentaghast and Cullen Rutherford.
    Mainly follows the events as they unfold throughout the game, imagining that both characters rejected the Inquisitor because in their hearts they knew that someone else already held their affections.

    In response to a number of unfilled prompts on kinkmeme requesting romance/fluff/smut/sparring for these two.

    I will link to the relevant prompt as they appear in the story.

    This will be approx. 10 chapters long.

    UPDATE: Smut really starts from chapter 6 onwards if that's what you're here for :)
    NB the 'darker' tags are for chapter 9.

    UPDATE 12th May - chapter 12 is pure smut if that's what you're after ;)
