    Summary

    A follow up to my Cullen/Amell saga to get Alistair some attention and love.

    Alistair's life isn't all bad. He's King, he's got two kids he adores a wife he's vaguely aware exists. The only thing missing in that blissful domestic picture is someone to love. But all in all, things are weirdly working out for him.

    That all changes when assassins dare to come after him and his children on the little prince's naming day. With a threat daring to be so brash to attack the King, he takes on a personal bodyguard. Picked seemingly at random from the City Watch, Reiss thought she was little more than an average elf trying to make it in thedas. Now it's all on her to keep the King alive against this enigmatic threat, and try to ignore the fact she keeps blushing whenever he smiles.

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.

    Summary

    "Alright, that's it," Faraday shouts, no longer able to contain himself at the sight of Goodnight removing his jacket to put over Billy's shoulders. "How did you ever get away with pretending he's your servant?!"

    (Written to fulfill a prompt that says "I'm interested in reading about Goodnight treating Billy with an abundance of respect, like so much that it's almost overboard or a fetish level of it, like the way an Arthurian knight would treat a court lady. [...] Billy doesn't exactly get off on it but it seems to do something for Goody so he tolerates it or is amused by it.")

    Summary

    After the events in Kirkwall, Hawke finds herself reluctantly answering her best friend's request to help the Inquisition with what she has uncovered of Corypheus' plot. Driven by her sense of guilt over her part in the events that took place three years prior, she arrives at Skyhold to meet the Inquisitor.

    Not a complete retelling of Inquisition from Hawke's POV, as it will deviate after Adamant. Mildly AU in places, and will borrow characters from 'Last Flight' as well as Inquisition.

    Bioware owns the characters, and pretty much everything else. I'm just making mud pies in the sandbox. Updating will be sporadic.

    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

    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." He smiled then. "So why won't you kiss me, then, Lan Fan?"

    Summary

    Once upon a time a daring she-wolf extracted from a woodswitch precious knowledge of a hero to come. And with it, she promised to herself that the honour of carrying the seed of hope would be hers. Little did she know that the foreign words, too remote to touch, could ever bear the consequences they have.

    Or, Lyanna Stark makes the mistake of thinking that prophecies entail smooth sailing, when, quite the opposite, they bring griefs unnumbered.

    AU! The girl who believes in prophecies snares a reluctant prince who is not at all pleased to have been caught.

    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

    The arranged courtship of Chrom and Rajni, prince and princess of Ylisse and Plegia, respectively, is unfortunately littered with the rising political tensions between their two countries as well as Hoshido and Nohr due to recent technological advancements bringing to light fears of a war between major powers. Through this, Lucina and Shigure have come back in time to stop the invention of the functional time machine, which in their time is what begins the war that destroys the world. Between the courtship, the arms race, and the veritable shipload of dangerous machinations that are involved in politics between the four powerhouse countries of the region, it's hard to tell what's going to destroy the world first.

    Summary

    “This is rather unpleasant.” Lucius commented, “Please just say whatever is on your mind.”

    “Sirius. This has been bothering me for a while now, but which Malfoy did you snog?” Remus queried, Harry withheld the temptation to smack his forehead with the palm of his hand. Why couldn’t Remus leave this for a later date? It was such an awkward time.

    “Me.” Lucius and Narcissa answered at the same time, before looking at each other in shock. Sirius looked like he wanted to crawl into a hole and disappear. Harry just wasn’t surprised by anything anymore. And Remus looked like he was so done with everything.

    Summary

    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.

    It was not a lesson he enjoyed learning.

    Now, as Commander of the Inquisition, he atones for his foolishness and sin, struggling to rebuild himself as the man he should have been. As Thedas tears itself apart around them, Cullen and the Inquisitor--a cheerful pirate with scars of her own--find one another. Now he struggles to be worthy of himself and of his new love while they battle against an ancient evil.

    She is a candle in the darkness, standing bare in a raging storm.

    He must do everything in his power to keep that flame alight.

    Work in progress.
