    Summary

    When Aerys Targaryen is slain in battle, his son becomes crown prince of the realm and upon the death of King Jaehaerys, Rhaegar Targaryen assumes kingship under the guidance of his lady mother. But the court is no place for lost babes.

    Tywin Lannister offers to help the Queen rein in the wayward subjects who seek to gain advantages from King Rhaegar's inexperience. For that he is made Hand of the King. However, with the birth of his daughter he demands a royal marriage as tithe for his services.

    The Queen's refusal sees her parted from her son and sent to the wild North to serve as bride for the widowed Rickard Stark, head of House Stark. 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

    The death of Elia Martell at the hands of common thieves sends the realm in turmoil. On the one hand, Dorne is convinced it was a ploy of the Lord Hand, whose opposition of the marriage between the heir to the throne and the Dornish Princess was well known. Prince Oberyn Martell is especially interested in seeing justice done.

    On the other hand, the bereaved husband, Prince of the Seven Kingdoms and heir to the throne, has been left without a spouse. It is Rhaegar Targaryen’s duty to choose for himself another maiden from the ranks of the Westerosi nobility. As if to confirm the suspicions of the Dornish party, Lord Tywin Lannister presses to have his as the chosen one.

    The spirited daughter of the Warden of the North somehow manages to land herself in the middle of it all. Lyanna Stark had little intention of pursuing anything other than her horse riding and attempting to convince her father that she should not be given in marriage to her brother’s friend when news reaches Winterfell of the Princess’ death.

    All her troubles suddenly vanish only to be replaced by ones far more dangerous when she catches the eye of the heir apparent at a tourney.

    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 ;)

    Summary

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.

    Summary

    Sansa Stark has heard much of the King Rhaegar, but has yet to meet him. When he announces that he will accompany his wife, Lyanna, to the North for a visit, Sansa finds she is much anxious to meet him, and that the King seemed to feel the same.

    No Robert's Rebellion here, just a peaceful ascension of Rhaegar to the throne with Lyanna as his one and only wife. Takes place in Winterfell and told from Sansa's POV. Completely AU, completely wild and spontaneous idea.

However, trouble seems to follow the imposing but gentle-hearted lady Leuna wherever she goes, and there's the added complication that she knows more about the knightly protocols than about life and romance, although she does seem eager to learn...
