    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

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.

    Work in progress.

    Summary

    Derek’s protests dried up in his throat as Laura’s eyes bled red, but he rolled his eyes and huffed out, “Fine,” knowing full well he was being childish and not caring. All the complaining she did about his taciturnity, and then cutting him off the one time it really mattered. Well, Laura could hardly blame him for the inevitable failure of his so-called marriage if she wouldn’t even let him talk long enough to tell her he had never once felt attraction to a woman.

    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.
