    Summary

    Circa 1860, Lakota Sioux warrior Sandor Three Hounds and his brother, Bronn Blackwater discover English immigrant settlers Sansa Stark and Margaery Tyrell alone on the plains after a Pawnee attack on their wagon train.

    Please be aware that as a member of the Lakota Sioux nation, I have taken the utmost care in writing this story in a respectful, sensitive manner. This means that there are some historically accurate yet morally questionable behavior portrayed here, but I warn for it as use and asterisk (*) for people who want to skip it.

    I have included many explanations of the cultural and religious history of the Lakota people as well as translations of the language. This story is loosely based on an experience in my own family history.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to drop me a note in the comments and I will respond ASAP. :D

    Summary

    Alexander needs to win. It's not just the competitve streak that compels him, but a real need to keep the freedom that has been so grudgingly granted by the Russian Federation. As an Omega, he should have been locked up at home, bearing kits for the next generation of the Russian elite. But he was too skilled and the government granted him his freedom with a caveat to bring honour to the motherland before he hit thirty.

    But despite his personal best efforts, he's still not brought the glory that Russia craves and needs in uncertain times. He gets one last shot at the World's and despite getting a silver, Alex's future is in the balance.

    But an attempted assault at a club has Sidney Crosby stepping in to save him.

    In more ways than he ever thought possible.

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    Karkat, opening for him, glared until he spied his not really injured but definitely pitiful state. And rolled his eyes. "I knew you wanted to learn troll customs, but getting here like any other troll through ' hardships untold' or whatever, is ridiculous." Or, in Karkat-ese, you idiot, you're not bleeding to death and I can't tell if you're injured, but you look fine to me. "Get your fat sack seat inside."

    Summary

    When Miki excitedly dragged him to meet the clan that accepted them, Imaizumi was understandably skeptical. They looked more ragtag than professional – among them was a flustered moogle gadgeteer blinking through gigantic goggles, and the shortest bangaa he'd ever met, clad in gaudy red-lacquered dragoon armor – though their leader was a capable-looking hume paladin with rose-tinted glasses.

    Imaizumi's cool gaze flicked to the lone viera slouching toward the back, and felt a flicker of solidarity. He thought perhaps they would understand each other best, being a pair of male-spirit outcasts.

    Summary

    Now, he was stranded on some alien planet, at the mercy of some strange creature that was either trying to help him or going about some freaky ritual of flirting with your food before you eat it.

    Also, aliens have sunglasses. Because why the fuck wouldn't aliens have sunglasses.

    Summary

    AU where the Mirkwood elves are basically a myth. People know that there is something living in the forest (the barrels coming down the river) and that there is supposedly a magnificent fortress deep in the forest, full of gold and gems. But no one has seen them, save for the occasional lost traveler. Those who dare venture into the forest speak of strange, eerie wails and screams, said to be the souls of the corrupted who died in the cursed wood. The other elven realms speak of them in hushed whispers, as tales said to frighten small elflings. They say that in ancient times, near the start of elven memory, their first king, Oropher, awoke a great evil in the forest of Mirkwood, and to placate it he bound himself and his people to live in the wood for eternity, watched over by the dark. What will happen when a Mirkwood elf arrives in Rivendell? And what is the secret of the Mirkwood elves?
