    Summary

    In the Shire, hobbits say, "What lovely weather we've having." They also stir their teacups for four and a half clockwise rotations, place their left elbow seven-eighths down the way of the arm rest, and sniffled pointedly, which roughly translates to: "This tea is over-steeped and bland, your furniture is both uncomfortable and horrifically tasteless, and you're a twit of a host."
    And I think that's beautiful.
    ~
    Hobbitish is a language of manners and etiquette, the dwarves don't even know that Hobbitish is a thing, and Bilbo is trying to keep a straight face and his peace of mind while the Company unintentionally keeps sexually propositioning him and challenging him to pie-eating contests to the death.
    ~
    Actions speak so much louder than words.

    Summary

    The entire walk back from the alienage, all she can think of is the smell. Sweat, waste, damp, decay—the smells of a city. It’s a foreign smell that’s become too familiar, and the familiarity makes her stomach churn as much as the smothering press of people, the ambient clatter of too-heavy footsteps and wheels and voices (above all, voices), and the weight of her kinsmen’s despair. Not even the estate will block it out. She needs green, true green, and the vhenadahl will not suffice. So, after delivering her evidence, she returns to her room and trades her dragon leather for deerskin, Starfang for her dar’misu, and leaves.

    A tale of bonds formed, bonds severed, and the inevitable emotional crisis that occurs when you're the current Last and Best Hope of Thedas.

    Summary

    Part 3 of The McClary Chronicles - picks up three months after the end of Samhach Mhiannan, with Molly making a life changing decision for herself and newborn Pod...and by extension, King McClary, the cranky Scotsman who has returned to his home in the Highlands without her. Nobody ever said true love was an easy path to walk, but Molly's got a good sturdy pair of hiking boots this time around. Which one will beg for mercy first: the determined mother of the next King of Claighe, or the current king himself?

    The title, Na Binne an Leann, means "The Sweeter the Ale" - which is the second part of an old Scottish saying that I just totally made up for this story. The whole quote goes "An teotha na grùdaireachd na binne an leann", which translates to "The hotter the brewing, the sweeter the ale"....meaning basically "the more you go through to be together, the stronger your love will be."

    Summary


    That's the world. Everything you build, it tears down. Everything you've got, it takes. And it's gone forever. The only choices you get are to lie down and die or keep going. He kept going. That's as close to beating the world as anyone gets. – Varric Tethras, Dragon Age: Inquisition

     

     
    I should start this by saying, I really should have known better. There was no such thing as coincidence or accidents, especially not when you recognized the world around you as something from a game that people used to play.

    Perhaps my first clue should have been that, that I remembered such a world existed. But it wasn’t.

    Never underestimate the power of denial.

    Summary

    When we first met Kevin, in an orphanage outside Moscow, we couldn't believe our luck. Like most international adoptive parents, we'd come to Russia on the strength of a promise and one picture: a skinny blond boy with big blue-green eyes, scowling endearingly at the camera....

    Summary

    Penny Holbrooke is shocked to find her application has been approved for the position of Muggle Studies professor at Hogwarts. As a barely-magical squib, her prospects in the magical world are slim, and such a position would mean an intense boost for her social standing. She accepts, but with the remnants of the Second Wizarding War still aloft about the school, tensions are skyrocketing and Penny doesn't know if she'll make it through the year with her wits about her; a certain discourteous potions master really isn't helping the matter, either.

    All at once, a new prophecy is afoot, and suddenly Penny and the entire wizarding world have everything to lose.
