    Summary

    They tell him that all Hylian men keep their hair this short, and that only their women grow it long.

    “I’m neither Hylian nor a woman,” he argues, though he does not resist the hands that wield the scissors. “They will never take me for either. What does it matter how I appear to them?”

    (OoT-specific.)

    Summary

    Karkat Vantas always accepted the fact that he was not going to live passed nine sweeps. It was just a certainty of his sad, miserable life. At least, that was until his friends found out and decided to hatch a plan to get him out of the Alternian empire. A plan that actually worked.

    Now, he was stranded on an 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

    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

    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

    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
