    Summary

    All Gwaine wanted was to find out Merlin's last name. He wasn't expecting to get caught up in assassinations and intrigue, in prophecy and fate, or in a silent war that had apparently been going on since before he came to Camelot.

    With witch-finders and sorcerers of unknown loyalties running through the halls of Camelot, will Gwaine's own past make or break his friendships... especially when Merlin's biggest secret is revealed?

    Truths will come to light. Brotherhoods will be tested. And, in the end, will anyone's secrets be safe?

    Summary

    NEW SUMMARY

    Forget what you think you know. Forget what you have been taught to believe. Trust no one.
    Captain Kirk and his crew are once more being used as pawns in the game of power. At stake is the Federation itself, as well as something far more precious to James T. Kirk.
    Spock.

    OLD SUMMARY
    Politics and ideology come together and force Spock to confront the darkest chapter of his past. This is a story about the people Spock loves most and the lengths to which they will go to protect him. This is a story about family and the chains of blood and love and fear and faith that hold it together.

    (This will end up being a novel-length fic, if any readers have additional tag suggestions that would be very much appreciated.)

    Summary

    On the eve of Lysa's giving birth to the next Lord Arryn, Jon Arryn awakes to discover that he's not just Jon Arryn anymore, but instead has had his mind merged with, Seven help him, an ASOIAF geek.

    Salamon2 has been inserted into Jon Arryn's head in the year 292 AC. Will he be able to "build a better Westeros" as the logic of Self-Insert stories demands (with of course copious amount of details given to the how-to aspect of construction and innovation), all while preventing the events from A Game of Thrones from occurring? Or will his genre savvy self and love of literary criticism by Northrop Frye doom him to instead satirize the genre of self-insert stories? The latter is the answer, oh most definitely the latter.

    Summary

    Everyone wanted to be the Alice. To have a chance to spend a year in Wonderland and potentially save their kingdom. If they were the True Alice, then they would be able to stay in Wonderland forever. If not, at the end of a year, the Jabberwock would devour them whole.

    Jensen never expected to be chosen to be the Alice. But he was. And even as he tries to fit in to his new role, he begins to feel all is not quite right in Wonderland. One overheard conversation will lead him down a twisting path in search of the truth. He'll have to deal with the flirty Queen of Hearts Danneel, the baffling Caterpillar Misha, as well as his reluctant partner in crime, the surly Cheshire Cat Jared, who Jensen just might have feelings for.

    Summary

    Castiel's spent most of his adult life keeping his head down and staying out of trouble. This is a deliberate choice on his part, because as a cousin of the King, he'd rather stay unimportant and forgotten. This changes abruptly when King Michael decides that he has a better use for Castiel: he is to be wed to a noble member of the neighboring Republic, as part of an agreement between their two nations.

    Castiel knows he has to obey, but that doesn't mean he won't rebel in what small ways he can. Unexpectedly, his actions end up having far-reaching consequences.

    Summary

    Excerpt from 'The Life and Times of King Charles the Third', volume XI of the 'Histories of Westchester':

    They say that his birth was foretold by the Great Seer of this Age, an omega child born unto the House of Xavier and most beloved of the gods. Powerful amongst the Gifted Ones the child will grow to rule a kingdom mighty and vast, a legacy of dominion over land and sea. That he will be beautiful beyond mortal countenance and desired by all who see his face. Empires will fall by his command and kings by his design; the world torn asunder by war and then made new from its ashes.

    These are the words that herald the arrival of Charles Francis Xavier, 124th of the line of Xavier and heir to the throne of Westchester.

    This is his story.

    Summary

    The British Championships are done and dusted, the team's been selected, and now the formal IOC registration deadline has passed, yet Kil's still running Merlin's training sessions like he's heading to Rio. All he'll say – even when Merlin screams at him in exhausted frustration, threatening to elope with a litre of vodka and a tub of raspberry ripple – is, "Patience, young man. You cannot give up on a journey before it's truly begun."
