    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

    What if on that night of the third Triwizard task, Tom Riddle realized Harry Potter was his horcrux? What if he decided to keep Harry instead of killing him?

    Wisked away from the Order's control Harry becomes captive to a monster, a beast. Things are not as they seem, enemies become allies and old friendships become poisoned. Harry is pulled in two directions, one that promises loneliness in freedom and the other promises family in captivity. Deprived of love as a child, how can he choose anything but family and yet his heart yearns for freedom.

    Can the green eyed wizard be the beauty to Tom's beast? Or will Tom's darkness once and for all consume and utterly destroy the boy who lived?

    Summary

    It's been two years since the tremendous mess that was Latibaer, when Glanni ended up having to escape federal custody, and he's just trying to live his life. Really he is. A grift here, a spot of cat-burglary there--nothing very wide-scale, you understand, just enough to keep himself in relative comfort. And it's going fairly well until the elf shows up again, at which point the political intrigue starts. Because that's fun.

    Summary

    Kylo Ren has finally everything he ever wanted. He is the leader of a new empire. Snoke and The Resistance are no more and even his former oponent, Rey, was captured by pirates and offered to him as a gift. Nothing should stand in his way in bending the galaxy to his will.

    Yet, things prove more frustrating than expected. He struggles to impose his political domination and Rey has been acting oddly docile. Is she pretending or did the Jedi really change that much?

    Summary

    After a particularly difficult case hits too close to home, how much longer can Lucifer and Chloe fight their attraction for one another? What happens when they find that they don't really want to? *NOTE- written prior to the season two premier, apologies for slight cannon divergence regarding Detective Douche =^.^=
    P.S. ~ I'm thinking that I'm ready to write another Lucifer fic (not a sequel yet) (probably), but in need of a prompt. If you enjoy this story, let me know and give me your ideas!

    She didn't have need for an assassin, but she couldn't very well reject the gift without angering the Serkonos regency. They were a traditional people with a traditional mind. She'd have to work around it. (A take on how Corvo Attano came to be the Royal Protector and the object of Jessamine's heart.)

    Summary

    King Rhaegar ushers in a new era of Targaryen rule just as winter comes. As he attempts to regain lost trust between the crown and his kingdoms, intrigue and scandal make themselves known that threaten the very precarious balance he seeks to build in his realm.

    Lyanna Stark, sixteen, is two years a wife, one year a mother, and a newly made queen. She is still exploring the waters of married life while she struggles with the demands of queenship; as she wades the gap between child and woman, the young queen must learn to adapt, and quickly, lest the ambitions of others threaten to topple her before she has even begun.

    Winter is coming and the worst of plots begin to come to a boil; if the couple hope to survive, they must brace themselves, for better or for worse.

    (This fic is a continuation of another; see notes for details).

    Summary

    Mary would have been a force to be reckoned with, were it not for the forces that conspired against her. Her heart made her weak and vulnerable, and her love interests left her broken more than once. What would have happened in Scotland and France if Mary were born a boy who grew into a king? How would the people around her have been effected? Most importantly, will Scotland survive under the rule of someone who Elizabeth desperately wants dead, even more than she ever wanted Mary to be?

    **Sidenote: Mary's mothers' name is Mary, so when you see the name Mary, that's who I'm talking about.

    Summary

    A fantasy world of boys on generic magical quests getting distracted by other boys. Or, a world in which I subvert, upend, break or otherwise fuck around with the tropes of the epic fantasy genre, primarily by adding lots of gayness.

    All set in the same world and the same timeline, so there is overlap in themes, places, supporting characters, etc. between stories. However, the stories are all independent of one another and have their own plots and storylines. My goal is that a reader can read any or all of the stories in which they are interested and skip those in which they are not without missing out on the overall story.

    The first nine stories constitute the main series, and anything beyond that, while also part of the series and set in the same world, generally won't be part of the main chronology.

    I'm also posting the series on my tumblr just for fun. Feel free to come and talk to me about it if you like! :)
