    Summary

    Thrawn has a unique opportunity to observe and influence an isolate culture of one. For an art collector, it's a dream come true; and, as time goes on, he finds he is enjoying more than just patronage of an artist of unique circumstance. Rose escaped slavery in the Outer Rim and found haven on a backwater planet undiscovered by the rest of the galaxy. Art is his solace, his purpose, and his pleasure; and, one day, he suddenly finds himself with a mysterious patron, who slowly, over the course of the next decade, goes from mere patron to best belovéd. But when Thrawn's peers try to use Rose to create a scandal, Rose's hermitage is destroyed, and Thrawn begins to find out his little artist is so much more than that.

    This is a romantic adventure that focuses on the more private side of the Imperial characters, and specifically the character of Thrawn. Canon will be altered according to the author's needs and opinions on said canon.

    Summary

    "In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity." ~Sun Tzu

    Part One: Though Darth Nox and Darth Marr have had an occasionally contentious working relationship since she became a Councilor, they formed an alliance after Nox saved Makeb for the Empire, and find themselves in a surprising situation on Rishi. Neither of them are quite sure how to deal with the more serious feelings that have sprung from what was originally harmless diversionary entertainment. (Chapters 1-27)

    Part Two: It is a time of upheaval. Kryn and Marr are overseeing the restructuring of the Empire after the destruction of Ziost. They are determined to stop the mad former Emperor before he can strike again, contending with enemies both internal and external as they guide the Empire toward stability.

    Part Three: Coming Soon!

    Contains all the fun stuff in Star Wars - action, humor, romance, snark, lightsabers.

    (Updates roughly every two weeks, barring real life interference.)

    Summary

    There is no magic left in Thedas.

    The modern age is grim, governments and organizations that have lingered for centuries clinging by a thread. People are angry, their leaders refusing to give up tradition. The Wardens are arbiters of judgment, now called in to Ferelden. Civil unrest is imminent.

    Sadly, the mediation at Ostagar failed. Only three Wardens, two barely sworn in, managed to survive a bombing that destroyed what may be the last chance for peace. Ferelden is on the brink of war, and now has no leader but a queen none will listen to, her father manipulating from the shadows.

    Duran Aeducan and Elissa Cousland have recently parted ways, he to go see if the situation in Orzammar is as dire now as they fear, and she to try and request the aid of the Templars, to try and find a way to put an end to the war that is seconds from beginning. While on the road to Lothering, Cousland has discovered another fugitive from the law, far too much like herself. Conscripting Darian Tabris might save his life, just as Duncan had saved her.

    Little do they know, as they head to Lothering, and then on to Calenhad, that they are being tracked. Someone else is trying to find them, and needs their help.

    Summary

    Remus grew red in the face. His voice rose as he spoke, “This is illegal. They cannot be made to do this. It goes against Wizarding culture, and centuries of tradition. It goes against common fucking sense. What more will they ask of them? What more, Sirius?”

    Harry looked to Hermione as she took the letter. The communication that passed them was swift and silent. They had been through one war, and if fate brought them another, so mote it be. His pulse was steady, and Harry found that the worry and confusion was fading away, giving rise to a need to take action in the face of this unnamed foe.

    The confident look on her face faded as she scanned the official letter quickly. Harry didn’t like the fear that bloomed in her eyes.

    She looked up, and Harry wasn’t sure he had heard her properly when she said, “I have to get married.”
