    Summary

    "And even though it all went wrong/I'll stand before the Lord of Song/With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah…"

    For Severus Snape, playing music held as just much enchantment as performing actual magic. But how and why did he learn to play the piano? A life told through song as a homage to the genius of Leonard Cohen and Alan Rickman.

    Written as part of the 2017 Snapecase Fest on LJ.

    Summary

    Fayrl Indoril, a Dunmer assassin from the second era, and Ma’zurah, a Khajiiti mage from the third era make an unlikely team, but when they find themselves thrown together in fourth era Skyrim, it’s all they can do to survive and figure out what in Oblivion is going on.

    An attempt to expand upon the physical world of The Elder Scrolls, portray NPCs with three dimensional personalities, provide alternative and common-sense solutions to the problems of Skyrim, depict real-life consequences to trivial bits of Elder Scrolls lore, and create an emotionally authentic, character driven narrative all at once.

    Contains mature content, including graphic depictions of sexual and violent acts--sometimes at the same time. Sorry, the Mephala worshipper insisted.

    Summary

    Rather than submitting to the Inquisition when his plan to alter time fails, Gereon Alexius casts a spell to escape with Felix. Fuelled by the unstable Veil and the magister's pained desperation, the spell blows out of proportion and transports the father and son to a completely different realm, which seems to be experiencing quite a Dragon Age of its own.

    Summary

    Akira Kurusu was a sixteen-year-old boy arrested for a crime he did not commit. Convicted of assaulting a man, expelled from his school, and put on probation, he must attend Shujin Academy in the city Shibuya for one year. If he makes it through his probation, he has the chance of having his record wiped clean and being able to live a normal life. If not, he can say goodbye to his future.

    It should have been a year he could breeze through, working to change hearts and reform society. However, his life was not an urban fantasy. In this world, there are no palaces, no changing hearts, no Persona, and while there are cats, they don't talk. How is Akira going to survive a year in a school that has no qualms about making it clear he's not welcome? Is he going to survive at all? If he wants to even hope for a future, he'll have to try.

    Summary

    Synnove will gladly admit that she’s not comfortable with killing people. As much as she despises the nobles that live on the Isles, they’re really her only source of income, so killing them would be a waste, as she’d have no one left to loot and rob for money and supplies. It was this quality that first gained his attention, only to then pull him further into his curiosity when he discovered the purpose behind it. When she said she would get something done, she was determined to do it, but he'd be damned if he didn't at least give her a helping hand.

    Summary

    The first stones in the path of Thorin Oakenshield's Quest for Erebor were laid centuries before his birth, and some of the last ripples of influence were made by the pebble who would become his mother.
    Darkness is creeping back into the world, ever so slowly, and the Past casts long shadows in the hearts of Dwarrow, Men, and Elves.

    Follow the Quest as it unfolds, as choices made long ago come back to haunt the footsteps of those who are not even aware they once existed. Some stories, which should have been told, are kept secret, but some secrets do not remain so; however well-meaning their keepers.

    "Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

    With a little understanding, a touch of mercy, many things might be different in the lives of the Children of Mahal.
    A story of courage, love, and consequences.
    In this, I've been told to say, you'll find a bit of everything, and if it's not already here, it'll be elsewhere in my works.

    This story focuses on the events of the Hobbit, with a multitude of side-stories forming the rest of the series.

     
    For Azi, who always loved a good story and enjoyed the previews enough for me to post it here. I hope you like it, ye crazy Scotsman!
