    Summary

    What if Boromir didn't receive the dream-summons and so stayed in Minas Tirith and Faramir went north instead? PG warning: this is a hard tale, but not a dark one. At crucial times, characters in LotR react instead of act. For example, when the Fellowship splits and the return of the king. Using the branch point of Boromir's dream I was able to examine both of these important choices. 

    This commentary AU is tersely written. It is primarily a bookverse story. Because I make large jumps when my timeline matches the original closely, this is intended for readers well familiar with the Ring War trilogy. Comments and typo catches are welcome.

    Summary

    Aveva gli occhi blu - non ne aveva mai visti di quel colore e i capelli neri, tagliati cortissimi; sembrava un pulcino spelacchiato e indossava un paio di pantaloni corti con sopra una maglietta. «... Cosciè?» «Un castello!» esclamò orgoglioso, rimettendosi in piedi e notando che era più basso di lui – doveva anche essere più piccolo, visto il tono che aveva osato. «Non lo sciembra.» Tooru sbuffò. «Certo che no, non è ancora finito!»

    Summary

    Margaery never met Robb Stark, but she wonders about him more often than she thinks she should. No harm now, of course, now she’ll never know him.

    But they said he looked like his sister, his sweet, scared sister with her downcast eyes and flame hair. They said he had a direwolf at his side, as tall as a horse with terrible teeth and claws. They said he was merciful to those deserving. They said he was vengeance personified. They said he was never going to die - of course, until he did.

    Summary

    Many years ago, sickness took the young Avatar Roku when she was only a child, leaving her best friend Sozin to grow up alone. On the day of the hundred-year comet, Sozin, then Fire Lord, harnessed its energy to wipe out the Air Nomads, and shatter the balance of the world. For nearly a hundred years, the Fire Nation has oppressed and divided the remaining bending nations.

    Now, Aang, a young airbender and former student of Avatar Gyatso himself, has awoken from a hundred year slumber to a world ravaged by war. Though he is only a child, Aang's destiny is clear - as the last airbender, it is his destiny to teach the current Avatar, to help them realize their full power and allow them to end the war, once and for all.

    He just has to find them first.

    Summary

    "Murphy comes up with the sketchbook idea, which, considering he’s a psychopath, should probably be reason enough for Bellamy to smell danger and give up on the whole thing. But he’s at a loss, and Clarke’s birthday quickly approaches, what else is he supposed to do?" (Set in some random imaginary time frame set after Finn's death but before Bellamy got sent to Mount Weather. Bending canon to make room for my fluffy Bellarke needs like a boss.)
