    Summary

    “Why’d you stay here? Why’d Merl — Arthur not have you on their arses the second you were discharged from the A&E?”

    “He wanted to,” she tells him gravely, trying to push the cup of orange juice the nurse had left into his hand.

    “And you…?”

    Roxy shrugs, and when he sticks her with that I’m not buying your bullshit gaze, she rolls her eyes. “And I was busy calling the doctors all sorts of names. They wouldn’t let me in to visit.”

    They leave it at that.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Easily one of the better post-film 'fics. Works through the future of its characters intelligently, and handles its relationship deftly rather than being overeager about it.

    Summary

    "It is such a quiet thing, to fall. But far more terrible is to admit it."

    What does the Exile want? Why does she extend her hands in charity one moment and deal out death the next? Her mind is a cipher, her actions inscrutable. This is the first volume in the story of those who traveled with her on the long and winding road to Malachor, the beginning and the end.

    Some really good takes on Cait and Vi. I think the Jinx vignette is excellently written particularly.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    An adorable Polly, and a nice continuation from the book. Not aiming quite for Pratchett's style, but there's daedalic little flashes of it to keep you grounded in the Discworld feel. And if it isn't in the same style, it still seems to have the *idea* of Monstrous Regiment down pat.

    Summary

    A mysterious stranger is found in the wilds near Oerba. By all rights, she should have been put to death or imprisoned. But instead, the elders called for the great seer of Paddra. After that, they stared calling her "the saviour", a gift from Etro and the Maker. A fourteen-year-old Fang doesn't understand what all the fuss is about. And then she meets this saviour.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I always preferred Raziel's serious work, and this is one of the better ones. Nice bit of mystery in there, and good extrapolation on the characters: not just characterising them appropriately and faithfully, but inventing believable events for them which suit the rather different-from-canon scenario.
