    Summary

    Continues Lady Knight to the end of the Scanran War. K/D eventually. A long novel of action and manners, featuring immortals, gods, the timeway, a serious battle, some unlikely topography, and a lot of improbable architecture. Oh, and some haiku.

    Metasummary: Mary Sue? Mary Sue? I'll give you Mary Sue and make you marry her with bells on, so help me an awful lot of gods ...

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is another epic-length amazing story that completely deserves to follow Lady Knight in canon. Mind the archive warnings but if you want to see the end of the Scanran war, this is a very worthy tale about how that ends.

    Summary

    Prompt: Loki's greatest con is passing off random monsters as members of the royal family. The reason Odin keeps banishing them is because he's totally on to him.

    It starts, as it so often does, as a harmless prank, but it rapidly takes on a life of its own.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There are not many stories that change my entire head-canon. This is one of the first to make me think that the original mythology texts were told wrong because this tale of Loki's children is so perfect.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Mind the story length if you have a lot to get done, this is a wonderful story that builds in gradual steps into a juggernaut. This is also the only story to convince me that Harry and Hermione could work done through a few gentle changes on Harry- he starts doing better in school and valuing things Hermione values, it starts to build gradually from there. There's also a lot of Traditional Wizarding worldbuilding and alliances. Mostly, though, Sirius and Harry get the world to run more smoothly and it's a great read.

    Summary

    The Sith Lord Darth Vader lived his life. He probably didn't live it well, but he lived it as well as he knew how. At the end there, he'd even managed to woman up and kill Sidious. But he was dying, and at peace with the past.

    The past wasn't at peace with him.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Classic Star Wars "character's psyche travels back in time to lead to a giant amount of fix-it," but this time it's Anakin aided by a refreshing amount of common sense and forward planning.
