    Summary

    Andy Sachs Goldman is a celebrated painter. She paints the rich and famous all around the world. Or, she did, until two years ago when she dropped off the grid entirely and became almost hermit-like. But now after her self-imposed exile, she is back in the public eye. Miranda Priestly has only a vague recollection of ever hearing about AS Goldman, but when she meets the woman in the flesh, her unexpected offer of a portrait surprises her into accepting. Will these two women find a balance between their two personalities and get along for the sake of the portrait? Or will Andy's past come back to haunt them and tear them apart irreparably?

    Summary

    AU in which Cara and Kahlan are both the last of their kind. Although in this AU Cara never joined the Seeker’s quest, she and Kahlan form an uneasy alliance for the purpose of rescuing Richard and bringing down Darken Rahl. This alliance leads them on a fantastical journey in which just about anything can, and does, happen.

    For the sake of brevity, let me just say that if your kitchen sink is missing, it’s probably somewhere in this fic. Seriously, I can’t think of single thing I didn’t toss into this crazy story. There are elements of Calvino’s Invisible Cities, maybe a bit of a Gulliver’s Travels vibe, and some Alice in Wonderland tossed in for good measure. Oh, also pirates and gladiators and penguins; the list goes on and on. All of the adventure aside, this is a love story, pure and simple. It’s sweet, romantic, fun, and at times heartbreaking. Expect a boatload of feelings and some plot twists along the way.
