    Summary

    For generations, the church and the Bishop's Men have maintained order in the far-flung colony of the New Covenant. A brutal six-year war between the church and a heretical movement led by a man named John Metzger has left James Finnbar looking for a place to rebuild his life, somewhere he won't be found.

    What he finds is Carlston, a frontier mining town owned by the unmarried, cross-dressing Ada Carl, a woman who isn't above a good old fashioned barter: work for me, and I won't collect the price on your head.

    As an uneasy friendship grows between the two, founded on the shared circumstance of being queer in a society that would deny they even exist, neither Ada or James is without their demons, and though the town rests on the edge of civilization, it is only a matter of time before their pasts catch up to them, and consume the fragile balance struck in the temporary haven of Carlston.

    I have three bulletproof fave narrative tropes: marriage of convenience, space westerns, and found queer families. This raised the three of those to a higher level and basically ate a day of my life I happily parted with. Go. Read it.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins led a rather peaceful life, thank you very much, until an old acquaintance decided to turn it upside down, and he found himself agreeing to take a job that’s… let’s say not exactly up his alley, and might eventually cost him a little more than his treasured cozy lifestyle. Who would have thought tutoring a slightly menacing monarch’s more than slightly overbearing nephew could prove to be such an adventure?

    Just lovely. Politics and real reactions and romance, oh my! A sweet modernization and intensification of a well-worn narrative.

    He was determining his own protocols. It was an ongoing process, and kind of a mess.

    Oh, this was gorgeous. I love a good hopeless WWII gay AU for any pairing, but for this one in particular it's sweetly searing.

    Summary

    "There are things you know about, and things you don’t, the known and the unknown, and in between are the doors." -William Blake

    Count Luke Skywalker was quite content - his ward, Finn, is graduating with honors from medical school, Luke's become well ensconced in a quiet bachelor's life since becoming a widower, and while his sister is still quite busy as spymaster for Queen Victoria, she's only interfered in his life enough to keep him from becoming a full on eccentric until now.

    Commander Poe Dameron has been quite committed to his bachelor life as well, but for very different reasons.

    Just a charming little regency romantic spy drama.
