    Summary

    That same, elusive shrug. “It’s a secret, princess.” He says pointedly, snagging the book from her before throwing the truck into park, “But you’ll be the first to read it once it’s done, okay?”

    “Wow,” she says, nodding. “I’m honored.”

    A beat as he sizes her up, his brows furrowing together in exasperation before he says, weary, “You’re going to ask me what it’s about again, aren’t you?”

    “Bellamy,” she says obediently, grinning, “what’s your book about?”

    If you told Clarke Griffin that she would become best friends with the resident black sheep of Arkadia, she would have difficulty believing it, let alone the fact that he apparently wrote an entire book about her.

    (Or: Clarke and Bellamy through the years, as childhood best friends.)

    Summary

    "The vows were short, perfunctory; Clarke was asked to say I do, and she did. There were rings, too: Bellamy’s fingers were warm against her hand when he slipped a ring on her finger, and she put a ring on his. They were instructed to kiss. His lips were dry, pressing against her mouth for a moment, and that was it. They were done.

    She was a wife, and her husband was a stranger."

    AU. Clarke winds up in an arranged marriage with Bellamy.

    Summary

    I think, Brandon said once to Daenerys - the first time he showed her their godswood - that it would be more true to say that only life can pay for life. It just depends whether that life is given or taken.

    Healing. That's what I did, reading this fic.
    And some really lovely prose to go with it.

    Summary

    Mike grows up, but he doesn’t forget.

    [alternatively – almost three years go by and everyone moves on until they don’t. because you can stop talking about it, put it away in a drawer, but things have changed and the effects are long reaching, and you can be as young as twelve and learn the meaning of the phrase “you can never go home again” and Mike isn’t sure he wants to.]

    Summary

    One. Laird John Hamilton loves his brother, perhaps more than James deserves; in the end, it is an easy thing to arrange ship’s passage for two small boys to Glasgow.

    Two. For a bastard nephew striking out on his own, a commission in His Majesty’s Army is a gift from Providence; it would be foolish to throw away this shot.

    Three. On a brisk day in late November 1778, dried leaves crunching under his boots, General Washington encounters a young redcoat in the woods.

    What price would you pay to maintain your honor?
