    Summary

    A tiny bit of a reverse Beauty & the Beast. The beautiful scholar prince of a conquered country is given in marriage to the monstrous warrior queen of their conquerors, in an effort to keep his family and his kingdom safe. It's possible that his new wife didn't expect him to be quite as pragmatic about it as he is, though. To be fair, his family didn't either.

    Summary

    The wyrldwood, the last forest that stretches along the northern edge of the world along the boundary between it and chaos, is nothing any sensible person wants to tangle with. Though it's been quiet for the last four centuries, since the last great incursion of chaos was vanquished, it still evokes nothing but madness and monsters for most people.

    Unfortunately, when your partner and the love of your life is a wyrldwood fae by birth, sooner or later even the most sensible person might end up daring its confines. With Laerin as her partner, Gethyd has little choice, and all she can do now is weather the cavalcade of secrets the promise of that vast northern forest draws forth.

    Summary

    To imagine the friendship of a lowly river gnome and a fae champion would be the height of foolishness. Rue doesn't particularly care. It's a quiet thing they have, her winter knight and her. A silent companionship.

    Summary

    "Don't nobody mess with Carla James. And don't nobody forget that the river will have its due."

    The city and the river feed each other, but if somebody murders the wrong man, if somebody tips things the wrong way, then the river will have its due. Urban fantasy, an ugly little slice of fairytale noir.

    Summary

    Set some time post-S1. There's no more troublesome creature Sho Fukan could have drawn to himself than Rin Setsua, but there are only so many times a man may be rained on before he simply gets used to the weather.

    Summary

    Scanlan/Pike/Percy. Something of a post-coital companion piece to The Avarice of Angels, in which sex is not as Percy expected, and all the happier for that.

    Detective Vex'ahlia knew that boy was bad news the moment he walked in, with his white hair and his shaking hands and his face like a betrayed angel. She knew he was gonna be the one who got her killed. She took him on anyway.

    Summary

    Keyleth opens her door one morning to find Percy standing there in a fit of blind terror and shame. His first attempt at having sex with Vex ... didn't go well. At all. Nobody's fault, Percy just had a somewhat intense and unexpected reaction. Keyleth has no idea how to fix this, why he came to her or how to even begin, but she loves him, so she's damn well going to try.

    Summary

    Grog might not have the usual approach to love and sex, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's missing anything. He doesn't think so, anyway.

    Summary

    In which Scanlan tells Pike about Polymachina, and Pike takes the joke rather more seriously than he expected. Because Pike loves more than one person, and Pike would quite like the opportunity to be allowed to love them both. And maybe a few more people besides as well. Percy, terrified and self-loathing as he is, needs a little bit of persuasion, but they get there in the end. They're a greedy bunch, after all, one and all.

    Scanlan/Pike/Percy, so-far-unrealised Percy/Vex, and possibly the seeds of Polymachina.

    Summary

    Victor contemplating. Set just after Victor and Percy's nighttime conversation in Ep.57. In which Victor might not be quite as disconnected from reality as he might appear, and it doesn't necessarily take a genius to realise that Percy isn't always on the level either.

    Summary

    Every year on the twenty third day of Aubyn, in the counties of Wychfarm, Lydd, Cathyll and Mayffryn in the province of Gethryck, the annual Witch Run takes place. It's done so in one form or another for over five hundred years now, and there's nobody in the four counties who’ll say a word against it.
