Description:

The Light of Azeroth exists within many of her champions, though ancient and terrible forces work against them. They have lived through the crucible of war but still greater challenges approach. Are they stronger or will they break?


This series is a collection of stories that share the same AU elements, supporting characters and events. It follows the large strokes of the lore starting from The Cataclysm, but the details and some of the events have diverged from canon. There will be legion speculation and even minor spoilers but these stories will diverge from game canon as I'm starting before Legion release, and will probably be different where information is conflicting or where I am intentionally diverging to tell a slightly different story.

Expect adventure and character growth! And dragons.


Notes:

While the stories are part of the same series, many of them can be read as stand-alones easily!

For those keeping track (and my own benefit) here is a timeline based on in-game events. Some of them are being worked on in parallel. In particular, Earthwarder is more frequently updated at my writing tumblr VariousAndSundryWritings

Uncrowned: Rebel - Begins after the Worgen starting experience in Cataclysm, before the Worgen have formally joined the Alliance as depicted in Wolfheart. This can be read as a stand alone. Major Characters: Tess Greymane, Anduin Wrynn, Varian Wrynn, Genn Greymane, Lorna Crowley and Valeera Sanguinar.
Status: Incomplete

Life-Binder - Begins immediately after Dawn of the Aspects, which is some time after Theramore, but before Thunder Isle. Events in this story run concurrent to Earthwarder, Red Crane and Spellweaver, but can easily be read as a stand-alone.
