Description:

AU. Inspired by Ellen Kushner's Riverside universe.

Follows the story of the people of Crocus: nobles in the Hill, scholars and foreign traders in the Middle City, and swordsmen in the streets of Magnolia.

Notes:

A series of stories set in the same universe but not necessarily in chronological order. There will be a recurring plotline, but expect each installation to be more like a snippet in a long course of events.

Main pairing will be Natsu/Lucy/Loke in a poly romantic relationship and Freed/Laxus/Mira as a poly queerplatonic relationship. Implied romantic Freed/Laxus and Mira/Cana. A lot of my usual character dynamics have been switched up. This is a very experimental thing for me, so you've been warned!

The stories can be read in any order, most of them can be stand-alone.
For optimal dramatic effect + reveals, it's best to read them in the order they were published.
But in case you want to read them chronologically, which great too, the timeline is so far is:

1.) House Dreyar
2.) The Duke's Wife
3.) Young Dragons
4.) Stella and Salamander
5.) Convocation
6.) Song of the Rain - IN PROGRESS

COMING UP:
- A Sword for Iris
- Magnolia's Get
