    Summary

    Squeezed cozily between two buildings sits an old antiquated hotel called Arcane Emporium. It is often overlooked, but every now an again a new guest checks in for the night. However, it is anything but typical. Rumors are that it is home to flickering lights, strange specters, a maze of hallways that watch you, a poltergeist, a giant human sized spider. A haunted house by all definitions.

    Summary

    Kissing your boss is probably not a great idea. Especially not if you aren't sure whether he'd welcome it. And definitely not if he's an incredibly powerful Dark mage - who is also your enemy.

    An AU that diverges from Canon in Bound.

    Summary

    'No one is born either a good or a bad person. There may be certain predispositions in our genetic code that define us, but as a matter of fact, in most cases our experiences determine our future path in life. The way we were brought up and how we interact with other people, whether we love or hate them, shape our character even more than we would like to admit sometimes.'

    Alex is sick of being considered a Dark mage just because he used to be apprenticed to one of them. But there is one thing that he is worried about - what if they were right? He starts recalling his past...

    Summary

    Chalice has a small, sharp, smile as she talked to me. “When you first asked me for information on it, I didn’t think you were serious.” She pulled out some papers in a dark folder, and passed it to me. Her finger, still holding it closed to prevent me from opening it. “Imagine my surprise when I found out hints that the great myth, might not be so mythical after all.”

    As the threat of Richard’s plans looms over his head, Alex is hot on the trail of an artifact that might actually give him a chance. If only he could obtain it.
