    Summary

    Far to the south, an animus has overthrown the NightWing throne. Days later, he wipes out the entire IceWing tribe with a deadly plague - but it turns out that not every IceWing was killed. In the ruins of their lost civilization, a new world emerges, controlled by the iron fist of an IceWing leader. Dragons call it the Rift, a place between the unbearable cold of the north and the war-torn kingdoms below. Summers are mild, winters are freezing, and blood is spilled year-round.

    Citrine and Sunstone are two brothers living on the run in the wilderness of the Rift. The pair of dragonets are inexperienced and vulnerable, and only a mysterious but kind IceWing plague survivor can shield them from their harsh reality.

    The world is changing, slowly but surely, and the safety Citrine and Sunstone thought they'd had may have never existed. With the threat of the NightWings to the south, and the ever-present danger around them, Citrine and Sunstone will have to keep their promise to each other for either of them to make it out alive.

    Together until the end.

    Summary

    A scavenger, an ex-stormtrooper, and a most wanted droid escape a desert wasteland only to run right into an independent cargo hauler named Ben. He's got sad eyes, a mysterious past, the total trust of the droid carrying a map to the Last Jedi, and a fear of Kylo Ren. No one in this ship wants to get involved with the First Order, or the Resistance.

    But some things cannot be outrun. Some pasts cannot be forgotten. Some light cannot be extinguished. And some choices were always inevitable.

    [Or: Ben Solo is not the one who becomes Kylo Ren.]

    Summary

    “This would be nothing more than securing a firmer alliance with the Church," Rodrigue explained gently.
    “Through marriage,” Dimitri ground out.
    “Yes,” Rodrigue agreed. “Through marriage.”

    With the Kingdom of Faerghus in desperate need of stability and a stronger alliance with the Church of Seiros, Dimitri is advised to marry the scion of Archbishop Rhea, Lady Eisner. Though an arranged marriage is something he has never wished for, he will do anything to improve the lives of his people.

    The only problem is that Lady's Eisner's hand is the most sought after in all of Fodlan. And the competition is not to be taken lightly.

    Summary

    Queen Tyanna would do anything to save her daughter from the prophecy she read in Princess Daenys' book of fates which had predicted the Doom of Valyria and now, she realised, also predicted the death of her own daughter as a child if she sat the throne. Abandoning her own life to her husband's fury, she gave her to a dusky-skinned woman in a city of soot and ash that her magic had conjured a passage to.

    A Dragon alone in the world is a terrible thing--but Daena at least had the dream of being an aeronaut.

    This is the story of a Targaryen Sorceress on the cusp of the First World War, with her dead grandmother whispering in her mind.

    It is played straight from magical realism with realistic depictions of violence, period language, and extremist politics, be warned. I decided to count the 20th century as "Modern Setting" compared to medieval Westeros. The actual number of chapters is indeterminate, but likely to be /more/ than the currently estimated 100.

    A lot of historical people show up in this story in the style of most alt-hist works.

    Summary

    War didn't discriminate between male or female, and the Nazis would come after you either way. All it took was being connected to a Star of David or any "lesser" human, and they'd lock you up and throw away the key.

    These days, Adélaïde liked to go by Alice. It set the Americans and British more at ease than trying to write a French name with accents. Though really, the problem with her name was the last bit. Klein was undoubtedly German, and to any uneducated Allied soldier, that meant Nazi. But not all Germans were Nazis, and not all people with German last names were German, only. Her French mother would've had something to say about that.

    When the Underground heard of the Allies looking for connections to the French Resistance who could act as translators, they'd quickly sent Alice Klein. She trained herself, was smuggled to Britain, and then across the Atlantic where she finally found the state of Georgia. But she didn't just find barracks and training grounds. She found men, and in them, family. Because that's what Easy Company was. A family.

    Summary

    1938. War brews between the Communist International and Great Britain's antibolshevist coalition.

    But that's far from the mind of Toni Topaz, humble farm girl who's just received a scholarship to study at Eugene V. Debs University in the city. Already overwhelmed by her new urban existence, Toni's life is further complicated and frustrated by fellow classmate Cheryl Blossom, a firebrand desperate to prove herself and expiate the sins of her family.

    Just when Toni's begun to think she might survive both the rigors of student life and her new nemesis, she finds herself and Cheryl rudely thrown together by the march of history.

    University is a trial, but a world war is worse.
