    Summary

    Tags and warnings are correct, please review them before continuing. Please do not read if you are triggered by any of them.

    As I feel Esme and her time living with the scythes was barely covered in the series, but I think it could have included some great insight to explain some of the darker sides of scythes, I decided to write her story from her point of view. This arc follows the general timeline laid out in Scythe, the first book in the series. Characters include both known and a few originals created to fill in some gaps.

    I wanted to explore her struggles and experiences living with the scythes, including just how power can promote or erode morals, especially in a world that has conquered death, disease and pain. As the youngest character in the series, I think Esme’s point of view is unique.

    This is all fiction, if you don’t want to think about these topics, don’t read this. This is a dark storyline with dark themes. This is a very different tone from the original series. Set your expectations accordingly.

    I know it’s kind of smutty, but I think sex gets left out of too many stories. For this arc, it didn’t make sense to leave it out. Remember, it’s fiction.

    Summary

    “And if I put my fingers here, and if I say, ‘I love you, dear…’”

    This is the verse Gerald Van Der Gans hears in his first soulmate dream at thirteen years old. As he grows up to be the music star Michael Faraday, he tries to find his soulmate by singing his soulmate song at every concert. Marie Curie, a music star who pulled herself up by her bootstraps to achieve fame, is not a fan of Michael, and is not in a rush to find her soulmate. Everything changes when she goes to one of his concerts and hears him sing.

    This is the story of how Olivia Kwon became Scythe Ayn Rand. When Scythe Goddard takes young Olivia Kwon on as his apprentice, he has no idea he has just set in motion a series of events that will ultimately lead to his death.

     

    This story is linked in with my most recent AOAS story, 'What Might've Been'. It is not wholly nescearry to have read it to understand and read this story but it will provide context for the end of the story.

    Summary

    I tried to edit The Ninth Commandment (my first and the most popular Arc Of A Scythe) fanfiction before to make it less cringy, but I failed, so I decided to give it a full-blown re-write! It's currently not completed, but I'm working on it.

    Fifty years after Scythe Curie received her ring, her and her former mentor, the Honorable Scythe Faraday, turn their first corner. Then, after meeting again at conclave, Faraday starts to question whether he wants to be more than friends with her, and Scythe Curie's crush of fifty years is only solidified. Their beliefs and everything they've ever been taught comes into question.
