    Summary

    “Teach him of Northumbria. It is the last kingdom. Without it, there will be no England.”

    Though Uhtred was often loathe to adhere to royal commands, he acceded to King Edward's request and took Aethelstan under his wing. Off and on for the last year, Uhtred and his men have been traveling Northumbria in order to prepare Aethelstan for his destiny as the King of all Saxons.

    Playing nursemaid and tutor to an aetheling was certainly not what Finan expected to be doing while in Uhtred’s service but he follows, because it is important to his Lord, to the possibility of an England, and because he cares for the young boy.

    Despite the myriad dangers hidden in the hills of Northumbria, Finan finds that it may also be a land of possibility. For Finan, this means love and a home of his own. For Uhtred, this may mean another chance at retaking Bebbanburg.

    Summary

    Órlaith (pronounced Or-lah), daughter of Finan and Eadith, has spent most of her childhood in Bebbanburg. Now, at 16, she yearns for adventure and to to see the England that those who raised her have spent their lives trying to establish. However, Scottish invasions from the North will threaten not only England, but life as Órlaith knows it.

    Note: in my head, this is an extension of my "Finding Each Other" fic. However, you by no means need to read it in order to follow Órlaith's story.

    Summary

    Uhtred's reputation as a Warrior and a Lord has grown and reached far and wide. So far and wide, in fact, that most of it is purely made up or widely exaggerated by the time they reach him again. He mostly ignored what he heard and never corrected the stories that reached his ears. He now realizes that maybe he should have, because apparently, offerings are being sent his way from those seeking his protection, as you would a King. And one in particular is staring back at him. They mostly sent things you'd rarely find in the markets in the settlements around them. So, he accepted their offerings and used them to fund their protection. Their silver, after all. This was the first time someone sent a person as an offering. A Saxon. And Uhtred did not know what was expected of him.
