    Summary

    Vampires take over the world one Wednesday night. Cecilia Talbot, basic family black sheep, struggles to adapt to her new place in the social order- as a royal in one of the vampire courts. Her temptation to become complacent is strong; who wouldn't want to live forever when nothing will ever be denied you? But she knows there's a cost. Faced with her new reality- faction-driven infighting, elaborate etiquette rituals, and a lot of murder, of course- she decides to fight for a different path.
    A shadowy rebel government, a growing human resistance movement, ancient vampire history, and a very talented couturier add to the intrigue, but ultimately the choice is Celia's: does she believe she can make a better world?

    Summary

    What if Jen said yes to Rick's proposal.. for all the wrong reasons?

    Jen becoming Rick's queen was everything they'd worked so hard for, but the dream soon becomes a nightmare as Maxwell and Jen continue to figure out their growing feelings for each other. This is a story in five parts - a story of bad decisions, forbidden love, betrayal, keeping dangerous secrets, and the inevitable fallout.

    ***PART ONE - A TASTE***

    Jen Jones clears her name and receives a long overdue marriage proposal from the King of Cordonia. But she knows there's only one answer she can give. It's everything she's worked for, everything they've worked for. And she can't let down the one person who's stood by her through everything now, can she? Even if she's in love with him?

    Note: this fic includes infidelity, so if you're not comfortable with that, this might not be the fic for you.

    Summary

    “Din Djarin, the Once and Future King,” Luke declared, his voice somehow ringing through Din’s head rather than through his ears. It sounded as though another voice spoke over Luke’s own. This man was Luke Skywalker, and yet, was not. “You wield the Darksaber, won in honorable combat, as Kings of Mandalore before you. The Force commands you to seek the Child and save it from its doom, and in doing so, will save the galaxy and reunite your people under your banner. Do you accept your quest?”

     

     

    The Force delivers a dire prophecy to Din Djarin, demanding he take his rightful place as the king of his people. With the help of the last Jedi, he must gather his closest allies and prevent the worst to come.

    Summary

    The new king is an odd one. He never speaks in meetings, using his guard's voice instead to communicate everything necessary for his advisors to know. His wife, too, is different from her predecessor. Stony faced and stern, Queen Malaidor rules with a fist made of velvet, not iron. Any day now, she'll take up the gauntlet. For all her harping on equality, it won't be long until she's going the way of her predecessor.

    At the side of the most powerful man in all of Galailan, Hastion does his best to attend to his liege. As the personal guard to King Galengar, only the best behavior is expected of him. He lives to please him, breathes to serve him; every secret he learns will die with him. If only he could ignore those pesky emotions getting in the way of it all. The palace dungeons are far from an attractive place to be.

    Summary

    Legolas never knew the right thing to do.

    In his forest, messages came on the breeze. The trees told him of approaching spiders. Small creatures told him where to find berries and even the earth beneath his feet told him, ‘this is where you belong’. He always knew what to do in the forest, but in this Mannish place he was at a loss.

    *****
    Why did you write this?
    'Never Trust an ELF!': this scene in the movies got me thinking. Why exactly is Gimli so angry?

    So, what's the story about?
    This is a look at Legolas, who Tolkien was somewhat vague about in the book. We all love Orlando, but I've mixed it up and cast differently. This is also a cultural exploration of Dwarves, and a look at Gimli's growth in understanding that history may be more nuanced than what was on public record.

    Why is it so long?
    It is a worldbuilding meander, looking at some of the bits we were not shown in the books & films, including the bromances and slash. We explore the characters and events in both The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings, with back-stories, and rummaging in heads.

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Summary

    “You might have made a fine ruler,” Bertilak said, rising as their vessel collided with the shore.

    “That is true,” Gawain said cautiously, tethering the boat to the base of the cross, “but I am no warrior. To rule in this land is to bring ruin.”

    “Better you had died, then, in order to spare countless lives?” Bertilak asked. “You would have made a martyr of yourself like Winifred.”

    “Yes,” Gawain said, helping Bertilak out of the boat. “What a queer pair of ghosts we’d be.”

    Bertilak sighed, spreading his arms wide. “Lead on, though thy thwarted fate awaits thee.”

    “Death is not the thwarted fate I seek,” Gawain said, grabbing Bertilak’s hand, tired of waiting.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester has been married to King Cain of Atrox for three years now, and every day is the same as the one before it: he hears complaints from the people he can't do anything for, he manages a staff he has no control over, and he lies in bed at night for his husband to take what he needs.
    The only solace Dean has is a single day of the week, where the knights of the kingdom come to a banquet every week to eat, drink and be merry. There, Dean feels as free as the knights are as he hears their stories every week.
    Then, a mysterious dark haired knight begins to come to the banquets with a banner of moon with wings on either side of it. Who is this strange man? And why does he make Dean think of betraying his husband?
