    Summary

    Hob had first stumbled upon, and then been dragged into this whole esoteric business. The chance of sating both his wanderlust and his loneliness had been to good to pass, and there he'd gone - Faking it until he'd made it. Conning this secret society at leisure, posing as the immortal Count of St. Germain. For once, he didn't have to lie about his age...

    ... And their books let him search for an echo of his Stranger in their lines. He'd keep his distance, he swore. But the loss of the one place he could return to always, the distress of this place being a person-- It had hit him hard.

    ----

    (Or, Hob Gadling learns first hand why you don't impersonate another immortal, the perils of cult mentality, and why calling your Stranger your North Star isn't platonic. Not at all.)

    Summary

    Alicent knew what her father wanted, and knew what could happen if she went directly against his wishes. However, she could never betray her friend in such a way and continued to push the king and Rhaenyra to reconcile after the tragic death of Queen Aemma. However, her father is not the only one who sees Alicent as a pawn to be used within House Targaryen.

    Wishing to reconcile with his brother and have him back for his wedding to the very young Laena Velaryon, King Viserys orders his brother back to King’s Landing with the promise of the one thing Daemon wanted more than the throne: an annulment from his wife Rhea Royce. However, upon his return, Daemon learns that his brother has another bride already lined up for him: Lady Alicent Hightower.
    The tentative strings of a song have been plucked and a dance is about to begin. The color of some of the players may have changed, but the song must be played for destiny is a terrible thing and dreams are not always as they seem.

    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

    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, about whom Tolkien was somewhat vague in the book. We all love Orlando, but I've mixed it up and cast differently. This is also a cultural exploration 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

    The message simply read, Come to the Merry Men’s camp as soon as you can.
    And then, before Emma could fully process what she’d just read, it was followed by a second, even shorter one: Bring your mother.

     

    Emma's stabler family life doesn't prevent her from taking a surprise trip to a land of courtly intrigue and magic gone unchecked for too long.
    It doesn't spare her the headache of dealing with a king's frantic quest, children with a death wish and her parents' increasingly worrying behavior, either.

    Summary

    As far as her knowledge of beauty goes, the second prince reminds her of the icy wilderness of the northern lands - his hair white as the snowflakes dancing on the cold air, his one eye lavender like the sunsets under Weirwood tree. Standing in the shadows of the princess’ chamber, she listens to his voice, a softness of snow under her feet resonating in the bones of her small body. An oddity, for sure - that a prince of flames could look like the ice cravings of the old northern tales. - Stark!OC and Aemond

    Summary

    Delloso de la Rue sacrifices the title of True in protection of the magic that flows to the mortal realm. K.P. Hob wallows and writhes in the doubt and distrust that follows for but a few moments, but it's enough to change the story irrevocably. It's enough to make the road to a happy ending winding and all too easy to lose track of, like all roads into Faerie must be. Perhaps they will find at the end of it that the stars were only waiting to align themselves until they were all truly ready to receive the gifts they bore.

    (Or, I make Rue/Hob/Wuvvy the delicious mess it deserves to be.)

    Summary

    As a strict and cold critic of all the royals, you knew one of them would come after you which is why you looked at the letter with disdain. You opened it and it was demanding your presence at The Court Of Kings.

     

    Little did you know that the meeting would change your life.

    Summary

    « De quoi avez vous peur alors mon amie ?
    -J'ai peur de mourir seule, enfermée dans mon propre esprit, prisonnière de mon corps et de mes pensées, loin de vous, de votre amour, oubliée de tous. De ne pas pouvoir serrer votre main dans la mienne pendant mes derniers instants de vie. De voir ma peau lentement perdre ses couleurs et sa jeunesse. De voir mes yeux devenir aveugles et de ne plus pouvoir reconnaître votre voix. J'ai peur de vous perdre bien trop tôt au hasard d'une bataille contre de farouches ennemis et de passer le reste de mes jours abandonnée car je ne pourrait jamais retrouver le bonheur si j'étais éternellement séparée de vous. J'ai peur d'être seule, monsieur, et de mourir. »

    And yet, Alicent leaves that hand on his cheek, carefully tracing his bruised cheekbone. She sees there’s a fresh cut on his bottom lip. A small, sinful part of Alicent wonders how would Criston’s mouth feel against her own – 

    “Does it hurt?” Alicent asks him, forcing those words out before she says anything else. 

     

    Alicent and Criston share a quiet moment, after the incident in the yard. Set during episode 6.

    Summary

    Magic is art, moreover it is poetry. It is the province of things which must be approached sideways, or backward, in order to speak face to face. It is the music that motivates people to dance, to celebrate life -- and the words of the dead which echo across time. Magic is a book telling a story about the person reading it; awesome and terrifying. Indirect, implied, hinted at, or seen only while squinting. Where beasts can walk like men, and men can smile like beasts.
