    Summary

    "O Willie, lie down as thou were dead,
    And the sun shines over the valley,
    And lay thy winding-sheet down at thy head,
    Down amang the blue flowers and the yellow."

    Summary

    *Now complete!*

    Kylo Ren and his rock band the Knights of Ren have lived 6 hectic years of music, gigging, drugs, drink, and general debauchery. But it's not what he wants anymore. Weary, strung out, and feeling trapped by his circumstances, an unexpected inheritance gives Kylo the way out of the band that he craves. Fresh out of rehab, he relocates to the small seaside town of Naboo.

    Rey Johnson is a skilled ceramics artist with her own studio-shop, happily settled in Naboo, peddling her wares to the tourists and online. It's a mellow and largely peaceful life, until one day she meets a man on the coastal path. An exceptionally rude raven haired man she absolutely sure she's seen somewhere before.

    In other words: two artists find love, healing and wholeness in each other, with fluff, angst and smut along the way.

    A modern AU very loosely based on/inspired by the Scottish folk song Tam Lin.

    Summary

    The sea-witch stares so deep into her eyes that Andromache feels a tightness squeezing against her from the air around her.

    "You’ll have your chance to take your beloved from me. If you can hold her through the night, in every form that she passes through. If you can manage that, then your claim on her will break mine. You will have her back.”

    “Deal.” Andromache agrees between thumping heartbeats. “Tomorrow night?”

    “Agreed. Tomorrow night it is.”

    There's not enough air in her lungs to sigh in relief, but there's also no reason to linger in the sea-witch's presence when she had what she came for. Backing off, she mounts her horse in one swift move.

    The witch appraises her slowly, taking in the white knuckles wrapped around both the reins and the axe handle. Her pearly-toothed smile widens, even as another ribbon of seaweed falls away and hits the ground.

    “And know that when you lose, I’ll put you in the water too. Deep where there’s no light. And seven years’ hence, I’ll be able to walk inland so much further with your fiery heart.”

    Summary

    Everyone knew the story: Once upon a time, humanity ruled the earth, but our self-destructive nature led to disaster. Climate crisis, war, disease, and radioactive dead zones killed enough of us to threaten extinction.

    But then, in our bleakest hour, the Fae stepped out of legend and into Southern California. Their magic cleansed the land, calmed the skies, and protected us from our own worst impulses. We showed our gratitude with obedience and, once every seven years, by surrendering an innocent life.

    Cassian thought the story was bullshit.
