    Summary

    "Imagine me deciding to feel bad about everything I’ve ever done, and then imagine what kind of life I’ll have. Because I’m not brave enough to live in some fucked up eighteen-hundreds-style purgatory. I’d rather die. There’s no one who wants me, and there’s no one who will. Which is exactly what someone like me deserves, isn’t it?" A story about a broken boy, who is learning how not to break everything else around him.

    (No knowledge of any of the characters or other stories in the universe is needed to read this story!)

    Summary

    Augus is summoned by the Unseelie King of the fae to test out his hand at being a diplomat with a secretive, cave-dwelling race of fae known as the vench. He is sent to the remote region of Aethelwaters to strike up a trade deal, with the King's Mage and executioner - Gwyn ap Nudd - as his bodyguard. They come face to face with a closed culture largely unreceptive to newcomers, initiations to test their merit, an unusual way of feeding, and pitfalls and traps at every turn. Will it drive the shaky foundation between Gwyn and Augus further apart? Or bring them together?

    Part 3 of the Lone Wolf series.

    Summary

    "Augus was beginning to lose sight of what he wanted, why he had come here. Fuck the King, kill the King. Either he veered between extremes of hatred and devotion, or he felt nothing at all. Since that year in the dark he felt cut off from the part of him that knew itself and felt at peace with its desires, that still pool where things were calm and clear. When he slept, which was rare, he dreamt of birds. Of wandering in the dark, sightless, surrounded by the beating of wings. Of sinking his teeth in, feeling the crunch of those hollow bones. A mouthful of feathers. The taste of blood—whose blood?—like the iron tang of a bright winter day. The drives he could never quite separate: to love, to consume. Feathers lodged beneath his claws, the quivering of wings."

    In Augus' fourth year as the Raven Prince's consort, an explosive secret threatens the fragile accord between them.

    Summary

    He’d always been filled with a buzzing, electric kind of energy, like bees making a hive beneath his skin, nestled deep in his heart. Sex and violence were the easiest outlets. Sex and violence could leave him sated and still and quiet, like very little else could.

    Summary

    The Raven Prince knows he can suffer the consequences of this easily, as he has suffered much, much worse. But what's troublesome is how Mosk will feel about it once he comes out of this emotionally charged fugue of magic and power. He expects it will only help to cement Mosk's silly idea that he is irredeemable and The Raven Prince cannot allow that to happen, because once Mosk accepts that about himself, truly accepts it in his heart -- well. Then they are all doomed.

    Summary

    Podfic of not_poignant's 'Deeper into the Woods'.

    Once, in the realm of the fae, a Seelie War General - Gwyn ap Nudd - committed a terrible crime, and went to the most unlikely of places for assistance; the home of an Unseelie waterhorse he’d never met before, for a most unconventional form of healing.

    Podficcer note: If you haven't gotten into this series, it is my FAVORITE THING and I highly recommend you try it out if it sounds like the kind of content you're into.
