    Summary

    Your name is Dirk Strider, and all your life as far as you can remember, which is a pretty damn long time by now, you've lived at this hidden temple to Apollo. You study medicine and music, keep the temple in good shape, say prayers, and occasionally take care of pilgrims who make their way here on religious journeys.

    Or at least you did, until the temple stopped getting visitors. You'd resigned yourself to living alone out here until Jake English, a young man wandering the world with a curse. He's "questing", he says, but the look of it is he's got no choice.

    You tell yourself you shouldn't, but it's hard not to bond over curses.

    Summary

    They say "Magic comes with a price."

    Knowing that is hanging over your head. What would you do for the ones you loved?
    Would you risk everything for them?
    Would you use the magic, against an enemy?
    Would you use good magic, or dark magic?

    Everything comes with a price, regardless of the choices that you make.

    But what would you do, to get back the things you've lost?
    What would you do, to get back the ones you love?
    What would you do, to get back the life you had?
    Would you risk everything?

    Too many questions running through your head. Can sometimes, drive a person mad.
    Being thrown into a world, a life, and living under a name that isn't your own. Will also drive a person mad.

    Are you mad here?

    Summary

    After attempting to rule another realm, nobody in the courts of Asgard was opposed to Loki's conviction. However, years later, in a turn of events that nobody is privy to, Odin wonders whether his youngest son was sentenced too harshly. Unbeknownst to anyone, Loki is moved to a new type of cell, with new terms of imprisonment too, in the hopes he will have a chance for redemption. However, as days become months and months become years, the world moves on without him in it. Will Loki really benefit as intended or has he simply been condemned to a new type of torture? The arrival of a stranger puts everything to the test...

    Despite being overlooked in your hometown on a daily basis, your spirit is not easily broken - not, until one day when an incident on the road out of town leaves you broken and bruised. With nowhere else to turn, you find yourself at the doorstep of a man with no interest in saving anyone but himself...

    Summary

    Once upon a time, the youngest son of Odin, Loki Laufeyson, was imprisoned in the highest room of the tallest tower, ne'er to be seen again. The arrival of a stranger put everything to the test... and for a while it seemed as though they'd passed. A whole year later sees the rumour of nuptials circulating amongst the palace walls, amongst other rumours. Somebody is looking for you, somebody you thought was lost to the wind many moons ago. Adventure once again appears to be on the horizon.

    However, not all is as well as it seems.

    There was more than met the eye in the deal that Odin made, all those years ago. Ends were left loose and promises were not kept. Friends, both old and new, must face an enemy unlike any other as sons are forced to pay for the sins of the father. The bonds of friendship and, more importantly, of family will be tested to their limits.

    Summary

    “They’re special books, Princess,” there’s a small smile on Jarvis’ face then. “For a special girl, like you.”

    “For me?” Natasha asks, awe making her eyes go wide.

    No one but Jarvis has ever called her special before.

    “Yes, for you,” Jarvis confirms. “They are a part of your legacy, young miss, just as it is a part of mine. It is a legacy that you do not share with His Majesty King Howard, or your Queen Mother. It hasn’t appeared in the Stark line in generations but I can sense it on you, no matter how weak my own Gift is. Your Gift, whatever it may be, is … very strong. Too strong to be ignored as I had hoped. And so you must learn, but we must keep it secret.”

    “What is it?” Natasha breathes the question out, eager to have some kind of special connection with Jarvis. Eager to have a secret just for the two of them. “What do I have?”

    Magic, my dear Princess,” Jarvis whispers. “We are magic.”

    Natasha’s heart skips a beat.

    Summary

    As a boy, Prince Yuuri imagined that the only person he could ever marry was Victor Tsarevich, the magician prince of the distant Nikiforovan Empire. But Victor died before his 18th birthday, and seven years later a giant bear saves Yuuri’s life, then requests his hand in marriage as repayment. The mysterious Vitya (part-time bear / cursed magician) needs a handsome prince to break his spell; Yuuri (handsome prince / part-time magician) wants to learn more magic, and so they come to an arrangement.

    Summary

    The War of Lions has fallen dormant in the wake of Emperor Lotor's uprising, but a different rift spreads throughout the land of Arus: are the other royal families so vulnerable that they should be protected in case someone else like Lotor comes along? Or should the royals be under suspicion for fear of following in Lotor's violent steps?

    Prince Matthew Holt can only speak for himself, but he's certainly not interested in taking over the kingdom as it is. If anything, he'd rather withdraw from the life of royalty. Renowned gladiator Shiro, on the other hand, is only concerned with keeping his half-brother Keith safe from the Empire. But when the Black Lion, Rajalti, carries Shiro out of the arena, he and all of Arus know things are about to change; of course it's not until Shiro meets Matt than anyone can suspect how great those changes will be.

    Summary

    The unicorn does not remember many things, although he has had many years to make memories. When a chance encounter leads him to believe he may be the last of his species, he sets out from his wood, risking his life in search of the others.

    A story of magic, immortality, curses, family, loyalty, and love, and what it takes to repair a heart when it shatters.

    Summary

    "As Plain As The Nose On His Face"

    Dating was perhaps the worst thing that had ever happened to Ben Solo, and that was counting the fact that his nose was a snout. It wasn't his fault that his grandfather managed to employ the only practicing witch in the country and piss her off. It certainly wasn't his fault that his mother was bent on fixing this mess, even if she had to drag every eligible bachelorette in the country into their living room.

    And by no means was it his fault that he fell in love with the only non-blueblood who managed to slip in.
