    Summary

    Former historian Margo Duvalle has survived her transplantation to Thedas, but her troubles are just beginning. The body Margo occupies belonged to a rogue with a tumultuous past — a past that seems to stalk her at every corner. Now, at the questionable edges of the Inquisition, Margo’s life is tangled up with an organization that hangs by a thread, and its unlikely young leader whose uncanny abilities and unorthodox religious views might end up upending everything, for better or for worse. Saving a world is a thankless task — but who will save Thedas from its heroes?
    Picks up where Reluctant Alchemist left off. Please refer to Prologue for a reading guide.

    I am indebted to Qophia for donating her labor as beta. All remaining mistakes are mine.

    PSA: I am working on a remastered version of Reluctant Alchemist Vol 1. Featuring cleaned-up syntax, bonus chapters, more in-depth characterization, added banter, and many other goodies. Enjoy!

    Summary

    In the Grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. The Imperium of Man is crumbling from within and without. Not even the return of Roboute Gulliman can change the current of fate.

    It is only a matter of time before the Imperium falls. Before any chance of a peaceful and prosperous future for humanity is lost forever.

    Sooner rather than later, the Golden Throne will fail, and the last hope of His species, The Emperor of Mankind will die with his dream.

    Fortunately for The Emperor, the first Captain-General of the Legio Custodes Constantin Valdor and his friend Knight Commander Jenetia Krole of the Sisters of Silence aren't about the let that happen. They embarked on a quest to rescue the Eldar Goddess of Life Isha. If they can free her from Nurgle's hands, she may be able to heal the Emperor.

    It's a good thing the two of them bumped into Leman Russ and Rogal Dorn right?

    Summary

    Izuku was never quirkless.

    Sometimes quirks hide until they are triggered. Izuku tasted death and found it lacking, every flavour bitter and lacking spice. In the moments between death and life, he gazed into the howling abyss and it followed him home. Everything he thought he knew about the world is a lie. There are monsters lurking in the dark below, always waiting and always watching, hidden by the shadows.

    They wait patiently, waiting for one to sit upon a throne of crystal madness and eternal suffering. They have waited for aeons and will wait until the end of eternity.

    They wait for Izuku Midoriya.

    Summary

    “Loxias!” he calls, then he pauses.

    The brownblood sits in the middle of the boat, her head thrown back and her braids strewn across the floor around her like a cloak. From this angle, the line of her long neck looks like the sort of things trolls would've fought wars for, but then she moves. She's too long-limbed, too bony: the skin pricks at the back of your neck as she pulls herself to her feet, hands splayed with their spider-thin fingers flat against the deck.

    She stands up, each movement jerky, like she ain't quite sure how to make each bit of her move on its own, and you take a step back. Liyiji’s paused beside you, his ears pinned back, eyes wide in the darkness.

    "Something's wrong," Liyiji says, his voice strained. "Just -" He drags a hand down his braids, mouth drawing thin into a slash, then he glances at you side-long. "Just wait here? I'll check in on her."


    Riccin visits the seatowns with Liyiji to find a foreseer. Instead, they discover a troll possessed.

    Summary

    When a barrier between two worlds breaks, it provides an ample opportunity for two separated cultures to interact for the first time in ages. However, a band of ponies and gryphons on one of these two worlds come upon a spoken legend that foretells the end times that follow the barrier's destruction—whispers of aggravatingly vague omens to come. In addition to this, said group find six mares and a small drake from the sister world, each as perplexed as ever as to why the barrier broke.

    Yet none know how fast the clock ticks, nor of the forces at work in the shadows. Should they fail to stop whoever or whatever is behind the mess, a fated tragedy will strike—with all being plunged into their final, and darkest hour. But how will the differing groups stop the impending calamity, when they have but one meager piece of a proverbial puzzle, and such vast worldviews that are radical enough to spark fights between them?

    Summary

    Flying over a moonlit plain one night, a young military-trained, conscripted pegasus named Sora finds herself tangling with a grounded adversary—one who, admittedly, is a little bit on the deranged side of the fence. Having attracted strange cloaked ponies that seemingly want said adversary dead, Sora decides to act and takes her foe to be detained for her crimes, taking into account her worse-for-wear state.

    Yet with disapproval from a whole army's worth of ponies in uniform, especially those few in a high position of power who order her around, Sora stubbornly clings to her decision, and it's one that would be ill-advised in most other circumstances. This is something that she does not know could spark either an event as harmless as a dischargement... or lead to less than favorable consequences. Whatever the result, she'll have to make do, as will her adversary and anypony else who decides to get involved with them.

    But there is a wise saying of ages long lost, one Sora follows to the letter—it is short, simple, and much to her chagrin, the particular predicament she's wound up in. As a wise soul once said, all those countless ages ago: "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."

    Summary

    It was late at night when the couple arrived at the house in the middle of the woods. It was early in the morning when one of them left. This story, no matter the details between the entrance and exit, has been told millions of thousands of times. Why should this time be any different?

    Because it's an angry witch who lives in this house, that so many people have entered and never come out of.

    Even if lives is a strong word nowadays.

    And sometimes, the couple stays the night.
