    Summary

    Take History. Add Dragons. Stir until a Genius makes friends with them and things explode. Take the resulting stock of Hiccup and tamed dragons and set it to simmering in 1040 AD, in the Scottish Hebrides. Add more Kings, Emperors, Romans, Vikings, Conquerors, Spies, Warriors, Thieves, Knights and Nobles, to taste. Take cover, and sit back to watch the fireworks.

    In Real Life, 1040 was the tail end of the Viking Age; Europe was 50 years from the First Crusade; the Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches have not yet formally split, William the Conqueror is a frightened teenager in Normandy, the Byzantine Empire is collapsing after a revival under one of their great emperors, and the great Viking Harald Hardrada is a Varangian mercenary there, while the Caliphates are having a rough time from the new Seljuk Empire and their own internal tensions. The most corrupt Pope in history holds Rome, the Reconquista of Spain is underway after the collapse of the Caliphate of Cordoba, and the Norse religion is a pale shadow of what it once was, hanging on around the Baltic Sea, Iceland, Greenland... and the Hebrides.

    And into that heady mix, there is now Hiccup and Berk.

    Yeah, history won't know what hit it.

    Summary

    The adventures of the Colonial Rite of the Templar Order during the French-Indian War as told by each member. As the Templars prosper during the war, extending their control steadily over the Colonies they utilise a gift that not even the Assassins are aware of: they are werewolves.

    Haytham has every intention of using this is to his advantage: within his pack, among the humans and against the Assassin Brotherhood.

    It is perhaps unfortunate that two of their members Ben Church and Charles Lee are not aware that their fellow brothers are werewolves. However, this will be remedied soon as Haytham has every intention of offering up this precious gift. Whether they have the choice to refuse is another thing.

    Ben and Charles are shortly going to realise that werewolves aren’t patient with things – or people – they want and there is no option out.

    The other pack members are simply amused and horrified by turns, but in John Pitcairn’s opinion the sooner they are a full pack the better. William has enough on his hands co-ordinating the alliance with the Six Nations. Thomas as usual is in it for the money, women and bloodlust: more in the know the better the hunt.

    Summary

    ´Always be polite, no matter the situation`, her mother taught her. She looks at the young man, looking at the cup and back at the young man again. “It’s true what they say… blondes are not really the smartest one around…”
    “The rope, Daniel,” sighs the Lieutenant, “the rope… under the promise to keep your hands by yourself.”
    “I won’t dismiss a cup of fresh tea.”
    With a nod of the Lieutenant the young man unties the rope that holds her hands together, but still he keeps as much distant as possible.

    Summary

    Treville,

    For the last time – no. Stop asking.

    Louis

    Treville takes a careful breath, a deliberate moistening of his lower lip, before looking up and asking the servant: “And where is the King currently?”

    “Monsieur, he…” the man trails into silence.

    Summary

    If he’s honest with himself, he gets a kick out of watching Athos lose his temper. With other people, obviously. And with toffs in particular.

    “Now look here!” one of them, red-faced old sot that he is, blusters.

    “Kill tallies,” says Athos, clipped and dark, finger pointing at a report. “Positions captured,” he points again. “Prisoners taken,” and again. “Mortality rates,” and his voice doesn’t even quiver. “The numbers speak for themselves. And you want to send them out like common cannon fodder,” he spits, elegant as a rapier, black-clad body half-turned as though they’re barely worth his attention.

    Summary

    "They surrounded him, the soldiers. They seized him roughly, hauling him from his seat, dragging him from his home. They left scattered papers and splattered ink in their wake, splintered wood and broken dishes.
    The scholar was numb as he was hauled onto a cart, with others like him, those scholars who dared a word against their perfect emperor.
    He was surrounded by those who dared to whisper.
    And he would die among them."

    Wang Yao has lived a long life- he has the scars to prove it. And as always, every scar tells a story. Some scars tell longer stories than others, though, and those are the ones that truly hurt. And those hurt not only the body, but the soul. Those scars, inevitably, will last as long as their stories.
    An eternity.
