    Summary

    The Elementals are a species unique to the surrounding life in a world much like Earth. They possess what are called Power Cubes, small cubes that store magical essence that gives them their powers.
    There has always been two rules in their world: One, don't break your Cube. Protect it at all costs. And two, NEVER Power Swap.
    Not much detail was ever given or spoken about regarding Power Swaps. So what really is Power Swapping? I guess you'll have to read to find out.

    Summary

    Kir's family hadn't seen him in years, his younger sister had never actually met him at all. Assuming him dead had been safer for everyone all around, and breaking what could be called a comforting illusion seldom went well.

    Kir himself hadn't seen his family in decades, and had consciously avoided thinking about them for years. Assuming them lost to him forever had been safer for everyone all around, and hoping for something else only made it easier to be hurt.

    But they all agreed that this was going to be hard.

    Summary

    Medrid just wants to be left alone as he struggles with classes at the Collegium. The young Changechild does not expect to be accepted, given his horrific history, but he could do without the paranoid scrutiny, false assumptions, and bullying.

    He's got a few good friends on his side, however, and the ghosts from his past are unexpectedly literal.

    Also, there's a girl.

    Summary

    A most unlikely Companion, permanently disabled by a leg injury, Chooses a Herald with no Gifts. Together, they may just have what it takes to save a terrifyingly powerful Changechild from his own madness.

    COMPLETE, with two finished sequels to be posted in the near future.

    (This series was written around 2002 for a print 'zine which then never saw the light of day, so the Valdemar fandom has never seen these stories before.)

    Summary

    Complete. See Part 2 of the series for continuation.

    This is a rationalfic take on "The Last Herald-Mage", inspired by HPMOR and other works. Accessible regardless of whether you've read the original series. Though far from perfect, the characters are trying to do their best with the information, intelligence, and skills they have. Unfortunately, their enemies are also doing that, and sometimes even reasonable decisions can turn out badly.

    Ashamed of him, Vanyel's father sends his disappointing son to live with his strict aunt, the Herald-Mage Savil. Although he knows things will change, Vanyel dramatically underestimates just how different his life is about to become. Sparks fly as he discovers both love and magic.

    Summary

    Story takes place early in the Valdemar chronology, when Mags is not yet a herald, still a trainee. The Collegia are nearing the end of their construction and the new programs are under development and financial strain. I deviate from the story a little, since I am not focusing on Mags and have not read through all 8 of the books that involve him.
