    Summary

    Many things are said of house Arryn and its members' honour. Is it not their motto, after all? As High as Honour... Fewer things are said of the house's heiress, Shara Arryn, for fear that she might hear them and retaliate.

    Witted Shara Arryn, treacherous Shara Arryn, whose schemes only led to the Red Keep's cells after the disaster of the Battle of the Blackwater. She should have died there, forgotten of all, but a victorious Tywin Lannister has other plans for her.

    But it takes more than a gilded cage to stop a falcon from flying away.

    Summary

    The war has not gone well for anyone. The Alliance has three months left before collapse. The Horde is not much better off. With neither victory or death as options, Sylvanas proposes an alternative. A treaty, to ease tensions and open borders, with a political hostage to ensure that both sides stay in line. A marriage with many political implications and Sylvanas would only accept one person. Jaina Proudmoore.

    And Jaina Proudmoore made for the perfect hostage. If the Alliance moves wrong, Jaina dies. The Horde attacks, and Jaina reduces Orgrimmar to a wisp of a memory in the minds of children.

    Of course, no one expected Sylvanas and Jaina to be anything more than uneasy partners with each other, least of all Sylvanas and Jaina...

    Summary

    When Midoriya Izuku is 13 years old, he is kidnapped on his way home from school by a villain.
    One year later he is found and returned home with some scars, no memories of the events he went through, and a latent fire quirk.
     

    Izuku has to live a double life if he and his loved ones are to survive, even if that means lying to everyone and committing deeds that he’s not sure the heroes would forgive him for. He just needs to come up with a plan to defeat one of the most powerful men in the world, maintain both of his covers in the presence of enemies and allies alike, and hopefully not forget the “real” him.

    Bakugou Katsuki is certain that Izuku has been lying to everyone since the day he had been rescued. And he’s going to figure out his secret.

    Summary

    This is not a happy ending. This is not the struggle until dawn. This is 10 years of falling further into darkness.

    After bidding farewell to her twin brother, Reina Lucis Caelum is resigned to surviving ten long years of darkness awaiting his return, but with the rest of the royal line gone, all of Eos seems determined to dump Lucis in her lap: crown, ring, and all. It's a shame that no one thought to mention her estranged ancestor with an affinity for daemons who seems to know more about her than she does, herself.

    Summary

    “I knew you'd be along, sooner or later, Granger. We both know, between Wonderboy and his pet Weasel, you're the only one with the brains enough to figure it all out. Being what you are, it's only right for you to feel a little... threatened.” he said, his voice cooling now.

    Summary

    Caitlyn Hawke and Anders have big plans. With noble support and a useful, if corrupt, ally in Mother Petrice, Hawke intends to use the Qunari crisis to get Grand Cleric Elthina replaced with her own ally. She also has a certain big ambition of her own and a list of reforms if she succeeds: limit Meredith Stannard's influence, reform Kirkwall’s Circle, make foreign alliances, and get the formal backing of Divine Justinia to safeguard her position as a mage leader and protect her and Anders’ mage son from being taken away. But Meredith also has allies and is not ceding power without a fight—a very dirty and bloody one if necessary.

    Meanwhile, Anders doesn’t think Caitlyn goes far enough with her reforms, and he—or perhaps Justice—also thinks she risks failure by playing by traditional political rules against a foe who thinks she is above rules. Meredith killed a previous Viscount, after all....

    (Canon-divergent. Reading Part 1, Spells of Healing, is recommended but not strictly necessary.)

    Summary

    Life doesn't always go the way you want it to. Sometimes it just throws you in a garbage can and lights the garbage can on fire and laughs as you scream in agony. And all you can do is tell yourself that it'll be okay. That you'll be okay. And sometimes you're right and you wake up the next morning to a wonderful day full of sunshine and rainbows and singing birds and you start living life in a damn Disney movie.

    Other times you're wrong. The cycle just continues. Maybe Life adds lighter fluid next time. Or fills the bottom of the can with dead fish. And it's up to you to get up off your sorry ass and do something to fix your life because it is clear that you're basically alone. When there's no hero coming to save you, you're forced to save yourself. Be your own hero.

    Izuku decides the best way to be a hero is to be a teacher.
