    Summary

    Harry has reached a very bitter and jaded thirty. His efforts to reform the Ministry haven’t lessened the corruption or pure-blood bigotry one bit. That’s when he finds out that he’s apparently a part of a pure-blood nobility he’s never heard of before; he’s Lord Potter and Lord Black. Unfortunately, that revelation’s come too late for him to be a reformer. All Harry wants to do is tear the system down and salt the earth. And with a double Lordship, he just might have the power to do that.

    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

    In the months after the conclusion of the Trade Federation’s embargo of Naboo, Count Dooku returns to Coruscant with a visitor in tow, with the intent to change the future.

    (I know. It’s been done before. Read this one too anyway.)

    Bit of a deconstructive take on “trying to change the ‘fictional timeline’ fic" but one that goes in for the long haul across generations.

    And because it’s me, HEAVY emphasis on the politics.

    Summary

    Gytha Bark-Shod only agreed to wear the clothes from Radiant Raiment because she needed the money. She certainly didn't plan on being mistaken for an adventurer, saving Solitude (and the world) and falling in love with its beautiful Jarl.

    Fortunately for Skyrim, the gods had other ideas.

    Summary

    Raised to be king, T’Challa had always known he would have to choose his spouse for more than love. A good king served his people first and himself second – if he was truly lucky, these two desires aligned but if they didn’t a good king would choose the greater good.

    In the wake of Wakanda revealing itself to the world and Asgard's destruction, T'Challa and Thor choose to serve the greater good.

    Summary

    Following a raid on a Russian squib's Cleveland home, Hermione finds herself in possession of a slim red book that is the key to one of the greatest conspiracies in American Muggle Government history. As she moves to expose the truth, a series of events find her fighting for her life against the Winter Soldier.

    Desperate to survive, she recites a string of Russian words she hopes will stop him. Accidental magic, caused by her unbridled panic, occurs in conjunction with their recitation. The Soldier, much to Hermione's horror, is magically bound to her, trapped in his programming to follow his handler’s orders. Meanwhile, Hydra is attempting to infiltrate the Magical World politically. Tensions run high between Muggle and Magical governments as the Avengers come into the public limelight.

    Thus a desperate quest to free the man--as well as protect the world from self-destruction--ensues.

    Summary

    When Kianoush is taken in his sister's stead to complete a treaty between the kingdom of Istaqa and the Ralendran Empire, he's thrust into a plot to unseat an Emperor and bring a country to ruin--but first, he must come to terms with his unreasonable infatuation with Ralendra's Crown Prince. Not to mention all the difficulties being concubine to the Beloved of the Gods entails.

    Arienkhut must tend to his duties as Beloved of the Gods, but when he's presented with Kianoush as his concubine instead of the young Istaqan prince's sister, he must come to terms with who and what he is, and his deepening infatuation with Kian. While trying to keep Kianoush at arms length, he discovers the plot to unseat his father and begins to wonder just who their enemies really are.

    Summary

    Damianos is being sent to the prince of Kumat, who will take him as a husband; this is among the terms of the treaty that will end the war at last. Unless, presumably, he displeases the prince and is executed, which seems to him as though it is all too likely. But perhaps they will only dislike each other a little. Perhaps the prince will find Damianos's looks to his taste, and be willing to fuck Damianos at least the necessary once. That would not be so bad.

    It is too improbable to be worth contemplating, that perhaps they will each please the other very much indeed, and like each other, and be happy. Far, far too improbable. And even if by some chance it were so—too many dangers would yet remain for it to have any hope of lasting.

    Summary

    Where Krolia took baby Keith with her instead of leaving him on Earth, entrusting him in Altean care because being half-galra and not looking galra was a particularly dangerous thing since the war began. (Where Daibazaal was not destroyed but the resource-race brings everyone down the same slippery path).

    Keith grows up alongside the Altean heir adjacent: Lance. They become inseparable; even on those rare occasions where Lance goes off-planet without Keith, it’s never for very long.

    Until one day, Lance's envoy never makes it back to Altea.

    Summary

    The Age of Heroes never ended. Aegon never conquered. The North remained.

    There was a time once, when the Kings of Winter ruled the North. However, it all fell into chaos, when Torrhen Stark tried to bring about an age of peace between the kingdoms, only for war to start again. The kingdoms fought, and their underlings rose up in rebellion. Like it had been a thousand years ago, a hundred kings came to rule their part of Westeros.

    Now a bastard of Winterfell has arrived home again. He found only a dead father and a dead brother, and a crown upon his head. Jon Stark, though, remembered seeing a King Beyond the Wall, a man who could bring an entire people together. He would follow Mance Rayder’s example, and unite the North. Winter Is Coming.

    Also, the Starks all have direwolves, are open wargs, occasionally engage in incestual marriages, and Jon takes Arya and Sansa as wives.

    For those who don’t like Jonsa or Jonrya, I am trying to make them a little different and OOC. Give it a try.

    Summary

    Loki has gone back to his old tricks, but he claims to have a good reason this time: to stop the impending destruction of both Midgard and New Asgard. He seeks Thor's help in preventing the cataclysm, but is Loki truly trying to save Midgard? Will he allow it to be destroyed? Is he up to something else entirely?

    Thor must negotiate Loki's tangled web of truth and lies-- and learn for once and for all the truth of his brother's heart-- if he is to save his people, their new home, and 8 billion innocent Midgardians.

    ABANDONED due to the sheer volume of toxic gatekeeping and vicious intolerance in this fandom. I will not be writing in the MCU again if I can help it.
