    Summary

    “The Midgardians believed that a giant dragon lived below Yggdrasil, the tree which encompasses all worlds. Nidhogg, they called him, the Malice Striker. He gnawed on Yggdrasil’s roots, feeding on its life-force. Another wonderful example how humans just catastrophize and butcher the truth at their whim. If they had ever set eyes on a true dragon, held council with them, shared a tiny bit of their wondrous magic, such childish legends would never have come to be. Then again, dragons can be quite petrifying.” – Odin

    In his youth, not yet consumed by jealousy and anger against his brother, Loki had a strange meeting with a seemingly reckless woman. Many years later, she returns and is introduced to him as a dragon - one of the ancient guardians of Yggdrasil - with the task of evaluating his former crimes, and Loki finds himself facing a whole different conflict. Can he overcome the poisonous inner demon that had driven him for so long? Or will he choose to walk in shadow once more, pulling the single light that remains with him into the darkness?

    Summary

    "Did you really think that the old legends just died out and the only heroes around were the ones you brought back from the dead? Do you read at all? Asking some of the gods to keep it in their pants is like telling the knights around here to give up chivalry. Not gonna happen. We're still around, we just prefer to keep to ourselves."

    No child chooses their parentage, and Theresa Macdonough has long since decided that if she could have, she would have opted out of her godly heritage. It's made for a difficult life, despite the nice gifts Grandfather occasionally sends and the amusing visits from her great uncle. It's what draws the eye of Chaldea, for instance, the director of which seems to have it in his head that modern demigods are one of the keys to saving humanity that the organization has been searching for. She has no desire to be a hero, despite her natural tendency toward protecting others.
    For her pseudo-sister, Helena, things are very different. With only a small trace of human blood in her veins, she has never felt at home among humans, or even among her fellow demigods. Chaldea provides the safety and sense of belonging she desires. And, perhaps, even, the love she never thought she would have.

Mortals cannot hope to comprehend but if one risked its volatile temper, they would either gain great insight or risk being burned to sunder...Ivar, the son of Ragnar, had never been one to toss aside risk in exchange for the comfort of safety.

    Summary

    Brienne, daughter of Jarl Selwyn, finds herself at a point in her life where the home she sacrificed so much for seems in danger. Not only is she confronted with societal conventions running contrary to what the norns foretold, but also with a stranger coming to their small village North of the Vale:

    The Kingslayer, Jaime Tywinson, a man whose dark reputation reaches into every corner of the continent.

    While the man from Casterly Rock refuses to reveal his true intentions that led him to those stranger lands, it leaves the jarl with the tough decision of what to do with the Kingslayer now that he has invaded their territories, so not to bring Tywin Lannister up against them. After all, Selwyn does not wish for war, in contrast to most other jarls.

    Thus, the norns bind the fate of the warrior and the shieldmaiden together in the most unexpected ways, wherein both have to realize that they have a lot more in common than meets the eye, as the two share in dark secrets from the past, painted in green flames.

    However, just like the world is bound to repeat itself, those dark secrets may come back to light in the future close by.

    And so, the norns weave their destiny, for better or worse...

    Summary

    Two sons are born to two mighty kings of two glorious kingdoms, two brave warriors who have engaged in an eternal battle that can only end with one or both of them dead. Yet when their actions threaten to break the ancient truce between their realms and they are punished with banishment to faraway Midgard they have to find a way to make amends or risk never to return home.

    Or, as Darcy Lewis might put it, Thor and Loki cause trouble one too many times and their fathers decide it is safer to sent them to Earth for a while before they cause an inter-galactic war. In their exile the two aliens have to deal with nosy Shield agents, severe culture shock, clashing beliefs and old, unresolved issues.

    A re-telling of the first Thor movie showing both sides of the Asgard/Jötunheimr conflict that proves you would need more than three days to redeem yourself to a godly father. Or to turn enemies into friends.

    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

    Kate's a normal teenage Midgardian girl. She's much too young to deal with falling in love with The God of Mischief; especially when, according to her religion, he isn't even an actual god. But, when there's an immortal man living in your closet, it's difficult for things to be "normal."

    Summary

    Darcy Lewis’ current life consists of risking her breakable, non-superpowered life and limb against weird physics crap. She still doesn't know much about quantum mechanics, but she valued her friendships by their weight in gold so she stays as Jane’s assistant. The astrophysicist was only too glad for Darcy’s ability to see through possible political ramifications of her scientific findings and Darcy was happy to stay.

    Oddly enough, Darcy’s fine with this life.

    Yet even those shenanigans were nothing compared to the power plays and political chess she was driven to read and learn—there was nothing in her life of that calibre. Though she didn’t want to admit it, she craved for something more.

    Enter one Loki of Asgard, captive of the Avengers. With his magic bound, the most harm he could do was shredding someone’s ego with his sharp tongue. Darcy is up to the challenge and he'll soon find out there's more to her than meets the eye. Behind all this, dark plans laid against the earth unfolds. Jane and Darcy hunts for the truth with the power of SCIENCE!

    Let the games begin.

    Summary

    Tony's been waiting for his soulmate for over thirty years; Loki's been waiting for over a millenium.

    That doesn't mean either of them knows what to actually do with a soulmate, once they've met.

    (Or: What Thor the movie would have looked like if it was a soulmates AU with Tony Stark in it.)
