    Summary

    Eragon and Murtagh have grown up together with their uncle Garrow and cousin Roran since childhood. One night, they discover two stones; one blue, one red. When out from the stones hatch a pair of dragons, the brothers are pulled into the dangerous life of rogue Dragon Riders as they are hunted by the evil King Galbatorix and his terrifying servants. Taken in by storyteller Brom, they travel for the Varden, the resistance force fighting the empire.

    Eragon is barely 16, unprepared for the challenges ahead of them, and always getting into trouble. His dragon, Saphira, has her work cut out for her keeping him alive. But as their journey goes on, he finds his dreams plagued by a beautiful woman in terrible pain...a pain he must soon face himself.

    Murtagh is only just a man, worried that his younger brother is not ready for a life of war, and unsuspecting of his own origins. He and his dragon Thorn have plenty of things to keep an eye out for as their situation worsens. Though Murtagh thinks he understands the world, one of Galbatorix's hunters could shake everything he thought he knew.

    With the Varden just clinging on and their lives dangling by a thread, the brothers are in for the fight of their lives.

    Summary

    Eragon and Arya are finally living together in the East. The New Order of the dragon riders is growing, life is ordinary, and Alagaësia is peaceful, but there is an adventure they would like to embark on. Moving past the heartbreak of two miscarriages at the beginning of their relationship, and the knowledge that conceiving for them is difficult, Eragon and Arya will try to fulfil their desire to be parents. Will they defeat the odds?

    The story, ideally, takes place after the amazing work “Of Poems and Maps”. It is not strictly necessary to have read it first, but my story contains multiple references to life events Eragon and Arya went through in that fic. It begins around 10 years after "Of Poems and Maps" events and it explores one storyline the author left open.

    Summary

    They navigated for days. The days turned chillier. Until one day, an immense wall made of ice surged in the distance. When Eragon and Saphira discover Westeros, it's not exactly the place they expected to raise dragons and train riders.

    When Jon Snow woke up after the Battle of the Bastards, he never expected to see a blue dragon in the courtyard of Winterfell, let alone a talkative one.

    Summary

    This is a fan fiction of the series "The Inheritance Cycle" by Christopher Paolini.
    I do not own any of the characters or the world created by Paolini. The only things I own are my original characters.
    This is based off the first book, "Eragon." I highly suggest having read the full series beforehand, as not all of it will make sense if you haven't.

    Summary

    Updates fortnightly. Betad by talesoftime.
    An eighteen-year-old from another universe appears in an explosion of magic. Fascinated by Harry’s power, King Galbatorix draws him and the newly-hatched Tumbleweed to his side. Together they aim to overthrow the rebellious Varden, eliminate war in Alagaesia, and restore the Riders.

    The story of a boy who grew up in a cupboard, grew out from under Albus’ thumb—and now must grow into his own man.

    Warnings: @homophobes: unrequited Harry Potter/Murtagh Morzansson, @transphobes: use of neopronouns, @people new to either fandom: characters dying is a theme.

    Summary

    Eragon had been tracking a limping deer for a day or two now last I saw him, while I had been tracking a different section of the heard. Eragon was determined to get that one deer. I focused on a big one that looked like if this had been a wolf pack he would have been an alpha. I had just let loose my own arrow, when suddenly there was an explosion from both behind me in the direction Eragon was supposed to be and one to my right. I whipped my head in the direction to the one closes to me to see the weirdest thing. A smooth looking stone that looked to be midnight black.

    Summary

    Some 200 years after the fall of the dread king Galbatorix, two young dragon riders find themselves under the instruction of Eragon and his dragon Saphira, founders of the new dragon riders on their sanctuary island Edur. Dream and George, with their dragons Kiraka and Vindr, must grapple with their responsibilities to their people and their feelings for each other. (Tagged for war scenes, fantasy level violence. 16+)

    ----------
    “You looked like a work of art that night.” George’s voice startled Dream, the elf had surprised him with his words as he stared intently at the image on the wall, lost in a memory. Dream had little time to process what his friend had said, turning to look at him. The words froze in his mouth as he saw George slip on his shirt, a hint of the skin on his back visible for just a moment.
    “Maybe,” Dream finally choked out, “But it was up to you to capture it” he finished. “Consider yourself lucky” George smirked. “I shouldn’t feed your massive ego like that” he continued.
