    Summary

    The Reader is lying down in the Sandfolds after an unpleasant trip down the Sclorian river when a group that refers themselves as the Chastity stops and rescues her. Now, as their designated Reader, she is supposed to carry them through the Rites for a chance at liberation from the Downside. Will she be able to do that in a triumvirate composed by former members of the Commonwealth upper class, who think that the only way of winning is by bending the rules and bribing their opponents?

    It is said that when the stars align, the Rites shall come to bear. But now there are no more stars, and the Rites have ended alongside them. The Reader has been left in the Downside, their future undetermined. Yet despite the troubles they faced during the Rites, they will find it was nothing compared to the trials that await them now. Happy endings are not so easy to obtain. (Tags will be updated as the story progresses)

    Summary

    The Reader falls, and understands nothing. The words being said between their friends hold no meaning to them. The ends up not being as much of a problem as it should be.

    This is my first fic! I've had this on the mind since I learned that the Book of Rites and the songs are canon in English, and the characters speak a semi-conlang, Sahrian!

    completely unbeta'd.

    Summary

    Somehow, they all make it out alive, the Downside a long distant memory; but, they are not, and they all find their own way within the newly instated Sahran Union - together.

    Some self-indulgent snippets exploring and expanding all the possible relationship endings in the game, and a little bit more on top of that.

    Summary

    Sometimes when her mother was weary enough, when her father’s been gone too long on the Bloodborder, she’d tell her, in hushed tones, about the Harps.
    She barely remembers the tales now, but one sentence haunts her still:
    “They are us, Jodariel. Perhaps they have wings and talons and soar higher than we can imagine, but we share the same curse: we are people.”

    Or
    They start on opposite ends. They don't end that way.

    Summary

    When you make a promise, you ought to keep it, whatever it takes. But nothing is ever that simple in the Downside. After finding a Reader in the Sandfolds, Hedwyn makes a promise - but is it a promise that he can keep, without breaking certain other vows he made? Can he bring himself to make good on his word when so much has changed since he gave it? Is it even physically possible? He never expected to be faced with such questions, but as he and his friends are plunged into the Rites, he'll fight to find the best answers he can - whatever it takes.

    Summary

    Thoughts were foggy for the first few-- how long even was it? Weeks? Mere days? It all rolled together into a confusing mess in the Reader's mind. Starvation, dehydration, and other such suffering weren't known to do wonders for the mind. So of course, in the fog of near-death, the first friendly face, one who fed and sheltered and cared for them, would resemble a cherished friend from long ago. The Reader brushed the thought aside, focusing on survival, on the sound of Hedwyn's voice.
