    Summary

    Despite an official declaration of war from Sunhame, the 62nd Cavalry finds themselves running short of everything but enemies. With six weeks until the next supply train, and that timeline flexible depending on the whims of the flighty, foppish Son of Sun, their Sunpriest finds himself considering some truly wild options. After all, a Witch-horse had said it owed him.

    As Kir should have expected, crossing the border and finding his Herald was the easy part. Between Queens, Traitors, Firestarters and Witches, it was a miracle his actual mission had been completed at all. But it seemed miracles were becoming a bit more common in Karse than he had thought possible, with a new Son Rising.

    Summary

    Spring is the season of new beginnings and fresh growth, but the start of a war far too few believe is coming likely isn't quite what that sentiment intends. Between border-folk seeing signs years ago, oddly knowing soldiers pressing the issue whenever they can and support from the highest echelons of Sunhame, if not those they could use the direct assistance of, the Firestarters of Karse have more allies in this than they've had in centuries.

    But will allies from within be enough?

    Summary

    A collection of stand-alones considered 'canon' for the Friends Across Borders series, they just don't fit in the greater saga/stories proper.

    Chapter specific tags will be contained in the Author's Notes for each chapter.

    Without reading at least some of the Friends Across Borders series, you will be very lost.

    Summary

    Having travelled through Fall and endured a Killing Storm early in Winter, Avery had reached his destination. However, he was no closer to understanding anything about his mission. Winter is normally a time of family and hibernation.

    In Haven, there is much that is still happening. Winter Solstice holidays, assassins and spies still loose in the city, poor people in the underbelly and dark alleys trying not to freeze or starve to death, dangers of ice and the rushing half-frozen river through the city, hidden cruelties in unlikely places, mysteries to be solved... and hopefully friendships or relationships to be made, bonds to be strengthened.

    From the snowstorm of one year to the snowflakes of the next...

    Summary

    A Herald and a Sunpriest walked into a stable, and emerged unscathed, ten months ago. Firestarter Kir Dinesh receives a letter, asking him a deceptively simple question. How does he feel about a spot of treasonous heresy?

    He tells himself he's just going to go and see what is going on, but the moment he didn't burn the letter to ash the question was answered and his path in the priesthood took a sharp turn to the right.

    Summary

    The Theory: Herald Anur wanted to find out just what his one-night friend meant by claiming the title Firestarter, so he went to the local expert for some answers.

    The Practice: Sunpriest Dinesh had more to worry about than contemplating the one-night meeting with a Herald, what with Ancar's raids, losing his unit's trust, and all the blasted screaming.

    Summary

    Inns in Hardorn border towns are neutral grounds, so long as the Sunsguard don't see the Herald and the Valdemarans don't see the priests. Usually this works fine, but one evening found Valdemarans with a Herald and Sunsguard with a priest at the same inn. Two groups of guards signal their outliers, and their outliers reluctantly retreat to the stables for a frigid night.

    Turns out, it's too cold to kill ancient enemies. Much easier to swap drinks and tales under a night-long truce, figuring nothing will change in the morning.

    And it doesn't. Not yet. But, it just might.

    Summary

    Fix-it fic. Savil lives, Vanyel lives, but in the world of Valdemar, living happily ever after never comes easily for Heralds. Pretty much everything else happens as it does in the books, except Van actually has to deal with the aftermath of his assault at the hands of Lord Rendan's men. Only detailed non-con is canon from Magic's Price.

    Summary

    PLEASE READ SUMMARY. NONE of these fics are meant to be taken seriously. This is going to be a compilation of short stories featuring various characters, usually in nonsense crossovers, that I wrote throughout my middle school and early high school years. So we're talking between around 2008-2012ish. The writing is not good, I'll warn you already. There's hardly a semblance of a plot. These were written for one purpose and one purpose only: to be random. It was my delightful OMG so random XD phase where writing dumb, edgy things was all the rage and at the time I only shared these with close friends and otherwise kept them for myself to enjoy, printed out and stapled together as if they were books.

    But I have decided it is time. It is time to compile them online and unleash them upon an unsuspecting world. It brought me much joy to reread these despite how over the top and edgy they are. So with that in mind, if you're curious to see the nonsense I wrote when I was a tween, please continue. I do not expect any constructive criticism and don't want it. Some of this is over a decade old so I KNOW it's bad. It's being posted for entertainment purposes only. Enjoy!
