    Summary

    War is coming to Valdemar. Herald-Mage Vanyel sees a vision of his future, a destiny that apparently only he can fulfill. He expects to die for his Kingdom, in ten or twenty years, fighting a mysterious dark mage in the north. In the meantime, all he can do is try to put his life back together, learn to be a Herald, and prepare for what's coming, with the support of his aunt Savil and the community of Heralds.

    However, it turns out that the future is a lot more complicated than he expected.

    Covers the next few years post-Magic's Pawn. Part three of "A Song for Two Voices" AU.

    Summary

    This is a rationalfic take on "The Last Herald-Mage", inspired by HPMOR and other works. Accessible regardless of whether you've read the original series. Though far from perfect, the characters are trying to do their best with the information, intelligence, and skills they have. Unfortunately, their enemies are also doing that, and sometimes even reasonable decisions can turn out badly.

    [Meta note: this starts out a bit slow, and book 1 is kind of a different genre from the rest. In particular, the rationalist content is fairly subtle at the start, and the effective altruism themes come out a lot more towards the end of book 2 and early book 3. If you’re moderately enjoying book 1 but a little bored, try sticking it out until the end of book 2.]

    Ashamed of him, Vanyel's father sends his disappointing son to live with his strict aunt, the Herald-Mage Savil. Although he knows things will change, Vanyel dramatically underestimates just how different his life is about to become. Sparks fly as he discovers both love and magic.

    Summary

    So they parted ways at the end of In the Bleak Mid-Winter (and if you haven't, you should read that before this, it continues from there) but there's no way Van and Stef aren't going to find each other again. They've both got a lot of stuff to deal with.

    ...I hate titles. Yay for Christmas getting songs stuck in my head!

    Summary

    “I won’t leave you,” Vanyel pledged, his grip tightening on his lute. “And I won’t let anyone take you from me, either.”

    Tylendel’s heart ached at the words. He wished he could believe that either of them would have any choice.

    Summary

    Young Stefen gets wind that some fancy lady dressed all in red is looking for a street singer and manages to avoid her--and isn't ever taken to Haven. He has a much rougher time of it and he and Van only meet later, after the other Herald-Mages are killed and Vanyel is heading north to finally face his country's unknown enemy.

    (This has nothing to do with Christmas, but it is bleak and winter-y and Christmas songs are...you know, pervasive this time of year.)
