    Summary

    Madeleine Seraphine doesn't want to be a farmer; she wants to fight and have fun, whether she is covered in blood or not. As the only girl amongst four brother's, she grew up sparring, hunting, and rough-housing. The only thing she wants is to be able to live her life and not be held back by her family's expectations of her. After having to return home due to her mother's illness, however, she quickly discovered that she couldn't live at home peacefully anymore; all she wanted to do was fight and argue. Perhaps thinking she was trapped, she takes a mysterious mercenary leader's offer to join him...

    Summary

    What was it about being buried alive that instilled fear? Was it the weight that compressed around our very bodies, ceasing any movement? The forever darkness shrouding our sense of visible escape? The sound of bugs skittering and shallow breaths seemingly echoing through the soil? A thrumming heart thrashing around the cage of ribs, beating frantic like a looney against our sternum? Or even the water-logged voices and thumps of passerby's who fell deaf to the plea's and woe's beneath their feet?

     

    Irah hadn't a single clue why she had awoken in the embrace of damp dirt or how she had gotten there in the first place and with the dodgy patch-work tale of her identity woven by the hands of the infamously strange palace court, she had not a clue of who to believe. The alluring courtier's with their endearingly queer habits? or the white haired magician stubborn in his pursuit to reclaim her lost memories?

    Summary

    For over a century magic has been dying in Vesuvia, and with the death of the last vampire it is believed that only humans remain. For decades an icy vengeance is left untouched, forgotten to the forest until a storm washes in a Witch unprepared for the doorstep they find themselves upon.

    Fated to the fangs of a monster who has long given up on the world, it is up to Mars Atabey to shoulder the sorrows of Fae and Human alike. With the growing sense that magic is still out there, yearning to be celebrated once again, it is up to him and an uncanny cast of creatures to let the world know.

    Wherever he finds himself, there’s always adventure, love, tragedy, and a gratuitous amount of sex to be had.

    (This was a one-off rp that turned into an entire novel on accident. Please enjoy me and Lord Ignatius III's terrible horny nonsense.)

    Summary

    Takes place after the events of Muriel’s route. The Apprentice is named and uses he/him, but it’s mentioned pretty rarely. Written in first person, which I almost never do but it felt weird writing an arcana fic in anything else XD

    Summary

    You were still at the job at your aunt's cafe you’d been stuck at since coming to the city right out of college. You were thankful to your aunt certainly. She had given you a way to make a living and also allowed the occasional off day for auditions. But you felt like you were dying in the city of Angels. You weren’t the only one. So many just like you came to Los Angeles to be somebody. It just was maddeningly frustrating to feel like you were going nowhere any time soon. However, all of that was going to change when a rare opporunity falls right into your lap and leads you into the limelight.
    (It's mostly going to be gender neutral except for a few chapters. Then it'll be kind of like a sexy 'Choose your own Adventure' chapter selection. You pick between male/female)

    Summary

    It has been three years since the Red Plague prowled the streets in search of victims, its claim of commoners and counts alike proving that all are indeed equal in death. Three years since a court magician with a love for the simpler things in life had graced the halls of Vesuvia’s palace, melting the heart of a distant consul with sparkling magics and tender touches. For many, it has been three years of peace, of respite and silence in the aftermath of a great and seemingly unstoppable storm.

    For Consul Valerius, however, it has been three years of turmoil, of a secret, maddening grief drowned by bitter wines, by Golden Goose, by whatever his shaking hands can reach in the dim hours of twilight. What may have started as good intentions or even purely self-preservation has shriveled into greed and carelessness, especially with the return of the Countess.

    Though, hers is not the only familiar face to resurface after all this time. Nor is it the one which concerns him most. For perhaps the first time in over three years, Valerius can no longer afford apathy, inaction. Not when you’ve returned. Not when you’ve come back.

    Not when you may vanish once again - forever.

    Summary

    Valerius has never stopped resenting Lucio for all the things he took and didn't earn - from the power and title that should have gone to Valerius, to the Prakran princess he married, who looks on the smitten Consul only as a friend.

    But when Nadia falls into a never-ending sleep, Valerius' obsessive passion for the Countess leaves him vulnerable to a particularly crafty Arcana with plans of his own. And while he might be familiar enough with magic to know that the woman visiting him at night isn't the real Nadia Satrinava, Valerius has no idea that he's been fucking the Devil all along . . . and surrendering another piece of his soul every time.

    Can the real Nadia find him in the Hierophant's realm and save him before he loses the last traces of himself? And what happens when she finds out exactly how he gave his soul away in the first place?

    Summary

    If cannon leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, then the logical next step is to kill it and start anew.

    So let's try it all again, just a little to the left.

     

    You are a student of the magical arts, studying under your master Asra. Though, he has taught you far more than just magic. Three years ago, you lost all your memories, and Asra is the one who taught you how to stand and how to walk all over again. As supportive as he is, Asra cannot save you from another loss of your memories. So when a threat looms over Vesuvia, you find yourself following a forgettable figure who you're determined to remember.

    As the card of the hermit reads; Travel within, to learn of thyself, and teach what you know to those that you know.

    Be weary of where you tread, dear apprentice. Take care not to get lost as you travel within.

    Summary

    Lucio is an arrogant, self centred, prick. He is vain, volatile, selfish, and denies things he disagrees with in an exceptionally petulant manner. As a fellow mercenary, you despised him, his cocky smirk, his ability with a blade, and especially the way his lips were so skilled...
