    Summary

    skipping stones, we know the price now
    any sin will do
    how much further, if you can spin?
    how much further, if you are smooth?
    - Indigo Girls, "Kid Fears"
     

    She works it out, gradually, painfully. You have to know what they want you to say, but that’s not enough; you have to mean it.

    (Or: The life and times of Cassandra Johanna von Musel Klossowski de Rolo.)

    “I may not have a quarter of your talent or your knowledge in this realm, Hamilton; I wholly concede your expertise in the magical arts. But also I know you, and it has become increasingly clear to me that something is the matter, and my conscience, and my great esteem for your skill and its essential place in this Army, compel me to offer whatever aid I may, in the spirit of friendship.”

    Summary

    “I’ve come to state once more my request for a field command--” The general’s eyes narrowed. “--and to discuss my role in the campaign more generally. Now that my talents must be applied outside the family, so to speak.”

    Of course.

    “Now that you’ve quit my staff, you mean,” the general said.

    “Yes,” Hamilton said. “As you say, sir.”

    The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    ::2019 note: This story was written BEFORE the TV show introduced the character of Gwaine. It's not that I can't spell, or that I'm perversely writing him out of character - I incorporated other characters from Arthurian legend (Kay, Gawain etc) into my story, and lacking prophetic abilities, my versions naturally don't mesh with the versions subsequently introduced into the show.::

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Five Armies, Bilbo lies as still as death, and no earthly force will wake him. When a ghostly apparition offers Thorin the chance to recover Bilbo's absent spirit from the underworld, he accepts without hesitation.

    So begins the second Quest of Thorin's lifetime.

    Through half-remembered dreams and terrifying nightmares, beyond strange worlds to stranger shores, the Heirs of Durin will tirelessly, doggedly search for their burglar.

    This is their task, their penance: find Bilbo, or else be condemned to wander forever more, never to return home.

    Summary

    One accident changes Arthur's life forever. Now he is living with an amnesiac housemate in a crumbling cabin in a town so small most maps forget. He isn't sure which is more troubling, the fact he is deeply attracted to someone who might possibly have a family waiting for him, or the odd things which seem to keep happening ever since they met.
