    Summary

    Inspired by a tumblr post by libations-of-honey-and-milk:

    In fairy tales and fantasy, two types of people go in towers: princesses and wizards.

    Princesses are placed there against their will or with the intention of ‘keeping them safe.’

    This is very different from wizards, who seek out towers to hone their sorcery in solitude.

    I would like a story where a princess is placed in an abandoned tower that used to belong to a wizard, and so she spends long years learning the craft of wizardry from the scraps left behind and becomes the most powerful magic wielder the world has seen in centuries, busts out of the tower and wreaks glorious, bloody vengeance on the fools that imprisoned her.
    That would be my kind of story.

    Summary

    "When did you start to remember?" He asked next, relaxing further in his seat, which Kyo found calming.

    Kyo wakes up in a strange place, not sure what year it is or what is going on or if anything she remembers is actually reliable. So she just does what she's always done; live her life. It soon enough becomes more about survival than anything else.

    In which another lease on life is a bit more complicated than Kyo had at first anticipated.

    Summary

    "The face of Cersei's husband is as frozen as the forest around them. The swords of the Rebellion have left the kingdoms torn open and red with blood but the North has been spared. Untouched, her handmaiden had sighed when they first stepped out of the walls of Winterfell. Cersei had said nothing. Not untouched, she had thought. Cold. Colourless. Barren.

    Yet it is this cold, colourless, barren wasteland that is to be her home now."

     

     

    Fill for kink meme prompt: "AU where Robert must marry Catelyn Tully if he wants her father's support in the Rebellion. Jon Arryn talks Ned into marrying Cersei, with Jaime still in the King's Guard in King's Landing. How does Cersei change when she's married to Ned instead of Robert, a man that respects her and treats her kindly? Would love to see a redeemed-Cersei as Lady of Winterfell. And any drama with infant Jon Snow would be great."

    Summary

    Work in progress. "Search for the value of that which you seek, for alchemy already knows." Alchemy knew what Edward wanted when his fingertips touched that circle, but Edward did not yet understand how value differs from price, how equivalent differs from equal. The Gate calculates with one small difference, and Trisha Elric lives - but the cost may be too high for Edward to afford.

    [ Originally published on FFN 16 June 2009. A very detailed, very slow exploration of the creators' headcanon through Edward's eyes - and sometimes Roy's - with lengthy discourses on alchemical theory, juicy helpings of political intrigue, a few near-death experiences here and there, and maybe an assassination attempt or two. Explores in detail the political and social spheres of Amestris and beyond in the context of Roy's ladder-climbing, aided by Edward's presence as a researcher. You could consider this a fix-it, but it's more like a highly involved worldbuilding reboot. Long-running, takes time between updates, but chapters are 20-30k long. Be prepared to indulge and suspend your disbelief. Leave canon at the doorstep; this is something else entirely. ]
