    Summary

    This is a rationalist and effective altruist take on the Last Herald-Mage trilogy, inspired by HPMOR, r!Animorphs: The Reckoning, and other works. From a starting point of "what if the characters were trying to be reasonable?" and "what if Leareth was a human being with real, complex motivations, rather than a cartoon villain?" I am seeing where it goes.

    Meta note: this fic is accessible regardless of whether you’ve read canon. It starts out a little slow, and book 1 is kind of a different genre from book 2 onward. Additional warning that book 2 onward gets pretty dark and this doesn't really let up. There will be 11 volumes.

    Major themes include the complexity of thinking about ethics, the challenge of taking on problems in the world that seem insurmountable, and trying to do good while dealing with serious mental health issues. The characters do not start out masters of rationality, but they do learn from their mistakes and grow as people, and do their best to help support each other.

    Summary

    Title: Bought and Paid For
    Rating: NC17
    Pairing(s): Spike/Xander
    Beta(s): Unbeta'd but proofread
    Part : Master Post
    Warnings : Dub dom/sub, Headgames
    Disclaimer: Hmmm, mine? Nah!
    Summary: Bought and paid for, but for what purpose?



    This is a series of fics based on the prompts from my angst bingo and hurt/comfort bingo cards. They didn't come from the mind of my normal muse – Lola Plot!bunny – they come from the dark mind of Hebony Dark!bunny.

    Will is a prostitute, Alex is a client. Alex buys Will for one night but doesn't let him go. And maybe Will doesn't want to get free. This series is full of mind!fucks and has an informal dom/sub theme running through it. There is no rough sex written but it is intimated at. There is, however, explicit male/male sex.

    Please. Take these warnings seriously – the first few chapters have already squicked a number of people because it is most definitely not my normal style. That said, welcome to the "Bought and Paid For Series" – strap yourself in because it's a bumpy ride!
