    Summary

    “Will I see you this evening?” he asked, dismayed by the pathetically hopeful tone in his voice.
    “I have quite a lot to do. Accommodating your presence in the city and in my home.” Tamina’s eyes grew hard. “Assessing the damage.” She turned away dismissively. “Perhaps in a day or two.”
    Dastan clenched his fists in sudden anger. She's going to keep me at arm’s length. Ignore me.

    Damned if I'll let her.

    A new beginning, a second chance. Dastan knows what he wants but how can he break through Tamina's protective walls? To convince her to set aside the mask she wears like armour. To let him into her heart again.
    A love story that explores the aftermath and emotional consequences of Dastan's journey with the Dagger of Time. A shared past that Tamina no longer remembers.

    Summary

    When Tristan posed the idea of Isolde returning to Britain with him, what if she would have said yes? What of their lives together, if anything, would have been different, and what would have been the same?

    Summary

    “Anyone could see!” he hissed.

    “And just who will see?” she asked, one hand hanging down comfortably. “Who’s here besides you, you old frump?”

    Summary

    I held onto her arm as I led her down to kitchen, unwilling to let go in case she flung herself at my back and made another attempt on my life. What a fine joke that would be: Sarkan, the Dragon, greatest wizard of Polnya, killed on his stairs by a witless peasant. Maybe the Wood would laugh itself into oblivion.

    This is a rewrite of 'Uprooted' by Naomi Novik, written from the Dragon's point of view.
    It follows the chapters of the book very closely, just retelling the story from his POV. If you enjoy a cranky wizard, or want to hear Sarkan's cutting internal remarks about the state of Agnieszka, then this fic is for you.

    This frankly insane project has come out of the Covid-19 pandemic, where we all need something fun to keep us going during these times. Made with all my love for Naomi Novik and her wonderful book.
