  1. Summary

    Martin Septim, the bastard heir to the Throne of Tamriel, gave up his life to save the world. Arriving at the Imperial City to be crowned Emperor, he found that Mehrunes Dagon had already broken into Mundus. Martin smashed the Amulet of Kings and called upon his god, Akatosh, to honour the sacred covenant between the gods and the rulers of Tamriel. His human body disappeared as he became the Avatar of Akatosh... a great dragon of burning holy fire, throwing Dagon back to Oblivion and sealing the barriers behind him. Then the dragon turned into a statue, which everyone thought would stand in the Temple of the One forevermore...

    Almighty Akatosh, however, had other plans for the last Dragonborn. As the God of Time, He knew that one day His son Alduin would return to swallow the world. When that came to pass, two hundred years later, He took Martin's soul from Aetherius and transformed the statue back into his body. Then He dropped him near the border with Skyrim: a wild-eyed amnesiac knowing only his first name and that he was a priest of Akatosh. Martin was picked up by the Imperial Legion, met Alduin as he was burning down Helgen, and discovered that he was the Dragonborn of Nordic legend. This is his story.

  2. Summary

    An alternative universe in which Emperor Martin Septim makes it to the Imperial City in time to light the Dragonfires before Mehrunes Dagon enters Mundus. Follows on from my Martin Septim/Alix de Feu series and my NaNoWriMo novel Draconis, but diverges from them just before the ending of Oblivion.

    But Martin's story doesn't end with his survival. He needs to deal with an Elder Council who resent the way he ended the Oblivion Crisis, and his lack of training for the role of Emperor. He needs to juggle his love for his boyfriend, Alix de Feu, with his duty to marry an Empress and produce heirs. And he somehow has to cope with negative comments about his parentage and sexual preferences without simply turning into a dragon and burning everyone with fire. Thank the Nine that he has the eternal support of Alix and his Blades to keep him sane, protect him from further assassination attempts, and stop him becoming the second coming of Mad Emperor Pelagius!

  3. Summary

    Martin Septim was never supposed to be Emperor. Born as the illegitimate son of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, he was raised by farmers, without knowing his true identity. But then Uriel and his three legitimate sons were killed by the Mythic Dawn, a cult worshipping Mehrunes Dagon, an evil Daedric Prince. Martin was left as the only man with the Septim blood necessary to wear the Amulet of Kings, light the Dragonfires of Akatosh, and prevent Mehrunes Dagon from breaking through into the mortal world. It's rather a change from his previous life as a priest of Akatosh.

    Of course, no one can save the world alone, and Martin is helped by a powerful young mage, named Alix de Feu. Martin and Alix become lovers, which is just as well since Martin needs all the love and support he can get.

    Reading this, you realise how painfully lonely Klavier is, how starved for friends he was even before Daryan became a killer, and it's agonisingly beautiful.

    Summary

    "There are still a great many things Apollo does not understand, things he wants to understand, secrets he wants to pull free from the tight web that is Klavier Gavin and spin into a wholly new and all-encompassing truth. Something like that, he thinks, could probably be called love."

    (Or, the story in which Klavier cannot keep his hands to himself.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A very romantic and sexy story even though there is no sex. Everything that Apollo and Klavier do for each other shows that they love each other more than Klavier's pretty words which embarrass Apollo (but which Klavier can't help himself saying).

    Summary

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beautifully awkward and romantic, because getting together with someone is awkward, you don't just find out you're attracted to each other and bam! amazing sex, there's all the negotiation first. And I love how their first kisses are tender and sweet, and that Klavier is genuinely willing to sleep on the couch, and then to be in bed together and just sleep. The sex happens by mutual enthusiastic consent and agreement, rather than "just happening" because the characters are horny. Just really lovely all round.

    Summary

    “Herr Forehead!” Klavier is calling out the nickname before he even realizes what he’s doing. Never mind that this is a German airport and people are giving him strange looks.

    Apollo reacts immediately, and the instinctive response is gratifying on its own. His brow creases, he turns, and when he catches sight of Klavier, a disbelieving smile spreads across his lips, and Klavier realizes quite suddenly that, even after two years, he has not gotten over Apollo Justice, not even a little.
