    Summary

    Considering Arthur's future wife will be chosen less for compatibility than for her political value, Merlin may be the only marriage he'll have that won't end in bloodshed or a great deal of fortifying wine.

    Summary

    She almost smiles, and true alarm starts to build in his chest. “I’m afraid I’m not here for something so small. Professor Roberts has resigned.”

    “Good,” Draco says honestly, “Would you like a list of suitable alternatives? I know a number of competent potions masters abroad, but then of course you’d have to hire another teacher to act as the Slytherin head. I’m afraid you’ve dried up all the half decent Slytherin Potions masters.”

    “Not all of them,” she says quietly.

    He blinks. She can’t be serious. “You can’t be serious.”

    “Gravely,” she says, “Mr. Malfoy, I am not above begging.”

    What the bloody fuck. “I don’t even like potions!”

    Summary

    A dead metal human-bird hybrid washes up on the shores of Emelan. Niko identifies it as something from a far-off country, one with more experimental universities than Lightsbridge, and with another way of magic. And so the four go to Tortall.
    In Tortall itself, Stormwings are coming down with disease, with reduced flocks, actually asking for the Wildmage's help. Something has gone very, very wrong.

    Summary

    Ozorne let his fingers drift a little further, past the innocent glass vials towards the sickly yellow poison, swilled with black. He stopped short of picking up the bottle, and his reflection taunted him. The black swirl was gone, but its hue had left a bitter taste in the Emperor’s mouth. He wanted to make it even. The traitor had to suffer. He would feel the agony of betrayal when the girl seemed to run away. How much more would he feel if she died? And as for the wildmage... Ozorne felt very little towards the girl at all. A little regret, perhaps, for she would have made a superior slave for his birds in time. But no malice, and no affection. He saw her as a stepping stone rather than a bridge, and as such he had no real wish for her to suffer. She simply had to die.

    Alternate Plot Line starting at the end of EM. Gifted to KeepCalmLoveSeverus. <3
