    Summary

    Legends and fairy tales, magic and myths, and—at the center of it all—a story of a young, future-Queen and her young, ageless-Guardian; a girl cursed with fear and a god frozen in time, and all of the reasons why seeing isn't always at the heart of believing.

    { A dash of angst, a touch of fluff, and a whole lifetime of pain and love and hope, all spiraled into a series of drabbles, ficlets, and one-shots; an on-going Jelsa fanfiction of—literally—epic proportions. }

    Summary

    “You,” Jack says warmly, breathlessly, and it’s then that Elsa notices that his feet are bare in the sand. “You are going to change your mind.”

    Summary

    For Elsa—lessons contain phrases like arranged marriages, contain discussions of the complexities of navigating a political world where alliances are built first and foremost on the precious ink that no one is ever willing to share; where the marks on one’s body can sing and screech like a weapon in the wrong hands, wrong minds, wrong kingdom, wrong bargainer; where destiny can be altered as leverage, can be made into sacrifices in the shape of cunning betrothal. A world, where, somehow, there are some words that were never intended to lie, and still the ravenous twist them, taint them, curl them for their own.

    The lessons on arranged marriages are perfectly perfunctory, of course. With things as they are now, her parents would never agree to such a thing. It’s for the best, that her words have not yet appeared; for the better, perhaps, that she should never receive them at all.

    Meanwhile, Jack's words hint that he may or may not possibly be under the divinely destined threat of future jail time.

    Summary

    (Because Elsa is someone who likes to be prepared, who likes to know what kind of problem she is dealing with before she confronts it; Elsa knows nothing about the particular causes of his sleepwalking, only the symptoms, and cares not for actually solving it, per se, because she is not qualified for that sort of thing, but after thirty-six articles from Google and four books from the campus library, she is actually starting to feel slightly better about walking a relatively unconscious young man in a hooded sweatshirt back to his apartment in the middle of the night. Perhaps.)

    Summary

    A series of correspondence from two people who probably would never have known each other at all, if not for Anna’s terrible organizational skills. Postcards, letters, e-mails, and texts, and—somewhere, in between all the lines—attraction. Maybe. Neither of them have exactly ever done this before.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love this fic sooo much. Every chapter made me both giggle uncontrollably and cry. (I'm an emotional person.) And the last few chapters got to me in a way I wasn't even expecting. I'm going to hold out hope for an epilogue. Because, yeah. You'll see. Not sure how a story could end more perfectly and yet make me desperate for more.
