    Summary

    Rise and shine, loser, it's time for mimosas and Craig-watching.

    (WIP, but no cliffhangers here; each chapter is a self-contained story, and collectively they chronicle the saga of Robert's short step in falling for the New Guy, and then the much longer step of figuring out what to do about it.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The author is able to put multiple POVs of a single incident in different chapters without making it boring or just rehashing the same event just with a slight variation.
    They do very well on addressing Robert's mental state and that not everything can be fixed just because love. Also for goodness sake I just want to drag Mary away and make her safe and happy for once without it being the result of some vindication or snark. Just let the poor woman live.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    First off, I would like to warn you to not read this if you are in any way in a "bad frame of mind." What I mean is if you are having any flare ups of depressive symptoms, it might be best to stay away and read later. There is a lot of self-hatred, guilt, etc to watch out for. Chapter 12 is especially a doozy. I have cried multiple time through out the fic. There was just something so real to Loki in this fic that I felt like I related to him a bit too personally. If focuses HEAVILY on the family dynamic.

    Mainly a Gen fic but does contain Thor/Jane and a outtake of Loki/Sif (not in the actual story but know it's a possibility in another universe kind of located on the author's tumblr)

    Summary

    A party was never quite a proper party in Tevinter until there was at least one assassination attempt, and the novelty in the attempt at Magister Caius’ party lay not quite in its actual occurrence but in the ambition of its assassin.

    At the height of Caius’ decidedly juvenile lyrium-laced drinking game, during the start of dinner, Magister Fabiana made a sudden gesture close to the Divine, all the while leaning closer, as if to say something private. Divine Leonthius' hand snapped up, viper-quick, grabbing Fabiana’s hand high on the wrist. She rose from her seat, fright and outrage both in her eyes, fire stealing hot up from her trapped wrist before it was abruptly… gone.

    Shock froze Fabiana’s snarl in her throat, even as, with a gentle, almost intimate economy, Leonthius pulled Fabiana towards him and shoved a dagger up through her ribcage.

    This is obviously well thought out and researched. It focuses mainly on Dorian's POV and even includes a time travel portion to it that plays tribute to his recruitment arc in the game. Very well done, and I wish I had more because I so do love how they portray Tevinter politics in this.

    Summary

    After Graves' fourth escape attempt Grindelwald decides that turning the man into a magical creature - a process thought to be impossible to reverse - will take care of the problem quite nicely. Too bad he didn't anticipate Newt Scamander.

    Grindelwald turns Graves into a wampus in a dungeon. This follows that time and the after effects of dealing with that as he's stuck and no one knows it's actually him after he has been rescued.

    Summary

    “This is all good and well,” Percival tells the Goldsteins, “but what about the egg that will inevitably become an occamy that lives in my coat pocket?”

    Tina furrows her brow and puts on a stern scowl; she stares.

    “Mr. Graves doesn’t answer personal questions,” Queenie says seriously.

    - - -

    Six months later, Porpentina Goldstein frees Percival Graves from his prison. He recovers, he returns to work, and he learns how to cope and how to move on and how to let people back in after crippling betrayal. Then he meets Newt Scamander and he has to learn how to deal with an eccentric Brit who somehow worms his way into Percival's heart, one bright smile at a time.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    After the Grindlewald fiasco, Graves is left without his hearing. This story follows his recovery and how he deals with being deaf. There are trying times, but we do get a happy ending for him as he finally finds ways to adapt. This also has a freaking cute occamy service animal in it.
