    Summary

    "The beginning and end are set. What’s in between is yours. Nothing is in vain, all is remembered."

    When King Ragnar returns from his ten year self exile, Earl Þorgier sets sail to Kattegat to forge an alliance that will bring riches and fame. The Earl's advisers hope to marry off his beautiful daughter to a son of Ragnar, but fate has other plans. In tow is Þorgier's ward, Saga. Saga is an orphan: unloved, unnoticed, and plagued by darkness... and that darkness is enticing. Will two lonesome hearts be bound by devotion or destruction?

    Note: This fic is inspired by Ivar's on-screen temperament and the realistic conclusions I chose to draw from it. It chronicles what is sometimes a physically, emotionally and sexually abusive relationship between two emotionally immature individuals. Reader Discretion is advised.

    Summary

    "While I share your contempt for this situation in which we find ourselves, do not mistake it as apathy," he hissed through gritted teeth, dark eyes burning. "I hardly expect your disposition to sweeten, but I will be damned if I allow my future Empress to behave in a manner that reflects poorly on me and on the First Order!"

    "If you allow?" She wrenched her arm out of his viselike grasp, batting his hand away for good measure. "I don't belong to you. I don't belong to anyone."

    "That might have been the case back when you were a scavenger on that pitiful scrap heap of a planet, but now?" His sardonic gaze flickered over her silk robes and the jewels woven through her elaborate braids. "Now you are the Chume'da, and the Chume'da belongs to her people. Their fate is entirely in your hands. Should you cross the line, it is they who will suffer for it. Am I making myself clear?"

    "I hate you," she said bitterly.

    He sneered at her. "See? Already you are acclimatizing so well to married life."
