  2. Summary

    This series is a predominantly original series of dark fantasy / explicit fairytale erotica. Over time, I shall be removing references to any other commercial fandoms (these only occur in Game Theory and in minimal amounts). Until then, it is a strange hybrid of mostly original work with my own original characters. Read the warnings and enjoy!

    CORE to the story are:

    1. Deeper into the Woods (40k total, a good introduction to the characters since the larger works are so long/daunting!)
    2. Game Theory
    3. The Nightingale and Terho the Mouse Lad
    4. The Court of Five Thrones
    5. The Ice Plague

    EXTRAS (see: fae tales verse - canon extras for more)

  3. Summary

    Continuing the saga in 10 years after The Court of Five Thrones, Unseelie dryad Mosk Manytrees and Seelie fire fae Eran Iliakambar find themselves devastated in different ways by a plague of destructive, sentient ice that sunders fae communities.

    Eran is convinced that Mosk is the cause of such destruction, binding Mosk to him and forcing him to the Courts to account for his actions. But the world has become more threatened than ever, and Eran and Mosk must make a pilgrimage – along with Gwyn and Augus – to discover what or who may be behind increasing instabilities that threaten everything the fae have come to take for granted.

  4. Summary

    A range of AUs and oneshots connected to the main Fae Tales Verse series. The individual AUs themselves aren't connected to each other, and are mostly grouped together in a series to make them easy to find. :)

    Summary

    “His Majesty the Emperor invites His Highness for tea,” the maidservant tells him from the other side of the doors, just a shadow against the paper. She is on her knees, with her forehead hovering over the floor.

    The towel slips from his suddenly weak fingers, splashes onto the water basin.

    He breaths in and hardens his voice against the trembling starting in his body.

    “I’ll be there.”

    Summary

    "Augus was beginning to lose sight of what he wanted, why he had come here. Fuck the King, kill the King. Either he veered between extremes of hatred and devotion, or he felt nothing at all. Since that year in the dark he felt cut off from the part of him that knew itself and felt at peace with its desires, that still pool where things were calm and clear. When he slept, which was rare, he dreamt of birds. Of wandering in the dark, sightless, surrounded by the beating of wings. Of sinking his teeth in, feeling the crunch of those hollow bones. A mouthful of feathers. The taste of blood—whose blood?—like the iron tang of a bright winter day. The drives he could never quite separate: to love, to consume. Feathers lodged beneath his claws, the quivering of wings."

    In Augus' fourth year as the Raven Prince's consort, an explosive secret threatens the fragile accord between them.

    Summary

    Efnisien has never been entirely sure how he feels about the fact that his entire relationship with the only family he has left has been reduced to birthday and Christmas calls, and the rarest of sporadic texts or social media interaction.

    Some days it felt like not enough, and he would be plagued with remorse at how the two of them would probably never feel like normal family, and his very large role in that. Some days, more frequently than he’d like, he felt like it was still too much, that he didn’t deserve even these three routine calls a year and Gwyn acceptance of them.

    And some rare days, it felt right. It felt like a healthy balance for them both that he was grateful for. Those were good days.

     

    Efnisiem calls Gwyn on his 30th birthday.
