    Summary

    Jaina Proudmoore is looking for an escape. Unable to find peace after an accident that left her scarred and traumatized, she finds herself taking a post as lighthouse keeper in a quiet corner of Quel'thalas. But hiding is hard when everyone as heard your name, the lighthouse turns out to be a crumbling mess with rumors of a curse, and it's hard to say who's more damaged - the lighthouse, Jaina, or her new employer.

    AKA, the Lighthouse Keeper AU nobody asked for.

    Summary

    Imagine, Sylvanas thinks, how merciful my death would've been had a Lich Queen been chosen over a King. Jaina Proudmoore has no need of a Banshee. I would have been slain cleanly, as would all of Azeroth. Efficiently. 

    "A marriage of state," says Jaina. "A mutual surrender for a mutual victory."

    Summary

    The war has not gone well for anyone. The Alliance has three months left before collapse. The Horde is not much better off. With neither victory or death as options, Sylvanas proposes an alternative. A treaty, to ease tensions and open borders, with a political hostage to ensure that both sides stay in line. A marriage with many political implications and Sylvanas would only accept one person. Jaina Proudmoore.

    And Jaina Proudmoore made for the perfect hostage. If the Alliance moves wrong, Jaina dies. The Horde attacks, and Jaina reduces Orgrimmar to a wisp of a memory in the minds of children.

    Of course, no one expected Sylvanas and Jaina to be anything more than uneasy partners with each other, least of all Sylvanas and Jaina...
