    Summary

    Full Summary:
    Back in a time where warp technology was still relatively new to them, a Vulcan starship crash lands on earth in the beautiful but tumultuous Mara plains of West Kenya. After decades of waiting it becomes clear that their distress signal has failed and they are now stranded on this strange new world. The large crew face a number of problems, particularly what to do about bondmates during their biological call to mate. With not enough mates to go around, Vulcan males in the heat of their pon farr look to the human population for a means to survive the onslaught of their blood fever. After years of stealing women from their tribal nations that they strive to stay hidden from elders and shamans across the nation band together and ask for a parlay with the threat of war if it is not met. After the meeting a fragile agreement is struck between their people: a virgin bride sacrifice to the elusive beings the Bantu and Maa people only know as the Mgeni or the strangers in exchange for goods and protection from neighboring nations. Nyota has been marked for the next cull and the male and community that awaits her is like none she's ever seen.

    Another of my very favorite Spock/Uhura stories, AU to the extreme but still somehow in character!

    Summary

    After Sansa, Margie and Arya go home from their night out in Seattle, Meera is left to her own devices before returning to Spokane in a few days. Benjen stops by to drop off the stilettos she kicked off and forgot in his car the previous evening.

    I WONDER WHAT HAPPENS.

    Kiss The Girl universe, as they all are these days lol.
    (Meera is 27, Benjen 45)

    ALSO Don't kill me for adding the Sandor/Sansa tag. I only did because several SanSan shippers out there expressed an interest in Benjen and Meera and there is just no way anyone would find this. Bex and Littleimagination said I could do it!

    Summary

    Alternate Universe, Prohibition era.
    New York City, 1923. After Joffrey Baratheon breaks their engagement, Sansa Stark ends up in Petyr Baelish's brothel, where she works as a dancer. She soon realizes her customers die one after the other...

    "You don't want me to dance, you say you're not here to spy on me, so why did you come?" she asked the Hound again.
    Sansa's high-pitched voice revealed her exasperation; he looked straight in her eyes and, forgetting about the chocolates, he leaned forward so that his head was at arm's length of her knees.
    "I'm your way out, girl."
    He had uttered these words in such a way it sounded like a threat.

    Summary

    What if Ned wasn't beheaded in King's Landing and Catelyn didn't die at the Red Wedding? Just over two years ago I asked myself those questions, and with the encouragement of some wonderful people I started this story.

    This story takes place entirely in the canon universe, diverging from GRRM's epic at two points--Ned's execution and Catelyn's murder at the Twins--and examines all the ways that the survival of these two people might have changed events both large and small in the world of Westeros. The ripples have far reaching consequences for many throughout the Seven Kingdoms, but at its heart, this is a story of two people, their marriage, their family, and the North.

    Summary

    As head of the Impossible Missions Force, Stannis Baratheon thought that his current assignment was relatively straightforward. Track down an arms dealer behind the Iron Curtain and put a stop to his threat to sell crude tritium ─ a substance that could be used to make a radioactive dirty bomb ─ to a criminal organization in West Berlin. Stannis would pose as the head of the German crime syndicate. The contact inside Belarus was Petyr Baelish, a double agent who had been recruited a decade ago. What Stannis hadn’t counted on was that Baelish would enlist his beautiful niece, Alayne, to pose as Stannis’ mistress. When she secretly asks for his help, Stannis doesn’t know whether or not to trust Alayne, even as he begins to develop feelings for her which might jeopardize the mission and the lives of his team.

    How could I NOT adore one of my OTPs in a spy AU set against the Cold War? This is perfect.
