  1. Summary

    This AU was inspired by the documentaries "Antarctica: A Year On Ice" and "Encounters at the End of the World" about life on McMurdo Station, which is the American research center in Antarctica on Ross Island. If you like the shenanigans of weirdos stranded with each other's idiosyncrasies in one of the most isolated places on earth, you've come across the right AU, friends.

    These fics can totally be read out of order. Enjoy!

    Summary

    Officially, Adam had two jobs: a mechanic and a barista. Unofficially, there were dark alleys and horny men and fast money. It’s enough to pay the bills but he doesn’t have any regulars. Until Ronan.

    Summary

    "Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

    "How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

    "One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

    It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

    Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Summary

    At first, the Iron Bull is just writing poetry to Dorian because it's a fun way to tease him—he gets all huffy when he's pretending he doesn't think the lowbrow stuff is funny, and besides, he started it by making it a Vint-versus-Qunari thing. It's only fair for Bull to needle him a bit.

    At first, Dorian is only writing back to Bull because he can't let him win. The pride of Tevinter's literary tradition (not to mention his own dignity) is at stake here, and he will not be beaten at metaphor by someone who thinks cattle-related puns are an appropriate way to seduce someone.

    And that's all it is. At first.

    Summary

    He would never say this to the media, but he kind of likes having Sean's voice in his ear. Hearing Sean quiets his nerves and helps Jared think more clearly, even when the headset gets chaotic and fuzzy and he can't tell exactly what Sean's saying. Something about how fiery Sean is all the time makes Jared feel like he can do anything.
