    Summary

    At first Harry wonders if they’ve managed to destroy his vaults and are trying to tell him in the most oblique way possible. But when he turns the page he realises they’ve found a vault. A vault in the name of Lily and James Potter.

    The parchment trembles a little in Harry’s hand. He takes another gulp of wine.

    Harry Potter left Britain after the war and didn’t look back. Ten years later, when Gringotts discovers a vault containing his parents’ belongings—including their badly spell-damaged wedding rings—he’s forced to face up to friends and family who’ve grown in ways he could never imagine, a wizarding London rebuilt beyond his expectations, and the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the entirely unforeseen problem of Draco Malfoy.

    Featuring pureblood wizarding traditions, ancestral magic, open mic nights, marriage equality, a diner in Brooklyn, and the return of Fleamont Potter.

    Summary

    Silence falls over the battleground. A mage lies dead on the ground, and Jester’s already propping him up onto a rock and prodding his cheek with her holy symbol. She’d be here with Molly too, if Caleb hadn’t shouted at her to stay back verdammt Jester stay back and shot off a firebolt to keep a snarling tiefling from trying to kill them.

    Ikithon, he thinks, sick to his stomach at the thought. This is Ikithon’s work, it has his signature written all over it. He doesn’t dare ask Jester to undo it. He doesn’t even know where she can start, with undoing whatever’s been done to Molly.

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    The stories say that there exists a city hidden in the heart of the mountains: Whitestone, once known as The Jewel in the North, the city of Pelor. They say that it is home to riches innumerable--both material and arcane--as well as a power so immense, so secret, that none dare speak of it.

    The stories also say that it is a cursed land, wreathed in perpetual fog and darkness. They say nothing grows there and strange and terrible creatures roam its ruins.

    Many have gone to seek their fortune there. Most have failed to find it. A few have never returned.

    Percival de Rolo--librarian/scholar by day, tinkerer by night--knows magic isn’t real and stories are just stories, but his research has convinced him that the city itself does exist. Then one night his sister brings him a puzzle box containing a map and before he knows it, he’s off to find the lost city led by two half-elves of dubious character and accompanied by his sister, a gnome medic, a goliath mercenary, and an eccentric gnome looking for a story to tell. What starts off as an academic pursuit goes off the rails in short order and Percy finds that there may be some truth after all to the stories about the City of the Undead...

    Summary

    Upon arriving back in Whitestone, Fredrick calls his third child to his side and says gravely, "My son, while I was gone I made arrangements for you to be married."

    Percival, who was raised in nobility and has always quietly feared this exact thing his entire life, sets his jaw and nods obediently. "Yes, Father," he says, and then holes himself up in his workshop to drink.

    Upon arriving back in Syngorn, Sildor calls the girl child to his side and says gravely, "My daughter, while I was gone I made arrangements for you to be married."

    Vex'ahlia throws a chair through a window.

    Or, the one where the Briarwoods never took over Whitestone, Thordak never destroyed Byroden, and two asshole nobles make a snap decision over whiskey. Percival struggles with his chronic emotional constipation and works on his tan, Vex'ahlia commits arson and sighs a lot, the de Rolo siblings win the award for Tal'Dorei's Least Helpful Peanut Gallery, and, eventually, there's a wedding. If they can all survive each other long enough to get to it.

    Summary

    Though fully aware that picking up a hitchhiker came with its risks, Vex was more than willing to accept the gamble for the possibility of some extra gas money. Little did she know, it was a decision that would change their lives in ways she never thought possible.
    --
    An odd mismatch of college students, professionals, and ex-convicts travel from city to city in an old broken down van affectionately named “Vox Machina”. Although they may be poor and perhaps a tad eccentric, having a good time is their specialty, even if their fun often leads to a little more trouble than they bargained for...

    Summary

    She likes sex, and she likes Percy, and she's quite certain that she'd really like the two of them together. The physical aspect of it, the whole 'insert tab a into slot b,' doesn't bother her, never really has. She lost her virginity relatively young and honestly didn't care enough about it to think on the matter much more, and anyway that's always a saying she's been confused about, losing one's virginity. She didn't lose it because that implies that it's something she can find again, something that she's assigned value to. She fucked someone once and it was the first time she ever did it, and it was clumsy and unsatisfactory and she's since gotten better at it and that's that.

    Or, the immediate sequel to kept us awake with wolf's teeth, wherein Vex has a curiosity regarding sex and emotions, Percy is concerned with propriety, the Raven Queen watches, unamused, at the periphery, and there is a happy ending.

    Aka, the Smut Fic.
