    Summary

    Niles pauses as he adds milk to Connor’s mug, leaving his own untouched. “I’d like you to go to the United States and meet with the president. It’s no secret that you’re more popular with the public - the modern rebel prince. You’ll make a better impression than the ice king.”

    “Fine.” Connor runs one finger absently over the rim of his teacup. “I’ll do it.”

    “Take some charm to the White House,” Niles says, smiling in a way that doesn’t reach his eyes. They’re in cold in the sunlight. “Show President Anderson that we aren’t as bad as he thinks us to be.”

    Summary

    Finally, the armies of the Hittites have been subdued, but at a great cost to both sides.
    Egypt could not take back the fortress city of Kadesh, key to defending their golden land and their vassal states, but in the eyes of the Pharaoh, they won something much greater; peace.
    After a century of war, it was a much-welcomed outcome for both Egypt and Hattusa.

    The great Hittite general, Hattusili, offers his daughter, the young princess Malawashina, as a bride for Pharaoh to seal their treaty once and for all.
    But, is the treaty the only reason he chooses to send his most precious daughter away from their homeland, away from his heart?

    How will life fare for her in the distant land of Egypt, where she will ultimately be sent into the clutches of Pharaoh's harem?
    Claws will be hidden beneath the facade of pleasantries and charm. Will the rules set in place to assure harmony within the palace be enough to protect her from the ruthlessness of her fellow wives as they vie for Pharaoh's favour and affections?

    Within Pharaoh's harem, only one flower can bloom...

    For a beat, Eddie stares at him across the conference table. Then he says, “Yeah, maybe this is a Richie-stays-quiet meeting. Any other–?”

    “Are you serious?” Richie blurts. “I’m sorry I didn’t go to fucking Columbia for political science, but Bill hired me and I work for this campaign–”

    “Oh, right, yeah, sorry– Bill, any more college roommates you think we should loop into this conversation?”

    Summary

    Autumn 1935, Manston Airfield.

    Eleven Squadron have been chosen to share their knowledge and wisdom with the Jagdwaffe of Germany's Luftwaffe. A move to strengthen the somewhat shaky relations between the two countries.
    Eleven Squadron, however, prefers hijinks and shenanigans over being the face of the Royal Air Force, and so their first meeting with the Jagdwaffe does not go how Group Captain Haines wishes.
    A move that leaves their visiting German's questioning how the next six months are going to unfold, or even if they can trust the raggedy crew to fly a plane let alone take anything seriously.
    With their time together starting shakily, a shockwave hits the little village of Manston when a murder is committed and a finger is pointed at one of the German pilots, the scars of the Great War not yet forgotten or healed.
    Trying to clear their comrades' name soon becomes more complex when he too shows up dead in a suspected revenge attack, and it no longer becomes a crime, but a political mess that could threaten war.

    Summary

    After the loss of its two most prominent leaders, the Stormcloaks fall under the command of Bjarni Ulfricsson, the new Jarl of Windhelm. With his father's huscarl, his hearthman Ralof and his brother Egil at his side, he takes the fight to the Imperials under a sky darkened by dragon shadows and a looming prophecy, eager to save Skyrim and a sister he's only just learned about - one who is in dire peril.

    Lia knows very well how dire the peril is. That's why she returned to Helgen, stole the Legion's tax chest, and paid the face-sculptor in Riften to change her features. But a changed face can't change a fate and the blood of the Aurelii will come out. Harried by a prophecy and the legacy of her parents, the Storm-Shadow finds herself juggling the needs of the Thieves Guild (and its very handsome auburn-haired Day Master) and the salvation of Skyrim. Alduin might be black as night, but the shadows are Nocturnal's domain and the newest Thief will steal the souls of his minions for herself...

    Summary

    What happens when a traditional, moderate conservative joins an eccentric so-far-left-we've-looped-back-around liberal on a unity ticket for President/VP of the United States? The Rogers-Stark 2020 campaign is born.
    Everyone thinks the governor won't last long, that he'll bow out long before the general election; and who better to prove the entire country wrong but New York's best crisis management firm, Barnes & Associates?
    James Barnes is the sort of man who could sell a glass of water to a drowning man—and that's just the sort of person they'll need to steal this election.

    Of course, as with most of my fics, hijinx and fuckery ensue. :)
