    Summary

    He never knew the right thing to do.

    In his forest, messages came on the breeze. The trees told him of approaching spiders. Small creatures told him where to find berries and even the earth beneath his feet told him, ‘this is where you belong’. He always knew what to do in the forest, but in this Mannish place he was at a loss.

    Summary

    It's roughly one hundred years after the Battle of Kaer Morhen - give or take, Geralt's lost count - Nilfgaard won the war, bringing the Continent under its iron rule. The creatures and beasts Geralt once hunted are now mere playthings for the rich and powerful. And the most interesting creature of all? Witchers.

    Summary

    to know how it ends
    and still, begin to sing it again
    as if it might turn out this time

     

     

     

    Siblings Dáire and Ellara Lavellan have been in the service of the Temple of Mythal for years, after an escape attempt that ended in them being separated in the same court. Fearing the wrath fo the gods if they try to escape again, they use court intrigue and rumours to ensure their safety.

    And far from the waking world, a spirit of Wisdom is called forth by a winged goddess into a mortal body.

    (this is my first attempt at a longfic! let's see how it goes!)

    Summary

    Frustrated with the War of the Five Kings, Domeric Bolton deserts the Northern army and rescues Sansa Stark from King’s Landing.

    Part war story, part chivalric romance, part tragic irony, major Cerebus Syndrome. A look at the weight of curses and at Roose Bolton as a husband and a father. A darkfic with a light at the end of the tunnel, partly inspired by Dante Alighieri’s La Vita Nuova.

    This mostly follows book canon until midway through ASOS, but I have used the ages from the show. Fun fact, if you play the Game of Thrones CK2 mod and start at Robert’s Rebellion, take a look at Roose’s court and you’ll find Domeric, a poet from the tender age of four.

    Shooting for August 14th for the next update.

    Summary

    The Crown Prince's wife is determined that her brother will not be any worse off than he ever was as result of his promise to her. To that end, she plans to use Lord Whent's event to find him, and herself, a shield against the plotting of some of the realm's lords. Her attention falls upon the guileless Northerner maiden whose manner impresses her and whose position delights her, for the girl is but a natural daughter and asking her from her father is not like to create dissent.

    Given the opportunity to repay her father for years of care, Lyanna sees her plans for the future brought to a halt. Should she accept the Princess' proposal there is a promise of favour for her brothers and father. Knowing such a decision cannot be taken back, she finds herself weighing the value of those promises against her wish for a simple, uncomplicated life. If she consents, the rest of her existence shall revolve around the schemes of power-hungry lords and there is no guarantee of kindness for her.

    AU! Lyanna thought she might dip her toes in the intrigues of her betters, but in King Aerys' court there is no such thing as half-measures. Not for those who mean to survive.

    Summary

    UNDER QARTH'S SHELTERING SKY is not so much a multi-chapter story as a collection inside a collection. It began as a one-off inside JORAH AND DAENERYS' GARDEN OF EROTIC DELIGHTS and, coaxed by some of you, and my own imagination, I saw a way to devise other stand-alone tales set in Qarth.

    Each new chapter can be read independently yet they do form a mosaic of sorts, with new chapters either throwing us forward in Jorah and Daenerys' AU timeline, or back. There is narrative unfolding but, as I am mainly interested in the dynamics of desire, the chapters capture moments in time in which Jorah and Dany come together in the throes of passion. The tone can be light or angsty, but Love is at the center of it all, celebrated in, what I aim to be, poetic explicitness. In a word, Erotica.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Summary

    Rhaegar Targaryen seeks a companion who will help, not hinder him. The very last thing he needs is an innocent to hang onto his sleeve and require his protection from the intrigues of court when he himself is planning to overthrow a king. It is his hope that a public show of affection will force his father's hand enough to cement a union between himself and the Dornish Princess.

    Given instead Lyanna of Winterfell, daughter of an until-recently reclusive house, the Prince watches all his plans go up in smoke as circumstances force him to declare for her and not for the partner he did want. Certain that his efforts will have to be doubled, the Crown Prince does not even conceive of consulting the maiden herself. It does not occur to him that there is more to Lady Lyanna than meets the eye.

    AU! Lyanna Stark finds herself playing with burning candles among kegs of wildfire.

    Summary

    Nico, a young squire in Olympus, has been best friends with Will since he was eight years old, but over time, his feelings for Will have grown beyond friendly admiration. He hopes that his performance at the squire’s tourney will finally impress his friend—perhaps even enough for Will to want to court him.

    ...or maybe Will has felt the same way all along.

    Summary

    The Inquisition’s success at Halamshiral rests on an unlikely ally. Lady Constance Elise Comtois, a famous Orlesian bard, offers her knowledge, voice, and deadly skills to the Inquisition. Cullen Rutherford instantly dislikes this masked human chameleon Inquisitor Adaar invites to Skyhold. It is not just her origins and profession he abhors. Her alluring beauty and siren-like qualities draw him closer into her lyrium blue eyes like a new unbreakable addiction.

    It is not like the War Council has time for such a masked ridiculous elitist. They already has their hands full with a Hawke-like vigilante called the ‘Silver Fox.’ The supposed hero of the destitute keeps meddling in many Orlesian and Inquisition affairs.

    Espionage, murder, sex, and hidden treasure awaits the Inner Circle. It is a race to save Orlais and the world from Corypheus’ red lyrium armies. To survive the Grand Game, they must know how to dance through its cutthroat twists and turns to achieve victory. If failures, all living beings no matter their station share the same fate: death.
