    Summary

    His face is on the news again. Unsmiling, a little wild-eyed in the flashbulb burst. Awkward bowl cut, split lip. A red bar beneath his chin reads: "106 MINORS SEIZED FROM STATEN ISLAND RELIGIOUS COMPOUND...."
     
    Credence is not technically a minor. Technically, according to the documents folded in a manila envelope on Tina's kitchen counter, he was supposed to have turned twenty-four in November. A minor technicality.

    It’s January, 1996. DOMA is in the works. The newscasters on WNET are inappropriately attractive. Clinton is trying to hold office. People can make phone calls anywhere, cordlessly, from brick sized phones. Credence Barebone has been freed from an abusive religious cult, and nothing makes sense anymore.

    Summary

    He wakes, and he doesn't know who he is. But that is just the beginning, as Todd's own plans and those of Michael get torn at cross purposes, and the inimitable John Sheppard could be the deciding element in which faction wins the war to control the galaxy, depending on the choice he makes.

    Summary

    "Some men are born warriors. Some are born with other destinies," I whispered in answer.

    "Like to warm the warriors' beds?"

    When the translator repeated the words the warlord leered down at me, I couldn't help the blush I knew rose to my cheeks.

    "If all you know is sex and battle, what a poor life you have lived," I hissed. I immediately cursed my fool tongue.

    I could tell the translator didn't want to repeat my rebellious words, but with a flick of the warlord's fingers to urge him on, he had no choice.

    The warlord's bellowing laugh and taunting reply echoed around the throne room, although the translator couldn't even repeat them before the warlord began again, this time in broken El'kahrian- my own language.

    "I choose Amer Groban, son of Jon Groban the third, as my War Prize," the warlord growled out loud enough for the entire courtyard to hear.

    He met my eyes, his own shining with laughter. His whispered words, meant only for me, were translated by a near-silent, confused translator. "You are no coward, little mate. Your fire is as deep as your heart. I will enjoy making that fire mine."

    Summary

    Elrohir's odyssey across Middle-earth finally brings him home to Rivendell. Sadly all is not well: the Elf-child that was abducted into Umbar is now a Man grown. Forty years of war and darkness left Elrohir deeply scarred, and the Hidden Valley harbors ancient conflicts of its own. Will the love of his family be enough when Elrohir finds himself a stranger in a strange land?

    Chapter 4 is up:
    “Who attacked us?” Elrohir asked in Haradi, clearly unwilling to proclaim his ignorance of what was obvious to everyone else.
    Glorfindel replied in the southern tongue. “Creatures the Haradrim have no name for. We call them Orcs."

    This story is part of the Under Strange Stars series, but it can perfectly well be read on its own. The story is completely written and will be posted a chapter a week.

    Many thanks to my excellent beta Dawn Felagund. Any remaining mistakes are mine.

    Summary

    "Bones, why did you, really, bring me with you?" Jim asked. "I'm in the way, even here in Georgia." Bones was quiet as the porch swing rocked back and forth, the gentle rain also lulling Jim to sleep. As his eyes closed, he heard Bones' soft voice. "You're not in my way, or anyone else's, Jim. You're here so I can remind you, once and for all, that I just can't leave you behind."

    Summary

    This was a long game, and Eto wanted to watch him accept her courtship - even if he didn't know what it was at first. She wanted to watch him struggle. She wanted to pursue him. She wanted him to come to her with that same promise of violence lighting up his eyes, bright as the moon behind a thin veil of storm clouds.

     

    How hard would it be to walk the line between tripping him into attraction and enticing him to kill her?

     

    What would it take to seduce Kaneki Ken?

     

    The One Eyed King will be a child with too much power.

    Summary

    The five sacred lions are the ancestral defense of Altea, and commanded by whomever possesses Altea's royal regalia. When the Queen is assassinated and the sacred throne is damaged, the crown princess discovers it'll take two years for the coronation stone to be recarved and resanctified. With Altea's enemies gathering their armies, Allura doesn't have the time. There's one other option: if she can call up the lions, that will prove she's Altea's rightful leader. According to tradition, the lions will choose their paladins from the land's greatest warriors -- but to Allura's dismay, the mystical creatures instead choose a slave, a spy, a traitor, an outcast, and a thief.

    If these are Altea's sacred defenders, Altea may be in trouble.
