    Summary

    After the attack on Kattegat, Leif, Harald, Freydis, and a few other friends struggle to survive, and to win back Norway before Olaf can destroy it. Featuring such story elements as “this author takes forever to get to the damn point”, blatant historical inaccuracies, and blatant divergences from canon for a variety of reasons, mostly just because the author forgot stuff.

    This work is rated MATURE. It is not appropriate for readers under 18 due to depictions of sexual situations and violence. If you are over 18 and feel this rating is not appropriate, feel free to reach out and discuss.

    Summary

    “What say you, criminal?” The woman said coldly, regarding Vi through thick lashes. “Care to join our ranks?”

    “Do I have a choice?” Vi replied, fighting hard against her instincts to panic in order to keep her voice void of emotion.

    “But of course, you have a choice.” The woman said, voice like honey. “I am nothing if not an honourable woman. A gentleman, some might even say.”

    ---
    Caitlyn’s crew is raiding the local outpost at the exact same time that Vi is due to be hanged for repeated petty larceny. Intrigued by the pink-haired convict, Caitlyn offers the choice to Vi- die or join her crew. Not really much of a choice. Gayness ensues.
    ---
    This is (very) loosely inspired by Our Flag Means Death so if you liked that, you would probably enjoy this pirate AU. I just love me some gay pirates.

    Summary

    The year is 983. Godric is known throughout Britain as a fearsome warrior and the son of a Viking king. But despite his magical abilities, he's never been able to save the ones he loves from the horror and subjugation imposed upon witches and wizards by the nonmagical. And he has spent the last 4 years hiding from the ghosts of his past. But when his childhood friend, Rowena, the Lady Hraefnclae, approaches him with a proposal to build a school, he is forced to confront his demons, both internal and external, in order to help her. It just so happens that one of his demons is a man with black eyes and a heavy locket...

    This story is heavily influenced by The Last Kingdom, The Evening & The Morning, and the Witcher. It contains violence typical for stories about the 10th century, including references to rape. It is also a story about friendship, love, acceptance and forgiveness.

    Summary

    A doctor gets conscripted for medical duty at the ragged edges of a failing colonial war. Near the front lines he meets an imprisoned ex-guerilla fighting for survival in his army's labour camp. As the seasons turn their fates reverse and they forge an uneasy truce. But will the trauma of their past keep them from finding lasting peace?

    Of course it won't. This is a love story. ;)

    Warnings: There is some violence and some attempted rape/non-con. But neither are sustained, graphic, or central to the piece.

    This fic is getting slowly edited, so there may be some internal inconsistencies. Check my profile for other more complete and polished original fics.

    Summary

    Athens allies begrudgingly with Sparta in a time of great need. They could not be more different: Athenian philosophy to Sparta's bleak realism. Athenian comfort to Spartan starkness. The sun and the moon. As the poets say, though: opposites attract.

    Summary

    The year is 1206 and Sesshoumaru is a teenager in his rebellious phase. Soon, unforeseen circumstances force him to embark on a long journey, during which he becomes the coldhearted demon we know today.

    This is the English version of 'Boldog Napok' which was written many, many, MANY years ago in Hungarian. It had a small following back then but the site it was uploaded to is now defunct. This version is rewritten with an adult brain and in a different language.
    The story has romantic elements but there's no shipping. There will be some violence, but nothing worse than what's in the original manga/anime. Most mysteries and riddles in the story are possible to solve. The ones that are unsolvable are meant to be explained later in the story.

    Summary

    A poem celebrating the 33rd Anniversary of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" on the holiday of Lag B' Omer, which is tied to the number 33.

    This is extremely clunky because I had to make 33 stanzas, in groups of 3 (tercets/triplets), all with 33 syllables. :/

    It ain't pretty.
