    Summary

    When tragedy strikes, Elain is forced beyond the shell-self she's used to cope. Faced with strange powers that no one understands, Elain decides she's done hiding and wants answers. Who knows what she will find? Lucien doesn't know what to think when Elain shows up to rescue him and pins a High Lord to the wall in her rage, especially when she doesn't remember doing it. If the opportunity arises, will he have the courage to let himself love again?

    Azriel's shadows have been growing more sentient, so far as to develop a crush on a certain Valkyrie-priestess. A trusted spy's death forces Azriel to dissolve his operations in Autumn. The failure sends him spiraling. Drowning beneath centuries of guilt, can he face the ribbon holding him to the light? Over a year after the Blood Rite, Gwyneth Berdara finally feels ready to leave her sanctuary and explore the world. When the Valkyries are called to fight, Gwyn is dealt several surprises—what will she make of them?

    Winds of change course through Autumn forests. Tamlin fights the strange forces taking advantage of a weakened Spring.
    When a long forgotten darkness appears, will Prythian conquer or crumble?———The journeys of Elucien and Gwynriel.

    Summary

    When Feyre finds out that Rhys and the Inner Circle have hidden the truth about her pregnancy complications from her, she leaves home and searches for answers and support elsewhere. Along the way, she finds out that she's not the only one whose family has been keeping secrets. The ramifications of her decision extend all the way to Autumn and Day, with far reaching consequences. The Night Court will also be forever changed as Feyre comes fully into her own power as High Lady, building alliances and an agenda of her own.

    A partial rewrite of ACOSF that kicks off with Feyre's pregnancy storyline, and diverges from the moment Nesta reveals the deception to her. I'm planning a rewrite of Nesta's full story in ACOSF, so she'll just make appearances here.

    Themes of pregnancy termination, pregnancy loss, child abuse, abuse of adult children, and death in childbirth will be discussed.

    Summary

    "All this time I didn't know
    You were breakin' down
    I'd fall to pieces on the floor
    If you weren't around
    Too young to know it gets better
    I'll be summer sun for you forever
    Forever winter if you go"

    Four years after she rejected, once and for all, the mating bond that linked her soul to Lucien Vanserra's, Elain Archeron was still having a very hard time adjusting to her life in Velaris. Despite being genuinelly happy that her sisters were doing so great with their own newfound families, Elain couldn't help but feel out of place amongst them, as she yearned for a family and friends of her own, other than the ones that, despite meaning well, only really saw her as Feyre's and Nesta's sister. Wasting her days away with gardening and baking and being plagued by terrible nightmares every other night, she wondered more and more each day if this was all that her new immortal life had to offer.

    However, her calm and frankly boring routine is about to take a huge turn, because for the first time since their bond was rejected, Lucien has accepted Feyre's invitation to join them for this year's solstice celebration - and, to make things even messier, he didn't come alone.

    Summary

    After returning home from Under the Mountain, everyone is struggling to cope with the trauma of Amarantha's reign. Rhys lingers in the shadows at the Spring Court, concerned about Feyre's mental health, and his presence spurs events to unfold in unexpected ways.

    The plot covers the events of A Court of Mist and Fury with major alterations. In this AU, we see what could have happened if characters were honest with each other, and talked things out rather than speaking in riddles or just avoiding topics altogether. We also get some actual apologies for egregious behavior that got glossed over in canon (looking at you, Rhys Under the Mountain) and big reveals that get put off to later books or not at all (looking at you, Lucien's paternity).

    Relationships in this AU are fully consensual rather than based on bargains made under duress, half-truths, or huge power imbalances, so romances that had an enemies-to-lovers flavor feel more like friends to lovers.

    Summary

    “Wow. Aren’t you a pretty little thing?”

    The corner of Nesta’s mouth turned up.

    She ignored him, continuing her path to her seat across from both Azriel and Cassian.

    Rhysand gave a small snort, “Eris, meet Nesta Archeron. The Night Court’s frigid witch.”

    Azriel heart raced, teeth bared at the insult.

    But Nesta only laughed, the sound echoing throughout the large hall like a symphony.

    Azriel glared as Eris’s roaming gaze took in Nesta, eyes simmering with lust and month hung open in hunger.

    ****
    The Night Court goes to Autumn with a proposition, but little do Cassian and Azriel know, Eris has a proposition of his own.
