    Summary

    Novokribirsk was consumed, utterly, by the horror of the Darkling's creation. The Shadow Fold twisted more than just the people.

    -----

    An exploration of Paris Burning in the setting of the Grishaverse. A series of one-shots, with some semblance of an overarching plot once I get past the cities' births.

    Summary

    Under the right circumstances, Cities are born, the living, breathing, feeling personifications of the buildings and streets that bear their names. Life for a City can be complicated and painful and very, very long...

    For Gondolin, firstborn City of Middle-Earth, it was also... confusing.

    Summary

    Elrond and Rivendell are — not like Turukáno and Ondolindë; neither of them dances. They sit together, sometimes. Rivendell sits in the Hall of Fire on the nights when Lindir sings; more often than not Elrond will join them, and put his head on their shoulder, and sometimes one or the other of the twins will sit at their feet.

    (Glorfindel's world was never wide, and after centuries of living here this new realm is still strange to him.)

    Summary

    Santa Rosa is a young man, and beautiful, dark-haired and dark-eyed and pale as the moon.

    They love that about him, the tourism boards who put his high-cheekboned face on their advertisements for wine tours, the brewery that asks him to make an appearance for the one week a year they sell a particularly popular beer; the City can’t say no to them, not really, and so he smiles that soft meaningless smile into the camera and says yes, and lets them.

    They cover up his scars. It’s almost sweet of them — if they’re going to sell Santa Rosa’s pretty face, they might as well do the work of it themselves.

    Summary

    In a world where cities are personified, the City of Paris has been missing for centuries, driven away by the horrors of war and the worst humanity has offered him.

    Enjolras dreams of meeting Paris, and leading him to a better tomorrow.

    What he doesn't know is that Paris is now a cynical drunk who calls himself Grantaire.

    Summary

    When the lock started turning London didn't blink. If those little fuckers decided to try decapitating she was going to laugh in their faces. At least Mary of Scots had had more style than Victoria.

    Then the rusty eye grate opened and she recognized those eyes.

    "Oh, it's you. Did you bring pie? I'm starving."

     

    In which London is not a beautiful maiden but she is stuck in a tower, and Lisbon is bad at feelings but good at big gestures. Mostly.

    Summary

    (humans, of course, can lie to Cities. They aren't often believed, but that is hardly the point.

    The point is that they can)

     

    Orxford's humans have a tendency for being inveterate liars. Lyra's Oxford taught them well.
