    Summary

    The Final Days are coming... and Amaurot is afraid. Though none are more afraid than Ishtar, a newly inducted child into the Scribes, the chroniclers of the world's past, present and future. Born for the explicit purpose of becoming a Scribe, she is their youngest - and one of their most talented - members. Yet she is plagued by fear, anxiety, and a desire for answers, as the Convocation meets and meets, and Azem is nowhere to be found...
    The beginning of the end of the star. The birth of an Ascian. And the start of the story of a corrupted child's vengeance...

    Summary

    After a prolonged absence fighting the effects of a mysterious Sound that has appeared across the ocean Azem abruptly quits the field, bringing reports far more disturbing than the Convocation had truly believed or understood. Not that they thought their Shepherd a liar or particularly prone to exaggeration, of course, but hearing his direct account, seeing his haggard exhaustion, the horrors he conjures from woven light and the brimming trauma when he speaks of his experiences, strikes each one to the core in a way hasty reports have failed to do. And so they must divine what to do about this threat, one that, it seems, is more severe than they could have imagined.

    But why does Azem seem so burdened? What catalyst prompted his hasty return? And why does he oppose the brilliant idea of a grand Creation so staunchly?

    Summary

    My next installment in my main series, which is also something of a departure from the MSQ as of 5.4. It has themes from the game that will be touched on as they are currently arising within the scope of this work and works to come, such as stuff with Fandaniel and what he's up to. But I am getting closer to the point where I feel comfortable going off the rails and making my own full canon, for Sarah and the characters I want to write and in some cases ship. And in turn, focusing on my own path for the story, while respecting what the game developers and writers are doing.

    Sarah, Emet-Selch, Luciane, Y'shtola, Urianger and Krile have made their way to the Dravanian Hinterlands and are soon to arrive at Master Matoya's cave, there to try and beseech the old crone for access to the fabled Antitower Sarah once used to contact Hydaelyn, and who now seeks to do so again for the reasons touched on in Light of the Crystal. After a very surprising series of interactions in Matoya's company, several of them are permitted to access the tower, and go to speak with Hydaelyn. Unbeknownst to them, others walk with them on this journey unseen, and they may end up nowhere near where they started at the end of this journey.

    Summary

    Emet-Selch's greatest creation was his own son, no matter what trials he faced. All those years ago in the past when Thirteen seats became Fourteen, against his wishes his child fights to become Azem. Time at Akademia did not prepare him to see their very world begin to crumble outside their fair city.

    Emet would never be good when it comes to saying goodbye.

    Summary

    5.0/5.3 spoilers, shifting perspectives, primarily narrative third person. The author's own Warrior of Light, Sarah Corehealer, and Emet-Selch. Characters you love will die in this, most likely starting with the Scions, so go in fully warned on that front.

    It is perhaps a little inevitable when shipping with an Ascian to desire to do a corruption fic, whereby the dear hero loses their resolve and becomes the thing they fight against out of love for one who already has fallen into evil actions. In that sense, this fic should come as little surprise to those who follow my work and particularly those who read and enjoyed Ascian, Azem. What will hopefully come as a surprise is how I try to flip that idea on it's head a bit, and the slow pace I wish to take with it. I look forward to seeing what comes out.

    Sarah has just witnessed Emet-Selch pluck Y'shtola from the Lifestream, to the joy and appreciation of her Scion companions. Watching them depart back to Fanow, but realizing he remains, she seeks to use this moment of solitude with just him to try and talk, and suss some things out of him. In their exchange, she begins to suspect things are far more then they may seem.

    Summary

    A chapter based slightly longform fanfic exploring some ideas I've had recently, and exploring a character I specifically enjoy a great deal and would like to elevate, at least within the sphere of fanfiction. Also a Convocation of Fourteen piece.

    Post 5.3 and occurring six years after the post Calamity start date of 1577, in an invented chronology where game events took place over a long, real life equivalent span of time. Featuring a FWoL, my character Sarah Corehealer, in keeping with the continuity of my main series (of which this can be considered a bit of a spin off), but which focuses on one character, establishing them for use in the series as it continues into 5.4 content fanon.

    Archer Guildmaster Luciane Corne has been given the gift of the Echo in a sudden, apparently accidental experience of Hydaelyn's visions in her mind, rendering her weakened and unable to fulfill her role as guildmaster of the Archer's Guild in Gridania. Gifted in this sense but bereft of the Blessing of Light, she travels to Revenant's Toll and other locales to meet the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, seeking answers and aid. In this journey, she becomes reacquainted with a former pupil, and an even older former friend.

    Summary

    Life in Amaurot is good, as it has always been. Azem holds the 14th seat of the Convocation and sort of does his job, though he spends much more time with his chaotic group of friends than at boring meetings. As with all good things, the peace is coming to an end. Mysterious happenings outside their comfortable home prompts an under the table investigation that provides chilling revelations. Something bad is coming, but can it be stopped?

    The fic takes place before the Final Days of Amaurot (as depicted in the dungeon of the same name in-game) and DOES CONTAIN MAJOR SPOILERS. It is based heavily on the lore available to us and our own original characters.

    Summary

    An offering to join the Convocation is always a momentous occasion.

    He has not seen the visions that Anesidora has seen. Somehow, they feel as though disaster will always be wrought by their own hands. Such is their burden, the weight of the Star bears down upon them at night. Their concepts are a dangerous sort, just as volatile as they are beautiful, and despite Anesidora’s amiable nature, they are cursed. Maybe that's why Anesidora is so drawn to Hephaestus.

    Summary

    A one shot, reader insert fic from Emet-Selch's perspective. Post 5.0/5.3 spoilers. Reader insert female coded WoL. Emet/WoL ship.

    Something of a dialectic on Emet-Selch and the nature of several aspects of his personality. Principally, his outward versus inward nature. His beliefs and hopes. His motives and the conflicts between them over time. Shifts between periods of time, including time as Solus, as Emet, and as just Hades.

    Written in a sudden spark of inspiration, but also just as a means of exploring some themes for a moment outside the context of my main series, for my own elucidation. Getting them down on paper so to speak. It can be considered somewhat incomplete, given the subject matter versus it's length, but as a first stab at it, I think it works well to illustrate what I find perhaps is most compelling in him as a character.

    Summary

    A three part piece in my series, grappling with a few subjects/emotions but, principally, my developing opinion of Hydaelyn at the present moment within the current story context, both in the game canon and in my own developing headcanon. Work is now complete, but I am probably going to revise it a bit before I call it finished.

    Sarah is lost in thought on a chilly Ishgardian evening, reflecting on recent events and, more specifically, her developing thoughts on Hydaelyn and the seeming reality of her own tempering in service to the Mother Crystal. Emet-Selch appears beside her to offer consolation, but in their conversation the both of them end up reliving some painful memories of her last moments, and the circumstances of the Unsundered's survival through the Sundering.

    Their conversation turns later to other matters, such as his thoughts on the dragons and Midgardsormr, who comes to speak with them about the past they both have shown him through her experiences on the First. Finally, Y'shtola returns with some friends, and a surprise for them both.

    Summary

    Azem, believing that forgiveness is easier attained than permission, "borrowed" one of Lahabrea's creations for a quick jaunt around the world.

    Lahabrea is, for lack of a better word, displeased.

    Summary

    A quick one-shot reader insert fic with no gender Azem/Emet-Selch. 5.0/5.3 spoilers/canon ending divergence.

    Azem rediscovers themselves in a moment of weakness following the battle with Innocence and turns from their course, at the end of a long road, by virtue of Ardbert's final act saving them from the Lightwarden's poisonous Light. Through Emet-Selch's efforts, Azem is readmitted into the Convocation and made an Ascended Ascian, in service to Zodiark and shorn of Hydaelyn's Blessing, but not without incident.

    I might further explore this idea and perspective in future one-shot works with more dialogue but wanted to get the idea down on paper, as it were, beforehand. My thanks to JanuaryBlue for giving me this idea on Twitter last night. This one goes out to you, my friend.

    Summary

    Sarah and Emet-Selch have begun their journey around Eorzea, starting with Ishgard, accompanied by Krile, Urianger and Y'shtola who are eager to learn more of her past through him and his recollections, as well as learn more about the ancient world and Amaurot. During their journey to the See, the conversation drifts into unexpected reminiscences for the Warrior of Light, that show her more then she expected as to the circumstances of her former life, prior to becoming Azem.

    Continuing series themes/stretching things a bit further into the realm of both fleshing out a bit of the nature of Amaurot's society as well as my character's Azem headcanon. Expect to see more of the same as we continue to visit each city, and visit more places in memories. Also, an exploration of souls and how memories might work in concert with the aether of a soul.

    This work is dedicated to Ozma (the floating orb) and Ozma (the author here on AO3), the latter of whom being someone who has long been proficient in the Ascian fandom and an endless source of inspiration to me and my writing this past month. Thank you so much for coaxing me into sharing my work here and contributing to this fandom and our shared affection for the Ancients.

    Summary

    Amaurot, the great metropolis; home to the famous Anyder University. You are a poor, meager college student, living in the dorms, attending classes far too early in the morning, studying for exams far too late in the semester.

    He's Emet-Selch. An infamous billionaire and executive of an extremely powerful, wealthy, and ultra-secretive conglomerate - Zodiark Corp.

    Turns out he attended Anyder - no surprise there. He was in the Convocation, too. From the moment you and him meet, to the moment you start dating, you find out about more and more you have in common with him - all the ways you are deeply, shockingly, delightfully compatible.

    You also have tons of sex. (He's really good at it. Like, really good.) Other things, too, but there's a lot of sex.

    Summary

    ***Shadowbringers spoilers***

     

    During the final days of Amaurot, each Convocation member played a vital role in the events that led to the creation of Zodiark. This was Nabriales's role.

    Thinking about the special powers Nabriales uses in battle, I began to wonder if the meteors were in fact an extension of his time magic - that is, if he was pulling them from the past. From Amaurot's final days. That's how this story happened.
