    Summary

    He came, twisting out of the shadows like a snake out of a burrow long since ignored. She should have known, it should have occurred to her that he would corner her when she was as alone as she could be, staring out at the night sky as if it would provide relief for the low heat settled in her belly. That he would come to claim her when her guard was down the most, when she was at her most vulnerable.

    After all, insult was not a color Emet-Selch wore well.

    Summary

    It was in the year 1512, a time when the Senate rule Garlemald in greed and the people knew only suffering, that Aeliana first met the man who will later become Solus zos Galvus.

    The sun was out of the clouds for once and the bakery was lively with people. But her eyes were fully on him, breathless with a sense of familiarity she could not place. But his golden eyes only looked back with scorn and from his lips were equally barbed words.

    She blinked and decided she did not like him.

    Added an additional chapter (16) for a more conclusive epilogue.

    Summary

    In the ancient Amaurot, a workplace romance of the ages is about to… not unfold? Azem can't figure out why Emet-Selch is mad at them. At this rate forget getting closer, they may not even remain friends!

    Luckily, Emet-Selch can’t refuse the invitations to dates when they are even marginally related to work, and Azem is prepared to take advantage of that.

    As a new threat endangers Amaurot, the two must work together to save Etheirys, all the while struggling to mend their fraying bond of trust.

    Summary

    The Warrior of Light decides to distract themselves from Emet-Selch by taking a trip to Rak’tika. It backfires.
    -
    Serves as a sequel to Hidden Worship, but can be read alone given you know the TLDR which is: A’zem, the WoL, remembers parts of their life as Azem upon physical contact with Emet-Selch, and now they are having an existential crisis.

    Summary

    “Are you going to tell me what it is that has you so upset?” He sounded annoyed more than concerned.

    The shorter man tapped his chin gently, as if thinking on the subject. “We were there much longer than anticipated. And with our masks off the entire time, no less.” He said gently.

    “You don’t like showing your face to that many people.” Emet-Selch confirmed.

    His partner shook his head with a gentle smile, looking at him out of the corner of his eye. “I don’t like showing yours to them.” He corrected.

    Summary

    The Warrior of Light systematically burns every bridge around her, insisting she has no one she can turn to but the Ascians in her quest to undo the flaws of Zodiark's creation. Meanwhile, former friends desperately seek to stop her from betraying all they have ever worked for, despite it being almost certainly too late.

    Emet-Selch, revived by the Warrior's black magic, stands caught between disgust and desire for the lover he once knew and the half-souled witch she is now. He cannot avoid her: death has not ended his own enigmatic plans, and she is a tool at his disposal.

    Elidibus can feel the jaws of a trap closing in from all sides, and must find and stop the source before all is brought to ruin.

    All would save the world in the manner they deem best fit. They cannot all succeed. Nor are they the only forces at play...

    Continuation of Snag.

    Summary

    Isolated by power, by circumstance, by trauma, the Warrior of Light finds herself drawn in by the words of Emet-Selch and the knowledge he dangles just out of her reach. It becomes painfully clear that the two are far more alike than comfortable for her to admit, and that his need for an ally is real. She is no ancient sorcerer, but she bears the remaining glory of fallen Mhach, and she has ever been resourceful. Even the inevitability of death is malleable, to one brilliant but unwise.

    She will save all possible worlds. She must. To die trying is not an option.
