    Summary

    Magic Beholden is the broad series name for a series of contemporary fantasy stories, set within the same long-term continuity in a universe parallel to our Earth, where magic exists alongside the mundane.

    Different magical nations exist in parallel to mundane ones, so that magic exists in semi-secrecy, and the world is populated by a variety of magic users, fae, vampires, angels, demons, and so on and so forth. Especially coming from fanworks, I have a big emphasis on complicated relationships and different individuals' dynamics with one another, and obviously I have a big focus especially on LGBTQ characters.

    This is a long-time passion project of mine, and my general plan for a lot of these works is to publish them both here on Ao3, and also on eBook retailers once longer narratives are in a state of completion, or once there's sufficient short stories to collate together in a series!

    A lot of Magic Beholden stories are also published on Medium here, and once I have other sales links, I shall post them!

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    ::2019 note: This story was written BEFORE the TV show introduced the character of Gwaine. It's not that I can't spell, or that I'm perversely writing him out of character - I incorporated other characters from Arthurian legend (Kay, Gawain etc) into my story, and lacking prophetic abilities, my versions naturally don't mesh with the versions subsequently introduced into the show.::

    Summary

    The year is 1942, and Europe is at war. Captain Victor Nikiforov, an intelligence operative for the NKVD, has been trapped in Berlin by the German invasion of the USSR. Posing as a Nazi industrialist, his days are spent charming information out of Axis diplomats to try and keep the Red Army fighting another day.

    Yuuri Katsuki, a foreign-educated bureaucrat in the Japanese Embassy, has secrets of his own concealed beneath his unremarkable demeanour. When he uncovers Victor’s real identity, it will alter the course of both of their lives forever.

    Summary

    It seems to Aimé Deverell that there is very little point to life, except for what pleasures can be enjoyed before the grave. Life is short - thank God - but at least there's enough in the world to dull the senses in the meantime.

    That philosophy shatters like glass when he meets Jean-Pierre, an angel.

    (This is an original work with some heavy inspiration from Les Misérables.)
