    Summary

    "I do swear by Skaia's guiding light to eschew ambition and direction to serve in the holy retinue. I will lay my head in the safety of the bower and pay penance in thought and deed. For the King of All Winters and the Undying Prince, I will provide succor and balm, and yield my being to ease the burden he carries for us all." 

    An off-the-cuff jamfic for the Strilondes discord that spun rapidly out of control. In which Dirk plays the role of resigned god-prince of Skaia, locked in a twisted version of the Year King fable. His life is a sorry routine until one year, he receives a very bold, strange offering from the heir to House Harley, Jake.

    A story about cycles, and how to break them, and the patterns left in the scattered pieces afterward.

    Summary

    Your name is Dirk Strider, and all your life as far as you can remember, which is a pretty damn long time by now, you've lived at this hidden temple to Apollo. You study medicine and music, keep the temple in good shape, say prayers, and occasionally take care of pilgrims who make their way here on religious journeys.

    Or at least you did, until the temple stopped getting visitors. You'd resigned yourself to living alone out here until Jake English, a young man wandering the world with a curse. He's "questing", he says, but the look of it is he's got no choice.

    You tell yourself you shouldn't, but it's hard not to bond over curses.

    Summary

    Some mistakes are so fucking big that they divert the path of your life entirely, sending you somewhere you were never meant to go. Some mistakes are so seismic and so obvious that when you look back on your life all you can see is the beacon where you made them. Some mistakes leave you so far off course you don't even recognize who you are or why you're still here.

    You don't usually get a chance to make amends.

    Summary

    The detritus of your life consists of a puppet, some worn-out cassettes, a sword, a multitude of foster homes in the greater Houston area, computer programs of varying quality, postcards from around the world, satirical entrepreneurship, a truly embarrassing crush on Harrison Ford, and, against your better judgment, a baby. Everyone has an important job to do.
