  2. Summary

    This is a series centred around Klavier Gavin in which everything happens as it does in canon, but with a richer backstory for Klavier. He has ADHD, bipolar disorder, and PTSD - the latter as a result of having been abused as a 14 year old boy. Thus, while he is in love with Apollo Justice, getting into a new romantic relationship isn't simple or straightforward.

    Klavier is both real German and fake German at the same time. The brothers were born in the US to a German mother and an African-American father. So they have, or qualify for, dual citizenship. Klavier is bilingual to the point of thinking in both English and German - but his accent is completely fake. Also, his legal name is Konrad (an idea that I must thank ronsenberg for), and his brown skin is real. Their parents are alive and well and living in Germany. And Kristoph is a GOOD brother, meaning that Klavier is completely blindsided when he turns out to be a murderer.

    Also features OC Gavinners: Pauly X, a non-binary black British bassist; and Clem, a Latina lesbian drummer. I don't care if canon says "The Gavinners are all guys" - I'm going to assume that Apollo can't tell the difference when a butch lesbian is hiding at the back of a photo :D

  3. Summary

    Martin Septim, the bastard heir to the Throne of Tamriel, gave up his life to save the world. Arriving at the Imperial City to be crowned Emperor, he found that Mehrunes Dagon had already broken into Mundus. Martin smashed the Amulet of Kings and called upon his god, Akatosh, to honour the sacred covenant between the gods and the rulers of Tamriel. His human body disappeared as he became the Avatar of Akatosh... a great dragon of burning holy fire, throwing Dagon back to Oblivion and sealing the barriers behind him. Then the dragon turned into a statue, which everyone thought would stand in the Temple of the One forevermore...

    Almighty Akatosh, however, had other plans for the last Dragonborn. As the God of Time, He knew that one day His son Alduin would return to swallow the world. When that came to pass, two hundred years later, He took Martin's soul from Aetherius and transformed the statue back into his body. Then He dropped him near the border with Skyrim: a wild-eyed amnesiac knowing only his first name and that he was a priest of Akatosh. Martin was picked up by the Imperial Legion, met Alduin as he was burning down Helgen, and discovered that he was the Dragonborn of Nordic legend. This is his story.

  4. Summary

    An alternative universe in which Emperor Martin Septim makes it to the Imperial City in time to light the Dragonfires before Mehrunes Dagon enters Mundus. Follows on from my Martin Septim/Alix de Feu series and my NaNoWriMo novel Draconis, but diverges from them just before the ending of Oblivion.

    But Martin's story doesn't end with his survival. He needs to deal with an Elder Council who resent the way he ended the Oblivion Crisis, and his lack of training for the role of Emperor. He needs to juggle his love for his boyfriend, Alix de Feu, with his duty to marry an Empress and produce heirs. And he somehow has to cope with negative comments about his parentage and sexual preferences without simply turning into a dragon and burning everyone with fire. Thank the Nine that he has the eternal support of Alix and his Blades to keep him sane, protect him from further assassination attempts, and stop him becoming the second coming of Mad Emperor Pelagius!

  5. Summary

    Martin Septim was never supposed to be Emperor. Born as the illegitimate son of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, he was raised by farmers, without knowing his true identity. But then Uriel and his three legitimate sons were killed by the Mythic Dawn, a cult worshipping Mehrunes Dagon, an evil Daedric Prince. Martin was left as the only man with the Septim blood necessary to wear the Amulet of Kings, light the Dragonfires of Akatosh, and prevent Mehrunes Dagon from breaking through into the mortal world. It's rather a change from his previous life as a priest of Akatosh.

    Of course, no one can save the world alone, and Martin is helped by a powerful young mage, named Alix de Feu. Martin and Alix become lovers, which is just as well since Martin needs all the love and support he can get.

    Summary

    Apollo hates math. It just doesn't make sense. He also hates Klavier Gavin, who's obnoxious and flirty and seems to understand math without even trying. So he asks Klavier to help tutor him, and weirdly enough, combining the two things seems to make both of them better.

    (But Apollo refuses to admit that Klavier's dumb math metaphor is anything short of ridiculous.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Klavier tutors Apollo in math, and flirts with him via a metaphor about lines. Apollo points out that his metaphor only works if the lines are straight - "I'm glad I'm not straight."

    Very, very funny.

    Summary

    In which Klavier's increased jumpiness following the conclusion of AJ:AA gets noticed by Miles Edgeworth. After a particular incident in in Edgeworth's office while discussing Simon Blackquill's soon to be "convict prosecutor" status, Klavier is very confused when Edgeworth serves him tea, and tells him about Manfred von Karma.

    ---

    Set between AJ:AA and Dual Destinies, and I think Edgeworth at this point is a lot better at reading people / emotions than folks give him credit for. Rated T for Klavier having some stress mannerisms that I don't think traditionally fall under "self-harm" but could have eventually gone there, among other things.

    Klavier misunderstands something that Edgeworth tells him, and has a panic attack in his office.

    Summary

    As 30-year-old Apollo settled back into his old life at the Agency, the defense attorney realized this relative peace hadn’t even been his old life. Peace was something new, and frankly the mundaneness was kind of exciting.
    He hoped, but didn’t expect, everything to fall into place accordingly.

    Uses Ace Attorney-style text boxes with edited graphics, showing the characters' changing hairstyles. Very cute story AND style.

    Summary

    Working at a gossip magazine aimed at teenage girls is just a way for Apollo Justice to pay his law school tuition--until his article rating Klavier Gavin's outfits goes viral.

    After that, he's got half the Internet reading his articles, and it's inevitable that Klavier finds out.

    I can't even begin to describe how much this story makes me laugh. It is ridiculously funny.
