  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

    “Hey, do you have anything planned today?”

    “Hm?” Miles is trying to make ‘Monroe’ into a nine letter word containing an F and a D. “No, not particularly. Some more furniture shopping, perhaps.”

    “The answer’s ‘Mansfield.’ Wanna get married?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Of course, if anyone in the AA universe was going to be secretly royal, it would be Miles Edgeworth! He remains uninterested in women and in love with Phoenix, so they overcome the heir problem with a marriage of convenience to a lesbian friend.

    And Simon Blackquill gets to be samurai for a real liege! And Lang is President of Zheng Fa! And Franszika uses Interpol for good!

    And the non-chronological order of the story works amazingly well.
