  4. Summary

    Fingon was a king whether or not he used the title. He was a king because people chose to follow him, people who were lords themselves, with their own liegefolk. And the model for lordship at that level among the Noldor was kingship.

    Summary

    The first time they were grown-ups, in the Golden Age, the Pevensies lived their lives almost entirely for Aslan - and then when they were thrown back to England, they lost years trying to recover their childhoods, going back to fight his wars for him.

    The second time, they don't let him in.

    *

    "And where are the kings and queens of the Golden Age? The Pevensies?"

    If a lion's expression - already thunderous, if only by the wild edge behind his eyes and the deadly jaws that glint as he speaks - could darken, it would. It's a strikingly obvious cold spot in the paradise of warmth that he has torn down a whole world to create.

    "They are no longer friends of Narnia. They think of only nylons and lipsticks and invitations, these days."

    Vastly thought-provoking, and deals soundly with ‘the problem of Susan’

    Summary

    Maedhros makes it into Harvard — business, not law. His professors love him; his classmates come away with vague but positive impressions. He remembers everyone's name, parts crowds just by walking through them. He graduates top of his class and gets a human resources job at a bioinformatics company that’s studying genetic links to various forms of cancer.

    It’s important work. Some Doms, some subs, this company isn’t about to get sued for discriminatory hiring practices — but Maedhros notices that he’s never asked to get anyone coffee, is never patted on the shoulder, is never leered at, is taken far more seriously than his coworkers who are openly submissive.

    Lovely, very effective AU where Dom/sub orientation is culturally/socially/politically etc important. Beautifully written.

    Short scenes from the lives of four (half-)sisters, the unacknowledged daughters of the Great Avar.

    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?
