    Summary

    Queen Alexandria Woods of the Kongeda has won every battle she's ever fought. By the age of twenty she had done the unthinkable and united the thirteen great houses together into one nation; by twenty-four her great army had defeated the Reapers, a monstrous people far to the south that had been invading her land and murdering her people as long back as anyone could remember. Now Queen Alexandria must face her most difficult challenge yet: find a husband and secure her line by birthing an heir. It's the oldest duty in the book and the one that makes Alexandria's skin crawl. Nevertheless she is determined to do her duty, but when she meets a mysterious blue-eyed woman her world begins to turn upside down. When she learns the woman is nothing more than a common whore her advisers and friends suggest against ever interacting with her again, but for some reason the queen just can't stay away. Her curiosity only grows when the woman starts teaching her lessons she never knew she needed to have, and everything she learns about her makes her even more of a mystery. The queen is nothing if not stubborn though, and she's determined to figure the woman out.

    Summary

    'Before you,' he said, 'you can see more women than warriors. Cowardly, unarmed, they will give up the moment they see the weapons and bravery of their conquerors who have given them such a drubbing so many times before.' (Tacitus, Annals XIV.36)

    The first time Clarke sees the Head Girl she’s sitting on a throne, presiding over her dominion with a piercing stare and a crown of braids in her hair. Her warriors are spread at her feet, a multitude of them, all long-haired and wild and clad in identical brown regalia. There’s something of the sacred about her, like the crimson cloak draped across her shoulders and her divinity are one and the same.

    Or at least it feels that way.

    British girls' boarding school AU. Obviously.

    More Women Than Warriors by steklir (SilentStars)!

    Summary

    “dear heart,
    please break gently,
    I loved her then,
    but ardently,
    I love her still.”

    Clarke and Lexa. Inevitable and inseparable. Until they weren't. After four painful years and an ocean apart, Clarke gets a second chance at a first love with Lexa.

    OR that familiar trope: exes reuniting after some time and distance and pining.

    OR an intimate love story, the achingly soft focus kind.
