    Summary

    Daine strode in, seven minutes late now, with an apologetic wave and a noticeable bloodstain on her shoulder. Numair realized with a hot spike of shame that he, along with approximately eight boys in their mid-teens, had paused mid-task and shifted their attention completely just to watch her walk in. He swallowed, rallied through his blush and completed the sentence, silently blessing the self-centeredness inherent to adolescence.
    Or: Love and friendship over the years

    Summary

    Alexander of Tirragen is willing to fight his oldest friend in order to choose Alan of Trebond as his squire. His focus is singular - to be the best swordsman in the realm, he needs to train with the best, and his young friend has entered that tier to him. Alex doesn't realize that this simple choice will contribute to the upheaval of the realm. And make an absolute mess of his extremely private personal life.

    Jonathan of Conté is heir to the Tortallan throne, beloved by his friends, his court, his country. The comfort of his inheritance and the assurance of his entitlement is not something that's ever been called into question. Until his choice of squire goes to the knight he can't say no to, and the narrative of his perfect princely life starts to be drastically rewritten.

    Featuring Alan and Gary as the ride or die best friends Alex deserved, Geoffrey of Meron as Jon's long suffering squire and voice of reason, JUSTICE FOR THOM, and all of the other fun details of how this story might have gone if everyone had three more braincells...

    Summary

    Emmeline of Tirragen vows to be a knight to redeem her family name. She is entering her third year as squire to the Lioness, but strange dreams are giving her an unwanted link to the enemy, and threatening to destroy everything she has worked for. Her lover, Squire Vania of Conté, is learning that the line between right and wrong is getting more blurred as she confronts what it means to be a royal knight. Meanwhile, discussions around same-sex lovers in Tortall are growing and getting heated, potentially fuelled by the rebels who may just be making their final stand…

    Summary

    AU The Emperor Mage, where Numair never left Carthak and instead became Carthak's--and the world's--most feared and powerful sorceror, the Black Mage.

    The Emperor Ozorne of Carthak has sued for peace, and Tortall's peace delegation includes Daine, sent to heal the royal birds. Inundated with warnings over the Black Mage, she vows to stay out of his way at all costs. But Master Numair is an academic at heart, after all, and he is not about to let the strongest wild mage to ever cross his path go unstudied.

    Summary

    “Arram wrote to me recently, just before they arrived. He told me she was the only person he had ever met who had never once been afraid of him.” He dragged his eyes off the couple on the bench and back to the beautiful blonde woman next to him. She looked tired, her dress plain, her hair dull. Her focus remained on the couple, and he noticed she stared intently at Arram’s hand, still stroking the girl’s shoulder. Her lip quivered. His voice softened. “I certainly can’t say that Varice... can you?”

    A short one shot. A conversation between Lindhall and Varice at the end of Emperor Mage.

    Summary

    “We’ve haven’t even arrived and you’re looking forward to leaving,” she teased. “Maybe you should enjoy travelling when nobody’s trying to kill or marry you for a change.”

    “That does seem nice,” Sandry acknowledged. “The Tortallans I've met certainly seem pleasant enough.”

    “There you go,” Daja said sensibly. “A summer and winter in a country nobody even knew existed until a few years ago, and then we’ll all go home. Nothing to worry about.”

    “And if there is,” Briar had come up to shore next to them, “the four of us will handle it. We always have.”

    Sandry looked between them and smiled.

    Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, Tris thought irritably along their connection.

    Summary

    Driven out of Tortall by madness and magic, Numair Salmalín finds himself seeking sanctuary within the tempestuous walls of the Gallan capital. Here, unrest boils below the illusionary calm of a country at peace: an unpopular king acts to outlaw the use of magic; a rebel mage and her patchwork assassin raise the people against their palace; and invidious hands work to manipulate the people into fighting each other instead of the forces that threaten them.

    Numair, ordered by his king to prevent the aftershock of Galla falling from claiming Tortall as well, finds that not even the greatest of mages is enough to stop the inevitable detonation of a starving city. With only the unstable wild mage, Veralidaine Sarrasri, and the duplicitous Savigny de Hartholm, the left hand of the king, to help him save Galla’s people, Numair is forced to take a side in a war he wants no part of.

    Galla will burn. Numair cannot stop it.

    And a figure from his past is determined to ensure that Numair burns too.

    Summary

    After dragging her boyhood friends to finally visit Alex’s grave, Alanna waits for a final mourner to make an appearance in the shade of his tree. He may be fresh out of the Black God’s embrace himself, but that doesn’t mean Thom of Trebond doesn’t have need to mourn the man he left behind, the love he couldn’t save.

    Summary

    Alexander of Tirragen is not buried honorably on his lands, nor dishonorably on traitor’s hill. Instead, his bones lie below a tree at the edge of the Royal Forest, not far from the pages’ training grounds. Alanna fought hard to lay him to rest here.

    Alanna, Gary, Raoul and Jon go for the first time together to visit the place where Alex is laid to rest. Not one of them has an ounce of emotional intelligence, which is why Alanna knew she needed to force them to do this, to finally process the loss of their friend.

    Summary

    Let’s talk about two best friends, who – as everyone knows – couldn’t be less alike.

     

    Everyone knows this. They laugh, when they say it, sometimes, or they scowl. Sometimes, it's said with simple astonishment. But they always say it, with the assumption threaded through their voices that it is as self-evident a fact as the sun rising in the east.

    (The scholar "Everyone" is justly famous for being very off-base.)

    A different perspective on Kel and Neal, through the years.

    The first time George meets Alanna, she's on a date with an asshole.

    Or, my take on a fandom staple: George is a waiter at the restaurant where Alanna is going on a lot of dates.

    Summary

    Onua had asked him for a “conversation”, though that was almost certainly too generous of a noun. “Sometimes I worry that Daine may have gotten too attached to you.”
    He shrugged, suddenly wary of that same old accusation. “Is it still too attached if it’s mutual?”
    “No, I think you two are very good for each other. If nothing else, I’m thrilled you have someone else to discuss finch beaks with.”
    5 + 1. Five times Numair has to discuss his relationship with Daine.
