    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

    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

    To be the child of a god was to be the equivalent of royalty.

    Daine, daughter of Weiryn, had been raised as such—though her father had no priesthoods dedicated to him alone, so she had been passed from the priestesses in service of the Great Mother Goddess to the priests of Mithros and back again, occasionally staying in the House of Gainel or Pelmry's schools or the Smith's God's temples. She spent a great deal of her childhood on the road.

    When the king of Galla sent her to court at the age of thirteen, she was finally allowed to settle, and it was at that time that she met Arram Draper, her first true retainer.

    Summary

    In the near distance, he heard a rather disturbing crunch of bone.

    Horrible suspicion trickled down his spine. "...Daine?"

    Both sheepishness and obstinance intensified.

    "Daine, where's Emperor Ozorne?"


    In which Numair arrives at the menagerie just slightly too late.

    Summary

    So many paths, so many journeys. So many ways to find one another.

    Collection of prompt-driven shorts focusing on Daine and Numair as they navigate shared moments. Each entry stands alone and is not connected to one another. Mix of genres, and canon-compliant and au-based.

In their effort to offer aid they'll find out if they're the heroes they've been made out to be, find the ties that bind them tested, and be forced to confront the fears that have built year by year.

    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.

    Summary

    He closed his hand and snuffed the light. "None of your medications are working because none of them are meant to turn off your senses—which are working just fine, by the way."

    Daine gaped.

    "My advice: stop feeding your mind chemicals it doesn't need and go into a veterinary field," he said calmly, like a man who hadn't just held fire in his palm. "The road is difficult, but I suspect you've got a talent for it."
