  1. Summary

    This series is a predominantly original series of dark fantasy / explicit fairytale erotica. Over time, I shall be removing references to any other commercial fandoms (these only occur in Game Theory and in minimal amounts). Until then, it is a strange hybrid of mostly original work with my own original characters. Read the warnings and enjoy!

    CORE to the story are:

    1. Deeper into the Woods (40k total, a good introduction to the characters since the larger works are so long/daunting!)
    2. Game Theory
    3. The Nightingale and Terho the Mouse Lad
    4. The Court of Five Thrones
    5. The Ice Plague

    EXTRAS (see: fae tales verse - canon extras for more)

  2. Summary

    Continuing the saga in 10 years after The Court of Five Thrones, Unseelie dryad Mosk Manytrees and Seelie fire fae Eran Iliakambar find themselves devastated in different ways by a plague of destructive, sentient ice that sunders fae communities.

    Eran is convinced that Mosk is the cause of such destruction, binding Mosk to him and forcing him to the Courts to account for his actions. But the world has become more threatened than ever, and Eran and Mosk must make a pilgrimage – along with Gwyn and Augus – to discover what or who may be behind increasing instabilities that threaten everything the fae have come to take for granted.

  4. Summary

    A range of AUs and oneshots connected to the main Fae Tales Verse series. The individual AUs themselves aren't connected to each other, and are mostly grouped together in a series to make them easy to find. :)

    Summary

    Hundreds of eyes seem to pierce his skin anyway. As if the entire library were keeping a careful record of his every step as he entered one of the corridors. Judging. Yes, yes, Leonardo Oden was seen trying to be subtle in the exact sciences section. How pitiful.

    He presses the open book to his chest and tries to breathe.

    Summary

    “No Qunari would accept a Tevinter mage so easily... unless it was a ruse. When should I expect a knife in the back?”

    It was a ruse, at least in the beginning.

    Summary

    Four times having a governor module fucking sucked, plus one time [REDACTED: FILE MISSING].

    (Or: Murderbot has Emotions for 8,000 words. ART tries to help. So does Dr. Mensah, but like, in a decidedly less assholish way.)

    Summary

    Murderbot is hesitant to return to its Preservation humans for multiple reasons, one of which is its struggle with the reconfigurations the company has put it through before allowing Dr. Mensah to buy its freedom.
    It has more trouble than ever understanding what its humans, and especially its favourite human, want from it.

    Or, Murderbot turned ComfortUnit misinterprets everything because of what might be expected of it, and spirals a lot.

    Summary

    —but for someone whose whole job is to be whatever it is a customer needs to convince them to come back at least one more time, he himself had been hooked from the first time he’d been pinned like a butterfly to a board by Iwai-san’s gaze, nothing but pure self-assurance in the line of his shoulders, in the way he sat, thighs slightly parted. There was power enough in that look to have Akira at his feet in a second.

    or: akira’s an unstoppable force and iwai’s an immovable object but sometimes they seem to get that mixed up
