Rating: PG-13
Warnings: death
Summary: Love is sacrifice.. Duty means keeping the world as whole as she can: no matter what the cost to herself.

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: abuse (reference to torture and a particularly brutal death), child abuse. also a reference to a teenager's consensual sexual activity at an age expected of the setting. I think that covers everything, but if I missed anything, let me know.
Summary: When he’d been younger, he’d hoped for a peace not forged in war and blood: but now that he was older, he understands the harsh truth. Oradea will never have peace, never have stability, unless it is through force, and he’s already long ago made peace with the harsh necessities of what he must do and the prices he must pay.
Notes: ...this was an interesting POV to write from, but definitely not fun to write. Razvan, voivode of voivodes, is very definitely the major antagonist for this story.

Warnings: one-sided incest (tagged to be safe, though they're distant cousins), obsessive one-sided love, completely unhealthy relationships
Summary: Symeon of House Valeth was the only scion of the House of Shadows ever struck from the House rolls for being a traitor. Just what was he thinking? Also an object lesson in why obsessive one-sided love is strongly discouraged in their society.
Notes: ...I have no idea what I was doing with this. Takes place thirteen years pre-main story: the attempted summoning mentioned is the same one that Kyrion stopped.

Supplies and Styles:
Word Count: 2823
Rating: R
Warnings: quite a lot of background violence, child/teenage soldiers and their deaths, the narrator's swearing.
Summary: What happens to Lilia, but not yet what happens after. Sequel to no surrender, no retreat.
Notes: Finally managed to finish this: I've been trying to write it as long as no sweet moment set aside, so I'm glad I did. So also just as rough and uneven in characterization given the long period of time it's been in development hell. This and no surrender, no retreat were originally planned as one story but I couldn't make it work at the time.
skip
I'm not sure whether this would qualify for the season bonus or not given that Lilia dies. On the other hand, given the setting is basically "everything sucks for everyone forever", she's definitely treated as well as everyone else. ...also wow, I am the winner of the "ironic titles" award.

Supplies and Styles: novelty beads, "who wants to live forever" (Queen)
Word Count: 1378
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Zorya's language, child/teenage soldiers, apocalypse aftermath.
Summary: There are a lot of things that Zorya misses from the old world, but she thinks that she misses music the most. Zorya, Lilia, the very shittiest of acoustic guitars, and some songs: Zorya remembers, and Lilia's never heard any of the music she remembers.
Notes: Super rough because I don't actually remember where I was going with it. Probably uneven on characterization since it's been at least a year since I've written these characters.

Warnings: familial strife (brothers being assholes). infidelity.
Summary: Mihai is tired of this argument, truly he is. Hope often deceives the foolish man, he knows, and perhaps his brother is not the only fool.

Two brothers discuss their half-brother and his place in the family. It's not a productive discussion.
Notes: I finally crawled out of my hole where I've been in for months. Hooray for writing.
