Supplies and Materials: frame, acrylic, pastels (my current gen + romance card G3 "childhood romance"), novelty beads, glitter (Regret)
Word Count: 1397
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Lonura, Isshiri
Warnings: References to sex and the messy end of a relationship
Notes: Constructive criticism welcome, as always. This takes place during the fiveish years when Nolani and Lonura are pining not speaking to each other. Near-brother is a similar term to 'brother-in-law,' but relates to a formal romantic relationship that is not a legal marriage, for whatever reason. At some point, I should do probably do a thing about the marital/sexual laws of Glass. And maybe invent the rules of kefiri...

Supplies and Materials: eraser (Tudors AU), brush (advocate), watercolors, oils, modeling clay, charcoal, pastels (my current gen + romance card O3 "market"), glitter ("Sometimes you just have to try, even though you know it won't work." – Junot Diaz)
Word Count: 879
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Tana, Kellom
Warnings: Tana, arranged/forced marriage.
Notes: Constructive criticism welcome, as always. Because I clearly needed another AU. This one exists because Helena Bonham Carter played Anne Boleyn once. For the purposes of this AU, Feredar is one of the many small German states that existed at this time. The royal family of the City of Glass reigns in the Ottoman Empire, and I've rearranged a few royal marriages to suit the story. Unless I need to squeeze in another of my fictional nations as a direct counterpart (instead of an addition to the map, like Feredar), all other real-world monarchs and political figures will remain the same. Tana is approximately twenty-three here, making Kellom thirty-one. Andrell would be sixteen, and Mera nineteen.
