    Summary

    Seeing James chained to a wall, shirt hanging open, a mocking expression on his face, Will simply couldn’t resist. He wanted. Will fell on his sword.

    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    James was panting quickly, biting his lips, his cheeks flushed pink, his fingers curled to fists, his eyes closed tightly, his forehead scrunched. He looked obscene. He was perfect.

    Will had done this to him.

    “Look at me.” Will had never used that tone before; he didn't know where it came from.

    James' eyes flew open, and something in Will purred.

    Summary

    "Don’t you think the best way to be certain about all of this shit would be if you also remembered what happened?”

    James would always follow Will, in this life or in the next and regardless of what his next orders would be, but he needed Will to remember who he was.

    “Tell me how to do it,” said Will.

    Oh, how good did it feel to hear orders!

    James smiled. “We need to find our tomb.”

    Summary

    School was going to be over for the summer in a week, and the four of them had been struck by a horrible wanderlust. Despite doing a great job of not talking about the camping trip (and not telling Marcus anything about it) it was always on the forefront of their minds. Violet woke in a cold sweat several nights after, wondering what would have happened if she’d been even slightly less strong. If Will had been less strong.

    OR

    Looking for answers after the disaster that was the camping trip, Violet learns about a world that she didn't even know existed. Will makes summer plans around it.

    Summary

    He dreamed of Sarcean. Of his long robes swishing across darkly marbled floor, the whisper of his silken hair on a pillow, the ghost of his breath on James’ shoulder, raising goosebumps.

    He wasn’t James, he was Anharion, and the weight of the collar was heavy around his neck. Dressed in soft, loose garments, he entered a room to find Sarcean already waiting, his long frame sprawled out on a chaise, the remnants of his meal on a silver platter next to him on a small side table.

    “My love,” Sarcean greeted him, and the sound of his smooth, velvety voice travelled through him, leaving James breathless, fear and desire warring in his belly.

    “My king,” he heard himself answer, and even while internally he recoiled in anxiety, his dream-self moved inexplicably closer to the man before him.

    Summary

    In an attempt to stop the ominous happenings in the village at the foot of the mountain, the villagers sacrifice the local witch (and historian) to the Dark King, a folkloric figure who allegedly resides in the mountain castle Undahar. James St. Clair is displeased.

    Otherwise known as the Beauty and the Beast AU where James is thrown into a cursed castle by a bunch of people who don't know what they're doing. Go figure.

    Summary

    The field behind Bowhill High School was utterly unremarkable in every way; Tall dry grass brushed people’s shins, crickets and grasshoppers jumped up from piles of composting plant matter, and the lack of trees gave everyone a view of the wild blue sky. The students used to play games out there, tag in the daytime and manhunt after sundown. The frequency of the night time games decreased, however, after the student council (called the Stewards, for some godforsaken reason) advised parents to keep their children away from the wilderness after dark. “There are bears and coyotes out there,” they said, “and it’s not safe to be hiding in the grass after dark.”

    OR

    James St. Clair's camping trip goes very, very wrong.

    Summary

    They were not friends in school, at least not to a noticeable extent. Secretly, every student was glad that they weren’t; It was a general agreement that separation was weakness, and sometimes that was for the best.

    They were almost like royalty. They seemed older than their seventeen years, ancients in the skin of teenagers. The world was made for them and them for the world, and on a certain level they knew that. They spent warmer summer days using a rope swing to fling themselves into the river, searching the riverbed for rocks while they let their wet clothes dry, and avoiding home as much as they could.

     

    OR

    A modern AU fic where Will, Violet, James, and Cyprian are all in high school together, being stupid teenagers who are still blissfully ignorant to the magic (and danger) around them.

    Title is from "Someone New" by Hozier

    Summary

    Found you.

     

    The boy looked to be around his age, with a tumble dark hair framing his handsome face. Their eyes didn’t meet but James felt at that moment as though the world had narrowed down to them two, an invisible line of connection pulling them closer.


    Forcing his eyes away, he quickly barked out an order for the Remnants to give chase as the boy started running, his companions following. 

    Watching them flee, James frowned as a feeling akin to disappointment stirred in him.

    Summary

    The land would be cold and dark if you were gone, he thought desperately, briefly closing his eyes to scatter other images, of empty blue eyes, a body slumped to the ground, precious blood spreading and soaking the sand underneath. “If I’m gone, they’ll execute you as a traitor,” he pressed out, voicing his biggest fear.

    He felt Anharion pull from his embrace and he opened his eyes to find him staring back at him. His blue eyes shone fiercely, defiantly, but his voice was trembling with emotion. “And I will follow you into death,” Anharion said thickly, “and I will smile, knowing I’ll see you again.”

    Summary

    James’ eyes bore into his own. “I remember everything…but you don’t, do you.”
    Will didn’t know how to answer. He’d had dreams—visions of the past—but they’d never felt like memories. Not exactly. “I’m not him,” was all Will could reply.
    “Not yet.”
    “James…” Will said his name like he was drowning in it. And maybe he was.

    -OR- A very self-indulgent continuation of Dark Heir because I cannot possibly wait two more years for the third book.

    Summary

    James St. Clair was eleven years old when he left the Hall, and he was twelve when he realized the certainty of his impending servitude. This story traces James life from that pivotal moment in his childhood to the conniving, arrogant boy he becomes in Dark Rise.

    Summary

    Even after close to four weeks, Anharion wasn’t used to the weight of the Collar around his neck. He found his fingers straying to it, again and again, almost unwillingly. Every time, he expected to find it searingly cold, and every time he was shocked to find it as warm as flesh. He traced the front, where rubies shone like spilled blood, and said, “You could have made it beautiful.”

    “No,” Sarcean said, very quietly. “I couldn’t have.”

    “You could keep me under its influence always.”

    “I couldn’t do that, either.”

    Summary

    “Are you going to kill me?”
    “No. I want you to stay." His voice was a whisper in the shadows. If Anharion hadn't known he was before the Dark King, he probably would have thought it was a plea. “You are too beautiful to be rid of me. You belong to me.”
