    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

    After dragging her boyhood friends to finally visit Alex’s grave, Alanna waits for a final mourner to make an appearance in the shade of his tree. He may be fresh out of the Black God’s embrace himself, but that doesn’t mean Thom of Trebond doesn’t have need to mourn the man he left behind, the love he couldn’t save.

    Summary

    Alexander of Tirragen is not buried honorably on his lands, nor dishonorably on traitor’s hill. Instead, his bones lie below a tree at the edge of the Royal Forest, not far from the pages’ training grounds. Alanna fought hard to lay him to rest here.

    Alanna, Gary, Raoul and Jon go for the first time together to visit the place where Alex is laid to rest. Not one of them has an ounce of emotional intelligence, which is why Alanna knew she needed to force them to do this, to finally process the loss of their friend.

    Summary

    “We’ve haven’t even arrived and you’re looking forward to leaving,” she teased. “Maybe you should enjoy travelling when nobody’s trying to kill or marry you for a change.”

    “That does seem nice,” Sandry acknowledged. “The Tortallans I've met certainly seem pleasant enough.”

    “There you go,” Daja said sensibly. “A summer and winter in a country nobody even knew existed until a few years ago, and then we’ll all go home. Nothing to worry about.”

    “And if there is,” Briar had come up to shore next to them, “the four of us will handle it. We always have.”

    Sandry looked between them and smiled.

    Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, Tris thought irritably along their connection.

    Summary

    The first time George meets Alanna, she's on a date with an asshole.

    Or, my take on a fandom staple: George is a waiter at the restaurant where Alanna is going on a lot of dates.

    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

    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

    Kel returns to the palace after a brief mission away to find her wife has caused an... incident. What follows is Kel confronting Jon and then helping Alanna through it, and a lot of quippy Kel & Alanna (and Buri & Alanna and Buri & Kel) moments.

    Technically takes place after my fic "Alanna, a Life", but you don't need to have read that to read this. All you need to know is that Kel and Alanna are married.

    A few TWs in the notes - rated Mature for smut and language!

    Summary

    "We could marry here, you know," Alanna said thoughtfully. "It's completely legal under Tortallan law, and they would throw a magnificent feast." Suddenly her eyes lit up. "We could save ourselves from a big court affair with nobles we don't even like as guests. No fussy clothes, no worrying about silly etiquette rules. George, let's marry here!"

    George couldn't help but laugh at her exuberance. "I've waited a long, long time to get you to join me at the altar, my lioness. The sooner the better."

    What could change such a perfect plan?
