    Summary

    5.0/5.3 spoilers, shifting perspectives, primarily narrative third person. The author's own Warrior of Light, Sarah Corehealer, and Emet-Selch. Characters you love will die in this, most likely starting with the Scions, so go in fully warned on that front.

    It is perhaps a little inevitable when shipping with an Ascian to desire to do a corruption fic, whereby the dear hero loses their resolve and becomes the thing they fight against out of love for one who already has fallen into evil actions. In that sense, this fic should come as little surprise to those who follow my work and particularly those who read and enjoyed Ascian, Azem. What will hopefully come as a surprise is how I try to flip that idea on it's head a bit, and the slow pace I wish to take with it. I look forward to seeing what comes out.

    Sarah has just witnessed Emet-Selch pluck Y'shtola from the Lifestream, to the joy and appreciation of her Scion companions. Watching them depart back to Fanow, but realizing he remains, she seeks to use this moment of solitude with just him to try and talk, and suss some things out of him. In their exchange, she begins to suspect things are far more then they may seem.

    Summary

    Starting in 3.1, and takes place only in Heavensward. Mainly focused on Gylian/Ardbert's relationship. Eventually there will be some side-stories to fill in gaps not mentioned in this series in another collection. For now, they are just briefly mentioned.

    Summary

    "For those we have lost, for those we can yet save." Words that all Scions take to heart, Lucius even more so.

    (A set of drabbles before, and during a shade's second chance. Will absolutely not be chronological)

    Summary

    Poised, elegant, disciplined and practically radiating holiness would be a few words to describe a paladin worthy of the Scion's title of "Warrior of Light" but it's far from what they got: a loud-mouthed, sinful and swearing spur-clad country girl with a good heart and even better sense of duty from the dust and sands of Southern Thanalan. She may not be the hero that they -or the world- envisioned but deep down, she's the one they need.

    This work of fiction is narrated (mostly) from my WoL's perspective through her journey from ARR all the way up to SHB, including some of her own backstory and personal connections. For the most part, her story follows in-between main story quests and focuses more on her personal development and relationships and those of her friends/comrades in response to those events. My memory is a little hazy about the specifics of the storyline but I hope you enjoy it all the same! Lastly and most importantly, I wrote this work of fiction as a way to work through and deal with my own trauma responses that came with the FFXIV storyline so I ask you to please be mindful. <3 Thank you <3

    Summary

    This is set just after the defeat of Innocence in Shadowbringers 5.0. So major spoilers for that!

    Lehkah could feel the Light consuming his very being, taking over and spilling out of him.
    His luck finally running out he does his best to say what he needs to.

    Goodbye.

    For most of the Scions he was not concerned, but the idea of dying in front of Alphinaud and Alisaie? The Leveilleur twins he'd come to see as his own kin? The idea was worse than knowing he was about to die.

    No one could predict how the situation plays out, and what would the hero do? When he learns the lengths people will go for the Warrior of Darkness

    Summary

    G’raha Tia didn’t realize just how important Shadowfeare Noire would become to him. **There will be lots of major spoilers for “Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty”, “Echoes of a Fallen Star”, and “Reflections in Crystal” as well as the story goes on (and possibly a few bout Eden, Sorrows of Werlyt (hope I spelled it right lol), and YoRHa : Dark Apocalypse)** (chapters 2-3 will be edited down the road)

    Summary

    Spoilers for patch 5.3 post-Shadowbringers.

    Isoldahlia has not even begun to start dealing with the events on the First, but there is little doubt that she is not the same person who was torn away from the Source by desperate magicks. She must now struggle with both her identity and her purpose.

    This is my first foray into FFXIV fanfic. No idea where it's going. Could be a long story. Could be just a series of vignettes. What's written may not even be the first chapter in the future. Everything is fluid. I blame The Rose Mistress for inspiring me to writing again. I highly recommend her beautiful fic "Astral Fire, Umbral Heart" if you are a fan of the delectable Ishgard Sandwich, or even if you're not frankly.

    Summary

    "The Warrior of Light has fallen" were the words that heralded a year of hell for Eorzea as the Garleans invaded, annexing the city-states and subjugating its citizens. The Scions of the Seventh Dawn are no more. Now hope only exists in a rebellious faction led by Tataru Taru and her two commanders-- Gaius Baelsar and Estinien Wyrmblood. With the odds heavily stacked against them, Gaius determines that the Garleans are hiding something in the indomitable Castrum Nocte and decides to infiltrate it. What he discovers changes the course of their hopeless war.

    Summary

    The Warrior of Light answers the call to the First and among the light-ravaged land of Norvrandt finds something wholly unexpected: the time and the peace to remember what it is to be merely human rather than the Weapon of Light. The allies he kept at arm's length so long become family, and finally, here in this most doomed of lands, is some comfort from war and all it has taken from him.

    Or

    The Exarch will stop at nothing to save his inspiration, even from the darkness inside the Warrior of Light's own heart and mind.

    Summary

    Three days passed since Ardbert had been revived; a gift in the form of a new body for him brought into the Source by what could only be explained as Hydaelyn’s divine will. Three days passed of being disallowed any kind of privacy between the two of them for fear of what this stranger's body might do. Three days of painful tension between Vela and Ardbert, a tension that could only be resolved in her quiet room away from prying eyes and ears.
