    Summary

    July 1942, the world is at war.
    Stalingrad is in Germany's sights, but she isn't ready to go down without a fight.
    Through a chance encounter she finds herself becoming a spotter for a sniper, her role as a scout set aside to assist more directly on the battlefields of her home city.
    Thrown into the heat of battle from an entirely different angle they must keep one eye on their target, and one on their backs.

    Summary

    She would have a husband who did not want her. One who clearly resented her, hated her. If Rey had been of the swooning type, she might have given into that melancholy, but she composed herself, and no more tears crept down her cheek. Years of life’s difficult lessons had taught her that she must bide her time, be wise and not given over to anger.
    And there was such a great deal of anger stuffed deep down in her chest. She dared not examine it at all, lest a multitude of horrors fly out.

    Fixing her gaze once more upon the dark, foreboding presence of the man who sat opposite her, Rey smiled.

    “I will marry you, your royal highness,” she said softly. “If you will ask me.”

    “Ask you?” He seemed surprised by the very notion. “But hasn’t… ah, I see. You’re a romantic.”

    “No, your highness, I am not,” Rey countered. “I am a pragmatist. If we are to join in the sight of the Force as man and wife—”

    “You’re religious,” the prince regent huffed with amusement. “That’s even worse than a romantic. Tell me, my lady, do you truly believe that there is some mystical force that moves through every living thing, binding us and… penetrating us?”

    Summary

    Lilias had been a safe haven. A chance to rebuild. A chance to forget.

    “You owe me a favor and I have a proposal to make.”

    Summary

    “A woman’s life is nine parts mess to one part magic, you’ll learn that soon enough…and the parts that look like magic often turn out to be messiest of all.”
    —George R. R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

    Roose Bolton unrolled a piece of parchment and dipped his raven feather quill into a glass inkwell with a silver lid that shone in the candlelight. “You must think me a monster, my lady,” he murmured.

    “I do not believe that being a monster is such a bad thing.” Wynne delicately moved across his solar to stand in front of his desk, her heart beating harder with every step toward him that she took. “One woman’s monster is oft another woman’s beloved.”

    Wynne Dustin thought her greensight was more of a curse than a blessing until she changed her favorite cousin’s grisly fate. If forewarned is forearmed, then she might be able to destroy the inhuman monsters beyond the Wall and win the prophesized War for the Dawn. Roose Bolton learning her darkest secret and offering to wed her was something she never saw coming.

    Summary

    “It wouldn’t be a real marriage, obviously,” Ben clarifies, as though that’s an important point that might not have occurred to her. “Though we’d have to live together, obviously. And I’m sure there are a lot of other things we’ll have to do to convince people.”

    ---------------------

    (Or: Rey is nearing the end of her temporary work Visa. Her friend Ben offers to marry her so she can stay in the U.S. She says yes.)

    “You’re not expecting to find love’s young dream here, surely?” Peter indicates the room full of people, none of whom have given Stiles a second glance.

    Summary

    La profecía decía así: “El rey dragón conocería a la prometida de hielo, y cortejaría su corazón hasta reclamarlo como suyo entregando el propio en el lugar más alto. De la semilla fuerte nacerían un rey y una reina. El príncipe prometido que los salvajes y reinos seguirían. La belleza y pureza del dragón negro cautivaría a los hombres quienes con deseo mórbido desearían robarla de su trono. Del lobo blanco despertaría el dragón para reclamar lo que le pertenece por nacimiento, pero sería el lobo blanco quien sacaría a relucir los instintos de la loba.”

    Summary

    “…so, no, Ben Solo, unless you want to marry me, there’s nothing—NOTHING—you can do to help my situation!” Rey screamed from the top of her lungs.

    She turned roughly away when she felt a stray tear roll down her cheek. God damn it. It was so mortifying. Of all the people in San Francisco she could break down in front of, it had to be Ben-fucking-Solo. She took a few steps backwards, intending to spin around and run away before she could embarrass herself any further, but a large hand wrapped around her wrist before she could.

    “Wait.” He didn’t say any more for a second. He only looked at her, his eyebrows drawing minutely together, as if he was puzzling through a stubborn bug, an impossible problem.

    Then, just as Rey was about to shake his hand loose, she heard him ask, “Do you want to?”

    UK borne Rey Unkar thought she finally found a home in Silicon Valley: she has close friends that love her, a great career at Resistance Labs, a vacation to Puerto Rico in the plans, and even an online friend who she can nerd out with on all things C++. Then, her H-1B extension gets denied and she has 10 days before she is required to leave the U.S.

    Summary

    "I will only ever tell you this," She spoke so gently as if it were a child she was speaking to. A child and not a grown man, a man who had once broken her. A man's whose family had taken everything from her. "In my life, I've had no regrets. My love for you, the moments in that abandoned cottage. I have never regretted them, even when they hurt me the most. When you hurt me most."

    "Wei Liang-"

    "A life best lived is one without regrets," her smile was ironic with a hint of nostalgia. "It's a life where you act and stand by your decisions. I have no reasons to regret you." She raised her hand, caressed his cheek swiping away the fallen tears. "But you will have every other reason to regret me."
