    Summary

    A series of short stories, not in chronological order, set during the Fall of the Dragon Riders. My take on the events leading up to Galbatorix taking control of the Empire, but follows canon as closely as possible.

    Summary

    Some 200 years after the fall of the dread king Galbatorix, two young dragon riders find themselves under the instruction of Eragon and his dragon Saphira, founders of the new dragon riders on their sanctuary island Edur. Dream and George, with their dragons Kiraka and Vindr, must grapple with their responsibilities to their people and their feelings for each other.

    ----------
    “You looked like a work of art that night.” George’s voice startled Dream, the elf had surprised him with his words as he stared intently at the image on the wall, lost in a memory. Dream had little time to process what his friend had said, turning to look at him. The words froze in his mouth as he saw George slip on his shirt, a hint of the skin on his back visible for just a moment.
    “Maybe,” Dream finally choked out, “But it was up to you to capture it” he finished. “Consider yourself lucky” George smirked. “I shouldn’t feed your massive ego like that” he continued.

    Summary

    Eragon and Arya are finally living together in the East. The New Order of the dragon riders is growing, life is ordinary, and Alagaësia is peaceful, but there is an adventure they would like to embark on. Moving past the heartbreak of two miscarriages at the beginning of their relationship, and the knowledge that conceiving for them is difficult, Eragon and Arya will try to fulfil their desire to be parents. Will they defeat the odds?

    The story, ideally, takes place after the amazing work “Of Poems and Maps”. It is not strictly necessary to have read it first, but my story contains multiple references to life events Eragon and Arya went through in that fic. It begins around 10 years after "Of Poems and Maps" ended and it explores one storyline the author left open.

    Summary

    In the years of prosperity for the Dragon Riders, there was a people who allied themselves with the Alagaesian Rider's Order. Hailing from the far north, where is snows nine months of the year and hails the other three were the Nordics.

    To Alagaesians, however, they were once called the Vikings.

    Nordics had their own Dragon Riding Order, made u of hundreds if not thousands of dragon species each with an advantage of their own unique make against the Alagaesians. To keep the peace between the many species of dragons and the people of Alagaesia, they formed an alliance with Vrael and his Order, and thus it stood to reason that Galbatorix would kill them as well if they refused to join his cause. However, there was a mistake he had made- one Viking woman had escaped from the slaughter and went into hiding, birthing a daughter years later in a small mountain village, Carvahall.

    This daughter is the rightful heir to the Nordic Rider Order.
    Her name?
    Heather Horrendous Haddock III

    Summary

    They navigated for days. The days turned chillier. Until one day, an immense wall made of ice surged in the distance. When Eragon and Saphira discover Westeros, it's not exactly the place they expected to raise dragons and train riders.

    When Jon Snow woke up after the Battle of the Bastards, he never expected to see a blue dragon in the courtyard of Winterfell, let alone a talkative one.

    Summary

    The world was dying, a slow and terminal death. The Blight was not a curse from the Gods-or Maker, it was an illness in the land itself. Without the magic that once saturated the land, the races connected to that magic were the first to show the signs, elves aged, dragons became beast. An Order had been created to slow this sickness, but the Order of Dragon Riders fell long ago.

    Summary

    Blödhgarm’s soft voice called out to her. “Drottningu,” he beckoned, not moving his eyes from the hollow.
    Squatting beside him to gaze into the depths of the tree, she was surprised to find a pair of eyes already staring back at her. Two large, very familiar brown eyes.

    Within the oak stood a baby boy, at most a little over a year old. He had small ears that grew to points, and softly slanting eyes that conveyed clear terror within. Small sticks and detritus had accumulated in the child’s curly brown hair, and he wore nothing but an overly large tunic, so long that it reached past his feet.

    Spotting the latest arrival, the boy let out a frightened cry and shuffled further into the hollow, his back pressing hard against the internal wood of the tree.

    “Hello sweetheart,” she breathed, moving down to his level and doing her best to seem non-threatening.

    At the sound of her voice, the soft brown eyes materialized once more, his head now cocked to the side with reluctant curiosity.

    Extending a tendril of thought, Arya whispered quietly within the recesses of the mind before her. Eragon? She asked. The responding brush of his consciousness confirmed what she already suspected.

    Summary

    ELDEST AU: Dragon magic does a lot more than just heal Eragon. Facing Murtagh on the burning plains has far more consequences than they could have predicted.

    Eragon x Vanir, the others mostly canon.
