    Summary

    The Patriarch's Sacrifice spun the world of Erna out of control. Centuries later, the landscape of human society is unrecognisable; sorcery is now the exclusive domain of the Methuselahs, immortals who preserve their youth by swapping into new bodies as their old ones age. Resurrected by unknown powers into this alien new culture, Gerald Tarrant finds himself hunting for a truth deliberately concealed, struggling to find his footing in a world grown darker and more twisted than even he imagined was possible.

    Summary

    What would it have been like, Damien wondered, to get used to this? To have more than just a few unshadowed weeks of happiness? Surely God wouldn't offer a hard-won second chance only to let it end like this.

    This is fic-of-fic for StraysInfiltrator's Full Circle, in which I get to write all the soft/dramatic/romantic off-screen Damien/Gerald bits. Can be read as a stand-alone.

    Summary

    “A time loop,” Tarrant repeated, appearing faintly amused. “So tell me, what happens?” 

    Damien shrugged. His voice felt thick. "We succeed. You die." 

    "Ah." The Hunter gave him an odd sort of look before turning in the direction of Shaitan's peak. For a long moment he was silent. Then, without turning back towards him, he said quietly, "Vryce, isn't that rather the point?"

    Summary

    Gerald Tarrant's last bid for survival failed, that night in the Forest, but the Unnamed have bigger plans than mere torture for the soul of their wayward servant. Shortly afterward, Damien Vryce faces the temptation of his life, when he is offered the chance to regain the most cherished people he has lost... in return for swearing himself to the service of the very forces he spent his life combatting. It is the kind of deal with the devil that a man of his faith should reject on principle. Every man has their breaking point, though - and with the Hunter's death, Damien has finally found his own.

    Gerald figures out what's been going on between Damien and Karril at the worst possible moment, and in the aftermath of their unexpected victory against Calesta, he struggles to come to terms with his own feelings for Damien. The conclusion he comes to doesn't sit very well with Damien, but the Knight has already been through Hell and back; he's not going to let this be the thing that breaks them.

    Summary

    Fairly certain that the persecution they feared isn't coming, Gerald decides dinner at a top-of-the-line restaurant is in order, as a belated celebration of their victory. Damien is more than on board, particularly since he's been struggling with how to start that very important conversation with his other half. When their waitress gets a little too bold, Damien says a bit more than he meant to - but it doesn't stop the evening from being a resounding success.

    Summary

    After rescuing the Hunter from the very jaws of Hell, Damien finds himself stressed, lonely, and overwrought. Karril offers him a night of pleasure with no strings attached, and the Knight finds himself too tempted to say no. He ends up enjoying himself immensely, and also learning quite a few things about himself in the process. Unfortunately, Damien's never been great at 'no strings attached', and it doesn't help when his partner shows him such care and kindness.

    Summary

    Damien felt himself oddly hungering for a dissonant note somewhere, a roughness, some small spark of flawed humanity to come through underneath the cold perfection.

    Summary

    Years after that fateful first meeting in a sunlit alley, Jenseny and Riven have a great many reasons they shouldn't be together, from a complicated family history to the new vow of non-interference that the Iezu are sworn to. None of these reasons have kept them out of each other's arms.

    Summary

    Freshly returned from the rakhlands, Ciani hears about the war with Calesta and its widely-publicized end. A loremaster is never satisfied with only half the answers, though, and she cannot simply accept that Gerald Tarrant is dead; even less so, that Damien might be as well.
