    Summary

    To show the full extent of the lives that are lost in a world where orogenes choose to have Guardians to control them, I decided to take the scene when Syenite appears to have her happily ever after, dial it up to ten, to show the true possibilities on Meov, and then rip it away. I wanted Syen to heal, to learn that Schaffa was wrong; that an orogene could live somewhere other than the Fulcrum, that they could have a loving family, that no one had to choose between her and their own safety. Schaffa told her that she could not live in a comm; could not have a normal life. That it would not be safe. But in that moment, Syen learns that she can, that it is possible, that she has it. And she decides to take hold of that life with both hands. She now has a life to live.

    I wanted all of these things to happen, to explore the good that could have been, so that it was that much more devastating when it was ripped away. I gave Syen her best life. And then I kicked it out from under her. The higher you are the harder you fall, right?

    Summary

    Nearly fifty years after the last Season, the Imperial Fulcrum in the capital of Yumenes is functioning once more, gathering and training orogenes from all over the continent for the glory of the Empire. But not all are as obedient as the Leadership of the city would like that they be, and two orogenes searching for their families might cause unexpected change.

    Summary

    【Story independent to the plot of BE. 】
    How do we know there was a Moon when it has long gone?

    Several Sanze people try to find proof of a lost Moon: an unsupported and rewardless task.

    (The length of text is not evenly distributed: the second chapter will be a long one.)

    Summary

    NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT THE BROKEN EARTH TRILOGY. I'LL EXPLAIN IN THE STORY

    Despite a penchant for saving the lives of thousands of people, the possible destructive capabilities of any Orogene are as clear and damnable as rust, and equally as despised. As you said: Orogenes were a subset on your planet, and not by any natural means of selection.
    So that brings you to where you are now. Living, working, and more or less thriving in your independent life as a denizen of Harlem, New York (turns out coming from a planet that uses precious and semi-precious stones as currency can get you pretty far in the monetary world). You are well off, more or less. You have friends. A job. Stability. So it’s understandable to say that, when the Battle of New York happens, you are not having it.

    or

    Reader is an Orogene living on Earth-616 when the battle of New York happens, things go from there, and Loki is an impulsive shithead

    Summary

    Okay so I finished The Fifth Season and thought to myself "I would literally read 30 chapters of Alabaster and Syenite vibing on that island with their hot boyfriend" and then I remembered that's what fanfic is for.

    Anyway! Syenite finally lets herself believe that she's safe in Meov, and she cries bc she and Alabaster and their child are finally safe and Alabaster holds her.

    What happens, mainly on Schaffa, during the blank space when the Moon has returned and the stone eaters are underground with Father Earth.

    Initial drabble. McKinley's "Chalice" has such a floaty sort of world-building but also earthquakes, it seems like it could fit tidily into the more robust world of Fifth Seasons and the Broken Earth.
