    Summary

    Beatrice finds herself musing not over duty and sacrifice and God, but the truth of angels, if they can be created rather than summoned. If they can take the form of women with overeager mouths and careless limbs and eyes with a depth that beckons - a crooked finger, a spiral staircase - if they can be both human and not, both beautiful and terrifying.

    Ava asks, What do you want, Beatrice?

    (Tell me and I’ll give it to you. Tell me and I’ll build you a home there. Tell me and I’ll rearrange the universe to make it all fit, angels and demons be damned. Tell me it’s me. Me. Me.)

    Literally everyone needs to read this unbearably perfect story.

    Summary

    “Wow,” someone said behind her. “That was so fucking cool.” 

    Beatrice’s head snapped to find the source of the voice, not believing her own ears. She wondered, briefly, if she had sustained a worse concussion than she’d realized when she'd been knocked out. Maybe she was still unconscious, dreaming, or even dead. Because standing across from her was Ava Silva, grinning at her with a wild, unbridled joy. “Has anyone ever told you that you’re kind of a badass?” 

    Beatrice huffed out a laugh, and felt a tear slip down her cheek. She took a step forward, hands shaking as she reached for her. “Ava,” sounded almost like a broken plea falling from her lips, but she couldn’t find it in her to be embarrassed.

    Until Ava’s smile faltered, then fell altogether into an expression that was entirely unknown to Beatrice.

    “You–you know my name?”

    Summary

    Ava knew that ambushes were by nature, supposed to be a surprise, but this was fucked up.

    Ava didn't wait for any of the others to reply, she grabbed the sword and phased through the van, vaguely aware of Beatrice calling out her name.

    She wasn't about to let a group of assholes hurt her friends.

    Summary

    Though technically a very slow burning Dany/Arya femslash fic, not knowing the ending is driving me nuts. So this is my interpretation of the events following A Dance with Dragons. Rated M, since the books also are. I apologize in advance, since I am a very sporadic poster. Also, all things ASOIAF belong to GRRM, and possibly HBO...

    **Not compatible with Winds Of Winter**

    Summary

    "Greta has a lot of rules. Rules keep her safe. Rules keep her from being arrested or put away or even killed. Rules are her house, but not her home. They make a bare bones shelter: nothing more, nothing less.

    Still, she can’t live without them."

    mostly a greta character study but also a timeline of her feelings for carson

    Some people are such gifted writers I can’t even find the words.
