  1. Summary

    AU that splits off from Magic's Price as of ch 17. My original goal was simply to do an alternate ending that took a Leareth/Vanyel detour, but I've since used it to explore Van's trauma and the ups & downs that brought to his relationship with Stef. I doubt Scavenger will be the end of it, but it's not a bad place to stop for now. I'm leaving the series as 'unfinished' because I do still have other ideas for more post-canon AU content.

  2. Summary

    Stef/Van BDSM fics with lots of love and backstory and pairing meta and the odd bit of canonsporking. I am very open to prompts/requests in this vein, so please tell me if there's anything you'd like to see.

    Summary

    Vanyel is given another choice after defeating Leareth. He can go back in time to when he first came to Haven and first fell in love with Tylendel, root out the enemy, and prevent Valdemar from ever facing the war that had plagued it for nearly twenty years. A different chance to serve Valdemar and save its people from destruction.

    But he can't save himself from the grief of seeing old friends (and lover) alive after all this time. And how will they react to him, now more than twice his age, hair silvered, and more powerful than anything they could've expected out of a once skinny boy exiled from Forst Reach?

    Such a great premise, and the prose is top-notch.

    Summary

    So they parted ways at the end of In the Bleak Mid-Winter (and if you haven't, you should read that before this, it continues from there) but there's no way Van and Stef aren't going to find each other again. They've both got a lot of stuff to deal with.

    ...I hate titles. Yay for Christmas getting songs stuck in my head!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    this series will be the death of me ISTG. This part does some really interesting work on Van & Stef's relationship where (and it says a lot that this is so unusual in this fandom), Van takes it upon himself to, very patiently, reach out to Stef & comfort him. Esp after part 1 of this series, I was so glad to read something that took Stef's healing seriously and worked toward resolution without rushing or forcing anything.

    Summary

    Young Stefen gets wind that some fancy lady dressed all in red is looking for a street singer and manages to avoid her--and isn't ever taken to Haven. He has a much rougher time of it and he and Van only meet later, after the other Herald-Mages are killed and Vanyel is heading north to finally face his country's unknown enemy.

    (This has nothing to do with Christmas, but it is bleak and winter-y and Christmas songs are...you know, pervasive this time of year.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a real h/c rollercoaster of a fixit AU, and builds a portrait of Stef as a tenacious, vulnerable survivor - very much IC, but in such dramatically harder circumstances. It's so good, and I badly need just a little more closure here.

    I feel so bad for how hard I laughed at this fic. Oof, Van, no.

    Summary

    Vanyel and Yfandes survived the end of Magic’s Price. The Heraldic Circle has sent them abroad to promote exchanges of magical information between Valdemar and other countries. One of those countries is the Ethuveraz.

    This story takes place about ten years after Magic’s Price ends and about three years after The Goblin Emperor ends.

    Straight up, I don't even know The Goblin Emperor, I'm just here for Van talking nice and looking pretty and wow, this is some fine prose.
