Summary: Valath and Nidan are very happy at college, despite the supposed incompatibility of their courses of study--her magic and his science. But when their career paths take them in very different directions, things start to fall apart.



Valath lay in the sun with her eyes closed. She knew Nidan was there next to her, his breathing just as slow and comfortable as hers, the warmth of his skin the barest addition to the sun’s warmth. This was contentment, she thought. This was how life should be.

Then he rolled over on top of her, caught her shoulders in his hands, and kissed her. She kissed him back and laughed, opening her eyes. “We’re in public,” she whispered to him.

“I don’t care,” he whispered back, kissing her again. “It’s not like anyone doesn’t know about us.”

She shook her head. “I hope not. But there are still some things that should be kept private!”

He rolled off her but didn’t take his hands away. “I suppose you’re right.”

Unfortunately, now that her contented drowse had been interrupted, thoughts came crowding back into her head.

Summary: When Artona leaves the planet Halos for the backwater Caila, she expects to settle into a nice, quiet life with her fiancé, Mark. But she arrives to the startling discovery that Mark is not just an ordinary man--he's the Lord of Caila, the hereditary and elected ruler of the entire nation. And now she's being pulled into politics along with him, which would be bad enough if their political views were the same. She loves him, but this isn't the life she was looking for, and now she'll have to make a choice.

Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] cm_bigbang
Warnings: (skip) Graphic violence, major character death, noncon/dubcon, sex involving underage characters (they are 15 and 16). Yes, I managed to write a fic using every single AO3 warning.
Summary: When Emily's old friend, Matthew Benton, is killed, she suspects foul play. She and the team catch the killer, Father Paul Silvano, and have him sent out of the country.

Soon more murders, even stranger ones, are appearing on the BAU's radar, and John Cooley is hanging around a lot more. (AU/tag to 4x17 "Demonology.")
Author's Notes: Thanks to [personal profile] ariestess for the inspiration and beta! Story is full of spoilers for 4x17 "Demonology" and also includes slight, blink-and-you'll-miss-them spoilers for Emily's arc in season 6.

Summary: After having her death faked, Emily Prentiss expected to travel around Europe, hiding from Doyle and having contact only with JJ--not to be surprised in her hotel room and whisked off to South Dakota to hide in a warehouse and help hunt down quasi-magical artifacts. Now that Doyle is dead, she can return to her own team, but her conscience stops her. She can't leave until they solve the mystery of who is using the sword of Gilles de Rais to murder children. Bringing the BAU and Warehouse 13 together to catch a killer isn't going to be easy, but it's the only way.
