shuofthewind: Swallows on the Beam
Three years after the coronation, a plot to overthrow the Emperor has been put into motion. Disguised as a noblewoman, Lan Fan plunges into the Xingese court—and into a courtship with the emperor himself. "You are my master," she said. "There is nothing that I will not do for you." He smiled then. "So why won't you kiss me, then, Lan Fan?"

One of my favorite fics if not the favorite.

galaxysoup: Paper Bag Diplomacy
Princess Elizabeth has vanquished the Dragon and danced off into the sunset. Too bad the story doesn't end there! Now she has a kingdom to run and some very uppity neighbors to manage. Her only weapons: a half-burnt country, a certain way with words, and the kind of moxie that lets her bluff a dragon while armed only with a paper bag...

Dialux: if you try to break me, you will bleed
It had been a slash across her chest from a White Walker’s sword that finally ended her life. Sansa’d landed in a puddle of her own blood, and she’d died quickly, quietly.

And then she’d awoken with a gasp, trembling, in a bed that had burned under Theon’s betrayal.

shuofthewind: The Sun In Splendor
It's been three years since Lyra Stark was executed, and Galen Erso--her husband, her betrayer--became the Imperial Maester. Since then, Jyn has been in the Red Keep, waiting and longing for a chance to escape. She's spent three long years in King's Landing when the Dornish emissary comes with a choice. She can stay, and be married to a man who will kill her, or she can flee to Dorne, a land she's never known.

It's not much of a choice.

[Game of Thrones fusion. The White Walkers don't exist. Dragons? That's a different story. Oberyn!Cassian (sort of), Sansa!Jyn (sort of), and some bloody damn politics.]

blue_lacquer: The Prisoners
Mai and Ty Lee are trying to adjust to life in the Boiling Rock when they learn they're being transferred to the prison near the Fire Nation capital. Mai's uncle has rivals among his fellow wardens who demand that they be removed from his custody to avoid a conflict of interest. At Warden Poon's prison, Ty Lee finds new, unexpected friends in the Kyoshi Warriors and is comforted by being closer to her family. Meanwhile, Mai meets some of the oddest people she's ever seen: water benders from a swamp in the Earth Kingdom. She even becomes friends with one of them in particular, who challenges her pessimistic view of life.

Gehayi: Love Like a Djelibeybian
Ptraci doesn't mind a political marriage for the sake of Djelibeybi's succession, but she doesn't understand why everyone seems to balk at the idea of the queen taking handmaidens to bed; after all, no one minded the *king* doing it, and she's doing the same job.

AdaptationDecay: The Case of the Vanishing Vampire
Reg Shoe and Constable Visit team up and Fight Crime! (Also argue)

Reg and Visit are drawn into a mystery at the heart of Ankh Morpork's undead community. Why would a lifelong black-ribboner suddenly try to kill his landlady? And why have his ashes mysteriously disappeared? With the rest of the Watch focused on a threat to the new underground rail network, Reg and Visit will need to work together to solve the case, because if the two of them can't manage to put aside their differences, somebody's going to get away with murder.

The continuing adventures of Shezan Tolkheera and Ilgamuth Tarkaan, because Calormen is just as valid a part of the Narnian world as Narnia itself.

Eventually this should include three main stories -- "Out of Season," "To Every Thing There Is a Season," and "A Change of Season" -- plus occasional sidefics.

Ito Ichiru: Bedroom Politics
Holographic cameras whirred as Isaac stepped out of the VIP lounge and offered his hand to Corin. Corin shook it, with a firm confidence and an easy grin that Isaac did his best to match, conscious as always of the camera's gaze. Through it, the millions of Callistoan voters would be watching, judging.
