I wrote this fic for a Christmas exchange and realised I never posted it. I hope you enjoy. Malik and Altair in time travel adventures-what's not to like?

Title: By The Stars Men Guide Themselves.
Fandom: Assassin's Creed
Rating: PG-13, for stabbing.
Warnings: Mild peril. Disney death(no blood).
Summary: When Altair and Malik steal an Apple of Eden from the Templars in Persepolis-they all get more than they bargained for. Travelling forwards in time, they meet their successors and try to unravel the mysteries of the Eden fragments. Standalone, but part of my Crusades series.
God sets on the earth landmarks, and by the stars men guide themselves...

like the calm before a loaded gun

This Christmas I participated in a fic/art Christmas exchange: I wrote the AC short Tale of the Thief, which I'll post here soon after editing, and received this awesome piece of fanart for my AC Crusaders series in return. I love all the little details, like the Apple, Nusaybah's scarf, and the eagle feathers. And that's Malik, Altair, Nusaybah and Marid around the edges of the map. I have a particular weakness for fanart that doesn't show the characters faces, but I also got another character piece of Malik too1 I love love love fanart :D
A great way to start the year.

I have fanart for A Thousand Days! Drawn by the amazing Caroline Parkinson

My favorite parts are the tiny steps on the right hand side. That,and the figures. Malik always looks so exasperated.

so come out, we have been waiting long enough

Okay, it's done!!! Chapters 6-11 of Thousand Days are up on A03, which brings the story, and Malik and Altair's adventures, to a close. Read it here!
Link to AO3, because the formatting's way prettier. Also posted on fanfiction.net, because old habits die hard. Much love to caroline for beta reading. If you liked it, or you really didn't, if I've added tomatoes or doorhandles or anything else that wasn't around at the time, or if you just want to chat, message me. 

Fanart following soon! Yes, fanart, how fantastic!

Title: A Thousand Days
Fandom: Assassin's Creed
Rating: Strong 15
Warnings: Violence and death
Summary: When the Alamut Assassins are captured by Salah al-din's soldiers, Malik forms an unlikely alliance to save their lives, but as usual, events don't go entirely as planned.

For I dream of towers falling, and all my kingdoms fail...

The Assassin's Creed fandom is always fun! I have lots and of love for the Third Crusade; it's an an intriguing period, with plenty of strong historical characters and interesting events and trivia. And the Fourth Crusade, when the Crusaders headed for Jerusalem but ran out of money, so the old blind doge of Venice convinced them to raid Byzantine Christian Constantinople instead (that's where they got the Horses of Saint Mark's). And history geeking aside, you have to love the antagonistic/sarcastic relationship between Altair and Malik. Together, they fight crime, or you know, evil masters, whatever.

Jerusalem is ours as much as yours...

Hey..remember that postgame angsty Malik fic I wrote four years ago? Well, it has a sequel! Two sequels in fact. I've been waiting to write this fic every since I read about the siege of Jerusalem a few months after the events of the first game. It has swordfights! Saladin! Sarcasm! Multiple historical inaccuracies! God I still love this fandom.

Here's the original..Length of God's Patience, sixteen thousand words of post-game Assassin angst featuring everyone's favorite one-armed Assassin.

Title: The Length of God's Patience
Rating; PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers and violence
Summary: Malik struggles with the loss of his arm and his new position as head of the Jerusalem Assassin's Bureau

Your presence here deprives me of both...

Here's the first sequel; The Subject Tonight is Love, the start of a much longer fic that kept heading off in another direction entirely. Five thousand words of conversation and innuendo. Malik/OFC.

Title: The Subject Tonight is Love
Rating: PG
Warnings: Nothing more alarming than the word 'prostitute'
Summary: Takes place immediately after LOGP. The Assassin's Creed doesn't cover every situation in which Malik finds himself.

Your Jerusalem must be a very lonely place...

And the second sequel: A Thousand Days, a novella length and very much in progress adventure story inspired by my discovery that the siege of Jerusalem happened only months after the ending of the game.

Title: A Thousand Days
Rating: 15
Warnings: Violence and historical inaccuracies.
Summary:Post-game. The Order is in disarray following Al Mualim's death. Saladin has retreated to Jerusalem as the Crusaders sweep across the Holy Land. As the Order's foothold in the city grown more precarious by the day, Malik al-Sayf, rafiq of Jerusalem, recieves an unwelcome message from the Assassins of Alamut.

Jerusalem is ours as much as yours...

Have fun. I'll be over here trying to convince myself that writing fan-fiction for a game released seven years ago is retro rather than sad.
