...that I forgot to post before. Malik and Marid in the Basilica cistern under Istanbul. More info about the cistern, which is Roman and all sorts of awesome, can be found here. Stealth fanart for a scene that doesn't even come close to appearing in any of my fics, but very much appreciated.

Some beautiful Assembly of Bones fanart by caroline who wrote: 'I seem to specialise in illustrating scenes from this story that don't actually exist. Malik is recuperating and Marid's confidence has increased enough for him to climb the aqueduct by himself.'

So some of you may remember that I offered a ficbit based on a prompt of your choice to anyone who commented on the last chapter of An Assembly of Bones over at my blog. I've finished five one-paragraph stories which are posted below. However there's still time, so if anyone wants a ficbit based on any of the fandoms I've written for  (Final Fantasy, Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, Mass Effect, Dragon Age etc) then leave a comment of any of my posts detailing your requests and I'l get back to you with a (very) short piece of writing.

Ficbits are:


Assignments, part 1; for nerrianah, and part 2; for everbright. Malik and Altair, banter and speculation on the nature of the Eden fragments... )


Feathers, for sapphyashi. Pregame Auditore family shenanigans. )


Revelations, for yumearashi. Ezio is confronted by an indiscretion.  )


Disarm; Malik/Altair, for auragirl. )

So auragirl requested a summary post of all my AC stuff. It's been something I've been considering for a while so-here goes.

UPDATE: Both Livejournal and my Net connection are being more than usually temperamental. It's late and tomorrow I head off to spend 3 weeks living in a campervan. I meant to add links to the relevant stories, but for now I'll just point you to my relevant tags on the left there, or to my or archive of our own accounts under . Sorry. I promise I'll get round to it.

The series should be read in order, but they're supposed to be designed to stand alone as well.

The Crusades series (AC1) in chronological order:

In which Malik al-Sayf loses his arm and his brother, works his butt off, fights with honour, considers and rejects suicide, gives money to the poor, hates camels (more than once) stabs a man in the face (also more than once), abandons an old woman to the mercy of the Templars, is sort of kidnapped, gets laid, kills an Assassin Grand Master, steals four Eden fragments, catalogues a hell of a lot of books, and would fight to the death for a random child who he's previously dangled from a window and then slapped in the face. Somehow he manages to make all this seem both normal and easy.

The Eve of the War:
Standalone Assassin modern day AU fic featuring Subject 16 Danny Lind.

The Renaissance series (AC2) in chronological order.

Because Ezio can't bear the thought of being left out of anything.

The Assassins will be ready... )
So it is done :D This series has taken up quite a lot of my time over the last two years. It's the end of an era and to celebrate I'd like to offer everyone who comments on this fic a ficbit of their choice. It doesn't have to be AC themed but can be for any and all of the fandom I've wrtten for-please find a link in my tags to the left-though may I suggest the AC kink meme over at as a source for prompt ideas. I've enjoyed writing for this fandom a lot and will be sad to leave it. At the risk of sounding incredibly pretentious, I'd like to steal Stephen King's quote from the end of the Dark Tower series: 'Those were days when my imagination was so clear I could smell the dust and hear the creak of leather.'
