TITLE: Conversations With Ghosts
AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~12,000 words approx
SUMMARY: Nathan's Trouble came back gradually, a little each day ever since he walked alone down the armoury hill and left his heart behind. A few days after he finally awoke with no sensation left in his body, they found the first corpse with aether-smudged eyes.
Now he faces questions he never wanted to ask. Are the Troubles coming back? Is the apparition of Duke seen in Haven responsible for the killings? Can Croatoan's reach extend beyond the walls of the new Barn, and even death itself?
PAIRING: Duke/Nathan, Audrey/Duke/Nathan
NOTES: written for PhoenixDragon in the After Forever post-finale fic exchange: Duke isn't dead, but isn't technically alive, either. Nathan had to make a choice, Duke was not that choice. But he feels haunted and wonders if he made the right one - as attacks on Haven begin by a serial killer and Duke is the obvious suspect, even as he is not really there to defend himself.
This story is set as an alternative to the last ~2 minutes of screentime in the finale; Audrey is still in the armoury, and Nathan is still trying to live his life and rebuild Haven.

SUMMARY: "I think you were all the heroes of some big story, and now here am I, stuck in the Epilogue." Paige remembers, piece by piece.
NOTES: written for Rabbitt in the After Forever post-finale Haven ficathon. 'Something exploring the actual ramifications of Audrey coming back as Paige.' This didn't quite go the places I expected it to go, but I find myself quite pleased with it? Also, in which far too much is read into Paige's name. I'm not completely sure where the reference to Paige being a teacher came from, but I've seen it mentioned by a few people in fandom so I have written with that in mind. The fic quotes briefly from Tennyson’s ‘Ulysses’.

AUTHOR: roseveare
LENGTH: ~18,800 words approx
SUMMARY: Nathan Wuornos hid his magic and took up bartering his flesh for coin after watching his father burned at the stake. But one day, an aggressive client cries "witch!" and Nathan finds himself in the citadel jails. An unexpected reprieve appears in the form of shady priest Duke Crocker, who offers to release Nathan in return for his services... both physical and magical... in bringing down his hated enemy, corrupt Crown Inquisitor Lady Mara and her consort William. Nathan has no intention of betraying another witch, but he'll take the chance for freedom... and to play with the delectable priest's guilty lusts while he's about it...
NOTES: Crack fantasy romance novel AU written for the Unconventional Courtship challenge.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

"It is a Dark Era, one when a lusty lad will do what he must to survive. Even if it means bartering flesh for a palmful of coins. . . Forced to watch his father burn at the stake, Nathan Wuornos knows the danger of the gift he inherited - a powerful magic that must stay hidden. Until one night when he's accused of witchcraft and Nathan finds himself behind prison walls, awaiting certain death with a roguish priest unlike any man of the cloth he has known. In reality, Duke Crocker is as far from holy as the devil himself, but his promise of freedom in return for Nathan's services may be his salvation. Locked into a dubious agreement, Nathan resents his plan to have him seduce and ruin his lifelong enemy. But toying with Duke's own lust for him is enjoyable, and he agrees to be his pawn while secretly intending to use him just the same..."

--Based on 'The Harlot' by Saskia Walker.

The roles could've gone either way. But I've been joking about writing hooker!Nathan since the season 3-4 hiatus, so~
