TITLE: The Witchfinder's Whore
AUTHOR: roseveare
RATING: R
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~

[Large] Further to this pair of images. The companion to this one will be the opening scene from Shattered, with Duke carrying blood-covered Nate, if I can pull it off.

This is the rat Trouble from Reserve, or another Trouble very much like it.
Summary: Decision time for Nathan and Duke -- and Audrey -- to try to map out a future for Haven... and themselves.

Notes: This is the last part, and since there is a definitive conclusion here, bear in mind that I am drawing the threads to a close while ignoring a good deal of the solutions that were suggested in season 5 canon, the first draft of the story having been written before those reveals. In a way, it's academic whether much of the information revealed in season 5 is true or not in this 'verse, because Nathan and Duke and co. don't have that knowledge and can only speculate in the absence of it.

Part 4: Remains )

Loosing this into the wild is a terrifying prospect. Should hopefully be posted complete in time for the last part to be uploaded for this Friday's Nuke Night on Tumblr.

TITLE: Shattered
AUTHOR: roseveare
RATING: NC-17
LENGTH: 73,000 words approx.
SUMMARY: Nathan has been clawing his way back to life since he returned to Haven. Dying might just give him the push he needs to get there. Duke/Nathan.
WARNINGS: references to violent sex, dubious-to-non-consent, death, deliberate injury, blood, addiction, mindfuck, trauma.
NOTES: Unbreakable #3. Canon compliant only up to season 4's Fallout, incorporating an alternate take on the season 4 plot arc but nipping season 5 elements in the bud. Novel-length, in four parts.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Part 1: The Death of Nathan Wuornos )

Or read on AO3
TITLE: Seven Day Week
AUTHOR: roseveare
RATING: M
LENGTH: 11,500 words
SUMMARY: Duke has no memory beyond the last few days and seems to be existing in a life of hard labour he's fairly sure shouldn't be his life, but things aren't all bad -- not since falling in love with the likewise-amnesiac 111, of the blue eyes and compulsively helpful nature. Duke/Nathan.
NOTES: Slightly canon divergent late season 1 setting where Audrey already knows she's immune to Troubles. Second of two mid-length Duke/Nathan fics written while I was supposed to be doing NaNoWriMo. The Trouble in this one was inspired by the Farscape episode Thank God It's Friday... Again.

Kind of art fail on this one, I feel. It worked in my head... Nathan reaching for his phone and hence almost falling off the bed, Duke grabbing him by the butt to keep him in...
