The first one was my original SGA Harlequin, actually started before the original Harlequin challenge and never finished in spite of all isilya's efforts. I got through the arranged marriage bit but then I kinda lost steam without writing the conflict. And the second one is a medieval Vampires vs Werewolves MCR AU. I'm still sad about this one - I loved the premise (which was inspired by header spelunking back in the day) and it was so fun. I bit off more politics and warfare and action than I could chew with the plot, though.

"I would marry you--actually get married to you--we would be spouses--"
"Yes, yes, yes, holy matrimony, husband and husband, yes."
"And in return you would pay for all the medical care my mother needed."
"I think that's the point. Yes."
"So we would get married, and then I would, what, I would be your wife?"

Characters: Mama Way, Mikey Way
Gerard, the child of a forbidden love between vampire and werewolf, ascends the throne of werewolf clan Wajdra at the tender age of eleven. The political situation between the dwindling numbers of the werewolves and their ancient enemies, the vampires, is precarious at best, and when his vampire mother and brother retreat to Transylvania, the only one Gerard can truly trust is Frank, the little werewolf cub who swore himself Gerard's liegeman the very day that they met. Gerard and Frank are raised side-by-side in the castle in a political tinderbox, but as Gerard's coming-of-age approaches, a war between vampires and werewolves looms ever nearer, while humans encroaching on their territory threaten both with extinction.
