Title: Fac Fortia et Patere
Fandom: Halo
Artist: danceswithgary
Media Link:  LJ I  DW  I  AO3 
Characters & Pairings: John-117, Cortana, Thomas Lasky, The Librarian, The Didact, Original Characters
Rating & Warnings: T, Spoilers/Spec for Halo 4 (See author's notes.), character death
Word Count: 51,000
Genre: Gen, Action/Adventure, Angst, AU
Summary: Cortana's fighting rampancy, the Master Chief is fighting a new enemy, and, of course, it's up to them to save the universe. Again.
Author's Notes: I started writing this fic back in February, before E3.  Although the E3 trailer is referenced, I didn't alter my story's plotlines to make it fit within what we saw (much). So, this is an AU based on the random spoilers, articles, trailers, books, that came out before E3. 

There are references from just about everything: The Fall of Reach, First Strike, Glasslands, the Forerunner Saga, Human Weakness, Connectivity, the terminals from Halo: CE Anniversary and Halo 3, the Forward Unto Dawn trailer and every game from CE to Reach. I did, however, make it "user friendly". If you haven't read the books, there should be enough background information to get you through. (Although, you probably should read Connectivity to make the most sense of this fic.)

Thank you goes to my beta for finding typos, not letting me slack off when I rushed through the ending of a chapter, applauded me when I nailed it out of the park and made sure that John and Cortana didn't go out of character.  Another huge thanks to danceswithgary for creating some epic artwork. My f-list deserves a ton of virtual goodies for having to read my non-stop posts about this fic ("Dudes, this story will never end!!!") and patriot_jackie deserves a special shout out for helping me out with last minute questions.

Author's Notes: THANK YOU to creepylicious  for the awesome artwork and fanmix!  A big huge thank you to my Scottish guru azure_horizon who answered countless questions with the utmost patience. Without her, Tarrant would be speaking like a surfer dude. Seriously.  An enormous, extra huge thank you (and a future package of cinnamon rolls, LOL) goes to manniness  who has been my cheerleader, beta, and English to Outlandish translator. Without her, the ending would have been rubbish. You, as always, Dude, totally rock!

There are some Outlandish words created by the amazingly talented manniness  that can be found here

Title: A Most Precious Treasure
Authors: [info]yappichick and [info]manniness 
Artist: [info]oparu
Word Count: 41,000
Fandom: Tangled
Characters: Rapunzel, Eugene, King, Queen, Pascal, Maximus, Hookhand, and a couple of OCs
Pairings: Rapunzel/Eugene (Of course)
Rating: PG/K+
Warnings: Takes place after the movie
Summary: The past three years have been the best. Well, OK, maybe that's a matter of opinion. Rapunzel is becoming the princess everyone hoped she would be and Eugene... um, Eugene is still hanging around. And he has a very important question to ask her... if only he could just get it out! Between slightly disapproving parents, a kingdom rife with gossip over who the princess' future husband will be, royal duties, royal disasters, villains and monsters, can you blame a guy for hesitating?
Author's notes: (YappiChick) First of all, a huge thanks goes to my beta-turned-co-author, [info]manniness .  This whole story started with a plot bunny from her, so THANK YOU, DUDE!  Second of all, a BIG thanks goes [info]oparu for the awesome book cover! Yay!  And finally, a gigantic thanks goes to my f-list (especially [info]just_a_dram  whose enthusiasm was so incredibly helpful) for listening to me make post after post after post about this fic.
