I write (and read) about women with agency.

You can also find me as wheel-of-fish on Tumblr, where I sometimes post drabbles and gifs and other generally useless things.

Made of Stone by Morrigan24601 reviews
Very loosely based around the proposal scene from Kay. Erik asks Christine for a marriage of convenience until his impending death, but things gradually unfold rather differently than expected. Future chapters will more than likely justify the rating.
