Seven Times Nasir and Agron Failed at Goat Farming, and Seven Times They Didn’t by aldiara (Agron/Nasir)
So after the war Agron and Nasir become goat farmers! This fic is utterly wonderful. It's charming and kind of funny and a little serious at times. I love how it's written, in these little snap-shots and moments that, put together, form a complete picture of their lives together and with their goats. It's all-around a wonderful, feel-good piece.
Tremble by Sami714 (Ilithyia/Lucretia, past Gaia/Lucretia)
I love how sensual this is. I love all of Lucretia's scheming and planning, even as she indulges her desires. I always thought the Lucretia and Ilithyia were terribly shippable in the show and this was exactly the sort of tone I thought this ship could/should have.
don't be chosen by sunflowerbright (Mira/Saxa)
Apparently, I'm really into the femslash in this fandom or something lol. I liked how sweet this was without being sappy; it felt very appropriate for the characters and their world/situation. I also like how, also diametrically, opposed this pairing is in feel to Ilithyia/Lucretia, despite the antagonistic similarities.
