Dub-con, minor character deathSummary:
Ever since Jared Padalecki's home and village were saved from the advancing enemy Hordes when he was a child, he has dreamed of joining the Bevian Order of the Knighthood. His dream comes true when he is granted admission to the training academy for the Knighthood. He is suddenly thrust into a world where everything is unfamiliar, the customs are strange, formal and uncomfortable and the only familiar face is his somewhat immature childhood friend and fellow postulant, Chad Murray.
The head of the academy, Preceptor Morgan, assigns Jensen Ackles to be his Pedagogue and partner in training. The beginning days of their partnership are rough, and Jared sometimes believes that perhaps he is not suited for the Knighthood after all. Slowly, a mutual bond develops as Jensen trains Jared in the mystical and magical ways of the Knighthood, but the physical intimacy which is intrinsic in the partnerships between mentor and student is intensely uncomfortable for Jared.
As he eventually begins to trust Jensen as more than just a teacher, there is a crisis at the Academy. A mystical artifact of great power has been stolen from the sacred vault. Jensen believes he knows who did it and thus begins an epic confrontation between Jensen and Jared and two people that Jared is shocked to discover as the perpetrators of the crime. Will Jensen and Jared recover the artifact? Will they survive the confrontation? Most importantly, will they allow themselves to become true partners in the Knighthood in every sense of the word?Essene's A/N:
This fic would never have been written if it weren't for allegraconbrio
. She provided support and co-wrote when it mattered the most. This fic would never have been written without her. gblvr
wielded the pointy beta stick and has an infinite amount of patience. Every writer should be so lucky to have a beta like this. Thank you to the mods for the hard work behind the scenes. I was awed to find that 2 wonderful artists, laurel_less
, chose to bring my fic to life. Thank you to all my cheerleaders, especially ewlyn
. Finally, this is dedicated to my darling dancetomato
for saying, “But it's really good
Medieval Space Knights fic!”
Liberties have been taken with the Hours observed by monks. Well, lots of liberties are taken with monastery life. No offense is intended to any specific religion. Basically this is all made up.
Huge amounts of my world building are due to the influence of the following authors: David Eddings, Orson Scott Card, and Anne McAffrey.
The thing I'm proudest of? Figuring out how to do the nifty hovering footnotes
. Don't click them, just hover over them and poof! There they are, like magic!sillyshy
