39 The Blacksmith & His Wife » This is a totally AU Cathry story which takes place in the French countryside and includes a bit more of the historical accounts than the show. It looks at what their life may have looked like if their fortunes had been different. Rated T for content that is realistic but not graphic. **To my dear sweet friend who inspired this epilogue, peace and healing in a difficult time...**

4 The Tremors of Tragedy A one-shot that takes place after about a year and Catherine and Henry's marriage, and considers the age old question of whether or not he ever cared for her. Some possible flashbacks from both of their pasts as well and a nod to the fascination and liberal application of poisons during the Renaissance. Enjoy!

4Echoes in Time What do you do when an app gets stuck in writer mode? You write a fic of course. All things considered our favorite Queens and Kings seem to run into much of the same situations again and again. This is (will be) a collection of one shots that looks at some of the scenarios they may have come across over the years.

7Her Prince Charming » A collection of one shots of Catherine & Henry over the years, mostly ending in a moment of understanding and affection, sometimes perhaps not. This will be a multi chapter fic, but updated somewhat sporadically. If you have ideas for prompts pass them on and they will be considered. Rated T to cover content in all chapters. **Life has been hectic, but Chapter 3 is up!**

29 Henry's Problem » The thoughts and desires of King Henry seem to be ever changing, ever roaming. Was there anything, anyone that could tame them? What would Queen Catherine think and how would she respond? What of the children? Rated T but nothing graphic as usual. **And the end of this journey has arrived. Thank you to all who have joined with me in this process and stuck with me till the end.**

4The Beginning in the End A continuation of the scene in "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars" after Delenn leaves the studio. This is a one shot that popped into my head while traveling and which I transcribed from my nearly-illegible-thanks-to-the-words-pouring-out-too-fast writing. Many thanks to my ghost beta who wishes to remain anonymous. Rating based on an allusion to a somewhat mature topic.

52 Till Death Do Us Part » A continuation of "Stay with Me" where Catherine & Henry didn't go their separate ways in Dirty Laundry and instead fully reunited both publicly an in private. Rated T for safety. **It is with both sadness and relief that I finally name this fic complete. It has been a pleasure and an honor to go on this journey with all that have read and reviewed. Thank you to all, and enjoy!**

10 Four Times Mary Asked for Catherine's Advice & One Time She Didn't » Mary and Catherine have such chemistry and have been through so much that this piece just begged to be written. Title says it all, each chapter will be a standalone with updates coming as soon as my muse dictates them. Rating starting at K for safety, may change in later chapters.

2 Musings of a Queen Catherine de Medici was many things, but thoughtless and flighty was not one of them. This is one possible reflection that she may have considered during her years as Queen.

36 A Moment of Memories & Comfort » A series of snippets illuminating moments of tenderness between Catherine and Henry throughout their relationship. Each scenario has been built and contained so that it could fit within the canon of the show, but is not at this point in chronological order. *Thank you all for your support! At least for now this is done...but if you have any new ideas pass them on, and who knows...*

82 Stay With Me » An AU stemming from that tragic scene in "Dirty Laundry". Such a tender moment that could have changed the whole direction of Cathry never mind the show, and it deserved more. T rated except for Ch 11 & 21 which are M, from a cheeky Catherine, then a look back on her captivity - NOT in graphic detail. ** It's been a pleasure lads and lassies...an extra long chapter just for you! **

7 Four Times Catherine Bled, and One Time She Didn't » Title is pretty self explanatory…zeroing in on a few moments that may have may have happened between Catherine and Henry over the years…technically all Cathry, but not always happy times. Included sensitive topics, please take this into account before investing in the story.
