    Summary

    "Years ago, when the circus first rolled into town Katsuki heard his first cannon fire. More importantly, he felt it. The distant quake shook him to his core, beckoned him. He sacrificed a dollar that week to get a front row seat, every night, to laugh and scream as the cannon rolled out to herald the start of the greatest show on earth.
    The next summer, the circus never came.
    It's been six years, but now, it's back."

    Welcome, welcome, one and all to the My Hero circus AU no one asked for, but for some reason I had to write. (Kiribaku-centric)

    Summary

    'The Greatest Showman' AU

    For the past five years, Le Cirque d’Akuma has been known by many to be “The Most Miraculous Show on Earth.” As son of the ringmaster, Adrien knew he would be joining the family business soon enough, and the time had come. What he did not expect was his father to announce retirement, and then immediately become the new ringmaster. The circus is far from fun and games, Adrien learns--especially when he finds himself entranced by the captivating, flying Ladybug…

    Summary

    This is my contribution to the 2018 CS Little Bang!
    Running away to join the circus is like - the biggest cliche ever, but it’s the only available solution to Emma Swan’s very immediate problem. Running from the cops and with a freshly broken heart, Emma just needs shelter, a job and a ride out of town. She never expected to stumble into a world of real magic complete with witches, werewolves and a trio of shape-shifting brothers. Beast-taming isn’t so hard when the “beasts” are really humans in disguise. Taming were-panther Killian Jones might just be another matter all together. But maybe a lost girl can find a home among the “circus freaks”.

    Mild warnings for: swearing, sexual innuendo, brief non-graphic descriptions of character/animal injury.

    Summary

    Fortunate favors the brave, and never helps a man who does not help himself- PT Barnum

    -or-

    The year is 1912. The blinding lights from the big top draw in a crowd intoxicated by the oddities within those red and white canvas walls. FP Jones stands center stage as his son waits in the wings with baited breath. From the tip of the tent to the cane in his father's hand: one day this life will belong to Jughead. It's a city of runaways, vandals, and societal outcasts. It's a world he grew up in. Before he can dwell too long on his thoughts, a voice like a crack of lightening cuts through the crowd.

    "Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls of all shapes and sizes. I welcome you, one and all, to the greatest show on earth."

    Summary

    Voltron Circus is just at the beginning of its journey, its inexperienced performers needing training, and its routine yet to be developed. Circuses are just beginning to gain notoriety, but will Voltron Circus be able to keep up with the competition? Will they be able to work together to create a show unlike any the public has seen? Pair those struggles with the fact that homosexuality is a crime and two boys with a blooming relationship that may just be snipped at the bud because of it.

    Summary

    Living in the twenty-first century has become a natural and comprehensible task, where social media thrives and just about everything is documented on television for viewers and reporters to pry and scrutinize. Life has become a rinse and repeat process for Park Jimin. He wakes up every morning, gets ready for his aerial classes, rushes back to his apartment to change in time for his university classes, and saunters back home to sleep. Everything has become a blur of dull and uneventful days; everything is boring.

    Until it’s not.

    Until Park Jimin auditions for his favorite circus from his childhood and makes it in. Until Park Jimin learns that under such a happy and chipper community of crew members, lies a deep, dark secret. One that not even the members of Circus Elysian dare explain. And it’s not like the fire artist Min Yoongi is helping his case much either.

    Summary

    Tom Riddle is a monster. Tom Riddle is a freak. Tom Riddle is a nobody. Nobody from birth, and nobody until death.

    That’s what the aristocrats told him. The classmates that tormented him, day in and day out. The Muggles that were supposed to protect him at the orphanage. His dirty blood. It’s what they all told him, but Tom Riddle has also never been good at doing what he’s told.

    Tom Riddle is a nobody. Tom Riddle is a visionary without shame and a craving for an audience. So, he’ll create an audience out of the spectacle of his freakishness.

    Summary

    Inspired by the Broadway show "Circus 1903". After I saw the acrobat act with the noticeable size difference between the two men performing it, my mind went straight to Sheith and would not let it go. So I found roles for almost everyone in the show and started plotting. Check this video out (at the 1:30 mark) for an idea of what icarists do.

    Shiro and Keith are getting by, working on the San Francisco docks and doing the occasional stunt for drinking money in the bars. Then a circus manager sees them avert an accident and tracks them down. He wants them in the Altea Circus.

    Summary

    Carlos has been fascinated with the circus since he was a child. The idea of putting so many different people on stage, to be admired and shown as unique individuals as opposed to being mocked, has always lit a fire in his heart. This passion was lit on a field trip in the third grade, and though initially he wanted to pursue science, all that was thrown out the window with the idea of becoming a ringmaster.

    Summary

    Growing up, Jungkook was never allowed to go near the circus, his parents wishing to keep him away from the life they lived as teens. But when he sneaks off with his best friend to watch it he finds himself head over heels for the talented aerialist, Park Jimin.

    Jimin, it would seem, notices Jungkook too. Drawn by the performer’s unnatural beauty, the freshly graduated teen finds himself pulled into the nomadic life of a troupe with secrets darker than he could have ever imagined.
