    Summary

    1943. Under the German Occupation Paris is a city blacked-out at night, and dark even on the sunniest days. The rest of France fares no better.

    Andy Sachs and her friends came to Paris in 1938, during the last peaceful fall that the City of Light would know for five years. Several years on, their stay can no longer be termed a 'working vacation.' Andy's begun to see things as they are, instead of the way she'd like them to be, and she's realized that she should've become angry quite some time ago.

    Miranda Priestly came to France in 1918, just after the previous war, and what she rebuilt from ruin is under threat of destruction yet again. She's been aware and angry for a long time, and all the while she's been putting that anger to use. Miranda is someone that the Nazis both hate and fear but whom they dare not attempt to harm, not overtly, anyway.

    Andy's heard of Miranda, but just a mention, and she never guessed at the time what that mention would one day spur into existence.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned; scorning two is a really bad idea.

    Summary

    Pirate AU.

    Basically I’ve turned the dwarves Welsh and Bilbo English, I’ve swapped out the Tudors with the Tooks, there’s prejudice and mocking and spouted pedigrees and general butchering of the Welsh language and cargo ships in the Bristol channel, and Bard is an actual, y’know, bard who falls foul of the latest Poor Laws, and the Elves are actually South Walians who’ve been pretty much completely Anglicised, which explains why Thorin’s lot, who’re North Walian, dislike them so damn much, and somewhere in all of this a romance is sparked between two captains.

    Abandon all hope, ye who enter here, as even the author isn't entirely sure where the tide will take us.

    Summary

    The crown rests heavy on top of his head, eight pounds of gold encrusted with emeralds and rubies and a thousand tons of responsibility and duty. He can feel its edge digging painfully into the skin of his forehead, can already sense some of his curls getting hopelessly tangled around the prongs. He forces himself to hold still, understanding the importance and uniqueness of this moment.

    He is the first ever king not descended from royal blood. The first king to usurp the previous before his death, and banish him for crimes of inhumanity performed against his people. He is twenty-two years old, and the streets whisper his name.

    “Bellamy Blake,” Marcus Kane, his mentor and first advisor, intones, “King of Polis, Lord of the Stars and Protector of the Earth, you may rise.”
