    Summary

    Desert Bluffs Preparatory Academy is a little strange—no one really enforces the dress code (although someone tries), the headmaster’s lost in cloud cuckooland, a botany student became a drug dealer while everyone was looking the other way, the “cool kids” are all somewhere between punkrock and prep, the English department’s clothes end up in everyone else’s possession, the same group of travelling workers shows up everywhere from the Renaissance faire to the strip club in town, and two of the teachers are plotting and planning to bring back the school’s reputation at any cost.

    But hey. There are worse lives to lead. And at the very least, “boring” is not a problem that they happen to have.

    Summary

    Voldemort was just supposed to be the bored necromancer who had a slightly creepy obsession with the undead. Scarred was just supposed to be a berserker--but things never quite work out that way.

    For one, he isn't a berserker. He's a bishop. For two, he isn't just anything--he's the renegade High Priest of Gryffindor. For three, well... let's just say Voldemort's slightly creepy obsession wasn't on the undead anymore.

    Glitches were so inconvenient.

    Summary

    Fit Bloke yanks the books from his hands harshly, unbalancing Merlin, making him have to stop himself from face planting by bracing a hand on the floor. Giving him a disgusted look, Fit Bloke sneers, “Get up, you look ridiculous,” before briskly walking away in the opposite direction, his leg connecting with Merlin’s shoulder and knocking him over again.

    “Prat,” Merlin says, collecting himself and getting up. Fit Bloke may be a prat, and an arse, but the view of his bum when he strutted away wasn’t bad at all. In fact, it was a very peachy bum, probably from footie....

    Summary

    Il était là. Comme un cauchemar qui prend vie, il était là. Vêtu d’un vieux sweat-shirt noir et d’un pantalon de jogging gris, il semblait à jamais greffé à son fauteuil bleu, les yeux collés à l’écran géant fixé au mur d’en face. La pièce empestait l’alcool et la sueur. Et quelque chose d’autre, quelque chose de sinistre, de glauque et d’oppressant. De suffocant.

    Summary

    Solavellan love story in a modern AU. Mostly real-world modern, but I decided to keep the DA races and languages for flavor, and I made up a country/continent as well as some other junk. I'm AU-ing kind of hard.

    Lucille "Lucy" Lavellan moved to a seaside town where she starts working at a cute bakery that is across the street from a library that oscillates between quiet study-hub and exciting party-hub. She makes new friends and develops feelings for a certain elf.

    I'm going in cold. I have some ideas of where this will go, but it's likely going to be long and exploratory and very slice-o-life-ish.

    Summary

    And maybe Teddy would enter the room after that, and tell her in his stupid mocking voice, that they had tricked her, and that she was so gullible - how could she have fallen for that? Because Teddy was not dead. He couldn’t be. They had just talked to each other this morning; had planned to see each other tonight. People didn’t just die like that.

    Except they did.

    Non-Magical AU.

    Summary

    Draco’s mouth falls open.

    He clutches his cookie and ignores the shower of crumbs littering his grey cashmere fingerless gloves.

    He can’t decide if he wants to fuck this girl or fight with her. Maybe both? Maybe at the same time?

    “So—you’re upset,” he says with a nonchalant nod and discreet adjustment of his slightly too-tight khaki corduroys.

    She blinks at him, her expression alternating between indignation and incredulity and flat-out fury.

    He had been right about her being pretty beneath the intimidation tactics.
