    Summary

    RCIJ 2016 gift for notalwayslate!

    "It was old, that much was certain, and in fair condition for its age. The fraying on the cloth cover was minimal, there were no signs of dog-eared pages, and the binding seemed solid... But this title was entirely unknown to him, and there didn’t appear to be an author listed anywhere, which he found bizarre. It would be a risky buy, even for a collector, if no one would be able to identify what it was or who wrote it or when. It was an oddity, nothing more. In other words, it was worthless. But it was hers..."

    The residents of the sleepy town of Storybrooke, Maine have grown accustomed to their odd little librarian, Belle French, spending her days with her nose buried in a book. To the average passerby, they seem a never-ending stream, with new ones cropping up every other day or so, but to the close observer, there is one particular book that makes a frequent reappearance in her lineup. Non-magical Storybrooke AU.

    Original prompt: "The book wasn't worth stealing."

    Summary

    When Remus Lupin lies to his co-workers about having a long-term boyfriend, he takes drastic action. Only hiring an escort as attractive as Sirius Black might have been the worst idea in the world. Especially when Sirius is so good at pretending to be in love. Because it's just pretending...isn't it?

    Summary

    A non-magical AU where the boys meet and learn to live together at Aglionby. No magic, no dreaming, no psychics. Focuses on Adam primarily and tells the slow-burning story of his relationship with the other boys. You would think that this would be happier... *evil laughter* This is my first work, so I'm sorry if this summary is kinda lame.

    Summary

    "Anyone who met Marinette Dupain-Cheng would say that she was a sweet girl, who smiled at strangers on the way to school and helped her parents in the bakery.
    Right now, Paris was no place for a sweet girl. "

    The once-beautiful city of Paris is darkened by a crime ring-the Akumas, lead by a man only known as Hawkmoth. Marinette is tired of the constant fear and, though she's terrified, goes out and does something about it, behind the law's back.
    Ladybug is a mystery to most. Some say she's the hero the city needs. But some prefer the term 'vigilante'.

    Summary

    Jake Stone has never asked for much, but always longed for a lot. Cassandra Cillian faces the looming threat of death, and struggles to find a reason to live at all in a world so soon to slip away. Ezekiel is sent to live with a new foster mother, Eve Baird, but he doesn't expect to be there long. He doesn't expect to finally stop running, and he certainly didn't expect to fall in love with two people at the same time.

    And none of them expected to help each other find what they'd each been looking for their whole lives.

    Summary

    Inside were instruments as far as his eyes could see. Guitars stood on foam stands, price tags spinning with the air inside, the plastic glare flitting back at Adam like flashes. Violins were on racks, displayed on the walls. There was a magazine stand full of tutorials and chord lessons by the empty counter. There was a drum kit, a grand piano, stacks of keyboards, a harp, chimes.

    The store struck Adam as out of place, and he looked around the strip of dusty, buttery environment to make sure of this. Sham stores selling cheese and souvenir stands selling cheap and breakable things littered the strip, and the looming building of Lynch Lyric seemed too rich, a diamond in the rough.

    -----
    An AU where Adam's still trying to get out of his situation and the Lynches own a music store.

    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

    Seriously, it couldn't be that hard. All Lavinia and Jace had to do was find a nice, quiet place to live until people stopped trying shoot Jace in the head and stomp his guts out. Naturally, they were attracted to the house in the neighborhood where nothing is normal and law enforcement is non-existent. Gang wars between people who think they are dragons, an albino man with a pet lion, and hoards of giant rats all run rampant, with only a self-proclaimed angel and her dad keeping them at bay.

    Or: a series of inter-connected shorts set in a distinctly non-magical setting featuring a variety of named characters in the Magic universe.

    Summary

    possible subtitle: and other reasons The Iron Bull is no longer allowed to suggest titles for his films

    In which Dorian is just getting used to his new life in Ferelden, when he discovers that his upstairs neighbour is somebody he knows.

    And by knows he means recognises from the movies, and by movies he means porn, and by recognises he means has had a slight obsession with since Rilienus taught him the twin joys of proxy servers and sites that charge their subscription to your credit card under names like ART FILMS, INC.

    (also: in which Halward is an asshole, as always, Rilienus is kinda a jerk, Felix remains perfect because Felix, and Sera is the mystical goddess who grad students pray to when they want free leftover sandwiches to turn up)

    Summary

    After moving into his new building, Sirius is fairly sure the helpful bloke he met outside the lobby is his favourite author, R.J. Lupin--the notoriously shy celebrity. It also doesn't help that the stranger is unbelievably sweet and ridiculously good looking. Sirius wants to get to know him, but isn't sure how to do any of it without making an arse of himself. Luckily, in the end, Remus doesn't seem to mind so much.
