    Summary

    Pietro runs ahead of the hunt, never astride a horse, for what horse could be as fast as his own legs? He can race past a stag, grab it’s antlers, wrestle it into the ground before any man has his gun aimed. He can catch ducks and doves from the air, he races the hounds and past them, does dancing acrobatics that none can match and his strength and his speed are seen as no more than his right, for he is a man.

    Wanda is a woman, and so she goes to the women’s meetings. When the women with powers are asked to come forward, to show their gifts, Wanda holds a cataclysm in her hands and they cower.

    Summary

    A.K.A. The Melodramatic Kabby Regency Romance AU You Never Knew You Needed Until Now

    ‘Living in her late husband’s vast estate with only her daughter Clarke for company, Abby Griffin is a mother pulled in two directions – caught between the desire to see her daughter happily wed and the fear of losing the companionship of the child who means more to her than anything in the world.

    When the wealthy young Blake siblings move into town, Abby sees her daughter find a chance for happiness, even love...who could imagine that a friendship with their seemingly charming new neighbours might spell disaster for them all?

    But Clarke is not the only one in danger of letting her heart run away with her, as circumstances bring Abby closer than ever to her old friend Colonel Kane; a man for whom she holds a tentative and growing regard, and who may now be her only hope in her greatest hour of need.’

    Featuring: Gossip! Ballrooms! Scandal! Duels! Incredibly repressed sexual tension! And every other regency romance cliché you could wish for!

    Summary

    What began as two lonely souls finding a clever way out of their social and familial obligations soon turned into something else—something inexplicable, inevitable, and irrevocable.

    Inspired by this softkinks prompt: Young rich/aristocratic hux and kylo are constantly pressured by their families to attend high society parties, balls etc.. they don't know each other, but always see the other suffering through a tedious date. society is pressuring them into heterosexual 'norms' but after finally meeting/talking just once, sneaking out into a moonlit garden, they insist on only attending events with each other from then on, just to piss off the community at first, but then because they cant stand to be apart.

    Summary

    If Stiles weren't mistaken, he would almost say King Hale was amused. My, he might even be smiling, if the uneven line that's broken his stiff mouth could be called that.

    But that was absurd. Kings don't smile. Especially King Hale.

    Summary

    “Tell me what you want.” Viktor tries. “Anything, please tell me.”

    Yuuri swallows, and his expression changes. Softens sadly, transmutes like the quiet decay of fruit.

    “I want not to be jealous of you.” He says. “Just for a day. Or even a second.”

    Viktor blinks, stunned.

    OR, in which Yuuri’s idolisation of Viktor is a little less idolised and a little more realistic, they’re both poets in the twentieth century, and it’s Viktor’s turn to pine

    Summary

    "Dissatisfied, Yuuri retreated to his bedroom.

    He realized too late that he had come up too early, as Viktor was still dressing — or rather, undressing — for bed. He was sitting on the edge of the bed, in only his smallclothes, hair loose about his shoulders. His comb was in his hand.

    Their eyes met, and Yuuri flushed and stared intently at the carpet in the hopes that it might swallow him up. Viktor was as white as the moon, as finely shaped as any statue; only the splotchy flush spreading across his chest betrayed him as more human than divine."
