    Summary

    Bucky leads a charmed life. It’s not often that a young man gets to live the life of a royal without so much as a birthright to a title. However, life in the palace isn’t always such a blessing. Sometimes when the rooms go dark, secrets that are so carefully hidden make their way into the light. Sometimes his charmed life is more of a curse.

    That is, until Captain Rogers shows up to another society ball and turns Bucky’s whole world upside down.

    Summary

    A Regency-flavoured, arranged-marriage Washington/Hamilton slow burn AU born out of an extended thought experiment about kinship and matriarchy. Yeah, I don't know either. But please remember why we're here: Washington in a frock coat, on a giant white horse, sexually charged waltzes, and sniping!

    CAVEAT EMPTOR: Updates every couple of days. The world-building here is fairly extensive, the misandry very real, and the burn exceedingly slow. If that doesn't sound appealing, this fic probably isn't for you.

    Summary

    Lady Sansa Stark is the orphaned last offspring of the late Duke and Duchess of Winterfell. Her family executed for inciting a revolution against the new, young King, she was allowed to live when she recanted but failed to convince her family to follow suit. Sent to live with her aunt, the Duchess of the Vale, she fell into despair for now she was a social pariah. Stripped of title, inheritance, lands and considered unmarriageable as the daughter of a traitor. Dancing with a dark stranger at a ball for the Duchess's son, she was cast out to live with her drunken and gambling uncle in Riverrun.

    One night, her uncle in a desperate attempt to win back his estate from gambling, bets and loses his niece to two unsavory men of the local gentry. That is, until an unlikely savior appears in the form of the new (and very wealthy) Marquess of Harrenhal, notorious for his swift rise into the aristocracy by means of smuggling, gambling and becoming the top financial advisor to the Royal Family.

    Fantasy/Romance AU using the18th Century Georgian/Regency period as a backdrop (but not strictly adhered to). Elements of old Celtic/Gaelic used to describe Northerners as Southerners are similar to that of British aristocracy.

    Summary

    With both parents passed away and a younger sister to support, Bellamy Blake may not have drawn the easiest lot in life. But he had a plan: Rise through the ranks of the Royal Navy, find a good husband for his sister, make Lieutenant or maybe even Captain, and keep sailing and fighting until he died at sea. What he had not planned for was suddenly inheriting a title, complete with lands and fortune.
    Instead of simply trying to stay alive long enough to get Octavia settled comfortably, now he had to figure out how to run an estate, bring his sister out into society while protecting her from rakes and fortune hunters, and remember his manners around one stubborn, haughty, irresistible Lady Clarke Griffin, Daughter of the Earl of Arkton – and very soon the bane of his existence.

    Summary

    A novel written by a Lady

    ~ It is a Galactic truth that a single dark knight of the First Order with both fortune and family connexions… must be in want of a wife. ~

    ----------------

    Miss Rey Kenobi is the orphaned daughter of a respectable gentleman in the county of Jakkushire.

    She faces an uncertain future due to the family estate being entailed away from the female line upon the death of her aging grandfather, Sir Obiwan Kenobi. With no dowry or brothers, she has only her good name to recommend her. Rey is an independent young lady who is intent on remaining unmarried and becoming a Jedi. This greatly vexes her aunt Mrs Kanata, who would prefer to see her niece well-settled with an eligible husband.

    Rey’s provincial life starts to unravel at an opulent society ball when she meets the handsome and “forceful” Mr Ren of Coruscant, who takes a fancy to the ‘spirited’ Miss Kenobi.

    Star Wars AU set in the Regency Period Drama style of Jane Austen

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that Levi Ackerman's good opinion once lost is lost forever. It is also a truth universally acknowledged that Eren Jaeger is most certainly not in love, and never could be in love, with Levi Ackerman. And it is yet another truth universally acknowledged, that unfortunately for Eren, he is so very, very wrong about this.

    Captain Jamie Benn had only known Lord Seguin for mere minutes before he proposed the impossible, yet the only thing that made sense: that they put an end to the various rumours that surrounded them both by marrying each other.

    Summary

    Louis Tomlinson is the caretaker of an estate that is not truly his, and when his Uncle calls upon him to take it back, Louis knows he will soon be out on the streets with four overly zealous sisters to care for. His only solution: wed the eldest two off and pray for the best. When an even better solution unexpectedly presents itself in the form of the charming Mr. Styles, Louis is faced with a difficult choice. But as with all things in the regency era, reputation very well may threaten to outweigh the fleeting matters of his heart.
