    Summary

    England, 1812. For as long as he can remember, Levi Ackerman works as a physician in the dozy little town of Brighthampton. Together with his ward Eren Jaeger he's living a withdrawn, calm life, whose constant routine is only interrupted by occasional salons and evening societies. It is a life that has lost its charm long ago, yet is held up due to resignation and a certain sence of duty. When the mansion of Stenton Park is rented for the summer to two gentlemen from London, it's already predictable that Levi's life will change in a not too distant future...

    Summary

    Summary

    Roderick Gold is about to complete his revenge on the Jones family by inheriting the family fortune and estate, but to his surprise there is one late acquisition: Jones was guardian to a young woman, and that guardianship now falls to Gold. Determined at first to marry her and make absolutely sure all of the Jones assets are under his control, he soon discovers that there is much more to Bella French than meets the eye.

    Belle French values nothing so much as her independence, and would far rather die an old maid than lose even a moment of freedom. Her new guardian is intriguing, though, and the more she learns about his past the more questions she has. His reputation doesn't quite match her own observations, and while she would love to uncover the mystery that is Roderick Gold, she must be very cautious lest she reveal her own secrets and ruin her own plans.

    Summary

    Regency AU in which Mycroft Holmes has given up a promising military career to take up his duties as eldest son and heir of the late Earl of Halsbury and in which his younger brother's world has suffered serious damage from the family tragedy. Appearances must be upheld nevertheless, an elegant facade must be maintained and scandals must be avoided at all cost. A convenient marriage to the lovely Lady Harcourt therefore seems a logical choice, but the appearance of a handsome Bow Street Runner makes him wonder whether he should listen to logic when life offers him what he has always wanted.

    However, sense and sensibility are not always in disagreement, no matter what the poets say, and Mycroft Holmes is forced to consider the possibility that the one thing he has always thought he wanted might not be what he has truly been looking for.

    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

    Terrified at the prospect of humiliating himself in front of the ton and completely ruining his first season with his crippling shyness, omega Stiles Stilinski does the only thing he can; he invents a sweetheart away at war. A completely fictitious and utterly gorgeous captain, a gentlemanly paragon of romance and adoration, an alpha with whom Stiles spends years "exchanging" letters.

    Years later, an angry, war-battered Derek Hale shows up at Stiles's door. He's no gentleman, and vehemently denies the existence of anything remotely resembling romance. He's received every last letter and has come to collect on Stiles's promises of home and marriage, no matter what.

    Dearest Diary,
    Two events of note occurred today. First, I realized that Peeta Mellark, who just yesterday I considered an ally and possible friend, is an irredeemable prat. Second, I became betrothed to him.

    London, 1793. After a life spent on her family’s country estate, the time has finally come for the Everdeen sisters to be introduced to the London elite. Katniss will do anything to ensure her younger sister does not fall into the wrong hands, but surrounded by strangers, she has no way of judging Prim’s many suitors’ intentions. Enter Peeta Mellark, the youngest brother of the Earl of Panem and a longtime fixture of the ton. He seems the perfect ally, but Peeta has intentions of his own, and Katniss’ spinsterhood may not be as safe as she believes.

    Summary

    Duchess Maranel Thrask is one of the few remaining nobles of her nation Horuset following its capitulation to its southern neighbor, Dromund Kaas, at the end of the King’s War. Upon her parents’ untimely death, the child duchess was sent to live with her Kaasian uncle, Duke Vikram Baras, her fortune frozen and her resource-rich lands overseen by Horusetian loyalists until she reaches the age of majority, twenty-five.

    Duke Baras is desperate to lay hands on his niece’s fortune and lands. The only way around the will is marriage, which would transfer the duchess’s property to her husband. Baras recruits Malavai Quinn, the new Earl of Balmorra, who inherited the title and his father’s estate-crippling gambling debts to Baras. Lord Quinn reluctantly agrees to woo Maranel and entail the Thrask estate on Baras in exchange for forgiving the debt.

    As her twenty-fourth birthday passes, Maranel fights to protect herself from Baras while dealing with her growing feelings for the earl. Quinn, falls for the quick-witted duchess and must choose between the woman he loves and duty to his family. At the center of it all is Duke Baras, who manipulates a conspiracy beyond what either Maranel or Quinn could ever suspect.
