    Summary

    I always find an excuse to make a ballet AU. Kaneki Ken, a late starter with some genetic disadvantages makes it through the Tokyo Ballet's auditions, and is hired! In a company separated by two main cliques, he finds his circle with former freelancer starting at the bottom, Nishiki, conflicted between dance life and actual life Touka, academy student Hinami, and artistic director Yoshimura. The other clique, more in tune with executive director and more often than not, unofficial artistic director number 2, Kureo Mado's work and expectations, consists of Akira, Tokyo Ballet School valedictorian, perfectionist Amon, and former "problem child" of the Tokyo Ballet School Juuzou. While holding themselves to the standard of professional dancers, these talented youth make it through the struggles of their personal lives.

    Summary

    Louis is about to say no. About to politely decline, even though the shock of actually being considered for such a role is making him slightly dizzy. He can’t accept. He won’t accept.

    “We accept.” Harry grins, dimple popping in his cheek, a hand coming to rest lightly at the small of Louis’ back. Which, odd. “Of course, we accept. Thank you so much for asking us, Madam.” He bows his head a little and Madam Charee all but preens in delight at his politeness.

     

    After completing his prestigious dance training overseas, Harry returns to England to begin teaching in one of London's elite ballet schools. Only, certain dancers aren't too happy to have him suddenly on board. Or his well-fitted lycra uniform. Throw in some unusual dynamics, tense elevation demonstrations and an unlikely dance partnership, and you've got yourself a pretty interesting edition of Matthew Bourne's 'Swan Lake'.

    Or the one where Harry is the new ballet teacher, despite him being younger than everyone in his class, and Louis is less than impressed by his inescapable talent. They sort themselves out eventually.

    Summary

    I said as soon as I came to the American Ballet Academy that I wasn't going to be distracted. I'll try my best to keep that promise. If only he wasn't so mesmerizing it wouldn't be such a challenge for me... But then I was stuck with him so everything just became a clusterfuck.

    Summary

    "You’re still working on that?” asked Greg motioning towards the comic book pages John held between both hands.

    “Yeah... I have to work on movement apparently, so i’m gonna go watch ballet practice starting tomorrow.”

    “Ballet? Really?” Greg raised his eyebrows, surprised. “Well... yeah I guess it was about time captain Watson brought another girlfriend along eh?”

    John laughed “I’m not going to seduce anyone Greg! I’m just gonna go sketch them dancing and try to come up with ways to draw movement for my comic book.”

    “Mhmm mhmm. Let me know how that goes eh cap?” he winked.

    Summary

    Emma is a 17-year-old ballet dancer in Cora Mills' dance company, who is dancing the lead in Swan Lake opposite 18-year-old Regina's fiance, Daniel, all while harboring a secret crush on the brunette.

    Regina has a reputation as a vindictive, evil bitch, but Emma’s the only one who can see her true nature, and the emotional abuse she suffers at the hands of her mother.

    Emma’s a talented dancer with an overbearing stage mother, and as the production goes on, Emma begins to fall into some potentially dangerous self-destructive behaviour, and Regina is the only one who seems to notice or care.

    The two strike up a friendship that stems from mutual understanding and begins to grow into more.

    Summary

    "Maybe," he started to think as months went by, "Maybe there is a reason lumberjacks don’t play princes in ballet recitals, after all."

    One afternoon, after practice, he remained in the empty classroom after hours, sitting in an angleand looking pensively at his shoes. He drew patterns on the floor with his index finger, small patterns of fire on the woodboards of the dance class. The light shifted, at some point, and Garrett looked up to see a small, familiar silhouette standing backlit in front of him. A hand reached out for him, and Bethany’s eyes shone from between two thick curtains of wet hair. The little sister who dragged him into this world on pointe, who cried in his arm about the blood in her shoes, who taught him the weight of a dream, and who - as he was sinking - was soaring, blossoming like a rose in bloom, smiled one of her small, determined, angelic smiles at him.

    “Let’s go home, brother,” she said. “We have a lot of practicing to do.”

    Summary

    Dean was packing up when he heard a pair of shoes knocking against the hardwood floor. He turned around, smiling. “Hey, Cas, how was—?”

    The smile immediately lifted like a bad carpet stain when he caught sight of his friend (boyfriend?). Instead of his usual tank top and jeans, he was wearing a dress.

    Dean’s not one to enforce gender normalcies—obviously, coming from a guy who runs around in ball-hugging tights three times a week—but this was far from normal. It wasn’t a kaftan or a toga—finding out Cas was some aspirant frat boy, that would show some semblance to normal.

    No, Cas was wearing a dress dress. The kind that was pink with frills puffing out at the bottom. Worst of all, he looked miserable.

    Or the one where Cas saves Dean and both their worlds are forever changed.
