    Summary

    High school. It's difficult enough to navigate on its own. Especially when you were quick-witted, bitterly sarcastic, and emotionally constipated with a bad case of verbal diarrhea. And yes she was aware of the inherent contradiction within that phrase.

    When Charlie moved to Beacon Hills after her father's death, she thought the worst she'd deal with was gossip, term papers, and her new best friend and across-the-street neighbor Lydia Martin lipsticking her to death in her quest to make Charlie socially acceptable. Actually Lydia had described it more as avoiding becoming a 'facepalm-inducing embarrassment'. But for a tiny town that was 90% forest with only one functional movie theater, there sure seemed to be a lot of people dying. There was something going on in Beacon Hills.

    Enter one Stiles Stilinski. He was a twitchy, sarcastic weirdo, and she definitely appreciated that in a person. He and his friend Scott McCall also happened to be at the center of every strange thing that was going on in this weird-ass town. It was one giant mystery. And she was going to figure out what it was. She just never expected to stop being scary and defensive long enough to start developing actual human feelings along the way.

    Summary

    The Muses are more than mythology.

    It is stories, legends, fairy tales and books that keep children believing in the Guardians, keeps their spirits alive in their hearts. But all books start with a blank page. All stories start with a spark, a hunch, an idea.

    Inspiration.

    With the ability to inspire at will, to manipulate thoughts and dreams of great and impossible things, the nine Muses are exceptionally important and exceptionally powerful. And this power does not go unnoticed.

    When the Muses are threatened by a dark entity hoping to harness their power, they must call upon the Guardians and their centuries-old alliance. Together they must learn more about this threat, and what can be done to stop it and keep the Guardians and Muses strong and alive.

    Meanwhile, Jack Frost, a Guardian of a few short months, is still up to his old tricks while trying to adjust to new responsibilities. Along the way he finds a new friend who could use some fun among the chaos that is about to erupt in her life. A life that was so meticulously planned out is turned upside down as fantasy becomes reality and imagination is no longer a safe place to escape to.

Their arrangement backfires when they realise they’ve fallen for their own trick, and aren’t pretending anymore…

    A story about amusing Christmas presents, dates on skates, strategically placed mistletoe, and revelations of secrets long kept, as well as friendship, finding yourself, and a little bit of love.

    Summary

    There’s a reason why Sherlock doesn’t travel on the Underground, and it’s not because he’s a snob. John learns the reason the hard way. Although, given the conclusion, maybe this one Tube ride wasn’t such a bad idea.
    Inspired by Sherlock’s line in Many Happy Returns: “Of course I’m going to miss dinner – there’ll be people.”

    Summary

    "The coat had definitely seen better days. Certainly, those days were long past, and Bard’s coat had been ragged for a number of years now, but admittedly this time...it looked like it was going to be beyond even Sigrid’s help.

    'Does the new King of Dale not take a covering for himself?'”

    In which a gift is given, accepted, and repaid in full. Bowmen are notorious for keeping the playing field even.

    Set a few years post the S6 and S2 midseason finales of TVD and TO. Caroline's been wandering around the continental U.S. and she finally makes her way to NOLA. She runs into Kol first.

    "Klaus finds himself blinking down at his phone for an embarrassingly long length of time while he filters his brother's usual nonsense and the pertinent information sinks into his brain. Caroline is in New Orleans." It's an average Wednesday in NOLA until it isn't. Klaus is thwarted first by his brother, and then by Bonnie Bennett. But he will find Caroline, and he will figure out what she's doing here (unless she finds him first).

    Summary

    “Whoa, whoa,” a low voice cried. The horse snorted, and Billy heard the soft thud of hooves hitting the earth alarmingly close to where he was standing. It was so close, he could feel the muffled reverberations in the packed earth. Then, “Oh my God, are you okay?”

    No, he wanted to shout. He was trembling all over, knees actually shaking. Billy slowly dropped his arm and dared to blink open his eyes. He looked up—and up—and up—until he met those blue eyes, just as open and bright as the whole damned Big Sky country in a face that was, oh God yes, really incredibly handsome. The sharp words dried on his tongue; the fear drained away. He could actually feel his brain derail. Holy crap, that was one hot cowboy. “Um,” Billy said stupidly. “I. Yeah. I think…yeah. Hi.”

    “I am so sorry,” Hot Cowboy said. “I am so, so unbelievably sorry.”

    “No, hey, it’s fine,” Billy quickly assured him. “No harm done. Um. Nice horse.”

    Nice horse? He fought the urge to cover his face with his hands.
