    Summary

    She needed to know about the man, not because he had made it possible to leave the city with its hateful lies and even more hateful and painful memories, but because he sounded like such a complicated person.

    Summary

    England. 1812.

    The Stark family, disinherited by circumstance, come to a quiet village in Devon to grieve the passing of Ned and to rebuild their life upon nothing but two hundred pounds per annum. However. With a young woman whose taste for knights fades when faced with a Byronic anti-hero, a solemn-eyed reverend who may never love anything more than books, a guilt-struck lord who does terrible things for the greatest of causes, and a young and strangely whiskerless lieutenant who, unknown to his dashing major, is not as he seems, how could anyone even consider the village to be boring?

    A tale of war, pic-nics, barouche-landaus, Spaniards, smuggling, shipwrecks, Byronic poetry, gossip, and, above all, romance.

    Summary

    A cruel betrayal has since turned Lord Ren into one of London's most notorious rakes. Contenting himself to a life of debauchery, the Earl of Alderaan has long been viewed by marriageable society as a lost cause. Yet a chance encounter with an orphaned pickpocket proves that love may be found in the most unexpected of places, and that it is never too late to repair a broken heart.

    [excerpt]:
    "She looks smart and quick, Ren. If anyone could do it, I would bet on you."

    Ren laughed, the sound of it slightly harsh and foreign. "What, you would have me teach her how to be a scullery maid?"

    Hux shook his head. "Of course not. Perhaps you could introduce her to the ways of the gentry. Work to improve her manner and her dress. With your guidance, and the resources at your disposal, I wouldn't be surprised if you could transform this pickpocket into a lady."

    Ren snorted. "Yes. She is the model of a docile, educated and refined woman."

    "You have no desire to bed her. Perhaps an interaction with the fairer sex without such distractions would make you appreciate them in a different manner."

    Hux, ever the strategist, dared him with a gleam in his eyes. "Unless you're not up to the challenge."

    Summary

    "So I should call you Hermione Jean," she heard Harry say, pointing at one of the Hermiones and looking very confused, "and, Hermione, I call you Hermione? And Hermione Jean is you but from Voldemort's time, and she is his friend?"

    "Classmates," Hermione Jean quickly corrected.

    "Partners," Riddle re-corrected. Hermione Jean looked aggravated. Hermione looked sick. Harry's face hardened. "In the non-romantic sense," Riddle explained. "Although she's clearly attracted to me."

    Hermione Jean scoffed.

    Summary

    It's Assyrians like wolves on the fold, / Cohorts gleamin' in purple and gold — / Like the forest leaves after Autumn hath blown, / Who would've thought they'd wither?

    Or Alanis Morissette's "Ironic" as George Gordon, Lord Byron, might have written it. Sort of. If he'd been hanging out in clubs in the '90s ...

    Summary

    They say opposites attract, so what happens when a girl in the midst of an existential crisis comes face to face with the infamous Noah Steele, known for his hideously big ego and need for constant attention. Two lost, flawed souls learn valuable lessons from one another that eventually leads to a connection so deeply rooted, they could be each others end.

    This story shines light on the injustices of modern day society. It explores the concept of falling in love, and the struggles when you and that person may not be compatible.

    Summary

    A modern-day re-imagining of A Scandal in Bohemia with a few alterations, deeper character explorations, and the inclusion of that guy that Irene Adler married at the end of the story whom everyone seems to forget.

    In which Irene causes trouble (or may be in trouble), plans a wedding, and routinely steals men's clothing, all while evading her paranoid ex-boyfriend. Sherlock is reviled by emotions and love, but especially the notion that he might not be immune to either. Godfrey is the unknowing cause of this whole mess, Mycroft is Mycroft, and John knows that, in the end, it's all fine.

    Definitely an AU from s2e01 of Sherlock.
