    Summary

    When Héctor has his first performance, Victoria of course brings Lefstebany with her. Lefstebany spends half her time at the Riveras anyway- what's so loco about coming to the first performance of the man who is basically her abuelo-in-law?

    When Héctor begins to play his guitar, Victoria sees the way his bony fingers shake. She sees how uncertain he is, how a century of being rejected for the thing he once loved has dampened his excitement for his art.

    Despite her usual disdain for such frivolous activities, she is all too happy to let Rosita pull her and Lefstebany into a dance. She understands how Héctor, this century-old skeleton trapped in the body of a twenty-one-year-old, feels. She understands being rejected for what and who she loves.

    -

    Victoria will not let Ernesto De la Cruz hurt anyone in her family again.

    Lefstebany, who has seen the hurt that the Riveras have suffered, will protect her adopted familia with everything she has.

    Ernesto De la Cruz is never seen in the Marketplace or near the Rivera casa again.

    Victoria is proud to give her novia credit for this.

    (Aka: Victoria and Lefstebany are the most badass lesbian aunts/granddaughters/skeletons EVER)

    Summary

    Al principio, había sido una buena idea.
    Aunque, para ser sinceros, llamarlo idea no sería muy exacto. Bielorrusia no había dejado que aquel pensamiento fugaz madurara lo bastante antes de ponerse en marcha.

    Summary

    “Far be it for me to suggest, but I can think of better ways for you two to resolve your tensions. And I think the root of the problem stems from the fact that you two both can, also.” Napoleon looked up, waiting to catch the result of his ambush on Illya’s face. “Though I know I venture my opinion at my own Peril.”

    The corner of his mouth quirks up, Napoleon clearly pleased with his own wit even though he does his best to hide his tally point against the edge of his glass.

    Illya’s mouth forms a thin line. He gets that it was meant to be a joke, but it is not funny. Nor are Napoleon’s other insinuations.

    “It’s ten in the morning, Napoleon,” Gaby protests. Too early for puns, or scotch.

    “Is it?”

    “Do you reach a point in your day when you stop drinking?”

    “Hmm. Do you reach a point in yours where you stop deflecting?”

    Summary

    Alpha Moriarty found out Mycroft's deepest secret: he's an Omega.
    For some reason all he did was get him his suppressant pills and tuck him in with a blanket... and invite him to a jazz concert.
    sadly the Jazz date had to be rescheduled...but business comes first
    Follows directly after Complex Like Math, Smooth like Jazz (and will make more sense if you read that first although there is a slight recap)

    Summary

    “Sometimes…” Eren started, taking his other pawn and bringing it two fields up from its starting position, “…sometimes I wonder if you’re really talking about the chess game. Pawn to f4.”

    Just a game of chess with no plot whatsoever. Canonverse.

    Summary

    His gaze is implacable, his fingers moving his remaining rook almost immediately, as if he knew she would get it- planned for it and his next move. Maybe he didn’t underestimate her after all.

    Sansa feels suddenly hot, her cheeks flushing at the compliment Stannis just paid her without saying a single word. She reaches for the hair tie on her wrist and sweeps her hair into a ponytail while she attempts to figure out if she can get him in check soon.

    Chess as flirting/foreplay? It’s more likely than you think.

    Summary

    Stiles slowly pulls in a mouthful of curly fries, dumbly focused on the task.
    ''It's weirdly homoerotic how you do this,'' muses Derek, eyeing him.
    Stiles chokes and Derek's lips curl up into an almost smile. It's so easy to get the reaction he wants from Stiles.
    ''Yeah, it's disgusting, Stilinski,'' says Jackson, looking at the boy with distaste.
    Derek turns to him, letting his eyebrows rise. ''And who asked you, Whittemore?''
    Jackson glances at him, surprised. ''I've just agreed with y-''
    ''No one cares,'' Derek interrupts him. ''Fuck off.''

    Summary

    He's been told the same lies his entire life. He's been told that people not like him, not like his family, are bad. Dangerous. Disgusting. He's internalized this -- hatred has become a part of him as much as the surname Malfoy and his pure blood. What if he realized he was one of the people he used to be repulsed by?

    Summary

    Inquisitor Kaaras Adaar battles demons and darkspawn for purpose and profit, and he seals Fade-Rifts in his sleep. He’s a formidable battlemage and principled leader. He gives most of his earned or acquired loot away to children and beggars. He’s never lost a chess game in his adult life and can easily keep up with even Dorian Pavus’ banter and snark. He’s seven-ish feet tall, only a bit gangly, relatively non-hideous—if one happens to prefer liberally freckled and unapologetically ginger Vashoth Qunari—and can involuntarily conduct small quantities of arcane lightning between his copper-plated horns without even trying.

    He’s also continually saving the world from millennia of its bewildering mistakes. He is not easily or ever cowed. So . . . why does the idea of confessing his powerful attraction and deepening feelings for the commander of the Inquisition’s military—or, Maker forbid, confessing them to the commander—frighten the bloody horns off him? Why is he increasingly certain that he’ll never be worthy enough?

    Summary

    I tried to fit in and I changed myself in every way you can imagine. I just wanted to be part of the game. And then I realized - well - I create the game.
    - Conchita Wurst

     

    Picks up right after the events of Violets, Violins, Violence. Maybe the hero's journey for Clarice Starling came to an end, but that doesn't mean that she was ever guaranteed a happy ending. Now, perhaps unwittingly, she's being pulled back into another chess game, with the stakes even higher than before. No one is exactly who they seem, and not even the chess pieces are black and white.
