    Summary

    "Hesitant, Emilia reached up to stroke the brilliant scarlet rose in her hair, wincing slightly as one finger got caught on a sharp thorn. The blood, hidden in the flower's velvet petals, welled up in a thin red line as she placed her finger delicately in her mouth to quell the faint flow of that red tide. There is danger hidden in beauty, she thought suddenly, incongruously, and thorns sharp and cutting ensconced in flowers of love."

    The story of Othello and Desdemona is one of passion burning too strong-- of idle thoughts twisting into suspicions wild and imaginations raging with jealousy and fervent desire to be taken at one's chaste word. The story of Emilia and Iago is a quieter tale, of sinister machinations and a shared madness that sinks its thorny claws in deep and drags hapless souls together into a mire that is either love, or insanity, or hatred...or everything of nothing first created.

    Summary

    Raleigh Samson thought his life was over when Evelyn Trevelyan and her Inquisition took him captive. But a year after Corypheus's defeat, they're sleeping together. It's just body parts, lust, a game of power. It's nothing romantic. There are no feelings. Until it is and there are.

    Summary

    Leonard, miserably divorced, finally gives in to his hospital colleagues' requests to join them at a luxurious pleasure house. He's put off by the experience until the Madam offers to get him a boy, and the one that arrives at his room is nothing like he'd imagined.

    Jim had always followed three rules when it came to selling his body: Don’t give the client your real name, don’t deny the client anything, and definitely—obviously—don’t fall for the client. It’s never been difficult to stick to those rules until Jim finds himself working in a house full of girls, servicing a man he calls Bones.

    Summary

    Friend or foe? Packmate or werewolf? Safety and security or excitement and danger?...Good or evil?

    Unfortunately, not all choices are black and white, and sometimes heroes and monsters lurk where they don't belong.

    As supernatural forces loom large and threaten to destroy his pack, Isaac has a choice to make: Stiles or Ethan?

    ——————

    Isaac/Ethan & Isaac/Stiles love triangle with friendship, family, and pack feels thrown in. Both romances are slow burn, but there is smut and eroticism in the early chapters. Told in 3rd person from Isaac's POV. Story takes place after 3A and before 3B and diverges completely. 3B won't be happening.
    ——————
    *Snippet of Ch 37 - Anchors and Logical Phalluses*

    Isaac lifted Stiles into his arms and nuzzled his neck, savoring the rich, satisfying scent of pack and the tangy-crisp buzz of Stiles’ personal scent – sage, sap, and rain be damned.

    Isaac pulled his face back from Stiles’ neck and – Fuck! Stiles looked so happy and innocent Isaac could barely breathe.

    “So, Netflix and cuddlefest?” Stiles' breath tickled Isaac’s mouth as his fingers tickled the back of Isaac’s neck. His thighs were warm against Isaac’s hips.

    Summary

    When Dean finds Castiel standing on the wrong side of the bridge railing in the pouring rain, he takes him home. He finds himself caring for the man as a replacement for his younger brother, but when Cas gradually reveals what led him to contemplate suicide Dean realises that they can't ignore his past, and takes steps to help Cas heal and move on. As Dean becomes more aware of how our pasts can affect us, and as his old trauma resurfaces, he – albeit reluctantly - starts to open up to Cas about his own past. What starts out as a friendship born of loneliness and desperation grows into something more as they are drawn closer to each other over time, and slowly help each other to mend.

    (The tags probably make this sound more depressing than it's going to be.)
