    Summary

    From a prompt on Tumblr by weconqueratdawn

    What if Hannibal were a champion pedigree dog breeder at a show? Of the most pretentious kind of dog? And Will - who only adopts abandoned mongrels and doesn’t like breeders on principle - is only there to fundraise for his dog shelter? And, idk, their eyes meet over organic kibble or something, and it’s only later Will sees him prancing around the ring with his ridiculous blow-dried dog. Hilarity and romance ensues.

    Summary

    "Sometimes I feel that he is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life."

    Few events are more thrilling in a young man's life than a blood feud between two villages. Or so Adrian thought.

    Torn between affection toward his traditional-minded father and worship of his peace-loving, heretical priest, Adrian finds himself caught between two incompatible visions of his duty to the gods. Then the Jackal God sends Adrian a message that will disrupt his world and send him fleeing to a new and perilous life.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    "It's all about torture. That's what I didn't understand for a long time. The High Seeker has been seeking out and punishing those of us who wish to show greater mercy to the prisoners than the Code allows. Those of us who question whether it's right to torture prisoners."

    The Eternal Dungeon is no longer a prison. It's a battlefield.

    Split apart from their closest loves and friends, a small group of prison-workers seek to abolish the use of torture against prisoners in the queendom's royal dungeon. Time is running out, for the deadly High Seeker has already flogged and executed prison-workers who oppose his policies.

    Do the reformers have enough time and skill to bring about radical change in the dungeon? Will they be able to overcome their mistrust of one another?

    Summary

    To them, he was the hate glue that kept everyone together at the expense of offering himself up as a literal and metaphorical punching bag.

    He was sure that they didn't think he didn't have much use beyond that, but he was determined to prove them wrong.

    He could prove just how useful he can be, that way they won't need to leave him behind again.

    Summary

    Jayavanti Chatterjee wanted to see the stars, but in her own way; working as a nurse on a Red Cross and Red Crescent patrol and intervention ship seemed like a good option. Now, as her crew work to investigate and treat a mysterious plague on a small and deliberately isolationist human colony, and hints of a great danger lurk in the background, she's beginning to rethink her choices. (A Star Trek: AOS fic centered entirely on original characters with a brief cameo from the Enterprise near the end.)

    Summary

    "You know, you always seemed like a...market tested kinda thing. Big gun, tasteful scar. Locked in your little cycle like a prized poodle after its own tail."
    Hector Escaton knew that the world was doomed, along with everyone in it. It didn't matter to him whether or not he died an outlaw, he just liked the rush, the ability to create chaos and evade the lawmen. If he could go out with a bang, then he would consider his life having been lived to the fullest.
    That all changed when he found a necklace stashed away in his belt. He didn't remember putting it there, but just holding it brought back a flood of memories he didn't know he had forgotten. A young lady had given that necklace to him for luck, he could see her face in his mind, but Hector had no idea who she was.
    He had the strangest feeling that he had known her in another life.

    Summary

    Will Graham became the unwilling host of a xenomorph, ultimately leading to his demise. Hannibal, an android scientist working for the Verger-Pazzi Corporation, finds his dear friend's death unacceptable; additionally, the opportunity to study the newly-discovered species is too tempting to turn down.

    The Company looks to profit; the crew of the Baltimore, to cope; the resurrected and hybridized Will, to accept his fate. As for Hannibal, his developing emotions may prove more alien than the actual one he cares for on board.

    Summary

    "This is the right place for you, boy. They'll school you here to be a right-standing man, one who can keep control over his actions, like any good man should. You just got to keep yourself open to learn and to grow."

    How far can trust grow, when you're in a place you despise?

    Arrested for a crime he doesn't regret, Bat ends up handcuffed to a group of fellow city boys and sent on a long journey into the countryside. He knows that he is being transported to a prison for delinquent servant boys, but what form will his imprisonment take?

    Tattooed with the rank-mark of servant, Bat must learn how to keep from losing his temper with the men who carry the keys to his freedom. But in the unbelievable world where he has been deposited, in which a genial master orders strict punishments and a servant acts like a master, will Bat be able to locate the door to his release? Which of his fellow prisoners can he trust to help him?

    And will he survive long enough to find out?

    Inspired by true events at a turn-of-the-century reform school, this novella (short novel) is set in an alternative version of the Chesapeake Bay region during the 1910s.

    Summary

    "They always held their breaths when the soldiers passed by, but so far, no battles had been held anywhere near Doughoregan Manor or any of its quarters. And sometimes a posse set out with the hounds, to hunt down the quarry."

    Civil war is tearing apart the land. Again.

    For centuries, the Kingdom Vovim to the northwest and the Queendom of Yclau to the southeast have fought each other for the border territory of Mip. Sometimes the Vovimians are lords of the land. Sometimes the people of Yclau are.

    The only Mippites whose lives don't change are the slaves. Young Sling knows that his own life's work has already been determined: he is to be a house slave, serving his master's son. But secret meetings in hidden places with his master's son make Sling uncertain of what will happen next.

    When news arrives of a proclamation that will allow Sling to leave his hated master, Sling faces a difficult choice: whether to flee to safety or to stay and face the dangers of an unknown future.

    "Emancipation" is loosely inspired by events at a border-state manor during and after the American Civil War. This is a Juneteenth holiday story for my readers.
