    Summary

    It wasn’t the norm, for an adult to hold onto his or her Belief. In fact, such a thing almost never happened. Most children started to forget, around the end of their preteen years, and the Guardians had learned to accept that. They protected children, after all, not adults. Their strength came from the pure simplicity of a child’s Belief. Adults were too world-weary and skeptical to ever maintain such a thing on their own. It made sense that they would lose so many in the transition between the two.

    Ingrid was something of an exception… not because she was special in and of herself, of course, but rather due to an odd series of events.

    But one thing inevitably leads to another, and when Ingrid strikes up a fake "deal" with the Boogeyman to help her little sister with her nightmares years later, she doesn't realize that a shred of belief and permission are all the Boogeyman needs.

    Belief opens many doors, including ones that probably should have stayed firmly shut.

    Starts out cute, fluffy, and a bit slow, but picks up (and grows darker) quickly!

    Summary

    I wrote this for waitiknow on tumblr, because of a lovely picture of Thor as Sandy, and Loki as Pitch. c:

    “It is good to see me?” He turned aside, lifting his hands to stare at his palms - imagining, for a moment, that he could see through them, as the men of this world had chosen to. That they had chosen to close their eyes to him. “It would be at that.”

    Summary

    Now, it came to be that the witch had a princess as her captive, a beautiful, helpless thing with gold hair and eyes as green as clover. Every day, the princess would sit at the window of the witch’s hut and weep, and there the wolf saw her and within him rose a powerful lust.

    He wished, as he had never wished before, to devour the princess’ flesh and crunch her bones between his teeth.

    Summary

    Originally for a kinkmeme prompt that asked for an AU of Ursula LeGuin’s story The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, in which a prosperous city flourishes because of the abuse of one child. Inhabitants of the city are shown the horrifically imprisoned child when they come of age, and they make the choice to stay, knowing what their happiness and prosperity is founded upon, or they walk away and leave the city and its secret behind. The prompter asked for Charles to be the child, and for Erik to take him away. Set some time after this occurs, and reconfigured for the X-Men Fairy Tales challenge on LJ, in that it contains significant elements of the myth in which a character meets a traveller or travellers on the road, who later turn out to be angels or other supernatural beings.

    Summary

    “Mother.” Jasmine's voice was eager, pressing, on the last afternoon of her mother's life. “Tell me of Djinn.”

    “Curious child.” The woman's voice was sticky with the black phlegm of her illness, but also with affection for her only child. Her land was lucky to have such an heir. “Very well. I shall sing you the song of the Djinn.”

    And this is the song the girl was sung.
