    Summary

    Once upon a time there was a widow and her two lovely daughters who were as different as night and day. One was called Rose Red, because of her rosy cheeks and warm personality; the other was called Snow White because of her pale hair and paler skin. One thing anyone who had met this little family could tell you: they all loved each other unconditionally.

    Summary

    This is an idea I have had since I was a child.

    Once upon a time in a land faraway, magical beings and humans found a balance in which to live. Side by side they forged a future and created many great kingdoms. As time passed the magic began to fade, and with it left many of the creatures. Fairies began to fall asleep, trolls melted into the rocky mountains, and mermaids slipped further kingdom into the oceans.

    Hundreds of years later a child will be forced to make a desperate choice. Restarting the cycle of magic the creatures begin to wake up and rejoin the humans who have long since forgotten them.

    Not all is as it seems, for while many stories tell of the kindness these beings may show, there are many more forgotten ones of the evils and cruelty they possess.

    Summary

    Storytelling is actually not an unknown pastime on the Milano. When safe (read, disreputable) ports are few and far between and tuning into mainstream channels only helps the law keep a tail on you, you take your entertainment where you can get it.

    Or, 'Peter Quill's Adventures in Cross-Cultural Myth-Making'. It takes a village, after all.

    Summary

    Alec Lightwood is prophesized to bring about the end of the demonic wars before he turns thirty. This lands him with a curse when he's only four days old, one that haunts his life thereafter. If Magnus Bane hadn't intervened when he did, however - the outcome would've been much, much worse.

    -

    Before the curse can bind itself to Alec’s bright, fledgling soul, however, Magnus seizes the dark magic and turns it into something softer; something kinder.

    “I don’t have the power to prevent this evil from touching your heart, little angel,” he murmurs, looking at this helpless creature’s terrified face and how it’s turned red with the exertion of his frightened screams. An aching tenderness pushes out the air from Magnus’ lungs. “But I can make it so that when the darkness reaches you, instead of death you will fall into a deep sleep. It will give you time to be founded by love, which is the only thing that can set you free.”

    Summary

    A rewrite of several fairy tales by the brothers Grimm, to make them fit into a universe/society where everyone has the name of their soulmate appear on their left wrist when they are sixteen.

    The fairy tales will only be slightly rewritten, I want to keep them as close to the original as possible and will only change those parts of the plot that I feel would have developed differently in a society that has to deal with soulmarks being a thing. I'll try to reflect the different interpretations society might have for what the soulmarks mean (it could be the person you are to marry, someone that changes your life or your true love etc.).

    Part Two in my Soulmark Fairy Tales series (the Perrault installment was inspired by AMarguerite's An Ever Fixed Mark/That Looks On Tempests) and gifted to DeerShifter for her encouragement and suggestions.

    Summary

    Passing a test might mean speaking diamonds, or finding a treasure, or an enchanted hat. Failing one might mean speaking toads, or chopping your own leg, or losing a treasure.

    Giving tests... giving tests means a lot more than that. Morlana has known that for a long time. But she still didn't expect her intended saviour for the kingdom to pass her test, refuse her reward, and run away.

    And someone still has to find out where the princesses are going every night.

    Summary

    Will, who had been opening and closing his fingers like an evil mastermind, caught on first. “Fairytales? Little childish, don’t you think?” He waited for the obligatory eyebrow raise from Diane. “Just an excuse for us all to play hero and damsel, huh?” He stole a non-too-subtle look at Alicia. “Ok, I’m game.”

    Summary

    Everyone knows a beast lives at Whitestone Castle, a beast that has stolen souls from the town for many, many years. Should the beast claim one of yours, they say, you take the compensation left on your doorstep and thank the gods it wasn't you instead.

    When her brother runs afoul of the castle's monster, Vex'ahlia does the unthinkable and trades her soul for his. The bargain introduces her to the beast, and to the man still living inside of the monster. Now a prisoner at Whitestone Castle, Vex must find a way to stay alive, and perhaps a way to save those trapped with her - even the beast himself.

However, as days become months and months become years, the world moves on without him in it. Will Loki really benefit as intended or has he simply been condemned to a new type of torture? The arrival of a stranger puts everything to the test...

    Summary

    The roses drew Hannibal to the castle.

    The soft light of the full moon fell on the tangles of white roses in such a way that they seemed nearly to glow, and Hannibal was so taken in by their beauty that he wandered far into the castle grounds, cutting the largest and brightest blooms from the bushes as he went, heedless of the thorns.

    He found himself drawn even more powerfully to the Beast, and though Will tried at first to drive him away, Hannibal was sure that they had much in common.

    (Now with Beast!Will and Hannibal art).
