    Summary

    Jim Moriarty doesn't realize that one of the Holmes brothers was born with a very rare genetic power that allows him to 'quantum leap' other people. With the touch of his fingers, Mycroft Holmes can send his enemies spiraling through alternate universes. While use of the genetic ability is been strictly forbidden, Mycroft Holmes considers Sherlock's safety above that law. When Jim threatens Sherlock, Mycroft has no choice. Jim wakes up as a princess in a fairy tale. Mi Tzu-hsia, as it happens. The next time it's a slave girl. A mermaid. A fucking /sparrow./ Now he and his Prince Charming have to find their way home... if only to prove Sebastian isn't charming, and Jim is /not/ a damsel in distress.

    Summary

    A modern, Hobbit variation on the Scottish ballad "Tam Lin", and an AU of the Ettelëaverse, though you don't need to read any of the other stories for this to make sense.

    Lorna, newly come to her sister's little town, hears far too many stories of (and warnings about) the forest at the edge of her granny's land. Naturally, she has to investigate, but gets more than she bargained for in what -- and who -- she finds there.

    Summary

    A story not based on any particular tale but includes elements from several of Grimm’s fairytales: mistaken identities, a good fairy, a wicked gnome, a proud and stubborn princess, and unexpected wedding night confessions. Peeta is a humble baker’s son who falls in love with a mysterious huntress in the woods as a child. Years later, after he is tossed from his home he sets off to the King’s castle in hopes of finding employment and his love. Yet an entirely different fate awaits him; a throne and a princess. Although he may still get the girl of his dreams, because there was more to the huntress than Peeta ever knew.

    Summary

    This series is a predominantly original series of dark fantasy / explicit fairytale erotica. Over time, I shall be removing references to any other commercial fandoms. Until then, it is a strange hybrid of mostly original work with my own original characters, and one or two commercial fandom characters too. Read the warnings and enjoy!

    CORE to the story are:

    1. Deeper into the Woods (40k total, a good introduction to the characters since the larger works are so long/daunting!)
    2. Game Theory
    3. The Nightingale and Terho the Mouse Lad
    4. The Court of Five Thrones

    EXTRAS (see: fae tales verse - canon extras for more)
    (optional and not integral reading - but still canon):

    5. The Augus and Ash Interludes (Gen)
    6. The Drawn Bead (Gwyn/Mafydd)
    7. The Curse (Crielle pov)

    Summary

    Gwyn ap Nudd was supposed to be raised to be one of the greatest warriors of the Seelie Court, but instead - when he is young - he is turned out of his home after a traumatic event, only to be repeatedly trapped and tormented in the neighbouring forest by his cousin until finally...only a semi-wild being remains. Discovered and captured by a young, Unseelie waterhorse, no one knows if Gwyn is capable of recovery - though that doesn't stop two brothers from trying. But the situation is dire, especially with his cousin still out there, looking for his missing prey...

    Bookmarker's Notes

    '' Did you ever wonder'' she smiled, and it was like river carving canyon in mountain '' why all tsareviches are called Ivan in tales of his land?''

    Truth is, there is magic everywhere. In winds and rocks, in flames and waves. Scattered through world, it can be found in the most savage of wilds as much as in the most developed cities ( and really, there isn't difference), in the highest clouds as much as in deepest pits of dark earth, in the most heated of deserts as well as in the coldest tundras. It is in our every step, our every breath, our every word. When we see and when we listen, when we feel and react, all those are small acts of magic.

    But those are small magics, tiny and weak and undeveloped. They don't amount to much, hold no power over reality as magic of men and monsters, magic of mages and witches, sorcerers and wizards, vampires and ghosts, giants and dragons. It cannot call forth weapons from void, it cannot turn flame into ice, unmade mountains. It cannot stop armies, nor summon dead to fight, or bind people to serve. They are but grains of sand.

    This has led some rather foolish people ( who of course thought everything) say that it makes no sense that stories are so powerful. After all, they are just words, misrepresented accounts of unrecorded history at best, silly tales meant to send children to sleep at best. So why do they, of all things, have such control over people's fates, why do they shape universe as easily as clay when it suits their purposes?

    These stories aren't bound by time and space. For centuries, across countless universes, they have been retold by numerous storytellers, to numerous listeners. Every time they were spoken, they gained bit of power. Power from words, from storyteller's work, from audience's reactions, from their feelings. And each storyteller added something, so they took power from even tiniest detail that wasn't there before, took power from storyteller's inspiration and act of creation. When people developed enough to create books and pictures and films, they took power from there. Whenever somebody was amazed by story, when it resonated with them, or when they were bored or thought them silly, their power grew. Whenever somebody had musings about story, or made joke, or inserted reference to some tale in their work, their grip was tighter. They took power from ideals and morals those stories championed, from plot points in other, less famous works that were unconnected but seemed similar to them, which was all that mattered.

    Alone, grain of sand is powerless. But collect enough of them, build beach or desert, and they become the mighty foe indeed.

    But even without narrators, without listeners, they can survive, thanks to two things. First is that the world itself loves these stories, and so it seeks to preserve them, guiding and helping, like winds that create dunes in desert, or waves that mold lagoons and bays. It does so, till enough time passes ( for older the thing, stronger the magic), and what was once sand is now the mountain.

    Second are people, for what is story with no characters? As they were spawned by actions and feelings of people we today call legends, they prefer such source above any else. They draw power from tales that happen, and from that power they bring forth new tales. They seek to reverse time, trap those from whose lives they have been woven in past, live same fate again and again. Sometimes, they succeed, sometimes not. But it doesn't matter much.

    If the originals won't play, they will just find the replacement.

    Stories have their laws too. Laws written into dark and stars before there were storytellers to speak of them. Implacable even for Gods. First law was: '' Nothing can be given, only bought.'' Second was:'' There must be toil before happiness, trial after treat.'' Third was: '' Stepmother has rights on many things, but not on life.''
