    Summary

    Lower Bavaria, 13th century.
    Son of Henry XIII, Louis III (or Len, as he likes to be called) is about to marry Isabelle. As any other marriage in royal medieval Europe, Len has seen her only twice, to say that much. But there is a problem. A girl who's been visiting his dreams since he can remember. And he won't stop until he finds her.

    ((This is the first part of a long series slightly based on my favorites stand-alone songs by Hitoshizuku-P x Yama, so I'm not sure if it's an AU? Anyway, there will be some worldwide History compliant facts as you can see, but it ain't boring, I swear,,))

    Summary

    In 1831, a young ambitious Gascon arrives in Paris. He is a descendant of the Great d' Artagnan and hopes to live up to his family name in the service of the Musketeers*. The world however is not that of his great ancestor. This is France after the Revolution that deposed the Bourbon monarchy and after the fall of Napoleon. Louis Philippe is now King of the French, assisted by his powerful advisor, the vampire, Minister Guizot. It is also a world in the aftermath of the sinister events of March 1817 that ended with the disappearance of the two English magicians, Mr. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and the coming of the Raven King who now rules from the Throne of Rome. Since then, boundaries between this world and the Other Lands have collapsed unleashing powers no one has been able to contain. A new prophecy speaks of new heroes, allies, and a sacrifice of love but the Raven King suppresses it because it clearly is not what he had expected. Who are these heroes and how are their destinies intertwined with the strange fate of the two lost magicians?

    *Dear Reader, please note that historically, the Musketeers had been disbanded by this period. I hope you can suspend your...disbelief!

    Summary

    Margo Duvalle likes her quiet academic life just fine. Her research on the history of botany is going well -- until she finds a strange manuscript in the local special collections library. What starts as a promising source for a new article leads to a series of unfortunate events that result in Margo finding herself in a strange world -- and in a stranger's body. Soon, she is swept up by the violence that has gripped Thedas. There are plants to collect, and potions to make, but the path to saving a world on the edge of collapse is a thorny one, when allies and enemies switch places and wear masks, and where love is not where you thought you'd find it. And if surviving war, politics, and demons weren't challenge enough, what secrets lurk behind Evelyn Trevelyan's apparent inability to become the leader Thedas so desperately needs?

    Summary

    Stiles clapped his hands together listlessly. “Oh, boy. This is gonna be good.” He closed his eyes, sighing in silence.

    “What’s good about that?” Jackson scrutinised him critically, oblivious the obvious sarcasm.

    Isaac, on the other hand, understood very well how Stiles meant what he had said. There was a very conflicted expression crossing his features – and it didn’t get better as someone seemed to express exactly what he was thinking.

    Theo scoffed. “So, they were getting the blowjobs of their lives, I suppose.”

    Summary

    Summer vacation has just commenced in late May, 1958 and T - Bird leader, sixteen year old Danny Zuko awaits his seventeenth birthday in two months and has completed eleventh grade at Rydell High School located in Northwest Ravenswood on Chicago's East Side, Illinois State.

    Not looking forward to his final year of senior high on September 1st, Danny prefers the social aspect of mixing with his fellow T - Birds instead of academic and athletic achievements. Misunderstood, ridiculed and judged by narrow minded locals for being so troubled, the greaser is known for causing chaos much to the irritation of Chicago's police department.

    Rebellious, stubborn and hot headed, his difficult personality has caused conflict in the past with teachers and other classmates at Rydell. Abandoned, lonely and half orphaned at six years old after tragic events out of his control one rainy night, Danny lacks guidance, ambition and purpose in life.

    Amongst the Northern woods, soft-fallen snow graced a horizon of pine trees. Calm and peaceful, the land was relaxing from the summer bustling. Yet, General Winter and his spirits were worried. Something was waking the forest up and throwing it into disarray.

    Summary

    Meet two German brothers: Ludwig and Gilbert Beilschmidt.

    Two 'normal' bounty hunters that live in East Berlin, Germany. Gilbert is the rowdy Albino brother who likes to stir up trouble. Sadly, this applies everywhere they go(especially at bars).
    -Ludwig on the other hand would rather be at the gym, or at home with his beloved dogs. None more important than the other honestly. He is seen as the stern, but gentle of the two...
    "Good cop, bad cop.", one could say.
    Their inimical job consists of finding magical beings that reside with humans, and to bring them to the government where they 'take care' of the rest. Both brothers never stuck around to finding out what happens to the magical beings, nor did they care.

    Their motto is: "Don't ask questions, and don't pity them. Just break them."

    Easy enough, right?
    That is, until they fell in love with them.

    Hold your horses because this AU consists of folklore from around the world mixed with the craziness that is Hetalia.

    Summary

    "Mama, how do you know when you love someone?" he asked often when he was younger and his mother used to do his hair in the early mornings.
    She only smiled at him softly. She always smiled at him, back then.
    "I'll tell you when you're older," she kept on saying. "For now just feel, Vitenka."

    Summary

    The girl had summer under her skin already. It made her look good next to Gansey; even when he wasn’t full of regal radiance, sunlight bursting out under his skin, the heat inside him turned his skin golden bronze. His teeth were bright when he smiled, when she made him laugh, hazel eyes flashing and winking.

    Ronan’s heart hurt; but that might just have been the ice.
