    Summary

    This story was inspired by the Victoria series, of the English channel ITV, whose first season premiered in Portugal in 2017, in 8 episodes in RTP1, and in the book by Daisy Goodwin, with the same title, published in 2016, by Review. In some points it uses some of Daisy Goodwin's phrases.
    My starting point was to answer, in a fictional way, the question: what could have happened if Queen Victoria of England had not asked Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gota in marriage? Based on the mutually profound relationship she had with his prime minister - William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne - what dynamic could have been established between them from that moment?
    The text I publish here begin at the end of episode 4 of the series and on page 454 of the book and presents one of several possible fictional answers to this question.

    Summary

    Este texto foi inspirado na série Victoria, do canal inglês ITV, cuja primeira temporada passou em Portugal em 2017, em 8 episódios, na RTP1, e no livro de Daisy Goodwin, com o mesmo título, publicado em 2016, pela Review. Em alguns pontos usa algumas frases de Daisy Goodwin.
    O nosso ponto de partida foi responder, de forma ficcionada, à pergunta: e se a rainha Victoria de Inglaterra não tivesse pedido Albert de Saxe-Coburgo-Gota em casamento? Tendo por base a relação mutuamente profunda que tinha com o seu primeiro-ministro – William Lamb, 2º Visconde Melbourne – que dinâmica se poderia ter estabelecido entre eles a partir desse momento?
    O texto que aqui publicamos, e que começa no final do episódio 4 da série e na página 454 do livro, apresenta uma das várias respostas ficcionadas possíveis para essa questão.

    Summary

    Shanghai [verb]: Term describing a type of kidnapping referenced in 19th and 20th century for sea work. However, women weren't used for such sea work, but rather... Sexual desires.

     If you can’t fly, then run; Today we will survive; Aim your gun! Ready! Fire! - BTS, NOT TODAY

    In the very early turn of the 1920s, there were two rival gangs. BTS was framed for being in the Shanghai business while their rival gang went scot-free despite them being the ones really in the business. During the time that BTS was framed, their rival gang kidnapped you- the prettiest girl in Portland Oregon, and they're selling you off to 3 notorious Pimps for the Asian Market. A mistake that the rival gang has miscalculated, for they knew you were BTS'- and thinking BTS wouldn't fight to get you back. However, they underestimated BTS' ability to fight for what is theirs, and the rival gang is going to find out the hard way for stealing you.

    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s—

    And this romance is illegal.

    Summary

    An expanded version, with included adult content, of the 2017 Beauty and the Beast movie. Elements of the Fairy Tale and other versions intermingled. Begins after the trip to Paris. Contains Belle x Beast!Adam.

    Belle decides to take it upon herself to unravel the curse, and learns more about herself-and the others as she falls deeper into an enchanted, forbidden, and often erotic world.

    "...All animals must, even flowers do…I see no reason to act ashamed.” Belle muttered-despite how fast she felt her heart hammer at the nature of this-she’d never talked to anyone like this, about such forbidden topics. Of course she understood why to be ashamed-but talking to Adam was like being in an entirely different world that did not have the judgmental limits of her village.

    Summary

    Do you wonder sometimes, about why people are the way they are? Why are they so cheerful, why are they so clingy? Why so stubborn or why so idiotic? Maybe?

    You most likely have. And of course, so have I. This story might help you answer these questions or at least I hope it does for my boys.

    They really are more alike then they'll ever realize. It's like that cliche in where the villian says "We're not so different you and I." Except they're just too much of an idiot to realize the fact and I'm the one showing it to you.

    Summary

    Queenie takes his jackets and kicks off her shoes before inspecting him curiously. “Where’s your case, Mr. Scamander?”

    Newt scrubs his sweaty palms over the front of his trousers, feeling curiously unanchored. “I left it with my brother so I could catch the Floo here instead of waiting for a ship,” he explains breathlessly, watching from the corner of his eye as she chews her lip, making an obvious effort to stay out of his head. His shoulders relax when she produces no recriminations, touching his waistcoat pocket to feel Pickett stir curiously beneath his fingers. “I can only stay three days. I—I think that will be long enough.”
