    Summary

    They say that his birth was foretold by the Great Seer of this Age, an omega child born unto the House of Xavier and most beloved of the gods. Powerful amongst the Gifted Ones the child will grow to rule a kingdom mighty and vast, a legacy of dominion over land and sea. That he will be beautiful beyond mortal countenance and desired by all who see his face. Empires will fall by his command and kings by his design; the world torn asunder by war and then made new from its ashes.

    These are the words that herald the arrival of Charles Francis Xavier, 124th of the line of Xavier and heir to the throne of Westchester.

    This is his story.

    Summary

    When I wrote "Kidnapped!" I voiced that I had not made it as dark as I could have and speculated on writing a dark!AU to the story. A fellow author asked "Why don't you?" So with no fanfare I present the story of the Dwarven nation of Erebor, the mightiest of the Dwarf Kingdoms - sharply divided between Alpha, Omega and Beta. By tradition only an Alpha may be crowned King, but Thorin has yet to produce an Alpha heir, so the title of Prince falls to the Alpha son of his only sister, Omega Princess Dis, who rules the Omega Quarter. Into this kingdom is delivered a young Omega named Kili who first sees the mountain kingdom as a haven, but soon starts to peel back the layers of danger and intrigue. He will quickly have to learn to navigate the political mineshafts in this place if he is to make anything of himself. To make matters more complicated, everyone sees him as something to be used or owned or captured, from Dis the Omega Monarch to Thorin the Incomplete King to Fili the Golden Son of Durin.

    Summary

    “I don’t know what you’re looking for, but you won’t find it out there.” Stan is awake, voice throaty with sleep, and he’s directing the words to the night air, but Louis knows they’re for him, words of wisdom from someone who has been here much longer than him, slow and deliberate words, straight to the point and cutting through any bullshit on their way.

    Louis wonders vaguely if it’s that obvious to those around him that he’s restless, that he’s on the verge of spontaneous combustion.

    He shrugs, “I’ve searched everywhere else.” Louis steps out into the hall and towards the night.

    Or the one where Louis runs away to find something better. Maybe it doesn't exist. Or maybe what he's looking for has been right in front of him the entire time.

    Summary

    Sebastian Michaelis reflects on the follies of man, the delicacy of the human soul, and the Earl of Phantomhive./ A frail, cobalt eyed nobleman (whose throat was so very breakable) was ordering him to and fro—and he, the demon of more than a thousand years, completed each task with all the obedience of a well trained hound. It was funny.

    Or: To witness two lovers is a spectacle for the gods. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
