    Summary

    Basically, the rock opera/musical adaptation the way I see it taking place in a non-musical format and from Pierre Gringoire's perspective. It focuses mostly on his part in the story as the homeless street troubadour with mystical narrator powers he doesn't understand as he rants about architecture with his good friend Dom Claude, is forced into a marriage with that pretty gypsy girl everyone except him is so fatally attracted to, eludes to his mysterious unnamed crush, etc.

    Everyone dies the way they did canonically, by the way, but I plan to post my happier alternate ending as soon as I'm done with what actually happened (because I make references to this fic in the AE). I don't own anything and would appreciate it if anyone who has a problem with my interpretation would keep their thoughts to themself unless they point it out in a very polite manner. Enjoy!

Thor walks into the marriage with no idea what Loki's planning, and shockingly naive ideas of love.

    Summary

    After successfully avoiding Stannis Baratheon's attempts to marry her off, Sansa rules alone as the Lady of Winterfell. But her position is far from secure: her lords do not think she can rule without a husband, the Lannisters are still determined to bring her down, and there are wildlings - and worse - coming from beyond the Wall. When Petyr Baelish arrives in Winterfell with an offer she can't refuse, Sansa is forced to choose between the chance to re-unite her family and her own freedom.

    Will she always be a pawn in the game of thrones, or can she finally become a player?

     

    A sequel to my previous fic, After the Siege, and the third and final part in this series.

    Summary

    Sherlock never thought he'd fully mature as an omega because he was so lean of frame. He didn't mind though. He was happy with the way things were going. When Sherlock finally matured at thirty-six, he'd been less than pleased with his family signing him up for an alpha/omega matchmaking service. He'd wanted to refuse, but if he did he would lose his trust fund, inheritance, and he'd be blacklisted. So Sherlock came up with his own requirements for an alpha bond mate. One he'd thought his mother would never find, and being so arrogant, Sherlock promised that if his mother could find such an alpha, he'd marry them. Sherlock never thought his mother would find him, but when she did, Sherlock was left with no other option but to marry the alpha. Sherlock though, would not conform, not entirely. If he were forced to marry than this marriage would be on his terms, damn if the alpha turned out to be a wonderful man who just wanted to love him. Sherlock would not give. Not even an inch.

    Summary

    Alexander needs to win. It's not just the competitve streak that compels him, but a real need to keep the freedom that has been so grudgingly granted by the Russian Federation. As an Omega, he should have been locked up at home, bearing kits for the next generation of the Russian elite. But he was too skilled and the government granted him his freedom with a caveat to bring honour to the motherland before he hit thirty.

    But despite his personal best efforts, he's still not brought the glory that Russia craves and needs in uncertain times. He gets one last shot at the World's and despite getting a silver, Alex's future is in the balance.

    But an attempted assault at a club has Sidney Crosby stepping in to save him.

    In more ways than he ever thought possible.
