    Summary

    "In my family, water boils to ice and songs sound better while rewound." - Kayleb Rae Candrilli

    Daenerys Targaryen is born amidst the ashes of Summerhall, and looks south. Benjen Stark falls for a maid with laughing purple eyes. The Blackfish swims to warmer waters. Asha Greyjoy pays the iron price for her father’s rebellion. A wolf maid declares a halfman whole enough for her. Cersei Lannister gets her silver prince, but she and her twin remain golden fools. For the Rose of Highgarden, love truly is blind. Stannis Baratheon reckons with a storm named Lysa Tully. Ned and Cat, second son and second daughter, find each other in the middle of it all. And even still, the Iron Throne bleeds another mad king dry.

    Summary

    As a child, Oliver Queen has always had grand dreams of the unusual and impossible. As he matures, he can't seem to mature out of those dreams.

    He decides to start a circus, inventing the show business himself. He recruits the acrobat Dick Grayson, the "Atlantean" Kaldur'ahm, the flame dancer Wally West, the archer Artemis Crock, the "strongest man on Earth" Conner Kent, and the green-skinned beauty, Megan Morse.

    This is their story of overcoming prejudice and standing tall in the face of discrimination.

    Summary

    The whites and the foreigners don't mix - can't mix - and that's the way it's always been. Of course, Alfred and the rest of his gang are more than content to separate themselves from any type of association with those aliens, especially from that damn Spaniard Antonio and his stupid gang.
    Nevertheless, Alfred can sense that everything's about to become different. There's a feeling, just around the corner; it's there, but not visible yet. He's sick of waiting, but the air is humming with winds of change.
    Something's coming - he just knows it.

    Or: the Hetalia West Side Story AU you never thought you needed until now.

    Summary

    Their kiss had become somewhat of a tradition upon finishing each show. As the final line of their song rang out, he swept her around and pressed his lips to hers, caught in the thrill of the moment. Fireworks seemed to fill his mind, and there was only the cheers of the crowd, and her. But there were hisses. Boos. Names called, names so horrible Phillip couldn’t bear to think of them.

    Summary

    Peter Parker, amateur journalist, needs a jaw-shattering scoop. One that would put all of the competing newspapers to rest. One that would distract the state of New York--or possibly the whole nation--from the war against the Third Reich.

    For this, Peter has to slip in unnoticed into the life of the rich, the war heroes, and the spies. For this, Peter has to completely destroy the tumultuous life of one Anthony Stark.

    Because if Peter doesn't, the secrets his employer has against him will surely destroy his.

    Summary

    Upholding law and order in gold-mining town Nephilim Falls, population 1,700 souls, is the responsibility of Sheriff Alec Lightwood. As it is, Alec already has his hands full with the saloons and whorehouses making tempers rise and the men rowdy when the day's mining goes badly, and the constant threat of bandits in the hills. The last thing he needs is some no-count gambler setting up a gambling hall in his town. And what kind of name is 'Magnus Bane', anyway?

    Summary

    The Circus is up and running again, excited audiences coming in like mad. They've got money again, the fire is barely a distant memory and both the performances and their popularity are better than ever before. So why are both Barnum and Carlyle's personal lives tearing at the seams?

    Acting can be addictive and whether it's spinning illusions on a stage or living up to the expectations of society if you get to used to the act you can lose your true feelings along the way.
