    Summary

    The mysterious Garnet, Duchess of Osmington, is known for her distinctive taste. Her husband, the Duke of Osmington, is often gone traveling with his merchant business for many months at a time. As a result, the duchess barely leaves her lonely estate. That is until Sardonyx, the Archduchess of Dorchester, decides to give a ball to divert her mind from her recent widow status. Sardonyx invites Garnet and to her surprise, the duchess attends it and steals every gaze from the most prestigious guests to the most humble servants. Pearl, Sardonyx’s not-exactly-ordinary maid is no exception.

    Summary

    Sarah “Gwen” Rogers was nineteen when she married Bucky Barnes, and she knew at the time just how stupid it was: it wasn’t exactly a brilliant move to marry a man who could never love her, even—or especially—when she knew that she was in love with him.

    Neither of them could have predicted the war that came, and if they had, then they sure as hell couldn’t have predicted what would happen when Gwen volunteered for Project: Rebirth.

    Summary

    AU: Tony Carbonell is an omega, a social butterfly (just as his late mother would have wanted) and a mechanic whose genius is becoming the talk of New York’s luxury car circuit. He’s also completely in love with a man called Luke Vargrson (who is refreshingly unlike any alpha he’s ever met); yep, life couldn’t be too much sweeter for the freshly turned twenty-five year old...

    Until he learned that the guy he was so desperate to marry was not only an alien Prince but the leader of an interstellar crime syndicate known and feared across Earth as The Chitauri...

    Or

    Nick Fury is a dick and his super-secret boy-band of super-heroes need to work on their public relations skills; who the fuck is Howard Stark, anyway, and why won’t he quit staring?

    Summary

    All John Watson wants is the feeling of a freshly waxed surfboard under his feet and the hot California sun baking down onto his back. To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair.

    That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition.

    Summary

    The first of three(?) stories in a series I've been writing for the last year. Takes more from Norse Myths than the comics, but centered on the MCU. Starts one century before Thor's planned coronation.

    Time travel isn't impossible even if you don't have the Time Gem, but using it to change anything more than a few days past is widely considered the most effective way to go insane. So when Loki receives a package apparently from his future self he is understandably concerned. The Wheel of Time continues to turn, and whatever happens in this iteration of the universe, Loki will not ignore this herald of dangers to come.

    Of course, that would require that he understood the message. Unfortunately, the package arrives when Loki is still a developing adolescent instead of in the week prior to Thor's coronation.

    Summary

    Richie Cunningham is a late bloomer. He's almost eighteen and still hasn't shown any sign of development. Physically, he looks his age, but he's not a beta like his father, not yet, anyway. A booster shot should do the trick, and spark that latent beta drive in him, but all it does is bring about a change nobody could foresee...

    Summary

    I'm setting this story in the Fascist Dystopia that I know best, which is Sinclair Lewis' prescient book, It Can't Happen Here. If I do this thing right, I'll add in enough details that you don't need to have read the book to understand the story.

    Basically, the story is this: A Fascist gets elected as President of the US. One of his associates knows of Tony's homosexuality and alcoholism, and uses those to pressure him to work for the Administration. While in Washington, Tony meets Loki. Loki is a trans-character (although in the context of the time this story takes place, it's not completely understood that way). She's working as a sex-worker, victimized by members of the Fascist government. Tony takes her away from that, and gives her a new life as his partner. They take in an orphan, Peter Parker, and make a family for themselves.

    Tony finally manages to escape himself. In exile in Mexico, he tells the story of his past, and nerves himself to go back and rescue his family.

    Summary

    One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

    (A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)
