    Summary

    The tale of Prince-Consort Hadrian Potter.
    A Cinderella-style, Princess Bride as retold with the characters of Harry Potter. Not a literal retelling, just uses the basic storyline with my own embellishments.
    Harry is the orphan nephew of the Dursley family, forced into servitude until he is sold, married or runs away. None of which are appealing to him. A stranger comes to take the job of Stable Master. His name is Draco Malfoy. He doesn't say much to Harry, just "As you wish." Maybe one day, Harry will realize that what he really means is, "I love you."

    Summary

    Uncle Bones sits down in sickbay to read a story about fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, True Love, miracles! This might be a kissing story.

    “I do not want to hear a story about girls. Girls are gross.”

    McCoy sighed again. “Any other requests I can fulfill, so I can butcher this story beyond recognition?”

    “I would prefer it to be set in space."

    Really amusing, some pitch-perfect character interactions and an intriguing crossover artefact.

    True love. Pirate treasure. Fencing. Fighting. Captures. Escapes. Life and death. Pursuing happiness.

    Getting away from Humperdinck wasn't so easy after all.

    This is an AU in which Buttercup was the maid of all work who became a pirate and Westley was the prince. Some of the genders of other characters have also been changed, but other than that, the world is more or less the same.

    In a slightly-altered future where Buttercup and Westley's roles reverse, the twosome must use their wits and their horseflesh to escape the Princesses' wrath. This captures the movie's spirit exactly, while reminding us just how fun retelling and telling a story for a child is. Adorable.

    Summary

    I posted: Send me a ship and an AU and I'll write a fic in 3 sentences. These are the results. It kinda evolved into something bigger than I expected.

    Oh and if anyone wants to expand on one of these prompts (i.e, turn one of these into a full fledged fic) please be my guest, just let me know beforehand, either here or on tumblr. url:stuckinsidethesnogbox.
