    Summary

    “I don’t think you’re a monster,” I said.

    She laughed briefly, and it was a dark utterance with no humor in it. “No?”

    Summary

    There are faint red imprints on her skin, leftover from the elastic’s pressure; they stand apart from the less uniform blotches of blood pooled under the surface. Malfoy scrapes a thumb over a shallow red dent that circles her waist, beneath her navel.

    “I'd think that this is where you—oh. Yes, I think you’ve got the idea.”

    “Yes.” He pulls his mouth off of her in order to sneer. “I might have the hang of it.”

    Summary

    A prompted AU, in which aspiring teacher-trainee Zayn and football prospect Louis are going on a sort of abbreviated gap year. And encounter, after six years, Liam, who isn’t the little harrier he was: no by a longish chalk. He’s a top-order batsman for Warwickshire CCC, and tipped for an England call-up. And he has an idea of how to make the gap year road-trip meaningful.

    After the three find themselves travelling with a curly-haired, banana-obsessed chef and an Irish singer-songwriter who hates publicity and touring, the Continent shan’t know what hit it.

    Good thing HM Government are keeping a kindly eye on them, really, for reasons which shall emerge....

    Summary

    When Sherlock and John become roommates at a prestigious sixth-form college, they both get a lot more than they bargained for. Between Shakespeare, rugby, and not a small amount of murder, it promises to be a very interesting year, but there is much more going on than meets the eye. A noose is tightening around the duo, darker and more dangerous than anyone realizes, and it will take everything they both have to unravel it before they lose everything they've found.

    Summary

    Stiles nodded. “I’m in a play that the theatre department is putting on. We’re doing Hamlet.”
    “Who do you play?” Derek asked.
    “Hamlet.” Stiles’ cheeks went a little pink, he was still in shock that he’d landed the titular role.

    Summary

    A dysfunctional band of college thespians: close friends, mortal enemies, and demanding divas alike. A motley stage crew with varying degrees of inexperience. Two warring stage managers and a stubborn, grumpy director. And then there's the odd man out: Dean Winchester.

    As much as he'd love to get out of being unceremoniously shanghaied into auditioning for the theater club's winter production of Julius Caesar, Dean has two problematic obstacles in his path. One is that through some ironic twist of fate, he's landed one of the lead roles.

    ... And the other is that he might be developing a crush on his blue-eyed costar.

    Summary

    They say the world I walk is tainted gray
    My footsteps reek of shadows; good or ill
    They say I do not care. Keep pity at bay
    The tide of meddlesome life is for me still...

    Summary

    Shakespeare's "Othello" AU:

    A walk to his bedroom isn’t supposed to feel like a march into battle. Yet Derek walks with the heat of adrenaline at his back and Peter’s words deafening his ears. Sickness burns in his throat and scratches his eyes, but his legs are surprisingly steady. For the safety of the pack, Derek knows what he must do.

    (But, God, he wishes there was something else--)

    He will put a stop to this before it gets any further than it already has. He will not repeat the same mistake. He will not let a traitor sell his pack to hunters.

    He will not let Stiles Stilinski rip his pack to pieces.

    {It's not necessary to have read Othello to understand this fic.}
