    Summary

    "Which is exactly what Cas needs in his life: yet another hyper-privileged, heterosexual white male to remind him of all of his futile, unending struggles, including, but not limited to being unable to find a date; not having time to go on said date should he find one; falling in love with straight men who enjoy gay male attention, such as the bastard Balthazar; and – as Cas diverts his attention from his abysmal dissertation to look at Dean Winchester for the very first time – being the most awkward human being on the planet."

    ***

    Doctoral candidate Castiel Milton is strung tight with stress upon attempting to complete and defend his dissertation at Stanford University. When his roommate, Sam, invites his brother, Dr. Dean Winchester, appallingly handsome mechanical engineering professor, to stay with them, Cas finds that they can't stand each other.

    Enter undergraduate students and mischief-making BFFs, Charlie Bradbury and Alex Carter, who think Professor Milton and Dr. Winchester would get along splendidly, and make it their project to ensure this ship sails by the end of the semester.

    Summary

    AU; loosely based on A Midsummer Night's Dream. When Lord Touya seeks the Queen's counsel to forbid his sister to wed her childhood love, he isn't prepared for the interference wrought by two disgraced fairies to thwart his plans. Which is probably just as well; it’s not as if they have a clue in heaven or hell how to deal with these foolish mortals…

    Summary

    'Much Ado About Nothing' written about Sherlock! Sherlock's still a posh dick and John is still a lady-charming soldier. They still argue and tease each other and won't admit they love each other. Lestrade and Molly are in love and they're scheming with Mycroft to push John and Sherlock together.
    Also Moriarty is there and trying to break everyone up and destroy the Holmes' name for Shits and Giggles.
    This is hopefully going to be as close to the Shakespeare play as possible, but it is harder than I thought to turn a play into a story!!!

    Summary

    The little Caribbean town of Port Royal in the 17th century. Women are laced in. Men are rigid. Marriage is seldom a matter of love. The good news is: There are pirates. And there are curses, tales and spirits.
    ("Pirates of the Caribbean" meets Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream")

    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

    AU.

    Felix works as a barista in a small coffee shop patronised mainly by hipsters.

    Peter wanders in one morning and makes it his new mission to lavish attention upon Felix.

    That's it, that's the fic.

    Many cups of black coffee later, they might actually talk about what's happening, what this thing is that's growing between them, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Summary

    Castiel.
    The word tasted like honey, smeared obscenely over soft lips. He repeated it over and over in his head, the syllables cymbals crashing between his ears. He took pleasure in picking it apart piece by piece and worshipping them, carefully pulling apart the letters and letting them roll around on his tongue like candy. He tasted the way the C spread into the a, the way the s slid into the tiel. It was music.

    Summary

    But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
    It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
    Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
    Who is already sick and pale with grief,
    That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.

    Summary

    Lord Chamberlain's Men AU. London at the turn of the 17th century seems boring after the military, with John's roles in his best friend's theatre company growing smaller and with more desolate co-stars. But when he meets William Shakespeare's newest discovery - a grown man who plays female characters - in completely different circumstances than he expected, things take a turn for the diverting.

    No spoilers for series 3 :-)
