    (or, "Unnatural Deeds Doth Breed Unnatural Troubles")

    Summary

    "Can you tell a sad story in less than a hundred words?"

    "A story with less detail leaves more to the imagination, making the reader draw conclusions and fill in the blanks themselves, often going for the worst possible outcome first before forcing themselves to be hopeful.

    "With a sad story, they will be crushed of the hope by the end. It's not a matter of how fast you do it, it's how you do it."

    Summary

    Baz didn't intend to stay with his family in Lincolnshire longer than a couple of days, but the weather has forced him and Simon to extend their holiday, stuck in a house where they're not really sure exactly how welcome Simon is -- Baz loves his family, but Grimm hospitality can only hold out so long, especially when their son's boyfriend is The Mage's Heir. Maybe this is the perfect time for Simon to help his boyfriend practice not caring what his father thinks.

    For the January 2016 Flash Freeze Fic Challenge. It's not snowing here in Chicago (it's not even cold) but I stayed in all weekend to play along.

    Summary

    Elysia Pendragon had it all—a dysfunctional, but somewhat decent family, a incredible inheritance, the mind of a genius, and a hopeful future. But all of that vanished when her father was murdered. Or at least, that's what she thought. Her movie star mother regained custody of her and moved back with her husband (who was also her ex-husband's brother) and their young daughter Clarisse. It wasn't long before Elysia ran away, ripping her ties with her family and going her own way, only to become a infamous criminal simply known as the Crimson Dragon. But her new life was cut short when she is arrested... and informed that her suspicions that her father was murdered were correct.

    The Pendragon family had long been protecting the knowledge of Life Stones... enigmatic gems that bestow amazing power upon humans when they come in contact with blood. In the past, these gems had protected the Earth from alien invasions, keeping the otherwise defenseless planet safe from more powerful lifeforms. There are rumors that Stoicheia, a planet in the Andromeda Galaxy that has been conquering other worlds, has set its eyes on Earth. And Red, as she now goes by, must lead a team of those blessed by Life Stones to protect the Earth.

    Summary

    "But love, hate on, for now I know thy mind;
    Those that can see thou lov'st, and I am blind."
    (Sonnet 149, William Shakespeare)

    Rose Lalonde hates the way her mother seems to belittle her life's choices -- particularly her lack of love life.

    Dave Lalonde hates the way his mother keeps complaining about him going through girlfriends faster than Hugh Hefner.

    Unbeknownst to each other, they have each devised a similar plan to evade their mother's critical eye while they're home for her wedding. Unfortunately, the whole mess (predictably) ends up spiraling out of control faster than anyone saw coming.

    Summary

    This is not love. This is passion, a burning fury, a blinding hatred that unites them. A hatred of Robert that proved deeper than any duty. But yet he cannot help but think that he enjoys this, being tangled in his paramour’s limbs and golden hair. Robert had shamed him; why should he not shame Robert? It seems so just.
