    Summary

    When a young man is born to be a hero, something must and will happen to throw a love interest in his way. Thus, seventeen year old Sherlock Holmes is invited by Mrs. Hudson to accompany her to Bath, where he meets the dashing Captain John Watson.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes lives with his loving parents in happy rural isolation. But when he is tragically orphaned, the young man is thrown on the mercy of his heartless half-brother, Monsieur Mycroft, and his new husband. The villainous Moriarty has designs upon his husband's fortune and that of his brother, and imprisons them in the gloomy castle Musgrovio. Separated from his beloved John Watson, Sherlock must cope with terrors both physical and mental as ghostly omens and attempts on his virtue threaten to overthrow his mind and reason.

    A Johnlock retelling of Ann Radcliffe's 1794 classic of gothic literature, the Mysteries of Udolpho.

    Summary

    Just collecting all the snippets from tumblr and the old LJ and giving them a home.

    *new as of 8/15/17*132- Steve/Bucky: post-Civil-War happy naptime fluff
    *new as of 8/15/17*131- Chris/Sebastian: reading-program host Chris and children's book author Seb, and coffee
    130- Steve/Bucky: “That,” Steve says, midway between impressed and angry and not at all intimidated, thanks, “is not a puppy.” The puppy, which is the size of a small cottage and has three massive happy heads, says, “BOOF.”
    129- Chris/Sebastian: loosely inspired by the I'm Dying Up Here trailer
    128- Chris/Sebastian: yoga classes and a first meeting.
    127- Erik/Charles: Charles looks at his hand again. He’s wearing a wedding-ring. (Regency AU)
    126- Steve/Bucky: hurt/comfort with hurt Steve; or, “Next time you listen when I tell you to duck.”
    125- Erik/Charles: more Roman Britain AU, in which Erik's world has changed overnight. Might’ve moved a whole sun. A universe.
    124- Erik/Charles: Regency AU, and first meetings. In a river. Naturally.
    123- Steve/Bucky: modern-day artists AU
    122- Steve/Bucky: Bucky learns to bake. More precisely, Bucky learns to bake cupcakes.

    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.)

    Summary

    Lydia Martin may, or may not, hold the plans to a ship that will turn the tide of the war, but when Peter Hale is told to investigate her by the crown he realises she might be much more than just the daughter of the man who designed the Semiramis.

    Blackmailing her into a courtship Peter introduces her to society as he is determined to find out her secrets, just as determined as she is to keep them to protect her mother and little sister.

    But Peter might not be the rake she thinks him, and maybe Lydia isn't the silly girl Peter thinks her either.

    Summary

    This is a rewrite of Jane Austen's “Northanger Abbey”, this time told from the perspective of Henry Tilney. Since the original is named for the Tilney’s home, I thought this reimagining should be named for the Morland’s.

    Every chapter is named after the canon chapter it was based on, but I will be filling in the gaps that Austen leaves with my own (fluffy, but historically accurate) imaginings.

    Speaking of canon, large parts of this story are necessarily lifted word for word from the book and I made use of this wonderfully convenient online text to do it.

    Summary

    It is 1818, and Robert Walton is a young man living in London, having left behind the pressures of his family home to seek knowledge in the city. Victor Frankenstein followed his creation to Britain, and while the monster is now dead, he must deal with the consequences of the last few years. Life does not stand still in Georgian Britain, there are as ever, balls to attend and the impoverished to watch out for. And while Victor Frankenstein might have established himself as man of secrets, Walton has plenty of his own.

    Things are about to get very dark. Expect a lot of angst. And a lot of fluff. This story has several chapters yet to come.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Waterloo, Mrs. Fitzwilliam becomes the new favorite of the Duke of Wellington... just in time to support him through a messy, ahistoric divorce. Things only get more complicated from there.

    Otherwise known as, "A tumblr anon asked, "If you're ever so bored as to be looking for something ridiculous to fill a prompt- Elizabeth takes him up on his offer? Sees if the 'Iron' Duke lives up to his name?" and I COMMITTED." Part of my "Ever-Fixed Mark" soulmate AU, though it does not deserve the dignity of a title from a Shakespearean sonnet. It gets a Harlequin Romance title instead.

    Summary

    Mylenne Stareye's life in Suramar is far from perfect; at first, from being the only daughter of a kaldorei aristocrat and pretended Highborne who only wishes for more power, forcing her to initiate a training to become a Priestess of Elune as a way to give his household a more respectable name in the Highborne society.
    But everything on her life starts falling apart when her father intends for her to choose her childhood friend, Jarod Shadowsong, as her lifemate.
    That is until a sorcerer crosses her path and turns her world upside down; an initiate from the well respected Moon Guard order: Illidan Stormrage.

    Timeline based previous to the War of the Ancients, with fanart included!

    Summary

    In the country of Wysteria there is a rather unconventional method of selecting the next heir to the throne should the royal family fail to produce on themselves. Any young lady of a certain age, no matter their social status, may compete to be elected the crown princess and with a suitor of her choosing, rule the country and produce an heir, thus continuing the line. This, of course, leaves much room for corruption and a very real chance of leading the country of Wysteria to ruin.

    Violette did not have much of a choice when she accepted the role of princess elect. Everyone, including herself, knows that she only holds this role because of corruption within the very walls of the castle that she now resides. The crown that she wears is a heavy one and she's not quite sure that she can bear its weight as she now has to decide between what is right for the people that she now must serve and the agenda of the very people who brought her where she is.

    Trigger Warning: Depictions of emotional abuse, sexual content in future chapters.

    Summary

    Erik had, of course, known his name before they’d ever met. Charles Francis Xavier, Viscount of Westchester. Famous, or infamous, for those scandalous little books of poetry, plain-bound and sold under discreet covers and scorchingly breathtakingly obscene.

    Summary

    The introduction was unnecessary; Yuuri could have guessed as much from the society page descriptions, only he’d suspected they were exaggerating. ”Mr. Yuuri Katsuki."

    "Mr. Katsuki," Mr. Nikiforov says, rolling the syllables over his tongue. He almost gets the pronunciation right. "May I have this dance?"

    This must be some sort of cruel joke—meeting your fiancé of over two decades as a stranger.

    ______

    Victor comes back from the Continent, falls in love, and attempts break off an arranged marriage—so he can marry the man who's actually his fiancé.
