    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

    What began as two lonely souls finding a clever way out of their social and familial obligations soon turned into something else—something inexplicable, inevitable, and irrevocable.

    Inspired by this softkinks prompt: Young rich/aristocratic hux and kylo are constantly pressured by their families to attend high society parties, balls etc.. they don't know each other, but always see the other suffering through a tedious date. society is pressuring them into heterosexual 'norms' but after finally meeting/talking just once, sneaking out into a moonlit garden, they insist on only attending events with each other from then on, just to piss off the community at first, but then because they cant stand to be apart.

    Summary

    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

    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

    England, 1812. For as long as he can remember, Levi Ackerman works as a physician in the dozy little town of Brighthampton. Together with his ward Eren Jaeger he's living a withdrawn, calm life, whose constant routine is only interrupted by occasional salons and evening societies. It is a life that has lost its charm long ago, yet is held up due to resignation and a certain sence of duty. When the mansion of Stenton Park is rented for the summer to two gentlemen from London, it's already predictable that Levi's life will change in a not too distant future...

    Summary

    His lordship is rich, bored and allowing himself to be persuaded to a marriage of convenience, since the love of his life seems unwilling to put in an appearance and he is, after all, nearing thirty.

    Only rarely does his path cross that of the baronet, a social butterfly with appalling dress sense; when it does, his lordship's contempt is whole-hearted—and fascinated.

    But Sir Elijah is both less and far more than he seems—and an unexpected encounter between the two men sets in train events which will change their lives forever…

    * * *

    Wonderfully illustrated throughout by Notabluemaia, Beloved Beta and Artist, and Hildigard_Brown, Manip-maker Extraordinaire (and even, occasionally, by me). A thousand thanks once again to both for their time, artistry and love for this story!

    The Heart of Ciara is complete in 202,500 words and will post weekly. It is technically more Georgian than Regency, the latter being more a genre, in the context of fiction, than historical fact.

    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.)

    As of May: due to IRL complications, updates will be a bit slower than normal. This will continue and be updated, just not every week. My apologies!
