    Summary

    When Bella came of age there were no courting gifts, not that she had expected any, much to her parent’s disappointment. While heartbroken at the thought of never being a wife or mother, a part of her had been relieved. If being barren already made her less than a woman, what would her spouse think when they found out she could also grow a beard? It was Bella’s most fiercely guarded secret, something she never confided even to her parents. And if she had had her way, she would have taken it to her grave.

    Summary

    When Ashton finally reached his home, limping, bruised and crying silently, the door flew open before he had the chance to reach for the knob and his father looked at him with such fury and hatred in his eyes that Ashton cringed involuntarily. Ashton just awkwardly stood on his own lawn as his father looked him up and down, nose crinkling in disgust as he saw the multiple bruises on his son’s face. Eventually he grabbed Ashton’s collar and dragged him into the house. Ashton yelped in pain when he stumbled over the threshold and fell to the floor, his ribs throbbing painfully. His father walked around him in circles, shaking his head disapprovingly, his face distorted from anger. He was like a predator, teasing its wounded prey, enjoying the moment before ending its life. Ashton watched the man he called his father anxiously from where he was situated on the floor, curling up into a ball, trying to make himself as small as possible, despite the stinging and throbbing and bleeding of his body.
    And eventually, the predator attacked. 

    Or a soulmate au where everyone gets their soulmate’s injuries on their own body and Michael is worried sick about his.

    Summary

    For the better part of a year, Steve has been obsessed with finding Bucky to the point where he's neglecting everything else - including his boyfriend, Tony. Tony puts a brave face on and acts as supportive as he can, but on the inside he's falling apart.

    And no one knows it until the night Tony snaps. In a fit of desperation, JARVIS calls on Phil, the only one capable of understanding because of his age play with Clint, to care for Tony. Phil might not be used to taking care of someone as little as Tony Stark, but - until Steve gets the emergency message to return - he'll be damned if he lets that stop him.

    Summary

    It's been drilled into Kili's head since he was young that there is no possibility of salvation for him and that he will soon find himself burning deep in the fiery bowels of hell. But he tries not to dwell on that too much. His childhood has left him with self-esteem issues, his high school year's confusion on what exactly he is and now, if he's even meant to be here on this earth.

    Then he meets two men, Bilbo and Fili who challenge absolutely everything that he's ever been taught. With them come an onslaught of people, friends and family who make Kili question if everything he's been taught and that perhaps even for sinners like them, salvation is possible.

    Summary

    Jim can't help it. Literally. Every fiber of his being is pulled towards the one person in the city that he should not be drawn to at all. He knows it is wrong. Detectives don't have feelings for members of crime syndicates...

    But if it is all so bad, then why does it feel like his life won't be complete without the Penguin in it.

    Changes the timeline enough so that things can just happen.

    Summary

Her current adoptee is Sherlock, a fractious, distrustful sub who is ashamed of his designation and furious at his brother for placing him under Molly's care.

    Summary

    This story is a spin off of my Malcolm/Clara Story
    An Unlikely Love
    found here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/3544415/chapters/7803095

    This is the continuation of Ronnie and Mathew's relationship. So they are interconnected and you may ind some parts that are very similar or the same because the intertwine with each other. Malcolm and Clara will pop up but the concentration is on Mathew/Ronnie.

    If you do not like M/M storied please feel free to skip over this one. It is not necessary to read either story to understand the other although it may help fill in gaps from each. I have included a few excerpts from it's sister story to help establish how they met. This story picks up right after chapter 29 of An Unlikely Love (See Notes)
