    Summary

    I love Christmas, but as a feministy, queer crip I always feel that many of the classics need a bit of subversion. So here goes: A collection of 12 drabbles, one for each of the 12 days of Christmas, based on true Christmas classics - but all of them with a twist.

    Each drabble is, when the title is included, exactly 100 words long.

    Summary

    "Yuuri had told him about the Red String of Fate legend in passing one day, after Yuri admitted that he and Otabek had met before and he didn’t remember it. Yuri thought it sounded like bullshit, and told Yuuri as much.

    A string was a weak, insignificant thing. Tying someone together with a string wasn’t valuable at all in Yuri’s mind, a light breeze and a tiny snag would break it and it would be lost in the wind. Yuri felt like the tie to him was a steel cable. And it was something bigger than he could understand at the time."

    Summary

    “Do you have one?”

    “What?”

    “A soulmate.”

    “Everyone has one, Yuuri.”

    “Did you meet them yet?”

    Viktor wants so badly to lie. He can taste it in his mouth. No, he wants to say, I don’t belong to anyone but you and I never will.

    But Yuuri deserves the truth from him, not to be lured in under false pretenses. He asked Viktor to coach him, not to fall in love with him.

    “…yes.”

    “Oh.” Yuuri stares blankly at nothing. He bites his lip. “Well, congratulations.”

    Summary

    Everyone gets a soulmate. You don't get a choice in the matter. Fate decides who you love, whether you like it or not, and to her credit, she usually gets it right.

    This time, Fate fucks up. Like, majorly.

    (Or: Failed idol Jung Hoseok is bonded to the very person who destroyed his dream.)

    Summary

    At a masquerade ball, the ambitious twenty-five year old software engineer Kunal uncovers the real identity of a random woman he decided to have a simple conversation with just so he can salvage an otherwise forgettable night.

    Meeting this woman proved to have deadly consequences beyond what he could have imagined, however, as he became ingrained into an alternate world whose citizens are forcing him to play the role of a 'savior' so he can participate in a war being fought between two headstrong queens. But Kunal couldn't actually figure out what it was that he needs to save and who he must fight so he can complete this quest and just go home.

    Meanwhile, the same woman who brought him this trouble to begin with is always too elusive as she kept disappearing on him every time he gets close enough to question her.

    She might just be the only key that can stop this madness—if only she wants to be found and claimed.

    Summary

    The entire apartment is deathly silent.

    “Alphas submit to omegas, is that right?” Yoongi asks eventually, voice low. Hoseok nods frantically and bends his head, lowers his eyes so he’s staring at the hardwood, mouth pressed together so tight it hurts. He cannot speak, unless he is given permission. Yoongi is above him. Seokjin is above him. Everyone in this pack is above him.

    Summary

    Things are a little wobbly in their friendship for a month after the day of their tournament win. Not really because of the way it happened—although thinking about it makes Oikawa’s stomach do exactly the same thing it did on the court, makes his mouth water again—but, because Iwaizumi is presented now. He’s of age, he’s eligible, he’s an Alpha, and Oikawa… isn’t anything yet.

    Summary

    Lance woke to the familiar sensation of fingers carding gently through his hair. It could have been any of a thousand mornings, and for a moment, memory was like molasses. A whisper of a thought told him that he was forgetting something, something big, and that when he remembered, it would change everything. The whisper was a warning, but Lance ignored it, because now that he’d realized it, he had to know.

     

    “I know you’re awake,” a familiar voice said hoarsely, and just like that, Lance remembered.

     

    Lance wakes up in Keith's hospital room. They talk. Sequel to If I Didn't Have You (Someone Else Would Surely Do)

What if every time you died, you woke up in another universe? It sounds cool at first, but eventually it would become a living hell, wouldn't it? Post-BoFA, but includes flashbacks to the quest. Fili/OFC. Smut in later chapters.

    Summary

    Stiles asks, “What are you waiting for?” He still hasn’t made a move to join Derek on the bed.

    “I’m waiting for you, Daddy.” It takes everything in him to hold Stiles’ gaze.

    There’s a hesitance in him every time they start this. Derek is older, an alpha werewolf. He can’t quite get over the spike of humiliation that occasionally works through him at the thought of wanting to give over his control. He closes his eyes for a moment.

    Wanting Stiles to take charge and take care of him isn’t a shameful thing.

    It helps that Stiles is never anything but enthusiastic.

    Summary

    Kit is a rebel mage. She hates the Chantry and everything it stands for. So, no. She's not joining the Inquisition.

    Why would she? To "restore order"? What does that mean, except "get all you mages back in a Circle"? She'll pass. Besides, Kit already has a mission and she's not letting go of it: free the mages, for good.

    If only the Inquisition's ex-Templar Commander weren't keeping such a close eye on her...
