    Summary

    When television star Dean Winchester makes a stop at the Rogue Wave Cafe, owner Castiel Novak initially takes notice - and exception to - the celebrity's presence in the all-but-forgotten beachside town where the age of the average resident is sixty-five.
    This is a story about love and love between family, friends, and lovers, about holding on and letting go, and about maybe finding some turtles along the way.

    Summary

    Chris sits back in his chair, not even sure what to do or say, wondering suddenly and abstractly how he had wound up here, sitting in this nursing home with his first – well. He couldn’t call Peter his first love, precisely – what was between them hadn’t been the sort of thing they had ever put labels on, but damn it, it had been something. And not just the hormones of two teenaged boys, largely sheltered from the rest of the world. He had found himself inexplicably drawn to Peter, so even if they spent months apart, the next time they saw each other, it was as if no time had passed at all.

    Summary

    Okay, yeah, at least two students are constantly on the verge of expulsion. And one of the Future Business Leaders of America wears high heels to class daily. And the music teacher is currently engaged in an all-out prank war with a science nerd from the local public high. The headmaster has "Do No Harm But Take No Sh-t" embroidered on a wall hanging, the science teacher is possibly torturing students in detention, and the chef and her protégée are deadly with their butchering skills--literally.

    But all in all, there are in fact worse lives to lead.

    Summary

    A fannish sequel to EmilianaDarling's dark!Thorin-verse story "On His Dark Throne" (yes, I asked permission). Please be VERY aware of the tags if you're used to reading what I usually write; this is the darkest thing I've posted yet and it is likely to be extremely triggering.

    Bilbo has ruined his beloved by accident, and Thorin has ruled and wrecked his world with the Ring in hand, yet knows not what he's become. Death is the only way out.

    Summary

    In the distant future, dating has become a thing of the past. Instead, everyone is assigned a soul mate at the end of the year that they turn eighteen. Based off of data that has been collected through the first eighteen years of a person's life, the assigned soul mate is a person's perfect match.

    Soul mates are destined to marry and start a family together. Attempting a romantic and/or sexual relationship with someone who is not their soul mate is forbidden. Why would someone need to be with someone not meant for them? Thanks to this ingenious method, scientists claim that cheating, STDs, and prostitution will slowly fade out until they are no more, if they haven't already.

    Haru's own soul mate assignment is drawing near and he's certain he knows exactly who it's going to be.

    Summary

    "Mirkwood has fallen, and the Necromancer (they say) has found something he once lost, and orcs and darker things are crawling..."

    The world labors under the growing might of Sauron, and as Erebor struggles to survive, Thorin is caught between his nephews' machinations, his political alliances and rivalries, and his new prisoner-- the fallen Elvenking Thranduil, whose beauty has been the subject of Thorin's twisted obsession for a century. Will Thorin use his new plaything as a lever against his opponents, or will he break Thranduil's will and despoil him in vengeance? And is there perhaps a third way, a path back toward the light in this broken and befouled Middle-Earth?

    This very dark AU story contains intense themes and sexual material, but is not intended to be solely pornographic. Lore and speculation, extensive character development, broad thematic scope, and an emotional roller-coaster of internal and external conflict.

    Summary

    To believe that all is peaceful when beasts of legend have been felled is the presumption of fools. Threat does not cease. There are the usual things to be wary of, the radical changes that come with new orders and the passage of years, but sometimes there are other things – terrible things that fill in the dark spaces where the beasts once stood. And though Life may weigh you down, still you stand to challenge them and beat them back into oblivion. It is what the Queen does.

    Summary

    This is a fic that was written over 10 years ago and has been gathering dust on our hardrive, so we decided to share its dubious merits with the world. It was written before Order of the Phoenix was published, and is founded on an alternate Year Six scenario. In this universe, Sirius Black's name was cleared and after the events of the previous year, very few Slytherins have returned to Hogwarts.

    Summary

    In this world, there were babies born with a multitude of eye colors, not just your standard blue, grey, brown, and green. There were pinks and purples, fuschias and sapphires, bright oranges, and softened teals. A person’s eyes could be any color you could imagine, and there were even more variations once they were bonded, or found their soulmate…

But it definitely is when you're dealing with an abusive family at home, an eating disorder, championships, and the Prefect of the House of Ravens is trying to emotionally blackmail you into...well, anything he damn well wants. (An Augus and Gwyn story that needs absolutely no understanding of previous canon/content to read).
