    Summary

    There's alcohol involved, then a man with a gun with his fingers wrapping bruises around a girl's wrist as she screams, and Enjolras can't do nothing, not when someone's about to be killed right in front of him.

    Dark and intense and morally compromised.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Amazing queer arranged-marriage space opera. Wonderful slow-burn romance. Gut-wrenching portrayal of the aftermath of abuse.

    Summary

    “Things like this are why we didn't want a label,” Grantaire says.

    “Well, you have one,” Cosette says. “Along with a tour bus that gets repaired if it breaks down, connections to excellent producers and studios, and a steady paycheck. Ask your bandmates if they agree.”

    “I don't want to do this,” Grantaire says.

    “You're joining Sank Amy's tour,” Cosette says. “We can talk more in the morning. Your first show with them is this weekend.”


    Grantaire's the frontman of an emo-revival band. He really doesn't want to tour with bubblegum-pop-with-a-political-message boy band Sank Amy—but it's not really his choice.

    The delightful union of Les Mis and Bandom. Politics and stupid boys in bands and R as basically Pete Wentz.

    Summary

    He has sworn never to go back to the ballet world. He has no intention of dancing again. But somewhere the Fates are having a real party laughing down at him, because one minute Grantaire's living his life in peace and the next he's - choreographing a new ballet of the Iliad?

    Summary

    A modern AU with concepts loosely based on Ursula K. Le Guin's Gifts. There are three things you need to use your Gift: the hand, the eye, and the word. Normally passed on from mother to daughter and father to son, the Gift becomes twisted when the lineage is impure, or when the Gift is passed to the wrong offspring. Enjolras is born with the Gift of Unmaking, and lives with his Gifted hand bound. He seeks a new life in Paris, guided only by his correspondence with a man named Combeferre, who whispers to moths and sends missives on the wings of birds.
