  1. Summary

    A bafflingly long-winded, cosy domestic world of fluff! In this universe, MCR never existed. Gerard threw himself into art instead of music after 9/11, Frank owns an indie record label, and Ray is a studio musician.

  3. Summary

    From just having a butler and a personal hacker, Lara didn't necessarily think she would be hand-picking the elements of--well, a family. Of sorts. Naturally, not a very conventional one.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Battle of the Brothers, Nori has negotiated a peace treaty. Of sorts.

    One which identifies a new target for our warring factions:

    Who can most effectively initiate a courtship between Thorin Oakenshield, he who would be King Under the Mountain, and Bilbo Baggins, surprisingly-evil-good-natured Hobbit gentleburglar?

    Without, of course, arousing the suspicions of either party.

    Summary

    The things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, even if that involves a lot more form-filling, bickering, covert glancing, miscommunication, and flying furniture than we might expect.

    Summary

    "I can't decide whether that's wonderfully poetic, or terribly sad," Jonathan says, propping his chin into his hand as he's watching Gethin carefully.

    Gethin snorts and shakes his head. "Well, back then that seemed like paradise. And sometimes it is. But I could do with a little less homophobic graffiti and loneliness."

    "Loneliness," Jonathan repeats, incredulously. "You can't be serious. Every gay organization in London is having their meetings in your backroom."

    Gethin pulls up his shoulders. He suddenly feels like he's said too much. "You can be lonely in a room full of people," he says defensively.

    Jonathan looks at him for a long moment, then he nods. "Of course you can," he simply says, and pours them more wine.

    Summary

    Bilbo's next door neighbor is a character in a romance novel, so what does that make him? Also, Fili and Kili do not, in fact, provide an opportunity for a meet-cute.

    Inspired by hackedmotionsensor's Single Dad Street AU.
