    Summary

    For the hundredth time in the past few minutes, Laura thinks about how weird it is, having Carmilla here, in her house when hours ago they were at Silas, fleeing for their lives as the earth shook and croaked beneath them.

    A vaguely plot less excuse to indulge in domestic fluff.

    a piece on first loves, and last loves, and all the complications of going home again. with a dash of holiday cheer thrown in. carmilla is written so neatly here.

    I CAN ONLY SCREAM ABOUT THIS ONE. someday i'll gather coherent thoughts, but mostly this is !!!!!!!!!!. the world building in this story is gigantic and marvelous. the plot is just as thoughtful.

    Summary

    Mulan pinches the bridge of her nose, closes her eyes, and attempts to tamp down her- is it frustration? Bewilderment? Something along those lines. “Emma.” She begins slowly, willing herself to breathe, “When I told you not to get involved with magic, I did not mean ‘Emma, get involved with magic, use it to combat other forces of magic while wielding a sword of legend, and then overthrow a monarchy’.”

    Emma gives her a flippant shrug, “These things happen.”

    (an AU of the Heroes & Villains AU inspired by the Russian fairy tale, "Tsarevitch Ivan, the Firebird and the Gray Wolf" featuring ominous prophecies, a myriad of collapsing architectural structures, and inexplicably, possibly a ficus.)

    Summary

    Captain America wakes up and causes quite the scene too, bursting into the middle of Times Square and turning circles around in wonder. The video plays over and over on the news, which Angie watches then, over and over, at the diner. There’s the gorgeous Peggy Carter, at the center of a storm of suits and Escalades, staring up at the big lights. She doesn’t look a day over 26, and honestly, Angie thinks she looks beautiful. Modern day AU where Peggy is Captain America.
