    Summary

    “Man,” Nino groans, accepting defeat at last, as he gives the golden elevator doors a vicious, vengeful kick. Just like that, he remembers his present company.

    Nino turns chagrined eyes to Ladybug.

    “Er. Sorry… Probably shouldn’t take it out on the doors?”

    Ladybug doesn’t seem to hear him. She is staring hard at the security camera located in the corner. He’s never seen her so quiet… not that he’s seen much of her, that is. Definitely not this close.

    Damn, he can’t help but think. What Adrien wouldn’t give to be here right now.

    “I’m sure they’ll fix it soon,” Nino offers tentatively, because it seems like something Adrien might say. Or Ladybug, probably, if she weren’t so distracted.

    “They will,” she acknowledges, but her eyes are still pretty far away. “That’s what I’m worried about.”

    “What?“

    Ladybug straightens. She makes a decision; it does really pretty things to her eyes, so Nino doesn’t hear her at first, when she asks him for his hat.

     

    — In which Ladybug gets trapped in an elevator with... Nino. { LoveSquare, brotp!MariNino, all-around-friendship!fic } Prompt: Trapped in an Elevator.

    Summary

    Legends and fairy tales, magic and myths, and—at the center of it all—a story of a young, future-Queen and her young, ageless-Guardian; a girl cursed with fear and a god frozen in time, and all of the reasons why seeing isn't always at the heart of believing.

    { A dash of angst, a touch of fluff, and a whole lifetime of pain and love and hope, all spiraled into a series of drabbles, ficlets, and one-shots; an on-going Jelsa fanfiction of—literally—epic proportions. }

    “You,” Jack says warmly, breathlessly, and it’s then that Elsa notices that his feet are bare in the sand. “You are going to change your mind.”

    Korra and Tahno, and the ten months that they've got; a once-clandestine relationship that has become increasingly less so, the continued struggle one particular new girl faces in attempting to adapt to so-called regular society, and—oh, college applications, track, Championships, and probably something about fulfilling one's destiny as the Avatar along the way.

    Life, in starts and stops, and intervals.

    Summary

    "Dearest and Loveliest Hermione of House Grange,

    I regret to inform you that Fair Ronald has quite unfortunately come down with a case of a rare and most unknown affliction this morning, and is at present quite unable to manage both quill and parchment. (At this precise moment his mouth is exceptionally productive with drool, and I fear that any attempts on his part—once he regains consciousness—will result in cursive of the most soggy nature.) It is most distressing, and it wounds me deeply to share with you this inconvenience on the part of our brother’s pitiful efforts at self-care. Honestly, what was he thinking, not watching what he put into his mouth? For shame.

    Given your brilliance of mind, you have no doubt weaved together this newfound information into the deduction that I, most esteemed Frederick of House Weasley, am writing in his stead."

    Summary

    “You agreed to come today without any sort of explanation?” she prompts.

    “I mean,” Jack shrugs, casual and collected, like a cucumber. Or is it cool? He’s probably not, but he can pretend. “She pretty much just called me up and said, ‘hey, you want free cake?’ and that was all I really needed.”

    (Actually, it was, “Hey, you want to go eat free cake with my gorgeous sister?”
    But that’s really just on a need-to-know basis, and Elsa does not Need to Know.)

    Summary

    Adrien stares at the wall before him, thinking of the seven million embarrassing, mortifying stories that the kwami of Destruction could possibly share with the woman of his dreams—should laziness should not prevail. But which is stronger: the confidence between kwami and Chosen or Plagg’s filterless sarcasm? Would he be amused by telling a tale or two, or would he not find it worth the effort? (Did Plagg miss Adrien as much as he missed him, the stinky little fur ball? Was he still asleep? Did civilian-Ladybug have enough cheese in her house? No one does.)

    And maybe Ladybug would be tempted to give into curiosity about Chat Noir, too… Maybe she'd try to glean hints or clues without breaking her vow of privacy? But what would she ask, and again: what would Plagg say?

    So much power to destroy, pales Adrien, in one so tiny.

     

    — Or: in which an akuma's negative energy tries and fails to swap out a certain set of Miraculous stones, and instead something else gets exchanged entirely. { Ladrien, pining!Adrien } Prompt: Accidental kwami switch.

    Summary

    For Elsa—lessons contain phrases like arranged marriages, contain discussions of the complexities of navigating a political world where alliances are built first and foremost on the precious ink that no one is ever willing to share; where the marks on one’s body can sing and screech like a weapon in the wrong hands, wrong minds, wrong kingdom, wrong bargainer; where destiny can be altered as leverage, can be made into sacrifices in the shape of cunning betrothal. A world, where, somehow, there are some words that were never intended to lie, and still the ravenous twist them, taint them, curl them for their own.

    The lessons on arranged marriages are perfectly perfunctory, of course. With things as they are now, her parents would never agree to such a thing. It’s for the best, that her words have not yet appeared; for the better, perhaps, that she should never receive them at all.

    Meanwhile, Jack's words hint that he may or may not possibly be under the divinely destined threat of future jail time.

    Summary

    Jack, with his silver-blond hair and dirt on his pale face, who sleeps on the cold stone floor. Who is too skinny, too lanky, too weak for hard labor, who rarely sees the sun.

    Who now only sees mortar and shadows, the dark cellars of the Master’s house. Jack, whose skin is forever chilled from nights spent alone, whose blood flows too slowly to warm his veins, to always reach the tips of his fingers. Jack, who sees with blue eyes and with pale hands, who cuts his own silver-blond hair. Jack, who once loved where he lived, who treasured his mother’s family’s name, who lost more than just a place and a home and a guardian when their old master died.

    Jack, who they call, Jack Frost.

    Summary

    It is a widely-known fact that Jackson Overland, notably charming fiend of the local state university and resident prankster of the campus among, is not an incredibly dedicated fan of horror movies.

    Summary

    Fourteen minutes late.

    Elsa sipped her coffee and began to ready her things. She gathered her pens and flipped the cover of her notebook closed. Her bag, once packed, made its way into her lap, until she waited half a minute more. At precisely fifteen minutes past 10AM, Elsa shouldered her light jacket, readied her umbrella, and rose to her feet.

    She’d ordered her coffee to-go.

    As she made her way toward the front door, she caught sight of another newspaper an older gentleman was reading, which read, “PITCH ATTACKS LATE LAST NIGHT, GUARDIANS RISE AGAIN,” and Elsa indiscernibly shook her head.

    { Prompt: Modern Superhero AU and a blind date; in which Anna tried to sneakily hook a sister up and (may or may not have) accidentally introduced her to the secret identity of the city’s newest superhero. }

    Summary

    A series of correspondence from two people who probably would never have known each other at all, if not for Anna’s terrible organizational skills. Postcards, letters, e-mails, and texts, and—somewhere, in between all the lines—attraction. Maybe. Neither of them have exactly ever done this before.

    Summary

    (Because Elsa is someone who likes to be prepared, who likes to know what kind of problem she is dealing with before she confronts it; Elsa knows nothing about the particular causes of his sleepwalking, only the symptoms, and cares not for actually solving it, per se, because she is not qualified for that sort of thing, but after thirty-six articles from Google and four books from the campus library, she is actually starting to feel slightly better about walking a relatively unconscious young man in a hooded sweatshirt back to his apartment in the middle of the night. Perhaps.)
