    Summary

    Growing up in the 1960s in a family that expected nothing less than perfection, anything less than such was deemed unfit for a young woman of their status and was punished severely. A house that was classified as 'noble' had dark secrets hidden within those walls, a fear that only the people within experienced. The confusion young girls have growing up was more than intensified in there: it bordered on practically unbearable. This is a story about growing up, about surviving abuse, and about finding salvation and love from anyone you can, even if it’s from the last person on earth you know you should ever hold a deep affection for.

    Summary

    This is set in the ATF Universe but not the character pairings from the Matchmaker story line. Some old fairy tales get retold as adult play stories. Some of the chapters were the result of a challenge in a group that disbanded. I'll leave up those designations. Mostly written in 2003-4 under my pseudonym Athea Holmes. Enjoy!

    Summary

    Not all relationships can stand the test of time—especially when said relationship blossoms in tandem with the mounting pressures from the Inquisition.

    Cullen and the Inquisitor grow apart just before Corypheus is defeated. In the aftermath, the tension between them and Cullen’s worsening symptoms from his lyrium withdrawal convince him to leave his post and return to South Reach to be with his family. Almost two years later, the Inquisitor arrives there on business and sees him again for the first time. Unsurprisingly, he has not gotten any less handsome, and she is not any less regretful about what happened between them. But reconciliation is not an easy process, nor is it an inevitable one.

    Summary

    Completed challenge: 30 short stories for Hiei & Kurama, ranging pretty evenly along the spectrum of depicting different forms of friendship/love, and all involving a hug of some kind. Mukuro teaches Hiei how to handle Shiori (fic 8); the rules of the game are laid out only so that they can be broken (fic 29); Hiei and Kurama discuss euthanasia and the giving of mercy (fic 24); and Kurama learns the perils of entrusting Hiei with secrets when he is too punch-drunk to keep them to himself (fic 26). To name a very, very few of the highlights.

    Summary

    Accidentally meeting a famous boy band on a tourist attraction wasn't the intention of studying abroad.

So what do famous boy bands do when they're evading their manager and have two semi-fans along on the adventure? It's summertime in England and One Direction is on the run.

    Summary

    At seventeen, Dean’s parents sat him down and discussed going in for some medical exams. It was beyond having children, they explained, knowing that Dean’s bravado would cause him to roll his eyes at the thought of settling down and being a father when he was so young; there were other concerns, they explained, cancers and endocrine disorders to discuss, and even the possibility that his rut would hit too harsh if left for too long. Dean had agreed and spent the most embarrassing and invasive hours of his life at a downtown clinic, returning some days later to sit opposite a kind-faced doctor friend of his parents’, his mother and father flanking his sides.

    Summary

    "Gerard loved the cemetery. Every summer, when he and his family come back to Greenville to visit his grandma, he would just be over there more that often than not; he just really loved how calm and silent it was, and obviously the fact that it was never crowded like everywhere else. The Greenwood Cemetery is located at the top of a hill, and is rather far from the city; no one liked going all the way up there, unless it was extremely necessary. He almost never encountered someone around, and when he did, they would be too busy minding their business with whoever they were visiting to pay attention to him. And that was pretty much Gerard’s definition of heaven."

    Summary

    “Point is,” Clint says and looks at Bucky, “people fall in love whoever they fall in love with. Men, women, potted plants. Nobody cares.”
    “Huh.” Bucky says softly and looks quietly contemplating. Steve is not quite sure why this makes him nervous. Then Bucky’s eyes focus on something across the room, gaze intense and laser-sharp. Steve follows his line of vision – Bucky is looking at the bartender. Steve is suddenly a lot more nervous.
    “Huh.” Bucky says again and his mouth curls into a slow, lazy grin. The bartender is looking right back at him and… and he’s winking. Steve kind of wants to punch the dude.

    Or: How Bucky gets to sleep with hot bartenders and Steve is most decidedly not jealous. Or maybe he is.
