    Summary

    "Will you keep your fancy clothes on, for me? / Can you bear a little longer to wear that leash? / My love, I swear by the air I breathe: / Sooner or later, you'll bare your teeth." - Joanna Newsom, "Monkey & Bear".

    He does not have to question if she recognizes him or not. For a few moments he thinks she is debating turning on her heel and fleeing into the crowd. Then he watches her face transform from an uncertain young woman of twenty four, to something resembling the tenacious, take-no-prisoners ambulance driver who saved his life. She squares her shoulders, marches forward, suitcase in hand. Crams her hat under her armpit to free a hand to outstretch to him.

    “Mr. Shelby,” she says. Her gloves, he notes, are brand new, possibly the most expensive item on her, which isn’t saying much. Spotless white. His hands are clean, but he can’t help but feel he’s marring them all the same. “Thank you for the tickets. And the letter.”

    “Mrs. Shelby,” he says, which a better-humored man might have managed to make sound like a playful joke. At best, it sounds like a judge pronouncing a prison sentence. A life term.

    Summary

    A found family, a cold case, and a child's custody.

    A shotgun wedding, a detention center, and the skeleton you married becoming your lawyer.

    You've checkmarked all six as things you would've never expected to be involved with, and with how it goes, you're certain you'll have a seventh one to add to your list.

    It's perplexing to remember it all began with you missing your stop after falling asleep during your train ride home.

    And as more days pass, you can't decide whether that's a good thing or not.

    Summary

    Trust his brother to betroth him the only Trades Unionist Valyrīha in Westeros. To betroth him to someone who loathed everything they had clawed for themselves.

    The noose hangs over Jon Snow like a shadow when Rhaenys Targaryen proposes an end to the feud between their families and an alibi to save him if he'll marry her wild little aunt, Dany. If only anything were that simple?

    Summary

    “I’m a star, big guy. The next big thing.”

    “I’ve heard that one before,” Dream snorted. “Besides, if you were a star, I think I’d know who you are. I know every person who was on set last week,” Dream retorted, shutting down the boy’s argument.

    The man shrugged. “Maybe I slipped by you.”

    “Nobody slips by me.”

    Ooh, you’re feisty. I like that.”

    Dream thought he knew every face of every person at these parties, so you could imagine his surprise when his eyes fell on George.

    or: DNF but make it 1920’s Hollywood!

    Summary

    The picture of Mori himself, framed with silver patterns of flowers unknown to him (the picture frame itself seems quite old), stands on the dresser in the corner. It's strange to see his own, serious face and silhouette dressed in a clean, immaculate uniform. He seems way younger in the picture than he is right now, even though it was taken only a couple of years ago. Next to the frame, a stack of handwritten letters rests on the wooden surface; he sent all of them over those years, more or less frequently, whenever he had time to do so.

    The man gently touches the paper, reminiscing the conditions that assisted him when he was scribbling furiously, frustrated to describe everything in the small, thin piece of paper, desperate to get any kind of contact with her. The stains of ink, the messy handwriting that he was often teased about, the one that got even messier after he was forced to write as fast as he could. All parts of the letter carry a specific memory, causing a tingling sensation in his fingers, making him instantly withdraw his hand.

    or,

    Mori and Kouyou meet again, after four, cruel years of separation.

    Summary

    Half of the King in Yellow gets ejected through a portal on a failed ritual. To return, he must perform a human sacrifice - harder than it first seems, as the entity struggles to adapt to the peculiar ways of mortals. In a stroke of luck, he finds the perfect sacrifice in the form of one drunken, surly ex-PI: Arthur Lester.

    In the meanwhile, Arkham is in the swing of Prohibition and everyone knows how things work around here. A chance meeting and an abrupt kidnapping put John and Arthur on a case: one where secrets lurk behind every mask and blood flows thicker than gin.

    Summary

    It's the Roaring Twenties and Stede Bonnet was a wealthy land owner from New Zealand. He was as rich as could be and lived a comfortable life. But comfortable does not mean happy.

    Stuck in a loveless marriage with the need to get away, Stede decided to move to the land of the free to get into the bootlegging business and opened a Speakeasy. It was a rocky start, but he eventually got the hang of it and it was going great. That is until the notorious Mafia boss, Blackbeard, learned about him and gained an interest in who he was.

    At first the interest came from the story of a fancy man selling illegal alcohol, but then it grew after news came out that the same fancy man had some blood on his hands.

    Then it became something more when it turned out the man was actually horrible at his job.
