    Summary

    In the twilight of the Russian Empire, the younger son of Czar Nigel Lestov finds an unlikely friend in a kitchen boy with a very different past. Philip Lestov has no idea what is to come, this future with his new friend stretching out as far as he can see, and Daniel Howlov gets a glimpse at a world so far from his own.
    Ten years later, the czar and his wife are dead and their older son is left to live with his grandmother in Paris; far from the new regime that wants the Lestovs dead. The young tsarevich Philip has gone missing while rumors fly of his survival. The dowager Empress has offered a reward, ten million rubles for her beloved grandsons return, a reward that does not go unnoticed by now conman Daniel Howlov and his close friend, former Duchess Cornelia. When they come across a man with no memories and a resemblance to the prince, the two hatch a plan.
    Followed closely by Kolya Petrov, an officer set on completing his fathers mission, and the mystic Rasputin, who wants nothing more than the death of the last Lestovs, they must journey to Paris with their fake prince. Instead of a reward, they find something much more unexpected waiting for them.
    Dan counted on a way out, not falling in love.

    Summary

    one would expect that nothing ever happens in gavaldon. it’s a reasonable expectation, really, for a town with a population of five hundred cut off from the rest of civilization by a thick forest and an iron gate. but this is exactly the kind of place where magic can grow and never be discovered.

    when a series of petty crimes escalates to something unexplainable, a partnership forms between a shunned villager and a member of a family ostracized for their shapeshifting. can the courage and determination of these two girls defeat a dangerous magic? as agatha and sophie draw closer to the truth, nothing is certain …

    Summary

    “Now don’t get him wrong, Ochako was a nice girl! The only problem was he wasn’t exactly enticed by her brown and bubbly hair. Or her dresses. The lipstick she wore...Her breasts. Or, her."

    ///

    "The blond wowed, in absolute awe of this stranger; he didn’t even notice a woman walking up from behind the man."

    ///

    Or: the bkdk titanic au that no one asked for and I made

    (gay people don't get happy endings. one is not left alone in the end, it ends differently than the movie it is based on.)

    Summary

    1916. Winter rules ferociously over the streets of New York. To the point that summer has all but faded from its citizens' memory. In the wind, miracles dance, fleeing the shadows, reaching for the stars.
    And two unlikely people find each other. One of them, a pianist, a woman of frost with starlight in her eyes. And the other, a thief, born of the sea, with nothing but questions in his pockets. Destiny binds them together, paving the way for a love story that will endure through an entire century.
    Rated T for major character deaths, sensual content, and occasional profanity
    (This is part 1 of 2 of my own reinterpretation of "Winter's Tale" (2014), rewritten from Peter's perspective. I haven't read the book, so this is my reinterpretation of the events and characters that are present specifically IN the film. I stay mostly faithful to the script up until Chapter 16, where I begin getting very experimental. My writing is a little awkward in the first 20-30 chapters, especially with the dialogue, but I think it improves the more I write - I hope so, at least. I know I feel more comfortable writing now.
    I adore this movie and these characters, especially the protagonist: this is my homage to them.)

    Summary

    In the small town of Beacon Hills, the local station of the Mounted Police has to face a number of challenges, which would be simple and straight forward enough, were it not for the slightly incompetent Mounties stationed there are.

    Summary

    At the beginning of the 20th century, Damiano David found himself homeless in the beautiful city of Venice. Running from his past and trauma and struggling with his survival, he discovered his means of survival by helping out Mister Amadeus, a sick book salesman, around his picturesque second-hand book store. The money was tight and Damiano had to rely on another set of skills to keep his income steady. The flood of tourists in the city allowed him to continue his little life of crime during the summer, but in the dead season of winter, he was forced to cut the costs of his living expenses and find shelter in abandoned buildings. On one such occasion, he found an unexpected inhabitant in one of the supposedly deserted places.
    On top of that, a mysterious stranger returned to Venice and Damiano is weary around his menacing persona.

    Summary

    Forgive me, Sirius wanted to say, for feeling and wanting as I do. Forgive me for how I have muddied you in my mind, for the way I behold you, for the way I can not think of the moon without thinking of your smile.

    Forgive me, for how I have sullied our friendship.

    Forgive me, my love, for how I have stolen the sweetness of your morality so I might imagine the sweetness of your lips.

    Forgive me.

    Or…

    It's 1911 and as the first-born son to the Duke and Duchess of Grimmauld, Sirius Orion Black III is the most eligible bachelor in London and plans to remain so.

    Sirius is almost ready to accept his fate when he meets the new groundskeeper. Remus Lupin is sarcastic, clever and heartbreakingly beautiful.

    But with a darkness looming around every corner, will loving him be enough?

    Summary

    Il n'aurait pas dû se présenter à cette réception et peut-être alors toutes ces années passées à repousser dans le fond de son coeur les souvenirs d'une autre vie n'aurait pas été vaines. Son regard ne se serait pas accroché au sien, son corps n'aurait pas appelé ses mains malgré l'éternité qui s'était écoulée et l'espoir de pouvoir entendre sa voix vibrer dans le creux de son cou n'aurait pas été aussi vif. Mais il avait été à cette soirée et leur monde venait de basculer de nouveau.

    La promesse d'un souvenir d'une vie comme espoir à venir.

    Summary

    “Muchas veces pensé en mi amor por Lisa como un acto natural, ella era la luz en el sombrío mundo al que había caído, su figura servía como guía, antes de darme cuenta recordé la historia que nos habían contado en clases, la de una ingenua polilla que confundía la luz de una farola con las llamas de una fogata, y en las lenguas de fuego encontraba su muerte, persiguiendo lo que alguna vez creyó bueno y seguro.

    ¿Era acaso yo una polilla?”

    En 1918, en una Academia de Señoritas, a la edad de diecisiete años, Sayo Hikawa comete el error de construir sus sueños y fantasías alrededor de la figura de Lisa Imai, su maestra de Economía Doméstica.

       SORRY EVERYONE! I have some stuff going on but posting will be back on schedule soon! Updated every Monday!
         
       “Please, Mister Shelby, I have nothing to hide-”
       “Says the woman who stands before me dressed just like one of my boys. A woman dressed as a man always has something to hide.”
       Life was never meant to be a fair game. But even so, how anyone is expected to keep one’s head up through tremendous hardships is a feat worth commending. It is in these intense times we don’t often see the forest for the trees and miss minor details that turn into something much more momentous.
       Such was the case for Tommy Shelby when he was introduced to a young equestrian passing herself off as a man who had been looking for work. Whoever would have guessed the impact she'd make in his life?

    Summary

    After several minutes of mindless staring, another figure enters his view, this one not a wounded soldier, but a blond man in a white coat.

     

    “Nicola di Angelo,” he says in an American accent. “You’re finally up. How are you feeling?”

     

    “I’m not sure,” he mumbles, trying to sit up again and again failing.

     

    ...

     

    "Well, you nearly had it a good deal worse. I think it’s this that saved your life.” And he hands him two halves of a heart-shaped stone, veined with red, brown, and white. “It was in your breast pocket. You were nearly bayoneted through the chest, but it must have bounced off the stone and hit only the shoulder. You’re very lucky.”
