    Summary

    Charles does what he can for mutants - helps them towards safety, or guides them to Logan's freakshow where they might find a home. He knows society's views are wrong, but there is little he is able to do within the law. Things change when he finds himself attacked in his home by someone with murder on his mind.

    Erik knows all about scientists, what they are capable of. And on paper, this Doctor Xavier looks terrible. He suspects the world would be better off without him. With his powers, its easy to slip into the manor at night. But he wasn't expecting a telepath.

    Summary

    Bucky’s job as a carnival fortune teller is the best he’ll get for his lot in life, and he’ll forever be grateful. It’s given him food, shelter, and a motley group of friends; but most importantly, it’s satisfied the tarot deck.

    When he reads the fortune of one Steve Rogers, however, the tentative life he’s managed is shaken.

    Summary

    When Carlos awakes in a dream not his own, that's the only thing he knows at first. He's dreaming. (He has to be.) But whose dream is this and why's he apart of it? More importantly, who is... "Jayesh," and where the hell is everyone else?

    The tent flap rustled as a warm breeze whistled past, giving Carlos a glimpse of a lantern-lit interior and a hay-strewn floor. He took a tentative step, not sure if he should enter. Another glimpse at the flyer, though, and his mind—his heart—was set on it. He had to see this… “snake man,” he decided.

    Maybe then the dream would end.

    Summary

    But whatever Seth said in those next moments was a complete blur as a knife came flying and landed in a post just inches away from Ray. Ray paid the knife no notice, all of his attention drawn to the man running towards him. It was as if time had slowed down, the man’s magenta bangs gently falling over his matching eyes as he pulled the knife out of the post. He brushed his hair back out of his face and gave a cocky smile. Ray was sure he didn’t know how to breathe any more.

    Is it really a fandom if there isn't at least one Greatest Showman AU on AO3?

    Newly appointed Ringmaster Ray Blackwell has a hard time adjusting to the role that was thrown on him; however, none of that amounts to the trouble he has trying to sort his unfamiliar feelings for Ace Fenrir Godspeed.

    Summary

    The young acrobat slipped noiselessly between through the shadows, hiding himself between fluttering, rainbow-hued tent walls and rows of hanging laundry until he was tucked tightly between a pile of boxes and the thick canvas wall of the ringmaster’s chambers. 

    “Is this it, then?” he heard Leontes scoff from within. “This miserable creature looks more fit to grace a mortuary slab than a circus freak show.”

    “This specimen is perfectly fine, Leontes. You know I only bring you quality goods.”

    Summary

    Cannon divergent like, a lot. I wanted an AU where everyone gets to be happier and like less traumatized but I didn't want wanting modern either so here we are.

    Basically all six end up joining Inej's family's act turning it into a whole circus. Still will have some cannon events just rewritten but for the most part I want to write them just existing as the kids they are. Sure they won't be perfect and without past trauma, but at the very least they won't be so traumatized that having friends is comparable to miracles.

    Is also an exercise in figuring out what part of the characters personalities are due to trauma and past experiences and what are just core parts of them. Mostly Kaz because as much as I adore ruthless Kaz, I do wonder what he would be like if he wasn't forced to grow up in a ruthless environment.

    He's still stubborn and prideful and thinks he's better then everyone is what I've determined and I love him.
