    Summary

    Life as a recently fledged artist hasn't been the nicest walk in the park, but Steve's known from the first day he walked into art school. And it looks like all that work is finally paying off - he's landed a showing at one of the bigger venues in town.

    To celebrate Nat's taken it upon herself to finally drag the reclusive, overworked hermit out to the circus - one night, for goodness' sake. And it would have been fine if he hadn't run into Bucky Barnes, an aerialist and acrobat who Steve is absolutely certain is a muse sent from the gods.

    Bucky would be more concerned about the fact that Steve is so damn hot it should be illegal, if things backstage weren't already on fire.

    Summary

    At one point of their lives children dream of running away from the circus; to travel the world, to do incredible feats with fearsome beasts, fly through the air, to entertain people who would cheer, praise, and beg for more in dazzling lights and gleeful euphoria.

    Takashi Shirogane ran away to the circus, full of hopes and aspirations; he wanted to make people smile.

    Summary

    "Running away to join the circus – Steve wasn’t so green that he didn’t realise the notion was romantic; a cliché. He also knew it was possible that no one would ever believe that his running away and the circus arriving in town on the very same day was merely a coincidence."

    Steve runs away from home but not to join the circus. Bucky works with the big cats.

    Summary

    Akaashi always thought life gave Bokuto everything:
    fame, money, friendship. Eventually, even true love.
    What Akaashi didn’t know is that a perfect life always comes with a price,
    and now it was time for Bokuto to pay it.

     

    Or, less dramatically, a Circus AU featuring an untamed lion tamer, an acrobatic fire dancer, a mysterious master of horses, the world’s greatest illusionist and a guy who’s only supposed talent is to be good with animals.

    You’ll get lots of purple, glitter, magic tricks, lions, junk food, an epic seaside trip and a secret from the past that threatens to take everything away from Bokuto. Especially Akaashi.

    Summary

    'Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, and all those in between. Step right up to Cirque de Xadia, see death defying acts, beauty not found anywhere else in the world, aerialists and strongmen and fire eaters. I can guarantee that this show will change your life! Step right up, step right up!'

    Soren snorted.

    It was a bit insensitive, really. Step right up. He would if he could, but instead he waited impatiently for his father or sister to wheel him into the big top. He hoped they had a level spot for him to be parked, where he wouldn’t be in the way, or roll backwards, or get stared at by little kids. Maybe his ticket would be cheaper, considering he’d brought his own chair along.
    ‘Claudia,’ he complained. ‘Hurry up, people are staring, and the sparkly man says this show will change my life or something.’

    How little he knew.

    Summary

    If Shiro gives his heart away, he'll lose his soul.

    “Do you believe in fairytales?”

    It’s an absurd question for people like them. People who live on whatever tattered edges of fairytales still exist in the world.

    Shiro curls his fingers in the soft hair at the nape of Keith’s neck and tugs it gently. He doesn’t open his eyes, doesn’t want to look around the wagon that’s bigger on the inside and filled with lions whose souls rub against his own and a boy who maybe can fly. Those things belong in fairytales. If he looks at them, he won’t be able to answer true and say, “No.”

    That nets him a long pause. All the longer because Keith stops breathing. Shifts against him, half lifting his head and causing Shiro’s fingers to slip through his hair. “Why not?” Absurdly, Keith sounds almost offended. Like it’s a personal affront against him, specifically, that Shiro doesn’t believe in fairytales. “We’re surrounded by magic day in and day out. Allura’s part faerie. You’re cursed.”

    “Fairytales aren’t magic,” Shiro says. He knows this down to his bones. It doesn’t matter if his curse echoes stories he heard before. “They’re something else.”

    Summary

    Peter opens his mouth to say something, but Tony’s mouth is suddenly covered by thick hands and he’s pulled into the tent, and it’s only pure instinct that protects the boy hidden in his arms.
    The Captain holds a knife to his throat. “You shouldn’t be here, TinMan. The Master wouldn’t approve.”
    Tony’s jaw is released, and beside him, Peter gasps as metal fingers yank him from the shadows. Tony steps, to get between them, but Steve’s back with the knife at his neck.
    “The rules, Tony,” Captain speaks quiet and firm. “You leave, you don’t come back.”
