    Summary

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it; it is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

    On the surface, Le Cirque des Rêves is a wonder and a delight to all who enter through its gates. Its allure is undeniable: a mysterious travelling circus, a self-contained world open only at night, constructed entirely in black and white and full of spectacles and tents that defy reality and stretch the very limits of imagination.
    But behind the scenes, two young magicians, Will, the enchanter’s tempestuous son, and Hannibal, the sorcerer's vicious apprentice, find themselves locked in a deadly magical contest against one another at the behest of their teachers. Much to their dismay, as, as their ardour and fascination for each other grows, the circus that is their lives, their battleground and the testament to their feelings for one another begins to fall apart. And everything else with it.

    Summary

    After finding himself dwelling in the past, Jaejoong experiences a vivid nightmare concerning his ex-members. However when he "wakes up" he finds himself in another dream mimicking memories from the days when he'd still been a part of TVXQ. Confused, he stumbles through the dream, only to finally awaken in a world where everything seems to have changed due to decisions he'd made in his dreams. Now faced with the idea that he might have changed his future for the worst, he desperately stumbles his way back into the past to correct his mistakes, all while trying not to loose his mind, and his heart to the boy he'd once, and still very much, loves.

    Summary

    The newest attraction at the local circus is anything but an ordinary wolf. Clapped in chains and kept in a cage; he’s slowly given up all hope of rescue. But kindness can be found in unlikely places: and Clyde is slowly learning to trust that you might be the one to give him his freedom - and with it, his humanity.

    Summary

    In a world of color and noise and constant action, Dean often has a hard time grasping just how much calm and ease Cas brings into his life. It shouldn’t be this easy, really, not with how stressful Dean’s life has been ever since he joined the circus two years ago.

    But since the very first day, since the very first time Dean got to watch Cas perform in the ring, this has been his happy place. The only time he gets to calm down, except maybe for the few hours of sleep he gets every night.

    It’s been two years, and Dean is still not over it. Will never get over it, probably.

    Summary

    “For the record, I thought you were great tonight.” Dave says, giving himself a mental high five. Great opening line, he was off to a good start.

    Klaus’ green eyes twinkle, his lip quirking up at the corners. “I remember you.” Klaus lazily crosses his arms, leaning casually against the crates. “You were in the front row.”

    “Yeah,” Dave says with a chuckle, “had to pick the best seats in the house.”

    “I’m Klaus-“

    “I know-“ Dave blurts out, immediately wincing. Great, now I sound like a stalker. “I-it’s just, I’ve seen you all on tv a lot- not that I watch all your stuff or anything-“ God, now he sounds like he doesn’t like their act! Dave thinks, oblivious to Klaus’ amused smile. “I just, you know, the posters too and…” Dave trails off, face thoroughly reddened with blush. “I’m Dave.” He thrusts our his hand to Klaus.

    Klaus looks at Dave’s hand amused, then he giggles (giggles!) and takes it in his own, his long slender fingers wrapping around Dave’s thicker ones.

    “Pleasures all mine, Dave.” Klaus says, and Dave is sure he means it.
