    Eggsy Unwin had been born into a relatively well-off family.

    He grew up in a London townhouse on the nicer side of the city, his childhood funded by a grant that his mother had inherited after the loss of his father in the Boer War.

    However, after a one night stand with a man in a molly house, Eggsy is forced to move to the countryside to hide the fact that he's carrying a child from an unknown father.

    Summary

    A period piece taking place in between 1897 and 1914. Adora is born to a semi-wealthy family in British India, yet she longs for a life of excitement and adventure. Opportunity knocks and she is sent to Shanghai as a chief executive of an ivory trading firm owned and operated by a family friend. In Shanghai’s international zone hijinks ensue. She runs into Glimmer, an American actress who has run away from Californian society to be with her black servant turned lover, Bow. A conspiracy to remove foreigners from the city has resulted in a string of murders perpetrated by a terrorist group called the Horde, an offshoot of the infamous Boxers. All the while anxiety and uncertainty grip China as Russian and Japanese interests threaten to clash violently in Manchuria. As if the situation wasn’t stressful enough, Adora had begun to see things in the streets of the Chinese financial capital. Strange things, like a woman with the face of a cat.

    Summary

    "Growing up, Holland had been taught not to stare.

    It was rude. It made others uncomfortable. Polite little boys didn’t do such things, or so his mother had told him and his brother. In a few short months, he had unlearned those lessons. He had been happy to cast them off. Because, Holland reasoned, a beautiful painting was meant to be stared at. A finely done statue was meant to be stared at. Beautiful things were meant to be stared at, lingered over, and studied. Meant to be appreciated, admired, treasured as long as they existed.

    Kell Maresh was his finely done statue."

    Edwardian AU romance. Updates Mondays.

    Summary

      For a moment Giorno thought about nothing. Bright dew was clinging to Mista’s dark curls and the sun cast no shadow. There was no conversation, no chatter, no complaints or questions. Silence would have been suffocating. Instead, grasshoppers’ sizzling and some far-off birdsong became a comfortable tapestry of background noises.
      “You’re an unhappy man,” said Mista. He blew out a long wisp of cigarette smoke.
      “You’re nosy.”
      The man in the carriage seat laughed again. Giorno liked the sound of his laugh. It was rich and unembarrassed. “Spoken by the man who came looking for me before even knowing my name.”

    *

    Visiting Italy alone and burdened by troubles from back home in England, Giorno Giovanna meets the lively and low-class Guido Mista. Despite Giorno's reservations they fall in love against the backdrop of Florence's historical and natural beauty.
    But fate works against them, and some secrets are impossible to keep.

    Summary

    Lady Hermione Granger has been reared up in society, to marry well and be a good housewife, like any good Edwardian lady, but that's far from what she wants. When a handyman by the name of Ronald Weasley joins the house staff, utterly disarming her from the moment they first meet, he might just be the opportunity she needs to break loose and choose her own destiny.

    Lord Draco Malfoy has a secret— a dark, unforgivable secret he knows would cost him everything if it ever saw the light. But it's getting harder and harder to keep it from his father, because Draco keeps bumping into a pair of emerald eyes and a head of lush black hair, and he can't pretend his knees don't buckle at the sight. Which would be quite alright, if not for one small problem: it's not a woman they belong to.

    Summary

    Lord Aziraphale Fell, the Viscount of Whitefeather Manor and heir for the title of Earl of Sussex is a reserved, persnickety fellow much more fond of literature than the tedious song and dance of noble society. Although he is in need of a mate, he is plagued with the residual fear of a heartbreak several years past. Lord Anthony Crowley, the youngest and only Omega child of the Earl and Countess of Southerland, is a wild, untamable thing with a propensity for outspokenness and mischief, underscored by an intriguing disregard for etiquette despite the good breeding and education to know far better.

    Both are faced with the newfound knowledge that a True Mate awaits them out in the world, and are faced with the question: shall they remain in search for their destined partner, the other half of their soul? Or shall they forge ahead and write their own destiny?

    *** The turn-of-the-century nobility True Mates Omegaverse AU literally nobody asked for ***

    Summary

    Sakusa shakily turns to face him, face blotched with tears, “I feel nothing for women.” 

    The doctor, while shocked, has heard such things before, “Well perhaps you’ve yet to meet a true belle.”

    Sakusa shakes his head, “No, I don’t think so sir. I don’t have a standard for women….”

    The doctor waits hoping to not hear Sakusa is the worst sort a man could be, “But I’ve committed the gravest of sins with my fellow man. I’m of the Oscar Wilde sort.”
