    Summary

    Aziraphale Fell becomes the new lighthouse keeper at Eastgate By The Sea, after the last one succumbs to his illness. He arrives five days before All Hallow's Eve with nothing but a small bag slung over his shoulder and his precious books, and is met with superstitious tales; a monster that rises from the deep from Samhain to Ostara, and its master, the Dark Hallow's Man, who can be seen stalking the clifftops. Aziraphale pays no heed to old fishermen's superstitions, but he will soon discover that he's not as alone as he thinks out on his little island. What is the thing he glimpses below the surface as the storm brews? Does the mysterious past of the last lighthouse keeper, Jacob Abelson, hold any answers? Is his restless soul the one whispering Aziraphale's name in the wind?

    Summary

    It's the not-so roarin' nineteen twenties considering your bleak and overall lowly position in the world. Shifting between jobs as the town librarian and a singer for a speakeasy, while dangerous, doesn't bring much conflict or excitement into your life, most of it spent trying to survive and keeping your family -- mother, father, and sibling -- afloat. Things take a turn when a gun's pointed at your head, your saviour being a large goatman and his helper a skeleton, both who help you live undercover, unnoticed, and underground.

    If Echo flowers bloom in the Underground, then so can your determination to succeed, helping yourself and others around you.

    Summary

    He looked around his miserable surroundings. Dying shinobi littered around the green plains of the Kuro Valley. It was a beautiful place, surrounded by acres of forests and sharply cut mountains. He brought himself to admire the scene before him for a minute; he noted that it would have looked even grander if it wasn’t littered with corpses.

    Senju corpses to be exact.

    The path to peace is wrought with blood and often always arduous.

    Summary

    A Wild West AU.

    In this story set in 1872 Alex is a Trans (FTM) US Marshall on the hunt for a dangerous villain who escaped prison in National City. Last known location Midvale. Because only men are allowed to be US Marshall's Alex disguises as a man. The only people who know Alex's true identity are their sister Kara and Mother Eliza. But Alex always felt different from an early age.

    When they get to Midvale, Alex meets Lena Luthor who runs the local Saloon. Well Lena is everything Alex could ever want, she's beautiful, intelligent and owns the best whiskey in town! Will Alex win over the cool bartender? Or will Lena play hard to get?

    In this story Alex starts off questioning their gender but later on realises they were male all along. Hence the initial use of their and they when describing Alex. Later on the pronouns change to He/Him.

    This is to fit with how people were in the wild west, having done my research on trans in the wild west many trans people lived good lives in secret and no one even knew any different. So to everyone Alex would have been male with no questioned asked.

    Summary

    When Sam Chisolm made a deal to see Bartholomew Bogue’s death, he wasn’t honestly thinking about anything beyond that. So it’s as much of a surprise to him as to everyone else when, after Rose Creek, he gets called upon to make good on his bargain.

    4/1/20: Okay, this will take a little longer than tomorrow to get all the chapters up but I've basically got the whole story written, just need to finish editing. The latest - Sam and Billy chat about Goodnight.

    Notes: This is mostly about The Magnificent Seven characters and the TW characters (who come from a prior story I wrote) are very much supporting cast; they don't show up at all till chapter three. You should be able to figure out the TW backstory via contextual references and my endnotes, including TW werewolf mythology, so TW knowledge or reading my other story isn't required (although it'll make the in-jokes funnier).

    Summary

    Stiles felt overwhelmed when he caught sight of Derek smiling—because of him. A knot tightened in his stomach, realization hitting him that he was starting to care a bit more than he was supposed to.

    I haven’t seen him smile in a long time. I’m hoping you can fix that.

    That was what Peter said to Stiles the night he was brought to the palace. And now Stiles was questioning at what cost was he to please Derek.

    Stiles could handle the gentle touches and passionate kisses. He wasn’t so sure he was ready for the way his heart fluttered with Derek.

    Summary

    “You no longer hold the status as my First Knight.”
    That felt like a knife in her heart, but Riza had expected it. Harsh, but she knew the consequences of her actions and would accept them wholeheartedly, because it was for the King’s own safety.
    “You’re no longer a part of my court. Get the hell out.”

    Summary

    “Don’t you believe life is a very fleeting mirage of moments dense with nostalgia?”
    The other man snorted at his words, coated in honey, and broke them into figments of letters with one, slight touch. “I would muster an answer if all your words weren’t so hard to understand.” Like he did it best; he would wreck chaos and then build it to the perfect momentum. It was his craft.

     

    Two lone gods stand at the cliff of eternity, watching the world they once knew crumble in front of their very eyes. They watch, and they wait. And they love; in a manner that swears to tear them apart.

    Summary

    The Caribbean 1735. Captain Arthur Kirkland of the Royal Navy captured the infamous pirate, Francis Bonnefoi, and then rescued two orphaned boys from certain death—all quite by accident. It was supposed to be simple: take them back to England; the boys to an orphanage, the pirate to the gallows. It was supposed to be fast: just six short weeks together on a ship. It was not supposed to make him feel things. It was not suppose to make him re-evaluate his entire life.

The trade off of his dog tags to buying records and guitars leads Rey down a wild path of romance she never imagined for herself, and dangerous consequences seem to follow with each step they take forward in their relationship.

    Updates every Wednesday and Sunday.
    Based roughly on the band Aerosmith.

    Summary

    1951 - The war has been over for over five years, and Poe Dameron, travel writer and somewhat lost soul, finds himself back where it ended for him — the southern coast of England. There, he meets a beautiful widow with shadows in her past, and the two develop a powerful bond as they heal from their respective trauma:

    Poe's, from the war in Europe, and Rey’s, from the war in her own home.

    As summer storms build off the coast and the tension between them mounts, Rey struggles to open up to the gentle if passionate American who does his best to prove his steadfastness to the quiet young woman through his letters, his actions, and promises he has no intention of ever breaking.
