    Summary

    It's a new era of steam and steel, in which Altena's father Lord Travant has transformed their territory from a state of rural poverty to a landscape of thriving industry. Altena and her brother Arion seek only to advance the cause of their father and all who depend on him, but in an age where a bucket of Thracian coal might power a mill halfway across the continent, and the metal bands of the railroad connect all of Jugdral in a thickening web, nothing can happen in isolation. And some very old grievances are ripe to be aired, both in Thracia and in the Imperial capital...

    Summary

    Amidst the smog and winding streets lies The Roost, an entertainments venue and safe haven for those victimised by the times...

    Otherwise mistaken for a brothel by one not so bright individual.

    Summary

    “As forward as I have been with you this evening, I am also aware this dinner party isn’t the place to conduct business.” Mr. Tomlinson chuckles quietly to himself, shooting a subtle glance across the table towards their hostess. “And besides, I am sure our hostess would be horribly disappointed to learn that we went away this evening with a business agreement and not a mating one.”

    Harry, who had been sipping his wine, coughs harshly at this. He splutters, unaccustomed to such blatant statements about mating.

    Mr. Tomlinson continues to laugh quietly, clearly pleased at Harry’s reaction.

    “Mrs. Humphreys promised that there was an alpha attending the dinner tonight that I would certainly get on well with,” Mr. Tomlinson continues, voice teasing. “She assured me that we would have much in common since we both work with mills.” Mr. Tomlinson glances at Harry, eyes flashing with mirth. “Little did she know that would be where our mutual interests began and ended.”

    Or, a Victorian ABO where Harry is the owner of the most successful cotton mill in Manchester, and Louis is an opinionated social activist about to disrupt Harry’s world.

    Summary

    "'Death did not hold the name then that he holds now.'"

    In Mip's most notorious life prison, Death appears in a strange disguise.

    It had seemed for a while that the plan would work: a bold conspiracy by a group of idealistic prisoners and sympathetic guards to stop abuse at Mercy Prison. Then betrayal occurs, and Tyrrell finds himself in a new life prison, with new rules to be learned. No longer is he in a position of leadership; now he is surrounded by men who question his most fundamental values.

    He has new allies as well: fellow prisoners who like what they see in him, a healer who refuses to accept current conditions, and guards who may or may not provide the help that the prisoners desperately need. But Hell's messenger, Death, visits Compassion Prison, keeping his face hidden until it is almost too late for Tyrrell to recognize his touch.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    Alfor was used to the usual patients—children with fevers, elderly with joint pain, you name it. But due to Zarkon's involvement with the beast terrorizing the outskirts of the city, he starts to take in more and more injured volunteers who got a little too close to the beast's claws. He hardly expected to heal the beast himself: an infected shapeshifter named Coran.

    Alfor is thrust into the ongoing feud between the animals of the forest and mankind all while trying to convince Coran that humans aren't inherently vicious. The revolution going on in the city says otherwise, where people begin to view magic as an animalistic curse from nature rather than the gift Alfor always saw it as. With no method of communication with the wilderness, humans begin contemplating total annihilation of the forest—unless Coran is able to speak for the animals himself.

    It'd be easier if the people trusted Coran, but it's difficult when they can only remember him as the beast who nearly killed several civilians at the start.

    Summary

    When you get caught stealing...and you don't wanna go to jail...

    Summary

    “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Or, in Even Bech Næsheim’s case, for a male lover.

    Set in Norway’s industrial revolution, Isak Valtersen and his friends start working in a manor for a rich family. What he didn’t expect, though, was to fall in love with the family’s heir.

    Summary

    Yes, after a prequel, base story and six sequels, here's yet another Sense and Sensibility Destiel (no Jane, I can't stop!). It is now 1861. This year sees the United Kingdom establishing a base at Lagos in Africa to stop Central African kingdoms from slave trading, the Kingdom of Italy being proclaimed in Rome, and an event in the United States that will one day be referred to by some very strange people indeed as 'the Recent Unpleasantness'. In the peaceful Culm Valley, Castiel and Dean are in their seventies now, and have settled into a calm, placid and refined old age.
    If you believed that last one, I have a bridge to sell you. For cash.

    Summary

    Still another Sense and Sensibility Destiel (Jane, I hope that sound from Winchester Cathedral isn't you spinning in your grave). It is 1845, the year that sees the arrival of the rubber band and the departure of Sir John Franklin's ill-starred expedition to find the North-West Passage. The United States annexes the Republic of Texas as its 28th state, and a blight in imported American potatoes starts a terrible potato famine that will ravage Ireland and northern Scotland. Things in the Culm Valley are a-changing (as ever) but some things stay stubbornly the same, as a certain alpha who rules his household and estate - kindly do not snigger! - is about to find out.

    You sniggered, didn't you?

    Summary

    A blush spread across Keith’s cheeks and he gazed at the sweet pup nuzzled against his chest. The need to make a new nest surged within him and he wondered if Shay and Hunk would be willing to give him a blanket or two. He probably shouldn’t overstay his visit, though, because they might start expecting something in return, and he had nothing to give.

    -----

    In the era between the Industrial Revolution and the world wars, Keith is an omega struggling to stay alive. After losing two of his three pups, he is taken in by Shay and Hunk, a beta pair, and in soon introduced to the alpha Shiro. As Keith comes to realize, the veteran alpha is a lot kinder than he seems, and Keith slowly falls in love.

    Summary

    A further Sense and Sensibility Destiel sequel (for the love of Jane, someone stop me!). It is 1830. The cities of Liverpool and Manchester are connected by a locomotive-hauled passenger railway, London watches anxiously as the government wrestles with some weird concept called 'democracy', and in rural Devonshire, Castiel and Dean now have ten children, a new (yet old) house, and most of their friends and family. But even some quiet backwater like the Culm Valley will not be unaffected by the changes coming to England - and there are problems closer to home as well.
