    Summary

    Modern AU
    This one is about yearning.
    Twenty years ago, Geralt, Jaskier, and Yennefer met in freshman psych class when the three of them did all the work for a group project and bonded over talking trash about their fourth member.
    Now they’re in their forties and have to do adult things: pay taxes, go to work, and deal with their feelings.
    Jaskier and Geralt have been pining for each other since college. Yennefer knows. Jaskier’s sister Priscilla knows. Geralt’s adopted daughter, Ciri, who Jaskier, Geralt, and Yennefer are raising together, knows. Geralt’s adopted brothers and father know. Everyone knows. Except Geralt and Jaskier.
    Yennefer’s falling hard for Triss, the owner of the new coffee shop that opened across from her firm. She’s feeling so many clichés and kicking herself for it.
    The only one who has it together is Ciri, which is sad really, because she’s fourteen.
    Let the chaos commence!

    Summary

    It is only their second date when Arthur asks Gwen to marry him. They are lying on the grass in his garden, stargazing, the air unnaturally warm even for summer. Arthur is head over heels in love. He feels dizzy with it. There is no flourish to his proposal, just an earnestly whispered: “Guinevere?” “Yes?” “Marry me.”

    Summary

    Prompt: Nesta gets a little taste of sisterly revenge. 

    Pairing: Nesta x Cassian (Nessian) with an Elucien cameo.
    Genre: Fluff/Humor
    Rating: SFW 

    Author’s Note: Bouquet Full of Loathing will always have a special place in my heart as it is the first ACOTAR related fic I wrote and loved. Bouquet Full of Love happened soon after because I created a modern-AU vibe that I really loved. I hope you’ll enjoy the silliness that is Nessian and Elucien in this fic.

    Summary

    Dr. Daenerys Targaryen moves to Winterfell to take over the vet practice of her mentor Jorah Mormont, which includes working with the wolves of Winterfell- the Stark family and their wolf sanctuary. After a few months, an encounter introduces her to Jon Snow and Ghost, his service “dog.” Jon is used to being alone, preferring the company of his wolf Ghost to people. Until he meets Daenerys.

    Among a pack of unique wolves, away from the rest of society, two lonely souls who have always felt they lived in the shadows discover each other and find that sometimes the best way to communicate and to heal is through love.

    Summary

    The Right Man was saved. And Wei Ying is the one who must inform him of the plans that the Father had for him. If only the handsome hunter would stop trying to kill the angel.

    -----------------------

    "I meant:  what are you ?" the Hunter specified.
    Wei Ying turned and crossed her arms across her chest. "Don't you remember? Rude. I'm the one who grabbed you and saved you from perdition. " 

    [...]

    "And why would an angel go down to Hell to save me?" the confused hunter asked.
    Wei Ying frowned and approached him to probe those large amber eyes, the mirror of the torn soul, but still so bright, which he had brought back to Earth.
    "Why shouldn't I have saved you?" he asked.

    [...]

    "Why me?" Lan Zhan continued distrustful. 
    "We have work for you," Wei Ying replied seriously. 
    "You are the  Right Man , Lan Zhan. And you must prevent Lucifer from freeing himself from his prison. "

    Summary

    OKAY OKAY I will admit that this first chapter was massively inspired by Made In Chelsea. Anyone who has ever seen that dumpster fire of a show know that it's about to get...dramatique. The rest of it is not based on it at all though.

     

    This is one of the silly spirals I went down on Sunday and I just felt like sharing. Hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    “Engine trouble?”
    He looked up.
    The girl - woman? - young anyhow - stood a few yards away, eyeing him with a mix of interest and wariness. He took her in all at once, tall and bony and muscled, worn pack on her shoulders, length of pipe stuck through her belt within easy reach. Hitchhiker, probably.
    “Seems like.” His voice was hoarse; he hadn’t used it since the day before. “Sounded rocky.”
    “Lemme take a look.”


    Clyde's demons get the better of him, and he runs. Rey's had enough, and she runs. What they find together is a new road...

    Summary

    Once upon a time, Sansa Stark had had a crush on him when they were younger and later, Jon had developed one for her but their timing wasn't right. When he'd punched her boyfriend on Christmas Eve during his last year of school, he'd believed that Sansa would probably hate him forever. He was wrong.

    Twelve years after leaving Hogwarts to pursue a career as an Auror, Jon returns to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts when a serious injury leaves him unable to continue in his chosen career. There he'll be reunited and become reacquainted with Sansa Stark who is now the Head of the Hospital Wing for the school. And perhaps for once, their timing will be just right.

    Summary

    In which Wei WuXian thinks he's been playing the longest, most subdued game of gay chicken for years, and everyone just, can't believe he's this dense.
    Wei WuXian is adamant that it was actually Lan WangJi's idea, to the disbelief of everyone that gathered for breakfast, and they convince him to tell the story of how it started.
    But there's just no way that this is a thing, right? There's no way the Second Jade of Lan is a willing, knowledgable, active participant in a game of gay chicken with the resident gremlin of Cloud Recesses University, right?
