    Summary

    While awaiting Benedick's chosen punishment for his deception of Claudio, regarding Hero's virtue, Don John devises a way to manipulate me into aiding his escape from the prison tower where he is being held with his followers, Conrade and Borachio. However, when Conrade seeks revenge over his master's rejection, Don John soon finds himself shackled to me, making his escape difficult with a weighty girl, whom is hopelessly in love with him, in tow.

    When Don John soon finds his melancholy nature warming to me, though, he might find his punishment all on his own without any help from Don Pedro, Claudio, Benedick or anyone else in Messina!

    Meanwhile, Benedick and Beatrice long for a return to the fiery sparring relationship of their past.

    Summary

    Due to a series of communication failures the summer before junior year, Beatrice Mui and Beni Murayama speak to each other only in arguments, whether at church group or in English class zoom. Believing the two are secretly in love, their friends conspire in their quarantine boredom to make the two of them fall for each other, in a socially distanced fashion, of course.

    Much Ado About Nothing, but it's teenage lesbians on video chats.

    Summary

    It's not love that moves the stars, now that humanity has taken them, it's trade. It's the haves and have nots. It's the secrets. It's the little things.
    Vesta isn't a place where there's much to have, or much to trade, but it's theirs, and what they have, they'll hold.
    It's not a place for softness, or pity, or second chances.

    Summary

    literally my favourite shakespeare play (even tho I've only read this one & Macbeth fully, the others I've read the adaptations; and hoping to get on to reading As You Like It soon enough) because I seriously can't get enough of Bennetrice - and yes, I did read all the fics on A03 as well as on fanfiction.net. I'm a junkie.

    also I like writing jelly characters soooo <3 here u go, dk if you'll enjoy it. mostly bc claudio and I don't see eye to eye. skrt. modern english, because if i tried writing in old english i'd be a disgrace to shakespeare. thou doth understand my plight.

    Summary

    “Fancy seeing you here,” Ben said. His smirk said it was anything but – he, at least, had known about their living arrangements for the year.

    Bea counted to five again. “It’s one in the afternoon.”

    “Not my time,” Ben said, and he slurped his beer loudly. Even three floors down she could hear the rattle of the beer in the can through his straw.

    “Yes, true,” Bea said. She put a hand on her hip. “So, they let you back into the country, hm?”

    “Low blow,” Ben said cheerfully. “A lazy shot. But yes, I am here, yet again. You may lavish me with your post-summer tidings.”

    “I’m going to key your fucking car.”

    “I’ve missed you, too, Bea.”

    Or, a modern college AU of Much Ado.

    Summary

    "If I had only the ship to face him in his fleet, in his flight from truth, where I might burn the proof of his injustice into his skin with searing light. But, no, I am trapped upon this ground, and can only face him as a snake, hidden beneath the grass, with the fury to kill but without the wings to fly my victory justly through the sky."

    Summary

    How long had they been circling each other, bickering and arguing and eclipsing one another, waiting to finally align? Like magnets spinning endlessly until snapping to attention, two compasses veering wildly before finding north again.

     

    Before things fell into place, though, Bea and Ben needed to mess up, and mess up again, and again (and again).

    (A series of oneshots - the story is marked complete and most should stand alone. Requests are accepted!)

    (A prequel to Bea and Ben: A College of Wit-Crackers).
