    Summary

    A glimpse of a more romance-focused version of the Saga.

    In this version, Darren was blooded at 16, so he’s actually 24 and physically 18 when he gets to Vampire Mountain. There would probably be other love interests, buuuut I’m sort of focusing on my ship.

    Ummm… pain. And spoilers.

    Summary

    Before, he was Kurda Smahlt. Then, he was... well.

    Now, what is he? On the outside, he looks just as he did when he was that most controversial of vampires, just as if that Council had never happened. Inside, he has formed a new identity in the shadow of a great young Prince -- but if that shadow can no longer contain him, what now?

    And Darren...

    !! Contains Spoilers for ALL books of The Saga of Darren Shan !!

    { Identity V characters are basically just there in place of OCs, you don't need to know them to understand the story. If you like the idea of Joseph as a famous courtesan; Luca as a vampire mad scientist helping his kind to survive in sunlight; Martha and William as detectives investigating a serial murder; Melly, Tracy and Norton as Arra Sails' vampire assistants; and Fiona summoning Hastur to mediate a vampire war, then... please read the Darren Shan/Cirque du Freak books first, and then read this. }

    Summary

    Darren sensitive about his hair, and Larten makes him feel better.

    Is this weird? Yes. I don't know what to say about this except I wrote in 2010. Yeah, I know. I was a whooping 15 years old. Why was I was horny at 15? God only knows, but no one ever really read this. I doubt there's a big fan base for cirque du freak but if you're out there, this is for you.

    Summary

    After eight years, Darren finally confronts his feelings about what happened at that Council — and about his dearest friend.

    Spoilers for what happens eight years after Council. Spoilers for everything.

    This was supposed to be lighthearted and fun, based on a little throwaway joke that Darren makes in the book with said spoiler… but they wouldn’t get to that without talking about the serious stuff first.

    You've heard of friends to lovers. You've heard of enemies to lovers. Get ready for workplace nemeses to co-parents.

    ***
    RE-WRITING THE ORIGINAL. Not just an edit - full redo! Same storyline, revamped to match the tone of Endgame/Bloodline. Now with more 50% character development, new and improved structure, and the same soulful fluff you know and love!

    Summary

    "Did you want to?" Paris couldn't stop the question. Mika shifted, and looked directly to his mentor. His eyes continued to speak of thousands of years and of pain- even more, the acceptance thereof. They flicked as he considered his words.

    "I-" he cut himself off. "Then, yes."

    "And now?"

However one night upon arriving in London he encounters a bloodied young woman named Mauve who has been targeted by twin vampaneze. Out of both concern and lingering guilt he chooses to protect her until he can get her as far as possible from the men after her. As he tries to get her to safety he finds himself getting closer to the young woman, as does she to him. But often where love blooms, tragedy and pain follow. But can Kurda really protect her?
