    Summary

    It wasn’t uncommon or even unexpected for the powerful and privileged to keep any sort of leashed apex predator as a pet. Often what made them dangerous to begin with was relinquished upon ownership – defanged tigers or clipped falcons.

    Loki fingers the golden torque laying heavy beneath his collarbone. That’s what he supposes he is now. It was spelled to him though, and he could not remove it. The craftsmanship elegant, the purpose cruel. With little else to occupy his thoughts he looks at his reflection as the servant works about his hair, plaiting and weaving it above his crown as is customary. She has not brought her gaze down to make contact with his reflected eyes once, terrified at the anger behind them.

    So.

    He is to be a harlot.

    Trussed up and begging for their amusement.

    Summary

    So this is being engaged to a fellow skater: it’s trying to figure out whose sweats are whose, writing competition dates on the calendar in different colored pens, late-night arguments over sequins versus feathers, running out of the really good foot plasters after the shops have closed for the night.

     

     

     

     

     

    The skating season continues (as skating seasons are wont to do), while Victor and Yuuri negotiate the shifts in their relationship, their careers, and their home rink.

    Sometimes, things even go as planned.

    Summary

    The happy couple’s relationship is shook by the very foundation when Robbie finds out that they might not be as happy after all. To make things worse, Glanni is up to no good again, leading to Robbie and Sportacus having to learn more about each other from the most unlikeliest of places.

    Or:
    How an already bad situation got catastrophically worse, and then it just went downhill from there on. The universe had it out for Robbie, he was sure of it. As if he was a mistake it tried to rectify.

    But, he would not go down, not before he'd had a honest chance to save Sportacus... Even if the man didn't want him back...

    "Any suggestions?"
    "Run," Íþró said and grabbed his wrist.
    Robbie winced, "I was afraid you'd say that."

    Summary

    They were just coming off the high of their sixth watch-through of Disney-Pixar's Coco... they were just coming off that high. They definitely did not expect to be falling asleep only to be thrust into wakefulness in a world that is really, really not their own. Not the culture, and not the environment... but most importantly...

    “Uh... what exactly is it that I've supposedly stolen? Can someone please fill me in on that... because I don't know how to get home without knowing what got me here!"

    Because obviously, they had to have stolen something... otherwise they wouldn't be here, right?

    Summary

    Ogedei (son of Genghis) Khan has a problem. Somewhere out in where-the-eff-is-Anatolia, his protégé Baiju Noyan has dropped off the map and taken his troops with him. Incoming reports have been increasingly sparse, inarticulate, and disturbing. Has the famously fierce Noyan gone native? Rogue? Insane? All of the above?
    According to the royal diviners, rookie intelligence agent Nerguitani ("No Name Girl") is the best candidate for the mission. Sungurtekin (the Khan's Anatolian spymaster and a native of the Kayis tribal lands where the Noyan was last sighted) privately thinks the diviners have been drinking more spirits than they've been consulting.
    Can a nice girl from the home steppes (with multiple options on not-so-nice) survive the dangerous company of Baiju Noyan and evade the wrath of his sworn nemesis Ertugrul Ghazi? Can she salvage the Khan's Western frontier before it becomes an epic Mongolian cluster... of embarrassments?

    Summary

    The idea was simple. To learn about someone, go see what they're like at home. As the third son of Balbadd, Alibaba expected nothing less than to be married off for political gain.

    He wasn't expecting the royal household of Mauritania to make the first move.

    The Fanalis are completely unlike any people he's ever met, and their heiress Morgiana Amenukal is a delicate, barefoot, pale-skinned force of nature in line to command a tribe hailed the world over for their brutality.

    Somewhere between the confusion and the culture shock, spending a year as an honored guest of the Amenukal clan sounded like a great idea.

    This is an excerpt from the chaos that follows.
