    Summary

    "we don't have much, but we have each other."

    in between two fires, as well as someone whom you've only just met as a good friend and a muse. a whole lot of art in a whole world of growing pains.
    big long scorched earth epic-length one of those "life ensues" type fics that (somewhat) follows the canon of the music scene in junction with the world of art, from the dingy conservative mid 80s through the alternative 90s, the experimental 2000s, to the drifting 2010s—nothing too gratuitous and no weird shit, except for some dark academia/fairytale elements peppered throughout.

    Summary

    'There was someone there, in that darkness, someone hiding and observing. She heard whispers, quiet as the rustle of the wind.

    Ciri saw a great door in front of her and suddenly had an overwhelming certainty that this door must not be opened. That she must not go through it. That, behind this door, something was waiting for her...'

    Lady of the Lake goes a little differently.

    Summary

    Ellis doesn't know where he is or how he got there. It's only five hours to midnight, and if he can't return to his worst enemy, he'll die by someone's hand, whether the King's or his own. But the return is more complicated than he anticipates: he'll have to rescue a child - and, in that process, himself - from the depths of despair. There is more strength in him than he realizes.

    Or: Cinderella, emo edition: sort of

    I suggest you read the first installment, "Under the Covers", before reading this story. It will clear up the premise and let you avoid spoilers.

    Summary

    If you are brave, and venture in the world's wilderness, you can cross the Wolf's path and marvel at his tall shoulder, his golden eyes, and the thickness of his pelt.

    But the Wolf of tales is no simple Canis Lupus. He is the loss of innocence, the end at the end of all roads, night after day, death after birth, he is the moment of change in the cycles of life.

    He is, in short, an institution.

Will he be able to keep his end of the deal or will Lucifer claim his life? Will he be able to stay with the man he loves or will he live the rest of his life under the sea?

    Summary

    “A woman alone, head uncovered, is an invitation to sport. If you find yourself in that situation the only hope is to reach the Lovers’ Well, and throw yourself upon the mercy of the Mother of the Sky, beg protection from the Prince of the Forest. Run. Head down. Keep moving. Never look back.”

    Kylo Ren, Prince of the Forest, desires Rey for his own, and will allow no other to touch her. Unaware of his claim, she has given her heart to another, a simple woodsman, but Ben Solo is not what he seems.

    Summary

    Essek has seen the way Jester watches him. Watches him do magic, more precisely. He scatters gravitational pull like sand and captures time in a goblet and bites into a blood-smeared apple to ward against poison. All the while, Jester stares, violet eyes a-glimmer, hungry and hopeful in a way he can honestly understand.

    Even so: “Teach me,” she begs him, again and again.

    And each time: “No,” he says, and brushes the little princess away.
