    Summary

    The Terrible Prince, Ivan the Fool, the heir of the White Hills, known as Belogorye, incarnates as the helping spirit into the bodies of different worlds' heroes after his death. The story had begun when he became evil and began to lure possession of heroes' bodies with cunning, just trying to find a way out of the vicious circle of his incarnation and hoping to understand why that happened at the first place. Emma Swan had this former Hero in her head as long as she can remember. The world around seemed quite normal, therefore the Prince awaited and relaxed, he even started to befriend Emma and share his wisdom with her.

    Telling Emma about Magic before she came to Storybrooke was a huge mistake. That's the tale about it's consequences and unexpected adventures.

    Summary

    Professor Rey finds life as an adjunct professor not quite what she expected. There is the satisfaction of teaching using her major and degrees, but the isolation and job insecurity can cause lacerating sadness, insecurity, and poverty.

    One semester, an ex-military student walks in late into to her classroom on the first day of school, and soon she starts to experience a series of emotions while he's her student. Ben Solo is slightly mysterious but also seems to contain artistic promise. Meanwhile, she is plagued by strange and tantalizing dreams portraying a dark fairy tale.

    Can Rey overcome a lack of trust created by her college-aged experiences to form a strong bond in a new relationship? And what of the opaque background of her student, who is at pains to seem helpful, but who also conceals his family life and history.

    Story is set in two time periods, late 90's and late 00's, a time of changes in social and economic life in the U.S.

    Summary

    Rey had long ago dismissed many of the more fanciful beliefs of her people, including that of the Ghost Moon. As far as she was concerned, the dead most definitely weren’t interested in rising from their graves to hunt the living on the eve of her birthday.

    There was one ghost, however, of whose presence she was certain, as evinced year after year on the eventide of autumn.

    It was said that he took the form of a man, but possessed the great wings of a bat. That he was enchanting to behold, with hair black as a starless sky and skin like rare alabaster, but that his mouth was a rictus of daggers stained with the blood of his victims.

    Summary

    It must be him Tobio smelled, a scent that was sweet and comforting, more a sensation than an actual fragrance—sun warmed hay and waking amongst soft sheets in the dawn light, wild blooming roses and a tender caress upon oversensitive skin.

    He was a Lamb. Tobio had never met one before, but he was sure of it.

    --

    First meetings, seen through the eyes of the Wolf.

    Summary

    In a world not so different from our own, a notorious research facility known as the First Order captures, detains, and studies monsters from around the globe. Rising in their ranks is Kylo Ren, a powerful telepathic empath who extracts useful secrets from subjects—the most recent of which is an unusual mermaid dubbed the Niima Siren. But things go awry when she turns his power back on him and the two form a most unconventional bond … with surprising results, not the least of which is her seemingly endless appetites.

    As William Shakespeare famously proclaimed, the course of carnivorous mermaid mating habits never did run smooth.

    Summary

    Summary: When seeking funding to revive her father’s dying firm, Sarah encounters someone from her past. And a proposal that chills her very bones.

    Gothic. Very dark take on Beauty and the Beast. Explicit sexual content. A strange amalgamation of fear and lust, horror and romance. [Warning -- disturbing content].

    ‘…ring around the rosies, a pocket full of posies…’ she whirled around until she was giddy--she collapsed into a fit of giggles ‘ashes, ashes…’

    The shadows smiled.

    ‘…we all fall down.’

    Summary

    Partly inspired by Amanda Seyfried's Little Red Riding Hood song, which I was directed to by IcyTouch. Thank you for making me waste my week. I hope I can make you waste some time, too. ;)

    A very pure-hearted, sheltered, young Konoe lives in the woods with his father Shui. One day, he comes across the devil of joy, who falls in love with his song. The thing is--the devil of joy shouldn't be able to feel love.

    Summary

    She ignored that, and used a false, breathy tone to match his absurd murmuring. “Do the lesser Folk still whisper my name, about how I defeated you?”
    Kylo’s eyes narrowed, and he managed to show everyone one of his teeth when he smiled.
    “If they do, I silence them. Your name is only allowed to leave my lips.”
    Fifty years ago, Fae prince Kylo Ren unleashed his Darkness and a Changeling girl stumbled into a world at war.
    The fascination forged between the two is only just begun.
