    Summary

    A Sherlock AU loosely based on the ballad of Tam Lin because my love for Tam Lin runs deep.

    John is the omega son of the lord of Carterhaugh. He will turn 18 soon and his father will force him to bond with one of the alpha lords of the surrounding areas.
    Bonding is literally the last thing John wants to do though. He would rather ride his horse and have adventures.
    On one of these trips he meets a strange alpha named "Sherlock".
    John and Sherlock hit it off, but who is Sherlock really, what secrets is he hiding and will they be able to get their happily ever after?

    Summary

    James is doomed to spend the rest of all eternity organizing beads into bowls. Something about it being a type of meditation whilst improving his hand eye coordination. Is it really his fault that he keeps breaking off doorknobs and water-faucets with his brand spanking new bionic arm?

    And that whole other bit about being presumed dead. Then a terrorist. Then a cyborg. But, we'll not get into that now.

    There are slavering wolves in the night,
    Howling, growling, slavering wolves,
    Hunting in the trees outside of town,
    Prowling in the streets outside the house.

    Summary

    A modern, Hobbit variation on the Scottish ballad "Tam Lin", and an AU of the Ettelëaverse, though you don't need to read any of the other stories for this to make sense.

    Lorna, newly come to her sister's little town, hears far too many stories of (and warnings about) the forest at the edge of her granny's land. Naturally, she has to investigate, but gets more than she bargained for in what -- and who -- she finds there.

    Summary

    “It's like the old folk ballads,” April tells him. “They'll change me into all kinds of monsters and nightmares and deadly things. They'll do anything they can to make you let me go. But you can't let go, Ram. No matter what you do—don't let go.”

    Here, as he lies on the forest floor amid wild roses and fallen leaves, staring into the mesmerizing blue of April's eyes, it is easy to believe that he will be brave enough to keep his arms around her. But at midnight on All Hallow's Eve, with the shadows of barren trees looming above him and the roar of the Shadowkin horde in his ears, Ram isn't sure he can believe in anything.
