    Summary

    Someone once said that there is only one story, one true story, and all the stories told after it are just working their way through familiar channels, riverbeds curved securely into rock. A thousand princesses sleep for a hundred years - a thousand witches lock children into ovens - a thousand lovers run across fields, playing their musical instruments and singing sadly about all the chances they didn’t know they had.

    Summary

    Princess Snow White lost her mother when she was two and her father when she was fourteen. She spent her entire youth learning how to run a kingdom worn to exhaustion by a long and drawn-out war. Her little sister, Rosamund is strong and socially-connected, while Snow is withdrawn and almost always alone.

    Is it any wonder that the noblewoman who becomes her stepmother is so warm, so kind, that Snow falls right into her trap?

    Beaten down by years of emotional manipulation, estranged from the sister who doesn't understand how she can be so weak and so easy to use, how long before Snow reaches her breaking point? Will it even make a difference when she does?

    (Story's not as dark as the summary sounds)

    Summary

    After Yuuri Katsuki's father dies, his step-father and his brothers move them back to their native country far across the great sea. Yuuri has better things to worry about than being made a servant by his "family". Such as the Dark Bond that his step-father placed upon him to control him. If he doesn't find a way to have it severed, it could kill him, or worse... it could destroy the one he bonds to.

    Viktor Nikiforov has always been a romantic at heart. He dreams about not just having a bondmate, but a soulmate, someone who was made just for him. As a prince, he is pressured to accept suitors and marriage alliances. But after finding Yuuri Katsuki, he will never let go, even if it kills him.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, the youngest son of Odin, Loki Laufeyson, was imprisoned in the highest room of the tallest tower, ne'er to be seen again. The arrival of a stranger put everything to the test... and for a while it seemed as though they'd passed. A whole year later sees the rumour of nuptials circulating amongst the palace walls, amongst other rumours. Somebody is looking for you, somebody you thought was lost to the wind many moons ago. Adventure once again appears to be on the horizon.

    However, not all is as well as it seems.

    There was more than met the eye in the deal that Odin made, all those years ago. Ends were left loose and promises were not kept. Friends, both old and new, must face an enemy unlike any other as sons are forced to pay for the sins of the father. The bonds of friendship and, more importantly, of family will be tested to their limits.

    Summary

    It is difficult to be the last skin changer in existence. Even if Beorn were to venture into the towns of Men or elsewhere, he was often stared at for his giant stature and wild face. Despite his appearance and temperament, Beorn has always been kind to whomever he met. Even to those who wished him harm (though he wasn’t likely to lie down for his enemies either). But that changes when he finds a wounded Elf-maid from a battle and saves her life. He didn’t expect to win her love in return.

    Summary

    Arthur knows he used to love his husband. He used to love Owain- he can remember when his heart fluttered around his husband, when the very mention of Owain's name could make Arthur's heart race.

    (Owain used to call him pra- no, clot- no, Arthur can’t quite remember the way he used to tease. He can only remember the feeling of respect and love between him and his husband on the night they were married, the amount of fun they were having.)

    Now, everything feels wrong when it comes to his husband. His husband’s lips taste like ale instead of strawberries. His hands are the wrong size in Arthur’s, too large, and his eyes are too cold. His ears are too small, his words too harsh, his magic not right-

    Arthur frowns in the middle of the hunt. Magic? His husband doesn’t have magic. No one in the court has magic, not since Morgana betrayed them all.

    “Princess?” Gwaine asks, brow furrowed in concern, “You all good?”

    Arthur nods, ignoring the jibe for once. “I’m just fine,” he says.

    There’s something missing. There is someone, some voice, some laugh, that isn’t here.

    (And it’s driving Arthur insane.)

    Summary

    A retelling of Cinderella, taking place in a faraway land called Pumpkingdom.

    Young Aslan is devastated after his brother dies. Forced to become a slave in his own house, he must put up with the teasings of his cousins and obey his uncle's every command. One fateful day, an invitation from the castle arrives on his doorstep. With the help of his Fairy Godbro, (and perhaps a little magic), Aslan will need more than a pair of sparkly shoes if he wants to break free of his uncle's grasp, and maybe even win the heart of the gentle and kind (and dashingly cute!) Prince Eiji.

    Or,

    Aslan is Cinderella, Eiji is the Prince, Shorter is Fairy Godbro, and Golzine is still evil.

    Summary

    If you told me the way, I would have sought you -- that I surely would have been allowed to do. Even if it were east of all the suns, and west of all the moons in the galaxy.

    Despite Galen Erso’s pragmatism, Jyn always loved fairy tales and would stay up late into the night reading furtively on an old datapad that had been her mother’s. One of her favorite tales involved a legendary creature, a white bear, sweeping a young girl away on an adventure.

    No white bear ever came to take Jyn on an adventure, but a man in a white cape did.

    Summary

    Dongmin has been told his whole life that he's pretty.

    ("Bin, I'm not-"

    "Shut up, Dongmin. You're basically a model. If you weren't like my brother, I'd totally-"

    "But we are, so that's gross. Besides, I don't think Minhyuk would like you saying that."

    "Stop deflecting! This is about you and your chronic self-esteem issues!")

    He's kind of sick of it.

    But he's got a plan.

    Summary

    My own retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story (although I did like the part about Belle being an inventor).

    Belle is a young girl who lives in a small town, working to teach young boys how to read and write at Sunday school. Outside of church, she works tirelessly to care for her Papa in their crumbing farmhouse as best she can. Taking any odd-job she can to make ends meet, it's no wonder that people dismiss her as what her reputation claims she is. A whore.

    One day an announcement is posted up in the village square; every eligible Maiden between the ages of 16-25 shall put their name forth for special selection by the Lord and Lady of the nearby Castel Da Firenze. The conditions are that she will leave her current life behind forever. Not thinking she has a hope in Hell, Belle sends off her scroll and continues with her work.
    When she is selected at the end of March no one is more shocked than Belle. However, she will only go to the castle as long as her conditions are met.

    How will she cope when she comes face-to-face with the truth behind the castle?

    [Rating will change in later chapters.]
