    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 Her little sister, Rosamund is strong and socially-connected, while Snow is withdrawn and almost always alone.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

    Farewell to Once Upon a Time. I invite you to enjoy an easy banter, friendship, struggles and true love. Once again, and only if you let me. World of Russian fairy tales (Disney did it too, so it's not even out of canon) in OUaT. Prince Ivan the Fool in Storybrooke. And Emma Swan is not the same anymore.

    Lukomorje remains off the map,
    That's why there's no way
    Inside the world of fairy tale.
    That was just a saying for bond,
    Beware, Fairytale Lies Along

    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

    “My Storyteller seems taken with tales of star-crossed lovers recently and although I tease him about it I have found myself growing strangely fond of their tragedy.”
    “I understand, tragic lovers are a common theme in many popular stories.” As he spoke he opened the satchel and removed nine gold colored spheres from the bag. Placing each around the cushion he sat on in a circle.
    "If I may.” He said his eyes coming to rest on his other two guests although his question was directed at the Sultan, "Have you hear the story of the Raven and the Valkyrie?"
    "In fact I have, it is indeed tragic."
    "It is, how about the story that came before? That of the Fairy King and his Wager?"
    " I have not."
    "Then with your permission..." His hand came to rest on the last sphere he’d placed as he spoke.
    “Please,” said the Sultan.
    He smiled and twisted his wrist sending the orb spinning, a hum emanating from it. It began to glow and the other eight responded in the same way. All nine rose and began to drift in orbit around the storyteller who had begun to float above the cushion he had sat on. And his story began.

    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

    I was born Tabitha Morend, the only child and heir to a father not long for the world. I am the only daughter of a mother who I'm certain resented me and who did her best to remind me I was little more than nothing.

    Then I was Tabitha Morend-Amherst, a Viscountess and the talk of the Kingdom, beautiful and popular. I became the mother of two daughters. Then I was Tabitha Morend-Brose, taking yet another name when I married a second time.

    You know me, and you likely hate me. Everyone does. But then, my story has only ever been told from the perspective of my Stepdaughter...a pretty little girl with a predilection for cinder-smudged cheeks whom everyone knows as Cinderella.

    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.
