    Summary

    Ruby Holzer is a clutz. She's can never seem to walk in a straight line for more than a few feet, and she drops anything that finds it's way into her hands. Her stepmother might pretend to have hope for her, but she secretly knows she'll never find herself a husband. Especially compared to her stepsisters, she always thought of herself as plain-looking.

    Ruby has always had a fascination for colors, one she got from her dead mother. She had a special ability, one that allows her to see the unique aura of each and every being around her. Ruby thinks it's a curse, but when it allows her to see a fantastic universe outside of her own, she begins to think otherwise.

    This story is loosely based off of Little Red Riding Hood

    Summary

    KaZe, FemZero, Princess (hunter) Zero, Prince (vampire) Kaname. Rating may change. "I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream/I know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam/And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem/But if I know you, I know what you'll do/You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream."

    Summary

    Prompt: Fairytale

    Cerberus is a peaceful Vulcan-Terran joint farming colony. The Vulcans live up in the sky, in their kingdom among the clouds, and below, the humans work hard to cultivate the ground. Contact between the two is almost nonexistent, despite ostensibly peaceful relations.

    The Kirk-McCoys are humble human farmers. They work the land and tend to their crops and animals. Then one day, Joanna's cow starts talking, and tells her to steal a Vulcan's robes...

    Summary

    Marked unlucky since birth, a survivor of infant abandonment, Namjoon has been raised and molded into an expert Huntsman: a monster slayer-for-hire and pariah of human society. But when a mad king orders him to track down and bring back a living siren — the last of three in existence, and one Namjoon has been searching for himself — for whatever reason, Namjoon finds himself drawn to the half-human creature and his enrapturing song…especially as he begins to realize just how alike they are in the eyes of the world.

If he ever met that blasted king, he would give him a piece of his mind- where was he supposed to find apricots on New Year’s Eve…?"

    Summary

    He had always been mesmerized by the mural - by the mermaids - when he was a child. He would just sit for hours, looking at them, his chest filling with some unnamed emotion… His father used to shake his head fondly at him, telling him stories.

    ‘Once’ he used to say, ‘one of the mermaids made a pact with the Sea Witch; her voice for a pair of legs. A world of pain, just to follow her heart, and the dashing prince who captured it.’

    ‘Did she find it?’ Stiles would ask him, eyes wide, his little heart beating hard in his chest.

    ‘No, no she didn’t. She turned to foam, and her soul rose to the sky to dance with the wind for eternity.’

    Summary

    This is a retelling of the 18th century version of Beauty and the Beast. It draws from the much more complex plot of the older versions, but nods towards the modern ones, and goes in it's own direction.

    Trigger warnings: Like the original, this version will discuss abuse, (past) sexual assault, child mortality, war, and violence. While none of this will be depicted, or discussed in overly graphic detail, I don't recommend this for children.
