    Summary

    Started as boredom busters then turned into a collection of fairy tale revamps featuring transformers. I've seen these before but not many so I thought I'd take a swing at them. Features stories inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tales. Features OCs as well as Canon TFs. Could have Major Plot changes from original fairy tales.

    Summary

    The dragon offered Katara a deal: protection for her family and tribe if she lived with it for a year and a day. And she said yes. Because what other way was there to save her people?

    Summary

    Crown Prince Viktor Nikiforov once had the world at his fingertips; he was rich and powerful and handsome, and he had everything his heart desired. Now, he is a Beast, imprisoned by an Enchantress' spell; hiding away from the world in the never-ending winter of his shame.

    Katsuki Yuuri is . . . odd, to say the least. Beautiful, but odd. While the rest of the villagers put one foot firmly in front of the other, Yuuri would rather loose himself to his dancing and his daydreams; always wishing for something more than his provincial life.

    Each is captive to circumstances beyond their control; trapped by unbreakable spells and impossible dreams. However, an unlikely meeting is about to change everything.

    Hope makes a final play for their salvation as the sands of time run out; but as Yuuri and Viktor learn to find themselves in one another, they also make discoveries that they're completely unprepared for . . . some wondrous, some wretched . . . and some treacherous enough to permanently tear them apart.

    For who could ever learn to love a Beast?

    Summary

    Snow White and Rose Red is a prequel to Snow White & the Seven Dwarves. It starts with the classic fairytale intro and then deteriorates into very nsfw very quickly. The Rose Red portion of the story was written as a gift (?) for a friend and has adult elements to her liking that were rather awkward for me to write just because it's not to my particular preferences, but maybe yours? To each their own. Please enjoy.
    The Hobbit/fairytale crossover AU.
    This is a work in progress.

    Summary

    You can't blame the Lost kids for what they had to do.

     

    Oh, you say, those poor, defenseless children. You put them there, left them with the worst criminals and abusers in the world. Would you expect anything else to happen?

     

    Good? Oh, Merlin, no. No, Good is not a concept in a world where the most powerful people once slaughtered entire armies. No, power is what is understood on this Isle.

     

    Good is reserved for people who can imagine a world past tomorrow.

    Summary

    The Sultan and the Storyteller were alone. “I’ve missed you,” she said, her right hand tangled in his tunic, her left holding his, and her head tucked under his chin.
    “Would you like to hear a story?” he asked, his other hand moving her hair behind her ear.
    “What story would you tell me,” she said. He could hear her smiling.
    “A story of love,” he said.
    “Do you know stories of anything else?” she teased him.
    “Of course, Sultan. Would you like to hear one?”
    “No. What is the love story you’d tell me?”
    “It is the story of a raven and a valkyrie…”

    Summary

    There was once, not so long a time ago, a gentleman who was very rich. He had houses in the city and estates in the country, lavish apartments tucked away in more countries than even his accountant was aware of, and even a castle crumbling away in a far-off land he no longer cared to visit. He had all the finest things, attended all the right gatherings and hosted nearly as many himself, a figure of respect and admiration wherever he went. His sole quirk was a penchant for powder blue suits, which unsettled a great many.
