    Summary

    Young Bilbo Baggins has a turbulent encounter with an odd creature in the snow a few years after the Fell Winter took his parents. It had been injured and seemed to be starving, and Bilbo, in a fit of Tookish foolishness, takes it in.
    As it turns out, the creature is a dwarf, but dirtier than any faunt could ever hope to be, with fingernails like claws, a bearskin over his shoulders and manners like a wild beast. His frustrating guest refuses to bathe, or sleep anywhere but the floor, growls more than he talks, and keeps his many fearsome weapons constantly within reach.
    And when the winter storms start to rage outside, Bilbo has no choice but to share his smial with this possibly mad and rather dangerous dwarf.
    Just what has he gotten himself into?

    Summary

    You know Beauty and the Beast. You know the story of Hades and Persephone. This tale is neither the myth nor the fairy tale, but both. There will be magic and a curse, gods and goddesses both wicked and benign, a mysterious palace, a talking fire and a three-headed dog. In this story, true love's kiss might not be enough to save it all.

    Summary

    Everything you know about fairytales is a lie. The stories aren't true.

    Little Red Riding-Hood didn't get devoured, the wolf didn't eat the old lady or trick them.

    They forgot to mention during bedtime tales that Little Red is a beast. That her cloak is a death omen or protection and you don't get to choose which one falls on you.

    Oh but the wolf? He would love to ravage her skin, his desire not suitable for your childhood fairytale.

    Little Red is about to go on a mission along with the big bad wolf and their team of fairy tale characters.

    There's no silver lining in this fairy tale. Because things are about to get bloody.

    ----

    "Do they actually call you Little Red," Hand around throat the wolf sneers at her so close that she can feel warm breath on her neck.

    "Do they actually call you a Big Bad Wolf?" Came Little Reds reply. "Medium and Cocky Wolf is more realistic."

    A growl sounds out, "Watch your mouth."

    A twisted smile plays on her lips, "Whatever for Wolf?"

    "Well Red," Leaning down over her indeed little frame the wolf speaks against her skin. "If you keep antagonizing me I may have to take a bite."

    Edith Watts's passion is painting wintry landscapes and wildlife thriving in the American wilderness. But after being commissioned by the charming, albeit annoying and secretive, Mason Verger to paint his portrait, she is swept away to his luxurious manor with a wonderous garden and view of the Appalachian Mountains, and is seduced into becoming his bride.
    What seems like a perfect, fairytale marriage begins to fall apart, however, after an encounter with (in)famous psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter that leaves Mason severely disfigured and paralyzed. His desire for an heir becomes more vehement and his newfound bloodlust makes him more dangerous.
    With this fairytale illusion destroyed and monsters (as well as dark secrets) being revealed, Edith is done trying to be the loving wife she swore to be and, with the assistance of an old friend, plots Mason's downfall.
    No longer shall Edith Verger be the Boar's Bride.

    Summary

    Good Omens Cinderella Alpha Omega AU

    From the far end of the ballroom the Prince’s eyes suddenly locked on Crowley. He raised his arm up slowly to the dias Crowley was on, his hand held out beseechingly. Shuddering under the intensity of that blazing gaze, his conflicting instincts to flee and move closer settled as Crowley suddenly knew with a clarity that brought a calm wash soothing over the jagged edges of his seething emotions that he was incapable of not going to the bright Alpha calling to him silently.

    Just breathe. He inhaled shakily and began descending the steps down. Prince Aziraphale mirrored him, stepping forward with slow purposeful steps. The sea of nobles between them parted as if by magic in the spreading silence of the ballroom as they moved closer. He stopped at the edge of the dance floor, his hand slowly rising to settle in the Prince’s outstretched one. The touch felt grounding, soothing the inner burning longing searing his insides at the sensation of being held, even if only by the curl of the firm fingers beneath his own. The Prince looked at Crowley’s face searchingly and then asked quietly, in a voice ringing with steady intent, “May I have this dance?”
