    Summary

    In order to please his father and honour his family Hoseok is tasked to hunt down and kill The Tiger of Geochang - a dangerous vigilante that killed and betrayed members of their clan nearly 50 years ago.

    In the far Western continent he encounters Kim Taehyung who is isolated within a small villa surrounded by dark, desolate lands and unwelcoming people. The young Count is eclectic and beautiful but is also terribly secretive, is shadowed by hooded servants, and is reluctant to leave the villa at daytime. He warns Hoseok to lock his bedroom door at night.

    Worse, something darker lies beneath the surface of the house.

    Summary

    The Great Morel, Deadly Nightshade, Belladonna, all the same plant. This is a brief story of how the eldest daughter of the house Dimitrescu first met and fell for the lady of house Beneviento and how they loved hard and as long as they could. It begins with a foolhardy attempt to cover a mistake that leaves Bela mortally wounded and alone in the woods facing an angry villager who smells blood. Donna Beneviento intervenes and takes Bela in while she heals. She is taken with the mute and veiled woman who seems to speak only through her eccentric, living doll.

    They strike up an intimate friendship as Donna allows Bela to pull back the layers she has set to keep the world out. Bela learns why Donna keeps herself so hidden, why Alcina is so protective and the true dangers in the valley. After returning to her family, winter keeps Bela from returning to the misty valley of house Beneviento. She exchanges a season of letters with Donna as their relationship grows beyond a serendipitous friendship.

    Summary

    Rey Niima knows she can’t refuse any job opportunity that comes her way. As an Omega desiring financial independence, her position of nanny to a motherless little girl will give her much needed stability. And then Rey meets her boss and all her good intentions turn to dust. The newly widowed Kylo Ren is angry, uncouth and so very, very Alpha that Rey can barely stand to be in the same room as him. What was supposed to be a dream position is suddenly a ticking timebomb of pheromones and complications. All Rey wants to do is run away from this moody Alpha and the effect he has on her… except she might be exactly what he needs to rebuild a fractured home.

    Summary

    Этот мир никогда не был ни к кому из них дружелюбен. Ни к поручику жандармерии, ни к юным детям лорда, ни, в особенности, к танцовщице кабаре. Но все они пытаются не сломаться под давлением и выжить - и, может быть, хоть что-то выгадать, урвать хоть крошку счастья у жестокой судьбы.

    Summary

    Grim can see dead people. As a foster kid who slips out in at the drop of the hat to give first aid, (injuries stick around post-mortem, which sucks) this is a problem.

    But turns out both abilities come in handy during an alien invasion. Or Iron Man's botched Expo. Or a pirate cosplayer funded by the government in your living room at two am.

    Summary

    Hi! This story is a modern take that places our Sidlotte in a somewhat Hitchcock mixed with gothic novel-inspired tale. At least that’s what I had in mind 🙃. Let’s see if it works! I don’t want to give too much away in the summary.

    If this Sidlotte story has been done already, apologies! I haven't read all the great works out there yet!

    As with everything I’ve put on AO3, there will be a HEA after some twists and turns. I typically update one or two times per week, work permitting. For those interested…Butter is included 😊 as if I had a choice!

    Oh, and it’s rated mature but I’m really bad at ratings so there might (will) be some E as well…and typos (is that the T rating?), there will be unintended typos—consider it part of the mystery we can all solve!

    Summary

    “G-George?” The human of the duo rasped out before his brain could catch up to the impossibility of that suggestion.

    A parrot could not have been his long-forgotten friend-turned-acquaintance. His deceased acquaintance. That is ridiculous. Outright insane.

    -
    Or: Trucker-coder Dream moves far away from his parents jut to be reunited with his ex-best friend, whose death has been haunting him for months, in a rather odd manner.

    Summary

    A recent doctor graduate, Claude Von Riegan is eager to make his mark on the world. He hopes that his research disproves the existence of vampires, and that vampirism is, in fact, a medical condition. To achieve this he travels to Fhirdiad, where he works alongside his assistants, Mercedes and Marianne.

    During his stay he provides medical care to those of impoverished communities, but his work becomes significantly harder when victims of bloodloss turn up dead on the streets, their necks bitten. The town believes the residents of a derelict manor up on the hill are to blame. Vampires, they say, siblings under the name of Edelgard and Dimitri.

    Claude has always considered himself a nonbeliever of folklore, but after becoming acquainted with both siblings, he discovers that truth is hard to find.
