    Summary

    The year is 1832, and Jean is a young village midwife, living a solitary life on a stretch of wild coast in the British colony of Nova Scotia. Late one night, a strange woman pounds on her door in dire need of her aid. The mysterious newcomer barely speaks a word of English (is that strange, growling language Gaelic?), but Jean still can't help being somewhat smitten with the comely, dark-eyed woman, especially as she comes to know her better. Muirin is clever, and graceful, and she might be hiding a secret. Maybe several--and perhaps her devoted marriage to the fisherman out past the point isn't quite what it seems.

    A historical fantasy variation on a traditional folktale, this story acknowledges the darker side of the lore it is based in--and finds a way to set things right.

    Summary

    God instructed Raphael to bind the demon named Azazel, “...and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may not see light. And on the day of the great judgement he shall be cast into the fire. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague...”
    That is how Crowley scored his point, in one particular round of ‘real or fake bible quote’ sometime around 2011, on a day off from their jobs with Warlock’s household: heal the earth which the angels have corrupted. He strongly disliked to bring the matter up, but he suspected it would work, and Aziraphale was not nearly drunk enough yet for his own good.
    Aziraphale could have sworn that the line read ‘which the Fallen angels have corrupted.’ He got out Enoch’s first draft of his book and everything.
    “Well, the Fallen bit was implied, all the Watchers were Fallen and it clearly referred to the Watchers, because what the devil would She have meant by it otherwise?” the angel had finally asked, frustrated.
    “Implied? Angel, you made this game. Drink.”

    Summary

    An AU based on 'The Village', Rus knows he shouldn't be in the woods.

    (If you've never seen The Village, I think it would be enough to know that the villagers live in an isolated community surrounded by a forest. The woods are forbidden as Monsters are rumored to live in it and any shade of the color red is forbidden as it supposedly attracts them. Thus, Rus shouldn't be in the woods, but the forbidden can be oh, so attractive, can't it.)

    Summary

    ”...That I am this lucky, and if someone asked me how we did it, how we traveled through time and defied death, and I was to be honest?”
    “Yeah?”
    “I’d say that it probably had all to do with you.”

     

    Or the one where Zayn and Harry meet in the summer of 1939, then again in 2019 by a twist of fate (and maybe some magic). Turns out there’s a lot more to love than just how much you’re willing to die for each other.

    Summary

    To the outside world, Queen Anne - and all about her - seems to be a fading star in the night skies: she has lost the heir to the throne, and her King is courting one of her own ladies in waiting. It is not so much a case of if she falls - but when.

    But then, a shocking turn of events leaves her a widow - and the mother of a Queen less than three years old. With few friends, and many enemies, she must turn to a man that she despises in order to survive, and hold a Kingdom together for England's first true Queen Regnant.

    Summary

    Castiel Jameson won't rest until the outlaw who murdered his brother faces justice, and Dean Winchester is the only man alive who can help him track the villain down. Some say Winchester is a cold-blooded killer himself; others say he'd been wronged his whole life. All Castiel knows is that the desire glinting in Dean's green eyes is even more dangerous than he is. Castiel fights to keep his mind on business, but during the long nights on the trail with the dangerously handsome hunter he finds himself dreaming of yielding to Dean's illicit kisses and losing himself in lawless passion.

    Dean Winchester is about to hang when Castiel saves his neck with his crazy plan. But dying might be better than spending day and night playing nursemaid to such an infuriating city slicker. He appreciates the stubborn detective's desire for justice, but he'd appreciate Cas a lot more if he'd stop being a lawman long enough to just be a man. He certainly has all the right equipment. Dean aches to run his fingers through Castiel's dark hair, yearns to know how Castiel's golden skin will feel against him. And before the coming of the next dawn, Dean vows to teach him the pleasures and sweet rewards of a Hunter's Caress.

    Summary

    He looked into each of their faces. “Tell all”, he demanded.
    Again, each looked to his fellow, urging his neighbour to repeat the taunts of the lady so that only one received punishment and not all.
    My lord grew impatient with their tardiness. So much so that he loosened his sword and drew it a little ways from its sheath. They shrank back before him as if one body. Their lord’s voice was low, and deadly in its tone.
    “I’m waiting for my answer and I swear by the Cross, if I wait even one minute more, this blade of mine will drink a surfeit of blood this day.”
    None doubted him and a voice, the speaker’s body concealed from the eye of the duke, piped up, “She condemns my lord’s treatment of a son of the church.”
    A harsh, bitter laugh which ended in a snarl passed Kylo’s lips at that.
    “Aye, and she called you a monster”, another voice added.

    Summary

    Crowley of all people should have known that the smallest act could ignite an awesome and ravaging flame. A small act. A single spark.

    He knew this. He had lived this truth time and again and somehow never fully learned from it. He was the one to flick yet another ember into the smoldering heap that had been England in those early centuries...How could he have known that this would be the spark that changed everything in the most significant and devastating way?

    Summary

    Princess Luna's return from her thousand-year exile on the moon has been one punctuated mostly by elegance. However, some things plague her heart about the new cultural standards of the realm, and its conflictions with her past actions. Eventually she breaks her silence about the coerced unification of early Equestria to none other than Applejack. Her honest depiction of the past runs contrary to the narrative that Celestia has put forth in the thousand years of her absence, and the truth the matter threatens to unravel Celestia's friendship with Applejack and her friends.

    Especially as more is uncovered about how much Celestia has slowly erased from the history books.

    Summary

    ""Excuse me, miss?" Looking up, Peggy saw something she definitely did not expect. A boy, standing right in front of her. Wild curly hair pulled into a ponytail, freckles all over his face, smart eyes, he was absolutely gorgeous.

    "Y-yes, sir?" Silently, Peggy scolded herself. After years of the three sisters all training each other to be confident in the presence of a man, all the 'training' had failed her.

    The man simply smiled at Peggy in response, which caused her to pretty much melt. "I couldn't help but notice a beautiful woman such as yourself alone on the fine night," He seemed to think through his next words, intriguing her. "And I was simply wondering if you needed even a little company.""

    Or: While Eliza and Angelica fall in love with Alexander Hamilton, Peggy Schuyler finds herself with a crush on John Laurens, and they have a story of their own to tell.

    Summary

    "Hydra wanted to recreate the serum that Zola gave to Bucky in Azzano," began Natasha, carefully. "Originally, they tried to clone him, but that didn't pan out. So, they turned to more traditional methods."

    The more she talked the more Steve wanted to retch as he stared down at the red-faced newborn in the picture. He traced his finger over her tiny little face as he realized what Natasha was trying to tell him. This was Bucky's child in the photograph. Bucky had a kid out there that was created by Hydra and he didn't even know it.
