    Summary

    Summary

    It’s a lot like leafing through pages in a large picture book, or watching life being lived on the other side of a window. The glass is clear, but still a barrier. Objects are out of reach, though the acts that unfold can tug at your heart or spark a forest fire of rage. Or encourage a person to engender a certain numbness of feeling. 

    Mycroft Holmes lives a quiet, steady life. He works. He paints. He takes walks in the park. It’s what he does to ignore the flurry of partnering around him. Whether it’s the biological drive to mash two bodies together, or the religious dictum of the salvation in finding one’s Devotee, it’s not for him. It won't ever be for him.

    Until the day he meets a blind man in the park, and finds his carefully curated equilibrium upended.

    Summary

    Yet the singular passing beauty and maidenly majesty of the youngest daughter did so far surmount and excel . . . that no earthly creature could by any means sufficiently express or set out the same . . . the citizens and strangers there . . . came daily by thousands, hundreds and scores to her father's palace, and as if astonished with admiration of her incomparable beauty did no less worship and reverence her, with crosses, signs and tokens, and other divine adorations, according to the custom of the old used rites and ceremonies, than if she were Lady Venus indeed.

     

    When Nikolai Lantsov returns to Ravka after years on the sea to reclaim his throne, the last thing he expects is to find an ally in a woman about to be burned at the stake.

    Summary

    Hope not ever to see Heaven. I have come to lead you to the other shore; into eternal darkness; into fire and into ice. -Dante Alighieri

    He would come to her at night, long after Rey and her sisters had muttered their prayers on cold stone floors. Her lonesome bed had become a place of fear, like a child afraid of monsters. She laid awake until the early hours, when his encroaching presence preceded the dawn. A being in the darkness, invisible to everyone but her.

    Summary

    “I am not a foreign whore out to rule the men of this world with my beauty,” she snapped at her Hand, turning to look at him, and tilted her head. “I want them to respect me because I am what’s best for the people. That is not a difficult concept to grasp.” She took a deep and calming breath, mulling over what Tyrion had said. “But...what you’re saying does have some merit. If I could convince him that I’m a good queen, a good ruler who cares for my people, without him being distracted by my beauty, then that could only help to sway his brother, right?”

    Summary

    Oikawa swallows, grits out his next words through his teeth. "You've heard of Kageyama?" He sounds physically pained to actually say it out loud. "The prince?"
    Hinata has. It's hard not to, these days: Kageyama Tobio seems to be a household name at this point, a prince so beautiful that even people from distant lands flock to his city just for a glance of his face. Truthfully, he doesn't know much more than that—he's been spending most of his days with Nishinoya, messing about in the underworld. It's strange, though. Oikawa usually has an innate connection with beautiful things, beautiful people. They're his to watch over and protect.
    "I thought—I thought you'd like him!" Hinata says, and immediately realizes he shouldn't have.

    Summary

    All Eric Bittle wanted was the chance to see a bit of the world before he settles down at the family bakery in Madison, Georgia, for the rest of his life. So when he receives word that he's been chosen for temple service in Boston, he's secretly delighted. And a little terrified.

    All Jack Zimmerman wanted was to be allowed worship as a minor god of history, not to follow in his parents footsteps, who rule the Greco-Roman pantheon in North America. And not to host the annual Festival in Boston in he parents' place, especially with all the new acolytes arriving and Kent Parson among the deities present.

    A chance encounter and a dosing with love dust will change both of their futures - forever.

    Summary

    "In other words, he's just like the others: the fisherman whose nets have been empty for weeks, the carpenter whose own roof had collapsed on him, and the apothecary whose own supplements had poisoned her. Misfortune has visited every civilian with the audacity to pay worship to their youngest prince."

    Alternatively: a loose Dojae retelling of the myth of Eros and Psyche.

    Summary

    “He’s not even my type!” Rey watches Poe walk away and turn into a smaller dot on the sidewalk.

    “Your ‘type’ is a non-existent broody goth who wears black long-sleeves in a forest, Rey. I don’t trust your definition of a ‘dream guy’.”

    A defensiveness nearly bubbles to the surface, but Rey holds her tongue. Touché.

    After all, how does one say, My type isn’t just a “dream guy” but is also a “nightmare guy”, and also a possibly real-life teleporting kidnapper with a really deep voice and whose talents not only include being menacingly huge and having forest-transforming vocal acoustics, but also extends to communicating with sea monsters and levitating on ledges while confusing me, his kidnapped victim, with early-onset Stockholm Syndrome.

    Touché, indeed.

    OR

    Kylo Ren is the exiled god of Olympus, who stumbles upon a confused Rey whom everyone wants to kidnap. So he gets ahead of the curve and takes her first.

    aka the angsty Eros x Psyche Modern Greek Gods AU nobody asked for, but with a touch of crack and a side of redemption.
