    Summary

    It hadn’t been the eye contact that startled her, or even the instant attraction that she struggled to tamp down with considerable fluster. It had been the brazen candor in those eyes, the unhesitant confrontation that promised a thousand things in the space of a heartbeat. The look was simultaneously distant and intimate—the sort of exchange reserved for the privacy of lovers, utterly audacious coming from an untested stranger in a cozy little coffee shop.

    ~

    Bella Baggins thinks she's crazy when she starts seeing the reflection of a handsome stranger who's never actually there. Thorin is a King of Hell, the Lord of Silver Fountains-- and he's decided to claim her for his queen.

    Modern Demon AU.

    Summary

    There’s something to be said for the vitriolic blithering of extraterrestrial politics. And no—by extraterrestrial I am not referring to anything even remotely analogous with a Katy Perry song. (Worry not—I have it in good confidence that she will burn in hell within the century.) Extraterrestrial, for those lacking the acumen to properly interpret my phraseology, here pertains to things not of the Earth. The supernatural, so to speak, though I have yet to settle upon a term for such things which has not been sullied by the dirty paws of popular culture.

    Politics, as I was saying, were directly responsible for my discovery of Bella Baggins. She is, after all, an unremarkable creature by standards both celestial and demonic. While she may be possessed of her charms, it is unlikely that I ever would have noticed her amidst the grand scheme of things were I not lured in by the call of the Arkenstone.

    ~

    Thorin is the Lord of Silver Fountains, a Prince of Hell. This is his account of how he fell in love with an ordinary mortal woman.

    Summary

    Alana Bloom is a goddess, far from home and across the ocean. She ducked from under her mother's wing to explore the rest of the world and got caught in Boston. Away from all she knows, there is one rule: don't get caught. Some gods are friendlier than others as she quickly discovers. The god who finds her out is not so nice.

    Hades, Lord of the Dead, hides behind a pretty face; Hannibal Lecter, a long-time friend. But, oh, he's loved her a long time, and he steals her from the world above, starting a chain of events that could crash the world down, starting from the bottom up.

    Summary

    Thorin was gathered with his twelve favorite advisors in the antechamber, standing in a loose group around a tall roaring hearth. When the doors opened, the golden light of the hall cast a bright sliver across the polished marble floor, painting her figure in sharp relief against the darkness of Thorin’s chambers. The impact was apparent from the moment Bella set foot into the room-- Thorin and his twelve advisors froze, caught up in a collective stare at the dark queen who had just stormed their meeting. Bofur, who was nursing a goblet generously full of wine, even dropped his drink. The silver chalice clattered loudly against the floor and left a dark stain on the marble, but none of them seemed to notice.

    “Get out,” Bella ordered, gaining confidence in their long hesitation. She raised her chin and looked them over, daring any one of them to protest.
