    Summary

    In the winter of 2006, the Fifth Blight sweeps through Ferelden, killing dozens of people and displacing thousands more. Among the latter group is nineteen-year-old Kendall Hawke, who flees to Kirkwall with her loved ones and some simple goals: establish residency, help her brother support the family, and handle the delicate matter of her apostate sister. What follows instead pulls her closer and closer to the epicenter of Kirkwall’s feuding, a chaos threatening to tear the city apart.

    A twenty-first century retelling of Dragon Age 2. Features AU elements and a pro-templar, diplomatic Hawke. Tags added as they become relevant.

    Summary

    Bai Fengjiu has spent most of her young life circling the orbit of the much older, mysterious presence of restaurateur Donghua. Her teen crush has faded, overtaken by her work as a gourmet food blogger, line work at his restaurant Ninth Sky, and university student life. When he shows up on her spring break and blackmails her into being his personal chef she's forced to acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, her feelings for him are still there.

     

     


     

    Or also the author read the 三生三世枕上书 translation enough times to memorize it fully, and watched Eternal Love of Dream multiple times, and made a promise to my fellow fans that I would find a way to write the things missing from both the show and the original novel: 1) Bai Qian and Yehua's wedding, and 2) the steamy parts

    Summary

    Written for Seblaine Week 2020, Day 2: Modern Retelling

    The New Directions and The Warblers have been fighting for many years now. Not just because they're rivaling Glee clubs, but there's a darker history. Blaine has just moved to Lima not that long ago, and he thinks that this feud is ridiculous. But he's been warned. Do not interact, do not even look at a Warbler.

    But then he meets Sebastian.

    Summary

    Born in the 90s, university student, short and with lots of human friends: Persephone really has a terrible divine curriculum. Mortals don't worship her, Gods don't invite her to their mundane events, and all in all it would be fine for her. Or at least this is what she thinks.

    Everything changes when at a conference she meets Hades, God of the dead. His too is a heavy baggage: three hundred thousand years of age, seven feet tall, at least twenty titles on his name. But he's also the only one understaning Persephone's passion for law subjects, as well as the only one who seems uncomfortable among the other deities as much as her. How couldn't they get along?

    They find themselves intertwining their destinies and working together to issue a controversial judgement, collaborating in a trial of souls in the court of the Underworld. And so, halfway between irony and seriousness, fairness and rigor, life and death, this is the (semi) modern reinterpretation of a myth that has never stopped being told.

    Summary

    Fingon is investigating an underworld leader called Mairon, who is known to run sex-trade-based card games out of his home. When he goes undercover, he doesn't expect the depths of what he finds there, or to fall in love with Mairon's badly-treated slave.

    Modern AU version of the Fingon-rescues-Maedhros story.

    Probably closer to "Mature" but rated "Explicit" for themes, mostly.

    Summary

    In the original play of "Romeo and Juliet", Benvolio Montague appears up until Mercutio's death in Act 3 and then disappears. But what if that wasn't the case? What if, in an alternate and modernized version of the story, Benvolio decided that Mercutio was not going to die and no one else was either?

    Benvolio, who sees himself in the shadow of his more dramatic cousin and flamboyant best friend, finds himself propelled into unfolding events that will make him decide just how much he'll fight for love, family, and a peaceful Verona.

    Summary

    Eurydike knew immediately which one the god-born was. Him and his swagger weren’t hard to miss. He was sitting at the furthest table on the terrace - the one closest to the sea - and he was dressed in a black bomber jacket and sunglasses. The breeze played through his dark curls; his eyes were hidden under sunglasses, but were no doubt some brilliant colour like all the god-born. He had his legs stretched out and his feet propped up on a battered guitar case. Silhouetted against the waves, it made for a handsome picture.

    Eurydike scoffed. It was late spring. It wasn’t cold enough to need a jacket and it wasn’t bright enough to need sunglasses.

    --

    Just a modern retelling of an old story.
