    Summary

    December 2011. Michael Bublé's Christmas album has just hit shelves, holiday parties are in full swing, and it's time for Don Pedro's annual office-wide Secret Santa gift exchange.

    Hero wouldn't have needed Claudio's preference list—she's been mentally selecting gifts for him for the past year. But no. Her luck has yet to materialize.
    Beatrice says, "I hope whoever draws Don John for Secret Santa gifts him one hundred hours of therapy. Or some good street drugs—whatever kind make you really happy."
    "He has a lot of anger at baseline," agrees Margaret.
    Hero sighs.

    Basically multiple Shakespeare play happening at the same time, in a high school. I know it's cringey but hey, I thought it was a neat idea.

    Summary

    Hero admires her cousin's bravery and strength. Beatrice thinks her little cousin has strength all on her own, but Hero doesn't see it. A tumultuous affair in which Hero finds herself a lady in love, a fallen woman, and eventually dead (to her fiance) causes her to reevaluate the attributes it takes to be a real hero, and if the person a hero saves can be herself.

     

    Possible romance elements to come, but for now this is just an exploration of Hero and how I think a soft teenage girl might feel when suddenly thrust into turmoil for the first time in her life.

    Summary

    Happily ever after.

    Or is it?

    It’s been two weeks since John’s wrecked wedding and their daring escape. Illness leads to the connection of heartbreaking memories, and John realizes she is pregnant. With her brother’s men searching for her, and her lover overwhelmingly wanted dead, the two must struggle on, trying to find the course of action least detrimental to John’s sanity. But maybe Conrade sees more than John does, more than a heinous violation or torturesome memory, but an opportunity for something more... love, strength, passion, and endurance.

    Summary

    “What are you doing out here?”

    Benedick shrugged. “Just wandering about, you know, fresh air, and all. Running from bees, that sort of thing. You?”

    “Same—same idea,” Claudio answered. There was a tremor in his voice that sat uneasily with Benedick, and every ounce of his common sense begged him to turn around.

    “Are you… alright…” 

    His sentence trailed off uselessly as he was met with a scene that made his mouth go dry and his jaw slack with shock.

    Summary

    **TITLE CHANGE ALERT! PREVIOUSLY 'KEEP ME AS YOUR FINISH LINE'**

    He watches Leonato do quick mental calculations, already knowing the final sum. The governor might prefer Claudio as a man, might want to indulge his beloved daughter’s infatuation, but at the end of the day a prince is a prince, even a bastard one, and a count is just a count.

    Claudio intends to marry Hero. Don John gets to her first.

    Summary

    Messina is set to see its biggest wedding yet this summer — if the best man and maid-of-honour could stop bickering long enough to get it off the ground.

    An AU in which Benedick and Beatrice are too wise to be fooled by Don Pedro’s schemes, but too foolish not to fall in love anyway. Tasked with planning Hero and Claudio’s second wedding, they find that time has not yet healed the years and love lost between them. With any luck, they might even get some of it back.

    Summary

    John makes it several strides before he lurches to a halt, ripping open his sleeve with a hiss, his wrist burning. Where before there had been plain skin, he now stares at the delicate letters inscribed over his pulse.

    Summary

    John’s always had terrible taste in women. Except for Conrade. Conrade seems like the only respectable option. But, not in a romantic way, nope, completely platonic.

    Conrade’s always had to see them come and go, girl after girl, all the while wondering, When is she ever going to look at me?

    They just want a relaxing life. But being royal and a rising to fame celebrity doesn’t quite allow them such things. Love, jealousy, affairs. Cameras, magazines, microphones. What more could you possibly want?
