    Summary

    Terrified at the prospect of humiliating himself in front of the ton and completely ruining his first season with his crippling shyness, omega Stiles Stilinski does the only thing he can; he invents a sweetheart away at war. A completely fictitious and utterly gorgeous captain, a gentlemanly paragon of romance and adoration, an alpha with whom Stiles spends years "exchanging" letters.

    Years later, an angry, war-battered Derek Hale shows up at Stiles's door. He's no gentleman, and vehemently denies the existence of anything remotely resembling romance. He's received every last letter and has come to collect on Stiles's promises of home and marriage, no matter what.

    Summary

    This, of course, could not dampen the moods of Courfeyrac, who was notorious for his amenities, and was oftentimes compared to a ray of sunshine for his way of existing – he was boisterous, loud, cheery, good-natured and lackadaisical bordering on flippant. This young man of twenty-two had no care in the world as he shouldered the responsibility of jurisprudence and working a paid internship and juggling with personal conquests, which is to say, getting laid.

    (or, the adventures of actual toddler Courfeyrac on the playground of life. Kind of in Victor Hugo's narrating style!)

    Summary

    Britannia was always so fond of the chess board, the great metaphor for realpolitik. But the metaphor was not a clever one. In reality, a queen might dress as a pawn, and a pawn might dress as a queen, and a king might never be the wiser.

    Summary

    Armitage Hux (a well known private detective) is summoned by Phasma (a village police captain) to investigate the mysterious death of old Sir Snoke of Mustafar Hall. Armitage arrives at Mustafar Hall with his loyal assistant Dopheld Mitaka, where he meets the handsome and compelling Sir Ben - Snoke’s legal heir.

    Armitage must work out how Snoke died whilst around him people live in superstitious fear of the so-called Beast of the Moor. When Sir Ben’s tenant shepherd, Thanisson, is mauled, Armitage and Dopheld begin to work out the means and motive for the murder.

    The tricky part is figuring out who will be the next victim in time to warn them of their fate. While Armitage tackles this problem at Mustafar Hall with Sir Ben, Dopheld gets lost on the moor and finds extra clues in the form of three strangers from out of town living in a village nearby.

    Summary

    "A new overlady, you say? She's a little short and flat-chested, although her temper is impressively vile. Oh well. Needs must when needs must. Too long have the lands of Halkeginia gone without true Evil. There are fluffy bunnies and happy ponies all over the place, frolicking! It makes me quite sick! No, it doesn't matter if she wants to or not. Because Evil always finds a way."

    Summary

    From the tip of the umbrella emerges a lot more than a spark. It's a raging inferno, a fireball the size of a elephant that swells and burns, and shoots through the air, trailing sparks.

    And then we see Ace.

    Summary

    Like it says in the tags: this is Sandor's story from the age of five all the way through the Battle for the Dawn. It's better than it sounds.

    If you're here for the nooky, it's in Chapter 8! ;)
    Now completed! Choose your ending- realistic or happy.
    ____________________________________________________________________________
    Excerpt:
    There were two more raiders total, thin, angry men who ran when they saw the gravedigger coming, his robes spattered with brain and blood.

    Sandor buried the brothers, buried the proctors, buried the Elder Brother. It took him a day and a night; they needed so many graves, needed words he didn’t know how to give them. When he had covered the Elder Brother with dew-dampened soil he stood straight, stretching his back, and looked over the rows of freshly-mounded graves. “I don’t know if this is my fault,” the novice said. “But you deserved a better world than this one.”

    He went back down the hill and into his shelter. It had been ransacked, but as he had nothing valuable nothing had been taken. He changed into the jerkin and trews that he’d first worn while here. In a shed he found his horse's tack, his armor (still bloody, still broken), and his sword.

    He says he doesn't kiss and tell. So are you doing this or not?

     

    (This work is literally Robert's non-romantic route but with the fade-to-blacks removed and the scenes made explicit. The ending will be a little different! Brief portions of canon text will be incorporated.)
