    Summary

    Billy Hargrove learned a long fucking time ago just how few people he could trust, and just what awaited a person like him in this big bad world. He wouldn't be burned again. His dad was onto him-- why else would he uproot all four of them and move halfway across the country? To some tiny little town in Nowhere, Indiana.

    Billy couldn't fuck up again. Not even when temptation lay around every corner of Hawkins High, with big brown eyes and a dopey grin. Billy couldn't fuck up again... but that didn't mean he couldn't get a little bit mean. He could show all of this fucking bullshit town who the real king was.

    **This is Season 2 from Billy's perspective, basically.

    Summary

    Maybe the moralists were right, Roger mused, taking a drag of his cigarette as he watched John lean over the snooker table to pot the ball Brian was pointing at. Maybe blokes dressing more like women and women dressing more like blokes were blurring lines. That it was the long hair and the heels and the quiet demeanour that were doing it, nothing else.

    Maybe it was because they’d been locked away on this farm for weeks without a glimpse of a bird and he was just randy.

    Or maybe he just wanted to fuck the bass player.

    Summary

    The movement of one tiny piece gives Robb Stark the chance to play the Game of Thrones properly, marry his Frey girl, and take back the North. His path takes him straight through the Neck and past Howland Reed, whose secret may be the key to winning the game.

    Or, alternatively, Ned Stark can’t restrain himself from banging his wife while she’s in King’s Landing and inadvertently saves his son (though not himself) from his own stupidity.

    Summary

    He still smells like Newt; bears traces of his recent nearness. Clothes sleep-wrinkled from the proximity, from the way Newt’s ankle has during the night hooked around the calf of Hermann’s good leg and dragged his whole body seamlessly closer. Cheek half-flushed from the face unconsciously nuzzled his into the side of Hermann’s neck—evidence of his presence, fast asleep, as Hermann lay still and fretful for hours an end, staring at the ceiling and feeling sick with wanting.

    [An early 20th century AU inspired loosely by Maurice and Age of Innocence.]

    Summary

    Thus did I find myself, when I finally regained my senses months later, the recipient of the care a great many professionally concerned doctors at His Majesty’s Royal Hospital at Monks Orchard.

    They call me mad, those learned men, a supreme irony, for they are the ones who natter on in ignorance, not I. Who is truly insane: the one who has seen what I have, or the one who looks upon a façade and thinks it the extent of what is real?

    The following, being the curious account of one Professor -- Shepard, lately of Miskatonic University, Arkham, Massachusetts.

    Summary

    (Fem!Percy)
    After finally defeating Kronos, Percy had expected peace, not a flash of molten gold after which she found herself as a twelve year old girl in a village recently reduced to rubble, surrounded by a forest and Ancient Greek.
    A little too much Ancient Greek.

     

    (Or, Percy is flung back into the past and gets a very practical history lesson when it comes to living during the Greek classism.)

    "When Leta was seven, she saw her father lift up her tiny half-brother in his arms. She heard him whisper the word beautiful over and over; a word he would never direct her way.

    When she was fourteen, Newt held her by her waist and awkwardly mumbled the words you’re really rather beautiful. It was the same tone that he used when stroking the mane of a unicorn filly.

    Theseus says you're beautiful like it's an indisputable fact, an undeniable universal truth."

    In which Leta learns that even monsters can be worthy of love, and discovers that her life does not need to be the tragedy the world has always demanded of her.

    Summary

    “My father is dead, Jon. My mother, my brothers, they are all dead. I am queen now.” She searched his eyes as she felt her stomach churn with nerves.

    Jon gave her another sympathetic look. “You’ll be a great queen, everyone is sure of that.”

    “I’m not worried about that, Jon. I’m eighteen now, and we both know that I will be expected to get married and have children so I have Targaryen heirs to take the throne when I die.”

    Jon nodded solemnly. He was trying desperately to hide his emotions, but Dany knew him better than that. “Daenerys Targaryen,” he pulled her close to him once more, “I knew what I was getting myself into when I fell in love with a princess all those years ago. But whatever happens, I will love you, always.”

    Dany sighed as she pressed her cheek against his strong chest. “I promise you, Jon, I will find a way for us to be together.”

    Jon's silence confirmed her biggest fear that perhaps they have never been and will never be a possibility. So, the first time since hearing that her father is dead, she cried.

    Summary

    "The Vietnam War was arguably the most traumatic experience for the United States in the twentieth century. That is indeed a grim distinction in a span that included two world wars, the assassinations of two presidents and the resignation of another, the Great Depression, the Cold War, racial unrest, and the drug and crime waves."
    -DONALD M. GOLDSTEIN, introduction, The Vietnam War

    Summary

So, what happens when a certain P.T. Barnum happens upon you in a bar late at night?
