    Summary

    All John Watson wants is the feeling of a freshly waxed surfboard under his feet and the hot California sun baking down onto his back. To finally go pro in the newly formed world of professional surfing and leave the dark memories of his past behind him as he rips across the face of a towering blue barrel. To lounge beside the beach bonfire every evening with an ice cold beer tucked into the cool sand beside him and listen to Pink Floyd and the Doors while the saltwater dries in his sun bleached hair.

    That's all he wants, that is, until the hot young phenom taking Oahu and the Hawaiian shores by storm steps up next to him in the sand in the second round of the 1976 International Surf Competition.

    Summary

    Edward got closer. He just couldn't believe how young she looked. For all he knew she could have been snapped away from Amestris just minutes after he had left her, never to return by her side. His brows knitted together from thinking about the painful memory. A gamut of 'what if's' suddenly invaded his mind and put weight upon his aching heart. Remorse was a cold bitch.

    Summary

    ABC invites you to the 60th anniversary special of the beloved family classic “The Sound of Music”. A tuneful, heartwarming story, based on the real life story of the Rogers Family singers, one of the best known concert groups of the era. Actually, it's the story of Antony Stark, an Italian monk whose best shot at escaping Reich controlled Austria is to become the tutor of the seven children of Captain Stefen Rogers. The hills are not alive with music, they are swarming with Nazis and Tony's not the only one keeping secrets or desperately trying to save what he loves. What he loves has gotten really REALY confused, but maybe he's not alone in that either.

    Summary

    Ariel would look back, almost a hundred years back, look back to her past and trace her sins and mistakes to that long-ago moment, to that desire to know more, to ask for more than what she was given. Ariel would look back with a thousand words that crowded her tongueless mouth, as the world turned underneath her bleeding feet and wonder to herself, was it truly worth it - all of it - to know what I know now?

    ***

    Summary

    (I am the one who says 'fuck you') - Benjamin Garcia

    Petunia Evans is plain, fretful, and unremarkable. Petunia Evans has always lived in her beautiful, vivacious older sister's shadow. In spite of this, it is Petunia who is the witch. The universe has made a grand mistake, and all she can do is attempt to make some sense of the sudden absurdity of her previously well-ordered, pristine world. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Marauders, and a war on the horizon all conspire to make this rather difficult.
