    Summary

    When Castiel was young there was a fire, a fire which caused much pain and grief for many, however, there was one shining light, one good thing that came from it; Castiel’s adopted little sister, Anna, who had been orphaned by the very same mysterious fire.

    A year went by, it was relatively happy for the Novaks, but just like all good things, it had to end… It ended when Castiel’s mother died, sending his father into a downward spiral, which left Castiel alone to take care of Anna.

    Eventually, they were found and raised by the Sheriff of a small town in Kansas. Years later Anna and Castiel would learn that the fire that took so much from both of them wasn’t an accident, it was arson, and that the man who had done it has a bounty on his head, a man by the name of Dean Winchester.

    They start their mission to track down this man who ruined their lives and the lives of many others, however, when they finally catch up to him, they learn that when it comes to Dean Winchester, there may be more than meets the eye.

    Summary

    Tony Stark was always smart, people forget that. He was always resourceful and far too clever for his own good. Only, before, he was angry and young and reckless. You could argue he's like that now, minus the young part, the only difference is that he happened to have friends that were the same.

    It was a stupid idea, created by bored children at auctions and charity galas, named ‘the council of the future’, alluding to their inheritances, how they are the future, how they cannot escape it — or, that's what Tony likes to think. Sunset rolls her eyes and tells him he’s being dramatic.

    Now, they're all older and less naive and a lot more hurt.

    This is gonna be something.

    OR,

    Tony Stark before he was 'Tony Stark.' All of those boring charity galas have to pay off somehow, right? Basically influential, rich, damaged children that are somehow friends, and all that comes along with it.

    Summary

    Raised in a well-rounded 1960s household, Rey grew up knowing what was expected of a married woman and how to run and upkeep a respectable home. As the wife of a successful businessman, she manages her daily routines based on the weekday, making sure a hot meal is on the table each night, and attempts to keep her life as interesting as possible. As laughable as it may be-- A rather easy façade to present as far as the other housewives in the neighborhood are concerned.

    With her husband always gone and his actions questionable, she finally puts her foot down. Enough is enough. Rey finds it in herself to reap the rewards of her own new found free spirit. One night of drinks, conversation, and dancing at a local bar a few towns apart. The evening concludes leaving Rey in a cloud of unrelenting regret after meeting a tall, dark youth named Ben. Believing her evening would end, the sun would rise and things would go back to normal, Rey didn’t realize her quick decision would soon follow her home.

    Summary

    "Губы Аояги разошлись со вздохом, и на мгновение Виктор увидел туманное выражение, скрытое под внешним лоском, мимолетное, как лепестки сакуры на ветру. Там было столько невысказанного, что Виктор хотел, еще больше, чем когда-либо, забрать этого человека с собой. Привести его в свой дом, подальше от сверкающего мира роскоши и грязи."
    Виктюри в историческом АУ, 1800 годы, Эдо, Япония. Юри-Аояги – высококлассная куртизанка-парень, а Виктор – безнадежно влюбленный.
    Занка – цветение (в основном, вишни), проходящее лишь в сезон. (прим. Автора)

    Summary

    "Be the water where I'm wading."- Lykke Li

    Kermit Tully, known to all but his lord father as Ser Kit, sits besides his flushed, giddy sister, talking and laughing with the other lordlings around him. He sits straight and tall, and his coppery hair gleams in the torchlight. Eddara is struck by his high cheekbones and the smile on his face; he appears genuinely intrigued by everything said to him. More than anything, for an instant, she wants a boy like Kit Tully to look at her like that.

    (Edda Stark meets Kit Tully at Harrenhal, and for an instant, life is like the sweet, sad songs her sister loves.)

    Summary

    She was the sweet little stool pigeon who fell in love with the mob’s fall guy.

    To the victim go the spoils.

    Rey was damaged goods, kicked around by the gang and used according to its whims. No one took her seriously, and her life story read like one long cruel joke. She was brunette dynamite, so they gave her the job of warming up Ben Solo, the master thief who just spent twelve years cooling his heels in The Prism.

    The girl was too young, but old enough to have a scavenger’s-eye view of her own bleak future. The boys were paying her to do a snow job on a candyleg, but she was beginning to love her work and love Solo, and she decided to stick with him till death did them part...

    Summary

    Genevieve Durand is a force to be reckoned with. An intelligent, fiercely independent, dual-natured and brutal businesswoman who finds herself in the company of gangsters and disrespectful men almost every day. When she moves to London for a new chapter in her empire, she finds herself very interested in the friends the father of her godson has found himself in business with. But how will she handle Alfie Solomons entering her life and turning it upside down in the most unexpected of ways?
    An epic (long) slow burn romance about the years after WWI in London with two gangsters trying to control their power and navigate love, family and pride along the way. Where will they find themselves holding their loyalty? And will their loyalty to each other falter as it’s tested time and time again.

    Each Chapter of this fic will have a song to work in unison with the story. The titles of the songs will be the titles of the chapters.
