    Summary

    Chapter 37 posted 9/16

    John Winchester, leader of the popular Insurrectionists party, is executed after falsely pleading guilty to various crimes and agreeing to turn his young sons over to his rivals for 20 years of indentured servitude. He left behind just one peculiar clue for his stunned successor: a phone number for Bobby Singer, fiercely loyal agent of the enemy Opportunists.

    Castiel Novak is desperate to rescue the boys and restore his party's power and reputation, but first must overcome Bobby's utter refusal to help him figure out John's true motives for his inexplicable final actions.

    [AU political thriller. Timeline is altered so that John and Castiel have known each other since Dean was 6. Much more to come, will add tags as I go]

    Summary

What follows would be a romantic comedy, if it weren’t for the fact that the main characters are Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton.

    Act I now complete!

    Summary

    Once, Maximilien Robespierre had been certain that the Revolution must be close to achieving its goals. The ongoing wars, the shifting of the factions and the deluge of plots, lies and false-friends have disabused him of that notion. The time has come to face the hardest choice imaginable and fight within the Convention, the Committee and the Jacobin Club to secure the Republic and its people, and defend his companions, his beloved friend and everything he holds dear.

    Summary

    Four months after the Homecoming dance, Peter Parker's life is largely unchanged. Ned knows his secret now, and so does Aunt May, which means there are a few more rules and a few more consequences, but there's been radio silence from Tony Stark. Peter isn't really bitter; he knows the man is busy, and that his own work is hardly consequential, but still... it'd be nice to hear something.
    One day, he does. It isn't what he expects. It isn't what Tony expects, either.
    Both drawn together and pulled apart by past trauma, Tony and Peter attempt to navigate their now connected lives. New threats are faced while politics rage, and eventually words are the greatest threat of all. Words, and the ever-looming possibility of a real, actual future. Maybe, for Tony, all hope isn't lost. Maybe, for Peter, there's a whole new adventure looming before him; growing up.
    Because there's a question lurking within both men. A terrible, burning question, and the search for its answer will be the most important and terrifying quest either has ever attempted.
    "Who am I?"

    Summary

    Northumbria's alliance with Mercia might add numbers that they desperately need, but King Simon's past with Merlin, his natural ability and cunning insight into how best to incite Merlin's demon's darker impulses - as well as his conditions for the alliance - could prove problematic for Merlin's and Arthur's future.

    There's also a couple of other issues to worry other than the war:

    *Who is the traitor in Mercia?
    *Why did Bayard need Camelot?
    *What has Merlin been trying to research and find for Bayard all this time?

    And, most importantly: what's the big deal with the upcoming dark moon?

    Summary

    Yuueii Regional Theatre is known for being the best off-Broadway theatre in all of New York City. This isn't thanks to a large budget or a good publicity department, but to the rabid, fervent determination of the grad school students it employs to make it in the cutthroat world of performing arts. But when two new performers with night-and-day backgrounds are hired as leads for the company's fall play, the delicate hierarchy of the theatre threatens to collapse for good.
    Or, how to put on the best low-budget, off-Broadway production of the season without breaking your heart (or your head) in the process.

    Summary

    Derek says, "Here."

    Stiles has no time to prepare before Derek is shoving two of his stuffed wolves in his direction. "Ow — hey, easy with Sly and Truth. They're soft, but they're not that soft. And neither am I for that matter."

    Derek gives a noticeable pause in the dark.

    Stiles flushes when he realizes what he let slip and he quickly turns away so he can hide his blushing face between the grey and white wolves taking up residence in his arms.

    "You — you named them," Derek marvels.

    or

    Stiles moves to Beacon Hills so his dad can become the new sheriff, and finish out his freshmen year of high school (by staying under the radar) when he suddenly becomes the Beyoncé of the Supernatural community, and catches the eye of one of the most prominent Werewolf families in all of North America. It literally all starts with a stuffed animal(s).

    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

    But Mandalorians are tougher than they'd bargained for, and Maul himself is a brilliant strategist, which makes things hard. They'd been bogged down in one of the cities in the southern hemisphere for a full week, just trying to break past the outer defenses, because as it turns out the combination of “no qualms about using civilians as living shields” and “knows how to use smaller numbers to their advantage” in a Sith is kriffing deadly.

    They've lost a lot of good men already, and things are only getting harder. Anakin and Obi-Wan both have just been called back to Coruscant (something about the Chancellor getting himself kidnapped, the idiot), with their battalions, leaving Ahsoka to handle the attack on Sundari alone--her first solo attack as a General.

    It's not the tactics she's worried about, it's the sudden drop in numbers.

    Summary

    Hux wakes up, panicked and alone, after a mission he can't remember.

    Hux's ironclad confidence is compromised, and he decides the only remedy is to go out and find Ben Solo and recruit him to the First Order all over again. And again. And again.
