    Set during the same timeline as "Before the Storm," albeit with a few twists.

    Summary

    Being a very silly tale of true love aided by a pair of very devious matchmakers.
    Warning for gratuitous use of Shakespeare (including Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Anthony and Cleopatra, and A Winter’s Tale). My deepest apologies to my Shakespeare professors. I am sure they would be spectacularly disappointed.

    Summary

    After his application to the doctoral program was rejected due to his incomplete entrance essay, Yuuri Katsuki scores a job running a small local bookstore. Sure, it’s not his dream but it’s simple with few surprises and little stress. That is until a world renowned Shakespearean Scholar, Dr. Viktor Nikiforov, stops in one day and reminds Yuuri just why he applied in the first place. When Viktor happens upon an old uncompleted paper Yuuri had been working on, he realizes just what a genius Yuuri is, and vows to help him not only get in, but graduate with top honors. However, just being Yuuri’s mentor isn’t really what Viktor had in mind.

    Summary

    In life, Lucille Hart always believed in two things. One: she would be a famous actress, and two, she would use Shakespeare’s words to do it. Believing though that Shakespeare’s words would send her to some magical land called “Thedas?” Well, to quote Hamlet, act three, scene three, no.

    After throwing a temper tantrum at her college and landing in this thing called the "Inquisition,” (But not the Spanish one.) Lucy, upon realizing she can live her dream of teaching the wonders of Shakespeare while also avoiding the dungeon, proposes drama lessons for the Inquisitor's troops, followed by an epic production of Henry V to be put on by her students. Only problem? Well, aside from the fact she just got zapped into a strange and magical world with no conceivable way of getting back, her perfect Henry wants nothing to do with this foolishness. Well. Lucy did always believe in the power of the bard's words. And if he got her here, surely, he could get her Cullen Rutherford.

    She's a modern Shakespearean girl, in a Thedosian world. And she's just getting started.

    Summary

    “Be still,” Holmes commanded and Richard felt himself growing limp at the suggestion. They were almost to the door when he came out of his shocked stupor and began struggling. Sherlock froze and watched him in fascination. “You are… resisting me?”

    “I understand you’re handsome, and likely rich, so this may come as a surprise to you, but you can’t just tell people-” Brook lowered his voice and whispered angrily, still trying to free his arm from Sherlock’s grip, “You can’t just tell people you want to take their virginity and then start pulling them out to the street!”

    The man considered this before replying, “That usually works.”

    ~

    Richard Brook receives the invitation of a lifetime: Come act in one of the greatest theatres in all of Europe. He leaves his small Irish town behind, along with his father's disappointment, and embarks on the journey of Parisian theatre, but he quickly learns that dark creatures lurk in the shadows of the City of Lights. He catches one such creature's interest, a being known as Sherlock Holmes, and his life is never the same.

    Summary

    Dear Reader,
    If you are looking for a oneshot about two carefree and giddy young girls who are in love, look elsewhere. Violet Baudelaire and Isadora Quagmire do love each other, but they are certainly not carefree or giddy.
    In fact, within this transformative work, the children will face unstable bookshelves, arson, a combination lock, homophobia, and the works of William Shakespeare.
    I have a sworn duty to research and record the lives of these unlucky orphans, but you have no such obligation to read this. You would be better off clicking on some other fanfiction.
    With all due respect,
    InsideMyBrain

    Summary

    "Sherlock," Mycroft says grandly. He nods at John magnanimously. "Doctor Watson."

    "John," John corrects, just to be a little shit.

    Sherlock's lips twitch. John remembers belatedly that he enjoys it far too much when John decides to worm his way deliberately under Mycroft's skin.

    ///

    It's the aftermath of a case, they're sitting in a café somewhere drinking very good tea, and then Mycroft shows up.

    John is feeling a little. . . childish.

    Summary

    Love. That’s what made a home for Shion—not Chronos, but his mother; not the room, but Nezumi, he supposed. The thought of Shion caring for him was not something strange, for the boy was always loudly declaring his feelings. The strangeness came from the idea of accepting, of reciprocating. Nezumi was too wise for that.

    Summary

    When Team Free Will learns that Bobby is in Heaven’s lockup, they mobilize to spring him out. Dean knows that nothing is ever easy, which is why he drags Castiel along for a last-night-on-Earth extravaganza just before the heist to free Bobby goes down. That evening shifts their relationship in new and unsettling ways, but there’s no time to explore it. They’ve got a mission.

    This tale, told half in prose and half in the style of a Shakespearean play, follows our players as they try to enact their rescue. The plan is simple: get in, get Bobby, get out again. When the rescue goes sideways, Dean, Sam, and Castiel find themselves trapped in a version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest - and the world is populated with some very familiar faces.

    Summary

    “There’s one fairytale princess I quite like,” Torsten said and dragged his fingertips up the small of my back, my nipples hardening against his suit just as I could feel him hardening against my belly; our heat rose with our pulses, our pulses with the music's, the orchestra playing faster and faster. “That version of Snow White, where she's dead when the prince comes to her, makes love to her--or at least the prince thinks she’s dead. And that’s the point," he said, his eyes as sharp as shards of glass; as if to follow a cut made, he now pressed his lips to my jugular. "Do you follow me?”

    “I follow you,” I said, and to demonstrate, I let myself fall dead in his arms, completely listless, lifeless but for the fraction of a second, so that we both staggered; he had to catch me to stop us from falling over. And oh, but the helpless, high-pitched moan he let out now, at my acquiescence, my surrender, my promise of the liebestod to come: the way his eyes widened, the way his cock leapt against my dress!

    “We’re going home,” he rasped as the song reached its crescendo, his lips as wet against my ear as I was wet between the legs; he swept me off my feet and carried me to the taxi waiting outside.

Instead, Louis is stuck with only dreaming of such wild fantasies and writing them down. He can create entire romances in his dreams, yet he can never live one.
