    Summary

    Dream felt his breath hitch as he lowered his hunting bow. The dying sunlight caught perfectly on the swan’s pristine white wings, highlighting its beauty and grace as it glided through the sky.

    It was so, so beautiful.

    When it gently landed on the ground, there was a magnificent flash of light, and the brunet who replaced the swan was somehow even more breath-taking.

    Summary

    !!! IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!
    This story is being published on AMAZON. It will be available from May 31, 2021. If you're reading, please hurry up, it's going to be deleted here on AO3!

     

    Born in the 90s, university student, short and with lots of human friends: Persephone really has a terrible divine curriculum. Mortals don't worship her, Gods don't invite her to their mundane events, and all in all it would be fine for her. Or at least this is what she thinks.
    Everything changes when at a conference she meets Hades, God of the dead. His too is a heavy baggage: three hundred thousand years of age, seven feet tall, at least twenty titles on his name. But he's also the only one understaning Persephone's passion for law subjects, as well as the only one who seems uncomfortable among the other deities as much as her. How couldn't they get along?
    They find themselves intertwining their destinies and working together to issue a controversial judgement, collaborating in a trial of souls in the court of the Underworld. And so, halfway between irony and seriousness, fairness and rigor, life and death, this is the (semi) modern reinterpretation of a myth that has never stopped being told.

    Summary

    Edith Watts's passion is painting wintry landscapes and wildlife thriving in the American wilderness. But after being commissioned by the charming, albeit annoying and secretive, Mason Verger to paint his portrait, she is swept away to his luxurious manor with a wonderous garden and view of the Appalachian Mountains, and is seduced into becoming his bride.
    What seems like a perfect, fairytale marriage begins to fall apart, however, after an encounter with (in)famous psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter that leaves Mason severely disfigured and paralyzed. His desire for an heir becomes more vehement and his newfound bloodlust makes him more dangerous.
    With this fairytale illusion destroyed and monsters (as well as dark secrets) being revealed, Edith is done trying to be the loving wife she swore to be and, with the assistance of an old friend, plots Mason's downfall.
    No longer shall Edith Verger be the Boar's Bride.

    Summary

    A Beauty and the Beast AU.

    He neglected his servants, his staff, his castle, his land, and himself—until his body was as overgrown as his forests and he was more snarling, growling beast than man...Days turned to weeks, weeks to months, months to years. The war became a memory, as did the prince and all the rest. But people knew of the forest, dark and thorny and full of wolves, and of the dangerous monster that lurked in the abandoned ruin of a castle, and they stayed away.

    Or, at least, most everyone did.

    Summary

    Arthur falls asleep in his cozy bed, in his modern-day London flat. He wakes up in the royal hunting grounds in the kingdom of Ixaidel, in a magical realm far away.

    To the west, the kingdom of Prathage is resolving a civil war, triggered by the “Ice Princess” who cast the land in an eternal winter five years ago.

    To the east, the Princess of Stulikya is planning a coup, hoping to reclaim her family’s crown from her wicked sister-in-law.

    As the realm’s unexpected Don Quixote caricature, Arthur finds that the misdeeds must be corrected, the spells must be broken, and the kingdoms must be set right before he can finally return to his own world.

    Summary

    Once upon a time there was a kind girl known as Cinderella and a generic young prince, both of whom didn’t have a clue that they would become involved with forces of Heaven and Hell.

    Or, Aziraphale is trying to keep the court from collapsing, and Crowley throws a wildcard in the mix. Possibly because he enjoys their much more productive way of fighting.

    Summary

    Tale as old as time - woman pulls heist, woman loses friends and credibility, woman ends up alone with a Night City Legend erasing her identity and replacing it with his own. Not by my choice, I'd add. Things seemed manageable for V alone until they weren't anymore, and she found herself on a path that put her in front of Detective River Ward. She's thankful she met the badge, and I'm just thankful she waited to fuck him 'til after he changed careers.

    V never fucking listens to me, but maybe this time... it'll turn out better than I'm expecting it to.

    ◾◾◾
    A novelization of V and River's storyline as well as expanding on the unique relationship between Johnny and V (no romance). Including some original content/missions, and eventually, an original ending. Weekly updates.
