    Summary

    Born into privilege, she grew to see the world torn to shreds by war. Born into nobility, she was expected to marry whomever her parents deemed worthy. But she was different. She wanted the choice to be hers, to have her fate within her own hands. Reluctantly, her parents agree and give her a year and a day to make her choice. But of course, he must be of noble stock in order to meet their approval fully.

    Her willingness to follow the rules gets thrown to the wind the moment she sees him. A dashing cavalry officer. A Captain no less. Her neat, structured world is shattered. Her heart and mind no longer agree and afford her no peace.

    Usually so perceptive of those around her, she fails to notice how, she too, has caught his eye. Captain James Nicholls. In a small town square, he first sees her and is stricken to the core.

    Will they find it within themselves to speak what their hearts demand of them? And if so, will their love stand the tests of family expectations and a world at war?

    Summary

    With piling pressure and a gray future weighing Bakugou down, he decides he doesn't want to be a hero anymore. Now without any direction in his life, he searches for a way out of the corner he's in.

    Figure skating. A hobby he had grown with, something he kept hidden from the world around him, something to let out what was inside.

    This wouldn't be an easy road. He may have all the groundwork needed to be an excellent skater, but... there was the problem of his fear of the audience.

    Summary

    After being cursed to live forever until he finds true love Ben Solo now going by Kylo Ren, Executive of First Order Marketing, meets Rey, an Uber driver, one morning after a night out. When she accidentally witnesses him get hit by a bus and walk away unscathed, she vows to help him break the curse by finding his true love.

    ---

    “Aren’t Uber drivers supposed to actually listen to their passengers?”

    “Well you’re not an official passenger and you’re not rating me so I can pretty much do whatever I want.” She smirked and he rolled his eyes, he was starting to think the subway may have actually been a better option. “So you want to talk about your one night stand?”

    “How do you know it was a one night stand?” Kylo argued, “Also bold of you to judge me when you took a stranger into your car because he offered you five hundred dollars.”

    “You stood in front of my car.”

    “You could have run me over.” (Chapter One)

    Summary

    What if 6000 years of mutual pining isn't enough and we get to have more? Supernatural entities can be as oblivious as the rest of us. Sometimes, even more so.
    Or, more plainly put:
    This is going to be the slowest of slowburns.
    Anathema, Adam and Warlock want those two walking disasters getting together.
    Unfortunately, our main protagonists are being rather dense.
    Also unfortunately both Heaven and Hell want to see them punished for what they did.
    Actually, Heaven a lot more then Hell, seeing as angels are being a bunch of holier-than-thou knobs.
    Later edit: Since we're soon reaching the end I will update whatever happens in the last chapter posted, so here goes: love confessions in the latest one.

    Summary

    It all started with a bad idea- bad idea to Minho at least- when Chan decides that they should pretend to date to soothe the awkwardness over the summer when Chan is invited to his friend’s beach house for the summer where his ex and his boyfriend will also be.

    It won’t be completely awful once Chan has to fulfill his promise to Minho, right?

    Summary

    Satya Vaswani didn't know what to expect when she reached out to Overwatch, accepted their offer of extraction from Vishkar, left the world she knew behind, and became the first passenger on a global covert recruitment mission.

    She didn't expect the immediate kindness shown to her by the cheerful pilot that welcomed her aboard.
    She didn't expect the second passenger to be none other than Vishkar's most wanted troublemaker and her own hated enemy.
    And she certainly didn't expect nightly visits from a mysterious hacker with a strangely incongruous agenda.

    Nor did she expect any of what happened next.

I know we're all waiting for "Everything Nice" ^-~, Unedited and completely raw so be nice, but constructive.

    Summary

    "You shouldn't have come here. A war camp is no place for you."

    "I'm not the only woman here."

    "Aye…there are warriors, and then there are ill-advised fools--selling themselves for coin that doesn't exist. Which are you?" He takes her wrist, turning it up to trace her smooth palm with his calloused thumb, a look of weariness stealing across his face. "As I thought." He lets her go and takes a step back, addressing his men. "We're not here to train green boys, nor wait on a lady's courtesies. We've no resources or time for that." He speaks as if she's a lesson and his men the students. Her mouth tastes like chalk as she watches them stalk away, her words dead in her throat.

    Stupid girl. It had taken only a few days for her to forget how to feel this small.

    This is a mix of book/show. Major differences from canon: Sansa was fostered by her Aunt Lysa in King's Landing. Jon Snow came to Winterfell after Sansa was already in the South. Ned neither denied nor confirmed that Jon was his bastard. Story takes off after Jon's resurrection. Ramsey holds Winterfell. Sansa has been in the Vale.

    Summary

    Aziraphale is a baker at a local bakery/bookshop. No he doesn't think that's odd and no the books are not for sale.
    Crowley works at a local plant shop that just so happens to be right down the street from said bakery.
    When the coffee shop across the street from Crowley's work closes for renovations, he's forced to go elsewhere for his much needed morning coffee and donuts. That's when he remembers the old bakery he used to go to before the place across the street opened up. What he finds in that little bakery is something he's never expected he'd get the chance to have in this entire lifetime.
    Day by day, week by week, something new blossoms between two unlikely people, whom perhaps need it more then anyone.

    -Hope ya'll like pining because that's exactly whats on the menu tonight-

    Summary

    Michaela King is new to the superhero gig - as in, super new. (Ha) But that doesn't mean she plans to shy away from her newfound responsibilities, especially when she's living in Hell's Kitchen and the Avengers can't be called upon to settle every petty squabble that breaks out in her neighborhood. She's not the only small-time hero who thinks big picture, either, and well - who doesn't love a good old-fashioned team-up?

    (DISCLAIMER: The original characters are mine, as is the story idea. Marvel owns the rest. )
