    Summary

    Dmitry never really liked pets, living as a street rat pets were seen as a burden rather than a companion, plus being extremely allergic to them gave them another strike against their name.

    Isn't he just adorable Dmitry?" She held the mutt out towards him. He sneezed in reply, wiping at his runny nose before he could sneeze again. "Well I can't really say he's adorable when I can't be near him without sneezing or my throat closing" Anya pouted and cuddled the dog close to her again.

    This is a trashy one shot based off of a few headcanons and prompts found on Anastasiaheadcanons on Tumblr

    Summary

    Dancing bears, painted wings, things I almost remember and a song someone sings, once upon a December.

    It's 1906 in St.Petersburg, the world is alive and the Grand Duchess is only 5, a shared look between her grandmother, a knowing smile, a cry of longing and a music box, their little secret. She's leaving for Paris without Anastasia.

    It's 1917, Anastasia is 16, adored by everyone, the youngest of the Tsar's daughters and she is the picture of beauty. That is until the Bolsheviks attack the palace and the royals are taken to Ipatiev house in Yekaterinburg. They are never seen again.

    It's 1918, the Romanov family are woken during the night and told to dress, they are being moved to a safer location. They walk down to the cellar of the Ipatiev house, awaiting the arrival of their transport. It never came. They were executed right there in the cellar, no Romanov was left alive.

    It's 1927, and there's a rumour in St. Petersburg. Although the Tsar did not survive, one daughter may be still alive, the Princess Anastasia, but please do not repeat.

    Summary

    A collection of Wimseyverse drabbles and ficlets, originally from Tumblr prompts, mostly on words. Chapters are self-contained; it's marked unfinished as it's a repository for things too short to be sensibly organized into a series.

    Summary

    Hi, this is another one shot based off of a headcanon from Anastasiaheadcanons on Tumblr.

    -Dimitri is so much taller than Anya so he is always holding things she needs over her head. He always laughs at her until she yanks him down by his collar, kisses him with so much passion, and then grabs whatever he's holding in his stunned silence.
    -He does it on purpose just to get kissed.

     

    It had started out innocently enough, well as innocently as teasing your vertically challenged wife could be. Anya, determined and stubborn as a rampaging bull had tried with all her might to pluck the book she had wanted to read which had somehow situated itself on the highest shelf of their bookcase. She had assumed Dimitri had cleaned up after her, and without thinking had carelessly placed it within easy reach of his long arms. Or he put it up there just to watch her struggle. The thought coursed through her mind but she quickly dismissed it. It had been an honest mistake, of sorts, but Dimitri couldn't help but chuckle when he saw his adorable wife stretched up on her tippy toes, glamorous heels littered around her feet as she attempted to stretch herself up and grab her book.

    Summary

    based off of a Tumblr headcanon which I'm using as a prompt for this story, from Anastasiaheadcanons on Tumblr :)

    -Lily organises the best parties

    This story is also sort of based off of 'Eight drink Amy' from Brooklyn Nine-Nine because honestly one of the greatest shows ever, and also because that is an amazing long running joke that reminded me of a headcanon that I wanted to alter and then use.

     

    Lily knew how to throw a party.

    Of course, she'd been to so many lavish and extravagant events in her lifetime she was bound to pick up a thing or two. Lily took it upon herself to organise every event in her friends' lives, big or small. This is how the disaster of Anya's birthday had started.

    Summary

    As the new Duchess of Denver, Lady Peter (alias Harriet Vane) tells H. M. The Queen Mother about her changeable life and fate.
    A crossover from Dorothy Sayers' novels: "Strong Poison", "Gaudy Night", "Busman's honeymoon" to Jill Paton Walsh's novels: "Thrones and Dominations", "The Attenbury Emeralds". I highly admire the works of both the novelists, and am profoundly affected by Harriet Vane's lot.

    Pure fluff - about the year 1953.
