    Summary

    Dylan Strome has little in common with the eligible gentlemen of London society. His famous father made his fortune hunting archaeological treasures, and Dylan's rustic upbringing has left him ill-prepared for a life of parties and frippery. But when his father and two brothers go missing, Dylan must embrace the unknown. Armed with only the short list of highborn men who'd backed his father's venture, he poses as a young man looking for a wealthy husband. He doesn't intend to find one.

    Summary

    In the middle of their second year, Draco and Harry discover they're soulmates and do their best to keep it a secret from everyone.

    Their best isn't perfect.

    “Are you trying to get killed, Potter?” Malfoy drawls, stalking forward. Quick as a serpent himself, he reaches out and grabs the snake just below the head. It thrashes in his grip, but is no longer able to bite anyone. “This is a poisonous snake, and I doubt anyone brought a bezor with them.”

    Harry glares. He opens his mouth, and feels the beginning the snake’s language pass his lips, and this isn’t what he wants, what’s the point of insulting Malfoy if he can’t understand him –

    Malfoy’s eyes widen. He slaps his hand over Harry’s mouth, “Potter, what the hell–”

    Summary

    “The royal line will carry on,” Freddie had said in Danish. The clip Connor saw had been dubbed over in a crisp English accent, but there was nothing that could dim the regal set to Freddie’s shoulders. “There will be kings and queens of Denmark after me, as there have been kings and queens of Denmark before me. I, like many before me, am placing my duty over my personal desire for children. Maybe--I hope I will find a husband in time, but I will not have children of my own. Instead, every child of Denmark, every son and every daughter of our land, can consider themselves my child, to be cared for and protected through my service to our country.”

    Or, a Beauty and the Beast AU featuring the Leafs resident gingers.

    Summary

    “You’re not allowed to take the high ground while proposing we defraud your government, Marns.”

    “Not with that attitude,” Mitch says. “Look, I’m not proposing we defraud anyone, I’m just-”

    “Proposing?” Auston finishes, wry.
