  1. Summary

    Unconnected short stories based on my own ideas; many were written for college classes.
    Since fairy tales are so archetypal, I'll include retellings if they:
    1. have clear characterization beyond archetypes
    2. defined settings, whether conceptually or distinctly
    3. implemented themes (essentially, stronger storytelling)
    4. could stand on their own if the reader didn't know the original fairy tale.
    However, if it's more bare-bones and focuses more on communicating a concept than the actual storytelling, then it won't be here. (Pretty much, if you're confused and you care, compare The Cardinal Prince, with clear characters and themes of fear and transformation, to Spindle, which is essentially "Sleeping Beauty + Rumpelstiltskin".)

  2. Summary

    I LOVE fairy tales, and I love retelling them. Each of these revisited tales has a unique twist, though not "twisted."

  3. Summary

    AKA, my take on the DC Comics Universe, named after Batman because he's kind of the connecting piece in the three main TV shows that formed my little unofficial fan-canon: Batman: the Animated Series, Teen Titans, and Justice League/Unlimited. What little knowledge of the comics and hours on individual wiki pages is also part of the development of all this. Since there are so many different universes and timelines and conflicting histories, I've just scraped my own together, picking and choosing as I please. No debates on these works, please, because I'm just here to have fun, and these need no critiques.

    Summary

    “What in the world are you doing?”

    Her arm was still extended. “Giving you an out. Because it’s New Year’s Eve, and we’re lonely-together people, and you want a party, and I want to change my mind.” She looked at him meaningfully, then nodded toward her hand. “So are you going to take it or not?”

    Two years pass, and Félix finds himself stuck and bored out of his mind at a New Year's party. Fortunately, he finds someone who can get him out. And give him more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    Félix never wanted to go to school, but now that he's here, he's decided to keep going. School makes it easier to slip away for his duties as Chat Noir, so it's only logical. His decision certainly isn't related to his attractive classmate, or her never ending kindness, or her endearing awkwardness. And anyone who says otherwise will suddenly find himself without a steady supply of Camembert.

    Marinette has a problem. As Ladybug, it's important to keep her identity secret above all else. Even if that means that she can never tell her partner how she really feels about him, and that she has to keep her crush a secret from her friends, which is easier said than done. Following her heart has never been such a challenge, and anyone who argues will have to deal with mini chocolate chips in her cookies.
