    Summary

    You’re a daycare worker, watching over toddlers, when the imminent end of the world is announced. It becomes increasingly clear none of the kids’ parents are going to show up as the end inches nearer. (Published October 27, 2020)

    Tumblr tags: ficlet, readmore, prompted writing, it feels like i should trigger warn on this but I'm not sure what for, it's kind of emotionally intense, I cried a lot writing this but I don't know how well that'll translate, anyway I still think that there are a lot good people in the world, even when things seem like they're bad and getting worse, there are still a lot of good people in the world

    Summary

    Inspired by a tumblr post by libations-of-honey-and-milk:

    In fairy tales and fantasy, two types of people go in towers: princesses and wizards.

    Princesses are placed there against their will or with the intention of ‘keeping them safe.’

    This is very different from wizards, who seek out towers to hone their sorcery in solitude.

    I would like a story where a princess is placed in an abandoned tower that used to belong to a wizard, and so she spends long years learning the craft of wizardry from the scraps left behind and becomes the most powerful magic wielder the world has seen in centuries, busts out of the tower and wreaks glorious, bloody vengeance on the fools that imprisoned her.
    That would be my kind of story.

    Summary

    Bartholomew "Hollow" Hainsley has presented as an Omega at the relatively late age of twenty-three, leading his brother, the Earl of Westbrooke, to start looking to marry him off. Painfully shy and set in his ways, Hollow wants nothing more than to stay at Westbrooke forever but as he certainly knows, the bulk of the soirees in London are about to begin and there is nothing he can say that will make his brother change his mind about finding him a proper suitor. With at least one marriage proposal under his belt, he can't believe how unlucky he could possibly be to have drawn the gaze of the most formidable Alpha he's ever seen in his life, the rakishly handsome and devilishly mannered Duke of Asterly.

    Summary

    Couples receive “parent points”, which they can use to purchase their children. Most parents wait for a few thousand, but the Carsons didn't want to wait. They chose to buy the cheaper, hundred-point child.
