    Summary

    After Matt and Foggy get married “platonically” for the married student housing benefits, Foggy’d assumed there were no more secrets between them. After all, he’s told Matt all of his and Matt’s told him about his father and even taken him to Fogwell’s so… why don’t they have their rings yet?

     

    Inspired by a writing-prompts-s post:
    All newlyweds are given a rock which breaks apart to reveal their wedding rings once the couple knows every secret about each other. Most couples typically get their rings on their wedding night. Five years later, you still don’t have them. What could be holding you back from getting them?

    Summary

    It is the year 2020.

    The world has been rocked by four turbulent years of US politics. A newcomer on the political scene, Washington, has managed to unite cross-party factions against the incumbent leader. Part of his radical policy includes public endorsement of his planned staff before the election comes to pass. His pick for Secretary of Treasury is the brilliant but controversial Alexander Hamilton. When Alexander discovers his citizenship is in doubt, he knows he must go to any lengths to ensure the conflict is resolved before the it is discovered and damages the campaign.

    Enter Aaron Burr. Burr is an old college friend of Alexander's: smart, reserved, and most importantly to Alexander, both single and a US citizen. He's the perfect path to citizenship... so long as no one ever discovers their marriage is a ruse.

    Most Hamilton characters appear throughout this work, but I decided not to clog the tags. The same applies to common secondary/former ships.

    Summary

    Born a prince in the Kingdom of Raki, Adam's autism is regarded as a curse by his father and the healers he brings in to cure him. Adam's trusty knight, Harlan, isn't so sure the boy is cursed, just lonely. When the two find a mangy boy on the streets who isn't afraid of Adam's oddities, inspiration strikes the knight: Harlan hires the boy as a squire and Adam gets a new friend. Will this arrangement break the curse?

    Basically a riff on the movie Penelope and the idea that curses only have power if you believe in them.

    Summary

    Derek hates to admit it, but he can always tell which kid is going to be a problem on the first day of school. He’s been teaching kindergarten at St. Bernard’s Elementary for five years now and knows it’s just as much about learning to play nicely with others as learning the alphabet and basic arithmetic. Some children are quiet, shy, or lacking in basic social skills but others…

    There’s always one that drives Derek up a wall, and this year, it’s Erica Prudence Reyes II.
