    Summary

    Building off of Artsy Hobbitses' Humanformers AU.

    Just after the Great War of the early 20th century, the Quintessons invaded Earth and enslaved the human race. They would hold sway for twenty-five years, give or take, during which they performed experiments on the world, its people, and harvested both for resources.

    Still reeling from the aftermath of his stint in Quintesson captivity, Victor Prentiss finds himself torn between his past, his present, and an uncertain future. In addition, a question haunts him to the core; what is the difference between being useful and being used?

    Content warnings are per chapter, but general CWs are violence, trauma, death, and nonconsensual human experimentation.

    Summary

    The son of a well known and respected aristocrat famous for his undeniable charms and a farmer together in love. Two lives clashed over each other. Bonding in a deep yet unnecessarily slow pace. Safe to say that this love is a rebel itself. Sweet innocent yet menacing in every trace possible. Cluttering the hearts of two very young souls yet keeping them bonded with every strings attached. A flower of their love, their song bloomed in the darkest times of their lives. The question is will the flower flourish forever or wither away in weakness. Is their love strong enough to withstand every obstacle stationed in their way or is it weak enough to be tossed away?

    What could possibly go wrong? Right?

    It’s a dark, dangerous place. Filled with criminals and scum. It’s not uncommon to hear about a murder, but this one was particularly mysterious.

    You, the fresh faced Detective Camilla DeVille are hungry to solve this one, unwilling to allow anything to get into your way.

    Unless that anything is the beautiful and seductive Alcina Dimitrescu, the lead singer of Miss D and the Pallboys who also happens to be a suspect in the murder.

    Great.

    ZYLBY48 Week - Day 4

    --

    Luo Fei gives him a look. “I have a proposition for you.”

    “No thanks, Luo-shu-shu, I prefer pretty girls.” Luo Fusheng faces Luo Fei with his hands in his pockets and his head tilted back challengingly.

    Luo Fusheng watches Luo Fei’s knuckles turn white on the top of his cane, as though he’s thinking very hard about beating Luo Fusheng to death with it. “…I have a lead on a very old, very cold case,” he says, voice strained, “One that we both have some personal connection to.” His hand goes to his watch chain, then drops back down to his side.

    “Am I interrupting?” Qingeng replies, feigning concern. In the back of his mind, he wonders what his men would think if they heard him so soft-spoken and polite. They would probably flee in fear, expecting something terrible to happen.

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Summary

    This is a collection of short fics I’ve written within the Shades of Magic universe for the August Writer’s Month prompts for 2022. These pieces circulate several AUs -- a academia/professors AU, a Southern Gothic AU, a Mythology AU, and a Fairytale AU -- plus a few odds and ends, in canon and one-offs from the prompt list. Chapters will jumbled as I post, not in prompt list order. AU storylines will be posted in chunks, with the one shots in between for some breathing room.

    Enjoy!

    CW: I make no guarantees about the content of these chapters. I've outlined all of them, but am essentially writing on the fly. The rating I’ve given reflects the variety of content in here, including some pretty dark stuff and/or nsfw situations.
