    Summary

    The Umbrella Top Circus is the best show there is, with the strongest strongman, the most amazing hypnotist, and an oracle whose revelations are frighteningly accurate--when he's actually around. What nobody knows though, is that the acts aren't just an act--the performers have talents beyond the ordinary.

    Things have taken a turn though--with the disappearance of one of their most popular acts over a decade ago, a decline in ticket sales, and now a giant fire that takes down the big top, how will the show go on?

    Reginald has a plan.

    Summary

    When Unkar Plutt drags her out of bed towards the towering white and red tent, she knows her life is forfeit. Rey is stripped and bartered over, and at last sold to The First Order’s Traveling Circus, to become an attraction in Master Snoke’s Grotesquerie. Her attempts at escape are foiled, and brutally punished by her anointed jailers — a pair of brothers who are likewise a sideshow attraction themselves.

    Summary

    Willa smiled as he picked a cobweb from his hair and flicked it quickly to the floor. “You sound like a rather reluctant king, though.”

    “Perhaps I’d like it better if they paid me more,” sighed Stewy, getting to his feet. “Or if they let me wear a crown.”

    “I think you’d look very good in a crown,” said Willa instinctively; she felt her cheeks growing red as his eyes met hers, carefully ignoring the small smile that flickered at the corner of his lips.

    “You think so?”

    “Found that book yet?”

    Summary

    Bucky’s job as a carnival fortune teller is the best he’ll get for his lot in life, and he’ll forever be grateful. It’s given him food, shelter, and a motley group of friends; but most importantly, it’s satisfied the tarot deck.

    When he reads the fortune of one Steve Rogers, however, the tentative life he’s managed is shaken.

    Summary

    Cas and Dean have been best friends since they first met, when Cas turned up at the circus with a dream to join them. Dean also just so happened to have had a crush on the other boy for just as long, not that he'd ever admit it.

    He's happy with how things are, performing with Baby and watching Cas fly through the big top. Sometimes he thinks about how amazing a future with Cas could be, but it really isn't worth risking everything they have, not when Cas doesn't even like him back.

    Then Cas starts acting weird. It's just small things at first, but before Dean knows it his best friend is hardly ever around, never smiling, and worst of all, taking unnecessary risks for no apparent reason.

    Dean knows he needs to talk to Cas, but what can he do when he refuses to tell Dean what's wrong?

    Summary

    "Running away to join the circus – Steve wasn’t so green that he didn’t realise the notion was romantic; a cliché. He also knew it was possible that no one would ever believe that his running away and the circus arriving in town on the very same day was merely a coincidence."

    Steve runs away from home but not to join the circus. Bucky works with the big cats.

    It's hard managing a circus and keeping your mermaid daughter in check around a human environment. It's even harder when you also have to make sure she stays safe and out of trouble every single day. Osomatsu would know, since that's what his life has been like for the last 13 years, but he wouldn't change it for anything.

    Summary

    Sokka falters when he looks up at the group.

    A familiar face, older now, but still with the same scar and beauty. Sokka has seen this man before, years ago when he was fifteen and living on the streets. Honey eyes, fire-like pupils, a smooth pale face with a sharp turned jaw. He let his hair grow out more, it still covers his eyes, but it rests at the tops of his shoulders. Sokka wants oh so badly to reach out and just touch.

    "My name's Zuko," the man speaks, and Sokka is a kid in the city all over again, losing his balance over a few words that smooth his skin like hard finger-nails, "I heard you were hiring for circus acts from 'curious and odd individuals,'" he reads off the advertisement, "My friends and I would like to apply."

    Sokka's heart soars and his stomach churns.

    ~~~~

    Or.

    The Greatest Showman zukka-centric atla AU in which Sokka is the ringmaster and Zuko is his most beloved act.

    Summary

    Adrien remembers what it was like to dream. To hope. To believe.
    Those memories are stale now, and covered in a shroud of exhaustion as he sits in the prison he used to call a home. He's finally had enough.
    He's run away now, searching for freedom even as it continues to be an upwards struggle, and as ironic as it is, to the circus he went, finding out that magic can truly exist.

    Let the show begin, welcome to Cirque du Miraculous!
