    Summary

    Eliot was raised on a small farm in the state of Indiana. This was a secret he has shared with very few people. By the time he had begun his second year at Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy, Eliot had worked very hard to become the persona he put forth for the world to see. As Eliot put it, “Becoming me was the greatest creative project of my life.” The suave, sophisticated god of hedonism that everyone knew and wished they could be was Eliot’s most elaborate charm, and he wore it well. His favorite past-times were mixing drinks at one of his elaborate parties, and tormenting the newest first-year that lived in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with him. His name was Quentin, but he never called him that.

    Isn't that a wonderful beginning?

    Summary

    Gideon Nav loves the Renaissance Faire. It’s her second home, and during Faire season it is her only home. She had been performing since she was a child all thanks to her parents. A recent high school graduate, Gideon was thrilled to finally work full time at the Faire. She had played minor roles as a knight for the past few years, but getting a major role with lines was her dream.

    Then members of a different Faire join Gideon's precious Canaan Faire while theirs is undergoing renovations. The Dominicus Faire is filled with nothing but rich prep school kids, and Gideon's longtime rival Harrowhark Nonagesimus. To make matters worse, this season involves the knights being bound to the actors portraying the king's royal advisors. Which means that a knight and advisor will spend the whole Faire day by each other's sides.

    And guess who Gideon Nav is stuck with.

    Summary

    "Tic-Tac just used 'fuck' for the first time, I'm so proud." Jeremy joked, elbowing Michael lightly in the side and placing a hand over his heart.

    "They grow up so fast." Michael chuckled, glancing at where he figured the SQUIP must be standing, judging by where Jeremy had been looking.

    [Go for pretty much anything but the Eminem shirt. Not that I would recommend it if you did want to look like a self-assured fuckboy. It's... eugh, Terrible, tasteless, an affront to humanity.]

    [Eminem, his music, or the shirt?]

    [All three.]
    *slaps roof of work* this bad boy can fit so much pining in it

    (Or: an AU where Jeremy's SQUIP actually helps him)

    Summary

    Percy had always seemed an easy-going person to Andrew.
    Hard to believe he was a hero when Andrew saw Percy eating junk food and copying his literature homework on the internet.
    But Percy has many enemies, and some of them don't hesitate when faced with anything. Not even kidnap a child.

     

    [...]

    Percy's Iris message came as Annabeth was about to enter the classroom. The demigod had a moment of panic before hissing, “Percy, I'm in school. Do you think it's time to... "
    "I need your help - the son of Poseidon interrupted her - Someone kidnapped Andrew."

    -----------------------------
    "He's just a kid. You can't keep him here!"
    "We won't hurt him."
    "You are keeping him in a room full of snakes!"
    "The snakes are descendants of Python. They will prevent him from escaping."
    "If you wanted to stop him from escaping, just lock the damn door! Or I could keep an eye on him!"
    "Nicky, we both know it wouldn't go well."

    ----------------------------------

    Sally hesitated, then asked, "Do you think Andrew is still alive?" 
    "He is too precious to harm him. " 
    Sally squeezed her hands, “Please, Annabeth. Bring my son back. "

    Summary

    "Women should have as much right to education as men. It is an issue which all of society should be concerned with, from the commoner to the aristocrat."

    Jungkook tilts his head in confusion. "Well, you are here are you not? To receive an education suitable for women." 

    Aera sighs slightly at his ignorance. "It would be bothersome to try to explain such a concept to a dull-witted imbecile as yourself, Lord Jungkook." 

    Lee Aera, a seemingly common girl with a scholarship at the only female 'educational' facility in the country, unfortunately encounters the utterly chauvinistic head boy of the male school, Lord Jeon Jungkook, member of the richest aristocratic family in Retrorsum. The two prefects could not be more different: Jungkook finds the trail blazing girl fascinating in a sort of horrifying way and Aera is determined to make the future leader of their generation see why women should be equals.

    Historical AU set in the fictional land of Retrorsum where sexism, gender roles and female domesticity are the norm. Rich, aristocratic Jungkook & strong female lead.

    Summary

    Modern AU
    This one is about yearning.
    Twenty years ago, Geralt, Jaskier, and Yennefer met in freshman psych class when the three of them did all the work for a group project and bonded over talking trash about their fourth member.
    Now they’re in their forties and have to do adult things: pay taxes, go to work, and deal with their feelings.
    Jaskier and Geralt have been pining for each other since college. Yennefer knows. Jaskier’s sister Priscilla knows. Geralt’s adopted daughter, Ciri, who Jaskier, Geralt, and Yennefer are raising together, knows. Geralt’s adopted brothers and father know. Everyone knows. Except Geralt and Jaskier.
    Yennefer’s falling hard for Triss, the owner of the new coffee shop that opened across from her firm. She’s feeling so many clichés and kicking herself for it.
    The only one who has it together is Ciri, which is sad really, because she’s fourteen.
    Let the chaos commence!

    Summary

    Via pluck and ferocity, a scrappy orphan escapes horror to ultimately be "raised by a village" in Depression-era Alabama. Therese Belivet finds love and purpose in a "Black Belt" farming community. In 1940, the high school graduate ventures to the sleepy port city of Mobile. Therese is thrilled to secure employment and lodging.

    At Mrs. Cleary's Boarding House for Women, Therese is drawn to a beautifully plain spinster. Therese finds Carol Aird's self-imposed shell hard to crack. As time passes, their city becomes a busy "wartown". Mobile's population grows twofold, as does Therese and Carol's passion for one another.
