    Summary

    A GabeNath retelling of Tam Lin, because I listened to like 12 different versions of it the other day and it stuck in my head. So if you’re familiar with the story beats, you know what to expect, though it starts in a rather grim place with Gabe going off the rails after Emilie’s death, and probably won’t get better until chapter 3 or so.

    I’m writing this for NaNo and posting chapters whenever it feels like I’ve written a reasonable chunk of what happens next. Hopefully I will finish this because I know where it’s going, unlike those other two GabeNath things I’m writing.

    Summary

    Sakura travels as a curse breaker across the land, doing what she can to put some peace back into the world. She doesn't think much of it when she breaks the curse on a lesser dragon or a fae knight, but maybe she should have.

    Summary

    On an evening warm and fair, Princess Luna comes walking to Twilight's castle, singing as she goes. Twilight, however, is not there to meet her and so Luna believes she's been stood up. Then she discovers that something far more sinsister has happened, for Twilight, picking flowers for a bouquet at the edge of the Everfree, has stepped into a fairy ring on Midsummer's Eve.

    Summary

    Crowley rounded the desk once Aziraphale had planted himself in the swivel-chair, sitting down on the edge of it so that Aziraphale’s access would be hindered. No, this couldn’t continue.

    Aziraphale finished tapping a stack of loose invoice-copies against his thigh, eyes questioning.

    “You don’t have a cat to sit on your work,” Crowley explained, regretting how pathetic that sounded, but the endearing furrow of Aziraphale’s brow was encouraging. “How’s a snake?”

    “I’d rather you in my lap,” Aziraphale said, cupping Crowley’s face in both hands, “but this will do.”

    [Bonus end-cap ficlet that immediately follows Turn In Your Arms. There was a tiny piece of unfinished business, so we attended to it.]

    Summary

    The gates of St. James’s Park were locked by the time they arrived, but such a barrier posed no obstacle. They cleared the bars with a thought, passing through like ghosts.

    “Let there be light,” Aziraphale murmured. The walkway ahead was cast in a bluish glow.

    Crowley hissed, recoiling slightly from what lay a short distance ahead. “They’re here already.”

    Aziraphale took several steps forward, squinting. The bridge wasn’t quite visible, but the reddish aura emanating from the vicinity of the water was unmistakable.

    “Stay behind me,” he insisted, continuing to walk. “Under no circumstances take the lead.”

    With a touch of weary sarcasm, Crowley chuckled. “Get thee behind me, Satan, is that it?”

    Summary

    O I forbid you maidens all
    Who wear gold in your hair
    To come and go by Carterhaugh
    For young Tam Lin is there

    That's how the song goes. The truth of the story was close enough.

    Summary

    Legends speak of the white gems of Lasgalen, formed of pure starlight. They lie at the bottom of a pool in a hazel grove in the far wood. But the grove is guarded by the Thranduilion, Legolas Greenleaf. They say he has skin of paperbark birch, the hair of willow leaves, and limbs of vine and sapling. He is wild and timeless, and from all who pass through the glen without the Elvenking's permission he will take their ring, their green mantle, or their life.

    Summary

    Two miles was further than it seemed from the vantage point of Titus’ back; by the time he arrived at Carterhaugh’s outer reaches, Proko was practically out of breath.

    Summary

    Memories of magic from his childhood lead Keith to a love he never knew he needed - if only he can hold onto it.


    Ever since he came back from the forest, Keith has been having unsettling dreams: dreams where he’s being hunted and can’t run, dreams where birds peck out his eyes. In one, Shiro puts a cup to Keith’s lips full of red, red wine that turns to rose petals in his mouth, choking him.

    He dreams about music, wild music: pipes and strings and drums. Fire flickers and dancers whirl around him. He dreams that he joins them, and Shiro’s hands are the ones that pull him into the dance.

    Summary

    “With what right, pray tell, do you harm the flowers so?” came the voice from behind the rosebush. “This is not a land of yours to steal from.”

    Jungkook whirled around to see a man stepping out, too beautiful to be anything but a dream. His hair was the same soft pink of the flower he had plucked for Yerim and his eyes were sharp as the edge of the sword Jungkook carried at his belt. The morning light fell on his face mimicking the shimmer of dew on the rose petals and his plump lips stretched around the words he spewed in a way that ought to have been ugly but was nothing short of spectacular. Yerim’s jaw set tight, posture rigid, but Jungkook couldn’t draw his eyes away.

    There he was: the legend of old.

    He spared Jungkook not a glance.

    Summary

    A Sherlock AU loosely based on the ballad of Tam Lin because my love for Tam Lin runs deep.

    John is the omega son of the lord of Carterhaugh. He will turn 18 soon and his father will force him to bond with one of the alpha lords of the surrounding areas.
    Bonding is literally the last thing John wants to do though. He would rather ride his horse and have adventures.
    On one of these trips he meets a strange alpha named "Sherlock".
    John and Sherlock hit it off, but who is Sherlock really, what secrets is he hiding and will they be able to get their happily ever after?
