    Summary

    His face is on the news again. Unsmiling, a little wild-eyed in the flashbulb burst. Awkward bowl cut, split lip. A red bar beneath his chin reads: "106 MINORS SEIZED FROM STATEN ISLAND RELIGIOUS COMPOUND...."
     
    Credence is not technically a minor. Technically, according to the documents folded in a manila envelope on Tina's kitchen counter, he was supposed to have turned twenty-four in November. A minor technicality.

    It’s January, 1996. DOMA is in the works. The newscasters on WNET are inappropriately attractive. Clinton is trying to hold office. People can make phone calls anywhere, cordlessly, from brick sized phones. Credence Barebone has been freed from an abusive religious cult, and nothing makes sense anymore.

    Summary

    Elrohir's odyssey across Middle-earth finally brings him home to Rivendell. Sadly all is not well: the Elf-child that was abducted into Umbar is now a Man grown. Forty years of war and darkness left Elrohir deeply scarred, and the Hidden Valley harbors ancient conflicts of its own. Will the love of his family be enough when Elrohir finds himself a stranger in a strange land?

    Chapter 3 is up, in which Elrohir keeps falling down the Elvish rabbit hole ... 

    This story is part of the Under Strange Stars series, but it can perfectly well be read on its own. The story is completely written and will be posted a chapter a week.

    Many thanks to my excellent beta Dawn Felagund. Any remaining mistakes are mine.

    Summary

    She heard him say once, "My old man taught me that duct tape could fix anything. I don't think he was talking about bullet holes." But what about broken hearts? Could he possibly fix hers? Because when she stepped out of Vault 111, the pieces were barely enough to be put back together. Then again, he also said "You can fix just about anything: guns, computers, people. Just gotta have the right tools." If anyone has the right tools for the job, it would be Sturges.

    How I imagine my character's romance with Sturges would go if we had in fact been allowed to romance him...

    Summary

    It wasn’t uncommon or even unexpected for the powerful and privileged to keep any sort of leashed apex predator as a pet. Often what made them dangerous to begin with was relinquished upon ownership – defanged tigers or clipped falcons.

    Loki fingers the golden torque laying heavy beneath his collarbone. That’s what he supposes he is now. It was spelled to him though, and he could not remove it. The craftsmanship elegant, the purpose cruel. With little else to occupy his thoughts he looks at his reflection as the servant works about his hair, plaiting and weaving it above his crown as is customary. She has not brought her gaze down to make contact with his reflected eyes once, terrified at the anger behind them.

    So.

    He is to be a harlot.

    Trussed up and begging for their amusement.

    Summary

    Legolas, prince of Mirkwood, is forever tainted by the harm done by his older brother. Legolas knows the creature that committed such atrocities wasn't the big brother who helped raised him, but a monster created from shadow, magic, and Sauron's doing. However, the inability of the rest of his kingdom to see him as anything more than a victim who should have died had led to rumors that he is sick and twisted too, that he found pleasure in his infliction. The only place he feels safe and at peace is in Imladris where Lord Elrond is always quick to assure him that he is a miracle. Elrond who is always helping him to heal, even if it's giving voice to the terrors that still plague him. Lord Elrond is the one who saved him from the monster that took his brother after all.

    Too late, Legolas realizes he doesn't have to prove himself to Mirkwood, he already has a home with Elrond, but the patient Lord has been waiting for him to realize it on his own. Now he is committed to helping Frodo save their world, and hopefully redeeming himself to be good enough to stand next to the Lord he has come to love as his own.
