    Summary

    It has been 270 years since Sirens were cursed to live under the sea and tensions have only been rising like steam from a boiling pot.

    Crowley, a Siren in his late two hundreds, has felt out of place his entire life and wonders where he is meant to be. He figures he'll never find that answer until one day he meets a human, the prince Aziraphale. He'll do anything to stay with him, even make a deal with the notorious Sea Witch, Lucifer. Will he be able to keep his end of the deal or will Lucifer claim his life? Will he be able to stay with the man he loves or will he live the rest of his life under the sea?

    Summary

    This is literally just a Kevin/Seth Cinder au, which in itself is a sci-fi Cinderella retelling. If you haven’t read the lunar chronicles, I would recommend it. Either go read them and come back and read this, or read this and then read them. Or don’t. It’s up to you. I will eventually get to the other books in the series but not for a while. It’s going to be Dan/Matt as Scarlett and Wolf, Allison/Renee as cress and Thorne, and Andrew/Neil as jacin and winter. There will also eventually be some minor Nicky/Erik as Iko and Kinney so stay tuned.

    Summary

    A very adult retelling of Goldilocks inspired by a request put out into the universe on Tumblr by a favorite author of mine hoping for a "goldilocks!oc x bear hybrid kim brothers pwp" with competition among the bothers for best fit and sexual experience. Somebody needs to do this right for her because she deserves happiness but in the meantime…. My interest and skill set is only deliberately misleading fake smut and never an actual sex scene so I hope to be shown up by someone who can give her what she is really looking for but the prompt made my fairy tale loving heart happy. The fun of mapping the complaints about bowls, chairs, and beds to characters instead got my interest so I present rather than porn with plot more like one thousand words of plot with the barest kernel of offpage porn. It still is thoroughly explicit though as Goldilocks discusses her activities with the brothers after the fact as she chooses among them as suitors.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he and his family had everything their heart desired, his father and sister were spoiled, selfish, and unkind. Ever jealous of how beloved by the people the prince was, the king and the princess tricked a powerful enchantress into cursing him. Believing the spell would fall upon the selfish king, the enchantress transformed the charming prince into a hideous beast. Ashamed of her mistake, the enchantress created a magic castle for the poor prince to conceal himself in so that he could hide his garish form. She gifted him a magic mirror as a window to the outside world and an enchanted lily that would bloom until his twenty-first year. The lily was his only way to break the powerful curse: if he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, the prince fell into despair and lost all hope as his father and sister grew in power and cruelty. For who could ever learn to love a beast?
