    Summary

    It only comes to him later, when he's standing on the wall daring the wind to push him over, daring the trees to rush up and meet him from five stories away, that Hamlet was always about fifty percent brilliant at making plans.

     

    Or, the one where Hamlet gives the gift of ghost-sight to Fortinbras, then haunts the castle and helps out in Denmark.

    Summary

    Ariel would look back, almost a hundred years back, look back to her past and trace her sins and mistakes to that long-ago moment, to that desire to know more, to ask for more than what she was given. Ariel would look back with a thousand words that crowded her tongueless mouth, as the world turned underneath her bleeding feet and wonder to herself, was it truly worth it - all of it - to know what I know now?

    ***

    A radical reinterpretation, deconstruction, and expansion on Hans Christian Andersen's and Disney's The Little Mermaid.

    Summary

    The other survivors, Osric among them, looked to Horatio, as if he should have the answers, like Marcellus and Bernardo had looked to him: you’re in college, you talk to the ghost. You’re in college, you explain to the invading Norwegian prince why our throne room looks like a battlefield.

    or,

    Ophelia was murdered, Hamlet is gay, trans, and bipolar, and somehow Hamlet and Horatio manage to build themselves a happy ending out of the remains of a tragedy.

    Summary

    The summer-mester at Wittenberg is just beginning. Hamlet is content to spend the summer studying philosophy, attending parties, and dodging Fortinbras' invitations into a scholarly poet's club. That is, until his campus life becomes chased by visions and visits from a mysterious wraith. He seeks the help of a paranormal studies major named Horatio, who has a group of friends who hunt the supernatural. The two uncover more than just a ghost through their hunt, however. This is the story of a calamity in Wittenberg, that may or may not be spurred from calamity elsewhere.
