    Summary

    A young English woman learns her long-dead father may be alive & involved in an ugly venture in the late 1700's conflict between European powers struggling for political and commercial dominance in the Americas. Accompanied by a handsome Spanish captain, who may be either her bodyguard or her jailer (and his very tall & rather violent companion), they search for the mysterious pirate who raised her and wind up rescuing a desperate young Middle Eastern man trying to save people from a cruel fate in the wilderness that is Colonial Florida.

    Inspired by (requires less research than "based on") a REAL incident in American History. (This stuff writes its RebelCaptain self.Google it!) Pirates, Storms, Rum, Religion, Philosophy, Ideals of the Enlightenment corrupted by greed and the lust for power, cross-dressing. Spain v England while Portugal gnashes its teeth in the background and the American Revolution gets put on simmer. More than you needed to know about Indigo production, actual bodice-ripping of actual bodices (where appropriate), swords, 18th cen. History is full of angst and pain (and so is my writing) but I am going to try to make this little less. Fantasy. Sexy fun where I can manage it but this is me.

    Summary

    Surviving college was difficult enough for the brilliant, yet impulsive and often self-destructive Alexander- but now he's also tormented every night by mysterious dreams in which he finds himself in the middle of a furious battle, accompanied by a fellow-soldier who, even thought he's unable to remember his name, seems oddly familiar to him...

    A mix of your typical college AU (with Alex being a mess, Peggy being a sassy, sarcastic millennial, Eliza being a sweetheart, Angelica being better than you™, Aaron being an even bigger mess, Laf being the cute foreign exchange student and Hercules being a bro, but with a heart of gold, Maria being an absolute cinnamon roll, but somewhat prone to making bad life decisions, poor James being anxious and sick most of them time and Thomas being, well, Thomas) and a historical finction with John Laurens being pure and sweet but also, like, really angsty

    Summary

    A drarry work dealing with the aftermath of the war both politically and emotionally. Obligatory Draco redemption arc. Some adult themes likely forthcoming, but certainly not immediately- these boys just got out of a warzone (or did they)? Let them chill!
    A warning will be provided prior to each chapter with possibly upsetting depictions.
    Title is from The Cranberries' masterpiece song about the Troubles, Zombie. I highly recommend it.
    I am not British. I invite and would be grateful for any corrections from anyone who lived through this turbulent time in British history. I am also not a gay man or black, and so would love corrections if I have depicted either of those experiences inaccurately.
    This fictional transformative work is not meant to reflect the opinions, thoughts, or actions of actual people, alive or dead.

    Summary

    Ottoman AU! Young royal hostages – graceful, well-educated boys of fine manners - would often make the delight of the Sultan and his Court, yet șehzade Sadiq just had to get the one who was as soothing as a hot iron spike. Not that he really minded. TurkRo fighting, banter, dubcon and an overall exchange of mixed feelings. Rating will probably go up.
