    Summary

    At the dawn of the twentieth century, Mr Willy Wonka was known as the greatest chocolate maker the world had ever known, but after the string of child murders that took place inside his own factory, his name faded into obscurity.
    When academic college scoller Murron Cain wanders into the college library, she stumbles upon the book and decides to get the long dead genious's only work of academia reprinted.
    This is the autobiography of Mr Willy Wonka himself, the life, the previously unknown tragedies and dreams, brought together into one hard backed volume.
    Now we will come to understand whether Mr Wonka was a sadly forgotten exentric genious, or a reclusive miser who rather enjoyed the outcomes of those children who died in his factory.

    Summary

    El Hopper wanted a “normal” life, but being a Princess - the only heir to the throne - didn't exactly give much opportunity for that. With her royal advisor (and best friend) Maxine, she was able to try and get a small glimpse of that regular life when she goes undercover as a "regular student" at an American university.
    Things go well until she meets Mike, a biology major trying to become a doctor. They don't get along at first, and they make each other's lives hell.

    But maybe they can put aside their differences in order to help one another. Mike shows El how to live a normal life, and El shows Mike how to loosen up, enjoy himself instead of working himself to death.

    Summary

    Bern Porter is busy near the end of the London Season nursing his romantic wounds with the rest of the spurned Betas when his Alpha cousin beseeches him to assist in the covert investigation of a Baron: Emmett Nolan. Abhorring any notion that he should get used to this kind of excitement, he begrudgingly acquiesces only to find that at every turn his efforts are thwarted not by Nolan, but by Nolan’s exceptionally clever Omega sister, Sophie. Perceived as the villain, he discovers facets of his own personality that both thrill and appall him and as he becomes closer and closer to the truth, he begins to both fear and hope that the truth may bring him closer and closer to her.

    Summary

    New York, 1896

    "In the 19th century, persons suffering from mental illness were thought to be alienated from their own true natures. Experts who studied them were therefore known as alienists."

    Will leant up against the doorway of his bedroom as it was rifled through by a few of the men. They looked under the mattress, throwing open drawers, peeking behind paintings, going out on the balcony, and Will was bored by it. They found whips and leather in the dresser, held it up like a question, and Jack shook his head at them as Will laughed. A little white terrier kept growling at the detectives when they came close, "You won't find anything, Jack." Will intoned, cutting him a sidelong glance.

    Jack, visibly impatient and derisive, didn't meet his eyes when he grumbled out, "We'll see about that."

    Hannibal is an alienist working on a murder investigation. Will is a gangster with a violent history (and a violent future). A killing spree brings them together, and it might even tear them apart.

    Summary

    A set of loosely connected stories that revolve around Leia. The POV varies, but Leia is the constant.

    This work assumes a basic level of knowledge of “Where I’ve Always Been”, which covers a majority of the Star Wars timeline [Clones to RoJ in an AU setting]. I have set the stage in the beginning notes, for those who have not read other parts. Though, I do give some explanation in-story, as I am able.

    *will contain spoilers for other stories in WIAB series*

    Summary

    Воистину, нет людей более защищенных морально — думал Гастон, и, возможно, это была одна из причин, почему он в конце концов стал наемником. Один раз продаться было не так уж болезненно, в сравнении с вечными муками совести, например, — он вот не мог вспомнить, чтобы что-либо чувствовал. Все было быстро и наводило на мысль, что может все началось еще до того, как он вступил в свою первую труппу. Может быть он всегда мыслил подобными категориями, слишком свободолюбивый и падкий на деньги солдат.

    Summary

    Guan Shan's father leaves his family for work in New York at the beginning of the First World War — and is never heard from again.

    In the autumn of 1928, thirteen years later, Guan Shan makes his own way to lower Manhattan's Little China to find him, with only the name of the man who signed his father's contract.

    When he finds himself falling into the world of America's Roaring Twenties and Tong Wars, and everyone he meets is not quite as they seem, finding his father turns out to be much more complicated than it first appeared.

    Summary

    It's the summer of 1987 and recent college graduate, Harry Styles can't seem to find what he's looking for in life as he prepares to spend his last summer in Southern California. Fortunately, the journey finally begins in the form of a summer job with his cousin.

    There, Harry meets an assortment of quirky co-workers: the sexy and seductive Louis T at rides. The charmingly bleak, fellow graduate, Liam at games. The older, cooler and "married" handyman Kevin, and then... there's Z at the kissing booth; a mysteriously mononymous guy that Harry can't seem to get out of his head.

    With his new-found friends, Harry just might find exactly what (or who) he's been looking for.
