    Summary

    Shakespeare has a lot of great comedies among his work. Hamlet is not one of them, but it has potential.
    You like Hamlet? You think it shouldnt be taken that seriously? Great, because this basically is Hamlet but with comic relief.

    Summary

    Summary

    What happens to Miranda after she leaves the Island? What about Caliban and Ariel? A brave new world, indeed.

    (But because I'm a literalist, this is set in the Old World just before the "Discovery" of the New, based on the Aragonese names that Shakespeare uses for the royal family of Naples: Al/fonso, Ferdinand.)

    Feedback more than welcome!

    Summary

    James Potter has just served ten years for a murder he may or may not have committed. On the day of his release, he is greeted by the detective who put him in prison. Detective Moody is retiring, and he wants to know what really happened a decade before.
    As a young actor at an elite conservatory, James noticed that his talented classmates seem to play the same characters onstage and off - villain, hero, temptress - though he was always a supporting role. But when the teachers change the casting, a good-natured rivalry turns ugly, and the plays spill dangerously over into real life.

    When tragedy strikes, one of the seven friends is found dead. The rest face their greatest acting challenge yet; convincing the police, and themselves, that they are blameless...

    AKA I take the entirety of If We Were Villains by the AMAZING M.L. Rio and rearrange it to make it MaraudersTM and JegulusTM. Go read that splendid, life-changing book if you haven't yet, and enjoy my retelling !!

    !! I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS, OR PLOT POINTS !!

    Some bits will be basically copied and pasted from the book.

    Summary

    licorice cookie actually gets fired from the dark team and works at mcdonalds as the assistant the regional manager???

    this is a story containing multiple stories which are loosely tied together in (sort of) chronological order taking place in a universe where everything explodes.

    i apologise to those who were looking for a normal fic with an actual plot and development with heartfelt characters,however,if you were looking for things such as "licorice works at mcdonalds" and "red velvet becomes a fucking cat" then you've come to the right place.

    i hope that you find at least some comfort or enjoyment from the absolute discomfort your life is /j

    Summary

    "Yes, well… I remember Nandor as well. And I also remember you saying, very clearly, that you would like to never speak to him again. Or see him. Or sit next to him or acknowledge him or think about him on account of him being a—what was it...? Ah, yes, a big stupid shit-dumb idiot man."

    "Yep. I remember that, too."

    "Yes, well. About that—"

     

    When preparing for Nadja’s wedding, a heart to heart with his soon to be married mistress reveals to Guillermo that among the guests arriving is Nandor the Relentless; his former housemate and master, with whom he seems to share an undisclosed and tumultuous romantic history. Guillermo must find a way to keep his own feelings in check when faced with his greatest regret–and a clumsy but well-meaning madcap matchmaking scheme–and make sure his new mistress’ wedding goes to plan in the meantime; no easy feat where his vampires are concerned.

    Will Nadja and Laszlo be happily married at long last? Will Nandor and Guillermo find their happiness in the process? Or will uninvited guests, an abundance of pride and a bloody big curse lay waste to the best laid plans?

    Much Ado About Nothing, the WWDITS version.
