    Summary

    Another realm exists just beneath the skin of ours. Children's stories and nursery rhymes hint at hideous creatures preying on humans. In that world, true love can be your greatest strength or your greatest weakness.

    Violet Fitcher is Bluebeard's eternally-sixteen ex-spouse and the mother of his child. They're also the leader of a team of undercover fairytales from around the world that hunt monsters. They've finally got Bluebeard pinned down in Arizona, where murdered girls have been found in pieces in the desert.

    Then Violet meets Nick Arai, a senior at the local high school where Violet and their team have gone undercover. Nick is sweet and gentle, and he's wonderful with Violet's son. Unfortunately Violet is a living fairytale and true love is a curse their kind can't escape. Against their better judgment, they find themselves falling for Nick. But they still have a mission and a homicidal ex who won't hesitate to eliminate anyone he views as a threat to their "love." When evidence suggests Bluebeard isn't the real killer, Violet has to deal with a threat on two fronts: Bluebeard wants Violet back and Nick dead, and a centuries-old evil called the Dethlysser has targeted Nick...

    Summary

    You know this story. Or you think you know. You are right. But you are also wrong.

    Hades/Persephone + reincarnation fic + some Bluebeard + some Beauty and the Beast= this thing. Persephone is stolen away, Hades is cursed, and no one handles things well.

    Summary

    A rewrite of several fairy tales by Perrault, to make them fit into a universe/society where everyone has the name of their soulmate appear on their left wrist when they are sixteen.

    The fairy tales will only be slightly rewritten, I want to keep them as close to the original as possible and will only change those parts of the plot that I feel would have developed differently in a society that has to deal with soulmarks being a thing. I'll try to reflect the different interpretations society might have for what the soulmarks mean (it could be the person you are to marry, someone that changes your life or your true love etc.).

    Inspired by AMarguerite's wonderful soulmark AU for Austen's Pride & Prejudice: An Ever Fixed Mark. It planted the image of Col. Fitzwilliam reading Perrault's fairy tales to Elizabeth Bennet in my mind and has forced me to write this.

    Summary

    Trust. The most important thing every relationship is built upon. At least that's what he heard. Despite his previous relationships, all the wives he had, the man called Bluebeard felt he was far from an authority on the subject. (Rating may change in later chapters) ((Also, cheerier than you might expect... after the intro))

    Summary

    I need to say some things about this. It was for a class at uni: Textual Intervention (basically fanfiction the class) I had to do something with the fairy-tale, Bluebeard. I decided to modernize it.

    This is proof I can’t write heterosexuals. It reads like bad 50 Shades of Gray fanfiction. Which in itself is technically bad Twilight fanfiction. So it reads like bad fanfiction of bad fanfiction. Twice recycled shit. Because of this, as a joke I handed it in called 50 Shades of Toxic. The man in this is named Toxic because I used a humanization of a Transformers character of mine. The main female in this, I used Madison as a stand-in name, but liked it, so after I handed this in I changed a few things around to make it my JeanMarco baby. Armin is in here as her uncle, though not related by blood.

    Summary

    In Irene’s house people walk flinchingly past restraints hanging from walls and artfully placed toyboxes to find the one locked door in the building. They shiver slightly at it, wondering what bloody kink-spattered revelation might lie behind it, what could possibly be worse than all of this.

    A (very loose) retelling of Bluebeard for Let's Write Sherlock challenge 2.
