    Summary

    Young god of love Simonides is tasked by his father, the god of war, to bring about the ruin of a mortal prince to punish his blasphemy. However, once Simonides sees his intended victim, he begins to have misgivings. Prince Tyrannus might have offended the gods with his very existence, but all Simonides can see is how beautiful and lonely he is.

    Or, a very loose interpretation of the Eros and Psyche myth.

    Summary

    In the depth of the palace of King Minos of Crete lurks a creature known as the Minotaur.

    Baz, prince of Athens and chosen of the god Poseidon, has heard the stories. And now he’s volunteered to come to Crete as one of the annual tributes—to dance with the king’s bulls and fulfill his destiny. He just wants to survive the bulls, protect his people, and go home.

    But what if the Minotaur isn’t a monster—but just a boy? And what if instead of slaying him, Baz fell in love with him?

    A Carry On retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, set in Bronze Age Crete.

    Written for Carry On Through the Ages 2021.

    Summary

    In 2013, when Gemma T. Leslieʼs final book of the Simon Snow Series was ought to be put out, Cath tried herself to give answers to all of the questions still left unsaid and to elaborate her own final chapter for her hero.

    Flash forward to 2021, in a parallel universe, here I am trying myself to do what Cath wanted to. (Only, I am real and Rainbow Rowell is too.)

    Simon Snow, The Ex Chosen One, The Blue-Eyes-Bronze-Curls-Leather-Wings-Anxiety Boy, and his dead handsome boyfriend are coming back to England after their "trip" to America.

    Things have changed and stayed the exact same way they were in America, and now itʼs up to Simon, Baz and their friends (some new, some old) to sort it all out. Will The Ex Chosen One save the day, again? Will Baz’s quest for his identity lead to the hoped conclusion? What’s Shepard’s role in this? Can Agatha and Penny see their worth, in the end?

    There's only one way to set things clear: looking for the answers at Watford.

    Summary

    “Snow,” He stage-whispers. There’s only a few inches between their faces; Simon Snow smells like cinnamon and sweat and strawberry shampoo. There’s a freckle on the tip of his nose that Baz hadn’t noticed before. It’s faint, and vaguely heart-shaped. He’d like to kiss it.

    “Yeah?” It could be a trick of the light, or Baz’s hyperactive imagination, or maybe just stupid hope, but he’d swear it on his mother’s grave: Simon glances at his lips as he says it.

    “Did you know,” (Baz can’t say he’s been this close to anyone except Penny or Wellbelove, and it was very different then. His heart didn’t beat this fast and his breath didn’t come this short and he most certainly wasn’t fighting the urge to kiss either of them.) “That I’m the gayest man this side of California?”

    He can hear the hitch in Simon’s voice, and then a wide grin replaces the anxiety on the boy’s face. “Shit, really? Which side? That’s like, directly across or something.”

    -------

    After drunk texting the Crown Prince, Simon gets caught up in a fake relationship with Baz. While dodging the paparazzi, their friendship develops, and Simon struggles to keep his secrets.

    Summary

    This story picks up just after "Wayward Son." Simon, Baz, Penelope, Agatha, and Shepard head to the airport and plan to face the danger back home. This work started as a way to finish Baz and Simon's conversation on the beach and ended up developing into what I would envision and hope for in the final book of this trilogy.

    The group takes on the threat against Watford, discovers the truth about what happened to Lucy and Natasha, unlocks the secrets of Simon's magic, and finally learns once and for all the meaning of the Chosen One prophecy. It's full of humor, tragedy, revelations, and most of all- love.

    Summary

    Baz doesn't know where he and Simon stand after that moment on the beach in Wayward Son. He also doesn't know if he can ask. All he really does know is that he's still in love with Simon and he has to find a way to say it before he runs out of time again.

    Summary

    There aren’t enough period-drama AUs for Carry On so here you go:

    A completely self-indulgent Pride and Prejudice AU with a gay twist. Other than that, this is literally Pride and Prejudice.

    “Why haven’t you found a wife yet, Simon?” She’d asked me that night. I simply blinked at her. The truth was, I wasn’t quite sure. Women simply didn’t interest me in the way they were supposed to; at least, none of the women I’d ever met had interested me other than Penny and Agatha, and I could never look at them as any more than friends.

    Perhaps, one day, I’ll meet a woman who interests me like she’s supposed to, and we’ll marry and have children and lead the rest of our lives in happiness. Perhaps I just haven’t met the right woman. Perhaps when I do I’ll no longer lay awake at night wondering if there might be something wrong with me.

    Perhaps I’ll have dreams of her rather than the faceless men who plague my sleep with their sweet lips and embrace…

    I answer none of this to Penny. Instead, I agree with her. “I guess I don’t want to settle either.” Is what I go with, and she smiles at me.

    Summary

    Professor Malory encourages his colleague, Martin Bunce (working under the guise of being a normal renown parapsychologist and magical folklore researcher), to head to Henrietta, Virginia, to investigate the mysterious ley lines that cause energy surges and an increase in paranormal activity along the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    However, Mr. Bunce has a different plan. He believes that by visiting Cabeswater National Park with his two summer interns he may be able to figure out a way to return magic to the remaining dead spots and possibly return Simon Snow's magic once and for all.

    A Raven Cycle x Carry On crossover set after the events of Carry On. It takes place during events in The Raven Cycle but will not be exactly cannon. Things are definitely out of order, but I'm going to try to stay as close to cannon as possible (and of course shenanigans will be had). Contains massive spoilers for the WHOLE Raven Cycle.
