    Summary

    All or most of the characters from Tangled: The Series, and Varian and the Seven Kingdoms in a modern setting. I'm gonna try my best to make this really good quality, so do not expect regular uploads. This will for the most part, not have much of an overarching plot, except for character relationships.

    Summary

    Susan reflects back on when she met her mother Freddie and honorary uncle Kris, told in a series of chronological vignettes over the course of a year. There's chess games, soup, hospital stays, a love story, some secrets, and a minimal amount of law. Court room drama adjacent (if that) because I know very little about whistleblowers. Are you ready for a Merry Christmas?

    Summary

    Charlotte Heywood has been working for Tom Parker on his Christmas Tree Farm while she continues her schooling to become a veterinarian. Her job is to care for the animals. As Christmas approaches, Tom's brother Sidney comes for a visit. An accident causes Sidney and Charlotte to take on the roles of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus in the Christmas Village.

    This is a SIDLOTTE story. No other story will ever do. Just a silly little short story for the Christmas season. Sort of a Hallmark Christmas movie with explicit scenes.

    Summary

    College hotshot and born noble Marquess Leopold "Leo" Tewksbury is the envy of his peers. Famous. Destined to be a Lord. Handsome beyond reason. Charming to most. Well-liked. Sometimes thought to be shallow, the obscenely wealthy and socially successful Viscount is at the top of his school's pecking scale.

     

    Enola Holmes on the flip side is beautiful but mouthy. Brilliant but quite abrasive to most of her fellow college goers, meaning that she doesn't really attract many boys. She has one, Shakespeare-obssessed friend.

     

    Soon Enola crosses paths with the campus 'IT' boy. And as annoying as he may be, he proves to be...well, she's not quite sure yet. But she's shuddering at the fact that she isn't completely against it either.

    Summary

    The Capulet pack and the Montague pack have been at each other's throats for as long as either of the families can remember, only kept at bay by the aging leader of the ancient Escalus pack.

Maybe this time, the stars will align just long enough for the youngest generation of feud-scarred children to find a different path.

    “what’s your name?” she asked.
    “ymir, might i ask yours?” she countered.
    the girl looked stunned, almost like no one had ever asked her name before
    “historia.” she said.
    historia she thought. she liked that name. liked the way it rolled over in her mind. “historia” she said. yep she liked the way it fell out of her mouth too.
    “yes?” historia asked.
    “i’m sorry for breaking into your….house. but i genuinely didn’t think anyone would be living up here. i mean, have you seen what it looks like? maybe you should hire housekeeping.”
    historia looked at her, eyes still as wide as ever, like she had never seen anything like her before. like the words ymir was saying were all foreign.
    “i’ve never seen what it looks like no.” she replied.
    “wait.. what?” but that meant..
    “i’ve never been outside of this tower before”.

    Summary

    I've always been a fan of the nutcracker ever since I was a kid so I decided to create a retelling of my favourite version of this christmas fairytale: The Nutcracker Prince from 1990.

    This is a more modern retelling and I've also changed a few details about certain characters such as their names and relationships. I also decided to add in a series of original event after the main story. hopefully this little note about will clear up any confusion about future content.

    I hope you enjoy!!!

     

    PS. If you haven't seen The Nutcracker Prince- I highly Recommend it!! However, the film has been removed from Youtube so I don't know how else you can watch it...

    Summary

    A Supernatural retelling of the fairytale East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

    Castiel is cursed by his angelic brothers for being too close to humanity. They put him in a form that will force him to watch humans but never be able to interact with them. To break the curse, Castiel must live with a righteous human for a year. They must sleep in the same bed together at night with Castiel in his true form. The catch? He can't explain what's happening and the human can’t ever look upon him at night during that year.

    The minute Castiel sees Dean, he knows this is the human that can help him. And with Sam sick with a terminal illness, maybe Castiel can help Dean too.

    Summary

    As luzes avermelhadas piscavam ritmadamente e a fumaça artificial cobria o ar, trazendo à pista de dança uma atmosfera quase que sombria mas, ainda sim, as pessoas dançavam, riam, cantavam. E, ao meio da multidão, Orfeu a viu pela primeira vez.

    Summary

    Miya Atsumu has nothing in common with Cinderella, except for the fact that he was blond, pretty, and he met the same guy in three different nights before he decided that the dark haired stranger was the love of his life.
    He was pretty sure he checked off the entire fairy tale list, so all he had to do was wait for the ‘happily ever after’ right?
    Turns out, retellings don’t always end the same way the original ones did, especially when the Cinderella only ever cleans up dead bodies and the Prince is low-key the heir to a multibillion dollar corporation.
    ---
    Inspired by the brain rot: “You’re clearly a dangerous individual doing questionable things but I owe a favor to your boss that’s why I fixed you up and I wasn’t supposed to meet you again but I did, because Jesus Christ how are you half dead every time I see you and HOLY SHIT is that a soulmark? Fuck this suicidal idiot is my soulmate.”
