    Summary

    Castiel gets into a little trouble with his angel family and goes to the only person he can still trust for help. As usual, things get messier before they get better.
    This is an retelling/AU of season 6 where Cas doesn't become Godstiel and instead Dean, Sam and Cas fight Raphael together. Well, sort of. Nothing is ever that simple with these three.
    ...

    Bobby steps closer. “He does seem …off.”

    “Says he’s still him.” Dean says neutrally, letting the smile drop.

    “Well, would he know if he wasn’t?”

    Good point, Dean thinks wearily, pouring in detergent and slamming the lid down, jabbing the start button with the same force he’d gank a demon. He trusts Cas, he really does. To have his back in a fight. To protect them from those who would seek to do harm. But his personal judgement? Cas can be… morally ambiguous at times. Part and parcel of being an Angel he supposes. Though how long they can still say that even is unclear.

    “He’s falling.”

    Summary

    But, Madison figures, if she'd had more time to think about it, she would have imagined a scene like something from a movie she could so perfectly picture Kevin in, maybe slipping an envelope at him with baby pictures inside across a table at a coffee shop like she's a private detective or from the Irish mob.

    Maybe it'd even be raining.

    _____

    Kevin, Madison, and navigating through this whole drinking tea one afternoon and getting pregnant thing.

    Summary

    After moving to LA on the promise of a leading role in a show which fell through before filming had even started, George wasn't doing the best, to say the least. After a year of constant auditioning, he could count the number of jobs he'd landed on one hand. And still not use two fingers.

    But, a lucky encounter in a club with a certain blond man who he was sure he knew from somewhere brings him new friends and opportunities, and life seems to finally be on the upswing once again.

    Summary

    Arya Trevelyan should not be alive. But as the sole survivor of Divine Justinia's Conclave, she is tasked with saving a world that seems to not even want her. To make matters worse, she's been made to work with a man who represents everything she fears about non-mages.

    This fic follows a very mage-sympathetic and very bisexual Human Inquisitor, mostly following the plot of DA: Inquisition. Romance exists in the fic but will not take priority until later on. General reference to themes of depression, violence, abuse of mages, addiction and withdrawal are present throughout the fic. Specific content warnings will appear at the start of chapters.

    Summary

    "Dear Alex,

    I know you're probably too busy to see this, but they said it'd help if I tried letting out the words that got stuck in my throat since it happened, so I've decided to write to you. Because out of everyone I know, you're the only one I truly trust to know about my weird and confusing thoughts, about the truths I’ve managed to hide from everyone."

    OR

    The High School AU where a young and naive Kara has to figure out some hard truths while dealing with a recent tragic loss. She relies on her mighty pen to put in writing all her experiences at the new school, as she navigates heartbreak, parties, cool kids, and a whole new world of firsts. Oh, there's also the matter of a certain pair of emerald eyes that seem to always be around.

    Summary

    “Book, look at yourself,” he says. “This is fucking sad. They’ve already lost their mom. Now they’re gonna lose you, too?”

    Booker can’t look at Joe. He can’t see those eyes— Sophie’s eyes— so concerned and so sad and so disappointed. “Fuck off,” he says. “Get the fuck out of my house.”

    Joe shakes his head. He bends over and saddles a duffel bag on his shoulder. “You want your sons back?” Joe says. “Get sober. Then we’ll talk.”

    Fourteen months after the death of his wife, Booker hits rock bottom. But he didn't know that getting sober would mean gaining so much more.

    Being the unreliable narrator of her own story was not something Romy had planned for. Granted, she also never thought that she’d befriend Ada Shelby, earn herself a favor from Polly Gray, and sometime later slowly fall for the weirdest man in London.

    Summary

    These little ideas turn up like mosquitoes when I'm trying (and failing) to write something else. So I decided to catch them and stuff them into drabbles to get them out of my head. They're not much each, but maybe folk will find something they like in here. I've got a handful I'll be putting up to start, and I guess I'll add more as they come along.

    CW: It's most likely a very mixed bag, happy, sad, nsfw, fluff, family, major character death, and so on. I've rated it at the highest rating of any individual work, on the grounds that that makes it easiest for readers to filter out content they're not ok with. But, for those who want to just read chapters of particular ratings, I'll put a rating (and any archive warnings) in the Chapter Title of each one so they can skip as suits. Additional tags will be in the notes.

    Summary

    Being the sole owner of The Quill & Painter had its perks in the beginning. Handsome young men showering Valentina with numerous gifts, countless declarations of love to the captivating, successful young woman. Valentina lived a comfortable life full of admiring onlookers and surrounded by the familiar scene of her crowded tavern.
    Now at twenty-six years old, barely scraping by in life, the young woman continues to run the bleak old tavern in the hopes of fulfilling a promise made years ago when she was just a naive, little girl full of life and wonder, oblivious to the hardships she would soon face in the world above.
    She thought she had experienced the worst after watching her beloved tavern slowly slip into a grim, run down state much like herself. However after one unfortunate encounter, she allowed herself to fall into the grips of despair at the hands of three unpleasant newcomers at her tavern.
    While wishing for an end to her misery, Valentina was unexpectedly saved, in more ways than one, by three strangers who happened upon the tavern on that same fateful night.
