    What do Halloween, coffee, T.S. Eliot, and pumpkins have in common?

When a strong desire to read a certain book brings him face-to-face with the cute guy from his English seminar he's been sneaking glances at all semester, Dean's October takes a turn for the interesting, spooky, and quite possibly the romantic, too. Only time will tell.....

    Summary

    Draco's always been drawn to Hermione in some way, he has for years and can't explain. It'd be easier if he could just get a moment alone with her to see why, but she's never alone!
    At the Yule Ball, Draco finally has a moment with Hermione and they share that time coming to a "truce". A battle of brains starts between the two as they form a friendly rivalry to excel in their classes. What started as a "make Weasley jealous" game becomes something more, quickly, and with far reaching consequences.
    With Harry's Triwizard Tournament taking much of the spotlight, and Hermione acting strangely with Malfoy, Ron's jealousy starts manifesting in ugly ways, until it causes a break in school tradition so shocking that people will speak of it for ages to come.

    A story where Draco finds his redemption at the pivotal moment, deciding that helping keep Harry alive to prevent the resurrection of Voldemort is more important than bitter school rivalries.

    Summary

    After meeting Dumbledore at a party with Slughorn, he employs you as a teacher at Hogwarts for the new subject of theatre/literature of the Wizard World. One of the first tasks to do is to form a theatre group and organise a performance at the end of the school year. Yet, this subject is rare at Wizard schools and you are met with quiet a lot of suspicion from your students and colleagues. This causes more than one sleepless night and after Dumbledore can’t take your exhausted face every morning at the teacher’s meeting, he sends you to Severus Snape to get a potion that’ll help you sleep. Reluctantly you go to the teacher you’ve been most afraid of but with every visit your feelings for him change for the better. The menacing potion master seems to feel the same..

    Summary

    Dean writes a poem to process his feelings for Castiel.
    Castiel finds it and answers him back with a poem.

    I started writing this before Season 15 aired, so most of it was speculation that turned into wishful thinking. The poems referenced here are William Shakespeare's "Sonnet 57: Being your slave, what should I do but tend" and Ben Johnson's "Song: to Celia ["Drink to me only with thine eyes"]". The lines referenced from the King James Version of the Bible are Song of Solomon 1:2 and Song of Solomon 4:16. All other poems are my own.

    Summary

    It was hard trying to make a career off of acting, it really was. It was harder working a second job at midnight shift just to have a stable income. It was even harder raising his little sister, Karen, on his own at the age of twenty-three.

    But what was hardest for Kenny McCormick was worrying about the relationship of his best friends.
    Stan is over-exercising and he has strange cuts on his face.
    Kyle's spirit is withering, and his body seems to be doing just the same.
    Worst of all, they were refusing to let Kenny help them. Something was obviously wrong, so why were they shutting him out?

    Summary

    After Odin’s death, Hela doesn’t appear on Midgard, and Thor isn’t interrupted by her in his growing grief and rage at his father’s death. He accidentally kills Loki in his anger, and only barely manages to bring him back. Since his brother would not survive travelling the Bifrost, Thor takes him to Tony to seek medical help. As the Avengers involuntarily get more and more involved in the family dynamics between Thor and Loki, they realise that this becomes all less and less about protecting people from Loki, and more and more about protecting Loki from Thor instead.

    Summary

    "You would risk exposure to save me?"

    She looked down and nodded, unable to meet his eye.

    'Why?"

    "Do you know Elvish Your Highness?"

    "Of course."

    "Then you know why."

    ~ ~ ~
    Once thought to be extinct, the Dark Elves, lead by the infernal Malekith, seek to invade Asgard.

    Made aware of their presence and the looming threat to his people, Odin Allfather sends out a call to the far corners of the Realm Eternal. The call to arms. Every able bodied man is to report for duty to repel the invaders.

    Her brother is no different. And yet he is. Permanently injured during the last war, he is unable to fight, yet is determined to do so. For the honour of the family. Unable to allow such a thing, she takes his place, unknown to her family until it is too late.

    Thrust into the heart of a war, her mettle is tested. For she hides more than who she is. Will her lies hold out when confronted by the Silvertongued Prince himself? Or will they crumble and all her secrets be brought to light?

    Summary

    Naruto Uzumaki loves the Theatre. Specifically, Konoha Theatre. It's a place where he'd eventually, finally, been welcomed with open arms and accepted - in a city where he grew up parentless and alone, victim to his parent's rumored reputation, and where everyone treated him like an outcast. With the big question mark still above his head surrounding his parent's death and their lives prior, he makes it his life's work to not let his unfortunate childhood bring him down. Sasuke Uchiha - the stage manager and general backstage crew member - is his polar opposite, and a huge thorn in his side. After Naruto's initial offer of friendship was rudely turned down, he thought there was absolutely no way they would ever become friends, but now that Sasuke is finally venturing out on to the stage and treading the boards alongside him, will that change?

    Twinflames/Soulmates, Theatre/Modern AU, NaruSasu/SasuNaru - there will be hard times ahead, but that makes the pay off all the more sweet...

    Summary

    ‘As she looked up through her bangs she saw Santana.

    “You alright there, Berry? Almost had a great fall.” Rachel was quite certain Santana was alluding to the nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty and suggesting she was an egg, but there was this slight concern in her eyes as she levelled her, grip still on her shoulders.

    “I-I’m fine.” One often loses eloquence when struck by love. The poetry comes afterwards.’

    Rachel convinces herself that she’s in love with Santana Lopez. Romantic schemes ensue.

    Summary

    "Just like that, all attention was on the newcomer - Giorno, he’d said his name was - and the potential abilities of his Stand and while the whole piss debacle had been very entertaining, it was clear Giorno didn’t like to kiss and tell, and Mista still hadn’t gotten his cake, dammit! What a shit day it was turning out to be."

     

    Or: Mista's thoughts about life, love, and a certain blond as he goes through the adventure of a lifetime.

    and so he stepped onto the stage, a bird from a cage, the judge's eyes fixated on every inch of his body - analysing every flaw, every mole, every hair on his arm raised to attention for the prying eyes of the public.
