    Summary

    Aesop Carl is an overworked chemistry student who barely makes ends meet. Not wanting to give up his research, he takes a job as the university choir’s pianist. But to his surprise, he’s fallen back in love with the art of music, all thanks to the city’s famed sopranist, Joseph Desaulnier. As the two explore the world through symphony, they come to realize that not everyone enjoys their creations, and quickly, the world turns on Aesop in retaliation for him ‘stealing’ their prized singer.

    Now, the star-crossed lovers must defy what society wants for them and fight against becoming a tragedy.

    Summary

    *edited repost of The Future Beckons Chapter 5*

    "To me, fair friend, you never can be old,
    For as you were when first your eye I eyed,
    Such seems your beauty still. "

    Larcei knows that the princes of Dozel are fighting over her. She knows it, she's annoyed with it, and yet...
    She can't help but fall for them.

    So, she asks for help.
    ---
    Iucharba feels like he's fighting an uphill losing battle. His older brother, Iuchar, is once again stealing the spotlight from him. This time, it's because of his elegant displays of love for Larcei. Iucharba knows that Iuchar is dedicated to making Larcei love him. He knows that.

    He's jealous, but not jealous enough to fight on the opposite side of a war from his brother.
    They hated their father, after all, and the horrors of war helped them make up, just a little bit. (It also helped that Larcei had convinced them, in the middle of a battlefield, mind you, to stop fighting like toddlers over a toy. And no, they did not consider Larcei a toy.)

    That doesn't change that he's jealous, though. He's in dire need of an outlet to vent his frustrations.

    Who could be more perfect for that than the best friend of the girl he loves?

    Summary

    December 2039 thru sometime in 2040.

    An android from Bridget's past contacts her for assistance when he finds his business, converted Eden clubs, in more trouble then he can handle.

    Based on BBC Sherlock episode "A Scandal in Belgravia" with embellishment from episode "A Study in Pink" and Sherlock Holmes short story "The Problem of Thor Bridge."

    We stared at each other for a minute daring the other to start the chase.

    “Are you ready?” Connor finally asked. I nodded and put my hand on the door handle.

    “Ok,” he said, flourishing with his hand, “Go.”

    I calmly started my timers and got out of the car, deliberately choosing to walk directly in front of him. I walked forward to the next line of cars, turned and held my middle fingers up then walked out of sight. I saw Connor grin vindictively before I disappeared behind the cars.

    Summary

    It was with heavy, bone-deep resignation that Ciel opened his eyes to the familiar canopy of his bed. For a long, hazy moment, there were no thoughts. Then a whisper slipped into his mind: “Ah. Another morning. Damn.”

    ...

    There was one thing, it seemed, that sparked some motivation in him; the same single thing which kept him going through the worst of it: the dark, bitter resentment that Ciel held inside his stomach: his festering rage and refusal to show weakness, especially before the creature who had seen him at his lowest.

    Summary

    Just a Chicken and Crispy Bacon slowly learning how to let other people in after their respective traumatic childhoods at the hands of a broken Hero society.
    Ft. Hamlet references

    Takes place Pre-Liberation Army arc. Canon compliant up until that point.
    _________________________________________

    About a month into his assignment, Hawks received the order from The League to take down a Pro, naturally he’d called the President and asked for her assistance.

    “What is it Hawks.”

    “Yo Madam Prez, so I was talking to my contact the other day-”

    “Get to it Hawks, I’m busy.”

    “They want me to kill a Pro.”

    “And why are you contacting me?”

    “What- because I can’t-”

    “Are you aware of Jeanist’s current condition? He is not in condition to defend himself in the case of any attack or accident that should befall him. You were instructed to do anything necessary to gain the League of Villain’s trust, do not contact me again Hawks until you have a place among their ranks.”

    The line promptly went dead and Hawks came to the horribly realization of exactly what this mission was.

    A suicide attempt wrapped in political favors and unpaid debts.

    Summary

    Its literally the play Hamlet but I rewrote it as a novel in (mostly) modern English because god gave me free will and I'm gonna make him regret it. Lines from the original play have been edited to make it more readable for audiences that aren't over 400 years dead, but the plot is the same. Each chapter will (likely) be one scene.

    Summary

    Lesbian gf: My thoughts about how they’ve given the largest female role in this production to a man aside, congrats on Beatrice.

    Me:ty, ty, don’t be salty just becoz lan qiren decided im the prettiest

    He follows it up with the most fabulous hairflick gif he can find. She sends him back an eyeroll and a pukey emoji.

    Lesbian gf: Speaking of. How about that Benedick, huh? Followed by two side eye emojis and the Jordan Peele sweating GIF for good measure.

    He pulls up the email again. He’d been so giddy at the sight of Wen Qing and Jiejie’s names on the list that he’d barely read the rest of it. He scrolls back up to the top, reading it properly this time.

    And there, just above his own name is:

    Benedick- Lan Wangji.

    Well, fuck.

    OR.

    The Drama School/Shakespeare AU no one asked for. In their final year at the Gusu Acting School, and with their agency showcase fast approaching, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji are cast opposite each other as quarrelling lovers Beatrice and Benedick in ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. The only problem is, they hate each other.

    Don’t they?
