    Summary

    There was a faint tracing of scales along the woman's cheekbones, tracing down her thin arms and lean thighs. The nipples on her pale, almost flat breasts were dark as night. Fiery red curls fell over dagger-sharp shoulders sprayed gently with more black scales, and the golden eyes were wide and snake-like. The woman was beautiful, but hardly human.

    "Crawly," the woman said with disgust. "Was that the best you could do, angel?"

    "I said I didn't have much imagination." Aziraphale's lips were heavy, and she was almost sure she wasn't forming the words properly. There was some kind of spell over her, holding her almost immobile. The venom must have been paralytic. If she had been human, she supposed she would have been dead. Her corporation didn't like it much either. "What name would you prefer I use for you?"

    The stranger tipped her head on one side, considering. "Crowley?"

    Aziraphale almost laughed. The whole situation was simply too irritating. If she was to die now, at the hands of some local deity, the paperwork hardly bore thinking about. And her precious work on Sappho's poetry, gone.

    "Crowley, then. You're a nymph of some kind, I take it?"

    Summary

    Set in Tangled: Before Ever After

    Eileen Fitzherbert likes to think she is adjusting fairly well to life in the castle, no longer under the pressure to fight to survive.

    And even if Rapunzel only loves her as a friend, she's happy. She really is, and she really likes the peace and quiet.

    Peace and quiet that is abruptly shattered right before Rapunzel's coronation.

    Summary

    That was okay. He knew it could not be the way they wanted it to, live together until they were old, and eventually Taehyung would be married and Jeongguk would have to live with that. He would bear it like countless other men like him have had to, over and over, with only the morning light after to see them. They wouldn’t be in stories, poets wouldn’t write about them. But he knew it had to be right, the soft words Taehyung would whisper against his neck, the slow sway of a dance as the candle burns down. The light made their skin pretty and golden. That had to be right.

    Summary

    After the apocalypse, Crowley and Aziraphale have settled comfortably into their new lives in the South Downs. A day trip to the British Museum starts a conversation about history, poetry, and the nature of their lives in the new world they've chosen. Poems are read and time is made up for, together.
    -------------------
    "Oh, angel." Crowley leaned over and placed a kiss to Aziraphale’s temple, then her forehead. Her voice was almost pleading. "It just...it just means we have that much more time to make up for, that's all."

    Aziraphale nodded and smiled, a little sadly. "Not just for our own sake, I think. Kiss me?"

    "Always," Crowley answered.

    Summary

    Time after time, living the same moment over and over again, Agatha was at the verge of madness as she tried to figure out what exactly had she done wrong. It was a popular saying that nothing would last forever, but they wouldn’t wish for that if they knew what it meant.

    Summary

    From the kinkmeme: "Unrequited love. No secret pinning. No slow burn. No mutual affection whatsoever. Crowley is deeply, absolutely and fiercely in love with Aziraphale : Aziraphale appreciates his company and might even consider him his best friend, but it doesn't go farther than that and never will; it's completely, hopelessly one-sided."

    Summary

    Too Ticki’s cabin rested in the woods, at the very edge of what was considered Moomin Valley. Tucked away by a spattering of pine and oak trees, and built by hand, it was a small cabin, but a cozy one, homely, with its dark fern green curtains, and furniture carved from dark oak with accents of navy blue cushions and tablecloth. Grey lace and stitchings accented the dark wood and navy blue further, a medley of dark colors that welcomed the shadows of storm clouds of winter, her favorite season, while still not letting in the cold and dreariness of winter in.

    Something as bright as Mumble was stood out amongst the muted colors, with hair like a river of fire and skin like fresh cream, smooth and pale, and the baby pink blush high on her cheeks and around her puffy, teary eyes. In Too Ticki’s cabin, Mumble stood out like a fiery sunset with cotton candy clouds over an inky dark ocean.

    “Oh dear,” Too Ticki said.

    Summary

    Ginny doesn’t notice the cool autumn air licking at the skin of her back. She’s ablaze with passion and want, her fire-skinned hands spreading across Luna’s moon-wax skin like the flame that devoured Serra de Sintra once. Lunae Mons, the ancients called them. Moon mountains, dwelling of Diana the Huntress, Diana of the underworld, Diana of the thrice-splitting way. But it is not Diana that Ginny worships with her hands and mouth, it is not Diana for whom Ginny’s heart sings hymns and psalms (Luna is a goddess in her own right, ruling over apple trees and old wooden stairs, overseeing windowsills and rocks and garden hedges.)

    In the wake of her breakup with Harry, Ginny moves in with Luna and falls in love.

    Summary

    The Legend of hades and persephone, retold through the lovers of Akira and Shiori.

    Full of gay girls, more consent than the old translations and a bunch of sappho quotes because it’s gay greek mytholgy.

    "I declare
    That Later On
    Even in an age unlike our own
    Someone will remember who we are."
    (~Sappho)
