    Summary

    Everyone in the district seemed to know my story. I was the wife that tried to run. I lived happily with my husband, Commander Finn Avery and our twin daughters, Beatrice and Saoirse. We were a part of the beginnings of Gilead. Finn was an influential man, and I was a fertile woman. Many people did not know, however, that I was pregnant by our driver Jonas and not Finn. Before there was Gilead, there was Finn, Jonas, and I. We were an unstoppable trio.

    Unless you were three bisexual people in a country that saw same-sex attraction as a sin punishable by death. We hid our relationship. Jonas was simply a close family friend who held our same ideals. Finn and I both knew we could not lose Jonas.

    As Gilead grew, I saw the country that it would become. I could not bear having my girls grow up there. Finn and Jonas agreed. By the time I made a run for the border, I was already pregnant. After I was caught with Beatrice and Saoirse, the district council knew that there must be punishment. Beatrice and Saoirse returned to live with Finn and Jonas. I got sent to the Red Center. I was then placed with Commander Smith after his previous handmaid died in a traffic accident.

    Summary

    You are a new Handmaid, your first assignment is at the home of Commander Kylo Ren. His Wife hates you. And you wished he did, too. It'd make it much easier to ignore the way he looks at you, the way he speaks to you, when she isn't there. But the hardest thing to ignore is the way he touches you.

    Summary

    In their early days teaching in Connecticut, Benjamin Tallmadge and Nathan Hale advocated for the education of women, offering some of the first formal classes to female students in the United States.

    But what if Ben and Nathan were set in Gilead, the world of the Handmaid's Tale?

    (There is no rape in this story, just gender politics.)

    Summary

    A handmaid's thought process after the Ceremony. (and perhaps beyond that as well.)

    (This fic has rape/non-con elements- they happen prior to the beginning of the fic but there are allusions to it so stay safe.)

    Summary

    Will knew Hannibal before this time. Will was still ashamed to admit he even thought about Hannibal in such a way, a way that made his skin prickle up with goosebumps and his mind wander. He’d never done anything about it, despite the fevered glances and lingering touches they shared. Will doesn’t think about these much now.

    The fact is, Will is no longer Will.

    Will simply is fertility, the beacon of hope and future of untainted reproduction.

    Summary

    The Republic of the Downworld offers omegas, like Alec, one purpose to life: To breed children for alphas. If he tries to fight or break away he will be punished and hanged at the wall or sent away to die slowly of a magical sickness. But even in such a repressed state desire cannot obliterate desire - especially if the two fighting for love are fated to be together.

    Updated and new bits added in.

    Summary

    Set in the world of The Handmaid's Tale, Brienne meets Jaime Lannister. The story exclusively follows Brienne's perspective as she struggles to survive in a male dominated and oppressive dystopia, all while trying to maintain her honor.

    This work is dark and uncomfortable at times (okay, often), much like GoT, ASOIAF and The Handmaid's Tale. It isn't a fluffy story by any means, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel! If you love angst, mystery and slow burns, this is for you!

    Summary

    If I close my eyes and concentrate hard enough, I can almost forget him. I can almost forget everything.

    I can almost forget his face, his name . . . the way his muscles moved beneath the skin, stretched taut like an animal hide stretched over a drum.

    Oh, dear God . . .

    Please don’t let me forget him.

    Summary

    A year ago @thismidnight and I decided to write a story arc for Season 3 of the Handmaid's Tale.

    We imagined Nick and June's tearful goodbye the night before Nick's deployment to Chicago (Slow Dancing in a Burning Room). We imagined stolen moments at their meeting in Washington, DC (Kiss Quick), and the letters they exchanged while he was at war (Hold On To Hope Love). We imagined their steamy reunion and confessions at a hidden cabin in Michigan (Safe and Sound), and their arrival in Canada (How You Survived The War).

    Now we want to share their happy ending. A year after their escape. Bringing this series to a close so that Nick, June, Holly and Hannah can begin a new chapter together in safety.

    Summary

    Commander Hawthorne's Driver longs for some kind of outlet for his thoughts, and this journal, scrapped together, is the result. In a world one secret can easily destroy you, he attempts to survive. Whether or not he'll do so depends on if he can be smart enough.

    This is my first Handmaid's Tale Fanfiction. I'm out of practice with writing. But I'm posting this anyway.
