    Summary

    AU ending for "Five Times Frederick Wentworth Had the Breath Knocked Out of Him On the Ice (and one time he let out a breath he didn’t know he was holding)," where Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth were pairs skaters and childhood sweethearts before a disastrous break-up. Years later, Frederick's an NHL superstar and Anne's a stage manager after her solo figure skating career ended with a career-ending injury at the Olympics.

    They're finally friends again... but then they get caught in a snowstorm and have to shelter in a shack where there's only one bed. What are they to do? ;)

    Summary

    The hunger is constant: the unspeakable, dark craving for the flickering flame of life inside another person, the urge to take and take until the eyes glaze over and there’s nothing left to burn. Ted’s got a few decades’ worth of practice at keeping a tight lid on it by now. Still, some days are harder than others.

    But annoying people into being the best versions of themselves they can be—well, that’s doing them a favor in the long run, ain’t it?

    [A What We Do in the Shadows AU. Ted Lasso is the nicest energy vampire you’re ever likely to meet. Promise.]

    Summary

    Jaime didn’t like the Starks at all. He didn’t like their earnestness and honesty and prudishness, he didn’t like their cold heavy-walled castle, he didn’t like their frozen block of a realm, and he especially didn’t like Robb Stark, who had saved his son’s life and been kind to him and got him to sleep, and what business of his was it to have done any of those things?
