    Summary

    Anne Ilao has always put her family first. It's the Filipino American way. Her father and sister, Walter and Eliza, cared more about their friends. Her sister, Maria, cared too much about everything - but especially her in-laws. So, it has always been up to Anne to care about the family as a whole. It's what she promised her mom she would do, before she passed.

    The one time she considered refusing this job, letting her family fend for themselves, was about 8 years ago. The year she met Erick Wentworth. He left (she broke both of their hearts), but now he's back.

    Anne is forced to confront her past, the one she's been trying very hard to forget, and confront her present. Is this the life she wants? Or really - can she go after the life she wants?

    Summary

    The year 1796 sees England as a scandal-ridden country. Forced marriages are all too common, fathers of young ladies make sure to always have a marriage license ready, wealthy gentlemen make sure to never be alone in a room with a female, not even their own mothers. In the county of Hertfordshire, for example, no fewer than 78 % of the newly-wed couples give ‘to avoid a scandal’ as the main reason for their marriage (compared to 43 % in 1785), a recent survey showed.

     

     

    Dire times force the British government to enact drastic measures, and Elizabeth Bennet is forced to seek out the education of a chaperon in order to comply with the new laws.

    For Debbie there's three things she's loves; being loved, jewelry, and committing homicide.

    Who would expect that joining the Addams family would allow her to indulge in all three?

    Prompt from Siszx:
    Happy coming B day! Yay! (why am I so excited...) I’m thinking it might be a good idea to have behind scene POVs from both Cris and Agnes from ep 6-10 on how they became closer to each other...It might not be difficult for Cris to care about people as it is who he naturally is. But an intimate relationship? I bet he hasn’t been there with anybody for quite long... Well, is it too much to ask???

    Or: Cris and Agnes' relationship is complicated, it's weird, and it's worth it.

    Prequel now up!

    What Rios and Raffi said to each other on the way back to La Sirena from Synthville, after he protested the mind meld and told Agnes she was inolvidable.

    The title comes from an online description of Agnes, with the poster lamenting that s/he would never understand what Rios saw in her. I keep pondering that question. I’m no nearer an answer.

    But I had so much fun writing this!

    Elnor’s right about the tension, but it’s not sexual tension.

She is temperamentally and professionally inclined to distrust it. Or maybe Jurati is exactly what she appears to be - a lonely scholarly type. Or both...

    "Watch out, Boo!" I shriek, throwing myself into the cycle lane to push my best friend out of the path of an approaching phalanx of bicycles and back onto the pavement.

    The world goes white for a second.

    All at once, I find myself sitting on a comfortable, overstuffed sofa in a bland, warmly-lit room. Blinking my eyes open, I read the bright green text splashed across the opposite wall.

    "Welcome! Everything is fine."

    "She'd warned him to stay out of the woods after dusk years ago. But he couldn't help himself. And now she couldn't help him as the venom slowly spread through his body. In a month's time, he'd become a werewolf. "
    Esther Denham is the notorious witch of the woods: distant, intimidating and probably lethal. Yet, with his friends being walking disasters, how could Lord Babington do anything else but seek her out? He seeks her out twice for his friends, and once for her sake, but you know what they say, third time's a charm. No normal human walks into those woods thrice and lives to tell the tale.

    Summary

    “Yes, but every lady prefers her own bathing dress,” Mrs. Parker said.  Her certainties were few, but this was one of them, and she spoke with unaccustomed authority.  “Don’t you agree, Miss Heywood?”

    “If she has her own, I suppose she always prefers it to one that can be had by everybody,” Charlotte said, “and saves her envy for one owned only by someone else.”

    She herself had none.  The family economy had never allowed for the luxury of either a gown that would be seen by no one or one that existed only to be speedily removed.  She would either have to trust to Mr. Parker’s opinion of the healthfulness of the public dresses or allow the sea itself to ensure her modesty.

    “I’ll be blunt,” Saperstein said. “The released powder appears to be having some unintended side effects. We saw the signs in the lab at first, and soon we’re going to be seeing them up here. Damn this fully-functioning ventilation system!” He paused. “I regret to inform you all that the KinderKare building is about to become a love shack, as chronicled in the song ‘Love Shack.’”
