    Summary

    The year is 1832, and Jean is a young village midwife, living a solitary life on a stretch of wild coast in the British colony of Nova Scotia. Late one night, a strange woman pounds on her door in dire need of her aid. The mysterious newcomer barely speaks a word of English (is that strange, growling language Gaelic?), but Jean still can't help being somewhat smitten with the comely, dark-eyed woman, especially as she comes to know her better. Muirin is clever, and graceful, and she might be hiding a secret. Maybe several--and perhaps her devoted marriage to the fisherman out past the point isn't quite what it seems.

    A historical fantasy variation on a traditional folktale, this story acknowledges the darker side of the lore it is based in--and finds a way to set things right.

    Summary

    Enjolras presses his lips together. He already looks pained, and Grantaire hasn't even opened his mouth yet. That's got to be a record, even for them.

    "I need a favor," he says at last.

    "With what?" says Grantaire. "Ooh, are you forming a cult? Can I join? I'd be awesome at cults, I just know it." He ticks off his qualifications on his fingers. "I love chanting, I look great in robes—"

    (High school AU. Grantaire the disaffected stoner is pulled into a cause bigger than himself. Or: in which there are pretend boyfriends for great justice.)

    Summary

    How do you know who you really are?

     

    When Violet first made an anonymous account to post to the Confessional, a new online forum to post secrets, she didn't go by Violet. Actually, she didn't go by 'she', either-- hence the choice. No better way to keep your real self out of suspicion than to make an account with a different gender, right? Well, years into the gambit, she's become the most popular blogger on the site, and she finds that her online persona feels more like her than the boy she has to pretend to be at home. When a group of dedicated hackers decide to find out who's behind her account once and for all, Violet will have to face the world finding out her biggest secret yet.
