    Summary

    Welcome to the first of what will hopefully be the Ace of Swords series! I decided to cram as much worldbuilding and cool magic shit into the Harry Potter universe as I possibly could and, when that didn’t work, i instead took it apart and decided to go off-the-rails and make a fix-it that features the best characters more prominently (read: Neville Longbottom will elbow his way into the main narrative and I dont care how).

    After recieving an odd but fateful tarot reading from professor Trelawney, Harry decides to run away from the Dursleys and change his life. He redesigns himself completely and gets a chance to really make a difference.

    if you’re looking for a semi-allegorical work about respect for nature and the beauty of the natural world then hey, here it is!

    this is not, however, meant to be a social or political allegory in any way (mentions of “the old ways” are not meant to be interpreted as “the good old days” and all the other things assholes say to justify slavery and gender roles) and if a misogynist or neo-nazi comes into my comments be warned... i’m MEAN

    Summary

    She is born but seconds after her brother, much quicker than should perhaps be possible. Small and frail, with skin that shimmers like dew in the night, and eyes the colour of a pale dawn sky that See more than they should, and a mind that remembers much quicker.

    Her Dad is Human, her Mother is Other, her Brother is Something, and she is Else. As twins they are Something Else, but while a Something can belong Anywhere, an Else can live nowhere but Elsewhere. She knows it well - she's tried for 18 years. So what else can she do but answer the call when the opportunity arises?

    The question is now, is she Human enough to remain Above, or will she find herself falling into waiting arms Underhill?

    Summary

    More than the loss of the skin—which was enough of a problem to be getting on with, thank you—the problem was, Aziraphale had done the wrong thing.

    If he could say to Gabriel that he'd simply seen a creature in distress and decided to help, he might not be forgiven, but he probably wouldn't be cast out. But, knowingly saving a human from drowning was beyond the pale. He was meant to be spying on them, not helping them.

    OR

    Aziraphale is a selkie whose lost skin is somewhere in the village of Tadfield; Crowley is a fay who considers Tadfield his personal garden to cultivate and protect. They're drawn to each other, but neither is willing to divulge their secret. Naturally, a lot of inconvenient feelings and small-town hijinks ensue anyway.

    Summary

    Amrod was meant to die at the burning of the Teleri Ships in Losgar, however, Ulmo had different plans.

    Melkor had invaded his domain and he needed to get rid of them, using his own creatures. Having a former ellon amongst them would not come amiss. So he offers a curse strong enough to counteract any oaths he had made.

    Now, many centuries later, and having forgotten he was ever an elf, Amrod's life is about to change again on an Irish shore.

    Summary

    Thatch knows that he's not supposed to rush in head first, not after the last few times that he's been cursed, but he won't watch someone else walk into the house of someone that he and Marco know was the last person to see over eighteen people. Getting cursed into a puppy, even if she says it's to help him find his true love, makes it that much worse.

    Summary

    A Beauty and the Beast retelling, with influences from the traditional BatB fairytale, Irish/Celtic mythology, and Disney's 1991 Beauty and the Beast. ~❦︎~ Athena Everleigh is a curious lass living in a village on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland in 1905. Nearing her sixteenth birthday, she faces a choice: to either live the life her mother prepared for her, full of magic, forests, ancient tales, and shapeshifting—or to become the rising Dublin socialite her father wants her to be. It is not until she begins working in a castle for a mysterious man that the answer becomes clear. Several weeks go by, but the longer she works for him, the more she realizes he may not even be a man at all. It turns out, he has a past all his own. And it is up to Athena to unravel it.

    Summary

    You can hear the singing? is written on the paper, Hui’s usual chicken scratch replaced with strong, clear characters in his urgency. When Wooseok nods, Hui takes the book back and writes something else, eyebrows drawn together in a small frown. What does it sound like? Hui’s second message says, and underneath it, are two words, written a few spaces apart. One says Clicks and the other says Words. Wooseok points to ‘words’ and Hui’s eyebrows shoot up, surprise flicking across his face. He writes again, scribbling furiously before scratching it all out and flipping to a new page, trying again. Do you know what it is?

    Wooseok shakes his head, raising one shoulder slightly and tilting his head towards Hui as if to say, ‘Do you?’

    -

    The aquarium is gearing up to open a new exhibit. One night, Wooseok hears something, or someone, singing in the tank.

    Summary

    "His eyes have always watched her like a wolf circling a lamb. A childhood game grew deep, dark, and dangerous. And now, he's addicted and she's the prize he craves."

    Estelle Vaile's parents, Cordelia and Calin, were another two victims of Lord Voldemort's first reign of terror, and she was just another unavoidable orphan of the war. Cordelia's family, The Greengrass Family, stepped up to raise the sweet, gentle girl with the help of Cordelia's childhood best friend, Narcissa Malfoy. Draco and Estelle's relationship is no longer the innocent childhood best friendship it used to be. Now, they're old enough for the complexities of high wizarding society to manipulate their every thought. But how will their years at Hogwart's influence their strange relationship?

    Summary

    Hubert had accepted that he would spend the rest of his life in that small cottage deep in the Aegir forest, carving out a poor man's life, in hiding from his past and the church. He did not desire nor thought he deserved happiness. That was, until Ferdinand.

    A folklore fantasy AU where Hubert faces his past and learns to love, and Ferdinand faces his future and learns to live.

    “Allow me to introduce myself. I am the new lord of the territory, Ferdinand von Aegir.”

    “It’s good to finally meet you,” Hubert replied, yet his pleasantries withered under the weight of suspicion, “but something tells me you didn’t come all this way in such a ferocious storm simply to introduce yourself.”

    Ferdinand shifted, squeezing his sodden hat tighter. “You are correct. I have a request if you would hear it.”
