    Summary

    Whitechapel, London 1894. Sophie Wickes and her family struggle to survive, melancholy eats away at her father more and more with each passing day, and her passion for cultivating flowers procures no income. She must swallow her pride and set aside her hatred for England’s aristocracy when she’s offered a chance of employment by the reclusive Lord Edgar Cushing to tend the gardens of his Rosenthorne Hall. However, the estate, its gardens, and their master is nothing what Sophie expected.

    The house? Rotting, dilapidated, hideous.

    The gardens? The husk of something alive, whimsical, and beautiful.

    The master? Faceless, nothing more than a voice from the shadows.

    Despite her fear and anger, Sophie becomes enthralled by the garden’s potential for mystic, untainted beauty, and she develops a close friendship with Lord Cushing, despite him being nothing but a mere whisper of darkness that pleads for her to never seek him out.

    However, whatever enchantment the gardens and Lord Cushing’s voice bring her shatters as she begins to receive nightly visitations from a crooked-jawed phantom and butterflies who’s wings whisper of a bloody past and the truth behind the faceless lord's gentlemanly masquerade.

    Summary

    While the Land of Fairy Tales is a wondrous place, it is most often an entirely predictable one. This story is no different...at least not at first. Because our seven young heroes will definitely have some loose ends to tie up once the witch is gone, don't you think?

    Summary

    “How do you know it wasn’t me who tried to kill you?” Chan asks. He relaxes into the stiff back of the wooden chair, bats his eyelashes up at Changbin, and tries for all the world to cool his fiery nerves.

    “You wouldn’t have missed.”

    --

    Chan is a human trapped in the realm of the fae, slowly exacting his revenge as a killer-for-hire. His next target is their king, Changbin, but will he be strong enough to follow through?

    Summary

    其实是《人工呼吸》的番外篇,看名字和tag应该知道是谁的故事了,因为这位的故事大概率正文中不会详细说,所以就有了这个东西。

    所以这个会很杂,多数是童话小故事(但是含有大量隐喻意识流),想到哪里写到哪里

    Summary

    They always say that there is beauty in the unforgiving winters of Siberia—Historia doesn’t know how true that is until she is abandoned out there, and meets a goddess with a spirit so warm she doesn’t understand how all this ice could be made from her.

    Summary

    In a world where everyone has a weidr companion, Leo found himself pulled into a rather unusual case. As his mentor Helga van Amstel would put it, cases come or are assigned to you but he hadn't even finished his training when she summoned him and gestured for him to look at what laid on her table. There were four photographs, neatly labelled with crime scene numbers, a barrel, a severed horse's head and a bloodied ivy crown. The last one was what caught his attention. It was a blurry picture, no one can really capture a weidr on camera, but he knew enough to know that it was a Felis margarita, a desert sand cat.

    "Interesting you picked that photo first," Helga said, and her Gero chirped his agreement. "You see, the witness's weidr wants to speak to yours." She raised an eyebrow, at him and then at his Rochus, "It's not everyday that you get a case that chooses you."

    Summary

    Appropriate tags will be added with new chapters to avoid this popping up in searches before those kind of tags are even needed.

    Once upon a time there lived a witch—yet unlike how most stories about witches go, this is not a story about a horrendous and hideous monster that lays curses upon the land; but a story of a young Galra prince attempting to free himself and his life from the witch’s grasp and a story about a young mortal boy desperate to help those most important to him. With a fated meeting in the castle courtyard, they are faced with an entwined destiny with the other that neither expected, but both had needed.

    Summary

    The old castle looks like something out of a fairy tale, with ivy and wisteria climbing freely over the ancient stone walls. It would be a nice place to lay low after a mission gone wrong if only Zemo talked to him, or even just looked his way.

    But Zemo doesn’t. He can’t. And Bucky sees the baron wasting away all too clearly in the prison of his own head. If he was merciful, he would grant Zemo his wish. Let him go.

    But Bucky is a soldier, and soldiers fight.

    Summary

    After accidentally running afoul of a witch in Antigua, Tom finds himself afflicted with a terrible curse, the first step toward breaking which is to find himself a wife; the last person he has in mind as a potential bride is his indigent, creepmouse cousin, Fanny Price, but when he realises his family is trying to pressure her into marrying Henry Crawford (and she apparently doesn't want to), he sees an opportunity for a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    If she marries him instead, and breaks his curse, he'll protect her from unwanted advances elsewhere and provide for her financially for the rest of her life.

    Fanny accepts his offer, despite several vehement objections, truly that desperate to be safe from Mr. Crawford and to help her afflicted cousin, and insanity ensues...

    Also, some stuff happens with Charles and Caroline Bingley later on.

    Summary

    Annie Edison had been alone for as long as she could remember. There were people in the world who cared. But when they got too close, bad things happened to them.

    Real lawyer or not, he was ridiculous, fighting off an animated robot in a skin-tight suit. Annie couldn’t put her finger on what it was, but she had a feeling this self-proclaimed hero might be her salvation. Either that, or he’d be a colossal waste of time.

    ~*~

    Jeff Winger was no hero. His life, in a word was … complicated. And yet, he had sworn an oath to help those in need.

    A Community-inspired AU cocktail, equal parts J/A, with an experimental "comicverse" twist.
