    Summary

    It's Kuvira and the Beifongs...in the Victorian Era.

    Kuvira isn't having the best day. She's been trudging through mud up to the Beifong mansion, soaked to the skin, and is stuck getting "lessons in propriety" from a certain Suyin Beifong. Oh well. It's better than what she's used to, at least.
    Opal, for one, is tired of being left behind. Her mother dotes on her like a little girl and the rest of her family is off doing goodness knows what. She's been looking for a way to escape and live how she wants.
    When Kuvira arrives just in time for Opal's trip to visit her grandmother, Toph Beifong, Opal suggests that she accompany her...which results in hilarity as the two of them realize exactly what Toph's plans for the vacation are.

    If you like busting corset myths, Toph being a chaotic old lady, a healthy dose of a Kuvira and Opal friendship, and the Beifong siblings being generally awesome in all the strangest ways, by all means...enter this odd little world.

    Summary

    “Always fucking silks with you. Finery for the pageantry of it. Never had an issue with linen.”

    “Linen has its applications, certainly, but I must demand pageantry in this instance. Edward, surely, deserves a little bit of pageantry too, don’t you think? Wouldn’t it be lovely to be wrapped in something beautiful?” Izzy freezes with a sharp intake of breath. Stede leans in, indecently close given the present company, even with her back turned. “To be something lovely, wrapped in something beautiful?”

    “I don’t need you to do this.” He’s being handled. Coddled. “I don't need to be–”

    “Treasured?”

    ---

    Izzy gets treated gently, much to his annoyance.

    Summary

    Queen Anne and King François remain in Italy. Catherine de’ Medici, Dauphine of France, and her accomplices do something very bad, with unexpected results. Shadows of doom are closing in around Catherine as Dauphin Henri was given the diary of Diane de Poitiers.

    Exiled from England, Anne Boleyn enters into a political marriage to King François when France is ravaged by the Habsburg invaders. The deadly intrigues of the Tudor, Valois, and Habsburg families and courts are entangled with drama, passion, and wars.   

    This story is a long Tudor-Valois-Habsburg-Medici epic, written with authentic historical detail, plausibly blending facts with fiction. It is a long series of many historical novels about Henry VIII's queens and the Edwardian era while keeping Anne Boleyn alive.

    Summary

    Set in 1920s America, a vampire from a cult-like coven is sent to look after her incompetent Sire. Through a series of events set in motion far before she arrived, she forms a complicated sort of relationship with her Sire's former favorite, a capable and headstrong thrall (humans in service to vampires). A story of vampires, mobsters, ghosts, witches, cults, and mysteries. Oh, and *lots* of kink, poly, and queer relationships. Adding tags as they appear in the story, so keep an eye out for new ones!

    Summary

    They are like an apricity – the warmth of the sun in winter, – like something that too incompatible to be together.

    They are almost from different worlds.

    They were not destined to meet.

    However, they did, and now are left to deal with the consequences. Will they be able to stay together, and is it even possible to build happiness, while balancing on the edge of the abyss and breaking all the forbiddances?

    Yoongi and Hoseok say ‘yes’, but what will society say?

    Summary

    When Monarch Akiyama succeeds the throne after the disappearance of their parents, the entire empire falls into chaos as every noble family- save for the Asahinas, turn up dead in their own homes.

    Now, a decade after the near-collapse of the empire, Mafuyu Asahina, the only remaining noble of the Akiyama Empire's original noble families, serves as the right hand of the Monarch, overseeing a flourishing empire. But inside the castle walls is a dim, dreary atmosphere as Mafuyu visits every day with the hope of bringing Mizuki out to the world, both to help Mizuki realize that not everything they've done is right, and that they aren't as utterly alone as they'd like to believe.

    How does Mafuyu do this?

    By hosting a competition of the arts in the Empire's castle, where they meet two artists from vastly different walks of life. A musician, the daughter of a composer whose memory was lost in a tragic accident, and a painter whose family gambled their fortunes away.

    But in spite of their hardships, they must carry on. They must overcome their grief.

    Summary

    Harry Potter is an orphan. Everyone knows this, him most of all. Taken in by the agoraphobic and ancient Dowager Viscountess Cassiopeia Black, Harry's musical aptitude was evident even from a young age. He has trained all his life to perform in front of a noble audience and step upon the shoulders of giants. To be known for his accomplishment and skill. To be great. And he will do anything to achieve that goal.

    Draco Malfoy is an orphan. He hasn't been as such for very long, however. Known as the Instrumenteur, Draco runs a modest shoppe in lower Diagon Alley where he creates and repairs musical instruments. The Viscountess Cassiopeia Black stole everything from him the night of his parents' fatal accident. When Harry Potter, the orphan that wretched woman took in even as she cast out her own blood, proposes the most ludicrous of schemes that might just get Draco his stolen title and life back, who is he to decline?

    In a time of galas, secrets, corsets, and symphonies, can love prevail over all else?
