    Summary

    Two young prideful men find each other in the most unbecoming moments of their lives. An elderly woman’s stubbornness, devastating solitude and shared predilections render them inseparable, even though there was no hope for that at the first, shared glance.

    We all know how their tragic story ends; have you ever wondered, though, how it had commenced?

    Summary

    Limping home from the Briar Patch following Ru'afo's brazen attack on their ship, the crew of the Enterprise are given one last mission to fulfill: convince the Dominion-aligned Son'a stationed on Devos II that they should return home to Ba'ku. The only problem is that there aren't any Son'a to be found on Devos II; the ketracel-white facility they had been running for the Founders has been destroyed, and there are no survivors.

    Not only that but — not a week after his last repair visit in Engineering — Data has been struck down by a damaging electromagnetic pulse while his Away team investigates the empty facility...and he's most definitely not himself when he reawakens...

    On nearby Deep Space Nine, the crew lays over to get to the bottom of the mysteries that have unfolded within sight of the Dominion War front. They don't know it but they've begun a race against time: the Dominion are closing in on the other side of the Cardassian border, a Vorta commander and her Jem'Hadar crew are lying in wait for them, and the machinations of an old foe have set into motion a dastardly plot to destroy Data's newfound happiness.

    Summary

    James Potter has just served ten years for a murder he may or may not have committed. On the day of his release, he is greeted by the detective who put him in prison. Detective Moody is retiring, and he wants to know what really happened a decade before.
    As a young actor at an elite conservatory, James noticed that his talented classmates seem to play the same characters onstage and off - villain, hero, temptress - though he was always a supporting role. But when the teachers change the casting, a good-natured rivalry turns ugly, and the plays spill dangerously over into real life.

    When tragedy strikes, one of the seven friends is found dead. The rest face their greatest acting challenge yet; convincing the police, and themselves, that they are blameless...

    AKA I take the entirety of If We Were Villains by the AMAZING M.L. Rio and rearrange it to make it MaraudersTM and JegulusTM. Go read that splendid, life-changing book if you haven't yet, and enjoy my retelling !!

    !! I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS, OR PLOT POINTS !!

    Some bits will be basically copied and pasted from the book.

    Summary

    Carson can’t handle this anymore. She just fucking can’t. If she hears another stupid joke, another weirdly sexual comment, or hear the word doctor come out of that man’s mouth one more time she might implode. Burst apart into tiny miniscule pieces of herself and dispense quietly, painfully, through the air as adams or atoms or whatever the fuck they’re called.

    These are my shorts for AUgust 2022. Each chapter title will include the daily prompt, unless I use a Joker to switch out the prompt for something else (I’ll be sure to note it in the fic). The opening note will include a brief summary, and say whether the short is a (First) Chapter of a work that could exist, or a Standalone story.

    Summary

    “What’s in a name?" Jake slurs. Jeremy’s still in too much shock to move, completely overcome with Jake’s grip on his arms and the bouquet that somehow ended up in his hand. "That which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet.”

    “What- is that fucking Shakespeare?”

    “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight- for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”

    The confusion passes enough for Jeremy to finally register the words Jake is saying. “Why the fuck are you quoting Romeo and Juliet at me?”

    Summary

    “Yeah,” breathes Ed. He places his palm on Stede’s chest, fingers spread like he’s trying to touch as much of him at once as he can. “That’s great.”

    And that’s when Stede dares to open one of his eyes, just a little.

    “Is it?” he ventures. “You’re mistaken.”

    “Nah, I’ve taken off a lot of shirts in my life. You’re sexy as hell. Who told you that you weren’t?”

    Summary

    “There’s a new English teacher.” Lucius was standing in front of the doors to the classroom when Edward returned from the staff room for third period. 

    “Is that right? Haven’t seen him.” He sighed, moving past him into the classroom. “Is he nice?”

    “He’s a bit mental. But like, in a cool way. I guess.” 

    Ed wasn’t really listening, rummaging through drawers looking for the A-Level scripts. “Uh huh.”

    “Jamie Ritchie called Shakespeare a slur and he took him outside and screamed at him for 12 minutes.” 

    He paused and turned around. “Did he now?” 

    --

    Ed teaches Drama at a private school for boys and does nothing else but smoke weed and rot with his best (and only) friend, Izzy. That is until a newly divorced English teacher with a passion for Shakespeare and fighting homophobia sweeps into his life.
