    'The house looks exactly the same.
    Maybe a little more worn and the garden overgrown, but the years since she was last here seem to have frozen the house in time, and Bella feels sick to her stomach just at the sight of it.
    On the flight, she managed to convince herself she was ready for this, but she’s second-guessing herself now. She’s not ready. She doesn’t want to walk into that house and - '

    Summary

    Finally fed up with the useless advice of healers, Hermione is sure she'll never be able to remove the scar left on her arm by Bellatrix's knife. In a last act of desperation, she seeks out Narcissa Malfoy, now a veritable recluse after the war, in the hopes that she might know something… anything that could help. However, when Hermione finds herself reading Bellatrix’s journals, working for Draco, and growing closer to the mysterious lady of the house, she learns that nothing in Malfoy Manor is as simple as it appears.

    Summary

    The woman stops her pacing, setting her pale and unevenly-coloured eyes on Kara, and in that moment Kara understands - for the very first time - how Helen of Troy’s face could have been beautiful enough to start a war.

    “Enough. I’m tired of being passed from one person to the next. Tell me,” the woman says fiercely after Kara has been quiet for too long. “Who are you?”

    “I’m, um,” Kara says, wiggling her feet until they’re buried in the sand up to the ankle. “I’m Kara.”

    The woman stares at Kara, incredulous and silent. It stretches out between them, those lingering questions and Kara’s unwillingness to answer them, until finally her shoulders sink and she deflates with a small, disbelieving laugh. “Right. Well, I’m Lena,” she says, finally seeming to realize her dress is torn and pulling it tighter, "and if you don’t mean me harm, then I suppose you just saved me.”

    OR

    Kara’s pod crashes in 6th century Greece, her cousin nowhere to be found, and she grows up eager to emulate the heroes whose myths comforted her in the wake of Krypton’s destruction. But when she accidentally reveals her powers and the world views her as a demigod, Kara begins to understand just how dangerous that can be.

    Summary

    “It’s a lot easier for me to keep my grip on you when I can actually feel your body.”

    The phrase feel your body said in Kara’s voice rattles around in Lena’s head like a pinball machine, but she manages to shrug her sweater off and throw it somewhere behind them before she can second-guess herself. Kara is looking comfortable in a loose white t-shirt, and when she takes Lena by the waist and puts Lena’s hand on her shoulder the texture of it is light and soft.

    “Let’s start from square one,” Kara says, so kindly that her next words take a few seconds to register in Lena’s brain. She tightens her grip on Lena’s waist, and says with full confidence:

    “Dancing is a lot like sex.”

    OR

    Against her better judgement, Lena agrees to compete on Dancing with the Stars. When her chemistry with Kara gets misconstrued by the press, there’s obviously only one solution.

    AKA, a Dancing with the Stars/Fake Dating AU.

    Summary

    She could only watch on, horrorstruck, as this girl folded in on herself. With every twitch, she heard bones creaking and snapping, coming undone and re-knitting themselves into something else. Something monstrous. Her eyes bulged from their sockets, her ears grew and stretched and bled, and Rosalie almost wretched when her teeth began to fall from her mouth, replaced by incisors sharp as a blade.

    The night went deathly still - every living thing in the forest frozen in terror - before Bella looked up at her with fury and fear, her yellow eyes glowing luminescent in the moonlight.

    "Run," she begged, and then began to scream.

    Formerly "Moonkissed".
