    Summary

    This is a collection of short fics I’ve written within the Shades of Magic universe for the August Writer’s Month prompts for 2020. These pieces have all ended up circulating around several AUs -- a modern AU, a 1940s AU, a Victorian AU where Antari are spirit mediums, and some extra pieces in the same Great War AU as Amid the Ruin -- plus a few odds and ends. This collection has everything: fluff, drama, angst, romance, some darkness at the edges to keep it interesting. Since a coherent order is not a thing, I’ll be marking each chapter with whatever storyline it is plus whatever characters appear in it. So you all can pick and choose whichever strikes your fancy!

    CW: I make no guarantees about the content of these chapters. I've outlined all of them, but am essentially writing on the fly. The rating I’ve given reflects the variety of content in here, including some pretty dark stuff and/or nsfw situations. Since the content varies greatly from chapter to chapter, I will be including individual warnings at the top of each chapter, as well as updating the tags as this project goes on! Stay safe and enjoy!

    Summary

    As an immortal being, you’d never felt any need of getting involved with anyone. Even as an Omega, your suppressants were enough to protect you from Alphas around. Getting involved with Bucky happened so slowly you barely saw it coming. Maybe you could have been happy together, mate and be one of those modern couples that worked side to side and brought their pups along, but life wasn’t a dream. You lost him just like you lost everyone else in your life. You moved on and lived your life. The decade ended, and soon the century and the millennium just as well. You never expected to see him again nearly 70 years later, just as young as the last time you’d lied eyes on his face, but a completely different man from who you’d met before.

    Summary

    There was no denying Hélène Bezukhova was a beautiful woman. Even in past years, it was the only descriptor used in each newspaper that crossed Marya’s desk. Pierre Bezukhov marries beautiful young bride, and later, beautiful socialite gains claim to Bezukhov fortune. Of course, Marya had heard the less complimentary comments about her as well, but those were never made quite so public. And while the photos in the paper never did seem to do her justice, their brief meeting at Pierre’s wedding made her certain that yes, that was Hélène Bezukhova sitting just outside her office, legs crossed and gloved hands folded neatly in her lap.
    (Maryalène film noir crime drama)

    Summary

    "Did it help you?" Enjolras asked, his eyes suddenly intense. Joly felt uncomfortably exposed under that stare, which seemed to see through all of his pretenses and to a truth which he didn't think he knew himself.

    "I haven't had anyone to talk to," Joly said, trying not to let it get to him.

    "I'll tell you my story if you tell me yours."

    *

    After the war ended in 1945, Joly decided to keep those years in the past and dedicated himself to his new duties at the hospital. But when a former resistance leader with nothing but the name "Apollo" to go by is placed under his care, Joly is tasked with learning about his past and those of the people depicted in a certain cynic's sketchbook.

    Summary

    Fitz has always dreamed of being a director. Biana can do makeup, supports her brother, and is a big lesbian thank you very much. Yeah, so maybe having a lead actor who was publically outed wasn't great for 1940s publicity but Fitz was going to use any available resources including his sister's co-worker's friends. This was going to be bad.

    Summary

    Park Jimin can't say he knows what love is, living above a small family-owned perfume shop in 1949. Love was presumably between a man and a woman; love was not meant to be between Jimin and the alluring figure that walks into his shop one day, who was also hand in hand with his wife.

    A tale of forbidden love, a beautiful flower which bloomed in the wrong patch of grass.

    Summary

    They said Moon and Sun can never meet and they were both destined to shine at different times but a 26 year-old man named Sungjin Park, the moon, meets a 22 year-old Liway Buencamino, the Sun, during a war.

    An encounter no one could really call a "destiny" nor "ill-fate." Just like how people were undecided if an eclipse should be called "cursed" or a "breathtaking" sight.
