    Summary

    As the son of a boarding school owner, Ray had watched a lot of alphas and omegas go through their later teenage years. At its best, it was inconvenient - at its worst, people ended up traumatized, potentially having caught on top of that. And yet, there wasn't really an alternative.

    After all, it was absurd to fall for someone you were never built to be with.
    It was even more absurd to fall for someone who was never built to be with you.

    The odds could only be stacked against these feelings; the co-dependence too woven into their beings, no matter how much disgust, self-hate and inner conflict it caused. So what else was there to do than give in to nature, giving up on the love that broke free from it in the process.

    Summary

    AU Severus Snape survived the war. Harry decided against being an Auror.

    A few years down the line, Snape married Harry in order to help counter a deadly blood curse, probably placed on him while he was still working under cover as a Death Eater. They may not get on brilliantly still, but Harry is willing to remain his spouse for as long as it takes, and also to help cement Severus's rocky reputation as a hero.

    Just as Harry has accepted that Severus will always dislike him, a new development in their relationship challenges that.

    Summary

    Mark Peterson has had enough of relationships. After a cheating ex left him with HIV on top of trust issues, he’s focused on his work--until his Nana is injured. As a freelancer, he can work from anywhere, so moving back to his hometown to care for her makes sense. Even if it means returning to the place where he was bullied for his sexuality.

    Brent Henner is lonely, depressed, and tired of being told he needs to get married if he wants to stay on the town advisory board. A childhood left watching his father fail at one marriage after another soured him on the whole idea of matrimony, but he didn’t count on his childhood best friend returning to town, twenty years after they drifted apart.

    A marriage of convenience is a neat solution to Mark’s lack of health insurance and Brent’s social issues--and rubbing a gay marriage in their childhood bullies’ faces is a nice bonus. There are just two problems: Mark’s been in love with Brent since they were children and pretending to be married to a man is making Brent question everything he thought he ever knew about his sexuality.

    Ground Rules is a completely written 50k novel and will update on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

    Summary

    When Brienne Tarth took her Colour Perception Test at age twenty, she never expected to receive a result of eighty-six percent Blue. It should have been a blessing: the higher your perception, the easier your path is in life, whether you are one of the ruling Purples, or Blue like her, or Green, Yellow, Orange, or Red. The higher your place in the Chromatic Hierarchy, the more likely you are to inherit a title, the better your marriage prospects. The further away you are from the lowest Greys, who can see barely any natural colour, or none at all.

    But even now, more than two years later, she still has no clue how she feels about that result. She has no clue how to feel about the fact that she is awkward, and ugly, and stands head and shoulders above most people, and has a high enough perception for prospective husbands to overlook all of those things.

    Prospective, Purple-hued husbands like Jaime Lannister.

    Summary

    It was a marriage of convenience. In a time when Greg Lestrade, as the second born son, was more than likely to be parcelled off in an arranged marriage with a perfect stranger, the offer of security and independence wasn’t one he could turn down. Maybe slightly lacking in romance, Mycroft’s proposal was simple and pragmatic. Engagement: short. Marriage: mutually beneficial.

    Summary

    " Guillermo met his eyes across the courtyard, and for a moment the human was grave and resolute as a warrior in battle, resigned to his fate yet defiant to its circumstances. For a moment Nandor imagined this meeting as the start of a war rather than a courtship, and for that moment he felt as if he'd found his footing again.

    But then the human had done something outrageous.

    Then the human had smiled. "

    In the end, when all was said and done, the marriage of Nandor the Relentless and Guillermo de la Cruz would be remembered as a pivotal and defining moment in the history of human and vampiric society alike.

    In the beginning, however, it was mostly just a mess.
