    Summary

    Tears pooled in Yuuri’s eyes as he rested his forehead on his tightly clasped hands. It was the dead of night, and he was bone tired from rehearsals and performances, but still he couldn’t sleep. His body began to shake and his fingers tightened their grip as he tried to control the sobs that came in quiet gasps. He bit his lower lip to stem the flow of tears, silently praying that no one else could hear him in that tiny apartment.

    Yuuri is desperate to finish his final year in Juilliard, and is offered an unconventional solution to all his problems.

    Excellent story...if you're put off by the sugar daddy aspect, don't let it scare you off, it honestly doesn't come much into play overall, and gets put aside for the bigger story, ie., their growing relationship. Satisfying read!

    Summary

    The soldier standing in front her is not familiar. He’s thin and tall and haggard looking but Jyn thinks he can’t be too much older than her despite the weariness of his features. He’s as drenched as she is, if not more, his wet hair still dripping into his eyes. Jyn stares up at him, her clenched jaw aches. She can’t find her voice. The soldier clears his throat, raises a hand. There’s something clenched in it. He offers it to her. “In case you’re cold.” He says. His voice is gentle but the set of his mouth gives him away, the shadow of awkwardness that lingers under each carefully enunciated word. Jyn doesn’t help him, doesn’t reach for the jacket in his hand. She just keeps staring.

    [Or: After years held hostage by the Empire, Jyn is rescued from Eadu during a rebel attack.]

    Summary

    There is no line that Omega Helen won't cross to protect her students. So when one is forced to drop out to work for the Russian Mafia, she is ready to go head-to-head with its leader, Alpha Viggo Tarasov, to save him. She soon finds herself in a new world of trouble when Mafia contractor, Alpha John Wick, steps in to place her under his protection.

    ...
    Winston glares at him, “I heard that you, while in the middle of Tarasov’s compound, put a Claim on an Omega that you had never met before. You did so formally, in front of witnesses.”

    “I did.”

    “A Claim, Jonathan!” Winston leans forward, “You only have one, you know. One person to put under your protection and you used yours on a stranger!”

    “Yes.”

    Winston breathes heavily and John realizes it’s the first time he has ever seen the Manager truly at a loss for words. The older man pinches the bridge of his nose.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Good story, the first I've read in this fandom so I'm not sure if the author's version of Helen is unique or not but I did find her to be different than I expected and interesting. There are a fair degree of typos and misused apostrophies and more smirks than I normally prefer but I enjoyed the story enough to stick with it.
