Le Fiston [Beauty & the Beast 2017]

Title: Le Fiston
Fandom: Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Pairing: LeFou/Gaston, Belle/Adam
Rating: NC-17/Explicit
Warnings: This one carries a fluff warning. I rarely write anything this fluffy.
Word count: 27170
Summary: Choose your favorite Gaston redemption fic, and this one comes after it. I wanted to imagine a world in which Gaston and LeFou are living together happily in a village full of people that accept them. However, no story can work without conflict. Being accepted by the village has made self-acceptance easy for Gaston. When Gaston's son tracks him down, though, Gaston's instincts tell him to hide his relationship with LeFou. Or, what happens then reality leaks into Gaston's fantasy happy ending.
Notes: There's something sweet, and almost kind about Gaston. I hate that canon essentially throws him off a building and no one cares because he's obviously the Bad Guy(™) and apparently only the rich dude is allowed to have redemption. It hurts my heart that anyone would consider another human being trash like this. Troubled? Violent? Angry? Yes yes yes. But still worth saving. So since this is all a fantasy, let's do it!

Dark Web [Harry Potter]

Title: Dark Web
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Remus Lupin/Sirius Black
Rating: NC-17/Explicit
Warnings: Sexual slavery, on-screen rape
Word count: 6687
Summary: When Sirius hears rumors about wolf-men hybrids running a porn site, he is eager to check it out. He did not expect to be drawn into a sexual slavery bust. And he definitely did not plan to fall in love.
Notes: Thank you to brighty18 for beta reading this and to the mods of rs_games for running RS games and for being lenient with me more than once. Written for rs_games for the prompt: #43 - "When I was fifteen, all I wanted was to go off to some other world, a place beyond anybody’s reach. A place beyond the flow of time.”

- But there’s no place like that in this world.

- Exactly. Which is why I’m living here, in this world where things are continually damaged, where the heart is fickle, where time flows past without a break."

- Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Melisandre is Tested [Game of Thrones]

Title: Melisandre is Tested
Fandom: Game of Thrones (TV universe)
Character: Melisandre
Summary: Melisandre, just exiled, realizes who Jon Snow is, and knows now how she must serve him.
Rating: PG
Word count: 1410
AN: I can't promise that there won't be more of this. I'm curious about Melisandre's adventures in the south now that her loyalty is unshakable. Also a little bit of my head-canon leaked into here. I don't think it's likely that Melisandre, who has been a Red Priestess for a long time, never found a candidate for Azor Ahai before Stannis.

Assumptions and Expectations [Harry Potter]

Title: Assumptions and Expectations
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Remus Lupin/Sirius Black
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 2534
Summary: Sirius and Remus decide over Christmas to try out something more than friendship.
Notes: Written for leontinabowie as part of rs_small_gifts. I know many readers, like Remus, may not know a lot about asexuality so unfortunately this turned out a bit like a primer. I am not asexual so this is based on second-hand research and I would appreciate any corrections. Thank you to leontinabowie for the prompt, and I think there may be more here to explore! Thank you to mindabbles for a very speedy beta-reading.
