Works In Progress/Coming Up: (Note: Ratings, Titles, and Summaries are subject to change at the discretion of the author.) - Updated January 31st, 2015
1. Law-Abiding Citizen - Rated M for language and adult themes; He was happy being a hothead and a player, not wanting to be tied down and end up like his parents. She had a chip on her shoulder and a personal vendetta against men. They had nothing in common except for the fact that they each hid a life-changing secret, and apparently, that was enough. (Paul Lahote/OFC; Wolf-Centric.) (WIP) (X/X)
2. Against the Grain or Steady as the Beating Drum - In the late spring of 1607, the first Europeans land on the Washington Coast and encounter a small tribe of Native Americans. On one of the ships is Katherine - spunky, determined, and craving adventure in the New World... Until she meets one of the so-called 'savages.' Caught up in a war she wants no part of with a battle raging between her head and her heart, it soon becomes clear that no matter how hard you try, not every story can have a happy ending. A tale of sacrifice, tradition, and love that transcends social norms. (Jacob/OFC, AU) (WIP)
3. The Importance of Being or What Little Girls Are Made Of - Unrated; "Leah Clearwater hated imprinting with every ounce of her soul, but she still wished that it would happen to her, if only to put a stop to the pain. Be careful what you wish for." Leah had resigned herself to being alone for the rest of her life, but when a stranger comes to town she's thrown headfirst into the miraculous world of imprinting. Soon she is faced with a choice between following her head and her heart, and is forced to realize that things are not always what they seem. (Leah Clearwater/OMC.) (WIP)
4. Illusions of the Mind or The Truth About Happily Ever After - "I need you both to help me steal the body of a coma patient from the hospital." Embry finds out his new apartment isn't entirely empty. Haunted by a woman who can't remember anything about her past life, Embry goes on the adventure of a lifetime as he unravels the story of an overworked 'ghost', and learns a little about himself along the way. Eventual Imprint. Based on the movie Just Like Heaven. (Embry Call/OFC) (Coming Up/Debated)
5. Two Roads Diverged or Stories We Tell - Unrated; She had stumbled into his life as a frazzled mess, with an independent streak that was potent enough to give him gray hairs. Brady always knew that his imprint would be on the quirky side, but this was a bit ridiculous. (Brady/OFC.) (WIP)
6. What Destiny Has Planned - "It's like the memory of a lullaby someone used to sing to you, but you just can't remember the words." She goes to sleep excited to meet her cousin's new fiancé, and wakes up with scars across her face and a ring on her finger. After a freak accident, Emily bumps her head and wakes up with no memory of the past few years - which means no memory of the wolves, Sam, her 'accident,' or the imprint. (Emily Young/Sam Uley) (WIP)
7. Stumbling Towards Ecstasy or The Story of Us - Kim knew that she and Jared were meant to be together - even if he didn't know it yet. She just never thought that their relationship would start with a door to the face and a broken nose. (Kim/Jared) (Coming Up)
8. Bright Morning Star or All of the Stars - Rated T; The five times that Sam carried Emily to bed, and the one time that he didn't. (Oneshot)

10. Shatter Into Me or Hearts that Beat in Time - Sequel to Take A Chance On Me; Embry/OFC, background Seth/OFC.
11. Beautiful Disaster or That which Tastes the Sweetest - "One day, whether you are 14, 28, or 65, you will stumble upon someone who will start a fire in you that cannot die. However, the saddest, most awful truth you will ever come to find is they are not always with whom we spend our lives." - Beau Taplin. (Werewolf/OFC)
12. Delightfully Bittersweet or A Forbidden Affair - Collin was happy living his life as a single bachelor, but is hit with an astounding, horrifying revelation when he imprints... on his new step-sister. Taboo; Rated M.
1. Not A Laughing Matter - Elianna Malfoy had known that her life had been planned out from the beginning: Hogwarts, work on becoming a healer, then get married into a decent Pureblood family. That was it - no straying from the path that had been set out from the day she had been born. But when a chance encounter at the World Cup shows her that people are not always as they seem, suddenly the assigned path seems so much less desirable. (George Weasley/OFC.) Starts during GoF.
Avengers/Marvel Cinematic Universe:
1. The Paths We Carve or The Road to Hell - Unrated; Bruce Banner had good intentions; at least, that's what he had been telling himself.

Then she smiles her way into his life and shows him that the monster of his past doesn't necessarily have to be the man of his future. (Bucky Barnes/OFC.) (Oneshot.) (WIP)
5. Sweet Surrender - Unrated; (Steve Rogers/OFC) (WIP)
6. - They were so alike that people thought they were brothers, but... Steve is a sweetheart; Bucky is not. Steve is small; Bucky is not. Steve is a terrible fighter; Bucky is not. Steve wants to be drafted; Bucky does not. But Steve is not; and Bucky is. (Oneshot; Stucky friendship)
7. Burns Hot Enough to Last - Clint Barton's life was changed forever the moment a stranger knocked on his door. (Coming Soon.)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
1. Dancing in the Minefields or Russian Ricochet - Unrated; In 16 months, Grant Ward managed to make a new identity in Russia, fall in love, lose the girl, lose his mind, and nearly destroy the Russian Embassy in Warsaw.

She lived on the straight-and-narrow, never once feeling that lure of danger and adventure... And then she met Derek Hale. (Derek/OFC.) Set in the beginning of Season 4. (WIP.)
Chronicles of Narnia:
1. As the Tide Turns or The Persistence of a Pevensie - Edmund hated the idea of an arranged marriage with a burning passion, but knew that he had to do his duty for his kingdom. When the ring is stolen by a (rather pretty) bandit, he is forced to realize that the person you are is not necessarily defined by the things that you have done. During the Golden Age. Edmund Pevensie/OFC
2. Letter to No One or Writer's Block - In the bleak mid-winter, in the safe haven of the stuffy library in Finchley, Edmund meets a girl. Well, sort of. - Edmund Pevensie/OFC (WIP; Two-shot.)
3. Discordant Harmony (Concordia Discors) - He was tired of the duties that came with being king; she was sick of the rules and regulations that would force her to marry someone she didn't love.

4. Fire-Flowers in the Sun or What Grace Has Given - She was ruthless and dangerous, not hesitating in doing anything that she had to do to protect her younger brother, even if that meant murdering one of the most beloved people in all of Narnia: the High King.

(Peter Pevensie/OFC.)
1. Child's Play - Percival didn't know what it was about himself that was so enticing to small children, but didn't question it.

(Percival/OFC) (WIP) (?/3)
2. See No Evil or The Persistence of Being - Rated T; Gwaine's smooth-talking words and handsome face have never failed him, but he is pushed into a rude awakening after a run-in with the blind daughter of the town stable-master. Maybe a pretty face isn't the most important thing in the world after all. (Gwaine/OFC.) (Coming Up) (?/3)
1. Thesis Statement or Feet That Stray - Spencer Reid is sad; a newly-widowed kindergarden teacher that just moved into his apartment building is equally sad, and Spencer finds out that even with all of his endless knowledge, there are still things that he needs to learn.
