Giving Erin and Holtz the "childhood friends turned slow burn teen romance" AU treatment, because it's my favorite trope ever. Emphasis on the teen/high school era, with a side of sleepovers, ghosts, and mixtapes.

Erin/Holtz. Little bit of canon, post-movie angst. Holtzmann returns to the Ghostbusters team after a brief absence, but Erin struggles to forgive her after the way they left things. Oneshot.

so devoid of color (she don't know what it means) reviews
Oneshot. Soulmate AU where people only begin to see colors when/if they meet their soulmate. The world turns to color the night Piper Chapman walks into a bar looking for a job and meets Alex Vause, instead. With most people in her life, however, she pretends to still see in black and white. Follows canon through season one.

my wings are made of plastic reviews
What if Diane Vause hadn't died the day Piper left, but instead a month or two later? What if that anger and abandonment wasn't wrapped up in the breakup? What if they still hadn't spoken since Paris, and Alex is alone when she gets the news...and her first instinct is to call her mom to talk about it, but her second is to call Piper. Canon divergence, alternate timeline. Two shot.

Where the Wild Things Are reviews
Oneshots set in the world of "Monster", aka Max 'verse (Piper/Alex kid fic). Often prompts, but not always. All are standalone (though reading the establishing fic is obviously helpful), not in any order. Latest: An oblivious thirteen year old Max discovers the music of Death Maiden.

like ice reviews
Vauseman Titanic AU. In which Piper Chapman is a bored but conditioned high society girl, traveling first class with her obscenely wealthy parents and fiancé, Larry Bloom; Alex Vause is a ruffian semi-homeless artist who's never once dressed or acted like a "lady", coming aboard with a steerage ticket won with a lucky hand of poker.

nothing left to burn reviews
Two-shot. Post-season three. Piper has every reason to assume Alex is dead after the greenhouse aftermath. She ends up wishing they'd never met, because none of this would have happened. Nothing would hurt so much. A series of irreverent guardian angels show her what life would be like if she and Alex never met.

Hogwarts AU. Two-shot. Alex Vause is a half-blood Slytherin, raised by her muggle mother with a Death Eater dad she never even met. She's ousted by her own house because of her blood status, and loathed by the rest of the school for a legacy she wasn't even aware of. Piper Chapman is a pureblood, legacy Ravenclaw, as smart and impressive as she's expected to be.

past and present tense reviews
"If something happens to you, it's my fault. You could have been far away from him, but I..." Piper's voice cracks with a soft but audible whimper, and Alex gently puts a finger to her lips. Whispering again, Piper finishes thickly, "I wish I'd just let you leave." Late (or post?) season three.

take a sad song and make it better reviews
Sort of "Young Blood", vignette style, from Diane's perspective. But the first half ended up just being Diane and Alex backstory that is just as applicable to canon as to my 'verse. So...if you're not into the YB stuff but just want some early Diane and Alex, first chapter's still completely applicable. For the second chapter, you only have to have read "YB" not all the sequels.

Brief, fluffy piece to ease the transition between lengthy angst fics. This is a complete whim, and probably the only time I'll ever write this trope/genre for these two. I don't even want to say anything else. Canon compliant with the end of season two, just fast forward a few years.

The dog strains against the leash, the howl only amplifying, and maybe it's the sleep deprivation, but something about the animal in that moment reminds of her of Will, trapped and helpless and confused. It makes her feel so damn useless. Something inside Alana cracks open, and suddenly there are tears rolling down her cheeks and she's standing on her porch pleading with a dog.

For a second his chest aches, and he thinks, Not now. Not like this. But then his eyes fall on the cut on her cheek, and he remembers that this is the only way it can be, that he has rendered all other options impossible. Post 1x11
