Title: The Bad Bridesmaid
Author: out_there
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Pairing/Characters: Mycroft Holmes/Gregory Lestrade
Length: 11,611
Notes: Written for 2017 Unconventional Courtship challenge. Thanks to [personal profile] celli and [personal profile] misbegotten for cheerleading with great enthusiasm. Thanks to [personal profile] tehomet for betaing and Britpicking.

Summary adjusted from Portia Macintosh's "Bad Bridesmaid".


Summary: "My wedding is ruined and my marriage is going to fail. And it’s all your fault!"

As a Geneva-based political consultant, Mycroft Holmes has it all: influence, money, success, a sleek and toned body and a string of sexy lovers. He's almost forgotten his previous self: Mikey Holmes, a plain and pudgy boy, later an awkward and clumsy teenager. Until a wedding invitation arrives requesting (demanding!) his presence as chief bridesmaid at his younger brother Sherlock's upcoming nuptials.

Mycroft's barely been back in England before he's accidentally injured the groom and been caught in a compromising position with his future brother-in-law's best man!

With the wedding of the year about to be doomed, Mycroft has no time to waste – especially with sexy detective and best man Greg Lestrade on hand to help...

Title: The Scheme You Propose
Author: Mara
Fandom: Kamen Rider Ex-Aid
Pairing/Characters: Kujo Kiriya/Hojou Emu
Rating: Adult
Length: 11,800 words
Summary: How could he turn down a banana in distress?

Successful rebel Kiriya Kujo came to make peace with his past and his family. But he'd never thought that to appear "respectable," he'd become the pretend fiancé of a banana-wearing storeowner! Yet how could he refuse spunky Emu Hojou, the man under the costume, when he kissed him so sweetly— and so thoroughly—in the spaghetti aisle of the supermarket?

His gaze implored him to play the role of lover to show up his ex-fiancé. But remembering the kisses they shared were supposed to be pretend became more difficult, when all Kiriya wanted to do was to make love to the appealing Emu! Was the proposal turning into something…real?

Notes: The summary above (obviously with different character names and other minor changes) comes from the book "The Virgin's Proposal" by Shirley Jump. Thanks to Aryn for the betaread!

Pairing/Characters: Heather ("The Pilot")/Bill Potts, River Song
Rating: General Audiences
Length: 3338
Summary:

THE BEST WOMAN...IN EVERY WAY

Watching her potential girlfriend constantly ask about leaving her surroundings is Bill Potts’ worst nightmare...until she and the would-be girlfriend are kidnapped by River Song. River knows a sentient creature wants Heather Carew out of the picture. Until River can get them all to safety, all that stands between Heather and fusion is canteen assistant Bill.

Moments away from unintentionally fusing with a sentient creature, Heather's life is turned upside down. Now the woman she's always considered her new friend has transformed into some kind of sexy special agent. Bill is prepared to do anything to stop the creature and secure Heather’s safety. But who's keeping Heather’s heart safe from Bill?

(Summary modified from Fugitive Bride by Paula Graves.)

Notes: Longer notes on AO3, but in short, this is a canon divergence AU set during "The Pilot."

Rating: Teen
Length: 16,179
Summary: John Silver, the fraudulent Earl of Poole, awakes to find a beauty berating him - but he cannot recall the last three months of his life, nor having a wife.

Dear amoxicillin:

It isn't that I don't appreciate killing the sinus infection. I do.

What I don't appreciate is you mixing badly with my brain and my other medications. I have been out of my godsdamned tree for 12 bloody days, and am only JUST able to go, "...oh hell,that's the meds."

Do not appreciate .

The 2 HP vids above that premiered at VVC were also part of a larger vid series I created over the last year that was set to the soundtrack of Disney's Fantasia.
