Title: Carried Off Without Complaints
Author: [personal profile] samuraiter
Fandom: Fire Emblem (13) – Awakening
Pairing / Characters: Sumia / Chrom
Rating: T
Length: 1,410
Summary: Sumia writes a self-insert story involving Chrom as a bandit.
Notes: From Prompt # 269Taken by the Highwayman by Amelia Casey :

"Stand and deliver!" The call of the highwayman made the pulse of Lady Sumia race, but not from fear. Tales of the 'knights of the road' had always piqued her curiosity, but Chrom aroused a new feeling: desire. With an arranged marriage looming, Sumia never expected to have control over who would be the first to bed her ... until Chrom took her to his forest hideaway, where they could give free rein to their wild passion.

Pairing: Yunho/Changmin
Rating: R
Length: ~7400 words. This is so far from being finished it’s not even funny; these are the first two chapters.
Summary: Rome, 65 AD. Torn between the emperor’s favour and the threat of assassination, Changmin is desperate to escape the cruel, dangerous world of the imperial city. But the greatest challenge the young poet faces is his forbidden desire for the one man who can save him—his fearless bodyguard slave.

A proud horseman brought to Rome in chains, Yunho’s hunger for freedom is almost as strong as his hunger for his beautiful dominus. Yunho’s fierce loyalty to Changmin soon leads him into the Circus Maximus, where he is prepared to sacrifice his life to defend Changmin’s honour...

Rating: PG
Length: 4695 words
Summary: Putting the personal in PA!

The unwanted advances of gold-digging socialites are an occupational hazard for racing legend turned tycoon Marina Kazama. So she extends her PA’s job description to cover evening events. Konomi Amagai has risen to her boss’s every challenge…

But being seen on her arm means spotlights, scrutiny, figure-flaunting cocktail dresses—and leaving the safety of her staid grey suits! Famous for her cool, Marina’s anything but when she sees her formerly frumpy PA dressed to kill! Konomi knows this playgirl well—she’ll arm her heart with the same steel used on the Kazama motorbike!

Notes: This was written for the 2016 Unconventional Courtship challenge. My fic is based on the book summary for Unnoticed and Untouched by Lynn Raye Harris, which is the summary above, except the tycoon is Lorenzo D’Angeli and his PA is Faith Black.

Thanks to Revieloutionne for the pairing suggestion! I'm thrilled to finally have the opportunity to write this adorable pair.

Pairing/Characters: Raven, Alex Summers
Rating: pg
Length: 1500

Summary:
Gentleman Beneath The Veil
SECRETS AT THE ALTAR…

When Dr. Henry McCoy lifts his new bride's veil he can't believe his eyes—this dark-haired dab of a boy isn't the blonde beauty he's been courting! Stunned, McCoy resolves to seek an annulment at the earliest opportunity, but to do so he must first make sure Alex Summers' virtue stays intact….

Blackmailed into marrying Dr. McCoy by his scheming friend, Alex is just as keen to keep his distance from his unsettling husband. But despite their good intentions the marital bed beckons — and a stolen kiss could prove to be their undoing!

Original: Lady Beneath The Veil by Sarah Mallory (Harlequin)

Notes: This is the blackmailing part of the story, though it turned out more like a few threats and an odd argument than true blackmail. Completely (pseudo-historical) AU, based on idea that Raven could've form her own team to help mutants.

Summary:

Carnell is exactly where he wants to be in life. He is known as the Carnal Comte, the resident sexpert for Suprême magazine, and his outrageous suggestions for flavouring sex have propelled him to semi-stardom. But when the magazine pairs him up with sexy Deva, aka The Duke of Desire, he knows where he’ll end up – in Deva’s bed. And he plans to enjoy it…

Deva isn’t happy to learn that he’s been set up to give sex advice to thousands of men. There’s only one man he wants, and he’d like to personally demonstrate just how much he knows. Still, this temporary partnership – in and out of bed – might be exactly what he needs to get Carnell out of his system for good. But it doesn’t look like there’s anything temporary about it…

It's time for the fest we've ALL been waiting for! YES -

Welcome to 'Unconventional Courtship 2016'!



'Unconventional Courtship' is a panfandom fic fest where you write and post a 1000w+ fic based on a M&B/Harlequin plot. Fics will be posted to this community, staggered through June 2016 (from the 1st to the 30th).

How to play:

It's as simple as:

1. Sign up! All you need to do is comment on this post with the day you want to post your fic. You can tell me which summary/pairing you're going with, but you don't have to. You can also ask me to assign you a summary, if you want. (You don't need a Dreamwidth to play - just comment with OpenID, although you will need to ask me to post your fic on the com. If you are on DW, please follow the community!)

2. Choose a M&B/Harlequin summary (or two etc) - we have hundreds of suggestions here, but there are literally thousands. Our prompt generator is even biggerer and betterer than last year! (thank you [personal profile] john_amend_all) You can write more than one fic, if you want. You can also combine prompts, if you like.

3. Replace the names (and pronouns if necessary) with the names (and pronouns) of the pairing of your choice. Any any all fandoms and pairings are welcome in this fest.

You can also replace place names and jobs as long as you keep to the spirit of the prompt. So, if you want to write Kirk/Spock, but you don't want to write a modern day AU, you could replace 'the Sahara desert' with 'a desert planet' and Kirk wouldn't need to be the boss at a law firm, he could be the boss... in the sense that he's the captain.

4. Write a fic based on your altered summary. You can take the prompt seriously or use it as an improbable basis for lols.

4.5. Pimp the fest far and wide. I'm hardly going to do this at all, so it's up to you - the players! I've re-uploaded the make-your-own banners and of course you can use any that I've already made. But please do pimp where ever you think would be appropriate.

5. Post the fic to this community on your assigned day. Use the header provided.

You can also post to our AO3 collection, but please post to the com whatever you do, and please post to the com first.

You can see some examples of Unconventional Courtship fic by looking through the collection, or earlier in the com.

6. Profit! Fics for all! I'll post a masterlist once all the entries are in. Crossposting is encouraged.

Any questions? Leave a comment or PM me or email me at heroic.tendencies@gmail.com


Rules:

1. All fics must be over 1,000 words long.

2. You must use a modified Mills & Boon and/or Harlequin summary.

3. You don't have to use a beta, but it is strongly advised.

4. Please use the following header (or similar - the AO3 share function is fine) when you post to the community:



5. Please post on your assigned day. If you can't for whatever reason, please let me know either by PM or email heroic.tendencies@gmail.com

6. You can use this fic for another challenge i.e. [community profile] trope_bingo

7. You can sign up for any day you like, but if it is possible for you to sign up for a day that nobody else is interested in then that'd be best of all.

Days for posting )

If you have questions, feel free to ask! And/or consult the FAQs from last year, which are still mostly accurate.
