s/maybe i ain't used to maybes

"Disney Totally Made This Shit Look Easier", Glee, Quinn-centric

Title: Disney Totally Made This Shit Look Easier
Fandom: Glee
Characters: Quinn; everyone
Challenge/Prompt: au_bingo - Royalty
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4000
Genre: Gen
Timeline Note: Set post Home, goes AU after that point.
Summary: In which Quinn receives some unexpected news and a country to govern, Kurt doesn’t receive any kind of ceremonial hat, and being a monarch turns out to be nothing like Hamlet.
Author’s Notes: Something light and cracky to get my head back into writing for the Glee fandom, since I’ve been distracted lately. I was really struggling to work out what the fuck to do with the royalty prompt for my bingo and then for no reason my brain went “OMFG The Princess Diaries”. This isn’t religiously like either the books or the movies, though I have stolen Meg Cabot’s made up country, because I figure if there’s already one perfectly serviceable imaginary European country out there, why take the time to invent a new one. So: Genovia. Oh, and this story? Is really, really silly (and possibly awful). It’s why I’m not x-posting it. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

"Don't Send The Searchlights", Harry Potter, Sirius/Remus

Title: Don’t Send The Searchlights
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Sirius/Remus (others scattered/implied)
Challenge/Prompt: au_bingo - Mundane
Rating: PG-13 (liberal use of bad language)
Word Count: 4120
Genre: Slash
Copyright: Title is a Gold Motel song.
Summary: In which Sirius is almost definitely some degree of mentally disturbed, Tonks really needs to leave the hair dye alone, and Lily and James actually did die in a car crash.
Author’s Notes: I know I don’t write for this fandom too often, but when I was thinking about what I wanted for my mundane prompt – i.e the one where you take a supernatural fandom and then remove all the things that make it exciting – the idea for this story popped into my head. I really wish it hadn’t, because this story makes me actively unhappy and gets way too close to home in places, but whatever. Hopefully it’s vaguely in character despite the fact I hardly ever delve into HP land. And seriously, this is not a happy or particularly hopeful story, so if you’re having a bad day, don’t read this.
