Gestalt (Leverage)

Summary: “It won’t be forever, Bear,” Joe says as he hugs Barry goodbye. “We’ll get a new hearing, get you to come home with us.”
Barry nods, clutching his backpack to his chest, keenly aware of the impatient sniffing of the woman who will be fostering him in Joe’s stead. He wants to believe Joe, but more than that he wants Joe to believe him, believe in the man in the lightning and the fact that his dad is innocent.

Summary: It starts like this: with Enjolras's father, drunk and desperate that his only daughter marry before she becomes a spinster, accosting a wealthy-looking stranger at the market and directing his attention to her.
With a thoughtless boast, her father crying, "Look at her there in the sunlight, look at her hair, see how she turns straw into gold? Isn't she beautiful?", too loud and too bold for the crowded marketplace.
With a knock at the door, some days later, and a man in the king's livery standing at attention on the other side, reading a decree, and the sudden sense that the world has dropped out from under Enjolras's feet.

He thinks about Scott, that there are worse things that can happen when you get hit with an unexpected dose of something. When the device that had been left behind as a last little screw you by the fae they'd been dealing with blew up in his hands he could've been reduced to tomato paste on the walls.
Instead, he has a tail and little pointy striped tabby ears on the top of his head.

written by [archiveofourown.org profile] thefourthvine, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] knight_tracer
Summary: Itís an embarrassing clichÈ, I know, but there was an actual basket, made of what looked to be actual wicker, actually sitting there.

Then the small hand emerged from the basket, waved around for a minute, and smacked down again.

Unless Stiles Stilinski has his way. Far from the skinny geek he once was, he now makes his living shaking his sweet ass for fun and profit, and when he shows up at the Whittemore-Hale bachelor party, he starts a ripple effect that might shake Derek’s walls to the ground.

Here's the posting schedule. The mods will reveal the work on AO3, so all participants might want to do on that day is update the posting date on their work, so it'll show up on fandom RSS feeds. Unfortunately, AO3 won't let you list a posting date in the future, so you'll have to manually change it on the day you want it to show on the RSS.

Please be sure to have your work ready for your reveal day, with the podfic links and streaming in the body of the work. The mods will check all posts prior to their posting date and contact you with any issues we see, but please double-check your own posts as well in case we miss something. Mods will reveal on AO3 and crosspost to this comm on DW and Tumblr. Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.

Reminder #1: Party Favors are due August 26, and will be posted August 27.
Reminder #2: To those participants with extensions, please remember that your due date is our agreed-upon extension date, not your posting date. However, if you would like to turn in a postable draft at your deadline and then update it between then and your posting date, you may.
