** Where there is no description it means that I have been unable to find one and therefore I am either a) waiting to read the story so that I can write one or b) waiting for someone to provide me with one. So if you have read the story and want to send me a short description, please do. Lyn

Where descriptions are in quotation marks (" "), I have copied the description from either the author or someone else. I hope they won't mind but I figure their words are better than mine (and I just don't have time to read all the recs that show up on TS Storyfinders.) :-)

Where Requested Theme is "-", the person requesting the story has been looking for that specific story not a story type.
