You nod, and she smiles brightly. "Great! Oh, just to warn you, the library doesn't just hold the latest magazines and novels ... there was a group of Juniors several years back that fancied themselves budding authors, and we ended up with a lot of contributions from them. If you find those books, um ... well, don't say I didn't warn you. Some of them are pretty groan-worthy. " The blond sighs, then straightens and speaks more formally. "Um, anyway, if there's anything you're looking for, just ask, okay? And please, no eating or drinking while you're handling the books!"
**Please note that all fanfiction in this area is, well ... old. It has no bearing on the current Brotherhood or timeline whatsoever, and the characters are considerably different from their rebooted selves. We just have this here for anybody that perhaps wanted to reread the old stuff from the BOTB's heyday. We haven't spellchecked or grammatically edited this stuff in any way, because there's a ton of it ... maybe if we get bored, someday...
