Welcome to the page for the hanfic series Like Ashes. The stories in this series are written by myself (Bethany), Calla, Diamond, Elizabeth, Galadriel, Jaerie, Lindsay and Tara Marie. Click the guestbook link above to leave us feedback or visit the “extras” page to find some other ways to contact us.


When fame comes, everyone pays the price.

Note: These stories can be read in any order. Summaries for additional stories will be added over time.

A Lesson In Tightropes: Zac always said he was the shy one, but no one believed him. When no one sees who you really are, it’s all too easy for dangerous secrets to stay hidden.


These stories are entirely fictional and absolutely no harm or slander are intended by them. The characters are real people who most certainly do not belong to us. Although we’ve used their lives as fodder for our stories, this is a fictionalized version of events that is not meant to be taken as truth.

We are not Hanson, members of their family or anyone else associated with the band, their management and 3CG.

Absolutely no money at all is being made from these stories; it’s all just for good, angsty fun.

Which is to say, Rays of Light is finished! I hope you’ve all enjoyed it. I know I have. Another few chapters of Weightless have been added as well, but it is far from done. So come back soon for more!

A quick note

April 23rd, 2017

I haven’t posted to the blog here in a while, but I do want anyone who lands here to know that I am still adding chapters regularly. Liz and KT are both churning them out so fast that I don’t always post here when I add a new one, because I know I’ll be back the next day to add another.


March 12th, 2017

New chapters have been updated this weekend to both Rays of Light and Weightless. Enjoy!


March 5th, 2017

New chapters of both Rays of Light and Weightless have been added! So what are you waiting for? Check them out now!

New fic! New fic!

February 27th, 2017

You may have noticed the coming soon page here, or my tweet a few days ago. Or maybe not. In any case, there’s a new fic to be read in this series! KT volunteered to write from Zoe’s point of view, and I am already in love with what she brings to this series. I hope you all enjoy it too. Chapter one is posted, and more will be coming very, very soon.

Weightless, chapter seven!

January 28th, 2017

Yes, it’s here! I know it’s been a long time since the last update, but Liz tells me she’s feeling pretty inspired lately. So expect more chapters of Weightless in the near future!

Two new chapters!

November 29th, 2016

I’ve just added chapters of both Brothers’ Keeper and Weightless. Enjoy!

Brothers’ Keeper is here!

October 24th, 2016

That’s right, Tara’s Ike fic is officially here. I’m so excited to see how it fits into the series as a whole, and I hope you are, too. So far, it’s just the first chapter, but there’s plenty more where that came from.

Weightless update

October 15th, 2016

Just one new chapter of Weightless today. Check it out and sign the guestbook to let Liz know what you think of it!


September 28th, 2016

That’s right, Tightropes is officially done! I hope you’ve all enjoyed it. The epilogue is posted now, so you’ll be seeing less and less frequent updates here in the future. Elizabeth is still working on Weightless, and another story in the series may be posted soon. So check back for that, but I may not posted all of their chapter’s immediately. I may stockpile a bit. Nevertheless, keep your eyes on this page, because this series is far, far from done.
