    Summary

    The year is 1937 in Shanghai, China. Civilians are fleeing the city as there is the threat of war looming over everyone's heads. The Japanese troops are inching closer to invading the city center once more.

    A high ranking military general of the Chinese Republican Party named Xiao Zhan is inevitably faced with the hardships and turmoils of trying to save his beloved city and country. One day, Xiao Zhan is patrolling the city as per usual when a rambunctious teenage boy named Wang Yibo bumps into him. Perhaps it is fate or a curse in disguise, but upon meeting the teenager, Xiao Zhan's life becomes increasingly more complicated.

    This is a story about budding romance, war, tragedy, and salvation. There is something undoubtedly touching about being madly in love when the world is crumbling into pieces around you.

    Summary

    Aziraphale hasn't seen Crowley for almost two years since the church bombing. Then suddenly the demon is barging into his bookshop, drunk and upset, begging the angel to kill him.

    The title of the story comes from the following quote by Albert Camus: "Man stands face to face with the irrational. He feels within him his longing for happiness and for reason. The absurd is born of this confrontation between the human need and the unreasonable silence of the world."

    Summary

    Having worked undercover across Europe for the majority of wartime, Juliette Chevalier has become used to living as a mere shadow of the world. Never staying in one place too long to be caught and never returning home, the only family she has known since 1939 has been the men she’s served alongside.

    However, when the tide of the war begins to turn and the need for brute force becomes more than ever before, Juliette finds herself thrust among the ranks of a group of brash American paratroopers, and suddenly she has to learn how to live in the light again. One can never remain a shadow forever.

    Summary

    Becoming an SS colonel’s mistress was something of an unexpected fantasy, and Krista Washburn planned to use that position to her advantage. It would take one trip to the bar to get the ball rolling, one SS gala to gain momentum, and one Gestapo major to nearly derail it all.

    **Warning: This story will include strong language, sexual content, marijuana usage, and brief violence.

    **This story will likely be riddled with historical inaccuracies and unlikely outcomes to many actions, because I'm going to be fully transparent here, I didn't do much research for this.

    (I do not in any way shape or form own the character Colonel Hans Landa or any other references to Inglourious Basterds)

    Summary

    Unspeakable Granger wakes up with missing memories in Hogwarts...in 1942. Hermione might not remember much, but she knew that even post-Voldemort, there were many wannabe dark lords she and her friends had to fight against. The world wasn't automatically sunshine and roses just because they've defeated Voldemort.

    Also, go back? What go back? If she doesn't even know how she got here with all the wounds she had, then there's really no guarantee that a safe way to jump forward exists!

    Yet the possibilities that are open to her...

    if she could change the wizarding world half a century earlier, maybe they'd be more prepared against dark lords in the future. Perhaps a better world for the friends she'd left. With this in mind, Hermione Curie (Granger) sets out to use her field healer and master arithmancer abilities to the fullest (if she had to invent a couple of things earlier than they actually happened in her old future, so be it). Not to mention that in her very-biased-opinion, the wizarding world needs to be dragged out of its old prejudices, kicking and screaming if necessary. But who is that particular prefect? Her mind itches at seeing him…

    Summary

    Mira knew then that her mission was now standing on the edge of a knife. The moment she caught his gaze staring at her from across the ballroom, singling her out despite the sea of people between them, she knew. She felt her heart leap to her throat at the sight of those deep, violet eyes watching her with an unreadable expression on his face. Such a perfectly exhibited poker face. He knows. A voice whispers at the back of her mind, causing a chill to run down her spine. Still, she can’t turn her back now.
    Play the role. Act like you belong. She repeated over and over again in her mind as she broke eye contact with the Russian, acting as if he was someone not worthy of her giving the time of the day.
    Mirava Velarios had a mission. And that was to spy on Joseph Stalin—Premier of the Soviet Union. It was a dangerous task. One she knew that could cost her everything. She had spent months mastering a plan to get herself close to the Kremlin. She had also made plans for escape should things go wrong. But what she never thought of adding into the formula of her plans was the complicated and unstable Ivan Braginsky himself. He was relentless in his chase for her and she was just as unyielding to bend.

    This was originally titled "Boy Trouble," but it has been relabeled to avoid any implication that it is slash. It is definitely not.

    Summary

    Tom re-read the letter twice more to make sure he was not hallucinating before refolding it and returning it to it’s envelope.

    Strangely, the first emotion he felt was not fury, at the absolute audacity of the woman, but rather, he felt hollow. There wasn’t the longing that he would have once felt as a child, wishing to be adopted, there was just...nothing. He did not feel sadness, anger, joy or even confusion.

    It’s 1943, Grindelwald’s war rages on, and Tom Riddle discovers there is more to the Riddle family than he originally anticipated.

    Summary

    Das hier ist eine Geschichte darüber, wie Jonathan und Herman sich vor all den Jahren in London kennengelernt haben - wie sie Partner (in crime) wurden und was sie in den Jahren zwischen London und Brooklyn getan haben...und auch einige Teile nach Brooklyn.

    Herman Einstein ist ein junger plastischer Chirurg in London um 1927, als er einen mysteriösen jungen Fremden trifft. Kurz darauf ist nichts in seinem Leben mehr so wie zuvor...aber es hat sich nicht zum Schlechten gewendet, oder?

    Da Jonathan in dieser Geschichte ist, wird es einige blutigere Teile geben, allerdings nicht zu graphic, weil ich das nicht sehen/schreiben könnte;)
    Ich denke, die tags sagen bereits alles, was man über diese Geschichte wissen muss, ohne zu viel zu verraten :)
    UND wie in den Tags erwähnt - der non-con-Teil befindet sich in einem der Kapitel - ich werde am Anfang eine Warnung posten - und es ist nicht zwischen Jonathan und Herman (das ist ein bisschen gespoilert, aber ich möchte trotzdem, dass ihr es wisst!)

    Ich hoffe es gefällt euch - Feedback ist immer willkommen: D
