    Summary

    In the quiet town of Broadway, UK, a group of theatre enthusiasts are rehearsing their latest play – a jukebox musical retelling of Shakespeare’s "Hamlet". But when on the morning of the premiere, the lead actor is found dead onstage, it's up to D.I. Peter Carlisle, who came to Broadway to escape his past, and D.I. Alec Hardy, who wanted to take some time off and is really bloody annoyed about being transferred here on short notice, to get to the bottom of what happened... and despite the limited number of suspects, the means and motive are anything but clear.

    Also, where the hell is that music coming from? And why is everybody singing?

    Summary

    They can't stay away from each other. Simon knew he shouldn't have sent the Christmas present to Wille, but he had no impulse control when it came to him. What can he say? He'd be a fool if he didn't miss him.

    Wilhelm didn't want to be alone. It was probably why he sent the present in the first place, but he loved Simon and he'd never forgive himself if he just let him go.

    Separated but connected by a mutual desire, a string as thin as ice, to be together despite everything that drove them apart.

    They didn't have a snowball's chance in hell, did they?

    ----

    Set directly post-canon. This is how I want season two to go.

    Summary

    "A small part of him must have known it was inevitable. Maybe that was why, when a memory of his time with the Dursley’s came up during Harry’s Occlumency lessons with Snape, he simply stared back at the man with defiance in his eyes after the spell was canceled."

    Every moment has the potential to snowball into something that will change the course of history. If you can't see the future, how will you know the change is positive?

    Summary

    Bella threw her head back and laughed, the sound like little bells. Harry wondered how such a beautiful woman could have a personality like rotten fruit. "Is that a threat, ickle bickle prince Potter?" she cooed.

    Harry said nothing, firmly looking away, and she suddenly turned serious.

    "Duke Thomas is a powerful man," she hummed in a low tone. "I've been acquainted with him for quite some time, and he's always gotten what he wants."

     

    In a bastardisation of Shakespeare's Hamlet, Harry's mother remarries shortly after his father's death to James' half-brother, Thomas, much to Harry's confusion and disgust. First a duke, now a king, it seems that nothing will stand in his uncle's way when it comes to getting what he wants. Not Lily, not propriety, and most certainly not Harry himself.

    Summary

    With the end of the war came new experiences; a world where there were no megalomaniacs to dictate what he did with his life. Simple things, like working for himself, pursuing a hobby, and taking regular strolls to his local museum had become commonplace. Severus discovered a passion for art, drawing and capturing the world as he saw it. It was fortunate that this was the case, as he had no idea a chance encounter would see him coming face-to-face with his muse.

    Summary

    They had met on a one-off hunt in the dark. It seemed to define them, the dark. Place and time of safety, mystery, promise. Hanging strange, yet soothing; antithetical to the harshly glaring light of day. But it couldn't hide forever who they were.

    (Or a possible way that Dean met and got to know Lee, and why they were and could have remained still so important to each other so many years later)

    Summary

    Ronnie looks at him over her mocha, a sweet choice of beverage David is continually surprised by, given how salty she usually is. “I have a feeling you’ll be getting that a lot.”

    “What? Swooning ingenues?”

    “People slow to realize that Patrick Brewer is human just like the rest of us.”

    David makes a face because he knows exactly how Patrick would respond to that. An eye roll would definitely be involved.

    Or, this is your half-hour call to Part Two of Favored Nations. Half hour.

    Summary

    Soon to be eighteen, Ryder Scott lives in Syracuse, is a wannabe actor and coder, and is the son of a police officer. A year after the disappearances of his two favorite streamers and his favorite artist, there has been little police progress. No one is any closer to discovering who the culprit might be. Displeased, he decides to get to the bottom of it on his own.

    With reluctant help from his timid girlfriend, he attempts to figure out who’s behind the elusive indie game that connects the cases. But when he gets his answer, he realizes he might’ve dug too far―and unwittingly dug a grave or two.

    A short fictional suspense novel by Noëlle McHenry about a high schooler who becomes the next target of a ruthless serial killer. Sequel to Our Sick Obsessions.

    Summary

    Steve had a list. A little notebook with all the things he'd missed or feels the need to catch up on, whether someone else's or his own.

    Now Bucky has the notebook.

    But Bucky has no need to catch up. He saw enough of the times whenever Hydra took him off ice.

    Does anything in the modern world make any sense to him? No. Does he try to figure it out and deal? Yes, but with copious amounts of surly staring at his therapist, and colleagues, and pretty much everything else.

    Not with the use of some ... what's the opposite of nostalgic? Prescient? Hell, he doesn't know. He just knows he doesn't get help from a notebook.

    Does anything help? Therapy - maybe. Time will tell on that. Writing names in the book of everyone he's ever killed? He remembers them, so. Hears that infuriating voice telling him to DO something. Not just for himself. Could help.

    But somehow vestiges of the past help too. Strangely enough he finds this out when he starts reading some old copy of, of all things, a Shakespeare play.

    Summary

    Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day for Macbeth, but not so for Alex and the production of Hamlet that he is directing and starring in. And while he's stuck repeating the day of the performance over and over, mishaps of all kinds befall the cast.

    Summary

    Ronnie is blinking at him like David just announced he wants to take tap lessons so he can headline a revival of 42nd Street.

    “Patrick Brewer,” she drawls, eyebrow raised in what might be respect. Incredulity, but respect. “David, when I said you needed a name to get your next project off the ground, I didn’t expect you to point to the cover of People Magazine and say, ‘ah yes, him.”

    “Excuse you, it was Vanity Fair.”

    Or, a music superstar and a disgraced theatre director try to find common ground in the state of Denmark.
