    Summary

    December 2039 thru sometime in 2040.

    An android from Bridget's past contacts her for assistance when he finds his business, converted Eden clubs, in more trouble then he can handle.

    Based on BBC Sherlock episode "A Scandal in Belgravia" with embellishment from episode "A Study in Pink" and Sherlock Holmes short story "The Problem of Thor Bridge."

    We stared at each other for a minute daring the other to start the chase.

    “Are you ready?” Connor finally asked. I nodded and put my hand on the door handle.

    “Ok,” he said, flourishing with his hand, “Go.”

    I calmly started my timers and got out of the car, deliberately choosing to walk directly in front of him. I walked forward to the next line of cars, turned and held my middle fingers up then walked out of sight. I saw Connor grin vindictively before I disappeared behind the cars.

    Summary

    It was with heavy, bone-deep resignation that Ciel opened his eyes to the familiar canopy of his bed. For a long, hazy moment, there were no thoughts. Then a whisper slipped into his mind: “Ah. Another morning. Damn.”

    ...

    There was one thing, it seemed, that sparked some motivation in him; the same single thing which kept him going through the worst of it: the dark, bitter resentment that Ciel held inside his stomach: his festering rage and refusal to show weakness, especially before the creature who had seen him at his lowest.

    Summary

    Just a Chicken and Crispy Bacon slowly learning how to let other people in after their respective traumatic childhoods at the hands of a broken Hero society.
    Ft. Hamlet references

    Takes place Pre-Liberation Army arc. Canon compliant up until that point.
    _________________________________________

    About a month into his assignment, Hawks received the order from The League to take down a Pro, naturally he’d called the President and asked for her assistance.

    “What is it Hawks.”

    “Yo Madam Prez, so I was talking to my contact the other day-”

    “Get to it Hawks, I’m busy.”

    “They want me to kill a Pro.”

    “And why are you contacting me?”

    “What- because I can’t-”

    “Are you aware of Jeanist’s current condition? He is not in condition to defend himself in the case of any attack or accident that should befall him. You were instructed to do anything necessary to gain the League of Villain’s trust, do not contact me again Hawks until you have a place among their ranks.”

    The line promptly went dead and Hawks came to the horribly realization of exactly what this mission was.

    A suicide attempt wrapped in political favors and unpaid debts.

    Summary

    Its literally the play Hamlet but I rewrote it as a novel in (mostly) modern English because god gave me free will and I'm gonna make him regret it. Lines from the original play have been edited to make it more readable for audiences that aren't over 400 years dead, but the plot is the same. Each chapter will (likely) be one scene.

    Summary

    Lesbian gf: My thoughts about how they’ve given the largest female role in this production to a man aside, congrats on Beatrice.

    Me:ty, ty, don’t be salty just becoz lan qiren decided im the prettiest

    He follows it up with the most fabulous hairflick gif he can find. She sends him back an eyeroll and a pukey emoji.

    Lesbian gf: Speaking of. How about that Benedick, huh? Followed by two side eye emojis and the Jordan Peele sweating GIF for good measure.

    He pulls up the email again. He’d been so giddy at the sight of Wen Qing and Jiejie’s names on the list that he’d barely read the rest of it. He scrolls back up to the top, reading it properly this time.

    And there, just above his own name is:

    Benedick- Lan Wangji.

    Well, fuck.

    OR.

    The Drama School/Shakespeare AU no one asked for. In their final year at the Gusu Acting School, and with their agency showcase fast approaching, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji are cast opposite each other as quarrelling lovers Beatrice and Benedick in ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. The only problem is, they hate each other.

    Don’t they?

    Summary

    It was 2 AM, and Jaskier was surrounded by cocks. Just another Wednesday night: dicks, shitty alcohol, and Jaskier carrying on the proud tradition of terrible decisions made under the influence of both. It would've been fine, just like all the other times - if not for his stupidly gorgeous serial killer roommate's unanticipated involvement.

    Summary

     

    A Prequel to Journey of a Thousand Kisses. You don't need to have read Journey and Sojourn to start this story. It can stand alone on its own. But if you want to read the others and haven't yet, don't read this summary; it has spoilers!

    The Thousand Kisses Series tells the story of the ideal life Jamie and Claire crafted for themselves and their family using the knowledge and abilities unique to time travelers. But their life hasn't always been so perfect. This is a tale about how our young lovers met in a loop before that fateful ride to Lallybroch and how they fell in love in an entirely different way. When tragedy strikes, how might Jamie and Claire fix what's gone wrong and ensure it never happens again?

    For the sake of readers new to this story: Frank died years ago in the war, and Jamie no longer has a price on his head (he returned from Paris after Colum and other family members advocated for the charges against him to be dropped).

    Summary

    She tries to do the accounts. He tries to learn Shakespeare.

    -

    A plan to boost his meagre pension fund and to give him a comfortable life after retirement has all gone terribly wrong for charismatic butler Turton! He's been given the old 'heave ho', kicked out on his ear with only the most basic of references. What is he going to do next?

    The lone wolf that is Amos Turton has to start all over again. Learning how to fit into this new, weird household is tricky when you're used to following your own rules. Within the confines of the rigid Victorian class system of course. Well, mostly... He's keeping quiet, biding his time and thinking of the money and his pension pot!

    Victorian London is really not a kind place for the serving classes and definitely not a good place to be destitute and poor. Which he is in danger of becoming...

    -

    Set in the Belgravia - TV Series and Book verse. All this takes place after episode 6 - the finale of the TV series - and after the book has finished.

    It is the early 1840s.

    -

    Alright Bambinos, please read and enjoy!
