    Alternatively titled: Five Ways Sir Pentious Didn’t Get the Girl, and One Time She Got Him Instead

    The last thing Angel Dust expected when he woke up strapped to a table was that his good pal Edgelord needed advice on wooing an old buddy of his, but never let it be said that Angel stood in the way of a man looking to get some (sorry, to “court a lovely young woman”).

    Sir Pentious may not live to regret his life choices, but at least he’ll die with style!

    Summary

    Story of Teddy and Billy set in Victorian Britain. One is a translator in the Foreign Office, the other a foreign prince.

    William Kaplan is an underpaid and overworked civil servant working for the British Foreign Office, serving as an interpreter and translator, and with no foreseeable prospects of promotion. He leads a lonely and isolated life, having almost convinced himself that he is happy and content in his little life of solitude.

    His carefully built life of self-deceit and the pretence of being utterly normal is however disrupted when he is ordered to serve as an interpreter for a visiting foreign prince. The man he must accompany is so unlike any other person William has ever met, who just with his gentle demeanour and handsome looks makes the Englishman realise the hollowness of his life.

    Can he supress the wrong and illegal feelings he starts to have for the Prince, feelings he has for so long kept in control, or will they set him on a road to ruin and cause his downfall?

    Summary

    No matter what Johnny does it’s all useless because his negative karma will never let him have anything, not even his summer vacation. His father insists on dragging him to England every summer which he hates and dreads with a passion because it reminds him of his brother’s death. He’s miserable but his father won’t allow him to stay locked in his room so he ends up spending most of his time at the stables. There is a boy around his age that works at the stables almost every day so he decides to try to befriend him.

    Focuses on the years 1881-1886 (Johnny ages 10-15 and Diego ages 11-16).

    Summary

    Diego and Hot Pants seek a relic of immortality known as la Màscara de Piedra and the saint’s corpse as they plot to end/recreate The World. They travel through the United States, Mexico, England, and then to the East on a bizarre adventure in pursuit of their plan to create The New World. They desire to right the injustices of their lives and escape the chains of fate while exacting retribution against the current World.

    Originally started as a naked huddling for warmth one off but then it evolved into exploring their dark desires which then led to an actual story (and not just me making them have all kinds of sex, though they continue to have all kinds of sex, huhu).

    Summary

     The Admiralty allowed James three days to get his affairs in order before he was to report to Portsmouth and the fast ship bound for Gibraltar where Hibernia would meet him. He could have been dispatched as soon as he had received his orders; it would have been well within the Admiralty's rights to do so, in fact Francis and James had both expected it, but as it was they had been given time. And plenty of it, Francis had thought - but what did he know?

    Summary

    «Vaghiamo nel buio più totale, amico mio. L’unica fiammella che intravvedo è quella della speranza che nella sua cassaforte o scrivania vi siano dei documenti incriminanti, cosa che ritengo assai probabile per un uomo meticoloso come Milverton».
    E detto ciò si chiuse in un silenzio ermetico, prendendo la decisione di compensare il mancato concerto con una sua esibizione al violino, la quale, sinceramente, mi godetti con estremo piacere più di quanto sarebbe accaduto di fronte ad un gruppo di estranei muniti di spartito.

    Summary

    "Colui che mi presentò davanti Mrs. Hudson non era, tuttavia, uno dei soliti criminali che frequentavano la casa: costui era un giovane, alto quasi quanto il sottoscritto, dal volto incantevole e fanciullesco e dalla pelle rosea. Un naso all'insù separava due grandi occhi azzurri, ornati da una corona di ciglia bionde come i capelli.
    Era vestito con una giacca di velluto color terra, ornata da un’appariscente camelia bianca che sembrava soffrire l’ora ormai tarda del pomeriggio. Una cravatta di fine seta nera, fissata da una perla lucente, denotava la sua ricchezza, come il cappotto appoggiato al braccio e il cilindro dalla fodera sanguigna."

    Summary

    [...] Fu per l’appunto in una sera di ottobre di quello stesso anno che mi avviai verso casa con passo lento, deciso a camminare piuttosto che a prendere una carrozza. Avevo passato l’intera giornata ad ascoltare ed auscultare pazienti, e l’idea di una boccata di aria fresca mi spinse a camminare lungo le vie mal illuminate della città.
    Fischiettavo sovrappensiero, pregustando già la cena, quando svoltai in una stradina alberata che spesso io ed Holmes sfruttavamo per tagliare, evitando vie ben più trafficate. Gli ultimi baluginii di un sole morente si riflettevano sulle vetrate delle case a schiera, e mi considerai fortunato di essere l’unico presente a godersi uno spettacolo tanto semplice quanto piacevole.
    Ma mi resi conto di non essere davvero il solo.
    In fondo alla strada, in un crocevia dove la luce era già scomparsa da svariati minuti, vi erano due gentiluomini.

    Summary

    “Hiding?” I echoed sharply. “Absolutely not. That would be tantamount to admitting our guilt.”
    He smiled and patted my knee. “There. There’s my army captain.”
    “Army?” I echoed.
    “Oh, yes, John. Do not think for even a moment that we are doing anything but going into battle.”

    Someone threatens Dr. John Watson and Sherlock Holmes with exposure.

    Summary

    "You’ve hidden away your portrait," Tessa said in a colorless voice, keeping her eyes fixed on Dorian.

    "A matter of modesty," he replied without flinching. "I realized that hanging one’s own image in the living room was as tastless as laughing at one’s own jokes."

    He lowered his head slightly and bent down to kiss Tessa’s hand.
    "Lady Herondale," he murmured in a velvet voice "you haven't aged a day."

    "I could say the same about you, Dorian."

    He smiled.
    "Oh, you’re flattering me!”

    "How silly of me, I actually meant to pity you." she replied icily. "Unlike you, I have never considered immortality a privilege."

     

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tessa Gray meets Dorian Gray, because London is not that big and immortals all know each other anyway.

    Summary



    An electively mute genderqueer James Fitzjames is sold by his benefactor into marriage to a former sea captain, Sir John Franklin, now a New Zealand frontiersman, bringing his young son Jonathan-Irving with him. James has not spoken a word since he was six and he expresses himself through his piano playing and through sign language, for which his son, in parent-child role reversal, has served as his interpreter.

    In New Zealand, James' precious piano is sold by Franklin to his friend of Irish extract, a fellow forester and former sea captain, Francis Crozier in exchange for more land. Determined to regain his piano, James enters into an arrangement proposed by Francis in which he can earn his piano back at a rate of one piano key per piano lesson, provided that he can observe him and do "things he likes" while he plays. The "lessons" with Francis become a slow seduction for his affection, with Francis soon requesting increased intimacy in exchange for greater numbers of keys...
