    Summary

    Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.

    As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.

    Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.

    Summary

    Maybe it's the little girl whose disappearance turned into a murder, and whose murder turned into a cold case, and who has now apparently decided to move in with him. Maybe it's the unacceptable hole left in his life when his dumb best friend and partner in (the prevention of) crime decided to go and get himself killed. Maybe it's his brother, whose high-profile career and fantastic girlfriend and first-child-on-the-way are steadily leaving Dean in the dust. Pick one. Pick all of them. The why doesn't matter so much as the what, and the what is this: Dean is pretty sure he's going completely, certifiably insane. Sure, he hasn't started wearing all his clothes inside out, and he still showers on a regular basis (anyways, that's not crazy, just a little eccentric); but there's no getting around the fact that he just threw away his life, his career, and his reputation by dragging out his mom's old necromancy book and summoning a Class A Forbidden Entity to his attic. A cranky one, too. With horrendous bed-head.

    Summary

    So, you know how musicals are set in a world where people just burst into song every five minutes, and everyone around them automatically knows to join in with the tune and choreography? This fic is set in that world.

    John finds it extremely frustrating that Sherlock won't sing their theme song with him.

    Not Season 3-compliant.
     

    Thanks to Sapph, Earlgreytea68 and Passeriform for betaing/lyric help (any appalling bad lyrics remain my fault), and Ariane DeVere for her very useful episode transcripts.

    Summary

    “You can’t possibly be in love with him,” Natasha said, deadpan, her expression not exactly disbelief, as that would imply a sort of possibility that there was any way one could believe this.

    “Don’t mock my pain!” Clint whined, slightly muffled by the pillow he had pressed his face into.

    “The only thing you know about him is that he doodles cute octopi,” Natasha reiterated, looking at Clint in a way that was a close to gaping as she could get.

    “I know!” Clint moaned. “Also, the correct plural is octopuses, not octopi.”

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes has long been fascinated with (and haunted by) the tragic story of his namesake cousin. When his nightmares about it grow unbearable and he starts seeing hypnotherapist Jim Moriarty, however, Sherlock begins to wonder whether he himself is his cousin's reincarnation. Have Sherlock and the modern John Watson known each other before this life? Can Sherlock solve a nineteenth-century murder and prove the historic Dr. Watson innocent, and also solve the current string of oddly-posed unidentified corpses?

    Summary

    Monsters are overrunning the world, due in part to over-hunting of the dragons who used to keep them in check. Ex-dragon slayer Clint Barton finds himself changing careers, and forging an alliance beginning with the black dragon, Ton'i.

    Of course, this is dependent on Clint keeping Ton'i in coffee.

    AND COMPLETED as a CHRISTMAS present for my readers. I hope you enjoy it. :^)
