    Summary

    Commander Cullen was many things: polite, courteous, and exceedingly handsome. That said, he wasn't quite to Dorian’s taste - too much blushing and naiveté. It would be like having sex with a puppy. Still, he was good for a flirt, no question.

    But that was before Dorian saw a new side to the Commander. Perhaps Cullen commanded in more places than just the battlefield. Only one way to find out.

    NOTE: Now that AO3 has the ability to exclude tags, I have added Iron Bull/Dorian Pavus to the relationship tags so that readers can filter for that ship. However, this is NOT an Adoribull-centric fic.

    If you write something on your skin, then it will show up on your soulmate's skin as well.
     

    James doesn't quite fall in love over physics discussions and cheeky book quotes scrawled over his heart, coding and riddles inked onto his skin, but he comes close. He does.

    And then he actually meets Q.

    Summary

    It is the late Regency period and Harry Hart is a gentleman well embraced by society. Charming, clever, fashionable and everything you could want beside you at a party. Society is quite happy for him when he inherits the title of Marquess. He is less so because the title comes with insurmountable debt, a number he can't even fathom or think how to escape.
    Merlin is a man of great wealth, and fearsome intellect. He wants the world for his niece, Roxy, but cannot give it to her, he is too Scottish, too brash, and the money too much acquired in trade.
    Both men are trapped and there is only one way forward, a marriage of convenience, no matter how they personally feel about each other. Merlin will restore Harry's title, Harry will grant access to society for Roxy. It is a bargain well met.
    They don't like each other, but as we all know in stories like these, one day they will love each other.

    Summary

    [Mystrade Supernatural/Sci-fi AU]

    23rd-century London is a divided city. Two hundred years of genetic tampering has fractured humanity into subspecies, not all of whom are willing to get along. The capital's crime-ridden streets are now home to some fairly fantastic variants of human—some of them more dangerous than others. For DI Greg Lestrade, Cross-Human Relations at Scotland Yard, it's all just part of the day job.

    But when a horrifying discovery forces him to seek the help of Mycroft Holmes, Head of Criminal Psychology, Greg might just be tested past his limits. Mycroft is unpleasant, unforgiving, and famously impossible to please—but if Greg needs anyone right now, it's a vampire expert.

    With dangerous forces fast on their tail, Greg and Mycroft must work together to avert the vampire threat before it's too late.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fucking perfection as always. A whole world build, new characters that are so lovable, and a pairing Mystrade that is so strong and perfect that I can't find my words in English.
