    Summary

    Here’s a joke for you: a Muslim, a zombie, and a leprechaun walk into a bar in Misery, Indiana. No one stares, because no one in the puckered, shitty asshole of Misery, Indiana gives a fuck. The Colts are playing. 

    “Fucking new gods,” the leprechaun mutters, hunching his shoulders almost up to his ears. “Gridiron and Pepsi commercials.”

     
    …or, Mad Sweeney, Laura Moon, and Salim-not-Salim get stuck on the road trip from hell. Urban legends, necrophilia, and the Midwest ensue.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    [Sweeney] wondered if discussion of religion really could make her that uncomfortable—her, a dead girl, traveling with a leprechaun and a jinn’s lover on a pilgrimage to resurrection. (Then again, the sheer irony of Laura Moon’s existence was choking. Being an atheist human sacrifice for a war between gods was just the cherry on a shit sundae.)

    Once there was a whore who thought she was free, freer than she’d ever been, freer than she was ever going to be.

    Oh, how the sands shift on Nassau Island.

    Summary

    In an alternate Westeros, the Starks carry wolves inside their skin by the old magic of the North, and Lannister magic weaves spells into gold. Tyrion Lannister comes to King's Landing to find Sansa Stark his family's captive. When he angers Joffrey enough for the king to try and use her wolf form to kill him, he and the wolf-maid find a sliver of common ground.

    "Don't worry about it," he whispered softly. Raggedly, a little, as his fear couldn't help but bleed into it. He said it anyway, because she wasn't a killer at heart, and it was too late for anything else now. "Don't worry, my lady. I know it isn't you, or even your wolf either. It was my nephew that sent me to this. It's our monster, not yours. It's just your misfortune that you were placed to be caught between us."

    "Energy is neither created nor destroyed," River said. That was a scientific fact, not faith, and she felt safe offering this as a comforting thought. It wasn't that she didn't know if there was an afterlife, it was that she couldn't be certain of it that made her reluctant to make reference to it. But science she was certain of.

    Summary

    Letting go of Aurora. Finding a home among other werewolves. The answers couldn't be any clearer, could they? Mulan and Ruby began their journey together for those very reasons, with each convinced that what they need must be hidden somewhere far ahead in the distance, unwilling to be found. But maybe those assumptions were wrong all along. Maybe everything they've been searching for is already there, standing right by their side.

    Why would an aimless journey bother her when she was, in this respect, exactly the same as Ruby? Mulan had nowhere else to go. Neither of them did. They were both as lost as each other.

    Summary

    At the ripe old age of 25, Diego is still struggling with that age-old problem of balancing work and pleasure. Especially when, for him, work is being a desk-bound police detective, and pleasure is running around back alleys as a masked vigilante. Lucky for him, he may have just stumbled on the perfect unsolvable case that will finally have him taking his career seriously. Unlucky for him, the only hope he has of cracking said unsolvable case lies with his drug riddled, party going, fashion innovator of a brother.

    If Klaus noticed the fat tears rolling down Diego’s cheeks, he didn’t say anything. He also didn’t say anything when Diego shuffled over and plopped his head into his lap. Instead he just ran his fingers through his hair the way Mom used to whenever they were upset, picking out small, happy memories from the ocean of bad ones. […] Somehow, Klaus never ran out of stories, and he continued well into the night, until Diego couldn’t stay awake any longer.

    "You couldn't fail if you wanted to," he assured and moved his hand atop hers. After all they'd shared this trip, it was the most innocent way to touch her, but it reminded him of all those times this year he'd gripped her hand in fear. It reminded him how far away those memories now seemed and all the new ones they'd made together this month. "We did it, Hermione."

    Ron's eyes slowly wandered up and down her body before finally settling on her face. She was about to ask him what was wrong, but the intensity of his gaze made the words die in her throat.
    "You're driving me crazy," he said softly. "You must know that."

    After months of relentless cold, hunger and fear, a betrayal and forgiveness, recent torture and a precarious escape, can the safety and comfort of Shell Cottage help Hermione and Ron ignite the fire that's been sparking between them for years?

    Hermione was aware of a stillness in Ron, as if his whole body had tensed up. She considered forcing her eyes open to see the expression on her best friend's face but then she felt him move. She heard him say something - something about "never leaving her again" - and then sensed him move to lie down next to her. She felt with gratitude the warmth of his body inches from hers and was vaguely aware of placing her arm across his chest before sleep finally took her.

    Her backpack is much lighter now, after one visit to each and every crew member's quarters, including Android's charging station. Birthdays only come once a year, after all. [...] Her only regret is that she won't get to see the looks on their faces, but maybe she can get Android to show her the ship's surveillance feeds. It's for a good cause. Happy and satisfied, she drops out of the vents onto her bed -- and into a whole world of glitter.

    Summary

    They stay in Wanda’s room for a while, as Vision pieces the thoughts together, bouncing ideas and concepts off her in English and Sokovian both until they have some cohesive idea of what to say.

    “You want me to help too?” Wanda checks for a third time and for a third time Vision nods.

    “You helped me be certain,” they say. “And… you know better than I do, when they do not understand, or when they misunderstand.”

    Wanda smiles at that, takes Vision’s hand in hers and leans to press a kiss to Vision’s cheek, quick and impulsive.

    Every third page Wanda looks up over the pages at them, half-concerned.

    “He said nothing bad,” Vision assures her, after the fourth time. “I appreciate the concern but… he said nothing bad.”

    Wanda’s lips purse. “He said something, though. Didn’t he?”

    Vision smiles at that. “A joke,” they say. “He said, You may have been built half from code, but you’re certainly not binary.”

    The woman turned up early in the morn.

    Anne, who had indulged in a bit of rum the night before—enough to sleep but not enough to affect her balance—snapped awake at the uneven beat of a hand against the door. She’d been expecting someone, likely another survivor from Hornigold’s crew or a bounty hunter from the Spanish, but she hadn’t expected anyone to knock.

    Summary

    Anne nestles into his shoulder, her hair brushing against his cheek, and suddenly Jack can breathe properly for the first time in weeks. Here they are, together, in balance as they’ve been from the beginning. Complete again.

    When he opens his eyes Max is watching them from across the street. Her posture is carefully neutral, but her eyes are… solemn. Stoic. Filled with a kind of barren peace. She always could convey so much with just a look.

    Something twinges uncomfortably behind Jack’s breastbone. /Oh./ Perhaps not so in balance after all.

     

    Written for BS Rarepair Week: Jack and his ladies, and the love he has for them both. Set during late s4.

    She shifts just enough to hook her little finger around his thumb, urging him further until his hand is resting atop hers, which is resting atop Anne’s. It’s the last time any of them move before they fall asleep. Against his side, he feels rather than hears Anne’s contented sigh, and it feels like coming home.

    The door opened. They all turned to see Featherstone, standing at a loss for words in the doorway, staring at them: Max dressed up like a pirate, looking slyly out from under the brim of Anne’s hat, Anne with her hair up, mustachioed, hand on her hip over Jack’s embroidered coat, and Jack, eyebrow raised, made up like a wealthy madam.
