    Summary

    Joan smiled at her, feeling her heart burst with fondness.
    She lowered her head, whispering in Sherlock’s ear, “You’re a bee charmer, my dear Sherlock Holmes, an adorable bee charmer...”
    Sherlock smiled at nothing, keeping her eyes closed and gripping a bit more tightly onto Joan’s hand.
    Joan sighed with happiness, resting her head against the trunk behind her. She felt happy like one can only feel when falling in love on a summer’s day.

     

    Loose reinterpretation of the novel “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café”. I repeat: loose.

    Summary

    Thea the Queen runs a thriving business of bootleg liquor, sleights of hand, and loaded guns.


    Written for GenFic Minis Round 5: Super Shift (and another doodad applied because I'm having some killer writer's block rn). There were two prompts in my assignment: an Arrow one, in which Thea runs her own lady-ruled speakeasy, and a Flarrowverse/Leverage fusion with as many ladies as I could include.* I combined them both to make whatever exactly this turned out being.

    *Some of the ladies are only mentioned and don't appear, but there's only one male character here, (because I wanted some Thea/Oliver bickering.)

    Summary

    It is the salt on the sea breezes that keep me a working man, when the docks crack and sway as though falling trees and harsh iron waves bombard the ships in a worldly warfare that I had been to young to see, and the skies indubitably change to storms that release their pennies of water droplets.

    Summary

    Every boy has their dream…. mine just includes owning a bar and someday, hopefully falling in love

    ~~~~~~

    “This bar is a place for people to be happy, and enjoy themselves.” I told Jemma, hoping to cheer her up.

    “Then I guess I’ll leave then - I’m in the wrong place.” She said, slowly standing up.

    I don’t know what made me stop her. Normally I would be happy to let one customer go, knowing I would gain numerous more. Plus I could get back to tending to the bar, but I couldn’t. I grabbed her hand, causing her to stop and turn around.

    “That’s not what I meant. I’m saying that we’ve gotta cheer you up. So … Let’s Dance” I told her before dragging her onto the empty space used for a dance floor.
