    Summary

    He had hated it, he tries to tell himself every time, he had hated every single minute of her, of Germany’s long legs and carefree laughs, of the humiliation and how he had used her to get things, little things, a few checks on the mantle of his chimney and the insurance that he wouldn’t be put through the same drill as the ones in the East, the work and the beatings and the days spent in silence in empty cells.

    Funny wars with strange development and sour endings.

    Summary

    Holmes smiled genuinely and turned away from the hearth to look at Trevor. “I did not perceive you to be a jealous man, Mr. Trevor. Surely, you are aware that I do not appreciate women in the way that the apparent majority of men do.”

    The light of the fire blurred Holmes’s strong features, casting his face in shadow, reminding Trevor of the eager young face he remembered from university. He pushed the detective playfully and swatted at his arm. “I am not jealous. I was simply making an observation.”

    “One in which the underlying jealousy was very apparent.” Holmes grinned and curled his arm around Trevor’s waist, pulling him closer. “I have missed your affection as much as you have missed mine. I can assure you.”

    -o-O-o-

    A historical AU, vaguely Vampiric, in which Sherlock and Victor wait an entire century to be together. However, their paths do often cross along the way.

    Summary

    [Based on Tumblr post by Hime1999]

    The world is locked in the second World War, and Eren Jaeger is a German soldier who has all his memories intact from his previous life in the Survey Corps and has finally found the person he'd been looking for in one of the most unexpected of places.
    Rivaille is a French Jew who has no memories of the Corps at all. Despite having tried desperately to keep out of the camps, he somehow felt he could trust the odd young man, though he was pretty sure he'd gone crazy for something like that.

    “Captain Levi, I’ve finally found you. This time, I'm going to be the one to protect you."

    Summary

    Steve wasn't sore. He was irritated, and more than a little confused. He didn't understand Bucky. He'd thrown himself at Steve while Steve was in rut a few weeks ago, and they'd literally spent days pretty much doing pretty much nothing but getting one another off and then dozing in each others arms. It had been nice, it had been affectionate, and maybe Steve was just a dumbass who thought that maybe that meant something (or maybe he was an alpha who became a bit too possessive when he found something he wanted to be his, but god, he hoped that wasn't it). But apparently not.

     

    Or 'Steve wakes up to Bucky jerking off next to him in the middle of the night and porn ensues'.

    Summary

    Bucky is angrier at Steve than he’s ever been in his whole life.

    Steve has made a lot of damn punk fool decisions before, and Bucky’s tried to head off as many at the pass; but there is no accounting for this Captain America horseshit. None.
