    Summary

    As WW2 draws to a close, Italy looks back on his alliance, the alliance that he had forsaken, remembering what they had been and what they had become. He really should have known better...

    Summary

    It's 1942 and the Nazi occupation in France has led to the growing force of the French Résistance. Erwin Smith, Austrian army deserter, works among these soldiers for freedom. They're a collection of the bravest, the martyrs, the fools, the lost, the lonely, and those who have no other choice but to take up arms against the Nazi threat. On their nights of temporary freedom, where they relinquish their self-appointed duties to the liberation of the French state, they waste their hours with drink and entertainment at the Ailes de la Liberté, a cabaret and club. It is there that Erwin Smith meets Rivaille, the sharp-tongued, seductive, mysterious star of the show, who Erwin finds himself too curious to know

    Summary

    Two different souls, two different people, two different passions, yet they belong to three different time periods. Loki, a painter who knows the secret of his own past, and Thor, a college student who just wanted to fix that darkness he himself created in his own past. For each life, they would meet and fall in love, yet they would separate. Their souls are yearning for one another, but can this lifetime bring them together once and for all?

    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.”

    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

    Steve’s mind flashes back to the USO, to visits in hospital wings that smelled like antiseptic and the rot of flesh, the empty eyes of shell-shocked soldiers whose bodies were the only part of them to make it out alive. Skin and bone and the breathing dead. There’s something gone in Bucky and Steve doesn’t even know if he sees it yet, if he’s been swallowing down alcohol and playing his own roles because it’s what he remembers, or if he really doesn’t know just how bad he’s been hit.

    And a chill slides down Steve’s spine, because this isn’t the way that he’s going to lose him.
