    Summary

    Where once there were two oblivious teenage boys, there were now two cynical and unprepared young adults. Their journey had been one of constant fluctuations, of deep and intoxicating love, of anger and passion, of home - now, flitting between Liverpool and Hamburg and the rest of the world, John and Paul must make decisions. Decisions about their band, their future, but perhaps most crucially, their own intricate complex, in all its entirety.

    An (Optional) Sequel to Come And Go With Me.

    Summary

    Sherrinford, California is a picturesque beach town, a perfect slice of Americana. It's quiet, sleepy, and that's how people like it.

    In the summer of 1961 the Holmes family sweeps into town, emigrating from England, and this perfect town will never be the same. The Holmes siblings - seventeen year-old Mycroft, sixteen year-old Sherlock, and fifteen year-old Eurus, are not your typical teens. They’re eerily smart and they can spill a stranger’s secrets just by silent observation. They’re also highly manipulative and sociopathic, Sherlock and Eurus especially, and when they want something they go after it and usually get it.

    The same holds true for when they want someone as well. For when the Holmes siblings encounter John Watson, Molly Hooper, and Jim Moriarty, they have a new mission---go after their objects of obsession---and make sure they’re theirs forever. Even if others have to get hurt.

    Summary

    After the War, invalided ex-RAF pilot Robert Sugden moved into Hadleigh Manor Gatehouse, part of his payment for agreeing to divorce his wealthy wife. It meant he could provide a discrete home for himself and Aaron Dingle, the young man billeted at the Manor who he had fallen for (and who had fallen for him). To the World, Aaron was his driver and handyman. That was the way it had to be. But to the people who knew them and cared about them the most, they knew they were together.

    This is a companion piece to my story Love on the Home Front. It will be a series of occasional one-offs to fill in some of the gaps between 1945 and the 1953 Epilogue in that story. My 1940s take on Robron is a romantic work and a million miles away from current ED.

    Chapter 42 added 28 October 2017 - "The Charmer (Part One)"
    Chapter 43 added 19 November 2017 - "The Charmer (Part Two) - Suspicious Minds"

    Summary

    In June 1952, Father Patrick Stump is involved in a scandal so great that the Diocese of Chicago has no choice but to send him away in disgrace. He finds himself in the town of Clark, Mississippi, a town not known for its tolerance of anything other than the All American Dream.

    Pete never wanted to make the move to Clark but found himself forced by lack of opportunities and the death of his father during the war. Out of work and close to out of hope, he stumbles across a card in the general store, neither he, not the writer of the card aware that what follows will alter the course of their lives irrevocably.

    But the smallest towns often have the darkest secrets...

    Dark, angsty angst-fest, my friends, with huge heaping helpings of Catholic guilt.

    Summary

    What if Septimus had been motivated to save the name and status of the Weasley family on the first of September 1932?

      "Alright, then. Sort me in whatever House you think is best."

    The Sorting Hat didn't need long to think.

    "SLYTHERIN!"

    The Great Hall was stunned into silence, only a clinking of coins being heard as Alrod handed Peter his money. The Weasleys were a Gryffindor house, everyone knew that. They’d been Gryffindor since even before Gryffindor existed. Anyone who was interested in wizarding history, anyone who put importance in purity and blood-lines, any Slytherin knew that. And yet Septimus Weasley had been sorted in Slytherin, Gryffindor’s perpetual arch-nemesis.

    Summary

    "What can I get for you?" Jimin asked, placing his hands on the countertop lazily.

    The blond in front of him smirked, "How about a date?"

    JImin rolled his eyes and scoffed, turning to the soda fountain to get the blond a cup of water. He was attractive, but the blond was the perfect epitome of the guy that your mother warns you not to date and that just makes Jimin even more attracted to the blond.
