    Summary

    1920's Egyptology AU - Athos is an archaeologist working for the British Museum, Porthos is a tomb robber/black marketeer working for Richelieu. Whilst each is well known in his field, up to now they've never met - until both set out on the trail of the long-lost tomb of Alexander the Great.

    Athos has come into possession of an ancient inscription which indicates the possible location of the tomb - Porthos must steal it from him if he's to be in with a chance of getting there first, but Athos turns out to be not quite the academic pushover he's expecting. To make matters worse, they're not the only ones on the trail of the tomb - which might rather inconveniently also have a curse on it...

    Summary

    Four Musketeers, abbey ruins in the mist, and an ill-advised shortcut...

     A cold hand brushes his cheek.

     He jerks, the intimate touch a frightening reminder of their vulnerability. The temptation to free one hand to defend himself is almost overwhelming, but his knees slip another inch, and instead he tightens his grip.

    Summary

    Darcy Lewis’ current life consists of risking her breakable, non-superpowered life and limb against weird physics crap. She still doesn't know much about quantum mechanics, but she valued her friendships by their weight in gold so she stays as Jane’s assistant. The astrophysicist was only too glad for Darcy’s ability to see through possible political ramifications of her scientific findings and Darcy was happy to stay.

    Oddly enough, Darcy’s fine with this life.

    Yet even those shenanigans were nothing compared to the power plays and political chess she was driven to read and learn—there was nothing in her life of that calibre. Though she didn’t want to admit it, she craved for something more.

    Enter one Loki of Asgard, captive of the Avengers. With his magic bound, the most harm he could do was shredding someone’s ego with his sharp tongue. Darcy is up to the challenge and he'll soon find out there's more to her than meets the eye. Behind all this, dark plans laid against the earth unfolds. Jane and Darcy hunts for the truth with the power of SCIENCE!

    Let the games begin.

    Summary

    Natsu liked to think that he had lived a relatively normal life. If he erased most of his haunting past, then yeah.

    Pretty normal.

    Until, you know, fire starts to come out of places where they shouldn't, like his hands, and then to make matters worse, he finds himself thrown into a magical war that's been brewing for eons. And to make matters ten times more worse, he's face to face with the person he's successfully managed to stop thinking about.

    So much for all that "erasing your past" crap.

    And this war? It just happens to be that he's literally the only one who can stop it. Natsu better get his shit together soon, because the fate of this crazy world - and Earth - is depending on him.

When a quest goes wrong, Nico finds that his perfect life hangs by a thread, the likes of which can only be maintained if he offers the ultimate sacrifice.

    They'd always promised they would be there for one another. Always. Except that some promises were impossible to keep.
