    Summary

    Palimpsest: a manuscript or piece of writing material on which the original writing has been effaced to make room for later writing but of which traces remain. Something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form.

    All human AU set at Culver University and other random places.

    After a few false starts Darcy finally found her calling. While interning with Jane Foster in the physics department at Culver, Darcy met Dr. Nick Fury, the head of the Rare Books Department at Culver University Library. One MSLS, several years, and one painful break-up later, Darcy is content working for Nick in the library, managing a cutting-edge consultation program that allows her to work closely with her friends in engineering. Things are going well, until a new manuscript shows up and things get really weird really fast. The manuscript disappears, but not before she discovers that it holds a secret - one that touches everything and everyone she holds dear. She needs to figure out what the manuscript is, what it's for, and what if anything she can do about it. She also needs to decide who, if anyone, she can trust as she she unravels the mystery - before it unravels her.

    Summary

    It was probably, Stiles thought, the first time in his entire life that he was spacing out on a conversation about Greek religion. And it wasn't because Derek was being boring. It was because Derek obviously hadn't shaved since he'd gotten to the conference and his stubble was at the perfect length to emphasize his jawline. It was because his eyes were the most unbelievable colour. It was because he had looked so serious earlier, but now his face was open and smiling.

    It might also have been just a little bit because of the beer.

    Summary

    Arthur lives with his step-sister Mal and teaches literature at university level, and Eames is a pioneer in the academic field of Dream Imagery. When Eames takes an interest in Arthur's dissertation and Arthur takes an interest in Eames, they each have opportunities which hadn't been available to them before. But Eames disappears after pushing Arthur down a new path in his research that--with assistance from fellow professor Dom Cobb--captivates him a little too fully, and when it's all said and done, Eames makes off with the credit for the research and Arthur aims to get even by using everything he's learned. And he means everything.
