    Summary

    “I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.” - Pablo Neruda

    It was enough of a shock to realize that the life she thought she had wasn't reality at all - but that was only the beginning for Halia Potter. Will she ever truly adjust to this new, twisted world of hers that operates on half-truths? And perhaps more importantly, who is the real hero in all of this? Progressively dark AU; femHPxTMR.

    Summary

    Preface & Chapter One. This is supposed to be a long story. Read the tags and forget all about canon. This is an entirely different universe in many ways and the first chapter will explain some of it. This is my first serious story with Silverflint as major characters. The explicit parts will show later on. REALLY LATE, but it's for a good reason. It wouldn't fit the story to bring them in too early.

    I'm not a Silverflint fan, really. Never was. But I know many are and I've decided to give this pairing a proper try and dedicate whatever distastrous result it will be to some of the Silverflint (and Gunnbones) fans in this awesome fandom.

    I want to point out that there will be a quite big change from the canon characters in many ways. Silver, Flint, Billy and other characters are here placed in a very different society than the Nassau we know from the series and especially Silver will have a backstory that changes his personality. His ways of manipulating his surroundings are VERY different and has very different causes than in Black Sails.

    14/5 2017: I realise I've not updated this in a while, but it's NOT cancelled. I'm just waiting for inspiration to return! *kisses*

    Summary

    A sword does not get to choose to stop being a sword, but if it's lucky, it can choose its wielder.

    Summary

    Election Night, 2012

    On the television, every channel is calling the election for Rogers/Wilson and the room around Steve erupts in cheers as people start clapping him on the shoulder and offering congratulations. Meanwhile, his eyes are glued to the screen flashing the electoral totals and his stomach drops like he's just started the descent of a steep roller coaster as he can't help thinking, what the hell did I just do?

    Summary

    The rock garden on the fifth floor of the Kantei was meant to be a place where one could sense a delicate “Japanese spirit”, according to the tourist guides. Iwai Munehisa had been Captain of Section 1 for five years and part of the general Security Police for longer, and he still couldn’t see it. As far as he was concerned, the rock garden served mostly to be a pain in his ass.

    The new Prime Minister, Kurusu Akira, liked to sit near the garden and think, hands clasped over his lap, long legs stretched close to the raked pebbles. He also liked having the rooftop open. Iwai tended to watch the sky, thinking of everything that could go wrong with drones and worse, just so that the incoming sunlight could give the goddamned rocks a pretty sparkly effect. Fuck architects.
