    Summary

    Lord Jarvis Thompson, Earl of Aitherton in the British Kingdom, has always been a bit of an eccentric.

Neither of them realises they're in too deep until it's too late.

    Summary

    Clint Barton is a single sub from the country who is unused to the attention of wealthy and well-to-do dominants. Indeed, he is quite uncomfortable with the necessity that is a season in London, but Natasha is his guardian now and therefore what she says goes.

    And, apparently, she says he has to mingle.

    Joy.

    Summary

    Sir Harold Watson requires his younger brother John to marry for money. The wealthy husband-to-be? None other than Sherlock Holmes. Before the wedding can occur, Sherlock gets swept up in an investigation of random found body parts and strange letters addressed to him via Bow Street.

    As John tags along on the investigation, getting to know his new husband, he finds himself in a London full of mad natural philosophers, rejected suitors, one overbearing brother-in-law, and more terrifying experiments than he could ever imagine.

    Definite slash, though a slow build. Taking Sherlock back in time instead of forward.

    Summary

    Stilinski didn’t look particularly interesting at first glance, if Peter was being honest. He was pleasing to look at, certainly, with a plush mouth that god so rarely saw fit to bestow upon men, but he was in dire need of a haircut, and his face had the slightly undercooked softness of a man not long out of school. Hardly the archetypal rake that would normally lead to such hushed voices.

    Summary

    "I find," said Hannibal, "that you are a most strange and wonderful creature, Mister Graham, for all you hide behind your manners and your reputation."

    "And you," Will retorted, "are the most persistent man I have ever met. Tell me, Doctor Lecter, what do you see when you look at me? Something broken to fix? Some creature to tame? Some street rat from the coast, trying to pretend he belongs in high society?"

    "Tame you?" Hannibal seemed oblivious to Will's last question, affection and pride and desire playing out behind his eyes. "Never."
