    Summary

    In the post-Trojan War Bronze Age of ancient Greek myth, an enigmatic new God with a gift for deduction is sent to put a stop to the lifesaving ways of a warrior-prince with healing hands. But suddenly Prince Iaon's moved in with the Consulting God and they've started solving crimes together. And what follows after that is... most unexpected.

    Warning! Contains: a lot of Greek wine, embedded casefic, explicit industrial-strength smut (starting around ch. 19), the birth of firearms discipline and other freeform but entirely justified anachronism, body parts (some still splendidly, if not magnificently, in use), and True Love tested to destruction… and final triumph.

    Last updated, March 3rd: Ch. 34, "Of a Day in Memphis and the Opening of Gates." To obtain the evidence that will solve a centuries-old cold case, the Consulting God and his blogger prepare to put themselves at the mercy of the two suspects in Greek mythology's most notorious mass murder...

    Summary

    WARNING: MxM (JonoXSet) Seven years does not erase the past, whether good or bad. But he doesn't have time for long abandoned memories. Unfortunately for this reluctant Priest, he will be forced back to confront everything and more importantly, everyone he left behind. Maybe there is a reason that Priests don't gamble?

    Summary

    Getting back to Rome from the villa with a gaggle of slaves, too few horses, and only a handful of belongings would be difficult in any situation, but when burdened by a soldier with a burned shoulder and a debilitating fever, the journey is a hard one. Back in Rome, however, there are not only doctors, but new obstacles: the aftershocks of Otho's suicide and Vitellius' trembling hold on the throne; a Vestal Virgin who looks to be running away from the marriage arranged for her retirement; and the unanswered question of what to do with a relationship that is suddenly a lot harder to maintain with the eyes of a city upon them.

    Summary

    In a culture consumed by battling for an eternal glory to rival the gods', one soldier's life is seemingly destroyed when taken as a war prisoner. Reiner Braun, warrior turned slave, will not bow so easily before the rulers of this savage land, not even the handsome Prince whose care he is thrust into upon his arrival at the foreign palace.

    Accompanied by Marco, Prince Bertholdt’s personal attendant; and Jean, an obnoxious, bastard child ill-fitted for his high social standing, Reiner finds himself filling an unexpected role in a tale of war, love, and freedom.

    Summary

    Although the Joestars have long since come to terms with Jonathan's death, for Dio, the end of the nineteenth century is still yesterday. The world has changed much, but people are still the same. He is still the same. And he still wants what he cannot have.

    A reimagining of the years between Dio's rediscovery and the start of Stardust Crusaders featuring wildly artistic interpretations of Jojoverse mechanics (specifically Ripple, bloodlines, Stands, vampires, immortality, and 'Heaven').

    Summary

    A collection of ficlets and snippets inspired by Tumblr and #xmentales chat.

    So far: Charles is a cat or a Renaissance-era muse or a professor or an imprisoned high-level telepath or a young man of the senatorial class in Rome or an Oceanid. Meanwhile, Erik is sick or a talented but struggling painter or a graduate student or a spy searching for his missing telepath or a former gladiator-turned-slave or a pirate. Also they are both seahorses. Or fae. Or gods. Or platypuses. Or genetically-modified fruit. Or space travelers. Or on a date. And there's one with Wesley Gibson and Brandon Sullivan. And one with Wesley again, but also Max, Simon, and Brian. And a couple of A/O snippets, one on a boat and one in a bedroom.

    Summary

    Carlos may have gone out of his league investigating houses vanishing from existence. It's clear that the true forces governing Nightvale don't want him to find out the truth, and for good reason, no one will benefit. Hood figures, the Sherrif's Secret police, and the Public Library all conspire to keep control over the citizen's knowledge, and even the radio.
