    Summary

    The relative harmony of Zootopia is still millennia away. The bronze age is a time of constant conflict, not only between species, but within them. In this age of xenophobia, perhaps bridges could still be built between rabbits and foxes. Or at least between one specific rabbit, and one specific fox.

    Summary

    A re-imagining of the goddess Athena from the perspective of archaeology and anthropology. Taking the assumption that gods were inspired by people in the past, the crafting of the goddess's persona is based on her extraordinary life. Set in the context of the Early Bronze Age Mediterranean, we follow Athena as she recounts her experiences and deeds.

    Summary

    He didn’t realize Cap’s eyes were blazing red until Cap twirled him against the wall, pressing a kiss to the helmet’s mouth.

    “Cap!” He tried, grabbing at Cap’s arms to push himself free. Cap simply took hold of his wrists--gauntlets be damned--and pinned his arms to the wall.

    “Please,” Cap said. “I don’t want to hurt you.”

    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, May 14: Ch. 35, "Of an Overnight Stay and a House Incorrectly Named." In the lavish home of the prime suspects in the ancient world's most notorious serial murders, the Consulting God and Iaon stake everything on an undercover operation that will either reveal the hidden evidence they seek, or expose them both to danger deadlier than anything they've faced before....

    Summary

    “Your friend has gone south,” Piotr said to Charles, one day. The tree where the jaybird sat was empty, leaves lost under the snow.

    “He was only visiting,” Charles said. “His lady is in the forest.”

    At night, the wind whistled around workshop, and Erik wondered if Charles missed the conversation the bird gave him.

    “Don’t be ridiculous,” Charles said, and then, “sorry. It’s very quiet here.”

    Summary

    We are not monsters, we're moral people
    And yet we have the strength to do this
    This is the splendor of our achievement
    Call in the air strike with a poison kiss

    Priests and cannibals, prehistoric animals
    Everybody's happy as the dead come home
    Big black nemesis, parthenogenesis
    No one move a muscle as the dead come home
    --"Nemesis," Shriekback

    Summary

    It had been over six months since Kronos had tasted him, and Methos was not ready to allow Kronos back into his tent. It was his form of silent punishment for the Cassandra incident. She had been his to deal with, and Kronos had interfered. For that, Methos had kept up a steady stream of women and men nightly in his tent, the understanding that when Methos was ready, Kronos would be allowed back in.

    Summary

    A seasonal interlude in the continuing story Till We Have Cases, a tale of the ancient Greek world's only Consulting God, and of the Healer- and Warrior-Prince who's his blogger, faithful companion, and (more than) colleague.

    Snow's falling on Mount Olympus. It's the Kronia festival, time of communal overeating and overdrinking, of license and upended roles... and in the House of the Two Hundred Twenty-One Bees, everything's unusually crazy.

    See -- the Consulting God actually doing housework in the kitchen!
    See -- his trusty Healer-Prince, topless! (By frequent popular request.)
    See -- the staff of the House getting seriously out of hand!

    Warnings for evergreens, pagan ritual, Mortals Cooking Brilliantly, Gods wishing they'd never had this theoretically brilliant idea of getting Seriously Seasonal, snogging in front of the fire, Ovid getting rewritten (so what else is new?), and seasonal good cheer (with many wishes for the same for you.)

    This story takes place around ch. 23 of Till We Have Cases.

    Summary

    The giant squid spewing sex pollen wasn't the strangest part of anyone's week. Captain America's behaviour after the fact, however, was making Tony wonder how deeply they were all affected, and what exactly was going on.

    Summary

    An 800x600 cover image for those who'll be reading Till We Have Cases as an ebook. Original image is stored at Box.net: see below the image for the link. (A 900x600 copy is here if you need it.)

    The story: In the time of legend, a dangerous young god with a gift for deduction is sent to put a stop to the lifesaving ways of a warrior-prince with healing hands. But then all of a sudden the Prince has moved in with the Consulting God and they've started solving crimes together. And what follows after that is... most unexpected.

    Warning! Contains: quite 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, invisible hand(maiden)s, body parts (some still splendidly, if not magnificently, in use), and True Love tested to destruction… and final triumph.
