    Summary

    We made more and more mistakes, and I have tried to fix them over and over again. Nothing is working. They keep on dying, or disappearing. I've died countless times trying to save everyone, and I've fought for our freedom, but it seems that this time will be the same as the others, and I will have to start over again.

    Summary

    ¿Por qué sigue viva Kate, si en teoría Peter la mató? ¿Por qué ha tardado más de un año en volver a Beacon Hills? ¿Dónde ha estado todo ese tiempo? ¿Y en qué se ha convertido exactamente?
    Pero casi más importante: ¿Por qué soñó Derek con Stiles, cuando Kate le disparó? ¿Y por qué Derek era el rey en el tablero de ajedrez de Stiles?

    Un montón de preguntas que serán resueltas, tal vez, en la próxima temporada. Hasta entonces, esta es mi teoría basada en rumores, algún comentario de Jeff Davis, y mucha pero que mucha imaginación; que probablemente no veremos en la realidad, pero que estaría bien que ocurriera…

    Summary

    Everything about him says easygoing, from the way he undoes his cuffs and tosses the cufflinks to clatter beside the candles to the way he brushes back the fringe of his hair from his forehead. It’s all subterfuge: Trust me, I’m an open book, money is no object. Nick used the same damn tricks when he played the ambassador earlier, only that was all about jive and smooth talking and this is....

    "So, who invited you to this shindig?" Pierce asks.

    Summary

    “I need to know.”

    Derek raised eyebrows as he heard Stiles murmuring softly and looked at him; Stiles brushed his hand through his already messed hair and tried to avoid his eyes.

    “What’s that?” Derek asked gently. When he thought about it, he couldn’t remember ever talking to anyone but Cora in such a soft and tender tone. Stiles was his only exception.

    Summary

    - Muszę wiedzieć.

    Derek podniósł brwi doskonale słysząc wymamrotane cicho przez Stilesa słowa. Spojrzał na chłopaka, który swoim zwyczajem przeczesał dłońmi roztrzepane włosy i starał się uciec wzrokiem od przeszywającego, uważnego spojrzenia nieco starszego od niego mężczyzny.

    - Co takiego chcesz wiedzieć? – Zapytał Derek tak łagodnie jak tylko umiał. Kiedy o tym pomyślał, nie pamiętał, aby kiedykolwiek mówił do kogoś innego niż Cora tak miękko i spokojnie. Stiles był jego jedynym wyjątkiem.

    Summary

    “I am the Empress,” she says, for once disregarding the royal we and the pronouns of grace, not because she dares to seem vulnerable in front of another sovereign, but because the treaty must be written. “You who are of equal rank may refer to me as Empress Chang.”

    The Chieftess neither prostrates herself seven time before the Empress as tradition dictates nor bows sharply at the waist with her hands clasped in the respectful gestures of the huntsmen. “I am the Fa people,” she responds with eyebrows arched and pointed ever so slightly, “and as I am they, you may call me as they do: Lan Fan.”

    Or, in which Lan Fan and May are opposing queens of opposing factions, which doesn't stop the unbidden falling in love.

    Summary

    'Queen to H5.' Q smiles, and there is a sinister twist in the curl of his lips.

    Underestimation is Q's greatest strength. No one, not even M or Tanner or Eve, suspects what Q is, how he is. He has perfected a mask, a flawless facade that he stretches over his cheekbones and tucks under his chin. No one else can see what lurks beneath, no one but Bond. It takes one to know one, he thinks. There is something very dark hidden away in brown cardigans and pale fingers and James wonders what would happen if Q ever did get kidnapped. He is certain it would not be pretty.

    -

    James slowly comes to the realisation that Q is far more deadly than anyone anticipates, and finds it far too attractive for it to be healthy.
