    Summary

    Manchester, UK.
    Sometime present day.
    Dr. John Watson has just been invalided home from Afghanistan to spend out his days pretending to be a well-adjusted member of society. Day after day, patient after patient, he continues.
    One foot after the next.
    But he can't keep doing this-
    Pretending, counting the hours til the embrace of sleep, praying for something interesting to occur.
    He must've prayed pretty hard to have met Sherlock Holmes; the nonexistent girl detective.
    She claims that she sees something in him - his desperation for adventure - and offers him a job: her translator.
    Together they solve the unsolvable, attracting the attentions of the mad man named Moriarty and develop an unlikely friendship.
    If he can remember who she is first.
    In this modernized retelling of Sherlock Holmes, explore the borders between fantasy and reality, ignorance and ignored.

    Hermione Granger knows she's not a good person. Disillusioned with life at only twelve years old; she is cynical, manipulative, ruthless and, above all else, a survivor.

    For six years she has lived on the streets of London with only her sharp mind and her sharper knives to keep her alive, but a letter from an owl changes everything for Hermione, and the bond she forms on the Hogwarts Express with a timid boy with broken glasses, skinny wrists and a lightning-shaped scar will change the whole of Wizarding Britain.

    Summary

    A mission gone wrong results in the Team getting separated on an island in the middle of nowhere. With no way of communicating with each other or the League, they need to find a way to survive. Not all of them escaped unscathed either. There is no way out, no way to return home, and no way to know if they'll all survive. Oh, and no one remembers exactly what happened either.

    Summary

    Undrentide has fallen. Rebecca Blumenthal has turned her back on her old life and embraced her new life as a vagabond priestess of Shaundakul and bad-tempered do-gooder. But, as shadows pool in Waterdeep's streets, she finds out that you can never really escape your own past - and that while she may be done with heroism, heroism isn't done with her.

    Last stop in a trilogy: Hordes of the Underdark. Earth meets Faerun. Inspired and influenced by: Stephen R. Donaldson's Mordant's Need series (and Thomas Covenant), plus two of my favorite authors who always inspire me, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Not-entirely-heroic protagonist described as "delightfully acerbic" and "a profane, temperamental gift" by reviewers. Lots of twists, sharp right turns, banter, humor, angst, and slow character development. Also... *points at the character list and winks*

    If you want to skip the first two in the trilogy, you probably can, but you'll be missing a lot of character development and backstory. If you want to get the broad strokes but are short on time, you could also just read Part I (which is a pretty quick read) and chapters 1-5 + 58-59 of Part II. Your call.

    Summary

    It is troublesome to know of the act that I am about to commit. It is troubling. Yes, very troubling. The temptation of doing something that is not right? To do something that can cause harm? Or cause peace? Or cause destruction? Can something of a little or big significance ripple the effects of others? Can an act impact the lives of one? Two? A thousand? The mind of Lucy.

    “No.”

    “Fine, you can ride in the back of the moving truck,” she said, slamming the car door and pulling away down the driveway.

    Summary

    ‘I-I’m sorry. Truly… it’s just… he pays well. And t-takes women too.'

    She already had a plan. It was a safer plan than showing her face inside the castle and risking the Hound figuring out who she was. But it was assumed an innocent person did not run and hide and lurk. What if she was more direct, not less? Look into the Hound’s eyes and figure out if he truly meant to kill her, perhaps get him to trust her slightly so he would be easier to kill. That way she could control what knowledge of her he got, instead of spending the time fearing that he already knew and at any moment he would come and kill her. Perhaps she would get a room with stone walls where barring the door made her feel safe instead of making her wonder whether any potential attacker would hack through the walls instead.

    Alyssa Hill goes to King's Landing to collect what she deems to be her inheritance.

    When Sansa says she does not want her betrothal to Joffrey broken, Tyrion starts to teach her how to be queen.

    A sort of study into Clegane family relationships. Sansa's plotline starts around Chapter 10. Sansa and SanSan fans can skip to that chapter, I suppose.

    Summary

    Takes place immediately after the the end of Season 2, but erases Flashpoint. Basically, pretend that the season ended with Barry and Iris talking on the porch. Good.

    The team doesn't know what to do with Black Siren, and perhaps calling in some re-enforcements from Star City will kickstart some revelations. Is she what she seems to be?

    The Black Siren arc that we deserve.
