    Summary

    At seventeen past eight Sherlock blows through the door with a dry leaf in his hair, stripping off his gloves, the scarf, the coat, John’s gun, soft sheddings and a thud. John, on the sofa, head full, just enough of a fever to make everything seem soft and strange and not entirely unpleasant, picks up a smile through the fog.

    John’s a bit haunted.
    It’s all right.

    Summary

    Herne’s son was brought before the Hunt. Standing quietly he betrayed no emotion but Herne, knowing his son, was undeceived. In a voice masking his own pain and sorrow he explained how it would be. “You will have until noon, then the Hunt will pursue you. The law of the Hunt is thus: that the pursuit will not cease until you are brought to ground, and that the Hunt must end in death. No quarter will be given.” Herne’s eyes, which promised no mercy despite their tie of blood, met his son’s as he added, “I am honour bound to pursue this end as relentlessly as any other.”

    Summary

    John and Sherlock go to a masquerade ball in their pursuit of Sebastian Moran. John is not amused at Sherlock's choice of costume; Sherlock is not amused at John's either. Mycroft is not amused by the presence of either of them. Moran has plans he hasn't discussed with his boss and Moriarty has secrets he hasn't divulged to Moran. It's almost like a farce, except it's full of blood, horror, betrayal, terrible secrets and a Fall.

    Summary

    Five hundred years after Daenerys Targaryen retook the throne of her ancestors, the War of the Five Kings is remembered primarily as the prelude to her conquest of Westeros. What happens to living history and its main actors once they have been reduced to schoolbook trivia, obscured by the fog of ages, distilled by scrupulous scholarly analysis? Why, they live on in papers given at academic conferences, of course!

    Here, a maester in 813 AL discusses what the available knowledge on the so-called Maid of Tarth says about the Westerosi society of canon – and about her own distant-post-canon world.

    Summary

    Stiles opened his eyes, trying to remember where he was. Blinking slowly, he stretched out his whole body; yawn loud in the vast and pretty empty living room of Derek’s loft. Derek who was by the way standing few feet away, leaning against the table in front of the window.

    “I don’t remember falling asleep here”

    Summary

    Frerin fears that the newest addition to his family is not the blessing the adults around him claim she is. A song of lore convinces him that she might be a danger to them all.

    Or, to put it another way, Frerin has some big brother jealousy and Halldóra accidentally gives him a justification for it - luckily Thrór and Sigdís know where the little guy is coming from. Come on in, it's homey in here!
