    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins was a desperate Hobbit.

    Well, he was several things. Short, funny, hungry, and tired for starts. Desperate was at the forefront of his mind at the moment.

    He would never be at Oakenshield Manor otherwise. Still, they needed a gardener, and as much as he didn't know about dwarves, he did know about plants.

    Bilbo expected it to be difficult. Dwarves were hardly known to be the most accepting and open of races after all. He expected the garden to be in terrible shape, the dwarves to be loud, and secretive.

    He could never have expected Thorin.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner.
    Less universally acknowledged is that a single man in possession of very little in the way of fortune may be in want of a partner as well, but John Watson had little time or energy to devote to his own wants or needs...

     

     

    Enter one Mr Holmes...

    Please note that I gleefully take great liberties with the laws governing same sex relationships and how they are seen in the Regency Era. As in, it is not an issue at all in this story. At all.

    Summary

    'It's alright, it's not exactly the time for it, is it? It's not like I can take them with me when I ship out.'

    'When we ship out,' Steve corrected, ignoring Bucky's long suffering glance.

    'Stevie,' he sighed, as they turned the corner into their street. But Steve just ignored him. They'd had this conversation enough times now, and they'd have it plenty more. He just wanted to skip it this once.

    'Have you been trying the thrift shops?'

    Bucky just rolled his eyes and huffed out a laugh, apparently as happy as Steve to gloss over their argument again. 'No, I've been trying to spend what's left of our coupons on “clothes for my sister”.'

    Summary

    Steve steps out of Erskine's machines looking almost exactly the same as when he stepped in.

    There are a lot of uses in wartime for a man who looks like a ninety-pound weakling, but who can punch his way through a door.

    (Inspired by this SteveBucky Fest prompt)

    It is like steel, the determination inside of you that tells you you will achieve this, that you will find him. Nothing will stop you. You are two sides of the same coin, you and he: he cannot escape you forever. Bucky runs. Steve follows.

    Summary

    In 1920, two years after the end of the Great War, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson investigate two disappearances, eerily similar but separated by 80 years. In the process, they make enemies (and friends) of Bloomsbury intellectuals; travel to Sussex; deal with the aftermath of John's past in the trenches; read Victorian pornography; drink copious amounts of tea; and, of course, fall in love.

    Summary

    This is the story of a detective, a doctor, two widows, two romances, and six guns.

    Written for Nefrya on the Johnlock gift exchange. The prompt was as follows: "I would like to read case fic, which is set in 30-40s. When mafia ruled, people wore hats and suits. It also would be nice to see some hurt-comfort between John and Sherlock, and neck kissing. I hope it’s not too much ;) Any rating."

    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.
