    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Second World War, Erik Lehnsherr -- survivor of Dachau, former resistance fighter in Occupied Europe -- joins forces with US intelligence to hunt down escaped Nazis. A sensitive mission in Rio de Janeiro calls for Erik to recruit a new operative ... one nobody is sure whether to trust. Charles Xavier is the stepson of convicted Nazi spy Kurt Marko, a rapidly worsening drunkard and a homosexual who hardly even bothers to hide his predilections. Hardly ideal.

    But Charles is the only person with any chance of getting close to Sebastian Shaw. The one man who might allow them to complete the mission.

    And although Erik's business is keeping secrets, Charles brings something out in him that he's worked desperately to hide --

    (Pastiche with Alfred Hitchcock's "Notorious." And now dedicated to the memory of the awesome Clawfoot Tub.)

    Summary

    Written for the following prompt: Erik dies, or finds a reversey-time mutant, or a magical time travelling device, and wakes up in the past. This time, though, it's before he ever met Charles - in fact, it's before his mother died.

     

    He can save his mother that one time (thanks to his mastery over powers carrying back), but what does Erik do after that? Does he stick around, or escape and run to find Charles again (and hope everything doesn't go wrong)?

     

    Sort of a bookend to my story "Undone," though they are totally independent stories.

    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

    In Ancient Rome, Centurion John is hired to act as personal, round-the-clock bodyguard for the mad emperor's hedonistic, philosopher brother (that would be Sherlock). Sparks fly, John peers through a partly-open door, arrows fly, and Sherlock learns the very apt name given to John's 22-inch sword.

    No, his *actual* sword. He's a Roman solider, remember. What you were thinking would be. . .just, no.
