    Summary

    Derek Hale, Earl of Osterbrook, has inherited, following the death of Lord Montfort, a run down house in Yorkshire he neither needs nor wants, convinced his staff are robbing him, and with the mystery of a missing ward, he manages to get himself talked into a ridiculous bet, that he cannot pass as a steward until Midwinter, nearly two months away. So can he maintain the charade? Find the missing child? and manage to turn the shambles of a house around, or will he give up and let Peter take the thousand pounds he bet.

    now with explicit epilogue - the rest of the story is teen rated though, so if you don't like the idea of explicit sex in your bodice rippers - just don't read that bit

    Summary

    "Holmes," he sighs, and you want to take that noise and keep it forever. You want to replay it at night, when you can't touch him, when you can't bear to be away from him for a second longer.

    Summary

    A reader once commented to me that just once, she'd like to see a story address the hurtful consequences that used to come to most people who were honest about their same-sex attraction. That was a long time ago. Ever since then, I've been meaning to write a story that did that, somehow it took me until now.

    This one takes place in the fall of 1980. It takes place in Los Angeles, just before the first cases of HIV/AIDS started to turn up, and makes use of a story I once read about how right after West Hollywood first incorporated as a city in 1984, the first thing the mayor did was to walk into a restaurant there, and rip down the "No Fagots" sign that the owner had put up. ...It sort of makes use of it, references it anyway. ...And by the way, yes, I am aware of the misspelling here. It's how the word was spelled on the sign.

    Summary

    Regency Era-esque AU. Dean Winchester has built the life expected of him, marrying Charlotte Bradbury, raising a family, maintaining his estate, spending winters in ton. However, their life together is built on a shared lie - they are best friends, united to protect the secret of their true desires. Charlie has found a companion who shares her preferences, but Dean is lonely for a want of partner. That is, until he learns of Ms. Naomi's exclusive, monthly, male-only parties, and manages to secure himself an invitation...

    ABOUT THE NON-CON: there is sexual assault (non-penetrative, in fact neither party removes a single item of clothing...but it's still definitely a non-consensual sexual encounter), physical assault, emotional abuse and psychological manipulation in this story. The chapter in question is labeled, there are notes within text warning the reader where the assault is, and I provide a synopsis at the end of the chapter (and repeat it at the beginning of the next) if you wish to skip that part.

    Summary

    While on a mission storming a HYDRA facility, James Buchanan Barnes touches one of the many strange alien devices collected by the Red Skull. He does this, in fact, twice— in the past, and in the future.

    Next thing he knows, Bucky Barnes is opening his eyes in the 21st century, which is full of great gadgets and coffee, and at least includes his old pal Steve. (And, inexplicably, a different Stark.) Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier finds himself in the middle of World War Two, helping Captain America hunt down HYDRA (which is at least familiar), pretending to be Bucky Barnes (which is not), and figuring out the very noisy group of soldiers who call themselves the Howling Commandos.

    Summary

    Erik Lehnsherr is an out-and-proud gay author, columnist, and television personality (a la Dan Savage). Charles Xavier is a straight widower with two children who hosts a radio show dispensing (somewhat conservative) advice about sex and love to teenagers (a la Drew Pinsky). Their mutual attraction is undeniable, and yet, frustratingly, Charles still denies it. Erik figures with the right opportunity, Charles will act on his feelings, and when the opportunity to 'bid' on Charles to be his 'spouse' for the week comes up, Erik wins the auction.

    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.
