    Summary

    It's unheard of, what they have. Daring—forbidden, even.
    Designer button-up discarded, slicked-back hair mussed, it's only them and the backseat of whosever's car they're in that night.

    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 the year 96 AD, all Rome is aware that their gods have begun to Mark certain people with their gifts -- the healing power of Apollo, the metal control of Vulcan, the deathly touch of Pluto, or the mental powers of Minerva. When those gifts fall to slaves or barbarians instead of the Romans themselves, strict control is necessary.

    Then a gladiator from Judea meets an enslaved scribe from Britannia, and the repercussions will shake the Empire itself.

    Summary

    This is part one of a Hannibal Ancient Rome alternate universe series called "Il Doctore." The majority of the story takes place in 75 B.C.E., near the city of Rome. Will is a wealthy senator's son. He sees a gladiator fighting in the arena, who they call "Hannibal the Cannibal" and he becomes enamored. Hannibal is a slave in this alternate universe, but he is still crafty and manipulative, so he pulls whatever strings he can to get what he wants. Spartacus is only mentioned in passing in this volume, but the story takes place in the Spartacus series' universe.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers: soldier, artist, foodie, friend, heart of the Avengers, and a guy whose past keeps creeping into his present and dictating his future. A series of stories about him and the people he has chosen to build his life around.

    A comics-MCU mashup that is MCU-compliant through all of the Phase One movies then gets a little Brubakerish because the alternative was to get a lot Jossed.

    All stories can be read independently of the others. You'll miss a few references but lose nothing of the plots.
