    Summary

    Though Bond returned to MI6 after his ill advised jaunt around the globe with Madeleine Swann, Q still struggles with his own feelings for the agent in spite of the fact that Bond is clearly not the same man as the one who walked away from their friendship on Westminster Bridge.

    James regrets having left London and MI6, but it is nothing in comparison to the remorse he feels for abandoning Q. However, James has made repairing their friendship his primary goal in the hope of gaining something he never realised he needed as badly as he does.

    But Bond really hasn’t had a good time of it lately. Breaking his leg in a freak accident, James camps out at Q’s flat when the white-washed, soulless walls of Medical become too much for him to tolerate. Unfortunately, his leg is only the beginning of Bond’s health problems, and Q is conscripted into being James’ caretaker.

    Confined to the close quarters of Q’s flat, the Quartermaster finds himself opening back up to the agent, but will the two men find their way to one another as they should have done years ago, or is time no longer on their side?

    Summary

    Just for a fun writing exercise, I asked my Tumblr followers to send me one-word prompts, for which I would write a few paragraphs of Klaine. Genres are all over the place (which is why the tags are such a mess), sparking from whatever pops into my head when I see the prompt. It's canon, it's AU, it's fluff, it's angst, it's sex, it's sweetness... it's "Word Association Time with Skivvy!" Here are the results!

    Summary

    Time: January, 1831

    Place: Shoreditch, London

    Something suspicious is happening at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital: corpses are brought in and sold to the surgeons, but Sherlock Holmes suspects foul play.
    He’s not alone: at Guy’s Hospital, Doctor John Watson refuses to pay twelve guineas for a body that he fears has been tampered with.
    The lives of the two men collide one frosty winter night and from that moment on, they will never be torn asunder.

    A macabre AU story of grisly murders, passion, sex and mystery, with an unambiguous happy ending; inspired by the London Burkers crimes, by several short stories written around that period and by the book The Vampyre Family by Andrew McConnell Stott. Also, a very big help was the Italian Boy by Sarah Wise, which chronicles grave robberies in 1830's London.

    The characters belong to ACD and the BBC. The story is mine, so please do not post anywhere else without express permission.

    This is a WIP, but I always complete my stories. I aim to publish a chapter every other day, unless life intervenes.

    Summary

    ”I waited so long for you to come around, you know.” Hannibal says one night when they're having dinner together. ”Patiently awaiting your becoming.”

    ”It feels like home.” Will says in reply, a smile tugging at the corners of his mouth. ”Like I've been wandering aimlessly these past few years, feeling my way through the dark. Maybe even my whole life.”
     

    As Will and Hannibal are through recovering from the wounds they acquired killing The Dragon, they are ready to move on and build a new life together. Taking on false identities, they move to the south of France to fulfill the wordless vow they made to each other the night they killed Dolarhyde.

    Summary

    It was a game, Aizen told himself, to see if could pull the boy into his sphere of influence, and more importantly into his bed. Then cast him aside when he got bored. But the reality was very different, and he was just deluding himself.

    Eventual smut. Lolita references throughout. Some Phantom of the Opera references. Some lighthearted silliness fuelled by caffeine and late night writing sessions.

    Summary

    This is a reboot to my reimagining of the Total Drama series, one which is reworked to feel more like the real show than the previous one, while still being my own personal spin to it! Unlike the original story, which featured changes to character families and stuck with the original cast until Season 3, this reboot/redux changes the cast from Season 1, using characters from all seasons mixed into one! Including Ridonculous Race. There is also a third host(ess) alongside Chris and Chef to add to the fun of it all. There are still 22 campers, 1 $100,00 grand prize, and only 1 winner. Who will win? Who will lose? Read to find out!

    There will also be both canon ships and crack ships galore in this!

    While this isn't canon to my original redo story, that one is written off in the first episode as technically existing but technically not at the same time. Once more, you will need to read to find out.

    Note: I control the elimination up to the Finale, at which point it's up to you guys, the readers, to comment/message who you want to win in the end! The other fanfic didn't have this largely due to already being finished at the time of posting.

    New Chapters will always be posted on Wednesdays.

    Summary

    Bertie Wooster, a gallant young man about town, is gently blackmailed by one of his school friends into taking a run-down apartment in a most unseemly neighborhood of London.

    What he and Jeeves find there will leave them both irrevocably changed.

    (This is my first real attempt at writing as Bertie, un-beta'd and un-Brit-picked. Hope that it holds up, despite.)

    Summary

    His eyes wander around the sunny lawn and linger on a group of girls lounging on a blanket, surrounded by textbooks. One of them is lying on her back, her brown hair spilling over the hideous tartan pattern. She’s reading aloud in a dramatic voice from some kind of play, desperately trying – and failing – to keep a straight face.
    It’s quite possibly the cutest thing he’s seen in at least a week.
    “And that, my friend,” the dry voice of Jonathan Kay says into his ear, “is the exact wrong direction to be staring into. The girl reading The Merchant of Venice for fun? That’s Jyn Erso. Her father’s said to be in line for the Nobel prize in physics, she’s a straight-A student, top of Bodhi’s martial art class, and quite frankly a harpy.” Kay sighs and picks up his bag. “Basically, she manages to be both Stratford sisters at once.”
