    Summary

    London, 29th December 1940, 8 pm.
    The London Blitz reached its nadir with the bombing of the City of London and the area around its most beloved landmark, St. Paul’s Cathedral.
    John Watson and Sherlock Holmes meet as the flames blaze and roar all around them.
    But who is that dark-haired young man and why is he risking his life in such a careless manner? This is what Doctor Watson is wondering, as he eventually becomes enmeshed in a mystery that will take him away from his dreary, hopeless life and plunge him into the secret life of wartime London.

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

    “But now, since the silence will not rise and surround us,
    Leaving us wondering about ourselves, looking each to the other,
    Sketching the gesture that will finish with consummation,
    We shall not know what meaning was held by that dream.”
    Memorial for 1940 – John Gould Fletcher

    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

    Куроо Тэцуро — редактор литературного журнала. Однажды Кай, который работает в историческом музее, приносит ему старый дневник и просит найти хоть какую-нибудь информацию о его владельце, жившем, по всей вероятности, в начале 20-го века. В дневнике помимо повседневных записей очень много стихов, вот только об авторе совсем ничего не известно. Кроме фамилии — Цукисима. Куроо перерывает весь интернет, центральные библиотеки, но так ничего и не находит. И каково же его удивление, когда однажды вечером он лично встречает Цукисиму.

    Summary

    An island has risen up out of the sea beside Gotham, and the Mad Hatter has kidnapped the inmates of Arkham Asylum to play with in his own, private Wonderland. As Batman tries to take the inmates to safety, he's going to be forced to make some unlikely allies, if not friends. The Mad Hatter is not himself.

    This is going to be plot heavy, but there'll be some Batjokes and maybe some Riddlebat in there; there's also going to be some Harley/Ivy, and maybe some other ships. I'll see as we go.

    Summary

    In the last days of the First World War, Dr. Watson returns from the service for which he departed in "His Last Bow," and looks for a new kind of work. He joins Dr. Arthur Hurst in his radical treatment of shell-shocked soldiers. But their work on the forefront of medical research, locked in battle against the destruction of the war, is disrupted by violent death. In addition to the obvious danger near at hand, there is the risk that this will discredit Hurst’s radical methods, and shake his confidence in his ability to cure those who so desperately need his help. Dr. Watson does the only thing he can do: he calls in Holmes. The case will require their joint expertise, and all the wisdom of their shared experience.

    Summary

    It started as joke, and got wildly out of their control.
    Tony gets an idea for an experiment in human behaviour — to set up Steve and Clint — in the name of "science," of course. They really should have taken more time to think ahead, or at least factored in their own emotions, before they got into this mess.

    Tony takes responsibility for Steve, while Bruce is (somewhat reluctantly) assigned to Barton. It soon becomes clear that their meddling is getting results, just not the kind they anticipated, as Bruce finds himself literally fighting his own repressed feelings for the archer, while Clint assumes his interest in the doctor is unrequited....

     

    Hulkeye fic with an undercurrent ripple (doesn't that sound kind of delicious?) of Stony.

    Chapters from the POV of either Bruce or Clint.

    Summary

    Yuuri Katsuki is the first young writer to achieve international celebrity status since David Foster Wallace. His debut novel, a surrealist chronicle of millennial anxiety and aimlessness, unexpectedly garners a wide audience and an astounding array of literary prizes. The glittery invitations to award ceremonies arrive in droves, as do awestruck fan letters-not that Katsuki would know, as a closet agoraphobe who has hidden himself in a remote cabin in the mountains of Saga Prefecture. One day, when a platinum-haired man from his fragmented and muddied past suddenly reappears, Yuuri is forced to confront his deep-seated fear of vulnerability.

    He had always been timid.
