    Summary

    “Hannibal, we should never have come here.”

    Will shifted uncomfortably, glancing up at the hotel’s front desk and shoving his hands deeper into his pockets. He twisted awkwardly to look over his left shoulder, scanning the densely packed parking lot and the bustling lobby with apprehension.

    ***

    Hannibal thinks it's time for a nice vacation. Will thinks they should have stayed home. Will is, as usual, completely right.

    Summary

    expanded, fleshed out S3 plot: The Queen of Thieves, Eleanor Guthrie finds herself convicted of piracy on the high seas by the Martial Court in London. Her father is dead, murdered by her former lover Charles Vane. Driven by hatred, she grabs her chance to take him down. Her voyage to Nassau though is the source of a sea-change within, until love becomes her motivation. POVs: Eleanor's, Rogers more and more, occasionally Max's.

    Spoiler alert: S3, refers canon S1-S2 plot.

    Fan warning: Fans of Vane-Eleanor or Max-Eleanor may not like this fanfic. S3 Eleanor looks at both very differently than before and it reveals how Eleanor actually felt about either in S1 and S2. Vane has no voice in this fanfic to defend his character against her hatred for him. Please do not confuse Eleanor's judgement of Vane with my own. I like him.

    Summary

    " 'Damn the Dursleys’ was Harry’s first thought as he rounded the corner at a sprint. ‘And damn butter and eggs to the furthest recesses of hell.’
    See he should’ve known from the minute he woke up drenched in sweat and crying that his day would go badly. Harry could only recall the familiar dark eyes and swirls of tangible, scratchy magic that had plagued his dream, but the rest was lost to him. Slipped through his fingers like silt as he awoke."

    Harry is having a pretty shitty morning already, but when a strange man attacks him and sends him hurtling through time to the summer of 1943 Harry learns that an insane Dark Lord and Death Eaters are the least of his worries. Harry must learn to navigate the Hogwarts of 1943, and avoid the attentions of a still sane Tom Riddle. A Tom Riddle who is still building his future empire and will ruthlessly root out any threat and destroy it. Or them.

    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

    Alec Lightwood is lonely. And that's okay. He'd never had many friends, and he'd barely had a proper relationship before. Besides, there was no time for any of that. He had college, and his siblings to look after...Being lonely suits him.

    Or at least that's what he thinks. Until he meets Mr Magnus Bane.

    Summary

    i am but a shell that has been hollowed out
    time after time.
    a body shaped by blows
    and a mind by rasping words.

    sweetness comes with blood
    and the taste in my mouth is the only
    soft thing
    i've come to savor.

    there's this reassuring certainty
    that the cycle won't be broken,
    that the figures i look up to
    won't forget to put me down
    and hit

    you've added your fair share in the puzzle
    acting as organs
    strengthening my frame

    new colors on the bruise canvas;
    cool fingers
    against
    burning thoughts

    you did your job
    what was asked of you;
    and it came with a fondness in my heart
    that follows the path i've always known

    _____

    Where a Lorenzaccio AU would've been perfect but I don't have the time to adapt a 19th century play.

    Summary

    It's been nearly a year. Really, things should stop piling up. If they could stop doing that, you know, that would be great. But it's her life; when do things ever not implode?

    [In which Darcy Lewis meets assassins, attempts to bake and fails, has the rug ripped out from under her feet, gets a new nickname, argues a lot, questions everything, snags a new toy, and starts wondering if she ought to look into a quiet life in Milwaukee. Though, you know. She'd probably be bored.]

    [A sequel to The Price of War. Heavy spoilers for both The Price of War and for season two of Daredevil. Darcy POV, some alternating. Season 2 Rewrite.]

    Summary

    Will finds himself in Florence a year after "that night" on the trail of Hannibal. Still recovering from the psychological and emotional fall out, he seeks another, yes, psychiatrist to keep him stable. Unknown to Will, Hannibal and Bedelia have settled in Florence, too. Unknown to Hannibal, Will is in Florence with his new psychiatrist. Doctor Daniel Clayton has some empathic gifts of his own and it will be his misfortune that he bears a striking resemblance to Will. Each of them has an agenda and while Daniel and Will engage in therapy one chance encounter places them in a deadly game between Hannibal and Bedelia. But sometimes things are not always as they appear.

    A viper will devour another viper. But a mongoose can be trained to temper its bite.
    Whatever you are doing with Will Graham; stop.

    This story is updated regularly like a serial. If Fate should gather the shattered teacup and bring Hannibal and Will together again after Mizumono, then this fic should be most appealing.

    Summary

    After a decade of living in the South, Jeon Jungkook unwillingly returns to his damp hometown where rain is perpetual and sunshine is a gift. Jung Hoseok's bones shift and reposition underneath his thick skin, and Kim Namjoon drinks from the throats of unsuspecting deer.

    "Do you see how big the trees are? There's no way they managed to grow that tall in only a few decades," Hoseok shoots Jungkook a playful look.

    "Are you trying to tell me that, perhaps, we are living in a town still infested with vampires and wolves?" Jungkook asks doubtfully, "Because I don't believe you."
