    Summary

    "We're all fucked up in some way," might have been the most refreshing words any of them had ever heard. There was no need for useless platitudes here, they were all so tired of them. Tired of being walking shells filled with apologies, tired of others apologizing or averting their eyes. Tired of being thanked for murdering dozens or being the one freak that doesn't molest their children. "Like, what can you do, amirite?"

    Or

    That one story in which a transman, an autistic man, a bisexual ex-Muslim drunk, five army vets and a half dozen high schoolers take on the world.

    New tags will be added as the story progresses. Please heed them.

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes is married to crippled aristocrat Sir Victor Trevor and he has shunned the life of the flesh in favour of that of the mind.
    But what happens when he meets rugged gamekeeper John Watson, a disillusioned ex soldier with a murky past?
    Love and physical passion come up against the class divide, and there’s also a crime that Sherlock really wants to solve...

     

    Inspired by Lady Chatterley’s Lover, with a dash of murder. It's a WIP, so it's rated "explicit" for future chapters. I aim to publish a chapter a day, but life may intervene...

    NOTE 23rd May 2016: Hi guys, seeing as there isn't that much interest in this work and that it is quite a massive thing that takes up a lot of my time, I have decided to stop posting chapters daily. I will post the rest of the work once it's finished. Thanks to all of you for reading and commenting and keep an eye on it, as it will be completed. I promise. Thanks again.

    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

    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

    Just for a fun writing exercise, I asked my Tumblr followers to send me one-word prompts, for which I would write 3-ish 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

Now they have to survive life in the wilds, a half-understood hunt for a merciless killer…and each other. Immediate spoilers for “Seven for a Secret.”

    Summary

    The Herald and the Prophet. Earthlings. To make it in this new world, they will have to work together. And not die. The Prophet's convinced that everything the universe over is trying its best to prevent just that. The not dying part, that is. There's no such thing as coincidence and more than one person's doing the creeping. Keep your friends close and your sketchy, elfy mentors closer.

    At least they understand each other's jokes.

    Summary

    Light Yagami may be dead, but his shadow still hangs over humanity. When two other-worldly beings yank L and Light's souls of Mu, they issue one not-so-simple challenge: either L must convince Light to renounce Kira’s brand of justice, or Light must convince L to embrace Kira’s brand of justice. To add to this struggle are some fresh obstacles: a parallel world/AU-like reality, a new second-Kira, the looming end of the Universe, and the biggest hurdle of all -- their mutual distrust of the other.

    Both post-anime canon and AU-verse, a slow burn toward Lawlight/LxLight

    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.
