    Summary

    Just a modern AU where these two emotionally constipated guys from completely opposite sides of the tracks just so happen to discover how well their demons play together.

    Or,

    My attempt to do this awesome prompt some justice: A Thomas-lives!AU wherein, during the course of their relationship, James starts showing more Flint-like tendencies (brutality, anger, willingness to commit ruthless atrocities in pursuit of his goals, dark thoughts, etc) and it causes a rift between him and Thomas. He then meets Silver who totally embraces that side of him. His relationship with Thomas crumbles as his relationship with Silver develops.

    Summary

    When Simon has to transfer to another school - the DuMort Academy -, the only thing that could save him from going mad would be to join the school's Glee club. Of course, life is not as easy as it could be, and he is denied to join just yet. He somehow manages to persuade the club's leader, Raphael, to prepare him so he can join in the next semester.

    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

    Sherlock may claim he's a sociopath unfettered by human relationships – but that’s an awful lot of flowers he’s got lining his hospital room. Where do they come from? And what do they say about the people who gifted them?

    A series of introspective vignettes in which flowers reveal what Sherlock means to his friends – and perhaps what Sherlock's friends mean to him.

    Summary

    At this point, more than 100 posts in, I do think it only fair to rewrite this intro. This is a whopping big heap of meta posts, dealing primarily with *Sherlock*, though heaven knows a lot of other literature and art wanders through. The writing quality and style varies from fairly good pseudo-academic to outright fangirl squee. If it's worth reading at all, it's worth reading because it's fun watching someone who really does care how art works go hunting for the engines that drive the show, and to guess at the hidden and not-so-hidden details that may shape the future of the show.

    Original intro below:

    Of all these little meta digressions, this is more truly an essay and piece of lit-crit. I had a chunk of last night and this morning to think about the structure and nature of how a story is told, and what your perception of the story does to your choices of through-lines. This is a lit-crit essay focusing on *Sherlock*, and using Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie as paradigmatic examples of two different approaches to the development of narrative spines and through-lines. Meta. Essay. Lit-crit. Analysis. Dry. Somewhat academic. Consider yourselves thoroughly warned. My inner honor student shineth forth.

    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

    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

    ”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

    He finds it hard to ponder-why and what, in this situation, are so closely associated with one another that it’s hard to differentiate the two.

    Why is life; what is life.

    He doesn’t know the answer to either of them, and it’s frustrating beyond belief.

    Summary

    A hopeful story with eventual canon divergence that explores the relationship between Solas and Sene Lavellen, as well the deeper, more troubling aspects of Solas’s past and the fall of the Arlathan. Desperately in love and striving for manhood, Solas finds himself redeemed early on. His struggle now lies in striking a balance between the difficulties of the past and the good fortune of a present in which he is surrounded by friends and comrades who love him in earnest. The son of a healer and an architect, Solas longs to build a life in this world, to carve out his place as a man, a lover, a partner, and a friend.

    This is, at its core, a character study for both Solas and Sene. It is also an acknowledgment that fully-formed relationships, no matter how you define them, are never simple and must be continuously earned, especially when the stakes are high and the landscape is war.
     
    Latest Update (1/18): Chapter 36: Hey, Morrigan. Spin me a tale. - A fly in the ointment. A whisper in the shadows. Back to the Emprise du Lion where there’s a hole in the world. Let Morrigan fix it with her knitting. Or, at least let her try.

    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

    Новый государь не должен быть легковерен, мнителен и скор на расправу. Во всех своих действиях он должен быть сдержан, осмотрителен и милостив. Так, чтобы излишняя доверчивость не обернулась неосторожностью, а излишняя недоверчивость не озлобила подданных (с) Н. Макиавелли.
