    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 pioneering 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 unusual methods. 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.

    This fic includes lots of emotional conversations, history, architecture, parlor music, and literary allusions. It is appearing in fortnightly installments (every other Sunday), and should be published in its entirety by February 2018.

    Summary

    Shin Soukoku Week, Day 2: "Ah, what is the life of a human being - a drop of dew, a flash of lightning?" - Akutagawa Ryuunosuke

    Atsushi has seen Akutagawa hurt many times, has seen him coughing up blood, seen it dripping from his skin, at one point even watched him stitch up his own wounds without so much as a flinch. They have both gotten injured, at times severely; they have dragged each other off the battlefield and back to base.
    Atsushi knew. He is not so naive as to be unaware.
    He’s seen Akutagawa roar his attacks, hitting back twice as hard after he’s been hurt. He’s seen him curse and rage.
    Atsushi has never seen him be so still.

    Summary

    "I think I understand now. It’s like being radioactive. We’re so brilliant that we glow- like the aurora borealis. Like stars. But slowly, at that very moment that it all becomes too late, people realise just how volatile and dangerous we really are. We’ll only ever destroy the things in our vicinity."

     

    It all begins innocently enough. And then James Tiberius Kirk had to go and make the colossal mistake of befriending- then falling for- a brilliant security specialist with eyes like ice and ties to Christopher Pike. Matters only become more complicated from that point onwards: after all, the galaxy is a vast and dangerous place, and we all have our secrets to keep- even if we don't know it yet.

    [Now with cover art.]

    Summary

    Within the mirrored hallways, upon the chequered floors and amidst the Rococo furniture of his pleasure-palace, Baron Kurt von Kolb teaches his 17-year-old fiancée, Lady Ursula, everything she must know about the perversions of a true aristocrat.

    She'd thought she'd feel a princess the day he finally took her to his castle, but instead of the sumptuous dinner she'd been expecting, he had but led her to a marble bathroom and presented her with razor and enema syringe instead. So that her sex would be bare for his pleasure, he'd said; so that he would be able to see and touch and taste everything, he'd said; so that she would be clean for him tonight when he'd take her more deeply, more completely, more thoroughly than she'd ever been taken before, he'd said.

    ***

    He runs the spur of his jackboot up her breastbone, dipping it into the hollow of her throat.

    "Good girl," he purrs, smirking through his monocle. "You did not flinch once."

    "Thank you, sir," she says, squeezing her shivering hands into fists, proud of her self-control.

    For now, she rests in a state of complete nakedness at his feet, he towering over her in his uniform as she lies there upon his drawing room floor.
