    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

    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

    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

    EDITED AND POLISHED. A little project I made for my final year as an undergrad. I took the idea from T.S. Elliot's "Wasteland." It's a mix of Durarara, Hetalia, and D. Gray-Man which breaks off into three separate stories that will eventually merge into one. It'll be easy to spot out which parts are which with this poem.

    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

    “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

    She was raised to be a housewife, not a warrior: to pour tea, not spill blood; to wear a ballgown, not a Mobile Suit. But at age sixteen she climbs into the family heirloom and pilots it with a devastating skill and grace, pirouetting between asteroids and diving into the starry sky.

    Summary

    Please trust me, my dearest Sebastian, one more time.

    No human being can stand to feel too much, though many also work very hard at feeling too little.
    Sebastian Akchoté is one of those people. It's going to take more than a night call to fix that.

    Summary

    Every snowflake has a story to tell. Each one is a new world or a new universe and when it snows, each person can get a glimpse as to what those other worlds could be. Each snowfall is the chance to live a new life in a world very similar to our own, or in an alternate universe or even a different time period. Sometimes, in very rare cases, it can show people’s lives.

    This follows Sherlock and John's path, through glimpses of their lives both separate and together. This is their journey, starting at university.

    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.
