    Summary

    This is a reboot to my reimagining of the Total Drama series, one which is reworked to feel more like the real show than the previous one, while still being my own personal spin to it! Unlike the original story, which featured changes to character families and stuck with the original cast until Season 3, this reboot/redux changes the cast from Season 1, using characters from all seasons mixed into one! Including Ridonculous Race. There is also a third host(ess) alongside Chris and Chef to add to the fun of it all. There are still 22 campers, 1 $100,00 grand prize, and only 1 winner. Who will win? Who will lose? Read to find out!

    There will also be both canon ships and crack ships galore in this!

    While this isn't canon to my original redo story, that one is written off in the first episode as technically existing but technically not at the same time. Once more, you will need to read to find out.

    Note: I control the elimination up to the Finale, at which point it's up to you guys, the readers, to comment/message who you want to win in the end! The other fanfic didn't have this largely due to already being finished at the time of posting.

    New Chapters will always be posted on Wednesdays.

    Summary

    A bunch of random one-shots I decided to cobble together. I have a skit organizer and ideas are welcomed.
    Hopefully, you enjoy what you read because these are written on the spot without much planning.
    Props to anyone who finds the various references peppered here and there. (Some are obvious while others a bit harder.)

    Summary

    Though Bond returned to MI6 after his ill advised jaunt around the globe with Madeleine Swann, Q still struggles with his own feelings for the agent in spite of the fact that Bond is clearly not the same man as the one who walked away from their friendship on Westminster Bridge.

    James regrets having left London and MI6, but it is nothing in comparison to the remorse he feels for abandoning Q. However, James has made repairing their friendship his primary goal in the hope of gaining something he never realised he needed as badly as he does.

    But Bond really hasn’t had a good time of it lately. Breaking his leg in a freak accident, James camps out at Q’s flat when the white-washed, soulless walls of Medical become too much for him to tolerate. Unfortunately, his leg is only the beginning of Bond’s health problems, and Q is conscripted into being James’ caretaker.

    Confined to the close quarters of Q’s flat, the Quartermaster finds himself opening back up to the agent, but will the two men find their way to one another as they should have done years ago, or is time no longer on their side?

    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

    Yuuri Katsuki would describe himself as a dime-a-dozen poet with a degree in comparative literature from Todai and only a couple of publications due to luck. By some miracle, he’d received an Asian Culture Council grant and a Bright scholarship to help him pursue MFA Creative Writing in America. He’d been so excited because he would be in the same country as his literary hero, V. Nikiforov, writer of countless, innovative poems.

    Summary

    When an ex-army sniper awakens in a vault 200 years later to find the world in ruin, he'll stop at nothing to save what's left of his past life. The qualms of post-apocalyptic dangers, crooked politics and morality won't stand a chance against Cullen Archland's search for his missing infant son. Knowing he can't do it alone, he reluctantly accepts the help of an intrepid reporter with aligned interests. Together, he and Piper Wright will hunt for answers, and soon find themselves between great powers in the middle of a conflict much larger than themselves, but their problems don't end there. Will constant exposure to the worst of the wasteland push the pair over the edge, or can they find solace in each other?

    Summary

    Time: January, 1831
    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.

    Note 27 Feb: I have re-posted the work with minor corrections to some of the chapters. If you have read it already, the more serious revisions start from chapter 19.

    Note 17 March: This work is now complete.

    Summary

    Своеобразное продолжение или даже послесловие к "Отстрелу экзотических птиц". Много повторенных мотивов, отсылок и вольных цитат из "Отстрела". А еще много отсылок к реальным фактам из жизни Патсаласа и жизни Бруна и к балетам Патсаласа. Но много и фантазии, так что, как и "Отстрел экзотических птиц" - это не серьезный исторический текст, а fiction.
    Ну и еще тут много литературных цитат, из Бродского больше всего.
