    Bookmarker's Notes

    Once upon a time…

    No

    Not yesterday, not yesterday, but long ago a thing occurred…

    Again no, not quite.

    Behind seven lands and seas, there lived…

    No, still not right.

    There’s as many ways of starting a tale as there are tales to be told. It’s easier, when you aren’t part of it though. When you can in all conscience place the story long ago and far away, a safe and comfortable distance from your audience. When the characters are heroes, and knights, and monsters and dragons and immortal because of it. The traditional beginnings, they all mean long ago and far away, and while they may hold lessons for the listener, they are always twisted up in metaphor and subtext.

    Ben was a reporter though, and so his stories were always here and now, in a place you know, with people just like you, and horrors half a step away from your own front door. For that the comfort of the traditional openings will not serve, cannot serve, because his duty as a reporter is to strip away comfort, strip away lies. To tell the truth laid bare, inescapable, so that like it or no, people cannot help but listen.

    So

    Here and now, in the places you do not look, in between the cracks of everyday life, dark things are moving. Today, and yesterday, and most likely tomorrow, the old magics are stirring and the story has a power all its own.

    Close enough. Above all else Ben is a storyteller, to him, the magic in the world is self evident. Self evident, and beautiful in the way of a forest fire, or a lightning bolt.

    Lies are a mercy, but there are consequences to mercy, sometimes those consequences are more brutal than a quick end ever could be.

    “Maybe it makes us both villains,” it’s a sad thought, without heart and without soul, “maybe there are no heroes.”

    Summary

    He couldn’t believe he’d be unlucky enough to get caught by a witch. He’d heard all the stories, of people disappearing because witches decided to kidnap them, of people outwitting witch curses, of the International Witch Hunter Association trying in vain for years and years to catch all of them. It’s been happening since centuries ago and it still happened now, even if not as much. Iwaizumi just never thought it would happen to boring, simple him.

    Or

    That one fic where Iwaizumi Hajime is an unwilling cat and Oikawa Tooru is his owner

    Summary

    After Waterloo, through a cunning lawyer and some finagling, Bonaparte manages to end up in England instead of St Helena for his final exile.

    Of course things don't stay quiet. There's an old murder. A stodgy Duke newly returned from France. A disintegrating marriage. And a couple of ghosts to top it all off.

    (and full of pretentious chapter titles and what not)

    Summary

    When faced with new information, Stiles believed in finding out everything he could about it, and the knowledge of his own unimportance was no different. He started by observing, counting the number of people he spoke to each day and whether they met his eyes. With the baseline established, he then began changing variables: self-initiated versus Stiles-initiated, context-based or spontaneous, functional versus social, obligatory politeness versus meaningful interaction.

    No one noticed the change in him as he parsed out the categories and wrote out the statistics that proved John Donne wrong. His bones were lighter, hollowing out from the inside until he felt brittle and breakable but weightless enough to fly.

    Summary

    In which Iwaizumi Hajime grows a few chili plants, participates in an eating contest, breaks into a park, and falls in love with a man who doesn't ever sleep - not exactly in that order.

    5 Reasons Why Iwaizumi Hajime's Flatmate Is A Complete Weirdo (An Incomplete List)
    1. He's obsessed with that stupid bucket list of his.
    2. He's the proud owner of seven truly ugly, criminally hideous movie posters with aliens on them, which he insists on pasting all over the damn living room.
    3. He's always stealing Hajime's sweatshirts.
    4. Sometimes, he wakes Hajime up for breakfast. At 5AM. On Saturday mornings.
    5. He literally never, ever sleeps.

    Summary

    AU in which every time a person falls in love, a red line like a tally mark appears on their wrist. Sherlock is determined to keep himself from ever gaining one of these marks for fear that love will corrode his mental faculties. Then he meets John Watson.

    **A screen shot someone took of my summary became a huge post on tumblr that didn't credit me for the idea. Please read the final chapter, chapter 4, for information regarding this.**

    Summary

    "The other kids think that Jimin is strange. And he is, to be fair. Sometimes Jimin talks to people that aren’t there. Sometimes he starts crying, randomly, and then a moment later the wailing siren of an ambulance or police car can be heard outside. Sometimes he just shuts down and won’t talk to anyone."

    Jimin and Taehyung are basically professionals. When they're called in to deal with a werewolf terrorizing a small town, they know the deal.

    Things are rarely as they seem.

    Summary

    “What…” Hajime trails off and gestures to the small package in resting Oikawa’s open palms. It’s seven am on a Sunday and far too early to be dealing with whatever his neighbour is blabbering on about. “What is this?”

    “It’s a cactus, Iwa-chan,” Oikawa says cheerfully, apparently oblivious to the murderous intent radiating off Hajime because where the hell did Iwa-chan come from? “For you.”

    Summary

    “Alright, alright. No need to bite,” Harry says, holding his hands above his head in a general gesture of surrender.

    Louis quirks an eyebrow and his foot nudges Harry’s as he moves to sit straight. “If that’s what you think biting is, you’ve got another thing coming, Styles.”

    Harry blinks at him before he feels his face flush and inside the marrows of his bones there’s pulses of heat, pulses of fire spreading through him. “Is that a threat, your Highness?”

    “That’s a promise,” Louis answers just as the car halts to a stop. “One I intend to keep.”

    Harry is a journalist with a lot of secrets and Louis is the future king of the United Kingdom; they live together for 60 days.
