    Summary

    It’s just that now, there is a connection where there was no connection before, a space between them that’s filled with each other, blending and merging until the dividing line between ‘Travis’ and ‘Wes’ is completely blurred.

    Summary

    “Did you know, my Lord,” the Scout persists, “that Alice’s Wonderland was not penned to represent some alternative fantasy realm? Rather, it is what a certain, close-minded Reverend assumed our world would devolve into should educated men—such as yourself— accept a reality of unreal mathematical concepts. But here, good Sir, is the rub: those abstract formulas have since become verified facts, and life as we know it has not gone topsy-turvy. Do you know what this means?” Earl prompts his teatime companion, willowed fingers flurrying like rosemary in a breeze.

    And yes. Said companion does. In the wake of candied corpses and circadian whispers, gristly murders and glimpsed monsters, a stack of mysterious calling cards and a Marquis with eyes like opals, Carlos knows exactly what this means.

    “It means we have been in Wonderland all along, and I’ve been none the wiser.”

    [Sequel to “Butterfly Weed”]

    Summary

    Ages from now, in a moment that is still numerous cases, several broken bones and countless memorable instants of breathless ecstasy away, local children will run through a garden overgrown with vegetation, flora running wild and untamed around skeletons of old beehives. But that is ages from now, in a moment that is still numerous blog posts, several broken tea cups and countless unusual love letters (read: intriguing corpses and breakfasts without bio-hazardous bits in them) away. So, let’s go back to now – there is a world being born, a world whose birth one wouldn’t want to miss.
    [...]
    It’s a new world, one that will be harder to destroy. Not because it is indestructible, nor because there won’t be challenges – oh, there will be (John wouldn’t have it any other way) – but because this time John knows, as does Sherlock, that, if handled with care, they allow each other to thrive.
    They aren’t each other’s doom. They are each other’s greenhouse effect.

    Summary

    Jean had almost turned to walk home when he saw him.

    The new kid.

    Standing alone at the empty bus stop.

    Now that he wasn't occupied with playground shenanigans, Jean could actually get a good look at the kid.
    He was shorter than him, with a dark mop of hair that covered his ears trimmed short underneath. His freckles seemed even more plentiful and dark up close, and he had a band-aid clinging to one of his knock-knees.

    Jean wasn’t going to talk to him.

    Really, he wasn’t.
    ....

    "A childhood friendship that grows and evolves into something more is one of the most beautiful, fragile, and painful things to watch, and I wouldn't miss a second of it."

    Summary

    Jim Kirk cut out his heart and placed it in a box on a shelf where no one could touch it. Until he meets Leonard McCoy.

     

    “Keep my heart?” He says, cradling the organ in blood sticky fingers.

    Len looks up, and smiles. “Keep your heart,” He says, and closes fingers over Jims hands, pulling Jim close to press a kiss to his cheek. “And let me have all of you,”

    Jim cuts his heart out of his box and places it in his chest.

    His skin stretches as his life begins anew.

    It feels like coming home.

    Summary

    It's something they started doing at the Academy.

     

    Jim is standing a few feet in front of his, pale face slightly flushed with the sickness of fever, wearing an old, too large Ole Miss hoody that covers his hands and hangs over Jims shoulder somewhat, drowning him in its grey folds of fabric and a pair of black clingy leggings that Len knows Jim wears when he's doing his yoga thingy routine, his thin rimmed glasses are slightly askew and he's clutching a large and raggedy, patched teddy bear in one of his arms. He looks terribly young, vulnerable and hurt and Len feels something in his heart give a tug.
     
    "Can you - will you - dance?" Jim stutters, voice hoarse and slow, with an edge that makes something in Len curdle like rotten milk at the edge Jims voice has to it making it known to Len that the kid has probably spent the majority of the day vomiting everything he doesn't eat up. The kids already too thin.

    Summary

    Mostly Hugo (as opposed to musical) timeline up through Javert's jump. He survives the jump and tries desperately to cling to his sense of duty and purpose, working as laborer by day and vigilante by night. When he gets injured and can no longer earn his pay, there is only one man he could turn to...

    Fill for kink meme prompt "Javert pulls a Fantine", but then expands into a massive second act of Valjean and Javert heading back to M-sur-M in an attempt to finish the work they started together years ago. Will they be able to find salvation?

    First attempt at fanfic; constructive criticism welcome.

    I do not own the characters, they belong to Victor Hugo.

    Summary

    “I need to know.”

    Derek raised eyebrows as he heard Stiles murmuring softly and looked at him; Stiles brushed his hand through his already messed hair and tried to avoid his eyes.

    “What’s that?” Derek asked gently. When he thought about it, he couldn’t remember ever talking to anyone but Cora in such a soft and tender tone. Stiles was his only exception.

    Summary

    - Muszę wiedzieć.

    Derek podniósł brwi doskonale słysząc wymamrotane cicho przez Stilesa słowa. Spojrzał na chłopaka, który swoim zwyczajem przeczesał dłońmi roztrzepane włosy i starał się uciec wzrokiem od przeszywającego, uważnego spojrzenia nieco starszego od niego mężczyzny.

    - Co takiego chcesz wiedzieć? – Zapytał Derek tak łagodnie jak tylko umiał. Kiedy o tym pomyślał, nie pamiętał, aby kiedykolwiek mówił do kogoś innego niż Cora tak miękko i spokojnie. Stiles był jego jedynym wyjątkiem.
