    Summary

    Killius Octavius Durin is an 19-year-old patrician, an orphan living with his uncle as an elite member of Roman society. He's a bit on the spoiled side, with a record of mischief, but is respectable and learning politics.

    Filippos, now known as Fili, is a Greek slave who was kidnapped at the mere age of 7 from his native Greece and taken to Italy, where he was sold to various Roman owners. 13 years later, he's forced to participate in gladiator fights but he can earn his freedom and he's a natural fighter. He's determined to return to Greece and find his family, to rejoin them again.

    But he catches the eye of a brunette during a fight and Venus decides to curse them, crossing their stars. A story of freedom, love and inner daring.

    (Also, Greeks and Romans need to sort out their religions. "Killius, I swear to Zeus-" "Wait, you mean Jupiter, right?")

    Summary

    Sam sat in the passenger seat, trying unsuccessfully to watch Steve without seeming creepy. Steve seemed perfectly willing to ignore the unspoken question, content to simply drive, so Sam took a deep breath.

    “So...you wanna talk about it?”

    Steve played dumb. “'Bout what?”

    “'Even when you had nothing, you had Bucky.' Care to elaborate?”

    Steve stayed silent for a moment. “Not really.”

    Sam only waited a moment before adding, “I'd have to be blind not to see that he means a lot to you. Fighting him damn near killed you...and I'm not talking about the gunshot wounds to the torso. So whenever you want to talk about it...I'm right here.” He leaned his seat back just an inch and closed his eyes.

    Steve allowed himself to believe that Sam wasn't really paying that much attention as he started talking.

    “I met him in an alley in 1930.”

    Summary

    They say love is found in the most unusual of places, even if one has yet to realize it. Truer words have never been uttered than what had whispered within a young girl's heart to make it go aflutter. For upon the hangman's stage was where Emilia found herself pleading with her lord into buying the freedom of a foreign criminal only referred to as, "The Caspian". Obligated to serve her lord as payment for his release, he and Emilia find themselves in an odd relationship as the First World War and the Lord's attractive and popular grandson with an eye for Emilia threaten to pull them apart. For as the conflict that would be named, "The Great War" began, a whispering song was sung of a tragic love triangle between a young, idealistic girl with a passion to help, a chivalrous foreigner conscripted to fight for a nation that despises him and an handsome, manipulative boy bent on taking what's rightfully his. In the end, however, as the war raged on, all began to realize that the only way this war was to end was in a way so horrendously terrible that it would almost certainly leave nothing left but heartbreak and loss within those embattled trenches.

But John has a secret he's trying desperately to keep, and, it seems, so is just about everyone around him, including the incredibly gorgeous and amazing dance teacher, Sherlock Holmes, and his partner Irene Adler.

    Too bad Jim Moriarty seems to know precisely what everyone is hiding.

    Summary

    It’s the autumn of 1941, war is raging in Europe, German U-boats are raiding Allied convoys in the Atlantic, the Luftwaffe is bombing English cities, and the cryptographers at Bletchley Park are working feverishly to decode their enemies' encrypted communications. One should consider this challenge and distraction enough for capricious codebreaker Sherlock Holmes. But the true enigmas are yet waiting to be deciphered: an unbreakable code, a strange murder, and the appearance of Surgeon Captain John H. Watson of the Royal Navy.

    Summary

    Stella steps out of the vitaray chamber. Cheers immediately die, and everyone in the room looks shocked. She steps off the platform, center of gravity all wrong. “H-how do you feel?” Peggy chokes out. “Bigger,” Stella says, and oh shit, that’s not her voice. She opens her eyes, looks down. Her breasts are gone. Those aren’t her feet. She strips off her shirt. That’s a man’s chest. She yanks the belt out of her trousers. Pulls them out a bit from, Christ, from her pecs to take a peek. That’s a. Oh my God. That’s a man’s johnson. She looks up at Dr. Erskine, terrified, who stares back, head shaking in disbelief. Everyone in the room looks shell shocked.

    Oh, God. Bucky. What is Bucky going to think?

    Summary

    For the prompt :

    "Grantaire is loud, obnoxious, artistic, political, hard-drinking, and better-read and better-spoken than most men. Grantaire is also a woman. Men will sleep with her but despise her for her unbecoming unwomanliness. Women are put off by her personality and behavior. She knows of Les Amis and wants to do what they do; she adores their passionate young leader and the strength of his convictions. But Enjolras is a Jean-Jacques Rousseau fanboy, and thinks women's most important role in society is to stay home and dutifully raise their sons to be good republicans. Grantaire asks to join their crusade -- Enjolras politely but firmly rejects her.

    Some time later, Grantaire-disguised-as-a-man, disillusioned from years of scorn and nothing ever changing, gets drunk in a corner of the Musain. She wonders if today will be the day she finally asks Enjolras why he and his friends readily accept a useless nihilistic drunk in their meetings week after week, when they once turned away a passionate republican simply for wanting to be more than a woman was allowed to be.

    Grantaire/disillusionment, Enjolras/shame, Amis/holyshit"

    Summary

    Mr. Moray wishes to have a new supplier: the best parfumerie in Hungary. Mr. Maraczek sends the whole gang (July is a slow month) to make the deal. Friendships form, romances happen, drama occurs.

    Will the hungarians be amazed by the Paradise? Will Moray seal the deal? Was the author really serious in putting 'Sipos/Dudley' in the relationship tags? The answer to all these questions (and more!) unfolds within these chapters on a very irregular schedule.
