    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

    Pietro runs ahead of the hunt, never astride a horse, for what horse could be as fast as his own legs? He can race past a stag, grab it’s antlers, wrestle it into the ground before any man has his gun aimed. He can catch ducks and doves from the air, he races the hounds and past them, does dancing acrobatics that none can match and his strength and his speed are seen as no more than his right, for he is a man.

    Wanda is a woman, and so she goes to the women’s meetings. When the women with powers are asked to come forward, to show their gifts, Wanda holds a cataclysm in her hands and they cower.

    Summary

    This wasn’t entirely the way she’d wanted to touch base with her brother’s friend, Percy, but in some epic twist of irony, it made total sense. He already thought she was a complete heathen with insane ideas on what would be appropriate for a woman of the times...
    In other words, gender-bent version of Fantastic Beasts where Artemis Scamander figures out the game and runs everyone on a merry chase.

    Summary

    The serum straightened Steve’s crooked back, healed his weak lungs, and brought new color to his vision, and sometimes Bucky wonders what else it could do. Maybe the secret of Steve’s desire for Bucky was imprinted on his genetic code, and like every other imperfection stamped there, Erskine’s formula wiped it out. It would explain why Steve no longer looks at him with quiet longing, and Bucky almost hopes that the experimentations of a mad scientist are to blame. Because the alternative is too painful to consider, that Steve simply stopped wanting Bucky of his own accord.

    Summary

    The man was wearing short green corduroy shorts and Ben watched, fascinated, as the rope slid under and between his legs, perfectly positioned on the twenty-some-odd-centimeters of thick fabric that separated him from what would surly be the most inopportune and unfortunate rope-burn imaginable. Jędrzej bumped past him, walking towards the base of the route to meet the man as he repelled down and startling Ben out of his thoughts.

    It's the summer of 1980 and the political situation in Poland is in upheaval. Ben has no interest in politics, though. He just got back from an expedition to the summit of Mount Everest when he meets a red haired climber in the High Tatra Mountains, who is unlike anyone he has ever met before.
