John could be a temptation Sherlock cannot resist.

    Summary

    It's 1969, and when Jim Kirk gets his draft letter in the mail, it feels like his death sentence has already been signed. Fighting a war in which he doesn't believe, Jim finds something to fight for: he finds family.

    This is not a love story. This is a story about war, how love can be found in even the most unlikely of places, how destiny can draw seven people together despite all odds stacked against them. This is the story of a man who wanted to touch the stars, who found the world too small, who found a reason to live.

    Summary

    Morgana may have sided against Camelot, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t miss the sweetbread. A nostalgia-induced scheme brings her to Camelot, where she disguises herself as a therapist of sorts in the lower town. She hopes to hear visitors’ useful confessions—dissent in the knights’ ranks, military weaknesses, royal secrets, a hidden trapdoor into the throne room—but what she gets instead are personal revelations, both tedious and absurd. Between the frequent visits from Merlin, Gwen, and every other nervous talker in town, and the impromptu visits from a very suspicious Gwaine, her patience (and her magic) is sorely tested. When Arthur starts visiting, though, the stakes of her mission change, and she finds that being the Worry Woman gives her more power over her brother than she could ever have dreamed of, as well as a few possibilities it never even occurred to her to consider.

    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

    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

    Edward got closer. He just couldn't believe how young she looked. For all he knew she could have been snapped away from Amestris just minutes after he had left her, never to return by her side. His brows knitted together from thinking about the painful memory. A gamut of 'what if's' suddenly invaded his mind and put weight upon his aching heart. Remorse was a cold bitch.

    Summary

    Written for the Marvel POC Exchange. Among the many things the requester was interested in, I drew inspiration from the following items, which have shown up in this fic in varying degrees:

    Antoine Triplet/Jemma Simmons, Gabe Jones/Peggy Carter, Nick Fury/Melinda May, backstory, poly relationships, secret relationship reveals, examining outside influences on a relationship (personal level or societal), hurt/comfort, generations of interracial/poly relationships at SHIELD and how things have changed
