    Summary

    WARNING: This fic contains MANY controversial elements including religious references, homosexuality/homophobia, prepubescent sex and attempted rape. Every element that may be considered sensitive has been listed in the additional tags, so please refer accordingly. Please refrain from complaining to me about triggering elements as you have been warned that this is a fic that was written partly with the intention to explore taboo, and you shall thus proceed forth at your own risk. (Also: fem!Sinbad and fem!Ja'far)

    10-year-old Sinbad comes from the royal household of Partevia and is well-known for her more often than not startling charisma despite being a female. 9-year-old Ja'far is a (perhaps excessively) reserved daughter of blue blood, but she cares far more for burying her nose in the pages of time than for engaging in either social or diplomatic relations akin to those of her parents'. Yet, a portentous meeting with a certain princess proceeds to set askew both their entire future for better or for worse, and the two neighbouring Catholic households are thrust into the incontrovertible veracity that is none other than their daughters' tumultuous relationship.

    Summary

    “Promise Punk!” She yelled as the metal gave way yet again and fell from its place against the ninety degree angle folds unable to make a sound he just nodded his head. With tears clouding her vision she let go and Steve’s grip on the hanging rod was not enough to keep the dangling weight up. As one gloved hand slipped from the other a scream ripped from the depth of Steve’s throat. Despite the resignation of fate fear still crept in the eyes as Steve gazed upon them for the last time before turning away unable to see her slip from his view.

    Or In which the author enjoys fem!Bucky to much and decides to do a growing up story. Story is Pre-WW2 (For now)

    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

    Lenalee loves an enemy, his Lieutenants say. Well, not in these words, but the idea is clear enough. Kamelot is an enemy. The mere idea revolts Allen, for several reasons:
    1/ It's war, they don't have time for this
    2/ That makes Lenalee a legit-to-hell traitor
    3/ Kamelot is a woman and so is Lena?
    4/ Neah

    He needs to deal the situation, and quickly. The thing is, in the end, it's more Lenalee who deals with him.

    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

    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

    Many thanks to emotionalmorphine for the last-minute beta!
