    Summary

    The Great War woke a devil in Matt Murdock. This is why he bare knuckle boxes. This is also why he cannot love Claire Temple. But when she runs afoul of some gangsters, Matt must involve himself or risk losing her entirely. Dancing around his feelings was far easier when death, his friends' well-placed meddling, and a corruption scandal weren't involved.

    Summary

    His Lordship Captain Sirius Orion Black, heir to the Black family fortune, has returned from the Great War. Sirius’ next line of duty, according to his parents, is to find a suitable wife. However, Sirius himself is rather disinterested in finding a bride, and more excited by discovering the new culture that is brewing in London with the coming turn of the decade.
    Remus John Lupin, son of former lawyer Corporal Lyall Lupin and seamstress Hope Lupin, did not fight in the Great War due to arrhythmia and what was called “weak lungs.” A person of his class and health has few prospects.
    Two more different young men could not be found.

    Summary

    Captain Armitage Evelyn Hux returned from the trenches of World War One suffering from PTSD and haunted by two things- the tragic death of his lover on the last day of the conflict and the mysterious demonic presence that had haunted the battlefields. Gripped by despair Hux threw himself into the post-war London society and as the Roaring Twenties gathered steam he developed a reputation as a wild but charming socialite with a dark streak that only surfaced after heavy drinking. What no one knows is that of the two beings that shaped his experience of the war Hux would give anything to be free of one and everything to win back the other...

    Summary

    "There's an ancient, ancient garden that I see sometimes in dreams,
    Where the very Maytime sunlight plays and glows with spectral gleams;
    Where the gaudy-tinted blossoms seem to wither into grey,
    And the crumbling walls and pillars waken thoughts of yesterday."

    - H.P. Lovecraft, "The Garden"

    Summary

    A Rhyll Everett back story. It follows on directly from 'I turn you out of doors' (http://archiveofourown.org/works/3167672/chapters/6878030), but it's probably not strictly necessary to read that before this. It opens in the Easter holidays between 'Bride' and 'Changes'.
