    Summary

    "Just go pick up some Eurotrash from the docks."

    Harvey looked between all three of them with wide eyes and a furrowed brow, tapping the grey ash from his cigarette into a clear ashtray. "Don't tell me you haven't seen 'em. Crawling onto the docks- all fresh off the boat from Ellis island."

    "Well, they're desperate- they'll take anything if it pays more than a cent. You could probably get one to do both jobs."

    Joe looked thoughtful, Pete looked interested, and Andy looked sad. Their personalities could not have been more perfectly outlined in their reactions to the news of masses of hungry-for-work, starving immigrants.

     

    "The docks, eh?"

    Summary

    There are plenty of stories about Meredith Mansfield, the society darling who became a forest spirit for a hundred years. They say she sacrificed her child to the forest to be raised as its own protector. They say her one true love was a soldier, who no matter how he tried could not wash the blood from his hands enough. They say she betrayed him to a cruel man, who lived for the hunt, if it had no means of fighting back against him. She betrayed this hunter too, luring him into the forest and striking him down with lightning on the night of their engagement. She trapped her old lover inside a tree, and for her crimes, she was herself trapped in the river for a hundred years, until all who remembered her were dead and gone.

    This is all true, for a certain degree of the word ‘true’.
    But it does not tell the whole story.

    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

    "Wolves howling on a moonless night, gypsy camps slaughtered by savage creatures that came from the dark forest. He was holding his hunting gun, aiming at the darkness, where a beast with golden eyes stared at him until suddenly there was no monster staring at him. He turned his back to face a woman with a pale face and long dark hair. Her beauty was ethereal, nearly phantasmagoric. She touched his face, she kissed him on the lips and bite his neck amidst a lust hush. This is a dream.

    Summary

    Charles had spared his life. That was not something he could easily repay.

    They wrote letters to each other for two years, until Charles was pulled out of the war from a sudden illness and Erik remained to fight for a cause he didn't believe in. One that ultimately had no effect; one that stole away four years of his life.

    Traumatized and persecuted, Erik applied for a post at Janus, a lighthouse in the middle of the Irish Sea. He thought being alone would do him good.

    Despite the letters and despite the love, Erik didn't expect Charles to find him.

    Summary

    Blue Sargent doesn't want friends. Blue wants to get out of her tiny wizarding village and see the world, muggle and magical alike. But keeping your head down and finding your escape isn't quite as simple as all that when the sorting hat starts warbling about a powerful awakening of an old legend and you end up being caught up in a whirlwind of a quest to find something 'more than a god' by a group of boys with questionable authority on the subject.

    Or: the multi-chapter, epic Hogwarts AU that no one asked for but I wanted anyway.

    Summary

    It is early May in the summer of 1928 and almost a year and a half has passed since December, 1926 after Newt's adventure capturing his beasts in New York. Gellert Grindelwald resisted all interrogation methods and escaped undetected from MACUSA one winter's night in late 1927 with help from his loyal followers.

    The sinister wizard has gone into hiding underground and the international hunt to capture him has gone cold. Newt is busy working in the Beast Division at the Ministry of Magic after successful publication and international press tours of his book, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them from May to August in 1927.

    Newt and Tina have kept in close contact through letters transported by ship and Newt has taken the occasional romantic visit to New York. His suitcase is now considerably lighter and magically refurbished after secretly returning some of his creatures to their natural habitats throughout Britain.

    Yet they never forgot about Credence, sometimes pondering the thought of his survival and wonder where he may have gone, reminiscing on the fiery tendril of the Obscurus flying out of the subway at dawn that winter's morning in a desperate attempt to find it's host and escape death.
