    Summary

    In the last days of the First World War, Dr. Watson returns from the service for which he departed in "His Last Bow," and looks for a new kind of work. He joins Dr. Arthur Hurst in his pioneering treatment of shell-shocked soldiers. But their work on the forefront of medical research, locked in battle against the destruction of the war, is disrupted by violent death. In addition to the obvious danger near at hand, there is the risk that this will discredit Hurst’s unusual methods. Dr. Watson does the only thing he can do: he calls in Holmes. The case will require their joint expertise, and all the wisdom of their shared experience.

    This fic includes lots of emotional conversations, history, architecture, parlor music, and literary allusions. It is appearing in fortnightly installments (every other Sunday), and should be published in its entirety by February 2018.

    Summary

    For the Watson's Woes Advent prompt, "Lessons and Carols." Holmes loves music, Watson loves Holmes, and the author indulges her feelings about liturgical history and medieval music. As with other things I write for Holmes and Watson, this can be read as gen or slash.

    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

    "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.
