    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

    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'.

    Summary

    Что для тебя дом, парень?
    Место, куда ты всегда можешь вернуться. Или место, куда тебе хочется возвращаться, даже если не можешь. Или это просто деревянная коробка их четырех стен, дающая крышу над головой. Или дом – это человек, в душе которого ты всегда найдешь пристанище.

    Summary

    Tall, though not as tall as some of the boys here. Lanky, but built like a runner or a swimmer, not a body for team sports. Not nearly enough muscle on him for crew. Anthony almost pities him. Pathetic little thing. The college had no idea what they were doing bringing him here. It certainly wasn’t for scholarship.

    An unlikely meeting between unlikely people, and the surprising love that grows between them.

    Something along the lines of that “You used to be so big” scene, except with Austria and Veneziano. The German brothers make a cameo appearance.

    The evening sunlight is golden and kind on the gardens of Versailles, and Veneziano wishes it wasn’t.

    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

    Akaashi was wearing beige and cream on a flocked sweater vest. Koutarou had always thought the colours one step short of death, tugged into them in lace and ribbon, frills enclosing around his ribcage like a coffin; on Akaashi they look like morning. The electric light highlighted the copper-gilt strands in Akaashi’s hair, turned their eyes glass-like. There was a body at their feet.

    It's been years since Kenma bought that pearly-pink powder and tried it on to go meet Kuroo after his shift, been years since Kuroo wiped his hands on his overalls and looked up and said don't you touch them like that. It's been years since he opened the door to the mob. They are the mob now. They're the ones knocking down the doors.
