    Summary

    September ‘49
     
    He hasn’t seen him since that day in France, that horrible muddy day where for one terrifyingly long second, Louis really thought he was going to die. He winces with the phantom pain, the hand not holding his cane going to his stomach automatically, remembering the franticness, the tenderness, of Harry’s hands while Louis was bleeding out.

    This is the man who saved Louis’ life.

    For one second, Louis fears Harry won’t recognise him, but his eyes widen when he turns to his left and they meet Louis’. He takes a step forward, reaching for him with a shaky hand before stopping himself.

    “Louis,’ Harry says with a shudder and Louis doesn’t think his name has ever carried more weight.

    This is the only man Louis ever thought about kissing for real.

    “Oh,” Mrs. Padley says, clearly taken aback. “You two know each other?”

    There are some things people never fully come home from. Until, one day, if they’re lucky, home comes to them.

    Summary

    Jung Hoseok never expected his life to take such a turn.Not even in his wildest fantasies.If anyone told him that he would give up his comfortable,fancy way of living in New York City in order to pursue a "ghost" in the depths of Syberia,along with his best friend,Min Yoongi,he'd laugh his heart out in seconds and his fear over boarding the airplane to France would be forgotten,even if it was just for a small amount of time.The case he was handed could be considered as a piece of cake,taking into consideration that he,alongside with Yoongi,were the most respectable and experienced duo of lawyers in the city that never sleeps.Buying an old,unknown,automaton company was no big deal,right?Just the signature of the owner was all he needed.But what happens when the same owner passes away the day Hoseok and Yoongi arrive in the small town of Valadilene?And what happens when they find out that there is a secret heir hiding in the coldest parts of Russia?

    or

    The one where Hoseok and Yoongi board on a mechanical,private train,travel from Europe to Russia on their attempt to find an old genius/lunatic that still believes in the existence of mammoths.

    Summary

    Dazai spreads his hands apart. “It’s a pleasure to see you too, Akutagawa-kun. We haven’t done anything insidious to Atsushi-kun,” he taps a finger to his lips — damn, did Atsushi learn that from him or did Dazai pick it up from him — and shrugs his shoulders. It’s a fluid movement. “I think he just found someone he hates more than the Port Mafia.”

    Akutagawa is miffed and mildly jealous. “Excuse me?”

    Summary

    Coming back from the war is hard on everyone. Percival didn't think that it would affect him much, but mere days after returning to New York he finds that - because of the noise, the lights, the people - he just can't stand the city any longer. He strikes it lucky when it turns out a recently deceased relative has left him a cabin off in the woods, and he wastes no time gathering what little belongings he cherishes to get away from it all.

    What he finds there, tucked away from civilization, is not only a nice, quiet place to rest, but also a bit of an unlikely friend.

    After his car breaks down in the middle of the Scottish wilderness, escaped soldier Jamie Fraser stumbles upon the standing stones of Craigh Na Dun. Desperate to avoid capture, he touches the stones and wakes up 200 years in the past, staring up at the ceiling of Claire Beauchamp's cabin with a bullet in his leg. As she helps him recover, he notices something familiar about this strange woman, living alone at the base of a fairy hill. Once he discovers her origins, however, he must decide whether to tell her the truth and, alternatively, reveal to her the difficulties of his own plight.

    Summary

    After release from a German POW camp, Farrier returns to England only to be greeted with grave news regarding his former RAF partner.

    Because I thought that, realistically, Farrier probably has better survival odds at the end of that movie than Collins does.
