    Summary

    They both are away at a quiet New Jersey beach point when they meet walking along the beack one morning and his dog knocks her down. The developing relationship gets quite involved before each realises that the other is famous at what they dobut it is just not what the other follows. Can they make this work or will it just be a few more week of fun till they must get back to bussiness.

    This novel Is Complete- there are 38 chapters. I wrote it in just over a years time about 7 years ago. I will post it a few chapters a a time. I was written Post LOTR, POTC. I'll add seperate content tags before a couple of the sex chapters in case you want to skip those but they so not apply to the work as a whole so feel the tags would be missleading.

    Summary

    There are a few things that Carlos may have neglected to tell Cecil.

    Like his last name.

    Or how he hasn’t actually dated anyone since his junior year of high school.

    Or that he’s a wizard of the White Council and the regional commander of Wardens in the western United States and not, in fact, a scientist.

    You know. Minor details.

    Summary

    When Sherlock and John become roommates at a prestigious sixth-form college, they both get a lot more than they bargained for. Between Shakespeare, rugby, and not a small amount of murder, it promises to be a very interesting year, but there is much more going on than meets the eye. A noose is tightening around the duo, darker and more dangerous than anyone realizes, and it will take everything they both have to unravel it before they lose everything they've found.

    For so long she shut everything out, she eventually shut herself out along with the rest of the world. A bad thing to do but it isn't as if anyone cares, she tries to reason. Until a certain British boy band comes along and Liam Payne, the boy who could have anyone he wanted in her crappy small town or the world, chooses her.

    He falls in love with the broken girl with the beautiful grey eyes and wants to give her a life of love, like she deserves. But she has a hard time believing after everything that's happened.

    Summary

    Chris has come to London early to see Tom's final performance of Hamlet and spend a few days alone with him before they head north to film the next installment of Thor. There's been some weird stuff in the news lately--people getting sick, even dying, from some new kind of super-flu--but that kind of thing goes on all the time and nothing comes of it really, right?

    It turns out that things aren't business as usual. For one thing, London has been covered by an epic snowstorm, shutting everything down for miles around the city. For another, this isn't merely some sort of mutated virus, but a deliberate act carried out with sinister intent. The only way Chris can save the life of Tom, and many others, is to cross over to another universe and enlist the aid of some (strangely familiar) people he never believed were real.

    Summary

    Post-Avengers. Loki is imprisoned on Midgard until he can demonstrate "repentance and atonement," but he's not interested in penitence. So far, he has successfully scared away every psychologist SHIELD has sent him, until a mysterious woman visits his cell one day...Loki/OC. A little more serious and philosophical than your typical redemption story. (OC is to explore different aspects of the character--not self-insertion! Promise!)
