    Summary

    After everything that had happened to her in London Molly'd had enough. When she got the opportunity to leave London for a new job and a new life in California she took it and didn't really look back. Most of the time. Except she wasn't really living all that much better of a life in California than she'd had in London. When Sherlock arrives and informs her he's not going back to London until she comes back with him it's a battle of wills between them to see who bends first. But things don't work out how either of them expected them to, and they both need to figure out if there's some happy medium between what each of them wants when it comes to the other.

    Summary

    Mycroft's orchestrations have 'retired' Sherlock, leaving the consulting detective to fill the gap left by his rapidly-closed career, in an East Sussex cottage of his own choosing, with John (also of his own choosing, and may everyone know it). It is a quiet, not-hateful life. But puzzles have always come Sherlock's way, and one is about to take a dangerously personal turn.

    Summary

    Dean had always believed he would go out with a gun in his hand, bleeding for a righteous cause. Blaze of glory style. 'Preferably with the song playing,' Sam had once teased him. Sam had resigned himself to the same exit, even if it wasn’t his ideal ending. So long as it was by his brother’s side, it didn’t really matter anymore. But somewhere along the way, Dean had changed his mind.

     

     

    An easy hunt goes a little worse than expected, and has the boys facing some hard, and maybe even long sought after, truths about their age and considering retirement.

    Summary

    Stevie Gerrard is the long-suffering captain of the Liverpool Birds, a once glorious team in the NHL, but now barely scraping by. After another first round exit, he contemplates retiring and giving up his dream to win the Stanley Cup. But his friend Carra convinces him to give it one more shot, to which he agrees.

    Nando Torres is looking for one more shot at redemption and Xabi Alonso is looking for one more escape, and both find that in their old team of the Birds and in their erstwhile Captain.

    Jurgen Klopp, the new Birds coach, might be crazy for getting the old guard back, but then again, all greatness comes from one last throw.

    A throw none of them will waste, even if it kills them.

    Summary

    Whisking Q away to Skyfall was the best decision James Bond had ever made. This is a collection of drabbles about their lives together after their incident in Something to Come Back To. Can be read on its own, but why not check out the prequel while you're at it? Inspired by Tsuyu's prompt: "After Bond retires and drags Q with himself to Skyfall (which in my mind is still standing)"
