    Summary

    Michael's soulmark said "oh, I bet Christopher never forgets your name" in a foreign-looking scrawl. The problem was, it wasn’t true. Michael knew, rationally, that it was just a quirk of Christopher’s and it didn’t mean he was valued any less, but it still hurt every time Christopher called him “Mark” or “Sanders” or “Samson” or “Senders,” and it still hurt every time he looked at his words.

    He’d never shown it to Christopher, for all Christopher was the Chrestomanci, partly because Michael was a very private man, partly because Christopher’s name was on it, which felt weirdly personal. He did care about Christopher, certainly, but having the man’s name on his arm for the rest of his life--Christopher’s name when Michael's soulmate was someone else? No, thanks. He’d rather not have a soulmark at all. He'd rather take his chances looking, without Fate playing with him.

    Summary

    *COMPLETE*

    Roger Blake, the Chrestomanci, has been missing seven years. State enchanter Kerr Chant-Aven has been doing Blake's job and searching for him. Roj Blake the revolutionary has been missing for almost a year. Computer expert, criminal and reluctant rebel Kerr Avon has been similarly occupied. Also, the universe might be ending.

    (Not an AU in quite the way you might think.) (Don't necessarily be put off by this being a crossover. I think you can read this without knowing the DWJ—or even without knowing the B7, though you might have less incentive.)

    Summary

    It was a string of rather colourful curses that stopped Elijah Pinhoe in his tracks that morning. He paused to listen to it appreciatively, as he might have savoured a rare bird call, and then bent his path through the woods to find where it had come from.

    The source was easy to locate, crashing around in the underbrush as it was. It proved to be a tall, lanky young man with fair hair wearing, rather unexpectedly, a silk dressing gown. "Buggering bloody hell!" he shouted, and kicked a nearby oak tree. This seemed to hurt his foot, and he hopped around angrily in a circle, which brought him face to face with Elijah. He stopped hopping and stood there glowering instead.

    Summary

    Romantic it might be, but there was a limit to how much you could smile at each other, how many pet names you could find for each other and how many times people could pointedly leave you alone together before it all got a bit.. dull really. And there was a feeling as though that status had to be maintained, as though the first person to break it by speaking a cross word or even voicing a minor annoyance might be breaking something precious.
