    Summary

    Sherlock and Mycroft are about to introduce their partners to their family. Before they do, they need to explain that their family is a bit bigger than expected and spans several parallel worlds.

    A threeway crossover between my fave fandoms - let's hope I do them justice!

    Summary

    So far the two of them have collected some smooth rocks, several keyrings, a plastic beaded necklace Janet says is from 12B, and elastics, also from 12B. The collection is in a secret drawer in his bedroom. When Michael or Chrestomanci sets him homework, he usually does it with at least one elastic on each hand.

    "They make my hands feel more real," he tries to explain to Janet, but she shakes her head.

    But Millie understands.

    Summary

    “We are, frankly, skeptical,” says Paget, twirling a stem of champagne in the air with her pointer finger, “that a talented enchantress such as yourself would abandon an engagement with the Chrestomanci in order to conduct an affair with a person of little magical talent, poor Germanic breeding, and questionable taste in fashion.”

    Summary

    "What do you think?" Conrad turns around self-consciously. The red material slopes down his broad back and goes almost to the floor. His bare feet are showing; he hasn't got on his stockings yet. The dress hasn't got any sleeves to it, and the muscles of Conrad's arms look doubly pronounced and about ten times hotter.

    "You're going to need a sweater," Christopher says.

    Summary

    In which Victor is a nine-lifed enchanter stuck in a career rut and a terrible hotel.

    A Worlds of Chrestomanci AU because the idea wouldn't leave me alone.

    This should make sense to people who haven't read any Diana Wynne Jones, though it will work best for people who've read Charmed Life, the Lives of Christopher Chant, and the Pinhoe Egg.

    Summary

    The children—there were quite a lot of them these days, between Chants and Pinhoes and a Montana and a griffin—were in the middle of breakfast when Mary came bustling in. “Surprise visit,” she said, tightening her apron fussily and correcting the pins in her hair. “Mr. Tesdinic is here from Series Seven.”

    Summary

    He’d never quite forgotten—this was the Series Christopher wanted to run away with Millie to. The place they all would have tried to run away to, probably, if they hadn’t gotten caught by Uncle Alfred in the shop. And every now and then when things were a little awful in Twelve—when things in the castle were too strange and he missed Anthea and Stallchester and Mum and even Stallery—he would close his eyes in bed at night and think about the three of them going off on adventures from island to island on a little boat of their own. Just the blue sea and the blue sky and him and Millie able to manage Christopher together well enough that they didn’t go crazy in between the times when they were in between islands, and Christopher to make them laugh and laugh with his cleverness, and everything warm and clear and happy.

    Summary

    In the future, not too long from now, Conrad would go home and things would inevitably change but that’s what happened when you grew up, Millie felt. Things had to change or you would get terribly bored.

    Summary

    "Seeing Mordecai again after all this time should have been a disappointment, thought Flavian. He should have appeared smaller, less interesting; Flavian’s feelings for him should have been spoilt by the knowledge of his betrayal. But instead… instead as the door opened to reveal Mordecai, he could feel his stomach clench, and his heart jump. All the feelings Flavian had for the other man came crashing back. Great, Flavian thought. He really wasn’t going to make this easy on himself, was he?"

    Summary

    Usually a Chrestomanci was born with nine lives. Sometimes they lost a few either in everyday life, between worlds, or protecting the realms from nefarious magical use. But those nine tend to always come in handy because Chrestomanci were always powerful (how could they not be with so many lives?) and so they held a lot of responsibility - were often in danger.

    Christopher had 27.

    The first time he told Millie this, Christopher, himself, hadn’t seemed to understand exactly what that meant. But she had. It helped perhaps, that she had been contemplating for so long, and with such focus, what happened at the end of her time as the Living Asheth. But she knew instantly that more lives for Christopher would only mean more deaths in the end. (Living Asheths became dead young women, as the portent showed.)

    It was the balance of such things.

    Summary

    There's nothing out of the ordinary about ghosts. But when new ones show up, it's time to ask questions.

    -OR-

    Tonino loves learning about Janet's world and maybe Janet too. If she needs help, he's there to do his best. And like the heroes in his fantasy books, they don't need magic to bail them out.

    Summary

    He had an eyelash on the side of his nose. His lids looked somewhat red and puffy, as if he had been rubbing them excessively. His mouth was slightly open, his brow furrowed. I felt a sudden urge to put my arms around him. To keep him safe from whatever it was he was running from, like how Anthea used to hug me.

    I wasn’t sure Christopher would appreciate it.

    Summary

    “Aslan?” Chrestomanci blinked. “You think I am Aslan?"

    It wasn't a no.

    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.)
