    Summary

    Europe has been tense for the past fifty years with the rise of rival nations all competing for the same resources. Empires are built while others begin to wane. Rodriech wants to survive this new world that has emerged with his power, which is steadily declining, intact. Gilbert is harboring a grudge for the past century and intends to make good on his threats against Francis while making sure that everyone knows Germany is not to be messed with. Arthur and Francis are tired of fighting each other and know they could be stronger if they work together in this new century. And Ivan just wants to stop being the one everyone fears.

    But it's 1914 and the fateful shots at Sarajevo have sparked a war that none of them were truly prepared for. Between the muddy trenches and the misjudgment of its length, this war will become one of the worst. These four years will be enough for all nations to truly become bitter and tired of war. During its length friendships, alliances, and relationships will be put to the test as tensions rise and empires fall, because ghosts aren't the only things that can haunt you.

    Summary

    Bucky writes Steve letters from the Front. Letters he never sends. After he falls from the train, Steve finds them in the bottom of Bucky's kit bag back at camp. He reads them over and over again until they are in tatters. Until he is, too. When he falls, Agent Peggy Carter keeps them safe. Decades later, she returns them to the men to whom they belong. The men whose love was too big for paper to contain. But Bucky sure as hell tried.

    Summary

    "There’s this romantic notion about the trenches. Something about heroes and this is where they die..."

    Summary

    Stiles can take the bombardments. He can take killing a man. He can take hiding in the trenches for hours. He can take the rats and animals infestations. He can take crawling over dead bodies. He can take the war on, becoming less and less himself everyday. He cannot, however, take Officer Derek Hale and his damn attitude. Sterek, Scott/Isaac, WWI setting, Trench Warfare

    Summary

    Bloodlust had made it easy adjust after the war, a deterrent from the memories of machine guns, trenches and severed limbs. But a wounded soul is not something so easily mended, and it becomes obvious when the only distraction is taken away.

    Or: Mitchell has a nightmare he hasn't had in quite a long time, George and Annie won't let him wake up alone.

    Summary

    Captain James Stewart was not a man who accepted failure or defeat at face value. He was also not a man to trust in his losses. Those features may be the only thing that saves him from a life spent alone after the horrors of war, as after his resounding defeat he goes back to the battlefield where his one irreplaceable treasure was lost.

    Note: marked Explicit for intimate scenes in Chapter 4. (Which aren't terribly graphic but I'm a push-over.)

    Summary

    In 1920, two years after the end of the Great War, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson investigate two disappearances, eerily similar but separated by 80 years. In the process, they make enemies (and friends) of Bloomsbury intellectuals; travel to Sussex; deal with the aftermath of John's past in the trenches; read Victorian pornography; drink copious amounts of tea; and, of course, fall in love.
