    Summary

    When Gandalf had asked Bilbo to look after his shop for a bit, Bilbo expected the old man to mean a few weeks, two months at most. But then, he’d also expected to have figured out what on earth he’s doing with his life by 34. He’d expected that he’d find work that had anything to do with his degree, that he wouldn’t suddenly be raising an 8-year-old, that he wouldn’t step into a business on the verge of unexpected financial ruin. And yet, there he was.

    When he ended up with an employee who was more efficient than he could ever have hoped to be, it seemed like things might finally turn around. Now if only Bilbo could figure out what to do about that man who kept glaring at him from the doorway twice a week like clockwork, and why his heart beat a little harder every time.

    Summary

    XVIII September, MCCXIV. As the feckless King John of England signs away his French lands at Chinon, the English barons mutter mutinously against the man known as 'Softsword'. Amongst their lower ranks is Lord Castiel of Colingburn, who has enough on his plate already without adding some smart-arsed, know-all son of a Saxon merchant who has bowed legs, a handsome smile, and the sort of attitude that definitely rubs the young nobleman up the wrong way.

    Which is unfortunate, as what he gets is some smart-arsed, know-all son of a Saxon merchant who has bowed legs, a handsome smile, and the sort of attitude that definitely rubs the young nobleman up the wrong way.

    Summary

    When is the beginning of all things... Not truly the beginning? In 1943, forty six years before Harry Potter (Ren Cartwright) and Neville Longbottom (Neil Cartwright) cross time and space on their Interdimensional Fix-It Mission, young Inez Hernandez of Castelobruxo, Brazil, in an attempt to flee her personal grief at the loss of her beloved twin sister to the plague of lethifolds overtaking her continent, embarks on a Cross-Continental Magical Adventure to war-torn Europe on an exchange program with Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Once arrived, she is greeted first by a young-and-upcoming school-aged Tom Riddle, and, over the months that follow, is reminded of an essential truth; that though you can never truly leave your troubles behind, because there are always new, unexpected and at times quite horrifying variations awaiting - there too can be most unexpected light in the darkness, and the hope of grace and miracles, if only one has the courage to be patient. BEST READ DURING/IMMEDIATELY AFTER SOLACE.

    Summary

    Watson sits down in 1925 to retell a story of his and Holmes's past, specifically from April and May of 1895. This case was kept under wraps until 50 years after Watson's death, left to be read by an era more willing to embrace the truth of his life with Sherlock Holmes. During the two trials in the spring of '95 with Oscar Wilde at the Old Bailey courthouse, Holmes and Watson vanished from London to the English countryside to find safety from oppressive eyes. A minor burglary case sparks an elaborate escape plan put in place for two young women not dissimilar to themselves.

    In this romance and adventure story, we see the mysterious untold story behind the serially published cases of the Victorian era. A love story between Holmes and Watson that has waited far too long to be told emerges effortlessly, and even in times of great societal struggle, they manage to maintain safety and happiness with the help of one another.
