    Summary

    Darcy Lewis doesn't know much about physics, but she knows about friendships and sticking to them. It's why she's still working with Jane even after all that life-threatening shit. Besides, you can only see world-rending dimensional rips for so many times before you barely blink back at the abyss when you're out of morning coffee. Jane's weird physics crap she could deal with.

    Her problem was how some people thought she was stupid just because she couldn't give a damn about quantum mechanics. If they want to think wrongly of her, she couldn't care less. Politics, though...she knew how people jockey for power like the back of her hand. Her survival in a world of superpowered heroes and villains relied more on keeping her eyes peeled and her wits about her. All she wanted to do now was stay out of trouble, bask in the company of good-looking superheroes and enjoy life. Really. She's pretty happy with where she is right now, thanks.

    Of course, we don't always get what we want, do we?

    Summary

    “I fear in the hours time. They... have announced it will not be their home world we summon them from but another. We must wait for them to reach that point. Are you so eager that your renowned patience is in fowl play now?” Odin laughed at the blush and the quick turn of Loki’s head.

    A story of new deals with new races, emotional trolling by Thor, and Loki ever trying to find his place. Odin tries to be a good father and Frigga tries to be a supporter for her husband and sons. All of it though keeps being ruined by one person with a very 'god-ish' attitude' (no pairings yet, will add later)

    His need to avoid touch was made all the more unfortunate by the fact that when he enjoyed it, he really did.

    Summary

    In the palace she’d grown up in, when Miranda said, “I’m hungry,” food bustled into the room of its own will. The sheets pulled back on her bed. She wore what she wanted. She slept when she was tired and she ate when she was hungry. She ran when she wanted to run and she was still when she wanted to be still.

    Milan was not much like that.

    Summary

    It is a story from a song--a fair maid stolen in the dead of night, and her brothers and her betrothed riding to her rescue. They will tear a kingdom apart, pull a king from his throne, and crown another in his place, all in the name of the fair, stolen maid.

    It is a tale that comforts men and reassures them. Even though the knight is too late to save his lady, he gains a kingdom and a queen even fairer than the maid he lost. But the truth is not so simple. A war is not one story; it is thousands speaking at once. We do not know what the maid thought, or the prince’s wife, herself a princess by birth. And other ladies too, whose parts in this tale are further obscured, as often happens when histories are written by men.

    This is their story. This was their war.

    Summary

    A series of problems, and a series of solutions. Korra applies traditional methods, while Asami turns to more modern innovations. Sometimes, you can take things on faith. Other times, you have to be pragmatic.

    One isn't better than the other, but it doesn't always seem that way.

    Summary

    Loki has always felt a little different on Asgard, cast out from his brother and his friends. But when he happens across a passage to Midgard, he finds himself under the bed of a hyper and overenthusiastic nine year old, Darcy Lewis, who is shocked there's a kid under her bed and not a monster. Loki soon learns that his new Midgardian friend shares not only his love of books, but also undying curiosity for the world around them.

    Together, they make monumental childhood discoveries, go on dangerous adventures, and get into heaps...and heaps...and heaps of trouble.

    Summary

    At the age of thirty, Mr. Sherlock Woodhouse possessed everything that a young gentleman would desire - a large fortune, a well-respected family name, and a handsome face - yet he was still deeply unhappy. Along with the aforementioned benefits, Mr. Woodhouse had an excellent mind that seemed to find boredom wherever he went. Luckily for him, he had a special friend in Miss Molly Knightly. Sherlolly version of Jane Austen's Emma.

    Summary

    Gryffindor isn't what Slytherin sees in it, and the reverse is even more true. The Potters don't know they look different depending on where you're standing, the Blacks know precisely how they come across and like it that way, and Severus Snape isn't exactly who anyone thinks he is—least of all himself.

    Britain, Spring of 1980. No one cares what's fair when their people are on the line, and truth would be subjective even if everyone told it. Brute-force bloody battles are how Gryffs (and Lestranges) think; when a sane Slytherin wants power it's all smoke and smiles, masks and mirrors. Roll up your sleeves, slip into your cloak, and slap that dagger on your belt. This is war, people—pick a side!

    ...What the hell. Pick three.

    Ch. 72: July 31, 11:45 pm:
    Potter vs Snape, round 993,234,546,878. Snape vs Potter, round 1.
    (Ch 73 is just a PSA about Act II.)

    Summary

    Britain, Summer of 1980. The world isn't made of good people and Death Eaters—and that's true whichever way you cut it. Prophecies have been spoken and heard, children born, Horcuxes hidden, and one Tom Riddle is losing his grip even as his power builds. A government afraid of terrorists is a sadly predictable animal, and those who want to escape a magical brand will have to find some more creative out than running away.

    Albus Dumbledore is working three jobs, not counting extracurriculars, and his little club of the insanely dedicated and really-stupidly-overworked is growing.

    Ch. 1/73: James 'New Dad' Potter tries to convince Albus not to trust Snivellus. Again. He could, like, get index cards if it would help.

    Meanwhile, Albus is trying to lay the groundwork for some kind of truce between stag and cobra.
    Which might have been easier if said stag hadn't just been deviously drugged last night to give the cobra access to his wife...

    Summary

    Moving to Manhattan is supposed to be a stopgap until she gets her GED. Instead, she gets a sister (well, cousin, technically, but neither of them quibble), a degree, a firm, a devil, and a whole pack of monsters.

    God, she really should be getting therapy.

    [Or, the one where Darcy Lewis stitches up gut wounds, runs away from home, buys a gun, becomes a lawyer, helps start a blog, saves a life, may or may not have squishy feelings, and learns how to make a mean chocolate babka. Not necessarily in that order.]

    Summary

    "She stood and stared again at Sherlock, disbelieving. She’d feared for his safety, of course she had, but had always deep down believed that he was untouchable, a magician that could evade harm through sleight of hand and tricks, or that guardian angels protected him, even if they were not of the heavenly variety"

     

    Sherlock had made a mistake and he knew it. What he didn't know was just how far reaching the consequences would be.

    Sherlock takes a bullet.

    Molly takes a trip.

    Unrepentant Sherlolly. Prequel to "Saving for a rainy day", but can be read as a stand alone.
