    Summary

    Megan uncovers something that should've stayed buried but how can she resist when he looks like everything she's ever wanted? Set in Lancashire, England in the 1920's.
    I based this one on local horror stories and Lancashire folklore, it's Oakley but not like you'd expect.
    I don't know if there's been a boggart version of Tom but I'll give it a whirl. :)

    Summary

    I'm too impatient to write more before posting so I will think of a summary when there is enough to summarise. In essence, Patroclus enlists in the army and Achilles is waiting for him over the Aegean Sea.

    Summary

    “Quelle performance, mon cher !” France says, earning himself a dark, yet desperate look from Prussia as he walks towards him, a grin still on his face.
    “Va te faire foutre,” Prussia answers simply, and he sounds tired, tired, tired of the West and the East and the trenches and rationing, uprising and death.

    Bismarck is dead and so are the men who once sang the Internationale in the streets of Paris. Still, the taste of it all had lingered in his throat, for decades, even up until now, even as he watches Prussia fall on his knees, a sigh coming out of his mouth. There’s something striking about the look of him, the sunken eyes and the still impeccable uniform. It’s beautiful.

    Summary

    “Greenburg’s dead…” Stiles said in a whisper. Derek didn’t answer, just stared up into the sky, trying to catch his breath. All he wanted was a steady job, to provide for his sisters. He never wanted to kill anybody.

    “Sir? We should get moving…” Stiles put his hand on Derek’s shoulder. His eyes were wide and frightened when Derek finally met them. “Please, Derek. Let’s get out of here.”

    Derek jerked Stiles into his arms. Stiles made a squeak as he squeezed too tightly. Derek couldn’t make himself care. He buried his face into Stiles neck, taking breath after haggard breath of that sweet, cinnamon scent. He wanted to bite, mark and claim and take his mate out of that awful place. Instead he ran his tongue along the length of his neck, relishing the pulse when he found it. Stiles whimpered slightly and rested his head on Derek’s shoulder.

    “You alright?” Derek asked. His fingers ran carefully over Stiles’ injured arm, trying to gauge the extent of the wound.

    “Yes,” Stiles’ breath was warm against him. “We should go…”

    Derek pushed his lips to his mate’s neck, trying to memorize the salty sweet taste. “You’re alright,” he said, his mind hazy.

    Summary

    For Marshal Yune-Gallagher, a half-Korean man living in London's East End, war is an enigma, an escape from a life of poverty and heartbreak. After much thought, he joins the British Army thinking it would be a new life for him. But when the First World War (1914-1918) started, he would find not new life but death, a budding romance with a spiritedly sarcastic nurse and the silent song of men.

    Summary

    The day Lyanna married, her mother cried. They weren’t even elegant small teardrops rolling down her cheeks. Her face was red and her mouth tremulous. The day Lyanna married, her father shook hands with Aerys Targaryen despite their many differences. The day Lyanna married, her brother Brandon enlisted in the army and could not make it to the service. The day Lyanna married, Ned, her middle brother, brought her a bouquet of winter roses. The day Lyanna married, her youngest brother, named Benjen, put a halfpenny in her shoe to bring her luck. But the day Lyanna married, it rained and it was cold and the bride might have just as well worn mourning clothes for all the happiness she was awarded.

    Summary

    Glukupikron: adjective and oxymoron.
    Ancient Greek, meaning sweetbitter.
    From Fragment 130 V by Sappho.

    “Eros deute m'ho lusimeles donei
    glukupikron amachanon orpeton"

    “Eros, loosener of limbs, once again trembles me,
    sweetbitter, sly, uncontrollable creature... ”

     

    August 1914. John Watson is a soldier of the 2nd Battalion of the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers stationed in the city of Sabathu, India. As war starts to rage in Europe, he is forced to return to England and to join the fight against the Empires in France. Wounded in battle, he is sent back to England to recover from the injury. He thus arrives to the private hospital held in their mansion by the Holmes family. There he meets their youngest – and aloof – son Sherlock Holmes.

    In a ten years' span time with the history of Europe as background, we follow their constant search for each other, through loss, fear, delusion, but mainly love.

     

    “Love shook my heart,
    Like the wind on the mountain
    rushing over the oak trees.”

    Summary

    This is a combination of two short stories from Daegaer's 'Captain Crowley' series, the ones focused on Aziraphale. Due to their short length, I grouped them together. I plan to post the rest of this series as well, finishing with "Bright With His Splendour" which was the whole point, after all. I hope I do them justice.
