    Summary

    "Wolves howling on a moonless night, gypsy camps slaughtered by savage creatures that came from the dark forest. He was holding his hunting gun, aiming at the darkness, where a beast with golden eyes stared at him until suddenly there was no monster staring at him. He turned his back to face a woman with a pale face and long dark hair. Her beauty was ethereal, nearly phantasmagoric. She touched his face, she kissed him on the lips and bite his neck amidst a lust hush. This is a dream.

    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

    World War One!AU. Featuring letter writing, hopefully not awful characterisation, and conscientious objectors!Jehan, Combeferre and Grantaire. 1st Person POV: Jean Prouvaire.

    Previously (tentatively) titled Somewhere In Between. Also, I noticed some geographical errors (Chapters 1 & 2 were set in/featured details specific to Kent in the South-East of England, and 3 onwards was set in Yorkshire in the North-East). This has now been rectified and the whole story is now set in Yorkshire as a home county. Apologies for the mistake and for any confusion on either count!

    Summary

    More than anything, Mary Lennox fears becoming the same vain, selfish, empty-headed creature as her mother. To prevent this, she runs away from her school in London to join the war effort. As she learns painful lessons through the war, her thoughts linger on her two boys; Colin at school in London and Dickon called up to serve in the war himself, and her secret garden. Life can be cruel and harsh during war, but sometimes it can also give us exactly what we want most.

    Summary

    Quando aveva perso la vista Edward aveva creduto di aver perso tutto, e in un certo senso era stato così.
    Aveva perso la vista, la sua eredità si era praticamente volatilizzata ed era sicuro che se fosse stato più forte si sarebbe certamente ucciso. Non lo aveva fatto … non sapeva bene perché, o meglio non voleva dirlo a voce alta.
