    Summary

    1943. Under the German Occupation Paris is a city blacked-out at night, and dark even on the sunniest days. The rest of France fares no better.

    Andy Sachs and her friends came to Paris in 1938, during the last peaceful fall that the City of Light would know for five years. Several years on, their stay can no longer be termed a 'working vacation.' Andy's begun to see things as they are, instead of the way she'd like them to be, and she's realized that she should've become angry quite some time ago.

    Miranda Priestly came to France in 1918, just after the previous war, and what she rebuilt from ruin is under threat of destruction yet again. She's been aware and angry for a long time, and all the while she's been putting that anger to use. Miranda is someone that the Nazis both hate and fear but whom they dare not attempt to harm, not overtly, anyway.

    Andy's heard of Miranda, but just a mention, and she never guessed at the time what that mention would one day spur into existence.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned; scorning two is a really bad idea.

    I was told to say the following: this story is by turns exciting, funny, and it has a happy ending. There. Tis now said.

    Summary

    (aka 'how to survive endless rebirth with your so-called soulmate')

    Harry and Tom’s souls are tied together. Which is why they’re in this endless loop of rebirth.

    At some point, they stopped caring and just started fucking with people.

    (crack with a hint of seriousness, my specialty)

    Summary

    Poe and Mallory seem set in their ways, but Poe's way includes being bad with talking to women. That's where Mallory comes in. As a "professional," Poe hires Mallory with the hope that she can relax and then get comfortable with talking to women. They both get more than they bargain for in the exchange, though. F/F

    It has been suggested that after his eighth regeneration, the Doctor begins lying about his age. The official explanation is that he has simply lost track. This is a third possible explanation for the discrepancy between his ages in the new and old series.
