    Summary

    "Xie [...] had invented an entire pleasure-industry by combining superior visual aesthetics with impeccable personal attention. Drasha salons were by that time a feature of any even half-decent house of repose in every pleasure district in the British Isles, but once upon a time, when Xie debuted, there had been only one, and Xie had named it: the Icehouse."

    *
    In a contemporary dystopia, Unity is peace--despite the fact unsanctioned information, illicit currency, and every sort of danger flows unchecked in the world's pleasure districts.

    John Watson, a weary hired gun, is assigned by the mysterious Mentor to investigate a subversive element lurking in the Icehouse, the world's most famous House of Repose. As accustomed as he is to dealing with the unexpected, John is nevertheless woefully unprepared to meet the gem of the Ice house, Xie, the world renowned "drashaskaya," the living work of art after which all other drashas are modeled.

    In sumptuous suites, amid trailing puddles of silk and fervent whispers in the night, John soon learns that nothing is as it seems in the floating world of London's pleasure district.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    wonderfully dreamy, steamy but eerily so, not for everyday consumption

    Summary

    Everything changes during seventh year.

    One evening, Hermione Granger catches Draco Malfoy out after curfew in the library, reading the famous works of William Shakespeare. His new-found respect for Muggle literature leads to a series of bizarre interactions between them that permanently alters their fundamental understanding of each other and, in Draco's case, turns his whole belief system on its head.

    Summary

    After May 31, I was a bit wrecked from seeing all the setlock pictures from Mount Stuart Square and the supposed drug-rehab / mind palace scenes with a very scruffy and exhausted looking Sherlock. So – whatever might have actually happened in those scenes – I decided to do something about that and to send the boys back home to Baker Street, let them have a bath and a shave. Well, some smut happened.

    Summary

    After Narcissa Malfoy makes a deal with the Order of the Phoenix for protection and for a probational dismissal of charges regarding her son's role in the death of Albus Dumbledore, Draco Malfoy returns to Hogwarts for a seventh year. Disgraced, reckless, and resentful, Draco decides to pursue a long-time desire for Hermione Granger. What begins as a loveless series of trysts wherein Hermione tries to ease the pain of Ron's apparent indifference soon becomes inevitably complicated. With Harry off searching for Horcruxes and Ron still lacking the courage to pursue her, Hermione finds herself becoming increasingly and inexplicably attached to a boy she believes can never love anyone, least of all her. She believes this so firmly, in fact, that the significance of the subtle changes in Draco's behavior may not become evident to her before their secret relationship is discovered.
