    Summary

    The idea behind Preston of the Spaceways: The Holovid was to shake up people’s expectations and make them realize we were doing something different. On Old Earth, adaptations would be called ‘The Movie’ when it was the iconic adaptation, and that’s really what we’re trying to do here: the iconic adaptation

    Works on all levels - it's a convincing piece of worldbuilding as well as a tongue-in-cheek riff off both the Honorverse and sci-fi adaptation cycles.

    She’s been sent on a quest across the desert; no-one has returned before, and there’s no turning back. No allies, either, unless you count Daniel, who used to be her friend before he became one of the Shadows. She’s wondering whether he’ll call the horse back before or after she dies.

    Once upon a time, there was a prince who came near to realizing the truths of the world. The Master of Illusion became aware of it. He called a flower maiden to him and said, “If this prince remains where he is, he will discover that this world is only an illusion. Go to him and lead his mind astray.”

    Summary

    “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” - Albert Einstein

    As murmurs of rebellion travel Panem, an unfortunate 'coincidence' means that every tribute chosen in the Reaping of the 67th Hunger Games just 'happens' to be twelve years old.

    Claudius, the male Career volunteer from District Two, finds the moment he spent his entire life training for tainted as he's now forced into the role of the Capitol's executioner. Lyme, his mentor, refuses to let her tribute go down as the villain.

    Contains massive headcanon about the District Two Career training academy, Career culture, and D2's mentor system. Also Lyme, because apparently no one ever writes about Lyme, and that's a darn shame.

    COMPLETE.

    Summary

    His Dark Materials AU. John and his dæmon, Amarisa, have never quite fit in, largely because she settled as a wolfdog. Sherlock and Raniel are similarly isolated, mostly because the woman they call Mummy is a witch. These two men and their dæmons end up sharing a flat together and the rest, as they say, is history. And with a witch-clan out for John's blood and a man known as Moriarty emerging from the shadows, they're certainly not going to be bored.

     John rather thinks he might have been something else before he was, well, John. A discarded coat, maybe, worn through at the elbows, frayed and stained; or some bright-eyed bird or mammal; or a few inky, smudged sheets of newspaper; or a handful of rich, red clay.

    Mal's latest pair of passengers slowly reveals they have more of a connection to the crew than anyone would have thought, when Simon discovers that Sherlock and his sister had been in the same government program over a decade and a half apart. Sherlock's friend John, his rescuer and keeper, tells the crew the story of living a life on the run, something that is both less and more familiar than anyone expects.
