  1. Summary

    A fusion of the series "Domestic Adventures" by Tanista with "Ecstasy in Cosmogone" by deepandlovelydark.

    MacGyver has disappeared during a mission, and is presumed dead. His niece Becky believes otherwise, and is determined to find him. Even if she has to go to the ends of the earth.

    Or maybe a bit further below that.

  2. Summary

    In the canon of the classic series, MacGyver was an only child and, apart from his grandfather Harry, had no living members of his family left. But what if there was an older sister, one that had moved away from Minnesota to attend college in the West, got married, and had two kids? This is what life might've been like for Mac if he became legal guardian to his teenage niece, Rebecca Ellen (Becky) Grahme, after she loses her parents and older brother in a car accident. No matter what the challenges and adventures are, good or bad, as family Mac and Becky face them together.

  4. Summary

    Sherlock Holmes and Molly Hooper. Opposites in so many ways, yet possessing a strong attraction to each other. If it's proved true in science, would it be the same for romance? A theory worth investigating for the detective and his pathologist...

    Summary

    The roads in front of you now, no one else will ever know.

    A clean start, they'd promised. After four and a half billion years worth of heartbreak, you'd deserved that much. And it's quiet here, amidst the dark and mushrooms.

    Who will you be, in a place where no one needs saving?

    Summary

    So, what happens when a troubleshooter’s niece moves to the Neath to be with him? Terror? Cannibalism? Madness?

    …fluff. Lots and lots of fluff.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    In my Fallen London/MacGyver series

  4. Public Bookmark 32

    Summary

    This series is a White Collar/Fallen London fusion co-written by Sholio and Frith-in-Thorns. Master lists sorted by both internal chronology and posting date are available at Frith's LJ. (The list below is ordered by internal chronology.)

    Fallen London (the game) is set in a Victorian-era alternate-history London sunk beneath the surface of the ground. And that's really all you need to know. Additional notes on pertinent game mechanics, plot, etc. are available in the notes for each story. Generally speaking the entire series is gen (with occasional hints of canon pairings: Peter/Elizabeth, Diana/Christie) but may occasionally be read in a P/E/N way as well.

    Three decades ago, London was stolen by bats. Dragged deep into the earth by the Echo Bazaar. The sun is gone. All we have is the gas-light of Mr Fires.

    But Londoners can get used to anything. And it's quiet down here with the devils and the darkness and the mushroom wine. Peaceful.

    So welcome. Delicious Friend.

    Summary

    "It was a photograph. It had been recently viewed and therefore not yet hidden away in Sherlock’s photo gallery, and the photograph’s subject lying across the very bed he sat upon glowed hot in his hand, as if come to life. The person had been caught wrestling out of a flurry of bedclothes, arms blurred, eyes crinkled in amusement and pale skin lit by the close proximity of a bleaching flash. John had to remind himself to breathe as he stared. It was the smile; the genuine, trusting, openness that radiated humour, playfulness and utter joy at being photographed; it was a smile he had never seen before on this face of this person, lying half-naked, half sheet-wrapped as he tried to retrieve the phone from the person taking the picture."
    The one where John finds Sherlock's phone and wishes he hadn't.
