    Summary

    The insight hits him like a taser to the torso, fifty thousand volts straight through his skin: Illya is afraid. Well, no, that’s not quite right. Illya is uncertain, and he doesn’t like to act unless he knows what he’s doing. Suddenly the stop-start with Gaby makes sense, the fumbles and flinches and eventual resignation that nothing would happen. Illya hates incompetence, hates it most in himself, and will never move to expose a weakness.

    “Stand up,” Napoleon says again, and this time there’s a hint of a tremble in it. “And come here.”

    Summary

    Companion piece to 'But Somehow Through the Storm' in which Arno visits Napoleon on Elba following Josephine's death. In the light of my previous work, this could technically suggest that the two only ever seem to hang out on islands, but what the hell.

    Summary

    "What sort of aggression is it then?" Eggsy asks, cutting right to the heart of the matter.

    Harry knows even before he hears the response. Knows because even as Merlin is saying, "It appears to affect sexual responses. Activating latent desire and cranking up the subject’s sex drive whilst simultaneously increasing pheromone production," Harry is thinking primarily of the distance between himself and Eggsy and how very few steps it would take to be within range to push the boy to the floor and pin him there.

    Summary

    Killing and dying are nothing at all, except when it comes to Steve Rogers. Pathetic.

    Summary

    “It is said that Tiresias went blind because he saw Athena naked.”

    Arno again lifts his head as far as he can, glaring at the neck of the man who is now currently running his hands over the tops of his shoulder blades, the muscles more tightened and prominent through the stress they’ve been put under. His voice, strained with stretching his neck, is low and harsh and deep with angry aspiration.

    “De Sade, if you don’t stop with that scholarly shit—”

    “You’ll do what, sweetheart? Your hands are rather occupied at present.”

     

    Marquis de Sade believes Arno needs someone to give him a little frivolity. He is of course, more than apt for the task.
