    Summary

    The Force equalised all. The Force took no sides. Baze knew all that.

    But Baze had learned from Ah Qi long ago: service must be repaid. If not, then those who served had no recourse but to be helpless fools.

    And Chirrut was no fool.

    The twisting darkness of devotion; the strangling desperation of faith. Baze and Chirrut through the years.

    (What does it truly mean to go where he goes? The answer: intense co-dependency.)

    Summary

    But it was not the way the child walked that made her grip the handle of her fan until the ivory pressed against her bones through skin and flesh. It was the child’s eyes.

    They were wide, and blank, and staring straight ahead, unfocused. They were the precise shape and colour of her father’s; of her own. 

    A story of a mistress and her slave. A story of sisterhood.

    Martha Wayles Jefferson and Sally Hemings in the 1700s.

    Summary

    Reaching out, Baze took Chirrut’s hand. He pressed it over his heart and said, stumbling and halting in Cantonese, “Can’t you feel my heart beating in tandem with yours?”

    Chirrut’s fingers curled inwards, nails scraping over Baze’s black robes. He stepped closer, and his face tucked into the crook of Baze’s neck.

    He said, “It isn’t enough.”

    Words on their bones kept distance between them. Their city fell apart, again and again.

    But they would learn to stand amidst the clouds, nonetheless: first on the unsteady wings of swallows, then with wings of their own making.

    Summary

    The ink on the contract had barely dried and Jefferson was lingering at the door. Angelica had taken her to a corner. Her calluses rasping over Sally’s cheek, she had murmured, “You deserve a reward,” with soft heat coiled tight around her tongue and breath ghosting over Sally’s ear.

    “No,” Sally had told her then. Her fingertips had trembled over Angelica’s lips, her heart wrenching at the sight of that pride and desire wrapped up in night-dark eyes, turned towards her. “Not yet.”

    Sharp stones on the path of healing. Coda to a fever of the mad.

    Summary

    Thomas was playing the role of a wife, taking liberties that were not his and fitted ill in his tanned hands. But his hands were paler now, and he had given his body in return, so surely it was a fair trade. Surely this was not theft.

    One morning, Thomas Jefferson woke up in Dolley Madison’s body, and she in his. The year was 1801.

    (A story known to no one. No ones with their own names and stories of their own.)

    Summary

    you have learned love but not self-consciousness, because love does not beget self. there’s no need for heart and body to love; no need for mind or soul though you have both, programmed for one and grew the other like a struggling sprout in a crack on the pavement, just for him, just like him.

    The Passenger and the Computer, in the midst of the all black everything. Time once more has meaning, and humanity must be redefined.

    Summary

    ‘Charlie’ was for his family, before he became a disappointment; ‘Charles’ for after he transmogrified. ‘Ben’ was meant for the club, and then Madison took it and coiled his tongue around the sound to make it his own. He hadn’t been an ‘Adams’ in years.

    There was not a single name left in his hands that had not been dirtied somehow, filled with the stench of memories from the deep swamp he had tried to bury them all in.

     

    Charles Adams in the wake of James Madison. Coda to a fever of the mad.

    Summary

    In Monticello, there was a ghost, and James knew her. She had brown eyes and burnt-sienna curls, a cackling laugh too loud to be polite, and long fingers that looked strange against her petite figure. She had a grace unmatched, half-danced more than she walked, and she would twirl in the middle of the street just because she felt like it. When she smiled…

    Thomas’s world continued to turn.

    Mistakes made and scars left by the dead. Coda to a fever of the mad.

    Footsteps. Thomas tips his head up, his lips parting when a hand slides through his hair. Broad palm, heavy fingers, smooth thumb tracing the corners of his mouth. Floorboard creaking.

    Summary

    So we just hold on fast / Acknowledge the past / As lessons exquisitely crafted / Painstakingly drafted / To carve us as instruments / That play the music of life.

    Once, there was a revolution that started for the sake of one man. But revolutions do not end after a day; a country could not be rebuilt based on changing a single law.

    Still, this revolution is led by those who have looked upon history and learned from it; by those who looked upon the faces of those who suffered and said, no more. And so change comes: slow, halting, meeting with obstacles every turn, but utterly inexorable.

    Sequel to all sinners crawl, covering the 18 years that passed between the ending of the fic and Epilogue 2. Please don’t read this before reading all sinners crawl, because nothing will make sense. Posting is complete..

    Summary

    While heading for the Seine, Javert was diverted by a situation that rapidly spiralled out of control. Collar, chain, and Jean Valjean: he wishes that he reached the river after all.

    He walked over to Valjean’s chair and fell to his knees and bowed his head.

    “I am not a guest in your home,” he said, low and deliberate. “Master.”

    Dystopian AU slavefic based upon the Dallas 2014 production, with characterisation and events based upon the same and shaken with very liberal splashes of Brick. Primarily worldbuilding, plot, and character development, with the slash happening as a byproduct. Fic has completed posting in its entirety.

    Title taken from Demons by Imagine Dragons. Subtitled "A Treatise on the Role of the Law in the Dispensation of Mercy and Justice."

    Summary

    In the Bible, it was written: “Therefore shall love be to give joy and to take pain, and blessed all be those so granted by the LORD.”

    Summary

    “…they left the kingdom together: the guardian with coarse hands and his sweet-hearted charge; the spider who spun sunlight, the horse who captured moonlight in his mane, and the howling wolf with stars for fangs.”

     

    Take Catskin, take The Firebird, and take the philosophies on morality and governance from the Brick. Shake vigorously and well. Pour into glass and top a mixture of Hugo’s writing style mixed with that of fairytales. Served to kikibug13 for the Les Misérables Halloween Exchange 2015, as well as any other guests.

    Summary

    “Don’t go into the forest,” the locals warn you, their eyes darting from side to side. “The Devil lives there. You won’t recognise him, because he changes forms every time. The forest changes too. It’s the Devil’s work.”

    Take the Tam Lin fairytale, take the Brick, and shake. Pour into glass and garnish with allusions historical, literary, and religious. Serve to kikibug13 for the Les Misérables Halloween Exchange 2015, as well as any other guests.
