    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.

    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    “It's called hunter green,” the shop assistant tells him cheerfully as she shoves his purchases into a bag.

     

    Valjean, Javert, and yards upon yards of ribbon. That’s it. That’s the entire fic.

    Treat for Esteliel for Trick or Treat 2015. Kind of a coda to empire of dirt, the other fic written for this exchange, or an AU of that AU. You don’t need to read that one if you want to read this one. Title bastardised from Much More from The Fantasticks soundtrack.

    Summary

    Short pieces - more like short films rather than of full stories - revolving around Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne. Some will be canon, some will deviate a little from canon, some will be from completely different universes. Prompts/inspirations can be found in the notes before/after each one.

    Not everything will be posted (because they're less fic than a single image). For the full list, please visit daily dose of superbat on tumblr. Each snippet stands alone (except for Chapters 18 and 20), so read at will.

    Title stolen from a song by Neko Case.

    Summary

    One loose nail in the roof. One moment of betrayal. Starrk learns about the truth of his so-called debt to Aizen. A story about learning to trust again, and the difference one person (two people) can make. Canon AU. Starrk-centric ensemble. Past Aizen/Starrk, eventual Shunsui/Starrk. Also Lilynette/Rukia and Grimmjow/Neliel. See tags for full list of pairings.

    Used to be called 'For Want of a Nail."

    Now temporarily complete! Never to be updated again because Bleach has disappointed, anger, and confused me too many times. I apologise for the hanging threads, but the ending of Chapter 22 should be good enough.

    Summary

    Three years after she was crowned the Queen of Gondor, Arwen finds Boromir in a small village near the Stone of Erech. Finding him seems easy when compared to her new Quest of bringing the Son of Gondor back home. Sort of fulfils this Arwen/Aragorn/Boromir prompt on hobbit_kink.

    Subtitled “An Exploration of the Problems of a Postwar Gondor”.
