    An origin story for the Frank and Doug's professional relationship—surprising, moving, and also a bit chilling when you realize just how true it is that there's no one more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose.

    These are the last thoughts of Adelmo of Otranto - as I imagine them, that is.

    To my recipient: I just can't write too explicit male slash, sorry. Still I tried my best to write a story for you which you will really enjoy. I really hope you will like it.

    A warning to all other readers: This story is a dark introspective first-person back-story of a minor character, not a PWP. Still it contains hinted-at slash scenes between catholic (!) monks.

    ...summary? Is that like a recap page? Huh. Okay. I'm Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. You may remember me from such comics as "Deadpool," "Deadpool," and "Cable & Deadpool," and from my brief appearance in Wolverine's first solo movie, which for now makes me Marvel's latest license to print money -- thank you, Ryan Reynolds. Anyway, now I'm in a Yuletide story, so join me and my buddy Nate Summers, aka Cable, for wacky hijinks and reality-hopping adventure. Say hi to the fangirls, Nate.

    The Wimsey family at the end of the Great War, captured through letters and the diary of the inimitable Dowager Duchess of Denver. All the characterisations are absolutely spot-on, and it's both funny and moving.
