    Summary

    When he did come back to life, gasping and shooting up out of the familiar cot in the Waverider’s med bay, he was more confused and startled than anything. People, the Legends, they were standing around him, asking him a million questions he didn’t have an answer to. During their interrogations, he learned that apparently, his consciousness was floating throughout the time stream, and Gideon had happened to pick up on it. He didn’t know how they got his body back, and he was frankly too overwhelmed to ask at this point.

    Overwhelmed. That’s a new one. Turns out, after a few months not feeling anything, when you finally do feel again, it’s stronger than you ever experienced in your life. He liked to think he was pretty in control of his emotions, that he only showed what he wanted to show. But that was before he died. Now, sitting here, being surrounded and doted on, he felt many things. Claustrophobic, for one. Scared. Confused. Sad… He missed Lisa. He missed Central. He wanted to go home. He felt vulnerable. He wanted to cry.

    Summary

    Mary Bennet agrees to spend the London season with the newly married Darcys. She discovers that she would still infinitely prefer a book. But hiding in the library at balls and parties is not the solution, as an odd young man keeps turning up there.

    “'Miss Bennet', she says. I did not know my Conscience would have such an ordinary name.”

    “I am not your conscience, sir,” Mary said, feeling made fun of and annoyed to be shaken out of her reverie for nonsense. “And whimsicality such as this, whilst charming in a child, is not so appealing in a grown man.”

    “Wait,” he said. “Do wait. I am so used to speaking in that silly way with silly young women that I quite forgot myself. Please stay and talk a little more.”

    (from the prompt "Mary's season in London. Her moralising is a trial to her sisters but in the end she outshines them all.")

    ETA Thank you to Prinzenhasserin for helping me bounce around some ideas, and to Burglebezzlement for the offer of betaing!

    Summary

    Jace’s hair is slicked back, his composure is perfect, and he looks every inch the FBI agent he apparently really is, kitted out in his bulletproof vest with his gun in his hand as he gestures with the other at some point on a map. Simon wants to cling to him and never let go, and he also wants to shatter a vase over Jace’s head or something equally dramatic.
    .
    Simon falls onto his new neighbor, falls in love, and falls into the middle of an undercover FBI operation. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Pure fluff for the 5+ AU Headcanons game.
