    Summary

    With the end of World War I, a new era was born. An era full of glitz and glamour. Life was a seemingly never-ending party. Magnus Bane is a distant relative of the royal family. He has a title, wealth, a penchant for extravagance and he never gets tired of getting himself into trouble. He´d travelled the whole world in order to see and learn new things, only interested in parties, excesses and adventures behind your wildest imagination. At least that´s what most people think. But in reality, Magnus tries to escape his past and the unsolved mysteries surrounding the tragic events of his childhood. As Magnus decides to return home to New York after years of travelling, he doesn´t only find a new adventure in solving mysterious murders as a private investigator, but he also finds new friends and partners in Detective Inspector Alec Lightwood and his police constable Simon Lewis. The more time he spends in New York, the more he finds himself a new home, and with his new home, he forgets about the past that haunted him for so long. But that doesn´t mean that his past has forgotten him as well. Will Magnus be able to solve the greatest murder case of his life, or will he just end as a murder victim himself?

    Summary

    Solbin lifts the hand holding her compass and attempts to throw it overboard. She watches her compass obey the laws of gravity and disappear into the ocean with a small splash. The compass reappears in her hand and she throws it again, this time her compass doesn't even make it the water before it finds itself back in hand her once more.

    Solbin keeps throwing the metal out her grasp, each time making her cry even more. She lifts her arm for last time, burning from overexertion when warm fingers softly clasp around her wrist.

    ”Your compass will always return to you when you feel like you've lost it,” a man calmly says. "It will always be with you as long as you are thinking about it."

    OR

    All aboard the S.S. Tang! The soulmate AU in which everyone is gifted a compass on their eighteenth birthday that points them in the direction of their soulmate.

    Summary

    He: the butler's son. His life isn't drudgery, but he doesn't have anything extravagant, either. The one luxury he grows to have is a close-knit friendship with someone far outside his league.

    She: the earl's daughter. She will grow up, and the ordinary fate for a woman of her status will await her. As a child, she only has the freedom of befriending the butler's son.

    In short, this is the Downton Abbey-inspired AU that I have nursed for ages and am finally bringing to life :D
