    Summary

    His sleeper berth had gone mostly untouched; he had a devil of a time sleeping on trains, even those whose wheels were silent and unmoving as they were borne over the channel on a monstrous ferry. Instead, he’d passed most of the night sipping mediocre coffee from good china and trying to imagine how he was going to survive this most recent fall from grace to ever have anything resembling a good time again.

    Summary

    Fifty-four years ago, the mummified body of King Ahkmenrah was transferred to the New York Museum of Natural History, where the mysterious and priceless golden tablet brought life to the museum - literally.

    Fifty-eight years ago, King Ahkmenrah and his parents were brought to the School of History and Archaeology at Cambridge University, where a professor and former archaeologist discovered the secret of the tablet. The first living human in four thousand years.

    A shame that Rowena Clarke wasn't at all fully human - if you considered a hundred-fifty-four-year-old woman with an issue with death as one. A woman who has died too many times per se.

    Now alongside her, a doctor, a night-guard and a four-thousand-year-old mummy in 2006: things don't entirely turn out as you would expect for a first-night job.

    Summary

    Brilliant, indifferent, thunderous Tom Riddle who was like an explosion happening inside a steel cage. Enigmatic and haunting and probably not worth her time but Florence couldn't look away...

    It's 1944 and Florence Allman is set to debut to the Wizarding Society of the Southeastern United States in less than a year, which means in less than a year she will be eligible for marriage. Except that she's not ready for that, at least not yet. When her father, a wealthy businessman and plantation owner is offered a deal by the British Ministry of Magic to help fight Gellert Grindelwald, Florence accompanies him from Georgia to England where she is to complete her seventh year of magical education at Hogwarts and experience some of life before it's taken away from her forever. Except that she's woefully behind in her studies, and even worse, there's this boy.

    Summary

    "It is possible, yes?"

    Well, yes she supposed it was —

    "Then it's perfect!"

    No, there was nothing perfect about Germany being ordered to get pregnant through any means possible. Seeing Italy as the perfect way to do so, Germany must now find a way to seduce the Italian idiot. With World War II still in full swing, how is she going to pull through this?

    Kink meme prompt. Lots of eventual smut, Italy/Fem!Germany.

    Summary

    This is a collection of short fics I’ve written within the Shades of Magic universe for the August Writer’s Month prompts for 2020. These pieces have all ended up circulating around several AUs -- a modern AU, a 1940s AU, a Victorian AU where Antari are spirit mediums, and some extra pieces in the same Great War AU as Amid the Ruin -- plus a few odds and ends. This collection has everything: fluff, drama, angst, romance, some darkness at the edges to keep it interesting. Since a coherent order is not a thing, I’ll be marking each chapter with whatever storyline it is plus whatever characters appear in it. So you all can pick and choose whichever strikes your fancy!

    CW: I make no guarantees about the content of these chapters. I've outlined all of them, but am essentially writing on the fly. The rating I’ve given reflects the variety of content in here, including some pretty dark stuff and/or nsfw situations. Since the content varies greatly from chapter to chapter, I will be including individual warnings at the top of each chapter, as well as updating the tags as this project goes on! Stay safe and enjoy!

    Summary

    Mira knew then that her mission was now standing on the edge of a knife. The moment she caught his gaze staring at her from across the ballroom, singling her out despite the sea of people between them, she knew. She felt her heart leap to her throat at the sight of those deep, violet eyes watching her with an unreadable expression on his face. Such a perfectly exhibited poker face. He knows. A voice whispers at the back of her mind, causing a chill to run down her spine. Still, she can’t turn her back now.
    Play the role. Act like you belong. She repeated over and over again in her mind as she broke eye contact with the Russian, acting as if he was someone not worthy of her giving the time of the day.
    Mirava Velarios had a mission. And that was to spy on Joseph Stalin—Premier of the Soviet Union. It was a dangerous task. One she knew that could cost her everything. She had spent months mastering a plan to get herself close to the Kremlin. She had also made plans for escape should things go wrong. But what she never thought of adding into the formula of her plans was the complicated and volatile Ivan Braginsky himself. He was relentless in his chase for her and she was just as unyielding to bend.

    Summary

    Britain’s Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) has a daunting mission in 1941. The pilots must ferry thousands of new or repaired aircraft to fields all over the British Isles. The newly formed and first “all women” Ferry Pool at Hamble, near Southampton, has much to prove. They deliver scores of different types of aircraft several times a day, often in less than ideal weather conditions.

    Therese Belivet has just been assigned to Hamble. She knows no one. Fresh from training she finds herself in the deep end. The last thing she needs on her plate is to fall in love, but her striking new commander, Flight Captain Carol Aird, is a delicacy the young pilot finds hard to resist.
