    Summary

    After his breakup with Beth, Adam finally found a new job. That it was in Bucharest, across the world from everyone he knows, was both a blessing and a curse. Everything familiar was gone, he would need to rewrite his entire existence, but at least he would no longer have to deal with his awkward friendship with Beth, or the way everyone always stared at him. He had no idea he would be moving in just down the street from the headquarters of a gang that ran most of Bucharest's seedy underbelly. Nigel didn't question any of Adam's quirks, and the rules he lived his life by might be just what Adam needed to balance his life back out.

    Summary

    “What's the job?”

    “Nothing to stretch the limits of your talents, just distracting Jim Gordon until I say so.” One feral dog to cage another.

    Zsasz refused to rise to the bait and bristle at the deliberate provocation in Mario’s tone, regarding him as blankly as the space between the stars. “You don't want me to…” He tilted his head significantly, tongue clicking lightly against his teeth, “...take the competition off the board for you?”

    Summary

    Freshers’ Week: as much an idiotic-bordering-delusional social ritual as Mycroft had always informed him it would be. Joining in was irrefutably out of the question for Sherlock, who only wanted to get stuck into his degree work as soon as possible.

    Until, by a clumsy act of fate on the first night, he bumps into a certain John Watson who spikes his interest in a way he doesn't yet fully understand... Perhaps a bit of partying wouldn't be so bad after all. And if it just so happened to result in more time spent around John, well, Sherlock certainly wouldn't be complaining.

    Summary

    Life in a mental health care facility could get pretty boring after a while. When a new mystery named Connor Stern waltzed right in, with his soft brown eyes and stilted personality, Hank soon found himself wrapped up in a man who had secrets that might be best left alone, and a conspiracy that might just be the death of him.

    ~XoxoxoxoxoxoX~

    When Connor failed his mission to kill activist Markus Manfred, he was sent to a mental facility by request of the very man he had tried to kill.

    In a whirlwind of emotion, Connor somehow befriended (and fell in love with) his grouchy, suicidal roommate, learned what it meant to be human, and stopped a massive government conspiracy designed to control the population. All in a day’s work, really.

    Summary

    Clint is only a couple of sips into his cardboard cup of coffee, his brain barely out of neutral, which is probably why it takes him so long to realize that some damn psycho is trying to kidnap his dog.

    Summary

    "Your life is not your own."

    "Your life is not yours to choose."

    Two alternate people from a multitude of different worlds, and yet the same.

    On January 29, 2016, Sherlock Holmes tries to commit suicide by jumping into the Thames before being saved by a young woman he met by chance. The wounds by John Watson in the morgue only remind the Sherlock of his failed self, and of the deep deception that succeeded in protecting his true self from the other people: a self-medicating addict, prone to depression, suicidal thoughts, and low self-esteem. He knows that he has always been a fuck up.

    "I know what's like to be treated like that."

    Since the morgue, his body remembers even if his mind wants to forget and blame it on himself. For some reason, Sherlock Holmes is afraid of John Watson, even as he still desperately loves him. And John Watson doesn't understand what he did wrong.

    It seems that the only person who understands is the woman who is trying to save him.

    But do they all, all these actors in this tragedy, want to endure the journey in order to live again?

    Summary

    “What’s yer name?”

    The woman spat onto the tarred rooftop. “Raph.”

    Yondu snickered, “Raph? What kinda name’s Raph fer a woman?”

    The woman took a long drag from the cigarette between her grubby, cut up fingers, “What kinda name’s Yondu? Ya red-eyed freak.” Her tongue poked out to lick her split lip, and she sighed, “Ya’ll got any water or what?”

    Summary

    Steve wondered when he’d gotten so goddamn stupid. Probably the exact moment Billy had first kissed him; all the brain cells had flown right out of his ear. Billy Hargrove was definitely the worst thing that had ever happened to him, he decided.

    Summary

    What if you took all the negative characters from Jane Eyre and turned them nice? What if the madwoman was not mad? What if there was more to Miss Ingram? What if something else happened the night of Richard Mason's visit? And what if Grace Poole got to tell her part?

    Written from POV of Grace Poole and Blanche (Bianca here) Ingram. Like in Wide Sargasso Sea, Bertha is called Antoinette. Some original characters feature, but only in minor parts. Millcote is called what it is - Leeds. If Yorkshire is famous for something to come out of here, then why should it be erased? (Also, Leeds is cool.) This is not an anti-Jane Eyre fic (though she features little) but it's definitely not a Rochester-friendly fic. Enjoy!

    Summary

    As much as Alice has been through, she would appreciate nothing more than a rest. Years after Bumby's death and her own at the hands of Jack Splatter, she still exists between the worlds, having become nothing more than a fairy tale in the eyes of many.
    She's content if it means she would be left alone. All until a chance encounter with one who called himself the Boogeyman.
    Meanwhile, the Guardians grow concerned as it seems Pitch is returning much faster than before. His Nightmares are multiplying at a rapid rate and some of them are even growing immune to Sandy's saving.
    Could it be connected to the Liddell girl who appeared so suddenly asking for their help?

    Summary

    Adora tries a new strategy to relieve some of the emotional toll that fighting with Catra inflicts: running away.

    From mountains to woods, snows to the sea, Adora turned tail and ran like a damn coward every time Catra even showed a hair. Catra assumed that she was ducking her responsibility for ruining their friendship, which only frustrated Catra even more. Scorpia had a different take, treating it like a victory: proof that Adora truly feared Catra and her strength. So why did it feel like a punishment?

    A series of key moments in Catra and Adora's relationship throughout the war, its ending, and the aftermath.
