    Summary

    "I'll stitch you up when you are back to consciousness" she mumbled, completely wrapped up in the dressing of the wound. So much so that she did not notice the voice that addressed her, at first.

    A female voice with a very distinct American accent. The voice sounded exhausted, parched, low, but strong.

    "If you're talking to me, you're going to have to speak English sweetheart"

    Caitlyn's eyes widened as she looked up from dressing the wound and cerulean eyes found the greyest ones she had ever seen, sending a rush through her that she was unfamiliar with. 

    Then, Caitlyn spoke. 

     English this time, laced with a light French accent.

     "I told you your wound would need to be stitched up when you were to wake" she simply informed her, ignoring how heart her started pounding yet again.

    or

    During the summer of 1943, Caitlyn rescues US Air Force pilot Violet McAdams from a plane wreck in the French country side, and decides to hide her on her farm to allow her wounds to heal properly.

    Neither of them in prepared for the romance that follows this foolish, yet courageous decision.

    No importa cuántas personas tengan que morir.

    Summary

    Life as a princess isn’t what people fantasise. As first in line to the throne, there were things Sansa dreamed to do but never could, and things she never wanted to do but needed. Rules, duties, roles to be fulfilled… Her father had taught her to put the crown before everything in her life, and if she hadn’t learnt that lesson before, she needed to now. Marrying Jon Targaryen was never in her plans, but Sansa needed him as much as he needed her.
    All she wanted was to love him and to be loved back.
    Nothing more than that. Nothing less.

    Summary

    Los Angeles, 1946. A time when crime is blossoming like a rose with sharp thorns. Some bank robberies caused by the eager for money company of youngsters, seasoned with stolen military morphine and adding a pinch of high-profile "The Blue Morpho" cases — and we have a mix that refrains the valiant unit members from having a single minute of peace at the diner without hurrying off to another crime scene.

    At the diner…

    …or at the favourite bar.

    "Chloe Price, loser detective by day and drunky by night"

    Summary

    “We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

    Northern New Mexico, 1946. Many things have ended. Several things linger.

    Summary

    Be on guard, my Lord, writes Abraxas Malfoy, the new transfer student intends to kill you.

    Except Abraxas has terrible penmanship, and kill and kiss look awfully similar in shoddy cursive.

    Naturally, things escalate. A lot.

    Summary

    A sudden thought struck him, one he probably shouldn't entertain. It was only asking for trouble, the worst sort of curiosity, definitely a bad—

    “Merry, look up Sanji Black.”

    “No results,” Merry responded, the pleasant lilt of her computerized voice frank as she delivered the news.

    Zoro frowned, shifting in his seat. “That’s Sanji, S-A-N-J-I, Black,” he hesitated, failing to conjure any more complicated metaphors, “like the color.”

    “No results,” Merry reiterated, awaiting his next clarification.

    “Black comma Sanji,” he hazarded, reordering the name.

    “No results.”

    But he'd just spent the evening with Sanji, and there hadn't been any indication that he'd lied about his name. How was it possible that he didn't exist?
