    Summary

    "Iolo, you've gone and got yourself trapped," Poe smiled sympathetically. "You sound like a husband and you haven't even signed the papers."

    "Well," Iolo shrugged, an idea slowly forming. "At least I have someone to holler at me. While here you stand, heading off to Havana all alone."

    Summary

    He doesn't think about those familiar dark eyes staring numbly into his own. He doesn't think about the remnant staleness of sake on his breath. He doesn't think about the cup with which he had to share wine; he doesn't think about the rim in which their lips shared drink.

    He does not think about his husband.

    Summary

    The year is 1333. The English are at war with Scotland. 19-year-old West Country knight Sir Steven excels at jousting, but yearns to prove himself in real action. So he jumps when his sponsor, Baron Alexander Pierce, invites him on a secret mission with a dozen elite knights. They ride north to a crumbling Scottish keep, capturing the feral, half-starved boy within and putting the other inhabitants to the sword. And nobody knows, or nobody is saying, why the flower of English knighthood snuck over the border to capture a savage, dirty teenage boy. Pierce gives the boy to Steve as his squire, with only two rules: don't let the boy escape, and convert him to the English cause.

    At first, it's hopeless. The Scottish boy is surly, violent, hoards sharp objects, and eats anything that isn't nailed down. Then Steve begins to notice things: that, as well as Gaelic, the boy speaks flawless French, far better than Steve's own. That he can read it – Latin, too. That he isn't small so much as desperately under-fed. That when Steve finally convinces the boy – James Buchanan, Bucky – to cut his filthy, matted curtain of hair, the face revealed is the most beautiful thing Steve has ever seen.

    Necessary.

    Or, at least, that's how it starts...

    Summary

    A compilation of prompt based one shots which were previously only posted on tumblr. No particular order or theme besides that of focusing on the Detective and Pathologist that we so adore. :) (ratings might vary slightly from chapter to chapter, but an overall rating of T, just to be safe)

    Summary

    “Don’t be afraid.” The performer knelt next to the pillory and removed his red shawl from his shoulders, using it to wipe away the tomato and egg mixture that had dried on Estienne’s cheek. “I’m sorry. This wasn’t supposed to happen.”

    Summary

    “Zor-El, we have a daughter,” Alura tearfully said, cradling the baby close as her husband reached out to stroke the child’s cheek with a shaking hand.

    “She is beautiful,” Zor-El murmured. “And fair. She will be beloved by all, and so her name shall be Kara.”

    The High Priestess approached the end of the bed, and the king and queen looked at her as she spoke, for the words of the High Priestess were treated with the utmost respect and importance.

    “She has been kissed by the sun.”

    Summary

    “I heard rumour that William Fly is swinging from a gibbet in Boston harbour. They say the age of piracy is ending,” Steve utters softly, rubbing the tip of his thumb across his lower lip.
    Sam glances at him. “You got plans to retire, Cap? Find a nice little beach in the Indies and a good supply of rum? Couple of pretty girls in grass skirts to dance for you.”
    “Sam,” Steve mumbles, covering his face with his hand.
    “I’m sorry, a couple of pretty boys?” Sam grins wickedly.
    “Sam!” Steve looks scandalised, which gets him nothing but laughter from his Quartermaster. “You’re fired. Go throw yourself overboard this instant.”

    Summary

    When Merlin's lecturer Gaius hands him an obscure book on the clans of the Welsh borders, he has no idea how much it will change everything. After the book sends him back in time to a medieval castle, he has to contend with sword fights, surly warriors, and the clan's confusing and irritatingly good looking chieftain, Arthur.

    A silly romp taken half seriously, with vague levels of historical accuracy, strange magic and a dose of romance...

    Summary

    When King Marcus becomes the King of England through questionable terms, no one is happy about it. When he begins overtaxing his subjects to the extent where no one can afford to eat, James T. Kirk and his friends decide that something must be done about it.

    Living as outlaws in Sherwood Forest, they make it their mission to "rob from the rich, and give to the poor" and to find a way to save the country from King Marcus's tyrannical ruling.

    (So, basically the Star Trek Robin Hood AU that nobody asked for, but I made.)

    Summary

    The taste of roses flooded Jyn's mouth as the dead spirit claimed her body. It turned her sorrow into a living thing, feeding off of the grief from her mother's death. Caught between the spirit world and the living, she wandered the moors, a restless spirit by day, a haunted woman by night.

    Cassian's home is the sea, amid his rough crewmen and the blue plains of the water stretched out before him. But when his ship is taken out of commission for repairs, he returned to Festfield Hall, his inherited estate he wants nothing to do with since the ghosts of his parents took up residence in the hallways and lingered in the shadow-webbed corners.

    Then he found Jyn, another ghost to plague him, dressed only in a white shift that did nothing against the cold and the rain that made her teeth chatter loud enough for him to hear. She was filthy, hair matted and eyes wild, more beast than human, but he slid his coat off anyway and wrapped it around her.

    And a single petal was shed from the rose of sorrow that had become Jyn's heart.

    Summary

    The two stared at each other, unmoving.

    Shops and houses lined either side of the road. Settlers peered carefully from windows and through cracks in doors, anticipation thick in the air.

    Two shots pierced the silence.

    Summary

    They've made it. Your champions have reached you and they've accepted their glorious burden. Now it is time for you to teach them. About their new responsibilities, their powers, their Country... and you.

    ~

    "My fire. . . can still hurt people."

    "With the power you have now... that's always going to be a possibility."

    ~

    He narrows his eyes at you and you smile when they briefly flash white. That smile drops when he says, "Black lace. Nice."

    You flush and gather your blanket closer around you as you throw a book at him.
