    Summary

    He’s a spy. Far from the best one that Marcus Kane trained, but the one who managed to get an invitation for dinner at Mr. Wallace’s estate in Mt. Weather. It’s not his original assignment, but when one recruit falls, the others have to cover more ground.

    There’s an informant who regularly attends these parties, someone who provided the last recruit vital intel until his cover almost blew months ago and he had to flee back to Arkadia. Bellamy doesn’t know much about the informant. Kane said whoever it is would find him but said nothing else about the informant, most likely to protect them in case Bellamy fails and gets caught. The only important clue he has about them is that they cannot seem to get information out any other way. And that tells Bellamy that the informant is watched, which is more than enough information to go on.

    A Spy AU where Bellamy's only assignment is to keep attending Cage Wallace's lavish parties so that Kane's informant can keep slipping him messages, but the mission gets complicated when he falls for his enemy's wife.

    Summary

    “This is my domain, Watson, my realm— my patch, to put it in language you will understand. I am sovereign on this street. It was rather impertinent of you to encroach on my revenues.” He laughed out loud. “Trying to pinch a copper’s purse! I’ll forgive you just for the laughs I’ll get telling that story."

    From the memoirs of John H Watson, MD.
    In Victorian London, a young Sherlock Holmes is the leader of a band of Irregulars whose territory is Baker Street.

    Summary

    Raised in a world that values position above all else, Lady Vex’ahlia Vessar, half-blood daughter of an elven margrave and a human seamstress, has been judged her entire life for the circumstances of her birth. Despite this, she found solace in her family’s visits to Whitestone: a best friend and escape from the expectations of her daily life.

    This year’s trip is different. With her beloved twin brother torn from her side by war and her father busily arranging her marriage to Lord Percival de Rolo, Whitestone feels more like a gilded cage. As Vex’ahlia’s life in Whitestone slowly spirals out of her control and the inner turmoil of the Vessar and de Rolo families begins to bleed to the surface, Vex’ahlia must finally confront her fears and insecurities and choose what her heart truly wants.

    A Perc’ahlia fic about obligations, illicit affairs, and the love in between.

    Summary

    Employed by the French military, Theo Raeken is a native scout sent to spy on the English colonies during the French and Indian War. While on his secret mission, he comes across a sleepy little hamlet of Beacon Hollow, nestled in the Hudson Highlands. Wrapped in superstition and tragedy, the village is home to Scott McCall, who lives a lonely life on the outskirts of town, exiled by suspicion and keeping a few dark secrets of his own. Is this a chance meeting or has fate cast its spell?

    This story reimagines Teen Wolf during the colonial period, mixing history and fiction, and trying to capture the aesthetic of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow -- with a little inspiration from the 1999 movie of the same name.

    Summary

    This is how the longer cases go. They wind him up like a music box, until one day there’s a click and everything falls open and Connor can sing and sing and sing. And thrill with the singing. And come home with empirical proof of his worth as a human being.

    The year is 1890. Connor Stern has been shipped off to newly incorporated Prescott, Arizona, to track down a renowned and evasive raider gang on behalf of local mining interests. His partner in the case is the completely incalcitrant County Sheriff, who’s far more likely at any one time to be finding his way to a bottle than a bandit. His target? Feared outlaw Markus, a man who’s growing increasingly eager to introduce Connor to the business end of a six-shooter gun.

    But Connor’s in luck, because as it becomes evident to all three men that the solutions to their problems are fortuitously linked, Markus must consider the possibility that his headhunter might just have more potential to him as an ally than a corpse.

    You catch more flies with honey, after all...

    Summary

    A multi-fandom Fictober prompt compilation. Your wish is my command, but be careful what you ask for. You just might get it.

    Chapter 19: Heart-stopping, Todomomo

    Todoroki nearly makes it to the hospital exit when a pair of familiar onyx eyes stops him in his tracks. Momo Yaoyorozu is a startling sight outside of her school uniform. Her raven hair is worn down, hidden by the hood of a jacket zipped taut across her chest. Shouto’s first thought is that she must be here to visit someone, like him. His second is that she’s in a wheelchair, and she most definitely sees him as well.

    Summary

    He looked into each of their faces. “Tell all”, he demanded.
    Again, each looked to his fellow, urging his neighbour to repeat the taunts of the lady so that only one received punishment and not all.
    My lord grew impatient with their tardiness. So much so that he loosened his sword and drew it a little ways from its sheath. They shrank back before him as if one body. Their lord’s voice was low, and deadly in its tone.
    “I’m waiting for my answer and I swear by the Cross, if I wait even one minute more, this blade of mine will drink a surfeit of blood this day.”
    None doubted him and a voice, the speaker’s body concealed from the eye of the duke, piped up, “She condemns my lord’s treatment of a son of the church.”
    A harsh, bitter laugh which ended in a snarl passed Kylo’s lips at that.
    “Aye, and she called you a monster”, another voice added.

    Summary

    19th Century AU. Miss Lucy Preston has been warned about accepting an offer of employment at Tempus Manor. Rumours are rife about the man of the house, but she is unafraid. Lucy needs work, as well as a place to hide, if she's honest. Running away to the house on the hill to educate young Iris could be the ideal escape, but perhaps as many secrets lie in the past of the mysterious Mr Flynn as in Lucy's own. Perhaps, in time, they could be each other's salvation.

    Summary

    “What’s your name?”

    Jaehyun’s mouth falls open. Not from the gun pointed directly at his head, but from the lilt of politeness in the Ringmaster’s voice.

    “Jung Jaehyun…”

    The Ringmaster’s mouth twists into a smirk, and as he readjusts the gun in his hand, the metal clicks. Jaehyun gulps.

    “Well, Jung Jaehyun, I’m afraid you have to come with us.”

     

    or: reporter Jaehyun gets kidnapped by a circus and is pulled into a world of danger he never expected.
