    Summary

    Dear Niall,

    I was glad to have the chance to talk with you again at the AHA conference. Your idea that the Musee D’Orsay Tomlinson painting is in fact not a self-portrait is an intriguing one, and I may have discovered something that will have a bearing on that theory.

    Some background: as you may remember, I’ve been researching for a book I’m writing about Harry Styles. I’ve been in communication with Styles’ last living descendant, who is in possession of a trunk that her family believed to have belonged to Styles himself. It held some personal items she presumes to be his, including two unmounted paintings and a small collection of letters.

    Upon spending the last few days in Provins studying these items, I believe there to be a connection between Tomlinson and Styles, and I would very much like your opinion.

    Are you up for a trip to France?

    Sincerely,
    Liam Payne

    Where Liam and Niall are art historians discovering the truth about two nineteenth century painters on opposite sides of an artistic divide.

    Summary

    You will be the person I think about when I’m 45 and I wake up in the middle of the night, beside my wife, whom I have probably not had sex with for at least 2 years. You come, you crash into me, make a mess of me, but I am not enough to disturb you in your course.
    You were made for greater things than I.

    Summary

    Bucky’s clothes rustle when he pulls a pocket knife from his jacket. He eyes the scratchings in the trees before carefully carving his name next to a crude stick figure with a gun.
    “You remember what it was like,” Bucky says, knife still in hand. “Don’t you?”
    Steve thinks of the flat surface of an ocean, the dreams of floating. A lukewarm sea lapping against his knees as he drifted alone. Water dripping off his chin. His eyes opened in a strange bed and a strange world. “Just a little, yeah.”
    Bucky nods. “I don’t feel cold anymore.”
    “I—me too.”

    In the year after they leave the bunker in Siberia, Steve and Bucky find solace in painting, and maybe in the process, relearn how to be around each other again.

    Summary

    Dee - a rare immersive art installation AI - was stolen in an attack on Everett Mordechai, a pharmaceutical tycoon affiliated with the erstwhile Red Dragon Syndicate. At first glance the crime seems incidental, but programmer Gideon tasks himself and what remains of the Bebop with finding her. What they uncover is far from incidental, and the fledgling AI has motives of her own.

    Summary

    "Maybe now that your one tether to this old life is gone, you can move on and allow yourself to find someone. Everyone needs a family to call their own, Willow, just like every boat needs an anchor to not get swept away at sea." 

    Willow Graham regains her privileges as a Special Agent at the behest of Jack Crawford and her newly assigned psychiatrist, Alana Bloom. All is well and good, until the Hobbs case; the facade of composure Will has built to shield herself begins to fracture at the edges. To help her, Dr. Bloom insists on trying different things - and one of those things leaves her alone at a fancy event in a museum, where she stumbles upon a certain distinguished gentleman who insists on becoming her friend.

    But it has been a long, long time since Will Graham had a true friend.

    Summary

    “At least I don't dress like an art student from the 1960s who lives in London and only smokes clove cigarettes while trying to use respectability politics to counter every argument,” Enjolras snapped, invading Grantaire's personal space.
    “Like you have room to talk, you fucker. Your blazer makes you look like a reject from a Target men's catalogue printed only for heterosexuals.”
    “Take that back,” Enjolras gasped. “Nothing about me is designed for heterosexual consumption.”
    “No, and fuck you.”

    also known as the one where enjolras and grantaire apparently get off on bickering very fondly with each other.

    Summary

    After Victor Nikiforov settles into his comfy new Barcelona apartment while taking a break from skating, he goes to many new places, he experiences many new experiences.
    However, out of all of them, his favorite hang-outs is the art gallery near his residence (as he goes nearly every day). Everyone there knows him by name, he knows each painting, sculpture, collage by heart, but after an overly angry guest leaves, Victor slowly begins to discover that change can be for the better.

    Especially when you fall in love with the change immediately.

    The Feltsman Foundation for the Arts has recruited six special agents to fight the war being waged on art.

    Summary

    “The only reason–” George suddenly can’t contain his laughter and needs to take a moment to collect himself. He doubles over for a few long seconds, then straightens up again to wipe an imaginary tear from his eye before continuing. “Oh, lad. The only reason that potion would cause someone to nearly propose marriage is if they were already embarrassingly in love with you.”

    Summary


    ‘We’re a couple!' John burst out, bluntly. His face was nearly twitching with rage. He hadn’t even meant to say anything, to anybody, because he wanted what they had for himself just a bit longer, for a million reasons half-romantic and half-defensive, and yet here he was, gripping Chez Francine’s thick cream tablecloth with enough force to tear it in half, suddenly wanting nothing more than to tell everyone within earshot that Sherlock was absolutely infuriating, surprisingly good at blowjobs, and probably in love with him.

    Summary

    Belgium, 1888. When you were nineteen you were forsaken by queen and country alike (rather a shock, autumn, a letter discovered, and the leaves had fallen and it had begun daily and nightly already to rain) and as such you took the ferry in the navy-royal crush of earlyevening across the tall black water to the continent — to Bruges.

    Summary

    Sam's far from intellectually dim with a score of 174 on the LSATs, so it's not like he doesn't get it.
    To be fair, Sam doesn't get a lot of things: How some people still deny global warming over their daily commute, why it takes someone twenty minutes at a burger drive-thru to place an order, why women still don't have equal pay, why the earth is round, but this is just a matter of overanalyzing on his part.

    Summary

    Rarely, if ever, does life work out just like you plan it. Konoha Akinori set out in life to be the best at… something. Potentially (but as of yet unproven to be) the world’s foremost expert on Picasso’s Blue Period, he finds his life a bit… stalled. Not only did the path that led him to his expertise leave more than a few marks, it turns out a PhD in Art History doesn’t exactly help you get a real job outside of academia. But there is one good thing going for him: he has found the city’s best café. And the first face he ever saw there was Hinata Shouyou’s.

    Or, Konoha is grumpy and frequently flustered, Hinata is a cheeky fucker, and the allusions to background ships are Just Delightful (if I do say so myself).

    Summary

    Abstract: The Car'dasan School was an extremely influential art movement in the post Clone Wars era of the Republic. However, the identity of the patron who anonymously commissioned the initial works of the school has never been positively determined. This article presents new evidence from the recently released Daylight Act Files, which may shed some light on this significant historical mystery.
