    Summary

    After, after making that impossible choice and losing all that he cared for – his lover, his friends, his family and the legacy he tried to build in honor of the Doctor – he just could not stomach the thought of living on under the weight of all that guilt. He took the coward’s way out and fled … 21st century Earth clearly did not need or even wanted him around. Earth’s leaders were ready to step up to the plate and accept the responsibility of interacting with extraterrestrial life – they didn’t need a rogue Time Agent turned con-artist turned wannabe hero to run interference for them anymore. As for Gwen, she had Rhys and their child, she was well taken care of and Jack, Jack was a traveler first and foremost somewhere along the way he’d lost sight of that. It’d be good to get out amongst the stars again to see what he could see. This wasn’t a retreat this was a pioneer in search of adventure.

    Okay so it might have been more retreat than adventure hunting.

    Summary

    “But it’s all good, innit,” Eggsy began, teeth worrying his bottom lip. Harry tried his very best not to stare. “If you’s saying I’m a new blood whatever, nobody’s gonna want anythin’ to do with me. Since I’m, like, impure or summat, right?”

    “It is because you are New Blood that you will be desired,” Harry explained gently. “Old Blood is static, predictable, and, well, old. New Blood allows the possibility for new abilities, better offspring. For that, other Wolfkin will literally fight tooth and nail to have a chance to mate with you.”

    “That’s not how it goes in the books,” Eggsy tried a little desperately, the space between his brows creasing.

    “Perhaps, my boy, but unfortunately, this isn’t a fairytale.” Harry sighed, turning his brown eyes towards the night sky. His Wolf howled at the full moon. “This is real life.”

    Eggsy is a New Blood omega, and Harry takes it upon himself to guard the boy’s virtue in honor of the man who saved his life. Though from other Wolfkin or himself, he is not quite sure.

    Summary

    Newt hadn’t talked to the boy, Tom, nearly long enough. His mind worked fast. Later, he would admit that it worked probably too fast.

    “Confundo!”

    The woman stumbled and looked terribly confused and a little dizzy- a bit like a drunk person. “Wha?” she slurred.

    At this point, Newt should have probably said that it was, in fact, visiting hours and that he had every right to be here. What happened instead was:

    “I’m adopting Tom Marvolo Riddle, don’t you remember me?”

    Summary

    In a world which only shows its colours to those who have found their true love, Harry and Merlin are resigned, solitary, middle-aged men with very little hopes left after years of wandering in search of purpose. Harry is a retired professor with a passion for gardening, while Merlin is a disgraced painter - what ambitions could they possibly have? When they become neighbours, however, they discover the beauty life had in store for them all along.

    Summary

    A smutty little story about Sherlock, John, and tea. Short and sweet.

    Edited loosely by author, neither beta'd nor brit picked. So any volunteers would be appreciated!
    This one shot may become slightly longer.

    This was my first and only fan fic.

    Summary

    Merlin's life as a criminal would be far easier if Harry Hart, gentleman and superspy extraordinaire, would just stop getting in his way and leave him be.

    Harry Hart's life as a secret agent would be far more boring if Merlin, supervillain and arch-nemesis, were to stop trying to make the world a better place through reprehensible means.

    Life, of course, already has a plan for them - whether they like it or not.

    Summary

    “I’m just here to assess your name, powers, and how you came in possession of a certain necklace with a golden K, that you’re wearing even now.” He paused to consider the boy’s reaction, and then continued by saying, “If my suspicions are correct…” another pause, shorter, looking for and finding the young man’s eyes, “I’m the one who gave you that medal.”

    Those words took Eggsy by surprise. He remembered the day that medal was given to him… remembered it like it had just happened yesterday even. That was the day his father died. The man that gave it to him he remembered well too, and if not for that memory fresh in his mind he’d have told the man before him to shove it - that he didn’t owe him any answers, especially any involving his powers.

    Things may not have been as bad for mutants nowadays but he was not interested in being one of those out in the open types, and truthfully being in hiding was one of the only places Eggsy really felt safe. But there was something about the tone this Harry Hart took… something in the way Harry’s eyes met his own, and a vague familiarness he couldn’t shake that told him least of all, he should try to trust him.
