    Summary

    "Suffering is permanent, obscure, and dark; and shares the nature of infinity."
    -William Wordsworth

    - - - ✄ - - -

    Following a bizarre and devastating family tragedy, resilient Y/N attempts to gather up the scattered remnants of her life and relocates to the city of London in search of new opportunities and a fresh start. The reality of her new home, however, was far less picturesque than what she'd imagined. Not only riddled with sickness and poverty, the cobblestone streets of 1890's London were also ripe with something else-- murder. Through a series of events (equally fortunate and unfortunate) our young protagonist finds herself tangled up in the sordid lives of six individuals, and subsequently becomes ensnared in their web of unfathomable horrors and arcane mysteries beyond the realm of humanly knowledge. All, of course, beginning with a chance encounter with a certain young mad scientist.

    Summary

    Takes place season 3×02 thru comics era and further. Canon divergence throughout comics era and acts as a "season 5" to Victor and Henry's storylines.

    Roelia Deopham was a name Victor hadn't heard since leaving university, so when he entered a so called alchemist's laboratory, he didn't expect the woman seated at the desk to be the same chipper, confident woman from his early years into the sciences. Her assistance proves valuable, but her entanglements in the underground society of alchemists prove to be more than just visiting a friend for Victor.

    Summary

    It was such a cursed existence that he had refused to grant his son this bastardized form of immortality, and yet, John Clare could not help the thought that continued to be at the forefront of his mind: that there was still a way to save Vanessa Ives yet. He did not know the full extent of her pain, but he felt that they were, in a way, kindred spirits in that respect, and that certainly she deserved more than to have her life cut so short. He only slightly faulted the man responsible; he was sure in the moment, he had done what he had believed was necessary. And so with these thoughts in mind, John Clare set out to do what he believed to be necessary, to right the wrong that was a world without Vanessa Ives in it.

    Summary

    An American Gods / Penny Dreadful cross-over.

    Swept through a powerful energy vortex, Sweeney and Laura Moon have been transported to the past.

    Summary

    It was done.

    Vanessa was dead, his birth father was dead, his Apache father was on a ship back to his land, and his chosen father was planning a new expedition: to the Alps in search of consolation.

    Ethan found himself lost between the house that was lent to him and the streets in search of mindless work to keep him busy. It was during one of these anxious strolls through London that he came across a known place. The apartment complex of someone he could possibly consider a friend.

    Summary

    There are no days under the earth, only a solemn and eternal twilight, but Caliban thinks it is morning when she comes to visit. She walks among the rows of the dying with a straight-necked calm, as if this graveyard were nothing more than a park, and administers food and water with kindness and patience.

    Her name is Vanessa Ives, and she is pale, so pale, such that Caliban thought she was also a dead thing at first glance.
    --
    Vanessa and Caliban in the calm before the storm.

    Summary

    Did you ever wonder how John Clare became who he was? How Victor Frankenstein made him 'his creature'? And who he was before Penny Dreadful?
    Well since there is a brilliant new Mini-series called Quacks ( https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/quacks/) - featuring again the wonderful and brilliantly Mr. Rory Kinnear as Robert Lessing, I really loved the thought of - what if...?
    What if someone would crossover these two amazingly series which are both set in Victorian London?

    Summary

    "You will never be alone again," he promises. "I will love you till time has lost all meaning."

    "Yes," she says, baring her throat to him, to Dracula.

    "Do you accept me?"

    "I accept myself."

    She smiles as he kisses her neck, smiles as he bites her, smiles as he drinks her blood. He doesn't know better than to trust a trickster, than to let the poison of the Scorpion inside his veins.
