    Summary

    Finding Stephen Stanley had been easy.

    A quick trial run confirmed Charles would need to go through a telephone operator, a company receptionist, and a personal receptionist before he reached Stanley himself. A phone call wouldn't quite cut it though, would it? Too easily dismissed, a connection broken without a thought and forgotten. In the end Charles hand-delivered a note, and a gift. Stephen Stanley seemed like he might appreciate something physical.

    Summary

    Edward wakes up with a mouth like a badger's arse, a bastard brewing behind the eyes, and someone pounding on his hotel door. 

    In bed behind him, Dundy farts expressively before rolling over and knocking a bottle of Jack Daniels with only dregs of brown left in it off the end of the mattress. The glass thunks onto the carpet with a wet clonk. That'll be a cleaning fee. Another cleaning fee. 

    Tom's going to kill them.

    Summary

    The sun was gloriously warm, like a lover's embrace - soothing the memory of the cruel, biting Arctic cold. A thousand sparks of silver light danced on the pale blue water whose waves lapped at the sand, then stretched out and darkened where the ships were anchored in deeper depths. There were no clouds in the sky, and no-one envied those who, in their turn, were currently about their duties; skin shining with sweat.

    Summary

    The front of the villa has a raised patio area with a wrought iron railing, and three sets of glass panelled doors with the shutters open. Charles fishes in his pocket for the keys and unlocks the middle doors, flinging them wide open with a flourish.

    “Bienvenue dans notre maison,” he says, grinning insufferably and getting London all over his vowels. “Not bad, is it? I sort of forget every time.”

    Summary

    Inspired by @spader7's Terror Metal AU

    Thomas Jopson, comfortable now in his role as band manager, is looking forward to the other side of life in the music business: the fallow period between tours. Rest and recovery. Songwriting. Perhaps some light shenanigans and petty crime. You know. Just to keep things fresh. No doubt the rowdy Teras will be itching to get back on the road soon enough.

    But before then, the Teras will have to face new threats from unexpected corners. The landed gentry, for one.

    Themselves, for another.

    Summary

    “I’ll see you at home love,” he kisses Hickey and adds, “don’t kill him,” as he closes the front door quiet as always.

    Neither man is sure who he was talking to as a sudden silence falls over the flat with Billy’s departure. Robbie claps his hands as the nerves from tonight and being alone in Hickey’s presence hit at once.

    “Alright, fuckhead, let’s get you engaged so you leave me and mines alone for once.”

    Robbie laughs and puts an arm around Hickey waxing on about double dates and ignores the dangerous daggers Hickey’s staring into his skull.

    Summary

    It’s the summer of 1967 and everything is converging on Edmonton, New Albion. Magnus Manson moves back home to his old family farm, bringing with him a friend named Cornelius with visions of an isolated, self-sufficient commune. Edward Little moves from Toronto with the goal of finding himself, but finds himself stuck between two men—his dashing boss and a beautiful, haunted folk singer-- who have been trying to fall out of love with each other for ten years. Cryptozoologist James Fitzjames arrives on request of the mayor, a man who is determined to spend his last term in office proving the unproveable: the existence of Sasquatch. As the new arrivals try to find their place in a newly (re-)colonized world, those who have been here all along can tell that something is coming, and it’s not happy.
