    Summary

    "Hermione pyörähti vielä kerran peilin edessä mutta ei löytänyt juhlakaavustaan enää ainuttakaan kissankarvaa. Hän nykäisi helmastaan vielä ruskean, säkkärän hiuksen ja vilkaisi kelloa. Kiirehtiminen oli tietenkin turhaa, sillä Ron oli aina myöhässä."

    Summary

    I tried to fit in and I changed myself in every way you can imagine. I just wanted to be part of the game. And then I realized - well - I create the game.
    - Conchita Wurst

     

    Picks up right after the events of Violets, Violins, Violence. Maybe the hero's journey for Clarice Starling came to an end, but that doesn't mean that she was ever guaranteed a happy ending. Now, perhaps unwittingly, she's being pulled back into another chess game, with the stakes even higher than before. No one is exactly who they seem, and not even the chess pieces are black and white.

    Summary

    “Far be it for me to suggest, but I can think of better ways for you two to resolve your tensions. And I think the root of the problem stems from the fact that you two both can, also.” Napoleon looked up, waiting to catch the result of his ambush on Illya’s face. “Though I know I venture my opinion at my own Peril.”

    The corner of his mouth quirks up, Napoleon clearly pleased with his own wit even though he does his best to hide his tally point against the edge of his glass.

    Illya’s mouth forms a thin line. He gets that it was meant to be a joke, but it is not funny. Nor are Napoleon’s other insinuations.

    “It’s ten in the morning, Napoleon,” Gaby protests. Too early for puns, or scotch.

    “Is it?”

    “Do you reach a point in your day when you stop drinking?”

    “Hmm. Do you reach a point in yours where you stop deflecting?”

    Summary

    Alpha Moriarty found out Mycroft's deepest secret: he's an Omega.
    For some reason all he did was get him his suppressant pills and tuck him in with a blanket... and invite him to a jazz concert.
    sadly the Jazz date had to be rescheduled...but business comes first
    Follows directly after Complex Like Math, Smooth like Jazz (and will make more sense if you read that first although there is a slight recap)
