    Summary

    Set in my home country of Ireland in the city of Derry, starting at the very end of 1971 and continuing until 1988, this story follows Gerard as a UK Army SAS-trained soldier in a standard army patrol unit patrolling the occupied city. Later, the higher-ups notice his bond with Erin, the eldest daughter of a local IRA leader, and he becomes an agent embedded in the Republican hotspot of the Bogside region of Derry with the task of passing on information to the Army from within the IRA.

    Frank, another soldier in the unit from the same training barracks who did not score to an SAS level, is also in the middle of a hurried love affair with Gerard, and becomes dangerously jealous...

    Every chapter is a mixture of the everyday and the military, creating a weird, choppy feeling... the same one you get walking around the everyday city you call home and suddenly being stopped by soldiers with automatic weapons demanding ID.

    A lot of people outside Ireland don't know about the civil war. Hopefully, this might change that a bit.

    Summary

Rather than sending him to a concentration camp, Eren convinces his superiors to use Levi as a translator. As the Allies land on the shores of Normandy, Eren develops affection for the Jewish man, and a forbidden love grows.

    Summary

    Brasidas prepares to leave Sparta in the first summer of the Peloponnesian War, two years before his path crosses with Alexios in Korinthia.
    He reflects on his past... and arms for action.

    ~~~
    This is an intra-canon series inspired by Brasidas, the historical figure. I loved his characterisation, and I really felt like the game didn't give me enough of his story, or ignored the historical reality, so this is my attempt to redress that.

    It is based largely on the history of the Peloponnesian War written by Thucydides, and the Parallel Lives of Plutarch. I've tried to be as historically accurate as I can, but I don't know everything. Where I have deliberately ignored history though, I note this in the footnotes.

    I also occasionally share cut scenes and other bits and pieces from this and my other fanfics to my tumblr: harpercybele.

    I hope you enjoy it! Jenn (Harper) :)

    Summary

    1986. San Fransisco, California. The height of the AIDS epidemic. People are dying left and right at alarming rates, there’s no cure, and the homophobic teenagers that litter the streets are almost as sickening as the virus.

    Ethan Nestor is a junior in a new high school, and he knows now that being openly homosexual during the ‘gay plague’ was the worst mistake of his life. He’s barely accepted at home, and school certainly isn’t any different.

    Mark Fischbach is a senior, king of the hill. Life is peaches and cream for someone so certain of their own sexuality to the point where they torment others. Ethan will be just another boy he can push around during school...…until one slip up sends him spiraling backward into a pit of self-discovery in uncertain times.

    Summary

    His posture has yet to give, and his expression challenges her curiously, the edge of his mouth pulling upwards at the abrupt return of her rapacious inquisitiveness.

    “Because you are a liar, Minister Blaisdell.” Her hands fold at her front, the opposition in her eyes is engaging. It was strikingly familiar. He found himself fond of her for it.

    He smiles fully now, in admission of defeat. He could rightfully argue that he has never lied. He could defend that he has only ever manipulated truths; withheld facts. Perhaps removed a variable or two, both people and stipulations, to ensure he’s not made a liar. He instead chooses, out of respect, to cease fire. Compared to his supposed ‘long-winded insult’ against her earlier, Marie had managed to be rather succinct in her own.

    Summary

    Our heroine has traveled much, only to find herself on the same London street as one Enola Holmes. After saving the girl from getting her goose cooked by an angry merchant, the conlady (it sounds so much fancier, no?) finds a fondness for the youngest Holmes and takes her under her wing. Jules, as she insists on being called, has her own mystery to solve while she guides Enola to finding herself, peace for her mother, and exploring England as it slides into a new era. Along the way, Sherlock is in hot pursuit of not only his wayward sister but a certain thief with ties to the French presidency - when he finds that they are connected, what was already a difficult case becomes a very messy one.

    Summary

    When Nicolo was younger - much younger, or perhaps just less war-worn - he was often told he had a face of an angel. He wondered now, as he did many times before, if that trait was somehow instrumental to his destiny in priesthood, and thus to his becoming what he now was…

    If he had a face of an angel, then the eyes across from him had to be the eyes of some vengeful god. It had to mean something… He dreamt of those eyes ever since he arrived into this strange, ruthless land - the holiest land. Those eyes must’ve been a premonition, or perhaps a catalyst in their own right…
