    Summary

    Historical/Human AU set in 1939. Once, Pearl White was a rising star in Hollywood.

    Summary

    The Time Team goes to mid-century NYC to keep Rittenhouse from sabotaging the historic integration of the country's biggest opera house. Connor nerds out about music history. Flynn translates Italian. Rufus and Lucy worry.

    The title is taken from the description of Marian Anderson's character in the opera, "Del futuro l'alta divinatrice..."

    The work is for @extasiswings because she encouraged the use of this event as a scenario. The result is shorter and fluffier than the topic perhaps deserves, but we have suffered enough as fans of this show. [ETA: It became less fluffy while I was editing it. Quick, everyone, simulate shock.]

    Summary

    Take History. Add Dragons. Stir until a Genius makes friends with them and things explode. Take the resulting stock of Hiccup and tamed dragons and set it to simmering in 1040 AD, in the Scottish Hebrides. Add more Kings, Emperors, Romans, Vikings, Conquerors, Spies, Warriors, Thieves, Knights and Nobles, to taste. Take cover, and sit back to watch the fireworks.

    In Real Life, 1040 was the tail end of the Viking Age; Europe was 50 years from the First Crusade; the Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches have not yet formally split, William the Conqueror is a frightened teenager in Normandy, the Byzantine Empire is collapsing after a revival under one of their great emperors, and the great Viking Harald Hardrada is a Varangian mercenary there, while the Caliphates are having a rough time from the new Seljuk Empire and their own internal tensions. The most corrupt Pope in history holds Rome, the Reconquista of Spain is underway after the collapse of the Caliphate of Cordoba, and the Norse religion is a pale shadow of what it once was, hanging on around the Baltic Sea, Iceland, Greenland... and the Hebrides.

    And into that heady mix, there is now Hiccup and Berk.

    Yeah, history won't know what hit it.

    Summary

    Some matches are made in heaven, some in hell: and some, quite rare and quite peculiar, are made on earth.

    Knowing the King of Time adds many complications to Shiro's life; on the other hand, the talented young exorcist shows a remarkable knack for complicating the life of Prince Samael as well. Side by side, they stand before an uncertain future as... as what, really? Friends? Partners in crime? Colleagues, enemies, soulmates...? Or players in a game more vast and complex than either of them could have guessed?

    (I own nothing, just borrowing from Katou Kazue.)

    Summary

    28 January 1784: when Admiral and Mrs Graves are awoken by a courier bearing exciting news from Elizabeth and John Graves Simcoe, the Admiral takes this opportunity to look to the past -and the future.

    Basically a one-shot spin-off of "The Colonel's Portrait" with a lot of prequel-ly and some sequel-ly moments including a trip down memory lane to Bath in the late 1760s, an offensive satirical Rev War poem, a baby being born and mild mentions of contemporary politics.

    Summary

    “Watch his eyes,” Oleg had said to Illya, before Illya flew to Berlin. “It’s only hearsay at this point, but we know this much: it’ll be almost impossible to tell, but if you watch the eyes, you’ll know it isn’t a he at all.”

    He knows far before he ever gets a glimpse of Napoleon Solo’s eyes, however, that what he is up against—what has beaten him across the Berlin Wall with prize physicist and roboticist Udo Teller’s daughter in tow—isn’t human.

    Summary

    Constance stands, hands on her hips. The rooms she’d struggled to lay claim to for all that first, lonely time now seem too large again, and echo uncomfortably. In truth, she’s not lived here for weeks, maybe months – they’ve merely been a place to hold changes of clothes and somewhere to sleep. The very quiet that had seemed balm and comfort now seems incomplete, constrained, an itch across her skin.

    Still, these walls hold memories, the very furniture bearing the weight of secrets shared and love affirmed, sometimes in the strangest and most unexpected of ways.

    *

    Another installment in the long series of wartime correspondence (and other pieces based around the black box that is the Musketeers during the Spanish War).

    Summary

    An alternate history of WWII, based on better cooperation between the Axis Powers. Warning is due to content of later chapters, and it will touch base on some unsavory things. As for the characters being dinosaurs, idk. I suck at summaries. Enjoy. It’s techically an original work, I just borrowed the term Novaraptor for a few characters’ species, since it’s rather generic, but I threw the Primal Carnage tag in anyway. Enjoy.

    Count Dracula didn't die when he was supposed to. Based on an original canon with foundations in Bram Stoker's source material and expanding across history, Vlad's journey spans the reaches of time itself, watching him devolve from a feared warlord, godlike sorcerer, to a dehumanized weapon of war watching the world march past in mortar fire and all the horrors of the modern war.

    Part 1 deals with Dracula's fall after the events of the book and continues up until World War I.
