    Summary

    (Not your average characters watch their series fic, but you'll just have to see for yourself.)

    L dangled the note in front of him. It claimed the disk that had magically appeared would help with the investigation. Was this a trick? Was this another evolution of Kira's power? Was it a different supernatural force trying to help them against Kira?

    He didn't know, but the only way to find out was to view its contents.

    Summary

    In this modern day retelling of Hades and Persephone, Kylo and Rey are rulers of neighboring nation states that were once embroiled in a millennia-long war.

    Chapter 10 Excerpt:

    “Hello, Persephone,” he murmured – fingers itching to brush a silken lock of chestnut hair away from the one-eyed mask she wore. It was crafted from leaf after leaf of red, yellow, and green Devil’s ivy – the same that grew in Rey’s orangery. “How very… Lush you look this evening.”

    Her color deepened, and as she chewed on her lower lip, he felt certain that she’d nibbled at that delectable expanse of flesh exactly like this – when she’d touched herself at his command.

    Summary

    [In military science, Force Multiplication is an attribute or a combination of attributes that multiplies the effectiveness of a soldier or weapon, giving a small number of troops or individuals the ability to accomplish greater tasks than without it.]

    Jack Morrison is 26, just completed the first half of his Special Forces "Q-Course," and just got airdropped to a secret base in the snowy mountains of Idaho along with the other "supersoldier candidates."

    [Common force multipliers are: terrain, geographical features, weather]

    He doesn't really know how to feel about his new "number" (76) or the fact that he's joined a program that will "genetically and phenotypically modify him, as well as train him extensively, to survive better against the bots."

    [Training and experience]

    He never thought he was particularly "special" (though he'll be the first to admit he's always hoped for an adventure worthy of legend).

    [Tactics and intelligence]

    And he thought SEP would just be more training

    [Morale]

    Until he met "Soldier: 24"

    [Friends]

    Gabriel Reyes

    [Inspiration]

    And Jack experienced a revelation

    And they changed the course of history.

    Summary

    "Why don't you just tell me why Hank thinks I run a book club on the first Monday evening of the month, and why he's offered to bring artichoke dip, which sounds awesome by the way, to the next meeting?”

    Nick closed his eyes, and when he spoke his voice was a rush of words. “Because it was better than him thinking we were having sex?”

    Monroe had always wanted to belong to a Book Club, but he'd never imagined it would be to help out Nick.

    Summary

    Though Bond returned to MI6 after his ill advised jaunt around the globe with Madeleine Swann, Q still struggles with his own feelings for the agent in spite of the fact that Bond is clearly not the same man as the one who walked away from their friendship on Westminster Bridge.

    James regrets having left London and MI6, but it is nothing in comparison to the remorse he feels for abandoning Q. However, James has made repairing their friendship his primary goal in the hope of gaining something he never realised he needed as badly as he does.

    But Bond really hasn’t had a good time of it lately. Breaking his leg in a freak accident, James camps out at Q’s flat when the white-washed, soulless walls of Medical become too much for him to tolerate. Unfortunately, his leg is only the beginning of Bond’s health problems, and Q is conscripted into being James’ caretaker.

    Confined to the close quarters of Q’s flat, the Quartermaster finds himself opening back up to the agent, but will the two men find their way to one another as they should have done years ago, or is time no longer on their side?

    Summary

    Aslan didn't bring back Peter- Lucy did.

    -

    Lucy has not been innocent since she was a child. She carries the Deep Magic in her veins, holds the powers of life and death in her hands. She can break the universe apart, shatter entire armies with a single whispered word.

    She has become a goddess, and she understands Aslan so much more intimately than anyone else. She knows he cannot possibly be all-benevolent, cannot be selfless and righteous in all the ways she used to believe he was.

    She is not, after all. No God is. Each operates according to their own wishes, their own agenda.

    Let Aslan do as he wishes, as long as he does not cross her. If he does, though...There is always a hierarchy, and among gods it is based on power. Lucy knows the Deep Places. She knows Old Magic, stretching back to worlds such as Avalon and Yomi and Shambhala and all the other places that were ancient when Aslan learned his first Deep Word. She knows what made Aslan, and she knows how to unmake the magic holding him together.

    The White Witch's mistake was using the Deep Magic that Aslan himself breathed into being- Lucy's power comes from a far older, far hungrier place.
