    Summary

    “Why does this sound like a plot for one of the Ocean’s Eleven movies?” Jason asks, arms crossed over his skintight black bodysuit. “Seriously, all you’re missing are George Clooney and Brad Pitt.”

    Reminding himself that he can’t do this without Stray, Tim answers. “Well, we’ve got an international antiquities smuggling ring, a ton of bored rich people with nothing better to do than show off how much money they have, and we get to dress up in ridiculously expensive tuxedos, all the while concealing weapons and tech that will undoubtedly get us kicked out or worse if the bad guys find it. This almost sounds like something that happened to me last month but without the antiquities part.”

    Summary

    The Camelot Library and Archive of Arcane and Magical Artifacts' board has a new director and a new member. Merlin, the head librarian, is unimpressed by the flagrant nepotism. He is also unimpressed by the new board member's arrogance, looks, and attitude. Especially his looks. Especially unimpressed! He isn't affected at all. Nope. Not one bit.

    There will be adventure, and eventually there will be smut.

    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

    Over the years, John and Paul had shared jokes and stories. They'd shared meals. They'd shared song lyrics and melodies, strummed on guitars or picked out from the keys of the pianos in whatever room they'd happened to find themselves that night. They'd shared stages, and microphones, and studio recording spaces. They'd shared ideas, and they'd shared heartache; they'd shared triumphs and they'd shared loss.

    From the basements of Liverpool to the rooftops of London, without realising it, they'd been sharing her all along as well...

    Summary

    Hardly anything had been more difficult to endure for Matthias Køhler and Lukas Bondevik, two strangers unaware of each other's existence at the time, than the losses of their beloved cats. Fortunately, new furry companions came into their lives. They were at once poor and lost strays, but they were just as lovable. Although, they could never completely wash away the lamentations Matthias and Lukas held regarding their original companions.

    Someone along this journey of grief, these two strangers do cross paths. As they bond, perhaps a simple, hidden truth would rise out of the shadows: "One often meets with those whom one never expected to see again." (quote from Voltaire, Candide ou L'Optimiste)

    Hetalia and it's characters belong to Himaruya Hidekaz

    Summary

    “I’ll cut straight to the chase,” Liam announces. He leans forward, and Zayn is met with steely eyes and steepled fingers. “I’m willing to offer you fifty grand if you’ll enter into a small…partnership with me. This would be in addition to your salary at Payne Innovations, of course. Think of it as a bonus.”

    Zayn narrows his eyes. “What kind of partnership?”

    “A fake engagement.”

    “Oh,” Zayn says, relieved it’s nothing illegal. “Wait—what?”

    “A fake engagement,” his boss repeats slowly, as if he’s convinced Zayn’s comprehension skills are significantly lacking. “For six months. Maybe less if I can pull it off sooner but don’t worry—you’ll be paid the full sum regardless of how long it takes.”

    Zayn’s suspicious, and he doesn’t even know why. There’s nothing to be suspicious of because, clearly, Liam’s lost the plot. Zayn’s having a conversation with a complete nutter. There’s no other reasonable explanation.

    He clears his throat, searches Liam’s eyes for a sign he's taking the piss. “How long what takes?”

    A smile plays at Liam’s lips. “For me to be hired as the CTO at Titan Technologies.”

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Cilenti arrests, Charles Parker is given the thankless task of purifying the police and pursuing criminals at the same time. He's not happy about it. But at least he has expert (if unofficial) help.

    Updates planned but will be irregular (sorry.) Feedback welcomed, especially as revising to make crossover fic non-obnoxious to those with knowledge of only one fandom is underway.
