    Summary

    When a foul-mouthed, seditious foreigner turns up at your door, what are the benefits of letting him in?

    So wonders Carr, a young man living in a bayside nation that is troubled by internal battles. In his world, servants fight against masters, tonging watermen fight against dredging watermen, and landsteads eye one another's oyster grounds with greed. It seems to Carr that the only way in which to keep such warfare from entering his own home is to keep very, very quiet about certain aspects of himself which his family would not be able to accept.

    But "trouble" is a word that appears to delight the new visitor. He is ready to stir up danger . . . though he may not be as prepared as he thinks to confront what lies within Carr.

    (Note: This is set in my Toughs universe, and nearly all the characters are my own. However, one of Maculategiraffe's characters has taken a stroll into that universe, with kind permission from Maculategiraffe.)

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories + my rating system.

    Summary

    5/16/15: Updated w/more detailed RST in Chapter 8. Aw, yeah.

    Story synopsis: As he sets an elaborate trap for the diabolical Hannibal Lecter, Will Graham struggles to keep his dark impulses from overpowering him. In and out of dreams, he pushes himself to the limit when he gains access to Hannibal's inner machinations. Meanwhile, Hannibal falls for Will (and his elaborate ruse) hook, line, & sinker. The snake persues the mongoose, but the mongoose invites it: a mutual courtship is established. Will pays for its consummation, while Hannibal collects the spoils of his victory.

    Main Pairing: Hannibal/Will (romantic undertones, but no actual sex - though that doesn't mean they don't get it on). All boundaries between Hannibal and Will inevitably disappear; their love-beyond-friendship evolves from the forces of "fate and circumstance."

    NBC's Hannibal is my current favorite TV show. The following fanfic is my loving tribute to the fascinating world originally designed by Thomas Harris, and masterfully envisioned by Bryan Fuller and his team of creative colleagues. The characters, the Season 2 plotline, and the events/dialogue from "Mizumono" are not mine.

    Summary

    "Halvar leaned forward. His eyes were the color of an arctic sky. 'I am not a fool, Egon,' he said softly, 'so do not treat me as such.'"

    Egon had a position that won him respect, friends who raised his spirits, and lovers who gave him pleasure. Then a man came into his life who would take all that away from him. If Egon was lucky.

    As a slave, Egon has already reached the highest position he will ever achieve: he is the household's airship chauffeur. Forced to confront the contradiction between his ideals and his behavior, Egon must make a choice between continuing to pursue immediate pleasure or willingly submitting himself to another man for the sake of a higher goal. What Egon does not yet know is that his guide on this journey into the unknown is hiding a secret that will transform both their lives.

    Summary

    "He's out of it now," she said without preamble -- a sudden shadow at his bedside in a dress the color of spring. If he closed his eyes and drew his breath carefully over his tongue, Steve imagined he could still taste the faint trace of winter clinging to her skin like perfume. "Chem is analyzing the gas that triggered his regression, and Fury has Stark working on a kill switch for the arm until they've figured out how to block the gas's effect."

    "Good," Steve sighed, and opened his one good eye and summoned a smile. "Is he all right?"

    She gave a smile that was nothing like happy, and shook her head minutely. "He forgot himself in the middle of a mission and tried to kill his best friend. Would you be all right?"

      Excellent short Civil War story. Starts out in the style of Mark Twain but ends up more like Shelby Foote. And if, like the author, you wished Tom Sawyer would grow up, then this ought to do it.
