    Summary

    Flint parks his bike in the back next to Miranda’s de-badged Subaru and sits for a moment.

    It’s humid and warm. Frogs croak and crickets are screaming in the trees around the little house. From the detached garage he can see the soft light of the kitchen filtering through the floral curtains. (Miranda had hated them, but put them up anyway. It wasn’t until months later Flint realized they reminded her of before.)

     

    Technically takes place before "It's a Long Way to Richmond", but the two story lines are mostly separate enough it doesn't matter which one you read first.

    Summary

    On the borders of safety, that's where I find peace. Where the black sand, meets the raging seas. I see the forces, for what they truly are. Yet I'm reminded, of my beating heart.

    Summary

    James takes his cue and starts tightening the laces. How ladies manage to wear the things, he will never know. Miranda offered to show him, when he last expressed his confoundment, but she hadn't yet managed to orchestrate a clothes swap. Given everything else about her, she'll probably have her way within the fortnight.

    He gives the stays one final pull before going to tie his work in place. Thomas usually leaves a bow, always symmetrical and somehow distinctively his, a dead giveaway that he never leaves this particular chore to the servants. James typically tries to copy his work. Something about leaving things as he found them feels correct, or at least appropriate.

    But, for all that James is hesitant to confront the situation directly, he knows that there are no secrets here. And so he loops the laces gracefully in his hand and ties a bowline knot, just as he has done a thousand times before. The finished product is efficient, almost effortless, and so distinctively his that it might as well be a signature.

    Or a confession.

    Or, James and Thomas flirt by tying Miranda's stays.

    Summary

    In which the rumors of Miranda's witchcraft are not, exactly, untrue.

    -

    "The change is small at first, creeping along her so slowly she does not initially notice. Darker earth here, a clump of grass there. Moss does not grow in the Bahamas, but it grows in Miranda's garden: a deep green that reminds her of childhood summers spent in the north of England, sprawling refreshment beyond the reach of smokeblack London.

    What follows is shoots of kale, small heads of lettuce, and strawberries, bitter and white—and more than four thousand miles from where they should be."

    -

    Or: In the early days of her time on the island, Miranda finds herself with abilities she can't entirely explain by natural causes. As represented by an exploration of grief and healing.

    Summary

    I have been cursed, she says to her mother one summer morning as they weed the herb garden together. It is hot even before nine o’clock, and the sun is already beating down on her straw hat.

    Her mother laughs. “You are always so melodramatic, Miranda.”

    “No, I mean it, Mother. I cannot help but see the path ahead, and I cannot stop myself from telling people about it.”

    Mrs. Barlow stops smiling. “My love, you have always been too perceptive for your own good,” she says softly. “You must learn to keep these insights to yourself, or I fear that your path will never run smooth.”

    “But how? How do I do that?”

    Her mother is no longer listening, her head inclined toward the front of the house and an intent expression upon her face. Miranda gives it a moment, and then they can both hear it now, the sound of a horse-drawn carriage making its way up the drive.

    “Helena,” Miranda says, for everyone else who should be at home is already at home.

    ---

    Or, Miranda Hamilton is Cassandra.

    Summary

    She wants something to slash, burn, and destroy, but, looking down at her soft hands and lady's skirts, she does not know how to do it. The empire may have fashioned James into a weapon for its wars, but it has done something more insidious to her. It has sanded away whatever sharp edges that may have been her birthright until she is no more a threat to it than the ocean smoothed pebble may be to the giant.

    Or, a Miranda Barlow lives AU where Peter puts the clock in a different room, Captain Flint is abducted, and Miranda joins the crew.

    Summary

    Believing that Thomas is dead, James and Miranda flee Boston at the dawn of the Civil War to make a new life for themselves in the wilds of the Arizona Territory, a forbidding desert landscape full of train robbers, cattle rustlers, and other outlaws . . . a place where they can begin again, and the past can lie buried.

    But the past rarely does.

    As the Arizona Territory's borders shift from Union to Confederate control and back again, as war sweeps the nation, as the West begins to succumb to the inexorable pull of progress, civilization and change, two grieving people find a flicker of hope, and the possibility of reunion with the love they thought they'd lost forever.
