    Summary

    Merlin and Arthur have 99 problems, all of which could be solved by talking, but where would the fun be in that?

It doesn't help when Merlin moves across the globe that very night and they lose contact. Now five years later, a recently divorced Arthur has the opportunity to reconnect with Merlin, but will these two idiots talk through their feelings or will they occupy their mouths some other way?

    This is your run-of-the-mill Arthur realizes he has feelings too late fic that ends in one of those big dramatic romance movie scenes with some smut along the way.

    Summary

    The fact that Potter truly has nothing to do with this is disorienting. Oh, Luna Lovegood’s membership in the Potter Society For Paining Snape's Arse doesn’t help matters, but the real issue is that her father, twice-baked cosmonaut Xeno Lovegood, has stumbled into relevance since The Quibbler went from covering sensational woo to championing The Chosen One.

    Summary

    Excerpt: "“Don’t be ridiculous. I could’ve killed you. It’s the least I can do. Please,” he added as an afterthought, his eyes begging Merlin. A small crowd had gathered and people were starting to murmur. The last thing Arthur needed was the press declaring that Uther Pendragon’s son had tried to kill a sorcerer with his car. But most important of all, Arthur couldn’t let him go. Even after all those years, he still couldn’t let him go."

    Summary: It's been almost ten years since Arthur shattered Merlin's heart. He's regretted it everyday since. But with Merlin's career as Nimueh's future successor and Arthur's marriage to Elena, he'd given up hope that there could ever be anything between them again. By chance, he hits Merlin with his car. Is this the second chance he'd given up on? Or is this going to end up in flames? (Spolier: it does get a little flame-y towards the end, but you'll see. Heh heh.)

    Note: I have written the entire story which is currently at 8 chapters and a little over 25,000 words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    Summary

    Hermione is fine, thank you very much. She just needs to finish curse breaker training, get an assignment abroad, and never have to think about her life in wizarding Britain ever again.

    Leave it to Bill to waltz in with his goddamn stupid handsome face and fuck it all up.

    [Bill/Hermione DDlg age play romance. Fluff and smut with a smattering of angst.]

    Qui-Gon Jinn used to love London, but it's no longer the city of his dreams.

    He also finds a familiar face, one he'd never expected to see again. But one that brings him utter joy.

    Summary

    The Dursleys were just a little crueler, a little less tolerant, and an obscurial is born.

    It’s a different Harry that leaves the Dursleys. A touch broken, but it’s okay.

    Excerpt:

    A loud thumping noise rattled the ceiling, and a little black spider fell onto the bridge of his nose, right in front of his glasses.
    They put me into the cupboard under the stairs, Harry thought numbly. It was the place for all the Dursleys’ broken things, discarded, unwanted, and they had left him there.

    Summary

    He feels broken, like the vase he shattered when he was five. Aunt Petunia made him pick it up in his bony fingers, and didn't even treat his cut afterward.

     

    Blood had dripped down his hand then too. Into the white porcelain sink. Like red paint ruining the purity of white sheets. It's this endless cycle of pain and torture. Here, he feels weak, aches enough to want comfort, love. Aunt Petunia won't give it to him. Not then, not now. And he understands. Everyone who comes into contact will someday die. If it's not later, it is soon.

    .
    .
    .

    When Harry fails his attempted suicide, the only place for him to go is Snape, a man who is bitter, and hates his guts.

     

    (A story of heartache and pain, and tears,
    but also of healing and solace, and laughter.
    Where contentment is found in the most unexpected place)

    Summary

    "Harry didn’t really think of himself as dangerous, most of the time. But, he thought, as his fingers ran back-and-forth-back-and-forth on the sink, no one becomes a murderer at eleven without consequences. A child raised to be a soldier will never understand how not to kill."

    Barbaric though it may be, the blood quill wasn't invented by Dolores Umbridge. In fact, it was used by most magical establishments, to magically seal agreements, contracts, and even laws.
    Blood quills were magically binding‒and while "I must not tell lies" isn't exactly a contract, after a few dozen or a few hundred repetitions... Well, it starts to stick.

    Summary

They almost immediately become friends, and spend most of their time getting lunch together, talking, drinking wine, making art, and falling slowly in love with one another.

    Featuring cameos of everyone's favorite (and least favorite) characters, gratuitous descriptions of paintings, long text messaging conversations, and one cranky cat.

    **EDIT AS OF NOVEMBER 8 2020: This fic used to be rated E, but I felt as though I was excluding the minors and the ace folks in the fandom. All E-rated content I had planned for this fic will be moved to the extras and epilogues I have planned for after the main fic is completed.**

    Summary

    When you’re a soldier in Afghanistan, sometimes you can forget anything exists except sand and sun and death; there’s so much life outside of the war zone.

    When you’re a recovering (NOT AN) addict forced into a box of four plain white walls, lowkey dodgy orderlies and a pompous brother, sometimes you need to take down some of your own walls; trapped animals go wild.

    When you’re John Watson and Sherlock Holmes, they always need each other.
