    Summary

    Hatchetfield, 1946

    After the Second World War has come to an end, the citizens of Hatchetfield move on in life, blissful in the presence of music and life and laughter.
    But when a major executive of a manufacturing company is found dead on the beach, murder most foul becomes the towns biggest story.
    Enter Paul Matthews, a mild-mannered reporter for the Hatchetfield Gazette who gets stuck with the story.
    In the wake of red-herrings, riots, and a trail of deaths that seems to lead to one killer, can Paul, with the help of the spunky barmaid, Emma, stop the killing?

    Basically, I got impatient and wrote a Noir Paulkins AU in the middle of writing Until it Sleeps, in spite of having a bunch of other WIP’s I need to finish

    Really hope you guys enjoy!!!

    Summary

    Paul wasn’t able to process it before it was too late- the hot, scorching pain that crawled up his right side to his elbow. He was left gasping for air, leaned heavily against the wall as he shot without any aim. And it dawned on him- his time was limited now more than ever. He’ll never be able to experience anything he wanted to do because he was the socially awkward, ordinary guy that nobody reached out to.

    Summary

    Paul's an unwilling recipient of the Gift, one of Hatchetfield's many myths that have fallen into the subject of rumor. Emma, upon learning of his visions and Gift, tries to be as supportive as she can possibly be and helps Paul discover more about himself than he could have ever imagined.

    This is a collection of Witch!Paul Drabbles and Snippets in no particular order, that will give more context to a one-shot I will be posting later on.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, Henry Hidgens' questionable experiments resulted in Emma - a not-quite-human intended to be little more than a test of his abilities and a songwriting tool. But feelings got in the way, and now his not-quite-human not-quite-daughter is allowed to roam the house and go out for groceries and walks and even earn a small wage assisting him. But problems arise when she starts doing things she's not allowed to. Namely, making a friend. A friend who helps her to realise that maybe her father isn't as great as she's always thought, and maybe there's more to her origins than she's been led to believe.

    In which a different man makes a different decision.

    edit: ^that was the original summary. Since the events of Nightmare Time are now pretty much common fandom knowledge, I'm gonna add a revised summary:

    Summary

    Emma's been dancing since she was three. She loved it, but that didn't really matter. What mattered was that Jane wanted to take dance lessons, so Emma had been signed up along with her. When Jane wanted to join the competition team, Emma was dragged in to audition.

    Finally, when she's twelve, Emma meets Paul, who's one of the first people to see her as Emma and not 'Jane's little sister'. She knows it's not Jane's fault, but being around Paul frankly feels incredible. He sees her as her own person, and he's funny, and he's cute when he gets all pink and nervous.

    Among the other things she hasn't quite figured out that Paul makes her feel, there's this thing he does that she can't quite explain, that not many others do. It's like... he doesn't ask anything of her other than her best.

    Summary

    Note: This story contains s//cide, strong implications of s//f-h//rm, mentions of a//se, and unreality. If any of this along with other aspects of this story disturb you, I will add the appropriate warnings before every chapter, but note that you may miss out on some parts of the plot. In his search for Emma, a ghostly Paul finds a video game she created to spend the afterlife in. All seems fine in Jane's literature club, until the game begins to change into something a bit different.

    Summary

    “So, why are you reading up on quidditch?”

    “Reasons. I need to get better, mostly.”

    If there was one thing Paul knew about quidditch, it’s that Emma was good at it. “You’re already good.” He exclaimed, and Emma shot him a confused glance, not used to the praise.

    “You've been watching me, Paul?” She smirked.


    Paul, Hufflepuff's resident "boring guy" runs into Emma, a chaser on the Slytherin quidditch team.
