    Summary

    Madeleine's, the sign reads in pretty, delicate handwriting. The sky is still dark and navy gray, the rising sun unable to pierce its blanket of snowclouds, and the inviting glow of the yellow-tinted light and the scent of coffee spilling out of what appears to be a cafe steals Javert's attention, and he stops for a moment, staring across the street.

    Summary

    Excited about Christmas, little Marie Pontmercy is drawn to one specific toy left by a mysterious man clad all in black: a wooden nutcracker with polished boots and frightful whiskers. Soon Jean Valjean finds himself pulled into a strange adventure—and meets a man he thought long dead.

    Summary

    [Edit: I'm currently doing a re-write of this fic - for now it contains haram behaviour that I hadn't thought about while writing. That was a lack of appropriate research. Read if you would like, but keeping that in mind. Might later archive this fic. 28/11/18]

    “My husband is paying more attention to the man at the other table, than to me.” Valjean, whose expression was hidden from the target, winked, before tearing his hand from Javert’s, and standing with a gruff “toilet”.

    The Fake Married Undercover mission we're all craving.

    Summary

    “I shall go,” the old man says abruptly.
    “What?”
    He nods. “I shall go, to stop the beast’s howling. I will leave before the morning; when the townspeople ask where I have gone, tell them that the beast asked for an old man to devour instead of a child. That he has at least a bit of a heart.”
    “He did not say he would devour you,” his daughter says thoughtfully.
    “Let them believe so.”

    Summary

    There is no conceivable reason why a week-long vacation with Valjean and his family should be anything less than a tiresome obligation. Javert can scarcely imagine why he ever would have agreed.

    In the weeks to come, Javert would often think of the moment on that muggy June afternoon when the knock sounded politely on his office door just two minutes past five, and he decided to invite trouble in.

    Summary

    “Am I hurting anyone?”

    “Other than yourself?”

    Sometimes Tyrion wishes his brother wasn’t so damned fucking perceptive about people when he spent most of his life not being perceptive about how much their sister is a piece of shit and ruined his life (even more than she ruined Tyrion’s, honestly), but fine. He does have a point.

    “I mean, given how much money you gave this one theater, you could ask them to let her meet you or something, I’m sure she has fans.”

    “Hell, no,” Tyrion immediately objects. “They already agreed to the flowers, I’m not — ah, shit.”

    “Wait, you send her flowers?”

    Or: in which Sansa is an opera singer trying to build a career and Tyrion really, really loves how she sings in La Traviata.

    Summary

    The park had been the ambitious brain child of some distant founder who'd heard a brief description of Epcot once and decided to open his own, time machine themed, "educational" amusement park. "Tipler Time-line" amusement park and historical village ("A walk through time!" Their slogan claimed) had been opened sometime in the mid eighties and had remained mostly unchanged since then.

    "Well jeez, Octavius, did you think the term history buff was some sort of challenge?".

    Summary

    "Listen, I meant it when I said that I wasn't in a fightin' mood, so you can quit right now before you get your ass handed to ya'."
    Octavius swallows and does not resist. "Why were you down here, anyways?" he asks.
    Jedediah searches his face for a moment. "Same reason you are, I'm guessin'." He doesn't seem to notice that he's still perched atop of Octavius.
    Jedediah's still watching him as he licks his lips with the intention to respond before--
    ---
    Slow build fic I'm writing to show the ever changing relationship between Jedediah and Octavius. Little angst-y, little headcanon-y. You know, the good stuff.

    Summary

    They argue like they breathe—but that’s not all there is to it. Newt flirts, and it’s disgusting.

     

    It’s not that Hermann minds flirting. The Kaidonovskies have propositioned everyone in the PPDC, or so it seems, and Tendo has intimated more than once that he wouldn’t mind spending some time in the lab, “talking numbers.” The Shatterdome is a small place. One has to practice somewhere.

     

    It’s just that Newt is so bad at it.

    Summary

    written for the kink meme prompt: "Hermann's cane ends up being lost/broken. Until he can get a replacement, he has to (reluctantly) rely on Newt to get around. Cue them wandering around arm in arm. It starts off annoying and a little embarrassing at first, but they soon settle into a routine that even when Hermann finally gets a new cane, they find hard to break."

    Summary

    When Willas Tyrell sadly loses his valet to marriage, he is the market for a new gentleman's gentleman. He was not banking on the new chap being one Clegane; six and a half feet of ruddy enormous Scotsman, bristling with ill-hidden truculence. When invited to a splendid society wedding, poor Tyrell finds himself stickily entrenched in yet another unwanted engagement - can the inimitable Clegane rescue his master from matrimonial shackles? Will all be happy ever after for the young master?

    It's the Jeeves and Wooster inspired fic that you all wanted. Honestly. What ho, top hole, all that jazz. Chapters to be added when polished up a little bit.
