    Summary

    A platoon of stranded Allies discover a child in the woods.
    Will Graham gains the trust of this silent boy on their journey to return home.

    This was originally a one-shot, which I never do. I was reading Hannibal Rising and got crazy inspired to start this. There is absolutely no sexual tone to their relationship until Hannibal is much older, if we get to that.

    Summary

    In 1923, Dr John Watson is on trial for the murder of his lover, Mary Morstan, a writer of popular mysteries. If convicted, he will hang. Sherlock Holmes sets out to prove his innocence, but finds himself more and more infatuated with the handsome doctor, and deeper and deeper inside the bohemian world of London's painters, playwrights, and poets. Will he uncover the evidence needed to acquit him in time?

    Excerpt: "Watching the man’s stoic expression from the side, I began to recognise that this was not just another puzzle to stave off my boredom. I had not often been in romantic relationships, and certainly did not believe that a person could fall in love with another person across a room, just by looking at them. But when I saw the light glinting off his hair, the look of patient fortitude on his face, and knew the effort it must be costing him to maintain his composure, I felt that I could not let him die. John Watson had to be saved, and some fate had brought me here to do just that."

    Summary

    Richie picks up this time. “Uh, hello?” He sounds bewildered.

    “Hi, Richie. It’s Mike Hanlon.”

    There’s a long pause. “Fuck off, Mike Hanlon? From Derry?”

    Mike laughs. “That’s me. How are you, Trashmouth?”

    “I’m fucking incredible. What’s up, man? This is weird.”

    “Robert Gray died this morning in prison.”

    Richie takes a second to place the name. “Pennywise? That fucking pedophile clown?”

    “That’s the one.”

    “Good, couldn’t have happened to a better guy. How?”

    “Natural causes.”

    “Fuck, that sucks. I was really counting on that stereotype of child molesters getting stabbed in prison.”

    **

    AU: Pennywise is just Robert Gray, a garden-variety pedophile serial killer, and when he dies in prison, Mike reunites the Losers in order to honor the vow they made as kids to desecrate his grave. Good news: they still like each other. There's a lot of smiling.

    Summary

    Post mountain incident, Jaskier limps back to Oxenfurt with his tail between his legs, deciding to throw himself into his academic career in the hopes of distracting himself. Unlucky for him, all his students want to talk about is a certain White Wolf.
    ---

    “Well, it’s just...” Rimmond said, still giggling, “we wanted to ask you something, actually? Um, professor... how did you meet the White Wolf? Only nobody interesting ever passes through this town, and if we’re supposed to go and meet our heroes...”

    Ah, Jaskier thought.

    “Never meet your heroes, Rimmond,” he said, trying to sound wry and humorous. He wasn’t sure he was pulling it off. “They’re usually not very nice people.”
