    Summary

    Got a few things planned here: Going to tell the tale of Victorian competitive exploration and the ungentlemanly battle for the capture of cryptozoological specimens - namely, the zebra boy!

    Told mainly through old pamphlets, albums, journals and vintage ephemera.

    It's going to 'get saucy' too - vintage style ;)

    Summary

    "This is a celebration," Hannibal said as he took his own seat and draped his napkin in his lap. "We're taking joy in being alive."

    "We could have gone out to a restaurant." Will's hand hovered over his utensils; he only picked up his fork once Hannibal picked up his.

    "I derive greater joy from cooking for my friends."

    Summary

    "What is it?" Hannibal asked.

    "It's very beautiful." She placed the paper flat on her lap, above the covers, careful not to smear the pencil with her fingertips.

    "It's not," said Hannibal. "There's something missing."

    Murasaki sighed. "Beauty is always missing. When you find it, it's only for a moment. The rest of the time, you search."

    Summary

    Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they've been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It's alright, though, he'll cope.

    It doesn't help, though, that he's in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr.
