    Summary

    John thought house-sitting for Mrs Hudson would be simple and straightforward, but he wasn't expecting the truth-bomb she left him from Sherlock's New York past. After gorging himself on that gorgeous visual feast, he has to get a grip on himself before confronting Sherlock about it.

    Unbeta'd, written in less than 24 hours for come_at_once. HiddenLacuna prompted me with "FAQ." Well, there are some frequently asked questions answered here - and some rare ones as well. This is a rough trade draft and I think it's going to fit into a longer work I have in mind in the Bone Fiddle universe.

    Title comes from "Sister Ray" by the Velvet Underground. The inside of Sherlock's head sounded just like this in those days.

    It was a remarkable crime scene, and any detective worth his salt would be drawn to it. But to a mind that had specialised in deductive reasoning, it must be irresistible.

    Summary

    Invisible to See is a novel set in JK Rowling's Harry Potter universe, exploring one possible future for some of the key characters. It was begun in November of 2002 and completed in December of 2003; as such the story was conceived without benefit of The Order of the Phoenix, and cleaves only to prior canon.

    It is a swashbuckling tale of love, friendship, romance, redemption and vengeance, and of the messy business of coming to terms with the differences between who you are and who other people want you to be. Or, in other word, growing up. It is very, very, very loosely inspired by Pride and Prejudice, among other things.

    This story is a very long way from being a PWP, but it does involve some explicit and enthusiastic shagging; however, the characters are all over the UK age of consent.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    Summary

    “It’s not for long,” Hermione said. “By the time we get back to Hogwarts, the Unfettering Brew will be ready.”

    “Listen to you!” Ron said. “He’s got to get through a month with the Dursleys and a month at Malfoy Manor. With Draco Malfoy.”

    “Yeah, thanks,” Harry said, because he hadn’t just spent the last week contemplating just how much more horrible his summer holidays were about to be than they’d ever been before.

    Summary

    Saul didn’t mind working with all kinds of joints and he didn’t mind a break from Wolfe’s methods, but he was a regular with the denizens of West Thirty-Fifth for a reason: because, certain individuals excepted at certain times of the day, they weren’t idiots.

    Certain individuals had his telephone number, and Saul answered his phone on Friday evening to a summons.

    “I’m surprised you didn’t make Theodore make the call,” Saul said. “I thought you’d be afraid it might bite you again.”

    “Very funny,” Archie said.

    Summary

    In a universe where humans colonized the solar system along Cold War lines, it's possible to create AI "replacements" of the fallen. In theory, replacements are perfect copies: same body, same consciousness, and Dick Winters has his reasons for wanting no part of them. But when the war turns hot and Dick dies on a combat mission, Nix impulsively arranges for his replacement. When Dick returns to the troopship Toccoa, everything has changed, except—theoretically—him. Now he must accept an unwanted new identity, while Nix comes to terms with his reasons for refusing to let Dick stay dead.
