  3. Summary

    Sydney and Sark try to do better than Irina and Jack did, with limited success. They work with each and against each other, they love, they betray, they run from each other and back until they almost, almost find some peace. As much as people like they are can find.

    As Weiss puts it, "Welcome to the human race."

    Summary

    He hadn’t come here with a contract. He’d come here to get the faces out of his head: the bloodless dead sprawled in heaps through the streets of Beauclair, the morning after the rampage Detlaff had unleashed; the blank eyes of the boy in the orphanage tilting his head to let Orianna drink from his throat, with the lullaby she’d been singing him still hanging in the air.

    Wasn’t working that well so far.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Geralt held up the report. “Just over the border in Vicovaro, last night. The ones in the city will know by tonight, if they don’t already.”

    Emhyr nodded and turned to the envoys. “This is fortuitous timing, then. Lord Neath, Lord Estain, you have met Master Geralt. For the last year, he has been overseeing a covert mobilization under my direct authority.” They both gawked at him. “It will shortly no longer be covert. You will go with him to the eastern wing and be briefed at once, and then immediately go to the mages’ circle and depart the city by portal. I wish your respective dukes to be fully informed and their forces on high alert by the end of the day. It is possible that attacks may be launched anywhere across the Empire almost at once. You may go.”

    They followed Geralt to the eastern wing with vaguely indignant expressions. “And I actually believed you were his lover,” Lord Neath said to Geralt sourly. “Trust the emperor to make everyone think he’s finally in his dotage as a blind. And this mad determination to slaughter every last corpse-eater of the world also, I suppose? Of course. So what in Lebioda’s name is really going on?”

    In which Geralt swears an oath the an emperor, but really to humanity. Also, he really is Emhyr's lover.

    Hilarious hijinks with bad ass modern Bucky. The timeline is also a master piece of sardonic history and weaponry expertise.

    Summary

    Story is COMPLETE.

    You could pay a psychiatrist to listen to you talk, to help you understand yourself and the situations and people around you, to ask the questions that will make you think more clearly, being quietly supportive while challenging your beliefs.
    Or you could take a road trip with your sister Cora and get all of it for free.
    Three months on the road, and Derek returns to Beacon Hills at peace with his past and with himself and with a new perspective on life, especially when it comes to the importance of certain people in it and what to do about it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There was finesse in relating to dogs: They weren’t wolves, but, then again, neither were werewolves. Both Cora and Derek went down to a crouch as Claire walked to the library door to open it. Two massive Great Danes rushed out, their nails clicking on the white and black-checkered tiles of the entryway.

    They stopped in their tracks, sliding a little, when Derek and Cora’s scent hit them. The bigger of the two dogs, a black male, approached Derek, who was looking down. The dog whined a little and licked Derek’s mouth, expressing that he appreciated but was not fooled by Derek’s submissive stance, and had no intention of picking a fight. Derek stood back up. The dog got on his rear legs and placed his paws on Derek’s shoulders. They were the same height. Derek scratched the dog behind the ears, and the dog wagged his tail.

    The female, slightly smaller, walked playfully to Cora, pushing her with her chest so that Cora had to hug her or fall over. Cora laughed at the demonstrative dog and rubbed her neck.

    “Well, my dogs sure love you. They are usually a bit more standoffish, especially Jordan here,” Claire said, petting the male who had fallen back on all four and was standing by her side. She smiled at her affectionate female dog. “Makie is always a bit of a clown, though…”

    “They are beautiful,” said Derek.

    “And I can jog anywhere at anytime with them without anyone ever bothering me,” said Claire, smiling. “Let’s have that coffee, shall we?”

     

    The one where Laura lied and Derek and Cora visit their older brother's girlfriend, who never knew he'd died in the fire, only that he never came back to her. Or, Cora reveals that the past Derek thought he knew, and the Laura he'd believed in, were very different.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sometimes he just can't sleep. On nights like that he turns wolf and sleeps under the porch, wrapped up in a blanket. Usually his cousins find him in the morning and play-pounce on him until he gets up.

    He stops showering some time in June. He doesn't smell bad, not really; he just smells feral.

    This isn't particularly canonical, yet it's my headcanon of Derek and Laura from the fire to the beginning of the series. It balances and explains the guy who could live in the burned out wreck of his family home and also keep himself shaved and clean and capable of (at least) surface interaction with humans. Also, 'I'm not a boy, I'm a wolf' is the perfect summation of how Derek thinks in contrast to Scott and the bitten wolves.

    Honestly, I may like Canon Divergant AUs of Walking Dead better than the show. This one hurts, but then it gets better.
