    Summary

    “What possible use could Princess Josiane have for a revenant?” Thom demanded, bursting in on Delia at breakfast.

     

    “Thom, this is highly improper,” Delia complained. “I’m doing my best to re-establish myself as a lady of the court, and –”

     

    “A revenant, Delia,” Thom said, flinging himself down into a seat and taking a breakfast roll without asking. Delia eyed him resentfully. “A creature of the grave, drawn back from the Black God’s embrace. And besides, you’re my sister-in-law.”

     

    ***

    Delia, Thom, and the Great Resurrected Duke Scandal of 439 HE.

    Summary

    The Sufferer’s coup was a resounding failure. The Summoner’s, through freak chance, was a bloody and hard-won success. Hemo-discrimination is illegal, now, but old grudges die hard and the higher your blood the worse your chances of making it in the world. The classes that used to be ‘highbloods’ often fall through the cracks, and find work wherever they can get it.

    A story about a "concupiscent hire" walking Alternian streets under the rule of his Imperial Humility, the upheaval of an empire, and the whims of pure serendipity. (tumblr tag: A Heavy Heart>

    Summary

    Sam Wilson had just been outed by Captain America. 

    Quite an achievement, given that the man had been last seen nosing a plane into the Arctic fifty years ago. 

    The fact that Captain America's official biography outs him doesn't just have consequences for Steve Rogers.

    Sequel to Subjective Histories.

    Summary

    He slammed the shift into gear and floored the gas.
    The Challenger might have made it.
    The truck, at least, made it survivable.

     2+1 makes for one helluva partnership, plus one more makes for one helluva awkward situation.
    It's not that Eliot regrets finally sleeping with Hardison and Parker.
    It's not that Quinn is a problem per se...
    Eliot just hates the situation.
    The easy solution? Break up with the friends with benefits mercenary.

    He will never know how Quinn would have reacted because Eliot never arrives.
    Somewhere between Portland and their meeting point someone waits for the hitter.
    Someone who knows what they're doing.

    Now it's up to his partners and his not so clandestine affair to save him.
