    Summary

    One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

    (A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)

    Summary

    Slade doesn't train the rookies, that's one of his lines in the sand when it comes to working as an auror. No training, no naive ducklings following at his heels, and no responsibility for some stupid kid's life. Well, unless it's a direct order from President Prince, who is giving him exactly no choice in the matter. Then he supposes he'll have to deal with it; for exactly as long as he has to.

    Summary

    Damian isn't sure how he's ended up in this strange version of the 1960s, but he wants to go home to his Gotham. He wants his own father back and his own Grayson, not this kid in the bright yellow cape.

    Even if it does seem like his instinct to care about and protect Grayson seems to cross the dimensions themselves.

    Summary

    'You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.

    Summary

    "They don't want it to be real," Laurent says. He touches lightly, with his fingertips, where he's written LOVE WINS. "They want us to sell them a fantasy, and they want just enough reality that they can pretend it might happen to them, one day."
