    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

     

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. Patrick Butcher, university librarian, part-time novelist and doting dad, is struggling with his new book and feeling a bit melancholy in a way he can't quite put his finger on.

    It isn't going to take much to end up in each other's orbits.

    Summary

    Dr Ben Solo can’t wait to escape his lecture theatre for the peace and quiet of summer break, but it seems fate and his own dark desires are in collusion, gifting him the one thing he knows is forbidden. Rey Niima has spent her entire semester fantasizing about her professor to the point of obsession, so when a door opens for her to spend time with Mr Tall, Dark and Brooding, she jumps at it and to hell with the consequences. Both Rey and Ben think they know what they’re doing, but life decides to teach them a different kind of lesson.

    Summary

    Brett sighed and looked down at the folder in his hand.
    “Your name is Peter, right?”
    “Lawyer.”
    “Peter, we haven’t even started talking. Let’s just take a minute to ease up.”
    “Lawyer.”
    “Bud, we haven’t charged you with a crime. This is just talking.”
    “Law. Yer.”

    Goddamn.

    Summary

    "We finally found a pattern with the high-profiles of the current League of Villain. Shigaraki Tomura, the current leader; Dabi, the head of Vanguard Squadron; and Shinsou Hitoshi, the League's legal businesses' owner... they all have gone to seminars held in Australia whenever the speaker is this particular researcher. We even have pictures of them attending his graduation party. We suspect that he might be connected to the League."

    Ground Zero couldn't believe his eyes.

    That's the love of his life, the shitty nerd Deku!

    --

    The question Izuku had asked was not 'can I become a hero?', it was 'why do villains become villains?'.

    --

    Prompt: Criminologist!Deku are Good Friends with some high profile villains because they helped him with his research. Suspicious Heroes places Ground Zero as his bodyguard so he could spy on the researcher. Too bad they didn't know that this particular nerd is the love of Bakugou Katsuki's life, the childhood friend who left their city before he even realized that he was hopelessly in love with the shitty nerd.

    Summary

    “It’s very nice to meet you,” said the erstwhile ice-cube. He had a warm, deep voice; unaffected by his long sleep as the rest of him. It really was spooky. Francis had looked up the daguerreotype: a rusted and pitted old thing, scanned into some museum’s system, taken nearly two centuries ago of a man who had hardly aged a day since.

     

    Francis Crozier, a grumpy history professor, is assigned to introduce a recently unfrozen Victorian naval commander to the wonders of the modern era. Sparks fly, and all that.

    Summary

    Because if there are places where magic survives in the 21st century, one of those places is surely Oxford. Because the fellowship of Camelot deserved happier fates than the show gave them. Because it's hard for a king to save the world, and harder for a prophecy to be broken. And because, though there are many imaginings of what happened to Merlin, surviving into a new world, I wanted to write this one.

    This work is tagged for Arthurian mythology (and related fandoms) because, as some readers may notice, I've borrowed ideas from medieval literature and modern retellings, which will be acknowledged in the respective chapters.

    Weekly updates planned for Wednesdays; begun 10 June 2020. Note as of 20 August: this fic was planned to be finished by the end of the summer; it will not be. It has grown in the telling, and while it is plotted and sketched out to its end, the regularity of updates is very likely to suffer as the academic year begins. Subscriptions recommended to interested parties.
